Camille Paglia on Hillary Clinton and Snowflake Feminism

TLDR: They’re both horrible disasters. First, on Hillary:

‘It’s an outrage how she’s played the gender card. She is a woman without accomplishment. “I sponsored or co-sponsored 400 bills.” Oh really? These were bills to rename bridges and so forth. And the things she has accomplished have been like the destabilisation of North Africa, causing refugees to flood into Italy… The woman is a disaster!’

Quite so. Only the most naive, the most in denial, the most cynical can deny at this point that Hillary is a crook. But even if her ethics, honesty, and transparency were above reproach, her policies have proven disastrous.  It was Clinton Era policies (i.e. threatening banks with lawsuits if they didn’t give mortgages to people with bad credit and then socializing the costs) that created the housing bubble and the subsequent economic crash. It was Clinton policies of indifference to a growing Al Qaeda threat that produced 9-11. It was Clinton policies as Secretary of State that turned in Libya and Syria into dumpster fires, unleashed a flood of “refugees” into Europe, increased hostility with Russia, and led to the rise of ISIS. Clinton voted for Obamacare, which is blowing up like a Samsung Note 7.  She also intends to flood the USA with illegal immigrants and unvetted migrants from Terrorstan and accelerate Obama policies of sending jobs overseas through over-regulation.

Disaster is mild; Hillary is a catastrophe.

Paglia is also not a fan of Third Wave Snowflake Feminism.

‘My philosophy of feminism,’ the New York-born 69-year-old explains, ‘I call street-smart Amazon feminism. I’m from an immigrant family. The way I was brought up was: the world is a dangerous place; you must learn to defend yourself. You can’t be a fool. You have to stay alert.’ Today, she suggests, middle-class girls are being reared in a precisely contrary fashion: cosseted, indulged and protected from every evil, they become helpless victims when confronted by adversity. ‘We are rocketing backwards here to the Victorian period with this belief that women are not capable of making decisions on their own. This is not feminism — which is to achieve independent thought and action. There will never be equality of the sexes if we think that women are so handicapped they can’t look after themselves.’

Exactly thus.

  2. Lacking a better name, I label it as “Daddy’s Little Princess” Feminism; whining spoiled, pampered, passive-aggressive self-victims dependent on Higher Authority for protection, justice and worst-of all — self-affirmation.

    And Mrs. William J. Clinton is a good example. How far would she have gotten on her own? A retired tax-attorney from some mid-sized law-firm in Chicago? I doubt she’d have been elected US Senator (NY) if she wasn’t his wife.

  3. Paglia’s what I refer to as an “equal opportunity” feminism. To her, the point of feminism is to work to change laws so that women have the same opportunities as men, and don’t have any legal barriers to achieving their goals. This is different from “representation” feminism, which works to ensure that women have an equal presence as men in society. Which, in recent months, has taken the form of many companies, including ones that receive tax dollars, instituting discriminatory hiring practices that benefit women and minorities in a twisted attempt to correct decades of discrimination against these groups.

  4. I doubt she’d have been elected US Senator (NY) if she wasn’t his wife.

    Don’t forget all of her Arkansas “accomplishments”. How did she get to be partner of the preeminent law firm in the state? Or let on the board of directors of what is now the world’s largest retailer? If you talk to her supporters, it’s because she’s this unique wunderkind. But most any political observer who isn’t awed by the charm and aura of the Clintons will objectively say that it was largely due to whom she was married.

  5. If Mrs. Clinton were a real feminist, she would have dumped Bill as soon as he humiliated her on the world stage with the “rape” of an intern in the oval orifice. Instead, like a good whore, she traded her dignity for the promise of a Senate seat and a run at the White House.

    If she were the wife of a high profile wealthy CEO who was caught “raping” an intern, feminists would have told her to dump the creep and take him for everything he has.
