Gloria Steinem, the ghost of Feminism Past, on Mrs. Clinton as victim and political savior. Political Cynic comments

 

Ms. Steinem leads with 14 years of Gallup Polls, more about the art of Public Relations than about any substantive issue  of ‘Leadership’ or being a champion of ‘Women’s Rights’! The inconvenient historical record of the Clinton Team, you don’t get one without the other:

Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_Responsibility_and_Work_Opportunity_Act

Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violent_Crime_Control_and_Law_Enforcement_Act

Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gramm%E2%80%93Leach%E2%80%93Bliley_Act

The Clinton record is one of a war against the poor, and especially poor women, its inspiration was purely Reaganite! No matter Ms. Steinem potted history, or just call it a made to measure apologetic, near the November 8 election.Though Ms. Steinem does construct a narrative that seems to hew, not to historical accuracy, but to the demands of propaganda, the headline is :Clinton has been swiftboated by Trump and his acolytes

The blatant corruption of the apparatus of the Democratic Party, as revealed in Wikileaks e mails, remains outside of the essay, or just call a Press Release from Party Headquarters. That explores the myth of Hillary as the victim of a pervasive misogyny, and in the case of Trump that misogyny is real.

Mrs. Clinton’s record is clear: domestically she is a Neo-Liberal and on Foreign Policy she is a Neo-Conservative. The future of a Clinton presidency: a further erosion of the Welfare State, in answer to Robber Capital enabled by the Clinton ‘Financial Reform’, and War with Russia and China, not to speak of the expansion of The War on Terror. Our own 30 Years War! Huntington’s  ‘Clash’ as the basis for America Foreign Policy, for at least another generation.This is the promise of Mrs. Clinton’s ‘Feminism’ and ‘Progressivism’ !
