Sex Discrimination ? Not In The 2016 Election. Hillary Even More Unlikable As A Man
What’s more President Trump came off grandmotherly as a woman ? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
A professor of economics named Maria Guadalupe was watching the presidential debates last year and had a thought. What if Trump were a woman and Hillary were a man? How would that change people’s perceptions of the exchanges in the debates?
With the help of Joe Salvatore, a professor who specializes in something called ethnodrama, Guadalupe set up a recreation of sections of the original debates using actors to play the roles of Trump, Clinton and the moderator.
Many were shocked to find that they couldn’t seem to find in Jonathan Gordon what they had admired in Hillary Clinton—or that Brenda King’s clever tactics seemed to shine in moments where they’d remembered Donald Trump flailing or lashing out
Someone said that Jonathan Gordon [the male Hillary Clinton] was “really punchable”
There was someone who described Brenda King [the female Donald Trump] as his Jewish aunt who would take care of him, even though he might not like his aunt. Someone else described her as the middle school principal who you don’t like, but you know is doing good things for you.
Make of that what you will, I for one never felt Hillary’s gender had one bit of bearing for my dislike of her or her spouse, or much of her campaign staff, surrogates or likely cabinet.
Calypso Louie Farrakhan “You (America) are number one on His(God’s) list to be destroyed.”
There’s so much wrong with this, it scarcely needs pointing out.
Louis Farrakhan, the controversial leader of the Nation of Islam, had a damning statement for the United States. He said, “The judgment of God is on America. You are the most rotten nation on the Earth. That is why God has come, and you are number one on His list to be destroyed.”
It would probably be best for Calypso Louie to worry about his own status with all mighty, especially if he didn’t get this from a heavenly messenger.
Day Without Women Platform Calls For Ending Israel
Just goes to show people in general really do need to read the things they agree to, and look very closely at who is leading their causes. If you don’t little things can come back to haunt you.
The demand for open borders and for immigrant rights and for the decolonization of Palestine are for us the beating heart of this new feminist movement.
Aside from the obvious question of how any of this relates to women’s rights, if you have “Open Borders”, just how are you going to “Decolonize” anything. There is also the question of “Just what nation is Israel a colony of ?”. If it’s not someone’s colony just where do they plan on sending the “Colonists”.
