Spread this (no pun intended) to every woman you know — especially women who are not paying attention to politics. They should be.
In keeping with the Republican Party’s agenda to dictate* what women can and cannot do with their bodies, GOP Governor and Misogynistic Pig Bob McDonnell (R-Teabagger) is poised to sign State-Mandated, Non-Consensual, Non-Medically Necessary Vaginal Probing into law.
For men who think this doesn’t concern them, this will give the Commonwealth of Virginia the right to do this to your wife, girlfriend, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece — even your mother if she’s young enough:
In a vile and disgusting example of the misogynistic extremism that has taken over the Republican Party, Governor McDonnell is at the top of the short list to be chosen as the GOP Vice Presidential Candidate.
Republican Presidential Frontrunner Rick Santorum, a man who has forced his children to kiss and coddle a dead fetus, has publicly stated on more than one occasion that he believes that contraception poses a danger the U.S. and States should have the right to outlaw contraception.
That’s right, Ladies — criminal prosecution/jail-time for using Birth Control.
“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. [Sex] is supposed to be within marriage.”
~Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum, CaffeinatedThoughts.com, October 18, 2011
Yesterday, Foster Friess, Santorum’s surrogate and campaign financier to the tune of $500,000, went on national TV to say this to NBC Correspondent Andrea Mitchell**:
“This contraceptive thing, my gosh, it’s so inexpensive. Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn’t that costly.”
~ Rick Santorum Campaign Financier Foster Friess, MSNBC, February 16, 2012
In keeping with Republican Extreme Hypocrisy®,GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum believes YOUR method of Birth Control should be to “keep your knees closed”, while the images above specify just exactly how wide you’ll have to spread your legs so that Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell can earn his conservative bona fides and appeal to the American Taliban (aka Christian Conservatives) enough to become the Republican Vice Presidential Candidate.
* That’s dictate, as in The Republican Party wants to turn our Participatory Democracy into an Authoritarian Dictatorship.
** Yes, Andrea, these are the Republicans you are shilling for with your penchant for false-equivalency bullshit, in the name of “fair and balanced”.
