Letter: Hillary has worked for women, children her entire adult life



Seriously? Brian Kelly and Steve Greenberg, did you REALLY say that “the only woman (Hillary) Clinton cares about is herself?” (Current “From the Backshop,” July 26, 2016)

Before you make these types of ridiculous statements, you should do your homework and not just believe everything Donald Trump spoon-feeds you. Hillary Clinton has been working on behalf of women and children her entire adult life (OntheIssues.org). Just because the Republicans drag Patricia Smith (mother of slain soldier Sean Smith in Benghazi) up to the podium (which I thought was classless to cash in on the woman’s grief) so she can publicly blame Hillary Clinton for the party’s own purposes, you’re totally discounting her entire career? What about the fact that Congress cut the budget for embassy security? Maybe Hillary was advised that the video was the reason for the attack. Unless you were at the meeting between Patricia Smith and Hillary Clinton, you don’t really know what happened, do you? And what about the 60 people who died during the 13 embassy attacks during the Bush administration? (Snopes.com, Politifact.com, Huffington Post) Where’s the outrage over that? But I digress.

Especially after President Clinton’s speech on Tuesday evening, how any person could possibly say Hillary Clinton doesn’t care about women is so blinded by their own right-wing beliefs that they can’t (or don’t want to) see the truth. Does Hillary have baggage? Absolutely. But just because you two have your own little Republican propaganda paper doesn’t mean you get to ignore the facts. Hillary Clinton has championed women’s rights for years. Just because one woman feels betrayed does not nullify Hillary’s entire career.

I’ll never understand why men are so threatened by strong, intelligent women.
