Hillary Clinton just secured the Democratic nomination, making her the first female presidential nominee for a major party, and once and for all proving that a rich, powerful, well connected, liberal woman married to a former president, who has been groomed by a team of political professionals for the past 25 years, can achieve great things.
The media has predictably gone to great lengths to explain why this is one of the happiest and most important moments in American history. It’s “historic,” we’re told. Hillary has shattered the glass ceiling. She’s done the impossible. She’s a champion for women everywhere. She’s “changed the game for girls.” She’s a hero. She’s a goddess. She literally radiates light.
I must admit that there is something historic about Hillary’s nomination. More than one thing, in fact.
First, I believe this makes her the first person to ever be nominated for president while currently under an active FBI investigation. Second, this marks only the third time a person named Clinton has been nominated by the Democrats since 1992. Third, she’s most likely the first nominee to wear 13,000 dollar Armani coats while giving lectures on income inequality. Fourth, I’m guessing she’s the first major party nominee to have spent the last several decades intimidating and silencing her spouse’s alleged rape and abuse victims. Fifth, she is, as far as I know, the first nominee to have run a foundation that accepted millions of dollars in donations from corrupt foreign governments while she was Secretary of State. The list goes on and on. History has truly been made.
But she’s also, as you may have heard, the first nominee to possess a uterus. It’s this point that’s supposed to cause us to swell up with pride, even though, according to liberals, her possessing a uterus has nothing to do with her being a woman. In fact, her being a woman has nothing to do with her being a woman. Liberals want us to view the nomination of a woman as some landmark occasion, but at the same time they want us to view womanhood itself as entirely subjective and malleable. Once again, feminism and “transgenderism” crash violently into one another. Liberals can’t decide which contradictory narrative should win, so they just go with whichever serves their purpose in the moment. Today womanhood is a unique and splendid thing, defined by both the soul and the body. Tomorrow perhaps it will go back to being nothing more than a state of mind.
But for now, we’re meant to cheer the triumph of Hillary Clinton because she is a woman, and today at least, that means something. I’m informed by the media that it especially means something for the daughters of America, who should feel inspired and uplifted by Hillary’s accomplishment. Social media has been filled with proclamations from parents who are very excited about the “message” this sends to our girls.
As the father of a young daughter, I’ve been thinking about that “message” quite a bit myself. And call me sexist, but I don’t look at my little girl and think, “I hope you grow up to be just like Hillary Clinton.” I shudder at the thought that any parent would wish such a fate upon their precious child. If anything, I see Hillary Clinton as a vivid illustration of the exact sort of person I don’t want my daughter to become. It’s not that I don’t want her to be successful — I just don’t want her to achieve success the way Hillary achieved it, nor do I want her to define success the way Hillary, and much of the rest of the culture, defines it.
So what, specifically, might a young girl learn from Hillary Clinton? If your daughter wished to follow in Hillary’s footsteps, what sort of person would she become? What would she have to do in pursuit of her goals?
Here’s the list, as far as I can tell:
1. Lie and deceive.
If your daughter’s taking her cues from Hillary Clinton, the first thing she’s learned is that you have to lie to get ahead in life. You have to lie all the time, constantly, about everything. Hillary — the great inspirational woman — is such a liar that “liar” is the first word that comes to the mind of most people when the name “Hillary” is mentioned. Polls have shown that a large majority of Americans do not believe her to be honest or trustworthy, which apparently is the kind of reputation some parents wish upon their daughters.
Hillary lies habitually about all things, big and small. She lies over the important matters and the trivial. She lies when she wants to cover up her illegality and wrongdoing, like when she lied about her emails or about the Benghazi terrorist attack that killed four Americans. And she lies when there doesn’t appear to be any coherent reason at all, like when she claimed that she took sniper fire in Bosnia, or that she was “dead broke” after she left the White House, or that “all of her grandparents” were immigrants.
Hillary’s entire career in government has been one long, twisted, traitorous lie. She has treated every position only as a means to climb to the next one, and to enrich herself and her cronies along the way. Hillary used her power as Secretary of State to do favors in exchange for payment, at one point helping a Swiss bank get out of a bind with the IRS in exchange for 1.5 million dollars to Bill Clinton in the form of speaking fees. I don’t know if I’d call that a simple lie, so much as a crime, but it’s certainly deceitful either way. Even more interesting, 20 foreign governments made large donations to the Clinton Foundation after Hillary approved weapons shipments to their countries. Hillary’s whole career is filled with fascinating little morsels like these.
I’d say that Hillary has turned this kind of deceitfulness and dishonesty into an art form, but that would give the false impression that she’s a talented liar. Indeed, the saddest thing is that she lies with such regularity and such confidence, yet she’s still so fantastically bad at it, which is why all of her lies are recognized as lies almost immediately. Hillary is a con artist in the same league as the guy who gives pyramid scheme seminars in the conference hall of your local Comfort Inn. The only difference is that she’s married to a former president, so her lies have gotten her to more lofty heights.
If your daughter plans to follow the Hillary model, she should realize that her lies might only take her as far as the Comfort Inn, not necessarily the White House.
Hillary the Hag all about Big Goverment,fewer freedoms and the NWO SHE WOULD BE FAR WORST THEN OBAMA THE FINK EVER COULD BE Just wait for the UN blue helmets confiscating your guns or home
I had a few days up at my property, got to catch up on one of my favorite radio programs, I was not happy to hear the predictions which were pretty accurate in October. Trump wins the nomination but is to lose the election, Bernies time line is steady but something huge is coming for Hillary.
I hope its an indictment, but not holding my breath.
I dont feel this is a great thing for women, maybe those that “identify” as women feel differently.
