The days of the Democrat Party claiming to be the “Party of Women” are over.
Voters simply won’t buy it, given the series of scandals involving alleged sexual abuse, harassment and exploitation of women at the hands of powerful men within and around the party.
Harvey Weinstein, a big-time fundraiser for Democrat politicians and causes is the latest high-profile, egregious example. According to The New York Times, Weinstein’s outrageous sexual abuse and harassment of women went on for decades — while countless politicians including former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Al Franken and other Democrats accepted donations from him.
Many Democrat pols who gladly accepted wads of Weinstein’s cash claim they didn’t know about the sexual harassment of actresses, journalists and other professional women.
Hard to believe, given Weinstein’s abuse was well-known in Hollywood circles .
So, while progressives including the Bay State’s Sen. Elizabeth Warren were accusing the Republican Party of waging a “War on Women,” Hollywood liberal Weinstein was truly waging war on women by depriving them of a safe work environment. Weinstein’s harassment resulted in at least eight legal settlements, according to reports.
And he’s not the only liberal who turned out to be a predator.
Anthony Weiner, husband of Hillary Clinton’s former top 2016 campaign staffer Huma Abedin, has been sentenced to prison for sexual misconduct with a minor. We’ll spare you the sexting details but know this: The former Democratic U.S. congressman —a convicted sex offender —is no one you want your daughters, sisters or female friends to be around.
Then there’s other former major Democrat donors like billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who back in 2008 was sentenced to jail for soliciting sex with a minor charges.
The Democrats somehow managed to weather having a president impeached for a highly inappropriate sexual relationship with a young, vulnerable intern.
But knowing what we know to date, Democrats cannot insult voters’ intelligence by continuing to spin the nonsense they are the “party of women,” protecting our rights and well-being, when some of the most powerful among them are abusing women — including minors.
This weekend, progressives have been besieging Democrats in emails with dire warnings of the GOP taking away birth control coverage in women’s health plans.
If they want to have a prayer of fixing that, they better address the deep problems in their own party.
Or else they can resign themselves to Republican control of government for years to come.
And they can thank the male degenerates in their party for sabotaging their cause.
