What does Hillary's 'Women, women, women,' campaign say to men?
Eating is an important women's issue. So is sleeping. So is getting up in the morning and putting on clothes. Both of those are womens' issues too.
Welcome to the obnoxious way Hillary Clinton talks.
In a state with a history of electing women to its highest offices, and on the 20th anniversary of her famous speech in Beijing, where as First Lady she declared “women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights,” Hillary Clinton defined the entire economic agenda of her 2016 campaign as a women's issue.
Whoa. Women's rights are a component (subset) of human rights, yes. But human rights equals women's rights? What about men's rights? Hillary seems to be saying that "human rights" doesn't include half the people on the planet.
“I’m a proud lifelong fighter for women’s issues,” Clinton told a crowd of about 1,000 supporters.
Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and all the other women her husband was accused of molesting and raping will be surprised to hear that, seeing that Clinton never defended any of them and by her willful silence seemed to be a willful enabler of her husband's very anti-women behavior.
“I firmly believe what’s good for women is good for America,” Clinton said.
How about what's good for men? Is that good for Canada, or Mexico? Just turn it around. Suppose Ted Cruz had said, "I firmly believe what's good for men is good for America"; he'd be destroyed in the media, and rightfully so. But when Hillary says it about women, she's elevated to the level of super-virtuous, just one step below an illegal alien.
“Raising the minimum wage is a women’s issue,” she said. “Holding corporations accountable when they gouge us on drug prices, pollute our environment or exploit workers are women’s issues.” Corporations profit-sharing with their employees, college affordability, and creating a pathway to citizenship for immigrants, she added, were all women’s issues, too.
That's funny because I thought men were also affected by the minimum wage, drug prices, college affordability, and the invasion of illegal aliens too.
This is how Hillary has to campaign. She can't say, "These are issues that affect all Americans." She pretends that these are only "womens' issues" when they affect all people--women and men. Hillary does this because she has no record to run on, so the only issue she can run on is the fact that she is (technically) a woman. Hence the blatantly sexist appeals. At least this time she didn't tell people to vote for her because her mother was also a woman.
Hillary Clinton is a sexist bigot. No man would be allowed to get away with labeling certain issues "men issues" like she has with "womens' issues." By excluding the concerns of men from her campaign, she is demeaning all men and saying the election is only about one gender. I would really love it if a Republican candidate would call her on her sexist nonsense.
Mrs Clinton said. “Republicans actually say I’m playing the gender card. Well, if calling for equal pay and paid leave and women’s health is playing the gender card, deal me in.”
What a smug bigot, secure in the belief that no one will challenge her sexist drivel. Well, if Hillary Clinton is playing cards, it looks like Old Maid to me.
