On Many Fronts, Democratic 'Feminists' Have Revealed Their True Colors in 2020

If there’s anything that was reaffirmed during the confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett besides the fact that she’ll make a darned good SCOTUS Justice, it’s that the “feminists” in the Democratic party are frauds through and through.

Between the ridiculous allegations about a religious group ACB has ties to being the inspiration behind “Handmaid’s Tale”, and hypocritical and sexist questions about her wardrobe and her family, so-called “feminists” on the left have once again proven that they are only about supporting women who agree with their radical views and/or who otherwise don’t interrupt feminist goals in any way.

Their attacks on Judge Barrett have not been the only instance of Democratic party “feminists” showing their true colors in 2020.

For instance, in April, liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus said the quiet part out loud about Democrats and their “Believe All Women” mantra after former Joe Biden Senate staffer Tara Reade accused him in March of raping her in 1993.

In a column she wrote at the time, Marcus confirmed her skepticism of women’s claims of sexual harassment and/or assault depends on the party affiliation of the person accused:

I have always tried to argue in favor of fact-finding first, conviction later, whether in the court of public opinion, in the Senate confirmation process or elsewhere.

That was why I questioned “whether justice was done” in the case of former Minnesota Democratic senator Al Franken, whose precipitous resignation short-circuited a Senate Ethics Committee process that could have helped determine whether Franken’s behavior merited the equivalent of a political death sentence. That was why I argued during the Kavanaugh confirmation for a serious Senate and FBI investigation, not the limited sham that was designed less to unearth the truth than to secure the necessary 50 votes to get him confirmed.

Another example around that same timeframe was the number of “feminist” icons and professors who went on record as claiming they believed Tara Reade’s allegations against Biden — but were going to vote for him, anyway.

Like attorney and retired philosophy/women’s studies professor Linda Hirshman, who told fellow feminists to “suck it up and make the utilitarian bargain.”

“Compared with the good Mr. Biden can do, the cost of dismissing Tara Reade — and, worse, weakening the voices of future survivors — is worth it,” Hirshman stated.

Blue-check feminist Kate Gardiner tweeted that she agreed with Hirshman. “This is my sentiment as well – Biden has to win,” Gardiner said in a now-deleted tweet.

In a letter to the editor at the New York Times, retired Dallas attorney and rape survivor Karen Wilson claimed she “loathed hypocrisy” but that it was paramount to get Trump out of office, even if it meant voting for a deeply flawed candidate like Biden who might have violently forced himself on an unwilling woman.

“We cannot survive as a democratic society with Mr. Trump in office for four more years,” Wilson said. “The need to get [Trump] out of office overrules every scruple we may have. I will live with my hypocrisy and believe that tens of millions of Americans will feel the same.”

Self-important liberal feminist attorney Lisa Bloom made a similar admission in May, as my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported at the time:

Perhaps worst of all was the number of female Democratic candidates for president who just months prior to Reade’s allegations were telling us to “believe all women” — until they became interested in the vice-presidential slot. Then all of a sudden they were singing a different tune, proving that what “Believe All Women” really boiled down to was “let’s believe only the women who don’t stand in the way of the Democratic agenda.”

This includes Biden’s vice presidential running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, who to my knowledge has never been asked why she said last year that she believed the women who accused Biden of inappropriate touching and hair-sniffing and then turned around and agreed to his VP offer.

In a VIP piece I wrote when all this ugly feminist hypocrisy had been exposed, I pointed out that Joe Biden was effectively destroying the “#MeToo” movement.

But thanks to the media/Democrat protection racket that both insulates Biden from criticism on these issues while going after ACB with both barrels simply because she doesn’t toe the liberal line, it’s not just the #MeToo movement that has been destroyed. The “we must elevate women!” facade feminists have put up for the last several decades has come crashing down as well.

That feminists continue to expose themselves in this manner is a good thing for America. The more women who turn away from pseudo-feminism in all its forms as a result of the hypocrisy of groups like “NARAL” and “NOW” and two-faced Democratic politicians the better.
