The behavior of our local radical left women was abusive and uncalled for. The next Woman’s Rally and March should be lessons in common decency and civility towards other women.
Interrupting an invited female speaker with displays of yelling and holding up disparaging signs is wrong. The women before me that broke the barriers in male-dominated professions would be embarrassed to stand with women that would act in this manner towards other women.
For these radical left women attending the rally, it is clearly a case of agree with our ideology or your accomplishments as a woman do not count. My grandmother, a newspaper editor, and mother, a pilot, would have shunned these women for their inappropriate behavior.
These radical women mocked Rep.
Robin Smith while speaking, interrupting her. They carried painted signs of hatred towards President Trump and state Rep. Robin Smith.
The Woman’s Rally and March will be the joke of Chattanooga going forward, and these behaviors will be noted by women.
I want to be clear on three points.
Celebrating women’s accomplishments does not have a political party.
Secondly, the radical left Democrats do not hold title to the gender of woman. The mentality of the radical left is agree with us or be subject to attacks.
Finally, Rep. Robin Smith is highly accomplished and educated.
I believe Robin Smith is the first female state representative of her district. She is a registered nurse, and has life experience and medical education to support her views on abortion. She also advanced to run the state GOP. I am certain that the political world in those days was a man thing.
Women that broke the professional ceilings, including Rep. Patsy Hazelwood, in her career at AT&T, had grit and talent. Patsy Hazelwood navigated a professional structure at a time when gender was a career detriment.
To attempt to humiliate Rep. Robin Smith while speaking only made the radical left women look mindless and petty. Civility dictates that we listen to the views of others, whether we agree or not. It is called exchanging ideas, a fundamental and basic process in justice, government, education, and so on.
The good news is Robin Smith is an unflappable, solid Republican. Her conduct was professional, as we would expect.
Go back home radical left, mean girls, and try to accomplish what Robin Smith has.
When people are intentionally disrupting speakers, they should be removed by security. Freedom of speech does not extend to impeding a planned event, or interrupting invited speakers.
Radical left, mean girls, y’all are an embarrassment to yourselves and to Chattanooga.
