The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

Among the many post-midterm narratives promoted by Democrats and their trained hamsters in the media is one that argues that "white women" are responsible for the losses suffered by progressive superstars Beto O'Rouke in TX, Andrew Gillum in FL (although the Dems are working overtime to reverse the results of that election), and Stacy Abrams in GA. If it wasn't for "uniformed white women" who do the bidding of their "white supremacist husbands" who themselves are members of the "patriarchy," every one of those progressive heroes would now be preparing to lead us in the manner of Nicholas Maduro in Venezuela. The tragedy of it all is numbing.

Because I'm a de facto member of "the patriarchy," I'll allow a person of another gender to comment. Allie Stuckey writes:
One Twitter warrior deemed white women “footsoldiers of the patriarchy” for voting Republican, claiming that their decision is based on a desire to submit to their husbands. Jemele Hill, staff writer for The Atlantic, argued that white women are not “the face of feminism,” because they voted for Ted Cruz and, in 2016, for Donald Trump. A viral tweet listed Republicans for which white women voted in the midterms and concluded, “white women gonna white.”

Don’t worry, though. The Women’s March is here to help us out: “There’s a lot of work to do, white women. A lot of learning. A lot of growing. We want to do it with you.”

Phew! For a second there I thought we were going to have to continue navigating these scary political waters on our own. I’m so relieved to know that, instead of thinking for ourselves, we’ll have obscure liberal Twitter activists and Linda Sarsour guiding us. I’m hoping my tyrannical husband won’t be too upset with me for going against his commands. Last week he gave me an extra fifty cents in my allowance and told me to “buy something pretty,” so maybe he’ll be just as gracious when I tell him I’ve started forming my own opinions.

The irony is, of course, rich. Leftist feminists, long-asserting the strength and independence of women, now argue that some women are so weak that they need to depend on liberals to tell them how to vote. They cannot fathom that we Republican “white women” may actually have different values than they do. It must be because we are “foot soldiers of the patriarchy.” (That’s newspeak for “self-hating idiots.”)

When certain demographics vote majoritively for Democrats, those people are smart, brave, strong, important. Ninety-seven percent of black women voting for Abrams has nothing to do with identity politics or the belief in the false narrative that big government policies will benefit them. No, they’re wise. White women who vote for Republicans, though—they’re idiots.
The Left's inability to see both the irony and hypocrisy of their position on women is astonishing. Then again, in their eyes, you're NOT a woman unless you're a leftist. You are NOT to be believed, you are NOT to be respected, your are NOT protected by their blanket argument that any disagreement with a Leftist woman is misogyny—nothing more and nothing less.

In fact, at the risk of over generalizing, the identity politics crowd is very, very selective in assigning identities. You're not a Muslim if you criticize Islam (think: Ayann Hersi Ali), you're not a black if you're a conservative black (think: Thomas Sowell) or even an African American who has the temerity to think for themselves (think: Kanye West or Candice Owens). You're not a Latino if you're a Republican (think: Ted Cruz), and you're certainly not a woman if you're a conservative (think: Nikki Haley). In fact, you're not a Jew is you're foolish enough to question whether guilty until proven innocent or BDS is an appropriate philosophy.

What you are is a threat ... to the insane notion that all women, all blacks, all Latinos, all Muslims, and all Jews MUST toe the leftish line, MUST align exclusively with Democrats, and MUST never, ever have any thought that conflicts with the prevailing narrative promoted by the trained hamsters in the media. And threats MUST be eliminated ... by any means necessary.
