Identity Politics FAIL By The Democrat Ladies In White At State Of The Union

One of the biggest spectacles in virtue signaling at the SOTU was all the Democrat women dressed in white. Last year their excuse was the #MeToo movement. This year it’s because women empowerment and honoring the suffragette movement. Needless to say, the memes and jokes have been writing themselves. However, the ladies in white got it all wrong last night.

Of course, prior to the State of the Union, the Democrat women made sure to hustle to the microphones to ensure that EVERYONE KNEW how great and wonderful they all are!

Oh. Well, that’s special. So why white?

“Wearing suffragette white is a respectful message of solidarity with women across the country, and a declaration that we will not go back on our hard-earned right,” Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel said in a statement to CNN.

‘A respectful message of solidarity…’ ??!! THEIR hard-earned right? Let’s talk about the history of women’s suffrage shall we?

First of all, many of the women involved in women’s suffrage were ummmmm REPUBLICANS. Not only that, but it was Republicans who passed the 19th Amendment into law.

At the request of Susan B. Anthony, Sen. A.A. Sargent, a Republican from California, introduced the 19th Amendment in 1878. Sargent’s amendment (also known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment) was defeated four times by a Democrat-controlled Senate. When the Republican Party regained control of Congress in 1919, the Equal Suffrage Amendment finally passed the House in May of that year and in the Senate in June.

When the Amendment was submitted to the states, 26 of the 36 states that ratified it had Republican legislatures. Of the nine states that voted against ratification, eight were Democratic. Twelve states, all Republican, had given women full suffrage before the federal amendment was ratified.

Whoops. So much for that narrative. I’m still laughing at this instance that happened last night. The Democrat women still don’t seem to realize that they got owned by Trump.

The Democrat ladies in white want to be the only ones to own the narrative of women’s rights. They have and are demanding that they be the sole authority on what women’s right is and isn’t. Well guess what, I’m not playing your game. Nor are a lot of others.

This from South Carolina State Rep Nancy Mace (R-SC) is a must read:

I’m a mom, a businesswoman and a state legislator serving South Carolina. At a young age, I was determined to forge my own path through life. And nearly 20 years ago I became the first female graduate of The Citadel after following in my father’s footsteps. I also have experience starting my own business and in 2017 ran for – and won – a seat in the state legislature, on my own terms.

As women we make a fundamental mistake when we make our identity as women the WHOLE story.

The point of breaking glass ceilings is so that, after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore. The American experiment is built on the premise that if you set a goal, show up on time and work hard, then success is within reach. We can ALL achieve the American dream regardless of our gender.

The identity politics being overplayed by liberal women in Washington, on display last night during the president’s State of the Union last night, further sets women back rather than advancing our futures. Acting like we just earned the right to vote and are held back strictly because of our gender is an enormous disservice to women everywhere.

We don’t need to dress alike.

We don’t need to think alike.

That in spades! We do NOT have to think alike to pursue our dreams, nor should we let our definition of success be defined by others.

Yet, that is what the Democrat ladies in white are demanding of us all.

I couldn’t agree more. The identity politics on full display last night was not empowering for women on any level. I’m certainly not held back by my gender, the fact that they believe they are is a sad commentary on them.

I’m with Nancy Mace. Hard pass on that kind of identity politics. I’ll march to my own drummer thank you very much!

    Democrat women all dressing in white.

    Their Granddaddies used to all dress in white, too.

    Oh, disagree slightly. It is VERY empowering for those women in power. When they can get the sheep bleating hysterically in unison behind them, they can rise to the position they feel they deserve.

    (BTW, you can’t empower “women”. You can empower this woman or that woman, or that group of women over there. But you can’t empower all women as a single group. The only thing you can do for the group en masse is to free them to empower themselves.)

    Otherwise, spot on.

  • It’s interesting that neither of the Senators running for POTUS in 2020 participated in the White Party at the SOTU. More interesting that my Senator from AZ (Senator Barbie PhD) wore bright pink, and was admonished by her fellow lady in White to stop being so enthusiastic about the SOTU.

    It’s a good thing the Mean Girls all wore white. It makes it easier for us to see who participates in their “Groupthink” mentality. One that only supports women who think and act like they do. While she didn’t get my vote, I’m secretly hoping Senator Barbie PhD is a cactus thorn in the white bubble.

    How soon they forget that in the Civil Rights Act of the 60s (exact year escapes me), every single southern democrat senator voted AGAINST blacks having the right to vote. Al Gore, Sr. was one of the leaders then. Those women are just following in their forefathers’ footsteps.

  • Dietrich says:

    OK, who is the Dem chick in beige (or is it creme’?) sitting behind what looks like Rep. Schiff?

  • Jim says:

    You mean that dressing in white is not the way this group signals that they are pure and virginal? Well that’s a surprise.
