Cynthia Neely’s column was inflammatory and divisive

Cynthia Neely recently wrote an article titled "Republican-style Sharia law denies women basic rights." I question the intent in this very inflammatory article. She states several things hoping that woman will explode with anger and vote against conservative politicians. She stated:

"Republicans believe corporations are people, but women aren't (even though thousands of woman own corporations like Oprah Winfrey)." Both President Bushes, as well as Reagan, demonstrated in their loving relationships that conservative politicians obviously think women are wonderful people. The Clintons and the Kennedys demonstrated just the opposite.

"Republican politicians are making law that requires a doctor to violate a woman with a medical instrument, this gives an entirely new meaning to statutory rape." Women should be outraged Ms. Neely compared this to a hideous crime of rape.

She evoked Rush Limbaugh's name to draw out even more emotion from her intended audience.

Many think president Obama is looking for distractions to take attention away from his record. His policies have led to such disastrous results that he has no constructive messages (like hope and change). His followers are desperate and very willing to help Mr. Obama by taking focus away from him. What better way than create anger and resentment between the sexes and political parties.

I sincerely hope that women think about what Ms. Neely said. This was nothing more that her attempt to get her "candidate" elected again by you reacting with inappropriate anger and emotion as opposed to sound analytical thinking.
