New Townhall Column: Female Establishment Bosses Women Who Reject Radical Feminism

I’ve penned a new column at Townhall.com called “”All-Inclusive” Female Establishment Bosses Women Who Reject Radical Feminism.”

Here’s an excerpt:

Radical feminism is passé and in disarray. From pushing the wage gap myth to dismissing personal responsibility, our leftist sistas are clueless about true women’s rights.

How did birth control access become the only issue women care about? Who decided it was acceptable to destroy human life? More importantly, why should we look to big government policies to advance our gender?

Now, the feministas are going after Hollywood actresses.

In an interview for the May 2014 U.K. issue of Harper’s Bazaar, actress Kirsten Dunst defied the status quo and did the unthinkable: she came out against blurring gender differences!

“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued,” she says. “We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a manto be a man and a womanto be a woman. That’s why relationships work…”Unsurprisingly, these words weren’t well-received by radical feminists.

Jezebel writer Erin Gloria Ryan penned a blog post titled “Kirsten Dunst Thinks Ladies In Relationships Should Wife the F*** Out” calling Dunst “dumb” for not subscribing to feminist group think:

“I’m not going to couch this much because Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s kind of dumb about it, just as I wouldn’t be surprised if Gloria Steinem sucked at convincingly andheartbreakingly playing a mysteriousoversexed teen who kills herself in a Sofia Coppola movie. So, you know.”Uproxx’s Stacey Ritzen called Dunst an “insufferable person” for her refreshing comments on femininity.

Classy.

This behavior isn’t new. The female establishment has great disdain for dissent and independent views, specifically conservative and libertarian views.

Join the #LadyGang: Pictures and Video from The Dana Show

Last week, I had the great pleasure of appearing on The Dana Show on The Blaze alongside my sister Anna Maria and gal pals Ashe Schow, Ashley Sewell, Bethany Bowra, and Lauren Luxenburg. This was my first time on TV–an experience I will forever cherish.

We went on Dana Loesch’s show to discuss REAL women’s issues beyond birth control and abortion. I was one of six panelists on the program. We were also joined by an all-female studio audience. (Conservatives hate women? WRONG.)

Here’s more about the program from The Blaze:

Dana Loesch has been an outspoken critic of the so-called “war on women” since its inception, saying Democrats are conflating actual rights with the non-existent right to have other people pay for your birth control.

On her Blaze TV show Friday, Loesch brought in an audience full of women to weigh in on the controversy, finishing the show with a mock “pajama party” where she read some of the hate mail she received this week.

“The female resistance marches on,” she said. “We’re bringing the war on women to them.”

One of Loesch’s main issues with the “war on women” was that it relied on women to “accept premises at face value.”

Women were essentially told, she said: “If we don’t pass healthcare we’re going to starve because we don’t have birth control for sexual recreation purposes! Old, white, Republican men [will] physically block our access to contraceptives by refusing to pay for them! And women, we have to vote for Barack Obama if we want the right to vote! Forget that we already have it. We need it again!”

Here are some more pictures from the show:

Proud to Be An American and Conservative of Lithuanian Descent

Why am I conservative? I credit it to my Lithuanian heritage. Check out my first piece in LTUWorld below:

In the realm of politics, people are drawn to a cause by something greater than themselves. Some people are driven by issues, hardships, egos, or self-discoveries. In my case, I grew interested in politics – particularly American conservatism – because of my heritage and family history.

I belong to the group of nearly one million Americans claiming partial Lithuanian descent. As a first-generation American, I honor my Lithuanian roots in all that I do – particularly politics.

My family left Lithuania when it was occupied by the former Soviet Union. After spending two months in Italy, they came to America in January 1986. Both of my parents have roots in Lithuania. My father’s side is comprised of Litvaks (Lithuanian Jews), while my mother’s side is comprised of Lithuanian Catholics.

Both sides of my family were negatively affected by Soviet policies. On my mother’s side, her father -my grandfather Juozas Keblys – was imprisoned in one of Josef Stalin’s gulags at the Belomor Canal for 18 months for owning property and being Catholic. On my dad’s side, he and his family were castigated and discriminated against for being Jewish. My family hated seeing Lithuania suffer under socialism. As a result, they came to America to escape the nightmare plaguing their homeland.

My parents are ardent anti-communists who despise collectivism, so naturally they identified with American conservatism once they got here. They liked the notion of private property, free enterprise, constitutional rights, and religious liberty – concepts forbidden and discouraged in then-Soviet occupied Lithuania. As a result, their conservative views were passed down to me and my sister.

As a child, I was exposed to Lithuanian culture and customs. Whether it was yearly trips to the Lithuanian Fair in Los Angeles every October or mushroom hunting in the woods during summers, I learned to appreciate my Baltic roots. There was no escaping amber jewelry, cepelinai, or stories from the Old Country. In fact, I was able to experience Lithuania firsthand for three weeks when I was eight. I visited Vilnius, Klaipeda, Neringa, and Palanga; I also met relatives and explored old historical sites. (I hope to visit Lietuva again soon!)

As a young activist working in conservative politics, I’ve successfully made a name for myself by sharing my family’s story. Sadly, many Americans underestimate the rights and opportunities afforded to them here. As a result, I use the platform I have to encourage others to preserve America’s timeless values and heritage.
George Santayana famously opined, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” I speak out against socialism in America because it inflicted harm onto my family and millions of others. I tell my family’s story to demonstrate why conservative values – not socialist ones – best ensure freedom and happiness.

Some “Lithuanians” were not happy that one can be conservative and of Lithuanian descent.
ltu scumYou can read more on this guy’s craziness here on Storify.

The Left is extraordinarily vicious when it comes to those boasting dissenting viewpoints.

I will continue to speak out and tell my family’s story.

‘We Are the Storytellers”: Verily Magazine Launch Party in Washington, D.C.

We Are the Storytellers Invitation

This past Wednesday, my sister Anna Maria and I had the pleasure of attending Verily Magazine’s D.C. launch party at A Bar Lounge in Foggy Bottom.

Verily is a new magazine catering to strong, virtuous, empowered women. It seeks to set itself apart from mainstream women’s magazines that spout off radical feminist, hypersexualized platitudes. Its tagline reads, “Be less of who you should be, more of who you are.”

(You can read my Townhall.com column about it.)

The theme of the occasion was “We Are the Storytellers.”

Esteemed guests  were Fox News Contributor Kirsten Powers, The Transom’s Ben Domenech, and American Enterprise Institute’s Christina Hoff Sommers. Countless young professionals from conservative organizations and fashion blogs also gathered to hear and learn more about Verily.

Below are some pictures from the event:

Smart Girls Are Armed, Conservative, and Fabulous: My “Youth in Action” Interview

smart girl

Teen conservative and Smart Girl Politics activist Bethany Bowra (@bethanybowra) interviewed me for the latest installment of Smart Girl Politics’ “Youth in Action” series profiling young conservative female activists. Those of you who know me are familiar with my hold-no-prisoners approach to conservative politics, anti-Communist tendencies, and desire to lure in more young people to our movement.

I hope my thoughts and sentiments in this interview inspire other freedom-loving youngsters to speak out and reject collectivism. Without a doubt, we must encourage more young conservatives…especially young conservative females.

Enjoy!

While Planned Parenthood and Democrat women in Congress claim to speak for all women, these young women have something to say about that. Contrary to popular belief, those groups do not speak for all young women— many young women my age have views that are quite the opposite. Below is my interview with conservative activist, Gabriella Hoffman!

Why did you get involved in politics?

I got involved in conservative politics because of my parents. My mother and my father are Lithuanian immigrants who escaped from Soviet communism 27 years ago. The Left’s policies remind them too much of the Old Country, so conservatism came naturally to them. Their stories and perspective on life really brought me to conservatism. Both sides of my family suffered immensely in the former Soviet Union. I’m in this fight to honor their memories and remind people that freedom must be safeguarded for future generations to come.

How did you get involved?

In 2006 when I was 15, I started writing a column in a local Orange County, CA community paper, The Coto Voice, called “Teen Beat.” I maintained this column for three years. I primarily focused on topics ranging from volunteering in high school to upholding traditional values. After I graduated from high school and moved onto college, I began to write about politics for The California Review, the conservative paper at UC-San Diego. From there, I went onto running a YAF chapter and hosting David Horowitz on campus- an event which landed on national news. After the event garnered a lot of attention, I started working for The Rick Amato Show as an Executive Assistant and landed a coveted role at Eagle Forum of San Diego as the Director of Youth Outreach.  I also started blogging for various websites and publications.

What issues have you been focused on since you became active?

I’m a firm believer in sound conservatism (social and fiscal conservatism), and I also believe in strong national defense. During my time at UC-San Diego, I heavily focused on support for Israel (I have family there and support a healthy U.S.-Israel relationship) and exposing militant leftists on campus. I also exposed radical feminism and openly condemned the Vagina Monologues. Now, I concentrate on a plethora of issues ranging from traditional values to Israel advocacy to media/leftist/campus bias to free enterprise.

Earth to Generation Y: You’ve Been Cheated By Obama’s Administration

555306_4466860913583_1041459048_n

Last Saturday, I had the privilege of speaking at Maryland Conservative Action Network’s “Turning the Tides” conference in Annapolis, MD alongside three other young panelists – Brandon Cooper, Brian Meshkin, and Trae Lewis.

Our generation will be hardest hit by Obama’s disastrous economic policies. Therefore, it’s imperative that conservatives bolster their numbers with more young people. Conservatism, not a diluted version of it, will entice people to our side. Any attempts to abandon conservatism will lead to more elections lost and less voter turnout.

Those in attendance enjoyed hearing from us on the panel. Everyone gave wonderful speeches.

My speech beings at the 19:28 mark.  Let me know what you think!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan

Media Alert: Counter Cultured’s Anna Maria Hoffman and Blogger/Actress Kira Davis To Appear on Dr. Phil Show

Today, my sister Anna Maria Hoffman (founder/editor of conservative socio-political blog Counter Cultured) and our friend Kira Davis (blogger/actress/commentator) are taping a segment about “slut shaming” on The Dr. Phil Show. The show will air on Friday.  I ask that you pray for them and have them in your thoughts. They will be going up against the “YouTube Slut” and a young feminist who uses vulgarity to advance her message. I look forward to Anna Maria and Kira demolishing their arguments.

Here is more about the show as listed on Dr. Phil’s website:

Friday – January 18, 2013

Girls Who Bash Girls Who Dress Sexy

Dr. Phil takes on the hot-button topic of what some are calling “slut-shaming” — when young women are taunted and harassed, often online, for their sexual behavior, such as having casual sex, having more than one sexual partner or dressing provocatively. This form of bullying, like others, can lead to tragic consequences. Fifteen-year-old Felicia Garcia sent her last tweet, “I cant, im done, I give up,” before jumping in front of a train, while many of her classmates looked on. Friends of the freshman say she was tormented by bullies for alleged sexual encounters with football players. Did her classmates go too far? And, what can parents and students do to prevent another senseless act? Grab your teen, sit them down and watch this powerful Dr. Phil together!
