Local Dem Activist/Blogger Engages In Misogyny

Now I've not commented on the recent reports that Houston City Councilwoman Helena Brown is being investigated regarding the alteration of employee time cards in her office. I've stayed out for two reasons:

Of course, local liberal bloggers have not held back, and I would not expect them to do so -- after all, nobody can legitimately argue that the alleged offenses are not legitimate fodder for comment. But while I think the allegations against Brown are fair game, I would have hoped that the commentary would not degenerate into misogyny.

That was, of course, a vain hope.

And so I give you the comments found on a post at the local cesspool of progressive hatemongering that I have highlighted in the past.


I bring these comments to light here because of a few things that make them particularly notable.

Now I might not have bothered commented on the juvenile sexism of these comments were it not for another recent development. You see, the blogger who writes at BayAreaHatemonger has ascended to new heights in the Texas political firmament.

Senate District 11 delegates to the Democratic state convention met in a caucus last Friday afternoon and chose delegates to represent them in various capacities, including national convention delegates and Senate District Executive Committee (SDEC) representatives.

Those elected were:

* * *

SDEC male - John Cobarruvias

Yep -- the blogger over at BayAreaHatemonger is now a member of the top governing body of the Texas Democratic Party. I'm sure the female SDEC members serving with him will be pleased to know how highly he thinks of women and the sort of refined language he uses towards those women he disagrees with. I just wonder how such comments align with the platform that Texas Democrats adopted the same week that he got selected for this position.

To protect our rights and freedoms, Democrats support: ∙ action against all forms of discrimination and sexual harassment;

While I would never argue that John's speech should be limited in any way, I'm struck by the way in which the comments on the website are at odds with the spirit of a platform plank that I'm sure he would profess to support.

Then again, what's a little hypocrisy among liberals?
