Republicans War on Women is part of a Larger Whole

"I’m sorry, but to show the world how ruthless these people are, women needed to be the first ones shot." - Richard Mack, former Arizona Sheriff and Founder of the Domestic Terrorist Organization the Consititutional Sheriffs, bravely putting is women and children out in front of himself during the Nevada Right-Wing Uprising.
The All-Out Assault on Women by Right-Wingers is part of a larger whole; the Conservative effort to abolish a Government by the People and for the People. Republicans and Conservatives want a Government for the Plutocracy. As such, Republicans have declared War on 99% of Americans with the goal of creating a Neo-Feudal Nation, where the Right-Wing Values of Oppression, Intolerance and Adulation of the Rich are enshrined.

Republicans are in office to impoverish the 99%, ensure further Income Inequality, and transfer Wealth and Control of this Nation to the Rich.

The last month has seen a deluge of Republican efforts at keeping women second-class citizens. The amount of despicable crud emanating from Republicans is almost too much to recount. However, here are few highlights.

Phyliss Schflay has been fighting against women for 40 years. As a living fossil, her occasional Eagle Forum op-ed is picked up by Right-Wing sites. Schflay's latest is the ridiculous assertion that women should strive to earn less in order to attract a man who earns more.
Another fact is the influence of hypergamy, which means that women typically choose a mate (husband or boyfriend) who earns more than she does. Men don’t have the same preference for a higher-earning mate. 
While women prefer to HAVE a higher-earning partner, men generally prefer to BE the higher-earning partner in a relationship. This simple but profound difference between the sexes has powerful consequences for the so-called pay gap. 
Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate. 
Obviously, I’m not saying women won’t date or marry a lower-earning men, only that they probably prefer not to. If a higher-earning man is not available, many women are more likely not to marry at all. 
The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.
This is just stupid as well as being sexist. Perhaps, Phyliss enjoyed not working a regular job because the family she married into had money and she could focus on dominating Ronald Reagan, crushing the Women's Libber Movement and defeating the ERA but, my grandfather always told me it was just as easy to love a woman with money as it was a woman without.

Of course, an ideological generation of women have sprung up to plague us, cut from Schflay's Bosom.

Over at Faux Business, blondish Spokesmodel Melissa Francis told Alan Colmes and the other blondish Faux Spokesmodel that while the gender-wage gap doesn't exist, the gender wage gap was the reason more women kept their jobs during the Republican Recession,
I would also point out that men lost jobs at two and a half times the rate as women in this last recession. I know plenty of families where the man is now out of work and the woman is the one who's working full time. Probably because she makes a little less, so she was able to keep her job.
In the United States Senate, every Republican voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act defeating it's passage. But, one might note the Republicans are a minority in the US Senate holding just 44 seats out of 100. Fortunately, those 44 Republican Bureaucrats have long ago turned the US Congress into the Polish Sejm of the 18th century, where the objections of merely one Republican is enough to derail the legislative process.

Of course, debate is the natural enemy of Republicans because it forces them to actually say what they believe and what Republicans believe is American Workers should be earning less money with fewer benefits while receiving no assistance from Government.

However, should a Republican be forced to verbalize their odious principles it is especially, pleasing to Republicans and their Masters are when they trot out one of their Right-Wing Stepford Women to mouth their ideology.

CongressMAN Marsha Blackburn (caught by Steve M. over at No More Mister Nice Blog), took umbrage... UMBRAGE! I Say! with the idea of the Republican War on Women,
"I find this war on women rhetoric almost silly,” Congressman Blackburn insisted. “It is Republicans that have led the fight for women’s equality. Go back through history! And look at who was the first woman to vote, to get elected to office, to go to Congress, four out of five governors. We're all for Equal Pay!" 
Marsha, Marsha, Marsha then blamed Obamacare! Blackburn's silliness is part and parcel of the Republican belief in sympathetic magic, Saying So makes it So.

One of the ways Republicans claim to support women is by trotting out token women like Marsha Blackburn.

American Women are expected to see the "success" of a Blackburn, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann or any right-wing woman and experience vicarious feelings of accomplishment through these vessels.

Afterwards, the woman should subsume her desire to succeed and support the flabby, overweight, white male Republican Party

But, speaking of women Republican Governors and getting back to the Larger Whole, Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma signed a bill prohibiting cities in Oklahoma from raising the minimum wage or establishing paid vacation days or sick days. 

This shows, of course, how Republican love using the awesome power of government to crush women and the working class and puts paid to the lie that Republicans believe in small government or local control. 

Equal Pay for Equal Work should be a goal of everyone in this Nation, a Nation of supposed Equality under Law. But, the 1% don't want Equality they want Total Domination.

Keeping women's pay and benefits down is just a part of the larger whole. The Owners of the Republican Party have tasked them to crush the Working Class and eliminate the Middle Class. Thus every Republican will always vote against anything which aids women or the 99%.

The Capitalist Job Creators see the American Worker as an unnecessary expense. With the aid of Neoliberal Economics, Job Creators have off-shored jobs, insourced illegal immigrants, stolen pensions, lowered wages, slashed benefits, and rigged the tax code to undermine and crush Workers.

All of the blather is just window dressing, Job Creators would love to create jobs in the United States. It's just they want to create jobs which pay you a nickel an hour with no lunch or bathroom breaks and zero benefits. Those are the kind of jobs the Republicans can get behind.

Until then the Republican Assault on Women as a branch of the Republican War on 99% of America shall continue.

The party who champions abortion; the party who champions Margaret Sanger; the party who supports Planned Parenthood is the party who hates women.

More than 20,000,000 (more than twenty million) babies killed each year. That is the real war on women.

So why don't women vote for Republicans? Why did President Obama win womem's votes 56-44 in 2012 and 57-43 in 2008?

Why haven't Republicans won the majority of Women's votes 25 years?

Is it as Neil Boortz laments;

What does it say about women voters that they're so easily fooled and manipulated by the Democrats asinine "war on women" rhetoric?

Marketing maybe; I don't know. The same phenomenon is observed when witnessing minorities overwhelmingly voting for the same Democratic party the KKK was born of.

Exactly, conservatives keep running on women and blacks are stupid.

And they can't seem to understand why running on 'Stop being stupid and vote for Republicans' isn't working.

Mainly, I believe women and minorities vote overwhelmingly Democratic because they see the ACTIONS the Right takes despite their BS WORDS.
