Sontany: "You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women."

NASHVILLE, TN, 6/14/2010, Tennessee Republican Party – Today it was reported that Democrat State Rep. Janis Baird Sontany made questionable comments regarding female Republican state legislators. According to the blog that posted the comments:
“Rep. Janis Baird Sontany (D-53) said of female Republican state legislators, ‘You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote!’"
“Rep. Sontany’s comments are very strange and definitely inappropriate,” said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney. “Questioning the other side’s voting record is one thing, but using this verbiage to get your point across is petty and insulting.”
According to the blog, the comments were made at an event honoring Democrat Congressman Jim Cooper which was attended by a number of Democrat legislators and candidates. The blog continued:
"Sontany joined her fellow Davidson County Democrats for a legislative breakfast to honor U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper at the United Steelworkers building. Other state legislators at the breakfast were Sen. Douglas Henry (21) and Rep. Gary Moore (50) plus several candidates for legislative office.”
“It is a bit disturbing that Rep. Sontany would speak this way about her colleagues just because she felt she was in the presence of ‘friends’,” continued Devaney. “I would hope that Congressman Cooper and the other Democrats in attendance would denounce these disrespectful remarks.”
This remark by Sontany says volumes about how Democrats think about people. They do not see them as individuals who can think for themselves; people are blocks of voters who vote their identity. Liberals go ballistic when a Black leader such as J. C. Watts or Colin Powell or Clarence Thomas or Michael Steele emerges as a Republican. All Blacks are supposed to stay on the liberal plantation. If they are conservatives they have betrayed their race according to the liberal mindset.
Likewise, all women are supposed to toe the feminist line and be for expanded government and advocate for things such as equal gender representation on boards and committees, mandated family leave, and government wage laws that ensure men earn no more than women despite what the market may determine to be the value of various jobs. Women are supposed to be for bigger and bigger government because, after all, it is "for the children." Women are also supposed to be for a defeatist foreign policy and non-violence, because women are by nature peacemakers.
And, lord knows they are all supposed to be for "a woman's right to choose." To a liberal, feminism is not about advancing the statue and expanding opportunities for women but is about advancing the liberal big-government agenda. So when a strong conservative women comes along, she must be a man in drag according to the liberal mindset.
Liberals hated Margret Thatcher and they detest Sarah Palin. Liberal women feel conservative women are betraying their gender. Liberals don't admire strong women, only liberal women. Liberals are especially hurt and offended this year by the emergence of a new class of strong female Republican candidates. Republican women are kicking butt and liberal women don't like it. Women are supposed to stay in the liberal kitchen of identity politics.
Janis Sontany needs to apologize for her crude and insulting remarks. A strong Republican women need to run against Sontany next time she is up for reelection.
