A whopping £500,000 of taxpayers’ money is going into a government project to dismiss men from political life in Scotland.
The move will see public money channelled into “grassroots” propaganda schemes to convince women to become politicians.
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon insisted more had to be done to decrease the number of males elected in Scotland.
It comes 100 years after women were granted the right to vote in the United Kingdom in the Representation of the People Act and then become MPs later in the year.
The broke SNP government has spent the last decade cutting from council budgets but has somehow managed to find extra funding for left-wing campaigners.
Constantly, they have blamed the Tory government in Westminster, yet still manage to find cash for social engineering projects like this.
This is a Scottish Government hell-bent on throwing men out of political life in Scotland to bring about “gender equality”.
The unnatural policy fails to take into account the different life choices women make regarding politics – less women are interested in politics, women are on average less ambitious and careerist than men.
There is so much research into how women and men differ in their life goals and character traits, but this is of no interest to the progressives.
The attack on men, especially white men, continues and will be of the detriment to society. Men are being punished for being men.
This demand for more women in politics implies men have done a bad job or that women could do better.
Maybe women could do better – but is there any evidence to suggest women in power actually improves anything?
Policies like this soothe the incredibly large egos of leading progressive figures in Scotland who compete to be the most “tolerant” and “liberal” politician.
Real people don’t give a rat’s arse about who is in charge, as long as they are doing their job.
Getting rid of men to put feminists in power is not going to help anything.
This fund is merely to provide resources for leftist groups to push propaganda and grow their various shrill and annoying campaigns.
Cultural Marxism, the theory that white men are out to oppress every minority, is complete codswallop, and certainly a motivation behind this policy.
It is so patronising to women to assume they need all of this extra help, with money which is mostly provided by successful men who pay their taxes.
The left needs to stop treating women as victims. They are not. They can stand on their own two feet and fight men on merit.
Scottish Government press release.
