A rightie wakes the F up

Postby Marie » Tue Oct 11, 2016 3:10 am

I'm calling Twitter progressive media tonight b/c the following Twitter thread is causing quite a stir, rounding on 2700 RTs as I write.

Marybeth (@MBGlenn) tweets:
So let me get this straight: I, a conservative female, have spent years defending the Republican Party against claims of sexism.
When I saw Republican men getting attacked I stood up for them. I came to their defense. I fought on their behalf. I fought on behalf of a movement I believed in. I fought on behalf of my principles while other women told me I hated my own sex. Not only charges of sexism, but I defended Marco Rubio during Go8, I fought in my state to stop the Scott Walker recall, etc...

Now some Trojan horse nationalist sexual predator invades the GOP, eating it alive, and you cowards sit this one out? He treats women like dogs, and you go against everything I – and other female conservatives – said you were & back down like cowards.

Get this straight: We don’t need you to stand up for us, YOU needed to stand up for us for YOU. For YOUR dignity. For YOUR reputation. Jeff Sessions says that he wouldn’t “characterize” Trump’s unauthorized groping of women as “assault.” Are you kidding me?!

Others try to rebuke his comments, yet STILL choose to vote for a sexual predator - because let’s be honest, that’s what he is. "What he said is wrong, and the way he treats women is wrong, but it’s not wrong enough for me to not vote for him."

Thanks, cowards. Various men in the movement are writing it off as normal, confirming every stereotype the left has thrown at them.

So I'm done. I'm sooo done. If you can’t stand up for women & unendorse this piece of human garbage, you deserve every charge of sexism thrown at you. I’m just one woman, you won’t even notice my lack of presence at rallies, fair booths, etc. You won’t really care that I’m offended by your silence, and your inability to take a stand. But one by one you’ll watch more women like me go, & you’ll watch men of ACTUAL character follow us out the door.

And what you’ll be left with are the corrupt masses that foam at the mouth every time you step outside the lines. Men who truly see women as lesser beings, & women without self-respect. & your “guiding faith” & "principles" will be attached to them as well. And when it’s all said and done, all you’ll have left is the party The Left always accused you of being. Scum.

CC: @SpeakerRyan @tedcruz @marcorubio @Reince And every other tool refusing to unendorse this monster.

Quite a revelation!

She also tweets (adding, "Context matters"):

So you can tell she's been sorting all this out for a while!
