Hillary Clinton has been catching some flak lately for her association with an oft-accused sexual predator. That would be her husband, disgraced and impeached former president Bill Clinton.
The problem most recently arose when Hill “brushed off” a “heckler” according to the Puff Ho. The “heckler” in question is actually Republican New Hampshire State Representative Katherine Prudhomme-O’Brien, who repeatedly tried to raise the question of Bill Clinton’s sexual predations against female associates during a townhall meeting in New Hampshire on Sunday.
Hillary responded in her best school-marm-with-a-stick-up-her-ass way, saying “you are very rude and I am never going to call on you. Neener neener neener,” at which point Rep. Prudhomme-O’Brien burst into tears and stumbled from the room, weeping uncontrollably.
The crowd of Hillary supporters leapt to their feet, applauding wildly, and shouting avowals of their willingness to lay down their lives for the Democrat hopeful, rather that listen to a single syllable of anything resembling a mild criticism of her alleged-rapist husband.
Okay, I exaggerate.
But luckily CNN’s Dan Merica can help us understand.
Clinton rolled out a plan to address campaign sexual assault (sic) in 2015, telling an audience in Iowa that rape victims “have the right to be believed.”
“Today I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault,” Clinton said. “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed and we’re with you.”
But some, especially Republicans who are bothered by Bill Clinton’s alleged sexual impropriety, saw the comment as hypocritical.
And not only they, but all those other English speakers as well. Hypocritical is an understatement.
What Hillary Clinton really meant, was “You have the right to be believed. Unless I am legally representing your assailant. Or am married to him.”
Concerning the former, it is not just that Hillary in 1975 defended an accused child-rapist against charges of rape, but that she did so by attacking the truthfulness and mental health of the rape victim, then 12 years old.
In a sworn affidavit aiming to coerce a psychiatric evaluation of the sixth-grade victim, Clinton during the case nearly 40 years ago called into question the girl’s emotional stability, arguing she had exhibited “a tendency to seek out older men and engage in… fantasizing.” She added, citing a child psychology expert that “children in early adolescence tend to exaggerate or romanticize sexual experiences and that adolescents with disorganized families, such as the complainant, are even more prone to such behavior.”
And concerning the latter, here is a partial list of those accusing Billy Goat Clinton of sexual assault:
- Juanita Broaddrick (AR)- rape
- Eileen Wellstone (Oxford) – rape
- Elizabeth Ward Gracen – rape – quid pro quo, post incident intimidation
- Regina Hopper Blakely – “forced himself on her, biting, bruising her”
- Kathleen Willey (WH) – sexual assault, intimidations, threats
- Sandra Allen James (DC) – sexual assault
- 22 Year Old 1972 (Yale) – sexual assault
- Kathy Bradshaw (AK) – sexual assault
- Cristy Zercher – unwelcomed sexual advance, intimidations
- Paula Jones (AR) – unwelcomed sexual advance, exposure, bordering on sexual assault
- Carolyn Moffet -unwelcomed sexual advance, exposure, bordering on sexual assault
- 1974 student at University of Arkansas – unwelcomed physical contact
- 1978-1980 – seven complaints per Arkansas state troopers
- Monica Lewinsky – quid pro quo, post incident character assault
- Gennifer Flowers – quid pro quo, post incident character assault
- Dolly Kyle Browning – post incident character assault
- Sally Perdue – post incident threats
- Betty Dalton – rebuffed his advances, married to one of his supporters
- Denise Reeder – apologetic note scanned
As is well known, Hillary was at least partly responsible for the Clinton campaign’s policy of launching personal attacks against all accusers of the saintly Billy. So unless Hillary can find some way to shut down all discussion of the unpleasant topic (good luck with that), she will continue to be dogged with questions about the man she vowed to love, honor and whatever all those years ago. As a self-styled feminist running on the fact that she is a woman, she owes it to the voting citizenry to explain herself.
