According to Breitbart, Pharrell Williams – the singer of one of the most obnoxious songs ever composed – says that, “If all the women in this nation decided to vote and support the first female candidate, there’d be nothing to worry about. It’s that easy.”
Sure. It’s that easy once you turn off your brain, conscious and very soul. Which Pharrell seems to have done.
“Has she been dishonest about things?” He asked. “Sure. Have you? She don’t lie no more than any other politician does.”
What a ringing endorsement.
Equally ridiculous is Pharrell’s insinuation that Hillary’s highest qualification for president is her gender: that we need to “save the nation” by not electing another “destructive” male president.
So here’s my very valid question: Has he ever met actual women?
Women can be just as destructive as men since we can be just as selfish as men, choosing our own personal interests over, let’s say, the lives of American citizens in Benghazi or the safety of our national secrets or the mental health of a traumatized, 12-year-old rape victim.
Sure, you can argue that Hitler, Stalin, Genghis Khan and Nero were all men. And they were all horrible. But so were British Queens Mary and Elizabeth, who tortured and slaughtered Christians who didn’t agree with their exact ideologies.
(Yes, Elizabeth was horrible too. Don’t believe the whole PR campaign she inspired.)
Then there was Isabella I of Spain, who presided over the inquisition, where people were subjected to the most disgusting torments possible.
So don’t go telling me that women can’t be destructive. Because we can be when given enough power. Just like men.
That’s the real problem: enough power. The more of it people of either gender get, the more we’re likely to abuse it. It’s human nature to be tempted by power, and it’s a rare person who can handle it honorably.
Hillary Clinton already has a ton of it. And she’s already made a career of abusing it.
Don’t we think that, female or not, she’s had enough?
