D’Souza Mistress Opposes Women’s Suffrage

Wow, add Dinesh D’Souza’s mistress, Denise Odie Joseph II, to the list of women who think women’s suffrage was a bad idea. On her blog in January she wrote this really weird, rambling post that purports to be about hypocrisy but goes on about “RINO (Republican in Name Only) dads” and included this gem:

RINO Republicans are analogous to fathers who proudly proclaim their conservativeness at dinner parties or perhaps during early afternoon phone calls to El Rusbo’s show, but let their “independently-minded” wives (translation–women who get their marching orders from St. Oprah or more recently, The View ) pump their teenagers full of birth control and encourage their daughters to live the lives for which their bra-burning foremothers fought so valiantly. Indeed, this particular post was inspired by one such RINO Dad I know exceedingly well, at exactly one such dinner party, several years ago.

RINO Dads are those guys who will sheepishly to proudly, fill out Republican ballots on Election Day while their wives openly mark their support for things like, “freedom of choice” and “freedom from poverty.” What most people don’t realize, and indeed what I didn’t realize until I blocked out the “madding crowd,” is that these women and their RINO men are like a vast national living history museum, pictographically illustrating exactly why the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever and in fact, more closely resembles the greatest show on Earth. Think Ringling Bros. If these modern families keep at it, museums telling the hieroglyphical tales of our civilization might be all that is left of us.

And to make it even funnier, this paragraph:

In addition to saying he would vote for Ron Paul should Paul become the party nominee, Rick Santorum has something else right. Santorum has been the only candidate to acknowledge, if not with terrible clarity, and if not to much avail, that the family unit is the cornerstone of American society. Santorum meekly hints that the horrific number of single-mom (pause to pay homage) headed households are, in some way, shape, or form, a symptom and cause of our crumbling economy. However, unlike Santorum who timidly proffers his thesis (unless I’m missing something) I would like to stand up and stick my figurative finger in the face of every RINO Politician and man and ask, “Whatever happened to good ole hypocrisy?!”

Perhaps you should ask your pro-family fiance.

    Sounds like a match made in heaven.

  • anteprepro

    Wow. Among all the blatant scaremongering and anti-sex, anti-woman nonsense, she presents “freedom from poverty” as a bad thing? Wingnuts disgust me.

  • a miasma of incandescent plasma

    the horrific number of single-mom headed households are, in some way, shape, or form, a symptom and cause of our crumbling economy.

    When thinking about the great recession, I always forget how the credit crisis and insurance denials on toxic assets of the big banks tied so closely to the number of single moms in this country.

    I’m sure she could remind me how single moms are to blame for the deregulation of the financial industry that removed safeguards that have been in place since the Great Depression ended.

    I’ll wait…

  • raven

    C’mon, look at it on the bright side.

    At least she is D’Souza’s intellectual and moral equal.

    Which is pretty far down the rabbit hole. I like how she thinks Rick Santorum, the Dark Age Pope wannabe, is too moderate.

    A lot of the fundies really do deeply yearn for a New Dark Age. This woman seems to want to go back to biblical times, somewhere around early Iron Age. When half your kids died before you they were 5, slavery was common, and most people never lived past 40.

  • busterggi

    So if she is such a good Christian why is she sleeping with someone else’s husband?

    Every group has its crazies but the religiosi have the craziest.

  • Randomfactor

    Isn’t she supposed to be silent, too?

  • raven

    The intra religious hatred was a nice touch.

    Fundie xianity is based on hate. Hatred for other xians, women, nonwhites, Democrats, nonxians, science and scientists, atheists, Pagans, etc..

    When they get bored hating all of those, they hate each other. And every once in a while, they end up hating themselves.

    Hard to say what is after that. Maybe they just hate life in general and theirs in particular.

  • raven

    So if she is such a good Christian why is she sleeping with someone else’s husband?

    Silly question.

    It’s the third major fundie sacrament. Hypocrisy. The only moral adultery is my adultery

  • raven

    There are a lot of proofs that the gods don’t exist.

    The fundies and Denise Joseph are two of them.

    If there was a god, Denise would be forced to live in the world she wants, not the one we have.

    It would look a lot like Afganistan or Somalia. At least she wouldn’t have to worry about women voting, driving cars, or being allowed out in public without a male relative escort.

  • jasonbowes

    D’sousza claims in an interview with Christianity Today that he had no idea that getting engaged to another woman before he was officially divorced was un-kosher. Seriously:

    “The thing I will admit: I did not have any idea that it is seen as wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced even though separated. … That was a true error of judgment, but it was truly a case where I didn’t know better.”

    Just amazing.

  • andrewlephong

    “I did not have any idea that it is seen as wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced even though separated.”

    Uh, Dinesh…it’s seen as wrong in many Christians circles to be divorcing in the first place.

  • baal

    D’Souza (and I guess his finance too now) may want to reconsider making public statements for a while. His income is likely dependent on speaking fees and keeping his name in dialog. At the rate they are going, they’ll alienate nearly everyone.

    OTOH, I’m big on honesty and treating people proportionately. If he keeps up his rolling unintentional comedy tour maybe other apologists or hard line bad argument christians will reexamine their views.

  • DaveL

    D’sousza claims in an interview with Christianity Today that he had no idea that getting engaged to another woman before he was officially divorced was un-kosher.

    Is he still pretending he was in divorce proceedings at the time of that conference, when it’s a matter of public record he didn’t file until days afterwards?

  • kermit.

    raven Hard to say what is after that. Maybe they just hate life in general and theirs in particular.

    Here’s a cheerful little children’s ditty I learned as a baby Fundie. When, around age 12 or so, I actually listened to the words I’d been singing, I was horrified:

    This world is not my home, I’m just a’passing through

    My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.

    The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door

    And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.

    Etc.

  • Sastra

    Apparently D’Souza knows enough about what Christians consider wrong to think it was important to point out that, while they did share a hotel room, “nothing happened.” *Ahem*

    Of course, two unmarried people of opposite sex and romantic inclination sharing a hotel room in the first place would probably be considered kind of dicey, too. But we are all sinners, etc. etc.

    As for DOJII, the 19th Amendment would obviously have been a much better idea if men were less lackadaisical about “letting” their wives mark their support for things they shouldn’t be marking their support for. In order for this female suffrage thing to work properly, men need to maintain control over all the votes in the family. Otherwise, it’s a Family Circus. “Think Ringling Bros” with Dolly running around leaving those little dotted lines behind her.

  • brucegee1962

    So how about if some of these women who think the 19th amendment is a bad idea would proudly NOT VOTE as a sign of their principles?

  • http://motherwell.livejournal.com/ Raging Bee

    I heard d’Sozzled broke off the engagement yesterday or the day before. If this is true, either he’s a spineless turd, or he never cared that much for her in the first place.

    Those two hypocritical jackasses deserve each other.

    Well, he’s already down his salary. Christianity Today is now reporting that D’Souza “resigned” as president of The King’s College.

  • cptdoom

    “The thing I will admit: I did not have any idea that it is seen as wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced even though separated. … That was a true error of judgment, but it was truly a case where I didn’t know better.”

    I guess that depends on what you mean by “Christian.” I am pretty sure Willard Romney’s grandpa and great-grandpa didn’t bother to divorce one wife before getting engaged to another, but apparently that’s also a no-no among fundies. Of course, John McCain actually got one marriage license in Arizona while still legally married to his wife in California (although he didn’t use the license until his divorce was final), so maybe it IS ok – I have to admit I am confused.

    Dinesh d’Sozzled is nothing but a rent-boy for the Tea Party, and has no credibility with anyone else. Now this affair makes him an embarrassment to his only clients. I guess he’s toast now, unless they quietly put him on Wingnut Welfare.

    Minor point of order: when it comes to mocking sobriquets for the man, I’m partial to “Dinesh d’Sousaphoney”.

  • raven

    Won’t make any difference.

    They are all hypocrites. You don’t think they believe much of anything they babble on about, do you?

    The stats for teenage pregnancy, divorce, and abortion are the same for the fundies and often even much higher then the general population.

  • burpy

    @Kermit, Woody Guthrie wrote a retort to that song;

    Now as I look around, it’s mighty plain to see

    This world is such a great and a funny place to be;

    Oh, the gamblin’ man is rich an’ the workin’ man is poor,

    And I ain’t got no home in this world anymore.

    And here´s my favourite rejoinder to those hymns that urge the poor person to be meek and wait for their reward in heaven;

    You will eat, bye and bye,

    In that glorious land above the sky;

    Work and pray, live on hay,

    You’ll get pie in the sky when you die.

    …could have been written yesterday.

  • kantalope

    What is with all the women hating all of a sudden? With the MRA’s and their particular brand of public hatefulness and all these women speaking out about how women shouldn’t be allowed to speak out (and that is one weird sentence to type out)? Has this always been going on and I just was not aware? Or have we turned a corner where it is ok to smack-talk on the ladies (and then pretty soon just smack I imagine.) Is it the publicity and coverage from the middle east where fundies see women in burkas and not allowed to drive or even go out in public and they are thinking –“Oh, yeah. We should get us some of that.” Or is it a Mormon running, or the Tea Party, maybe the Koch Bros. are sending out newsletters about the rightful place for pregnant-ignorant-barefooters.

    W-T-F?

    Burkas might not catch on around here but should I be starting up a prairie-skirt and homespun shop for non-uppity women? Only accepting payment from their menfolk though. Maybe require that the women…girls I mean – show a permission slip that indicates that they are there with adult male approval?

  • http://www.themindisaterriblething.com shripathikamath

    Well, turns out that D’inesh D’souza has “resigned” from his $1 million gig at his Christian college. The board and the trustees were miffed at him for not doing anything worthwhile for that kinda money, and decided to dump the cheating hypocrite.

    Not because he cheated, but because he was too busy promoting the racist flick on Obama, and not earning his CEOship or D’ean-ship or whatever the fuck he is supposed to be doing as the head of a Christian college.

    Here, feast your eyes on D’souza’s d’emise for his fling with D’enise while being married to D’ixie.

  • AsqJames

    the horrific number of single-mom (pause to pay homage) headed households are, in some way, shape, or form, a symptom and cause of our crumbling economy

    According to Wikipedia D’Souza and his wife have a daughter so Ms Joseph is party to actions likely to add to the number of “single-mom headed households”. She is therefore an economic terrorist and actively engaged in treason against the United states of America.

    Don’t they already hate life? Many fundies are looking forward to the End Times after all.

  • http://anexerciseinfutility.blogspot.com tommykey

    Let’s give a warm welcome to Dinesh D’Souza as he joins the ranks of the “cultural left.” Now we can retroactively blame him for 9/11.

  • Akira MacKenzie

    Oh, gets better and better! It appears that MS. Joseph II is married too!

  • mikeyb

    The very idea that D’souza is taken as a serious intellectual by the right with his batshit crazy ideas on education, racism, evolution, atheism, role of Christianity in history, Obama; ie virtually everything he has ever said and done, is perfect proof of the utter totally depravity and bankrupcy of conservativism. Of course conservatives today are really little more than paid lapdogs for their corporate taskmaskers and billionaire think tank talking points. I could care less about D’souza’s philandering since all the damage he really has done comes through his true moral offense – nonstop verbal philandering – lately from all his moronic ass groupies he made a true killing off of – 2016. If PT Barnum were alive today he’d definitely would mop the floor posing as a conservative.

    True.

    I’ve noticed this long ago.

    The fundies best idea is to sit around in a comatose daze, waiting and hoping for a Sky Monster to show up 2,000 years late and kill 7 billion people and destroy the earth.

    Doesn’t work for me though. I’ve got cats to feed and a garden to take care of. Among other worth while things going on in my life.

  • raven

    D’enise’s married. Just like D’inesh.

    Don’t worry. It will be all right.

    D’Souza and Denise are…xians. They will be forgiven by the Ske Fairy like it says in their magic books.

    If D’Souza is still Catholic, even better. Just go to confession and say a few Hail Marys.

    Besides, he is storing up treasure in heaven like it also says in the magic book. I’m sure he has several lifetimes worth of credit for the all important Hypocrisy Sacrament.

  • mikeyb

    I don’t honestly know what would be worse – being locked in solitary confinement and having to listen to non-stop video and audio feeds of either Dinesh D’souza or Deepak Chopra. Waterboarding might be a better option if given another choice.

    rightwingwatch:

    Denise Odie Joseph II was known as Denise Odie back in 2010 when she was in law school. She created a new Facebook account on December 30, 2011 under the name Denise Odie Joseph II and said she got married that day:

    Two days later, she posted a photo of herself with her husband:

    On her blog – entitled “I, Denise, Lust After…” – she described herself in April as Mrs. Odie Joseph. The following month she wrote, “I was already going to vote for Romney because my husband told me to.”

    In the “about me” section, she called herself a “conservative bloggette” who believes that “women should be the moral guardians of their homes.” She also called herself a “strong believer in the concept of Republican Motherhood.”

    Oh Cthulhu.

    1. She got married December, 2011. That means her marriage didn’t even last a freaking year.

    2. I’m just going to say it. If you read the gibberish she writes, this woman doesn’t seem all that sane.
