It’s not like we need yet another example of how universities have turned into bastions of stupidity. But here we go again.
Robin Lakoff is a professor of linguistics at UC Berkley and she’s crying and whining about Hillary Clinton’s mistreatment by mean, evil men. In fact, Time Magazine actually felt the need to publish her bit of tripe on their website.
Robin is in high dudgeon over the FBI reopening the investigation into Hillary’s private email server. It is her belief (based on zero evidence) that the only reason Hillary Clinton’s “emailgate” is a thing is because Hillary has girl parts.
This is nothing but a “bitch hunt.”
Oh, boo hoo.
Cry me a friggin river.
Lakoff claims that Hillary is only saddled with this because she is guilty of SWF or “Speaking While Female.”
Though, in Hillary’s case SWF stands for Shrieking While Female.
But that’s just me picking nits.
Robin asserts that no man would ever get into trouble for setting up a secret server, transmitting classified information to and from it, deleting emails after they have been subpoenaed, then lying about it under oath.
Robin is certain no man would ever find himself investigated by the FBI for mishandling classified information.
You’d think a professor at UC Berkley would have heard of David Patraeus.
Lakoff claims that all this hubbub boils down to women not possessing freedom of speech.
If that were true, Robin, Time Magazine wouldn’t have permitted you to vomit up your insipid column all over their website, now would they?
What does Freedom of Speech have to do with bypassing FOIA, compromising national security, mishandling government documents and then lying about it?
And why the hell is Robin Lakoff permitted to teach at a university?!
Robin’s problem is twofold.
First, she an idiot.
Second, she has no earthly clue what she’s talking about.
You see, Robin actually claims that Hillary did nothing illegal, and men (and apparently only men) are just pretending she did something illegal to infringe on her Freedom of Speech.
Sorry. I have to stop until the uncontrollable laughter subsides.
Hillary did nothing illegal, Robin?
Section 793, subsection (f) of the Espionage Act states:
Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
Hillary’s secret server was not the “proper place of custody” for the documents she and her staff were sending and receiving.
Classified information – including highly top secret information – was found on this server.
In other words, Hillary Clinton broke the law.
But poor little Robin wants to pretend that Hillary’s only “crime” is being a woman.
Speaking as a woman, I find this laughably moronic.
Robin wants us to believe that Hillary is being held to a different standard.
In that, she is correct.
But not in the way she intended.
Hillary isn’t being judged differently because she is a woman.
She is being judged differently because she is a Democrat. And more importantly, a Clinton.
If a Republican candidate had done what Hillary has done, he or she would have had to drop out of the race the minute the story broke.
The hue and cry that would erupt from the Enslaved Press would have been deafening.
Senators like Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid and Diane Feinstein would be shrieking for that Republican candidate’s head on a pike.
He or she would be labeled “unfit for office” by every pundit, politician and hair-brained university linguistics professor in the country.
Criminal charges would no doubt have been levied, and whoever that Republican was would be facing jail time.
The only reason Hillary Rodham Clinton was not driven out of this race in shame is because she is Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Robin Lakoff’s own virulent hatred for men is clouding what little judgment she possesses.
And the fact that Time didn’t hesitate to put this screed on their website only proves this rag has lost all credibility.
