"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Is Threatening Rape and New Way to Protest Union Busting?

Please tell me this is a photoshop fake....

    The only difference between the pro-union, pro-Obamacrat thug holding this vile sign and the Egyptian islamofascist thugs who committed the heinous attack on foreign correspondent Lara Logan is one of degree. The world is in the throes of a clash of cultures: misogynistic, mindless 7th century barbarian brute force on one side and 21st century civilized society and reason on the other. Despite the fact that America is presumably civilized and reasonable, there are still, sadly, too many whose attitudes toward women are those of the misogynistic, mindless 7th century barbarian. This vile sign speaks volumes about how miserably many teachers, purportedly protesting "for the kids," are failing, both as educators of future adults and as human beings. One can only hope that the sick male holding this sign is not a teacher or anyone allowed anywhere near children. We all know the pro-union protests are entirely self-serving. The WI teachers are paid better than any across the nation, and currently pay little or nothing toward their own benefits. The budget request that they pay a small portion for their pension and health care is extremely modest. Also, contrary to deliberate union disinformation, the bill does not end collective bargaining, but rather limits it to matters of wages. Anyone who hasn't read the budget bill summary, should go to the WI government site and read it. The budget bill is meant to get the state out of the business of collecting dues for the union via paycheck deductions, and would place the dues-collecting responsibility back on the union where it belongs, thus allowing individual teachers to decide whether or not they wish to join. Why should teachers be forced to join the union in order to have a job, as is currently the situation? This is why the union thugs are being bused into WI by Obama's Organizing for America (mutation of MoveOn.Org) using their infamous intimidation tactics, which we all witnessed during the '08 caucuses and primary. Union leaders refuse to give up their political power and the American taxpayer dollars that support their corrupt, symbiotic relationship with the Obamacrats, to whom they deliver millions of votes. That's why they're telling all who disagree with them to "sit down and shut up."

  2. And sadly.... if a women is raped in WI... it will be "her own fault" for being there. Just like Lara Logan's rape is apparently her own fault, in the eyes of American pundits:

    This is known to be a part of the clinical "cycle of abuse/battering/assault" -- blaming the victim for the abuser's violent acts, as in, "she provoked it." It is the ultimate cop out of the male-centric patriarchy (and the Obamacrats/islamofascist thugs), whose proponents--rather than accepting individual responsibility for their actions--must ultimately resort to blaming someone else (scapegoating) for their own obvious, horrific crimes, because their barbaric, corruption-induced emotional blindness and psychoses prod them to try to maintain a fragile grasp on their supposed "male sexual prowess" in order to uphold their supposed "superiority." So, essentially, men continue to brutalize women so that they can save their fragile male egos, and the patriarchy's apologists (male-centric media, et al) continue to condone it. Personally, I'm sick "to the back teeth" with all this. It is only women who have a hope of saving this savage, twisted world, by refusing to "sit down and shut up" and continuing to speak the truth wherever it leads.

  4. I thought this photo was appalling. Never mind that these people continue to use such offensive, homophobic language, but the blatant misogyny is horrifying...

  5. I know Rev. Amy. It has me just sick, to be honest. The folks I have always considered my allies in the fight for human rights have done a 180. (Or maybe they were always this way and I didn't notice?)
