Liberals are all for respecting women, so long as they agree with them. However, if a woman dares to challenge the liberal group-think; they are viciously attacked. Just ask the pro-life activists who tried to participate in the “Women’s March” what happens when you deviate from the accepted narrative.
Typically, Hollywood can be counted on to march in lockstep with progressive narratives. It’s impossible to count how many times some celebrity gets in front of the country and offers their “brave opinion.” Of course, there’s nothing brave about speaking your mind in a room full of people who agree with you. What takes real courage is dissent.
Sadly, dissenting opinions are few and far between from celebrities. However, when a New York Times reporter viciously slandered First Lady Melania Trump, model Emily Ratajkowski was having none of it.
From Fox News:
Emily Ratajkowski spoke up in defense of First Lady Melania Trump after the model claimed a New York Times reporter called Trump a “hooker.”“Sat next to a journalist from the NYT last night who told me ‘Melania is a hooker,'” the model tweeted. The Bernie Sanders supporter added it doesn’t matter what your politics are, “it crucial to call this out for what it is: slut shaming. I don’t care about her nudes or sexual history and no one should.”
The 25-year-old continued to say “gender specific attacks are disgusting sexist bulls–t.”
Despite the fact that Ratajkowski was a Bernie Sanders supporter, she showed that she still retains the ability to articulate an original thought. While most liberal elites in Hollywood and the media practice astounding hypocrisy, Ratajkowski’s defense of the first lady is a refreshing case of intellectual consistency.
In the liberal echo-chamber, you’re not allowed to “fat shame” an overweight model, but calling a woman a “hooker” because she’s married to someone you disagree with is perfectly okay. The double standard is appalling. Despite the fact that Ratajkowski is not an ally of conservative causes, she deserves credit for standing against the hypocrisy.
