JUST WHEN you think the American right can’t get more offensive or insulting towards modern women, along comes an anti-feminist throw back to prove they’ll never accept a woman in charge.
From the hog-tied mind of a woman in bondage, though not the fun 50 Shades type; the kind that holds her hostage to a past that puts women out of the national leadership picture forever.
Charlotte Allen over at the National Review on why Sandy Hook happened:
There was not a single adult male on the school premises when the shooting occurred. [...] There didn’t even seem to be a male janitor to heave his bucket at Adam Lanza’s knees. Women and small children are sitting ducks for mass-murderers. [...] But in general, a feminized setting is a setting in which helpless passivity is the norm. Male aggression can be a good thing, as in protecting the weak — but it has been forced out of the culture of elementary schools and the education schools that train their personnel. Think of what Sandy Hook might have been like if a couple of male teachers who had played high-school football, or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys, had converged on Lanza. – Charlotte Allen
In one fell swoop, Charlotte Allen discounts women, because we don’t have the brawn of a man. But this is nothing coming from Allen. Her notion of a bright idea begins with “A GOP Cure.” Guess what it is? Sarah Palin for president in 2016. Allen doesn’t reconcile this thought with her drivel on a “feminized” environment at Sandy Hook.
Adam Lanza force his way in into Sandy Hook Elementary School armed with a high-powered semiautomatic Bushmaster rifle, a semiautomatic Glock and a SIG Sauer, with plenty of high-capacity clips to create whatever havoc and bloodletting he wanted. A jock and fat boys “converging” on a lunatic child hell bent for carnage would have just gotten killed.
We learn that through the actions of principal Dawn Hochsprung, who reportedly “lunged” at Adam Lanza “trying to overtake him.” She was killed for her efforts. Victoria Soto, a 27-year-old teacher, was killed reportedly trying to hide her students.
“Male aggression” and sheer madness is what has caused most of the massacres in this country.
Charlotte Allen doesn’t know what she’s talking about, but that she’d take to the web to prove it at NRO illustrates yet another example why Republicans have lost so many women. It also explains why the entire leadership of the Republican Party remains a bunch of pasty white guys.
The Republican right has forgotten the legacies of Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher, as well as so many other female leaders across the world charged with protecting their nation and the people the govern, but they also don’t seem ready for an American version as commander in chief.
According to Charlotte Allen, a female president would be a figure head surrounded by brawny men in shoulder pads. It’s unknown whether a “feminized” commander in chief would be capable of making decisions about war and peace herself.
The American right is a scourge, but the females held hostage by that ideology would hold this nation to the laws of the 1950s forever, if given the chance.
