Written before Joe Biden accepted the Democrat nomination

Notwithstanding that the Civil War is hard to top, there’s always room in a democracy for alternative views:

One hundred years later to the day, any sober and dispassionate mind must conclude that giving ladies the right to vote was the single greatest catastrophe in the history of our storied republic.”

Crisis magazine editor Michael Warren Davis.

 
Related: Described aptly by Newt Gingrich as “the most openly anti-Catholic bigot to be on a national ticket in modern times,” it comes as no surprise that extremist hate-monger Kamala Harris has a new grievance sister in Australia’s own self-crowned gender heroine, Julia Gillard.

    My late mom didn’t like leftists. And voted accordingly.
    Many women today seem to be swayed by leftists.

    “One hundred years later to the day, any sober and dispassionate mind must conclude that giving ladies the right to vote was the single greatest catastrophe in the history of our storied republic.”

    True. Feelings don’t count for anything when dealing with reality. Women to a very large percentage vote on a feelings based agenda.

    The current handling of COVID-19 and it’s disastrous consequences are the result of feelings based politics and therefore feelings based policy.

    The strategy cannot acknowledge that some people will die, therefore the plan is centred on no one dying, this ignorance of reality means that many more will die than would result from an “uncaring and monstrous” reality based plan.

    FACT CHECK: OVERWHELMINGLY CORRECT

    The inevitable collapse of civilisation proceeds unabated and will continue until we stop telling our little girls they can be anything they want to be. we must herd women out of the workforce and back into motherhood where they belong

  4. Scott Osmond

    Reality doesn’t care about feelings. The experiment has run it’s corse. The results are in. Feelings based politics and policy are both disgenic and discivilizational. Maybe our ancistors new something we chose to forget or ignore.

    So who thinks 2 income/child minding or childless / urban bugman model of living is something to aspire to?

    And if you do how severely educated you have been to believe this.

  6. Rebel with cause

    My wife votes the way I instruct her.

    Women got the vote because most men had tired of the burden of responsibility. Women entered the workforce because men had grown tired of the burden of providing.

    Read Romans and it is clear that Paul holds Adam, not Eve, responsible for the downfall. As he makes clear in Timothy, Eve was deceived by the serpent and can redeem herself through childbirth.

    Most of the girly men of today would soil themselves at the thought of taking responsibility of being the sole provider.

    Unpaywalled article from teh Comrades at TIME, from which the Oz has derived its piece.

    Interesting that Julia continues to ply the trope that it was all thems nasty sexist mans wot did her in. Not her own incompetence and her (and Labor’s) incessant politicising and mismanagement of practically every issue, scandal and crisis that crossed her path.

    After all, the ‘misogyny’ speech that made such a great meme for the SJWs and genderistas at the timewas all down to the actual misogyny, impropriety and misconduct of the Speaker of the House.l, and Gillard’s hyper-aggressive (hypocritical) defence of the same. Nothing to do with Tony Abbott. We can blame our own media Swamp for that craven piece of manipulation and misattribution. Notnyat t gelped her cause in the end…

    It’s almost like dealing with a more nasal-sounding version of POTUS #44’s protestations and defences of ‘muh legacy.’

  8. K2

    My sister (in her 60s) liked Turnbull as PM because he looked presidential and statesman-like. Keating also.

    Those in between; Howard, Rudd, Abbott failed that test in her eyes, so no good. Gillard being unmarried/closet dyke was no good.

  9. Roger

    Women entered the workforce because men had grown tired of the burden of providing.

    Two world wars – particularly the second – also had something to do with it.

  10. Ed Case

    Women had always been in the workforce, but a man was looked down on was looked down if his wife worked, apart from in a family business.
    The propaganda campaign for women to go to work started in the 70s, it was aimed at married women, though this wasn’t explicitly stated.

  11. Judge Dredd

    Unfortunately women on average vote for leftist/socialist issues as they trigger the emotional response of empathy in them and speak to their desire to have everyone on the same level.
    It is without doubt that by giving women the vote the west has slid into degeneracy and wickedness.
    Clearly a world where women did not vote would stave off the wolves of civilizations decline for longer, although like every construction of man, eventually it will be doomed to fail as every civilization before it has.
    Therefore, a world built to a City Of God is required for any lasting civilization on earth, not to a City of man (apologies to St Augustine ).

  12. Clam Chowdah

    Boo! 👻 😃

    Eeeeek!

  13. I’d love to see a world run entirely by women, or just a country, and by that I mean see it from afar. I believe a smaller version of that transpired not long ago where some business was entirely populated by women and it didn’t fare well. Nothing against women by any means, but they ain’t perfect, like some are wont to believe.

  14. Rabbi Putin

    Anyone who stated this truth back when it first appeared on the alt-blogs about 3-4 years ago copped a lot of crap for it. It’s amazing how much more popular this sentiment has become, that women being given the vote was a tremendous mistake.

    But the evidence is all there: all the female politicians that Australia has ever produced have been rubbish. They are self-serving, entitled and utterly scornful of the rights and well-being of Australian men in a way that no male politician would get away with expressing about women. Look at the scowling smugness of that suffragette in the photo, this woman would have been a joyless scold who absolutely no one would want to be around and yet modern women are instructed (by other women) to idolize them. Then as now, the feminists take the centuries of hard work by western men for granted and seek to tear it down just for the fleeting joys of chaos and emotional release. But women cannot build it back up again. They are terrible at civic planning, at building consensus and at conceiving of policies oriented toward self-responsibility rather than mothering and nannying.

  15. Dave of Reedy Creek, Qld

    The only day in my life so far that I was embarrassed to be an Australian born and bred, was on Julia Gillard’s misogyny speech day. Never been so embarrassed for our nation as well. In the mean time the old saying “birds of a feather flock together” gains new momentum in the form of the Harris and Gillard combo.

  16. PB

    Women tend to vote for protection, guidance and security, so any political party that crafts the paradigm within which women will seek these three things will likely win. This is how the Dems are currently structuring their strategy. Create chaos using your arms-length provocateurs, frame and define the discussion and the terms with your media assets, and sit back and wait for the security-seeking women’s vote to come to you.

    Correctomundo, Karens! 😾

  18. “One hundred years later to the day, any sober and dispassionate mind must conclude that giving ladies the right to vote was the single greatest catastrophe in the history of our storied republic.”

    Iislam is right about women.
    …sadly.

    noun
    dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.
    “she felt she was struggling against thinly disguised misogyny”

    Reading the above definition, Women can also be misogynists . All you have to do is to dislike or hold contempt for or be prejudiced against women. Women fight a lot in all female environments, according to my wife. She does not like working in all female environments.

  20. Clam Chowdah

    You guys are being dicks.

    The real story is they shouldn’t give the vote to people who don’t pay tax or don’t pay more in taxes than they receive in benefits. That is the only way to make people vote rationally.

  21. Fred

    All public sector workers should be banned from voting.

  22. Entropy

    I would like to think my daughters have been brought up to exercise their right to vote intelligently and be wary of emotional impulses.

    As for Gillard. It was her incompetence that led to her losing her job. That she seeks to blame others for her gross inadequacy for the job just proves it.

  23. Don

    One of my great grandfathers was a Labor man. When asked by him for whom she voted, my great grandmother would pretend she “had come over funny” and accidentally voted communist (in Qld). She was a Tory but kept it quiet for a long time. Let’s hope many Trump supporters are once again doing the same.

  24. Tel

    The real problem started when allowing people who don’t own any land to vote.

    Point being that anyone who works moderately, doesn’t spendthrift and sticks at it for a while can own land … and by the time they get that far in life (regardless of gender) the land owner has sufficient judgement to figure out the consequences of candidate policies. Those people who own nothing, and vote at age 18 will generally vote for a quick handout at taxpayers expense, and ignore long term consequences.

    I tended to vote for maximum disruption when I was young, and I suppose I still do, although PHON are both the most disruptive and most principled party in Aus right now … which is a sad reflection on the mainstream parties IMHO. Most voters couldn’t even tell you half the policies they are voting for, and the parties “just change it all” when they get elected.

  25. Perfidious Albino

    Kamala and Julia. I suspect neither ever saw a greasy pole they weren’t prepared to climb to get ahead. For all their shouted mysoginy and feminism, were they really any different to Weinstein’s starlets? A trail of homewrecked wives to despair, “me too!”…

  26. Struth

    Not just voting unfortunately.
    Being in charge of human resources and through diversity picks and such woman have too much say in things generally.
    Evident with the ongoing hatred of me by notafan.
    She is a classic case to look at.
    Not a dumb woman but like most can’t keep emotion out of it enough to think clearly when it counts.
    The undeniable fact is that if women were kept where they want to be, in safety and security provided by the men in their lives and out of the halls of power there would be no lock down and we would still be free.

  27. Clam Chowdah

    1. Women are biologically programmed to conform.
    2. Women get the Vote.
    3. All Media, particularly Television, is directed at Women.
    That’s the paradox of modern times, yeah, women are in the Halls Of Power, we’re living in
    Women’s World [for now], yet women are just tokens and symbols, they increasingly have less power than they ever had.

    So angry and impotent.

    The current handling of COVID-19 and it’s disastrous consequences are the result of feelings based politics and therefore feelings based policy.

    I thought exactly that when i saw the story, yesterday, that ‘Countries run by women are doing better during COVID’. Its a bit like saying ‘less people die in wars run by women’, but forgetting to mention that is only true because they surrender their countries day one (so no – one gets hurt), then live in poverty and subjugation and sexual slavery because their countries have been taken over by the other tribes warriors. Chicks (girly men included) cant run countries because they are genetically unable to see people get hurt in order to win (for the same reason, they cant play football – the few that even try are butch lesbians anyway). Giving women the vote is the same as letting chicks run countries. It is ALWAYS followed by the introduction of the welfare state, emasculation of the men and the decline and fall of the empire.

  32. flyingduk

    Trump in to 2.20 on Sportsbet btw, after peaking at 2.70 a few weeks ago. Nowhere near the 5:1 i got last time, but worth taking for an 80 day investment.

  33. Theo

    Women who have neither married nor had children and raised them successfully to adulthood are highly unlikely to be good politicians. Thatcher was good because she didn’t deny her feminine side and still took pride in cooking dinner for her family even whilst MP and later PM

  34. flyingduk

    Women are biologically programmed to conform

    Legacy of our hunter gather pasts, women are biologically programmed to stay home and raise small vulnerable (‘Vunribble’ in ABC speak) children. This entails ‘redistributing’ the food their man brought home so all the kids get enough to eat (aka a ‘fair share’), and rushing to comfort small crying children, rather than letting them die learning that falls out of trees hurt (which persists now in the nanny state). When the boy comes of age, he transitions to the care of the male, who takes him hunting, and has the real world job of learning to catch real life food (aka work for a living). It is his fathers job to say, on day one, irrespective of ‘feeeelings’ … holy crap son, you suck at spear throwing, you need to learn quicksmart or my genes die, not ‘good try… heres a participation trophy.

    “Anti-Catholic bigot” is the same thing as calling someone an “anti-Communist bigot.”
    It’s a compliment.
    At least it should be anyone actually right of center.

  36. Roger W

    Before we get too carried away, don’t forget Maggie Thatcher, Golda Meir, Indira Gandhi. and I’m sure there are others. You might or might not like their politics but they weren’t whimpy girlie types emphasizing “feelings”.
    On the other hand, look at any female boss or politician, or indeed anyone else who got ahead because of quotas or tokenism, and you see problems. Not that today’s “professional” male politicians are much better!
    I suspect it is the system we have allowed to develop for promotion (there was a lot to be said, in hindsight, for the old seniority system) that is the problem. Trouble is, they do love to promote their own kind.

    But dear trolly-kins, have we not repeatedly established that you are not right of centre? Trying to dictate who should be in what little boxes made out of Petey-tackey (Little boxes, all the same) again, eh IamAFascistTrappedInALibertarian’sBody?

  38. Ed Case

    ***Before we get too carried away, don’t forget Maggie Thatcher, Golda Meir, Indira Gandhi.***
    Thatcher’s old dad was Mayor of Finchley and she married a wealthy Oilman, so it’s not like she came from nothing.
    Gandhi’s father was Nehru, founder of the Congress Party, and she married a wealthy Parsee, see above.
    Meir’s was probably a similar story.

  39. Wyndham Dix

    The die is cast.

    At every turn, Western women are in the ascendant, if not already dominant – in education, law, medicine, accounting, banking, retail, media, government, defence. Unlike men they have supplanted by political means, they will not yield their money-driven gains. Cupidity on stilts.

    This is of course unsustainable. Demography will determine the outcome.

    Refusal of women, principally but not exclusively in Western nations, to breed in sufficient numbers to replace populations let alone increase them, will progressively result in destruction of those nations as we have for centuries known them.

    One wonders what the Author who inspired the writing of Isaiah 3:12, Genesis 1:28, 3:16, Isaiah 3:16, 44:24, 45:18 and John 3:16 makes of all of this.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, He also inspired the late Pete Seeger’s words “Oh! when will they ever learn?” in his song “Where have all the flowers gone?”

    For those who think the world over-populated, the entire 7.5 billion alive today would fit comfortably in an inhabitable area the size of the State of Queensland (circa 1.7 million sq. km.) at a density of Greater London (circa 5,200 per sq. km). Contrast London’s density with Manila’s 41,500 per sq. km.

  40. Scott Osmond

    The thing is is that those civilizations who have kids will replace those who don’t. This with mass immigration means that sooner or later things will change. Not necessarily for the better. I suspect that women of the 2200s will curse women of the 2000s and their choices.

  41. Oh my my my.
    This is by far my most favoured thread ever on the Cat.

    Glad most everyone finally agrees with me (or is finally prepared to admit openly).

    You can’t change 100’s of 1000’s of years of evolution with a couple of decades of affirmative action.
    Women, as with minors, are predisposed to redistribution.
    They are also not hard wired to be in charge. Being in charge means decisive action and risk taking.

    So I don’t see it as just about the right to vote. The more damaging aspect has been putting women in positions of power and authority. They can vote all they like, it’s just better if there wasn’t an option to vote for a woman.
    The best position of power for a woman has always been and will always be, as the wife behind the man in charge. They tend to be a moderating force in that role.

    Bluebottle was a member of the East Finchley Boy Scouts, and no doubt Mad Dan Eccles and Mini Bannister were Finchley residents (separately, of course) 🙂
