Female Democrats: Criticism Of Secretary Rice Over Benghazi Is Sexist

susan_rice

Like clock work, when Democrats face criticism, they respond by accusing the critic of being racist. Or, in this instance, sexist:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A dozen female members of the House staunchly defended U.N. ambassador Susan Rice against Republican criticism over her remarks on the deadly Sept. 11 Libya attack, suggesting the GOP lawmakers’ comments were racist and sexist.

“It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities,” Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the next chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told reporters Friday at a Capitol Hill news conference.

Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham earlier this week called Rice untrustworthy and unqualified to be the nation’s top diplomat if President Barack Obama chooses her to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The two vowed to block any Senate confirmation if she is nominated.

This is such a charade, nor does this do much to advance the cause of feminism.

If you’re a woman who believes that women are the equivalent of men, then you can’t go hiding behind your gender every time you’re criticized. You can’t say “I’m a woman and I’m equal” and then say “You can’t criticize me, I’m a woman” when you face a little push back.

Susan Rice is being touted as the next Secretary of State, replacing Hillary Clinton. But if Susan Rice can’t take some criticism from some Senators, she’s not ready to be Secretary of State.

    “First of all, there is an FBI investigation, which is ongoing, and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. But putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in Benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo—almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video.

    What we think then transpired in Benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. They came with heavy weapons, which, unfortunately, are readily available in post-revolutionary Libya, and that escalated into a much more violent episode.” -Susan Rice, 9-16-12, on “Meet the Press”

    • JustRuss

      Are we really rehashing this again? The government knew within HOURS that there was never any protest in Benghazi to escalate. It was a planned terrorist attack. If Susan Rice was just the mouth, reading the words prepared for her, then she is not smart enough to be Sec of State. If she knew what she was lying about then she shouldn’t be at the UN either.

      • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

        That’s a lot of horsesh@t. The truth is that Patreaus even had said it was the protest or the film prior to the protestors being eliminated. Nothing yet has determined the film did not motivate the terrorists, but evidence shows the film motivated the terrorists.

        By the time Rice was reporting there were mix messages, but nothing was confirmed.

        The attacks on Rice are partisan cheap shots. She was just doing her job as instructed and based on the intelligence at the time.

        Anything else?

          • fedupny

            I did that Snarkie Arbuckle, tongue in cheek. I know and you know that there is no way to win that argument. He made the mistake of trying to defend himself, instead of his statement about the voters. Yet as I see you are certain that his remarks are racist, without knowing the demographics of that Maine town. I have not seen any fact finding done by the media to prove or disprove his statement, only that his statements are racist. Why?

            I reserve my opinion of whether those statements are racist or not, on the facts, of which, you obviously don’t need or want.

            Just as this story above, where the media completely ignores the similar statements of Senator Ayotte against Rice, yet for some reason there are separate “motivations” for saying the same things. The woman Senator is conveniently left out for the impact of the narrative.

        Kosovo Prime Minister owns Harem with 52 slaves

        This is more fruit of the failed US policy in the Balkans and Kosovo: a Muslim Prime Minister who lives like a sultan from the Middle Ages, enjoying a harem full of the sex slaves that are allowed by the Qur’an (4:3) and Islamic law. The American people were told in the 1990s that we were fighting for freedom and self-determination in the Balkans. All we really did was help set up a jihadist state in the heart of Europe.
        This is the template for a “Palestinian” terror state. “Kosovo and the Palestinian Authority are both triumphs of terrorism, victories by racist nationalists whose aim has always been religious and ethnic cleansing, who have nevertheless managed to portray the countries they have torn to shreds as racist nationalists practicing ethnic cleansing.” So said William Walker, retired U.S. Foreign Service officer and former ambassador (more here).

    The devil using the name “Bill Ayers”..

    In 1974 Ayers co-authored — along with Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and Celia Sojourn — a
    book titled Prairie Fire:
    The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism. This book contained the
    following statements:

    “We are a guerrilla organization. We are communist women and men … deeply
    affected by the historic events of our time in the struggle against U.S.
    imperialism.”

    “Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure
    on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the
    people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside.”

    “The only path to the final defeat of imperialism and the building of
    socialism is revolutionary war.”

    “Revolutionary war will be complicated and protracted. It includes mass
    struggle and clandestine struggle, peaceful and violent, political and economic,
    cultural and military, where all forms are developed in harmony with the armed
    struggle.”

    “Without mass struggle there can be no revolution.
    Without armed
    struggle there can be no victory.”

    “We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give
    coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society.”

    “Our job is to tap the discontent seething in many sectors of the
    population, to find allies everywhere people are hungry or angry, to mobilize
    poor and working people against imperialism.”

    “Socialism is the total opposite of capitalism/imperialism. It is the
    rejection of empire and white supremacy. Socialism is the violent overthrow of
    the bourgeoisie, the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and
    the eradication of the social system based on profit.”

      I had hoped that now that Obama has a final 4 years, and nothing can give him more time, that opposition to his agenda would no longer be called racist. He’s got 4 years now, so can we please get off the “if you disagree it must be because he’s black” meme?

      I don’t care, and most don’t care, that Rice is female or black. Only that the government lied to us and she was the talking head that did it for them.

    As I read these comments, I keep wondering where all of the bitter anger comes from. I cannot believe that Susan Rice, or any person, deserves this kind of vitriol. Or why so bitterly criticize Heidi Heitkamp because she hasn’t commented on an issue that she has no official say in yet? The U.N. is not going to take away our guns, for christ’s sake – all this is just delusional, and it’s not helping us get our ideas across. It appears that so many people just want to be angry – but why? We lost the election rather badly – we didn’t gain the presidency, and we lost ground in both the house and senate. Even Allen West lost his election in Florida. So it seems to we me need to figure out how to gain the support of more people in this country. And online viciousness will never convince anyone to change sides. Can anyone suggest how we can move forward in a positive manner rather than in a hateful manner?

    Back then, I was part of a liberal minority with hopes and dreams of permanent change; yet, any legitimate or objectively measurable change seemed distant and unobtainable. I, along with many of you, were not aware that it was already surreptitiously happening slowly, quietly, and insidiously below the surface of the mainstream social strata that I was gradually embracing as my early career was underway. As I became a working taxpayer and then a parent, I noticed even less the subtle transformations our social and moral fabric was undergoing while I moved from left to center and ultimately to the right. Things just seemed to be progressing normally and steadily. Our country never seemed in domestic danger.

    Now I am part of the conservative minority, aging, becoming more irrelevant by the day as our land continues to implement the changes and transformations that have been in the works for a half a century or more. Like a distant unseen aging relative, I am astonished by the wear and seeming grotesque change in the manner of things American.
