‘Women’s Movement’ Rejects Female Conservatives Running for Office

The current push to elect more women is just the pink flavor of the same old left-wing ideology.

Thousands of everyday women are sacrificing their comfortable lives to run for public office this election cycle, surging onto the political scene to save us from ourselves.

Time magazine published a lengthy piece last week diving into the details of this phenomenon. “Call it payback, call it a revolution, call it the Pink Wave,” author Charlotte Alter wrote, but whatever you call it, it’s coming soon to an elected office near you. “There is an unprecedented surge of first-time female candidates, overwhelmingly Democratic, running for offices big and small, from the U.S. Senate and state legislatures to local school boards.”

New York magazine covered this trend, too, with a piece called “10 Women Running for Office to Watch in 2018.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, nine are Democrats. And the tenth, the solitary Republican who made the cut, is in fact not much of a Republican at all. She describes herself as a pro-choice, pro-single-payer progressive and is running to challenge a sitting Republican congressman from the left.

It turns out, then, that our female rescuers are heroic not because they’re courageously working to advance their sincere desire for a better America, but because they’re Democratic women pushing a left-wing agenda. It’s the Women’s March on steroids, carrying divisive identity politics from the streets right into political office. For the purposes of this narrative, conservative women might as well not exist.
