Evidently the United States Ambassador to the United Nations and spokesperson for the Administration on the Benghazi debacle should be shielded from all criticism because, you know, you’re not supposed to pick on girls. That’s what the ladies in the House of Representatives are saying here.
A dozen female members of the House staunchly defended U.N. ambassador Susan Rice against Republican criticism over her remarks on the deadly Sept. 11 Libya attack, suggesting the GOP lawmakers’ comments were racist and sexist.
“It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities,” Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the next chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told reporters Friday at a Capitol Hill news conference.
The House women, a majority of them Africa-American, lashed out at McCain and Graham and demanded that they retract their criticism.
“To batter this woman because they don’t feel they have the ability to batter President Obama is something we the women are not going to stand by and watch,” said Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis.
Feminists evidently believe that women are qualified for big, important jobs but, unlike men, should be shielded from all criticism. You know, because they are the weaker sex… or something like that… I dunno.
