Newsweek's Michelle Goldberg: Ann Romney is kind of like Hitler and Stalin; Update: Faux apology issued

Obviously. That’s why she totally Godwinned herself on MSNBC. See, Ann Romney wrote a piece about Mother’s Day in which she praised mothers and said that one hat moms never take off is “the crown of motherhood.” Egads, the horror! Michelle Goldberg had this to say in response:

“I found that phrase ‘the crown of motherhood’ really kind of creepy, not just because of its, like, somewhat you know, I mean, it’s kind of usually really authoritarian societies that give out like ‘The Cross of Motherhood,’ that give awards for big families. You know, Stalin did it, Hitler did it.”

She went on to call it “insipid, condescending praise.”

But she obviously — obviously — did not compare her to Hitler or Stalin, all while comparing her to Hitler and Stalin. Nice doublespeak, Michelle. She also doesn’t know the meaning of condescending; praising mothers and acknowledging all that they do is not condescending. Unless, of course, you are someone who, like Hilary Rosen, believes that mothers are worthless.

The sane aren’t falling for it.!/AmericasRx/status/202037114588766209

Lefties of course agree with her because, you know, mothers aren’t real or serious women and all. They should just sit there and look purty.

Eww, women and their icky fancy wombs! Such a cult!

It is those who walk in lockstep with an anti-woman, Leftist agenda who cannot think independently.

Ms. Goldberg continued trying to deny that she made the comparison, while making the comparison again. Thinking is hard.

Michelle Goldberg is now bravely running away.

Exactly. New tone!

UPDATE: Michelle Goldberg issues a non-apology

    Stay off Twitter for a few days. That’s what all u idiots do – go in hiding for a few days or weeks and the come out with another mouth full of hate.Keep it coming, your making your case know—NOT

    Typical, and the morons who then “comfort” her while grotesquely using the term “teabag” actually believe they are smart? Wow. And if she is depressed, maybe that should tell her something. Happens when you are a snark with no common sense. What she is feeling is some deep subconciousness (for her) that is called “guilt” for attacking someone based on nothing and lying while doing so–over and over again. However, her liberal mind can’t comprehend those types of feelings, so she translates it to “depressed” and elevates herself to victim status.

    Earth to Ms. Goldberg: Don’t you understand the rules of PC?…. You’re not allowed to mention (even if NOT by comparison) Hitler or Stalin, even as our current administration aspires to emulate Nazi Fascism, and their “gestapo” bullies Romney campaign contributors!

    What’s the name of that magazine again? Smart people stopped reading those about the time they when desktop publishing. Something about the light grey printing on dark background boxes and pink printing in yellow boxes and green printing in pink boxes that put them all off, that was first clue to the vapidity of the content.

    You can only talk about crowns if they’re rainbow crowns on Obama. These people are so desperate they have to find politics in everything. Hopefully the voters know what’s going on and will hold all of these people accountable.

    I don’t know Eve Ensler from Adam’s wife but she looks like she’s trying to become inisible on the video.

  • submandave

    I just wonder how she responded to those who noted the authoritarian/communist bent to the campaign slogan “FORWARD”.

  • Brian Newman

    Please learn to speak woman stop using “um” and “like” “you know, I mean, like” that is so annoying especially when its coupled with you idiotic statements that mean little to nothing to somebody who has any intelligence.
