Suburban Artwork and “Rising Above” it All: The Problem With Girls and Clinton’s Loss

As if being in a local department store yesterday and hearing Kelly Clarkson’s “Fight Song” and Katy Perry’s “Firework” back-to-back wasn’t enough, I came across this a few days ago. Hillary Clinton and her supporters just can’t let it go, man. The Election Night fireworks may have been canceled but they could not for the life of them figure out what to do with all if that environmentally unfriendly (Climate Change and Global Warming were to take a back seat that evening) confetti.

The shiny confetti was to represent shards of glass being broken and falling from the glass ceiling at the Javits Center that fateful evening. Progressive artist and former Clinton arts bureaucrat, Bunny Burson, spouse of former Chief of Staff to the Vice President of the United States under Al Gore (yes, I said environmentally UNFRIENDLY confetti) acquired all 200 pounds of the stuff and has decided to create art. The work is on display at the Bruno David Museum in suburban Clayton, Missouri:

The snow globe-like display will travel to Colorado in December. Burson plans to make 1,000 of these “I Will Rise” (inspired by Maya Angelou’s poetry) art pieces and give profits to Planned Parenthood. (Can I barf, now?)

“It’s all about the empowerment of women. This is my metaphor for the future because I think that it is to inspire and to motivate and to empower young women and little girls to be bold, to dream big, to break their own glass ceilings, and to hopefully finally break that highest, hardest one.”-Bunny Burson

Because, again, nothing says “empowerment” like a woman choosing to end the life of another potentially great woman, right? I’m so sure that is exactly what the legendary Maya Angelou meant by “rising”. While I was trying to block out the excruciating torture of “Fight Song”, I came across a few t-shirts in the junior’s section. They read: “The Future is Female”, “Girl Power”, one was captioned “Hear Me Roar”.

I got to thinking about these and other mantras that have been ever so prevalent after Clinton’s loss. I also got to thinking about the Maya Angelou poem that inspired Burson’s “work of art”:

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.-Maya Angelou

Here’s the deal. To Hillary Clinton’s supporters, her loss is still all about a misogynistic patriarchy and has absolutely nothing to do with their or Clinton’s own actions culminating in a Donald Trump win. She was tread in the dirt and everyone was picking on poor Hillary, feeding America “bitter, twisted lies”, according to their narrative. She was a victim. Young girls who are not quite old enough yet to vote or to even understand were crushed by Clinton’s loss and are now vowing to “run for president” to avenge the “patriarchy”. I’m still wondering how the future is “female” if this cycle continues. Hence, I have to say something and get it out there.

So girls, listen up. This is how you RISE. When your parents don’t say “no” to you and don’t establish healthy parental boundaries, where does this lead? When your role models objectify themselves (all whilst complaining about the misogynistic patriarchy) and treat potential lives of other girls with ambivalence, how do you RISE? When you are told that you are a victim, time and time again and that you will never go far because other people keep you down, how do you RISE? When you blame your losses and shortcomings on everyone else and neglect to acknowledge that YOU had a part in this play and that YOU were center-stage, how do you learn? When you place your faith in others to make everything right for you and in government officials and others to do everything for you instead of taking accountability for your own actions and realizing WHO really is in control, how do you RISE?

Maya Angelou’s poetic prose was inspired by slavery of her ancestors and her own painful life experiences which included being in bondage as a sex worker. My guess is that Bunny Burson has not experienced any form of slavery in her white, privileged life of art gallery displays in suburbia. A large amount of these girls bemoaning Hillary’s loss have not experienced slavery in or bondage in any way, shape or form either. And trust me when I say this, they are probably not aware of the bondage, the lack of freedom, the genital mutilations, the beatings, the rapes, the trafficking, the prostitution and the murders of women who don’t conform under Sharia face. They don’t want to know. They’re just busy here in The United States of America sniveling because they did not get their woman president and making and throwing money at Planned Parenthood to purchase glorified shadow boxes of “glass-ceiling” confetti. Bondage.

    “And still I rise”

    Sounds like a Walking Dead episode (since it’s about Hillary, it may be. There’s a significant chance of brain eaters being present.)

    In general the running dog lackeys of the left are ignorant of history. Likewise they willfully choose to ignore the dark side of human nature. We on the conservative side of the spectrum are their substitute for the evil they choose to ignore.

  • Hillary campaign rents hall with glass ceiling.
    Hillary can’t break it, even symbolically.
    Glass ceiling remains intact..
    There may be a lesson in there somewhere!

    inspire and to motivate and to empower …little girls to be bold

    Well, how are there going to be any little girls if PP is aborting them?

    This is my metaphor for the future

    And, as an FYI, there is no future if there’s no children.

    I got to thinking about these and other mantras that have been ever so prevalent after Clinton’s loss.

    Honestly, it’s been at an annoying level of “gurl power” for a lot longer than since Hillary’s loss. For at least four years it’s been past that level.

    A large amount of these girls bemoaning Hillary’s loss have not experienced slavery in or bondage in any way, shape or form either.

    Oh, I don’t know, that’s sort of the in thing now, isn’t it? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more.
