David Axelrod’s war on Mormon women?

David Axelrod’s war on Mormon women?

That’s what David Axelrod tweeted then quickly deleted, as reported at The Atlantic:

Obama strategist David Axelrod tweeted a not-quite-decipherable message Monday that included a link to a story about Mormon women being erroneously barred from some official ceremonies because they were menstruating. Then he deleted the tweet. What does it all mean?!

Wring URS. This is the Medicare story,” Axelrod tweeted at 2:36p.m. with a link to the Salt Lake Tribune story, “Menstruating Mormons barred from temple proxy baptisms?”  In that story, Peggy Fletcher Stack, reports:

Mormon feminists recently learned that some young women were wrongly blocked from doing LDS proxy baptisms – which include wearing all-white clothing and being fully immersed in water – because they were menstruating… Trouble is, such a ban is bogus.

Fuzzy calls Axelrod a Sicko!

What does it all mean?

The reference to Medicare may relate to Romney’s statement yesterday that he would not accept Medicare even though he turned 65, so Axelrod appears to have been making some sort of joke related to health care for Mormon women.

Any other explanations?

“Any other explanations?”

Nope. “Sickos” just about sums it all up.

I might just add “arrogant.”

Oh, and by the way, Carbonite is down over 5% and set a new 52-week low … on a good day for NASDAQ … curious, isn’t it?

    Wow … 15 minutes to go, NASDAQ is up 50 points and Carbonite is down almost 7%.

    Starting a “Friends of Friend” support group.

axlerod is a douche. only explanation that fits.

Maybe it’s a Muslim thing …

The [Australian] Supreme Court of the ACT has stepped into a bitter dispute over whether a devout Muslim’s three sons should each inherit twice as much as her daughters on the grounds that “one boy is equal to two girls“.

    Squires in reply to Neo. | March 13, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    Islam does not hold that “one boy is equal to two girls”. Nowhere will you find that in the Koran!

    (If you find that Allah declares a female’s testimony to be worth half that of a man’s or that her inheritance should be one half of what a male might receive, that is a different matter. As Muhammad himself taught us, after all, pointing to these declarations as clear evidence, women are “deficient in intelligence and religion”. A completely different statement, as you can see clearly.)

Sorry, guys, but this is part of the Obama plan to beat Romney:
Attack his Mormon religion.

Axelrod just leaked it.

Mark my words. If Romney gets the nomination, there will be a relentless stream of anti-Mormon ads and articles.
That’s how the dirty left rolls.

    You can say that again, and again, and…

    The Constitution says there should be “No Religious Test” for any office in the land. The Democrats will be violating the Constitution systematically and tactically on this one.

    Not to mention, the entire Mormon church will obligatorily be called “RACISTS!” because of previous religious rules and such…

    By the time the Democrats are done with Romney and everyone else affiliated with them, I would not be surprised if Utah considers its own “declaration of independence” from the United States…

      The Mormon Church will be vilified over its past rules, yet Senator Byrd and the entire Democratic Party get a pass on their deadly and vile racism. It’s going to be ugly. I said that Obama would set race relations back 40 years, if elected. It’s that and more.

    There is already a really horrible democrat attack ad, that the Utah democrats have condemned, floating around the internet. It calls the entire Morman religion racist. I fully expect Axelrod to use it and everything else he can against Romney. Any of our candidates will have claims of racism thrown in their face.
    That is why Breitbart’s work on revealing Derrick Bell, critical race theory, the ties to the Black Panthers, etc., as well as whatever else will be coming out, is so important. It turns the tables on Obama and his cronies. Now we are looking at their racist ties.

And I stand by it 🙂 Attacking someone’s (peaceful) relgion is sick, spreading fear and unease based on someone’s (peaceful) religion is sick.

URS, according to Bing’s top results, is likely the Utah Retirement Systems. Unsure why he spelled “ring” as “wring” unless it’s a case of drunk tweeting.

… Axelrod appears to have been making some sort of joke related to health care for Mormon women.

And that’s just the warm-up act; the real party will start this Fall when Axelrod turns his sights on Bishop Romney and Church of LDS’s historical relationship with black folks.

Oh, c’mon…!!! This is typical Collectivist stuff.

I’ve NEVER met Conservatives who tell minority jokes and talk about minority members in hateful ways.

I am sometimes mortified to hear so-called “Liberals” in their more unguarded moments. Some of the worst bigots I’ve ever met were flaming “Liberals”.

    I’ve done it.
    course I also do it to all people/religions/etc….and my biggest target is myself.
    I make fun of myself more than anything, being disabled I have a target rich environment to deal with.
    but I am equal opportunity heckler.
    I also don’t say I;ve never done it nor do I pretend I am perfect.

      Ragspierre in reply to dmacleo. | March 13, 2012 at 3:57 pm

      But do you use hateful expletives? The people to whom I refer do. Freely…when they think they can. Telling Irish jokes (I’m Scots-Irish) is not what I’m talking about.

It was deleted because the demographics are still being studied.

It appears some female Mormon Preventative Reproductive Rights activists still may vote Romney…

Mormon women:

Tall vs. short
Brunette vs. blonde
Single vs. married
Full figured vs. athletic

Tall Brunette Single Full figured vs. Short Blonde Married Athletic?

MUST.FIND.CONFLICT…..

In other Romney news – He’s decided not to ask Santorum to be his running mate because Santorum’s not conservative enough.

Link

Proof of Romney’s liberalism right there. Liberals live in an alternate opposite reality where up is down, black is white..

“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life.

If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

Joseph Stalin

Given that Santorum was a supporter of Arlen Specter and called on pro-union Democrats to cross over and vote Republican for him when he couldn’t find enough Republicans to put him over the top, one might have reason to doubt his conservative credentials.

DINORightMarie | March 13, 2012 at 3:17 pm

As some noted above, Axelrod just exposed himself…er, that is, his oppo research plans. 😉

He has a HUGE collection on Romney, and he is just itching, DYING to let loose and use it. More proof that OFA, Obama – the leftist prog machine – really, Really WANTS Romney to be the nominee.

They have been holding on for a long time. Axelrod just managed to accidentally leak…..harumph, I mean reveal…..urg! He is being accidentally transparent! 😀

One fails to see how Mormon religious rituals have anything to do with Medicare. Unless it’s evidence that Axelrod is looking for some way to make Mormonism a campaign issue.

    My guess is that Axelrod wants to use women’s rights as a (phony) election issue. Defenses of religious freedom will be framed as defense of women, as will criticisms of Obama’s overreaching social programs.

    Maybe Axelrod’s first instinct was that he had come upon the ingredients of an attack ad, but then he thought better of it and deleted the tweet.

My explanation is that the linked story has nothing to do with the tweet. He had copied the URL for the Mormon story to be used in an email or another tweet but pasted it carelessly into the one about Medicare. Another way this happens is if he attempted to copy the URL for the Medicare story but hit the wrong key combination. He then pasted the URL still on his clipboard from earlier activity.

Do we really need an explanation? The left can’t stand religious women or even aspiring religious women. We must submit and worship at the altar of Gloria Steinem. The sisterhood just can’t understand the freedom that is found in traditional values. They are insecure, so they resort to attacking thise who are different. (When I speak of the sisterhood I include men like David Axelrod because it is more an ideology that includes all who think they know best for women. They must save us from ourselves. Somehow they think saving us from a voluntary association by coercion is the answer. I suppose this is a form of humanitarian tyranny).

    If the left comes out full force with all of their nastiness and ugliness towards traditional women, it will benefit the republicans because it will nullify the differences between mormons and other christians (politically speaking). Sort of like how an alien invasion could unite the world.

    ella8 in reply to ella8. | March 13, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Note to Hillary, you are the extremist trying to control women’s lives. I love baking cookies!

TMI but women routinely have to reschedule if they are menstrating the day of their annual gyn exam. Between wearing white and being immersed in water, it sounds more of a practical rule IF true.

I think he pressed the wrong button, Weinerlike, intending to send this message to one of his guys but blasting it out to everyone by mistake. Why send a link to the Mormon story one of his people with the reference to Medicare? Probably another mistake. The potential good news here is that before this campaign is over, someone important is going to make a disastrous error in Tweeting. Let’s hope it’s Axelrod.

The decision may not be made on interpretation of the Koran but the actual Will and the ACT laws.

I believe it will not be changed . The mother’s thinking may or may not be wrong ‘islamically ‘ but it is HER thinking.

It is what she wanted & it was her money.

BannedbytheGuardian | March 14, 2012 at 1:57 am

Above is to

Neo & Squires the Muslim earlier .

I think Axelrod had a moment of cognitive awareness here (although the Obama campaign is clearly about wedge issues concerning religious tyranny among Americans who – sadly – still ‘cling to religion” (as Marx said, you know, religion is the ‘opiate of the masses’) and an imagined lack of access to contraceptives – introduced ala the grocery delivery boy Georgie Stephonapolous in one of the earlier GOP debates).

Actually – the Obama campaign’s first line of defense will be to disenfranchise voters who have IDs to prove who they are. The second defense will be to nullify all laws made (as in the continuing Wisconsin debacle where one after the other liberal Madison judge and AFSCME (government employees – OK) organizers seeks to nullify and disenfranchise the majority who voted in a Governor two years ago and the laws enacted by the majority elected Legislature two years ago.

The third line of defense will be going after religion. It has started with the Catholics. It is on the horizon for Mormons. Obama has been very clear about his lack of honest allegiance to Israel.

What made Axelrod delete the tweet? Orthodox Jews have ‘menstruating women” rules. So does the Islam faith:

http://islamqa.info/en/ref/33649

What if we taught our 7th and 8th graders about this in the USA public school curriculum? I imagine a lot of people would be shifting quite a few allegiances or opinions.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if instead we could teach the historical context operating in all civilizations regarding religious dogma and the matter of CHOICE that we all have to adhere – or not adhere – to either the beauty of or tyranny of dogma?
