The radical left professes a love for recycling, and that extends to silly ideas. Katherine Timpf posted a story at National Review, “Married Couple Launches Movement to Keep Trump Supporters from Having Sex”. Before I even clicked the link its title reminded me of a similar story that made the rounds leading up to the 2012 election. Over at Feministe, a writer who goes by Jill posted a screed against sleeping with anyone whose political views aren’t in lock step with the Radical Left:
Obviously people can marry whoever they want, and this is just, like, my opinion man. But don’t marry someone who votes Republican. Don’t even sex someone who votes Republican. Why? Because the Republican party is hostile to women’s humanity. The Republican party is hostile to women having the most fundamental rights to their own bodies. The Republican party is hostile to gay people even existing, let alone enjoying the same rights and privileges as straight citizens. The Republican party campaigns on racism.
Don’t sleep with that guy.
After that she starts to get angry. You can read the rest, but it’s exactly what you’d expect. That brings us to Timpf’s story:
An Ohio married couple with two young daughters has launched a movement called “Vote Trump Get Dumped,” which calls on people to refuse to have sex with Donald’s supporters.
“I don’t want a sexist, racist, war-crime-threatening man leading my country,” wife, mother, and Vote Trump Get Dumped co-founder Chandler Smith told National Review Online on Wednesday. “If Donald objectifies women, he’s objectifying 50.8 percent of America and that’s not cool.”
While there’s a lot on that last paragraph that can be pulled apart, in the name of keeping this post relatively short let’s just look at that last sentence about objectifying women. Would that include supporting serial sexual harassers, as I brought up two years ago when Democrats brought their war on Women to Northern Virginia
This also brings us to the uncomfortable question that no leftist wants asked about Hillary Clinton: How does any self respecting woman put up with a man who has so little respect for her that he continuously humiliates her publicly? In my opinion, I’ve always seen their marriage as a power relationship, nothing more. If Bill had any respect for his wife he wouldn’t chase every skirt that walked in front of him (whether willing or unwilling) , and if Hillary had any respect for herself she would have gone Lorena Bobbitt on Bill or left him long ago. I don’t think she’s stupid enough to not have known about all of his cheating on her, nor does Hillary strike me as the battered wife too afraid to leave. But however convenient for her career goals, how can the treatment that she allows from her husband be seen as any kind of role model for women?
For that matter, if you’re still giving these guys an excuse based on their good works how would you feel if your wife/sister/daughter was married to a man who treated her the way Clinton or Spitzer did? How about Ted Kennedy? Somehow if she responded “It’s OK, he fully supports my reproductive rights” you’d be calling friends and family for an intervention. So where are the feminists, whose silence in failure to condemn these men, speaks so much louder than words?
OK, how about Bernie? You mean, the candidate who wrote about womens’ rape fanatasies? Yes, he’s backtracking today, calling it poorly written fiction. But if something like this was written by someone running as a Republican what kind of reaction do you think we’d be getting from the Radical Left?
This whole story isn’t a major new item, and from the looks of things this is just another blurb about a handful of loons whose notion of equality is trying to make everyone else around them as miserable as they are. If they’re serious about holding their own candidates to the same standards as others (they don’t – leftists don’t hold their own to any kind of standard), then these Lefties really wouldn’t be able to sleep with anyone who supports their chosen candidate, either.
And if I were a young Trump supporter who happened to be single (I’m none of the three), and a young lady gave me some “Vote Trump get Dumped” tirade, I’d probably politely suggest that she go (perform a physically impossible sexual act upon) herself.
And based on her own standards she wouldn’t qualify either!
