John Kasich on CNN: “Single Women With Children Are The Real Heroes in America”

By Debbie Schlussel



John Kasich says the babymamas–single women with children–“are the real heroes in America.” Are you bleeping kidding me?!

Late last night, I was driving home and heard part of the CNN Town Hall with Anderson Cooper blaring on the radio. I heard John Kasich blathering on about something. And all of the sudden he says this:

Single women with children are the real heroes in America.

Yes, he actually said that.

In the World According to Kasich, the real heroes are not American soldiers who risk their lives and jump on bombs to save their fellow soldiers’ lives. Not American men who foil robbers and attackers and save others. Not police officers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. But women who know how to open their legs at least twice . . . once for the incoming and next for the outgoing welfare recipient for the next 18 years. Yup, the “real heroes in America” are the Shaniquas and Bristols and LaKeishas and Emmas who have seven kids with nine different fathers. (Yeah, I know that isn’t possible–it’s a joke.)

And it’s just as bad if you read the full paragraph of what he said:

We have to be sensitive to these – to the folks that are really in a tough spot, you know, working two jobs. Think about that mother; gets up early in the morning; gets the kids off to school; goes to work; comes home; makes dinner. They’re the heroes. They’re really – these single women with children are the real heroes in America, in my opinion.

(You can read it all at the link above.)

HUH?! How are they heroes? How is it heroic to have kids without a father? And why is it now heroism to DO. WHAT. YOU. ARE. SUPPOSED. TO. DO? I mean, it’s now extra and above and beyond the call of duty to actually raise your own kids that you chose to conceive and give birth to? REALLY?! Really?! Come on.

But this is where Kasich is coming from. He’s a liberal. This is the liberal point of view–to promote single motherhood. I don’t care how many Palin chicks have multiple kids out of wedlock with multiple babydaddies and call their slutitude “pro-life.” It’s neither heroic nor pro-life nor to be promoted. And it’s simply absurd to hold these women up as “heroic.”

Yes, there are some women whose husbands die, cheat on and leave them, or are abusive or addicts. But most women who are single mothers in America made a choice–to have kids out of wedlock or to leave their husbands. And they are NOT heroes. They are examples of women who made bad choices and big mistakes. They are women who were incredibly selfish and put their need to have sex and have a living human “pet” or to leave a devoted husband above all else.

Hell no, they are not heroes! Just disgusting what Kasich said. But this is the view of the left. And that this isn’t big news just goes to show you that the GOP is now at home with left-wing politics. Gone is any GOP devotion to social issues which affect the fabric of America. We now have so many kids born out of wedlock (more than 40% as I’ve noted on this site), that it’s become the norm. That’s bad enough. Now, John Kasich wants to elevate single motherhood to hero status. Ridiculous. And sick. Well, I guess that’s why that word is the second syllable of his surname.

I guess Kasich thinks that all of the kids from single mothers–more likely to do drugs, commit crimes, do poorly in school, be incarcerated, be financial drags on society–are a good thing. That fathers aren’t a good thing. When you describe single mothers as heroes, you can mean no other thing.

First, Kasich bragged about hanging out with self-appointed “global warming” hypocrite Leonardo DiCrapio. Now, this RINO imbecile is embracing single motherhood.

Since Kasich has two 16-year-old daughters, I’m sure he can’t wait for them–twins Emma and Reese Kasich–to be pregnant and unmarried, right?

Every dad wants his daughters to be “the real heroes in America.” Doesn’t he?


John Kasich With Daughters: If They Get Pregnant Outta Wedlock, They’re Heroes!


By the way, in case you were wondering, Kasich gave that answer in response to this Cooper question:

Republicans receive a bad rap for being uninterested in the working poor. I’m a Republican and I certainly have a heart for them. What would you as president do to help these people out that are working two or three jobs that can barely feed their children at home? They certainly adhere to the Republican principles of pulling themselves up by their bootstraps, but they’re barely getting by.

Kasich began his answer with this:

Well, the one thing we want to make sure is they have healthcare, right? And that’s a critical part for the working poor.

Um, doesn’t this sound like the left pimping us on ObamaCare? Clearly he doesn’t want to end that, either.

Sorry, Debbie, but you have to give Kaisch’s complete thought regarding “Single women with children are the real heroes in America.”

What Kasich was really thinking was this:

“Single women with children are the real heroes in America [to RINOs and Democrats].”

When you add the critical thought behind Kasich’s statement, it all makes perfect sense. Single mothers are a critical and vital component of the RINO and Democrat markets and their common agenda.

Ralph Adamo on February 19, 2016 at 3:18 pm

When this GOP race first started, I asked a friend–active in GOP circles for decades–what do you know about John Kasich? He said, “RINO goofball.”

You look at Jebbie and this schmuck and you see just how easy it is to become a governor of a major state. Scary.

Red Ryder on February 19, 2016 at 3:42 pm

If this is where conservatism is going, G-d help conservatism.

I mean conservatives used to believe in dad & mom being married, people working, obeying the law and doing right by others.

You know, timeless and tested principles to live a decent life.

Not hard for any of us to do. But too hard for John Kasich to demand of young, single women.

He might take the time to acquaint himself with the fact that fatherless children commit crimes, abuse drugs and alcohol, have failed marriages and go on to have broken homes for their own kids.

Nothing heroic or praiseworthy about it. In today’s America, anything goes and Kasich wants to be part of the zeitgeist.

Thanks but no thanks.

NormanF on February 19, 2016 at 3:43 pm

The GOP is simply to the right of the Democrats who have moved Far Left.

This isn’t the country I grew up in.

There’s the candidate who wants to ape the culture: Kasich.

NormanF on February 19, 2016 at 3:44 pm

And then there is Marco Rubio, the great conservative who sympathizes with the poor victims who have been victimized by the evil police.

This will be a defining election which will show us whether the Republican Party is capable of, ever again, doing anything constructive.

Little Al on February 19, 2016 at 4:52 pm

BRA-VEAU! Bravo! I love columns like this! Too right!

Before I take a figurative chain-saw to the BANE of America’s existence (other than Islam…) let me say those who couldn’t see what this rancid fraud Kasich was DIDN’T want to see it. When he won his Governorship, I was annoyed with how much of a prick this a-hole was. He was rude and dismissive to CONSERVATIVES for no good reason. I saw it as clear as a rebel flag. I knew right there and then that his creep was a wanker. He and Jebito should be running on the LEFT. That is where they belong.

What a pandering dope. Single mothers cause the most harm in society other than Islam. They are selfish, slutty and deny their children a vital part of their life…a loving DAD. Children need their daddies. They need that stable MALE influence in their lives. I have always known this (I may have hid it when I was a feminazi libtard but I haven’t been one of those longer than I was one and I have long ago stood corrected…) and now I almost live and breathe it. I have a NEW family member who has a married mum and dad and the way the little one jumps to it when daddy is around is waaaaaaay different than when his mama is around and in charge. I love it but it almost brings tears to my eyes when I think of the children who don’t have a father (happily married to their mum) around for that yin & yang. Women can’t give children all they need. A strong and loving mum and dad are needed for a kid to have a stable foundation.

Don’t even get me started on when these single mother(effers) bring in other men in their lives, have more kids out of wedlock, marry men with their own kids and/or shack up with other single “fathers” who don’t even live with their kids. These a-holes do more damage to the human psyche than an axe-murderer. I am disgusted by their selfishness and how society likes to pretend this type of slacking off is NOT damaging.

If Kasich likes single mothers so much why doesn’t he dedicate his life to them? He will deserve the futility he will have to endure daily with these soul-rippers. He won’t ever be Prez (thank goodness) so he should go work with these ZEROS. If UR a single mother, you have ruined your child’s life and have made society more weak!

Skunky on February 19, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    Excellent post Skunky as always. You have an enjoyable way of writing that makes someone it over again because is hilariously witty. Single motherhood is that subject that the PC crowd in this country will never address truthfully. It’s pandering dumb dumb heads like Kasich who instead of doing anything of value about it would instead lie and call these women heroes. What a twitching loud mouthed jerk wad .

Debbie, 9 Pictures of Sistas? Come on, now now

MrBigBrain on February 19, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    BDD, why are you pointing the finger at DS? With the percentile of over 70% of black women birthing babies out of wedlock, you should be asking the “sistas” what is up with that. Less than 30% of black women give birth to children in the stability of a covenant marriage. THAT is the issue, NOT the messenger who points out the problem.

    It’s a horrible thing to see in the light of day but that alone shows that the issues “Black Lives Matter” has have NOTHING to do with skin colour…other than the high percentile of the demographic participating in wreckless behaviours. It shows a sheep’s mentality along with a demographic who fails to use their individual brain cavities when nothing else is stopping them!

    Skunky on February 19, 2016 at 9:34 pm

    DS_ROCKS! on February 21, 2016 at 1:25 pm

    Mr BB, you need to get a serious “edjumacasion” about the Single Mother Epidemic. And you’re missing the very point of this article. Politicians lie Obama, and the Democrats and the RINOs have not only done nothing to help solve the problem; they have deliberately worked to ADVANCE the problem because they personally benefit from it. Hence, you have RINOs like Kasich calling single mothers “heroes.” You obviously need a little primer on the situation. I think this 10 minute video as a quick introduction will serve nicely:

    Ralph Adamo on February 21, 2016 at 3:45 pm

My question is how is John Kasich really different from Barack Obama?

Worry on February 19, 2016 at 5:43 pm

Kasich has a simple strategy – siphon off votes of moderate Democrats who can’t stand either Hitlery’s lying or Sander’s Leftism. It worked a good deal in NH, and it could work elsewhere

I just find it hard to believe that so many of the class of 94 have turned from the Contract w/ America to down & out Liberalism

Infidel on February 19, 2016 at 10:21 pm

For long-shot Kasich, S.C. a chance to spread message http://usat.ly/1TvHixn

He certainly is spreading a message. If Kasich is the future of the Republican Party, it really has none.

Worry on February 19, 2016 at 10:56 pm

Anderson Cooper claims to be a Republican? I wonder if he even believes that himself. Of course these days that doesn’t mean that one is conservative.

Richard on February 19, 2016 at 11:48 pm

Can’t stand this arrogant jerk. He was supposedly pulled over by a cop and did the whole, “do you know who I am!” routine. And then when he was at a Koch brother’s venue and a woman objected to his expansion of Medicare under Obamacare he apparently said, “listen lady, when I get to the pearly gates” blah, blah, blah. A total jerk that thinks he is the definition of “christianity.” His campaign can’t implode soon enough as far as I am concerned.

Daniel Middleman on February 19, 2016 at 11:50 pm

Debbie forgot to mention that his father was a mailman.

It’s a requirement, like whenever you mention John Kerry, you have to point out he served in Vietnam.

Because if you don’t point those things out, they will.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 20, 2016 at 12:08 am

It’s not just the issue of single mothers that is a potential time bomb for society. It’s also the whole matter of promoting the idea of children being raised by two mommies or two daddies, thus denying the kids either of the other. In one state, Oregon (I.I.N.M.), there’s actually a proposal to what they call “ending preferential treatment” for heterosexual couples in terms of adopting children – but we all know what that really means: Instituting discriminatory policies against heterosexual couples and thus putting kids at the mercy of those who would warp their moral compass for life, not to mention degrading them every which way possible. Go ask Rosie O’Donnell’s adopted daughter Chelsea how that all worked out.

ConcernedPatriot on February 20, 2016 at 6:21 am

Dear Debbie thanks for sharing! and God Bless you! Absolutelly yes! i would like to say to Mr Kasich! Good day Sir! Our Police officers in America (USA) are The heroes!Police officers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe! Amen Dear Debbie!our American soldiers are The heroes! ofcourse i feel very sad for some women whose husband leave this world, cheat,abusive or addicts! we have these women in America USA and we must help these women!Sincerlly with Respect! Tirdad.

Tirdad Gharib on February 20, 2016 at 2:05 pm

“…seven kids with nine different fathers. (Yeah, I know that isn’t possible–it’s a joke.)”

More like…”7 kids with 9 POTENTIAL fathers”…since they usually aren’t even sure which is from which. You no longer need to qualify it as a joke. It’s not.

Moreover, Kasich has learned the ‘projection’ tactic used in all of the lib talking points…in other words, they take the statistical minority (in this case those working mothers who don’t choose to be single whether through husband’s death, etc.) and bestow their heroic character onto the undeserving majority. We all know the reasons WHY they do this.

They do it with abortion…they cry ‘Rape and incest’ every time the topic comes up, although that comprises only a few percent of the 3,000-4,000 cases where babies are killed every day in this country, due usually to the selfishness of the mother.

They did it with healthcare…it would have been way cheaper to just pay the tab for the small percentage of the population without insurance than to establish a financially unviable bureaucracy which has only served to degrade the existing policies and the care of the majority.

It’s the liberal MO. And since it’s apparent that there are no real conservatives left in politics, get used to it.

What’s next in this election process?
HRC: “I’ve tried to NOT buy off super delegates to win this election. I don’t think I ever have or ever will buy super delegates.”

Kasich: “There are lot’s of heroes in the world today and I shouldn’t single out single mothers. What about the strung-out junkies who battle every day to wake from their stupor. What bravery. And what about those women who just happen to get pregnant on a regular basis yet are stigmatized because they just happen to purge a few thousand extraneous cells once every couple of years or so. My goodness, isn’t that just what makes this country great!!”

YCHtT on February 21, 2016 at 8:58 am

    YCHtT–( did Kasich really say that?.. Those areretty big words for him (e.g., extraneous, stigmatized…). We should ask him if he can spell them.

Thank you Debbie! And here is MORE for your readers: (for purposes of credibility, your readers can look it up themselves. Just search-engine the words, “Kasich wives at home doing the laundry.”. You should get literally PAGES of articles referencing his rude, condescending remarks about women at Romney rally…now that HE is running for president, women mean so much more to him (except that menshould make health decisions about them). And here’s another Sunday morning funny: search-engine the words, “Kasich Parkinson’s” to reveal his rude mimicking of a man with convulsive Parkinson’s, as well as his remarks about Californians being ‘ whackadoodles,” and have your readers watch the video of Kasich calling a poor police officer ( who gave him a ticket) “an idiot.”. Ah, that wonderful, hugging Kasich.

      Hey there, yeah, yeah, I get it. I’m just saying that his elevation of women as heroes in his recents stumps is all phony pandering and that the guy is a jerk. When one of his platforms doesn’t work, he switches. His pandering to sistas and liberals bespeaks his conniving tactics, –and then he has the audacity to pretend that God is directing his “compassion.” I have a feeling that God did not appoint him as “the prince of light and hope,” as he likes to tell people he is..More like the prince of political posturing. Sorry guys, it’s Trump for me.

      Laurie on February 21, 2016 at 1:09 pm

Has Kasich dropped out after South Carolina? The establishment wants Rubio.

Carson should drop out, also. Perhaps the establishment is giving him money to hurt Cruz, but Carson has no chance of winning.

Kanye West is the real hero in American society. He said so the other day, so it must be true. He’s greater than Steven Jobs, Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali, Dr. King, George Washington Carver, Albert Einstein, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Tupac Shakur, Ronald Reagan and Steve Garvey all rolled in to one.

Just ask him, he’ll tell you. Now THAT’S a hero. A man who knows it, . . .

        A legend in his own mind…

        He thinks he’d make a great POTUS, yet he can’t even handle his personal finances to the tune of 53 million. As much as O likes to spend others’ money he’d never do something that ridiculous, and although Trump knows how to play the corp bankruptcy game (as a bus. strategy) he’s managed to retain fortune enough to bankroll his own candidacy and still never have to worry about his future. If it were possible, as an experiment (think ‘Trading Places’) I’d really love to see him try to run this country.

        $1 wager, Alfredo?

You are totally out of line on this Debbie. Bringing in his two daughters, identifying them and using them to attack Kasich? You can disagree, but disagree with the idea…no need to bring in the man’s kids.

You made some decent points, but totally compromised the article with the hit on the daughters. Grow up and be a journalist…not just a cranky pundit.

TP: Um, hellooooo . . . I am a journalist. John Kasich has repeatedly brought up his daughters and named them, including in the same Town Hall I cited in this post. So, they are fair game. DS

    This is a blog and DS is an attorney not a journalist; looks to me like Kasich brought his daughters into the public domain, that was at his own peril.

    TP: Thanks, but I’m an attorney AND a journalist. I break stories, and have had my work published and/or cited/quoted in every major media outlet you can think of, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, New York Post, etc. John Kasich’s daughters are fair game, indeed.

JEB Bush finally had the good sense to drop out after coming in a long 4th place in SC. The Trump carnival circus train continues to steam roll causing people like RNC Chair”man” Rinsed Prius, Karl(Whiteboard)Rove, and Michael Moore buddy Meghanopolis Kelly. She who has a bigger ego than a city. Expect more Twitter from him. John Kasich coming in a distance 5th place will not have the good sense to get lost. This fetid pandering RINO with his latest statement has all but insulted Conservatives like myself by celebrating single motherhood. I guess in this dunces world police officers who come over to the single “hero’s” house at 7am to take the report that her teenaged son Day-Quill snuck out of the house are the problem. Epic putz. Oh and what’s up with that twitchy nervy thing that Johnnie Boy does with his right hand during the debates. That and his RINO gas baggery on stage is enough to make you want to mute the TV. I’m sure that he doesn’t really wish single motherhood on his twin girls. Either way their dear old daddy isn’t playing with a full deck. Hopefully Super Tuesday will knock his percentage into the negatives so that this turkey will go away because he makes JEB Bush and Fats Domino Christy look like pikers.

Good Grief, here we go, Skunky, I was only poking @ Debbie. I am well aware of the nasty stats of single parents in the hood.

In all honesty Kasich really isn’t even a serious contender for the office of president an not to be mean but he is a bit of a dumb ass not that we haven’t had some in office that were not but right now the shape the country is in we need both strong and wise leadership to deal with both domestic and foreign crisis issues which seem to be getting worse by the day.
