by Placerville Newswire / Oct 12, 2016 / comments

Posted by Orli Matlow -- Marybeth Glenn, a political writer and conservative who lives in northern Wisconsin, went viral Monday night with her powerful tweets slamming her party's leadership. 

In 17 tweets, Glenn shows how a once-loyal defender of the party is devastated by the acceptance of Donald Trump, whom she calls a "sexual predator."

Glenn starts off proving her Republican bonafides:

So let me get this straight: I, a conservative female, have spent years defending the Republican Party against claims of sexism. 1/

Marybeth @MBGlenn

When I saw Republican men getting attacked I stood up for them. I came to their defense. I fought on their behalf. 2/

Marybeth @MBGlenn

I fought on behalf of a movement I believed in. I fought on behalf of my principles while other women told me I hated my own sex. 3/

Marybeth @MBGlenn

Not only charges of sexism, but I defended @marcorubio during Go8, I fought in my state to stop the @ScottWalker recall, etc...

And how things took a dark turn when Trump seized the nomination.

Marybeth @MBGlenn

Now some Trojan horse nationalist sexual predator invades the@GOP, eating it alive, and you cowards sit this one out? 5/

He treats women like dogs, and you go against everything I – and other female conservatives – said you were & back down like cowards. 6/

She went on to say how standing up to sexism isn't only the right thing to do, it's hypocritical not to after the women in the party stood up for disgraced men.

Marybeth @MBGlenn

Get this straight: We don’t need you to stand up for us, YOU needed to stand up for us for YOU. For YOUR dignity. For YOUR reputation. 7/

Jeff Sessions says that he wouldn’t “characterize” Trump’s unauthorized groping of women as “assault.” Are you kidding me?! 8/

Marybeth @MBGlenn

Others try to rebuke his comments, yet STILL choose to vote for a sexual predator - because let’s be honest, that’s what he is. 9/

Marybeth @MBGlenn

"What he said is wrong, and the way he treats women is wrong, but it’s not wrong enough for me to not vote for him." Thanks, cowards. 10/

By defending Trump's comments, she says, Republicans are just proving liberal critics right.

Marybeth @MBGlenn

Various men in the movement are writing it off as normal, confirming every stereotype the left has thrown at them. So I'm done. 11/

5:45 PM - 10 Oct 2016

Marybeth @MBGlenn

I'm sooo done. If you can’t stand up for women & unendorse this piece of human garbage, you deserve every charge of sexism thrown at you. 12

While one woman leaving the party one make much of a difference, soon the party could be left to alt-right crazies.

Marybeth @MBGlenn

I’m just one woman, you won’t even notice my lack of presence at rallies, fair booths, etc., You won’t really care that I’m offended 13/

Marybeth @MBGlenn

by your silence, and your inability to take a stand. But one by one you’ll watch more women like me go, & you’ll watch men of 14/

ACTUAL character follow us out the door. And what you’ll be left with are the corrupt masses that foam at the mouth every time you step 15/

Marybeth @MBGlenn

Outside the lines. Men who truly see women as lesser beings, & women without self-respect. & your “guiding faith” & "principles" will be 16/

Attached to them as well. And when it’s all said and done, all you’ll have left is the party The Left always accused you of being. Scum. 17/

She ended the thread calling on prominent Republicans to denounce Trump before it's too late.

@MBGlenn Bravo! That took a lot of inner strength and courage.  Real men don't act nor talk that way.
