An Open Letter To Democratic Women - And Response (4)

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Last night, I watched along with millions of Americans the State of the Union Address. I watched President Trump talk about the increase in jobs, the plans for a brighter future for our children, how we can eradicate AIDS, and how we can help end childhood cancer.

During the middle of his speech, President Trump began to discuss other issues. Issues that compel me. As President Trump talked about the thousands of girls being sold into modern day slavery, taken from their families only to live in a lifetime of torture, and being abused on a daily basis, I watched as you sat with your hands folded in your laps. Your faces were stone cold. As he began to talk about the thousands of babies being ripped from their mothers’ wombs, never even given a chance, I watched as you sat wriggling in your seats with smirks on your faces. Smirks? A smirk when we are talking about murdering a human being.

So I ask you, Democratic Women, who are you advocating for? Is it for the girls who go to sleep at night hoping their lives are different the next morning, praying they can wake up and not have to do horrible acts against their own will? Is it for the millions of female babies that are butchered in what is supposed to be the safest place for a baby, her mother’s womb?

You made sure everyone had eyes on you last night in your white suits. You wanted the attention. You had an opportunity to stand up for these women we lose on a daily basis. It could have been your stage last night. It could have been the moment we as Americans stand strong, in solidarity against these tragedies. Instead, you chose to have an agenda for yourself, not for the women of America. Please know that we, the women of America, are stronger than you. We will stand up for the unborn. We will stand up for the lost girls. Today, we take the stage.

Sincerely,

Shawnte Bembry

I, too, was a bit shocked at the women in white.  I'll admit I really didn't think about their party but rather their reaction (or lack thereof) of things that meant something to me, also a woman. 

What scares me more than their deer in the headlights look, the fact that someone could have that much power over them that they would follow orders regardless of their personal opinion. 

Of course it's entirely possible all of those women on that side of the room believe it's ok to murder a child on the delivery table.  We will most likely hear a lot more about their "opinion" when they run again because it should be obvious that the silent majority have now found their voice.

Thank you again for a superior post.

Ms. Bembry,

Your letter is fantastic, and captures exactly what the majority of American women think. 

Watching President Trump speak, the pack of mean girls, dressed in white, acted like they were in high school. I could not believe what I witnessed. This is our House of Representatives, called Congress.  These women and their dress alike day was ridiculous.  We did this in high school to oppose the no jeans policy, but we were 16 years old. These are grown and alleged to be educated women.  I could not believe the childish behavior in their facial objections to President Trump’s words, smirks.

It is rather concerning seeing what represents us in majority in Congress. Respect and dignity was absent from these women

Honestly, the women in white do not represent American women. Yet, they do.

Well, we should all feel comforted in knowing those women in white didn't shout out "You lie!" Or cover their mouths while snickering like high school 'girlie men' the way Republican members did during President Obama SOTU speeches. 

Those women in white, representing women of the suffrage movement era, set in quiet dissent which is actually a sign of respect when especially considering Republicans prior behavior, because they recognize hypocrisy and the exploitation of an issue when they see it.

The post by Ms. Bembry was excellent and hit the nail squarely on the head.  The response by Brenda Washington, as usual, missed it entirely.
