Ladies of MSNBC blame ‘Republican women’ for ‘upholding the patriarchy’

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.”

Disney, Netflix, Meta, Paramount among large corporations that will cover travel costs for employees’ abortions

Disney, Netflix, Paramount and Meta are just some of the companies that have immediately come out saying they will cover travel expenses for employees to get abortions.

The announcement came after the United States Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade on Friday.

“We recognize the impact of the ruling and that we remain committed to providing comprehensive access to quality and affordable care for all of our employees, cast members and their families, including family planning and reproductive care, no matter where they live,” Disney told the Washington Post

Paramount Global leaders sent a memo to staff Friday saying the company intends to cover travel costs for employees to receive services covered through company-sponsored health insurance where those services, including abortion, are prohibited, Variety reported.

Facebook’s parent company Meta, said in a statement that it intends “to offer travel expense reimbursements, to the extent permitted by law, for employees who will need them to access out-of-state health care and reproductive services.”

“We are in the process of assessing how best to do so given the legal complexities involved,” a spokesperson for Meta said.

 Dick’s Sporting Goods announced that it will reimburse as much as $4,000 in abortion travel expenses “to the nearest location where that care is legally available” for employees, their spouses and dependents in areas where abortion is restricted.

“We recognize people feel passionately about this topic — and that there are teammates and athletes who will not agree with this decision,” chief executive Lauren Hobart said on LinkedIn. “However, we also recognize that decisions involving health and families are deeply personal and made with thoughtful consideration. We are making this decision so our teammates can access the same health care options, regardless of where they live, and choose what is best for them.”

A Netflix spokesperson told Variety that the company offers a $10,000 lifetime allowance per full-time employee and/or their dependents per service for travel for “cancer treatment, transplants, gender affirming care, or abortion — through our U.S. health plans.”

Warner Bros. Discovery has expanded its “healthcare benefits options to cover transportation expenses for employees and their covered family members who need to travel to access abortion and reproductive care,” a spokesperson for the company confirmed.

Disney announced it would cover the cost of travel for “family planning” for any worker who cannot access care where they live, including “pregnancy-related decisions.”
