According to Democrats, Republicans are waging a “war on women.” It has never been clear exactly what this supposed war consists of other than, of course, opposition to abortion. The only thing that is clear from the mushy-headed rhetoric of the left concerning the so-called war on women is that anyone who opposes abortion in any form, at any time, and for any reason is an enemy of women.
Liberals originally conceived the war-on-women narrative as a strategy for creating another class of victims that could be turned into a solid and dependable voting bloc for Democrats. More recently they made the narrative part of their ill-fated attempt to stem the tide of grassroots opposition to their failed policies; a rising tide that washed away their control of Congress in the mid-term elections of 2014. The war-on-women narrative utterly failed during the mid-term elections. Yet, in spite of this, Hillary Clinton’s minions are once again raising the issue as part of her campaign for the presidency.
Like most rhetoric of the left, the war-on-women narrative is based solely on emotion and bears little or no resemblance to the facts. Here is what Governor Mike Huckabee has to say about the war-on-women in his book God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy: “It was beyond ludicrous, yet quite the clever masquerade, to equate the prevailing pro-life view of Republicans to a lack of respect for women. It was, in fact, a profound regard for women that was at the heart of the Republican view that women are truly equal in worth—that they deserve, in a true meritocracy, the same opportunity and rewards that a male would receive.”
