Awesome: Col. Martha McSally, woman warrior, shreds ‘War on Women’ myth

Martha McSally, who is running for Congress in Arizona’s 2nd District, is sick and tired of the Left pushing its ridiculous and utterly false claims of a GOP war on women. A retired U.S. Air Force colonel who was also the first woman to fly in combat and to command an Air Force fighter squadron, McSally has seen first-hand what real oppression of women looks like. And in a campaign speech, she absolutely decimated the Left’s “War on Women” myth:

Amazing. Conservatives were blown away by her eloquent throttling of liberal lies:

Absolutely. Thank you, Col. McSally, for your dedicated service to this country and to women. We salute you.

    Shameful. I’d never vote for this female. First female to fly in combat? But, but.. Geraldine Ferraro promised me we’d NEVER put our women in combat!
    Typical progressive agenda. Keep pushing insanity for decades until the laughably unthinkable becomes “common sense”. Oh, and lie about your agenda.

    Take a long gander at this strong, independent, courageous and intelligent conservative woman, liberals.

    There is none among you who can hold a light to this proud woman and as you liberals continue to deceive and oppress minorities and women, the stronger among us will defeat you and expose you for the frauds you truly are.

    You on the left are either hustled by such ignorance or you’re just to lazy to actually care, and still so as you already know liberal men are paid 18% more then liberal women for the very same positions, even if the woman is more qualified then the man. And that’s in the Obama administration and hypocrite liberals in the Congress.

    Even when you already know the vast majority of abortions in the US are in black communities and the majority of its indefensible victims are young black females.

    Yes, the left has held the value of women and minorities in such high regard. Shameful, please learn history.

      Talk a walk in my shoes down Main St. in America, where women are blamed and told it is their fault when they are raped or assaulted http://www.rawstory.com/rs/201
      Where in 2012, we STILL have to fight for Equal Pay: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/
      Where a presidential nominee can use women as tokens who must be granted special hours so they can be home by 5 to have dinner ready and then its back to the binder:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
      Where this same candidate can blame single mothers for gun violence and no conservative bats an eye: http://www.motherjones.com/moj
      And so many more battles we women continue to fight. So while I appreciate McSally fighting for our country, I would appreciate her a lot more as a fellow women if she acknowledged that the fight is not over here at home.

            Yeah, it is. We have people who are so blind to the truth of whats happening. You are a prime example. In O’s first two years he had Democratic majorities in both houses and couldn’t get anything passed. He seldom even presented anything to congress. you can’t blame that on the Republicans. Why was the Equal Pay bill not passed when he had no obstructions? Read quality reporting and drop the goofball sites and you may end up voting for a man who will actually help get what you want.

            Are YOU 11 years old? By saying you’re links are from progressive sites, I’m inferring that the bias of those sites is left leaning. So yes, they are “less” true. Yes, the facts are in the posts, but spun to the left. Those sites are notorious for painting conservatives in a negative light to suit their narrative… just like the liberals believe “Faux News” is an arm of the Republican Party. Things aren’t always black and white. There are GREY areas. I understand you’re a 20-something woman from Illinois that is in love with Barack Obama. Great. But not everyone that disagrees with you’re opinion is an evil misogynistic Republican nutjob that wants women back in the kitchen. By painting everyone with such a broad brush, you make yourself look petty and small.

            Here’s a link for you, from a right-leaning site. It details FACTS from 1999 Illinois State Senate voting records, showing Obama voted “Present” on a bill that would protect rape victims. He was the ONLY senator that did not support the bill. http://bit.ly/VJLmxC

        Maybe she’ll help the women working for the Obama administration to finally have salary parity with their male peers during his last couple of months in office…

        • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

          She can only do that by convincing the Republican senators to sign the bill

          • redheadgrl

            Really? The women can’t ask their boss, Mr. Obama for a raise to give them equal pay with their male colleagues? I’m glad I never had to wait for congress to sign a bill for me to ask for and receive a raise.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            They could, but then as soon as he gives them the raise, Republicans will accuse him of paying them more just to pander to their “ladyparts”

          • Todd Hill

            And as such (by your reasoning) our commander-in-chief is so terrified of Republican criticism that he would rather deny women equal pay just so he’ll avoid a confrontation?

            I tend to agree with you regarding Obama’s timidity. Given that, no-one should be surprised that four of his subordinates were murdered in Benghazi under his watch…

          • redheadgrl

            It’s interesting how you keep referring to Republicans, when I believe a Democrat is their boss right now. He is actually practicing the wage disparity you speak of, but you want to blame Republicans? How very logical.

            Please provide an example of a Republican obstructing the Equal Pay Act? Lilly Ledbetter gives the right to sue beyond statute of limitations It has nothing to do with actual equal pay. That law was passed in 1963.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

          • redheadgrl

            Seeing as how the Equal Pay Act was passed in 1963, and Lilly Ledbetter does not “enforce equal pay”, please try again to give us examples of Republicans obstructing the law. As you know, the Equal Pay Act of 1963 enforces equal pay. People can even file EEOC suits based on the Equal Pay Act of 1963.

          • emjem24

            While I’m not very familiar with HR policies and issues, what you say rings a bell. In every workplace environment, at least in my last one, they posted a sign regarding this in the break room. I may be wrong, but what you’re saying is ringing a bell.

          • emjem24

            I’ll tell you what’s really happening in America… 5 million women out of work… 23 million people out of work. Women losing their homes.

            It’s you who is stuck in some freaking time warp. This isn’t the 60’s and 70’s anymore. You act like you’re precious and special because you’re tuned into some “perceived inequity.”

            I saw my mother conquer your kind in the 80’s. She didn’t have an attitude or a chip on her shoulder. As a computer operater she worked with some of the best engineers in the country. She never expected to be paid like her engineer colleagues because she did different work and often had a different schedule because she had two young children. When she lost her job due to a massive layoff, did she complain and whine about it? No! She got out there and asked for what she wanted. She never expected anything to be handed to her. Oh, and btw, she is the first person in her family to have a college degree.

            Stop whining and bitching about something you think you are owed. It is pretty obvious that not only do you have an attitude but you have a chip on your shoulder and think you shouldn’t have to work for things. Everything should be given to you based on how special and precious you think you are. You still have to prove yourself in this economy whether you are a man or woman.
            No wonder women in their 20’s can’t find jobs with attitudes like yours. You (and they) would be a liability to a prospective employer. I wouldn’t hire you either.

            The Senate majority is Democratic. You need to blame them for not signing the bill. But then again, if no one will sign the bill, maybe it has too many riders attached to it. Maybe it’s a bad bill for a good purpose. Yet, you don’t blame the controlling senate democrats…. you blame the minority Republican Senators.

          • irishgirl91

            Most bosses don’t have to be sued to give equal pay. Perhaps Obama doesn’t do anything he isn’t told he has to do. Most bosses have raises either built in, or you ask for them. But okay, sue ’em.

          • emjem24

            I’ve never asked for a raise… it’s called performance evaluations. If you’re evaluated positively in your position, you will usually be given a raise. In one of my jobs as an adminsitrative assistant, I got a positive review and even though it wasn’t in his budget (this was in 2007 right before the economy crashed) my boss gave me a raise. He saw something in me and what I brought to the company. Sometimes, that’s all it takes.

            did you watch the conventions? Both parties had women speakers. The difference is that the women in the republican party were in a higher level than the ones in the democratic convention. Republicans bring up female governors and female senators and Condi Rice. The democrats searched hard to find a college woman who wants free condoms and a mayor from New Mexico and the token Kennedy. You are screaming against the wrong wall.

          • http://www.chaosandcritters.com Ella Halligan

            Well this female conservative makes more than most of the men in my community. I went to school, became a nurse, took it upon myself to get even further education and credentials and am a Certified Pediatric Nurse Specialist, Neonatal Nurse and Certified Lactation Counselor. I have tripled what I make per hour because I have put in the work and sacrificed to get the education to do it. And I did it while homeschooling six of my seven children (the baby is younger than the time frame I did this in) and I even make 2-1/2 times what my husband makes.

            The much vaunted by the left Lily Ledbetter Act does NOTHING for women other than allow them to sue for inequalities for a longer time period. I understand that you somehow think it does something else… reading comprehension has never been strong among liberals.

            Try not whining, getting off your butt, and working to earn a top wage like I did… while working full time AND raising a family. Is it easy? No. Is it worth it? Oh, yes.When you quit blaming other people for your problems and start looking for solutions you will finally count as a grown-up.

          • emjem24

            Where are you getting this garbage? No man, especially a conservative man, has ever told me to, in your words, “get back in the kitchen.” If they had, I would’ve told them where to go. However, I’ve experienced women backstabbing me at work just to get ahead. You sound like one of those women.

            You have not only a warped view of Republicans and conservative men in particular but of women’s rights in general. You have a lot of grievances for one person. Your “I know better than you” attitude is what’s really killing women’s chances in the workplace.

      • redheadgrl

        I have never struggled for Equal Pay. I have actually earned more than men I have worked with, because I EARNED it.

        • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

          No, you earned more because you had the LUCK to working for a boss that respects women. Are you saying all women who are underpaid deserve to be so? Why do you hate your own gender so much?

          • redheadgrl

            Actually, it has nothing to do with “LUCK”, it has to do with knowing what your skills are worth, having the balls to ask for it, and then working your ass off to deserve it. Also, women make up over 50% of the workforce and an even higher percentage of HR departments. If the wage disparity were true, why would women be paying other women less than they are worth? Could it possibly be that they are not performing? Could it be linked to hours worked?

            If a woman feels she is underpaid, she should ask for a raise with her accomplishments highlighted as to why she deserves said raise. And then if she is denied the raise, she always has the ability to take her skills elsewhere. That is called the free market, which we still have here in the US.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            You are so misguided and blind. You have no idea what is going on in the workplace. There’s a reason the USA is ranked number 22 in gender equality.

          • emjem24

            What the hell are you talking about? I’m a 37-year-old former teacher and when I was teaching there were more women than men currently in education. Are men underpaid in the classroom because a majority of US teachers are female? What about nursing where more women than men work in that field. Are they underpaid?
            I freaking worked and deserved the pay that I got… I didn’t feel like I was underpaid especially since I didn’t work a 40 hour week like most women (probably 40+). I had a bigger problem with the union-controlled environment that took choices away from my kids and their parents when it came to education.
            I’ve been working since I was 16. I learned that the minute I felt like I was underpaid and the job was going nowhere that I moved on. I’m currently unemployed because so many people are afraid to hire in this shaky economy. That isn’t gender inequality it’s about the market and that there are less jobs for an overabundance of people in fields like education.

          • redheadgrl

            I think I figured it out emjem. Her boss is trying to do what is called “manage her out” so they don’t have to fire her and pay severance. If I were her boss, that’s what I would be doing. Can you imagine the hostile work environment Ari creates? Everything is someone else’s fault, blame men, blame the government, blame Republicans, blame whatever. Saves the company money in the long run and they get to replace her with someone more pleasant to work with.

          • emjem24

            Ugghhh…. I’ve worked with people like her. Women with big attitudes and even bigger opinions of themselves. I’ve seen women savage other women in the teaching profession for little things like disagreeing over a student’s improvement plan or…. politics. The people I often had the most issues with when I was working were other women. Women can make life hell for other women in the workplace.

            Agreed, @redheadgrl, Four of the last five companies I’ve worked for have women heading their HR departments. The last two companies I’ve interviewed with have female HR managers.

          • redheadgrl

            Right, Jim. She can’t understand that she is being lied to about the wage disparity. It does not exist in the majority of work environments. And if it does, unless the employee is union, it is the employee’s own fault for accepting pay less than their skills are worth or not having the courage to ask for a raise. Or take their skills somewhere else. I guess Ari doesn’t understand how the free market works where employees and their skills are a commodity.

            I understand in this economy many people are underemployed, or stuck in a non-optimal work environment because mobility is limited, but that is the weak economy, not gender discrimination.

            She also doesn’t factor in that some of us leave for extended periods because we choose to take time off for children. It is a choice that in 2012 we still have to defend to other women. It is also a choice that can put us back on the pay ladder.

            You need to grow the hell up and see the big picture but you can’t. It’s all about your needs. If your “needs” aren’t met then the world is against you. It’s sad because you’re not the first leftist woman I’ve heard such a spiel from. You won’t be the last. If you can’t kill your own baby, dictate to employers how “special” and “precious” you are, and try to control others than life is not worth living.

          “So what should we call women who are underpaid for the same or greater amount of work? ”

          Call them women who have a right in this country to look for employment ANYWHERE they want to. If women are dissatisfied with their jobs and pay, they have a RIGHT and a FREEDOM to choose other employment.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            No, they should have the right to be paid fair at the job they CHOSE in the first place! Running away solves nothing. You are a coward and a fool

          • redheadgrl

            But why would someone “CHOSE” to stay with a company they feel is unfair to women? Why wouldn’t she choose to perform that job where her contribution is valued and she is well-paid for her skill set?

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            chose does not equal choose moron

          • redheadgrl

            gotta go with the insults again, because you have no rational argument? Really? Choose is the whole point. Women have the right to CHOOSE who to work for. If you are not being paid for the skill level you have you can CHOOSE to go elsewhere. What ever happened to the “CHOICE argument” women make all the time? Does that only apply to abortions? Are you at such a level that lateral moves are not possible? If so, I would start laying blame at the current administration, not gender bias. “It’s the economy, stupid” said James Carville. If you believe you are not getting paid equivalent to your male counterparts (doing the exactly the SAME job with the exact SAME hours) then you are the “moron” for continuing to work for a company that does not value you as and employee (not a woman BTW, but an employee).

          • sparxie

            Life isn’t fair. But but a woman who takes matters in to her own hands and finds employment that she satisfied with is not foolish or cowardly and it’s not running away. It’s taking care of herself.

            Then there were the women professors who were just bitter because life didn’t “give” them what they were “owed.” I know their type very well having taken a couple of Women’s History classes.

        • http://www.chaosandcritters.com Ella Halligan

          We should call women who are underpaid for the same or greater amount of work not able or willing to recognize their worth and find commensurate pay elsewhere. Get fed up enough they will eventually do so… unless you’d rather sit and whine about being victims.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            You are not fighting for your “rights” or women’s rights in general. You are making life more difficult for the rest of us. You must be a thrill for an employer if you come across nearly as high maintenance as you seem on here.
            Word to the wise: employers do not like high maintenance employees, especially whiny, self-indulgent, high maintenance pains in the rear end that give grief to everbody who works with them. Not only are you a stuck up person but you don’t think what you’re doing is the least bit self-defeating or ill-intentioned.

      While you have your opinion, the point regarding the rape statement made by the candidate is that all children, even those conceived in rape are loved by God. I am sick and tired of the argument of abortion being it is the only choice for someone in a tragic situation. As an adoptee who has no knowledge of my background (I was abandoned as a newborn, and then adopted at the age of 2), and knowing the struggles my parents went through to have a family, I believe all life is precious and that there are other options besides killing one’s baby through abortion.

    What an impressive résumé Martha has, she is a Harvard graduate, first female fighter pilot and squadron commander to fight in combat. And while Sandra Fluke’s only claim to fame is her incessant whining about free contraception, Martha McSally was fighting against policy in Saudi Arabia which demanded that U.S. servicewomen must wear a full robe and headscarf while off base. There is a big difference between fighting for free stuff and fighting for freedom.

      • http://www.chaosandcritters.com Ella Halligan

        You have obviously never been OUTSIDE of the U.S. and have no idea what an amazing country we live in. I visited my cousins in Soviet occupied Eastern Europe when I was a young teenager and I know the difference between what freedom gets you and what government control gets you.

        I actually watched the debate instead of just cherry picking slanted arguments from left-wing moon-bat websites. That presidential nominee asked individuals (because women are actually individuals, did you know that? I understand that liberals think they are just a giant composite that votes with their “lady parts” but we actually are individuals) what their needs were and he responded by being flexible and meeting those needs. He didn’t tell that woman she had to go home and cook dinner. She told him that it was HER priority to be at home for what she felt was an important part of her family’s life.

        That presidential nominee also decried the fact that marriage has been so undervalued that children aren’t getting the love and support of both parents which can help them learn coping techniques beyond guns and violence to solve their problems. If young men don’t have a male figure to look up to at home they are more likely to find one in the gang members on the streets.

        Give me a break, Ari. This is the SECOND time you’ve posted this drivel. The biggest threat to women today is not being able to support themselves and their families. Unemployment is killing women and Obama isn’t helping any in that department. He has strangled this economy with his pose as a European socialist. He has brought about so much insecurity and uncertainty through Obamacare and regulating the hell out of companies and employers that NOBODY WANTS TO HIRE.
        You are doing a lot of disservice to women and you doing it out of your selfish need to make yourself a victim. Women can do and be anything they want now and playing the victim game is not a winning play for any woman, especially you.
