The Bill Clinton Effect: Why Liberals Treat Women Worse

billclinton

News of rampant sexual harassment at a leading progressive public relations firm seems to have surprised some on the Left: How can enlightened liberals, so staunchly committed to women’s equality and progress, allow old-school sexism and abuse of power to persist? How could FitzGibbon Media, which represented MoveOn.org, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and the AFL-CIO, have a CEO sending text messages asking for dirty pictures from female underlings?

Conservatives, of course, shouldn’t start throwing stones: No doubt, there are plenty of cads in every political party. Yet progressives really shouldn’t be surprised that such behavior exists in liberal enclaves, and, in fact, there’s reason to suspect there may be more mistreatment of women by the Left than the Right.

It’s a phenomenon I call “the Bill Clinton effect.” President Clinton isn’t just another example of a prominent pol who habitually cheated on his wife with many women, including those on his staff. Clinton showcased how those who normally police behavior and work to penalize men for mistreating women will excuse men aligned with them politically. In other words, Clinton revealed that liberals can expect to get away with a lot more in terms of abusing women than conservatives.

Young progressives may only know a whitewashed version of the Clinton scandals, in which rabid conservatives tried to make a mountain out of a consensual-affair molehill. Yet the undisputed facts of the Lewinsky affair reveal a clear and classic example of a powerful man abusing women under his power and creating a hostile work environment: Clinton was a powerful executive having sexual relations with a 22-year-old intern working in his office, whom he rewarded with a taxpayer-financed job and other special treatment. None of the interns working alongside Monica got cushy job offers post-internship. That alone is supposed to be a giant red flag for those concerned about equal treatment and a harassment-free workplace.

But, of course, that was just the tip of the iceberg; Clinton was having his affair with Monica in the midst of an ongoing investigation into his alleged sexual harassment of a state employee (Paula Jones) during his time as Governor of Arkansas. Other women also came forward with allegations of harassment and even assault. Clinton lied about his affair with Lewinsky, at first suggesting she was delusional, both to the public and then when testifying under oath as a part of that sexual harassment suit.

Liberal women’s groups are supposed to frown on men who smear women and undermine the legal process of sexual harassment suits, and take accusations of sexual assault seriously. Yet President Clinton—a good Democrat who supported abortion rights and other feminist sacraments—was largely given a pass. Sure, some feminists murmured their disappointment with Clinton’s behavior and mouthed platitudes about Paula Jones

deserving her day in court. But their criticisms were perfunctory at best. Mostly, they stood by Clinton’s side, defending him and remaining silent as he lied and slandered the women who accused him.

Compare this to the treatment of Justice Clarence Thomas. Even if one assumes that every accusation made by Anita Hill is true, Justice Thomas would at most be crass and a little boorish, but very minor-league in terms of sexual harassment compared to Clinton. Yet women’s groups and the liberal media pounded Thomas, almost derailing his Supreme Court nomination, and to this day ensure that his name is synonymous with sexual harassment.

Given these examples, it would make sense that liberals would feel freer to abuse women than their conservative counterparts. Conservatives have to assume that the press and the establishment women’s movement will exact as mighty a punishment as possible for any misdeed, while liberals can expect far less blowback. Moreover, conservatives, who are consistently bashed as part of a “war on women,” are terrified of anything that might legitimize that charge. Thus they are motivated to deal harshly with fellow conservatives who threaten to further entrench that reputation with the public. In contrast, liberals enjoy a comfortable advantage with women and reputation for caring about women’s issues, so are likely to be less vigilant about policing their own ranks.

Given this history, it’s no big surprise that, as the liberal online website Vox.com put it, progressive have a sexual harassment problem. This exposé, however, may hark the beginning of a turning point. After all, while it took a semen-stained dress for Monica to be believed by the liberal press, in today’s age of omnipotent technology, women have a lot more hard evidence to use against men who harass them. They don’t need to convince Newsweek to run a story, they can take their evidence to the public on their own. Men everywhere—even liberals—may find that the potential fallout isn’t worth it, and behavior, finally, might really change.

    Leftists have a disconnect in their brains because they talk peace,love, and caring but their leaders and heroes have either been genocidal maniacs or cheerleaders for it. They call the hypocritical application of their most deeply held beliefs “Nuance”, and jettisoning anything one might call “ethics” or “morality” the greatest crime to a leftist is hypocrisy and not the act itself. Much is forgiven when you’re fighting a life-or-death battle with horrible conservatives.

  • Diggsc

    It’s not just sexual harassment that the Dems get away with. Hillary’s top ten biggest donors so far are banks and corporations. Leftist SJWs’ biggest donor is an avowed Nazi (George Soros). Leftist heroes are anti-capitalist and anti-democratic. NONE OF THIS is questioned by the press, since they hold the same values. When Democrats pine about student debt, the press never asks them about the effect that more and more gov’t money available to students has had on tuition, which has outpaced inflation by multiples of ten. They only cheer when a Dem says he’s going to up the gov’t input. Same with the minimum wage debate.
    Until we get a real Fourth Estate instead of a Fifth Column, Dems are never going to answer for their War on Women, their war on small business, their war on education, their war on freedom.

    Why are the names of Juanita Broaddrick and Lisa Myers missing from this article?

  • Frododlb

    This is a great article. “Men everywhere—even liberals—may find that the potential fallout isn’t worth it, and behavior, finally, might really change.” If only that were true.

    But it is not the fact that Bill Clinton was having affairs that really bothers me so much as what Hillary did or tried to do to those women that accused him. That really bothers me. If Hillary is OK Bill getting some on the side that is her choice to make. But to run on a platform that includes Women’s rights after what she did and tried to do to these accusers of her husband is open and fair game to criticism and as much as I hate to admit it maybe Trump has a legitimate point in making this an issue in the 2016 election.

    • LeighLeigh

      Amen…..I have been saying this……Feminism was dead to me when this train wreck occurred…..especially juxtaposed against Clarence Thomas false accusations……I was the same age as Lewinsky working in my first job going thru issues of my own, when all this unfolded……..Feminism had told young girls like me that women could enjoy sex without consequences with whomever we like…..girl code??? Did not exist. If you get pregnant leading your lifestyle that empowered you, just abort it. Nobody was going to prevent you from having what you wanted, especially some antiquated marriage construct…….then when all those women and witnesses came forward and reports of Hillary in charge of her War on Bill’s women and children everywhere giving head to one another because the President said it was not sex, made me realize that Feminism was a lie….it was only for Democrats with a penchant for abortion and lesbianism…..that was it……Feminism died and exposed itself as a club for a bunch of weak women who truly needed men to enable them in their politics.

      • Aaron1960

        REMEMBER also that the left fails to mention that Anita Hill followed Clarence Thomas from Oral Roberts U to DC when he took a position there. Hill should have been relieved but stayed in contact with Thomas, not the other way around.

    Another story that should be added to the list:

    Bill Clinton Rape Accuser’s Story Aired

    Quote:

    Juanita Broaddrick told her story to a national television audience last night, saying she did not tell authorities 21 years ago of her contention that Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her because “I just don’t think anyone would have believed me.”

    In a gripping account punctuated by sobs, the Arkansas woman told “Dateline NBC” that in her Little Rock hotel room, Clinton suddenly “turned me around and started kissing me, and that was a real shock. I first pushed him away. I just told him ‘no.’ . . . He tries to kiss me again. He starts biting on my lip. . . . And then he forced me down on the bed. I just was very frightened. I tried to get away from him. I told him ‘no.’ . . . He wouldn’t listen to me.”

  • John Tyler

    If someone is a liberal progressive, they are simply above the law; they know it, EVERYBODY knows it.
    The liberal media will ignore it or barely mention the issue and they will go out of their way to defame and convict the victim.
    The judicial system – judges, prosecutors, etc., – are mostly liberal progressives and are usually on a FIRST NAME basis with the culprit and attend the same cocktail parties in the elite part of towns.
    The plain fact is that the liberal progressive elites enjoy the same advantages as 18th century European royalty; they control and/or influence EVERYTHING.
    You can expect Clinton type behaviour to continue because the culprits will suffer no consequences; just look at Bill Clinton who, despite his transgressions STILL gets invited to speak and attend conferences with the world’s hoi polloi. His transgressions have not affected him one iota – and they never will.

      Conservative money men the Koch brothers have ideas different than liberals and we get: “They’re evil! They should be imprisoned! They’re destroying the world!”

      Liberal money man George Soros has literally bankrupted nations through currency manipulation, among other Bond villain-esque activities and, for the reasons you mention, he gets a total pass.

    There’s another factor in this formula: a sense of accountability to God, family, and friends. Conservatives are more likely to be bound by moral traditions than leftist both because they have a stronger sense of right and wrong (especially regarding “sexual morality”) than the left, and because their own institutions and cohorts share that stronger sense of right and wrong and are willing to judge them accordingly. The left has no such sense of shame.

    • ThomasA

      There is also a certain “ends justify the means” ethos on the left. Since lefties believe they hold the moral high-ground in all areas above the evil conservatives, any action they take must be in the service of the greater good and therefore isn’t really wrong. This is part and parcel of the left’s moral relativism.

      This is the same sort of hypocrisy that makes cops think it’s OK to speed in their off hours, makes heads of charities think it’s OK to award themselves $400,000 salaries, and made generations of democrats look the other way about the crimes of the communists.

    It boils down to Hegel’s lie Maxim: “No proposition can be proved true” used to gain political advantage. Either by feminists or tyrants… doesn’t matter. Broken down, a Hegelian Progressive (they are all Hegelian) can therefore say a) good is good, b) evil is evil, c) good is evil or d) evil is good… because the real goal is political advantage because Hegel says it is okay to lie and kill & whatnot.

    Therefore, Progressive worldview education (K-12, university, law school, J-school) must be defunded, as it really is not education but brainwashing to live by and under crazy tyrants who will enslave us, drive us crazy with their dumb-ass logic and eventually kill us. Replace the pedagogy with “1776-Tragic-Liberty” which is based on James Madison’s true maxim, “No man can be the judge of his own case.” (No room for crazy, illogical feminists in that philosophy! Just good women who believe in good and eschew evil. Just good men who believe in good and eschew evil.)

    Therefore, all these Hegelian, Progressive Hydra Heads of Idiocracy must be done away with by the only way: Defund, defund, defund Progressive education!

    Christopher Hitchens, who was a hard leftist on everything except the Iraq war, concluded that Bill Clinton was guilty of raping Juanita Broaddrick.

    A chapter in Hitchens’ book NO ONE LEFT TO LIE TO is titled IS THERE A RAPIST IN THE OVAL OFFICE?

    He concludes the chapter this way:

    “What are the chances that three socially and personally respectable women, all three of them political supporters of Mr. Clinton and none of them known to each other, would confect or invent almost identical experience which they did not desire to make public. And how possible would it be for a network of anti-Clinton rumor-mongers to create, let alone ventilate, such a coincidence? The odds that any of these ladies is lying seem to me to approach zero; their reasons for reticence are all perfectly intelligible.”

    After covering up for her husband, Hillary is just as guilty as he is.

    When the sexual encounter with MsLewinski came to light, it wasn’t so much that a powerful man abused a young woman’s trust, or that a young woman played a powerful man for her own betterment, but that the event happened in the Oval Office and the man was the POTUS.
    No matter what the base instincts of men and women, we expect – no demand- that for the four or eight years they occupy the WhiteHouse and the seat of the highest elected office in the US they conduct themselves and their affairs honorably.

      No one acknowledges the enormous harm this scandal wrought on societal morality by the message it sent to children and the masses of unthinking adults.

  • Brhurdle

    I have a little different view. Instead of a belief that they can can get away with it, liberals are motivated by the belief that they are entitled to indulge their desires as compensation for their superior empathetic, humanitarian leanings. It’s only fair that they be allowed to diddle the help since they do so much that is good in the world.

      I agree to an extent. But I have to say that is a very sick and sickening bunch of rationalizing on the part of many of them.

There are too many that continue to enable the bad behavior.

  • boats48

    FYI-It was Not a “consensual affair molehill” between Bill Clinton & Monica Lewinsky that got him impeached. It was Bill Clinton’ pattern of predatory sexual behaviour with Lewinsky, Flowers, Jones, et al! If the the truth were known Bill Clinton ranks with Bill Cosby (another liberal).

    • iVillageIdiot

      Clinton was impeached for perjury (lying under oath) and obstruction of justice in his attempt to cover up his adultery in the WH with Lewinsky. The “affair,” whether consensual or not, was simply the predicate act about which he lied and obstructed. Contrary to the MSM’s false narrative, Bill Clinton’s impeachment wasn’t about “sex” at all.

      • Eva_Galley

        But his $850,000 sexual harassment pay out to Paula Jones certainly was. You people need to stop making excuses for this wh&re monger.

        • iVillageIdiot

          Don’t get me wrong. Bill’s undoubtedly a sexual predator and misogynist. He and Hillary are the absolute dregs of humanity. My point was that by framing his impeachment as “just about sex/fellatio,” rather than the serious crimes of perjury and obstruction, the MSM helped Clinton essentially walk away from the whole Lewinsky scandal relatively unscathed. I make no excuses for Slick Willie whatsoever.

        • Hominid

          He didn’t make excuses, you moron – he set the record straight.

            Fck you too.

      • John Tucker

        You are absolutely correct. The Monica dress evidence gave credence to Paula Jones’ claim. His courtroom lies were the basis for the monetary award and stripping him of his law license. If Broderick’s charge of rape(whether true or not) had not been withheld by the media before the vote to impeach/convict, he may very well have been impeached/convicted. We will never know. More importantly, with regard to Hillary, we know she helped promote the “bimbo” narrative.

        • iVillageIdiot

          The Hillary aspect can’t be stressed enough. She mercilessly defamed Bill’s accusers as tramps, bimbos, liars, gold-diggers, etc. to protect her meal ticket and gateway to her own quest for undeserved positions of authority and power. Contrast that with her current claims as feminist and champion of victims of sexual abuse/harassment. Her conduct past and present are beneath contempt. She must be made to answer for them.

          • rich poorman

            And of course to hide her own sordid sexual history.

    • Hominid

      Nope! It wasn’t that either. It was lying under oath when he denied “having sex with that woman.”

      • boats48

        Yes, the lying was the immediate excuse Congress used, but you’ll have to admit Bill Clinton was an embarrassment to this nation. Frankly, other presidents had affairs but Clinton put the icing on the cake. At the time, it seemed there was a woman, somewhere, daily coming out with a story of abuse or harassment. The lying is the Clinton way. Hillary has proven to be best at it.

  • Steve_in_SoCal

    Yes, I agree that conservatives may have pushed the envelope “chasing” Clinton.

    But it’s important to remember that 1) the media covered for him (even now – re: interview with Trump of “alleged” misconduct by Clinton); 2) 1998 was a totally different media environment so Clinton lied and withheld information; 3) a whole cottage industry formed to protect him – regardless of his guilt (moveon.org); and finally, 4) it was about the perjury.

    Assuming this was a “one-off” event with Clinton was preposderous, but the left kept saying – it’s all personal behavior. While, it was simply a boorish cad using his power of the purse string, gifts, travel, jobs, etc., to lure an intern and getting caught – the real issue was the lying and perjury which supported the effort to destroy Ms. Lewinsky.

    Remember the “leaked” info that Ms. Lewinsky was “unstable” and other such things? And Carville saying (about Ms. Jones) that you can’t be surprised by what you find when you drag a $100 bill thru a trailer park?

    Those actions far exceeded what was in the end a consensual affair. So when liberals talk about equality, it’s Animal Farm: Some are more equal than others.

    • rich poorman

      Yep, and that’s why the Arkansas bar pulled his law license, as did the US Supreme Court.

      • Steve_in_SoCal

        Correct. But that’s noise to the MSM. Because he perjured himself on a personal matter in court, it’s more poignant that it was about personal. Not that he perjured himself.

  • Princess

    Everywhere I look, the left is laughing at Trump bringing Clinton’s abuses back to the forefront because they believe the blowback will hurt him in the end. Who thinks that way and how exactly is that processed? Is that even sane? It is okay to assault and abuse women and then have your wife go out there as an advocate for women’s rights? To say all women must be believed when she used every ounce of their mighty power to bring those women down when they admitted that Bill had used them sexually (some possibly criminally)?
    What kind of bubble do these libs live in? The Dem Party best get their act together…the MSM is no longer able to coddle and promote their lies. The gig is up. It is disgusting

    • mike siroky

      They live in a bubble called ‘get power at any cost”. If hypocrisy is needed then so be it. If smearing your conservative opponents with charges of racism or sexism is needed, then go for it. Political feminists are part of the current Democrat coalition. They were effectively silenced during Bill Clinton’s two terms, no matter what he did to women. This shows they actually care more about gaining political power than about women victims they claim to care about.

    • zencycler

      Sure Trump’s remarks will have an effect:

      1) Libs, who would never vote for him anyway, now really really won’t vote for him (net change, zero)

      2) Independents, who were unaware of Hillary’s role in smearing Clinton’s victims in a vicious attempt to discredit them will now shrug off any leftist attacks about Trump or the GOP being sexist that come from Hillary, since Trump can now point to her own despicable and documented acts, that are infinitely more sexist than anything she alleges that Trump or the GOP have done, particularly something as dubious as (bring in the feigned-offense fainting couch” his use of the word “schlonged” – which, yes, in the NYC vernacular does mean “losing badly”, not “penised”.

      So I wonder if Trump just got lucky that the blowback over his use of the word “schlonged” now works to his advantage, or whether he was deliberately setting a trap with that, so he could bait Hillary into making the charge of sexism against him, and thus opening the door to him making hay over the role she played in her husband’s sex scandals.

        Of course Trump was waiting for Hillary to open up the gate for Bill’s sexual indiscretions. It is Trump’s MO. He will even tell you that he doesn’t bring it up or hit first but he will swing back hard.
        It is by far the most entertaining election season EVER in my lifetime.

      • Joel0903

        It means that in other parts of the region as well. Hillary was the Senator from New York.. shouldn’t she know such things? I say this with great sarcasm, for I know her representation of NY was about as involved as President Obama’s representation of IL in the Senate.

    Well, Liberals somehow process that “Black lives matter” to Liberals while simultaneously supporting the abortion of MILLIONS of those Black Lives.

    “Men everywhere—even liberals—may find that the potential fallout isn’t worth it, and behavior, finally, might really change.”

    Well yes, behavior will change to some extent as the more intelligent males will be ultra careful to not leave any evidence laying around (so to speak). But then the more intelligent ones already are. Its the dumb klutzes that get caught.

    But boys will be boys and girls will be girls so don’t expect sex to be eradicated from the “workplace” any time in the foreseeable future.

      “Trump’s history of sexist remarks by noting that he had called women, “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals”

      As he said when confronted with that at the FOX debate, he only called one woman those names. Rosie O’Donnell. It was during a public feud started by Rosie with her making false allegations on the View.

      If you find what Donald says so inflammatory then why do you take them out of context? It would seem that his real words and meanings would be enough if he is what you want people to think he is.

      Why lie to make a point?

  • djaymick

    Here are a few Democratic buddies that have arisen over the past few years. Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged with having sex with minors. Terry Bean, who was charged with having sex with a minor. (He was acquitted because he paid the kid $250K, which the court accepted.). Donnie Ray Williams, the ex-Democratic Senate aide, pleaded guilty to raping two women. He received no time behind bars.
    These are the examples that show you everything you need to know about Democrats and the abuses they get away with. And they do it knowing the media will either bury it or put a rosy spin on it (usually blaming Republicans for bringing it up).

  • hownow

    …lol…Commander-of-Cheats Hillary deploys Semen-Worst-Class Bill…will the liberals’ voting bloc of women join the Clinton War-Against-Women…again?…

    • OWilson

      Yes, because liberals feel it is an honor to be raped by their icon, Bill Clinton.
      (And that’s only the guys 🙂

  • If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, what can men expect of her considering this:

    In a speech to the First Ladies’ Conference on Domestic Violence in San Salvador in 1998, she said, “Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat. Women often have to flee from the only homes they have ever known. Women are often the refugees from conflict and sometimes, more frequently in today’s warfare, victims. Women are often left with the responsibility, alone, of raising the children.”

    See the sexism? Here’s how I responded:

    Clinton must understand that women do not become war’s primary victims by surviving genocides and being driven away from their homes to squalid camps where they have the hope, however dim, of rescue and restoration. War’s primary victims are, and have always been, the men who are killed — the husbands, fathers, and sons of the women whose lives generally are spared.

        my guess is that RUMP’s pile of used Kleenex is Yuge compared with that of the Clintons. That’s regardless of what the Kleenex was used for. I will agree that, for certain uses of Kleenex such as top secret clearances, Hillary has the larger pile.

    • Joel0903

      Perhaps.. I don’t know.. read the article next time before you comment. The article is NOT about the adultery, but the sexual harassment and the double standard of those on the left about this. Let’s not also forget that Clinton engaged in his affair with Monica while he was supposed to be conducting the business of the nation. Would YOUR boss let you continue your job if he or she found out you were getting oral sex while you were on a call with an important client or business partner? President Clinton admitted to having sexual relations with “that woman, Ms. Lewinsky” – using his term when he denied it repeatedly under oath – while on the phone with Boris Yeltsin (President of Russia at the time) to discuss the on-going war in Chechnya. There were also other similar incidents while on the phone with European leaders conducting the “business of the nation”. Nice attempt at diverting from the subject, however.

      • OWilson

        Not to mention the risk of discovery and blackmail.

        • TexasRules1

          I asked Dems if they were concerned that Monica might be a spy for a foreign government, they shrugged. I asked them what if she were a GOP spy, they became very concerned.

          • penelopeo

            Probably because that was the more likely scenario.

      • penelopeo

        Yeah…I did read it. During the time Clinton was being impeached (and no, I’m not defending him, his actions were slimy), several of those who were prosecuting him were cheating on their wives at the same time. Yeah yeah…it was about the lying and not the sex (except if you read the lurid details of the Starr report, it was all about the sex).

        As for ‘on the job’…..again, I don’t condone what he did. And the best indication of what his employers (voters) wanted were his poll numbers, which went up after Americans thought Republicans went too far on what they called a personal issue.

        • manapp99

          Lying under oath. To a judge.

          • penelopeo

            For which he paid. Did you not read the part where I agreed what he did was slimy? What Republicans did was slimy too. They were so interested in damaging Clinton, they didn’t mind exposing all the lurid details to embarrass the country too. I don’t know if you’re old enough to remember, but the US was a laughingstock for all the mock outrage from the right surrounding sex. I was a GOP voter up until 1992. After I saw how it was so easy for Repubs to embarrass their own country for political gain….I never voted for another one again.

            And now in the age of Trump…..they’re doing it again.

          • manapp99

            Paid? He got away with it. You lie to a judge under oath and see what happens to you.

            If the rest of the world was upset with us for going after a President who lied under oath, pulled down his pants and told Paula to “kiss it” and used his influence as a boss to take advantage of a female worker then so be it.

        • SteveAR

          But it wasn’t just Bill Clinton. Hillary Clinton has aided and abetted every cover up of every one of Bill Clinton’s sex scandals for over 35 years. The issue is whether or not Hillary can actually criticize Trump when she herself has done far worse to women than Trump has.

          • penelopeo

            That is the right wing meme. Blame Hillary for Bill’s transgressions.

            1) It was not Hillary’s responsibility to defend the women cheating with her husband. Did you expect her to invite them to tea?

            2) The unspoken subtext of that attack is that we can blame the wife for what the husband does. And that won’t play well with women, who know better.

            3) So in FACT Hillary has NOT done far worse to women, and that’s a ridiculous line of attack. Trump cheated on his first wife, there are rumors of cheating on his current wife. The first wife accused him of rape…under oath, and he got his girlfriend pregnant.

            Anyone who conflates what Hillary did….which was merely to disrespect the women who disrespected her by having sex with her married man, ……with the cheating and possibly more that Trump did doesn’t have the credibility to lecture on the subject.

          • SteveAR

            “Blame Hillary for Bill’s transgressions.”

            She’s never done anything to get him to stop being a serial sexual predator, a serial sexual harasser, a serial adulterer, or a perjurer. Nothing. She used his behavior, and his name, to win a seat to the U.S. Senate and try to win the White House. She’s been part and parcel of everything Bill did going back some 35 years. And somehow Trump is worse? What planet are you from?

          • rich poorman

            No, I would expect her to leave him and file for divorce. Instead, she showed her true character as a woman willing to do or say anything for power.

          • manapp99

            Plus she actively tried to ruin the victims of Bill’s transgressions.

          • MostlyRight

            I suggest you do some research into just what Hillary did in each instance of a “bimbo eruption”. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you haven’t. If you do and come away from it still standing by her, you are a monster as well. Goodbye.

        • MostlyRight

          I didn’t read anyone asking if you condone Clinton’s behavior. I think we want to know if you condemn it. Condemn it to the point where he and Hillary have no right to claim the mantle of feminists, champions against the supposed Republican “war on women”, or even holding public office on the tax payer’s dime. I don’t think anyone condones an affair with a 22 yr old and then lying about it during testimony LOL. Nice try though.

          So, do you CONDEMN the Clintons, and if so how far?

        • Joel0903

          And would you not consider it the height of hypocrisy for the Wife of said individual to declare there was a “war on women” by her opponents when she was one of the primary architects of the attacks on the women her husband was harassing sexually?
          Did you read the depositions from the original Paula Jones suit (one of the women Hillary Clinton lambasted as being a “slut” after she had proof that the accusations were true)? Do you recall the Clinton administration arguing before the Supreme Court (and thus other previous courts) that the President cannot be sued by private citizens for actions taken before he was President because such a suit might “tarnish” the office? Slimy indeed. The taxpayers had to pay for those court hearings, by the way.

          Perjury in the Jones’ depositions. Perjury in sworn testimony before Congress. Full knowledge on the part of Mrs. Clinton -by the time of the Jones’ depositions – that the allegations were factual. Attacks by Mrs. Clinton, and others on her behalf, on the victims’ reputation and character.

    • TexasRules1

      It’s not the adultery, it’s the reaction to it. Remember how NOW could not bring itself to call Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica sexual harassment, though it’s a textbook case?

      • penelopeo

        Then why is the meme that Clinton is a rapist rather than a liar?

        We both know this is all about politics and facts need not apply. But back to THIS article. It’s silly, and juvenile to ignore the troves of data on right wingers engaging in sex acts, to write an article about how ‘liberals are worse’. This writer should start taking herself more seriously if she wants others to.

        • manapp99

          The author covers that:

          “Conservatives, of course, shouldn’t start throwing stones: No doubt, there are plenty of cads
          in every political party. Yet progressives really shouldn’t be
          surprised that such behavior exists in liberal enclaves, and, in fact,
          there’s reason to suspect there may be more mistreatment of women by the
          Left than the Right.”

          • penelopeo

            That one statement sums up quite nicely why this writer shouldn’t be taken seriously. She has to ignore a whole lot of right wing cheating from Gingrich to Vitter to Duggar to make such silly claims.

            And having an affair with a woman isn’t ‘mistreating’ them. It takes two to tango and any woman who knowingly has an affair with a married man has no one to blame but herself for the fallout.

          • TexasRules1

            No, it just sums up why YOU don’t want to take the article seriously

          • penelopeo

            Do you deny that there are MANY right leaning men who have cheated or sexually harassed women?

            THAT is the point of this article, not Bill Clinton per se.

        • TexasRules1

          Clinton is both. He has raped a number of women, sexually assaulted others and fooled around with a bunch more. Remember Bill wagging his finger on lying to our faces on national television?
          Bill’s affairs in office are an embarrassment and humiliation for our country, his other actions are crimes and he should he judged harshly.

          And Hillary was not just his enabler, but his co-conspirator. Hillary hired Jack Palladino and other private detectives to threaten and intimidate Bill’s women fro coming forward.

          • penelopeo

            FALSE. There were TWO accusations of rape and prosecutors didn’t believe the allegations and declined to pursue charges, including Republican special prosecutor Ken Starr, who did not believe Broaddrick’s story after she changed it so often. She couldn’t even remember when the event supposedly occurred and changed her story several times. She even recanted a signed afidavit when the FBI questioned her on behalf of Ken Starr.

            In this country, we are innocent until proven guilty and not one prosecutor thought they had enough evidence to pursue charges. So when you say he raped a number of women, that’s only what you want to believe and not based on facts in evidence.

            Bill’s offenses were indeed an embarrassment to the country. But it was through the GOP actions that we learned the lurid details. They must take responsibility for the level of embarrassment too. In the end, they went too far and created sympathy for Clinton, who remains the most popular pol today.

          • TexasRules1

            FALSE. There is a huge difference between NOT believing the allegations and bringing charges in a he said/she said situation with litlle hope of a conviction. And Juanita Broaddrick never reported the rape to cops.

          • penelopeo

            But she did talk to prosecutors….WHO DIDN’T BELIEVE HER.

          • rich poorman

            Well, we’re about to be treated to a replay of the whole sad history of liberalism’s poster couple. Only this time, there is no media monopoly to suppress and devalue evidence, and the Clintons no longer hold power to intimidate and threaten their accusers. I predict Bill will have a convenient “health crisis” soon.

            I realize that being liberal means never admitting you were wrong, but that position will become harder to maintain as the female victims re-emerge to tell their stories.

            Bill Cosby got away with it for a long time, too.

          • penelopeo

            Bill Cosby admitted to drugging women in a deposition.

            There was no ‘media monopoly’ (a silly term) suppressing the Starr report and its lurid details, so yours is a straw man argument.

        • rich poorman

          “Right wingers” who behave badly are driven out. Bill Clinton is enabled, defended and rewarded, as is his crony wife. That is the difference. Moral relativity and situational ethics on display.

          • penelopeo

            FALSE. David Vitter wasn’t driven out. Mark Sanford wasn’t driven out. Newt Gingrich wasn’t driven out for cheating.

            Please think before you post. I could give you dozens of examples of right wing cheaters who kept their jobs.

          • manapp99

            Not when it comes to sexual harassment in the work place. Bill had power over Monica as her boss. She was less free to spurn his advances than would a person not employed there.

          • penelopeo

            Not true. If the actions are not unwelcome, they are not harassment. Monica, by her own words, engaged with Clinton willingly. She even bragged about it.

      • TexasRules1

        A classic case of sexual harassment if there ever were one. Tammy Bruce, the head of the LA chapter of NOW, was fired because she called out Bill Clinton.

        • penelopeo

          Sexual harrassment requires a component of the powerful over the powerless. Monica wasn’t a cabinet member, but an intern. And by her own words, she engaged with Clinton voluntarily.

        • MostlyRight

          Right. And then the treatment by the media of the Clinton allegations and facts are compared to the Justice Thomas allegations and facts, at which point she makes the case that liberals feel they can get away with more, and then do.

    It’s really very simple, here’s all you need to know: LIBERALS ARE LIBERALS FIRST!!! Their adherence to liberal dogma, orthodoxy and agenda trumps their race, their gender, their sexual preference, their nationality, their profession. This is why NOW could not criticize Bill Clinton nor support his victims. It’s why the NAACP would not support Clarence Thomas. It’s why climate scientists will manipulate of manufacture data.

    What is interesting but still law were the liberal courts giving men a free pass to literally expose themselves to a woman without consequences so long as it was the first time he did so. That was the legal basis the courts used to dismiss Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit where she alleged that Clinton dropped his pants and tried to sexual engage her. Yes, liberals have and will continue to give the Clintons’ a pass regardless of their high crimes and misdeamanors.Based on what is undisputed in the public record, both Clintons should be in prison.

    Share this across all social media platforms because the liberal filth deserve to be humiliated again and again. Low information news like CNN and MSNBC aka MSDNC could careless about telling the whole story or anything at all.

    Yep. The Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinski affair was when I finally gave up on the Democrat party. No, it wasn’t “just about sex”; it was about someone in power being give a free pass against everything the Left had preached to everyone up to that point. I’ve had sexual harassment and diversity awareness courses repeatedly crammed down my throat in the corporate world, the military, and throughout college. I’ve seen careers ruined based on simple allegations, and yet Bill Clinton walked away after having violated everything we were told was sacrosanct. They all just circled the wagons around that guy. He may have been a scumbag, I guess, but he was their scumbag. That’s all that mattered.

      I remember the height of feminist hypocrisy being reached on that when Juanita Broderic brought up the groping charge, and a prominent feminist defended Clinton by saying “well he only groped her once, and when she objected he stopped, so what is the problem, that is proper behavior, not improper behavior”. It was very obvious no repub would ever get a pass like that. I remember Rush had a field day with that one, saying the feminists had now officially passed a “one grope rule” where any man can grope a female underling, with no consequences, as long as he only does it once, because according to that feminist it is now official feminist doctrine on correct behavior.

  • conservativechick

    Every liberal “cause” is merely a front to further the ultimate goal of leftist power. Environmentalism, feminism, black lives matter. Democrats couldn’t care less about women, or the environment, or black lives. Every group is a front designed to gain power for leftists and nothing more. This is why they are so consistently inconsistent and hypocritical. Because the “issue” is never the issue, the issue is always power.

    • Rhetorical Brutality

      Regressives would dig up their late mothers and trample their remains repeatedly if it meant gaining more power over others. And no, that’s not an exaggeration.

        That is exactly what Obama did in regards to winning the White House and when selling Obamacare. He lied about having to talk to his mother’s health insurance provider, claiming they weren’t paying their fair share of her cancer treatment. It turns out the health insurance provider paid exactly what they were supposed to.

    • luvitall21

      That’s right. They form victim or unionized “cause” groups and front them, such as AARP, NOW, NEA, NAACP, La Raza, etc. Under the guise of representing these groups, they represent only the democrat party.

    “In other words, Clinton revealed that liberals can expect to get away with a lot more in terms of abusing women than conservatives.”

    They can expect to get away with a lot more of every type of law breaking or immorality. Ted Kennedy killed a women, probably while drunk driving. Al Sharpton owes the IRS millions. Occupy Wall Street riots destroying whole sections of cities. Black Lives Matter’s lies about the police with impunity. Liberal college students think they should be able to kick people out of college based on an accusation alone, and they also think they should be able to limit free speech. On, and on, and on.

    • Straightthinker

      Yes. It isn’t, in my opinion, a Bill Clinton effect. He is simply another symptom of the bigger problem. It’s because liberals feel “superior” and “enlightened,” so, therefore, they can do no wrong. Rules are for mere mortals, not special, powerful people who cast their intellectual blessings upon the world. When a (Clinton) feels the urge to have sex with an underling, it doesn’t occur to him that he is a mere mortal – he, instead, seeks to satisfy his (denied) primal urges and reaffirm his power. They LOVE the power.
      Furthermore, they believe deep down that women (and blacks for that matter) aren’t their equals, thus requiring special treatment, all the while screaming how racist and sexist they aren’t to cover their deep-seated guilt.

    • bobw-66554432

  • luvitall21

    I would like to see the formulation of a “Blue-Dress Brigade”, an ever-changing and growing group of women who regularly show up at Clinton rallies whenever Bill appears. They would wear blue dresses and Monica berets, singing Tammy Wynette’s “Stand by Your Man” at appropriate times. It would be hard for Hillary to play her gender card.

    • pinetree51

      Fair enough. But only if a parade of mistresses and hookers show up at Trump rallies.

      • richard40

        Probably a good tactic, but it would not work well at Cruz rallies. I have never heard any hint of any scandal in the Cruz marriage.

        Go ahead and try that. It will blow up in your faces. Don’t try to equate ANYONE with President Bill Clinton. He was impeached, he sullied the Oval Office, and he has a list of accusers that reminds us of Bill Cosby.

  • bobw-66554432

    It’s interesting that “Progressives” spend so much time accusing anyone who disagrees with them of racism, sexism, and any number of other “isms”.

    After watching a number of these so called “progressives” closely, including ones in my own family, it became apparent that anytime they accused someone else it was because that is what they were thinking themselves.

    Or, it is the way they wished the other person was going to think or act because that allowed them to: (1) feel superior, and (2) have a “reason” to dislike or attack the other person.

    “Projection” I believe it’s called. So, perhaps it is time to stop calling them “Progressives” and instead call them by the more appropriate “Projectives”…

    • Excellent observation – not only are they projecting their own BS on conservatives but most progressives suffer from “pathological altruism” which allows them to rationalize absolutely anything because the ends are always justified by the means.
      Because they believe they have the moral high ground, are for diversity, equality, etc. they can do and say what they want.
      Progressivism is the real disease infecting our Republic.
      Progressivism = Totalitarianism disguised as the soft hand of paternalism.

    I started reading the article knowing that it wouldn’t tell us why “Liberals Treat Women Worse” – and I was right. It cites a PR firm and a consensual affair as examples of the premise, but there is no mention of “why” this occurred, or how this was “worse” (worse than what?). The usual conservative gibberish.

    • Summer Tyme

      • Smitty

        Again, where is the supposed reason that liberals that women worse, which is the supposed premise of the article? The article doesn’t even attempt to answer that, it just talks about dirty texts at a PR firm and a consensual affair 2 people had, and that’s it. Are conservatives really so stupid as to not notice that there’s nothing actually in the article that addresses the premise of it? Really?

      • Smitty

        Why do you think conservatives beat their wives?

  • SonofaGip

    JFK, Bill Clinton, Gary Hart, John Edwards, Ted Kennedy, Hugh Heffner, Bill Cosby, Howard Stern, and David Letterman are all philandering liberals who have disrespected their wives and used their power to take advantage of much younger women in demeaning ways. I sometimes wonder if predatory men become politically liberal so they can use it as a defense mechanism when they encounter criticism.

    • Smitty

      Oh stop it. I could list an equal amount of Conservatives who are sexist as well, not even bringing up evangelicals like Pat Robertson, Jimmy Swaggart, etc etc. Sexism is rampant on BOTH sides. Only you team zombies try to make this into a contest, as usual.

  • SonofaGip

    Many liberals are posting about how the author didn’t sufficiently give enough reasons on why liberals treat women worse. Let me give it a shot. Liberals, in general, have worse morals than conservatives. They tend to think any behavior is okay: abortion, lying, drug use, prostitution, homosexuality, transgenderism, etc. Adultery, sexual harassment, and sexual assault are behaviors but liberals believe in moral relativism, i.e, it’s okay to sexually harass if you’re pro-abortion. So perhaps liberal men cannot comprehend that certain behaviors ARE wrong or they do realize such behaviors ARE wrong but can be trumped by supporting the greater good such as taxing the rich or giving people free stuff.

    • Smitty

      You’re seriously trying to claim that liberals think homosexuality is less moral than conservatives do? Please – anyone who can read knows that conservatism itself is nothing more than an attempt to hide being gay. Most conservatives are either openly gay or closeted – how anyone could read the news and not be convinced of that is not plausible. How many gay conservative politicians are there? Probably more than straight conservatives – and the same holds true for the conservative constituency in general.

But you think they’re going to give an honest answer in a survey about something they’re in denial of? Hahahaha.

            “Why don’t you enlighten all of us by posting a link to these quotes?”

            I provided the quote from a White House reporter and a link, demonstrating he was wrong. He then dismissed her as a nut. I certainly agree with that assessment.

Rather than admitting this fact, you and he try to change the subject.

      Let’s look at Trump:
      Married wife #1
      Got mistress
      Divorced Wife #1
      Married former mistress as wife #2
      Got new mistress
      Divorced Wife #2 to marry new mistress.
      On wife #3.

      • UNCLE

        “..still married.”
        What’s your point? Hitler died with his wife, great guy, huh?

        • pinetree51

          My point is that Trump is in no position to lecture anyone on marriage fidelity.

          • UNCLE

            He isn’t. The discussion is “sexual harassment”.
            You are a good little Gruber, aren’t you?

          • pinetree51

            “You are a good little Gruber, aren’t you?”

            Ah, here come the insults right on cue.

          • UNCLE

            I’ve got tons of them. Keep talking stupid.

          • pinetree51

            You would have been laughed off the stage by the class in my college debate presentations with these remarks by now and the prof would have given you an “F”.

            Now, give us all a nice, juicy insult on your way out the door.

          • UNCLE

            Still stings, huh? That was years ago. Let it go.

          • johnleehooker

            It’s simply a reference to a comment made by Gruber attributing the passage of obamacareTAX to the “ignorance of the American voter”. Now, which party’s voters do YOU think Gruber was talking about?

          • Bud359

            “Gruber” is an insult. Do you know why?

      • 608Chicago

        Don’t forget the rape allegation that was ‘recanted’ only as Trump entered Presidential politics.

      • richard40

        Another reason to go with Cruz, I know of no infidelity lurking in his past.

      • davefromsherwood

        So, in your opinion, does an affair disqualify a person from being president? Or are you saying that since Trump got a divorce, it disqualifies him but Hillary did not and so it doesn’t disqualify her?

        • pinetree51

          “So, in your opinion, does an affair disqualify a person from being president?”
          No, of course not. It simply disqualifies you from presenting fake outrage about such things for political purposes.

          • davefromsherwood

            No fake outrage coming from the left, you say?

          • pinetree51

            “No fake outrage coming from the left, you say?”
            I didn’t say that.

  • GameTime

    I agree with this article’s author. We all saw it for ourselves, the denial, the attacks on Lewinsky, the female Pentagon employee who blew the whistle on Lewinsky’s affair was demonized, the outright refusal of women’s rights groups to take Clinton to task, the media doing their best to discredit every single instance of Bill’s bad behavior and blame it on witch hunting GOP, and it went on and on.

    It all started becoming crystal clear by 2000 when Hillary ran for U.S. Senate that Hillary Clinton’s anger wasn’t because Bill made a fool of her for playing the traditional role of ever-faithful, martyr wife/mother, but rather total volcanic eruption at Billy Boy for messing up her chances for being president herself.

    Just the other day, Savannah Guthrie, NBC morning show of nothing hostess, in discussing the matter with Donald Trump, indicates to Trump that Bill Clinton’s affairs were “alleged.” Yes, that’s right. In the mind of the Democrats and the media who love them, Bill Clinton may, or may not,”.. have had sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.” Only thing missing is the finger waving while she says it.

    • SonofaGip

      He is on tape admitting he had an affair with Gennifer Flowers. His relationship with Monica Lewinsky, which he admitted to, was also an affair.

      • GameTime

        Well make sure Savannah gets the Memo.

      • Smitty

        News Flash: Adults, with the emotional level of adults, don’t care about other people’s sex lives. Grown-ups have other things to concern themselves with. You sound like a gossipy little drama queen talking about other people’s personal lives. Oh, and Bill had a 65% approval rating the day he was impeached, and his wife is a shoe-in for 45th POTUS. Do conservatives ever actually grow up, or ever actually learn anything? Apparently not!

        • IAEH

          I care, if its rape.

          • Smitty

            When it is, let us know. Meanwhile you conservative men are CONSTANTLY getting caught sexually harassing other men. Now THAT’S disgusting.

      • johnleehooker

        her husband did work for the Clintons – SURPRISE!

    • jackbenimble333

      And then there is the long trail of corpses. The Clintons play for keeps.

  • 608Chicago

    Is the Carrie Lukas effect then using a loaded question as click bait for a poorly written and argued article which is garbage as the mistreatment of women doesn’t know a single political home which is better or worse than the other?

    It’s all abhorrent. Dems and the GOP. Rich and poor. And not enough of any of the perpetrators are prosecuted. Write a meaningful article about that if you care, rather than flogging this horse skeleton with your poorly fashioned rhetoric.

    And no, Hillary Clinton absolutely should not be President.

  • Skep41

    Except Bigmouth Bill aint running this year. The wife who ran his ‘Bimbo Eruptions’ campaigns is. Lots of ‘A Type’ male executives are pigs. Some are discreet, some not so much, but as Anthony Quinn once said in ‘Viva Zapata’ “What’s the use of being a general if you can’t act like one?” Ugly, but true. Now lets talk about a wife who sent paid flacks and private investigators out to smear, harass and intimidate her husband’s voluntary and involuntary accusers. ‘A Type’ male pigs are common but this is a rare breed of wife. And one who describes herself these days as a champion of women’s rights. Right. A recent book made the bestseller list describing the Clinton’s marriage as a total fraud, with Bigmouth Bill only showing up at the family mansion when The Little Woman is out fundraising and usually in the company of a female given the nickname ‘The Energizer’ by the Secret Service. Do real women, the kind who would divorce or murder their husbands for one affair, really want to go through another ugly, nasty four years of this? I doubt it. Now Hillary has an opponent who doesnt seem to be willing to keep his mouth shut about it…she might be able to crush Sanders for the nom but the Dems should be very worried about her ability to win the White House.

    • pinetree51

      “Dems should be very worried about her ability to win the White House.”

      Not if the Republicans are clueless enough to allow Trump or Cruz to get the nomination.

      • Skep41

        I dont agree. Cruz would be a tough sell but Trump has shown the ability to think outside the box…an ability sorely lacking in the Clinton Campaign. Trump does surprisingly well with demographic groups the Dems take for granted; groups who have suffered under ‘Hope and Change’ while the Dem’s rich fat-cat cronies have prospered. If it’s Hillary vs Trump Trump will win.

        • Smitty

          Hahaha, sorry – there are a lot of really stupid people in the US, but not that many. Hillary already has 257 electoral votes locked up, and Obama won 10 of 11 swing states in 2012. Trump needs 40-50% of the Hispanic vote to win – and it’ll be a miracle if he gets 5%. And women will turn out to vote in record numbers to finally get to vote for a woman POTUS. Hillary by 380-400 electoral votes, guaranteed.

        • pinetree51

          “If it’s Hillary vs Trump trump will win.”

          Two points:
          1) If this is true, then why are so many Republicans scared sh*tless about Trump getting the nomination plus some conspiracy theorists going so far as to believe that Trump is a Dem mole tasked to wreck the Republican brand on purpose?

          2) You may want to check this:

        • richard40

          I think Cruz would be an easier sell than Trump. Cruz is already within the margin of error according to RCP, while Trump continues to trail by 5. What worries me about Trump is he is so unpredictable with his mouth, I am worried he will be another Todd Akin and say something incredibly stupid to blow it. That does not mean Trump cant win as well, Hillary is an incredibly weak candidate, but a Trump play is a lot riskier. My other worry is even if Trump wins, he wont actually govern as a conservative, while I know Cruz will.

      • richard40

        Trump may be behind by 5-10 against Hillary at the moment, but Cruz is within 2, the margin of error, as is every other repub candidate. And that is while they are still campaigning against each other, once Clinton starts taking real fire she will wilt quickly. I remember in 2012 commentators were constantly talking about how much baggage from the past Newt had, but compared to Newts suitcase, Hillary has a huge steamer trunk.

        • pinetree51

          “Hillary has a huge steamer trunk.”
          Which has been opened many times over the years.
          I am not a big Hillary fan (I don’t like political dynasties) but after a 9+ hour grilling at the latest Benghazi hearing, she emerged pretty much unscathed.

          • jackbenimble333

            She is upside down in the approval ratings. That is pretty damaged. She was in the high 60s before her book tour a year ago.

    • johnleehooker

      bill is a pig and hill’s been in the sty with him for decades

      • pinetree51

        And Trump is on his third, former mistress wife.

        • UNCLE

          No law against that. There are, however, laws against sexual harassment. I am aware that Progs distain laws that are prosecuted equally, but you fascists aren’t in control yet.

          • pinetree51

            Oh, now I am a “prog” and “a fascist”.

            Your crystal ball needs cleaning. I am an Independent who has voted for members of both parties based on issues and specific policies and proposals. Crazy idea, huh?

            So there are no conservative-leaning independents?
            You can’t be serious.
            My dad (now well over 80) was a lifelong Republican, and just registered as an Independent since he thinks (like me) BOTH parties are corrupt and will vote for the policy and circumstance and not drink either party’s Kool Aid.

          • jackbenimble333

            The two go hand in hand. Fascism is a BIG government political philosophy. Conservatives hate big government.

          • Meredith Rogan

            Then why do they increase the deficit routinely, even going so far as to turn 4 years of surplus into $1T in additional debt for a useless, unwinnable war?

          • jackbenimble333

            You are confusing conservatives with Republicans. Lots of Republicans are just as progressive as Democrats; they just want to be in control of how the big government money is spent.

            Bush was a progressive. We got “No Child Left Behind”, “Medicare Prescription Drugs”, two attempts at amnesty and a whole lot of crony capitalism. Conservatives were furious about all of that stuff.

            The Republican Party is the vehicle that conservatives are trying to drive but we are only marginally successful at it.

        • retsubcpo

          True but never has he been charged or has it even been mentioned that he abused, used his position or or downright assaulted any woman. Bill has and did. And none of his 3 wives ever attacked any other women that he was having an affair with. Hillary did. She sent attack dogs on all of them!

          • Meredith Rogan

            Bullshit.

        • richard40

          Another reason to go with Cruz, as far as I know his marriage has always been solid.

          • Smitty

            Cruz will make it as far in the primaries as Bachmann and Santorum did, and Rubio has zipper problems, according to the right-wing media. That leaves Trump – and Trump will not only lose but take the whole ticket down with him. Guaranteed.

          • Meredith Rogan

            Cruz is clearly gay. That marriage is not solid.

      • IAEH

        Well said!

  • Avory † Blonde

    This phenomenon is merely another example of the flagrant dishonesty and hypocrisy of the left. They could care less whether or not some woman gets harassed or even raped. The only thing they want is to use their faux outrage at incidents such as what Clarence Thomas or Bob Packwood allegedly did as a selective weapon to use against Republicans/Conservatives. Had any Republican president done one-tenth of what Bill Clinton did to a number of women, he would have been tarred and feathered and ridden out of Washington on a rail.

    • Smitty

      Hahaha, conservative men are just as bad – except they sexually harass other men.

      • richard40

        Except for one big difference, when they get caught, they get disciplined, normally by their own, while if a leftie gets caught, his fellow leftists will continue to protect him.

        • Smitty

          Actually the big difference is that liberal men sexually harass women, while conservative men sexually harass other men. Conservative men don’t sexually harass women – they’re gay.

          • richard40

            Repub sexual harassment of males is much rarer than dem sexual harassment of women, so stop with the false moral equivalence.

          • Smitty

            Yup – but that’s only because there’s less conservatives than there are liberals. Per capita, there is much more conservative gay harassment than there is liberal straight harassment. Liberals aren’t liberal to cover up being straight. Conservatives however are conservative to cover up being gay, and to cover up hating the opposite sex.

          • UNCLE

            Keep posting Smitty, you’re the poster boy for Prog insanity.

          • Smitty

            Hahahaha, you know it’s true. Conservatism is a beard for homosexuality. There’s more gay republican men than straight, and they both LOATHE women. Here’s today’s example:

  • Wmn04Ken07

    I’d say that Clinton ushered in the “it was only sex” meme. No biggy.

    The very thought of him defiling the Oval Office with a starry eyed young women is bad enough. Worse still is the thought that while all of this was going on his teenage daughter was not far away. That is abhorrent. Disgustingly creepy.

    Other presidential predators came before and were protected by the media. In Clinton’s case, they protected him by closing the circle around his past and present perverted behavior. By doing so, they are complicit by aiding and abetting all that he did, doing or will do.

    The women were worthless. Worth less than the reputation of a very sick person who used and abused them. All hail his power to do so and get away with it over and over again.

    Hmmm. Yesterday some old celebrity who has been accused of treating women as chattel was indicted. Could some old president be shaking in his “what goes around, comes around” loafers?

    • Smitty

      “The very thought of him defiling the Oval Office with a starry eyed young women is bad enough.”

      Hahaha, for a conservative man, the thought of any heterosexual behavior is icky – because they’re gay, and conservatism is just a cover for being gay. Every post by the conservative men on this forum merely reaffirms that.

        Smitty, I am woman. Hear me roar! Odd that you would jump to that conclusion.

      Actually it just proves that Bill never did anything illegal, because if he had, he’d have been charged too. Or you really believe that a republican DA in Arkansas wouldn’t prosecute Bill Clinton if he had any chance to do so? It’d be the biggest career-boost in US political history. The fact that NOTHING like that has ever occurred proves that Bill never did anything illegal. You failed pretty badly with that post, son. Think it through a little better next time.

        I guess you have your story and you’re sticking with it.

        At some point, however, you are going to get very tired walking in that boring circle.

        You can wish the women away, but they are real and they serve as a reminder as to how lust or other perverted sexual desires can destroy. You could never relate to what he did, how he did it and his/their treatment of them after he was done.

        There are those of us who had fathers, have husbands, sons and sons-in-laws who did not/do not abuse their vows by becoming a serial adulterer, who have not publicaly besmirched the family name or caused permanent psychological harm to any woman.

        You stand by your man, a very flawed man.

        • Smitty

          “You can wish the women away, but they are real and they serve as a reminder as to how lust or other perverted sexual desires can destroy.”

          HAHAHAHA!!! Just come out and say it – you’re repulsed by heterosexuality, just like most conservatives are, because you’re gay, like most conservatives are. “Perverted sexual desires”? Consensual heterosexual behavior is “perverted sexual desires”? Priceless! You really think that consensual heterosexual behavior causes “permanent psychological harm” to women? To you, maybe. Here’s a clue: Most men and women actually enjoy heterosexual sex, and laugh at your idiotic judgementalism and deranged, unhinged idiotic attempts to make it into something shameful and wrong.

          • Wmn04Ken07

            You have the lingo down. May I assume you are a confused man trying to justify, rationalize and make sense of your conflicted sexual desires?

            We simply can not help you here. I never consider whether a person is a man or a woman or their sexual identity. You have perseverated on the label from the onset. Reconsider to whom you are directing your anger and frustration. I believe it is misplaced.

          • Smitty

            “May I assume you are a confused man trying to justify, rationalize and make sense of your conflicted sexual desires?”

            Actually I’m just laughing at conservatives being repulsed by heterosexuality – and blissfully unaware of what that is saying about their own identities. Combine that with the fact that hardly a day goes by without a male conservative politician who was stridently anti-gay in public getting caught on some gay dating site, and the hilarity is increased exponentially. Being conservative is simply an attempt at trying to hide homosexuality for most conservative men.

          • Wmn04Ken07

            I told you. I am a woman. I have no frame of reference for what you are saying. None.

            I would suggest just living your own life and not worry about what others, gay or straight, are saying or doing if it doesn’t impact your daily life.

            In the end, how we live our life is a choice. By accusing others of having ulterior motives when you know nothing about them or their life, is a waste of time. It’s your choice.

          • Smitty

            I agree 100%. What consensual adults do is no one else’s business. Period. That’s why I’m laughing so hard at the conservative half-wits on this forum who try to pretend otherwise.

            And yes, conservatism more often than not is a cover for being gay.

          • Wmn04Ken07

            Move on. You are beating a dead horse. You do realize no one is listening. It simply becomes noise. If that is your intention, so be it, but the tactic is offensive and it is absurd.

            you love burying yourself in your own hole, huh chief? it’s about predator sexuality, powerful older married man, impressionable young woman. this has nothing to do with “enjoyment” of one form of sexuality or another. do you think you can actually hang up here? hilarious.

          • Smitty

            “it’s about predator sexuality, powerful older married man, impressionable young woman.”

            Hey “chief”, ya know what? Some younger women actually prefer older men, and they’re attracted to those of us who actually have our lives together and can make them feel like they’re not spending time with some conservative loser on welfare. Sorry if you don’t have enough experience with being sexually active to know that, or with not being a loser. This of us with personal experience with younger women don’t mind a bit. And the women sure don’t mind. Don’t like it? Gee I’m so concerned that some dimwit conservative is offended hahaha…

          • Bud359

            Yes, and most Democrats prefer rapists in the Whitehouse while the remaining Democrats look the other way. Why do you give a pass to rapists and their enablers isn’t a mystery – you have no ethical standards. You’re a perfect Democrat

      • joseph pujol

        Bill sent Paula Jones a check for $850K. I haven’t met anyone who thinks he had to do that because he told her she was nice (Hillary claimed they were “dead broke” when they left the our White House. I don’t think the Clintons parted with $850K very lightly). It’s pretty clear he is a sexual predator and there is enough of a prior pattern to come to that conclusion. There is also a sufficient prior pattern to conclude that the leftists are OK with predatory behavior from other leftists, so long as they carry political weight.

      • Bud359

        “Actually it just proves that Bill never did anything illegal, because if he had, he’d have been charged too.” That’s naively stupid – especially when Democrats control the DoJ

          • Bud359

            Ah, so rape victims who choose not to oppose politically-powerful men for fear of retribution were never raped. I suspect in liberal land all those 10yo girls raped by ISIS thugs were never raped as well. Yes, you’ve cleared a lot up – like what scumbags liberals are

          • joseph pujol

            Don’t rejoice too quickly. Since you have now claimed (belatedly) that Bill Clinton should have resigned over the Lewinsky affair (consensual so far as I can tell), now would be a good time to enlighten us on why he had to send Paula Jones a check for $850K (remember Hillary claiming they were “dead broke” when they left our White House), why Juanita Broaddrick claimed he raped her when he was Attorney General for Arkansas and why Kathleen Willey claimed he groped her (on 60 minutes)?

            If you thought Clinton should have resigned, I missed it and still can’t find it in your posts other than your retort above. Mind reading is not a customary talent. What you have posted is “Women are smart enough to want those supporting women’s causes to be in office, even if those men are personally wanting or worse” with “women’s causes” (and we know you speak for all women) identified with Planned Parenthood. Sounds like you are willing, in the proud tradition of Nina Burleigh, to accept WJC’s “deplorable” behavior because he fully endorses your version of “women’s causes”.

    Liberals advocate many things in the abstract, macro sphere that their behavior indicates they don’t believe in for themselves in the practical, micro sphere: public schooling, money for the poor, higher taxes, diversity, androgyny. They’ll avoid sending their kids to mediocre public schools when they can afford it; give less to charity than conservatives, seek to minimize their tax liability like anybody else; live in the best neighborhood they can afford (which will be largely white), and self-segregate among like-minded people. And, yes, lust after and hit on women as much as the next guy.

    Growing up as a liberal in a liberal area of NY, I expected that the South was a hotbed of racism, stupidity and misogyny. After moving dow south as an adult, I was in for quite a shock. There was much, much less of racism and sexism and assorted bigotries there (except for antisemitism, but I was raised in a heavily Jewish area of NY so I probably just missed it). That was one of the first observations that led me to eventually understand how full of hypocritical bullspit and outright denial of reality the liberal belief system is, and led me to grow from a young adult who volunteered for Michael Dukakis’ campaign, to the reliable contributor to the political right that I am today (even though I am no social conservative)

    • Smitty

      Really? The South has been voting solidly conservative republican for the last 50 years – and it’s poorer, and more dependent on the federal gov’t than it’s ever been. And you’re Jewish, but you’re saying that your Jewish neighborhood was a hotbed of racism, bigotry and sexism? And you contribute to the political right, but you’re not a social conservative? My head is spinning trying to figure all that out.

      • morecotwo

        Not surprising. You said a lot of lies. Are you an example of that “Common Core” indoctrination we have all been hearing about?

      • Ysmitty your head is spinning because someone holds a different worldview than you, and your small, peanut-sized brain can’t grasp that someone might actually think for themself as opposed to merely regurgitating the Left’s tired cliches and stereotypes. ,aye someday when you’re all grown up you might understand. People are individuals. Their skin color, gender, or religion doesn’t dictate how they feel about the proper size and scope of government. The Left gets very upset when people they believe to be inferior refuse the help of the “benevolent” big government they support as a cure for all of society’s ills. It’s a clear indication of the rampant racism and culture of hate that the Left embraces.

      • caradoc

        1) Voting Republican is not synonymous with racism. If you take a moment and look at who is telling you it is – media, hollywood, university professors, and liberal politicians – you might notice they are all not only strongly liberal, but have little or no real interaction with republican voters in general. They simply parrot a very self-serving received wisdom

        2) No, I am not Jewish or religious at all. But the area I grew up was. And people of all stripes there – Jew, Christian, black, white, all hve their flaws, like everywhere else. But there is certainly more bigotry of all kinds there. Which is part of why they think republicans must be monsters. After all, liberals are the good guys, right? So if they are racist republicans must, ipso facto, be substantially worse, since they are the bad guys

        3) The political right is not just social conservatives – they actually are no longer a substantial majority of the party at all. As the left has sprinted leftward, people in the social middle and people concerned about government overreach have been struck supporting the alternative and have had a very moderating influence on the party. The right is the real “Big Tent” party now.

        .

        Your opinion of what constitutes Republican voters is so out of touch with reality it moves beyond caricature. That is the result of a very real monopoly on information sources (again, media, hollywood, university professors, grade teachers) has done. You’ve probably never even heard a real argument for a right of center idea, merely a well spun caricature of one. Meanwhile, people on the right hear nothing but liberal ideas and explanations every time they turn on the TV, take a class at a school, or read a newspaper. When all your information is coming from one particular political ideology very far from center, you should wonder about your deeply held assumptions. Whether they are based on accurate information, or information that serves that ideology.

      As one who’s lived in the South (GA, DC, and TN), and in the North (WI and IL), I agree with your observation. The South has a lower percentage of bigots in its major cities because the mixing and interaction among races is more common, and most people I know there seem to me as “get along” types. I think, however, that Southerners who ARE bigoted seem more blatant and extreme. It’s in the North that the worst barriers to integration and equality are found. The bigotry there is more often systematic, and less “personal” (white people tend to interact very seldom with blacks), but the whiteness in suburbs and upper class enclaves is very carefully protected.

    The left is all about creating a rationale for the state to expropriate wealth from the people who create it to give it to themselves and the constituencies that voted them in. A powerful motive. Any lie, misrepresentation, distortion or false vilification is acceptable to the left because their financial incentive is so strong. Things like principle, moral behavior, the Constitution are of no value to them – just words. Claims about any number of buzz words – “social justice” or “racism” or “war on women” are just words to be used to deceive the uninformed, those who do not see what is really going on. That is why they campaign so well – saying whatever works however untrue – and why they are so utterly ineffective when governing (since governing requires dealing with reality to be successful.

    You are just wrong about why liberal democrat members abuse women and the law in general. The liberal democrat supports a feudalism. An all powerful political class who don’t and aren’t required to follow the law. They will give all kinds of excuses but in the end they don’t see their political class as bound by the law because they are the rulers. Their actions and habits show this to be true. Take Benghazi. Hillary’s supporters are aware that 4 men died and she lied about intel and covered it up as well as using her server inappropriately and illegally. They know she did this, they just don’t care. Bill raped women, so what? They were used by Bill but who cares? Why do you bother to bring it up? You could show video and they would be annoyed that did so because they really know it, they just don’t care. The women were there to be used by the leader, how dense are you? Their lives? Insignificant compared to Bill so just shut up. That is why you can’t seem to understand the liberal democrat. They know what happened, they just don’t care and are annoyed that you want to talk about something that doesn’t matter.

        More like “do as I say peasant, and you may not question what I do.”

          The funny thing is, they are wrong about everything, yet think they are smarter than everyone else…..that kind of arrogance is breathtaking.

    Google “nina burleigh bill clinton” to see why left wing women ignored Bill Clinton’s serial sexual predatory behavior., Nina Burleigh covered the White House for Time in the 1990s. It was obvious to those around her she was smitten by Clinton.

    “I’d be happy to give him [oral sex] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal,” boasted former Time magazine White House correspondent Nina Burleigh about Bill Clinton. She made her offer known to Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz when he called to discuss a piece Burleigh penned in the July/August Mirabella magazine detailing her lust for Clinton.

    That lustful piece was published in 1998 as was her interview with Kurtz.

    Evidently, a Dem follows a left wing agenda on abortion, he can do anything to women.

      I’d be happy to give him oral sex, so the killing of babies can continue. Lovely.

    We knew Bill Clinton was trash in the ’90’s. He’s had plenty of time and events since then to thoroughly reinforce that view.
