In yet another example of Liberal drivel, Robin Lakoff, professor of linguistics at the University of California opines that EmailGate is an attack on women.
As Time Magazine reported,
I am mad. I am mad because I am scared. And if you are a woman, you should be, too. Emailgate is a bitch hunt, but the target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us.
The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man? Clinton is guilty of SWF (Speaking While Female), and emailgate is just a reminder to us all that she has no business doing what she’s doing and must be punished, for the sake of all decent women everywhere. There is so much of that going around.
The people are demanding Clinton act like moral exemplars, thundering from the pulpit like Jonathan Edwards or Cotton Mather. But Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh and their many conservative friends are not remotely Clinton’s moral superiors. They are simply bullies, using gender discrimination to give a veneer of plausibility to their accusations.
FBI Chief James Comey has shown himself to be another bully of the same kind. He has repeatedly talked down to Clinton, admonishing her as a bad parent would a 5-year-old. He has accused her of “poor judgment” and called her use of a private email server “extremely careless.” If Comey’s a Boy Scout, here’s one old lady who will never let him help her across the street.
If the candidate were male, there would be no scolding and no “scandal.” Those very ideas would be absurd. Men have a nearly absolute right to freedom of speech. In theory, so do women, but that, as the creationists like to say, is only a theory.
As for Hillary Clinton, isn’t it obvious that some devious male malcontent planted all those emails on her server? Perhaps Podesta, or maybe Weiner. Actually the most likely culprit is Bill Clinton himself. Maybe he got tired of carrying Hillary’s big ass year after painful year?
Not that it matters, but didn’t we learn from WikiLeaks that Podesta warned Hillary Clinton about her emails? He did this, after he was tipped off by a MAN in the Department of Justice. Then, after the warning, Hillary Clinton who decided to delete 33,000 emails she deemed not at issue.
Hillary was wrong, so people must die. Who cares about a few covert operatives outed by Clinton. I mean, “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!”
Unlike “Lady Hillary”, men go to jail for a fraction of what she did. That fact appears to have gone lost on the professor.
Professor Lakoff whines on,
Clinton has repeatedly apologized, but apparently not enough for her accusers. In fact, her apologies were her only mistake. By apologizing she acknowledged guilt. But that’s what women are supposed to do (because women are always guilty of something). Several members of her own staff sent emails grumbling that she was a recalcitrant apologizer. But her instinct was right: apologizing has only made her weaker. Her opponent never apologizes, not really. So accusations slide off his back like water off a duck’s.
There you have it. Clinton apologized. So what we’ve discovered even more lecherous behavior. Collusion with media, the DNC, foreign despots, and other malfeasance. She apologized!
But the part that really got me was this:
Imagine the emails the Trump campaign must be exchanging … Now those would be legitimately interesting!
Nice try, professor. Let’s forget what we’ve actually learned about Hillary Clinton’s criminal behavior and shift blame to Trump. Has it occurred to her that perhaps Trump WAS hacked as well, but there’s nothing to report?
If the FBI was on a bitch hunt, as the professor said; they found the bitch. And then there were two.
