Move over James Comey.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has a new culprit for its loss to Donald Trump: Self-loathing, sexist women.
During an appearance on MSNBC on Monday, former Clinton campaign communications director Jess McIntosh claimed it was women with “internalized misogyny” who couldn’t bring themselves to vote to elect the first woman president.
Oh, really? Women have this? Where did it originate? Why has it not shown up before? Are they just making this up?
When she was asked by Chris Hayes why Hillary didn’t do better with white women than Barack Obama did in 2012, McIntosh responded, “Internalized misogyny is a real thing and this is a thing we have to be talking about as we go through and see.”
Apparently it is not made up. But then again, do we believe anything that Feminists say? This all sounds very complicated. Once again, how is it created. Why did it manifest itself in all of these women at just this instant of time. Perhaps women are like the clones from Star Wars, where on the specified signal, all voted against the woman candidate.
“We as a society react poorly to women seeking positions of power. We are uncomfortable about that and we seek to justify that uncomfortable feeling because it can’t possibly be because we don’t want to see a woman in that position of power,” McIntosh said.
Even if this was true, would it really be misogyny?
“As we go through these numbers, as we figure out exactly what happened with turnout, it seems to be white college-educated women,” she continued.
This must really burn. All of the effort in brainwashing – down the drain. This is so telling. Even with all of these advantages, they could not close the deal.
“We have work to do talking to those women about what happened this year and why we would vote against our self-interest,” McIntosh said.
But is it in their self interest? Driving the car into the ditch is not really in the interest of any of the passengers, male or female. Perhaps part of the simple explanation was that Hillary was just a bad candidate.
So commenters, perhaps you can explain why it would be in women’s self interest to vote for Hillary. Free goodies? Is that it?
