If you were forced to choose a boss from between an incompetent but inoffensive clown, and an evil and cruel human monster, who would you choose? The evil and cruel boss? I doubt it.
And yet, that was the choice the media and pseudo leftists’ propaganda presented to the American voters: Hillary Clinton was the evil and cruel feminist candidate, and Trump the incompetent but inoffensive buffoon. The printed media, TV/cable ‘news’ and the pseudo-leftists media fed the voters, on a daily basis, that fake opposing characterization. These two cartoons encapsulate that message to perfection.
Even today, despite Trump’s cruel and unlawful actions with regard to immigration, the public still refers to him as a clown and buffoon. And despite having been ‘vanquished’, the pseudo-leftists and the mainstream media still refer to Hillary as the bitch, the power thirsty feminist who gave us Trump with her “incompetence”. Susan Sarandon went so far as to promote the propaganda that Hillary is more dangerous than Trump; that Hillary is evil and Trump a “clown”. No betrayal is more painful than the one coming from your own group.
The hatred promoted against her puts her, today, in danger of being dragged back into the cauldron of ‘send her to prison’ animosity. Bernie’s followers would happily unite with the ‘deplorables’ if Trump were to rekindle the promise to “investigate” her for the emails. She would be a good distraction for him; so, I’m actually waiting for him to go that way to keep us from attacking him.
Communication in these modern times is heavily based on images, even more than on word content. Even WordPress suggests new bloggers make ample use of images to illuminate their blog content. Images seem to be more powerful than words, and their effect or impact is almost instantaneous. We are aware that printed media is in decline, that social-media is the new vehicle of fast and effective communication. So, these two cartoons are just two examples. If you google Hillary Clinton memes, you are treated to ugly Hillary; do it for Trump, you get goofy images and him saying stupid things. It’s like what we had with Bush Jr. and Cheney: one was a clown president, the other the evil vice president. Except that no one cursed any of them for being ‘bitches”, or evil men. Not even the second time, when it was clear that Bush Jr. was no inoffensive clown. No one said ‘we have had men presidents for over 200 years, it’s time to not vote for one’, they are corrupt and cruel’.
For Hillary, Sanders demanded she be a Virgin Mary, just as he was almost blessed by the Pope.
With Hillary…the problem with her, the REAL problem no one dared to pronounce, was, not only her gender, but her feminism. I discussed that “real” problem many times on this blog. I still believe that the US, the white male elite in power can’t tolerate a feminist woman as their ‘boss’. So, they “supported” her while bashing her 24/7 about the emails and her ‘corrupt’ personality. No one liked her, according to the fake news media and the pseudo-leftists; despite having won the popular vote by three million votes!
When Trump spoke about his “high energy”, as compared to Hillary’s, it was a clear anti-woman statement. The pseudo-leftist kept referring to her as “that woman”, “that power thirsty woman”, and many other sexist insults. Gender and anti-feminism was at the top of the issues; no one wanted to touch that one with a long stick.
Until women come to accept that anti-feminism is here to stay and they must fight it in the open, here in the USA we will have to wait another 100 years before we get a woman president. We must be anti-imperialists, anti-racism, anti-everything you want. But we must NEVER again push the interests particular to half the population of the planet in the back burner.
The oppression of women has nothing to do with imperialism; it has existed since men learned to use their thumbs. Nations that are not imperialists today are guilty of abusing women even more than imperialists nations.
So, let’s get moving, girls. You are the revolutionary class today!
