Kaci Hickox: Ebola’s Sandra Fluke

Originally posted at American Thinkerindex

Two perfect examples of bleeding hearts choosing a cause and then demanding that the cost be exacted from the hides of others are two liberal women who have made national news despite caring little about the expense of their personal wants.

The first woman is Sandra Kay Fluke (pronounced fluck), an attorney and women’s rights activist who, in her last year of Georgetown University Law School, used polycystic ovary disease as a rationale to denounce the Catholic university’s refusal to comply with an Obamacare insurance mandate to provide women with free contraception and abortion.

Fluke was unabashed in her demands, citing $3,000 in birth control expenses as one of the reasons Americans should be forced to finance contraception for women who feel others should fund their sex lives.

After well-deserved criticism and much controversy, with the help of Democrat handlers, Sandra became the left’s spokeswoman in the fabricated “war on women” and was elevated to the status of patron saint of polycystic ovary disease awareness.  The epitome of liberal activism, Ms. Fluke made it quite clear that her desire for free birth control took precedence over the religious convictions of those she felt should be forced to foot the bill for her contraceptives.

In other words, Sandra Fluke was unwilling to sacrifice her own money, yet she had zero compunction about citing polycystic ovary disease as a way to force others to absorb the cost of her birth control pills.

In order to raise awareness about the “war on women,” Sandra was more than willing to  wage all-out war on religious liberty and oppress anyone who disagreed with her personal views.

Now we have Sierra Leone Ebola nurse Kaci Hickox.  While defying quarantine requirements instituted by the state of New Jersey and the CDC in her home state of Maine, Kaci, who seems unconcerned about the welfare of her friends and neighbors, was concerned enough about herself to don a bicycle helmet while out cycling with boyfriend Ted Wilbur.

In West Africa, Kaci was concerned about West Africans, but back home in America, Kaci is more concerned about Kaci than the safety of those she could expose to a fatal hemorrhagic fever.  So, unlike Sandra Fluke, Kaci Hickox’s message does not involve the “war on women”; rather, it focuses on the futility of a mandatory “self-quarantine” even though it is now being reported that her roommate in Africa is infected with Ebola.

Kaci Hickox cared so much for West African Ebola patients that she was willing to risk her life.  However, once home in the U.S., when asked to inconvenience herself for 21 days by participating in a cautionary self-quarantine, self-sacrificial Kaci refuses to comply.

Leaving aside arguments about the dangers and ramifications of asking a free people to submit to government-mandated quarantines, or whether the Ebola crisis is fabricated or not, there is a huge measure of hypocrisy that needs to be pointed out on Kaci Hickox’s part that is typical liberal modus operandi.

Liberals like Kaci love for government oversight to be enforced on everyone else, but when government tries to dictate something they would rather not do, like pay for their own contraceptives or stay indoors for 21 days, liberals cry the loudest.

Then, in a stunning example of stupidity trumping science, in a statement that encapsulates the negative impact that moral relevancy has had on America, Kaci’s boyfriend Ted said, “We don’t believe that we can get anyone sick.”  That’s because in Obama’s America, a regime Kaci and Ted both proudly identify with, declaring one’s belief places that belief on par with the truth, even if it’s false.

That’s why just like Sandra Fluke, Kaci Hickox may portray herself as altruistic, but as it turns out, her type of progressive philanthropy comes with a price.  Because when Kaci’s hypocrisy is factored into the equation, just like Sandra Fluke, she embodies the high cost of liberal double standards.

Female Israeli Soldiers and American Feminists

Almost daily, Americans are subjected to the rantings of the likes of Democrat darling Sandra Fluke, Democrat politician Wendy Davis, and crazier-than-a-hoot-owl Nancy Pelosi.  Shamelessly, Sandra Fluke insists that the government finance her $3,000-a-year birth control habit.  In Texas, Wendy Davis made a name for herself by standing for 11 hours on the crushed corpses of aborted babies filibustering Senate Bill 5’s abortion regulations.

And then there’s Mrs. Nancy “I’m Significant and You’re Not” Pelosi, who rationalizes promoting a crisis on the border with references to Baby Jesus and Moses, and who then, when challenged with the truth about her party’s culpability in that border crisis, manifests like Regan MacNeil in The Exorcist, insulting colleagues by calling them “insignificant.”

Wait!  Didn’t Arizona Governor Jan Brewer justifiably scold Barack Obama on the tarmac of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport for undermining Arizona’s right to defend its own border?  And didn’t appalled liberals call Brewer’s finger-wagging disrespectful and demeaning?

Yet Nana Nancy can storm across the floor of the House of Representatives, blatantly disregarding House protocol, to wag her finger at Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Tom Marino, and the ones who squawked over Brewer admonishing little Barry didn’t bat an eye at Pelosi’s inappropriate outburst.

Nonetheless, those are some of the faces (Nancy included) of American feminism – faces that also include Gloria “I had an abortion” Steinem and emotionally battered wife Hillary “so what if my husband is a lying, cheating adulterer” Clinton. 

Then there’s lesbian pundit Rachael Maddow and tampon-earring-wearing “Sister Citizen” Melissa Harris-Perry, as well as rock stars like Madonna, feminist icon/writer/actress/director/producer Lena Dunham, and comedians like Sarah Silverman and Kathy Griffith, all of whom have gotten rich mocking God and exploiting vulgarity to garner attention.

The list of some of the things that liberal women apparently feel best articulate American feminism includes begging for free contraceptives and, if those contraceptives fail, killing the living result of government-funded promiscuousness; shirking responsibility; exhibiting an in-your-face sense of entitlement; shunning femininity; tolerating adultery; and above all, thinking that womankind is somehow benefited by supporting a president whose many crimes against women include paying his female staff a salary significantly less than his male staff.

Meanwhile, over in Israel, handsome, intelligent, patriotic young women serve in the Israel Defense Force (IDF) fighting Islamic terrorism alongside male soldiers, struggling to defend the land given them by God and to ensure the safety of the Jewish people.

Unlike Nancy Pelosi, who encourages MS-13 gang members and potential terrorists to invade America, IDF intelligence commander Shelly Marhevkaidentifies and impedes terrorist invasions on Israel’s southern border.

While Sandra Fluke snivels to the president over the telephone because a radio talk show host called her a name and exhorts women’s rights by burning through $3,000 worth of contraceptives, in Israel, female explosives experts, platoon commanders, combat soldiers, and operators in the Iron Dome missile defense system risk their lives in a war zone.

In the United States, feminism has successfully reduced the fairer sex to hapless victims of a nonexistent “war on women.”  Liberal women who demand equality with men don’t recognize the dichotomy they create by pleading with Big Brother for assistance.  Where is the logic in demanding the right to destroy an unborn child and then soliciting a basically patriarchal government for the funding to do so?

On the other hand, female Israeli conscripts literally fight – not for free contraception, but for the survival of the Jewish state.  In Israel, women are focused on the genocidal jihad that wants all Jews, be they man, woman, or child, eradicated from the face of the earth. 

There isn’t time for women like IDF spokesperson Libby Weiss to screech about needing free birth control pills, especially when she’s locating andexcavating tunnels Hamas uses to enter and terrorize residential Jewish neighborhoods.

While American women fight for the right to destroy the unborn, the women of Israel band together in the fight to destroy Islamic radicalism.  While Nancy Pelosi bemoans “women dying on the floor” for lack of abortion funding, in Israel, women battle to defeat suicide bombers and missile launchers massacring innocent children on school buses.

The women of the IDF are focused on preserving the Holy Land, not advancing gender equity – the latter of which, by the way, is automatically accomplished when women act powerful and fearless instead of persecuted and ungrateful.

It’s equality earned versus equality exacted.

When it comes to feminism, which is defined as “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes,” petulant and whiny American women could learn a thing or two from feminine yet fierce Israeli soldiers. 

LotsoFluck if Sandra Fluke Goes to Congress

imagesOriginally posted at American Thinker

After 40 years and 20 terms, 74-year-old “ferocious liberal” and unique-looking individual Henry Waxman, one of the key architects of the disastrous Obamacare healthcare reform bill, announced he’s packing it in because of Tea Party extremism.

Speaking of packing it in and extremism, one name being bandied about as a possible replacement for Henry the Waxman’s congressional seat is none other than Sandra Fluke (appropriately pronounced F-Luck).

Announcing his retirement, Henry had this to say:

After 40 years in Congress, it’s time for someone else to have the chance to make his or her mark, ideally someone who is young enough to make the long-term commitment that’s required for real legislative success.

Could that “young enough…someone else” actually be Sandra Fluke? Because if über liberalism is the primary criteria, Fluke certainly qualifies to occupy Henry Waxman’s vacated seat.

Speaking to a California radio station, Sandra, who once placed birth control on an equal par with blood transfusions and represented Emerge California’s class of 2014, a training program for Democratic women who want to run for public office, sounded surprised by the suggestion that she should seek public office, saying this:

I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate. A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.

As luck would have it, Sandra is engaged to Adam Mutterperl, son of a big-time Democrat Party donor. So it would be fair to assume that future Dad-in-Law was “the folks I respect very deeply… [who’ve]…encouraged me to run,” that wannabe congressperson Sandra referred to in her radio interview.

Ms. Fluke made a name for herself with Democrats by demanding free contraceptives, and likes to come off as poised and soft-spoken.  But don’t be fooled by the pearl earrings; Sandy’s just as rabid a left-wing partisan tool as Henry Waxman.

Sandra Fluke is the women’s rights activist who brought national attention to a female sex hormone scourge called polycystic ovary disease, inspiring Rush Limbaugh to provide a colloquial description of what a girl publicly admitting that she uses $3,000 worth of birth control a year is actually admitting she is.

As a result of the outrage that followed, Sandra got a personal telephone call from Barack Obama.  The president took the time to commend her for her bravery and implied that having a daughter willing to reveal her prolific sexual activity in front of the whole country while soliciting free contraceptives, is enough to make any parent proud.

After her House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee appearance, rising star Sandra moved up to speak at the Democratic Convention, and after introducing Barack Obama at a campaign rally in Denver took to the road on behalf of the president’s re-election, which, in liberal circles, is all that was necessary to prepare Sandy to take a seat in the House of Representatives.

However, despite possessing the political ambition, Henry Waxman-level liberal endorsements, and Barack Obama’s soon-to-come blessing, serious concerns remain.  If Sandra Fluke’s claim to fame is that she can’t come up with a budget that includes a year’s worth of birth control, what is it exactly that qualifies her to manage the fiscal responsibilities of the nation as a Member of Congress?

UPDATE:  Sandra changed her mind forgoes her bid for Congress and  is running for state senate.

Obama says ‘Fluke You’ to Religious Liberty and Women with Cancer

BarryO-300x157Originally posted at The Blacksphere

America has discovered that Barack Obama is unrelenting in his crusade to force Catholic and other Christian institutions to compromise their religious convictions.

But the President is, for the most part, clueless when it comes to the rest of his signature legislation.

For months prior to the 2012 election, in order to portray himself as the savior of women’s rights America was hammered with liberal “war on women” twaddle from both the president and his disciples.

Now, one year following the premiere of the “war on women” spectacle, the country is finding out that Barack the Savior is only versed in the portion of the 10,000 page ObamaCare bill that concerns itself with providing free abortifacients, dilation and curettage and the like.

In February of 2012, Georgetown University Law School student Sandra Fluke (pronounced Fluck) became a household name after whining to Congress for free contraceptives.

The focus of the debate at the time centered on mean old Catholic institutions refusing to provide employees and students with health insurance that covered birth control, sterilization and abortion. At that time, Sandra, who chose to obtain a law degree from a Jesuit university, took her complaints about her school’s refusal to submit to the Obamacare mandate to Congressional Democrats. And, for good measure, added an anecdote about a phantom woman with a $3,000-a-year bill for protective panoply.

With nary a moment’s hesitation, Barack Obama inserted himself into the thick of the controversy, even going so far as to dial up Sandy to thank her for her valor, console her after her true professional aspirations were outted by Rush Limbaugh, and to compliment her Dad and Mom for raising such an outstanding liberal activist.

President Obama used Sandra’s testimony as a backdrop to future campaign caveats that pointed out that although religious liberty is “critical,” if Constitutional freedom denies coverage to non-Catholic employees, it’s “not fair.”

So the Catholic Church versus the free contraceptive debate undeniably verified that, at least for the guy who swore to uphold the Constitution, fairness always trumps Constitutional fidelity.

Since Sandra Fluke shared the story about her friend with polycystic ovary disease and beseeched the nation to force the Vatican to approve insurance that covers free birth control, it has been officially confirmed that the president, who defended both Fluke and the Affordable Care Act, cares little about the details contained within the law that bears his name.

Along with that came another, more troublesome revelation:  Barack Obama the conniver would gladly exploit the issue of free birth control as justification to shit-can the Constitution if doing so ensured that Catholic institutions would be forced to genuflect before the altar of socialist depravity.

Moreover, despite his ongoing campaign to “win” the war against America’s women, we found out that if you happen to be female, have advanced-stage cancer, and are in the midst of chemotherapy, if your insurance company cancels your policy Barack Obama doesn’t give a rat’s ass if you live or die.

That’s why it’s now clear that our morally-challenged president is more concerned with dressing down Christianity, by forcing them to accommodate hundreds of promiscuous coeds, than he is with helping thousands of suddenly-uninsured cancer patients.

 

Obama, the Sultan of Sob Stories

Slide1Originally posted at American Thinker

In order to advance his agenda, Barack Obama has become the sultan of sob stories.  For every unpopular policy he endeavors to impose, the president has busloads of individuals to fit every occasion.

Take for instance the president’s enthusiastic desire to curtail Second Amendment rights.  To address that issue, he has mentioned and put on display shooting survivor and former Arizona congresswoman Gabby “deserves a vote” Giffords many times.

Mr. Obama has spoken at prayer memorials, exploited the grieving families of the Sandy Hook victims, and given seats of honor at the State of the Union speech to slain Chicago teen Hadiya Pendleton’s parents, Cleo and Nat.  The president has read letters from terrified albeit amazingly articulate schoolchildren convinced that without drastic gun control measures they’ll be gunned down in school, and even went so far as to assume symbolic parenthood of shooting victim Trayvon Martin.

For immigration reform, we now know all about DREAM actors, those fresh-faced illegal immigrants that any American would be proud to see marry their son or daughter. In addition, we’ve heard stories about innocent Latinos just trying to buy ice cream cones for their children being harassed for their “papers” by mean xenophobes in Arizona.

On the subject of government-funded contraception, after she gave a lengthy breakdown of her yearly birth control expenses and shared harrowing stories of polycystic ovary syndrome, America was subjected to President Obama’s publicity stunt/conference call to comfort the maligned Sandra Fluke.

On healthcare reform, Barack Obama would be wise to make short work of the “life-or-death stuff” by hosting a Jerry Lewis-style telethon.  Then, in hopes of convincing America to submit to further government control out of pure guilt, Obama can sponsor a procession of heartrending tales ranging from multiple sclerosis to brain tumors.

Barack Obama abusing stories of hardship has reduced the leader of the free world into a kind of carnival barker whose masterful art of psychological manipulation involves showcasing the maladies of suffering people as if they were sideshow freaks.

Now, as the government shutdown drags on, the White House is falling back on that old standby: marshaling groups of people adversely affected by it.

Posted on the White House blog, acting Director of Digital Strategy for the Obama administration, Nathaniel Lubin, asked the following question: “How has the government shutdown affected you?  Share your story.”

But veterans in wheelchairs attempting to access the WWII Memorial only to find gates reinforced with chicken wire need not bother to register a complaint.

For everyone else, although the White House website is closed for business “Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government,” the White House blog will remain open in order to trawl for sob stories to be used as an emotional billy club to beat the Republican leadership into political submission.

By searching far and wide, it’s likely Democrats will be able to dig up stories of bawling children, desperate mothers, and demoralized federal workers cracking open their kid’s piggy banks to feed the family.  If that doesn’t work, there’s always people infected by rotaviruses because the CDC has furloughed researchers, as well as all manner of horrific examples of how a government shutdown has affected those that Barack Obama – the one who orchestrated it – is purposely attempting to make miserable.

And so, as the government shutdown drags on, and especially if John Boehner and Co. continue to listen to the wishes of the American people, expect to see catastrophic calamities as a backdrop for every statement Barack Obama makes in his typical efforts to blame a situation he caused on the Republicans.

Michelle Obama, ‘Queen of Park Avenue’

310x229_priscilla_queen_of_desertOriginally posted at ClashDaily

At the end of May, right before Michelle Obama will likely head off to Ireland for her pre-vacation vacation, the Democratic National Committee is holding the LGBT Leadership Council 2013 gala on Park Avenue in New York City. Bravo TV network executive, the man behind The Real Housewives, former go-go dancer, and author of the memoir Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture, Andy Cohen, will host the fundraiser.

Not only will Andy be among a few thousand of his closest friends, he’ll also get to introduce the realest housewife of Washington DC and headliner for the event, part-time “single mom” and full-time first lady, Michelle Obama.

In order to reach out to the full spectrum of all the colors of the rainbow that will be represented at the affair, Michelle should either wrap herself in the gay pride flag or pull out a Priscilla, Queen of the Desert outfit she probably has stashed somewhere in the closet, oops … in her section of her husband’s wardrobe. At least with the boys, Michelle coming to the celebration dressed as the “Queen of Park Avenue” would be a real hit.

Many of the New York Observer’s “NYC’s Top 50 Power Gays” will likely attend. The glittering evening is bound to feature one-percenters from every corner of the LGBT community: artists, playwrights, journalists, stage and screen actors, politicians, lawyers, and famous fashion designers.

Therefore, Michelle should just forget the Priscilla outfit and wear something by “power gay” designers Michael Kors or Marc Jacobs.

But regardless of what Mrs. Obama decides to wear, make no mistake about it – this is a big-ticket event. Very few, if any, LGBT couples and singles from the 99 percent will be seated in the ballroom at 583 Park Avenue.

For $32,000 a “power gay” couple will be recognized as LGBT co-chairs; they will sit in the preferred viewing section and get to have a picture taken with Michelle Obama which, to be fair, unless she has something she’d like to share, is really a LGBTH (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Heterosexual) photo.

For $15,000 per couple, you get the same package except you’re downgraded from a co-chair to a host. For $7,500 per couple, there is no distinguished acknowledgment, just a cheesy photo with the headliner.

A silly question: if a transgender is in the process of transitioning from one gender to the other, is she/he or he/she considered a couple? That’s important, because for a measly $2,500 you get one dinner seat (Sorry – no sharing) in the preferred viewing section, no photo with Michelle, and zero recognition. The same is true for $1,250, which puts you in the general viewing section and basically just buys you dinner.

As if the evening could get any more spectacular, appearing with the first lady will be special guest and newcomer to the coming-out scene, NBA basketball star Jason Collins. Jason was formerly known only for dribbling, albeit poorly, on the hardwood; now he’s moved up and become a gay pioneer in the professional sports community. Adding to those credentials is the prestige that comes with joining the likes of Sandra Fluke, who is also the proud recipient of a personal telephone call from “couldn’t be prouder” free contraceptive/gay-pride supporter Barack Obama.

Anyway, it sure seems like those Obamas really want to mix it up. While Barack was out bestowing God’s blessing on Planned Parenthood and putting his stamp of approval on giving abortifacients to 15-year-olds, the first lady is preparing to grace the gathering of the one community on the planet that doesn’t need birth control.

Sexy Snails and Other Federally Funded Priorities

imageIn order to find a way to reopen White House tours, somebody should really be appointed the job of figuring out where to cut corners.  Clearly, the $900K that was spent on the president’s weekend golfing expedition with Tiger Woods in Florida, at the rate of $74,000 per week, could have kept the doors open to schoolchildren for the remainder of the school year.

If the feds want to squeeze another couple of months’ worth of tours out of the tight budget, maybe the National Science Foundation can rescind its $876,752 grant to the University of Iowa to study the sex lives of New Zealand mud snails.  During this administration at least, finding out “why any organism has sex,” apparently takes priority over White House tours for students. But then again, isn’t Georgetown University sexpert Sandra Fluke someone who should be able to answer that question without it costing taxpayers a million dollars?

Nonetheless, the purpose of the snail sex study is to see if it’s better for snails to “reproduce sexually or asexually.”  Seems snails do both, which could offer hope for women who desire to have children but just haven’t met that special someone just yet.

Obama’s Inner Circle and the ‘War on Women’

OB8248707540_381d294d01_oOriginally posted at American Thinker blog

The White House releases tons of pictures of Obama family dog Bo; pictures of Michelle Obama gardening and hula-hooping; there are even photos of President Obama teaching the Resolute Desk how to do double duty as an ottoman. What there aren’t a lot of photographs of are America’s top general in the “war on women,” Barack Obama, and his underrepresented high-ranking female advisers.  Why?  Because besides the president’s Senior Advisor and admitted ‘main man’ Valerie Jarrett, there simply aren’t very many women around.

So what does this say about Barack Obama and the left’s contrived “war on women?”  Well, given the fact that high-level women are a scarcity at the White House and Obama pays his female staffers about 18% less than his male staffers, the definition of the “war on women” obviously has nothing to do with political or economic equal rights.  Instead, if Sandra Fluke and her Polycystic Ovary Syndrome sisters are the chosen poster girls for female oppression, then apparently outfitting women for carefree sex is how liberals plan to win the gender conflict.

After all, didn’t Democrats haul Sandra Fluke out in front of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on women’s health and contraception to expound upon American women’s need for free birth control? That right there should have insulted liberated ladies who for years have tried to separate sex from significance.  But then again, if Obama consistently pays his female staffers $11K less than the males, it’s understandable that the president might feel that working women could be a little pressed for cash to purchase the necessary protection for after-work dalliances.

Georgetown University Law School graduate Sandra Fluke became a media star when Rush Limbaugh connected the dots for America.  Rush merely pointed out that demanding health insurance provide free birth control in order to facilitate consequence-free sex presents an opportunity for women to employ government entitlements as a means to earn extra cash.

The left was apoplectic that Limbaugh dared to suggest that Sandra Fluke may actually be what she herself had intimated she might be – so much so that the President took the time to call Sandy F. to “express his disappointment that she has been the subject of inappropriate personal attacks.”  As a parent, Obama mentioned that Sandra’s parents, Richard and Betty should be proud of their daughter’s willingness to “exercise her rights as a citizen to speak out on an issue of public policy.”

Let’s remember that when casually discussing birth control, abortion, and his own twisted sense of morality, it was the president who mentioned that Sasha and Malia should not be “punished” with a baby.  That bizarre comment coming from a father of two young girls indicates that career choices and potential income are not the first and foremost opportunities Obama anticipates will face his daughters.

Nevertheless, it was during Obama’s reelection campaign that Ms. Fluke’s dog-and-filly show took to the road.  The “democrat darling” traveled the nation representing victimized womenfolk and portrayed Republicans as Neanderthals trying to deprive the fairer sex of the necessary accoutrements for a healthy sex life. But the accolades didn’t stop there; Sandra also earned a slot as a featured speaker at the Democratic National Convention and TIME Magazine even considered Her Flukeness for Person of the Year.

Meanwhile, as Sandra was busily helping secure Obama’s reelection with the hyper-dependent Julias of the world, female employees working on Obama’s reelection campaign were earning an “average of $6,872…compared with an average of $7,235 for male employees. That is a difference of $363, or 5.3 percent.”

Then, recently, a White House Flicker photo was released of a meeting of Barack Obama’s top advisers.  The picture was void of even one female representative, so either the president’s top-level ladies were busy using those free contraceptives, or women are not welcome in the president’s innermost circle.

Couple the missing female Obama advisers with the president’s female staffers and campaign employees being paid considerably less than males and there’s a clear indication that the liberal “war on women” fiction involves something besides addressing traditional feminist issues.

Therefore, based on the lack of female representation and continued salary inequity in the Obama administration, as well as the emphasis in the “war on women” being on the “right” to a paternalistic birth control entitlement, it appears liberals believe women are reliant on men to protect their right to be ready for sex at a moment’s notice. It also explains why, on behalf of American women, liberal men like Barack Obama will keep fighting the good fight against conservatives who continue to insist that honoring a woman isn’t about equipping her for worry-free sex at taxpayer expense.

The Worldwide ‘War on Women’

Originally posted at American Thinker

American women have now been esteemed to such a level that for taking a stand against religious liberty and becoming the nation’s contraceptive cover girl, Sandra Fluke is actually being considered as TIME magazine’s Person of the Year.

Women who commiserate with Sandra likely view themselves as also suffering the hammers of hell here in the misogynist war zone called America.  After all, American women have withstood the abuse and pain of living thus far without the benefit of free contraceptives.  Now, however, equipped with newfound fame and with the re-election of Barack Obama signifying a battle won, maybe Ms. Fluke can now branch out and become an international spokesperson on how women around the world can stand strong in the face of male-imposed tyranny.

Who better than Sandra to represent injustices such as a 15-year-old girl being beheaded by a male cousin over a rejected marriage proposal?

Here in America, while girls of Mexican-American descent picked out dresses for a festive quinceañera, in the Imam Sahib district of Kunduz province, 15-year-old Gisa was out gathering water by the river when she was ambushed by close male cousin Sadeq, who proceeded to saw off her head with a knife.

Gisa’s father refused to allow his daughter to marry because of her tender age.  So, instead of a wedding dress and a wedding, the girl’s headless body was returned to her family, wrapped in a sheet and dressed for a funeral.

With that in mind, Sandra Fluke did do a bang-up job on Capitol Hill advancing awareness of the war on women by schooling the Catholic hierarchy on polycystic ovary syndrome.  So why not fly Sandra out to Khanabad to give a similar speech to Afghani men about the discriminatory display of hostility exhibited when one separates the head of a young girl from her body?

After she celebrates the rampant practice of female feticide, Sandra can then turn her attention toward injustices like beheading, stoning, genital mutilation, rape, and splashing acid in the faces of Afghani girls.  Then the war-on-women/endometriosis expert can pack her copy of TIME magazine and a fresh supply of free contraceptives and fly off to Michoacán, Mexico.

After all, it was in Michoacán that former mayor of Tiqicheo Maria Santos Gorrostieta’s half-nude, mutilated body was recently found dumped in a rural field.

Maria stood up to drug cartels over marijuana and heroin in the same way Ms. Fluke stood up to the patriarchal Catholic Church over the right to NuvaRings and FemCaps.  One difference, though — Sandra Fluke became a liberal hero, while Maria was kidnapped, tortured, and then executed.

America has Sandra Fluke working on behalf of free contraceptives for all, and Mexico had Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who died defying a drug-driven turf war.  Unlike America’s gutsy Sandra Fluke, Maria didn’t live long enough to have the opportunity to solicit free birth control in front of Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Instead, what this lovely young woman did do was spend her short life working selflessly on behalf of the region’s poor.

Before her death, the mayor had already suffered and survived many gunshot wounds at the hands of drug cartels.  Even Maria’s husband, the town’s former mayor José Sánchez Chávez, was killed in one ambush.  In a subsequent attack, gunmen opened fire again on Santos Gorrostieta, leaving her scarred, maimed, and in need of acolostomy bag.

When Gorrostieta left office, her security detail was withdrawn.  Then, like Gisa’s cousins, the former mayor’s vengeful stalkers lay in wait to seek the retribution that had formerly evaded them.

Eight days after Gorrostieta pleaded that the life of her daughter be spared, farm workers found the woman’s battered corpse on the side of the road.  What happened at the hands of the quasi-religious drug cartel La Familia Michoacana during the previous week, no one knows for sure.  Still, it’s reassuring to know that there’s someone like Sandra Fluke out there, who can, having endured gender oppression at the hands of male clergy at Georgetown University Law Center, empathize with Maria’s pain.

Maria Santos once said, “Despite my own safety and that of my family, what occupies my mind is my responsibility toward my people, the children, the women, the elderly and the men who break their souls every day without rest to find a piece of bread for their children.”

Prior to her throat being slit, little Gisa’s last words were probably a cry for help for someone to save her life.  Sandra Fluke, on the other hand, is celebrated for furthering the fabricated, self-absorbed point that “[Paul] Ryan’s abortion position kills women.”

It is a shame that in some circles, women having to pay for their own birth control or abortion elicits a greater outcry than females being victimized by multiple assassination attempts or decapitation by a close relative.

In the end, for her part in the “war on women” Fluke did get a gig at the DNC Convention and will get her beloved contraceptives for free and, unlike young Gisa and Maria Santos Gorrostieta, will also likely achieve fame on the cover of TIME magazine.

Suffice it to say that while women suffer and die all around the world, in America, liberal “ladies” represented by the likes of political prop Sandra Fluke come across like a bunch of whining ingrates who defame the memory of martyrs like Maria Santos Gorrostieta and innocents like Gisa — two victims of the world’s real war on women.

The Sandra Fluke Traveling War on Women Show

Originally posted at American Thinker blog

Sandra Fluke was a third-year student at Georgetown Law and past president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) when, on behalf of women with ovarian cysts, she showed up at an unofficial hearing before House Democrats.  Fluke appeared before America to demand that the Jesuit-run university offer health insurance to students that covered contraception and abortion. As a result, Ms. Fluke is now a general in a contrived war on women – a battle that started when Democrats attempted to invade the Catholic Church with liberal policy.

Ms. Fluke became infamous when radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh satirically called her a “slut,” which instantly thrust her into the role of spokeswoman for consequence-free sex.  In the course of the hysterical backlash, President Barack Obama called her to soothe her hurt feelings and congratulate her parents for having such a heroic daughter. Eventually, Rush did apologize to Sandra for suggesting that a single woman begging the entire country for free birth control was a bit slutty.

But it didn’t end there. Sandra’s meteoric rise to fame continued when she shared her wisdom at the DNC Convention. Now, on behalf of Barack Obama, just weeks prior to the 2012 election, Fluke is taking her reproductive justice spiel to cities all across America.

Sandra Fluke’s Traveling War on Women Show is one part of an effort by Democrats to drive voters to the polls to vote early.  Recently, at a “Sak ‘N Save” in Reno, Nevada, Sandra spoke to a group of 10 who were either eager to hear what she had to say, thought she might be handing out free samples, or quite possibly were looking for an opportunity to pack Ms. Fluke’s groceries.

Seemingly overwhelmed by her own celebrity, Sandra told the crowd hanging on her every word that 2012 has turned out to be not quite what she expected.

The newly-minted law school grad probably thought the Catholic Church would roll over and provide the insurance and that she and her free contraceptives could fade into obscurity, but so far the poor girl has been subjected to just the opposite. Instead, sort of how Halle Berry became the face of Revlon, the Georgetown Law graduate has become the fresh face of free contraceptives.

Addressing those 10 people in Reno, Fluke said “A lot of women come to me and tell me stories individually about their lives about what access to healthcare has meant to them; what the Affordable Care Act is going to mean to them.”

Sandra inspired the rapt Reno ten when she claimed “A lot of young people tell me how important it was to stay on their parents’ plan until they were 26.”  For those eager to realize the American Dream, there’s nothing like being 26, living in Mom and Dad’s musty basement, and having open access to all the birth control one could ever desire.

And if those contraceptives should fail, not to worry, Sandra shared that “Folks tell [her] what a difference it made to be able to rely on Planned Parenthood when they needed it and what it would mean if Mr. Romney gets his way to defund Planned Parenthood.”

What Sandra failed to warn her audience about was that most Planned Parenthood clinics do not provide the mammograms Barack Obama claims is the reason for funding the abortion provider.  Moreover, Sandra also forgot to mention that, just like Sesame Street, Planned Parenthood would do just fine without federal funding, which means liberals have created yet another straw man for their endless parade of female dupes to drag around.

Nonetheless, as Ms. Fluke takes her show on the road, she’s gathering quite a fan base. In Reno, a gentleman named Leo Horishny was among those who battled the multitudes to get a chance to see Fluke. Horishny said he wanted to see the person whom members of the media had used “intimidating rhetoric against as a political tactic.”

Horishny believes that “intimidating rhetoric” is “a scary trend today?” No Leo, what’s really frightening is Sandra Fluke taking her free contraceptive pitch so seriously that she’s willing to compete with the weekly sales circular for the attention of 10 people at a place called “Sak ‘N Save.”
