Hillary Clinton seems convinced that running a slimy gutter campaign will “energize” women and cow men into voting for her. But let’s face reality: whatever happens on November 8, Clinton and her obviously proto-partisan supporters in the media will be principally responsible for taking the lowest possible road to “victory.” Yes, this election is being “rigged,” but not by voter fraud, but by the all-out assault by the media to portray Donald Trump as the number one enemy of all women, and making him the whipping boy for the “sins” of all men. This is supposed to be a “presidential” election? Trump certainly hasn’t “elevated” the conversation with some of his more outlandish charges, but on the other hand, Clinton has demonstrated her own misandry over and over again, deploying the gender “victim” card at every conceivable opportunity.
Clinton has feebly claimed that she is an “issues” candidate and offers real “policies.” But in reality she offers nothing but two things: a political “philosophy” that is almost impossible to pin down, given her habit of contradicting herself when addressing two different audiences expecting to hear two different policy positions—and, of course, playing the gender card for all its hysterical worth. The Clinton camp seems to believe that if it sends out its surrogates to do her dirtiest work, then she won’t be personally stained by it. But one wonders if this playing the low road is alienating as many male voters as it is serving the “outrage” of female voters susceptible to this kind of harangue.
Take for instance Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s surrogate speech in New Hampshire the other day, which she railed against Trump thus:
He thinks that because he has a mouthful of Tic Tacs that he can force himself on any woman within groping distance. Women have had it with guys like you. Nasty women have really had it with guys like you. Nasty women are tough. Nasty women are smart. And nasty women vote. We nasty women are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes to get you out of our lives forever.
Hmm. I seem to recall that Bill Clinton--enabled by Hillary--was accused of much more than mere "groping" when he was elected president--and re-elected. As bad as Warren's hypocrisy sounds in the reading, it was far worse in the hearing; Warren’s tone was a revolting mixture of self-righteousness, condescension, tearful whining and inflammatory feminist hysteria. Indeed, it is a highly disturbing thought to know that we actually have people like this in the U.S. Senate, although it should be pointed out that Warren is a fringe outlier politically and has almost no influence in policy making as of this time, although that could change if Clinton is elected and puts her in her cabinet.
Will we be “ruled” by people who behind closed doors share a animosity of half the population and will spend most of their time concocting new ways of making them “pay” for being what they are? Warren isn’t the only Clinton “surrogate” to go on the road attempting to paint Trump as the embodiment of a society run by “misogynists” and women-haters. The utter lack of emotional control and the failure to take a higher road by these surrogates (which some may say is a weakness peculiar to a certain gender) is to be expected, because they reflect the same in Clinton. Is this the kind of “leadership” and representation of all Americans we can expect from a Hillary Clinton administration—if “administration” is something that will have any coin in such, given Clinton’s repeated disregard for laws and regulations?
After listening to Warren’s comments, I can only say this further: “Nasty” men can vote too, and I suspect that in regard to any male voters still sitting on the fence “undecided” who listened to Warren's comments on the Clinton News Network or elsewhere, there is as good a chance as not that they were deeply offended and alienated by what they heard, even if they do not say so out loud. I have been a life –long Democrat who can not imagine himself voting for a Republican under any circumstances. That has not changed; I have no intention of voting for Trump. But if being a corrupt and a pathological liar wasn’t already bad enough, engaging in despicable gutter-level gender hysteria has turned any microscopic scintilla of a chance that I will even consider contemplating voting for Clinton has been annihilated for good.
