Now the GOP are sexist pigs

First, Representative Wasserman-Schultz; now Rep. Kilroy. Anyone see a pattern? Not just condemn the GOP as being ruled by Rush, as being composed of people who "do as they are told" (in Obama's words), as being stupid "tea-baggers," as being racist and anti-Semitic, as being murders on par with the Nazis (Congressman Grayson), terrorists (thanks to Janet Napolitano) but now they are the party of sexists. 

I thought the ascent of Barack Obama was supposed to bring about a new era of bipartisanship ("there is no red America, there is no blue America"-blah, blah, blah). The level of incivility has reached new lows - and that is not the fault of Republicans.

 

Barack Obama and George Soros's favorite think tank (The Center for American Progress) is part of the campaign to make Americans look at Republicans as being Neanderthals. Here, one of their offshoots (Think Progress) provides a forum for Congresswoman Kilroy to defame Republicans as sexists.

 

 

 

Yesterday, ThinkProgress interviewed Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (OH), one of the Democratic women who faced this treatment. Kilroy said unequivocally that the GOP's actions were "sexist" and it would be "nice" if they apologized. She pointed to recent GOP comments about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) - that it's time to "put her in her place" - and said that's exactly what Price and the other Republicans were doing on Saturday:

KILROY: [T]hree male members of Congress got up and started shouting down - trying to shout down the Democratic women. I thought it was loud, I thought it was rude, I thought it was disrespectful, and I thought it was sexist. [...]

Well, when you engage in loud, rude, and boorish behavior, my mother would have said they should apologize. I don't expect an apology, but that would be nice to have that. But you know, you're seeing this sexist behavior going on.

You heard recently comments - from the Republican side of the aisle, some of my Republican colleagues over there - saying Speaker Pelosi should be put in her place, and I think that's what they thought they were doing with the Democratic women. And it's simply outrageous to me to have women being treated like that on the floor of the House.
