CHICAGO - If you missed the kerfuffle concerning former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's controversial comments about women at the Republican National Committee's winter meeting last week, don't depend on legacy media to provide the other side of the story. Here's what Huckabee actually said:
"Women I know are outraged that the Democrats think that women are nothing more than helpless and hopeless creatures whose only goal in life is to have the government provide for them birth control medication. Women I know are smart, educated, intelligent, capable of doing anything that anyone else can do.
Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women. That’s not a war on them. It’s a war for them. And if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it. Let us take that discussion all across America, because women are far more than Democrats have played them to be. And women across America need to stand up and say, “Enough of that nonsense.”
"Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards claims Republicans want to take us back to the 1950s.
If that’s so, Democrats want to take us back to the 1800s, when women were diagnosed with hysteria if their libidos weren’t satisfied, when a woman’s unquenched sexual appetite was the cause of all her problems.
No, what women want from the government is what men want – safe neighborhoods, good schools, low unemployment, national security, and a strong economy."
