‘White Women Did What White Women Do’: Some Leftists Are Really Mad at White Women for Voting GOP

Some Democrats aren’t blaming candidates like Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) or Andrew Gillum (R-Fla.) for their election night losses — they’re blaming white women.

Twitter exploded with several posts from prominent figures on the left pointing the finger at white women as the reason that Democrats did not win in several high-profile races.

Many took the opportunity to try and shame women for their votes, condescendingly explaining why white women were wrong to cast votes in favor the candidate of their choice, instead of the candidate Democrats wanted them to vote for.

Others decided to skip the subtlety, blatantly accusing women who cast votes for Republicans of white supremacy.

One self-described feminist claimed that women who voted for Republicans were the “foot soldiers of the patriarchy,” but, luckily for white women, she is considering saving them from being “brainwashed” by men.

The Women’s March even delivered an Orwellian hot take, claiming that white women needed to be worked on and educated to correct their voting habits.

In response to these posts, many felt that these comments were not only racially charged, but they were anti-feminist because they essentially relay that white women aren’t capable of voting for issues that are important to women.

While this may be offensive to white women who believe they cast their vote for the person they believed would best represent them instead of secretly trying to push a white supremacist agenda, this is not the first time some on the left have tried to shame women for their vote.

From Hillary Clinton to Chelsea Handler, several prominent Democrats railed against white women after the 2016 presidential election. Clearly, that didn’t exactly work out as well as they had hoped because Ted Cruz is still a Senator and President Donald Trump is still the president.

I absolutely love how I am being pushed into a patriarchal box and essentially called an empty headed white woman because I chose to support those that fight to keep the Precepts of the Constitution in tact. It is doubly concerning to me that I am criticized in my “patriarchal thought” by people who support a different religious sect, not Christianity, that espouses patriarchy far over and beyond any American values, just because they are for globalism. Hypocrisy is the word of the day.

I won’t be shamed for being a white woman, I won’t submit to the tyranny of sexists who hate and insult men, and racists who hate everyone white trying to shame and bully me into voting their way. I voted Trump because he’s pro-America, I supported Cruz because he is for our constitution. Yes, I AM a nationalist, yes I Am a conservative, yes I AM Christian. Yes I AM a patriot, yes I AM proud to be a woman. I WON’T hate my race, my gender, my faith, or my sexual orientation. Left is delusional.

As a white woman, I know that I voted according to the facts. I am an antiabortion, pro constitution, limited government woman.
I am tired of the media pushing an agenda that totally goes against my beliefs and using tactics that are dividing the country.

I don’t vote for liberal candidates because liberals are delusional. Liberals scream about Trump TALKING about grabbing women by their genitals, but never said a word about Obama bringing in hundreds of thousands of misogynists, many of whom believe in female genital mutilation. Liberals say they fight poverty, but want to increase poverty by flooding the country with poor foreigners. Liberal women say they don’t need men, but vote to force men to support children that aren’t theirs.

Maybe we are just a bit more educated than you who cannot even speak English at a 4th grade level! And maybe we don’t vote by emotion…rather logic! I knew what I was voting for in each ELECTION. A whiny, fraudulent, backstabbing, lying piece of *h*it like Hillary or someone who everyone knew what he was, but he was a businessman instead of a politician. Economy is growing! People are back to work! More money in my wallet every month! Why would I vote Democrat when we already wasted 8 years.

“White women”. Apparently whites are the only group it’s safe for the Left to badmouth. Otherwise someone MIGHT call them racists and sexists. fun thought exercise: replace “white women” with “black men” and see how that works.

Gee, a bunch of liberals telling another group of people what they should think. What a surprise! I look at those percentages listed in this article and it looks to me like that there are OTHER groups of women who seem incapable of thinking for themselves.

Yes, it seems to be one of the Left’s worst and most common tropes. Maybe it’s a package deal with the overweening arrogance implants.

q.v. Phyllis, Insipid, etc. who not only knew everything, but were gifted with the power to speak for others.

Obviously it is a lot of black men making comments about how white women vote. Again, they don’t understand white women and our logically personalities. Logic! Not emotion!

Here’s a concept. Let people speak for themselves AND as individuals, not a monolithic bloc determined by “identity politics”.
