We’ve gotten glimpses of blatant misogyny in the last year that is abhorrent to anyone with eyes and ears. It’s always been there for anyone willing to look but in the last year with the rise of Trump and the deplorable Republicans their ruthless manners have brought it to the forefront.
Hillary has put up with it for decades and we saw Trump play that card to the fullest last year though it wasn’t ever reported on in the MSM as it should have been.
Trump showed his disdain for women with his pussy remark and his comments to and about Megyn Kelly and has always shown that he was an adulterer and philanderer.
What we have seen in the last two weeks is the Repukes losing their cool becasue the “good old boys club” is running scared becasue our strong women in Congress are getting in their face and giving as good as they receive. From Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Patty Murray and many others showing their tenacity the Repukes are showing their misogyny loud and clear.
Our future in the Democratic Party and the country as a whole lies with women and POC not with a bunch of alt christian right wing old white men and left wing anarchists …They have had their time and it is over.


This is your Friday thread…Fire away!




64, Life long Democrat...Kossack ex-pat...fed up with the puritanical leftists wanting to destroy our Party.

    {{{Batch}}} – The misogyny was always there and will never be reported until that 6 RW corporation consortium that owns 90% of the media and influences the rest is broken up. We must/will find a way to circumvent them until we get enough power to do just that. Meanwhile we need to do what we can to protect our strong women who are being smeared by the RWNJs – and wonder how much of that got it start in a Russian fake-news dump and how much of it is just basic ignorant “faith” – like that “slept her way to AG” business. Oh really? AG is an elected position. – but then, attacking women’s sexuality is par for the course for that group.

    Been interrupted twice since I started writing this comment so I guess that’s a sign I should get back to work. :) I’ll check back when I can. moar {{{HUGS}}}

    Morning meese and Batch. Thanks for the morning edition. It makes me so mad when intelligent women are demeaned by less intelligent men. That Kamala, a distinguished POC and a senator from my great state, is treated like this just pisses me off. It’s obvious that CharliePeach (even though his avatar looks feminine) is a male who is threatened by strong women.

    102 projected today. Damn. Off to drink my coffee.

    Thanks, Batch and good morning to all! I have tabs open for Moose, Squirrel, and The Orange this morning; it’s an abundance of riches. Unfortunately, so many tabs and too little time to play today. :(

    I see Mr. Innocence himself has decided to troll the DK Village today. I’m just glad that Michael and JSappAR both know what’s been happening at the Help Desk. They won’t be fooled in the least. It boggles the mind that our little Village still causes so much angst amongst so many. Some day I might figure out why they even care; in the meantime, I find myself wishing that they’d actually read the links about Kossacks in need and pitch in to help.

      {{{DoReMI}}} – Are you kidding? The berners are the ones protesting the community needs comments. They don’t want these very real up-close-and-personal problems under their noses, they want them all tucked away in a fallen-off-the-sidebar-so-we-don’t-have-to-know-about-them separate diary. And the best thing I can come up with about why they hate us it that we walk the walk that they talk about. All hat no cattle people hate that.

        I must be incredibly naïve or just out of touch! I mean, I know that the help with the list comes primarily from maybe 2-3 communities, but I don’t understand why the lists would create protests. It’s human nature to prefer to help people that you actually “know”, particularly if one has limited resources (which is basically all of us). But to actually agitate against publicizing community needs? Yikes.

          It really floored me the first time it happened. I still don’t like it, but at least I know who it will be coming from – the people who talk about “single payer” and other government programs that should be taking care of these folks instead of asking them for money. These are also the folks who tend to assume – and sometimes accuse – folks with long-term problems or who have to keep coming back because the original problem wasn’t solved just stop-gap money was raised of being scammers. Like I said, they talk what we walk. moar {{{HUGS}}}

    I’m still noodling about the Rosenstein release from last night. There are so many plausible theories about it: it was dictated by *rump; it’s a preemptive warning about an expected video from a foreign entity; it’s an attempt to keep some of the tarnish off the DOJ. Whatever the reason, it was truly one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen, and I hope we get some clarity as to the motivation sooner, rather than later.

      Hell, I hope we get an X rated film. A girl can dream. I’d settle for the Orange Shitgibbon on tape admitting to being in Putin’s picket.

        Ya know, I honestly don’t know what line he would have to cross to lose the support of Rs in office. We now there are at least 27% of the electorate that will support him no matter what, but with elected officials, it’s anyone’s guess. A video of rape of an underage girl? Chalk that up as a sign of his virility…and that it wasn’t “really” rape. A tape of him pledging loyalty to Putin? That would be explained away as a sign of masterful negotiation. I’m not just being cynical either; we’ve already heard that “he’s new at this” is enough of an excuse for the Speaker. So what would it take?

          Dump actually shooting a Congressman on the WH lawn in full view of cameras?…

          Calling for Marshall Law country wide becasue of nothing more than his bruised ego?

          Peeing on McConnell and or Ryan in plain view of cameras?…Nah that would get cheers…lol

    Thanks Batch for the right on diary about misogyny coming out from under cover…I’ve been aware of it forever and was very concerned how the younger people I meet…even young women…didn’t see it…would laugh it off when pointed out…maybe now they will begin to see it not only in the world around them but in their own behavior…
    Yeah Bob Johnson in the DK Village last night having what amounted to a “didn’t did too” argument with Yankeedoodle…very childish and it was obvious he was policing the village comments as he appeared the second his name was mentioned in passing…extremely childish…

      He was first in this morning’s diary trying to start it all over. JSappAR indulged him in another “did not-did so” for a bit. sigh.

            I was going to thank Bob for his help but I’m sure he wouldn’t have appreciated it.
