If you think Barack Obama is the first black president, you have a short memory.
In 1993, Bill Clinton was enshrined by the “left” as the first black president and the left never makes a mistake, at least one it will admit.
Nevertheless, Barack Obama has made his mark on history. He’s the first “feminist” president.
If you don’t believe me, just pick up the winter issue of Ms. Magazine which has Obama on its cover ripping off his dress shirt and tie, Superman (make that Superwoman) style, to reveal a T-shirt reading “This is what a feminist looks like.” I rest my case!
Eleanor Smeal, the former president of the National Organization of (some) Women and the publisher of Ms., broke with tradition by placing Obama – a man – on the cover. She says that “it reflects Obama’s commitment to feminist issues.”
Where does that leave a real feminist like Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, should she become president?
Palin will be more than happy to let Obama keep that title if being a feminist means the wholesale killing of the unborn, the right to step in front of every man in line or the right to a promotion you didn’t earn.
Obama feminists do all of the above. That’s why feminism leaves a bad taste in the mouths of so many real women in this country. Let Obama have that title. It’s no good to us anymore!
While Palin is a true feminist who didn’t make her mark by clinging to a philandering husband’s coattails, the women who buy Ms. Magazine, the Obama feminists, are counterfeit.
Please note Ms. Magazine comes out quarterly. There simply aren’t enough of the NOW crowd to support a “monthly” magazine. Real women are reading magazines like Allure and Vogue because they aren’t afraid to be feminine. They also read Better Homes and Gardens and Ladies Home Journal because they are proud to be homemakers, wives and mothers. That doesn’t mean they don’t or can’t have a career, run a company or become president of the United States.
However, a real woman is willing to make sacrifices for herself and others and when those sacrifices are necessary she doesn’t whine about them. She is smart enough to know that rearing a future president can be just as important as being president because there is as much power in influence as authority.
Obama has carried so much water for the angry feminist in the NOW crowd in the first week’s of his presidency he more than earned that magazine cover!
One of his very first act as president was to overturn by executive order the Mexico City Policy enacted by Ronald Reagan that kept our tax dollars from going to groups that promote and preform abortions overseas. Obama cynically presented this move as something he did to promote women’s health and family planning. There is no shortage of legitimate organizations that do this kind of work. What Obama did was take money away from these groups in order to give it to population control groups like International Planned Parenthood which has been linked to China’s brutal one-child policy.
In another big sop to the radical feminists, the first bills he signed into law involved something Obama and the liberals in Congress named the Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act. For the record, there is a big difference between equal pay, which has been the law of the land for more than 30 years, and “fair” pay which depends on someone’s definition of fairness.
These bills, effectively overturned a Supreme Court decision involving feminist heroin Lilly Ledbetter who filed a workplace discrimination case against Goodyear Tire & Rubber 19 years after the fact. While in retirement, Ms. Ledbetter suddenly discovered that this company paid her less than some of her male co-workers. One reason for her lower pay was poor job evaluations from serval supervisors so she waited until they were dead and the records had been destroyed to file her claim. These bills eliminate the statute of limitations on discrimination claims so no employer will ever be safe.
Forget “Joe the Plumber,” the feminists have “Lilly the Plunderer!” The bills signed by Obama will be hammers over the heads of small business owners for the rest of their natural lives and, for the record, females now head about a third of these firms.
It’s time for the real women of America to unite. Place one hand on your pocketbook and the other hand on your nose. We must hold both tightly for the next four years in order to survive the first feminist president!
