Media darling and left-wing feminist activist Sandra Fluke is yet again in the news. She gave an interview to some CNN program called “Starting Point” that nobody watches, just like the rest of the programming on CNN but I digress. Ms. Fluke had some choice words for Republicans.
“I talk to women across the country, they really do feel like this is a shift,” said Sandra Fluke.
Sandra Fluke, who rose to national prominence when she was attacked by Rush Limbaugh following her testimony in favor of increased contraception access, said Wednesday that many women personally feel “they’re under attack” from GOP policies.
“When you look at the facts, quantitatively, there have been a record number of bills in the House to limit reproductive health. … Women feel that. I talk to women across the country, they really do feel like this is a shift, and not in their favor,” Fluke said on CNN’s “Starting Point.”
So once again in the mind of Sandra Fluke and other left-wing feminists, women are nothing more than vaginas and uteruses. The only issues that women care about are abortion and birth control in their minds. Something tells me that not necessarily true. Women, just like men, I’m sure care more about whether or not they will have a job in the failed Obama economy for starters. This whole “war on women” is a distraction from the real issues invented by the Democrat Party and their allies in the media and the feminist movement.
Finally, it’s an insult to say that you must support abortion in order to be pro-woman. That’s just simply not true. There are many pro-life feminists out there. Supporting women’s equality and women’s rights is a lot more than just supporting abortion or dressing up as a giant vagina.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Sandra Fluke interview without her whining about the criticisms about her.
The former Georgetown Law student said it was “fair” to say critics were waging a war on her personally.
“Certainly you’ve been under attack, so it’s certainly fair to say there has been a war on you from some people,” asked CNN host Soledad O’Brien.
“That’s probably fair,” responded Fluke.
Fluke is slated to speak Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Previewing her speech, Fluke said she would look to draw the distinction between President Obama’s record on women’s issues and that of his Republican opponents, presidential nominee Mitt Romney and vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan.
“Talk about what kind of policies for women Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan have stood for, and what the president has stood for on issues like fair pay, access to reproductive healthcare, violence on women,” Fluke said.
Sandra Fluke is no longer just an average person advocating an issue. She’s now an operative of the Democrat Party and someone in the public eye. She really needs to quit whining about what people say about her. This is politics, people say nasty things about their opponents all the time. Ms. Fluke either needs to learn to let the attacks roll off of her or get out of the public eye.
Besides, I thought feminism was about gender equality. Part of that gender equality is being able to take criticism and yes, even personal attacks.
We need more real feminism that pushes for strong, independent women instead of the government dependence that the Sandra Fluke’s of the world promote.
