The progressives think they are enlightened and march relentlessly toward their idea of a Utopian world, where all people are treated equal, except for those they disagree with, like knuckle dragging conservatives (Fife), stay at home Moms, climate change deniers, Sarah Palin, military personnel, anti-abortionists, religious people etc. The list of the unequal is based on anyone who DARES to have a different vision of Utopia.
Let's look at which female Ministers the opposition have attacked since 2006 when the Conservatives won power.
Now, correct me is I'm wrong, but first up was Rona Ambrose, they hounded her endlessly, even yapping about her hair, until Baird took over the environment portfolio, they then stopped the attack, even though he was saying the same things.
Next up was Bev Oda, they attacked her because of a mythical cut to the SOWS, then when they replaced her with Josee Verner, the attacks continued until she was moved into a different portfolio. So far the progressives have tried to tangle with Helene Guergis, but no luck there, she doesn't take any lefty garbage. James Moore has now taken over the portfolio of Heritage, and the progressives, especially the feminist Bloc members, have very politely been put in their place.
Now we have the progressives attacking Lisa Raitt for something she had no control over, a bad communications assistant who couldn't keep secret documents secret, nor private audio tapes out of media hands. They have brought Leona Aglukkaq into this mess, but they have to be very careful because not only is she a woman, but she is also aboriginal. So, they made it appear that Lisa had attacked her, when is reality, she had called her competent! They even made fun of Diane Finley because she had to wear sunglasses for an eye condition. Very progressive, not.
I'm beginning to think that it's not sexy, it's sexist.
What female Minister haven't the progressives attacked? Gail Shea come on down!!! I suspect you are next! Funny they won't attack Diane Ablonczy..... scared??
Progressives do not like strong, independent Conservative women, witness what they did, and are still doing to Sarah Palin. What is it about strong independent women that progressives hate? Are feminists so insecure that they fear a woman who can have a career and a family? Do they have to turn every male into a metro-sexual, just like them before they are happy?
Progressives want everyone to join them in their ideal Utopia, where men and women are not just equal, they are indistinguishable from each other. Where everyone runs around fed and happy without having to work for it. Where home ownership, and a big honking TV for everyone, is a right.
Where being green means that you hop on carbon spewing planes to Bali and cry about the drowning polar bears. Where a bird killing wind turbine that takes up huge tracks of agricultural land is okay but an oil rig that kills nothing is bad.
They are blinded by their ideology, and if attacking Conservative female Ministers gains them one convert to their way of thinking, they will do it without so much as a blink. Don't you DARE call them sexist though, progressives can't be sexist, only us white, knuckle dragging, redneck, religious, gun loving nuts suffer from sexism, racism, and various other afflictions.
The opposition has attacked every Conservative female Minister, but this time they had massive help from the MSM, how progressive. Funny how IRuby was protected by the MSM, and by the way, where are all the interviews with the fired assistant.....crickets.
It's not sexy, it's sexist!
