Guy who accused Lisa Brown of "milking the vagina business" concern trolls women

by: Eric B.

Thu Aug 28, 2014 at 14:00:00 PM EDT

When Lisa Brown was picked as Mark Schauer's running mate, Nolan Finley wrote a column saying that she was still "milking the vagina business." The vagina business, as we all know, was the time that Brown and Barb Byrum were cut off from speaking in the House because Brown said that the men who served in the House at the time should be less concerned with what she does with her vagina. This was on the occasion of the House debating a bill to further restrict the right of women to have abortions. Since that time, as we all know, the same House, albeit with a slightly different membership, voted to approve Right to Life's rape insurance rider. Nolan Finley this morning wrote about last weekend's nomination of Bill Murphy as a pro-Life jurist.

So it is richly ironic that Schauer so ardently embraced the nomination of an anti-abortion Supreme Court candidate at last weekend’s state party convention.

In the week leading up to the convention, women party activists tried to derail the selection of appeals court Judge Bill Murphy for the Democratic ticket. Schauer rebuffed their pleas to choose a pro-choice candidate instead — they had former Macomb Prosecutor Carl Marlinga waiting in the wings.

Like most everything Nolan Finley writes, it's a column that never needed to be written. It's also a column that, given his past on this issue, that Nolan Finley shouldn't have written. But, he wrote it anyway, probably because he lacks the sense of decency and self-awareness to know that he had no business writing it.

Keep in mind that just last week, Finley wrote a column in which he said that Democrats were going to pick one real candidate for the state supreme court and one place holder on the ballot, a chump candidate who they expected was going to be on the receiving end of a good floor mopping. The real candidate, by the way, is Richard Bernstein. The chump is Bill Murphy. If that's true, Nolan Finley is alledging that Democrats planned to nominate one real candidate (Bernstein) and one sack of wheat (Murphy), but for some reason now hate women equally with the people actually voting to restrict access to abortion and who think that Hobby Lobby as an entity has religious beliefs because they hate the idea of women having sex because they nominated for state high court a guy they don't expect to win.

As to the Murphy nomination, I'll defer to people at the convention. I'm not a big fan of litmus tests for candidates, but I can certainly understand why people are less than thrilled with this guy as a candidate. I just don't think Nolan Finley is the guy to bring this up, because he's shameless and dishonest about how he does it.

I'll be a good environmentalist and recycle what I wrote about Finley (0.00 / 0)
Original here.
"There is only one thing more useful in politics than having the right friends, and that is having the right enemies."  Nolan Finley is one of the right enemies for Lisa Brown, and Finley just volunteered for the position.
And, yes, what he wrote was pure concern trolling.  All he wants to do is keep votes for the Democratic nominees down.  Also, he shows that he doesn't understand what the "war on women" is all about.  Of course, it's hard to get a man to understand something if his salary depends on his not understanding it.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

I'll glady vote for a pro-life dem (0.00 / 2)
saving children makes a whole lot more sense than saving wolves - it is pretty hard to reconcile that thought process.

the real war on women and the family is economic where abortion is made available for economic reasons. present policy says women and families - you can't afford that child - abort it.

this policy of defining abortion some kind of equality comes from humanity haters. of course, the folks that push it probably have real low self-esteem and hate themselves as well.

how about just raising incomes? why has the present democratic party abandoned the field on the economy? why do they pretend the unemployment rate is 7%. young women I talk to making $8 and hours(much less for waitresses) want to know.

America either revives its industrial base or it dies. There is no future for people in a post industrial America.  

So, is restricting abortion part of the LaRouche platform, too? (4.00 / 2)

Loony Lyndon's cult offers a full spectrum of off-the-wall political beliefs (4.00 / 2)
Sexism, homophobia, racism, anti-Semitism, global warming denial, and some of the hoariest conspiracy theories in existence.

Hat tip: Chip Berlet, who took on the difficult job of summarizing the worst of La Roucheism.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

i repeat: I'll be glad to have a pro-life dem to vote for (0.00 / 1)
it wasn't LaRouche that put a pro-life dem on the supreme court ticket, it was Mark Schauer. I approve of his actions. If you don't then take it up with him.

poor vince. he just can't stand anyone with an opposing viewpoint (0.00 / 3)
I didn't say I was for restricting abortion. I said I am for removing any economic reason for a woman not to bring a child into the world. Woman should feel secure that she can economically afford to have children. It is an odd idea that abortion is empowerment. Let's raise women's income and remove the economic need for abortion. that's empowerment

I don't know what the LaRouche view is on abortion and I don't care what it is. Fell free to ask him what his views are. Generally speaking though, LaRouche tends to be hard on fascists and racists and it is well know that Margaret Sanger, the found of the birth control league, later to be renamed as Planned parenthood, had an ideological connection to many third- Reich personalities. Belief in eugenics was the tie that bound them. In her eugenics zeal Sanger was also known to preach to the KKK the value of abortion availability for blacks.

I'm glad Mark Schauer made sure there was some abortion balance on the supreme court ticket. we need much more of that and maybe it is a early sign the party is going to throw the Obama zombies under the bus. They, and their feckless leader Obama sure ain't bringing any votes into the party.

America either revives its industrial base or it dies. There is no future for people in a post industrial America.
