Michelle Obama recently scolded women who voted for Donald Trump. “As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against her own voice”. She defined voice as “believing in our authentic self”.
If I was a woman, I’d be insulted on several levels. She is saying that women should ignore their beliefs and vote for someone simply because of gender. She appears to be saying women are unable to find their authentic selves unless a woman is president.
This, in a microcosm, shows how the Democratic Party is off track. The women’s movement was about empowering women. Now Democrats are telling women (and minorities) they are powerless and need a benevolent government to protect them from evil Republicans.
Congressional Democrats are at their lowest ebb in almost a century. Amazingly, the party is sticking to the same script that caused their decline.
