Desperate times call for desperate measures.
During a campaign event Thursday afternoon in Ohio, Hillary Clinton compared her Republican presidential opponents to terrorists by saying they essentially treat women the same way.
"Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world, but it's a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States. Yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back," she said.
That's weird. I don't remember Republican presidential candidates (especially female Carly Fiorina), or Republicans in general, doing any of the following:
-mutilating the genitals of women
-raping women repeatedly
-raping young girls and passing them around as ISIS fighters do
-forcing women to watch their children be crucified
-forcing women into carrying out suicide bombings
-cutting off the noses and slicing the faces of women
-using women as human shields in war
-shooting girls in the head for daring to proclaim women have a right to an education
-banning women from driving
-banning women from voting
-stoning women to death for "committing adultery" after they've been raped
-banning women from walking outside of the house without a male relative
-forcing women into arranged marriages where they are beaten and abused
-killing women in the name of "family honor"
-selling women into sex slavery
I guess to a liberal like Hillary Clinton, being anti-abortion is much worse that how ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Taliban or the Iranians treat women. If only women had access to abortion, then sex slavery and having no human rights wouldn't be so bad.
We shouldn't be surprised at her comments considering Clinton is the country's most infamous enabler of powerful and abusive men. Not to mention her time at the State Department, where sexual abuse scandals were covered up or ignored. I detail Clinton's failure to women in my book Assault and Flattery.
Clinton's statement just further proves how out of touch she really is with the plight of women around the world. What an asinine thing to say, not because it's offensive to Republicans, but because it belittles the horrifying experiences women face each and every day.
