The Shaming of Cheryl Rios

In the age of media narratives, your business is everyone’s business.

Here it is, the nadir of news:

Dallas Woman Posts on Facebook “A Female Shouldn’t Be President”

That is a real headline from the website of CBS 11, Dallas’s local CBS affiliate, where everyone can now read about how Cheryl Rios, the head of a local marketing firm, posted the following to Facebook in reaction to Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid:

If this happens — I am moving to Canada. There is NO need for her as she is not the right person to run our country — but more importantly a female shouldn’t be president. Let the haters begin . . . but with the hormones we have there is no way we should be able to start a war. Yes I run my own business and I love it and I am great at it BUT that is not the same as being the President, that should be left to a man, a good, strong, honorable man.

CBS 11 thought this declaration so important that it sent a reporter to interview Rios — who, unsurprisingly, defended her comment…

…But who is Cheryl Rios? Nobody — at least, not until CBS 11 reported on her personal opinion posted on her personal Facebook page, and turned her into the latest object of left-wing Twitter’s two minutes’ hate (operative hashtag: “#everydaysexism”). And this story is, I think, prompted by a more alarming impulse than was the Hillary Burrito Blowout…

    If she moves to Canada she’d have to steer clear of Wynne’s Ontario

    There’s a lesson in all of this: If you’re a member of a recognized victim group (woman, gay, black), don’t you dare wander off the Democrat plantation or there will be consequences!

    Gotta love how Democrats are framing the election of president Hillary as some sort of historic precedent. Maggie Thatcher did exceptionally well as PM. Hillary is no Maggie Thatcher.

    BillyHW ……….. “but with the hormones we have there is no way we should be able to start a war.” Is this true?

      It sure is something to think about. When I was on testosterone suppressants as part of my prostrate cancer therapy, I remember getting very emotional over the smallest stuff. It took a couple of years to get things back in balance.

      Hillary is past the age of being buffeted by hormones, anyway.

    I guess she doesn’t know that Canada has already had a women PM. The PM got crushed in the election, probably because of all those hormones.

    I am impressed that she refused to cave in to all the tyranny and intimidation. I am sick of people who cave in to the cultural marxist thugs. It doesn’t matter if we agree or disagree with her view, she earns my respect.

    Hey, I will go so far as to say women should never have gotten the vote. Also, only land owners should be allowed to vote. Finally, people on welfare lose their right to vote as long as they are on welfare and for 10 years after. 🙂
