Narcissistic, insecure men fear the powerful women who can play the game as well as they can, even beat them at their own game. That is at the core of the blind, misplaced hatred for Hillary Clinton—and the GOP women have drunk the Jonestown variety Kool-aid in its entirety.
I have known and worked for Hillary-Clintonesque women all my life: tough, take charge, no bullshit women. Hillarys are the women who, when men uttered “bitch” under your breath as they walked away, they became energized and stronger, like a vampire sucking fresh blood. Like Popeye eating his can of spinach, these women secretly and sometimes publicly wore the mantle as a sign of pride because it really meant, “You don’t have to like me, but dammit, you better respect me!”
Hillarys are women who, no matter what you do or say, they will beat you at your own game perhaps even destroy you if you get in their way, women who essentially can do as much damage or as much good as any man can, women who threaten the authority and the ability of the men who prefer to rule, who prefer that the women “know their place.” Hillarys feel they have as much a right to be at the head of the table as most men. The Right hated Hillary from day one because she refuses to stay home and bake cookies.
Balls aren’t tough. When you punch, grab or kick a man in the balls—no matter what size he is—he goes down. Period. End of story. Simply put, balls are weak and sensitive. However, whatever you do to a woman’s vagina—groping or otherwise—she still remains intact. Sorry Donald. In my opinion, Hillary is more of a man than Donald.
In her Cosmo article “Ways Vaginas Are Better Than Penises,” Lane More said it far better than I can:
“May no one ever use the word “pussy” as an insult again.
1. Your vagina can lift weights.
2. Clitorises have twice as many nerve endings as penises do.
3. Vaginas can have orgasms for days.
4. Menstrual blood could help patients suffering from heart failure.
5. Vaginas clean themselves.
6. Vaginas have the same pH level as a glass of wine, which is classy as hell.
7. Guys can become infertile if someone simply taps them in the balls.
8. Vaginas can pass children through them and be totally fine, while penises can break just by being bent a little during sex.”
When Trump says that Hillary doesn’t have the stamina, he’s so wrong, she has a vagina. There is no blow she can’t take and still stand up. Think about this: Putin is so scared of her, he is trying to rig the election. I am with Her. Obviously, Trump thinks he is a Russian man (notice how he dates only Eastern Bloc women) no American women will tolerate his behavior—see how quick he got rid of Marla Maples? When Ivanna got too smart and was running his business better than he was….gone. He is afraid of Hillarys.
My male motivation in supporting Hillary Clinton comes from the place where I believe that it is her time. You want real change? Put a woman in The Oval Office. It is our time as a country, as a nation in a leadership position, to have a strong, capable, feared woman at the helm. Think about it…Germany has Angela Merkel, Israel had Golda Meir, The U.K. had Margaret Thatcher . . . there are currently 22 women on the World Stage running major countries. Why do we think men have done such a great job?
Obviously, the majority of women in the GOP are used to and not only accept but also condone misogynistic behavior in their male leadership because no news person has been able to get one “talking head” to admit that the comments Trump has made or the positions that he has taken are flat out disgusting. Barbara Bush, however, is not having it, at all.
GOP women, when asked about the misogynist statements made by Trump,deflect to the best they got: Hillary’s lies; Hillary’s emails; Hillary’s husband’s infidelity; Benghazi; Hillary’s failed policies of 30 years . . . Apparently, they don’t even realize that Hillary hasn’t been in any policy-making position for 30 years.
On their best day, they trot out a Gold Star Mom who yells, “Hillary killed my son!” and while you sympathize, and while you understand her pain, and while she has a right to use her son’s memory in any way she sees fit. I ask where is the respect for her son’s memory so that you don’t use his death to support someone so vile? Where is the gravitas that you should show in the face of a campaign clearly labeled as racist and sexist that is headed straight into the toilet? Is that what her son stood for?
Take a lesson from the Muslim American family who lost their son. The dignity and gravitas of the Khan Family displayed for the cause they believe in. Who stood up with intellect and respect for their child’s memory in the face of rising anti-Muslim sentiment stoked by the Trump campaign. There is no dignity in using the death of an American soldier to advance the agenda of a narcissistic misogynist racist wanna-be fake dictator and you can hate me for calling her out if you like, but it’s time someone said it.
But what is glaring, and why she has had my vote from the moment Trump won against his cadre of ineffective opponents (and Jeb Bush was probably the best out of all of them), is this:
Hillary is out there trying to make a difference and sometimes she will get it wrong. And you will certainly take a hit, or more (many more, in her case) It only proves she is human. If she were a man, would they even dare to put her ex-lovers in the front row of a debate?
Putin doesn’t want her in office. I like that. I want that because we are in a cold-cyber war with Russia and only calm heads will prevail.
She IS A POLITICIAN, they lie, they mislead, they bend the truth to meet their agenda, their need to be elected, and in some instances being a politician requires building consensus, not rule by dictatorship. I think people who expect complete an utter honesty from their politicians in a country built on lies and misdirection without questioning historically how we got to this point are essentially two fries short of a Happy Meal, it’s ain’t realistic; it is a nice ideal, however.
We the People….didn’t include slaves or women, it meant WE the White Males in Power.
She isn’t a racist, never has been. There have been policies that were enacted or supported by her and her husband that may not have been the best, especially for black folk, but I personally think it wasn’t intentionally racist, but just…wrong.
She has an ego big enough to know she can do it. She is the Jedi Warrior. She is the Karate Kid. She has been training for this moment from day one. It’s her. She owns it and she deserves it.
She isn’t a quitter, she is tough as nails, tougher than Bill, even. She took all of Bill’s stuff, battled Obama (and lost) worked for the man and has emerged seasoned. She is the bottle of champagne you open when you don’t feel you need champagne to celebrate, but because you want it.
Forget she is a woman. She is a leader who just so happens to be a woman, and the fact that she IS a woman makes me feel that she will think twice about sending troops into harm’s way, or pushing the button. She is a Mom, a Grandmother, inside she doesn’t want to take anyone’s life. If she does? It’s because she is Mama Bear and if she chooses either alternative, it will be because of her desire, her need and mandate to protect “us.” (Great Secret Service Code Name by the way: Mama Bear.)
She is Teflon, nothing sticks (yeah I said it) drag her in front of Congressional committees, out her in front of dictators, call her “nasty” and you will get that wry Clinton smile that essentially says, “wait for it….”
She is smart and competent and I think those of us who like her is all she needs. She is smart, she understands the facts, she understands the world. I want my leader of the free world to be brilliant, and clearly, she is.
So I am with her because I am a college-educated African-American male who understands the world is complex, and testosterone and beating one’s chest isn’t the way you solve the world’s problems. Just being in a relationship requires diplomacy (if you’re smart). Bottom line, D, you can’t compete against the vagina and win. You aren’t The ONE. She is in all her nasty brilliant competence. And we know smart, women who stand up to you is like kryptonite, but you have never been Superman.
