NYT Feminists Still Giddy About Hillary's Chances In 2016: Any Gender Problems Have Been 'Wiped Out'

NYT Feminists Still Giddy About Hillary's Chances In 2016: Any Gender Problems Have Been 'Wiped Out' By Tim Graham Created 05/26/2013 - 7:52am

Politico’s Katie Glueck reported two feminists who’ve written opinion columns for The New York Times are still giddy about Hillary Clinton’s chances in 2016. Benghazi, schmengazi.

Appearing Thursday at the liberal Center for American Progress, former Times columnist Anna Quindlen asserted any gender-related problems Hillary encountered in previous races have been “wiped out,” and her gender would only be an asset if she runs in 2016.

“I think the gender issue as a problem or a deal breaker — ‘Can we have a woman as president of the United States?’ … it was wiped out,” Quindlen said. “It was wiped out when she ran and nearly won in 2008, and it since has been even further wiped out by her performance as secretary of state.”

Feminists don’t want to hear anything about four Americans dying because the female Secretary of State somehow failed in her duties. That ought to at least slow down liberals from saying Hillary’s allegedly stellar performance has “wiped out” any concerns about her competence, irrespective of gender.

“I think there will be many issues around her candidacy if she runs in 2016,” Quindlen continued. “I do not think her gender will be one except that there will be a whole bunch of women quietly saying, ‘Yay,’ every day [until] the election.”

Current Times columnist and former editorial page editor Gail Collins was eager to agree:

“When she ran for the Senate, … you’d see these mobs of women, … many of them tended to be middle-aged. I took from them a sense of excitement about the idea that you can have your life, raise a family, … maybe then, once when the kids are gone, you can have some amazing thing — not just another job or degree but just some spectacular adventure,” Collins said. “That seems to me to be the great Hillary message that just resonates with women of a certain age.”

The event was tied to the 50th anniversary publication of Betty Friedan’s feminist manifesto “The Feminine Mystique.” Collins wrote a new Introduction, and Quindlen wrote an Afterword.

She could call a press conference with Satan, and the two of them eat live babies, and it would not matter to these people.

Hillary! has blood on her hands. If she is even the Dem nominee, it will be obvious that our country has been dumbed down to the point of extinction of the American Dream.

This is reality, as seen through their Weltanschauung “world view”.

“The fundamental cognitive orientation of an individual or society encompassing the entirety of the individual or society’s knowledge and point of view, including natural philosophy; fundamental, existential, and normative postulates; or themes, values, emotions, and ethics.”

In other words, their *entire* reality is seen through the lens of radical feminism vs. masculinity, a dichotomy in their minds between good and evil.

Others among the left have a Weltanschauung based entirely on race. Or “inequality”. Or radical environmentalism. Or a mish-mosh of all of them.

The bottom line is that such people are “defective units”, incapable of intellectual or emotional growth. Stunted, with perhaps a rare epiphany that normal people experienced in elementary school.

For example, Hillary, when her mother died, achieved such a petite epiphany, blurting out that “for the first time in her life, she had realized that there was something more important.”

It must be horrible to live like such people. Defining all of reality to fit some small prejudice. It’s no surprise that the concept of God is so beyond them.

If they run this Hillary imposer, ("what difference does it make!"), we will run Sarah Palin.

Bring it on, if you want a feminist war.

Who cares about her gender

People and living creatures have a sex (male or female)....words have a gender (masculine or feminine).

After pResident Zero, I think the majority of the American people are weary of liberal social experiments in the White House.

The 2008 election of Obama showed that we had reached that point. The 2012 election showed that we are well past that point.

I believe that Mrs. Bill will get the nomination and the presidency if she decides to go for it and if the kenyan decides to step down or is removed. Because of Benghazi shee seems eminently beatable so long as the Republicans in Congress don't pull their punches on the scandals which is not guaranteed or terribly likely. The Democrat base will go all out for her and the currently turned off millenials demographic will vote in very large numbers for her no matter what comes out of Benghazi so long as she doesn't get sent to prison. The real problem is the sure nomination of Jeb Bush by the Republican Party. As with all the other bobdoles that the Republicans nominate he will fail to rouse any enthusiasm among non activist conservatives and will lose.If there is a real split in the Republican Party and the conservatives form a COnstitution or American party then all bets are off.

A Dem female in 2016 will be nonstop women and gay issues. It will be front and center while America burns and terrorism increases. Plus, the Dems always have the Native America version of Hillary waiting in the wings.
