If Bernie Is A Sexist For Running Against Hillary, Isn’t Hillary an Age-ist And Anti-Jewish For Running Against Bernie?
The name-calling and identity politics that passes for truth and reason in the Democrat Party is not only directed at competitors outside the Party. Recently a Hillary supporter called Bernie Sanders a sexist because he would not drop out of the race for the Democrat candidacy for president. So much for traditional campaigning in an effort to persuade the public that your candidate is the better one and that his/her ideas are the best ideas. Now the Democrat establishment candidate (Hillary) is calling the Democrat anti-establishment candidate (Bernie) the same names that they typically reserved for Republicans.
Using the edgy logic that Democrats are known for, couldn’t Hillary be called an age-ist for wanting the 74 year old Sanders out of the race, and why isn’t she called anti-Jewish for denying the Jewish Sanders the historic event of being the first Jewish presidential candidate?
I guess liberals think historical precedent is of value only when they choose to relate politics to race and sex, but not when religion or age are the topics. Actually, when considered historically, the 40 years that the Israelites wandered aimlessly in the wilderness is a larger point to consider than the race or sex of otherwise wealthy, comfortable people like Obama or Hillary. Our Bernie overcame the trials of his forebears and is still active in the game. Maybe he should be the Democrat standard-bearer and not the spoiled, political opportunist, Hillary, who is being investigated by the FBI for multiple legal issues.
