Anti-Hillary Misogyny At Ohio RNC

Posted by Michelle Moquin on July 19th, 2016

Bookmark and Share

Good morning!

The blog that I posted on Sunday, dealt with women supporting a child abuser by accepting roles in the pedophile’s films. In my opinion, and many may not agree with me, this is showing women not supporting women. Like Irene said, “Shame on you sisters.”

Akilina: Agreed. The question was posed about Allen. So I stand by my previous sentiments with regards to women supporting Allen by starring in his films.

Continuing in that vein of women not supporting women, have you seen the disgusting Anti-Hillary republican convention buttons? Here’s a sample – How’s this for a button?

$_35

Here you’ll witness women supporting a party that condones calling a woman a Bitch. (And I don’t mean in a good way.) If a woman gets on a man’s bad side, well then, she’s a Bitch, right? That’s basically what these republican men are saying, and stupid, dumb as a box of rocks white women, are following lockstep, by proudly wearing these buttons too.

This is how a woman who has been the First Lady, a U.S. Senator, a Secretary of State, is being treated by Trump and his supporters. Mean-spirited at best, and insanely disgusting at worst.

The sickness doesn’t stop at the Bitch button. Here’s the write from Variety:

Anti-Hillary Misogyny at GOP Convention Reflects Us-Vs.-Them Culture (Commentary)

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 7.26.00 PM

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The first thing I saw as I pulled off the thruway here to begin covering the Republican National Convention was a small plane towing a banner that proclaimed “Hillary for Prison 2016.”

I’ve seen those signs and that sentiment about Hillary Clinton’s qualifications to serve as president increase in volume and ferocity during the past few months. It came as no surprise that criticism of Clinton’s legacy as Secretary of State would be prominent during the GOP’s four-day gathering to formally anoint Donald Trump as the party’s contender for the White House.

But there were other anti-Hillary sentiments on display on the streets of Cleveland that stopped me in my tracks.

Even for the blood sport that is national politics, some of the items for sale or on display on the streets of downtown Cleveland’s stylish Playhouse Square district were shockingly misogynistic. To be clear, these are not RNC-sanctioned souvenirs but rather items whipped by opportunistic vendors. (Nor were any such items on the shelves at the RNC’s “Freedom Marketplace” bazaar set up next to the Quicken Loans Arena.)

There’s nothing wrong with grassroots capitalism. Adam Smith’s invisible hand guided a handful of entrepreneurs to believe that there was a market for political buttons featuring an unflattering picture of Clinton with the slogan “Life’s a bitch. Don’t vote for one.” Or even worse: “KFC Hillary Special: 2 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts … Left Wing.”

Another man donned a rubber Hillary face mask and parked himself on the narrow street leading to the Quicken Loans Arena in front of a “Trump vs. Tramp” sandwich board sign. He handed out a flier that railed, in single-space type on both sides of the page, on all manner of perceived Clinton sins, including the death toll in what he termed “Hillary’s Arab Spring” and her “EXTREMELY CARELESS AND GROSSLY NEGLIGENT” use of private email during her tenure at the State Department.

These attacks on Clinton veer well beyond political differences and policy fights. These are below-the-belt personal attacks on her physical appearance and her character outside the public arena. These are vile barbs hurled at her because she is a woman.

For sure, they reflect an anger that is fueled by partisan disagreements, no doubt, but escalating to a whole new level of nasty that a male candidate would never face. It’s hard to imagine someone making a button ridiculing the size of Donald Trump’s pectoral muscles. He’s faced a lot of teasing about his hair but that’s still a far cry from the “KFC Hillary Special.”

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 7.37.16 PM

The anti-Hillary venom reflects the broader “us vs. them” fears roiling the country in this most divisive election cycle. The extreme examples of this have become frighteningly all too frequent, from police shootings of unarmed African-American men to sniper attacks on police officers.

Much of the focus of cultural commentators has been on the tensions among ethnic and racial groups in an increasingly multicultural America. Some of the unease has been exploited by the rhetoric of the Trump campaign. Trump himself has reveled in level of political discourse during the campaign with his unfiltered shoot-from-the-lip — one that extended into his (now settled) feud with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and his commentary on his own penis size during a primary debate.

But the jaw-dropping low blows making the rounds in Cleveland would probably even make Trump cringe. They are a sobering reminder of just how far women in politics still have to come just to face a level playing field for criticism on the issues rather than her bra size.

That this kind of sophomoric attitude would surface in 2016, as Clinton achieves an elusive milestone in the history of women in this great nation, is a heartbreaking commentary on our culture and our times.

*****

Readers: First of all, I don’t think Trump would cringe at any of this. If he did, why doesn’t he say something and put a stop to it?

Secondly, this is my feelings…if you get on the wrong side of your man, you have accepted that you too are a Bitch because you’re wearing the Bitch button proudly. Do you get that?

That’s how dumb some white women are. Did I say that already? I believe it’s worth repeating.

It’s one thing to not be voting for Hillary because you’re supporting Trump (Ok, so the logic escapes me there), but it is also another thing to accept that you too are a Bitch if you get on the bad side of men. YOU are sending a message to the world that you are accepting the demeaning role that is presented in the form of a button that you are wearing. I ask again, “Do you get that?”

How could any self-respecting woman accept a party that would label a woman a Bitch, not to mention pinning a Bitch button onto her chest, knowing that she is labeling herself as one should she get on the wrong side of any man? Stupidly, many are.

According to this logic, that means Trump was correct when he called Megyn Kelly a Bitch because she evidently got on the bad side of him, and FOX fans had a field day, when they called her a Bitch over 423 times in the media.

We women have enough to deal with when it comes to sexism and misogyny, we don’t need our sisters to add fuel to the flame. When will women woman-up to men?

I agree with the writer. Here we have history…a first for women. And men are trying to do whatever they can to stay in control and prevent women from rising. It’s just heartbreaking to see how disrespectful people are treating Hillary and womankind.

It’s time, and no one is going to stop us.

  1. Pets in Beds Says:

    Many a cat lover lets their feline friend sleep on their bed.
    But one woman got a rather unexpected – not to mention disgusting – added extra after several nights of snuggling up.
    Michelle Barrow is mother to Cricket and Donut, who, while cute, shed a torrrent of hair all over the bed.
    And while unsightly, she never dreamt what would happen next.
    Some time later, during a routine appointment with her gynaecologist, she mentioned the ‘dull ache’ she’d felt in her abdomen for the last month.
    The cause? A two-inch ball of cat hair inside her vagina, apparently.
    How? The theory is that cat hairs in the bed became attached to her partner’s penis – neither of the couple sleep in underwear – and these had been transferred inside Miss Barrow during sex.
    And rather than work their way out, they simply became entangled in her IUD contraceptive coil.
    Over time, more and more debris collected, creating a furball inside her.

    Hope you weren’t having lunch.

    Hillary and Donald were on a boat, that sank. Who was saved?









    Ammerica!

  4. Donna Says:

    Glen#3, that’s the kind of sick shit white boys use to imply that both Hilary and trump are equally bad. Trump represents a whole new set of sick racist, stupid shit. The J must stand for joke, or jerk.

  5. Holiday Says:

    What is happening in the republican party is what must have happened in Germany when Hitler was beginning to form his Nazi party.

    Unfortunately the OTWs at that time had no way to resist. Two Saints Micah Xavier Johnson, and Gavin Eugene Long show that this is not true today in America.

    OTWs are prepared to deal with american nazis with violence if necessary.

  6. Helena 1 Says:

    The speech writer that was hired to write Trump’s wife’s speech shows a speech that had NONE of the plagiarisms the were in Ivana Trump’s speech. It seems that she added those plagiarized items.

    Notice how all the white controlled media worked so hard to claim that neither trump or his wife was to blame for her blatant plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech.

    Once again the white media will bend over backwards to exonerate white wrong doers. That includes the entire staff of MSNBC. Yet, the draft summited by Matthew Sculley clearly shows that he did not plagiaries Michelle Obama. It was done by trump and his wife.

    Whites CYAing white asses. Yeah, all white media is biased when it comes to holding whites accountable for the shit they do to blacks.

  7. Josie Says:

    Matt Scully’s speech was not the one Ivana Trump used. She plagiarized the speech on her own. No about of white media excuses to exonerate her will make that not true.

  8. Tom Says:

    Glen #3: Hillary said I hate to be on this small boat with your lazy republican ass Donald and sinking. But I will bail water out so we don’t sink so fast. Donald said “I do not labor”, so Hillary you are on your own. Donald then, thinking he could walk on water stepped out of the boat and drowned. Hillary was saved by some whales she was working on protecting.

    Moral: Don’t get on a boat with someone who will only bail when someone wants to see his tax returns.

  9. Anonymous Says:

    Trump and the republicans can say what want, I say, Bullshit! Michelle Obama wrote it.

    I find it funny that the right constantly talks about how they have values like, trustworthiness, honesty, and that they are the moral center.

    Then something like this happens and they say that the left wing media is just trying to make something out of nothing. REALLY?

    Character is all the sudden not important in a presidential candidates family? This shows a typical republican lack of character. To not just come out and say that you used Michelle’s speech as a template shows a willingness to deny any wrong doing.

    Does this remind you of cops who say don’t believe the video you are seeing, we have an explanation that is really true.

    That is not what this candidate decided to do though. They immediately started blaming Hillary, and the media.

    I would have respected the trumps more if they would have had the fortitude and character to say “yeah ok, we used Michelle’s speech as a template. Melania is not comfortable with speeches like this and we needed to give her an idea of what we are looking for.”

    That would have been respectable. That would have shown some character. I guess I just have too high of standards. I expect my presidential candidates to be respectable and show some character.

    Trump lost a chance to show the world that he could be something other than a bully and a coward. It’s too bad because he could have turned this into a win by acting presidential.

  10. Boyd Says:

    OMG, Melania must be clairvoyant to write the exact same phrases as the current First Lady wrote eight years ago. So how much of that speech did she write compared to what her speech-writer lifted from Michelle’s speech?

    According to the news, Matt Scully did not plagiarize Michelle Obama. That part was added by the trumps.

  11. Ruth/AF Says:

    White folk just love it when their house niggers perform as expected. I chuckled when North Carolina’s house nigger cast the state’s votes for trump. Not for her but for the happy smiling faces of the whites in the background.

    Let’s hope she makes it home without being stopped by a racist thug with badge who wasn’t watching her pull her Uncle Tom act on TV.

  12. Jack Says:

    t’s been 125 days since President Obama fulfilled his constitutional duty and nominated Judge Merrick Garland to fill the Supreme Court vacancy. Today, the Senate has set a record: No other Supreme Court nominee in U.S. history who hasn’t been withdrawn has gone longer without a vote.

    That’s right — since 1789, it has never taken this long for the Senate to do its job. And Congress just left town for a seven-week recess, delaying the process even further.

    In fact, since 1975, the average confirmation time has been just 67 days, even in an election year. Supreme Court nominees have received votes when opposing political parties have controlled the Senate and the White House.

    There’s no excuse — but Senate leaders today continue to put partisan politics over their most basic job requirements, threatening to cripple one of our democracy’s most critical institutions in the process.

    This level of obstruction is unprecedented — and is already having far-reaching, harmful consequences. Senate leaders are disrupting the balance of powers by handicapping the judiciary. Just in the last few months, because it’s missing a ninth justice, the Supreme Court has failed to reach decisions on important cases and to address major issues our country is facing.

    A majority of Americans are in support of a fair hearing for Judge Garland. But if we want to see any action from Congress, it’s up to us to keep speaking out and to keep the pressure up. They need to do their jobs and not allow the judicial confirmation process to become an endless cycle of political brinkmanship.

  13. Alycedale Says:

    Just so you know Saint Gavin Eugene Long was a brilliant man.
    ————————-
    After leaving the military, he received an associate’s degree in General Studies at Central Texas College and studied for three semesters at Clark Atlanta University, according to his online postings.

    Long dropped out after having a “spiritual revelation,” gave away “all of his material possessions” and traveled to Africa, he wrote. The website says he crisscrossed Rwanda, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Egypt, Ghana and Burkina Faso, and wrote three books, including a two-part series called a “A (W)holistic Guide for the Total Transformation of Melanated People.

    http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-baton-rouge-shooter-20160717-snap-story.html
    ====================
    One part of this story by the LA times is so whiteboyish. Take this part for example – “Throughout his postings, Long described violence as the solution to what he saw as oppression of black Americans. He railed against the July 5 police shooting of 37-year-old Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge.”

    I mean the “what he saw as oppression of black Americans.” We’ll white fellow what do you see it as?

    Typical white boy slant. They never miss an opportunity to change the narrative to their hypocrisy.

    R.I.P. Saint GEL.

  14. Sylbil Says:

    JR I know you read Michelle’s blog regularly so you can put down those that post here who you feel are democrats. So I’m giving you my answer here.

    I would have done it at the club, but I knew it would just make it difficult on my children and their father.

    You and some of the others pride yourselves on keeping it pure white. No OTWs, and that means jews too.

    Here is my answer: Obama said about police in Cambridge, Mass., arresting Harvard professor Henry Gates for trying to break into his own house. Here’s the exact quote, straight outta Wikipedia: “On July 22, President Barack Obama said about the incident, ‘I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that. But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home, and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.’ Law enforcement organizations and members objected to Obama’s comments and criticized his handling of the issue. In the aftermath, Obama stated that he regretted his comments and hoped that the situation could become a ‘teachable moment’.[3] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Louis_Gates_arrest_controversy You can read all about the incident there, and all about the independent panel’s finding in 2010 that the officers were, indeed, less than smart about how they handled the situation.

    Now, given how many times you’ve overlooked your idol’s statements after he has said he regretted them, how about no longer mad-dogging this one? It would be consistent, truthful and respectful of you to do so
    —————————–
    I’m very certain that you know that you were lying when you misquoted Obama. But I am answering you for what it is worth.

  15. Robin Says:

    Alycedale, I’m white but the more I see what the cops get away with the more I am starting to agree with you. I don’t condone violence but if that is the only way to stop oppression, then who am I to judge.

    I was at this game. Police Officers Working WNBA Game Walk Out After Players Wear ‘Black Lives Matter’ T-Shirts

    http://thinkprogress.org/sports/2016/07/12/3797316/wnba-minnesota-lynx-black-lives-matter/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=tptop3&utm_term=2&utm_content=13&elqTrackId=d784efc45d1f49d5974c383665eae9a3&elq=a441f13b70a248589be603180178dee3&elqaid=30780&elqat=1&elqCampaignId=5991
    ——————————
    When a police officer works “security” they are IN UNIFORM and are authorized to make arrests and function as a police officer (i.e., they are MUCH MUCH MORE THAN A MALL COP).

    Apparently they don’t think the Consitution (and the oath they took to uphold it) applies to the free speech rights of those they disagree with….

    And apparently, they didn’t pay attention to what teh team members said about eliminating the divide between police and citizens. Their statement made perfect sense to me….

    The cops who walked out because they didn’t like the message on the T-shirts worn by players during warm-up demonstrates all too clearly the cops’ “us vs them” mentality. That shows bad, bad police officer training.

  16. Anonymous Says:

    I swear people just ‘blindly’ defend police…When a quick google search of “Police Officers Convicted of Rape…” for instance… will let you know there’s more than just a ‘small percentage’ of corruption in police departments. Entire police departments have been involved in everything from Racism to Extortion to Prostitution to Inmate Beatings and so on. If it’s so ‘small a percentage’…why is there so much Rape, Corruption, Racism, Profiling, Domestic Abuse (40% of Domestic Abuse Victims are Family members of Police), ect? Cops are ‘human’ too, therefore they’re prone to fuck up like everyone else.

    If I were to tell you Military Police shot and killed 100 Un-Armed Service members on Military bases in the US last year….people would lose their minds. Unarmed citizens should NOT be murdered by cops who are paid by those citizens to “serve and protect.”

  17. Anonymous Says:

    Until the police call out their own for criminal behavior, racial profiling, etc. there will never be healing.

    It all starts with their attitudes and acceptance of racism within their ranks. Until that issue is dealt with, nothing will change.

    Hence, I agree with you Alycedale. My wall now has a Saints Galley. It begins with Saint Micah Xavier Johnson, and ends with Gavin Eugene Long for now.

    I truly believe it will take many more Saints to get the cops to police their own. For sure white juries and DAs will do nothing to stop thugs with badges from murdering unarmed black people.

  18. Justin Says:

    To the cops that are reading this blog. “Black Lives Matter” doesn’t mean “ONLY Black Lives Matter”, it means “Black Lives matter. TOO!” and they are just trying to drive that point home to you all.

    If you don’t police yourselves the Saints will.

  19. LW Says:

    Actually most of their events include chanting that calls for killing cops. The entire movement is based on hate of cops.

    Sure they release statements claiming not to hate cops, but we see from their behaviors and the chanting that they want all cops dead.

  20. Sam Says:

    Cops and cop supporters have ‘NO’ understanding of reading comprehension…..In 2016 #BlackLivesMatter means the same as #OnlyBlackLivesMatter….except..the #Only is ‘Silent’ and ‘Invisible’…still means the same though.

    You know….like #SaveThePolarBears is exactly the same as #OnlySaveThePolarBears..

    Or. How #SaveTheWhales means the same as #FuckTheDolphins

    Or. Everyone in this thread sits down at a dinner table to eat. Everyone, but me is brought a plate of food.

    I say wait a minute….’Sam needs Food’ and everyone at the table with a plate of food says….well yeah. ‘Everybody needs Food’….This is #True…but it does Nothing to alleviate the fact that ‘Sam needs Food’ Get It?

  21. Becky Says:

    LW#19, Wow! don’t know what you have been seeing, but that ain’t the movement at all.

    All of the violence that has occurred at any of their rallies has been initiated by the cops for no real reason except that they don’t like the movement.

    It is attitudes like yours that exemplify the racism in this country.

  22. Kyle Says:

    LW#19, you are nothing but an ass hatted bigoted liar…

  23. Maria Says:

    LW#19, how many BLM rallies have you attended across the country? How on earth would you know what “most” of their events entail? Making blanket statements without factual support diminishes credibility.

  24. Lindsay Says:

    “It is truly remarkable, and frustrating, how many people do not understand this basic point. Black Lives Matter has never called for violence as a solution to violence. They are whistleblowers who would not exist if there were not a problem, and thanks to them, millions of Americans have been made aware of that problem. It is reprehensible to suggest, as some have, that they are responsible for the actions of a deranged man armed with a weapon he never should have been able to obtain in the first place.”

    This to people who make this claim “but 99.99% of all cops are good and decent people”.

    I would advise Louis to Never. Ever. Google ‘Police Officers Convicted of __________(fill in the blank).

    Your head may literally explode. The very first page brings you down to 90%…. OMG by the time you get to page 10, you will want to kill a few yourself.

    Rape, murder, torture, theft, if it is a crime, they are doing it and getting away with it because they are cops and their fellow cops are aiding and abetting their criminal behavior.

    Yes, we need cops, but that doesn’t mean we should turn a blind eye to those that are corrupt. On the contrary, we should hold those, we give the license to kill, to a higher standard.

    Yea uh thanks for that Pets in Bed…*gag*

    2 anonymous, I agree I’m a bitch (the nicest one you’ll ever meet) but if bitch means I get things done and don’t allow others to intimidate me regardless of their gender then I wear it proudly…HOWEVER….it has no place in this race, and certainly not attacking her physicality compared to KFC chickens?! WTF?! his hair, ego and skin tone are points that many laughed at well bfr the presidential race, commenting on women and their looks as though it relates to getting a job done is pathetic petty and childish (but many, but not all…men are some of all 3 of the aforementioned) …

    Larry, hey hi it’s been awhile…and a provocative entry back into conversation.

    Yes my father was a cop so my perspective of all this goes deeper I just haven’t articulated it and it’s way lengthier than I can even write today…the observation…in my humble opinion any man who is a cop longer than 3 years falls prey to the ‘internal affairs’ indoctrination, that being … cover your ass, cover your comrades asses and if that requires lying, so be it.

    That goes for ‘good’ cops as well, they’re left with little choice (if they want a job) and I’ll add that it’s a very strong hypnotic thing to don a uniform and wield power that most of these men never ever had in life in any capacity before.

    … When it comes to ‘blacks’ my father always said there are good ones and bad ones, of course I countered with ‘same for whites or any other culture/color, that’s the best you’ve got?’ To which I would be referred to as the rebel or a ballbuster (ah the beautiful blanket term men love to use when they cannot control you or your free thinking and mostly accurately articulated thoughts) it stung for a while bc as Alycedale use to say (I still had Remnants of daddy’s girl syndrome, for sure, not anymore) but after a time and def by teen years I wore that derogatory reference well, too, bc ball buster means you call out bullshit. Well I do and I’m not sorry for it …

    But about racism in police, they will protect their black cops also but only to a point and they all know it so they protect even more (or face internal black man ‘blackballing’ or losing their job by ‘legit’ means)

    it’s all a cancer and part of that cancer is that they go on calls adrenalized (not making excuses just explaining phenomenon) often after that caffeine and sugar fueled lull (don’t kid yourselves both are drugs), they meet an innocent and immediately posture (uniform, armed, adrenalized and hypnotized into power wielding and add in some white male privileges and knowing there’s presumption of ‘self defense’ regardless of actual details if they shoot) … and that innocent is usually already agitated themselves bc they’re under pressure, whether it’s a pull over or a call, add double stress for being black or Latino … and the interaction doesn’t go well.at.all, how can it when they arrive in that state along w prejudice based on the ‘blacks kill way more blacks than we do’ (hmm so it is white on white also, where’s this logic going anyway, it justifies nothing) and things can go sideways very quickly…

    …none of the approach of cops is done well in my opinion and an entire revamping and retraining of departments across this country needs to take place. It’s undeniable that it’s gone all wrong although again it’ll turn a somewhat sane man ornery bc of the current attitudes (all men may be equal but some more than others).

    I get that a cop has ’5 seconds’ to make a call in any situation so all the more reason for them to pass psychological testing … and to get ongoing training (not the kind they’re currently receiving but the kind Vegas had to lower the bad handling of the circumstances they walk into and improve reading an interaction correctly and with respect)

    Random pull overs happen for being black, a good gf of mine owned a local coffee house and she’d get pulled over a few times a week for lame reasons, “where you headed?” Why is it illegal to drive through your main road to get to my place of business here in the beach area?? It’s crazy … She’d call me and rant at me, I totally understood it would piss me off big time.

    My father from what I’ve gathered over years of interviews was mostly a protector of other Italians, it’s no wonder I always had one in my immediate surroundings (a cop or a compadre) and that is a whole Nother story for another time.

    Luv, Zen Lill

    My sister has been sending me pictures, videos and her personal comments about her experiences in Cleveland at the RNC. Her husbands whole family has been republican forever or since they the party became rabid racists.

    She says mostly her husband’s family is complaining about the few ni88ers there getting the prime attention from the cameras and special seating.

    She said they can’t understand why the party even needs those cotton heads.

  28. Steve Says:

    I love republicans .The only kind of family values these knuckle dragging Neanderthals know anything about are the kind practiced by the Corleone family in the Godfather films . If anyone wants to see what lies beneath their hypocritical facade I advise a look at John Carpenter’s film They Live .

  29. Craig Says:

    Michelle this is typical liberal media. No longer are facts really important, but rather just making outrageous comments on hopes you get people reading your blog.

    The only shame Republicans should really feel, is how they’ve allowed the liberal media and blogs like yours to dominate information. It is the media and these types of blogs which serve to propogate all the ridiculous claims of racism against Republicans (which undoubtedly is being stirred up more in an election year).

    I can assure you (I know some nimrod will disagree) but there are racists in all political parties. Not all Republicans are racist, just like not all black people hate police officers.

    Unfortunately, the liberal media and blogs like yours only choose to focus on the radical idiots, and then makes sure they state how racist they are.

    Unfortunately as well, there are many weak-minded people in this country who rely completely on the opinions of others like you in order to form their own.

    Also of note, to completely demonstrate the bias of this particular article, how about the protestors who carried signs making claims of Trump being a racist and fascist.

    These claims are not verifiable by fact, yet not one mention of how awful these words are. (And before you do, you do not personally know Trump, therefore you cannot state that you know he is either of the two. All you can do is state your opinion).

  30. Jacque Says:

    This Democrat thinks Donald Trump is a flaming Nazi A-Hole and anyone who supports him is the same.

  31. Barry Says:

    Michelle, Have you seen the hideous things said about Trump, his family, and Republicans in-general? You’re not doing your job. Moron.

  32. Ruby Says:

    Craig#29, Maybe we feel the republicans are racists because they are the people who rage against political correctness.

    They want to say and write racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and antisemitic statements with no compunction. The same thing happened with Republicans when Geraldine Ferraro ran with Walter Mondale. I remember I was shocked when I saw a bumper sticker that said “Fritz and Tits.”

    Any woman who calls herself a Republican should be ashamed of herself. Republican females are in denial and/or are incredibly stupid.

    Republican women – these hatemongers are the core of your party. Trump is the monster that you created by fanning the flames of fear and hate. It can only get worse from here.

    Make America Great Again – like a true sociopath his motto is the exact opposite what will occur if he wins.

  33. Sylvia Says:

    Michelle, What a stupid piece of so-called commentary. Being against Hillary isn’t anti-woman.

  34. Haruki Says:

    Reading the article above, and that KFC badge is appalling, then seeing people bickering and squealing like animals in this comments section… It makes me wonder how your country survives day to day.

    It goes some way to explain why you have the highest murder and jail rates in the world…. you’re all so angry at each other when you have so much privilege. It’s disgusting.

  35. David Says:

    Being against Hillary doesn’t make you a misogynist. Attacking her looks, and character doesn’t either. Especially her character, that is one of the most important things you should judge a candidate on.

    I am not voting for her because she is no different than the previous presidents where it counts for me, and it will just be politics as usual.

    She has changed to a more progressive standpoint because of bernie, just as she did with Obama but why would anyone believe it when it is just said after it is appearing to garner public approval?

    I reject the lesser of two evils because that will never make a change in the long term.

  36. Brian Says:

    Michelle, as if your comments about Trump are calm and polite. You represent a perfect example of a side that can dish it out, but can’t take it.

  37. Lars Says:

    David#35, your reasoning is off-base and misguided.

    Donald Trump is a known liar, racist, misogynist, bully and to top it all of, an incompetent businessman.

    His failed casinos, Trump U scam, Baja Condos scam and the grossly inaccurate lies told in his book about how he “renegotiated” his debt are a complete fabrication.

    He has zero experience outside of his little real estate bubble, has no knowledge of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or how they work. He couldn’t get elected dog catcher.

    His entire campaign consists of a recycled slogan on a baseball hat – which he wears to cover up his expensive and horrible hair weave.

    His business policies have been repudiated by many top Republican corporate executives, numerous Silicon Valley tech execs and his proposed economic solutions will lead to a massive recession.

    But sure, you go ahead and support him. See where that gets you.

    You’ve got your head so far up your behind, all you can see is Fox News.

  38. Jack Says:

    Michelle, If you can ask people to vote FOR her because she is a woman then it is fair game to ask people to vote AGAINST her because she is a woman – that is FAIR!

    We don’t CARE that she wants to be the first woman. We will be happy with a woman, only not THAT woman. Only Barack Obama is in the same class as she is in the lying department and she is an even worse criminal than he is.

    She is a vile human being (not even sure that she is human) and there is NOTHING too bad to say against her. This woman must never hold public office again.

  39. Juanita Says:

    The republican propaganda machine is up and running again as ignorance is contagious!!

    So I guess you do not mind having another George W Bush. The republican president who failed to prevent the 9/11 attacks, and who went to war with another country that had nothing to do with 9/11!!

    A war, I might add, gave us ISIS and caused the deaths and displacement of tens of millions of people in the Middle East.

  40. Ruth/AF Says:

    Jack#38, Michelle can speak very well for herself, but the answer to your assertion is too obvious. No one is asking anyone to vote for Hillary because she is a woman. You obviously live in a cave.

    But if they were, how many times were we asked to vote for POTUS because he was a man. Oh, how about every time, 44 to be exact.

    And even on that you raved when the other man was not a white man. That is why you are so rabid. What will happen to your white male privileges if 16 years go by without a white man fucking up the White House?

    Damn scary, indeed for the white boy.

  41. Spike Says:

    Michelle, wake up. Hillary is a criminal who has the gall to run for President, so she deserves all the insults that are coming to her.

  42. Alycedale Says:

    Here’s the lie you get from republicans. “Do I agree with Donald Trump on everything? No. Am I going to vote for him in the presidential election? Absolutely!.

    The only thing democrats need to know is to get out and vote for Hilary and hang around and vote the republican ticket out.

    Give our next POTUS coattails.

  43. Move On member Says:

    With Mike Pence poised to take the stage tonight to formally accept the GOP nomination for vice president, I can’t stop thinking about a bill he signed into law just months ago as governor of Indiana.

    The bill makes abortion illegal in the case of fetal abnormalities.1

    You see, a little less than six years ago, I was newly pregnant with twins, when my doctor told me that one of the fetuses had Trisomy 18—a genetic disorder that affects nearly every organ system in the body.2 Half of babies born with the disorder die within their first week of life; the median lifespan is five to 15 days.3 There’s a high risk of miscarriage or stillbirth with Trisomy 18—which put my other twin at risk, since I could go into labor very early or face other serious complications.

    After my doctor explained my options and the risks, I made an anguished but clear decision to have a “selective reduction”—an abortion of the fetus with Trisomy 18, which would have been illegal under Pence’s law—to save my baby.

    About seven months later, I delivered a healthy, nearly 9 pound baby girl. My daughter is now five years old. She is strong, kind, and sings constantly.

    I don’t even want to think about what might have happened to her under Mike Pence’s vision for America. And we can’t ever let that come to pass. That’s why we have to do everything we can to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.

    If you think Trump and Pence can’t win, I beg you to take them seriously.

    In addition to being a very proud mom, I’m a political junkie and a campaign director at MoveOn. I’ve been poring over the polls, and they are not looking good. Of the last five national polls released this week, all five were within the margin of error—meaning it’s a tight race.4

    MoveOn is working to counter the spin that Pence is a cool-headed, proven leader who balances Trump’s ticket, when in reality, he makes it even more extreme. Most voters don’t yet know who Pence is, so we need to get the facts out right now.

    That’s why I’m sharing my story. Up until now, only a handful of my very close family and friends knew I was ever pregnant with twins. But we just can’t stay silent or sit on the sidelines, given how much is at stake.

    Pence has said, “I long for the day Roe v. Wade is sent to the ash heap of history.”5

    And that’s not all. In addition to rabidly opposing abortion rights, Pence thinks that women who work cause their children to have “stunted emotional growth.”6 When he was in Congress, he sponsored the very first bill to defund Planned Parenthood—and then he continued to push for the legislation year after year.7 And Pence doesn’t think women in the military should be in combat roles.8

    So it’s no surprise that Pence is the vice presidential pick of a man who once said, “Women, you have to treat them like shit.”9

    For my daughter—and for girls and women everywhere—we must stop these two dangerous men from getting to the White House.

    Thanks for all you do.
