Hit and Misogyny

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, hillary, misogyny, comey, election

While today's cartoon might appear to be a clear example of blatant misogyny, it is actually "meta" misogyny which celebrates and empowers women by ironically mocking those who would mischaracterize misogyny for their own political benefit. Like this bitch, for instance.

Again, "meta" misogyny in the service of humor! Jon Swift (the author of the seminal work on politics, "Gullible's Travails") would totally be high-fiving us about now.

The (ahem) "news" story, if you were lucky enough to have missed it, is that Hillary Clinton has returned from 40 years of God-ordained wandering in the wilderness, fasting and having religious visions, to face the cold hard facts about her election loss. And according to Hillary, those facts are that the Russians magically hacked the election, FBI Director James Comey was a suicide bomber, and everybody in America - including women - hates women.

"Certainly misogyny played a role," the bitter, garishly-dressed, stringy-haired old woman whined, "That just has to be admitted."

Well, no, it doesn't have to be admitted. There are female leaders all over the world, and countless women in positions of authority - including governmental authority - here in the United States. So it seems likely that Hillary's unpopularity isn't so much linked to her gender as it is tied to her long history of being a horrible human being, serial liar, inept politician, rape enabler, and thief.

All of which might become clear to Hillary if, instead of looking for answers in a "glass ceiling," she looked for them in a mirror.


Meanwhile, as the clock ticks on Syria, Russia, Iran, and North Korea...

Hillary misread the text. It said "Glass sealing".

Jim Irre said...

The wicked witch of the Ozarks will never get it. It will always be everyone elses fault but hers. Why anyone would ever take an apple from the old hag again would be a mystery to me. Except, of course, to ridicule the living shit out of her!

Granny said...

I wonder what her speaking fees are now?

Dr. Strangelove said...

However, her books are selling well now, on a new app called "Kindling."

Rod said...

This is one of your best.

Fred Ciampi said...

Well stated Stilt. And you laid it on the line with no sarcasm or satire. Of course, once in a while The Hildabeast (I just can't bring myself to spew out "Hillary") needs to be put in her place. And I think the proper place for her would be in Guantanamo.

And those Tomahawk missiles, my favorite. 30 years ago, I worked for a company that built components for them. Nice to see that they are still very effective.

Now I think I'll plant my garden. Mmmmmmm fresh veggies..............

idahobob said...

You forgot one of her titles.....murderer.


Fish Out of Water said...

The more the amoral pathological, serial liar, murderess and two-time LOSER carries on like this, the more she destroys herself.

But there are the confused, like a person in the general vicinity of my house, who still has her campaign signs in the front yard, who will never ever understand.

Geoff King said...

At least the Zombie Queen has now announced she will not be running for president again in 2020. She probably realizes that she needs to appear a little less decomposed if she is to be able to campaign for her devil's spawn Chelsea.

Ed G. Mann said...

Why not a preggy giraffe tipped tomahawk missile? That gets Syria and has the additional value of pissing off all the enviro-nuts and best of all PETA.

Damn! Can you ask for more than that?

Dave Neumann said...

We don't watch TV anymore. So I missed hitlery (I refuse to capitalize any of their names). In 1961 Newton Minnow, head of the FCC, called television a "vast wasteland." I wonder what his comment would be now after watching her campaign.

Tots said...

That damn giraffe is everywhere. THE WIFE (She Who Must Be Obeyed) gets constant messages from WFAA's app that the "Giraffe Cam" is still waiting on April's baby.

Is there any way we can make that critter drop? Maybe drive her around in a golf cart or something? Sit her on an unbalanced washing machine? Show her a video of Hilarity's speeches?

Colby Muenster said...

I'm not a misogynist. I loathe Bill just as much, maybe more.

TrickyRicky said...

Maybe she should disappear to a tropical island, a la SCOAMF. Do the French still control Devil's Island? That would be the ticket.

Emmentaler Limburger said...

@Colby: But bill was our first female, black president. So you're not just misogynistic, you're RAAAAAAAAAACCCCIIIIISSSSSSST!

rickn8or said...

I'm not a misogynist either; I don't hate all women. But Hillary is at the top of my list.

Don Surber said...

Hey, Emmentaler Limburger, but Obama was our first president to ride a girl's bike.

james daily said...

Oh, my. She will do anything to stay in the news. Tomorrow, she will announce that with diet and exercise she is now able to negotiate one step. If they will take a bet in Vegas on if she will be deceased by 2019, I'll make it. Oh, Chelsea is not elgible to run for Prez in 2020. She would be 40 in March 2020. (News to gag on)

REM1875 said...

HA AHH HO HO You win

"Dr. Strangelove said...

My I-fireplace is eagerly awaiting this app.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Mike aka Proof- Hillary will have "glass sealing" when she lies in state in the Capitol rotunda. Not that she hasn't lied there before.

@Jim Irre- She thinks she is the victim of a vast right-wing, left-wing, Russo-wikileaks, FBI, male, female conspiracy. Occam's razor suggests that the likelier scenario is that she's just an asshole.

@Granny- Same as they've always been, although now she wants it in cash and tucked in her g-string.

@Dr. Strangelove- You've just made the best case for book burning that I've ever heard (grin).

@Rod- Glad you think so, though I gave up trying to rate my posts ages ago. Different strokes for different folks - I just try to attain a batting average high enough to keep people coming back.

@Fred Ciampi- I really, truly loathe that woman. And hey, nice work on those Tomahawks! I don't honestly know if Syria was to blame for the chemical attack or not (and yes, I worry about it), but I'm trying to be optimistic about the message Trump sent. At the very least, I'd hope that other countries are thinking that we shouldn't be screwed with.

@idahobob- I didn't forget, I was just trying to stay off her "kill list." And now you and I are both on it!

@Fish Out of Water- Hillary is, indeed, living in an imaginary world at this point. Sadly, there are still a lot of liberals who live there with her. And while I scoff (yes! scoff!) at the notion that misogyny held her back, I do think that much of the support she had came from brainless females who were voting their genitalia. Is it misogynist for me to state the plainly obvious?

@Geoff King- Oh, she says she won't run, but when has Hillary ever told the truth? Although it's entirely possibly that she might try to steer Chelsea into the White House the same way she steered Bill. For Hillary, power is like blood to a vampire. In no small part because she has to suck to get it.

@Ed G. Mann- I like the idea of a preggy giraffe missile. In fact, I think ALL of our implements of war should be given adorable animal identifications.

@Dave Neumann- I think it's significant (and accurate) that TV is so godawful these days that what Newton Minnow called a "vast wasteland" is now widely referred to as "The Golden Age." Yeah, we're pretty much screwed.

@Tots- The whole notion of the "giraffe cam" rather escapes me. There are multiple stories about us being on the cusp of World War III, yet "pregnant giraffe" still rates high in what people are actually interested in. And on a side note, I toast your health with a class of unprepossessing claret for your reference to "Rumpole of the Bailey."

@Colby Muenster- Exactly! This is America, where we should all have the right to hate anyone for being an asshole, whatever their race, creed, color, or sex.

@TrickyRicky- Would it be misogynist for me to suggest she be sent to a penile colony? (Answer: yes)

@Emmentaler Limburger- As I understand it, Bill Clinton was our first all-white Black President. Barry Soetoro was our first half-white Black President. That still gives us room for one non-white Black President before we eventually get an all-black Black President.

@rickn8or- I love women! And I love women in power! Hillary's loss had nothing to do with her gender, and everything to do with her maggot-ridden soul.

@Don Surber- In fairness, I'm impressed that he at least took the training wheels off long enough for a photo op.

@James Daily- I frankly hope that Hillary does regain the strength and stability to climb steps. Because there are no gallows on the ground floor.

Regarding Chelsea's actual age, I think we need to ask Webb Hubbell.

@REM1875- The only "Hard Choices" regarding Hillary's book are fireplace or bonfire.

Shelly said...

For the life of me, I do not understand why the left wing continues to trot this vile witch out and attempt to make her relevant. They should be pissed that she squandered her greatest opportunity to grab that ring, as well as the down ballot destruction she caused. I guess it's the same reason the MSM continues their usual tactics despite being thoroughly embarrassed by the election of Trump. I guess none of them have any shame or brains, for that matter.

txGreg said...

@Emmentaler Limburger,

Are you also a listener of the Larry Elder Show? Or was I alone in reading your comment and hearing his voice?

John the Econ said...

As I've been repeating for months now: "Want more Trump? Because this is how you get more Trump"

Yeah, Democrats. Just keep repeating to yourselves that the only reason Hillary lost is because she's a woman. And not just any woman, but the 6th most beautiful woman in the world. Keep telling yourselves that instead of the fact that most of the "popular" vote she got wasn't because she was Hillary Clinton, but because she wasn't Donald Trump. Hopefully enough of your mass delusion will stick for most of you to keep your jobs. Well, most anyway.

Other current events: Could it be that Sweden will re-think mass immigration?

SWEDEN’S prime minister vowed his country would “never go back” to the days of mass immigration after it emerged the Stockholm attacker was a failed asylum seeker.

John the Econ said...

@Geoff King, oh please, let it be "I don't care about money because I've already got $15-million in the bank" Chelsea, the ultimate white privilege poster child. Where do I send my check to the "draft Chelsea" movement?

@Shelly, I think the answer to your question is that there's a vast industry of both monetary and intellectual graft built up around the Clintons. Literally, high-paying jobs are at stake for people that legitimate private industry has very little use for.

Colby Muenster said...


You, sir, have crossed the line this time! Do not, I repeat, DO NOT EVER use the words "g-string" in a post that also contains the word "Hillary!"

And I know of a third use for her book. Take it camping for when you run out of toilet tissue.

But seriously, folks... She won't be running in 2020. It'll be more like a waddle behind her walker, whilst sucking on her oxygen bottle.

Clearly not being a misogynist; I voted for Melania. The Donald is a bonus.

pgm1972 said...

"It's unclear what Clinton meant when she said people don't yet understand the full scope of WikiLeaks' impact when it released stolen documents from Democratic officials including her campaign chairman John Podesta, but Clinton did seem to hint that more will be brought to light when the book she is writing gets published."

In other words:

If you wanna know what I ain't teillin'
Gotta wait and buy it when it's sellin'!

rickn8or said...

pgm1972, cut her some slack; she's not getting paid much for her speeches anymore.

Graylady said...

Stilt, re your reply to Mike aka proof, the only reason Hillary Clinton should be allowed a "lying in state" under the Capital dome, is so everyone could make sure the witch was really dead.

Rod said...

I once visited to Lenin's tomb in Red Square before he lost a lot of stature in non-Soviet Russia. Had a local Russian speaking lady along as a Moscow guide which usually helps visitors through any minor difficulties with ease since they are not only translators but also skilled diplomats. As opposed to the long lines usually depicted at the tomb we were the only visitors at the time; yet we could not dwell; we had to move along very quickly and that was enforced by several guards. The old communist looked like plastic anyway. It's not well known that his body was also removed from Moscow to safe-keeping in Tyumen (Siberia) during WW2.

This similar talk about HC's demise reminded me of that & if one wants to attend her funeral or lying in state (which I can't even imagine) and maybe take a sharp stick to poke her with: It's suggested they take a grappling hook instead and make the stinking spray from that old, always lying, gas-bag go the other way.

Re John the Econ's linked article about the DNC, this:

Progressives also criticized the transition committee's initial makeup, leading the DNC to add several more members from the left's ranks.

Yeah, Demo_Rats, go ahead and let more "progressives" in. They're the ones who guaranteed Trump's win. More DNC "progressives" means more Trump. He's a bit of a disappointment to me, too (LOCK HER UP, DONALD!!) but he's still way better than any "progressive".

Since nothing else is being said here today, how about the other story dominating the news cycle:

United Airlines shows how to make a PR crisis a total disaster

Short story: Flight overbooked, and United needed 4 seats to get a crew staged at the next stop. They offered $800 and a hotel for volunteers to get bumped for a flight the following afternoon. When they found no takers, instead of upping the offer they had the computer randomly select 4 passengers who had already boarded and were seated and asked that they deplane. When one refused, they called security to actually and literally drag him off the plane. Cell phone video of man being dragged down aisle goes viral.

So what did we actually witness yesterday? A great example of "Social Justice" being substituted for simple capitalism. For whatever reason, when there were no takers at $800, instead of raising the bid to $900 or more, the agents in charge decided to get their seats in a "fair" manner by allowing a computer to randomly select the 4 passengers to be inconvenienced. Of course, it certainly didn't feel "fair" or like "justice" for the 4 people pulled from the flight, but that's the problem with "Social Justice", isn't it? Somebody ultimately gets screwed so others can be happy.

Of course, in retrospect this was all really stupid. You can't convince me that on a plane of 200 or so people that they couldn't have found a market clearing price for at least 4 people. (They might have had me at $1,500 or so - Mrs. Econ, who really wants a vacation would have made me) Clearly, the United personnel on the scene didn't want (or may not have been authorized) to offer that much. So they went the draconian route.

But in the end, the free market ultimately gets its retribution. In the wake of what happened United has suffered an incalculable PR disaster and is now the butt of jokes internationally. (Many of the memes floating about the Internet are a hoot) This morning, UAL's stock price dropped several percent, resulting in around $800,000,000 of market capitalization evaporating last I looked. Makes paying $4-or-5 thousand to buy the good graces of 4 people look kinda cheap now, doesn't it?

So next time you see a social justice warrior demand that "social justice" replace the laws of supply and demand, remember the guy who was dragged off the plane. Usually, you don't get to see the victims of such "just" policy so vividly.

Colby Muenster said...

@John the Econ,

No doubt there is considerable Monday morning quarterbacking going on at United HQ today. They could have bought Richard Branson's private jet for the four crew members for a shitload less than this fiasco is going to cost them. Hell, $800 million would damn near buy you a B2 bomber.

Granted, rules are rules, and woe be to the person who challenges them on board a commercial flight, but really? Who the hell decided it would be a good idea to drag this guy kicking and screaming out of his seat, whacking (and bloodying) his head in the process? Then, dragging him unconscious down the isle in front of 100+ cell phones taking videos, was the icing on the cake.

TMay said...

Regarding Trump, I was a little disconcerted to hear an excerpt in which someone said that all we have to do is create peace between the Sunnis and the Shi'a. I think it is such a great answer that from now on anytime anyone blames lack of peace in the world on the lack of an agreement between Israelis and Palestinians, that Netanyahu should say "Well just create peace between the Sunni and Shi'a and then get back to me."

rickn8or said...

TMay, "peace between the Sunnis and Shi'a"?? How do you think the Wahabists will feel about being left out of the process?

TMay said...

If the Sunni and the Shi'a reach peace, which they might considering that the Muslim Brotherhood deal with both (which is why they are crowned to spread the world caliphate), then Netanyahu can point to peace with the Wahabi.
