Republican leadership facing internal revolt from GOP female lawmakers as party turns back into a boys’ club: report

From everything that I’ve read these Republican women aren’t concerned about actually helping women or advancing women’s causes that all women should be concerned with regardless of party affiliation. Instead the Republican women speaking out about this issue are merely disagreeing with these white male supremacist over campaign tactics and ways to lure/con women into voting for more Republicans. That’s it. Another example of how it’s only about winning at all costs for Republicans. Forget about the common good.

The headline took the words right out of my mouth! 🙂

This really was an Illuminating documentary. Fortunately I got to see it in theater in Bethesda, Maryland, when it came out. I would highly recommended in any case but especially right now I think it would be extremely valuable given the political context of the fraudulent Supreme Court hearings we’re witnessing these days.

I was somewhat politically aware during this episode in American history but watching the documentary was so much more enlightening and I came away from it with both an extremely high amount of respect for Anita Hill and an extremely high amount of disgust and disappointment in our white-male-supremacist political leadership (including the now beloved-by-association Uncle Joe Biden) that continues to infect our politics. It’s time for us to finally rid our American body of this virus don’t you think?
