African-American: "Palin is Feminist"
Two remarkable women, Gov. Sarah Palin and Tanya Crews, author of the following piece and head of the Northeast PA section of The Coalition for a Conservative Majority
This past Tuesday, Sarah Palin made the most explicitly feminist political speech by ANYONE running for national office in the last 20 years. She said,"Women of my generation were allowed finally to make more of our own choices with education, with career, and I have never forgotten that we owe that opportunity to women, to feminists who came before us."
Palin added. "The belief in equal opportunity is not just the cause of feminists, it's the creed of our country — equal opportunity."
Many people are trying to marginalize this lady, and discredit her accomplishments. She has worked harder than Obama & Biden combined. She has more executive experience, as well as a a marked record of achievement and increased responsibility.
When was the last time you heard a MAN having a ethics violation for having his staff or security detail [suspend] women for him? When was the last time you heard about how much a man spent on his apparel?
Why don't we talk about the abuse of power and the subversive tactic to rid us of our Free Speech...and One person One Vote? Or are we to accept the thug politics and stomp all over the Constitution?
And what happened to that press complaint "We don't have access?" She is the MOST accessible candidate.
Electing Obama will set the progress of African Americans back 20 years. Women further. Remember when they first implemented affirmative action, and unqualified people were getting hired?This past week, I sat on a panel for [Anderson Cooper's] AC360. I thought my positions and arguments were valid and open for debate.
The attacks I have received, had NOTHING to do with what I said, -- But how I looked, or suggested that I was a slave of some sort...HUH? What? Let's talk about the issues.
One thing that needs to resonate among women is that in 2008 with 52% [of the vote], women decide. I ask each of you reach into your soul and open yous mind. There are 16.5% women who are still undecided, so help them decide McCain-Palin.
The "Iron Jawed Angels" of the past ask no less.
