First Lady Michelle Obama is under fire yet again, as she attacked ‘men’, in the left’s war on men in America! The former First Lady set of the firestorm when she compared President Trump to a “divorced dad.”
Michelle Obama told Colbert that…
“Sometimes you spend the weekend with a divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We’re kind of living with divorced dad.”
How classy of Michelle to demean divorced dads — many of whom are hard working and take care of their children.
However, apparently she is completely living outside the real world, as there are countless dads, both divorced and happily married, who work hard to provide food and shelter for their children, work all day and then take time to get their kids to their soccer games, dancing classes, recitals, plays, and hundreds of other events going on! Apparently, Obama fails to note that dads play a critical role in giving their children support on their homework and teaching them life lessons! Apparently, she fails to note the dads that sacrifice their time to ensure that their children are happy, their home is clean and safe for their kids! Apparently, she fails to note how many dads play with their kids in the back yard, drive them to their events, cook dinner for their children, read books to them at bedtime, take them on vacation, as well as numerous other things, partially out of responsibility. but typically BECAUSE THEY LOVE THEIR KIDS!
Sadly, Obama isn’t alone in pushing ‘MAN HATE’, as Progressive Socialists over the past 20 or more years, have been demonizing and destroying ‘masculinity, while ‘feminized’ men, campus rape has hit an all-time high. New data suggests that the de-masculinization of men has had the opposite effect on sexual assaults and rape on college campuses. They found that sexual assault skyrocketed in numbers in concert with the de-masculinization of male students:
So just how do college’s try to demasculinize male students. College’s like Brown University have the male students take classes like…
- Masculinity101- a weekly discussion group for students to unpack and unlearn toxic masculine norms
- The Masculinity Storybook- a biannual publication of personal stories about struggles and triumphs related to toxic masculinity
- Conversations on Masculinity – a video compliation of interviews with students about masculinity
The de-masculinization of men started with the women’s liberation or feminist movement during the late ’60s. It did allow women to pursue a broad range of job opportunities and better educational opportunities, but it was also used by the Progressive left to slowly infect America’s culture with anti-masculine, anti-capitalism, anti-white culture. It also came at a steep price, and that price was the family unit. The feminist movement, which has little to do with a woman’s rights, and more to do with the extreme left-wing socialist or communist movement.
After the 1960s, the idea of the man being the breadwinner for the family changed. Additionally, during the subsequent 50 years, the idea of a one-income home began to fade out of existence, until the two-income home became nearly a requirement for survival. Families found themselves having to rely on nannies, daycare services, or schools to raise their children, simply because they had to have both parents working to survive. The divorce rate began to rise as well due to the new Progressive social norms, which made the concept acceptable. Children, as a result, began to be split between homes, and the family unit began to find it difficult to remember what it means to be a good and responsible parent, and ‘fatherhood’ and ‘motherhood’ roles began to become nearly indistinguishable.
In 1993, Time Magazine released an article titled…
“More children will go to sleep tonight in a fatherless home than ever in the nation’s history.”
It exposed how the fathers were disappearing from the family unit, and children were being ripped away from, abandoned, or developing estranged relationships with their dads. It detailed how the lack of ‘fathers’ from the family unit was leading to crime, drug abuse, school failure, depression, and other issues that were straining the children’s ability to grow up and become fully functioning members of society. Also, a shift that continues to become more problematic with each subsequent generation.
Society has morphed into a culture that doesn’t trust, nor does it want men to be parents. Meanwhile, Progressives push to not only encourage, but normalize gay couples to raise children as mother and father, while still demonizing the male figure, and claiming that they are not needed to have a child. Interestingly, the Journal of Child and Family Studies did a research study that suggested society has made it apparent that fatherhood is not required to raise a child, and tried to redefine manhood. As a result, men have lost confidence in their own ability to not only raise a child but be a good husband and spouse. Consequently, the divorce rate continues to climb, childhood behavioral norms continue to evolve, and the true American family, continues to become a historical artifact.
Unfortunately, the demonization of masculinity continues to pervade American society as the Mainstream Media and Hollywood try to paint ‘manliness’ as a disease. Even the thesaurus in Microsoft’s database lists the word ‘chauvinist’ as a synonym for ‘macho’.
Now, we see men who shave their bodies, act more feminine, laugh at other men who put their family first, over hanging out with ‘bros’ or mistresses as ‘whipped’. The role of the man has devolved from what God intended, to an abomination of sorts. Men are being encouraged to be less like men, and children and even women are now paying a very steep price.
Over the past 20 years, suicide rates in the United States have increased by more than 25%, According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). It reports that the suicide rates increased by 25% across the United States over nearly two decades. Even more concerning, twenty-five states experienced a rise in suicides by more than 30%.
Dr. Anne Schacht, principal deputy director of the CDC said…
“These findings are disturbing. Suicide is one of the top 10 causes of death in the US right now, and it’s one of three causes that is actually increasing recently, so we do consider it a public health problem — and something that is all around us.”
Dr. Anne Schuchat, Principal Director of the CDC
She also noted that drug overdoses were listed in the top 10 causes of death in America as well. Meanwhile, the National Center for Health Statistics finds that the number of girls and women taking their own lives is rising. In fact, they noted that in 2016 alone, 45,000 females were lost to suicide. Dr. Schuchat said…
“Our data show that the problem is getting worse.”
Dr. Anne Schuchat, Principal Director
Meanwhile, reports indicate that in-school behaviors are on the rise. Children are exhibiting increased behavioral problems, violence, disrespect, and other issues have become prevalent both inside and outside the schools.
Now, our young men of today and tomorrow are being taught by their Progressive Universities, Mainstream Media, and other Progressive-Left wing institutions that being manly is wrong. They are taught that fatherhood is like an appendix. They claim that it is an appendage that is unnecessary and can be removed.
Fortunately, many in America are beginning to turn against the ‘Progressive’ push for demonizing masculinity. For the good of not only men, but women, and our children, we must stand up to the ridiculous notion that men are inherently evil. Men should be able to speak out with reasonable authority. Not with arrogance, or cockiness, but confidence and care. Men should stand up for women. Men who show women respect, and speak for true equality After all, if a man puts down women for his own ego, or for any reason, he is not being manly, but instead insecure.
Yes, Progressives have pushed for a Godless future, and given the world false promises of hope. They have given women the false promises of equality. But instead, Progressive’s have given families heartache. They have given children broken homes. They have helped cultivate violence, anger, and psychological problems. They have given women solitude and strife. They have given our civilization prevalent drug abuse, loneliness, suicide, and death. That is because the Progressive model for our future uses flawed reasoning, and led American’s away from the idea that families need a mother and a father.
Interestingly, Progressive does not only claim to fight for women’s rights, but they simultaneously demonize any man or even women who refuse to subscribe to their ideological poison. They attack conservative women as traitors to their own kind. They attack Christians because Christianity violates their socialist and communist goals and aspirations. It is the real man who fights against their perverse vision of society. A real man fights for ‘real’ women’s rights, and they fight for God’s vision. They fight to protect our right to bear arms so that we can protect those whom we care about. They fight for everyone’s right to ‘free speech’. They fight for their family, and they fight to defend God and his word.
We see the Progressive #MeToo movement coalesce around something so troubling like sexual assault and abuse, but that is not truly what it is about. It is yet another name for the Progressive movement. You see them utilize sex as a weapon against all who oppose their agenda while protecting sexual predators who follow their ‘Progressive’ ideology. In the end, all the #MeToo movement does is weaken the defense of so many women who have been truly abused. It is like the parable of the boy who cried wolf, and when the girl or woman is truly abused, no-one will listen. That in and of itself is criminal, and the Progressive Socialist #MeToo movement should be ashamed. But it goes well beyond that! The same movement that gave birth to the #MeToo movement has created a generation of boys who don’t know what it means to be a real man. They don’t know how to grow up. They confuse promiscuity and fornication with manliness, instead of the idea of a man should show respect and honor their women. They should cherish and honor their wives.
Unfortunately, today boys look up to Elitist sports stars, Hollywood stars, and Progressive feminists who demonize marriage, demoralize men, and denigrate all who oppose their twisted philosophy. In truth, destroying and smashing ideals will not improve men, but instead, it destroys families. It destroys the character, and the idea of men being gentlemen.
Today, America needs to hold a bit more faith. In fact, Kevin Sorbo who starred in ‘God’s Not Dead’ once said…
“We are turning into a secular country, aren’t we? We are taking God out of everything. We wonder why bad things happen. We worry about schools, well they are taking God out of schools. The whole separation of Church and State… was to keep government out of schools and somewhere along the way our politicians have switched that around. It’s weird to me.”
Kevin Sorbo, Faith Based Actor
Sorbo pointed to Hollywood and said…
“Look at the stuff Hollywood puts out. There are tons of movies that are highly sexual and violent… Do we really want six or seven year-old kids watching stuff like that? So there is a huge audience out there and I know Hollywood and New York like to call them the ‘fly-over’ states but there are millions of people living in those states and those people do live by standards and they do live by morals and whether they are biblical or not.”
Kevin Sorbo, Faith Based Actor
Fortunately, American’s are more recently beginning to tune out Hollywood for more of a ‘Faith-Based’ lineup. Movies like ‘Fireproof’, ‘Facing the Giants’, ‘Gods Not Dead’, ‘Unplanned’, and so many more. Sorbo predicted…
“I think you are going to see a turning point; you can see that happening in our politics right now,” he said. “I think people are so fed up with the status quo.”
Kevin Sorbo, Faith Based Actor
Sorbo’s latest faith-based flick “Joseph and Mary,” out on DVD July 5th, focuses on the story of Joseph.
Unfortunately, Michelle Obama’s hatred of men isn’t an isolated belief or ideal! Fox News host Sean Hannity said Tuesday that Obama’s comments were
“demeaning and insulting.”
Tomi Lahren pointed out the double standard and liberal hypocrisy, as she said…
“Can you imagine if a conservative would compare anyone to a single mom in a derogatory fashion? There would be outrage … but because she has the last name of Obama she can get away with it.”
Regardless of what Michelle Obama or the radically out-of-touch left tries to say about men in America, the men should raise their heads up high, and be proud of their manliness. They should spend time with their families, and show their wives, mothers, and all women the respect that ‘God’ intended for them to show. Men should be unafraid to show their boys how to be men and teach their young girls how men should respect them, honor them, and treat them like ladies. It is our birthright and duty to be not only men, but to ‘man up’, and be role models for children, and protectors of our women and family. After all, the only thing ‘toxic’ in masculinity, is the lack thereof.
