I watched the trailer. Once I saw Anne Coulter and Sarah Palin make an appearance, I made my decision:

Conservative women: Just as bad as conservative men.

EDIT: Why is there a farm on the website? None of these pundits work on a farm, or work period. Just show the Washington capitol, keep it real.

I know both those things and I wonder how much intelligence it takes to think that Sarah Palin and Michele Bachman aren't just what the DVD is about and they will be much higher placed in a couple of years form now.

BTW, I think that maybe with her glasses on that S.E. Cupp is one of the most beautiful women around, but not to progs, I imagine.

Jesus. "Motherhood is a political act. Period."
No. Getting knocked up is not a political act, any more than going on a diet is.

"We do not want our kids and our grandkids futures taken away from us, and we're gonna stand up and do whatever we need to do, to make sure that doesn't happen!"
What the hell are you talking about? Could these people be any less specific?

"Women are the last line of defense!"
Wow! What an empowering message! After all the men have fought and died, then the women have their turn.

From Citizens United:
"The first-ever film to tell the entire story of the conservative woman in her own words, "Fire from the Heartland" is a powerful statement about America at a crossroads and the women who have awakened to the crisis. With role models such as Clare Boothe Luce, Margaret Thatcher, and Phyllis Schlafly as inspiration, these women are the unintended consequence of the liberal feminist movement.

Tracing the long history of the many conservative women who have been the backbone of this great nation, from the founding mothers of our Republic to today's "Mama Grizzlies," this powerful and compelling documentary honors the self-made American woman.

Activists, politicians and commentators such as Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, S.E. Cupp, Dana Loesch, Michelle Easton, Sonnie Johnson, Jenny Beth Martin, Michelle Moore, Jamie Radtke, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, and Congresswomen Cynthia Lummis, Jean Schmidt, and Michele Bachmann share their emotional stories of hardship and triumph in their fight for freedom. These women leaders are fanning the flames of liberty across the nation.

Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by David N. Bossie, the team that made the critically acclaimed film "Generation Zero" that focused on the financial meltdown and the rise of the Tea Party, "Fire from the Heartland" is a must-see for every citizen concerned with the direction of our country and will stir a fire in the hearts of all Americans.
"

The unintended consequence of the liberal feminist movement? You mean, after liberal feminists fought for women's rights, and won... These new conservative women are using those same freedoms to fight against women's rights? What a horrible consequence indeed.

Wow. The demeaning and marginalizing message for conservative women in all of this mess is just now sinking in. Watch the trailer, and read the description on the citizens united website.

How many times do they make mention of motherhood, children, mama grizzlies, etc? Are they suggesting that conservative women are by default also always mothers? Do mama grizzlies exclude conservative women without children? Why is pregnancy a political act? Why is the conservative woman only awakening now, decades after the liberal women won freedom for all women?

What would be the fallout of a similar video titled "The Awakening of the conservative man," linking fatherhood with conservatism? Men without children are not conservatives, not Papa Grizzlies, and generally not looking out for our "Children's Future" because they have no children.

This is one more piece of evidence that the conservatives like their women barefoot, pregnant, and locked in the nursery. There are too many references to child-rearing for this to be a coincidence. While conservative men are strong, principled, and independent, conservative women are to function as brood mares for the state.

Some might say that the movie is sexist and demeaning to women.
