Simply put it’s because he’s male.
Progressives came out in full force Thursday to denounce Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as the headlining speaker at a convention organized by the Women’s March.
Feminists and their organizations blasted the Women’s Convention, a three-day event aimed a female liberation, for having Sanders speak on the opening night of the convention. Some women took to Twitter to voice their frustrations, while others rallied behind a petition calling for the immediate removal of Sanders.
Bernie has three big items going against him. First he is a “man”, second he opposed
Nurse Ratchet Hillary Clinton of the Democrat nomination. third he’s an old man.
Now Bernie did write some essays back in the early seventies about “rape fantasies” but one thing Bernie is not is a serial sexual assaulter. Unlike former President Bill Clinton. Bill had the ultimate get out of jail free card, his personal protection of abortion rights endeared him so much to progressive leftist women that author Nina Burleigh has this to say back in 1998
In a 1998 essay for Mirabella, Burleigh described an occasion aboard Air Force One when she noticed President Bill Clinton apparently looking at her legs. The piece led to her being described as “the Ally McBeal of former White House reporters” by columnist Ellen Goodman. Approached by a Washington Post media reporter to discuss the Mirabella article, Burleigh stated, “I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.” Referring to the comment in a 2007 piece for The Huffington Post, Burleigh wrote, “I said it (back in 1998, but a good quote has eternal life) because I thought it was high time for someone to tweak the white, middle-aged beltway gang taking Clinton to task for sexual harassment. These men had neither the personal experience nor the credentials to know sexual harassment when they saw it, nor to give a good goddamn about it if they did. The insidious use of sexual harassment laws to bring down a president for his pro-female politics was the context in which I spoke.”
Reading this today in 2017 after all the Harvey Weinstein revelations it is clear or should be clear to everyone that the holy sacrament of progressive women is abortion without restriction. That certain women will willingly debase themselves to male power brokers and politicians who will use their power to protect that right. And if these same men use fear and intimidation to force themselves on the unwilling victims, and if these women speak out, well what do you expect from trailer park trash. And none other then Hillary herself will be twisting the knife. Not all women are equal in the eyes of progressives, and collateral damage has to be expected.
Sexual assault is bad only when conservatives and republicans practice it.
But lets get back to dear Uncle Bernie.
Bernie’s progressive resume should be beyond question, and they are. Apparently the only real fly in the ointment is that they have Bernie opening the convention. A women by the name of Amanda H. Ashcraft has launched a petition to have him removed as opening speaker.
Optics are extremely important. The Women’s Convention, in her goal of empowering and putting the voices of women on the front lines, should lead by example and have a woman open the convention. The individual who kicks off an event often becomes the “face” of the event. It is only right to have a woman’s face for the Women’s Conference. Having a man’s face only continues the invisible presence, work, and voices of women.
Bernie will likely be a gentleman and offer to speak during the convention. If only to preserve unity for the cause.
The keynote speaker will be non-other then dingbat Maxine Waters.
Perhaps they’ll all wear their “Pussy hats” again.
