TONIGHT at 8:30PM – GayPatriot’s America on BlogTalkRadio

Wow…. two weeks in a row, baby!  Tonight I’ll be talking with Ben Howe — a conservative activist and host of BTR’s “Renewing America”.  Ben attended the “Restoring Honor” rally in DC on Saturday and has some on-the-scene commentary to share.

Oh yeah… and I’m broadcasting tonight live from our nation’s capital — Washington, DC.  I couldn’t make it for the 8/28 rally, but I’m here this week for my “real” job.

And I’m just a few blocks from The White House.  Maybe I’ll hop on over to 1600 Penn Ave and ask Michelle for a crumpet.

Tune in tonight at 8:30PM for GayPatriot’s America.  We have a great chat room too!

Why Isn’t Sarah Palin a Feminist Icon?

Posted by B. Daniel Blatt at 1:27 am - August 30, 2010.
Filed under: Sarah Palin,Strong Women

If the true goal of feminism were securing the success of women in all sectors of our society, feminist leaders would be regularly singing the praises of the immediate past Governor of the Last Frontier.  I mean, conservatives, particularly social conservatives, supposedly the political group least open to the advancement of women, have been the most ready to embrace Mrs. Palin.

They line up to buy her books, travel from all corners of the country to hear her speak at the Lincoln Memorial, find inspiration in her Facebook posts, look up to her as a role model and hero.  In short, this woman has become an inspiration to and potential leader for, hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Americans.  Doesn’t their acclaim for this accomplished woman in itself validate the notion that women can inspire and lead?

And while right-wingers rally ’round this Republican, their left-wing counterparts are drawn to her like moths to a flame.   She, Sarah Palin, a woman, commands attention merely by speaking her mind. 

Instead of welcoming her rise, Palin, as Jennifer Rubin (in a most excellent post) puts it,

. . . clearly has the left in a tizzy. They have finally gotten it: she is redefining feminism. In the New York Times, two liberal feminists exhibit more than a little anxiety over the Palin juggernaut. To put it bluntly, they have Palin envy.

(Read the whole thing.  Rubin and I have similar feelings about Glenn Beck.)  

Maybe, feminists don’t like the former GOP Vice Presidential nominee because, as Rubin adds, Palin “has proved by example that a woman politician need not spout the pro-big government, pro-abortion, pro-welfare-state line.”  The charismatic woman has become “the most effective female politician in the country.”

But, maybe effective female conservatives just can’t qualify as feminist successes.

HRC to Blame for Anti-Mormon Hate Crime in California?

Recall how just a few days ago when some nut stabbed a Muslim cabbie in New York, the media were quick to highlight this hate crime while left-of-center pundits claimed conservatives and Republicans were responsible for the dastardly deed.  If a right-wing Republican didn’t do it, they at least created an environment which made such a heinous action possible.  The long-anticipated wave of anti-Muslim hate crimes was about to emerge.  

Well, it turns out that the “reportedly drunk perpetrator worked/volunteered for a liberal interfaith film company and there is zero evidence that he is a Fox News fan, Glenn Beck listener, Republican voter, or conservative blog reader.”  

And fortunately, the cabbie survived.

Now, another man who has not been so lucky will surely not get the attention the media (and at least one politician) showered on Ahmed Sharif (said cabbie).  Some nut walked into the office of Clay Sanner, a Bishop (lay church official) at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Visalia California, chatted with, then murdered the Mormon.

If the MSM treated this crime as they did the one in New York, it would lead the news while pundits would be pointing fingers at gay activists, perhaps blaming the Human Rights Campaign or “Equality California”.  Recall, the anti-Mormon rhetoric following the passage of Prop. 8 in 2008, even resulting in a film exploring a vast and sinister LDS conspiracy against gays.

And some gay activists have been just as hateful (if not more so) in their nasty invective against Mormons as a handful of opponents of the “Ground Zero Mosque” have been against radical Islamists. (more…)
