Fox News contributor blames Obama’s ‘disdain’ for women on ‘Marxist’ father

Fox News contributor Sandy Rios


The Raw Story

A conservative Fox News contributor insisted on Monday that President Barack Obama had a “disdain” for women that he learned from his “Marxist” father and “communist” mentor.

Fox News contributor Sandy Rios, who is vice president of the conservative political action committee Family-PAC Federal, told host Sean Hannity that Obama did not disagree with CNN contributor Hilary Rosen’s assertion that Ann Romney had “never worked a day in her life.”

“His father was a Marxist, his mentor was Marxist,” Rios explained. “The Marxist theory on women is that they should work just like men. There’s a total dripping disdain for women who stay at home and take care of their children. … This is not an accident. This is what they believe. They hold people like Ann Romney and others of us that have stayed home with our children in complete disregard and disdain.”

“That is not what Barack Obama believes,” Democratic Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers disagreed. “You don’t know what you are talking about. You’re making up stuff.”

“Frank Marshall Davis was a communist, that was his mentor,” Rios replied. “His father was a Marxist.”

As Slate’s David Weigel noted last year, “Obama’s past and philosophy makes it very clear that he only read up seriously on socialism and Marxism when he got to Columbia.”

“There is no evidence that Obama ever read his father’s economic papers; if he did, it’s unclear how dense tracts about the problems of post-colonial Kenya would have influenced his thinking about American urban/class politics and economics.”

And contrary to Rios’ claims, Obama has spoken out against Rosen’s remarks, saying it was “the wrong thing to say.”

“It’s not something that I subscribe to,” the president told WCMH-TV in Columbus, Ohio last week.

  1. I once read something about “bearing false witness.”

    I seem to think that God took an unkind view of it. I mean, not like He’d carve the words on a stone tablet and give them to Moses on top of a mountain in one Bible story or anything, but … oh, wait … kind of exactly like that.

    As a Christian, I am endlessly confused by how many Christians support conservatives while they lie so relentlessly.

    This “contributor” is just making stuff up, and ignoring Pres. Obama’s actual statements and patterns. It looks like bearing false witness — or, simply, lying — to me.


    1. I tend to get wordy sometimes, so I will try to condense my response:

      Fiox News is literally trying to program their sheeple watchers with what Fox news wants them to here. In fact, I would even venture to say that Fox news is using the same techniques that Aldous Huxley’s antagonists in the novel 1984 used: DOUBLESPEAK.

      They have programmed their audience to believe the opposite of anything good about progressives/liberals or Obama and his administration.

      Example: Polls show that the POTUS has a high approval rating among women…yet they speak of his “disdain” for women and throws in the term “marxist” to describe his father.

      The origin of their lies has been addressed here.
