Liberals to Celebrate International Women’s Day Knowing There Will Be No Female President in 2020
International Women’s Day is coming up on Sunday, Mar. 8, and liberals are bemoaning the fact that there will be no female U.S. President in 2020.
With Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) bowing out of the race over the past week, that leaves Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) as the last woman in the presidential race. With Gabbard receiving roughly 1 percent of support from Democrats, this means that – barring some kind of miracle – there will be no woman in the White House at the end of this year’s election cycle.
Empowered liberal women, of course, are blaming sexism on the fact that their crop of female candidates could not cut it.
“Every time I get introduced as the most powerful woman, I almost cry, because I wish that were not true,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said after Warren dropped out of the presidential race.
“I so wish that we had a woman president of the United States, and we came so close to doing that,” said Pelosi during her weekly news conference. “I do think there’s a certain element of misogyny.”
“I think the electorate has not come to the same level of enlightenment that many other countries around the world have: that a woman as president can be in the best interests of our country,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told Politico.
Feminist activists are even more enraged that America has not chosen a woman to go to the White House, regardless of their respective qualifications.
“What privilege is, is that white men get to be the default, they get to be the regular, they get to be the fallback position. And then everybody else … is the other, is the exception, is the risk,” said Aimee Allison, co-founder of She the People, a group that agitates for racial and gender quotas in politics.
Another feminist activist simply blamed the American people for being too evil and sexist for the Democrats to be able to put up a female contender.
“The Democratic electorate has never stopped second-guessing ourselves about how we could have averted the disastrous Donald Trump presidency,” said Heather McGee, a distinguished senior fellow at Demos Action who endorsed Warren for President.
“So, yes, misogyny has played a role in 2020 — not because Democratic voters were too misogynistic to vote for a woman, but because we are too aware that the rest of the country appears to be fine with misogyny, from Trump to Brett Kavanaugh to bans on abortion,” she added.
Another bitter feminist just made up complete nonsense to justify her grief and angst that the female contenders could not cut the mustard.
“If Bernie Sanders were a woman, ‘she,’ as an angry, rumpled candidate, never would have made it beyond Mayor Sanders, and even that would have been a stretch. Likewise, if Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren or Amy Klobuchar were men, I have no doubt that one of them would be our nominee against Donald Trump,” said Democratic media consultant Jennifer Burton.
These “empowered” woman seem unwilling to admit that the three major candidates remaining – former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and President Donald Trump – may have just outcompeted their female counterparts based on merit.
