It’s sad to see the Telegraph offer a propaganda platform for the Women’s Equality Party (WE). The BBC and the rest of the mainstream media already give them plenty such platforms.
Sophie Walker, leader of WE, won a Lying Feminist of the Month award after failing to respond to our public challenge of her party’s policy launch document – here. Sandy Toxic, the spokeswoman for WE, won two of the awards in the space of just three months – here and here.
One paragraph alone from Ms Walker’s article in yesterday’s Telegraph will suggest the mind-numbing idiocy of the article:
This year I helped to build a new political party for those (read: women) who are fed up of living with inequality; who are fed up of being told that their needs will be considered just as soon as x and y and z have been sorted out; who are fed up of being squeezed at birth into tiny, tiny little pigeonholes that limit their options according to their gender because people in government and business haven’t got the imagination to do things any other way.
How are females ‘squeezed at birth into tiny, tiny little pigeonholes that linit their options…’? This is nothing but silly hyperbolic paranoia. And could it be clearer? WE is a party run by fed-up women for fed-up women. Whiny women, one and all.
In the weeks leading up to the launch of J4MB in February 2013, we were struck by how straightforward it was to launch a political party in the UK. Ms Walker manages to whine even about this issue:
If someone had sat me down at the beginning of this adventure and told me how hard it would be simply to register as a new party, I would have laughed at them in disbelief.
What has a year of watching the antics of Britain’s first feminist political party taught me? Leaving to one side the fact that all the major political parties have long been pursuing anti-male feminist agendas, nothing that I didn’t know already. That feminists are whiny brats who hoover up privilege and media attention like a Dyson hoovers up dust from a carpet.
