NEW! Eric Cantor’s Crew Rushing “Left-Wing Feminist Museum” To Vote

UPDATES MAY 7, 2014! US House today approves here groundwork for left-wing women’s museum opposed by Concerned Women for America and Phyllis Schlafly. Kudos to Maryland’s Andy Harris for standing against the herd! Read AIM’s Cliff Kincaid on “House Vote on Museum to Honor Red Feminist” here. Heritage Action urged “’NO’ on the Commission to Study National Women’s History Museum” here calling it one of their “House Key Votes.” Daniel Horowitz adds “Kudos to @TeamBachmann for requesting a roll call vote on the left wing museum.” Eric Cantor’s railroad provided the engine for House approval: just a taste of what conservatives can expect from the presumptive next Speaker.

“While the idea of celebrating women is admirable, the content of such a museum would [be] a shrine to the leftist ideology and would not provide an accurate portrayal of American women.”   —Concerned Women for America

The indefatigable Daniel Horowitz asks here in his RedState post yesterday “Why are Republicans Promoting a Left-Wing Feminist Museum?”

“One of the biggest obstacles to restoring our constitutional Republic is the inherent advantage the progressives enjoy inside of our culture.  Their monopoly on media, entertainment, and education has given radicals the opportunity to slowly, yet relentlessly, introduce extreme ideas into the mainstream with a high degree of success.  The least we can do as conservatives is not  use our majority to gratuitously grant the feminist movement more leverage to promote leftwing propaganda in our nation’s capitol under the guise of celebrating famous women.
 Undoubtedly, building a museum dedicated to studying the contributions of prominent American woman is an interesting endeavor, especially when funded by private contributions.  But one glance at the website of the NWHM [National Women’s History Museum] makes it clear that this particular outfit will be used as a conduit to promote general liberal causes like most other feminist ‘women’s’ organizations.  They’ve already paid homage to Sandra Fluke, which is not surprising because they are allied with a whole array of left-wing women’s groups.”  (Highlighting Forum’s)

Explains Madison Project’s Horowitz–

“This bill was already introduced during the Pelosi Congress in 2009 and passed by voice vote!  It was only stopped in the Senate because Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) placed a hold on the bill.
Leadership plans to bring the bill to the floor next week under suspension.  The bill was rushed to the floor by Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA).   Once this museum is constructed and granted access to the national mall, there is no way it will not grow into a left-wing bastion and it is unlikely that it will not become a recipient of federal funds when Democrats are in control of Congress.  If this is how Eric Cantor uses the majority in the House, why should we promote him to the position of Speaker?”  (Highlighting Forum’s)

Read all of Horowitz’ post here to see 15 Republicans who are sponsoring this measure.

Cari Kelly of Heritage Action declares in her “Leftist Feminist Propaganda on the National Mall?” here

“While NWHM claims a nonpartisan agenda, there is no mechanism in place to ensure that the museum is not used as a platform to promote liberal propaganda (even if that museum is still in its infancy). The women typically celebrated by federally monitored or federally commissioned institutions are of the ‘progressive era’ or the ‘sexual liberation movement’ (consider particularly the characters and events promulgated by Smithsonian institutions or nationalized educational programs). These figures glorify the elements of women’s history that have furthered disrespect for human life, destruction of the family unit and general harm to the wellbeing of women.”(Highlighting Forum’s)

What misguided pandering is behind the Cantor push?  The Hill’s Mike Lillis reported here–

“Some Democrats suggested GOP leaders are simply playing election-year politics with the museum bill. One leadership aide said the Republicans would embrace the proposal as a political effort to defuse the Democratic argument that their policy agenda is harmful to women.‘ They’re trying to reach out to people other than white males,’ the aide said. ‘They may try to latch onto it to show that they’re not complete Neanderthals.'” (Highlighting Forum’s

Does the House Majority Leader want to link GOP members with an organization that highlights Margaret Sanger?

This museum legislation lays the foundation for even more Beltway Boodle,  illustrating the growing divide between America’s “country class” and her “ruling class.”

Where is Eric Cantor’s sense of priorities in these perilous times? 

This scheme (HB 863 here and here) is a far cry from senator Jeff Sessions’ plea here that the GOP be the defender of American working men and women.
