Hillary’s Emailgate Is An Attack On Women Or Something

Robin Lakoff has a bit of a hissy fit over at Time regarding EmailGate, deeming it sexxxxxist

Hillary Clinton’s Emailgate Is an Attack on Women

‘It’s not about emails; it’s about public communication by a woman’

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.

So, we have to be Clinton supporters to demand that she act in a moral manner? Of course, it is years to late for that. But, hey, gender discrimination. Apparently, the super strong Hillary Clinton needs protection to operate.

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 you can believe it, an adult wrote that. Someone who is in charge of teaching. Teaching an obscure and rather meaningless discipline, linguistics, and works for the U of California Berkeley, but, an adult teacher nonetheless. Is it really worth responding on a point by point basis, or, use

It really doesn’t get any better, either. She even attempts to turn this whole thing into a Free Speech issue, which, apparently, only men are entitled to in this society, according to Ms. Lakoff. Because Free Speech has always been about initiating a private email server against federal law, Executive Office and State Dept rules, then pass classified and sensitive information through it, some at the highest levels of classification which people who received it had no security clearance to view it, then delete emails in violation of subpoena, then lie and obfuscate.

She ends with

Imagine the emails the Trump campaign must be exchanging … Now those would be legitimately interesting!

Probably. But, do they involve transmitting America’s secrets in a manner contradicted by law? Doesn’t matter, because this is about sexxxxxism.

    One word…


  2. Dana says:

    Let’s see, David Petraeus, a white male, played fast and loose with classified information, though exposing it only to one woman — one with whom he was having an affair, an Army officer herself — and he pleaded guilty to two felony charges. Bradley Manning, a white male, was sentenced to 35 years in federal prison, for giving classified information to Wikileaks. Edward Snowden is hiding from prosecution in Russia for giving out classified information.

    It seems that the lovely Dr Lakoff is arguing that Mrs Clinton should be treated differently from a while male, because she has a vagina.

  3. drowningpuppies says:

    Forty-five percent of voters said they agreed with Trump’s claim that emailgate is worse than Watergate.

    Except Nixon didn’t have a vag…


  4. Liam Thomas says:

    Can you say 640,000.


    thats how many emails they found on this laptop. They had the lap top for almost a month before Comey finally had to come out with reopening the investigation…..

    which means they found some serious shit on this thing.

    They will all get off…..HRC will win the White House and never be impeached as the crime enabling left covers for her at every turn….not fuking realizing that they still got a leftist in Kaine as Prez…its not like they would be giving up the white house or anything…..

    But no…chronological decievers and liars these politicans cannot admit that one of their own falls to the level of what they paint the right to be daily.


    Thats a lot of evidence to try and explain away…..but of course as the left is proclaiming these are duplicates to the 33,000 emails HRC turned over…..

    640,000=33,000 in leftist math.

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    The DOJ will commit what ever resources are necessary to get Hillary Clinton exonerated again before election day…

    The best friend of John Podesta, Clinton’s Campaign chairman, at the DOJ will be in charge of a probe that could potentially sink Hillary Clinton.


  6. Liam Thomas says:

    And you cant impeach a prez that has not been put in office yet….so if nothing else she will just pardon herself and 50-100 aides on day one and this will all be over legally and I was watching Waters talk to college kids last night that were in a stupor…..they didnt even know who was running…..

    And he does not edit his tape…so he claims….These guys just said they were voting for the democrat….What was wikileaks….blank stares….what was the scandal surrounding Hillary……blank stares….

    Party down bro….was the theme…keep em poor….keep em stupid….keep em voting for Democrats…..

    perhaps a new slogan for the DNC….and people wonder why the right wants to get rid of the DOE and let the states run their own education.

  7. Liam Thomas says:

    Al Gore was a psychic when he coined the phrase “Inconvenient Truth”

    The truth is only inconvenient when it challenges the lefts thinking, plans and policies and LIES and deceptions and agenda.

    The truth is the truth….yet its a conspiracy because its inconvenient for the left right now….

    The truth is a lie…when the truth affects the lefts agenda….never tell the truth if it hurts the agenda…..

    The truth must be surpressed because after all its the TRUTH and thats INCONVENIENT.

  8. Dana says:

    Since every criticism of President Obama is racist, then we must expect that, if Her Majesty is elected, all criticism of her will be sexist.

  9. Liam Thomas says:

    A few weeks back the RCP average had Hillary up by plus 8, then it was plus 5 today its plus 2.2 and falling.

    But again I must caution that she literally only has to win two of the states that are trending left not solid left.

    Trumps still gotta pretty much run the table….getting all that Romney got plus Ohio, Florida, Iowa, NC, AZ, NV and then either colorado, NH or PA, MICH or Wisc.

    The election is wave riding against the left right now…..3 races called for the Democrats giving them the Senate are now back firmly in the GOP’s hands as in NC, NH and PA….this makes it a tie….

    who wins the WH will determine who controls the senate….Of course the VP breaks all ties and that would be either a democrat or a Republican if Trump is elected…

    Will the rising tide be enough….trump needs to stay on message and get a lot of messages out on the internet and social media that he is here to help the lefts base….not penalize them.

  10. Liam Thomas says:

    Its time for the GOP and the never trumpers to understand they have a chance to take back the White House and hold the senate now.

    HRC is the titantic….will she go down with the ship or ride it out till election day and get rescued?

    The GOP needs to get their ground game into full swing if they want to win this thing…

  11. drowningpuppies says:

    Whoa, even Chrissy Matthews is endorsing Trump!

  12. Liam Thomas says:

    I heard Barak Obama wrote a check to Trumps Campaign.

  13. Jim Mayer says:

    – I’m gonna tell you the year you were born after these important messages-
    A Weiner should find a new hole to dive into & not pleasure self by constant in & out, going & coming, w/o protection. If Anthony did contact HC by email, it’d probably be 1st time she’d come in contact with A Weiner.

    Take my advice. Run & hide bc if H thinks u cost her election, u in danger- like Mr Assange. HC’s squirreled away $2Bil offshore, she’ll have the $ to hire all the hitters for all her haters. Security caught one scaling Assange’s Embsy but he, ‘got away.’ Police response time- 2hrs. Police distance by foot-120 secs. Hmmm.

    Re MedBias: TheWeatherChannel is completely biased. They don’t even try to disguise their pro-weather far-wing agenda. It’s clear because of high pressure, they’re a front for Big Weather.

    1)Think of a disgusting person. If they scream- ‘A meteor is going to hit US in 4 hours!’ Do you say- ‘They’re disgusting so I’m not gonna even see if it’s true?’ 2) A low IQ man says 4+4=8. Do u say- ‘His IQ is so low, 8 can’t be right.’ Which is more important: The source, or the information’s accuracy?

    Even if known liar HC or Donna Brazile told me a meteor was about to strike the US, I’m not gonna stand around bc I distrust the source, bet cash money- I’m gonna find out if it’s true!

    Which brings me to the weak attempts by Dems to convince us to ignore truths being revealed by WLks- ‘bc they were unfairly obtained.’ – It almost makes tears well up in my eyes.

    We dislike Russia. Dems want us to disregard the ems bc they claim Russia’s behind them. So the hell what? Even if we gave Dems benefit of the doubt, Russia didn’t create the ems, they just hacked ‘um & revealed them to us.

    I don’t know their real source, but I DO know Dems don’t contest their accuracy. They don’t even go, ‘Nuh uh!’ when confronted. They just throw up ‘Jazz Hands’ & shout, ‘RUSSIA!’ – Like that even matters.
    Just how stupid do we are they think?

    The Bible has 66 books. Subtract your age from 66, & add 50 – that’s the year you were born. Speaking of witches, shame on you DonBrazile for dragging Christ’s Holy Name thru the mud when you invoked your so-called Christianity while lying to MegKelly about giving Clinton camp questions. You’re not only a liar, you support the murder/dismemberment of babies. WWJD? You may sit in a pew Sunday, but that doesn’t make you a Christian.

  14. Liam Thomas says:

    “Fantastic lawyer. Kept me out of jail,” Podesta wrote on Sept. 8, 2008 to Obama aide Cassandra Butts, according to emails hacked from Podesta’s Gmail account and posted by WikiLeaks.

    The corruption and Crime syndicate run by the Clintons runs long and deep and infects everyone around them.

  15. Liam Thomas says:

    Ive always like Chris Mathews except when he went all tingly for Obama…..He is definitely are lefty but I think he has never been in the Clinton column….Doug Schoen a democratic pollster and who worked in the Clinton white house for Bill…came out last night and said he will no longer support Hillary….He did not endorse Trump but he cant vote for HRC.

    The flood is roaring down the democratic pathway and the foundation is crumbling…..

    After listening to Trump finally stop spending 19 hours a day with one message….HRC is a crook and started laying out policy is when I started giving trump a second look….My wife and I early voted yesterday and YES…IWAS A NEVER TRUMPER but we both voted for TRUMP because HRC is nothing but a Crime Boss preying on the stupidity of the American voter….

    I cant abide liars….but when you combine that with blatant Criminality its a no brainer election day…..

    Trump/Pence actually I believe are moderate to slightly left but I dont care I believe he really wants to help everyone but Washington D.C….

    time for the GOP to get on the wagon and ride her to getting something done for a change …….FOR EVERYONE….EVERYONE…..ALL AMERICANS….not just one party like the left wants to continue to do….Like obama spent 8 years doing…..


  16. drowningpuppies says:

    ….My wife and I early voted yesterday and YES…IWAS A NEVER TRUMPER but we both voted for TRUMP…

    Good for you and your wife and your family…!

  17. Liam Thomas says:

    Silver says of the polling trend adjustments. “But the point is that it’s kind of naïve to assume that if the national polls, say, have broken and moved 5 points toward Trump, that that hasn’t happened in Ohio, in Pennsylvania, and Florida whether or not we have polls there.”

    In other words the slam dunk that Silver and others were predicting a month ago is no longer so…In fact When Democrats start jumping ship a week before election while belated GOp’ers are climbing back on the life raft thrown by Trump then its clear that the Tsunami’s third and fourth wave are coming….

    One can only speculate what kind of final Surprise HRC and her Mafia Henchmen are going to throw at Trump on about thursday which is about the perfect time to hit with it and not afford Trump time to swat it down.

    Stay tuned

  18. drowningpuppies says:

    All things being equal, seems one would want to be the nominee drawing the huge rally crowds… and not the one being pursued by the FBI.

  19. Jeffery says:

    Trump goes on trial for racketeering (Trump U) in November. Goes to court to defend himself against child rape in December. He currently is defending himself in some 75 lawsuits. He is hiding his tax returns, hasn’t paid federal taxes in 10 years, broke laws in handling the Trump Foundation funds.

    And Clinton’s emails are what the media focus on.

  20. drowningpuppies says:

    –that little guy who lied about serving in the Army

    What a feeble little brain you have.

  21. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    He also admitted to committing vote fraud so he lied on at least as many fake votes as he cast. A liar and a criminal. Seems like a lot of that’s going around the democrat party lately. I think that whole post is nothing but lies. Why would anyone trust a lying vote cheat?

    Just another unindicted democrat.

  22. drowningpuppies says:

    The argument from Team Trump in the closing days of the election is that Hillary Clinton is too corrupt to rule. He’s painting her as the face of the larger problem, which is the metastasizing corruption of the ruling class. It’s a good closing argument and it resonates, but the reason Hillary should not rule is she is dangerously incompetent and she surrounds herself with outlandishly stupid people. A society can survive crooked rulers, but it cannot survive stupid ones. Hillary Clinton is too stupid to rule.


  23. drowningpuppies says:

    But Abedin’s role in this caper begs for fresh scrutiny. Making false statements to a federal agent is a felony. So is mishandling classified information.

    Awesome then we get Mike Pence as our next president….probably the only one of the four qualified for the job anyway….lolololol.

  25. David7134 says:

    Which is it, are you lying or stupid or both. Do you know the difference between civil and criminal. Hillary is going to jail irrespective of if she wins or not, for her emails, Rico and the other 100 crimes.

  26. Liam Thomas says:

    Its not even the emails as much as it is the Clinton foundation….The FBI has devoted 5 regional offices into looking into the Clinton foundation…..Comey I think sees the writing on the wall and wants to be FBI director after Obama is gone and we have a new Justice Department that hopefully is not full of Mafia leftists. I mean even the last DOJ was held in contempt for not turning over relevant documents on fast and furious and he didnt care…..They have their own laws and agenda and screw the American people.

    I think this is why Comey released the documents on Bill Clinton too yesterday…..He understands just how corrupt the left has made the DOJ and the FBI is incapable of doing the job with so much corrupt politics involved in protecting the laws of the land.

    Obama has distanced himself from HRC by saying Comeys doing a good job…..He realizes now…..that HRC is destroying his legacy….that when its all said and done he might end up with the WORST most Corrupt administration in the History of the USA and that I am sure is not what he wanted….yeah he was willing to play politics with the law….but not THIS……

    Blacks are furious with Clinton…..Obama is furious with her….I am surprised Michelle and Obama are still campaigning for her….but I guess they need her to win now so all this can be swept under the rug by another corrupt DOJ.

    Justice for ALL……………CLINTONS>
