.@HillaryClinton urges women to be resilient in the face of sexism and misogyny.
Extended interview: http://on.cc.com/2zoxfHj
Three, heck let’s call them “leaders” of the faltering Democratic Party have been busy in the last few days doing something far worse than mansplaning, they’ve been busy manshaming as in shaming men for being self righteous and entitled and, and, well….men.
First came that pillar of politics (just joking) the Democratic National Convention who turned a few job vacancies into a study in identity politics.
It was a story that was originally published by the Daily Wire. The gist of which was quite simple (at first), the DNC discovered a need for IT personnel (no word as to whether or not they were trying to replace some, er….vacancies that occurred during the tenure of the darling of the Democratic Party Debbie Wasserman Schultz) but from there the plot thickened (or sickened if you will)
In an email that was unintentionally hilarious in light of rest of the story the DNC stated that
Unfortunately that tidbit of information couldn’t stand on it’s own – heck there wasn’t even a word deriding the male species in it. Luckily the DNC’s Madeleine Leader corrected that oversight, insuring that everyone at the DNC understood that diversity and life experiences was swell, but in this case it excluded “cisgender straight white males”
For those among you unaware of just what in the hell “cisgender” means – it is defined by Wikipedia as
“…a term for people whose gender identity matches the sex that they were assigned at birth. Cisgender may also be defined as those who have “a gender identity or perform a gender role society considers appropriate for one’s sex”.
So basically the DNC wasn’t looking for icky “straight, white males”
Imagine for one mad moment what would happen if your place of employment put out an email about some jobs that were available but they included the phrase “Hey we don’t want any gay black guys, especially if they identify as women” The backlash from the media and the Justice Department would be quick and merciless, in fact your business would be lucky to still be around at the end of the day.
Now it’s easy to say “Heck, that’s the DNC – nobody takes them seriously!” Which while true, doesn’t render this er, hmmmm “clerical error“ on the part of the DNC any less inflammatory. One might well ask “Isn’t this a massive violation of Section VII of the civil rights act? Of course it is! That is unless there is a extremely tiny and rarely referenced “straight white male” exclusion buried somewhere in the text
As hard as it might be to believe – this was only the first salvo that Progressive liberals fired in a wacky week of war on the male gender in general and those of the pesky straight white male species specifically
Michelle Obama (fresh from shaming those women who were no doubt cowed by their mean old boy friends and husbands into voting for that evil Donald Trump) while speaking at the “Obama foundation international summit” (which was apparently the smuggest title the Obama’s could come up with) in Chicago decided to set her sights on those evil men (while retaining a healthy backhand with which to swat women) by asking everyone who would listen
And informing those self righteous evil men that
It appears that the liberal hive is attempting to further dehumanize straight white males to the point that nothing that happens to them will matter. Violence against straight white males will be treated with a “Well what do you expect?” reaction
The third “leader” of the left (although her once bosom buddies are abandoning her in droves) in a unwanted and for the most part unwatched continuance of her endless “bitching about why I lost” tour decided to add her brilliant reflections on why men are awful to the mix (just kidding about the brilliant part)
Yeah Hillary is a great example of resiliency in the face of sexism and misogyny except for when she isn’t and wasn’t
Apparently the left somehow believes that this policy of exclusion will help prepare them for the 2018 Midterms. Good thing they aren’t going to require anyone who is (God forbid!) Pro Life or (Gasp!) anyone who would identify as a straight white male to help them in their effort to flip Congress, maybe that’s why they depend upon the dead vote so badly. Dead people don’t express their dissension.
