...but not necessarily denied.
After more than a decade of silence, Juanita Broaddrick has come forward again with her allegation that she was raped by Bill Clinton while he was Arkansas Attorney General. Prompted by Hillary Clinton's hypocritical contention that all alleged claims of sexual assault are to be uncritically believed, Broaddrick is also reiterating that she was pressured by Clinton to keep quiet about it. You can bet the main stream media will do everything it can to avoid/ignore/suppress this story, but that's going to be hard to do if Broaddrick continues to press her case.
Broaddrick's tweet --
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73....it never goes away.There are two parts to Broaddrick's account. First is the violent attack on the low level employee by the depraved misogynist wielding his stature as a high level government official to gain her trust. (Bill) Clinton's despicable act was a classic example of rape as an act of power and control. One he's repeated numerous times (though not always with the same level of brutality). Then there are the sinister cover-up actions of his wife. More than Bill's enabler, Hillary was his co-conspirator, seeking to silence his victim with a not-so-subtle threat of retribution. (For details see the links below).
Just as Barack Obama's qualification for the presidency extended no further than his skin color, Hillary's sole qualification is her gender. Broaddrick's narrative undercuts Clinton's phony "empowerment of women" meme. It also obliterates the Democrats' fiction of a GOP "War On Women". No two people are waging that war more forcefully than the Clintons.
What a marvelous thing it would be if the perpetrators of this decades old outrage finally received their comeuppance: a denial of their desperately yearned for return to the White House. Not sufficient punishment for their crimes of course, but not bad either.
Brietbart has the story --
She slammed Hillary as “disgusting” for allegedly attempting to silence Broaddrick years ago while the Democratic frontrunner insisted in a recent campaign ad that women have a right to be believed if they accuse men of sexual assault.
“I thought, that’s the most disgusting thing,” Broaddrick told Breitbart of Hillary’s ad. “She tried to silence me.”
“I’m 73 years old, Aaron. Why would I want to bring this on myself other than to do right?
And for those distrustful of conservative reporting, the left wing outfit Vox.com has a surprisingly honest and complete accounting of the Broaddrick affair.
Added 1/9 -- Jonah Goldberg's take on Hillary's Bill problem --
Whereas Bill was supposed to be Hillary’s “not-so secret weapon,” he’s now a liability. It’s schadenfreudetastic to watch liberals forced to choose between the Scylla of the Hillary campaign and the Charybdis of the feminist project.
Of course, liberals are mad at . . . conservatives (and Donald Trump) for pointing it out. I particularly love the subhead on this Slate piece. “The right hopes to turn the feminist consensus on rape against the Clintons.” Ah yes, those terrible conservatives, how dare they take feminists seriously!
