The liberal blame game is not satisfied blaming the world’s malfeasance on White men, and has now specified even further, on Republican women. Over the weekend, MSNBC host Tiffany Cross and The Cross Connection guests blamed quite a lot on ladies of the GOP.
Specifically, the MSNBC guests accused Republican women of supporting the oppression of women through supporting the patriarchy. “Look, we do have to call out our sisters in this struggle who don’t always vote in alignment with the folks you see in the screen here” said Cross. “That is very frustrating” she added, in a segment discussing the 103rd anniversary of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment by Congress. The women panelists Cross referred to were all minority females.
Alleged “civil rights leader” Carmen Perez-Jordan accused those who do not support expanding abortion rights beyond Roe v. Wade of upholding the patriarchy. “Well, I think we have to understand that patriarchy isn’t upheld only by men. Not one of the eight women who are the Republican members of Congress voted for the Women’s Health Protection Act.”
“And meanwhile there are male allies, we need to be in solidarity. We know the historical context of women having access to privilege through their husbands, sons, fathers” she added.
Cross aired a clip of political strategist Lucy Caldwell saying the following on her program on May 7:
A real problem is that Republican women are in this mode and specifically white women, where, in a way, they do benefit from the patriarchy, right? And so they are feeling or participating in the same kind of story of economic insecurity or, you know, a right or a privilege that they believe that their white husbands, and sons, and fathers, deserve is going to a person of color, right? So, they have a stake in the old paradigm that is harmful. They also, at the same time, it’s–it’s– good to be a white woman because white women benefit from the progress that Democrats have worked to assure for white women.
“I love her, the honesty in that answer” Perez-Jordan responded. “She says it is good to be a white woman.”

Controversial Remarks by Progressive Lawmaker Sparks Intra-Party Clash over Hamas’ Alleged Sexual Violence
In a recent television appearance, Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal stirred controversy and faced intense criticism from fellow Democrats for her remarks seemingly downplaying reported sexual violence by Hamas terrorists against Israeli women.
The contentious comments come amid disturbing accounts of rape and brutal assaults following Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel on October 7, with prominent Democrats expressing outrage and demanding unequivocal condemnation.
According to reports from Fox News, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz from Florida called for a forceful denouncement of sexual violence and condemning any attempt to create moral equivalence between Hamas and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). The accusations of rape and sexual assault have sparked concern about the well-being of Israelis still held hostage by Hamas.
During her appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Jayapal faced scrutiny for not outright condemning Hamas for the alleged acts, instead emphasizing the broader impact of war on women.
Furthermore, the comments drew swift criticism, with Representative Ritchie Torres of New York insisting on the need for unequivocal condemnation of sexual violence against Israeli women.
Despite Jayapal’s history of advocating against sexual violence, her recent remarks have led to a significant intra-party clash, with Democrats challenging the notion of finding a balance or moral equivalence in addressing such sensitive matters.
The controversy underscores the complexities that arise when lawmakers navigate geopolitical conflicts while upholding principles of justice and human rights. As tensions escalate within the party, the incident highlights the broader challenges of maintaining a unified front on contentious global issues.
