Sexism on the left: Will feminists defend Rona Ambrose after catty attack by lefty male journalist?

Brian LilleyArchive

If you’re like me, you’ve noticed how those on the left like to claim they’re supportive of women but then they start talking and reveal how they really feel about women.

Well, conservative women any way as in today's prime example from author, columnist and unhinged conservative hater Michael Harris who went after Rona Ambrose; not on policy, but for how she dresses.

"Rona Ambrose showed up in the House in something that resembled leather. She looked like the girl who fell for the leader of the pack down at the laundromat," Harris wrote in a recent column.

His fashion commentary came towards the end of a long, rambling rant which was short on facts but long on his hate for Stephen Harper and all Conservatives.

Harris, once a respected journalist and author is now mostly lauded by others who suffer from Harper Derangement Syndrome which is colouring his judgment so badly that he’s criticizing the woman that leads her Majesty's Loyal Opposition for the way she dresses!

Just imagine what would happen to me if I were to criticize a Liberal MP for how she dressed? I'd be denounced as a sexist pig amid calls to fire, banish, tar and feather me!

But of course I wouldn’t do that because I tend to focus on policy.

Politics is about policies so what matters to me is who has the right policies, who has the wrong policies and what those policies will mean in our lives.

Harris doesn't care about policies, and is more interested in personal attacks whether against Rona Ambrose or Scott Reid - basically, any Conservative.

Michael Harris should be ashamed of himself and the folks at iPolitics should apologize but since this is a conservative woman being attacked by a lefty man, it won’t happen.

We should no more wait for them to apologize than we should wait for feminists to come out and stand with Rona. Just like Harris, for them, women who lean right don't count.

“unhinged conservative hater Michael Harris” It is worth noting that not all conservatives are haters, any more than all conservatives are unhinged.
His comments about Rona Ambrose maybe taken as a compliment since the girl who fell for “the leader of the pack” down at the laundromat was considerably younger than Rona.

Michael Harris. Shrug, who cares. He always was a silly little tit. Now he’s just sagging.
commented 2016-01-31 13:44:07 -0500
Michael Harris is a flaming faggot otherwise what normal man cares about what a women is wearing. Especially a women who you have nothing to do with. That is spreading hate and nothing else … unless Michael Harris is in the fashion trade and Rona is a model. Got that you sphincter stretcher. I know this message is a tad crude, but this makes me very angry ….

the old suntv and paper employed the same type of renaissance man .. warren kinsella… typical liberal hypocrite.. posted a picture of a con mp and rapped him for being “fat” and his shirt half tucked in.. of course when called on his hypocrisy kinsella did what all cowards do ..ran away..

Hmm…yet another jab from the left pointing out how the woman looks rather than the content of their character (remember John McCallum’s (who is a sartorial mess) response to Michelle Rempel, to “look more cheerful?” I just wish the Liberals will soon start to look less retarded.
commented 2016-01-31 01:06:27 -0500
Rona…Where did you get your leather jacket?!?! It is beautiful and absolutely professional and classy. I would like one like it. What a ridiculous petty article.

She is doing a bang up job as interim leader for the Conservatives. Why can she no longer be considered, in the next leadership race. It sucks. She seems the most competent. Candice Bergan is no slouch either. I don’t see any men in the party who are making any noise these days. We need someone strong and smart, the best ‘man’ for the job, regardless of gender.

Its such a joke Justin declaring that Harper’s cabinet was short on women. We have many women in the conservative cabinet, the difference between them and the Liberals or NDP is that they are smart and effective. I’m sure they would consider an appointment as a result of ‘affirmative action’ beneath them.

rona has her shit together, I would totally vote for her in a heartbeat! she doesn’t need defending. she’s not a victimized , unpatriotic liberal .

Respect Orcs – “His Hairness” – that’s perfect, and shows how very shallow the voters were who elected this twit! I think he’s horrible and I bet he dyes his hair to boot!
commented 2016-01-30 14:29:54 -0500
I always saw Rona as a Good Person. Smart, Good looking, able. But Never thought of her as a Woman or a Man but as a Person. Liberals can be such Morons and Hypocrites. Lets face the facts. Rona would be a better PM than Justin. All day long. He should do the right thing, realize he is way over his head, and his minions are twerps.

In truth that would apply only to Conservative women. The Liberal minded, much like their new immigrant Muslim friends, believe that Conservative (dhimmi) women are targets for political molestation and rape. Whereas those ‘Liberal’ women are politically safe in their ideological niquabs and burqas.
commented 2016-01-30 13:58:11 -0500
Perhaps, Mr. Harris would prefer to see all women covered from head to toe in the black burqa. Liberals really do not see anything wrong with it.
commented 2016-01-30 10:54:44 -0500
To answer your question, Brian; NO, There will be no media backlash to this because
A) the MSM is an extension of the liberal party patronage clientele and -
B) Lefty sexism/bigotry/racism/sadism/despotism is righteous doncha know. Being a Leftish prog type means never having to apologize for your hypocrisy or conflicted ideals.

Glenn Craig…predictable…that is who you are! "I am one of the founding brothers of MGTOW…..I am a card carrying member of the CPC…..I do not for one minute support any sort of white knight…etc…one thing you truly are not is a white knight…you didn’t need to tell us! ☺

Thanks Darryl! A relief to read your comments!

Michael mann feels the same, it is in his support for islam and the way they beat women and treat them as second class, He supports this type of thing that degrades women the same as he supports an iman telling his death cult faithful how to beat your wife. The guy is a woman hating lowlife. Go pray to the east mikey

MICHAEL MANN are you really that ignorant or are you a troll?

Michael Harris has done some great and courageous work in the past. I can’t even see him as a lefty, I think he just goes where his conscious takes him. So, he made some joke that only he and a few others will find humorous, not a big deal.
commented 2016-01-30 07:41:15 -0500
You see this time and time again in comments on many sites mostly, but now the left based media as well. When people can’t make a viable point, or run out reasonable arguments, they resort to name calling or personal attacks. Michael Harris used to be above the drive by smear tactic, now he does himself and journalism itself a disservice by stooping to such low tactics.

Some really dumb comments here, esp. from Jay Kelly. The point was that reporters should focus on issues, not fashion. And for an obscure reporter, Lilley seems to question some pretty high level politicians :)

Brian Lilley asks: “Just imagine what would happen to me if I were to criticize a Liberal MP for how she dressed?” The short answer is “very little” since Brian is an obscure writer for a minor right-wing outlet that few people pay attention to.
But it would be worth a shot. There are fifteen women in the cabinet and some of them dress as sloppily as Sheila Gunn Reid. Why not put out a tirade against one of them and see if it attracts attention to the Rebel? It couldn’t hurt readership any.

Man I hate those fuckin lefty Lieberals. They are the most hypocritical fuckers around.
commented 2016-01-30 00:42:33 -0500
Michael Mann i see you have no comment on the lefts hypocrisy on this issue, so you insult others like a good liberal after you accused conservatives of being angry radicals , keep on proving your hypocrisy like a good left wing idiot.
commented 2016-01-30 00:40:27 -0500
Michael Mann you are truly an idiot. Texas is a great place , and when do they think black people should be slaves moron? Go to Africa and see real racism. It is not from the whites either.

@micheal Mann
I love Jesus sure, Jesus even loves you, but I don’t love you, I very much dislike you, I dislike that you cannot formulate an viable argument so you slander and slur because that’s all that’s left in any failing debate. You, like a lot of the left, do not understand that you have been fed an abundant amount of disinformation from the cbc, union leaders and invested 3rd parties, and that’s not your fault, but believing all of it is.
On the plus side I hope you keep commenting, it gives us a deep insite into the typical insecure, small and bigoted mind of a trolling Canadian liberal.
Sometimes your purpose in life is to be an example of what not to be like. Perhaps you should think about that before condemning a religion, one that the country you live in was founded on, but that’s the mentality of the liberals. I just wish we had some cutting edge tech to give away to make our U.S. Neighbours like us during the new Trudeau reign, remember the Avro arrow? Me neither?

Michael Mann. Clearly you are a kind, honest, and sensitive biatch preferring to snide your way through life. Not only do you come across like the man in the pink shirt, but you share a name with another kind, honest, and sensitive biatch from Pennsylvania who uses the same bottomless wit to skewer all those with whom he disagrees. You read the article only to provide fodder for your endless trolling. Meanwhile the adults are getting on with business.
