Hillary Thinks Republicans Share Terrorists' View of Women

Last time we checked, most Republicans argue for policies that promote life.

While stalking the campaign trail Thursday, Hillary Clinton fired a bazooka at the Republican Party and missed. Clinton slammed the stances several GOP candidates hold on “women’s issues” such as equal pay, reproductive health care and abortion. She said, “Extreme views about women? We expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world. But it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States.” You could see the poor politician from Arkansas New York Washington struggling to even stand in the shadow of Democrat orator William Jennings Bryan. She’s more akin to Barack Obama, who recently declared Iranian hardliners were “making a common cause with the Republican caucus.” Hillary’s comment smacks of desperation to be a cool grandma, to float a stalling campaign. Before Clinton wants to unearth the hatchet and fight the “War on Women,” she might want to do some research. While her Senate office paid women 72 cents for every dollar it paid men, Carly Fiorina’s campaign already bridged the gender pay gap. Last time we checked, most Republicans argue for policies that promote life. The Islamic State institutionalized sex slavery because they believe raping 12-year-old Yazidi girls is an act of worship. Is that really the comparison she wants to make?
