I guess it’s better to blame the figurehead?
I guess intersectionality is coming to the Left. As if they could be any less relevant.
Typical dense SJW tactics to double down on something that doesn’t work.
Pandering to increasingly niche groups of people to be edgy, doesn’t win you elections.
Conservative political savant Karl Rove said this week on Fox News that focus groups conducted with working-class women showed that they didn’t care that Clinton would be the first woman president. And compared to Obama in 2008, Clinton won fewer votes from women, whether they were black, Latina or white.
Oh now you listen to Fox.
Mentioning race obscures the classism.
Her tone-deaf campaign didn’t even pretend to transcend such class divisions. Once she had secured the nomination, Clinton offered few ideas about how to make ordinary women’s lives better.
Guess which one is actionable?
The campaign endlessly touted endorsements from the ranks of the celebrity one-percenters, especially women. In the end, Clinton enjoyed a gender advantage only among the college-educated.Among white women without college degrees, Clinton lost to Trump by 28 points. It was almost as if waitresses in Ohio didn’t care that Anna Wintour was #WithHer.
The elite feminism Clinton represents is also a white feminism.
Wait, do you really expect every Democrat candidate after Obama to be black? And what about the Hispanics? The Muslims? I thought the Democrats sold that they were capable of sympathy?
She was more interested in trying to attract white suburban, Republican women. In the end, African American turnout was lower than in 2012.
You felt taken for granted? Welcome to the world of white people.
This election cycle, across the world, the left lost the working class whites.
Blaming the blacks for exerting agency, what a shocker. Why do they expect Democrat support? They aren’t the blue version of Uncle Toms.
Feminist writer Jill Filipovic went much further in her disgust for the masses, tweeting about Clinton, “Sorry, America, you didn’t deserve her.”
They still don’t mention the scandals.
As well, if white male solidarity with a misogynist and racist – or, for that matter, any special feelings about Trump – was a huge factor, he should have invigorated the base. Yet there was no surge in Republican voters –Trump got fewer votes than Romney in 2012.
My God it can read.
It was dumb of America to elect him.
See I may be condescending, but I insult individuals, not entire countries.
Why did Democrats lose again?
I bet they don’t know voting is correlated as a civic duty to high IQ populations who feel responsible.
Feminism now has an opportunity to move beyond the go-girlism of the Sheryl Sandberg set.
The nice PR stuff. What’s left? More Dear White People?
But we can’t do it with leaders who would rather hobnob with billionaires than fight for ordinary women. A feminism that revels in its identification with people like Clinton – forming groups with names like Pantsuit Nation – is not a feminism that values the lives of most women.
Turn on the people with power?
These are not smart women.
