We’ve seen this act back in 2008, where any criticism of Hillary was treated at sexism, even if it came from reliable leftist news sources. Well, it’s back with a bang. Or, is that a bark?

(The Hill) Women serving in the Senate say Hillary Clinton is being subjected to an unfair, sexist double standard on the campaign trail.
Criticisms of Clinton’s tone of voice have become prominent in recent weeks, stirring strong feelings among Senate Democratic women who say they too have had to battle the stereotype of the shrill female.
“She’s often judged by a double standard,” said Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), the dean of the Senate women.
“Many of we women feel that there’s a double standard. What’s being said about Hillary is what women have heard for centuries. You’re too loud, you’re too aggressive, you’re too pushy. Why do you want the vote?”
But, um, she is shrill. She is loud. She cackle’s. She laughs at inappropriate times. As for being too aggressive and pushy? I haven’t heard that one before.
Wanting the vote? It’s now sexist to ask why she wants people to vote for her? That’s a new one. And rather disturbing.
Female lawmakers were particularly galled by recent statements by Washington Post columnist Bob Woodward, one of the nation’s most respected journalists, characterizing Clinton’s tone as “screaming.”
“She shouts. There’s something unrelaxed about the way she is communicating,” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
She does shout. And, here’s something to consider, which will surely be deemed sexist: if women like Hillary, Mikulski, and the other mentioned in the story want to be treated equally, don’t want to be called delicate hothouse flowers, to say they are empowered, they need to be able to roll with the blows and suck it up, rather than devolving into whiners.
Of course, really, this is all about creating a situation where any criticism of Hillary is deemed to be sexist, because, let’s face it, she has a lot of issues, which will be right in your face if she wins the primary. Benghazi, her home-brew server and all the secret information contained on it. Her lack of successes while Secretary of State.
This is much like when any criticism of Obama was deemed to be racist. Voting “present” for almost half the votes while in the Illinois general assembly? Racist. Wearing mom jeans? Racist. Not allowing him to eat his waffle? Racist. And Hillary will be the nominee, no matter how much Democrats feel the Bern, because the game is rigged via the super-delegates.
Oh, and don’t forget, if you dare ask Hillary why she wants to be President, that’s sexist.
