When America rejected Hillary Clinton, what they rejected was Obamacare, high taxes, political correctness, endless wars, NAFTA, and open borders.
Nowhere on that list is the rejection of anyone based on gender because that did not play a factor at all. However, the left can not admit this or their whole flawed agenda will be exposed.
So, instead, they say that sexism played a role in the defeat of one of the worst candidates to ever run on the Democratic ticket.
Breitbart News has just published an article showing that on Monday, a panel was “discussing women’s rights” at Georgetown University when Clinton blamed her loss to President Donald Trump on “a combination of misogyny caused by globalization anxiety” as well as “old-fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women.”
She refuses to acknowledge that her platform was 180 degrees opposite of Mr. Trump’s. Had he been a raging liberal and had she had his platform, she would have won. This is a fact that is completely lost on her and her party.
For that matter, except for Bernie Sanders (who lost because the DNC cheated him), no men did all that great during the campaign, either.
The left had a few forgettable candidates on the debate stage and even Gary Johnson did not do as well as many had hoped. Does anyone even remember Richard Duncan?
Therefore, men did not fare much better against Donald Trump than she did.
Despite all of these truths, Clinton said, “I see it as a reaction that is driven by lots of different motives, some of them having to do with people feeling insecure, frightened, disappointed, discouraged—name whatever emotion you want—about their lives and the ongoing globalization of the economy, which is leaving many people out.”
Well, to begin with, how is not supporting the obvious ills of globalism somehow tied to not supporting women? Nikki Haley is a woman and the right is all but tripping over themselves to be the first to call her “Madam President” someday, so gender does not seem to be an issue since Haley is not thought to be a globalist.
Globalism is simply a failed concept that needs to be fled from as if it were a burning gas station. That has nothing at all to do with the fact that Donald Trump is not a lady.
“And we haven’t seen anything yet. Wait until robotics and AI, artificial intelligence really takes off. So when people are insecure and anxious, they often defend against their own feeling by rejecting others. That often happens with minorities. It happens with ethnicities, races, religion and it also happens with respect to women,” Clinton added.
Again, she is so awfully wrong that we can all rejoice that she is not our president. Yes, and things like it are going to really harm everyone – male and female – when it comes to joblessness.
However, to imply that men are going to blame women or that whites are going to blame blacks for robots taking over is simply ridiculous.
There may be a backlash against companies replacing people with robots, but we saw this when car manufacturing became the norm.
For that matter, we saw it when cell phones took over most pagers and 99.9% of all payphones. Makers of those items took a hit, so it happens quite frequently as progress is made. That, for better or for worse, has nothing at all to do with gender.
“Any of you who have read my book about what happened know that I think misogyny and sexism was part of that campaign. It was one of the contributing factors, and some of it was old-fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women, and certainly the equality of women’s leadership, and some of it was an outgrowth of all this anxiety and insecurity that is playing on people and leading them in a hunt for scapegoats,” Clinton continued.
As we look at what she just said, we can see that to her, blaming the Democrats for continuing NAFTA, ruining health care, and leaving our border open is the same of dismissing their candidate for being female.
There is no connection here except in the mind of this failed candidate and the sycophants who listened to her spew her insanity at Georgetown University.
Lastly, she said, “We’ve got to leave that here at home, and that comes through the ballot box in an election year 2018 in the United States. There’s a lot that can be done to say wait a minute. We are not going backward when it comes to race and religion and sex and gay rights and all the rest of it. We are going to keep moving forward because we want an inclusive, tolerant society and that includes everybody. Not just some of us, but all of us.”
This implies that these liberties do not exist now when they really do. In other words, the Democrats are appearing to stick to the very same horrid ideas and claims that led to their defeat against Donald Trump.
Some people just never learn. Maybe if a man runs on this platform for the Democrats, he can lose to Mr. Trump, too!
