I never thought that Madeliene Albright was all-that-bright when she was Secretary of State. But to be candid she never spoke much. Nearly always a sour look on her face a woman who honestly I barely have a memory of ever speaking.
Some mystery is good. It allows you to think highly of people (or at least more so) until they disprove it.
This weekend in New Hampshire Ms. Albright easily erased any even neutral feelings I may have been willing to credit her past stoic ways for.
Stumping for another former Secretary of State, Albright decided to go all out in the arm twisting to sex-guilt the women vote in New Hampshire.
Telling the women at Hillary’s rally that there’s a “special place in hell for women who don’t help women” the implication was: vote for Hillary or you’re off the Island. (As if any nice normal person wants to be on an island with Hillary and Albright to begin with.)
And it’s especially ironic that it’s being said in support of Hillary’s campaign. For was it not Mrs. Clinton who stood by while her husband continually cheated on her? Was it not Mrs. Clinton who stood by while he raped women? Was it not Mrs. Clinton who stood by him as he physically assaulted them–biting and tearing their faces until he had finished his sexual acts against them?
Was it not Hillary who stood by and then executed payback against the very women her cheating, abusive, rapist husband did his actions against?
Did she help those women? Is there a special place in hell for her?
While I was pondering the offensive ploy Hillary/Albright were implementing this weekend I also found myself on a documentary shoot.
Over the course of three and half hours on Sunday I shot the stories of no less than five women.
These women had all found themselves experiencing crisis pregnancies in recent days.
Their stories were all so similar.
Unexpectedly pregnant. Scared. And visiting Planned Parenthood clinics they came away saying “the people in that place were awful in how they treated me.”
Then all of them had found their way–via different paths–to a Crisis Pregnancy Center. This place is headed by my friend Debbie (a woman) who heads a staff (of mostly women,) who make it a sincere calling of their lives to help the women come through their doors.
They do ultrasounds, they offer lots of counseling, support, and readiness–BEFORE the baby arrives. They then continue with supplies, support, life skills training, parenting classes, post pardem assistance, spiritual support, encouragement and friendship for long after the birth of the child.
In Hillary and Albright’s minds the “women helping women” in this narrative would clearly be the awful monsters at Planned Parenthood.
Likewise they would argue that because my friend Debbie and her staff (many of whom volunteer their time) are as much pro-unborn-women as they are pro-angry-oxygenarian women that they have a “special place in hell” waiting for them.
Not surprisingly it appears that Secretary Albright is as bad a theologian as she is feminist, or world figure. From a Biblical perspective Jesus spoke about a “special place in hell” of sorts when it came to those who would willfully harm children.
He argued it would be better for such to have a 2000lb millstone chained to their neck and dropped into the ocean.
Sounds hellish to me…
The truth is Ms. Albright and Ms. Clinton only care about women who will advance their own agenda. And if you fall outside those parameters they wish you dead.
Or in Hillary’s cases, raped, assaulted and facially disfigured…
