Perhaps you think Democrats are the most outraged by President Trump, but even they can't sink as low as feminists can. Yes, feminists are Democrats, too. But they're in a category all their own, as Lisa Bloom, the feminist attorney who's responsible for bringing down Bill O'Reilly, proved in spades at the press conference about Kathy Griffin's choice to pose with a bloodied, decapitated mock-up of Trump's head.
That stunt was no comedic gaffe. It was an orchestrated and deliberate attempt to destroy a president who left-wing women like Griffin and Bloom believe is a misogynist and thus poses a greater risk to the country than the Islamic State.
If you're shaking your head in awe that the person who made such a colossal error in judgment, as Griffin herself admits (never mind that her attorney subsequently upends this apology by insisting Griffin should be able to create any "art" she wants and thus did nothing wrong), could somehow turn out to be the victim, you don't understand the feminist mind.
Perhaps the country is finally waking up to the enormity of this very powerful and vocal group's hatred of men. Specifically, Republican white men. But really, any man will do if feminists think the shoe fits.
Bloom and Griffin honestly believe that since Trump and his family called Griffin out for her actions that Trump is now the perpetrator and Griffin is the victim.
How is that even possible? Simple. Kathy Griffin is a woman. And in the United States, women can do no wrong. Even when they actually do wrong and admit as much, in the end it's still a man's fault. "I've dealt with white guys trying to keep me down my entire career," Griffin said.
Bloom's defense of Griffin's antics underscores the impetus for the stunt: "This was clearly a parody of Trump's own sexist remarks, taken to an extreme, absurdist visual," referring to Trump's interview last year with Megyn Kelly, in which Trump said Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her ... wherever."
Griffin then attempted to explain that what she did pales in comparison to what Trump said during the 2016 election. "I go town to town with my dick jokes and try to make people laugh. I didn't grab anyone's you know what." (For the record, neither did Trump. But to a feminist, a man saying something derogatory about a woman is the same as doing it.)
This entire debacle is about revenge against men who feminists are convinced want to hold women back. That's exactly what Bloom said at the beginning of the conference: that Griffin "never forgot" Trump's sexist remarks toward Megyn Kelly.
Men who make sexist remarks must be punished — and Lisa Bloom, along with her mother, Gloria Allred, are right there to dole it out. They consider themselves the voice of women who are too weak to stand up to such men. In response to the hate mail Bloom has received for defending Griffin, Bloom highlighted an image on her Twitter page that read: "The Devil whispered in my ear, 'You're not strong enough to withstand the storm.' Today I whispered in the Devil's ear, 'I am the storm.'"
Well, she's certainly right about that: Feminists are the storm. They can take something for which they are 100 percent responsible and create a virtual hurricane. And at the eye of the storm there is always a man.
"It is Trump who should apologize for his ‘blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever' disgusting comment, which he has never done, and for being the most woman-hating, tyrannical president in U.S. history," says Bloom.
Feminists will stop at nothing — their hatred of men who runs too deep. It consumes them. "Kathy is not going to stop speaking out for women," emotes Bloom. "We will both continue to use our skills to resist Trump. His misogyny knows no bounds."
