I don't think so. A few Hillary Clinton supporters seem to believe that one must be a Republican to find Hillary Clinton's disingenuous remarks about "Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed and supported" to be ironic in view of Bill Clinton's previous behavior. Not so. I didn't support Hillary Clinton before, voted for Barack Obama and I have a perfect right to train a spotlight on both Cilnton's hypocrisy.
From the Dallas Morning News
I won’t be voting for any conservatives in 2016, but it must be said that liberals who refuse to hold the Clintons to account with regard to the use of sex and power are abandoning some of our most important progressive principles.
For those who don’t remember — or weren’t born yet — Bill Clinton has a sordid sexual history with many different women. It is a past that some media still describe as “marital infidelities.” However, honest reporting about victims’ allegations warrants a much stronger word.
Juanita Broaddrick accused Clinton of sexually assaulting her in a hotel in the 1970s; he denied it, and no criminal or civil cases resulted. He also denied sexual harassment claims by Kathleen Willey, a White House volunteer aide, and former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones (although he reached an out-of-court settlement with Jones). And then there was his “inappropriate relationship” in the Oval Office with intern Monica Lewinsky.
At the time, Clinton defenders dismissed these stories as “bimbo eruptions” or as“trailer park” women trying to shake down the Clintons for money. Hillary Clinton called Lewinsky a “narcissistic looney tune,” and according to reporter Carl Bernstein, she worked to silence the true stories of many women who had been sexually involved with her husband.
Now I understand that conservative websites might also be against Hillary Clinton, but for different reasons. That doesn't lessen the need for Democrats to consider what it means when Clinton shouts down a meeting attended who wants to bring up her hypocrisy regarding Juanita Broaddrick. Or does Clinton believe in freedom of speech only for her but woe to any Democrat who doesn't want her to be president? (I'm also a woman, and there's that, I don't automatically become part of the Women for Clinton club, I'm going to vote for Bernie Sanders.
As the article concludes
If Hillary Clinton is serious about valorizing the stories of those who claim to be victims of sexual violence, she should immediately stop trotting out her husband on the campaign trail as her primary surrogate.
And if she continues to do so, each of us ought to hold them both to account, regardless of our hopes for this election.
p.S. This is certainly not water under the bridge. I remember at the time how skeevy Bill Clinton was, and how shocked I was when he finally came clean that he had been having sex with Monica Lewinsky. Didn't know there were 2 other prominent Republicans who were also *dogs* at the time, too. As the article above points out, Hillary Clinton worked to help keep these women quiet. It's no wonder people do not trust Hillary Clinton.
