Who could forget the 1995 Beijing Women’s Conference spear-headed by First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and then Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala? It was a remarkable idea, gathering women from all over the world to discuss issues that mattered to them: abuse, abortion, education, gender equality, you know … “women’s issues.” And who could forget famously red-hatted former U.S. Congresswoman Bella Abzug raising her hands to the sky in worship to the Goddess Gaia? What better place to declare homage to a female god than at a conference on “women’s issues?” All women, on earth and in heaven. How divine.
One of the profound truths that came from this conference was the declaration that there were not just two genders, but five: male, female, mostly male and some female, mostly female and some male and … I can’t remember the fifth, but whoever you are, please step forward.
The tent featuring lesbian lovemaking techniques was a special favorite of the Western feminists: Canadian, American and …did I mention the First Lady and her cohort Donna Shalala were in charge?
This was the first term of the co-presidents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and they were off to a rollicking start. The Mrs. President had already organized a compendium to begin the process of moving America’s healthcare to one, big, happy government plan. It was an odd thing, watching an unelected wife assume powers she had not been granted. A blatant attempt to move to socialism was unnerving enough, but it was her raw ambition that was most frightening.
She was the dutiful disciple of a ’60s revolutionary named Saul Alinsky. She had studied him, met with him, written her college thesis on him. And actually, as people became aware of this connection, that college paper was locked away from public viewing. A simple reading of his “Rules for Radicals” might tell you why.
Alinsky was known as the “father of modern American radicalism.” He was seeking a “bloodless revolution,” an overturning of all that was American—in a non-violent, ruthless sort of way.
