Gun-Grabbers Go Full Femme-a-Gogue in Colorado

By Michelle Malkin




http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | COLORADO SPRINGS — Out: The boy who cried wolf. In: The girl who cried birth control. Desperate Democrats are imposing false-alarm feminist politics on a high-stakes recall election in Colorado this month. It's a golden opportunity for independent-minded women to reject empty femme-a-goguery and tear up the Sandra Fluke card.

On September 10, Colorado Springs and Pueblo will decide whether to boot two top state Democrats (state Senate Majority Leader John Morse and state Sen. Angela Giron) over their support for radical gun- and ammo-control measures spearheaded by outside special interests. Left-wing billionaires Michael Bloomberg of New York City and Eli Broad of Detroit have poured $700,000 between them into defending the endangered Colorado Democrats.

A whiff of elitist progressive panic is polluting the Rocky Mountain air. Polls show "moderate" Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who was against anti-Second Amendment gesture theater before he was for it, losing favor here. The libs' gun-control laws (including more intrusive background checks and ammo mag limits) have driven manufacturing jobs away, made it more difficult for law-abiding gun-owners to conduct business, and done little to increase public safety. No wonder Hickenlooper has barely lifted one of his wavering, wet fingers in the wind to assist the recall targets.



Extremist liberal groups are filling the vacuum. They're trotting out ridiculous fear-mongers to demonize Morse's GOP challenger Bernie Herpin and Giron's challenger George Rivera as misogynistic zealots hell-bent on confiscating every condom, morning-after pill and key to an abortion clinic in the Pikes Peak region. Exhale. Consider the newly formed 527 political action group "We Can Do Better, Colorado," which put out ominous mailers and TV ads created by a Chicago-based firm. The spots are narrated by an angst-filled female who asks:

"What would you call someone who supports a ban on common forms of birth control? Interferes with our personal decisions?" ... "Someone who supports a plan that could even allow police to investigate miscarriages and question the grieving woman like a criminal?"

The narrator frets that if birth control warriors don't rise up against the Neanderthals, they might soon be calling Herpin and Rivera "state senators." Gasp! The Republican challengers appear in the ads as shadowy threats in black-and-white photos. All that's missing are the wire hangers.

Locals here also report that their college-age children are receiving push calls zeroing in on GOP opposition to taxpayer-subsidized birth control, abortion and the so-called Personhood amendment — none of which sparked the recall in the first place and are not at issue in the special elections.

The reality? Both Herpin and Rivera are pro-life, mainstream Republicans focused on increasing economic opportunity and government accountability. Their recall campaigns have zeroed in on the control freak Democrats' underhanded subversion of transparency and the deliberative process during their gun-control hearings.

The true misogynists are Morse, Giron and their Bloomberg-bolstered gang who shut out Colorado citizens, disparaged Second Amendment-supporting rape victims and female concealed-carry permit holders, and cut off the testimony of countless sheriffs who opposed the sovereignty-infringing gun-control measures. Women voters here and across the country should not forget that these Nanny Staters told grandmothers, mothers and daughters last spring that they don't need handguns to defend themselves, because "rape whistles," "call boxes" and "ballpoint pens" are sufficient.

The gun-grabbing femme-a-gogues think they can do what they did to Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck in 2010: hammer the GOP into submission and defeat over their phony "reproductive rights" agenda. Enough. "Our bodies, our choice" does not just apply to abortion and birth control. It applies to every woman's right to defend herself as she sees fit.

The Dems' presumptuous paternalism aims to keep independent women both physically and intellectually disarmed. I say: Think and act with your lady smarts, not your lady parts.
