A Loser Mentality

11 Feb 2016 /

Don’t hesitate to vote with your uterus. — Hillary Clinton (paraphrased)

“Women should vote for women” is a loser mentality. I’m glad to see that it’s not working.

The Clinton camp is also tagging as “sexist” criticism that isn’t remotely sexist, just as criticism of President Obama is routinely tagged as “racist,” as though there’s no substantive reason why anyone would not like these two people.

I’m not a Bernie Sanders fan but I haven’t heard Sanders or anyone affiliated with him even one time mention that he’s Jewish, that he’d be the first Jewish president, that all Jews should vote for him or that criticism of him is anti-semitic.

    Hillary Clinton primarily appeals to white women of a certain age. Essentially, these are typified by those aging flower children trying to relive the 1960s. These women constitute a significant voting bloc within the Democratic Party. They also represent one of the principal constituencies of the Democratic Party. The other being people of color.

    To understand the post-modern Democratic Party requires going back to the early 19th century origins of the modern feminist movement as an offshoot of abolition. Since that time, women’s liberation and civil rights have been intertwined. This almost caused a Democratic fracture in the days leading up to the 2008 presidential election.
