Faces of Fake Feminism
Madeleine Albright
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Gloria Steinem
Down and Dirty anti-Diplomatists, Violent Aggressors in dresses "derail reasonable discussion, prevent diplomacy from finding solutions to avoid war."
Carolyn LaDelle Bennett excerpts from Diana Johnstone’s Queen of Chaos: The Misadventures of Hillary

he presence of women in high levels in the [US Department of State] could be seen merely as the result of women’s well-deserved success in significant careers. But the roles played by these women express hostile aspects of US policy more eloquently than men could even manage in the same positions.

“Each in her own way uses her personality to sharpen the aggressive edge of US foreign policy and to make reaching any diplomatic understanding with others more difficult. There was a time when feminists claimed that women in powerful positions would make a tremendous contribution toward world peace. America’s tough women are squandering expectations, dating back to Aristophanes’ ‘Lysistrata’, that women could be mobilized against war. [In Greek playwright (b. circa 450 BC, d. circa 388 BC) Aristophanes’ 411 BCE comedy ‘Lysistrata’, women of Sparta, prompted by ‘Lysistrata’, declare a ban on sexual contact until their partners end” the decades-long “Peloponnesian War”, and persist “until their … partners arrange for peace…” (Britannica note inserted)]
HRC and Nuland


he snarls of Madeleine Albright, the gloating lectures of Hillary [Rodham] Clinton, the insults of Susan Rice, the tough talk of Victoria Nuland, the eloquent  temper tantrums of Samantha Power and even the arrogant ignorance  of State Department press spokeswomen tell a different story.
White House Spokeswoman
Jen Psaki

hese harpies all work for Democratic administrations claiming great devotion to the cause of human rights, but they have made it clear that this devotion, far from stemming from kindness and gentleness, functions primarily as a motive for punishing alleged offenders. The [Barack] Obama administration intensified the use of women to whip the rest of the world into line in a US-produced and directed production of ‘The Taming By the Shrew’ on the world stage.

“Washington’s foreign policy women specialize in haranguing foreign leaders or diplomats as if they are badly behaved children. Their bullying behavior displays an assurance that, because they are women [emphasis added], they can get away with rudeness that most men in their position would feel obliged to avoid.

Susan Rice
s US Ambassador to the United Nations, before she became President Obama’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice showed no concern for the niceties of diplomatic usage. She advocated rejoining the UN Human Rights Council largely as a way to fight against [in Rice’s dirty language] ‘the anti-Israel crap’ coming from defenders of the Palestinians.  

Hillary Rodham Clinton
“Protégée as well as successor to Madeleine Albright, Rice often sounds the same tone. Just as Madeleine sponsored creation of the breakaway failed State of Kosovo, Susan is credited with a large role in creating another breakaway failed State, South Sudan. Susan Rice acknowledges that she is seen as ‘brusque, aggressive and abrasive’, but doesn’t care. ‘Of course people don’t say that to my face,’ Susan Rice joked at a UN Correspondents Association ball, ‘because they know I’d kick their butts.’

“While acting as ‘unfeminine’ as possible, Ms. Rice was implicitly taking advantage of a feminine privilege—women’s certainty that the men they insult are still too civilized to ‘kick their butts’ in return.

Samantha Power
usan Rice was succeeded as Ambassador to the United Nations in Obama’s second term by Samantha Power, whose style is totally different, although their policy positions are usually same.

“During the 2008 presidential election campaign, Power was obliged to resign from the Obama support team for publicly calling Hillary Clinton a ‘monster’…. However, all was apparently forgiven. As a member of Obama’s National Security Council, Samantha Power joined Hillary and Susan Rice in urging Obama to bomb Libya….Looks also count…

amantha Power’s long mane of red hair makes her a dramatic figure in the UN Security Council when she leaves her seat to go over and upbraid the startled Russian delegation. However, it did not take long before her histrionics had reduced her to a laughing stock in their eyes.

“Whether just plain rude, like Susan Rice, or melodramatic, like Samantha Power, self-righteous tirades serve only to derail reasonable discussion and prevent diplomacy from finding solutions to avoid war.”
