Boy! I Remember Now Why I DISLIKE Hillary Clinton So Much- 'SHOUTING' [View all]

I'm a woman. Yes, I would like to see a woman be president, just like I'm glad women can vote, serve on juries, have their own credit cards, etc. BUT I don't want to vote for a woman JUST BECAUSE SHE IS A WOMAN (I mean, I'm not voting for Carly Fiorina, who ran HP into the ground, wouldn't vote for a Republican anyway) . And there's no mistaking that Clinton is using her gender as a reason to vote for her, regardless of her platform positions on issues. It's the sister of the Poor Poor Me I'm A White Male Republican victim baloney that plays so well with the Republicans. Believe me, I understand how women have to overcome all types of male baloney and am a feminist, but that's exactly WHY I don't like to see this type of pandering to women BY a woman. Clinton must think women are morons that will vote her just because. Otherwise, she would not have taken this comment of Bernie Sanders, which had nothing at all to do with gender, and turned it into a "LOOK AT ME I REFUSE TO BE VICTIMIZED" statement.


Here's what Sanders said at the CNN Debate

SANDERS: As a senator from a rural state, what I can tell Secretary Clinton, that all the shouting in the world is not going to do what I would hope all of us want, and that is keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have those guns and end this horrible violence that we are seeing.

I believe that there is a consensus in this country. A consensus has said we need to strengthen and expand instant background checks, do away with this gun show loophole, that we have to address the issue of mental health, that we have to deal with the strawman purchasing issue, and that when we develop that consensus, we can finally, finally do something to address this issue.


Yes. I agree with Bernie Sanders. I live in Texas, which is most likely very much like Vermont in how people feel about their guns. Heck, remember the pic of Rick Perry with his gun held up in the air and him talking about shooting a coyote while on a morning run (which I think, by the way, was complete bs)? My family has 4 guns, Texas passed open-carry and even the zoo has an issue with people trying to bring their guns in. I don't personally like the flaunting of guns, especially open carry, but some of the more paranoid in Texas worry that the government is trying to take their guns away. It's simply a very emotional issue and yes, people on all sides SHOUT at each other down here about what they believe (witness my Facebook feed which is full of people from my locale that SHOUT that nobody is going to take our guns away, and how christian they are).

Here's what Clinton said last night at the Iowa Democrat Party JJ dinner

“Sometimes when a woman speaks out people think it’s shouting,” she intoned — a reference to Sanders’ accusation that she was “shouting” about gun control during the debate.

Seems to me that Clinton is trying to take the emphasis away from what Sanders SAID, which is that he supports strengthening and expanding instant background checks, do away with the gun show loophole, etc. And instead of talking about the ISSUE of gun control, make it a whiny "Oh, He's Complaining about ME or Complaining about Women shouting" where he was not. What, in order to capture the "I am A Victim" female votes?????? If she believes that she has a point to make regarding Sander's positions on gun control, then make them based on that and not a side route through Victimhood. I like to think women are smarter than to fall for this.

P.S. Speaking of victims. As a side note, in Clinton's pandering to women and appealing to their victimhood, she said this at the CNN debate. I disagree with this too. The primary victims of war are the people, men AND women, who FOUGHT in the wars. The people that died were not the primary victims? The people that were injured and lived are not the primary victims? Please. The ONLY reason to say something like this is to appeal to women believing themselves to be THE victims. Enough with female victimhood.
