Yesterday, I came to the conclusion that the Mainstream Media must have decided that the "War on Women" was over because it carried nary a peep about the crude display in South Carolina by a union official who took a baseball bat to a pinata emblazoned with the visage of conservative, pro-life governor Nikki Haley, and proceeded to whack it several brutal times. Certainly not the blitzkrieg of condemnation and ridicule over the adoption of certain commonsense bills by the Virginia General Assembly last winter. If the media's not covering it, then it must not be happening. This is nothing new, nor are these non-condemned attacks on conservative, pro-life women even close to being the most vile. Arnold Ahlert from Frontpagemag.com documents the most recent attack as well as the long history of smears from the Left on women who support life (most notably, the 2009 Playboy article by leftist Guy Cimbalo on the 10 "hot" conservative women he'd like to rape). Then there was the Left's attack on Ann Romney and stay-at-home-moms earlier this spring. (Aren't women supposed to have a "choice"? So, why does the Left vilify these conservative women? The hypocritical Left. The angry Left.)
But the attack on Governor Haley wasn't the only one exposed yesterday. Something really disgusting was published about conservative, pro-life author, columnist and commentator S.E. Cupp in Larry Flint's Hustler. It was a photoshopped image of her that amounts to forced oral sex along with this description:
S.E. Cupp is a lovely young lady who read too much Ayn Rand in high school and ended up joining the dark side. Cupp, an author and media commentator who often shows up on Fox News programs, is undeniably cute. But her hotness is diminished when she espouses dumb ideas like defunding Planned Parenthood. Perhaps the method pictured here is Ms. Cupp’s suggestion for avoiding an unwanted pregnancy.
Ms. Cupp, who also has a program on Glenn Beck's GBTV, said on his radio show that as disturbed as she is by the horrific image, she could at least commend Flynt's honesty in admitting his hatred toward her is based on her effective opposition the Left's sacrament of abortion (see Madeleine Morgenstern at TheBlaze.com):
You have to wonder if they had done this to someone like Nancy Pelosi or Michelle Obama, would that stand, would no one make a stink about it? I have to think they would. ...
S.E. Cupp is lovely, she’s smart, she’s fine but she happens be a crazy conservative who is pro-life and wants to defund Planned Parenthood and for that she deserves the phallus in her mouth — that is essentially what they’re saying and I have to commend that as being incredibly honest. ...
They have uncomplicated this belief system that my political views, my being pro-life, my political views make this kind of behavior OK. It justifies it and I essentially deserve it. That is honesty and I have never seen it before.
Exactly. Leave it to the Left to leave it to Larry Flynt to broker its intentions honestly and to draw up the surrender on the War on Women.
