It is too bad for the Clintons that the Internet can travel back nearly 20 years!
Feminist icons spent the weekend shaming women into voting for Hillary Clinton. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, even smeared supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders as sexist trolls.
But video taken 20 years ago show that Vermont’s socialist representative was made an“honorary woman” by feminist luminary Gloria Steinem herself. (Jump ahead to 15:44)
[I]n 1996 the famous feminist traveled to Burlington, VT to endorse him (OVER his female opponent) in what was a tough re-election fight against Republican Susan Sweetser.
Before Steinem, a former state senator told the audience that “a feminist is a person who challenges the power structure of our country” and “Bernie Sanders is that kind of feminist.” When it was Steinem’s turn, she announced: “I’m only here today to make Bernie Sanders an honorary woman.“
So if you are voting in the New Hampshire primary, no vote-shame is necessary. In fact, vote for Sanders twice…after you flip a coin. Then go find some dead relatives to vote Sanders, too!
In all seriousness, the Democratic primary has been more contentious than expected as Sanders has garnered more support than one would normally expect from a 70-something socialist.
In essence, the liberal media’s lack of detailed and truthful coverage of President Obama’s domestic and foreign policy failures has made the Democrats more inclined to drink their socialism straight-up…leaving Hillary Clinton high and dry.
My colleague Aleister asserts that New Hampshire will be the high-water mark for Sanders. As a Democrat, I will hold off on that speculation for a bit longer, though I understand his logic. I think the number to watch will be how well Sanders performs with minorities that formed such a significant portion of Obama’s coalition.
