There are 4 comments on POV: Will 2020 Finally Be the Year of the Woman?

  1. Having lived through a few “years of the woman” (as you have): The real “Year of the Woman” will be the year we no longer wonder about this because gender won’t make a difference in who has power, resources, opportunities, safety …..

  2. Nancy Pelosi and Elizabeth Warren are exhibits of opportunism and they epitomize the hypocrisy that characterizes the Democratic Party along with their loyal cabal of Democratic and rhino Republicans and goose-stepping Leftist sycophants. Their incendiary rhetoric against opposing political thought (e.g., President Trump) is aberrant and psycho/sociopathic
    that is consistent with Antisocial Personality Disorder
    (ASPD) in the definitive Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).

    Mses. Pelosi and Warren are not “role models” as referred to in this POV and their rhetoric and actions
    are antithetical and antipathetic to values and morays the majority of American women embrace and ascribe to.

    This minority element in the realm of American political thought are delusional /sic/ and their unequivocal support of Black Lives Matter, for example, and their “dog whistle” of “systemic racism” will mobilize the electorate en masse this November, and barring successful massive voter fraud (e.g., harvesting mail-in ballots), President Trump will win by a landslide.

    Meses. Pelosi, Warren and Harris are actually the evil witches of 2020 and they most certainly do not representative traditional American women. The preposition is sick and frightening, particularly if the Democrats win the White House. It will likely trigger a civil/race guerrilla war, and today’s violence, rioting and looting in Democratic controlled cities will pale to the calamity that will envelop the Union.

    1. Elizabeth Warren is the biggest liar in politics and somehow no one on the left side has addressed her problem. Nancy is also a very bad role model if her taking responsibility is “falling for the set up”, how on Earth is she a role model? Radical lefts have to wake up!

      1. Calling someone names or pointing to wrongs that are hard to verify but stick, are old ways of faulty arguments. I could do the same–attack you!
        Rather, I suggest that both Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi speak strongly for me and my beliefs and against your beliefs (it seems). So please stick to the subject not to who expresss a different opinion. Now–would you resort to attacking me personally? Be my guest. I say: You may be the most wonderful person on God’s earth. However, your way of argument is poor and weak!
