It never stops, does it? It never stops

Garychapellhill liveblogging the RBC:

a young man in his 20’s commented on the protesters outside. He said they were a “bunch of middle aged women trying to prove a point, although I don’t know if they have one”. I told him that I’m sure they have a point and that his attitude was obnoxious, then he accused me of causing a rift in the party!

Once you license misogyny against Hillary, you license it against all women--and that would be your mother, or your daughter, or your girlfriend, or your wife.... Et cetera.

How is this good?

How is it progressive?

How can anyone who sees how the Obama campaign leverages it vote for him?

Because it's not going to stop. It's going to get worse.

i've been referring to corrente as the misogyny-free zone, but it's more than that, you've been actively pushing back against the misogyny at every turn, for which you have my undying and heartfelt appreciation. thanks.

rushing off to buy hamster food now, because you are correct, it never stops.

also, your wit really is the envy of rapiers everywhere, for which i also thank you!

I think that must be something you have to give up if you give in to the HOPE.

...and also found myself with the uncontrollable urge to buy more hamster food ;)

"He said they were a “bunch of middle aged women trying to prove a point, although I don’t know if they have one”."

Lambert, this sh!t is outta control. Just about every other caller to Maddow et al. is spewing this misogynist crap. The erstwhile AAR fratboy, Cenk Uygur has been equally execrable viz "stupid Hillary supporters." I checked in with that show on Tues and found Uygur practically screaming about Sen. Clinton's op-ed about why she is staying in the race. In response to this passage (Sen. Clinton):

I am running for all those women in their 90s who've told me they were born before women could vote, and they want to live to see a woman in the White House. For all the women who are energized for the first time, and voting for the first time. For the little girls - and little boys - whose parents lift them onto their shoulders at our rallies, and whisper in their ears, "See, you can be anything you want to be." As the first female candidate in this position, I believe I have a responsibility to finish this race.

Cenk screamed (paraphrasing):

"I'm running so that your kids can grow up to be big, fat cheaters, too!"

And proceeded to rail about how Clinton has used the "threat" of her "women supporters" abandoning Obama to "shield herself" from attacks.

Jeebus. So much for "we're all wearing the blue dress now," eh?

A bunch of 20 something kids in their Amerbercrombie & Fitch shirts beating on middle aged Mothers.
Not a pretty sight at all.

Or, yourself. Because not everyone you're addressing is male.
