Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton tweeted out one of the more ironic tweets in recent political history.
Wait for it . . .
Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported. https://t.co/mkD69RHeBL— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 23, 2015
"Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported"... except for when her husband commits the act. Then it's a "vast right-wing conspiracy." Here is a list of all the sexual assault survivors that Clinton tried to discredit.
Broaddrick went on NBC's Dateline in 1999 and told NBC News correspondent Lisa Myers that then-President Bill Clinton raped her during a gubernatorial campaign stop at Little Rock, Arkansas in 1978. She and Clinton had planned to meet for coffee one day for a professional business meeting, only to have Clinton asked to meet in her room. Broaddrick agreed. Whe he entered, he suddenly began kissing her.
"I first pushed him away and just told him 'No, please don’t do that,' and I forget, it’s been 21 years, Lisa, and I forget exactly what he was saying," Broaddrick said. "It seems like he was making statements that would relate to 'Did you not know why I was coming up here?' and I told him at the time, I said, 'I’m married, and I have other things going on in my life, and this is something that I’m not interested in.'"
She described what happened next in graphic detail:
Then he tries to kiss me again. And the second time he tries to kiss me he starts biting my lip … He starts to, um, bite on my top lip and I tried to pull away from him. And then he forces me down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen but he wouldn’t listen to me. … It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.’ And that’s when he pressed down on my right shoulder and he would bite my lip. … When everything was over with, he got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at the moment and he walks to the door, and calmly puts on his sunglasses. And before he goes out the door he says ‘You better get some ice on that.’ And he turned and went out the door.”
On Aaron Klein's weekend show "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" on Sunday evening, Broaddrick told Klein that Hillary Clinton knew about the evil act her husband had committed. Broaddrick attended a Clinton fundraiser three weeks after the alleged rape occurred since she was in "a state of shock and denial." A friend of hers had driven the Clintons to the fundraiser and the entire conversation among them was about Broaddrick.
"And so then about that time, I see them coming through the kitchen area," Broaddick told Klein. "And some people there are pointing to me. He goes one direction and she comes directly to me. Then panic sort of started to set in with me. And I thought, 'Oh my God, what do I do now?'"
Hillary Clinton and Broaddrick exchanged brief pleasantries, and then Clinton said to her, "I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate the things you do for him. Do you understand? Everything you do."
Broaddrick said she was "shell-shocked" and left after that exchange.
"What really went through my mind at that time is 'She knows. She knew. She’s covering it up and she expects me to do the very same thing,'" Broaddrick said.
Before Broaddrick told the story in 1999, Clinton "threatened her in person."
Willey has claimed that Clinton sexually assaulted her during his stint as president.
She went to him to ask him for a White House job, since she needed the money after her husband, Ed, was being investigated for embezzlement. What happened instead was that Clinton "fondled her breast and placed her hand on his clothed, erect penis in the Oval Office."
The UK Daily Mail provided a transcript from a 1998 CBS News interview with late correspondent Ed Bradley in which Willey graphically explained the incident:
WILLEY: He took the coffee cup out of my hand and he put it on a bookshelf, and – and – he – this hug lasted a little longer than I thought necessary, but at the same time – I mean, I was not concerned about it. And then he – then he – and then he kissed me on – on my mouth, and – and pulled me closer to him. And – I remember thinking – I just remember thinking, 'What in the world is he doing?' I – it – I just thought, 'What is he doing?' And, I – I pushed back away from him, and – he – he – he – he – he's a big man. And he – he had his arms – they were tight around me, and he – he – he touched me.
BRADLEY: Touched you how?
WILLEY: Well, he – he – he touched my breasts with his hand, and, I – I – I – I was – I – I was just startled. I was – I was just –
BRADLEY: This – this wasn't an accidental grazing touch?
WILLEY: No. And – then he – whispered – he – he – said in – in my ears that, 'I – I've wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you.' And – I remember – I remember saying to him, 'aren't you afraid that somebody's going to walk in here?' The – and, he said – he said, 'no. No, I'm – no, I'm not.' And – and then – and – and then he took my hand, and he – and he put it on him. And, that's when I pushed away from him and – and decided it was time to get out of there.
BRADLEY: When you say he took your hand...
BRADLEY: ... and put it on him...
BRADLEY: Where on him?
WILLEY: On – on his genitals.
BRADLEY: Was he a – aroused?
"She believed what happened for sure. She just chose to ignore the plight of all of his victims, thus enabling him to continue to abuse and rape women in the future," Willey told the American Mirror.
At the time of Willey's interview, Clinton released an ad that said, "I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault. Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have a right to be heard, and you have a right to be believed. We’re with you."
Willey was appalled.
"She’s a lying pig. I cannot believe that she had the gall to make that commercial. How dare she," Willey said. "I hope she rots in hell."
No doubt Willey has similar thoughts about Clinton's tweet.
"Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported."
The hypocritical Hillary Clinton
It was Jones's lawsuit in 1994 that eventually led to the revelation of Clinton's affair with then-intern Monica Lewinsky. Jones met with Clinton in a hotel room in 1991 when he was governor of Arkansas; she was a clerk for the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission. She hoped that meeting him would lead to a "promotion." Instead, this incident happened, according to her deposition: (emphasis bolded)
Mr. Clinton then unexpectedly reached over to me, took my hand, and pulled me toward him, so that our bodies were close to each other. I removed my hand from his and retreated several feet.
Mr. Clinton approached me again, saying 'I love the way your hair flows down your back' and 'I love your curves.'
While saying these things, Mr. Clinton put his hand on my leg and started sliding his hand toward my pelvic area. I did not consent to him doing this. He also bent down to kiss me on the neck, but I would not let him do so.
I exclaimed, 'What are you doing?' and escaped from Mr. Clinton's reach by walking away from him. I was extremely upset and confused and I did not know what to do. I tried to distract Mr. Clinton by asking him about his wife and her activities, and I sat down at the end of the sofa nearest the door.
Mr. Clinton then walked over to the sofa, lowered his trousers and underwear, exposed his penis (which was erect) and told me to 'kiss it'.
Jones believed that Hillary Clinton knew what happened.
"If she is for the everyday person why did she not stand up for the women when she knew what her husband did?" Jones told the Daily Mail. "There is no way that she did not know what was going on, that women were being abused and accosted by her husband. She knew what was happening and just to ignore it. It was a political relationship and suited them both."
A 12 Year-Old Child
Hillary Clinton defended a 41-year-old child rapist whom she believed was guilty–and laughed about it.
The Washington Free Beacon uncovered an audio recording in the 1980s of Clinton discussing the case, in which Thomas Alfred Taylor was accused of raping a 12 year-old. The girl, who was not identified in the story, was taken to a bowling alley with Taylor, who was a friend of her family, and two other unidentified males. Taylor drove the group to a "weedy ravine" where he raped the girl.
Clinton's tone was "casual and complacent" about the case.
"I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs," Clinton said, laughing.
Clinton's defense of Taylor involved personally discrediting the girl, saying she was "emotionally unstable" and had previously made false accusations against people. Taylor eventually pleaded to "unlawful fondling" of a child, and was sentenced to only one year in prison. Taylor received two months off that sentence for previous time served in a county jail.
Clinton claimed that while she was uncomfortable taking the case, she did it as a "favor" to the prosecutor, Mahlon Gibson. Gibson's story, however, was different, as he claimed that she was appointed by a judge to take the case and tried to get out of it.
As an attorney, Clinton certainly had to defend her client as well as she could. What is disturbing, however, is her tone in the recording and the fact that she does not mention how the child was affected by the incident.
Clinton's tweet is offensive, since she has made a whole career while ignoring female victims.
