The Left’s Sexual Terrorism

June 16, 2010 04:32

The Left has no qualms about using guerrilla tactics that would be anathema to any moral person. They “Alinsky” opponents through marginalizing, ridiculing, and dehumanizing. But for women, the Left’s arsenal sinks deeper and darker.

Like most of my young clients, Becky considers herself a progressive leftist. But unlike her peers, she is also angered by the Left. Becky’s main gripe is street harassment — and liberal men not having her back.

Becky consulted with a male friend and asked him why so many men of color accost her on the streets of Berkeley. She’s lived all over the world and hasn’t run into this much abuse elsewhere.

Her friend told her, “The brothers harass you to put you in your place, to knock you down from your high holy horse. It’s about power.”

Becky’s story reminded me of these chilling words from Eldridge Cleaver, the ’60s Black Panther who admitted to raping several white women to advance the revolution. He once wrote:

Rape was an insurrectionary act. It delighted me that I was defying and trampling upon the white man’s law, upon his system of values, and that I was defiling his women. … I felt I was getting revenge.

Observing the political scene today, it’s clear that the sexual menacing hasn’t stopped. Sarah Palin has been on the receiving end of a steady barrage of sexual degradation. Here’s a title of an article from the June 2010 Harper’s Magazine: “Is Sarah Palin Porn?”

According to the new book Game Change, Palin was devastated when she was attacked fast and furiously. Her torment was by design. As Cleaver revealed, the Left has been using and abusing women for years.

The “wilding” of Palin was meant not just to demean her, but to frighten her. Leftists wanted to expose the raw nerve of vulnerability lying deep inside every woman’s soul. It is the knowledge that anytime, anywhere, we can be raped.

The word “vulnerable” comes from the Latin vulnus, which means to wound. And this is exactly what the Left has been doing to conservative women like Palin — terrorizing and wounding them.

The radicals are experts at controlling women. They’ve been dominating their own women for decades. To say that the Left is a safe harbor for women is to misunderstand their roots.
