PatriotNewsDaily.com » The Clinton Sexism Police Warm Up for Fall

The Democratic debate on Sunday gave us a very tiny sneak preview of what we can expect from the general election if Hillary Clinton gets the nomination. Whether Clinton goes up against Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, or a random nominee of the RNC s choosing, the media will gleefully pick apart every debate performance, every advertisement, and every candidate statement for signs of sexism. And as is evidenced by what they re saying about Bernie Sanders right now, it won t take much to trigger that accusation.

Unless you re eaten up with the cancer of feminism, you probably didn t notice Sanders do anything wrong at the debate. Well, scratch that. He said plenty of stuff that runs counter to common sense, facts, and traditional American ideals, but he didn t call Clinton a whore or suggest that she should spend a little less time on the campaign trail and a little more time in the kitchen.

But he did, at one point, shut down Clinton s interruptions by saying GASP Excuse me, I m talking. This exchange would have been fine if Sanders was facing another man for the nomination. It would have been fine if Clinton had done the exact same thing to Sanders.

But in a world where feminists believe that equality means that men must walk on eggshells when debating a woman, it was unacceptable. Now it s important to remember that many in the media especially liberal garbage sites like Salon and Slate are feeling the Bern, so we re not going to see them go after Sanders with the kind of venom they ll use against a Republican challenger. In fact, many commentators have been defending him.

But plenty of others have at least dabbled their toes into the wonderful world of nonsense. Washington Post columnist Janell Ross wrote: Why, at this late date and this many debates into the 2016 presidential election cycle, has Sanders made demonstrably little to no effort to alter the way he interacts with the woman he at least strongly suspected would be running against him from the day he declared his campaign? He has almost certainly had the same advice and information that every male candidate gets about the need to be constantly mindful about coming across like a chauvinist or a bully when on a debate stage facing a female competition.

Ross, to her mild credit, understands that it would be overboard to accuse Sanders of being sexist for such a tame incident, so she positions the controversy as some weakness in Sanders campaign strategy. But even with that distance, she manages to conclude that it could relate to a flaw in the Vermont senator s character. Does the inability or unwillingness to examine his body language, tone and actions for hints or indicators of sexism if not real but perceived by some women tell us all what we really need to know?

she asks. At Salon, Amanda Marcotte went a step further, telling her readers that the incident was not just a problem for Sanders but also with his supporters. The Sanders team didn t apologize for the candidate s condescending tone, she wrote, which reinforces already widespread suspicions that the candidate is gaining support from voters who don t want to support a woman but don t want to admit they are sexist.

There it is. That s the refrain we ll be hearing this fall, just as we ve heard it about Obama for the last seven years. If you don t like Clinton, you re probably just a sexist.

It will be irritating and amusing to see how far they will be willing to stretch the definition of sexism to make these claims in the general election.

'Scooby-Doo' van involved in high-speed police chase

Zoinks! In a further example of life imitating cartoons, a van painted to look like the vehicle from the Scooby-Doo series was recently involved in a high-speed police chase 1 in California that reached speeds of 100 miles per hour. This makes perfect sense.

If you re intending to be involved in criminal activity, a garishly-painted, attention-grabbing van that s instantly recognizable to everyone who owned a television in the last 50 years is a great choice. To be fair, since the Mystery Machine was the vehicle of crime-solvers Shaggy, Scoob, and company, perhaps the perpetrator was attempting to fool the police into thinking they were on the right side of the law. The driver was allegedly 51-year-old Sharon Kay Turman, who is wanted for alleged probation violations.

There s no word whether she is also the owner of a haunted amusement park or rundown mansion filled with secrets.

What we do know is that police have not yet caught up with the incredibly easy-to-find vehicle.

In other words, she got away with it, too. 2 ] References ^ involved in a high-speed police chase (news.sky.com) ^ Sky News (news.sky.com)
