  • A feminist's rejection of Hillary

    An article by a long-time Democratic Party member and Sanders' supporter - Camille Paglia

    Hillary has skimmed along in her bouncing gender bubble, virtually untouched by her too chivalrous Democratic rivals. Far from Hillary (in this election cycle or the last) having a harder time as a woman candidate, she has been habitually shielded by her gender. At the early debates, for example, Martin O’Malley was paralyzed by his deference to her sacred womanhood and hardly dared raise his voice to contest her brazen untruths from three feet away. Meanwhile, in debate after debate, unconstrained by the sycophantic media moderators, Hillary rudely interrupted, talked over both O’Malley and Bernie Sanders, and hogged airtime like it was going out of style. Not until CNN’s April 14 debate in Brooklyn on the eve of the New York primary did moderators forcibly put a lid on Hillary’s obnoxious filibustering

    Hillary’s anti-male subtext, to which so many women voters are plainly drawn, flared into view last week when she crowed to CNN’s Jake Tapper about her proven skills in sex war: “I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak….I’m not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me.” The prestige media tried to suppress Hillary’s gaffes here (which breezily insulted both men and Native Americans) by simply not reporting them. Her campaign deflected initial criticism, but she made no personal response until the issue kept escalating. Five days later, she sat down with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and incredibly claimed that she had been referring to Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Rep. Rick Lazio and Vladimir Putin—none of whom have had perceptible “temper tantrums” about her.
    as for Trump, Paglia writes:
    Trump has knocked the stilts out from the GOP establishment and crushed the pretensions of a battalion of political commentators on both the Left and Right. Portraying him as a vile racist, illiterate boob, or the end of civilization as we know it hasn’t worked because his growing supporters are genuinely motivated by rational concerns about border security and bad trade deals. Whether Trump, with his erratic impulses and gratuitous crudities, can morph toward statesmanship remains to be seen.

    After a maximum of one second, it would be difficult for any intelligent human being NOT to have a temper tantrum around HIldebeast, or to repress the primeval, atavistic urge to club her a few times.

      Hillary's whole adult life has been predicated on exploiting the classic feminist double-standard to the fullest: "I'm a lady, so you knuckle-dragging men are obliged to hold the door open for me -- as I gratuitously kick you in the shin on my way by." It's taken Camille Paglia how many years to realize this?

      I guess that it shouldn't be surprising that it took Paglia this long to come clean about Hillary after all. Since the liberal-left's favorite game has been "name that victim," running all over themselves to pinpoint the world's greatest sufferer at the hands of the military-industrial-white-male-capitalist-imperialist-European-oligarchy-Christian-financial-petro-chem-patriarchy, maybe Paglia has finally arrived at a moment of clarity, perhaps tacitly admitting that these identity politics victimhood games are, in reality, counterproductive.

          Actually, Camille Paglia has been very critical of Hillary Clinton over the years. She is one of the more honest Liberals out there. She has never been one to shy away from criticizing the left as well as the right. I don't agree with her on a lot of issues but I enjoy reading her columns over the years.

            The ammunition against her keeps piling up. If the Dems were smart they would put Sanders up and undercut Trump's 'outsider' appeal.

              The sort whom fit "Trump's 'outsider' appeal" have little in common with Bernie and his supporters. Two different 'camps' filled with two different 'critters'.

              Got a taste of that this past weekend when Trump came to town, literally a few miles from my backyard, and both factions turned out. Trump came here to Lynden, Whatcom County because the Demos/libs in the guv'mint of Seattle, King County delayed processing the permits, etc. needed for Trump to speak at Boeing Field in Seattle.

              The DNCers here in this county are about 3/4 supporters of Bernie and displayed their civility, tolerance and acceptance of diversity by physically blocking a main hiway, and lacing their protests with written and verbal obscenities. Fortunately very little of assaults and/or property damage.

              Turnout of those wanting to see Trump was far in excess of the capacity for the venue, many had to either listen as best they could outside the fence, or go home and try to catch the live telecast.

              So far looks like little common ground between the Bernie supporter/voter base and the one for Trump.

              Bernie and his supporters are mostly of the taker mindset, out to pillage and plunder this nation while there is still something they can take(steal).

              Trump supporters look more the type whom what to recover lost ground on ways and means to make this nation productive, secure, and 'great' as it once was.

              These two candidates are opposite poles from each other. Such would seem from their political speak and the support base they seem to have gathered.

                  Well, there's serious talk she'll make Elizabeth Warren (aka Pocahontas) her VP choice. There's a boat anchor that makes Joe Biden look like a genius...

                    That's a mistake. A candidate should pick a running make whose attributes balance their candidate's shortfalls.

                    But I can't say I would be displeased. As you've pointed out, that choice would only help Trump.

                      Isn’t the term “honest liberal” a contradiction?

                        Warren's the sort of uber Progressive that will alienate 80% of the electorate and energize the other 20% to no end.

                          Sounds perfect! I really don't like trump, but he is preferable to Hillary.

                            Pretty much my attitude. I would have preferred Cruz, but Trump will do.

                              If that happens Trump is guaranteed to win she'll probably run with a more centrist VP to try and get some Republicans not happy with Trump.
