House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
I have previously commented on Nancy Pelosi’s vile statements. However, there is a limit for her when bigotry towards a key Democratic coalition group becomes too visible. Due to the outrageous and sustained anti-Semitic statements of Rep. Ilhan Omar, Nancy Pelosi, in damage control mode, drafted a worthless statement opposing anti-Semitism.
The Democrats’ draft measure condemning anti-Semitism, which the House will vote on this Wednesday, is a useless and transparent attempt to distract from a serious problem of their own creation. The melodramatic decree mentions Alfred Dreyfuss, Leo Frank, Henry Ford, and “anti-Muslim bigotry”—because, hey, even when Jews are being smeared it’s about Islamophobia—but not once does it condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar or the strain of Jew-hatred she is helping normalize on the left. In fact, the resolution, teeming with useless platitudes, is one that even Omar could probably support.
But even this toothless wonder sent the equally anti-semitic Woman’s March leader Linda Sarsour into a Facebook fit of rage.
“Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men. God forbid the men are upset – no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos,” she wrote.
This is truly amazing. Nancy Pelosi, the two-decade Congressional standard bearer for everything Progressive is being called out by a supposedly fellow Progressive as “a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men”!? Note that this Intersectional Progressive accuses a “white feminist” of “upholding the patriarchy”!
But that’s not all folks, according to the recent Colorado Democrat congressional candidate Saira Rao, Nancy Pelosi is a “white supremacist“!!?? That whiff of a revolution beginning to devour its own is getting stronger.
In the end Nancy Pelosi caved to the potent anti-semitic wing of her party.
Democrats cannot simply denounce the anti-Semitism expressed by Omar without ritual obeisance to the identity politics that drives their party, and Omar’s anti-Semitism has elicited an outpouring of support. … Now Democratic leadership in the House will not stop until they craft a resolution that Omar herself can support.
Tennis Legend Martina Navratilova
The coup de grâce of this trilogy is what happened to woman’s tennis legend Martina Navratilova. Here is a gay white woman who, by skill, grit and determination dominated the woman’s tennis world for many years and was a vocal supporter of gay rights and woman’s sports for decades, being driven to deliver an abject apology for saying that it’s unfair for biological men to compete as women.
Tennis legend Martina Navratilova apologized after she was criticized for recently saying in an oped that it would be “cheating” to allow transgender women to compete in women’s sporting events.
Navratilova wrote a column on her website weeks after the LGBTQ organization Athlete Ally announced it was severing ties with her following the comments. The nonprofit said they were also removing Navratilova as their organization’s ambassador and from their advisory board.
So, even after a life of amazing accomplishment and Progressive policy support this gay white woman was threatened with social annihilation for stating an opinion at odds with today’s Progressive talking points. I truly feel bad that this woman, who has demonstrated such courage throughout her life, was beaten into submission by the vile Intersectional Progressive mob. Obviously being gay and a woman is no defense against the totalitarians now in charge of Progressivism.
The Intersectional Progressives are clearly turning on Progressive “white women,” but why? As I have previously discussed the unavoidable fact is that it is the Intersectional Progressives who are virulently racist, sexist and anti-Semitic. And because of these beliefs they look at human beings not as individuals who happen to be of a given gender and race, but rather as creatures whose attributes are controlled by their race, gender, etc. Therefore, since a plurality of “white women” support Republicans every “white woman” becomes suspect. And, any deviation from today’s Intersectional Progressive positions is interpreted as proof positive that they are traitors to the movement.
I very much doubt that Progressive “white women” realized that this was to be their eventual situation. They heard all the happy talk about inclusiveness and understanding perhaps not realizing that behind the curtain were ugly, evil ideas.
I’m not expecting Progressive “white women” to en masse become Conservatives. However, I am seriously asking them if an ideology that creates such vile hatred is deserving of their allegiance. I’m encouraged that so many groups have pulled out of the Women’s March over these issuers. My hope is that enough Progressive women (and men) can find the courage to stand up against this terrible tide of bigotry. Perhaps then a more humane Progressivism can emerge.
