Author : I am insane
CNN gathered a panel of experts to discuss whether or not the photo of Barack Obamas head speech writer, Jon Favreau, he’s the one groping Senators Clintons breast while the other Obama campaign staffer held her hair while holding a beer bottle to her face was sexist.
The CNN experts on sexism were Wolf Blitzer James Carville and a Mitt Romney spokesman.
The expert, James Carville, determined that this was funny, just boys being boys, only a cardboard cut out of young frat boys pulling off a prank and anyone who got upset about it was insane. The other experts laughingly agreed. End of discussion.
Where do I ( insane woman) begin?
Perhaps with are you Kidding me CNN?
Your experts have no educated qualifications to speak on sexism and they have NO experience to speak about sexism directed towards women by virtue of the fact that they are MEN. In all honesty it appears the CNN experts only qualifications and experience with sexism is… they perpetrate it.
A picture of
A cardboard cut out of a woman having her breast groped and a beer bottle in her face while having her hair held by 2 MEN is hardly laughable.
The insane ones would be the ones who believe it is funny and a is a prank.
I ask CNN to gather a panel of experts. WOMAN who have had their faces broken by a beer bottle much like the one in the picture. Pranks that started with the thought this is funny. Too many women have been in this position.
Are we too sensitive to racism and not sensitive enough to sexism?
What if we take that same photo but instead of Senator Clinton it is Barack Obama with the same “boys” on either side Jon groping his crotch while the other holds a noose instead of a beer bottle?
Would that be laughable? It is still “only a cardboard” image of Obama. Would that be called a prank? Boys being Boys?
They would be yelling their heads off. James Carville and Wolf Blitzer and every talking head out there. Rightfully so.
They would have figured out instantly the Obama cardboard cut out photo sought to degrade, humiliate, intended to cause physical harm and stir more than unpleasant memories for many. But they couldn’t make the same connection to Senator Clintons cardboard cut out photo.
Sad truly sad and James Carville has the audacity to call me and the millions of us who are bothered by this…..Insane.
What was insane was CNNs panel of experts laughing and making light of a serious issue, abuse of women.
CNN needs to apologise for being so incentive to those who have suffered the abuse that began with the same thoughts of their expert panel “this is funny.”
I am suggesting a boycott of CNN and its advertisers.
James Carville..well he needs therapy and should be fired with Wolf Blitzer.
Jon Favreau needs to be fired and Barack Obama needs to be the one that says NO you Can’t.
The media needs to address this photo and call it what it is a sexist attack on a woman.
