Oh boy. I mean, this is Rep. Joe Crowley of New York, a member of the House Democratic leadership, not some lunatic back-bencher.
Someone has to take a stand against these kinds of attacks, which are ultimately demeaning toward women. If criticizing a woman is, ipso facto, sexist, then you are essentially saying that women can’t play the game and take the hits.
I similarly heard CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter say the other day that some believe President Trump’s suggestion that Rep. Maxine Waters has a low IQ is racist. That’s not racist. Waters’ apparent paucity of intelligence, as demonstrated by her calling for Trump’s impeachment since before he could even have committed any impeachable offenses – and certainly before any had been shown to be true – has nothing to do with the color of her skin. It has to do with the content of her character.
Democrats want to use race and gender as shields against criticism. Ultimately, it’s a tactic at least as divisive as anything they accuse Donald Trump of.
Joe Crowley must be some kind of idiot.
