Kirsten Gillibrand proves again why Left-wing feminism is nothing more than authoritarianism
By JD Heyes // Dec 10, 2018

In the beginning, the feminist movement may have been aimed primarily at ensuring women were treated more equally — at the workplace and throughout society in general. But over the decades it has morphed into just another construct the Left uses as a battering ram against political opponents.


Modern feminism resides within the Democrat Party, as evidenced again last week by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. In a virtue-signaling tweet to the Left, she claimed that in the “future” there would be no place in American society for men or any male-dominated cultural traits.

“Our future is: 



Powered by our belief in one another.

And we’re just getting started.”

In case you haven’t heard the term before, “intersectional” refers to another Left-wing construct — that 21st century America remains a racist, bigoted, and wholly unfair country, denying rights and freedoms to anyone who isn’t white and male, so “someone” — ‘empowered women’ specifically — has to do something about it. 

That’s ridiculous, of course, but the Democrat Left has been bereft of ideas for years, relying instead on creating as many victims for as many generations as possible, for their own empowerment. 

That said, Gillibrand was, without a doubt, just pandering to the Alt-Left in advance of what many believe is a 2020 presidential run. And there were more than a few people unwilling to let her get away with it. 

Divisive, tyrannical ideology

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., responded on Twitter, saying, “our future is: AMERICAN.”

“An identity based not on gender, race, ethnicity or religion. But on the powerful truth that all people are created equal with a God given right to life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness,” he added.

Donald Trump Jr. also responded: “Good to know. My girls will be excited about this. When is it appropriate to let my boys (9, 7 and 6 years old) [know] that there's no future for them? Not sure this is a winning platform but you be you.”

“Everyone should be viewed as equals, regardless of immutable characteristics. Now we keep hearing how one group should replace another- women vs. men, etc. It's completely backwards,” said one Twitter user, Fox News reported.

Chris Churchill, a columnist, reminisced about when Gillibrand was a centrist Democrat, not a tool of the progressive Left. 

“Remember when Gillibrand was an NRA favorite and an immigration hawk?” he wrote.

It’s not clear that Gillibrand even believes this garbage. More likely than not she is saying what she thinks she needs to say to move up in the ranks of the Democrat Party’s perpetually triggered and angry faction of Leftist America haters.

And while that’s nothing new for politicians, generally speaking, the feminist ideology behind what Gillibrand wrote is divisive and dishonest. 

Democrats are the first ones to claim that POTUS Donald Trump is the “divider in chief” — that his rough-around-the-edges style is harmful to our country. 

But by design, the Left’s political constructs prey upon our differences rather than promote our commonalities. ‘Femimism’ is but one of them, emphasizing female empowerment at the cost of true equality: Women are promoted over men that sole purpose alone — for the sake of promotion — not because they have earned it or because they deserve it. 

The same is true of the Left’s vision of “equality;” minorities are given opportunities not afforded to majority whites simply because they are minorities, not necessarily because they are better students or more qualified workers. 

These kinds of artificial benchmarks are just another way the Left imposes its will on an unwilling society. 

That’s not fairness or equality or ‘providing opportunity.’ That’s authoritarianism. It’s tyranny.
