Talk about misogyny, talk about stupid, talk about bashing women. Yes, let’s put women in a cage and an orange jumpsuit and make it look like Hillary Clinton, then let’s get all the kids to throw water balloons at her. So what we have here is a Republican thought process that again wants:
- Women in Cages
- Women in Prison
- Men/Boys Throwing Things At Women
- Humiliation of Women
- Beating Women
Some in the crowd were laughing and cheering as the float rolled by, but others could be heard moaning and grumbling that it was “over the top” or “a bit too much.”
“It was my idea,” Kyle Julin of Manilla said. “Pretty much me and Josh (Reetz). It took us about a day-and-a-half to build.”
Julin said he, Reetz and Adam Corky (Clinton impersonator) are not affiliated with any official political organization. Julin said he’s an independent and as of March 2014 Reetz was a registered Democrat.
Julin said the crew had been throwing around the idea of entering the parade for awhile.
“Probably a month ago we joked around about it, and at the beginning of last week we decided to do it,” Julin said. We started on it Wednesday night.”
Julin said all the feedback he’s heard has been positive.
Oh yes, I’m sure everyone gave positive feedback to your statement. I’m sure the women in that town are mostly afraid of their men and are either living in cages back home or barefoot and pregnant and slaving for their men in the kitchen.
So, what did the local Republicans think?
Craig Williams, chairman of the Carroll County Republicans, said his organization had nothing to do with the float, but did promote photos of it on FaceBook.
“I probably wouldn’t have done that myself, but I can certainly understand some frustrations from people over all the illegal things (Clinton) has done,” Williams said. “I don’t feel it was offensive to women. It could have been anybody in there anyone who got away with what she did.”
Oh listen to foolish Craig Williams, he wouldn’t have done it himself, because you know most Republicans are cowards, but he promoted it on Facebook because you know, all the illegal things Hillary has done. Yes, he supportted it, he was just too much of a coward to stand up and say so.
So, what did the democrats say about it?
Tim Tracy, chairman of the Carroll County Democrats, said demonstrations like this don’t help things in an already charged political climate.
“The Carroll County Democrats participated in the Arcadia celebration in an appropriate and dignified manner,” Tracy said. “We saw a lot of children along the parade route. Children aren’t politically savvy. It’s sad to imagine that some of them may have been wondering why they were being mean to that lady and throwing things at her.”
Another woman, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of repercussions at work, said the whole thing just made her feel sad.
“I’m glad my grandkids weren’t there to see it,” she said. “Here we have what could be the first woman president in our history — and to treat her like that — I thought was disrespectful to her and disrespectful to women.”
The woman wishing to remain anonymous was probably too afraid to say anything because you know, women are mistreated in Arcadia Iowa, so they are probably too afraid to stand up to those old fart Republican cowards.
Suffice it to say, I doubt many will consider Arcadia Iowa a place to visit in the future, for its a cesspool of cowardly men. Arcadia Iowa, population 484, a nice place — to avoid like the plague.
