Florida Congressman Smears Liberal Women

Congressman Allen West (R-FL) addressed a conservative women’s group, Women Impacting Nation, last week and accused Planned Parenthood, Code Pink, and other liberal women’s groups of “neutering American men,” causing “weakness,” implicating them in the growth of the United States debt.

Specifically, West said, “We need you to come in and lock shields, and strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you. To let these other women know on the other side – these planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness – to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient. That’s what we need you to do. Because if you don’t, then the debt will continue to grow…deficits will continue to grow?.” (watch video)

“Allen West has it all wrong. We don’t want dominance, we want equality,” said Feminist Majority Foundation President Eleanor Smeal.
