American women won the right to vote a century ago this month. Yet many have overlooked this historic moment, even gaslighting the efforts of the suffragettes, blaming them for not being inclusive enough. This while the presidential election approaches and mob rule has relentlessly attempted to beat the democratic process into submission to its brutal will.
Everywhere women look, they are being told what it means to be one, and the term itself continued to be redefined to suit goals that seem to have little to do with womanhood. As the culture war rages on, women everywhere are being told what it means to be "woman"—or per the new terminology, "individual with a cervix."
Amid the civil unrest ravaging our cities, a "fearless" woman is defined by the left as she who strips down and lowers herself to a full-frontal face-off with armed law enforcement.
They define a "good mother" as one who forms a human barricade to protect the anti-fascist youth. And for the left, a selfless millennial is she who submits to the draconian pandemic policies placed on the public so as not to "kill Grandma," while our elderly are dying of broken hearts in isolation.
Leftists vilify the homemaker and the traditional family, but glorify the woman in the workplace and the liberated feminist. Despite what liberal doctrine dictates, conservative women have subverted the know-your-place narrative.
However, what the left would call a "submissive" housewife can both set the dinner table and sit at the roundtable. She can be a woman of the house and a woman of the House. Conservative women have proven this again and again.
The idea of the Republican Motherhood was invented postbellum of the American Revolution as enlightened women nurtured and instilled patriotic values in their sons and daughters—raising a new republic. Women's spheres of influence were not just relegated to the household, but bled into politics.
As we, today, face the redefining of gender and human life itself, the modern-day mother is the backbone of society, the bosom that cradles, and the womb that weeps.
While left-wing militants vandalize historical monuments, assault dissenters, and celebrate the deaths of political opponents, the raised-Right looks on and holds down the fort of her toppling communities.
In spite of all of this, the poised conservative woman keeps her head held high. She knows she can oppose racism without being "actively anti-racist." She respects private property and the distinction between "what's mine" and "what's yours." She holds unalienable rights to the Constitution, not warped to the whims of the public. And though she be but little against the raging masses, she is fierce.
To be active in the political process is to run rampant in the streets, the Left tells young girls. That's how change is made—radically misguided by violence and teenage angst—not gradually led by the electorate. Impatient protestors demand "reparations" now, looting high-end stores in the name of social justice.
These same barbaric rioters, who venture outside their homes to rally outside their elected officials' homes demanding to be addressed, will likely vote by mail. These same COVID-19 crazed attend the tightly-packed George Floyd rallies and are politically immune to the virus.
Meanwhile, the Silent Majority will wait. Our time will come in November when conservative women honor the 19th Amendment and exercise their right to vote, even if the civic act might cause a minor inconvenience in their daily lives.
The 18-year-old will proudly cast her ballot for the very first time, emboldened by the last-minute attention from paparazzi who greeted her at the door with colorful candidate signs and slogan stickers. The widowed shut-in, whose only enjoyment in life is her TV dinners, will emerge one-time-a-year to elect more appetizing dinner guests on her screen.
The career woman will stop at the polls before her grueling nine-to-five job. The nurse will beeline on her lunch break between her twelve-hour shift. The stay-at-home mom will drag two kids on each hip after soccer practice and dance lessons.
By Nov. 3, it would be Day 180 to "slow the spread" and "flatten the curve." We'll arrive masked, the dark horse constituency that will sweep the swing states and shock the squeaky wheels off the Democratic Party.
The Silent Majority will remember our family businesses foreclosed by thieves and economic shutdowns, our places of worship exiled, and our babies still slaughtered at "essential" abortion clinics.
We will not forget the atrocities we've witnessed. We will speak the unspeakable. And we will show the nation how real women vote.
