There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.
– Madeleine Albright
Progressive feminists give us an insight into the twisted logic and rooted bigotry of feminism, their hypersensitivity to women-only issues, and a general loathing of men (unless these men are serial, sexual harassing, raping Democrats). The political and pop-culture feminists who are leading the feminist movement today would rather sacrifice a few of their progressive patsies on the alter of Roe v. Wade abortion on demand, than take a united stand against all sexual violence, harassment and rape.
Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Hillary
Not long ago, Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared at a speech at Northern Iowa University that sexual-assault survivors have a “right to be believed.” Yet Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and all the other women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, are not to be believed. Juanita Broaddrick apparently isn’t a survivor.
Hillary is accused of threatening Juanita Broaddrick. She famously called Gennifer Flowers “trailer trash,” and in a 1998 Today Show interview, Hillary said those accusing and investigating her husband “would have a lot to answer for,” and their backgrounds would be investigated. “It is commonly believed by Clinton victims that Hillary was behind the sicking of private investigators on the many women who accused her husband of rape, sexual assault or infidelity in the 1990s,” the Gateway Pundit reported.
It was Hillary who defended her alleged rapist/sexual assaulter husband and blamed the “bimbos” as being part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” – that is until Monica Lewinsky provided physical evidence in the unwashed blue dress.
All the women who came out against Bill Cosby are to be believed, but not the women accusing Bill Clinton. Their accusations were not legitimate to Hillary the “feminist icon.”
Despite the Clinton scandal, and following impeachment, feminists who claim to support women’s rights and oppose “rape culture” are blindly supporting Bill Clinton’s wife who publicly trashed, humiliated and maliciously targeted his sexual assault victims.
Elitism and Hypocrisy
Hypocrisy is a natural symptom of Elitism. Elitists believe they know how you should live your life according to their ideals and beliefs, not yours, and certainly not of the traditional or morally main stream. These feminist elitists believe that they have achieved some sort of higher, intellectual understanding through their collectivist cliques–mainly comprised of abortion on demand sycophants and gender justice, four-eyed, gender-bender crusaders. Hillary is their poster child. Lena Dunham is their muse.
Feminism for them is about limitless self-interest, rather than equality, fairness and justice. They do not want equality; they want gender supremacy. And they’ll get it any way they can: Manipulation and deceit for starters–like the so-called Rape Culture that has become an “epidemic” on colleges across the country.
Feminism has a great deal of interest in rape as a useful political tool for the left, to represent everything progressive’s loathe; femininity and motherhood, the nuclear family, using the earth’s natural resources, religion, college fraternities, the military, conservative blacks, and conservative women. Feminists however, do not really see rape as a crime, or real rape victims as people who have been exploited.
Why have American feminists been silent about the hundreds of Cologne, Germany rapes and assaults on New Years Eve by a mob of Muslim men?
According to Daniel Greenfield of FrontpageMag, “feminists insist that all the coverage of the Muslim rape mob attackers (a coverage that took place despite the best efforts of their left-wing colleagues to bury the politically incorrect story before anyone had even heard about it) is distracting attention from domestic sex crimes.”
Underneath feminism is the rotten leftist creed that all evils originate with the West, Greenfield said. “It is as impossible for a mainstream feminist in good standing with the political sisterhood to acknowledge what truly happened in Cologne and commiserate with the victims as it was for a Communist to admit that there was no food because a centralized bureaucracy of senile Socialist civil servants is not the best way to run an economy. They cannot even truly admit the crime until they have redirected the blame to that old standby boogeyman on which all Muslim atrocities since the Gates of Vienna have been blamed; failure to integrate due to European intolerance.”
This helps explain why progressive feminists still support Hillary Clinton for President and are loathe to speak out about former President Bill Clinton’s sexual predatory history.
What about the “Take back the night” demonstrations? Where are those feminists? The Cologne rapes happened at night. What about Lara Logan, reporter for CBS who was sexually assaulted by a mob of Egyptian Muslim men, and in her words, “raped by their hands in the front and back.” Where was the main stream media and the feminists? Even the LA weekly asked:
Only two weeks later, Hillary proclaimed, “This is what democracy looks like.”
Progressive feminism is simply not about feminism or even about women; it’s overt leftism and leftist politics.
Bogus Campus Rape
Many of today’s young people have been brought up to have very libertine attitudes on sex – free love, free sex, whenever, wherever, with whoever. It’s known as the Hook-up culture and glamorized in Amy Shumer’s latest comedic attempt, aptly called “Trainwreck.” This “monogamy isn’t realistic” attitude comes from the left, and this laissez-faire, hook-up culture has led to big problems on college campuses.
In California, the leftist legislature has redefined consensual sexual relations as “rape” if it occurs on a college campus — another first-in-the-nation idiotic policy.
This is how it works:
Woman has sex while drunk and is called a rape victim… and the man is the rapist.
The California Legislature and Gov. Jerry Brown embraced the feminist notion that women claiming rape should always be believed, and more importantly, never questioned.
Concurrently, all presumption of innocence of young males, and “innocent until proven guilty,” has been casually, and unconstitutionally, tossed aside.
Each campus is now required to adopt Legislature-approved “victim-centered sexual assault response policies and protocols that follow best p
ractices and professional standards.” The Democrats who authored Senate Bill 967, which will require California colleges and universities to deal with campus sexual violence by requiring each school to adopt Legislature-approved “victim-centered sexual assault response policies and protocols that follow best practices and professional standards,” claim “One in five women on college campuses have been sexually assaulted.”
This dubious figure has become an article of faith and rallying cry among those pushing government intervention into colleges’ handling of sexual assault claims.
What do we want? Due Process! When do we want it? NEVER!
The bill grossly violates the due process rights of male college students accused of rape. But the Legislature passed it anyway.
The bill did not address the hook-up culture; the authors merely declared sex a contractual event, and redefined consensual sexual relations as “rape” if it occurs on a college campus. Classifying most consensual sex as rape does nothing to help actual rape victims – it in fact, dilutes real rape cases.
And where are the campus-crusading feminists on the rapes plaguing Europe?
Job Inequality or Life Inequality?
While feminists in the United States whine about job inequality, they remain silent about the brutality waged upon women by Islam.
“Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300 percent and rapes by 1,472 percent. Sweden is now number two on the list of rape countries, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa.”
In Nigeria and Iraq, Muslim armies are selling women as slaves. ISIS holds Yazidi women as sex slaves, then sell them for $25, according to Robert Spencer.
“ISIS was more direct about it and beheaded a woman who resisted one of its fighters,” wrote Greenfield.
Iran hanged a 26-year-old woman for refusing to be raped.
When 276 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram and sold into the sex slave trade, the feminists “did their part” and created a hash tag campaign #BringBackOurGirlsNow. These Islamic terrorists may have missed their twitter feed that one week for the girls remain missing.
Yet, “The horrors aren’t confined to the Middle East. A sex grooming scandal in the UK involved the rape of thousands of girls. The rapists were Muslim men so instead of talking about it, the UK’s feminists created and sold $75 shirts reading, ‘This is what a feminist looks like.’ The t-shirts were actually being made by Third World women who live sixteen to a room,” said Greenfield.
What does feminist icon Hillary have to say about that?
Maybe we should ask Madeleine or Lena.
