Ana Marie Cox Doesn't Understand Conservative Women

I have never met Ana Marie Cox and have never had any communication with her. She could be the nicest woman in the world to her family and friends, but she is a master deceiver, manipulator, dissembler, and temporizer.


Here is the title of the article I am analyzing today and where you can find it:

“The GOP doesn't just have a woman problem, it doesn't understand women.” Ana Marie Cox. 9 March 2014.


Ana Marie Cox writes about the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). She admits in her article that she is a feminist and shows her bias in several ways against conservative women.


She quotes Carly Fiorina speaking at CPAC: “'I am a proud pro-life woman. … I believe science is proving us right everyday!'” Sonograms, OB/GYNs, and medical literature offer scientific proof that babies have heartbeats at six weeks and enter viability at 20 weeks. But Cox's sarcastic response is, “(Hey, don't knock junk science until you've tried it, right?)” Denying a baby is viable at any stage of pregnancy is characteristic of Hard-Core Feminism. (Guideline 17a: Selective research.)


Cox includes a cornerstone element of feminism, “decades of discrimination against them [women]”. (Guideline 3a: Omni-”Discrimination”.) Socialist feminist policies have been discriminating in favor of white women for the past several decades. It's called affirmative action. Feminists want equal outcomes, the only question for them is how much more government help should white women get to make it happen.


“And the women at CPAC? They're so invested in being ladies, they don't even talk like women.” Cox gets it exactly wrong. The women at CPAC talk like full-grown adults compared to feminists like Cox who act more like children constantly whining about everything.


She writes, “They can't admit that they're denied anything, so they can't ask anything.” But Fiorina's net wealth is $80 million and she was CEO of Hewlett-Packard. She isn't being denied anything. Not all women have that much money, but not all men have that much money, either.


Cox is a corn-fed girl out of Nebraska and she isn't poor. She is another rich, white feminist nagging the rest of us about how awful women like her have it.


(Guideline 18a: Feminists complain about everything.) Note how Cox takes the approach that the CPAC “ladies” are being “denied” things and complains about “discrimination”. In other articles, she complains about the top 1%, which includes Fiorina.


Cox mocks successful, honest, virtuous women. She wants them to act like feminists and complain about everything.


She writes, “Of course, there were several female speakers the GOP probably wouldn't want on that [CPAC presidential straw] poll, stunt candidates and pranksters whose presence would undermine the ginger steps toward seriousness that CPAC has lately taken. Michele Bachmann. Ann Coulter. Sarah Palin.”


“The women the GOP has elevated to the marquee are the ones they are least likely to have or want on a ticket.”


Cox is wrong. Palin was the Republican nominee for vice-president in 2008 and is wildly popular among center right Americans. Bachmann ran for president and won the 2011 Iowa straw poll in Ames.


Cox has a history of catty articles attacking Palin and Bachmann. (Guideline 24a: Feminists mistreat women.)
