California college students object to “white feminist” Madeleine Albright as commencement speaker

Social Justice Warriors are such a fickle bunch.

Via Fox News: She is a liberal icon and was America’s first female secretary of state, but not everyone at a California college is thrilled that “white feminist and repeated genocide enabler” Madeleine Albright has been lined up to give next month’s commencement address.

Soon after officials at all-female Scripps College, in Claremont, Calif., announced Albright would speak to graduates, an article in the school paper derided the Czech-born diplomat for her skin color and previous policy positions, and other students posted their concerns on social media, according to The Claremont Independent.

“Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how many [people of color] we’ve had as guest commencement speakers at Scripps?” asked one student.

The 78-year-old Albright, who worked for the National Security Council during the administration of President Jimmy Carter and later taught international affairs at Georgetown University, was U.S. ambassador to the UN before being named secretary of state by then-President Bill Clinton in 1996.

“We proudly welcome Dr. Albright to Scripps College and eagerly anticipate a glimpse of the person ‘behind the position’ in her history-making role as America’s first female Secretary of State,” read the announcement from the school president’s office that touched off the controversy.

The article in The Student Life described Albright as a “white feminist and repeated genocide enabler” because she supported military intervention in the Balkans as secretary of state and did not do more to stop genocide in Rwanda during her time at the UN.

“With Madeline [sic] Albright being our commencement speaker (and a war criminal and a white feminist) I know some of our professors are refusing to be on stage,” one student wrote. “I was wondering if any of the students were planning a protest or perhaps some sort of show of disagreement with Albright and what she stands for?”

At least one student said she supported the choice of Albright for the May 14 event. “Having the opportunity to listen to Madeleine Albright speak during commencement is something graduating students, and Scripps students in general, should be appreciative of,” Olivia Wu, a member of the class of 2019, told The Claremont Independent. “Seeing negative reactions about her visit just because of her race is honestly ridiculous when considering her achievements.”

The newspaper noted that Scripps students did not object when Angela Davis, a radical-turned-academic who was on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list for murder and kidnapping—spoke on campus earlier this year.

Albright made news recently when she campaigned with Hillary Clinton and told an audience “there’s a special place in hell” for women who don’t support each other.

Women will go to hell if you don’t vote for Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton, who won last Monday’s Iowa caucus by the narrowest of margins, must be getting desperate.

According to the The New York Times, Hillary’s support among women “has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont [Bernie Sanders], and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement.”

So Hillary is now using threats and insults to win female votes.

In J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, the devilish Sauron has a spokesman called the Mouth of Sauron.

Hillary Clinton, too, has a mouthpiece.

Make that two mouthpieces: elderly feminist Gloria Steinem; and Madeleine Albright, Bill Clinton’s secretary of state and now a professor of international relations at Georgetown University and chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a D.C.-based “diplomacy” firm.

Steinem will be 82 years old this March; Albright will be 79 years old this May; Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old this October.

Madeleine Albright

NBC News reports that yesterday, February 6, during a Clinton rally in Concord, New Hampshire, Albright defended Hillary’s “progressive” and foreign policy credentials and made a plea to young women in the audience to vote for Hillary, claiming that Hillary — she who trashed the women whom her husband, Bill Clinton, had sexually assaulted — is the best candidate to defend women’s rights.

Albright admonished, “We can tell our story of how we climbed the ladder, and a lot of you younger women think it’s done. It’s not done.” Then Albright threatened American women that if they don’t vote for Hillary, “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” 

At that, as reported by the New York Times, Hillary “laughed, slowly clapped her hands and took a large sip of her beverage.”

Read that again.

Hillary Clinton laughed and clapped her hands when Madeleine Albright issued a curse to American women that “there’ll be a special place in hell” for them if they don’t vote for Hillary.

Albright, who has been stumping for Hillary in New Hampshire this weekend, also slammed Bernie Sanders for his “lack of knowledge” about foreign policy. Go to the NBC News embedded link to read more about it, if you insist.

Hey, Madeleine Albright.

Name one accomplishment of Hillary Clinton as Obama’s secretary of state.

Just one. I dare you.

Gloria Steinem is Hillary’s other mouthpiece.

On Friday, Feb. 5, in an interview with the talk show host Bill Maher, claiming that women tend to become more active in politics as they get older, Steinem suggested younger women were just backing Bernie Sanders so that they could meet men. The supposedly pro-women feminist said:

“When you’re young, you’re thinking, ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie.’”

According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist New Hampshire Poll released earlier this week, Sanders is leading Hillary by 20 points.

Questions to Ask About Osama bin Laden’s Death

What a week it’s been.

On Wednesday, after three years of refusal, Obama suddenly released his “real” birth certificate.

Then in the early evening hours of Sunday came the momentous news that after almost TEN years, the dastardly Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the 9-11 terrorist attacks on America, was found “hiding in a mansion” in Pakistan and killed by our military. A quick DNA test confirms he indeed is bin Laden!

As I write this post (it’s nearly 10 pm, west coast), huge crowds have gathered around the White House, celebrating. The corporate-state media are in orgasmic mode, singing Obama’s praises.

Do you find the timing of all this to be interesting, if not suspicious? Do you find it curious that, for THREE years, Obama had refused to release his birth certificate but suddenly decided to come clean to the American people at a time when Donald Trump’s taunting about the birth certificate was garnering increasing publicity, so much so that a poll showed only 36% of Americans were sure Obama was born in America?

Do you find it curious that, for TEN years, Osama bin Laden had eluded being captured by the greatest, best trained, and best equipped military in the world?

A thought-provoking article by Kurt Nimmo and Alex Jones of Infowars.com, “Red Alert: Government Had Osama bin Laden Frozen for Years,” May 1, 2010, makes the following claims:

  • In 2002, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said bin Laden had kidney disease, and that he had required a dialysis machine when he lived in Afghanistan. So how does a man with severe kidney disease manage to elude our Navy SEALS and Special Ops for TEN years?
  • In 2002, the FBI’s top counterterrorism official, Dale Watson, said, “I personally think he [bin Laden] is probably not with us anymore.” Now why would Watson, a sane man, say something as crazy as that?
  • Alex Jones was told live on the radio in 2002 by high-level Council on Foreign Relations members that Osama Bin Laden had died of kidney failure in early 2002. “I have it from high level [sources] from inside the Bush administration…that bin Laden died of natural causes and that his family has given the body to the CIA, that they’re gonna roll him out right before the election, that he’s on ice right now,” Alex said at the time.
  • In 2003, former U.S. (Clinton administration) Secretary of State Madeleine Albright told Fox News Channel analyst Morton Kondracke she suspected Bush knew the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden and was waiting for the most politically expedient moment to announce his capture. Now why would Albright, a sane woman, say something crazy like that?
  • Benazir Bhutto, the Pakistan prime minister who was assassinated in a 2007 suicide attack, said that Osama bin Laden had been killed by Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, a man convicted of kidnapping and killing journalist Daniel Pearl. Why would Bhutto, a highly intelligent and accomplished and sane woman, say something like that?

They — Bush, Musharraf, Watson, Albright, Bhutto — must all be crazy!

A-List Invitees to Obama-Hu State Dinner

Are you curious about who are the glitterati who were invited by Obama for his recent state dinner honoring Hu Jintao? Hu is the president of China — a country that, despite its market reforms that quickly have catapulted it to near superpower status, is still ruled by the Communist Party that regularly arrests, tortures, and imprisons political dissidents and followers of unapproved religions, especially the neoBuddhist Falun Gong.

A recent Wayne Madsen Report, exclusive to subscribers, gives the A-list of guests — which Madsen (gotta love the guy) calls “mostly an A-hole list”: 

“President Obama’s invitation list for the state dinner for visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao may be an ‘A-list’ to some, but, for the most part, those invited to the dinner represent the worst kinds of Americans, the ‘A-hole’ cream of the crop in the United States.”

Here’s the list of “American rogues” invited to dine on roast beef and lobster with an American president who’s a fraud, and a Chinese President who’s the head of a criminal regime. The list gives us a glimpse into some of the denizens of our political ruling class:

  1. “America’s most infamous war criminal, Henry Kissinger, a fan of gulags, Cambodian genocide, South African and Israeli apartheid, and the gassing of Soviet Jews.”
  2. Wendi Deng Murdoch, the Chinese “dragon lady” wife of neocon media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
  3. A lovely incestuous group comprised of:
    • Secretary of State Madeleine Albright;
    • Albright’s god-daughter Susan Rice, Obama’s UN ambassador;
    • Rice’s husband, ABC News producer Ian Cameron;
    • The host of the show Cameron produces, Christian Amanpour;
    • Amanpour’s husband James Rubin, Albright’s one-time spokesman.
  4. The “old philanderer-in-chief ‘Slick Willie’ Clinton.”
  5. The “old Bechtel criminal from the Reagan administration” George Shultz.
  6. “Weird Howard” Berman, the former chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee.
  7. Maryland Representative Steny Hoyer.
  8. Arch-neocon Robert Kagan.
  9. Former vice chairman of Goldman Sachs and now Under Secretary of State for Economic, Business, and Agricultural Affairs Robert Hormats.
  10. David Rubenstein, the founder of The Carlyle Group.
  11. Obama’s “Chicago Mafia”: Mayor Richard Daley; his brother, incoming Obama chief of staff William Daley; Tom Pritzker of the Pritzker real estate conglomerate of Chicago; David Axelrod; Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and Valerie Jarrett.
  12. “Pseudo-journalists of the corporate media”: David Ignatius of The Washington Post, Thomas Friedman and Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times, and The Atlantic’s James Fallows.
  13. The UAW’s Robert King.
  14. “Leading financial shysters of Wall Street”: Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs and Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan Chase.
  15. Luis Ubinas of The Ford Foundation in New York, the same Ford Foundation for which Obama’s mom, Stanley Ann Dunham, had worked for decades.
  16. CEOs from Dow Chemical (of “Agent Orange” infamy), Microsoft, Motorola, General Electric, Intel, and Boeing.
  17. Barbra Streisand (“there is no telling what she said or did to her old White House boyfriend, Slick Willie Clinton”).
