article imageGloria Steinem on Sarah Palin: Wrong Woman, Wrong Message

By Carolyn E. Price     Sep 4, 2008 in Politics
The day after Sarah Palin's rousing speech to the RNC, American feminist icon, Gloria Steinem [in what appears to be a direct appeal to those suffering from post-DNC PUMA syndrome] advises them as to where they should mark their ballot this November.
Gloria Steinem has never been afraid to speak her mind, promote her agenda, or dive head first into a challenge, whether it be exposing the abuses young women were forced to endure as Playboy Bunnies or during her very personal battle against breast cancer.
Today, Steinem has written an Op/Ed, published in the LA Times and in it she declares that feminism was never about getting one specific job for one woman (insert Sarah Palin here) but rather that it is all about "making life more fair for women everywhere" (insert everything Hillary Clinton has done here).
In true Hillary fashion (remember the cookie comment) Ms Steinem uses a kitchen analogy to further make her point:
It's not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It's about baking a new pie.
Do you need me to clarify just exactly how much it would appear that Ms. Steinhem does not like Ms. Palin? Steinem goes to the extreme by saying that the only thing that Palin shares with Clinton is "a chromosome". Gloria, I hate to tell you but there are those who would even argue that point with you!
Steinem then tries a direct appeal to those disaffected NoBama Hillary supporters by opining that if they were to vote in November for a McCain/Palin ticket as a protest that Hillary did not "win" the Democratic nomination, it would be akin to thinking that:
Somebody stole my shoes, so I'll amputate my legs.
Yes, this is from the woman whose been quoted as saying:
A woman reading Playboy feels a little like a Jew reading a Nazi manual.
There has been a lot of talk about the hypocrisy of the American conservative press and commentators, so I offer you this to think about:
Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That's their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood.
"We are family .... I've got all my Sista's with me" ... sisterhood, indeed.
