The same Hopium addled addicts who demand we join the celestial choir and forget the race-baiting, and gay-bashing, and woman hating, primary and general election campaigns of Barack Obama now demand investigations digging into the tortured past.
The Craigslist Killer, alledgedly a Boston University medical school student with a wide Obama-esque grin, was arrested by police as he drove with his future wife.
Big Media and police mistakenly blame gambling as the motivator for the killer’s repeated attacks on women “lured to Boston hotels through ads they posted on Craigslist“. While the guilt or innocence of the Craigslist Killer will be determined by a jury of his peers we do know that the motivation is related to a hatred of women, however disguised.
We saw that hatred of women repeatedly expressed by Barack Obama and his supporters during the primary campaigns last year and we still see it every day on PINO Big Blogs.

By now most sentient beings acknowledge that rape in most cases is about power not about sex. Since the days of Jack The Ripper most sentient beings acknowledge that sexism and misogyny can be expressed in lurid ways. Yet there is a strange disconnect between this intellectual understanding of sexism and misogyny and everyday, commonsense understandings of sexism and misogyny.
If an African-American is attacked because they are African-Americans the Democratic left “intellectuals” quickly shout “hate crime”. But a woman who is attacked because she is a woman is viewed as a gambling debt casualty, “asking for it”, “corrective“, in the wrong place at the wrong time, “complicated”, or some other excuse to avoid the ugly truth – sexism and misogyny kill.
Hillary Clinton supporters were especially disgusted with the excuses constructed by those we once respected in the Democratic Left. Most disgusting of all was the New Yorker’s Hendrick Hertzberg.
Democratic Left male writers such as Hendrik Hertzberg at the New Yorker belittled the struggles of women (not to mention African-American women) in comparison to African-Americans and ignored the testimony of people, women, such as Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm. Hertzberg wrote Competitions among grievances do not ennoble, and both Clinton and Obama strove to avoid one; but it does not belittle the oppressions of gender to suggest that in America the oppressions of race have cut deeper.
Males like Hertzberg, once respected by us as deeper thinkers than they proved to be, “belittle the oppressions of gender” with their gimmick of ignoring rape and battered women, including the supposedly loved wives battered by their husbands (or girlfriend/boyfriend violence). Struggles for the still NOT ratified Equal Rights Amendment do not enter into the Hertzberg equation. The struggles to get the right to vote, the right to “male” jobs, the right to serve fully in the most prestigious levels of the military, the everyday indignities of losing jobs to less qualified males – all are ignored.
Hertzberg and his fratboy friends pose as sophisticated “intellectuals” and up-to-date-with-it liberals with ostentatious support for the black guy as they “belittle the oppressions of gender”.
We took our cue from the long dead trailblazer African-American Congresswomen (notice how many powerful black women supported and continue to support Hillary? Maybe Chisholm’s statement explains why) Shirley Chisholm:
Shirley Chisholm, who should know, said she was discriminated more on the basis of being a woman than on the basis of being black. Shirley Chisholm was a true Democrat. Shirley Chisholm would not fit in today’s Dimocratic Party.
“I ran because somebody had to do it first. I ran because most people thought the country was not ready for a Black candidate, not ready for a woman candidate. Someday–it was time in 1972 to make that someday come.”
She also knew the challenges of being a woman in politics.
“I’ve always met more discrimination being a woman than being Black,” she said. “When I ran for the Congress, when I ran for president, I met more discrimination as a woman than for being Black. Men are men.”
African-American Congresswoman Chisholm and her eyewitness, first hand experiences were dismissed by the Democratic Left.
Hertzberg thinks that “in America the oppressions of race have cut deeper“. Shirley Chishold disagrees. Hillary Supporters disagree. Big Blog males agree because they too exclude from the equation every day violence against women, the everyday indignities and sufferings of oppression based on the shape of the skin.

PINO Big Blogs and the “intellectuals” who are nothing less than misogyny deniers will bask in the politically correct and very acceptable, as well as profitable, assaults on the ugliness of racism. However the PINO Big Blogs and Dimocrats only care about sexism and misogyny when it fills their pockets (for example NARAL and the abortion red flag wavers) or when it takes place in another country and it is safe for them to denounce.
The Taliban flogging a girl will be denounced with an air of superiority.
Blowing up a girls school in Pakistan will be denounced with an air of superiority
Hamid Karzi of Afghanistan and the rape law will be denounced with an air of superiority. Even Hillary Clinton is allowed to denounce sexism and misogyny, without being attacked as a shrill and bitter cackling woman, because the sexism and misogyny are taking place in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan’s president, Hamid Karzai, came under intense western pressure yesterday to scrap a new law that the UN said legalised rape within marriage and severely limited the rights of women.
At a conference on Afghanistan in The Hague, Scandinavian foreign ministers publicly challenged the Afghan leader to respond to a report on the new law in yesterday’s Guardian, and the US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, was reported to have confronted Karzai on the issue in a private meeting. [snip]
The Guardian reported that Karzai had signed the controversial law last month. The text has not yet been published but the UN, human rights activists and some Afghan MPs said it included clauses stipulating that women cannot refuse to have sex with their husbands, and can only seek work, education or visit the doctor with their husbands’ permission…
The Democratic Left in America will pretend to be upset when men attack women who protest against discrimination – if it is in Afghanistan.
But if the sexism and misogyny takes place in America the Democratic Left will remain silent (unless the sexism and misogyny comes from Republicans – then there is profit to be made).
Crime statistics which tally the daily beatings and rapes and killings against women will not be considered by the Democratic Left and “intellectuals” like Hertzberg in their “grievance” competition. They are not interested in “gonadal politics“. These boys are safe when the woman bashing and the gay bashing take place.
John Lennon sang the words that Shirley Chisholm lived. In his song (which we can’t spell out because computer search engines will flag any use of racist language in a website and brand the website as “racist” – insults against women however are not flagged and the website is not categorized as sexist) Lennon wrote “Woman is the slave to the slave. The title of the song came from Lennon’s wife and partner.”
He was hoping to show how women were and still are being treated.
The song lambasts the perceived traditional role of woman’s subservience to man across all cultures. It was banned from radio airplay because of the word ‘n*gger’, though it was played on WHRW-FM, and many prominent blacks, including black comedian Dick Gregory, spoke out in defense of the song.
If Lennon would have written that song in 2008 he would have been branded a “rascist” by the Hopium addled. The Democratic Left would have denounced Lennon as a secret Hillary supporter filling the airwaves with coded messages.

The Craigslist Killer will get his day in court.
There will be an investigation of torture which will eventually devour Obama hires.
And we will never forget the sexism and misogyny exploited by the Democratic Left and Barack Obama.
