After reading Texts From Hillary, I realize all of this bears recognizing, because it can no longer be denied:.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, sexist-pig legislative clowns wouldn’t even try to heap all the degrading crap upon women we’ve witnessed in the past few years.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, no throwback to Pithecanthropus Erectus would be comparing women to chickens, cows and pigs.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, The Pope would be told to run the Vatican, not the country.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, we would have a President who actually IS “What a Feminist Looks Like”.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, odds would have been good that she would have shown up at that pig Darrell Issa’s hearing personally–and waited for him to tell her she’s not qualified to testify.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, the Attorney General would be rightfully challenging the Constitutionality of forcing women into vaginal probes, considering laws that make killing doctors and their patients”Justifiable Homicide”. Moronic Dipwads wouldn’t be calling Girl Scouts Lesbians.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, The Fair Pay act would have been passed in the first two years of the current administration, during which time our useless Democratic Party “of women” ignored it–except at 2010 election time as a scare tactic.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, women would no longer be forced to accept crumbs in gratitude. They would no longer have to beg for the rights to which they are entitled as human beings: They would simply be able to enjoy those rights. For a change.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, our President wouldn’t be repeatedly using women as bargaining chips. The Stupak Amendment wouldn’t have even been a thought, much less bear a Presidential signature. The Lilly Ledbetter order wouldn’t have even been needed because the Fair Pay Act would be in place and companies would Get The Message.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, women wouldn’t be used as hockey pucks and tools by which a President can divert attention and pump up opinion polls of women who have nowhere else to go.
Reality: The past four years have already proven: If Hillary Clinton were President, she would be spending more time working and less time vacationing and golfing.
Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, Tony Scalia would no longer be able to bleat about how women are not protected by the Constitution, because the ERA would have been shoved In His Pitted Face by now.
Reality: You get what you ask for.
Too many Democratic Women let the DNC bamboozle them. After all, if the Party can’t hold our rights over our heads, make us beg for crumbs, and ‘dole them out’ to us as if they are “in charge” of human rights of second class citizens who carry their water, and if they couldn’t make the same promises over and over again for decades and instill fear at election time, who would need them any longer?
Don’t let the same people con you again with all this talk of Hillary 2016 just to get your support for what’s already there, because all this sudden admiration from people like Ladder-Kicker NancyPelosi, who shot as many arrows as she could at Hillary in 2008, is just a bunch of manipulative bullshit to keep you close to the Democratic Party until the day after election 2012 — after which time, you will be forgotten again just like you were in 2008.
Words are cheap and action by Barack Obama has been pathetically scant for a guy who is supposed to be “What a Feminist Looks Like”. He spends plenty of time flapping his lips and stirring up turds on ‘behalf” of women when it benefits him. He spends little time actually doing anything useful for women, unless you include using them for his own gain by lobbing a Contraception Bomb over the fence in a timely way, knowing that the Republicans are stupid enough to react and help improve Barack’s wimminz approval polls. In the meantime, where is the Fair Pay Act that has been sitting around for nearly four years waiting for him to do something about it? Where’s that ERA that sat on Nancy’s desk for two years, while she and that other blowass Harry had the absolute power to do something about it? Where? Where? Where?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am pretty damned sick of choosing between Terrible and Horrible at election time, knowing that, as a woman, I HAVE NO real Representation. Hillary Clinton is literally beloved worldwide. She has been declared Most Admired Woman for 16 years consecutively. It’s only in the USA that she is disrespected, just as the rest of us women are disrespected by TWO parties. What part of this does not make you suspicious of this horrid patriarchy that has taken hold of two parties??? At what point do women finally realize they are 52% of the population and are being Had??? At what point does 52% of the population stand up and flat-out refuse to allow these two parties to block the right of “Personhood” to women? At this very moment, thanks to Republicans AND Democrats, Corporations have more “Personhood” than women do. Spermatazoa to have more “Personhood” than women do! So, all I can say is, if the women of the USA keep begging for instead of taking their rights, and if they continue to forget that they have the numbers to control the direction of this country ,if they continue to let these two Parties of Pigs control our vaginas, our incomes and our lives, then we can all expect the same woman-hating, manhood-insecure jerk-offs to manipulate us till the day we die.
Here is some huge food for thought to all my sisters everywhere: We’re on our own in fighting sexism and an entrenched nasty patriarchy –and we have the power to control the outcome of this fight, but only if we don’t let that power get watered down any longer by our penchant to help others with their causes, only to find they abandon us and do not stand beside us for OUR cause! If this remains the case, then we must stop standing in the rain and snow for everybody else and save our energy for our own cause, because it bears repeating: Women of the USA are on their own.
Hillary Clinton is the perfect example of how the mediocre patriarchy has kept real leadership down because of a missing piece of flesh that often doesn’t even work very well –only to find you can’t destroy REAL leadership. Hillary’s competence, wisdom and skill spring eternal — she doesn’t just flap her lips, she actually ACHIEVES — and it makes them crazy. Everything she does, she does well –and it makes them crazy. Hillary Clinton is a threat to mediocre men in power, of which there are many. Very many. Let’s just say that our government is lorded over by so many mediocre men that, in a real competition with Hillary, they can’t pass muster — and they know it. So, they do what they know how to do best. They trash her Womanhood. We should not discount the also male- dominated Press, Pundits and their friends, the “Comedians” in this charade either. I’m talking both sides of the politically-dominated media here. No Free Passes. These people also have a lot to lose, so they have been all too happy to join in on the bashing of a woman who is just plain better at everything than they are. Beware of the Trojan Horses they are spitting out about Hillary 2016, when their real goal is Obama 2012 or Romney 2012, depending on which button you press on the remote. Let’s put it this way: If Hillary Clinton threw her hat into the Presidential ring tomorrow morning, you would see the faces of FOX and MSNBC morph in minutes.
We women should not stand for this inexcusable and manipulative behavior from all sides for another minute. We not only should never forget, but we should never let THEM forget.
If the majority of women in the USA aren’t Sorry yet that Hillary, who had the most votes and the most delegates (even in the face of caucus cheating and intimidation!), didn’t become the Candidate For President, you’re slow. Very slow. Because no matter what happens in November, women are screwed. Your Hillary turn will always come. You are next. Sooner or later, you are Next. Unless you stop it and stop it Now.
As a final note in this rant, please make sure you read Dirty Words On Clean Skin before Election Day. It’s an emotionally jolting read for a reason: It’s the truth – and it should never be forgotten, especially on an election day. Just remember: You could have had a V8, but the Democratic Party made sure it wasn’t available. What have they done since then for you?? Take your time. I’ll wait.
In the meantime, since we women are on our own, please remember Maya Angelou’s words when she read her famous, “Still I Rise” for Hillary – and take the same attitude and cue :
You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I’ll rise.
What is Hillary’s message for YOU? You only need to look to Ohio 2008 for your answer:
For everyone here in Ohio and across America who’s ever been counted out but refused to be knocked out, and for everyone who has stumbled but stood right back up, and for everyone who works hard and never gives up, this one is for you.
As Anita “Ani” Finlay, our own historian/author said to me in an email late last night,
We are her and she is us.
So ends my rant. But only For Now….
