Pandering Anti-Family Politicians Abuse Children and FathersWritten by: Chris Print This Article

The first thing that may come to mind for many is that they are all Democrats. But that’s not nearly so important as that they are all politicians who curry favor with victim feminists and other women voters by engaging in father-bashing and supporting pro-child-abuse and pro-male-abuse legislation. Unfortunately for American families, especially children and their fathers, these politicians are all too happy to berate fathers. They encourage the abuse of children and their fathers in exchange for votes from the pro-child-abuse lobby consisting of disreputable organizations such as National Organization of Women (NOW) and the misleadingly named California Protective Parents Association. Such organizations are mostly comprised of feminists gone insane, but a vote is a vote for these politicians.
Obama Lambasts Fathers
When Obama was running for President, in June 2008 on Father’s Day he lambasted fathers with a vitriolic and insulting speech. During his speech, he said:
But we also need families to raise our children. We need fathers to realize that responsibility does not end at conception. We need them to realize that what makes you a man is not the ability to have a child – it’s the courage to raise one.
Mr. Obama, at best you are clueless. There are a lot of fathers who are going through hell to be a part of their children’s lives. They get kicked out of their homes based upon fraudulently acquired restraining orders obtained with no due process, tossed in jail on false accusations, bankrupted by outrageous legal fees caused by perjury against them, and treated as if they are nothing more than sperm donors with an attached bank account by you and the politicians like you. Alienating mothers, corrupt courts, biased CPS social workers, police panzies manipulated by the aforementioned parties, and people like you and your co-conspirator Joe Biden are doing all they can to make it impossible for many children to have a father in their lives.
Obama Calls for “Help for Mothers”
We need to help all the mothers out there who are raising these kids by themselves; the mothers who drop them off at school, go to work, pick up them up in the afternoon, work another shift, get dinner, make lunches, pay the bills, fix the house, and all the other things it takes both parents to do. So many of these women are doing a heroic job, but they need support. They need another parent. Their children need another parent. That’s what keeps their foundation strong. It’s what keeps the foundation of our country strong.
How are fathers as a group at fault for this? A few of them may have abandoned their families. But that’s not what is going on in most of the United States. Much or even most of the problems in “fatherless families” are caused by no-fault divorce and abusive legislation like VAWA that encourages women to file false domestic violence accusations against men and which is structured and enforced to avoid helping abused men. Severely compounding these problems are the broken and corrupt family court systems that are biased against men in many places in the US and “Child Protective Services” social workers who will not listen to fathers except to spin and distort everything they say to make them sound like abusers they are not.
Obama Claims Government Will “Meet Them Halfway”
The Obamanification continues:
And by the way – it’s a responsibility that also extends to Washington. Because if fathers are doing their part; if they’re taking our responsibilities seriously to be there for their children, and set high expectations for them, and instill in them a sense of excellence and empathy, then our government should meet them halfway.
Most fathers do their part of doing what is best for their children. Government “meets them halfway” by harassing them, violating their Constitutional rights, and falsely imprisoning them based upon not upon due process but instead upon false and unsubstantiated allegations of biased government workers and vindictive women who want to ruin their ex-spouses and keep their children from having fathers.
Joe Biden’s Abuse of Families: VAWA
Mr. Obama, your co-conspirator Joe Biden was the largely responsible for the unconstitutional and abusive legislation known as the Violence Against Women Act. Biden is proud of his record of violating the rights of American males and destroying families:
I consider the Violence Against Women Act the single most significant legislation that I’ve crafted during my 35-year tenure in the Senate.
Republicans Have Participated in Abuse of Families, Too
The Democrats are responsible for a lot of the destructive legislation, but Republicans have helped make this disaster, too. Republican President George W. Bush foolishly signed a renewal of VAWA on January 5, 2006, even though the five years of abuses enabled by that legislation had made it clear it was anti-family and un-American.
Anti-Family Legislation and Policies at State Level
The anti-father abuse and family destruction system isn’t limited to federal politicians. The states have their own share of pandering abusive politicians. Consider, for instance, California Democrat Jim Beall and his ill-considered AB 612 bill that he proposed to ban any and all discussion or consideration of the emotional child abuse known as parental alienation. NOW and its pro-child-abuse allies backed that legislation because it would give free reign for abusive women to alienate children against their fathers. Beall and his allies don’t want children to have fathers, they want children to be deprived of fathers, programmed to hate them, and for there to be zero consequences for alienating mothers who commit such emotional abuses against children.
VAWA and Restraining Order Abuses Committed on Mothers
Ironically, some of the unconstitutional and abusive tactics typically used against men are now being used against women. Occasionally, women get kicked out of their homes and banned from seeing their children based upon fraudulent restraining orders. Sometimes they get arrested based upon VAWA legal provisions, violations of fraudulent restraining orders, and failure to pay child support.
It’s a fact that as a percentage, more mothers are “deadbeat moms” not paying their child support than the percentage of fathers who are so-called “deadbeat dads.” But can you imagine what the self-righteous outrage from the victim feminists would be if TV producers were filming a series called “Malicious Moms” instead of “Deadbeat Dads”?
Sometimes abusive fathers alienate children against their mothers. When these things happen to women, the NOW crowd screams bloody murder and blames men for everything done wrong to women and children. These evil anti-family policies and unconstitutional laws are wrong regardless of which gender is being abused. NOW doesn’t seem to be able to comprehend that.
Obama Could Make a Difference, But Likely Will Not
Obama has reportedly advocated that American should “lead the world, by deed and by example”. That’s wonderful rhetoric, but the reality is that America sets very bad examples for the world in many areas that have nothing to do with warfare, torture, and international relations.
What kind of example has American set for families? Divorce is the norm rather than the exception. Fathers should be abused, falsely accused, and their rights taken away with no due process based upon unsubstantiated allegations. Children should be deprived of fathers and taught to hate them by their mothers. Boys should be demeaned for their gender and discriminated against in education to “level the playing field”. Consider as evidence that there are now significantly more women attending college than men:
It is fairly well known that women today outnumber men in American colleges. In 2003, there were 1.35 females for every male who graduated from a four-year college and 1.3 females for every male undergraduate. That contrasts with 1960, when there were 1.6 males for every female graduating from a U.S. four-year college and 1.55 males for every female undergraduate. How come this switch?
Debtor’s prisons are alive and well in the United States despite being banned long ago in most nations, with so-called “deadbeat dads” deemed to be worthy of prison time. Slavery is routinely approved by the government to crush fathers into financial oblivion while allowing their former wives to have better incomes and lifestyles and to alienate their children to hate the hand of the man who feeds them.
This is the America of the present. If this system had been forced on the US by a foreign power, I have no doubt that there would be blood running in the streets from an ongoing war against the foreign aggressor. But when Americans screw over other Americans illegally, that is apparently to be a role model for the rest of the world. Thanks so much for your guidance, Mr. Obama.
Obama is Out of Touch With Typical Fathers
Obama doesn’t understand the reality of fatherhood in the United States today. He lives in an artificial bubble into which victim feminism doesn’t interfere because his wife is not mentally ill and didn’t buy into the victim feminist husband-bashing and child-owning mentality like far too many American women have.
As President, Barack Obama is probably safe from false allegations of sexual abuse and domestic violence given how he’s surrounded by people and security cameras nearly all the time. Many other fathers wish they could be similarly protected from false allegations, but aren’t fortunate enough to have their own personal security forces protecting them.
Obama is not in touch with typical fathers and probably never will be. But he is in touch with Hollywood elite. There are some of them who have seen first-hand how horrible the family law system in the United States is and how it destroys fathers as a way to keep them from participating in their children’s lives as anything more than a money source.
Perhaps Barack Obama should make an effort to learn about real challenges of American fatherhood by consulting with a famous father who has been put through American family law hell. For starters, he should read Alec Baldwin’s book A Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce. (See our review of his book at Book Review: “A Promise To Ourselves” by Alec Baldwin.) Then he should invite Alex Baldwin over for dinner and discuss what Baldwin thinks is wrong with the American version of fatherhood and family law. Obama will get an earful of useful information from somebody who, despite his fame and fortune, is more in touch with what it is like for a typical father today than Obama will likely ever be on his own.
