Kristi Noem Whines, Dishonestly, That Her Transgender Activism Was "Misreported;" Takes a Passive-Aggressive, Bitchy Shot at DeSantis

Whining and bad-faith deflections and passive-aggressive put-downs -- how presidential. How statesmanlike!

How stunning and brave!

This ditzy South Dakota 7, New York 6 thinks she can be president.

Who wants to tell her?

Sorry to the 'ettes, and especially the South Dakota 'ettes, for that "South Dakota 7/New York 6" joke. But Noem plainly thinks that her looks can overcome the fact that she broke faith with conservatives.

She has to take a good look in the mirror and realize she's not that good looking. She's merely good-looking for a politician. You wouldn't give her a second look, and barely a first look, if she was serving you coffee at Starbucks.

But when you stand her next to Nancy Pelosi and Chris Christie -- sure, she looks "cute."

Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem expressed her frustration with the coverage she received from her "friends" in conservative media over her decision to not sign a transgender athlete bill into law earlier this year.

Speaking to reporters at CPAC on the subject of restoring trust Americans have in politics, Noem urged the media to be "a little more diplomatic," saying it "just gets old" to be taken out of context.

She then cited the media's treatment of her vetoing of a bill, as it was written, that would ban trans-athletes from participating in public school girls' sports.

"The women's sports issue was the one that was the hardest for me, because I've been attacked by liberals my whole life, but getting attacked by my friends was tough," Noem said. "So us on the right that say, 'Oh, we're never wrong--' no, we've got conservative reporters, conservative networks, that definitely do not tell the truth either."

"The bill that I gave my legislature and asked them to sign - because I did not veto a women's sports bill - I asked them to fix it, and they chose not to. But that wasn't the message that everybody heard in this country. And what I asked the legislature to sign is exactly the model legislation that's been passing in every other state … No governor ever got a bill put on their desk and handed to them like my legislature first gave me. And I gave them a style-informed revision, asked them to change it, and they refused. That's not what you guys heard on the national news," she elaborated.

Oh my God, so many Stunning and Brave, Stronk and Empowered Women being held down by Evil Men.

In March, Noem received rare criticism from conservative media for not enacting a bill that would ban trans-female athletes from competing in public school girls' sports, with outlets like The Federalist calling her actions "cowardly." The governor argued that the bill as written would have been defeated in the courts if it were challenged by opponents like the NCAA.

In addition to whining about correctly being called cowardly and a corporate sell-out, Kristi Noem went on to take a very passive-aggressive, c***y shot at Ron DeSantis for shutting down Florida and then pretending that he didn't.

We need leaders with "grit," says the Stronk Empowered Woman who spinelessly collapsed when the NCAA gave her a dirty look.

Emily Jashinsky, formerly of the Federalist, explains that Noem herself shutdown South Dakota, and is now pretending she didn't.


Guess she didn't have enough grit!


Jashinsky also notes that Noem is also "rewriting history" with respect to her "bad faith" and "deeply dishonest" claims she did not roll over for the corporate liberal Chamber of Commerce in letting boys compete against girls in sports.


Note that Jashinsky's cohost is a boomer leftwinger -- stop the video before he starts talking, or you'll want to kill yourself.


Joy Pullman at The Federalist has an absolutely baller column about why we should all be done with what Abigail Shrier has dubbed "Aw, Shucks" Conservatism -- a "conservatism" of cringing cowardice.

And she includes liberal trollop Kristi Noem as one of the "Aw, Shucks" Conservatives.

In a recent article critiquing the political right from a fair outsider's perspective, Abigail Shrier discusses what she calls "Aw Shucks Conservatism." Shrier writes this disposition's core mistake
...is that it treats Leftist ideologues like quirky out-of-town guests arriving for brunch. It assumes we all want the same things and are equally devoted to the perpetuation of bedrock American commitments: free speech, free exercise of faith, equal protection, rule of law.

But the Woke are not zany guests. They are home-invasion robbers. The structure they intend to leave behind will contain but a handful of the cultural artifacts they encountered. Bringing down statues of Abe Lincoln, books by Dr. Seuss and schools named for the country’s founders? That's just their casing the joint. The large-scale heist hasn't even started.


...

Unlike such so-called representatives, Shrier has awakened to the true nature of the political left, in large part by personal experience.... But many Americans still have not had close enough experiences with the radical left to have gained this deep understanding that their goal is the end of the American way of life.

That includes far too many Republican Party officeholders. Those are the kind of people who proudly make infrastructure deals with the Biden administration for the hollow sake of "bipartisanship" and then get rolled without exacting a price for it... Shrier gives the example of Sen. James Lankford's inability to critique the Biden administration replacing the word "mother" with "birthing person," which enables abominations like this.

Republicans do this because too many still do not understand -- or refuse to understand -- the nature of the opposition. They are culture war Neville Chamberlains, feeding Americans to the Minotaur one generation at a time while believing it's a bargain, because, after all, the Minotaur isn't eating everyone, and they'll certainly die before it’s their turn to meet him.

A display of this kind of mental and moral cowardice is utterly disqualifying from anyone who wants to hold office as a Republican going forward. That's because only fools make deals with barbarians expecting them to keep it. People who can't tell a citizen from a barbarian aren't fit to lead.

A key component of this cowardice is the refusal to fight for sexual sanity, Shrier’s top issue right now. No society can exist without protecting families. Republicans have whiffed on this at least since Roe v. Wade. Republican headliners like Mike Pence and Kristi Noem, for example, love to go around talking about how much they love God and liberty, but when things came down to the wire under their governorships, both quickly let the barbarians advance.

Recall that Pence was a key initial cause of the rise in cancel culture when he became the test case for the LGBT left's new strategy of attacking through the marketplace. In 2015, the left went nuts on Indiana over its attempt to protect Christians from harassment based on their beliefs, and Pence folded so fast the tactic immediately moved to the center of the left's arsenal.

Noem pulled a similar trick earlier this year on a bill to protect girls from being forced to compete against males in school sports, and she's still going around sucking her thumb about it, making her decision worse by piling on lies and accusations in an attempt to cover up her capitulation.

Her cover-up attempt is a top reason Noem should be a total non-starter nationally. Same for Pence. They have proven they cannot be trusted under fire to defend the American way of life. That's the whole game right there, folks -- not corporate tax rates and child credits.

Read the whole thing.

Yes, she has the Corporate Class' number right: they will talk about defending traditional American values, but when it comes to action, the only thing they're willing to act on is fucking corporate tax rates.

And then they tell you, "Hey, we're super conservative. Look at how we Preserved the American Way of Life for Montsanto. Walmart, Goldman Sachs and FaceBook."

Fuck you. Die in fires.

Kristi, go back to Paul Ryan, who was almost surely advising you and Asa Hutchinson on what to do on the transgender issues to keep yourself in good stead with the corporate donor wing of the party, and just ask him to get you a job on the board of CitiBank or whatever.

Which is your real endgame anyway.

You're done in elective conservative politics.

Get the fuck out and shut the fuck up.
