Today, Glenn Beck offers up a fresh anti-feminist diatribe – mocking Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi’s looks and noting how “hot” Sarah Palin is.
Here are some excerpts from the above audio:
“Sarah Palin looks really hot in that hot…And, in a completely unrelated note, Hillary Clinton looks tired.”
“Oh, yea sure she [Hillary Clinton] looks professional, Sarah Palin looks hot in the hat. Seriously.”
“She could have been elected wearing the hat. Guys would have been like ‘Honey, what are you talking about, I didn’t even notice the hat on her. What. No. She’s just brilliant. She just said that she doesn’t know how cars work. Oh, that’s crazy. Did you see the hat on her…I’m reading policy positions and I don’t read them for the pictures…hey, honey, try the hat on. You wear the hat for a while.’”
“I wonder what Nancy Pelosi would look like in that hat. Has she had…Has anybody noticed that Nancy Pelosi…Has she had serious plastic surgery? Either that, or she is a Disney auto-animatronic.”
Treating women in this manner is sexist and disrespectful. It minimizes professional accomplishments or lack thereof and instead advances the sexist notion that a woman’s looks are legitimate grounds for professional criticism.
