Susan Sarandon, the 70-year-old Hollywood actress who just made national headlines for saying she was glad Hillary Clinton didn’t win the election, says she’s been subjected to death threats for her political views.
My, how the Democrats hate a dissenter.
“I got from Hillary people, ‘I hope your crotch is grabbed,’ ‘I hope you’re raped,’ ” she said, the Hollywood Reporter reported. “Misogynistic attacks.”
The attacks came because she dared to oppose Clinton on the campaign trail, and instead went for Bernie Sanders.
And what’s most interesting?
The Clinton types always put themselves as the bastion of tolerance — that their Democratic leanings come because they’re the party of the people.
This, from Hillary herself, in October of 2017, to CNN: “I think sexism and misogyny are endemic in our society,” she said.
Or this, again from Hillary, a month earlier, to CBS: “I started the campaign knowing that I would have to work extra hard to make women and men feel comfortable with the idea of a woman president. It doesn’t fit into the — the stereotypes we all carry around in our head. And a lot of the sexism and misogyny was in service of these attitudes. Like, you know, ‘We really don’t want a woman commander in chief,’ ” she said.
Or this, in September 2017, to Rachel Maddow: “I ran against someone who demeaned women, degraded them, attacked them,” she said, speaking of President Donald Trump, the Advocate noted.
But here’s a good principle to put in play, going forward: Both Clinton and the Democratic Party could stand to clean their own camp first. According to Sarandon, the misogynist roots run deep on the left, in the supposed arena of the women-loving.
