Gloria Steinem Rips John McCain….

Steinem questions McCain’s POW cred
Feminist icon Gloria Steinem was over the top yesterday as she tried to rip McCain a new one in a tirade in support of Hillary Clinton.

Quote:
….the 73-year-old (Steinem) seemed to denigrate the importance of John McCain’s time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam…..she suggested that Barack Obama benefits—and Clinton suffers—because Americans view racism more seriously than sexism….Steinem raised McCain’s Vietnam imprisonment as she sought to highlight an alleged gender-based media bias against Clinton.

Steinem then continues with anti-military comments downplaying the importance of leaders who insisted on a strong national defense and knew how to use the armed forces:

Quote:
Steinem’s broader argument was that the media and the political world are too admiring of militarism in all its guises.
“I am so grateful that she [Clinton] hasn’t been trained to kill anybody. And she probably didn’t even play war games as a kid. It’s a great relief from Bush in his jump suit and from Kerry saluting.”
To the Observer, Steinem insisted that “from George Washington to Jack Kennedy and PT-109 we have behaved as if killing people is a qualification for ruling people.”

She concludes with comments about violence against women and the notion that Hillary should be first with Obama to follow after Clinton’s 8 years as President.

Quote:
But she also opined that “a majority of Americans want redemption for racism, for our terrible destructive racist past and so see a vote for Obama as redemptive.” Then, using a term for the mass killing of women, she added, “I don’t think as many want redemption for the gynocide.
Quote:
Steinem told me the Illinois senator was “an intelligent, well-intentioned person.” She added: “I would like very much to see him be president for eight years after Hillary has been president for eight years.”

    Gender bias, racism, sexism…whatever. As long as we continue to segregate our thought process based on emotional response to this end, we really never will see a true perspective. I guess judging a person by the content of his character sometimes gets pushed into the way background, and we lose sight of the real issues. Lighten up!

    Even Whoppie Goldberg said she loves Gloria but she was wrong on this one. Goldberg said some woman was captured in and people did not say the things about her dipshit alledges would for a female POW.

    Why does Clinton let this fool get anywhere near a microphone?
