In 2016, Will Sexism Become The New Racism?
"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."

Take Me To Post Comment Form

That's the question posed in a article dated December 3rd by Noel Sheppard. The article was triggered by the recent happenings involving a "liberal" cartoonist who was banned from the "progressive" web site Daily Kos for "publishing a comic strip with Barack Obama in it that was deemed to be racist." The cartoonist was Ted Rall, and this past Monday he was interviewed by Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg about the incident. In it, Rall "warned that if Hillary Clinton gets the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, “sexism will be the new racism."

Said Rall:

“They (the Daily Kos) have a section where anybody can post, and I started about I guess it was about two months ago, and from day one, everything I posted that was critical of the President I got this huge amount of hatred,” Rall said.

“They had this system where you can vote that you like or dislike something, and it gets hidden or censored if you don’t like it. Well, most of the people there are Democrats," he continued. "So anybody who criticizes Democrats or Obama is just banished. They’re like a Soviet un-person, you know, like in '1984.' They’re just gone."

"If you look at the vast majority of people who came down on me, these are white Democrats, white guy Democrats who are just using this as an excuse," Rall added. "Get ready, because in 2016, if Hillary is the nominee, it’s just going to be sexism will be the new racism...It’s what you use when you don’t have anything.""

The author of the article goes on to say:

"Indeed it is, but Rall's right.

"Just as anyone that criticized Obama the past six-plus years was accused of racism, in the coming years, anyone that criticizes Hillary if she runs will be depicted as sexist.

The so-called "Republican War on Women" will be dusted off again, and every utterance by an opponent or commentator that isn't flattering will be due to Clinton's lack of a Y-chromosome and not because of her views.

So we got that going for us."

For the article and a video of the Rall interview, see:

Hmmmmm....sexism as the new racism. If I were Hillary, I'd try to head this one off at the pass and take a page out of the playbook of Barack Obama. I'm sure she remembers how the President dealt with the contention that an African-American president would supposedly inflame the racial tensions in this country. You recall what happened - Mr. Obama assured us he would heal the racial divide, and that under his presidency this country would ascend to a level of racial harmony the likes of which none of us had ever before experienced.

Ah - then again - maybe Hillary should try something else.
