A Man, Duh Marcotte:

Why Do Women Vote Republican?

A new poll from Public Policy Polling is making headlines this week because it reveals that 57 percent of Republican primary voters want to make Christianity the national religion, even though doing so would require removing the First Amendment from the Constitution. Even more interestingly, the data shows a stark gender divide among Republicans polled on this question: 66 percent of Republican women versus 49 percent of Republican men would like to see America become more theocratic.

Overall, the data suggests that there may be an intriguing gender divide when it comes to the motivations of Republican voters, with results showing men to be more motivated by economic reasons and women drawn to conservative politics for more religious and social reasons. Other interesting gender gaps: Men are nearly twice as likely as women to identify themselves as “Tea Party”; 73 percent of Republican men refuse to accept that climate change is real, compared with 57 percent of Republican women; and Republican men are actually more likely than Republican women to accept evolutionary theory, with 43 percent of men versus 30 percent of women expressing a belief in evolution. Since climate change denialism is more tied up in anti-environmentalist sentiment and evolution denialism is primarily about religion, this divide makes perfect sense.

The gender divide persists when the poll looks at which potential primary candidates male and female Republicans support. Politicians who are seen as more libertarian or more supportive of corporate interests (Rand Paul, Scott Walker) get more love from men, whereas candidates that are more on the Bible-thumping side of the equation (Mike Huckabee) are more popular with women. Of all potential candidates, Huckabee had the highest favorability rating among women.

There’s been an increased interest in recent years in what motivates Republican women, particularly as the party has amped up its assault on reproductive rights. This data, which jibes with countless studies have shown that women are more likely to be religious than men, helps answer that question: It’s religion.

Shorter: Them Republican bitches be whack, yo!

To really understand her post you need to know that in addition to being a radical feminist and a misandrist, A Man, Duh Marcotte is also a radical atheist and a far-left progressive Democrat. She hates men more than any hetero woman I ever heard of, and her radical views on men and religion got her kicked off the John Edwards campaign staff.

On January 30, 2007, the John Edwards 2008 presidential campaign hired Marcotte to act as the campaign’s blogmaster.[6] She was soon criticized for her previous work.[7][8][9] [10] The campaign responded that, while Edwards was “personally offended” by some of Marcotte’s remarks, her job as their blogmaster was secure.[11]

In January 2007, Marcotte wrote controversial statements about the Duke lacrosse case, including that people who defended the accused were “rape-loving scum”.[12][13][14] A few months before all charges were dropped in the case, on a blog post titled “Stuck at the airport again…..” Marcotte wrote in part, “Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair.” The post attracted criticism, including from The New York Times. Cathy Young described Marcotte as a leader of a “cyber-lynch mob,” writing that, “in Marcotte’s eyes, the real crime of the independent feminists is helping preserve the idea that the presumption of innocence applies even in cases of rape and sexual assault.”[14] Marcotte later deleted the post.[15]

On February 12, 2007, the Catholic League called Marcotte’s review of the film Children of Men “anti-Christian”.[16] Later the same day, Marcotte announced that she had resigned from the Edwards campaign, accusing Bill Donohue of a sexist perspective in the calls for her resignation. She returned to her work on other blogs.[17] In an article for Salon a few days later, she said the reaction to her comments on the Duke lacrosse case was the first in a series of “shitstorms” that had prompted her to resign from the campaign.[18]

A Man, Duh lacks the objectivity to evaluate the motives and life choices of conservative Christian women. Is it possible that these women she is talking about are Christians and Republicans because they are by nature conservative? A Man, Duh doesn’t have any kids. Perhaps motherhood has an effect on some women that makes them more conservative and/or spiritual.

There simply isn’t enough data to do anything more than superficial analysis. Mix that with a strong preexisting bias and the conclusions will be suspect, to say the least.

    considering democratic women, boxtox nan and dippy debby do not represent most women in this country maybe she is looking in the wrong places.
    Most women want what is best for their families. Something the new “feminists” do not understand. they are too busy bringing down instead of building up families. Kill the kids is their motto. if you have to have a kid , limit their education and keep them stupid so they can be controlled. Stay at home moms are bad, ball breaking bitches are good.

    I’d like to know how the question about making the United States a Christian nation was worded. If you gave me a choice of a national religion or no national religion, I’d opt for none. But if the question was which religion would you be most comfortable becoming our national religion, I’d pick Christian although I’m not one. I can deal with a government whose guiding principles are “Love thy neighbor” and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. As a woman, if I thought becoming a Christian nation would stop the Muslims at the gate, I’d consider it. While women may not be equal in the eye of some versions of Christianity, we’re more equal than we would be under Sharia. Modern Christianity appears to have at its core the belief that one must come to God willingly. So I think I could survive with the same attitude I have now of each to his own. But I don’t really believe a large number of Republican women want to live in a theocracy.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      I’m guessing it was something like “Should America be a Christian nation?” I doubt they asked if the Constitution should be amended to make it that way.

      • 49erDweet says:

        I think I saw that very wording on some clickbait a few days ago. Idiots gotta stir. LSM gotta slant. It’s the only game they have left since Omumbles jumped the shark.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Despite what some atheists would like to believe, Western Civilization is very entertwined with Christianity. Our Founding Fathers were deists, not atheists. They believed that science would reveal the true nature and existence of the one true Creator.

      Nonetheless, they wanted government to be secular because of the role the Catholic church and Protestant churches played in European politics and government.

    “America’s Foremost Public Intellectual” Melissa-Harris Perry: I Hope Trayvon Martin “Whooped the Sh**” Out of George Zimmerman

    On top of him, pounding his head MMA style, bouncing his head off the concrete?

    He did, Missy. He did “whoop the sh**” out of him. And I think you’ve long known that, as every witness said he did, and Zimmerman’s head showed injuries consistent with having one’s head punched repeatedly into the concrete.

    I think you’ve had a secret position all along, a hateful, racist one, that you will not confess:

    That you know Trayvon Martin did just what all the witnesses said he did, and that George Zimmerman was perfectly sober in deciding his life was in some danger, but you think Zimmerman should have taken his punishment happily, whether he wound up dead or brain damaged or not, because he had the temerity to challenge Trayvon’s right to be in that housing development, and therefore Martin was entitled to dish out a little Impromptu Street Justice and Two-Fisted Racial Healing, even if it resulted in man’s death.

    I think some of our more Racialist friends on the left have long held this position — that yes, Martin was pounding Zimmerman’s head into the concrete, but so what, Because Zimmerman deserved it for being a “racist,” and the Rule of Street Justice says that a black man who feels disrespected is entitled to some self-determined Racial Payback if he likes.

    So yeah, that’s what I think. The seething “Let’s get Justice for Travyon” types usually don’t admit that Martin was pounding Zimmerman, but, and this is key, they usually don’t spend much time denying that salient fact either. They just sort of handwave it away, as if that’s just a trivial detail and not very important to their Big Picture legal analysis.

    And on that point I think they’re being honest– they don’t see this as important in their legal analysis. Zimmerman deserved what he was getting for the crime of Disrespecting a Black Man, and he broke the Rules by putting a stop to his chastisement.

    Whether he feared for his life or not, so what? Racial Justice demands that he take his Justice, as Trayvon determined it should be meted out.

    • SHV says:

      “the crime of Disrespecting a Black Man”
      With the egging on by his “girl friend”, I think Treyvon thought he was protecting his little brother from a “crazy ass-cracker” sexual predator.

      Urban Dictionary:
      One who engages in anal sex.
      That wanker is an ass cracker.

    • 1539days says:

      Physical retribution and the praise for it in the Black community is a major problem. Of course, to most progs, the only problem in the Black community is that White people still exist.

    • Underwhelmed says:

      She’s repulsive beyond the telling. And so is Marcotte. They make my skin crawl with loathing, the pair of them.

    For all the talk of nuance by the left, the issues that Republicans are skeptical of are actually nuanced. To “believe” in global warming now means to accept the premise that anthropogenic global warming is a fact, the earth is getting warmer and that we could stop it if we all lived in NYC style cities and rode the bus everywhere. To believe in evolution means to accept not just the provable fact of natural selection, but the almost mystical theory that positive evolutionary traits spring up from nowhere.

    Even the Christian nation thing is not cut and dried. Most laws in the Western world correspond to the Ten Commandments and other tenants of Christianity. Taxes are even accepted by Jesus. It’s a lot better than Hammurabi’s code.

    • elliesmom says:

      I grew up in a rural area, I’ve lived in a big city, and a small city, and I currently inhabit the burbs. When I lived in the sticks on a farm, we were pretty self-sufficient for the modern era. Living here in the burbs I could get off my duff and grow some of my own food if I had to. But when I’ve lived in a city, I have been completely dependent on others for all of my basic needs. I think that’s one of the reasons Democrats hate the folks in small towns and rural areas. City folks need them more than they need city folks. While I’m not a total skeptic about global warming having an anthropogenic component, I am skeptical of the motives for moving us all into high rise apartments and taking away our cars and pickups.

      • 1539days says:

        I only went to one Tea Party rally, but one of the things they talked about was in Europe (Germany in this case) the majority of people will never even think of living in houses. The infrastructure and transportation and utilities are all centralized. Either you live in an apartment, live on a farm or are rich and have a large apartment / home.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        The apartments going up in my area have the “urban” look. I call it stacked sardine cans. It is not just the single family home they are after. Even the old garden style buildings with decks and open pass ways and some green space are the enemy of the new urbanism. Not enough units per building. Two much space per person. That lawn needs to be mowed Only two or three floors – the horror! And parking lots – oh my goodness thou should ride only bikes (helmet required) and public transportation only.

        And the floor plans no longer say bedroom/living room/kitchen/bath. They say things like sleep/eat/wash. If find it stupid. And scary.

    • swanspirit says:

      The ten commandments, and actually many more of the commandments, ( there are 613 original commandments )are valid and legitimate contributors to, and historical references for the evolution of the laws of western civilization.

    Obama is not fighting ISIS because our military trained them, and our tax dollars continue to fund them. If Obama were not in the White House, ISIS would not exist.
