Hillary Clinton Should Get All Women's Votes, Gloria Steinem And Madeline Albright Declare [COMMENTARY]
Two prominent American women, Gloria Steinem and Madeline Albright, abandoned women's rights and equality by encouraging young women to forget using their brains - and just cast the boob and vagina vote for Hillary.
While stumping for Hillary Clinton in Concord, N.H., former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Saturday said there was a "special place in hell" for women who backed Sen. Bernie Sanders over Clinton in the New Hampshire primary.
I wonder if Albright thinks women should be perpetually barefoot and pregnant, too. Implying that women shouldn't use their brains and vote according to gender criteria even if you think there's a better candidate who serves your interests - dare we say a male - is taking identity politics to a new offensive level. Sounds like Albright wants to take women back to the Dark Ages.
I wonder if Albright believes there's a special place in hell for men like Bill Clinton who repeatedly disrespect their wives by committing serial affairs?
Better yet, going with this "vote for me because I look like you" approach, does Albright think blacks should vote for black candidates only or be damned to hell? If so, which Democrat candidate should blacks vote for in Albright's mind? Sanders or Hillary?
Steinem, Queen of the 1960s feminist revolution, also spent the weekend belittling women, implying they are mindless gender groupies who must vote for Hillary. Appearing on Bill Maher's HBO show she implied that young women are only supporting Sanders to pick up boys.
"When you're young, you're thinking 'Where are the boys?' the boys are with Bernie," she quipped. Before that she insulted young women, saying that while "men tend to get more conservative because they gain power as they age, women get more radical because they lose power as they age."
Though she issued an apology later on Facebook, the anti-feminist, man-hating hypocrisy oozing from the mouths of both Steinem and Albright demonstrates they think America's female millennials can be manipulated for votes.
Kidding aside, Albright's comments reveal the desperation of Hillary's campaign in New Hampshire, and frankly, within the Democrat party. The fact is Sanders is appealing to millennials - young women included - because he's offering free college - free everything - and because they see Hillary for what she is: a corrupt, ruthless career politician who will say and do anything to get elected.
According to Associated Press polling conducted in Iowa last week, women 29-and-younger voted, 6-to-1, in favor of Sanders over Clinton. Likewise in New Hampshire, polls indicate Sanders holds the same large lead among young women.
Clinton may be running to become the nation's first female president, but the fact that the next generation of female leaders finds her grossly unappealing is a special kind of character indictment.
