Because ideas have consequences

You Owe Her Your Vote

with 2 comments

According to Madeline Albright, women are duty bound to vote for Hillary Clinton. Speaking at a Clinton event on Saturday, Albright expounded on “why young women have to support Hillary Clinton,” continuing, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”

I can’t think of a better illustration of the collectivist nature of the Democrats. When they look at you, they don’t see you as an individual. You are a data point, a face in the crowd. All decisions reduce to identity politics. You have no business thinking for yourself.

  1. It’s just the expression of an old, 2nd wave feminist, typical of the Clinton campaign, but not of Democrats in general. The young voters I talked to were offended by the statement, which is sexist.

    • The collectivism and fascination with identity politics are not limited to the Hillary Clinton campaign. I crack open my copy of What’s the Matter with Kansas and find this quote on page 1:

      When I told a friend of mine about that impoverished county so enamored of President Bush, she was perplexed. “How can anyone who has ever worked for someone else vote Republican?” she asked. How could so many people get it so wrong?

      Democrats have been in thrall to identity politics for over thirty years, and stuck on economic determinism for longer than that.
