Hispanic actress America Ferrera is out with an endorsement article for Hillary Clinton that aims to leave readers with a stunningly fluffed-up, fantasy-filled idea of the leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Ferrera lists the reasons why she supports Hillary, including that Hillary “is capable of working with both Republicans and Democrats” (yes, she’s talking about the same candidate who said Republicans were her biggest enemy) and that no one has done more to empower American millennial women.
Ferrera also says the reason she wants to “Netflix and Chill” with Hillary is because “I’m an American-Latina who’s experienced first-hand the inequities that so many children and families in underserved communities face in our country.”
What’s before us here is another prime specimen of liberal Hollywood propaganda, using a kind-of-sort-of-I-guess famous celebrity to push Hillary onto the millennial generation. The same millennial generation that isn’t as much of a lock as they probably thought it would be for Clinton, thanks to Senator Bernie Sander’s proven ability to sway them away.
The actress goes on to list a couple of other reasons she is going to vote for Hillary, including making the case that immigrant “families didn’t come to this country to solve the immigration reform” but rather, for access to reproductive rights. Yes, she really said that. Immigrants came into the U.S. so they could get abortions apparently (I highlighted it on the excerpt down below just in case you don’t believe me.)
Below are pertinent excerpts from America Ferrera’s April 14, 2016 article titled “Why Hillary Clinton Thrills the Hell Out of Me”:
There is a view, often expressed on my social media feeds, which maintains that I am voting for Hillary Clinton because I’m a stupid, uninformed, misguided feminist who only knows how to vote with her ignorant vagina. While this may be possible, I’d like to entertain some other potential reasons for my support of Hillary.
She’s the kind of woman I’d share a bottle of wine with. Maybe this is my vagina’s fault, but maybe I really heart Hillary because I was raised by a single mother who woke up every day and did the unglamorous and grueling work of providing for her six children.
I’d like to literally stream Netflix and chill with Hillary. Seriously, I’d be down to snuggle in onesies with a pint of mint chocolate chip and do a Gilmore Girls binge with Secretary Clinton. Maybe that’s because I’m an American-Latina who’s experienced firsthand the inequities that so many children and families in underserved communities face in our country.
Maybe I’m voting for Hillary because I’m beyond ready for a president who is capable of working with both Republicans and Democrats to find common ground.
Our families didn’t come to this country to solve the immigration reform problem: they came to thrive. They came to get educated, to start businesses and to contribute. From access to healthcare and higher education, to reproductive rights and support for small business owners
So, yeah, I would totes be Hillary’s BFF. Maybe that’s because I have come to see with my own eyes, through various humanitarian efforts, that women are underrepresented, disadvantaged and exploited globally — from the halls of power to the back alleys of red light districts to the trafficking rings in which women are murdered, raped and traded as if they were objects rather than human beings.
She dared to demand that women’s rights be seen as human rights. And she traveled the world as Secretary of State insisting that world leaders include women in their countries’ economic and security plans. That thrills and inspires the hell out of me.
So, maybe I’m supporting Hillary because I can’t manage to wrangle my vagina’s political agenda. Or maybe, just maybe, I’m voting for Hillary because no candidate in this race has done more to empower this first-generation American millennial woman, raised by a single immigrant mother, and educated in public schools, to grow up and contribute back to society — even if I needed a free lunch along the way.
