The Misogyny of the Left

Has anyone noticed that the left and I include the media are all outraged when anyone attacks the lefty woman. But then all po-faced when they all bay for the blood of a woman who doesn’t seem to fit the correct thinking ideology-wise.

I point this out because of the rank hypocrisy being shown in recent attacks on Judith Collins, Melissa Lee, Paula Bennett and Christine Rankin.

If we take Christine Rankin, there has been much made of her previous marriages but not one squeak about the rest of the Commission and their previous marriages. Not one squeak from Labour when they appointed them, not one squeak from Peter Dunne when the Commission was set up with divorcees on the Commission. The rank hypocrisy stinks.

What can it be then about Christine Rankin that so appalls the left? Is it because she is a supporter of National? Possibly. Is it because she is successful in all by her marriages? Possibly. Or is it because she cuts through the bullshit and doublespeak? Possibly. It is more likely to be a combination of all of those plus a healthy does of leftist misogyny. Just what exactly has she done to earn so much opprobrium from the left.

Some are starting to notice. Ali Ikram has a thoughful piece on the issue. Fairfacts Media at No Minister has what just may be his best post ever, noting the misgoyny of the left.

Likewise the attacks on Melissa Lee. What we are seeing here is constant attacks against successful, good looking women who aren’t in the mould of ugly by the leftwing. Their view of the world seems to want women to be in sack-cloth and ashes and to only think their way.

Meanwhile they continue the meme that the Auckland Supe City transitional authority will be filled with “Dead Old White men”. Well what is David Shearer if he isn’t grey, dead, and old and a man compared with young, vibrant, female Melissa Lee.
