Why is Wendy Davis unable to get a majority of women to vote for her?
“Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.” – Charlie Chaplin
I’ve written about the “war on women” a lot, but there is just so much to be said about it. It started many years ago as a liberal meme, but picked up significant steam during the 2012 presidential election, when Republican candidate Mitt Romney uttered the phrase “binders full of women.” It was innocuous enough, but it was just the right mixture of odd, and catchy that the left went all out, like Chris Christie at an all-you-can-eat buffet. Since then, it has been a featured phrase in the lefty lexicon to slam anything conservatives say that pertains to abortion, contraception, and/or any female Democratic candidate. It’s the get-out-of-jail-free card of the liberal world. You don’t believe Christian employers should be forced by the government to pay for abortion drugs? War on women! You don’t believe a woman has the right to have her child executed like a convicted murderer? War on women! You think Hillary Clinton’s record as Secretary of State is less than stellar? War on women! Given all of that, can I say just how abundantly joyful it is to watch a campaign entirely built on the “war on women” meme fall apart so catastrophically? Of course I mean Wendy Davis.
Wendy Davis was the Queen of the liberal world when she filibustered a bill which would outlaw late-term abortions in Texas. Hang on, it’s probably misogynistic to use the word “Queen” to describe her. Wendy Davis was the (insert non-gendered descriptive noun here) of the liberal world. She catapulted to fame while wearing her pink sneakers. She was the coolest of cool, a role model for women everywhere—fighting for women’s reproductive rights! Now she’s down by 12 points…with female voters!
The war on women meme is false, as we all know. The way you can tell if the left really believes what they’re saying is to apply their philosophy to conservatives, and see if it sticks. A consistent philosophy would apply broadly, meaning that the war on women would be seen as being waged against conservative women as well as liberal ones–yet that is not the case. Everyone knows that you can call Sarah Palin a “c**t,” as Cher did, and no one on the left will bat an eye. Say that of Michelle Obama, and the national media would be whipped into a foaming frenzy, demanding an apology, or more likely, a public execution of the perpetrator. It’s as simple as that. The left doesn’t believe in the war on women, it’s just an easy excuse, a phrase to be used when they cannot defend their disgusting belief system.
Wendy Davis is the poster-child for a comically failed campaign. Everything from the lies regarding her life story, to her campaign ad featuring an empty wheelchair (her opponent is a paraplegic), to her trotting out people in wheelchairs to cover up her gross ad, everything about the Davis campaign has been a slow-motion car wreck–and I love every second of it. I’m so sick of liberals crying “war on women!” at every opportunity to get out of talking about what’s really going on in abortion mills across the country. Infants are being torn apart, decapitated, burned, and smashed so that women don’t have to be inconvenienced by a child, and the left stands for it as if it were a thing of beauty. They claim that they’re not “pro-abortion,” but “pro-choice.” That’s like saying “I’m not pro-ISIS decapitating hostages, I’m pro-their right to choose.”
Despite using the magical war on women to her best advantage, Wendy Davis has failed, and I could not be happier, because she is a disgusting women. For all the infants who have been decapitated for the benefit of their irresponsible mothers, and fathers, I say good riddance to Wendy Davis, and goodbye to the “war on women.”
