WASHINGTON – Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a congresswoman from Florida, came up with some shocking remarks about Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin this week.
During her speech at the Milwaukee Athletic Club, she said, “Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality.”
Using language more often associated with domestic abuse than politics to make her case, she went on to say, “What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch.”
The imagery she chose to describe her disagreement essentially equated Walker’s policies to physical abuse on women.
Morgan Brittany, former “Dallas” star and co-author of “What Women Really Want,” expressed her surprise:
“Scott Walker abusing women?! Is she out of her mind?” she said. “This is just another example of the lies regarding this phony ‘war on women.’ Is the Democrat party so desperate at this point that they are reaching this low?”
She said she was reminded of the claims from Democrats during a past presidential campaign that GOP candidate Mitt Romney was “killing” someone.
But it won’t work any longer, she said. Because people will see through.
Even the “lowest information voters at this point are going to see through this ridiculous joke and pathetic attempt to garner votes,” she said.
Gina Loudon, co-author of “What Women Really Want,” said of Wasserman Schultz.
“Democrats in D.C. view women as just another group of useful idiots.”
Her wording “proves beyond a doubt that she thinks the average American woman is stupid,” Loudon said. And it will drive woman away, she said.
“Keep it up, Debbie Wasserman Schulz,” she said.
Ann-Marie Murrell, the third co-author of “What Women Really Want,” said, “Instead of standing for strong, independent women, feminists (like Debbie) are acting like cavewomen waiting for cavemen to bonk them on the heads and drag them by the hair into the caves.”
Furthermore, she said, women like Schultz are “nothing more than dependent sexual beings waiting for big daddy government to give them all of their sexual freebies.”
Wisconsin Republican Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch was shocked by Wasserman Schultz, saying, “I think the remarks were absolutely hideous and the motive behind them was despicable.”
And Stephanie Wilson, who is Democratic Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke’s press secretary, implied that the Schulz’s statements crossed the line: “That’s not the type of language that Mary Burke would use, or has used, to point out the clear differences in this contest.”
Murrell is the original PolitiChick anchor and is the national director/editor-in-chief of PolitiChicks.tv, which was nominated at CPAC 2013 as the “People’s Choice Blogger of the Year.”
Loudon is the host of Smart Life with Dr. Gina on MoneyBizLife Network. She appears frequently on Fox News and Fox Business Networks and has appeared multiple times on Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart. She is a columnist for WND.
Brittany has been an actress for almost her entire life. She has worked with such legendary stars as Rosalind Russell, Natalie Wood, Lucille Ball, Bob Hope and Henry Fonda, to name a few. She has been directed by some of Hollywood’s most prestigious directors like Alfred Hitchcock, Mervyn LeRoy, John Schlessinger, and Mark Rydell.
She’s probably best known for her role as Katherine Wentworth, the sister of Pam Ewing on “Dallas.”
WND also reported when the chief of the nation’s largest public policy women’s group, with 500,000 participating members, said Wasserman Schultz was out of line.
“It’s a black eye for women leaders. It is a step back for women,” Penny Nance, the head of Concerned Women for America, told WND in a telephone interview just a day after Wasserman Schultz leveled her accusations.
Nance said a follow-up statement from Wasserman Schultz would be appropriate.
“Debbie Wasserman Schultz owes an apology to all victims of abuse. It is degrading and outrageous to make false personal accusations rather than discuss real and complicated issues of economic policy,” she said.
