Over the past several days, prominent feminists Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright have dropped some pretty damning remarks regarding the female vote in the 2016 presidential election. During a campaign event in New Hampshire, Albright was stumping for Hillary Clinton when she told the audience, “Just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”
Not long after Albright’s remarks started making the rounds, noted feminist (and step-mother of Christian Bale) Gloria Steinem told Bill Maher the following:
“Women are more for Hillary Clinton than men are… First of all, women get more radical as we get older, because we experience…Not to over-generalize, but…Men tend to get more conservative because they gain power as they age, women get more radical because they lose power as they age. When you’re young, you’re thinking, where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie…”
Although Steinem has since apologized for her comments, the point remains. Feminist believe that any women who don’t vote for Hillary Clinton are betraying not only Hillary, but all of womenkind. The most ironic part of the entire debacle is that both Albright and Steinem have completely disregarded the other female candidate running for president, Carly Fiorina. Why wouldn’t they include Fiorina in their “Who run the world? Girls!” mantra? Because she’s a Republican, of course. Republican women are like an endangered species to feminists, so they try to ignore their existence.
In an interview Monday with Fox News Radio‘s “John Gibson Show,” Fiorina responded to Albright and Steinem’s comments.
“That’s kind of what the left has been saying for a long time, that it’s only if you agree with them, it’s only if you support their orthodoxy that you count. That’s why they have this war on women, that’s why my candidacy has been called an offense to women by pro-abortion groups. Women, like men, should be free to choose our own lives, choose our own opinions, choose our own candidates.”
Even MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough blasted both feminists for suggesting that women had to align with Clinton purely because of her gender. TheBlaze reported that Scarborough ranted against Steinem and Albright, saying, “Where were these women in 1998 when a young 22-yr-old intern was taken advantage of in the Oval Office?” If an MSNBC host can see through their blatant hypocrisy, why can’t these women? It’s because they’re blinded by their own gender bias whether they’re willing to admit it or not.
