With President Donald Trump’s approval rising in recent polls, and with Democrat prospects for the November elections sinking, it is obvious why the Leftist media is suddenly trying to polarize America’s largest bloc of voters – women.
Last Sunday, ABC’s “This Week” mobilized a hate fest condemning the President and Chief of Staff General John Kelly for not acting instantly to fire White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter, accused of domestic violence by two former wives.
Despite the current scandal, one of Porter’s ex-wives days ago told the U.K. Daily Mail: “I don’t want to be married to him….But I definitely want him in the White House and the position he is in. I think his integrity and ability to do his job is impeccable.”
Porter – a Harvard graduate, Rhodes Scholar, and former Mormon missionary – worked for Senators Rob Portman (Ohio) and Mike Lee (Utah), and as Chief of Staff for Senator Orrin Hatch (Utah) before coming to the Trump White House. Only near Trump did lightning strike him.
“This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos, former hatchet man for Democratic President Bill Clinton, defended his man accused of violent rape. But that was a different time, before the rise of today’s hyper-partisan media and #MeToo post-feminist radicalism, heard on ABC’s Sunday show.
Some radicals have gone beyond seeking equality for men and women and instead now, like “gender racists,” want to “overthrow the patriarchy,” to create a new society dominated by women. And some, like former Chief Strategist in the Trump White House Steve Bannon, think this will happen.
“The anti-patriarchy movement is going to undo ten thousand years of recorded history….Women are gonna take charge of society,” Bannon is quoted as saying by Bloomberg journalist Joshua Green.
“And they couldn’t juxtapose a better villain than Trump. He is the patriarch….It’s even more powerful than populism. It’s deeper. It’s primal. It’s elemental….It’ll never be the same going forward.”
America is already being “un-man-ed,” as Craig R. Smith and I explain in our book The Great Withdrawal. Roughly one in five working-age males is not working. Eight years ago women passed men in total American employment; held 51.4 percent of managerial and professional jobs; and were earning 60 percent of college bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
“In a stark reversal,” wrote Hanna Rosin, author of The End of Men: And The Rise of Women, “men are now more likely than women to hold only a high-school diploma.” And as managers, women may have more of the skills a post-industrial enterprise needs: social intelligence, open communication, the ability to sit still and focus.
More than forty percent of women are unmarried. More than forty percent are the primary breadwinners in their families, and millions are coupled to Uncle Sam, who brings home the bacon in homes where Government Assumes the Role of Spouse (GARS, as bureaucrats call it).
Brawn in past ages was the key to battlefield and factory success, but good-paying factory jobs have greatly diminished in our post-industrial age, and push-button high tech fights our wars. Millions of men now earn less than women. At the same time, male sperm count has fallen by 60 percent, and America’s fertility rate is too low to replenish our population. A majority of white women voted for Donald Trump in 2016, but single women dependent on government as their provider are inclined to vote for Democrats.
The masculinity behind both patriarchy and patriotism is being replaced by infantilized pajama-boy Leftists. But would matriarchy be better? Or would it become merely a “patriarchal” hierarchy run by women, an artifact that lasts only a brief interval before the Artificial Intelligence robots replace humankind, male and female?
