The Faux Feminism of Hillary Rodham Clinton

Book - 2016
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Hillary Clinton presents her campaign for the presidency and her long career in public life as a triumph of feminism. But an all-star lineup of American feminists here says, "It's not that simple." In a history of proposals and policies on welfare, Wall Street, crime and policing, immigration, international health, and war, Clinton has advanced ideas and laws that have actually hurt women-and restricted the powerful idea of feminism itself.
From leading feminist figures like Roxane Gay and Barbara Ehrenreich to a new generation of young women writers and thinkers, this book restores to feminism its revolutionary meaning and outlines how truly robust feminist policies could transform the United States and its relation to the world.

Writing in Spring, 2016, feminists denounce Hillary as a selfish, racist warmonger.
--- Hillary cares only about winning office. The plight of poor women means nothing to her.
The Clintons grew rich helping dictators and racist corporations oppress women. A for-profit university chain paid Bill Clinton over $16,000,000 to act as figurehead, and gave more money to the corrupt Clinton Foundation, p 84. The Clintons upheld Haitian sweat shops. Hillary's anti-prostitution measures punish women. Democrats offer women nothing but abortion, p 113.
--- Clinton policies re welfare, education, and crime are all racist. Blacks need more welfare,
not sermons, and should not be asked to work. Hillary's calls for teacher competency and
classroom discipline target Black teachers. Punishing drug dealers, wife-beaters, rapists, sex-traffickers and child-abusers is just a way to jail Blacks.
--- Hillary supported the ravagement of Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan,
Yemen and Gaza. She scoffed at Iraqi women who dreaded our looming 2003 attack. Countless thousands drowned at sea fleeing the chaos Hillary caused in Libya. She wants to wreck Syria completely; she and Obama spent $500,000,000 arming jihadists who joined al Qa'ida there. She supports Israel's oppression of Palestinians and its 2014 massacre of women and children in Gaza. Despite Obama's nuclear deal with Iran (made after Hillary left the State Dept), she went on threatening to wreck the country to please US Zionists. Hillary caused a coup in Honduras, replacing the democratic government with a cruel dictatorship, all for exploitation by US firms.
--- Under her policies, trillions that might have helped the poor have been wasted destroying Muslim countries. Hillary is "bent on global domination," p 81, with vassals everywhere subservient to her. If elected, she will use feminism as an excuse to start new wars, killing more women and children to "liberate" them.

[Update: Robert Kagan is about to throw a fundraiser for HRC - - be sure to read Nick Schou's book, Spooked, to get the lowdown on that sleazoid! Last person to throw her a fundraiser at Martha's Vineyard was the Lady de Rothschild - - nothing like being bankster-connected!]
If you really believe HRC to be a feminist, read this book!
If you really believe HRC supports minorities, read this book!
If you truly believe HRC supports workers and unions, read this book!
If you really believe HRC is about anything other then the murders of innocents, read this book!
Yes, Clinton does have one major talent - - channeling Henry Kissinger while he's still alive!
Great book, and a necessary read before casting any votes this election!
