16 “conservative” females have penned an open letter demanding Donald Trump fire his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, for the alleged battery of reporter Michelle Fields. A quick glance at the names on the list and their colluding employers leaves little doubt about the real target of the women’s collective outrage.
The press is to have an adversarial, yet civil approach to those in, or running, for elected office. Never in this line of work is it acceptable to respond to reasonable and legitimate questioning with use of physical force. The photographs, audio, videos, and witness accounts documenting the treatment of Michelle Fields by Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, are inexcusable and unprofessional. Donald Trump should immediately remove Lewandowski from his campaign. However unlike the Trump campaign, we believe in making a statement on the record to clearly highlight the difference between right and wrong.

That these female media personalities have written such an embarrassing letter to Trump is astonishing. If the signatories feel this minor incident with Fields is offensive, the ones who claim to be journalists should leave the profession, while academic stalwarts like Christina Hoff Sommers should pronounce feminism dead, once and for all. Adding her name to this politically inspired ploy to take down a Presidential candidate undermines Sommers’ decades-long career as a fighter against “gender-based feminism.”
This sisterhood of delicate flowers has not only suggested female reporters are inferior to their male counterparts, as men get roughed up in the field more than women, (see video), they have used the gender card to put themselves in a protected class. How leftist of them.
Fields crossed the line. She didn’t follow protocol and came dangerously close to a Secret Service protected presidential candidate, but she has a vagina so she’s the victim?
Fields and her feminist posse, led by Meghan McCain, Dana Loesch, Katie Pavlich, and S E Cupp have now made it so other female reporters may not be allowed within earshot of a candidate. Why should any public person or their security detail take a chance with a female reporter if it becomes ‘either you give me an interview or I’ll ruin your career?’
Moreover, the woman the media members are defending, Michelle Fields, is an “actress” according to an IMDB bio, and has a history of claiming she was assaulted by individuals ranging from former Congressman Allen West to NYPD police officers to Robert Kennedy, Jr. Fields once complained Kennedy got “handsy with her.”
Besides shooting themselves and their sister reporters in the foot, the letter reads as if it was written during happy hour. How are “photographs, audio, videos, and witness accounts” of the interaction between Fields and Lewandowski “inexcusable and unprofessional?”
I can only hope the trend continues. The most satisfying part of this election cycle is that the mask has finally been ripped off a number of high-profile female pundits on the right; showing them to be little more than a clique of shrill, attention-seeking, groupthink Heathers.
