Today is Women’s Equality Day. 95 years ago on August 26th the 19th Amendment was passed giving women the right to vote. President Obama is celebrating this day in a way the only he could do by saying that women still don’t enjoy equal rights in America.
The President issued a proclamation recognizing Women’s Equality Day with this gonzo piece of disinformation:
Since this historic achievement, our country has made great progress in building a freer and fairer society, and we continue striving to fully realize justice and equality for all. There is still more to do to secure the promise of our Nation for everyone, including ensuring that women have equal opportunities to participate in the classroom, the economy, the workplace, and our democracy. From day one, my Administration has carried forward the torch of gender equality, working tirelessly to ensure that all of America’s daughters have the same rights as her sons.
Wait. What? Women aren’t allowed to participate in the classroom? I’m not even sure what that means. Is he saying that women are banned from the classroom or that they just have to sit there not learning anything while men absorb all of the education? Either way, it’s preposterous. Women have equal access to education as well as employment in education. I know this: There are several all-women’s colleges and I can’t think of any all-men’s universities.
The jab Obama takes at employment and the economy is based on the lie that women only earn a fraction of men at the same job. This liberal propaganda tries to compare apples to oranges, which never works. Many women work part time and low paying jobs which is then contrasted with the higher paying full time jobs that many men work. There is no documented case of a man and a women with equal education and experience working the exact same job, but the women earns less.
The absolute stupidest thing Obama said is that women don’t have equal opportunities to participate in democracy. Did he forget that his proclamation was to celebrate the 19th Amendment? You know, that thing that gave women the right to vote? Not only can women vote, but they also enjoy equal access to the reigns of government. There are women mayors, Governors, Senators, and even a woman president. You can take that last one to mean that Obama is a girl, that Michelle really runs the show, or as Charlie Daniels suggested that Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett is the de facto president.
The biggest lie Obama told in this factually-challenged proclamation is that he has worked tirelessly to give women the same rights as men. Gender discrimination is banned at every level of government and in our society. Just like there is no institutional racism; there is no institutional sexism. Obama is taking credit for working tirelessly for something that is already a reality: women have equal rights and he didn’t have anything to do with it.
The other part of that lie is that Obama works tirelessly on anything. He’s the laziest bum to ever occupy the White House. Okay, maybe he works tirelessly on his golf game and jetting around the country on the taxpayer’s dime to raise money for him and the democrats, but those aren’t things that benefit anyone but himself.
Do you want to know the single worst way to celebrate women’s equality? By treating them like helpless victims. Obama is saying women are weak and pathetic and need a big strong man to give them their equal rights. It’s condescending as hell. I have absolutely no idea why women support democrats who treat them like babies.
