Imagine The GOP Outrage If Hillary Clinton Released an Ad Threatening to Castrate DC

castrate some pigs

“I grew up castrating hogs…”

This is the opening salvo from Republican Iowa state Senator Joni Ernst’s new ad, in which she proudly declares that of all of her many capabilities, the one she thinks will be most useful should you send her to DC is her ability to castrate pigs.

She promises to make Washington’s big spenders “squeal”! Snip snip.

Watch here:

“I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm, so when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork,” she said.

“My parents taught us to live within our means. It’s time to force Washington to do the same. To cut wasteful spending, repeal Obamacare, and balance the budget. I’m Joni Ernst and I approve this message, because Washington’s full of big spenders. Let’s make ’em squeal!”

Republican state Senator Ernst is fighting to stand out from the crazy in the race to replace retiring Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA).

Ms. Ernst is a proud, gun-toting “pro-lifer”, according to her campaign website. She explains her conservative cred – she walks around with a weapon and she thinks women should turn their medical decisions over to Republican politicians. Also, she can shoot an M16 so clearly she can legislate well.

“I have an “A” rating from the NRA, hold an Iowa concealed carry permit, and I actually do carry, and I have been Army qualified on the 9mm and M16.”

Indeed, all life is precious, except for pig life, obvs, “Joni believes life begins at conception… Joni opposes any taxpayer funding of abortion.”

Good thing Ms. Ernst has that M16 to fight the non-issue of taxpayers paying for abortions, since there is already a law about that in place that prohibits federal funding of abortions, and it’s been around for a long time. It’s called the Hyde Amendment, and it hurts low income women.

This is probably not the time to draw the logical conclusion re castration as a big help to the abortion rate, eh? It is much more civilized and actually works really well to simply provide access to affordable birth control. The rate of abortions has actually declined under President Obama.

If you’re wondering why the Republican thinks that castration is the winning flag to wave in her party, she’s trailing very far behind in a race with 6 (some crazy) Republicans. A Quinnipiac poll shows her trailing further behind now than she did in December of 2013 against Democrat Bruce Braley (42-29), who holds a 9 point lead over the closest GOP challenger.

… Braley holds a 9-point lead on the closest Republican challenger, businessman Mark Jacobs. No other GOP contender comes within 12 points of him. Former US Attorney Mark Whitaker trails 42-30 while State Senator Joni Ernst is behind by 13 points. Conservative radio host Sam Clovis is even further back, as he trails Braley by 15 points.

Normally, taking such obvious pleasure in castration would not be a wise move for a female politician, but Ms. Ernst is a Republican. For some reason Republican men are thrilled by Republican women who talk about castrating them, if Sarah Palin is any indication, so the reaction to Ms. Ernst’s castration glee might be better than expected. Surely part of the appeal is that it’s a non-threatening, masculinity-idolizing image — a mirroring of patriarchal power most satisfying in its narcissistic draw, as these Republican women support laws that in fact give men more power over women.

Were Hillary Clinton to make this ad — gleefully crowing over her ability to castrate the pigs in DC– the entire Right Wing of the Interwebs would implode with fear-driven rage and conspiracies. But it’s totally okay for a Republican woman to make castration the hook of her campaign, because the only people she really scares are the women whose rights she is trampling.

Ms. Ernst grew up castrating hogs, so surely she can do this federal legislating thing. How hard can it be?

  1. Joni Ernst..A Dickless Republican Wet dream and Americas worst Night mare! I type with legs firmly crossed. This woman is a joke and she is too stupid to understand it. An “A” rating from Non Responsible Americans is a BIG FAT F from we sane courageous REAL Humans.

  2. I wonder if she uses that castration bit as a pick up line? The article said she is in a race with 6 others “(some crazy)” you mean there others worse than her running? Wow.
    She got an endorsement from Mitt Romney and we know he has no cojones.

  3. I have heard a boar hog being castrated without anaesthetic. At first, I thought it was a child being slowly sodomized and dismembered, but within seconds, I realized the voice wasn’t human. Then I thought it was slaughter, but instead of being over in a couple of minutes, it went on, ever more agonized. Then it stopped…surely the poor beast was dead. But the silence was followed by a sob, like that of a betrayed child. The next time I saw that little hog, about three weeks later, his testicles and his tusks were both gone. Nothing made me so happy as when those people left the neighborhood.

    The fact that this woman repeatedly inflicted this kind of agony and can boast of her actions and joke about the squeals is most eloquent.

  4. The Hyde Amendment affects every woman in the military. Raped soldiers have to take leave, fly commercial and pay out of pocket to avoid a pregnancy. Wake up.


  6. Actually, what you’re looking at is Republican Makeup, which is basically mid 1950’s, any women’s magazine, style.

  7. Joni no doubt knows that Big Mama Grizzly carries the most CLOUT with Conservative/Tea Partier Grassroots Americans, and should get a huge boost from this Palin endorsement.

    Remember this from 2010?

    “Palin’s ability to propel tea party-aligned candidates into office was a well-documented phenomenon in 2010, when she endorsed over 60 Senate, House and gubernatorial candidates, the majority of whom won. Her midterm travels even inspired The Washington Post to launch a “Palin Endorsements Tracker,” complete with clickable audio of a growling grizzly bear, an homage to her self-styled “Mama Grizzly” image.” ~ Peter Hamby, CNN journalist

    #TeaParty Will @washingtonpost run an interactive Palin endorsement Tracker in 2014, like this 1 they ran in 2010?~>
