On the far sidelines of Friday’s Today Show an estimated 100-150 Hillary Clinton supporters expressed their voices, “carrying signs” to protest the media’s misogynist treatment of her. What a dedicated, resourceful crowd, brought together by pro-Hillary bloggers from NYC and North Carolina, spearheaded by Murray and KittyNC respectively.
The event’s press release contained quotes of some of the unconscious commentator clips from the YouTube video in my April 10, 2008 post. I have the press release and was going share some of those slurs here, but as I began typing them in, I lost the desire to repeat them, and send them out into the Universe one more time. Maybe another day. You can watch the video and catch them all.
I’m coming around to this: If there’s nothing glaring, I’m going to switch my focus, at least I’m going to try. Yes, I’m a stickler for fairness. But I think it’s more important, and healthier too, as so many great bloggers do, to promote Hillary’s accomplishments, platforms, and programs than it is to be a media victim. I did say “nothing glaring,” AND I will try to accentuate the positive.
On the other hand, I’m a child of the sixties and practice both seemingly contradictory yogas: I will never stop protesting. I will always want to make love not war.
