Another Democratic president wannabe's war on women and the Democratic women who don't care about it

Forget supposed president wannabe Donald Trump (presumed R for the moment)'s icky comments about women in general and Megyn Kelly in particular as indicative of Republican attitude towards women.  It is actions that really count.  And once again, the Democrats are the prime action offenders in their "war on women," especially in the important gender pay gap battle.  

Steven Hayward of Powerline blog reminds us of this, citing a report in the Washington Free Beacon from over a year ago that proud socialist presidential aspirant Bernie Sanders has the worst record of equal pay in Congress

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), who caucuses with the Democrats, was the worst of the gender pay gap offenders in the previous analysis. He remains near the bottom of the list, with the average female salary $21,730 lower than the average salary received by men in his office.  

$21,730!  A nearly $22,000 salary increase could lift a woman out of poverty.  But then she wouldn't be dependent on the free stuff the Democrats promise their helpless poverty stricken female voters.  

And apparently the Democratic war on women is systemic.

Women were also paid less than men at the Democratic National Committee, in Obama’s White House, and on his 2012 presidential campaign.

Yeah, I know; I was surprised, too.

Read the whole thing and then remind those females enthusiastically waving their Bernie signs at his rallies about this.  Of course, as long as the #BlackLivesMatterExceptBlackOnBlackKilling crowd doesn't interrupt their latest sexist king taking over from their once presumptive queen, female Democrats don't really care.  Because #DemocraticWomen'sStaffers'SalariesDon'tMatter.  

And women proved this Monday night in Los Angeles as over 27,500 people, male and female, according to a Bernie Sanders press release cheered Sanders as he walked up a catwalk onto the stage and proclaimed, in a hoarse shout, that “this country belongs to all of us and not a handful of billionaires.  We need a grassroots political revolution.”

And who introduced this political revolutionary but none other than Sarah Silverman?  “I give you, if we’re all very smart and a little bit lucky, the next president of the United States,” she said.  The crowd roared its approval.

And who is Sarah Silverman?  According to the sexist terminology in the Sanders press release, she is a "comedienne and actress."  Hmm.  The preferred gender-neutral words are comedian and actor.

But that's fine, because Sarah Silverman was last heard from this past April playing pathetic victim, lying about suffering from a mythical pay gap, according to Salon.  She was not comedienneing nor actressing well. 

Recently, Sarah Silverman came under fire for a video she released discussing her experiences with the wage gap, which included an anecdote about once getting paid less money for a set at the New York Comedy Club than her friend Todd Barry, despite having identical slots.

Former club owner Al Martin, meanwhile, lashed back, saying that Silverman got paid less not because she was a woman, but because she wasn’t booked to perform that night.

“I did not pay you less cause of gender …..I paid you less because Todd Barry was booked and you weren’t,” wrote Martin on the Facebook page for the Broadway Comedy Club, which he currently owns. “It was a GUEST SPOT, so I gave you some car fare, which actually is more than almost any club would have given for a GUEST Spot…Funny how in your attempt to become a super hero with a noble cause, you forgot that little fact.”

Whoops!  Caught!  But she is a comedienne and an actress, so hahaha!  Just a little joke among friends.  Except it wasn't.  So she weaseled her way out of it in the liberal way with a non-apology apology to Martin via Salon.  And naturally it was all about poor little Sarah and her noble cause narrative so it was OK.  

Oh goodness.  All I can say is I remember that story exactly how I said it. I know that Todd called the club earlier in the day to let them know I was in town if they wanted me to do a set.  They put me up for a 15 min spot just after Todd’s 15 min spot. I didn’t expect to get paid, that’s not why I was there, but when I got off stage Al, the sweet club owner, paid me 10 bucks and I signed the payment sheet. I was like, oh, nice.  I inferred from that that this was a paid spot not a guest spot.  Either way I would have been fine.  Then when Todd pointed out that he received 60 dollars for the same spot I went back inside and asked Al why Todd got sixty dollars and I got ten. That’s when he certainly could have said “Because it was a guest spot, Sarah.  I was just being super nice and gave you ten dollars for cab money.” But instead, (and I will always remember this exactly how he said it because it was unbelievably hilarious) he said, “Oh- did you want a $60 spot?”

My regret is that I mentioned Al by name- it should have been a nameless, faceless anecdote and he has always been lovely to me.

This is also HARDLY an example of the wage gap and can only do that very true reality a terrible disservice if I were trying to make it one.  When I was interviewed by Levo, they asked me “Do you remember a time you were paid less for the same job” and this story, being just that, popped into my head.   To Al, I truly am sorry to bring you into this as you employ women and pay them the same as the men I’m sure.  To the maniacs who want to use this as a chit against women’s issues, I ask that you please don’t.  Because that would be super shitty. Feel free to aim your vitriol at me but leave this issue of working women out of it, K?

The end

No, Bernie and Sarah, it isn't K, it isn't The end.  It is The beginning of a shady, lying campaign where what you want to remember is what fits the preconceived narrative, and that is exactly how you will say it.
