Rich Hoffman Loves Women: The tricky business of rejecting a progressive platform
(In the letter included below there is mention of the tears that have fallen by the cuts made to the Lakota school budget. The letter in context deals with the hypocrisy of this statement, because if reality were taken fully for the truth, it would be discovered that there is much to cry over. But the article from Saturday of which the letter writer referenced, I’ve included here for comparison. The attempt of the article was to paint a picture of a district that should vote for a tax increase to prevent these tears. It’s about time that we stop making decisions because people cry, and that we begin to actually think—just an observation. Crying costs a lot of money and doesn’t solve any problems. Now–onto the meat of this particular article.)
My daughter and I had a wonderful time reading the various Facebook comments from the ignorant specimens who were so quick to judge me following the salacious Enquirer article provoked by a swarm of angry Lakota residents who see me as their number one opposition to passing their next tax increase. The comments were funny because as she said, “you are anything but a sexist woman-hater. You raised me and I’m one of the most independent women I know.”
I told her that what those accusers were trying to paint me as would not stick once people dug into my life, which I have been very open about here on these pages at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. I told her that I hoped to lure the radicals of our community to that bait because my character could withstand the accusations and that I hoped to show the hypocrisy and ignorance of their position so people could see that radicals jumped to the same type of elementary conclusions when promoting school levies or any other taxes. The comments were funny, and the way that people adhered onto a collective band wagon to believe something even when overwhelming proof otherwise is abundant for all to see, was quite astonishing and a wonderful experiment in political science.
What my accusers of hating women neglected to account for is that my view of women is much, much higher than what the feminist movement has given to women, and I live by that heightened state every single day. In fact, the women who know me, and there are many, knew instantly what garbage the things being said about me where which allowed me to show how the other side manipulates the facts to suit their version of reality.
My daughter has been present when I’ve had many fights with other people so she understood the context of my comments and how they were directed. But to say that I hate women is an absolute joke.
Where the breakdown begins is that feminists believe that unless you buy into their version of women and their social roles, then they say you hate them, so that they can control your behavior. Once they put you into a defensive position, they can control the argument. This is how they have as a group advanced many progressive topics, by using the collective nature of some women to appear as though they could massively shape worldwide perception.
Since I personally reject most aspects of progressive political platforms my views will drastically contrast with those who subscribe to those progressive theories and I will say that liberal feminists have it wrong and for me to endorse their views even though they are wrong would be dishonest to my personal observations, which I will not entertain. People who wish to advance progressive policy attempted to use on me the same strategy they’ve used on many to shut down an enemy to their ideas because I said things that they thought gave them the right to pass judgment on me to build a case that I hate women.
In my personal life I have so many instances that display how much I value women that I could write an entire book on just this topic, but for simplicity let me address one of my beliefs that will probably insult 99% of my readers here, but I will say it because this belief of mine is based on my observations of reality. I’ll say it because it is my belief system, and has been well-known in my family for years.
Typically there are bachelor parties for the groom before his wedding. This tradition eludes me as to its value and I’ve thought about it in great detail. When I had my own wedding 24 years ago the members of my wedding party watched a movie. And I’m not talking about a dirty movie where drinking was involved……we watched The Empire Strikes Back, because we all wanted to watch something we all enjoyed, and that was my bachelor party. To do the usual thing and go out on the town to a strip joint, or have members of my wedding party purchase a stripper for me would have been an insult to my bride. If I desired to do such things as be with another woman, or see another woman naked, then why should I get married, and why should some whore gain the ability to rob from my bride the gift of sex on our wedding night? Why should it be cheapened with a stripper who will take her cloths off for just money and for anybody?
When my brother was married he and his wedding party flew out to Vegas for one of those bachelor parties glorified in the film The Hangover. I did not go nor was I even invited, because the answer was known before the question was even asked. He knew what I thought about those types of activities so we avoided the discussion and just agreed to disagree. When my brother-in-law was married every man in my family went to a bachelor party involving the typical fair except me.
When I’ve had to marry off one of my daughters the bachelor party we had for him was at Target World and the women of the wedding party were invited also. We rented the place for the evening and shot up a storm with all the members of both families present. No strippers to insult the bride. Only guns and lots of ammunition fired off.
Last summer my nephew was married and he wanted me to be his best man, so that meant I was in charge of the bachelor party. Instead his brother handled the duties because they knew better than to ask me, because I feel so strongly about disgracing a man’s bride by indulging in a cheapened slut the night before a man’s wedding. I believe these things because the sanctity of the woman’s sexual offering on the night of the wedding should have epic meaning. The sex on a wedding night should not involve images of a painted up hussy on the mind of the male, but the gift of his bride and that’s all there is to it. The woman should be put on a pedestal and treated as though she were the most important woman in the world, and it’s the man’s job to do this, to make her feel this way.
Progressive feminism has robbed women of this experience, and has cheapened marriage to such an extent that nobody even tries anymore and this is a tragedy on our society and I don’t participate in those social activities because I see where it’s taking us.
This is just one example, but it’s a big one because it reflects my views across the entire spectrum. I will say that the feminists are wrong. Their focus is on the wrong aspects of their plight because the essence of their argument is false right out of the gate and our entire society has just adopted those failures without question. The feminist focuses on “the collective whole” and this is why they are an intellectual failure. And if their movement had legitimacy they would work together to help Arab women and the abuses they suffer, (CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE) but they don’t. Instead they are used by political machines to purchase bloc voting and nothing more.
The people who know me best are ashamed to tell me they flew out to Vegas with “The guys” for a wild night of “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” They don’t tell me and I don’t ask, but I hear about them bragging about such experiences when they think I can’t hear.
I live by my own morality, not one created by Margret Sanger or some other feminist progressive. I think for myself and my opinions are sometimes very strong. But the people who know me best knew instantly how ridiculous the accusations made about me in that Cincinnati Enquirer article truly were. And those people were able to see how a group of progressive activists were able to shape a lie into something the masses wanted to believe so easily. This was valuable because the same tactics are used to paint anyone who doesn’t want to pay higher taxes to a school a “child hater.” The same strategy is used against a person who rejects progressive feminism which is why I worded my statements the way I did, to provoke those activist radicals so we could have names to place next to their actions.
My comments were artistically rendered and intentionally graphic on purpose. I didn’t say them on the radio, I didn’t send them in an email, I said them on my personal blog posting and given the things I have seen on the screen shots I collected about the people who most criticized me, I’d say my comments were a lot more tasteful, and respectful then what I received in return. I personally don’t have much respect for people who sell themselves cheaply even if the act is not sex and that’s my opinion that will not be shaped by some pathetic progressive thinker, whom I reject. My daughter knows this because she’s heard it from me for 22 years. And everyone who knows me understands as well.
After the Enquirer article some of my friends were so enraged that they felt they had to come to my defense. Some of them came to my defense here on these pages; some of them called me, or sent me personal emails. Some of them wrote articulate letters like the one below, which has special meaning because a year ago this person was one of those who might have believed what they heard about me and added to the pile of accusations. He certainly wasn’t a fan of Rich Hoffman a year ago–quite the opposite. He asked me to include his letter on my site which you can see below.
I have taken time to read the blogs and the enquirer article. Taking time to reflect is important because emotion just gets in the way of the objective facts. But what I have to say has nothing to do with the content of the above.
So, those of you who shared your feelings; do you really know Rich Hoffman. Have you seen him outside the blog, listened to his feelings, experienced his actions or witnessed his family values. I have so I believe I can pass judgment on the real Rich Hoffman.
I know your voices in some way are defending a person or persons. Or you are speaking for a certain group of individuals (Hint: they make decisions for us). My question is do you really know them, their agenda or what their motives are. You see I have experienced that side also, and put my trust in them. But what happened; I felt the impact of intimidation, silence or humiliation. I know which person cares about my family.
I tried to do everything the right way. I do not like being backed into a corner especially when it involves a friend. A friendship not born from a blog but from a time of need. Your actions did not just affect Rich but his family. I know that feeling all too well.
When you are ready to share, contact the man who was there and will always be there for us, Rich Hoffman.
As far as the two most important women in my life, my wife and daughter (remember them) just ask them about Rich. They will say without hesitation that he is welcome in our home anytime. Until next time: be well.
At no time in what I wrote did I say I hated women. I just made an observation and stated facts as I see them. A majority of the hate directed at me from that Enquirer article was all assumptions where the advocates offered their translation of my thoughts based on their deformed political opinions, framed for them by progressive politics. I feel comfortable saying such things because I have a personality that can withstand those types of misjudgments because in no aspect of my life is there a woman who can come forward and honestly proclaim that I’m a sexist or a woman-hater. So I was able to provoke from those school levy advocates their tendency to completely lie and manipulate the masses to serve their own selfish agenda.
So remember when a fool tells you that Rich Hoffman is a woman-hater, it’s most likely the same fool who will tell you that you are selfish for not paying more in tax, and that if they don’t obtain the right to rob you of more of your money, then the kids will suffer. The only thing that makes our kids suffer is having lying, manipulative, progressive radicals in charge of their lives. That in itself is a tragedy many people aren’t willing to deal with—yet. But they will. It was not me who said such bad things about the women of my community. My comments were directed at a select few who have attempted to smear my name with rhetoric for years now. It was those advocates, those who placed those falsehoods on their Facebook accounts and added the statements “woman hater” and many other terms using a progressive definition that is less than my personal standard. Because my opinion differs from theirs they felt entitled to attempt to ruin my name in behalf of their selfishness. That is why they are dangerous and should not be in control of any additional funds. It’s also why nothing they say can be believed because they have shown that they will go to great measure to out-right lie.
The lesson here is that no group or gender should allow themselves to be pulled into a political argument just because they believe they are assimilated all for one, and one for all. And they certainly shouldn’t be so quick to accept comments without verification, making them instruments of evil. And there are few evils in this world more severe than the thoughtless diatribes of a group who is too lazy to think for themselves and would rather destroy the life of another to preserve their existence of mediocrity.
