Well the Democrats have hit a new low. The sexist card has always been played by the Democrats against conservatives, but now they are even playing it against their own perhaps without even realizing it.
For quite a while Clinton and Sanders have been the only two remaining candidates in competition for the Democratic nomination. Yesterday, a journalist asked Sanders if continuing to campaign against Hillary Clinton is sexist, according to the Hill.
“Is that a serious question? Your question implies that any woman who is running for president is by definition the best candidate…If Hillary Clinton runs for president, your point is that it’s sexist for any man to oppose her? I don’t think it’s sexist. I think the issue is, first of all, our focus right now is running and winning right here in California. And the second point that I have made is that is absolutely imperative that we defeat Donald Trump.”
Sanders is totally right on this one. If one were to determine that yes, it is sexist for Sanders to run against Clinton is basically to say that it is sexist for any man to run against any woman, Democrat or Republican. By this logic, if Clinton wins the nomination, then one would have to say that it is sexist for Trump to run against Clinton. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the left tries to pull this trick assuming Clinton wins the nomination, but I digress. The left is appealing to standards of political correctness to push their candidate of choice.
The goal of the Democratic Party is to defeat the Republican nominee, now unfortunately for us that is Trump. Thus the Democrats should be supporting the candidate they believe can best beat Trump regardless of sex, race etc.
Not only is it ridiculous to assume that any man running against any woman is sexist for doing so, but that concept in and of itself is sexist. It is sexist to stereotype to such an extent that any man running against any woman is automatically a misogynist.
According to an article in Politico, one of Sanders critiques said:
“It’s not OK to let people with a long progressive record get away with being sexist.”
So why are we letting Hillary Clinton get away with it? I call double standard. Clinton has a long standing record of sexism. Only recently she was reported by the Daily Caller as having said that she can’t handle men that “go off the reservation.” That is just one of many similar examples.
This fight between Clinton and Sanders is nothing new. According to Politico:
“Sanders’ predicament has its roots in the first Democratic debate earlier this month, when the Vermont senator said “all the shouting in the world” won’t fix the country’s systemic problem with gun violence — a comment Clinton and her allies have since interpreted as an implicitly sexist filleting of the former secretary of state.”
The suggestion that this statement is sexist in the least is already ridiculous. How can it even be conjured that such a statement can be considered sexist is utterly inconceivable. Yet that is the far-left for you, using their tools even against their own and making up sheer nonsense, to push their candidate of choice.
