Carly Fiorina made a Buzzfeed video. Yes, you should stop reading here. Snarly made her way to Buzzfeed – or the other way around – to riff on the way women often get treated in the workplace. Which is a good idea because an automaton reading cue cards can really make you feel sorry for human beings, you know?
The clip is especially poignant considering that at any time Carly could *sneeze* or *cough* oops and her iris cannons leave wisps of smoke where the actors once stood. But also because of this: How DARE it. How dare the
CARLYTRON go and kiss Satan’s butt.
Carly is funny, engaging, and smart—but she used that power for evil. She walked into a young, modern, progressive venue, and threw her own womanhood under the bus in an effort to pander to a base that will never vote for her.
Carly The Powerful threw her womanhood under our bus and, therefore, evil. That’s how you write about politics, folks. This thing that liberals keep mewling about, women being treated like second-class citizens, is a matter of propaganda and not reality. The only person who’d want to bring it up would have to be a pandering politician
Fiorina has defined herself as a businesswoman, CEO, and force to be reckoned with; she should not have to—and should never (NEVER)—have to play into the hands of liberals who work every day to manufacture divides in our society.
History informs us here. Did Martin Luther King Jr. play into the hands of liberals? Did he try to come off as soft and weak? Did he want to divide our country with rhetoric and politics? Or did he fix a sneer on his face, and cowboy up?
This isn’t effective outreach; it’s Stockholm Syndrome.
Fuck those whiners. King soldiered on, without complaint. Which I’m pretty sure is why he got shot (can’t be too careful with the quiet ones). And all those noiseless people in the shadows, what you call ‘background’? We call that ‘leadership’.
As Professor Jacobson once said with regards to conservative candidates going on shows like Letterman, that exposure comes with a price.
This is what happens when you wander onto our internet. See also: Breitbart, Powerline, etc.
