Offensive and sexist buttons attacking Hillary Clinton with the slogan “KFC Hillary Special: 2 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts … Left Wing,” proved to be a popular item at the California Republican convention this weekend.
Marinucci reported the disturbing buttons were spotted in a prominent display outside of a VIP reception area, and later appeared to have been removed, probably after media sources began to report on the grossly insensitive and sexist nature of the buttons.
Echoing the sentiment of many observers, Huffington Post reported “the anti-Hillary Clinton buttons that were spotted at the California Republican Party convention are quite simply offensive and disgusting.”
The buttons are symbolic of the ongoing war on women being waged by a Republican party that would gladly set back the cause of women’s rights over 50 years, while teaching children religious superstition instead of science, and forcing our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters back into the proverbial closet.
Republicans are eager to deny a woman an abortion, even in the case of rape. Tea Party Republican at the state and national level went into overdrive during the last legislative session, proposing and in some cases passing some of the most draconian laws attempting to limit women’s reproductive freedom. These moral midgets would demand mandatory motherhood while pushing a misogynistic agenda that would deny a woman's right to control her own reproductive health.
The offensive and disgusting anti-Hillary Clinton buttons found at the California Republican convention this weekend are but tokens of the deep misogyny and sexism that permeates the GOP.
