We’ve all learned by now that liberal “tolerance” only allows for tolerance of those who agree with them.Just look at the treatment gay conservatives like Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative feminists like Christina Hoff Sommers, or black republicans like Allen West receive. If identity can’t be exploited for political gain, liberals have no interest in it.
We on the right like to beat up on our side, and admittedly I’ve found the word “RINO” to be overused. But at least we don’t have the absurd purity test that liberals do.
As Matt Vespa of Townhall reports, apparently you need to be a liberal to be a “real” woman.

At a New York campaign rally for Hillary Clinton Monday, Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards pretty much said that pro-life women aren’t really women, nor do they support women’s rights. It wasn’t that specific, as she said, “A woman voting for Ted Cruz is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.”
Dana Loesch’s response to the Colonel Sanders comment is too good not to share:
KFC treats chickens better than Planned Parenthood treats babies.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 18, 2016
So, as a woman, you must vote for a pro-abortion candidate? And if you don’t, you’re stupid, misinformed, or worse, not really supportive of American women. It’s typical liberal bullying. Conform to my principles because if you don’t–your whole existence doesn’t make sense. I can’t convince you, so you must be just wrong.
Forty percent of all women are pro-life, and that figure increases among women who have children (huge surprise there). Additionally, there are even examples of women being more pro-life than men. When Texas was trying to get a 20 week abortion ban passed, a larger percentage of woman than men supported the act.
The irony of the KFC statement from someone who literally sells buckets of baby parts is astounding. If there’s a “War on Women” like the left believes, they’ve identified the wrong enemy combatants.
