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.”

Biden supports ‘exception’ to filibuster to ‘codify Roe v. Wade in the law’
Breaking Thursday, President Joe Biden gave his support to amend or drop the filibuster rule in order to restore perceived abortion rights lost following the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade on Friday.
While at the NATO summit in Spain, Biden said “The most important thing to be clear about is I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that.”
“And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this, requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision,” Biden added.
A filibuster requires 60 votes, and The Hill writes “There are not 50 senators who support changing the rules around the filibuster, however, making Biden’s suggestion unlikely to go anywhere.”
