Republicans foiled Democrats’ dreams of a Senator O’Rourke, a Governor Gillum and a Governor Abrams, and, apparently, white women are to blame for it.
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.This is my kind of woman -- my wife's too.
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.”)It's a great article, dear readers. Please read the whole thing.
