I know there are still a lot of good, decent conservatives out there as I have a lot of friends and family who fall into that category. But the most vocal members, those who seems to be steering the Republican party, frequently come off as such cartoonish assholes that it sometimes feels like a parody.
I just think these protestors need to find better leaders and role models than people who are convicted murderers, or who want to adopt a policy (Sharia law) in the U.S. that is completely against the women's rights that these protestors claim to be fighting for.

Seriously, an advocate of adopting Sharia law in the U.S. as a leader and role model in the women's rights movement? Don't you realize how irrational that is?

And since when does someone have to a be conservative to think that skipping school, and standing in the street in front of traffic, are bad ideas?

Re: DVD Polizei's International Woman's Day Thread

Some people are claiming that women get paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing "the exact same work" as a man.

Others are responding to this claim by saying that it's not "the exact same work," and that you if adjust for education, occupation, experience, and hours worked per week, then women and men are paid the same.

To those who think that women really do get paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing "the exact same work" as a man, I have two questions:

1) Why haven't greedy employers fired all of their higher paid male workers and replaced them with lower paid female workers?

2) Why didn't President Obama enforce the Equal Pay Act, which was signed by President Kennedy in 1963, and which bans employers from paying women less than men for doing the same work?

Very good points. And you've only made 6 posts. That's rather amazing. Keep it up.

Oh please, they could find the most perfect person to lead them and protest in the most perfect way (whatever that is) and people will still shit on it.

It's all about one group holding on to power by maintaining the status quo and dictating to everyone how things should be.

At what point do Americans get fed up enough to vote a completely clean slate?

Re: DVD Polizei's International Woman's Day Thread

Linda Sarsour made these four tweets in favor of the U.S. adopting Sharia law:

Quote:
https://web.archive.org/web/20170123...73703588700160

10 weeks of PAID maternity leave in Saudi Arabia. Yes PAID. And ur worrying about women driving. Puts us to shame.

https://web.archive.org/web/20170122...22589967949824

shariah law is reasonable and once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics

https://web.archive.org/web/20170123...27052727615488

You'll know when you're living under Sharia Law if suddenly all your loans & credit cards become interest free. Sound nice, doesn't it?

https://web.archive.org/web/20170123...26262218813440

If you are still paying interest than Sharia Law hasn't taken over America.

Sharia law bans women from driving cars, prohibits women from appearing alone in public, calls for girls to have their genitals mutilated, and gives a woman’s testimony in court only half the value of a man’s.

After Sarsour made those tweets, liberals chose her to be one of the organizers of the January 21, 2017 Women’s March.

A woman named Donna Hylton spent 27 years in a maximum-security prison for being an accessory to the kidnapping, torture, rape, and murder of a gay man. After Hylton got out of prison, liberals asked her to be a speaker at the January 21, 2017 Women’s March.

Rasmea Yousef Odeh is a a convicted Palestinian terrorist who participated in the bombing of a grocery store in Israel which killed two students. She was a role model for the March 8, 2017 “Day without a Woman."

Female participants were encouraged to skip school so they could spend the day standing in the street in front of oncoming traffic.

Glamour Names Sharia Law Apologist Linda Sarsour ‘Woman of the Year’

October 31, 2017

How does defending sharia law translate into feminist intersectionality? For the Women’s March, it’s a key part of their work.

Glamour Magazine is willing to buy into this fake intersectionality. The latest issue, named Linda Sarsour one of its Glamour 2017 Women of the Year. As a co-chair of the Women’s March, Sarsour has been honored by Time Magazine and defended by the New York Times as a target of “right-wing hate.” But no one has pointed out that Sarsour has actually promoted Sharia law as beneficial.

Not only that, Sarsour has vehemently gone after women who have spoken out against Sharia Law, like Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying that they deserved “an ass whooping” and “their vaginas taken away” for making “front page covers and shit.” (Classy, isn’t she?) What makes this even worse is that Ali is actually a victim of female genital mutilation.

The Women’s March was all about “intersectionality,” according to Glamour. (That is, the pooling of the angry complaints of various grievance groups into a single, cacophonous whine aimed at the only real enemy: straight white males.) The co-chairs, including Sarsour, “put most everything else in their lives on hold, working around the clock to build websites and marketing materials and, most of all, to make sure intersectionality was a feature, not a bug.” But the Women’s March wouldn’t let pro-life groups march at the event, so was there intersectionality?

Glamour painted the Soros-funded Women’s March in the brightest, most woke light possible: “Soon [Teresa] Shook and [Bob] Bland joined forces, attracting the attention of thousands who were angry that voters had elected a race-baiting white man hostile to issues like reproductive rights, civil rights, and fair pay.”

Even CNN’s Jake Tapper got into a well-documented disagreement with Sarsour over Twitter. He called her comments to Ayaan Hirsi Ali “ugly sentiments.” But Sarsour attacked Tapper as a “member of the alt-right,” even though Tapper is Jewish, and decidedly not espousing the anti-Semitic alt-right beliefs.

But feminists know best how to turn a blind eye.

Did a quick search, Sarsour's name isn't even on this page. That's because she was one of a group of women who organized the women's march:

https://www.glamour.com/story/women-...7-womens-march

And what do they say about Linda Sarsour specifically? Prepare to be shocked.
Let me quote the article:
Quote:
And there were four cochairs: Tamika D. Mallory, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, and Bland.
and, this is the big one, guys:
Quote:
Pictured in header, from left: Bob Bland, Tamika D. Mallory, Linda Sarsour, Paola Mendoza, Carmen Perez, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Janaye Ingram, Ginny Suss.
I know, right? Madness. Look at Glamour, falling over themselves, to promote this woman...
