Last week Democrat analyst Kirsten Powers, one of the very few last Democrats in the country who isn’t an America-hating communist, made a New Year’s prediction that raised some eyebrows — especially coming from a Democrat.
Powers committed the unpardonable sin for a Democrat on FOX News Sunday, criticizing the godfather of the Democrats — former president Bill Clinton (aka: Slick Willy), predicting that “Bill Clinton’s ‘Bimbo Eruptions’…are going to become problems for Hillary during the campaign.”
Well, Kirsten Powers just expanded on that thought — big time. In fact, she’s leading the charge in making sure that Bill Clinton’s long history of sexual abuse, including rape accusations, are no longer swept under the rug by Democrats and the corrupt Democrat Media Complex — the mainstream media.
In a scathing opinion piece in USA Today, where Powers writes a regular column, Powers powerfully made the case that Bill Clinton’s past sexual abuse should be treated in the same manner as that of another alleged sexual predator — another Bill — Bill Cosby, who finally may be receiving punishment for the over 40 women he has been accused of abusing.
Powers first sets the stage in reminding America (and voters) of the “nuts and sluts” campaign the Clinton Administration launched in order to stop the tide of “bimbo eruptions” — a literal “war on women.”
Much has changed since Bill and Hillary Clinton were swept into the White House amidst sordid tales about the Arkansas governor’s extra-marital sex life.
Back then, a senior campaign aide (Betsey Wright) on a Democratic campaign could utter the phrase “bimbo eruptions” to demean women claiming to have had an affair with Bill Clinton. Today, such utterances would be rightly deemed unequivocally sexist.
It was a time when a top Democratic loyalist (James Carville) unabashedly sneered at Paula Jones’ allegations of unwanted sexual advances by then-Gov. Clinton with the infamous quip, “If you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.” Most famously, there was a young intern named Monica Lewinsky smeared by a senior White House aide (Sidney Blumenthal) as a “stalker.” Blumenthal reportedly also told journalists that the 49-year-old president of the United States had been “the victim of a predatory and unstable sexually demanding young woman,” age 22. The president went on to become one of the most respected men in the world. Lewinsky’s life was destroyed.
Until fairly recently, this kind of treatment was par for the course, especially if a woman had the particular misfortune of being victimized by a powerful man. Complaining women were far too often cast as the cause of their own sexual harassment and even sexual assault. They would be caricatured as voracious sex monsters, mentally unstable bimbos or gold diggers. Or all of the above.
Just ask the other Bill.
Powers next moved on to make the eerily similar comparison between comedian Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton, and that because society has changed, because we now take sexual abuse and rape accusations of women by men in power, much more seriously than we did 30 years ago.
The liberal Kirsten Powers then sticks a fork in Hillary Clinton’s bid to be the first female president of the United States — a thirst for power that would make Bill Clinton the “First Dude” in the White House — a campaign based largely upon her female body parts other than any concrete reason she should be the next president.
The pendulum has swung, and we are moving toward a presumption that women are telling the truth regarding claims of unwanted sexual advances. So much so, that Hillary Clinton recently tweeted, “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.”
If true, then presumably that would apply to Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey, who have accused her husband of sexual assault and perhaps even Paula Jones who claims Bill Clinton touched her without her consent. Notably, in today’s paradigm, feminists argue that accusers should be believed even if they have been discredited. Most recently, in the wake of Rolling Stone’s retraction of its University of Virginia rape story, feminists rallied to the defense of the discredited accuser, “Jackie.” Feminist writer Jessica Valenti insisted, “I choose to believe Jackie. I lose nothing by doing so, even if I’m later proven wrong — but at least I will still be able to sleep at night.” Liberal commentator Zerlina Maxwell argued in The Washington Post that,“We should believe, as a matter of default, what an accuser says. Ultimately, the costs of wrongly disbelieving a survivor far outweigh the costs of calling someone a rapist.”
Of course, Bill Clinton continues to be, along with Barack Obama, the most worshiped of any Democrat in America, despite his sordid past. Hillary Clinton is the leading Democrat candidate to be the next president of the United States, despite her documented history of attacking the female victims of her husband’s sexual abuse.
Ironically, some of their biggest fans are so-called feminists, who have a horrible self-inflicted terrible case of Stockholm Syndrome, standing by the two biggest abusers of women perhaps in American history.
That is going to change, and Kirsten Powers is going to make sure of it.
