Hillary Super Fans Lay Down The Law On "Sexist" Words You Can't Use When Reporting on Hillary

They call themselves the "HRC Super Volunteers."

And boy hardy! Is that a fitting name!

"Now that we're gearing up into a presidential election, we are going to watch how the media reports again on Clinton," he said. "We support any Democrat, but we're very sensitive to media sexism."

In an email titled "Your Obsessive and Loathsome Coverage," West warned newsrooms this week that he and other Clinton supporters will be on the lookout for instances of sexism directed at the presumed Democratic Party nominee.

"We continue to experience vile and hateful responses anytime we speak out against sexist reporting, sexist comments, or post positive facts about Hillary Clinton and her record," read the email, which was obtained by the Examiner. "[W]e will not tolerate any form of sexist news coverage of any woman who chooses to break through glass ceilings; whether as a CEO or running for President of these United States."

The email, which was spearheaded by West, listed examples of the times newsrooms have supposedly been sexist towards Clinton, including a New York Times' report that she continued to "scramble in the dirt on the crabbed limbs of legal compliance," a Washington Post description of the 67-year-old as a "stale, musty" car, and a New Yorker description of her as "petulant."

A recipient of West's email, Times reporter Amy Chozick, noted on Twitter Wednesday that HRC Super Volunteers had contacted her. She then listed West's many examples of media's sexist descriptors for Clinton, including "polarizing," "calculating," "disingenuous," "insincere," "ambitious," "inevitable," "entitled" and "over-confident."

I don't see any mention there of "cankles."

F A K E ? ! ? ! That's what Ken White (Popehat) says, and now that he brings it up, this all does seem like a rightwing prankster.
