It's not misogyny to point out
Kamala Harris' many failings…
men and women alike
should be fearful if she
But it's her indefensible
policies that should really concern women.
...is terrified by the prospect of Kamala Harris becoming the US' first female president.
Jezebel, at least - the
bible of corporate feminists and identity politics enthusiasts with
two X chromosomes.
Yet the possibility of Biden stepping aside to hand Harris control is hardly a 'conspiracy theory'...
Many other establishment pundits have made no secret of their desire to see the old white neoliberal centrist step aside so a comparatively young mixed-race neoliberal centrist can take his place, and the candidate herself has been caught in a Freudian slip referring to the coming "Harris-Biden administration."
The Manosphere's crime, then, is seeing 'Kamala's technocracy', ushered in under the cover of a rapidly sundowning Biden, as a negative.
While this faction of internet misogynists represents only a tiny sliver of Harris detractors, Jezebel's pearl-clutching outburst is part of what is sure to be a multi-pronged effort to tar all opposition to a Harris presidency as an outgrowth of this woman-hating swamp, whose tentacles have somehow managed to infect even the hapless progressives who think they're opposing Harris for her policies.
Poor things! Radicalized and they don't even know it...!
Those policies, it must be said, merit fierce opposition.
A Biden-Harris administration will have Americans locked down and masked up as soon as possible in the name of quashing Covid-19, even though the evidence that such draconian measures actually stop the spread of the novel coronavirus is flimsy at best (and one recent study suggested they actually make it worse).
They have vowed to return to Barack Obama's policy of supporting terrorists masquerading as 'pro-democracy' forces in Syria while continuing Trump's execrable support for Israel's human rights abuses.
Harris campaigned on her record as California Attorney General, a record riddled with prosecutorial misconduct, suppression of exonerating evidence, and outright sadism,
If anything, it's her policies that are misogynist, not her detractors.
She was so unpopular as a candidate, she dropped out before the primaries even started - yet we're supposed to believe only woman-haters are disturbed by the idea she'll be president someday?
This tired old tactic of using protected characteristics to deflect criticism from a loathsome candidate has been deployed by the Democratic Party for the last decade to varying degrees of success.
In the eyes of the establishment, those who recoiled at 2016's warmongering sociopath Hillary Clinton were motivated by misogyny, and voters who balked at Barack Obama's 'drone lives matter' foreign policy were racist.
That Jezebel and its ilk aren't also hammering at Harris detractors for also being racist, is testament to the low regard in which the black community holds her.
The notion that Harris represents the "sisterhood" and women must unite behind her against the bogeyman of internet misogyny is ludicrous given her record and the havoc she would wreak as commander-in-chief.
Should Biden fall and Harris take over as president, it will be one small step forward for one woman, and a giant leap backward for womankind...
