’Misogyny keeps away women from running for office’, says Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton has criticized what she calls a ’heavily misogynistic’ atmosphere online which has seen female candidates not stand in the general election. Clinton spoke at Swansea University on Friday. She said social media culture was serving the ’amplification of hatred’ which led to the ’political assassination’ of Labour MP Jo Cox. She also referred to President Trump as a ’24/7 bully’.

Will you please just shut up and go away. I'm sure you have a lot of suicides to plan.

Hillary people don't hate you because you're a woman. They hate you because you're a corrupt, evil, sociopath. The fact that you're a woman actually means they go easier on you in the media. However, if there *is* an idea that women can't do the job, you, Theresa May, Angela Merkel and Nicola Sturgeon are the causes of it.

Considering the kind of comments I see about literally everyone in politics, I have a hard time believing it's only or predominantly the women who are being threatened.

Right, it's only *misogyny* that is keeping women from (insert career choice here). As opposed to women being self-directed agents making free choices to pursue other interests and pursuing activities that they have prioritized on their own.

Did she realize that she couldn't get elected in the USA, so she's trying to work herself into a future UK election?

Democrats sure do have a knack for stirring up foriegn influence in elections, be they ours or other countries. Just last month Obama was doing his best to influence the Canadian election.

Throwback to when Hillary let a younger staffer go and paid for her silence to protect a sexual assault perpetrator on her campaign staff

This is so delusional. Literally no one cares about your chromosomes. We only care about your policies.

I'm pretty sure people vote along party lines. I highly doubt all the Republicans will vote Democrat if the Republican nominee was a woman.

Hmmm guess she hasn't learned what went wrong in 2016. Keep on blaming your problems on things that aren't the actual underlying cause. She must be perfect, therefore her shortcomings must be external.
