WASHINGTON, Jan. 5, 2016 — Former President Bill Clinton spoke to a group of sympathetic women at New Hampshire’s Nashua Community College on behalf of wife Hillary. “We fell in love,” began his fairytale, “and I thought she was the most amazing person. She could have written her ticket to go anywhere she wanted. All she was really interested in was providing legal services to poor people.”
Instead, the currents of history swept the legal social crusader into the top spot at the U.S. State Department, where she served as an intermediary for a shady Russian uranium consortium, among others, who later contributed large sums of cash to the foundation bearing the Clinton name.
When Bill Clinton concluded his speech, a female reporter from ABC News sheepishly asked, “Donald Trump has said your past is ‘fair game.’ I’ve got to ask you, you keep coming up on the [campaign] trail with him—is it [your history of sexual harassment] fair game?”
A stunned Bubba paused, waving his hands as if to erase the question from the air, “The Republicans have to decide who they want to nominate. I’m trying to tell … the Democrats in the country that I think Hillary would be the best president. I think there is always an attempt to take the election away from the people, so I’m just going to give it to him [Trump].”
Donald Trump 1, Clintons 0.
The previous day, New Hampshire State Rep. Katherine Prudhomme-O’Brien (R) attempted to ask Hillary a pointed question concerning husband Bill’s alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick.
“You are very rude, and I’m not ever going to call on you,” said the imperious Hillary.
The mainstream media were at first disinterested in what O’Brien had to say. But some nameless soul uploaded a short video clip to the Internet that is making the rounds on social media.
“I was a Democrat, but I became a Republican because of this,” said O’Brien, pointing at Hillary, “because of what I saw happen in the Clinton years—the hypocrisy of the so-called women that fight for women.”
O’Brien later told CNN she is a rape survivor.
“The rest of the country expects us here in New Hampshire to vet these candidates. We’ve got to do it. What’s the point of a New Hampshire primary if we don’t?” she told the New Hampshire Union Leader.
National Organization for Women (NOW) vice president Chitra Panjabi said, “We are again painfully reminded that we live in a reality of rape culture. For many who have studied sexual assault and violence against women, the trajectory of these allegations comes as no surprise. Rape culture supports rapists, while discrediting and silencing survivors—particularly when significant power imbalances are involved.”
Panjabi was referring to a different Bill: Bill Cosby.
“This president was our best option in ’92,” said NOW president Patricia Ireland to the Los Angeles Times during Clinton’s 1998 Senate impeachment trial. “This president was the best option in ’96. But we never thought he was the answer to our dreams.”
That may be what O’Brien defines as “the hypocrisy of the so-called women that fight for women.”
But you might be excused for calling it liberal “rape culture.”
