OPINION | Barry Richard: Flying Nun Backs Bee’s ‘C-Word’ Rant
I don't care what your position is on Roseanne's suicide by tweet, but if you are defending Samantha Bee's "C-Bomb" attack on Ivanka Trump, there is something seriously wrong with you. Especially if you are a woman.
Some are attempting to make the argument that Roseanne's comment was racist while Bee's was not, therefore, Roseanne's offense was somehow more egregious than Bee's. I guess that makes it okay to brutalize women in such a vile and disgusting manner?
I am told that calling a black woman an ape is an attack on all black people. So why isn't dropping a "C-Bomb" on a woman an attack on all women?
Even CNN condemned Bee's attack on Trump.
There is no word more offensive to women than the one dropped by Samantha Bee against Ivanka Trump. The term is vile, sexist, humiliating and degrading. It is the "N-Word" for women. And yet, Bee's words have gone unpunished. In fact, they have been celebrated and applauded by other women.
Actress Sally Field, a left-wing activist, serves on the board of Vital Voices, an organization promoting women's rights. Yet, Field defends Samantha Bee's attack on Ivanka Trump by tweeting the following:
Field's support was echoed by other women including alleged comedian Kathy Griffin, actresses Alyssa Milano and Natasha Rothwell.
As well as feminist attorney Lisa Bloom.
Not to mention such notable male liberals such as Michael Moore.
The war on women is alive and well in America and is being waged by the left on independent thinking, strong women. And largely by other women!
Male or female, if you are offended by this vile and vicious attack by the MS-13-coddling, sanctuary city-supporting, woman-bashing, Trump-hating band of lunatics, don't forget to vote in November.
