There’s a large block of low-information voters who will vote for Hillary this election for the sole reason that she’s a woman.
Apparently, to the left, the bar is set so low that the only qualification you need to be a “pro-women” candidate is that you’re a woman (and not a Republican).
Hillary is plagued by scandals – and many of them don’t bode well for her image as the “women’s” candidate.
Here are just five reasons why she’s the anti-woman candidate.
1. There’s a Big Wage Gap At Her Campaign
While Hillary Clinton bemoans the wage gap between men and women (an alleged 78 cents on the dollar), her staffers face a wage gap of their own.
As the Washington Free Beacon reported:
In May, women on her staff earned 88 cents for each dollar that was earned by men. In June, the campaign staff grew by 55 employees and women fared even worse, earning just 87 cents for each dollar earned by men.
When projected out to reflect annual salary figures, it was calculated that the median annual salary for a woman would be about $7,000 less than the median male salary.
2. She Defended Rapists As a Lawyer … and Laughed About It
The defense isn’t the bad part – it’s a lawyer’s job to defend the despicable. But read what she did to the victim.
“Hillary Clinton took me through Hell,” the victim said. The Daily Beast agreed to withhold her name out of concern for her privacy as a victim of sexual assault.
The victim said if she saw Clinton today, she would call her out for what she sees as the hypocrisy of Clinton’s current campaign to fight for women’s rights compared to her actions regarding this rape case so long ago.
“I would say [to Clinton], ‘You took a case of mine in ’75, you lied on me… I realize the truth now, the heart of what you’ve done to me. And you are supposed to be for women? You call that [being] for women, what you done to me? And I hear you on tape laughing.
The victim’s allegation that Clinton smeared her following her rape is based on a May 1975 court affidavit written by Clinton on behalf of Thomas Alfred Taylor, one of the two alleged attackers, whom Clinton agreed to defend after being asked by the prosecutor. Taylor had specifically requested a female attorney.
Oh – and she laughed about it, as video obtained by the Washington Free Beacon shows:
3. She Silenced Those Accusing Her Husband
Bill’s actions don’t reflect anything about Hillary Clinton. It’s not like she’s responsible for his actions. But for a candidate who will say that every rape victim deserves to be believed, she certainly hasn’t practiced what she preaches.
As the Washington Examiner noted:
If we take a ride back 20 years to the 1990s, Hillary was involved in the most orchestrated and vicious victim-blaming campaigns against women in recent history. She spent years defending husband Bill from accusations that he raped, sexually assaulted or groped women. And even after he admitted publicly that he cheated on her, she stood by him.
4. She’s Taken Money From Regimes That Treat Women Horribly
You can learn a lot about a candidate from who they take money from – and for a pro-woman candidate, her donors have been anything but.
To quote from MintPress News:
Donors from Saudi Arabia gave millions to the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit operated by Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, despite Saudi Arabia’s appalling record on women’s rights. In return for their financial support, Hillary Clinton helped Saudi Arabia obtain billions in military equipment from the U.S.
In Saudi Arabia, women are not allowed to hold political office or drive cars, and four princesses from the royal family were imprisoned and tortured for speaking out in favor of equality. Saudi forces have also been instrumental in suppressing the pro-democracy movement in Bahrain, where female leaders of the movement like Maryam al-Khawaja face imprisonment or exile.
Those are just the donations. Even her policies have hurt women internationally:
As secretary of state, Clinton supported U.S. military intervention throughout Africa and the Middle East, from aiding the Israeli oppression of Palestinian civilians to supporting the violent destabilization of Libya. According to a 2014 report from Whatever It Takes, a blog that tracks the candidate’s human rights record, the latter hurt women’s rights not just in Libya but throughout the region:
“Clinton planned and pushed for the illegal Obama war to support Al Qaeda factions against Libya, which is now a failed state ruled by jihadist militias who kill unarmed protesters. The support, including weapons, given to Al Qaeda by the USA spilled over into empowering other Al Qaeda linked terrorist groups, including Boko Haram, which … kidnapped hundreds of young women.”
5. She’s Pro Choice
Yeah yeah I know, “reproductive rights” and all that. It doesn’t change the fact that the majority of those killed by abortion are female.
Could anything be any more anti-woman?
