Does Biden Eat Boiled Babies?

It’s another blow against women. A woman journalist, by name of Katha Pollitt, has explained, in The Nation, that she would vote for Joe Biden, even if he murdered babies, boiled them and ate them. Seriously, do you expect anyone to take that seriously? And do you expect anyone to want to go out and hire a feminist? With her rhetorical extremism Pollit has set back the cause pretends to defend.

For the record, here is Pollitt’s rhetorical abomination:

I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them. He wasn’t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important. Four more years of Trump will replace what remains of our democracy with unchecked rule by kleptocrats, fascists, religious fanatics, gun nuts, and know-nothings. The environment? Education? Public health? The rights of voters, workers, immigrants, people of color, and yes, women? Forget them. And not just for the next four years: A Trump victory will lock down the courts for decades. I cannot believe that a rational person can grasp the disaster that is Donald Trump and withhold their support from Biden because of Tara Reade.

Now that people across the twitterverse have called her out for being deranged and stupid, Pollit has defended herself by saying that she was making a joke. Thereby, she might have inadvertently lent credence to the late Christopher Hitchens’ theory that women do not know how to tell jokes. If it's not funny, it's not a joke. It's a moment of insight into a deranged mind.

Presumably, Pollitt wants to show how strongly she feels about it all. In our therapy-addled age, expressing impotent rage makes you feel virtuous. Even if you declare yourself capable of voting for a baby-killing cannibal. It’s not a problem, Pollitt avers, because, four more years of Republican rule will threaten abortion rights.

Now, she does not quite say abortion rights. She spends most of her article disputing the claims that Joe Biden sexually assaults women. In truth, for those who have eyes that see, Biden’s ugly habit of thrusting his nose in women’s and girls’ hair during public ceremonies should have shown, first, that he has a hair sniffing fetish, and second, that he likes simulating rape in public.

So, Pollitt does not say abortion rights, but by her warped feminist thinking, the only issue that matters to women is abortion. Now, some people consider abortion, especially the late term abortion that feminists defend to the death, to be baby killing. So, Pollitt is telling us that she would vote for an abortionist, a Kevin Gosnell, because anything is better than Donald Trump.

Then again, the overriding necessity to protect abortion rights was the rationale that feminists trotted out when they defended their favorite sexual harasser and rapist: that would be Bill Clinton. In defending Clinton they were telling the world that you can do anything you want to a woman. If you support abortion all will be forgiven. Don’t think for a minute that the message was lost on Harvey Weinstein and Co.

Those feminists who womanned the barricades to defend Bill Clinton, presumably to preserve the political viability of Hillary Clinton, are not in a good position to accuse Trump of anything. And they are certainly not in a good position to command respect for their minds. Are you more or less likely to respect the mind of a woman who engages in maniacal rants… and who pretends that they are comic relief. 

Besides, as a sidelight, if Clinton had been removed from office, he would have been replaced by one Al Gore. Do you really believe that a President Gore would have threatened abortion rights. If he would not have, what exactly were the bands of deranged feminists defending when they supported Bill Clinton and HIllary Clinton, and now, Joe Biden.

In truth, such rants set back women. They make women appear to be deranged and hysterical, prey to their emotions, incapable of rational thought. Wouldn’t women be more respected for their professional achievements if they sounded like Michael Flynn’s highly impressive lawyer, Sidney Powell, and not by feminist ranters like Katha Pollitt.

Speaking of maniacal feminist furies, women who lose complete control, even to the point of calling for mass murder, consider the case of Washington Post columnist, Jennifer Rubin. Putting on her Storm Trooper hat, the mentally challenged and emotionally unbalanced Rubin called for the extermination of all Republicans, first by social shunning, a notable Storm Trooper tactic, and then by incineration, as in Holocaust.

Consider this, from a year ago, from Real Clear Politics:

Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin said Sunday on MSNBC's "AM Joy" that the only way to purge the GOP of Donald Trump supporters is to "burn down the Republican Party" with "no survivors."

"What we should be doing is shunning these people. Shunning, shaming these people is a statement of moral indignation that these people are not fit for polite society."

“I think it’s absolutely abhorrent that any institution of higher learning, any news organization, or any entertainment organization that has a news outlet would hire these people," said Rubin.

"It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose," said Rubin. "We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again."

No survivors. And, think about it, Rubin is still writing for the Washington Post. She might not be able to think. She may have yielded to irrationality. She might be mimicking the tactics that Nazi Germany used against Jews. But she still has a gig at the Wash Post.

And also insight into the world she lives in, which would think that was a joke

IS anyone surprised by this? It's the Left being the Left. Anything and anyone not Left ist VERBOTEN!!! As for the WaPoo, I despise, detest, and distrust the WaPoo, and the NYT, CNN and the rest of the TV "news" opinionators.

First, in my defense, I am not a kleptocrat.

I’ve used the “it is nobody’s business except the woman and her doctor, men have no standing” line to get laid in many big cities and university towns. Works well. We even did it in teams with one of us playing the villain. Virtue signaling is a hypnotic trigger for leftist girls. I never used it on Katha Pollitt because she a fatty and an uggo.

"...that he likes simulating rape in public"

I don't really understand this claim. If sniffing a woman's hair in the intrusive manner Biden is known for is rape, then he's guilty of actual rape, not simulated. On the other hand, if the conventional definition of rape is in play, wouldn't that require him to demonstrate some rather more "hard core" behaviors?
