San Francisco sign threatens Fiorina and Whitman — by guest blogger Ms. GW *UPDATED*

UPDATE from Bookworm: Poor Enrico’s. Because its name features prominently on the building, people are assuming it posted the sign. It did not. From Enrico’s facebook page:

You may have received an email about a sign that says “FU (spelled out) Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina” asking you to call Enrico’s Restaurant to complain. Enrico’s is not responsible for the sign. It was put there by the Law offices of Tony Serra who has offices above Enrico’s. Enrico’s,like most businesses, doesn’t take political stands and is not responsible for the sign.

And now back to Ms. GW’s original post:

San Francisco sign threatens Fiorina and Whitman

This vulgar sign, spotted in San Francisco above a prominent restaurant at the corner of Kearney and Broadway, raises the same question one more time:

Why must the Left continue to demean female conservative candidates? How desperate is the Left?

To help answer the question, here’s some insight from a licensed psychotherapist who wrote on this very topic after observing the Left’s attacks on Sarah Palin two years ago:

As every woman knows, leering looks, lurid words, and veiled threats are intended to evoke terror. Sexual violence is a form of terrorism. In the wilding of Sarah Palin, the Left shows its true colors. Rather than shield the vulnerable, Leftists will mow down any man, woman, or child who gets in their way.

So: Leftists are bullies, plain and simple. The Left has been in power for two years, but apparently that’s not enough. Using vulgar language is a simple, common tactic to intimidate, repress and silence others. A “f*** you!” says plenty, and its recipient is instantly diminished. Words hurt and vulgar ones stop any conversation cold and do nothing to advance civilization. As our moms used to tell us, “People use bad words when they want attention or lack the language or creativity to express themselves.”

Interestingly, although it doesn’t show up clearly in this photograph, the sign bears the name of J. Tony Serra, a well-known San Francisco criminal defense attorney who has defended Huey Newton and the Black Panthers, Chol Soo Lee, Ellie Nesler, and other “society outcasts,” according to Serra’s website. Notably, Serra’s own website says, “Tony Serra has always known how to express the poetry of the law, while fighting in the ditches and dark alleys of legal practice.”

Poetry of the law, huh? Fighting in the ditches and dark alleys? If Serra did authorize this sign, most civilized folks will find nothing poetic or courageous in the threat of sexual violence against Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina. Let’s hope Tony Serra and the restaurant are not behind this sign . . . talk about desperately wanting attention.

And by the way, where’s the outrage from San Francisco’s politically correct women? Where’s the outrage from the San Francisco’s politically correct media? Where’s the National Organization for Women when we need them?

Ms. GW is a long-time Bay Area resident and woman who is appalled and offended by the Left’s attacks on any female candidate, conservative or  liberal.

UPDATE II from Bookworm: Please also check out the article on this subject that Ms. GW wrote for American Thinker’s blog. It’s similar, but raises some slightly different points you may find interesting.

    Good post, Ms GW.  Unfortunately, I’m not surprised by the sign.  I saw many such signs, and just as vulgar, when the Republicans held their Presidential Convention in NYC.  Those that display such signs know their clients too well – it might actually help with business!

    As for the politically correct media? and, especially, NOW?  Those folks lean too far to the left to see any harm.  Afterall, wasn’t it the President of NOW who said something along the lines of dragging a 100-dollar bill through a trailer park in reference to Clinton’s accusers?

    Where was NOW and the politcally-correct media when Palin was relentlessly attack?  What about when HER family was attack?

    There is a new show that I have started to watch (The Good Wife).  In a recent episode a well-known, awarded-the-peace-prize-for-his-work-with-women-in-the-third-world recipient is accused of rape.  Part of the lawyers debate is that this lawsuit will tarnish, not just the peace-prize recipient’s image, but the image of the work he is doing.  They may as well have said: The hell with the victim!

    The episode was just like real life for the left – The end justifies the means!

    It’s not as bad as the sign, but let me remind you of Obama’s recent speech.
    As an article put it:

    President Obama chided Latinos who “sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.’ ” Quite a uniter, urging Hispanics to go to the polls to exact political revenge on their enemies.

    The article’s author used two brilliant words to describe what Obama is up to: Ethnic Retribution.

    It’s not just racism.  It truly is Ethnic Retribution.  Against The Enemy.  The ENEMY is: fellow Americans.

    This is from Obama, who can’t even bring himself to call foreign terrorists his enemy.

    What a piece of work.  A truly disgusting human being.

  • David Foster

    Mike Devx…”ethnic retribution”…indeed. Obama sees America as nothing more than an aggregate of groups conducting endless warfare with each other. Government, in his mind, is not an impartial arbiter but a weapon to be seized by some groups to be used to destroy other groups.


    Mike Devx … that’s it (almost) in a nutshell  The ENEMY is: fellow Americans – but only if you delete the word ‘fellow’.

  • Tonestaple

    It has ever been so.  Read Emma Goldman’s autobiography.  Read Sisterhood is Powerful.  Men on the left have always been quite misogynistic.  Who can forget the classic Stokely Carmichael line, “The only position for women in SNCC is prone.”

    None of this is new.  The only part that is new is lefty women taking this (you should pardon the pun) lying down.  I don’t recall them being so eager to do that 30 or 40 years ago.

    Tone is correct on the history.
    The Left is able to turn any cause to the path of evil and darkness. It’s a special ability of theirs, unrivaled in the history of the world. It makes a good match against the US, for the US is also unrivaled in the history of the world. Who will win this deathmatch? The Cause of Darkness or the Light of Truth?
    People keep making excuses when they see evil in the Left. Talking about either Republicans causing the problems or Democrats being better even though they make “mistakes” (Like Ted Kennedy’s drive over a bridge), or they just say the bad apples in the Democrat party are “just individuals”. In fact, they are all wrong. The entire Democrat party feeds such results. It is not a bug, but a feature. It is intended consequences, not unintended consequences, “accidents”, or involuntary manslaughter.
    Critically mistaking the core of the enemy’s intentions has led to the downfall of more people than I can count.
    The reactionary forces in the South led them into the folly of war as well as marshaling a bunch of non-slave owners and anti-slave advocates to fight for their homeland, inevitably killing most of them. Which alliance did these reactionary forces join, once the KKK was formed and then crushed? The Left
    It was the Left that helped the Soviets and the Communists win against Saigon and the Republic of South Vietnam. They were the ones who drank a toast to the Fall of Saigon, whilst living in their mansions paid for by corrupt deals and exploitation of non-English speakers and poor whites.
    You could name almost any evil in the US and it would be a synch to tie the Left to it, in part or in whole. Such is the enemy in front of the US. And such is the power underestimated all too often by the American masses. The Left does not simply have ideology. They have fervor. They have will. They have resources. They have the determination and ruthlessness to make things happen. Unlike a short sighted death cult, they refused to show their true colors until their membership included a major part of the US. This is strategic vision and planning, not simply the antics of a regular Jim Jones death cult. This is a world wide death cult that kills using moral justification.
    The divide and conquer strategy is used well by the Left. They find some group and they fabricate an enemy for that group to fight. Then they offer their services, at a price. Before long, the group now belongs wholly to the Left. Their leaders are Leftists and chosen by Leftists. And the enemy they fight? That enemy is also a group controlled by Leftists. It’s a puppet theater. People think there are “enemies” but all the actors are controlled by a puppet master. The Deathstalker novel series had a system similar to this to hold various factions together. It all breaks apart when the alliance achieves its objectives and the enemy no longer exists. Well, the Dems won and the Republican enemy disappeared into the woodworks for a few years. After touting so much against Bush in 8 years. It was a let down. All the weaponized private death squads the Left had created to go after Bush had to be used somewhere. Otherwise… it’ll all break apart and they will turn on each other. So they gave them a new enemy.
    The Left needs enemies to fight. And it doesn’t particularly matter who they are. If there aren’t any enemies around, they will fabricate one. A Witch perhaps, for the hot coals. Yet there are still people who see Obama as an anomaly. They still think he’s trying his best to help America. They still think what happened in America was a “mistake” on his part that he can “fix” if he only rethinks things. Was it a mistake that Hussein executed by chemical weapons various Iraqi villages in the north and south? Was that just a little accident that could be recovered from with a little re-planning?
    The entire Left acts with the megalomania of Obama. The entire Left, everyone of their weapons, tools, and spiritual leaders, is the same brand of evil. Election results are simply skirmishes. The real fight will only be over when the Left is taken down entirely. Or the US Constitution is completely bypassed. Whichever comes first. With the power of the United States military, the Left can indeed impose global tyranny. And there’ll be UN rape shops all around the globe as a consequence.
    This is bigger than one person, Obama. This won’t be settled by one election or even a dozen elections. This is even bigger than America. Only when you know yourself and know your enemy, will you never fear the outcome of a thousand battles.
    Btw, I like bullies. I’ll leave the matter of details to the imagination of others.

    Heh.  Yet another similarity between the Leftists and the muslims – the submission of women.

  • Ymarsakar

    Suek, the NKVD (Russian secret police) used to hold open field exercises with the SS back in the day.
    These labels of “Left” and “Right” are meaningless. They are all of the Left, meaning the same alliance.

  • MacG

    “fterall, wasn’t it the President of NOW who said something along the lines of dragging a 100-dollar bill through a trailer park in reference to Clinton’s accusers?”
    Unless he was quoting the president of NOW it was he who is the epitome of civility, namely, James Carville.
    I wonder how much he got from Obama after his public criticism over the spill…
