“Walk softly. But carry a big lipstick.”

Today, in Columbia, South Carolina, two of the women who are showing America what real feminism is, will appear together, at which time Sarah Palin will officially endorse Nikki Haley for South Carolina Governor. I had the honor of meeting Nikki Haley, and hearing her speak, in Atlanta at the Red State Gathering last Summer.

She’s even more impressive in person than she is on paper (or web). She was one of several women, including Liz Cheney whom I also adore, who spoke at that event, each as impressive as the next.  All smart as whips, charismatic, charming, quick, impassioned, energetic and with a fighting spirit embodying my personal motto: “Walk softly. But carry a big lipstick.”

The left hates that phrase and they have ridiculed me for it on more than one occasion. You see, they don’t get it. It’s not surprising, really, as we’ve all known for some time that while the left trots out the For The Women ™ meme constantly, they are anything but.  The same way that self-avowed modern day feminists are anything but feminist. In fact, they are diametrically opposed to feminism, by it’s very definition, because their entire agenda is actually harmful to women. This is why I now call them Femogynists and I’m taking the term feminist back.

True feminists are women like Sarah Palin and Nikki Haley. They are the new faces of feminism. That has a great built-in bonus, too — they are far easier on the eyes and exhibit none of that irksome hysterical screeching like the already irrelevant and soon to be extinct femogynists. They, and women like them, are coming to the forefront now.

We’ve had it, you see. We are angry. We are tired of femogynists claiming that they speak for us. We are tired of being sneered at as gender traitors for not toeing the faux feminist line and by daring to be pro-life. We are tired of the attempts to diminish Motherhood. We are tired of women being painted as perpetual victims by the left, in need of Big Daddy Government to save us.

We are tired of working so hard to raise our families and having the government take more and more away. We are angry at being treated like  children who aren’t capable of running their own lives, even down to what foods we eat. We are angry that our children’s futures are being squandered and we are fearful that they will never know the country we knew and love. We are angry that we are losing our freedom. That old phrase “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned?” Say hello to the scorned (I’m waving at you right now)

We are the women whom the left hates. And, you know if the left hates us, we must be doing something right, yes? They hate us because they don’t understand us, they actually believe that women are lesser, and they have a perverted definition of equality. With all their claims of “equality”, they don’t honestly believe that at all. Amanda Marcotte, once head blogger for cheater and long-time paternity denier John Edwards,  exposed that when she recently tried to explain why all women should be liberals:

For me, women’s rights and liberalism are, in my mind, pretty hard to unhook, and it fascinates and amuses me that you see conservatives complain that feminists are always with the democrats, as if there’s ever going to be a form of conservative feminism. You look at someone like Sarah Palin trying to wear that mantle, and you see the flaw in trying to be a so-called conservative feminist, which is that you’re not very pro-women. Women need things for equality that tailor very neatly to the general liberal agenda: Clean environment, universal healthcare, civil rights, individual rights, bodily autonomy, things like that. I fail to see how the two agendas are all that different.

Who is not very pro-women, Miss Marcotte? Silly me! I suppose you must be right because I’m a big dum-dum. How can mere women care about pesky things like the economy or icky military stuff? Math is hard! And that’s for boys! (Well, except for President Obama, evidently). I should just shut up or start screeching about my “right” to abort unborn babies so that I can be “equal” and care about pretty stuff like the environment.

Yeah, not so much. I’ll stick with Sarah Palin, Nikki Haley, Liz Cheney, Michelle Bachmann, Michelle Malkin and other strong, brilliant Moms.

I believe that the left is in for a rude awakening and a nice long time out given to them from said Mommies. Leave it to Mommy to make it all better, as always!

  1. American patriot
    It is obvious there are many quaking in their boots. The American Citizen, tax paying voting public are ready to take this country back. Palin exemplifies this and so does Haley..perfect…no…no one is; but head and shoulders above the rest!
    Bauer…a total joke and embarrassment. If you are embarrassed by Sanford; you will be mortified by Bauer!
    Barrett…who wants SC to be run like Congress? Only a total idiot!
    McMaster….what, again, and again and again, when will it end?
    Haley has bigger kuhonas than most of these nitwits and has stood strong to prove it.
    Palin has rock star status and can run with the “BIG DOGS”! All of you panty waist wimps will get your buts kicked by these girls!

  2. The Statehouse event today was like an instant tea party. Three to four thousand showed up with less than 24 hours notice and was full of energy. This was HUGE. I defy any other candidate in the race to pull something like this off.

    No matter what you may think of Palin, she has a LOT of appeal and it was very apparent.

    Nikki easily stood her own, however and it was apparent that Palin really knows Nikki and what she’s all about. It’s obvious that she recognized Nikki Haley as part of the reform movement her in SC and across the country. The race has just gotten interesting.


  3. Sounds like the masses are being controlled by more C Streeter pseudo Christian pseudo Republicans.
    It’s a con game.
    Don’t drink their koolaid.


  4. RINO alert: Nikki Haley voted for Obama’s $700 billion stimulus!

    I bet Sarah didn’t know about that, b/c Sarah was one of the most vocal opponents of Obama’s stimulus bill. Nikki always lies about voting for the stimulus on the campaign trail anyway. I’m sick and tired of lying politicians who will say anything to get elected.


    • Nikki Haley voted AGAINST the stimulus package pushed down from Washington. On May 12th of last year, she voted against S.577, the bill that ultimately forced Governor Sanford to accept the stimulus money. She also voted against H.3560, which was the final state budget that contained stimulus dollars. In addition, Nikki proposed a 24-hour reading period before the state budget was voted on in an attempt to force legislators to read the bill before voting on it. Her effort was rejected.
