Hillary Clinton scares the crap out of me.
She’s a phallic woman scaring the crap out of Iranians. "Lookie here: I can drop bombs on people just as my hubby did, only I can do it one better."
Will World War Three will be started by a woman, or perhaps a left-handed vegetarian? Men shouldn’t have all the fun? Equal rights for women. I can only hope that Hillary will also scare the crap out of other women in the US, sufficiently that women will shut her up. There is no future free of a US invasion of Iran without women rising to the task to stop it. Men cannot stop her, and those in power do not want to stop her. Emulation is the highest form of flattery, and the men relish it. Obama has ordained it.
Clinton is presenting herself as the role model for modern feminists. Is she? Men could be asking the other half of the world this one. I am asking, sincerely, what constitutes feminism and political power? Is there a path to the sorely needed parity of women in public office without passing through a phallic stage? Should women aspiring to political power be, "just like men in power?" Where do we stand in terms of gender definition and gender power? What constitutes the "good public servant?" My hope is that a renewed conversation about both sex, and race, will be fruitful in unraveling the confusion of both with progressive governance. A woman could end the world and is equal in this regard with an African-American male. What we cannot survive are rounds of the disenfranchised gaining political power through emulation of the many past and present white, male empire-builders. How do we break out of this structural Achilles’ heel?
We sorely need to address gender and race and power.
What we call civilization has little room for more violent experiments. Violent outbursts originating from either gender could end it all tomorrow. We can’t afford to have a female Teddy Roosevelt. I live in the state run by The Terminator; a governor who could not have been elected without the many votes from women. If women are complaining about not having parity in politics, now is the time to act. It may well be the women of the US who will decide whether or not the US invades Iran.
She scares the crap out of me. The corporate media is soaking up the Clinton saber-rattling because ad revenues have dipped due to an idling Paris Hilton. What’s a TV broadcaster to do? Is the invasion of Iran coming soon to a TV near you?
