Greta Van Susteren -- Female Chauvinist Sow

This post is not about Wendy Davis. It is not about her views. This is about a woman who claims to be a feminist but who still insists that women receive all the protections of the patriarchal system she claims to oppose while being freed from the limits said system placed upon them.

In other words, it is about FoxNews Host Greta Van Susteren. And she's up in arms that there are men out there who dare to speak disrespectfully of the abortion-backing serial liar who is the presumptive Democrat nominee for governor of Texas.

This posting is not about Wendy Davis. It is not about her views. This is about a man who has pattern of being disrespectful to women:

We are a big nation with different viewpoints. We won’t always agree…but a strong debate is helpful when we disagree. Sometimes if you are smart in your debate, you persuade someone who otherwise had disagreed with you.

And then there are the creeps who take cheap shots because they are too ignorant and small to engage in an important discussion. The best they can do is make themselves look really bad. No one should pay any attention to them – they are not persuasive, they are noise, and in some instances boorish and obnoxious. I suspect this guy feels that he makes himself relevant or even important if he says or tweets like this. I just roll my eyes and wonder what is going on in his head!

Now I'll say it -- Erick and I have gotten into it a time or two. I've believed him to be flat out wrong at times and have said as much -- I guess that is why he banned me on Twitter some time ago, though I honestly have no idea why he did so. But when it comes to Wendy Davis, I think he has been more or less on target. But Greta does not.

I don’t care how much you disagree or agree with Texas’ Wendy Davis, you have to agree that this guy, Erick Erickson, is a real jerk and is really lousy at being a spokesperson for his views:


Calling her an “Abortion Barbie?”

Really? Does he think that makes him look smarter? It makes me think he is a jerk.

Well, Greta, Wendy Davis is known for one thing only -- briefly delaying a bill designed to put limits on the abortion of viable babies and apply the same standards to abortion clinics as are applied to other free-standing surgical facilities. Other than that, Wendy Davis has very few significant legislative accomplishments down here in Texas, and is known for being one of the most liberal members of the state senate. Given the attention paid her pink tennis shoes during her filibuster, is it any wonder that the one might compare her to another blonde known for her pink accessories? Of course, Greta doesn't get into the substance of the tweet in question -- one noting that Davis falsified her biography and succeeded in life after her deadbeat dad (Davis' claim, not mine) set up his 21 year old daughter with a big donor to his theater company who was in his mid thirties.

But let's set this aside -- because after all, this piece is not about Wendy Davis, it is about Greta.

And I say that because Greta then goes on to exploit one of Erick Erickson's children and paint him as a bad father.

Here are some more of his tweets:


I see he tweets about his daughter. When I read the above tweet I thought, I wonder how proud his daughter would be of him if she knew that he tweeted insults about women. It is one thing to disagree ..but he tweets insults.

Wow -- that takes a lot of class, Greta. Erick Erickson had the audacity to tweet about a major candidate for high office, and so that makes him a bad father. I'd ask what Greta thinks about Wendy Davis abandoning her daughters when being mom became a political liability, but I'm not sure if that Greta would recognize that my attack on her hypocrisy was not intended as an attack on Davis instead. Besides, Greta might insist that I was attacking a woman (and Greta does claim to be a woman) by exposing her double standard on personal attacks.

And here are more of his tweets about a woman, Wendy Davis:


Well come on -- Wendy Davis has claimed that she is tough enough to lead while being all things feminine. She has been caught lying to the people of Texas about the only thing she seemed to have going for her -- a compelling biography that has now been found to have the consistency of Swiss cheese. She's tried to sound tough and look like a delicate flower as she has worked to undo the damage of the unforced error she and her campaign have made. But according to Greta, it really isn't fair to use the sort of ridicule that would be directed at a male politician in a similar situation because, well, Wendy Davis is a woman and you are a jerk if you dare pick on a woman in precisely the same manner you would a man.

I'll skip Greta's reference to an earlier post in which Erickson was among a group criticized for noting the implications of social science research on working mothers and absent fathers. Suffice it to say that she didn't like what was said -- and probably thinks that the social scientists who have conducted these studies are jerks, too.

No, I'll just skip to the end of the piece, which shows the deepest hypocrisy of all.

One other thing…. don’t expect me to police everything that is said by everybody, but I will from time to time speak up (not always…I’m busy doing a lot of other things).

Translation -- "I'm going to criticize Erick Erickson for daring to treat a woman like a man, but I'm not going to comment on the disgusting attacks on Wendy Davis' opponent, Greg Abbott, that have become common among Davis supporters and staffers who think it is just great to mock a man in a wheelchair over that disability. After all Abbott doesn't have a uterus."

Hypocrisy, thy name is Greta. Sexism, too.
