Why Snoop Dogg is voting for Hillary

Why Snoop Dogg is voting for Hillary

Ah, sexism

Forget the primary debates, Snoop Dogg has already decided for whom he’ll cast his ballot next November — Hillary Clinton.

During an interview with Bravo this past Sunday, a caller dropped a political question into the mix. Noting that Snoop was a Ron Paul supporter in 2012, this particular caller was curious to learn Snoops views on the coming 2016 election.

“I like to be politically correct, but sometimes I’m politically incorrect,” a shaded Snoop responded.

“I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought, and just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far representing America — I would love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Mrs. Clinton.”

There’s a sexist case to be made here — choosing a political candidate based on sex rather than merit is certainly not congruent with progressive thinking.

But if Snoop is dead set on sending a woman to the White House, might we humbly suggest he check out Carly Fiorina? Fiorina is by far the bigger badass in the the Chick Fight League of the 2016 contest.

“It’s time for a woman in the White House” is the repackaged version of 2008’s “it’s time for an African-American president.” Neither “reason” — noble-intended as they may be, satisfy Dr. King’s dream. Neither is colorblind nor capable of penetrating the shallow shell of a person in order to get a better glimpse of their heart and character.

It’s certainly never acceptable to hire someone solely because they’re a woman when plenty of qualified male candidates abound. Why should it be acceptable to elect a president for that same (illegal) reason?

Whenever I hear someone say they support Hillary simply because she thinks a woman should become president, I’m tempted to ask if she would support Casey Anthony for president.

Snoop should demand a DNA test first. I’m not sure Hillary qualifies for his vote.

    Oops, they just did it.

    Turns out Hillary is neither human, animal, vegetable nor mineral.

Are you seriously going to vote your vagina?

“..and then Snoop added,’Man…this is sum goooooooood shit,’Yo.'” AP

There must be something about which I care less than this jerk, but it is not coming to mind.

Anything that he says, do the opposite. I wish young black males would take that advice.

Why Snoop Dogg is voting for Hillary

Because he’s stupid?

This dog and Obama do have in common the fact they are both low-life stoners.

What Obama does have going for him that this dog does not, is his disdain for Clinton.

One doesn’t need to invoke sexist arguments to support Fiorina, but, strictly as an aside, I’ll take the hot, elegantly curvaceous Carly in a dress any day over the frumpy waddling sHrillary in a Maoist pantsuit.

Kinda wish some black guy like Cory Booker would enter the fray and folks like Snoop Lion or Snoop Dog or whatever identity crisis he is this week would be made fools of with one simple question: “you originally supported Hillary, now you are supporting a black man….is that not racist?”

it is impossible to overestimate the unimportance of his opinion (or even his existence) to me.

Snoop Dogg:

“I like to be politically correct, but sometimes I’m politically incorrect….I’ll be voting for Mrs. Clinton”

He seems to be saying that to vote for Hillary Clinton is to be “politically incorrect!!”

This is tremendously good news.

It means that Hillary Clinton is not very popular in his circles. (Although it is hard to tell how far hi circles go.)

But there’s corroborating evidence.

Indeed, Bernie Sanders, who is hoping to be 2016s Eugene McCarthy to Hillary’s LBJ, is quickly attracting a tremendous number of followers on Facebook, and sometimes getting to the top on Reddit, even though he doesn’t do anything that Facebook recommends for attracting followers.

    It’s a canned comment….he’s saying that Mrs. is non-PC but what he’s really saying is voting for Billary rather than Hillary.

He’s voting for someone who has no intention of legalizing weed.

How curious. I figured he’s voting for Clinton because he’s dumb as a post.

Because Snoop has no soul?

Is that why he’s voting for the thing?
