Elisabeth Hasselbeck understands the core values of most women’s groups, and it has less to do with a person’s sex than how they vote come Election Day.
The conservative Hasselbeck, a mainstay on the primarily liberal chat show The View, told The Huffington Post that she’s watched as women’s groups stayed mum rather than rush to the defense of conservative women.
It seems to me that you’re not allowed to be a conservative for women’s rights,” Hasselbeck answered. Later, in the clip above, she says, “I really think that when conservative women are being attacked in the way that they are with the language that’s being used, and yet the women’s groups refuse to get behind those women, it tells you a lot.
One need only consider the amount of hate sent Gov. Sarah Palin’s way from both entertainment figures and media professionals to understand Hasselbeck’s argument.
