Warning: Mild Language
This is awesome. Failed presidential candidate and former Sec. of State John Kerry is being attacked by far-left progressives after he compared President Donald J. Trump to a "teenage girl" over the weekend. Sec. Kerry, they assert, is being sexist and misogynistic in his comparison.
On Friday night, Sec. Kerry appeared on "Real Time with Bill Maher" to discuss the current administration. After several moments he dove into the heart of his argument, "I don’t want to get into a real riff on this but I’ve got to tell you...He really is the rare combination of an 8-year-old boy—he’s got the maturity of an 8-year-old boy with the insecurity of a teenage girl.”
Of course, the Massachusetts "statesman" committed a grave sin amongst the left -- he used cisgender terms that could in some ways be construed as offensive to describe a human being. This rankled progressives' hearts and unleashed a torrent of f-bombs and insults from Slate writers and Twitter users everywhere.
"F*ck this misogynistic bullshit. Seriously. I’d rather have a random teenage girl serve as president than Trump," Slate writer Mark Joseph Stern boldly declared via Twitter.
He then followed it up by saying, "The world uses teenage girls as a punching bag. We deride their interests and mock their emotions because it makes us feel smart and mature. F*ck that. They deserve better than relentless condescension. We’re failing them."
Matthew Segal, an ACLU attorney, went even further claiming that if anything teenagers should have the right to vote. "Trumpism is a reason to let teenagers vote, not to insult them," Segal opined.
Consider this for a moment. Sec. Kerry is quite literally galavanting around the world to meet with Iranian officials to undermine President Trump's foreign policy. He is meeting with America's enemies in order to defeat our president. One would think the left would love this "resistance leader" who is willing to arguably violate the Logan Act and commit what George Bluth Sr. might describe as "light treason." But instead, hundreds of leftist Twitter users including writers with fairly large platforms are attacking Sec. Kerry for his comparison. Once again, we see that the Left have become the new Puritans. Only instead of rigid rules and guidelines for a society based on the Bible and hard work, it seems they have replaced societal expectations with ever-changing parameters of political correctness and victimhood. For Democrats on the far-left, the terms are simple: Agree with the progressives or be eaten by your own.
