Last week, former Republican Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin roared back on to the political scene, calling far-left Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vice President Kamala Harris “fake feminists.”
Palin made her remarks during an interview in on Fox News’ “Primetime” with host Rachel Campos-Duffy.

Palin: ‘These fake feminists who bring the women’s movement back so far by channeling everything right on back to, ‘Oh, it’s our gender’
Campos-Duffy asked Palin about Ocasio-Cortez and Harris’ responses to recent media criticism.
Palin called Ocasio-Cortez and Harris “fake feminists,” and said the reason these Democrats are criticized is not because of their gender, but because in the end they are hurting the “women’s movement.”
“These fake feminists who bring the women’s movement back so far by channeling everything right on back to, ‘Oh, it’s our gender,” Palin told Campos-Duffy. “Doggone it, people don’t like us because we’re female.”

Palin then said that character matters more than gender.
“Perhaps, again, their foundation isn’t what is commonplace in the American populace where, no, gender really doesn’t matter — it’s the character of who you are, it’s your work ethic,” Palin said.
Sarah Palin is 100% right, Kamala Harris and AOC are fake feminists!

“I’m really thankful that I was brought up in a place where gender truly has not mattered, and I certainly don’t blame, you know, criticisms on me being female,” the former governor added. “Can you imagine if I would’ve have done that all these years now what they’d be saying?”
If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet.

Both Ocasio-Cortez Snd Harris Have Blamed Sexism
After Ocasio-Cortez was recently seen on vacation in Florida during the Omicron surge, many criticized her.
Particularly when the now-COVID positive congresswoman said that Republicans were “mad” they “can’t date [her].”
Harris has made similar comments in the past, bringing up her race and gender as the reason she is criticized.
