Distractions, Distractions: False Reporting by an EMILY’s List Spy at Smart Girl Summit

Let’s jump right into this. The left is officially so desperate to pick up votes that they have stooped to using distracting, divisive issues to move attention away from the defining issue of this election cycle: THE ECONOMY.
In Louisiana, Democrat strategists on going on record saying that they will use race to convince voters in New Orleans why they should vote against Vietnamese Republican Congressman, Joseph Cao and instead select an African-American Democratic State Representative, Cedric Richmond,—because he’s “black like them”.
In my home state of Arkansas, the Democratic Party sent out a release Monday night demanding an apology of Republican Congressman John Boozman for laughing at a conservative commentator’s remarks to a tea party rally.
Really? Are we really chasing cameras to see “who laughs at what jokes”, now? Man, they must REALLY think Senator Lincoln is in trouble.
And, then there’s the reason I’m writing this article in the first place. Just days ago, I delivered two speeches to the Smart Girl Politics Summit, a gathering of conservative women around the country.
Far-left feminist group, EMILY’s List, sent an intern to spy on this summit and to film most of our addresses. In doing so, the intern returned to the EMILY’s List “powers that be” and FALSELY reported that I called pro-choice women “freaks of nature.”
Of course, an EMILY’s List blogger wrote about it … and then a conservative columnist defended me … and then another columnist defended EMILY’s List while ONCE AGAIN FALSELY QUOTING me this week.
So, I’m concluding that one of 2 things happened. Either the intern delivered her account of the summit straight from memory and the “powers that be” didn’t take the time to fact check the video, or the intern chose to purposefully malign me, and the “powers that be” didn’t care.
How about “C. All of the above”. To clarify, the whole “freak of nature” quote came from Kathryn Jean Lopez, conservative writer for National Review who said:
I believe this is the year the feminist lie was official up. This is the year that the media was forced to start to recognize it. This is the year they couldn’t quite marginalize, couldn’t quite treat the conservative female as an anomaly or freak of nature.
Not to put it too crassly, but liberal feminism, in truth, is the freak of nature. Inasmuch as it was driven home that it was the way women were and wanted to be.
So, not only was the source of the quote incorrect, but the MEANING of the quote was so largely misinterpreted, that this either HAD to have been done on purpose, or the EMILY’S LIST INTERN IS AN IDIOT.
I was also smeared for suggesting that there is nothing wrong with a woman wanting to be a mother. EMILY’s List wrote that I insulted women who wanted to go to Ivy League institutions and have a successful career before starting a family.
