Suzanne Venker: A crass Trump presidency is far better than a feminist Hillary one


Married American moms are in a pickle. Later this year they will have to choose for president either a corrupt feminist or a crass and arrogant newbie. This decision is heightened by the fact that the new president will name at least one new Supreme Court justice.

I concede that it’s tempting to abstain from voting — I considered it — but don’t. That says you don’t care if Hillary wins.

And you should. As William McGurn notes in “The Case for Donald Trump,” the mere idea of a President Hillary Rodham Clinton should be enough to make anyone vote for Trump. It’s true: a feminist presidency would be far worse than a Trump presidency.

There are many reasons not to vote for Trump. “Yes, Mr. Trump elevates insult over argument,” writes McGurn. “Yes, he is vague and contradictory about the details of his own proposals. And yes, he often speaks aloud before thinking things through. It’s all fair game.”

Nevertheless, I need Trump. I need him to keep Hillary out of the Oval Office.

So do you.

Donald Trump is many things, but he is not against you. He is not anti-men, anti-marriage or anti-motherhood. A feminist presidency would be all of these things.

A feminist presidency means living in a country that couldn’t care less about married mothers or their husbands and sons. Of course, your daughters will get plenty of attention. But what kind of attention? And at what cost?

Feminists hate America as it is today and as it always has been. They believe women in the Western world are oppressed and therefore need a complete restructuring to make life fair for women.

One of ways in which women suffer (and men do not) is that they’re saddled with pregnancy. The answer to this “problem” is to make abortion at any stage as widely available as possible. They want your daughter to believe this is right and just—and they want you, the taxpayer, to fund it.

Another example of female oppression is that women are expected to take care of their own children! And that gets in the way of creating more female CEOs. Feminists remedy this injustice by pushing mothers into the workforce and demanding the government provide universal daycare for its babies. Again, at taxpayer expense.

Finally, the needs of your husbands and sons will be totally ignored. To the extent that males get the short shrift — in schools, in courts, or even in the workplace — is simply the price they must pay for years of patriarchal rule.

To sum up: feminists want to dismantle the American family.

Think I’m exaggerating? In her 1977 tax-funded book, Sex Bias in the U.S. Code, chief feminist Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the concept of the nuclear family — with a husband as main breadwinner and a wife as main caregiver—“must be eliminated.”

A feminist presidency simply means you and your family won’t matter. Secular feminist progressives are focused exclusively on single women, single moms and the LBGT community. (Why do you think 70 per cent of unmarried women voted for Obama?) Those Americans do not depend on a husband; thus, they increase the flow of taxpayer-paid incentives that ensure their dependence on government — and their allegiance to the Democratic Party.

I realize Trump leaves much to be desired. And no, he isn’t the pillar of a family man, what with his siring five children by three different wives. But I don’t know any more than you do what happened with his first two marriages, and the man is clearly surrounded by sons and daughters who think the world of him — so he must be doing something right.

Either which way, Trump’s unconventional family is far more impressive than Hillary’s bogus and volatile marriage to Bill Clinton, who’s no less corrupt than her.

If I still haven’t convinced you to vote for Trump to save us from Hillary, I will leave you with this. As distasteful as Trump is, he wouldn’t know how to be politically correct if you paid him a million buck —which is saying something considering his penchant for making money.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s politically correct, tell-people-what-they-want-to-hear-to-make-herself-sound-good behaviour will cause absolutely, unquestionably death. In November 2015, Hillary wrote this: “Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”

Remember that when you pull the lever.
