Republicans are claiming that they support equal pay for women, but the party’s recent actions tell a different story.
The claim comes in this tweet from the Republican National Committee (via the Huffington Post) marking Labor Day, the holiday meant for celebrating the American worker by issuing hollow political statements that don’t really add up.
EXCUSED ME?!?!? No but really, EXCUSE ME? This, from the party who regularly goes on cable-news tears about how mommies make different choices and deserve to get paid less? And the people who parrot Libertarian hero Milton Friedman saying it’s better for women to get paid less? They FILIBUSTERED the Paycheck Fairness Act. They routinely muddle the argument by saying women choose lower-paying fields than men, conveniently ignoring that the statistics on equal pay are about wages for the SAME work.
White Man from San Diego Waves Gun Around Small Children In Confrontation With Police and Is Taken Into Custody Alive.
This white man walked towards the police with a gun pointed at them and they spend half an hour talking to him before they shoot him one time. If he had been a black man, they would’ve shot him dead. Before you police apologists claim this man has a history of mental illness (he does) that’s why the police was lenient, Ezell Ford, a mentally ill black man, was recently killed by the LAPD.
