Thanks to Charlie Sykes for reminding us that Scott Walker is not the only target in the June 5 Wisconsin recall elections:
Other conservative moms have been subjected sexist attacks, but few have had to endure the volume of vile epithets raw hate directed at Becky. She has had to put up with the most despicable personal slurs – about her fight with cancer, her children, and her gender– knowing that liberals and the media will simply look the other way.
Despite that, Rebecca is standing strong.
And it’s time to stand with her.
Take a moment to think about what is at stake here.
Rebecca Kleefisch is a powerful, independent professional woman, a compelling champion of conservative values and a tireless supporter of Governor Walker’s efforts to run Wisconsin around. Her efforts to bring business here have been single-minded, dogged, and have already begun to bear fruit.
And yet she faces the very real possibility of being recalled.
Democrats have figured out something that Republicans need to understand: Rebecca Kleefisch is a rising conservative star and they want to destroy her now, so they can get back to talking about the GOP’s “War on Women” without being distracted by effective and articulate conservative women like Becky.
This is a fight worth having. It’s one we have to win.
John Nolte notes Media Silent as Left Attacks Kids of WI Lt. Gov.:
Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is a wife, mother, and a cancer survivor. She’s currently being targeted for recall and by some of the ugliest personal attacks you’ll hear — at least until the left launches the next one.
Here’s a sample of the noxious insults being hurled at Kleefisch (language warning):
