A New York Times reporter on Monday asked Bernie Sanders whether it was sexist for him to remain in the presidential race against Hillary Clinton. Sanders responded by asking whether it was a serious question and saying that the question implies that any woman that runs is by definition the best candidate.
Bernie at the very least deserves respect because although his views are completely misguided, he believes in what he says and honestly hopes for a better country. However he has just gotten a taste of the liberal lunacy that has been plaguing the nation for decades, where everyone who opposes the leftist agenda is a racist, sexist, homophobe, bigot, or Hitler. Hillary Clinton had already experienced this with Barack Obama when she was destroyed by the liberal elite because they were so desperate to put a black man in the White House. However now that she has the favorable victim status, she has no problem winning against an old white straight man.
It is sad that qualifications for a President today are based on whether you can be the first black man, woman, gay, transgender, or whatever else elected rather than judging people by actual merits. The SJWs have been placing unqualified candidates everywhere from movies to videogames, jobs to schools, making sure that there was a “first” minority to do this or that everywhere, which somehow qualified the person to be in his/her/its position. Now this affirmative action process has made it to the one job that matters more than anything. At last, the presidency itself has become a form of welfare, where we give the position to those we feel deserve it merely because of some perceived injustice that affected the particular group at one point in history.
We have to wonder though; does the New York Times also see it as anti-Semitic that Clinton is running against Sanders? Or is being Jewish not a good enough victim class anymore?
