Alyssa milano democratic party Intelwars Rose mcgowan Women's Suffrage

Alyssa Milano gets torched by Hollywood star after claiming Dem Party has made ‘the world a better place’

Alyssa Milano got more than she bargained for over the weekend after starting a Twitter thread to list all of the things she claims the Democratic Party “has done to make the world a better place.”

What happened?

After Rose McGowan tore into the Democratic Party for being all talk and no walk, Milano responded with an exhaustive list of what she claims are Democratic Party accomplishments that have made “the world a better place.”

The thread mostly lists the actions of progressive presidents like Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. Oddly, Milano also credited the Democratic Party for winning World War II.

But it was Milano’s first tweet — in which she credited the Democratic Party with women’s suffrage and the 19th Amendment — that drew McGowan’s ire.

“A thread of all the things the Democratic Party has done to make the world a better place,” Milano tweeted. “Let’s start here: 1920 19TH AMENDMENT: WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE Under the leadership of Democratic President Woodrow Wilson, the U.S. Constitution was amended to grant women the right to vote.”

How did McGowan respond?

The Hollywood star tore into her fellow actress.

First, McGowan noted how Milano’s claimed Democratic Party accomplishment was really only beneficial for white women.

“Ummm… did you conveniently forget only WHITE WOMEN got the right to vote? They betrayed all others. To quote Marilyn Manson, ‘I was not born with enough middle fingers,'” she said.

Then McGowan explained why “most” white feminists — which Milano identifies as — are “frauds.”

“If I had been the leader of the Suffragettes, I would have waited and fought for EVERYONE’S right to vote. They f***d up. And you wonder why Black Women think white feminists are frauds. Most are,” McGowan said.

Later, McGowan got personal, claiming Milano “stole” the “#MeToo” movement. She also called Milano a “f***ing fraud” and revealed that Milano was “toxic” to work with on the show that they starred in together, “Charmed.”

You stole #metoo (a brilliant communication tool, not a movement) from Tarana. You co-opted my movement, the Cultural Reset, for fame, jealous of me for outing my rapist. You made 250k per week on Charmed,” McGowan said. “You threw a fit in front of the crew, yelling, ‘They don’t pay me enough to do this s***!’ Appalling behavior on the daily. I cried every time we got renewed because you made that set toxic AF. Now, get off my coattails you f***ing fraud.”

Donald Trump Intelwars presidential pardon Susan B. Anthony Voting rights Women's Suffrage

Trump pardons Susan B. Anthony, so media and Democrats quickly disparage her legacy

President Donald Trump announced a pardon of the late suffragist Susan B. Anthony on Tuesday as part of a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Not coincidentally, Democrats and members of the media took the opportunity to highlight some of Anthony’s shortcomings.

Anthony was arrested and fined $100 for illegally voting in 1872.

“She was never pardoned,” Trump said. “Did you know that? She was never pardoned. What took so long?”

The New York Times accused the president of targeting the 2020 election in its headline, a reference to his alleged obstruction of mail-in voting using the USPS. In the article, the author criticized the event as “heavily political” and said Anthony was not remembered fondly. Maggie Haberman and Katie Rogers wrote:

Unlike other people the president has pardoned, Anthony is not someone whose work Mr. Trump has spoken of during his campaign or his presidency.

She is also an increasingly divisive figure, adopted by anti-abortion forces and criticized for relegating Black suffragists to the sidelines. On Tuesday, Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion political group, and Cleta Mitchell, a lawyer who represents conservative groups, were in attendance as Mr. Trump made his announcement.

The article quotes a Democratic politician who actually called for Trump to rescind the pardon.

“As highest ranking woman elected official in New York and on behalf of Susan B. Anthony’s legacy we demand Trump rescind his pardon,” New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul wrote on Twitter. “She was proud of her arrest to draw attention to the cause for women’s rights, and never paid her fine. Let her Rest In Peace, @realDonaldTrump.”

The Times published a much more flattering article featuring Anthony on Aug. 6 about a statue in Central Park of Anthony, Sojourner Truth, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

“Across the country, monuments honoring racist figures are being defaced and toppled,” Alisha Haridasani Gupta wrote. “In New York’s Central Park, one statue is taking shape that aims to amend not only racial but also gender disparities in public art: A 14-foot-tall bronze monument of Susan B. Antony, Sojourner Truth, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, three of the more prominent leaders in the nationwide fight for women’s right to vote.”

That statue is set to be unveiled on Aug. 26.
