Leave it to Laura Ingraham.
The Fox News host has taken on liberal attacks on plenty of fronts during her career — most recently by the Cultural Revolution thugs besotted with gun grabbing poster boy David Hogg — but when she hit on the Democrat Party’s most recent disgrace, she was really striking a nerve.
The political party that claims to stand for women the most, she said, actually has the least regard for them.
The moment came as part of a monologue on Tuesday’s “The Ingraham Angle,” when Ingraham took up the subject of Eric Schneiderman, the recently resigned attorney general of New York state and a powerhouse in the Democrat Party.
Schneiderman was forced to resign effective Tuesday after a lengthy, detailed piece published by The New Yorker magazine featured four women accusing him of various forms of emotional and physical abuse. On CNN on Tuesday, Ronan Farrow, a co-author of the New Yorker piece, talked about how Schneiderman’s accusers were dissuaded from coming forward because “he had the power to do too much good for the Democratic Party.”
For Ingraham, the whole sick scandal is just the latest sign of a liberal movement being exposed its blatant hypocrisy.
The ending is damning.
“The left, while claiming to be the true, honest champions of women, at many times, at many points, considers them to be disposable,” Ingraham said. “Especially when they become politically inconvenient.
“Eric Schneiderman was a stalwart, political ally of the left. But he’s out of the picture now. So, move on, quickly move on, and it’s back to vilifying Trump and any woman who supports his agenda.”
There are, literally, too many women to name who fit under the heading of “disposable” when it comes to Democrat politicians treating them badly. The women serially abused by Bill Clinton, then targeted by Hillary Clinton to preserve her husband’s political career leap to mind.
Then there are the millions of women whose pregnancies are ended — and whose children’s body parts are sold — so Planned Parenthood executives can buy themselves fancy sports cars.
It’s an undeniable reality that for Democrat politicians, women’s lives matter only as much as they need them to keep voting Democrat to keep the party in power. And as Ingraham pointed out, when women become “politically inconvenient,” they become utterly disposable.
Ingraham’s conclusion was speaking for millions of Americans, men as well as women, who’ve been watching this act for decades now, and remain amazed that it continues to work on otherwise intelligent human beings who happen to be female.
“Are any of you fed up with this rank hypocrisy?” Ingraham asked. “Me too.”
When millions of liberal American women start saying the same, we might be getting somewhere.
