Michael Moore: Any Woman Who Votes For Trump Has Stockholm Syndrome

By  Ben Shapiro

On Saturday, bloated terror and Communist sycophant Michael Moore – a man who was honored at the 2004 Democratic National Convention – came out with his analysis of female Trump voters:

I did run into Trump voters. and I asked them, especially — I remember one woman. I said — she was telling me that she voted for Trump. I said ‘Really? in spite of his attitudes toward women and the things that he said?’ And she said, ‘Well, you know, women, a lot of us, we’ve just had to learn to take it over the years. You know, that’s how my dad talked and that’s how my brothers talk.’ And I thought, oh, geez, you know, it was such a reminder of still how far we have to go. I was at this one thing, John Leguizamo, a great actor and comedian, Hispanic, he says ‘I’m Hispanic and I always thought racism was our number one problem that we have to deal with, but this election really showed that we’ve ignored the misogyny and the sexism that is still so prevalent and ingrained.’ And ingrained in many of the victims, the 46% of women that voted for Trump and the 53% of white women that voted for Trump. And that’s — well, that just says that we’ve got more work to do and we’ll keep doing it.

In other words, white females voted for Trump because they’ve got some sort of Stockholm Syndrome – they’ve become indoctrinated in their own inferiority. It can’t be that perhaps Democrats don’t represent a huge percentage of women because they reduce female voters to their ovaries and uteri, or because they purvey the myth that men are inherently victimizers, an argument many women simply don’t believe. No, it must be that the patriarchy has somehow reduced half of females to simpering hostages, mouthing the words of their husbands’ political creed while barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen.

The left has long predicated its supposed moral superiority on the notion that they are the exclusive representatives of all victimized groups in the intersectional hierarchy: they represent gays, blacks, Hispanics, Jews, women…everyone, in fact, except for straight white males. It’s why the left is intent on propagating the notion that Donald Trump’s victory was solely due to the outsized vote of white voters, even though Trump won approximately the same percentage of whites as Mitt Romney did in 2012: to acknowledge that Trump did better among minorities than Romney would undercut their entire argument.

That holds particularly true among women, given the fact that Democrats ran their five-star general in the War on Women, Hillary Clinton – and lost the white female vote. While women supported Clinton by approximately 54 percent to 42 percent, that was no real improvement over President Obama’s 2012 showing – 55 percent to 44 percent. And a majority of white women voted for Trump.

But here’s the truth: the left doesn’t represent all women, and women aren’t any less strong because they voted for Trump. Republican women may not believe that killing of the unborn tops the list of concerns; they may be more worried about Islamic terrorism. Republican women may not be fans of Trump’s language about women, but they may also think that Hillary Clinton is a sexual assault apologist in her own right, and her husband a sexual predator.

But for Moore, anyone of minority status who votes Republican must be a subject of indoctrination from the right. Which counts as mansplaining to Republican women. Which, come to think of it, is pretty sexist.
