Assault and Flattery The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women ¸ DOWNLOAD Author Katie Pavlich – healthymealss.us
She makes a lot of really good points in this book When women don t toe the liberal party line they are vilified Women often choose careers that pay less The big bad insurance companies aren t charging women money because they can Women live longer than men and over time reuire care long term Although this book makes all sort of valid points I doubt anyone not already leaning conservative will read this book Pavlich has written a compilation of rants that ou might enjoy if ou already share her views if ou picked up this book to consider the other side of women s issues in politics ou aren t going to learn much I dropped this book after jumping around a big through her slog of hate mongering on par with that which she condemns on the left The first segment convinced me not that the left mistreats women but that the media certainly does not new information Pavlich could contend that the left controls much of the media but to prove that original and interesting point she should have done some actual research and constructed an argument rather than listing mean headlines The only chapter I enjoyed was her diatribe listing mean headlines The only chapter I enjoyed was her diatribe Bill Clinton As I Bill Clinton as I feel he s a pretty sleezy dude but this was somewhere I already had an strong opinion Nowhere did she provide logical evidence of her stances but instead relied on the readers to have come to conclusions themselves and provided material for them There is a fairly widespread belief on the part of many conservative thinkers and opinion givers as on the left the two groups do not have complete overlap that liberal and progressive politicians can be just as obtuse insulting and derogatory when dealing with women as the usual suspects on the right can be Townhall news editor Katie Pavlich makes that case at some length in her summer 2014 release Assault and Flattery She argues that the political machinery of the Democratic party is not automatically pro woman and that in fact some liberal politicians and opinion givers support legislation that can be harmful to them Such positions and legislation go unexamined Pavlich says because many women s issue groups have supported the Democratic party for so long they have become too invested with it to see the problemPavlich s takeoff point for her book was probably the War on Women theme used effectively against many Republican politicians in the 2012 election She was somewhat overtaken by events though when that same strategy fizzled in the 2014 midterm elections and the GOP retook the Senate and strengthened its lead in the House of Representatives She notes that comedian Bill Cosby a longtime supporter of President Barack Obama was freuently given a pass on allegations of his assaults on women because of that connection Obviously recent events have changed that state of affairs Cosby is the target of a platoon of accusations and is having to struggle to repair his image Assault and Flattery probably could have been a good long form magazine piece As a book it references many events that aren t all that far in the past and so its central premise will probably not age well The problem may still exist people who want power will probably always be willing to make deals with their respective devils no matter what side of the political divide they are on Women s issue groups will support some men who do
not treat women well because when in office they support legislation the treat women well because when in office they support legislation the want supported just the same as Wall Street trading firms will support politicians who blast them with rhetoric as long as their voting records tip in the right. New York Times bestselling author and FOX News contributor Katie Pavlich exposes the truth behind the real war on women the one being waged by Democrats Assault and Flattery goes beyond the Democratic Party’s rhetoric and exposes its shocking and sustained assault on American women that has lasted for generations And in some cases the word “assault” is uite literal Katie Pavlich thinks the Democrats have run the conversation for too Direction But Pavlich s examples will fade out of the public eye and carry much less weight than they do nowPavlich s subject matter and pedigree may echo that of senior conservative women writers such as Michelle Malkin or Ann Coulter and she speaks from a definite point of view she is a Fox News contributor and National Review Washington Fellow after all But Assault and Flattery lacks the bombast and high octane vitriol those authors place on their pages Her uestions about the issues she s discussing read like genuine inuiry than verbal one upsmanship and even if she overwrites her argument than once her demonstrably irenic tone makes exploring her viewpoint a lot easier whether a reader agrees with it or notOriginal available here You need to read it There is language but she is uoting what was actually said Great book Katie lays it all out for everyone to see the hypocrisy This is one of those books I wish I could make people read Started reading itAlthough conservatives are many times horrible misogynistsliberals are not immune from hyper partisan misogyny and the book essentially does thatThe book basically
lists anti woman commentsremarksarticles etc by liberals against conservative womenwhich is appalling anti woman commentsremarksarticles etc by liberals against conservative womenwhich is appalling horribleI hope no woman ever has to go through horrors of misogyny and sex based discriminationAlso women s movements need to give up double standards and try as vigorously to protect conservative women from liberal sexist attacks as much as they rightfully do for liberal women under attackHer narrative
