If Americans can see men like Sen. McCain as both hero and villain, then the same standard should apply to women like Stormy Daniels – or so argues one New York Times opinion writer. The New York Times published an opinion piece Aug. 24 that heralded Stormy Daniels as a “Feminist Hero.” In the story and subsequently on MSNBC, CNN and Cosmopolitan columnist Jill Filipovic credited Daniels’ for an “unanticipated feminist turning point” after the president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, said he paid Daniels (or Stephanie Clifford) at Trump’s request.
As part of the media’s hysterical reaction after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court on Wednesday, Time magazine gave ardent feminist Jill Filipovic a platform to warn about the many perils America would face if the Roe v. Wade decision on abortion is overturned.
Cosmopolitan is all for praising women who use their power to make a difference, unless those women meet with someone it doesn’t like. Reality TV star Kim Kardashian encountered backlash from the magazine after her recent meeting with President Donald Trump about prison reform. On May 31, contributing writer Jill Filipovic called the meeting “sad” and “dangerous.” Cosmo’s headline agreed that Americans “Should Be Offended by Her White House Visit.
NBCNews.com has a website called “Think” that offers “Hot Takes” – none hotter than radical feminist Jill Filipovic trying to use the Chappaquiddick movie to slime the Republicans. Her headline was “Since Chappaquiddick, Democrats' views of women have evolved. Republicans' still need to. The new movie about the Ted Kennedy's involvement in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne highlights the progress women have made in the Democratic party”. She shamelessly concluded the movie pours shame on Republicans.
The most ridiculous spin exercise emerging from the Matt Lauer/Charlie Rose scandal is that somehow this is why Hillary Clinton lost, the lecherous male journalists beat her. The New York Times – the same newspaper that publicly devoted itself to electing Hillary Clinton on the front page – turned to feminist writer Jill Filipovic for an editorial on how sexist media bias is to blame for Hillary’s loss. “The latest harassment and assault allegations complicate that account and suggest that perhaps many of the high-profile media men covering Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump were the ones leading with their genitals.”
This week the media drooled over Hillary Clinton calling Donald Trump a “creep” in an audio excerpt from her upcoming memoir, where she was referring to Trump standing closely behind her during a presidential debate. While most of the media wondered if Clinton would’ve been better served if she had called Trump a “creep” in that moment, one feminist writer went so far as to say the incident was a classic case of sexual harassment, and that the media and voters stood by and ignored the victim---Clinton.
On many college campuses, free speech comes with the caveat: say what you want, as long as it doesn’t offend the liberal majority. And if it does, you can expect virulent protests in return, such as the riot that led to the injury of a professor at Middlebury College when social scientist Charles Murray was slated to speak.
Jill Filipovic wildly claimed that "sex is about to get a lot less fun" in a Thursday op-ed on CNN.com. Filipovic pointed the finger at Donald Trump nominating ObamaCare opponent, Rep. Tom Price, to be HHS secretary, and claimed the move is "just one peek at what Trump's notorious misogyny will look like when it's translated into policy." The Cosmopolitan contributor zeroed in on ObamaCare's "provision that full covers contraception," and claimed that if the controversial law is repealed, many women would no longer be able to "enjoy recreational sex without suffering economically, professionally or medically from an unwanted pregnancy."
Do-it-yourself (DIY) isn’t just for arts and crafts, according to the liberal media. Now, they’re using the term for abortion. Following stronger pro-life legislation and the closing of abortion clinics, liberal journalists first panicked about the rise of dangerous DIY abortion. Some exaggerated the number of women attempting them.
The long and short of Jill Filipovic's Friday op-ed in the New York Times was her outrage that the Catholic Church – and specifically, Pope Francis – still considered abortion to be a grave sin. The former Cosmopolitan political writer asserted that Pope Francis "offering forgiveness" to women who've had abortion is "a softer version of the same judgment: that the millions of women around the world who have abortions every year are sinners. Inviting women to feel shame and guilt for their abortions isn't a mercy; it's cruelty."
Jill Filipovic unleashed against Twitchy in a Wednesday item on Cosmopolitan's website. Filipovic decried how she had been "Twitchied," after she defended Planned Parenthood immediately after the Center for Medical Progress released its first undercover video on the abortion giant's harvesting of unborn babies' organs and tissue. She underlined that the conservative site's "role as an organized harassment tool is almost never discussed," and contended that "going after liberals seems to be a part of their mission, but they also tend to single out women and people of color."
The reality-TV Christian family the Duggars, spoke at the Values Voters Summit in Washington D.C. this past week and apparently while they were here got a chance to visit the National Holocaust Museum. 21-year-old daughter Jessa shared her thoughts about the sanctity of life to her Instagram afterwards and her comments drew a raging response from feminists like Cosmo’s Senior Political writer Jill Filipovic, who wrote a whole piece bashing Duggar.
Filipovic is full of demeaning comments about Jessa and the rest of her family, describing them as “tone-deaf” “deranged” and “kooky.” She accused Duggar of visiting the Holocaust museum and walking out, “not getting it.” Because, according to Filipovic, there is only one right response, and that one clearly has nothing to do with the “right” to abortion. She wrote:
