As cries for him to run for Speaker raged this week, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy grilled Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards aggressively yet fairly. Now, the popular South Carolina Congressman is the target of an absurd attack from a Planned Parenthood apologist you have to read to believe.
She calls Gowdy “sexist and gross” and actually accuses Gowdy of “minking” at Richards!
“Minking” is a militant feminist word invented by Rachel Maddow that is used to describe a “mean man wink.” After all, one can’t have a “War on Women” without men possessing the ability to utilize an evil wink to ruthlessly victimize women…
Jennifer Gerson Uffalussy writes:
“A word of advice to men who decide to ruthlessly investigate women’s healthcare and reproductive rights: When you finally invite the head of Planned Parenthood to testify before Congress, don’t wink at her as you mansplain that “It’s not always what you say, it’s sometimes just what you mean.”
Alas, that is exactly what Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) did when questioning Planned Parenthood chief Cecile Richards on Tuesday during a hearing led by House Oversight and Government Reform (OGR) Committee—known amongst some on the Hill as the Ogre committee, and apparently for good reason.
Dubbed by Rachel Maddow as a “mink”—a mean wink! a man wink! a mean-man wink!—Gowdy’s mink emerged as a perfect symbol for everything that is sexist and, frankly, gross about The Summer of Men Telling Women About Their Bodies.
The mink came about four hours into the hearing, as Gowdy sparred with Richards over her previous testimony. “I appreciate the way you try to frame these issues,” Gowdy said from his Committee-ordained bench, his voice dripping with condescension. “That you’re the reasonable one, and those of us who have a contrary position aren’t reasonable.”
Richards responded that she never said Gowdy was unreasonable. But the congressman wasn’t having it. That’s when the mink—and indeed, some question whether it was an intentional mink—took place, as Gowdy informed Richards that she may not mean what she says.”
>>>WOW. How desperate are liberals and Planned Parenthood hacks if they have to dig to the bottom of the barrel and accuse Gowdy of “minking.” It’s pretty sad.
By constantly painting women as victims of “attacks” like Gowdy allegedly “minking” at Cecille Richards, one could argue liberals who manipulate the “War on Women” narrative for purely political gain for the next election are far more problematic than the Republicans they rally against.
