Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Someone emailed me a link to this spectacularly idiotic screed at the terribly misnamed American Thinker website. It’s written by someone who calls herself Robin of Berkeley and it fits a common style among the right, the “I used to be a liberal and then I discovered the truth” pattern. There’s a template for it in Microsoft Word, I imagine. Some of this stuff is really funny.

What finally woke me up were the utterances of “bitch,” “witch,” and “monster” toward Hillary Clinton and her supporters early last year. I was shocked into reality: the trash-talk wasn’t coming from conservatives, but from male and female liberals.


Did she somehow manage to miss the two decades of anti-Hillary hatred from the right? Did she somehow not notice that conservatives made her out to be as evil as one can imagine, including a murderer? She’s just warming up. Here comes the serious stupid:

I finally beheld what my eyes had refused to see: that leftists are Mr. and Ms. Misogyny. Neither the males nor the females care a whit about women.

Women are continually sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. If under radical Islam women are enshrouded and stoned and beheaded, so be it.

My other epiphanies: those ponytailed guys were marching for abortion rights not because they cherished women’s reproductive freedom, but to keep women available for free and easy sex.

And the eagerness for women to make good money? If women work hard, leftist men don’t have to.

That’s so idiotic it doesn’t even merit a response, just a little head shaking.
