Capper did a great job of pointing out the deep rooted Misogyny that runs in the Wisconsin Republican party.
“She’s innocuous, she has no record to beat him with and now that she’s had her makeover, she’s attractive, she’s a woman.” Kramer said on Jan. 31. “But maybe it doesn’t matter who she is. People already know what they think of Walker: love or hate.”
Again, this is nothing surprising. Kramer has a well-known history of making misogynistic and sexist remarks.
Nor is this the first time that the right wing has gone after Burke for her appearance.
Which proves the theory that it is not WHAT Kramer did but WHO he did it to, that set Robin Vos off. Some inappropriate comments aimed at his mistress perhaps? The above comments, by supposed republican "leadership" did not draw even a sneer amongst the party.
That is because this is who they are. They see nothing wrong whatsoever with judging a woman strictly on her looks, its not like they consider women peers. Besides if these guys aren't qualified to judge a woman's appearance, who is?
However, I will let their actions speak for themselves. They do not feel that women are equals so if you feel the same way, then feel free to continue voting republican.
What I wanted to point out, was the last throw away line of Bice's article.
One GOP lawmaker, Rep. Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) has come forward to say he witnessed the incidents
Has anyone asked Rep. Steineke if he alerted the authorities? Is it not also against the law to witness a crime and NOT report it? If it was bad enough to get him to unanimously voted out of his role as party leader then shouldn't the authorities be informed of exactly what happened and then let the proper authorities decide if it was a criminal act? If it was NOT a criminal act, why would he lose his position?
So many unanswered republican questions as we head into election season!
