This is not a rant against women. It is a rant against certain women, prominent GOP shrews, a gaggle of ill-tempered, nagging and argumentative politicians whose sole purpose seems to be to promote the Donald Trump Irrational Theory of MAGA.
(Note to readers: The adjectives used above are the clinical definition of a shrew. Blame Funk and Wagnall’s, not me.)
Shrew 1: Nikki Haley, former governor of South Carolina and ambassador to the U.N. and, at one time, a possible future presidential contender.
Haley, before she opted to be a kiss-hiney suck-up to Trump, stood alone on the distaff side of rational Republican politicians. She was dynamic, engaging, charming, a politician/chameleon that fit the mold of one bound for future greatness within her party.
As an astute minority politician, Haley, whose full name is Nimrata “Nikki” Randhawa Haley, the GOP offered her a place in history. That place is assured, now that her name will always be associated with the only president to be impeached twice.
Now, Haley’s stock has tumbled, as she has to hold the female-side of the GOP banner with two other Trumpettes.
Shrew 2: introducing the Queen of Snark; Majorie Taylor Green. Green, who represents Georgia’s 14th District, is a slash-and-burn politician, a born-again Trumpuppet who is interested in only two things, how many times can she be in the headlines or on TV and how much hell she has to raise to be interviewed on Fox News or NewsMax.
Green is so annoying and disliked on The Hill that she was removed from committees by House leaders.
Greene has promoted numerous far-right, white supremacist, and antisemitic conspiracy theories including the white genocide conspiracy theory, anything in QAnon sites, and Pizzagate, as well as other disproven conspiracy theories such as false mass shootings, the Clinton body count, and those related to 9/11.
In other words, she’s a nut.
Shrew 3: Lauren Opal Boebert is a businesswoman and gun-rights activist, now serving as the U.S. Representative for Colorado’s 3rd congressional district.
When deciding to run for Congress, she thought it might be good if she had a high school diploma, so she got her GED.
Boebert owns Shooters Grill, a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado, where staff members are encouraged to openly carry firearms.
If that does not tell you all you need to know, Boebert was a leader in trying to get Antifa, a non-organization railing against fascism, as a terrorist organization.
A QAnon advocate, Boebert, to quote an opinion piece in a national newspaper, is “caught in a cacophony of crazy.”
These are the leaders of the women’s’ movement in the Republican Party.
Too bad. So sad.
