Feminist Icon Germaine Greer: Hillary Clinton Gives Me The Creeps
When a male reporter rips into Hillary Clinton, he is accused by the Clintonistas of being sexist. I've written several essays exposing the hypocrisy, veniality and corruption of the First Lady and the response has been very illuminating. More than a few emails questioned my liberal and feminist credentials, but none has questioned the veracity of my charges leveled against the senator from New York.
Therefore, I was very pleased when I read this article about how much the feminist icon, Germaine Greer, despises Hillary Clinton:
"She (Germaine Greer) was scathing of Senator Clinton, who is battling for the Democratic nomination in the US presidential race.
'I can't see that Hillary would appeal to feminists because why is she there?
'She is there because she is Bill's wife, and it's a bit useless to pretend, 'Oh, it's because of her wonderful job as a senator', and all that,' she said.
'I just don't think it's true. When she had a big job in government, she blew it.'
Greer, who said she knew the Clintons, believes the couple shares a business partnership rather than an emotional relationship."
Quotation from News.Com.Au Greer's statement sounds like a paraphrase from one of my essays. I've been saying all along that Hillary is not a self-made woman; she owes everything to her husband. We should teach our daughters to model themselves after women who have attained responsible positions through hard work and merit, and not by marriage.
Hillary's only assignment of note during her White House days was her health plan initiative, and Greer is right she "blew it" big time. What a crock it is that Hillary is running on her so-called experience. The Clinton White House pastry chef has as much experience as Hillary Clinton.
Greer says that Hillary gives her the creeps. Amen sister, I could not have said it better myself.
