Nancy Pelosi Is No Feminist

Nancy Pelosi is no feminist.  Despite how much liberals and self proclaimed “progressives” will elevate her and celebrate her, Pelosi is a traitor to the cause of feminism.

Pelosi showed the world that she and the old guard of the democratic party are agents of the patriarchy when she encouraged Katie Hill to resign.

Katie Hill, a bi-sexual congressperson, resigned recently because of a wave of online bullying from the right wing.  Hill is going through a divorce and her ex-husband has been posting revenge porn in a series of nude pictures of Katie Hill which have been making their rounds on the internet.

Her ex posted these photos to get back at Hill for sleeping with someone else. In addition to the photos, Hill had an affair with one of her female staffers.  Democrats and Republicans alike are calling this an abuse of power, and Democrats and Republicans alike hyper scrutinized her and bullied her into resigning.

Pelosi was one of these bullies.

Pelosi said that Hill is doing the right thing by resigning, because “We must ensure a climate of integrity and dignity in the congress.”

This is coming from someone who still regularly meets with Bill Clinton.

Hill did technichally violate ethics rules by having an affair with a staffer, yet we have a wave, some would call it an epidemic, of republican men who have affairs and ignore subpoenas, but instead of going after them Pelosi shames a member of her own party into resigning based on some outdated tropes about sex!?  The rules against having affairs with staffers is outdated garbage. You can’t control people’s sexualities with arbitrary rules. People in close quarters (dorms, offices etc) end up fucking, DEAL WITH IT! I could care less who and how congress people fuck as long as it’s consensual.

What kind of feminist enables slut shaming and sex negativity?  What kind of feminsit enables revenge porn? What kind of feminist refuses to stand with a bi-sexual woman being bullied out of her job?  What kind of feminist enables patriarchal forces by refusing to go after the estranged ex husband who is posting nude pictures WITHOUT CONSENT!?

No kind of feminist, that is who.

By asking Hill to resign Pelosi did two things: 1. Perpetuated the sex negative cultural norms that are inherent in our society, norms that are intent on controlling womens sexualities.  2. Pelosi demonstrated that liberals are selective with their solidarity and lack an intersectional lens when it comes to fighting oppression.

Our society’s out dated sexual tropes and fear of sex exist only to control women, period.  What we have here is a case of slut shaming, and what is worse is Pelosi, a so called feminist, is enabling it!

A true feminist would never tolerate an act of revenge porn, nor would they ever turn their back on a queer person being bullied, nor would they ever enable slut shaming.

Pelosi literally did all three.

What I find especially infuriating is the idiotic loyalty so many liberal “feminists” have to her.  They think she is some sort of beacon of hope to women because she occasionally gets snidy with Donald Trump.  Well, she at least does that when she isn’t giving him a standing ovation at his speeches.

Pelosi was one of the people to applaud Donald Trump’s state of the union when he said, “America will never be socialist.”  Call me nearsighted if you must, but I think anyone who applauds Donald Trump, a rapist, at any point should have their feminist cards revoked.

Liberals need to stop “yas Queen”-ing Pelosi.  Pelosi is not standing up for feminism and she never will.  Pelosi would rather protect her crappy, unpopular party from scandal than stand in solidarity with one of the most oppressed identities in her party.  That is one of the most infuriating things and one of the things demonstrating how out of touch Pelosi is, there is no actual scandal here. Most people don’t give a crap who politicians sleep with anymore as long as it is consensual.  She didn’t call for Bill Clinton to resign in 1998, why is she encouraging Hill to resign?

I do not care that Hill took naked photos, it’s 2019, we all have smartphones, if you haven’t taken at least one naked photo then i feel sorry for you.  Live more!

Further, Hill engaged in a consensual affair to escape a loveless, abusive marriage.  I see no scandal in that. So long as we have a president who is a rapist, and facing accusations of raping teenagers with Jeffery Epstein I might add, then I see no scandal in anything Hill did.  I see a scandal in how the democratic party handled the situation.

It doesn’t matter if you love Pelosi, it cannot be denied that by encouraging Hill’s resignation Pelsoi perpetuated and defended the sexist cultural constructs and institutions which perpetuate the patriarchy.  By not standing with Hill Pelosi has revealed how liberal “feminists” are selective in their solidarity.

You cannot call yourself a feminist if you protect the same institutions that enable patriarchy. By enabling slut-shaming, revenge porn, and refusing to stand in solidarity with a bullied bi-sexual woman, Pelosi has protected patriarchy.

Nancy Pelosi is not a feminist, period.  Liberals need to pick better heroes.

Impeachment, The Right Thing To Do Being Done For The Wrong Reasons

Donald Trump is an embezzler, fraud, national security threat, and a rapist.

Multiple women have accused him of harassment and sexual assault, including his own ex-wife and a thirteen year old victim of Jeffery Epstein.

In 2016 multiple contractors hired by Trump have shown than Donald Trump never paid them for their labor.

Let us not forget the crime against humanity that is happening at the US-Mexico border and in the concentration camps.

He has also fired multiple cabinet members for petty, personal reasons, compromising the federal government by denying agencies proper leadership.

Pelosi and liberals scoffed at the idea of impeachment for the majority of Trump’s first term despite all of this. Impeachment was argued to be “impractical,” or worse their was this naive faith that the Mueller Report would find something punishable in Trump’s 2016 conduct.

Yet when it comes to light that Donald Trump attempted to smear Joe Biden, the undemocratically self selected candidate being forced down our throats by the capitalist liberal establishment, suddenly liberals are up in arms.

Or at least they want us to think they are.

Peter Daou, the former Clinton surrogate who has become enlightened and gone #toofarleft, tweeted that what we are seeing is a “botched impeachment.” There is little to no evidence being gathered from these proceedings and the odds of any criminal convictions coming from it become slimmer and slimmer with each fruitless testimony.

Despite the record of crimes against humanity and sexual assault, Trump will most likely suffer zero consequences from impeachment. What is worse is that Daou is probably correct, Trump will be able to tote his acquittal in the 2020 race as a victory, a victory practically being handed to him by Nancy Pelosi.

Impeachment is the right thing to do to stop Donald Trump, but it is being done for the wrong reasons, and by doing it for the wrong reasons Pelosi and the Democrats are giving Trump free fodder because they will lose the impeachment.

Trump would have a much harder time explaining himself for why he tortures migrant children or why an Epstein victim is accusing him of rape. Anyone can explain away digging up dirt on the Bidens though.

I support impeachment, but I am not holding my breath that anything good will come from this one. I want to see impeachment happen so that women and migrant children can have justice, not so the Biden’s are protected.

Impeachment is supposed to at least inconvenience Donald Trump, but the bastard seems to be doing just fine.

Peter Daou is right. This impeachment is botched.

Impeach the Bastard

I am no fool. I am well aware that getting rid of Trump will not get rid of the system and culture that put him into office.

That said, if we can stonewall the bastard in any way, I say do it. An impeachment proceeding would be an almost insurmountable inconvenience.

For people like Nancy Pelosi to discourage impeachment because of a fear of what might happen is the epitome of cognitive dissonance. To impeach Trump would mean challenging the world view that the opposition can be negotiated and worked with. This has not been the case in American politics since the era of Johnson and it never will be the case for our system again.

Whether you are a socialist like me, a dedicated pro Pelosi liberal, a centrist who wants everyone to stop yelling, or a republican paving the way for Trump’s fascism, it cannot be denied that American politics is polarized.

To not do anything because of a lack of bipartisan support is what a comedian would call a “failure to read the room.” The truth is that nothing, I repeat NOTHING, will ever have bipartisan support again until Donald Trump is no longer the president. So long as the president is polarizing, so shall politics of the nation be.

Hell, even vaccines and healthcare are a hot issue. One can’t even pass a bill saying “you need to give your kids their shots,” without some kind of a public temper tantrum. To expect anything like that to not happen when confronting a literal fascist president is moronic.

Either Nancy Pelosi is out of touch with the real world, or she doesn’t want to do anything that might affect her place of power. It is probably a combination of both.

The point is if we have a chance to get rid of the fascist son of a bitch, if we have the chance to distract his white supremacist presidency from passing policy, if we can put them on the defensive instead of the offensive, why the fuck shouldn’t we!?

Like I said, I know impeachment will not magically make the country less sexist or racist, but it will put a damper on a racist, sexist oligarch’s plans to destroy our planet. That may not be the answer to all our problems, but for fuck sakes! It is better than doing nothing!

The Professional Protester Episode 47 Do Not YAAS QUEEN Pelosi

I would like to remind my followers that Pelosi clapped, unironically, when Trump said America will never be socialist.

I would also like to remind you all that her voting record has been one of international interventionism, she prevented previous sessions of congress from censuring or impeaching George W Bush, and she has also enabled mass incarceration and deportation.

Nancy Pelosi is trash.
