The 50s are back: Wingnut Homemakers for America

HFA founder Kimberly Fletcher “We can no longer be silent …. Our elementary school libraries are filled with books like My Two Mommies, and we can’t even turn on PBS anymore,” Fletcher explained. “We cannot hide our heads in the sand. We must speak out.

I’m not slagging stay-at-home moms in this post. What we’re talking about here is a Stepford Wives organization of the AmTaliban designed to encourage a return to “Father Knows Best” and Donna Reed — Homemakers for America, Inc. (HFA). As far as these women are concerned, the clock has rolled back.

“We are the homemakers,” she explained. “Men build the house. We make the home.”

HFA, a national citizenship organization, formed after an epiphany during the 2004 presidential election as a means of uniting a diverse group of women who share the core values of God, freedom and family. The epiphany soon turned into an organized effort as 26 women gathered together for the first time last November in Dayton, Ohio. These women, who largely differed in age, ethnicity, income and religion, became HFA’s first members.

Fletcher and HFA fellow members used grassroots efforts to promote the group’s website. Within two months of the first meeting, HFA grew to a membership of over 200 women from 11 states. Presently, HFA is made up of nearly 400 members from 16 states.

“I have truly felt inspired and directed by God to form this organization. I have been led all the way,” Fletcher said.

…His guidance was evident in the development of HFA as the Lord began prompting Fletcher to form the organization while she and her family were working at a voting precinct in Trotwood, Ohio, on Election Day. The Fletcher family, among other volunteers, passed out detailed voter guides compiled by the Christian Coalition of Ohio. While distributing these guides, Fletcher compared them with the vague leaflets being distributed by the Kerry-Edwards campaign.

…”Homemakers for America, Inc. is a powerhouse — a one-stop shop where you can ask questions, get answers, receive information on issues and find out what avenues are available to be most effective in influencing our families, communities, and our nation,” Fletcher summarized.

“This [decay of America] is not a matter of Democrats versus Republicans, liberals versus conservatives … or Americans versus terror. It is as simple as good versus evil. “Homemakers in America want to be heard,” Fletcher added. “How loud we are depends on our numbers.”

I find these things and it’s surreal; I cannot believe the number of sheeple that are out there, and the sad truth is that it is obvious that women like Fletcher are perfectly willing to turn the cultural clock back.
