People on the left insist that they care about women and rape victims but now that the issue has become a problem for Hillary Clinton, they’re singing a different tune.
The far left site Wonkette has gone so far as to suggest that even if Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick, that doesn’t automatically make him an evil person.
This is their take on the subject:
Let’s Talk About Juanita Broaddrick
Buzzfeed has a long, interesting interview with Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who says Bill Clinton raped her in an Arkansas hotel room almost 40 years ago. Maybe this case has always bugged you too, because we are supposed to believe women when it comes to rape. (For the record, I don’t “always” believe women. I think some women are messed up, and some women lie.)
Why did Juanita Broaddrick change her story? ask people who otherwise would automatically answer “rape survivors do that sometimes.” (When Paula Jones’s lawyers came knocking, she told them that nothing had happened, she says, because she wanted it to go away.)…
There is simply no reason Hillary Clinton would have known jackshit about it; Bill Clinton was always lying to her, and she loved him, and she kept believing him when it was long past silly to do so. “Honey, I raped that nice lady” isn’t a thing he would have opened up to her about, and “thanks so much for the campaigning you did for my husband” just doesn’t sound like a threat in any possible universe.
Just because Broaddrick seems irrational about Hillary Clinton’s response doesn’t make her irrational about the rest.
To sum up, I think Bill Clinton could very well have raped Juanita Broaddrick; that it doesn’t make him an evil man, or irredeemable (I’m Catholic; we’re all forgiven, if we’re sorry, and Broaddrick says Bill Clinton personally called her up to apologize). It doesn’t even necessarily make him a bad feminist — you know, later, once he stops doing that.
To make matters seemingly worse, the writer of this Wonkette piece is a woman.
After accusing Republicans of waging a “War on Women” for years now, leftist have discovered that there are some cases of rape which are acceptable.
As long as a Democrat did it.
