Since feminism is a movement to advance the lives of women, you’d think feminists would celebrate the recent accomplishments of women like Kellyanne Conway and Betsy DeVos. Sadly, modern feminism is nothing more than a progressive echo-chamber.It seems “women’s rights” can be summed up by the assumed “right” to kill an unborn child. Nevermind the fact that half of American women are pro-life, they’re not “real” feminists.
Today, the hypocrisy was even more striking. When Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was harassed by a group of protesters during a visit to D.C. schools, you might think that feminists would stick up for a successful woman. Sadly, you’d be wrong. Instead, feminists jumped in to celebrate the protests.From Twitchy:
Protesters PHYSICALLY followed, blocked and taunted Betsy DeVos at a DC school today.
And these people think we should let them educate our children …And what was the reaction of “women’s rights” groups? Celebration:
Thankfully, not everyone was on board with the harassment. Some Twitter users were willing to call out the hypocrisy:
According to modern feminists, it’s not enough for a woman to hold one of the highest — and most coveted — positions in the country. No, in order to be an “advocate for women,” you also have to support the irrational group think of progressives. Being a successful woman is okay, so long as you don’t have an independent thought.
Sure doesn’t sound much like feminism to me.
