Lefty feminists on Twitter spinning for Hilary Rosen, attacking Ann Romney


Evidently, not everyone got the “cut and run” memo regarding Hilary Rosen’s disparaging and highly insulting remarks. Of course, Marcotte could just be bitter, having been thrown under the bus by John Edwards herself. Except she keeps going, exposing what many on the Left actually believe about motherhood and mothers.

The notion that stay-at-home mothers work harder than women who mother AND hold down jobs is objectively false. Jesus.

Claiming that is the issue is objectively false, dear. Rosen said that Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.” Meaning, being a stay at home mom is not work and is irrelevant. Silly little moms know nothing about anything, you see. Economics and such are beyond their ken. But keep spinning. It’s working out really well for y’all.

@MTFIII Yep, all the people—including Obama people—falling all over to praise stay-at-home moms as the hardest worker that ever worked.

It's just oh-so-telling that women who don't work whose children are all out of the house still get the label "stay-at-home mom".

I don't know how SAHMs endure having so many people condescendingly tell them they have the most important job EVAH.

Just. Unbelievable. RT @ezradulis Keep digging. RT @markos: The youngest Romney "child" is 31.

Sneer quotes! He doesn’t use sneer quotes when raving about how twenty-six year olds are able to mooch off of their parents’ health insurance under Obamacare.

Marcotte and the Daily Kos’s Markos Moulitsas are joined by more of the usual suspects, including the always jackassy David Schuster.

I stand with @hilaryR. Her point last night was dead on. Here is her follow up. http://t.co/ClDYNzHo via @HuffingtonPost

Perhaps David would accept a lowly mom’s opinion on economics if she were incessantly demanding “free” birth control?

Jessica Valenti, author and writer at The Nation, weighs in.

Why is it controversial to say that incredibly rich, elite Ann Romney prolly doesnt understand the economic concerns of most American women?

— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) April 12, 2012

@jesseberney no doubt she should have known better re: the talking point, but the sentiment in context was totally right

— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) April 12, 2012

Valenti calls herself a feminist evangelist, which should tell you all you need to know. Of course, she is only a feminist if you are the right kind of woman. And of course she spins it around to class warfare. If gender warfare ain’t working, try class warfare!

RT @rtraister: A battle about how hard moms work waged on behalf of one outrageously wealthy individual leaves me pretty cold.

RT @davidfrum: @BuzzFeedBen No, here's the political risk to Mitt: at-home motherhood is increasingly a class marker, not a culture marker.

— Irin Carmon (@irin) April 12, 2012

It's still hard to be a stay-at-mansion mom, though. Kids are kids, you know?

— David Waldman (@KagroX) April 12, 2012

I definitely support stay-at-six-or-seven-homes moms.

— David Waldman (@KagroX) April 12, 2012

Those fancy pants rich folks! Except it’s not, no matter how many times one tries to throw in lame comments about 1 percenters.

@BuzzFeedBen yes I'm looking at the same — if I had to guess it would be hourglass shaped demo. Anecdotally it's a luxury good for 1-2%ers.

— Irin Carmon (@irin) April 12, 2012

Perhaps these out of touch Rosen defenders should talk to some real moms (and dads) once in a while. Start here.
