...is that if you are a conservative woman - especially one running for elected office - you will be classified by the Democrats and the media in one of two ways - or, in Miss O'Donnell's case, in both.
Either a nut or a slut.
The revolting sexual fantasy piece posted in Gawker should put paid to any naive supposition that the Left really believes in all of this "feminist" crap. The Democrats strictly believe in the empowering of women who agree with them. Should you dare to disagree, well...then you're just asking for what we're about to do to you, aren't you?
For some reason, when liberals see a Sarah Palin or a Carrie Prejean [and now a Christine O'Donnell], the impulse immediately is for the lowest road possible: not to engage them, but to defile them. Not to prove them wrong, but to humiliate them in the vilest way possible. The immediate, insatiable urge of the Left is to wreck a female adversary so completely that no one can look at them the same way; so that anyone who sees their victim will see the marks on them and turn away in disgust or openly mock with righteous venom, and to hopefully so emotionally destroy their female "enemies" that their self-esteem is ravaged, and they slink away from public life, alone and ashamed.
There's a word for this type of assault. Rape.
Yes, the assault isn't physical, but the thought process behind the rapes of Palin and Prejean are identical to that of the common street rapist: To defile, degrade, humiliate, embarrass, and make themselves feel better in the process. A broken victim is what each hopes to obtain, and neither stops the assault until the surrender is complete.
The liberal blogosphere seems to be aghast; most likely because it fears an attack this blatant, in broad daylight, might cause a "pro-O'Donnell" backlash. It appears as if even NOW can recognize a metaphorical rape when they see one; they must have had to swallow hard before they posted this piece in her defense. Still, I have to agree with K-Lo here: I wonder if they would have issued the statement if Chris Coons weren’t so ahead in the polls...
