It looks like the newly-crowned Miss USA was given the proper smack down for actually speaking the truth rather than kowtowing to the left.
Story. During the question and answer portion of the Miss USA contest last night, Miss Washington D.C. answered questions about healthcare and feminism in very truthful and honest ways. Of course, her HONEST answers made the left’s heads explode across the country. From The Washington Post:
Then Miss D.C. stepped up to answer a question about the most currently contentious subject in the country: “Do you think affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege, and why?”
McCullough, a 25-year-old scientist who works at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, tied in her own experience to her answer. “I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” she said. “As a government employee, I am granted health care. And I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs. So therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs to all the American citizens worldwide.”
While healthcare shouldn’t actually be tied to employment, that was a mess this country got into thanks to FDR, she was correct in her claim that healthcare is not a right.
The 2nd question that made the left’s minds explode was her answer on feminism. From USA Today:
For her final question, McCullough was asked whether she considered herself a feminist, responding that she preferred the term “equalist.”
“I try not to consider myself this die-hard, ‘I don’t care about men’ (type),” she said. “Women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace. Firsthand, I’ve witnessed the impact women have in leadership in the medical sciences as well as in office environments.”
Miss D.C. gave another honest answer because women ARE equal to men in the United States and have been for a very long time. Feminists today don’t want equality, they want special treatment.
Walk back. Today Miss USA was on Good Morning America where she promptly walked back her statements. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon:
“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” she said at the pageant. “As a government employee, I am granted health care. And I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs. So therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs to all worldwide.”
She also walked back her comments that women are equal:
“For me, where I work at, equalism is more of a term, no matter your gender, you’re still given the same accolades for your work. I don’t want anyone to look at it as if I’m not all for women’s rights, because I am. We deserve a lot when it comes to opportunity in the workplace as well as just like leadership positions.”
Why this matters? Once again, the left proves that WOMEN are not allowed to speak their minds or believe in something that is different from what the left believes in. It’s outrageous than anyone decided to slam Miss USA for her OPINION, especially one that’s essentially correct based on facts.
This is why the country is so dumbed down. Whenever someone actually speaks the truth, the left and main stream media immediately try to crush them in order to continue suppressing the truth.
