Real Feminists Support Bernie Sanders

Posted on | January 1, 2016 | 27 Comments

 

One of the things I notice while searching feminist Tumblr accounts is the high level of support for Bernie Sanders. This wouldn’t seem to make sense — shouldn’t feminists support Hillary Clinton? But feminism is a left-wing movement and Sanders is an unapologetic socialist, plus Hillary Clinton has a history of defending “rape culture”:

Hillary Clinton claims to be pro-women, yet has actively worked to ruin lives of so many of them. She’s running on a “feminist platform” — she’s even dared to say that sexual-assault survivors have a “right to be believed” — despite the fact that what she did to the women who accused Bill went far beyond not believing them. She attacked them. When allegations of sexual misconduct emerged during Bill’s 1992 presidential run, she’s reported to have said “Who is going to find out? These women are trash. Nobody’s going to believe them.” Multiple people also report that she called the women “sluts” and “whores” — you know, for daring to be raped. A private investigator named Ivan Duda claims that, after Bill lost his second governor’s race, Hillary told him: “I want you to get rid of all these b****** he’s seeing . . . I want you to give me the names and addresses and phone numbers, and we can get them under control.”

That’s from Katherine Timpf at National Review, who is definitely not a socialist for Sanders. And I’m neither a socialist nor a feminist, so I certainly can’t advise socialist feminists whom to support. But it is newsworthy, I think, that the Democrats are the party of socialists and feminists. And also, rapists.

    We like to deride leftists as morons, but even they dislike the stench of hypocrisy. And even in their highly skewed fantasy world, they’re capable of detecting it.
    Of course, many of them are also hate-filled hypocrites so when Bernie loses the nomination, many of these feminists will swallow hard (HA!) and vote for Hillary anyway.

    But some of them won’t.

    This was always why Hillary was going to lose: she excites NOBODY. And if there’s one thing that’s necessary to really turn out the drones, it’s emotional appeal.

    Insofar as feminists are anything more than partisan Democrats, they are keenly aware that left-wing men are generally scum. In fact, if you study the history of the Women’s Liberation Movement, you discover that radical feminism began because left-wing women were tired of being treated like crap by the scummy men who led the civil rights movement and the anti-Vietnam war movement. Women on the Left have a low opinion of men because the only men they hang around with are vicious Commie scum.

    Coincidentally (or not), this is the same reason so many strippers hate men. They only see the worst side of them. That’s why when I dated one (many years ago), I made sure she’d only been in the business less than 6 months.

    She was a sweet girl, actually.

    Most recent example of this phenomenon is the “Progressive” lobbying firm that closed it’s doors over sexual harassment.

    Feminists: Feel The Bern!

  • Finrod Felagund

    And the leftist women saying that this was just one of at least a dozen just like it.

    I’ll offer a partial dissent.
    1. Bilge Clinton has a vigorous (though not unerring) Lounge Lizard’s sense of whom are the women in the room who will lie down for just about anyone who’s important in some sphere. I’m not surprised Hildebeast didn’t think much of his conquests. With an exception here or there, they were floozies. No decent woman would have touched that pecker-head and even a scuffed-up character like Kathleen Willey turned him down.
    2. Women married to serial adulterers tell themselves stories to live. One story (and commonly a true one), is that the ho’s come and go, I stay, and I stay because I’m worth holding on to. I had a first degree relative who could have explained to you what this feels like in real time.
    3. Hildebeast does not care about flesh-and-blood human beings and the women her husband actually injured are not conceived of in her lizard brain as injured parties, but as people in her way. What do you do to people in your way? You run them over…
    4. Look at the women on the lists of his conquests. A run of known sluts (Monica Lewinsky, Belinda Stronach), women who’ve spent their lives in occupations where they display themselves (TV hosts, models), and hustlers who work the fringes of the Democratic Party. The closest to normal is this lawyer (note, still a skeezy occupation) in Texas who first met him in 1958 and had some sort of odd same-time-next-year relationship with him for 16 years (starting around the time he married Hildebeast). Run down the list of the women in his peers’ lives and ask which ones resemble his known conquests in any particular.

    Bill and Hill totally deserve each other, I’ll say that.

    I had relatives working in the Arkansas state government during Bill Clinton’s governorship.

    Arkansas can be a very enthusiastic state. I don’t know how many universities and colleges are there, but I do know that every single person from Arkansas that I ever met could do the “Soooo-EEEE” of of the U of A Razorbacks. And they would do it at the drop of a hat.

    They are incredibly proud of things that their state has done or the businesses successes that happened in their state.

    When Clinton was running for President, not a one of my relatives would say anything about him. They wouldn’t say anything bad, they wouldn’t say anything at all.

    That told me almost everything I needed to know about the man. And it made me wonder about the woman that would marry him and stay married to him.

    Feminists for Bernie Sanders are just taking their Marxism from subtext to text.

    Strippers and other so-called “sex workers” see the worst behavior by the worst men and, like feminists, generalize the worst examples as representative of all men.

  • Matt_SE

    Not really. We weren’t together that long and it wasn’t my place to tell her how to lead her life. Also, I’m not sure she had a lot of aptitudes besides stripping.
    If we’d stayed together longer, and especially if I had a job that could’ve supported both of us, I would have insisted that she stop.

  • mole

    Gee women voting for a fiscally incontinent old man who promises free stuff?
    The standard “sugar daddy government” playbook turned up to 11 by an idiot who knows he will never live long enough to have to pay the piper.

    I dont think my surprised face can handle how surprised I am By that information.

  • mole

    Thats pretty telling.
    A man they should be gushing about and the best they can manage is silence?
