Democrat Strategists: Women Are Emotionally Incontinent Idiots

Central to the Democrat Party’s strategy is the manipulation of its largest voter block, women.

“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” –Samuel Adams (1781)

Democrat Party political strategists bank on their assumption that female voters are emotionally incontinent dupes – too irrational to discern and reject emotive political bait. Women have proven to be the most dependable and easily-swayed of the collective constituencies Demos rally ahead of general elections.

Fact: Female majorities have elected every Democrat president since 1960, and have been a major force in midterm elections. On average, women have voted for Democrat presidents by a margin exceeding six percentage points since 1980.

A look back at Barack Obama’s elections, provide case studies of how dependent the Demos are on female voters for electoral victories and, thus, pandering to women voters is a key strategy. Recall that in 2012 Obama won the female vote 55% to 44% over Mitt Romney, with single women choosing Obama by a whopping 68% to 30% margin. Obama won 57% of female voters in 2008.

Notably, women majorities also elected the previous Democrat president, Bill Clinton. In 1992, amid accusations of rape and sexual assault, Clinton won 7% more of the female vote than male vote. In 1996 he won 55% of the female vote, riding female voters to both victories.

Democrats are banking heavily on that gender gap calculus for victory in future elections.

In order to firm up their female voters, Demos bait ballot hooks with what their strategists insist is an irresistible lure for catching those who support the whole LGBTQ+++ ad nauseam spectrum of gender deniers. Democrats have found a soft spot for the gender confused in the hearts of their majority constituency – women. But their advocacy for homosexuals is a more recent strategy – primarily since Obama’s first election.

And that is precisely why they expend enormous political capital defending the gender confusion cult and even its most deviant manifestations, including “transgender” men competing as women in sports, trans groomers infiltrating elementary schools as teachers, drag queen kindergarten groomers, and now, the most grotesque of the bunch, child gender mutilators who are profiting from cutting body parts off of children.

Democrats know they can give no ground regarding defense of their deviant gender-outlier constituents because those deviants connect the dots to the 5% of Demo constituents who are in the “gay and lesbian” category, and that group is broadly supported by the Democrats’ largest and most critical voting bloc, women.

(For the record, there is no such thing a “transgendered.” The word itself constitutes an egregious deception. A gender disoriented person may “identify” as the other gender, or one of the now-myriad of gender variations between the two, but they will always be the same gender they were at conception – male or female.)

The more traditional lure for female voters, though equally spurious, us also a gender appeal – “equal pay for equal work” built around the “war on women” chapter of their tried and true Politics of Disparity political playbook.

That enticement is a variation on the Democrat Party’s “income inequality” rhetoric. Recall if you will, that to foment class warfare sentiments among his proletariat, Obama declared that the “defining challenge of our time” is income inequality, and he promised to make that the focus “for the rest of my presidency.”

Never mind that, in a side-by-side compensation comparison corrected for experience, college major, time on the job, type of job, risk of injury and the like, the wage gap between women and men is not 23 cents for every dollar a man earns, as Obama and his minions have falsely and repeatedly claimed. Indeed, when corrected for these factors, the disparity all but vanishes. Even the liberal Washington Post has awarded Obama “Two Pinocchios” for this repeated “77 cents on the dollar” falsehood.

And, never mind that, according to the Census Bureau’s National Bureau of Economic Research, the last recession ended in June 2009 – unless you are among the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs since then. However, under Obama’s watch, the median income of women is down more than four percent in constant dollars.

Calling Obama out on this latest of his long list of lies, Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler wrote, “Unless women stop getting married and having children, and start abandoning careers in childhood education for naval architecture, this huge gap in wages will almost certainly persist. Democrats thus can keep bringing it up every two years. … [Obama] must acknowledge that average annual wages do not begin to capture what is actually happening in the work force and society.”

University of Michigan economist Mark Perry notes that references to the median salary between men and women are “meaningless” and concludes that the pay gap between Obama’s staffers is not based on discrimination, but “based on the fact that women and men are playing different roles within the organization.”

Adding insult to the injury of the “gender pay gap” fallacy, Obama’s spokesman Jay Carney was at a loss for words when confronted in a press briefing about a report that among White House staffers, the median salary for females was 12% lower than male staffers. So much for all that gender pay gap rhetoric.

And the gender-pay gap for staffers on the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which is endeavoring to advance Obama’s income inequality deception, is worse than that “national average” Obama keeps repeating. In fact, women at the DSCC are only paid 70 cents for every dollar their male counterparts collect.

Oh, and Obama’s Republican predecessor, George W. Bush, appointed six women to cabinet-level posts, while only three of Obama’s cabinet posts are filled by females. All this being said, the facts are irrelevant if Obama and his Leftist cadres are correct in their assumption that a majority of women voters are too ignorant discern between truth and fiction, and are incapable of forming an original thought.

Of course, that “ignorant” assumption equally applies to most Democrat voters of either gender, and all those gender-confused constituents in between. This is demonstrably true of the party’s delusional leading ladies: Former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth “Honest Injun” Warren, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters and, of course their 2016 nominee and presumed victor, Hillary Clinton.

Consider this sampling of erudite wisdom from this gaggle of Demos…

Wasserman Schultz on the difference in Democrats and the racist Tea Party folks: “The difference between the way we express our First Amendment rights and the way I’ve seen Tea Party extremists express their right is dramatically different. I don’t see any swastikas or any pictures of the president in black face or burned in effigy here.”

Pelosi on ObamaCare: “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

Boxer on life after death: “Those who survived the San Francisco earthquake said, ‘Thank God, I’m still alive.’ But, of course, those who died, their lives will never be the same again.”

Maxine Waters on Democratic Socialism: “Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal will be about socializing … uh, um … Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”

Warren, the Left’s standard-bearer, on Obama’s infamous assertion “You didn’t build that”: “People worked hard, they built a business, God bless, but they moved their goods on roads the rest of us helped build, they hired employees the rest of us helped educate, they plugged into a power grid the rest of us helped build.”

Feinstein on “sensible gun control policy”: “Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe.”

Michelle Obama on Barack’s wage gap nonsense: “He signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act into law to help women get equal pay for equal work, because he knows what that pay means to families.” (Apparently he does NOT know what losing a job means to families.)

Recall if you will, this comment from Bill Clinton’s heir apparent, Hillary, on the long list of women he sexually molested: “Who is going to find out? These women are trash. Nobody’s going to believe them.” The presumed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee had this to say at Andrews Air Force Base over the bodies of our Benghazi dead murdered on her watch: “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.”

And a Hillary bonus quote about her plans to get elected in 2016: “We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good. … God bless the America we are trying to create.”

Too bad…

The Demos’ gender gap appeal held in the 2016 election popular vote, even though Donald Trump managed to defeat Hillary Clinton in the electoral college vote. A majority of women (54%) voted for Clinton while a majority of men (52%) voted for Trump.

However, Trump did not get so lucky in his reelection bid.

In the 2020 election, continuing the gender gap trend, a majority of women (57%) voted for Joe Biden, while a majority of men (53%) voted for Donald Trump. Notably among white voters, majorities of both men (61%) and women (55%) voted for Trump. Notably however, these numbers may not reflect the extent of the gender gap because of massive bulk-mail ballot fraud in mostly Democrat states.

Ahead of that election, Democrats had amplified their dependence on women being emotionally incontinent by seeding Trump Derangement Syndrome and fomenting “toxic feminism.”

Yes, Trump was defeated by the weakest Democrat ticket in five decades, becoming the first incumbent president since 1932 to lose both the presidency and control of both the House and Senate, the latter losses being indicative of a broader dislike for Trump by 2018 and 2020. This despite the fact he received 13 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016.

But, Biden’s narrow 51.3% majority of the popular vote (81,283,501), giving him 306 electoral votes, was the result, as I noted previously, of the Democrats’ corrupt bulk-mail ballot fraud strategy, which they will fully implement again in 2024. Trump received 46.9% of the popular vote (74,223,975) and 232 electoral votes.

And the election was closer than electoral appearances would imply. Biden’s seven million vote margin was mostly in California and New York, but he actually won the presidency by fewer than 45,000 votes in the key electoral swing states of Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin.

The Supreme Court decision on abortion “rights” also impacted the 2020 and 2022 results.

As reported in National Review’s gender gap analysis for the Republicans “red wave” fizzle in the 2022 midterm: “Men voted Republican by a 14-point margin, while women voted Democratic by an 8-point margin. That’s a 22-point gender gap.”

So what’s the GOP to do?

Fact is, most of the women I know are strongly predisposed to vote against leftists. (For the record, I’ve been married to one of them for 25 years — a very strong, articulate, conservative woman who long ago managed to cast off her liberal Duke University indoctrination.) However, I remain perplexed as to why substantial majorities of women consistently vote for Democrats in state and national elections.

In search of answers to the political gender gap question, I asked some of the women I admire most why they think the gap exists. I received many responses, but these were most representative:

The traditional family model has disintegrated in recent decades, thus the GOP focus on the family means less to women.

Democrat women don’t care about scandals involving their leftist icons. That requires too much knowledge about current events and consequences of lawless behavior.

Democrats throw tremendous resources behind female candidates, as Emily’s List’s success indicates. There isn’t a conservative organization that rivals it in terms of financial resources.

Democrats have a strong ground game in general. Republicans don’t.

Tens of millions of women have had abortions — and most will never acknowledge that the child they aborted had value, or was a life worth saving. They completely reject the conservative view which affirms life, because that directly challenges a deep conviction that their abortion did not take a life.

Clinton and Obama had charisma — for too many women, integrity and leadership are overshadowed by charisma!

Democrats have told women for years that they are victims and must depend on the Democrat Party in order to succeed — or just survive. Women, in greater numbers, are drinking that Kool-Aid.

There are a lot of angry women in America — and Democrats are masters of hatred and division, thus attract angry people.

Single moms are worried about kids imprisoned in terrible schools in collapsed neighborhoods, and are assured by Democrats that the only way out is to support Demos.

Republicans tend to project that self-sufficiency and upward mobility are “white things” rather than colorblind objectives for all Americans. As you have written often, Liberty is colorblind, but Republicans do a poor job of making that case.

Most conservative women are married with families — most women are not. Those who aren’t married are more likely to vote Democrat.

Increasing numbers of women are responsible for family finances and carrying the load alone while men are absent from their families, so they want Democrats to take care of them.

The liberal left appeals to the hearts of women. We want to help everybody out, don’t let anybody suffer — we are sort of wired this way — and the Democrat Party projects itself as the savior of the impoverished, even though its policies keep people in material and spiritual poverty.

There are not enough GOP women in leadership and role models, though some of the strongest members of the Republican caucus are women.

Democrats offer more “quick fix” patches rather than long-term solutions. Quick fixes are appealing to women voters!

Republican campaigns focus on issues that “thinking people” understand, including the complexities of their Democrat lies and deceptions, but too many people don’t care about honesty and integrity.

Democrats do a better job of presenting a hopeless story and promising a fairy tale ending.

Women love “justice” and the Democrat Party, with all of its racial, gender and class “divide and conquer” campaigns, rallies a lot of support projecting that it’s the party of “justice.” The success of their Marxist so-called “Black Lives Matter” charade is a case in point.

Republicans have a long history of supporting women. The 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote was introduced in 1878 by a Republican. In 1916, the first woman elected to Congress was a Republican. The GOP seems to have forsaken its early advocacy for women, instead focusing on families, which have, largely as a result of Democrat policies, disintegrated.

The bottom line is that any GOP candidate who can clearly articulate why Liberty and free enterprise are winning goals for women and their families, will attract enough voters, male and female, to defeat the Left’s socialist propaganda machine. A majority of women are NOT the emotionally incontinent idiots Democrats believe they are. Moreover, there are a rising number of conservative women leaders who are the most articulate and forthright advocates of Liberty in the history of our Republic – more so than most of their male counterparts.
