In a similar way to how depictions of Muhammad are seen as “offensive,” MSNBC has suggested that mere mention of the Prophet Hillary (peace be upon her) is a sexist slur.
During radio host Stephanie Miller’s rant on Politics Nation with Al Sharpton yesterday, a caption appeared under her which read, “HILLARY CLINTON SLAMS GOP CANDIDATES FOR TALKING ABOUT HER”.
Is MSNBC seriously pushing the notion that merely talking about Hillary Clinton (presumably in anything other than a fawning, worshipful tone) is somehow offensive or sexist?
The context of Miller’s spiel suggests that this is exactly what MSNBC was attempting to imply.
“What I like as a woman, Rev, is keep playing this age card and this sexist card, we’re going to have, like, a hundred percent turnout of everyone in the country with a vagina,” says Miller, who is presumably satisfied that Clinton’s presidential attributes need not extend any further than her genitals.
Miller then begs, “please take us back to a third Clinton term”.
Warnings that leftists would attempt to shut down legitimate criticism of Hillary by invoking sexism, just as dissent against Obama was characterized as racist, have been replete, but that hasn’t stopped the likes of MSNBC from doing exactly that. Scrutiny of Clinton’s email scandal has also been framed as misogynistic by her supporters.
Last month, pro-Hillary group HRC Super Volunteers told the New York Times that they would be on the lookout for “sexist” words used by the media in reference to Clinton and her campaign.
In exalting Hillary as a champion for women, her cheerleaders have conveniently ignored the fact that the Clinton Foundation takes money from some of the worst women’s rights abusers on the planet, including at least $10 million since 2001 from Saudi Arabia, a country that treats female drivers as terrorists and oversees a system of “violence against women, human trafficking and gender discrimination”.
