As I watch a bunch of Hillary supporters on CNN talk about how they are definitely going to vote for McCain over Obama I start to wonder how much of their attitude is due to racism vs. the feminism that they were claiming. I can understand being a feminist and wanting Hillary over Obama. And I can even understand the thinking that Obama in some way used sexism in his campaign which would upset us all. The thing I can’t understand is how you make a leap from Hillary to McCain.
See here is my thinking. Hillary and Obama are pretty dead on in their policies they both are pro-choice the feminists stance on abortion. Now we look at McCain and Hillary and we see that they are at dead opposites on almost everything. Not to mention McCain doesn’t think that women are smart enough to be able to make decisions regarding their bodies. So how does one make the leap to McCain if Hillary was their choice? I keep hearing that it is based on experience. And that in itself is laughable and a bit contrived.
Is someone going to tell me that they are going hire someone who has experience yet brings nothing that we agree with to the table over someone who has less experience but has all the qualities we need in an employee? Now if someone is saying yes then they are a person who will cut off their nose to spite their face, because that makes no sense whatsoever. Which brings me to the only other thing that McCain has in common with Hillary and that is being white.
I already know that one of the biggest Hillary supporters who happen to now be trying to stump for McCain is a lady who worked her hardest to keep the black descendants of Thomas Jefferson out of the family tree club. And if that isn’t based on race then I don’t know what it is. So it isn’t a big jump to see that she is definitely basing her support on whoever is the white candidate. Yet, so many people are trying to make every excuse in the world for these people. I have heard news and pundits chalk this up to nothing more than anger and payback for Hillary not making the cut.
So these people couldn’t be that incensed with the Bush policies since they seem to be asking for more. Not to mention that as soon as McCain were to get into office and screw us for four more years with his Bush quality policies these will be the same complainers who will act as if they don’t know why this is happening. This is nothing more than blatant racism. We should stop trying to beat around the bush and sugar coat what these bigots are doing. They say that there is nothing that he can do to win their vote. How can that be, since even their former candidate is supporting the man. I guess she wasn’t all that influential with them after all.
So, my question to all of you is, are these people bigots or bitter?
