Hillary’s Latest Electoral Foe: White Fathers, Husbands, and Boyfriends
“They will be under tremendous pressure from fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers not to vote for ‘the girl’”
Hillary’s 3,476th reason for her embarrassing electoral loss is probably my favorite yet: THE PATRIARCHY! But just the white patriarchy.
While traipsing about the country peddling her version of the 2016 election, Hillary explained that white woman were under great pressure from their white fathers, husbands, and boyfriends not to vote for “the girl”.
From The Guardian:
Last week, Clinton, who has had a lifetime to contemplate the women’s vote, copped to having a theory. “[Women] will be under tremendous pressure – and I’m talking principally about white women. They will be under tremendous pressure from fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers not to vote for ‘the girl’,” she said in an interview as part of a tour promoting her new memoir of the 2016 campaign.
People might scoff at the idea that women vote based on what husbands and fathers tell them to do. And tens of millions of dollars in political messaging has been spent based on the assumption that women will vote collectively on equal pay, abortion, and other salient issues regarding women’s autonomy.
But social science backs up Clinton’s anecdotal hunch. “We think she was right in her analysis about women getting pressure from men in their lives, specifically [straight] white women,” said Kelsy Kretschmer, an assistant professor at Oregon State University and a co-author of a recent study examining women’s voting patterns.
“We know white men are more conservative, so when you’re married to a white man you get a lot more pressure to vote consistent with that ideology.”
Contrary to The Guardian’s editorializing here, in her full quote, Hillary blamed Sanders supporters, not conservatives, for excessive sexism during the presidential primaries:
And we saw a lot of that during the primaries from Sanders supporters, really quite vile attacks online against women who spoke out for me, as I say, one of my biggest support groups, Pantsuit Nation, literally had to become a private site because there was so much sexism directed their way.
Conservative or Socialist isn’t really the point here, Hillary is saying white women are far more easily swayed than any other ethnicity’s women, none of whom, presumably, had difficulty overcoming their overbearing male overlords to cast their ballot for “the girl”.
Of course, this assumption is not in any way tethered to reality where woman chose not to vote for Hillary because she was an awful candidate who rather patronizingly suggested women ought support her for no other reason than her womanhood.

It could not possibly have anything to do with women who are married, earning an income, paying taxes, and rearing children being wiser, informed, concerned about the direction of the country, concerned about the future their children will have, and therefore rejecting another consecutive marxist as POTUS.
The basic error is the left starts every discussion with the presumption that women are all monolithic in thought and have the exact sames interests.
The left applies that presumption to ALL of its identity groups. That’s why they come unglued when someone steps out of the leftist defined bounds.
Hillary, please go home. Take a walk in the woods,the DeepWoods! Look for Sasquatch tell it your story. We have heard ENOUGH!
The Left also always presumes that women are stupid!
They’re not and that’s why most women are natural conservatives!
Women so listen to the mean in their lives, but not because pressure is put on them. Men are a leading indicator because they pay more attention to politics. And she knows very well it wasn’t oppposition to women that was cause of opposition to her.
I’m thinkingg maybe the aim is not win the next election, but to get people’s money.
Shut up Hillary. Please.
Pssst….Hillary. Out here in fly over country it isn’t just us white folk that dislike you.
By the time her litany of blame concludes will there be anyone left whom she hasn’t insulted?
Apparently, the only person that she is not going to blame is herself. And she is the person most to blame, because she is not particularly successful and is indisputably and insufferable bitch.
I find it mind-boggling to consider all that we’ve been spared. Now, if we could just relegate
her to iCloud or some sort of archival system.
And after all the brain damage from drinking, she’s not overly bright these days either.
“Of course, this assumption is not in any way tethered to reality where woman chose not to vote for Hillary because she was an awful candidate who rather patronizingly suggested women ought support her for no other reason than her womanhood.”
I mean it was literally her ENTIRE CAMPAIGN SLOGAN.
‘I’m with her’. To do what? Whatever Hillary feels like doing because its her turn.
Can someone get word to Hillary that it’s not 1950 anymore…?
Back when the Clintons came to national attention in ’92, for all my differences with their politics I admired Hillary for being a strong independent woman who had her own career as a successful lawyer rather than being an attachment to her husband. As she herself put it, she chose not to be the kind of woman who stayed a home and baked cookies and had teas. It was a disappointment when I found out that her successful law career mostly consisted of laundering her husband’s bribes. I mean, really. Doing your husband’s laundry is a lot more old-fashioned than baking cookies and having teas.
1850. Hilary thinks it is still 1850 I think………
Any doubt this woman is not a complete sociopath?
And fortunately for us, an incompetent one?
The great shame is America having a two-tier justice system. Otherwise, this woman would be joining other traitors in US prisons.
As the left bans other viewpoints from their platforms they are more and more convinced that everyone thinks like they do in their echo chamber.
Feminists and Liberals are the worst misogynists.
Women are not responsible for how much they drink before sex, but the man is, for both of them, while he’s getting equally drunk.
Women are not responsible for the reproductive choices they make. They get a do-over with abortion. But if the man makes a poor decision he’s going to be enslaved financially for 20 years. And if you can’t pay up he’ll be imprisoned even if he’s unemployed.
And now the most corrupt female politician in the history of the United States assumed women have no mind of their own and are easily influenced and manipulated by their male relatives.
Feminism. You’ve come a long way baby.
Hillary’s silly book is not a work of history, nor is it intended to be any kind of self-help through carthasis. It’s not even intended to make money—she’s already stolen gobs of that; an obscenely large advance or two won’t add all that much to the pile.
No, the book is an encomium intended to convince the big money people in The Party that she is still a contender for the Presidency. And, when dealing with Liberals, the one thing she cannot do is admit the possibility that any of the failure is hers. In Liberal territory, shortcomings—real or imaginary—are never forgotten, and never forgiven.
The only causes which can be considered are external ones, because those can be addressed by The Party next time by putting just a little more effort into the standard bag of electoral tricks—propaganda, lies, fraud and bribery. The Party has plenty of that stuff on tap, it just has to be distributed correctly … and if it is, she’ll be able to Make History™.
“Social science backs up”
Lol. This is the same rigorous discipline that puts out steady every 6 months to convince liberals that they are enlightened in sophisticated and not ignorant idiots.
The science is settled. And um… our computer models were off by 30%. “Science”.
I also love the underhanded application that while we are all encouraged to go talk to her neighbor about his horrible decision to vote for Trump somehow wrong for a relative to the same thing in opposition to Hillary.
These people are twisted and delusional.
“Social Science” (which is no science at all – or anything even close to real science)…..
Yes Social Science – those looney colleges of universities that call
Economics the Queen of the Social Sciences!
I kid you not.
Dear Verizon this is the 21st century. Please stop hiring Engineers based on diversity and get some guys who can create a voice recognition program.
Also a “smart” phone should be a convenience in my life. Instead I feel like I’m having to manage a three year old child every day.
Actually we said don’t vote for the witch (with a capital B).
She needs to look at the things SHE controls. I remember there was a moment in the campaign when someone asked her about something Trump said. And her response was something like, “I can’t control what he says. I’m going to run the best campaign I know how to win.”
I remember thinking that was a pitch perfect response. It was a recognition that she was focused on only the things SHE can control. Her strategy, her ideas, her messaging, her campaign. She can’t control what Trump says. Or Comey. Or Russia. Or any of the other boogeymen.
But now that she’s lost, she wants to blame the loss on things she had no control over to avoid taking responsibility. Weak leader.
Dem presidential slogans (translated)
2000-Vote for us or you’re against rich elitist snobs and you want the earth to burn in fire!
2004-Ok, that didn’t work. Vote for us or you’re against really rich elitist snobs!
2008-Damnit! Vote for us or you’re racist!
2012-Hey, that worked well. Vote for us or you want puppies tied to the tops of cars!
2016-Vote for us or you’re sexist!
2020-Hey, you sexist, elitist, bigots! Crawl over here and kiss Hillary’s feet or we’ll get *really* angry!!
In all of my years voting, I have never had anyone in the voting booth with me. Does Hillary think that women have men looking over their shoulders to ensure that they voted according to hubby?
Hillary should know that women can lie, so can men.
“Hillary should know that women can lie…”
No woman’s proved that more than hillary clinton.
Hillary knows first hand that her man repeatedly lies, she was his master coach and mentor starting in Little Rock.
“They will be under tremendous pressure from fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers not to vote for ‘the girl’”
Fortunately, said fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers are not allowed into the voting booth with the women.
That is the end of that theory.
I have my own theory.
There are a lot of women in this country who are old enough to remember Hillary in the White House, defending her errant husband tooth and nail. Those women saw her contend that her husband’s sexual behavior outside marriage was irrelevant to the Presidency. These people remembered, and then saw her pretend that DJT was unqualified to be President because he said something much milder than her husband, and certainly acted better.
How dare she?
Also, she did the same thing to Bernie Sanders that Obama did to her, in the primaries. For an awful lot of PUMAs, that had to be the last straw.
So, yes, I think that white women of a certain age played a role in this election. That role was, when the silly young girls started asking questions, the response would start out,”You have no idea, honey. Let me tell you what this is really about.”
Old white women are not intimidated by their men, or any other men. They do have memories, and they wised up their nieces.
I see it never occurs to Hillary and that idiot sociologist (but I repeat myself) that these white women have minds of their own and the didn’t enjoy hearing Hillary insult their husbands, sons, brothers, fathers and uncles as a basket of deplorables. MOreover, they had minds of their own long before Hillary Clinton ever ran for the presidency. They aren’t being controlled by their husbands. They CHOSE to marry their men in large part because they share their husbands’ values.
If The men in their lives are deplorable, what is Hillary saying about them and their choices and their values?
At least, that’s what I hear from the white women here in North Texas who are far stronger and more free thinking than whiny Hillary “Stand by your man and smear his mistresses” Clinton, whose only achievement in life is getting her undergrad MRS at Wellesley and her graduate MRS at Yale and then riding Billy Jeff’s coat tails as far as they could take her, will ever live to be or ever has been.
Hillary is Chicago born and bred remember.
She is no true lady….of the South…….
Well, the good news is that according to the latest UN estimates their are 7.5 billion people on this planet. So she’s rapidly running out of other people to blame.
The bad news is that there are an estimated ten octillian planets in the known galaxies so if Hillary starts blaming life on other planets for her loss this could go on for a long, loong time.
This could be the longest Jigai in history.
Hillary Clinton understands that men (and family life) are the problem:
“We have an epidemic of violence against women, even though there is no longer any organized warfare that puts women in the direct line of combat. But domestic violence is now recognized as being the most pervasive human rights violation in the world … 1 in 6 women have been sexually assaulted and the number of domestic abuse complaints at just one agency topped 10,000 last year. Between 25 and 50 percent of women throughout Latin America have reportedly been victims of domestic violence.”
Just as Hillary Clinton has always understood that women are the primary victims of war:
“Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat. Women often have to flee from the only homes they have ever known. Women are often the refugees from conflict and sometimes, more frequently in today’s warfare, victims. Women are often left with the responsibility, alone, of raising the children. Women are again the victims in crime and domestic violence as well. ”
Is it really such a mystery that women who are not irredeemably hostile toward their husbands, sons, brothers, fathers and other men in their lives might have difficulty reconciling her worldview with their lived experience?
How can a woman with leftist economic policies and social policies get any Democrat men to vote for her? She can only play the woman card.
Firstly nobody has referred to Hillary as a girl in 40 years.
Secondly, are white women uniquely impressionable? Why aren’t white men being persuaded by their mothers, wives and girlfriends? Isn’t treating women as if they don’t know their own minds sexist?
Touche and touche!
Hillary is so out of touch she doesn’t even know the use of “girls” is an insult to women. But then Democrats don’t really care about that or any issue they claim to champion.
Still, she persisted.
Is Hilary still in the “Resist Pants” movement, or is that only
Bill Clinton left in that now?
Hillary is just simply lying – she doesn’t beleive a word of thsi – and possibility trying to push some women to vote for her.
While she may not be exactly yet planning ro run again, she’s doing all this on the basis that she would, or hhas a female puppet in mind for a candidate next time (Kirsten Gillibrand?)
