Hillary needs her man and a fish needs a bicycle

The great feminist seems to need her husband's help, but then the rest of the feminists are busy calling out Israel on inequality of women.

A few days ago Hillary Clinton announced that she’s bringing out her “secret weapon” to help get her to the White House.

That’s Bill Clinton, of course, a father of the Oslo disaster and who has already begun campaigning for his wife, Hillary the feminist.

A feminist needs help?

All along, ever since the 1970s when women began burning their unmentionables on the march for “equality,” we thought it was over for us guys.

We thought, in fact we were told that apart from taking out the garbage, we were totally unnecessary.

So except for the TV remote, we surrendered. We’ll do the dishes.

Gloria Steinem, founder of Ms. Magazine, is still remembered for popularizing Irina Dunn’s complete take down of all men with this damning message: “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.” So apparently fish do need bicycles and women do need men.

At least so it goes for Hillary who forgot Helen Reddy and the feminist anthem: “I am woman. Hear me roar.” Instead, she’s whimpering.

Isn’t this a sign of weakness? The movement insists that a woman can carry the same weight as a man. Women can serve on the front lines. Women can lug a 400-pound fire hose up 40 flights and don’t need men to make babies. So we’ve been taught.

Seems to me that a woman should not need help running for president. She ought to be able to stand on her own two feet, yes, like Trump.

How many Clintons does Trump have to beat? Ought to be just one at a time.

Golda did it on her own and so did Thatcher.

So where are the feminists? We hear none of them roaring that Hillary, their champion, has betrayed their cause.

We don’t hear the obvious, that by admitting that she can’t do it alone, Hillary has reversed decades of feminist ideology and progress.

Singlehandedly, she’s ruined the feminine mystique.

Or am I the only one to notice that because of Hillary, hard-core feminism is dead, or dying? Yes, Hillary Clinton killed the feminist movement.

Hillary mopped the floor with her sisters.

She’s admitted defeat as a strong woman, that’s one, and as a desirable candidate, that’s two strikes.

Yes I said “girls” because a movement that refuses to denounce female suffering and genital mutilation in Muslim countries deserves no respect.
But she can’t be counted out, first because Liberals don’t care about corruption so long as it’s a Democrat doing it to us.

Second because Liberals have imported millions of undocumented Democrats who will be rushing to the polls along with legally documented migrants.

Even if they can’t speak or read English they will know where X marks the spot.

Third, feminism began dying almost from the day it got started when the sisters searched the world for inequality and found it in Israel, the only country in the entire Middle East where women have equal rights – but that never stopped the girls from condemning Israel at every turn.

Yes I said “girls” because a movement that refuses to denounce female suffering and genital mutilation in Muslim countries deserves no respect.

That goes for Hillary double. She’s their standard-bearer. Yes there is a War on Women, but not around here, but rather in those countries where women are enslaved and brutalized and from which, it’s been alleged, she has taken in millions for her foundation.

Has she ever spoken up like a true feminist, namely Ayaan Hirsi Ali? There’s a woman who speaks with intelligence and truth.

That’s one reason she’s not running for president. That kind seldom makes the cut. Hillary, a liar, does.

As a candidate, she is so unappealing that she had no choice except to reach out for her husband.

Otherwise husbands are useless, until there’s a mouse in the house.

Even Hillary’s poodle Bernie Sanders is beating her in some polls. She needs all the help she can get.

Apparently it’s true what I wrote earlier, that there are no feminists on a sinking ship.
