Video: Rep. Connolly Rips GOP “Disrespect,” “Rampant” “Misogyny” Towards Planned Parenthood Head


    What Rep. Gerry Connolly said, times 1 million. Thank you Rep. Connolly for standing up to these right-wing bullies. For instance, as Rep. Connolly correctly points out: “The misogyny rampant here today tells us what is really going on here. This isn’t about some bogus video, the author of whom doesn’t have the courage to appear here, nor would the majority call him, because they know he’ll make a bad witness under oath. This is about a conservative philosophy that says we are constitutionalists…we believe in rugged individualism and personal liberty. With one big carve out though — there’s an asterisk in that assertion. And this is, except when it comes to women controlling their own bodies and making their own health decisions. You would never know that the constitution, according to the Supreme Court, guarantees a right of choice.”

      It is no wonder that knucklehead Chaffetz who was quizzing PP was refused a job as an agent for the SS the lying sack of crap. The next question would be why was he turned down? Since he is from Utah maybe we can guess.

    • True Blue

      to Connolly for exposing the truth about “constitutionalists with an asterisk.” He shows leadership without theatrics, respect by listening, and common sense instead of bullying.  

    • SrLiberal

      ..for standing up to the a$$hats.

      In his Sept. 30 column, in the Washington Post, Dana Milbank trashes Connolly by writing “She (Richards) left it to Democratic lawmakers to proclaim their (exaggerated) outrage. `The misogyny` wailed Rep. Gerald Connolly.”

      Milbank has a penchant for making half-hearted efforts at false equivalence between Democrats and Republicans. Milbank’s ridicule of Connolly’s outrage and of the very real problem of misogyny is sick.

      Maybe Milbank is burning out and needs a sabbatical.
