The run-up to the 2020 presidential election sounds eerily familiar to 2016, as failed female Democrat hopefuls are making the same tired excuses.
When Hillary Clinton was overwhelmed in the 2016 electoral college, she blamed sexism, misogyny, and conservative married women voting the way their husbands demanded. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. Hillary, like the recent class of dropouts, was a severely flawed candidate. Her record while First Lady included attacking women who accused now-disgraced former President Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct and even rape — hardly a pathway to securing female voter support.
Clinton used an unsecured private server to conduct confidential State Department business and did not send military support as Americans died under siege in a terrorist attack in Benghazi. In the end, losing was everyone’s fault, but Hillary’s and everyday people are hearing echoes of her pathetic excuses.
“I so wish — every time I get introduced as the most powerful woman, I almost cry because I think, I wish that was not true. I do wish we had a woman President of the United States,” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said when asked about Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren ending her bid. “I do think there’s a certain element of misogyny that is there. And some of it isn’t really mean-spirited. It’s just isn’t their experience.”
Missing from Pelosi’s response were facts about Senator Warren that include claiming she was a Native American to secure a job at liberal Harvard University. Or that she became a national embarrassment after flunking a DNA test. Her policies involve tearing down financial institutions and re-implementing high taxes on large corporations that previously drove investment and jobs overseas. No, for a field of Democrats that cannot take personal responsibility, it’s time to play the blame game.
“If you say, ‘Yeah, there was sexism in this race,’ everyone says, ‘Whiner,’” Sen. Warren reportedly said. “And if you say, ‘No, there was no sexism,’ about a bazillion women think, ‘What planet do you live on?’”
If Senator Warren was as skilled at running a campaign or public policy as she is at implying sexism derailed her bid, she might very well be sitting in the Oval Office. But the wing of the Democrat party that puts gender over the will of voters has already rolled out its victim narrative. California Senator Kamala Harris recently echoed the sexism excuse used by losers and members of the fake news media.
“I will also say guys, I think we all know, this election cycle, in particular, has presented very legitimate questions about the challenges of women running for President of the United States,” Sen. Harris reportedly said. “It’s obvious to look at what’s happened. Look at what’s happened. There are no women currently in this race.”
Harris’ popularity tanked quickly after challenging Joe Biden on his pro-segregation record and his coziness with Ku Klux Klan members. The Democrat establishment appeared shaken after Harris took down the Obama-era number two in a national debate. This begs the question: why are Democrats ignoring Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s ongoing presidential campaign?
Gabbard, considered a political outsider, recently re-qualified for the national debate circuit. However, the party appears to be changing the rules to block her voice. Sexism? Misogyny? Or, do Democrats just want a puppet who will restore the corrupt Washington, D.C., swamp to the good old days?
Democrats may want to take a good long look at the rigged process of their own party before crying sexism and misogyny.
