Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Madeleine Albright & the sad sound of feminist desperation by Suzanne Venker
On Friday, Gloria Steinem told Bill Maher that young women are only voting for Sanders because that’s where the boys are. It seems women don’t think clearly when they have boys on their mind—says a feminist.
And on Saturday, at a rally in New Hampshire for Mrs. Clinton, Madeleine Albright shouted, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” To which Hillary cheered in response. Nothing like a little intimidation to rein people in.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Clinton & Co. just dug their own grave. American women, apparently now even left-wing women, are not being the good feminists they’re supposed to be. Instead, they’re thinking for themselves. And they’re tired of being told they owe the ability to breathe to the women who came before them.
Among other takes this illustrates the tyrannical development if leftist movements. Without the competition of ideas there is the tyrant of ideas. Identity politics is threatened by individualsim.
Part of the decay of the progressive movement is their success is liberating women and minorities. The old guard still wishes to fight the war of their youth, because they are out of original ideas. The biggest threat to their power is their victory.
