Hillary Runs From Militant Feminism

Women on the Left can see through Clinton's ideological façade.

In an effort to mitigate the rising voices advocating for militant feminism surrounding her campaign, Hillary Clinton said in Thursday night’s debate that she’s “not asking people to support me because I’m a woman.” Recently, feminist icon Gloria Steinem went on television to say all the women who are supporting Bernie Sanders were only supporting him because “the boys are with Bernie.” More infamously, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright told supporters at a Clinton rally — with Clinton standing to her right — “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”

At the PBS Democrat debate in Milwaukee, debate moderator Judy Woodruff challenged Clinton on Albright’s statement. Clinton merely changed the subject and repeated her tired platform. “Well, look, I think she’s been saying that for as long as I’ve known her, which is about 25 years,” Clinton said dismissively. “But it doesn’t change my view that we need to empower everyone — women and men — to make the best decisions in their minds that they can make.”

As a woman who decidedly did not support other women who accused her husband of rape, Clinton’s having a hard time with this line of questioning. According to feminist Camille Paglia, Clinton spent upwards of 25 years hobnobbing with fascist feminists with their “contemptuous bitterness” toward men. And yet Clinton is now an advocate for everybody? Women on the Left can see through Clinton’s ideological façade.
