Hillary Clinton supporters are reacting to the controversy over the former Secretary of State’s email scandal by claiming that criticism of Hillary is “sexist”.
As the fiasco deepens after revelations that there are huge gaps in email records from when the former First Lady was involved in policy concerning the military operation in Libya, Hillary’s backers are on the defensive.
While many conservatives cite the scandal as an illustration of how Hillary is inherently untrustworthy, her likely voters insist that the outrage is merely a prejudiced response to the fact that she is a woman.
A post over on far left blog the Daily Kos asserts that questions over Hillary keeping her emails on a private server are really about, “Republican fear of having a vagina in control of the White House.”
The blog labels Hillary an, “intelligent, philanthropic, loud and proud feminist that scares middle-aged white men”.
Hillary supporters are all over Twitter regurgitating the same rhetoric and characterizing criticism of Hillary as “sexist”.
I have my issues with Hillary Clinton, but GOP efforts to destroy her are uniformly petty, pathetic & sexist. Gross.

If you are dissing on Hillary Clinton – make sure you aren't being sexist. The test is: would you say the same thing if she was a man

This is just a taste of what we can expect over the next 18 months as Hillary prepares to attach her campaign to the feminist cart horse.
Just as some leftists attempted to shut down dissent against President Obama by labeling all criticism “racist,” Hillary’s supporters won’t be shy in playing the gender card over and over again.
The Clinton Foundation launched a new video campaign yesterday in which high profile stars bemoan the “wage gap” in the United States which sees women paid just 77 cents on the dollar compared to men.
In reality, the “wage gap” is a completely debunked myth. As Christina Hoff Sommers documents, “No matter how many times this wage gap claim is decisively refuted by economists, it always comes back. The bottom line: the 23-cent gender pay gap is simply the difference between the average earnings of all men and women working full-time. It does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure or hours worked per week. When such relevant factors are considered, the wage gap narrows to the point of vanishing.”
However, there is a real “wage gap” within Clinton’s own foundation, which pays her female staff just 63 cents for every dollar that male employees make.
“A required 2013 IRS tax document that lists the organization’s senior executives (rather than all employees) revealed the apparent male-dominated 37 percent salary disparity,” reports the the Inqusitr.
Hillary’s alliance with third wave feminism makes for a perfect combination given that the political foundation of both is based on contrived victimhood and rampant hypocrisy, but that won’t stop her supporters crying “sexism” at every available opportunity.
