Morgan Brittany: American Women Dodged a Bullet when Hillary Lost
American Women dodged a bullet when Hillary lost.
Whether they know it or not, Hillary Clinton’s loss in this election was a blessing in disguise and saved the image of the American woman. What I mean by that is had she won, her image, her resume and who she is as a person would have been representative of all the women in the United States, whether they supported her or not.
Many of the women who supported Hillary were so blinded and obsessed with having a woman elected President that they ignored and overlooked the fact that she was probably one of the worst choices they could make. Think about it. If things had gone her way and she prevailed as the first woman to break that glass ceiling and become the leader of the free world, look at who we would have elected.
First of all, Hillary Clinton is not an honest person. In harsh terms, she is a liar, who flat out lied to the American people and does not hesitate to lie to further her agenda or to save herself from legal messes. Second, she is not trustworthy. When asked by voters if she was honest and trustworthy, her negative rating hovered around 68% “not trustworthy”. That number didn’t move throughout the entire campaign. Third, she put our country’s national security in danger by setting up her own private email server in her home and then sent out “classified and confidential” emails to numerous recipients. She was chastised by the FBI for being “extremely careless” with classified information and they found a 90% probability that her emails had been hacked by numerous foreign entities.
When realizing that her emails were under subpoena, she had them deleted, and destroyed what was on the server using “bleach-bit” so that no one could retrieve them. She also made sure that many of her devices were smashed into pieces with a hammer so that nothing could be found. Obviously she is someone who has no regard or respect for the law.
Putting the emails aside, there is the Clinton Foundation, “pay for play” allegations and the enormous donations that were received by that organization from many countries that have absolutely no respect for women or for gay rights. She had no problem taking money from these countries and smiled all the while. She and her husband had no qualms about giving high-dollar speeches and holding out their hands to take the millions offered even if it was “blood money”.
If you look at her track record with women, it is abominable. During her husband’s presidency, and even before, she would do whatever she had to do in order to tamp down the many allegations that he faced when confronted with allegations of assaults, rapes and affairs. Instead of condemning his actions, she went on a “seek and destroy” mission with her fellow “hit-man” Sidney Blumenthal, and systematically tried to destroy, demean and discredit any woman who tried to come forward with her story. The “Bimbo Eruptions” wing at the White House was in full force throughout the Clinton years. It is almost comical that during her campaign she would stand up and say over and over again how “women who have been sexually abused have a right to be heard”. Sure, they have a right to be heard, unless it is about her husband, then they need to be destroyed at any cost.
Her campaign, the DNC and those around her would stoop to levels so low that when the truth came out many people were fired. She made sure that her cozy relationship with the DNC derailed Bernie Sanders’ campaign. The fix was in from the start and poor Bernie and all of his supporters were duped. Her campaign staff kept the major media outlets on speed dial and there was an open dialogue about questions and answers, any help the media could give her and of course, the cheating during the debates when Donna Brazile gave her the questions that were going to be asked. When this was uncovered, the heat was on Brazile, but realistically, Hillary took the questions, so she knows that she was cheating. They can blame everyone else, but ultimately, Hillary made the decisions.
I think the worst possible thing that she did and the one that is unforgivable, is when she allowed four of our bravest Americans to die in Benghazi and then blatantly and coldly lied about it, then lied to the faces of the families as they stood in front of their dead sons coffins. This, to me, shows who she really is. For any person to be able to do that and then continue to lie and cover up the truth shows the true character of a person. But then, “What…difference at this point does it make?” They are dead to her, let’s move on.
So, is this really the person that American women wanted to represent them all around the world? Is this really who women wanted to be listed in the history books as the “first woman president”? After all the years of fighting for the status and power of the presidency, is the image of Hillary Clinton what you would have really wanted? Someone who was scandal ridden for over 30 years, someone who, as an attorney, laughed about defending and getting off a known rapist? Someone who does not have the compassion, honor and integrity that all women want to see in their first woman president?
It disappoints me that so-called feminists have defended her and overlooked the reality of who she really is. While many women did vote for her, many did not and thankfully, that made the difference in this election.
I for one, want the first woman president to be someone who I can be proud of. It really doesn’t matter if she is Republican, Democrat or any other party, I want a woman that is honest, has values, and is not running from scandal. I may not 100% agree with everything she says, but I want someone with integrity. I want someone who will command respect in the eyes of the world and not be looked at as a dishonest grifter whose quest for power is for her own personal gain and not for the good of the country.
There is a woman out there who will be our future president. She is coming. But hopefully, she will be someone whom we can all be proud of, someone that women can say they identify with and want their daughters and granddaughters to follow. Hopefully she will be a role model for women and she will break that ceiling and change the course of history.
Hillary was not the right woman and this was not the right time.
