“I was raised a Republican, but I just can’t imagine supporting a party that doesn’t support women’s basic rights,” Lawrence told Vogue.

This is more a cautionary tale, because you know this kind of rhetoric is going to be emblematic of the next twelve months with Hillary Clinton campaigning for President (read our column predicting this exact playbook from over 8 months ago).
Just as the left decried all opposition to Obama as “racist,” they will decry all opposition to Hillary as sexist. They will attempt to turn “bitch” into the new n-word, even though there is no comparison. One was designed to insult, demean and oppress black slaves…
