The Hillary Clinton blame game reached critical mass over the weekend when the two-time failed presidential candidate implied that she lost the 2016 election because women – particularly white women – can’t think for themselves.
Clinton alludes that struggles with white women voters are attributable to their fathers, husbands, boyfriends https://t.co/hySfbvDswP

During an interview with NPR’s Morning Edition, host Rachel Martin mentioned to Clinton “that a good number of young women didn’t vote for you, which is presumably not a sexist choice. They just weren’t inspired by your message.”
But Clinton wasn’t satisfied with Martin’s logical assessment. “I think it’s a lot more complicated than that,” Clinton opined, before reaching back into history to slap every suffragette in the face:
Women will have no empathy for you because they will be under tremendous pressure — and I’m talking principally about white women — they will be under tremendous pressure from fathers, and husbands, and boyfriends and male employers, not to vote for ‘the girl.’
This is low – even for Clinton. She claims to be a champion of women and children, and yet here she is blaming women as one of the myriad reasons she’s not currently President of the United States.
Even worse: Clinton qualifies her statement by making it crystal clear that she’s “talking principally about white women.” Because in the liberal mindset it’s perfectly okay to make racist statements so long as they’re about white people. And because Clinton herself is white, she’ll earn extra brownie points with minorities for being “woke.”
But Clinton didn’t just blame white women’s Trump-supporting husbands for her loss – she also blamed “Bernie Bros” for bullying liberal women into supporting Bernie Sanders rather than her:
And we saw a lot of that during the primaries from Sanders supporters, really quite vile attacks online against women who spoke out for me, as I say, one of my biggest support groups, Pantsuit Nation, literally had to become a private site because there was so much sexism directed their way.
Somehow it always comes back to sexism, doesn’t it? But the irony of it all is that Clinton probably doesn’t even realize that her blame of white women – not to mention the implication that we can’t think for ourselves – is sexist (and racist!) in and of itself.
Women chose not to vote for Clinton all on their own. And given her above comments, it’s not hard to see why.
