IS THE LEFT BREAKING WITH THE CLINTONS?

By Pete Moore On November 14th, 2017

The Atlantic: “Feminists saved the 42nd president of the United States in the 1990s. They were on the wrong side of history; is it finally time to make things right?”

Chris Hayes, MSNBC: “As gross and cynical and hypocrtical as the right’s “what about Bill Clinton” stuff is, it’s also true that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against him.”

The NYT: “I Believe Juanita”

Politico: “Years of excusing Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct suddenly seems morally indefensible.”

… and so on.

Twenty years too late, Bill the Rapist is thrown overboard (now that he has no campaigning or fundraising value).

  1. ofc Bill has never been convicted of a crime, so right there in the header just reveals the alt-rights disdain for even basic facts let alone truth . Must be a very lonely place .

  2. Agreed Pete. It’s merely convenient for liberals at this point. They smeared Bill’s victims at the time and for decades afterwards. A bunch of pointless virtue signaling by a pack of craven hypocrites.

  3. The conservative women who’ve accused Roy Moore of dating, molesting and sexually assaulting teenage girls should be believed as well.

    Today. Not twenty years after the fact when it’s convenient for conservative hacks.

  4. Now that I think about it…Clinton’s accusers coming forward so many years later suggests a deep state hit.

  5. I’m pretty sure they came forward at the time, and that Clinton didn’t stain that dress twenty years late.

  6. Hey, if you want to believe some victims of politicians but not others, go for it.

    Not a good look though.

  7. It is a fair complaint that Clinton’s reprehensible behavior was largely excused. That doesn’t mean the Moores of this world should get a pass.

  8. ofc Bill has never been convicted of a crime,

    True. Just because he did it doesn’t make him guilty.

  9. Clinton didn’t stain that dress twenty years late.

    That was a sleazy affair between adults.

    Lewinsky did not want to come forward at all – you Newtie Republicans dragged her.

    Juanita Broadderick took some time to come forward. She initially very much didn’t want to.

  10. Clinton, like Trump, was accused of rape, but never legally charged.

    Their status is identical.

    They are presumed innocent in the eyes of the law at the moment, along with Weinstein.

  11. Commies –

    I’ll say it for you.

    Bill Clinton is a rapist. The Left covered it up and then smeared his victims. The Right was right.

    You’re welcome.

  12. Juanita B denied a rape in an affidavit. I am not sure he’d get convicted for that. But he was certainly a sleaze like Moore.

  13. Would this be happening if Hillary had won? Of course it would – for leftists are decent, principled, and impervious to the corruption of power 😉

  14. I Republicans 13, from the Apostle Hannity

    Believest the worst of all thy political opponents

    Assume complete innocence and/or evil plot when our lads are accused of anything.

  15. Hillary is a sleaze.

    No one defends her the way you boys defend Trump and all his works to the death.

  16. Pete couldn’t care less what Climton did with how many women. Pete wants Clinton hung out to dry for being a “Commie” . If Bill had been a tax slashing, state shrinking, Libertarian hero he could have fiddled with every teenage cheerleader In the country and Pete would have still have waved his own Pom-poms for him.

  17. correct colm but our erstwhile hero/patriot saviour of the airwaves is wayyy beyond shame .
    Instead They do rallies and marches like poland .. and that’s about it .. we say its ugly, but they say its pretty .. take your pick , I call it a shovel 🙂

  18. Now that I think about it…Clinton’s accusers coming forward so many years later suggests a deep state hit.

    Magnificent Daphne.

  19. Evangelical Women Speak Out Against Roy Moore
    impressive as they usually rally round the conservative guy .

  20. True that, Colm.

    Pete has decided to throw his moral compass to the wind.

    I don’t know why, but it’s deeply disappointing.

  21. Jude, you marginalized Clinton’s accusers on another thread.

    Political tribalism goes both ways and you appear to be equally guilty.

  22. Clintons accusers have been there from day one.

    What we are watching is as many dems can scramble out of the way of the shitstorm of falling Anvils that are about to start raining on them.

    If the Republicans maintain power which is very likely it will be because the only thing more fucked up than the Republicans are the Democrats.

  23. That’s completely untrue

    Juanita Broderick made her accusation about 20 years after the alleged incident.

  24. The Juanita Broderick accusation came in the middle of President Clinton’s second term, 20 to 21 years after the alleged incident

    So the most serious accusation did not happen on day one of anything

  25. In the world of politics there is very little honest reactive concerns purely relating to the sexual behaviour of office holders. Most reactions from other politicians, commenters, media groups and individuals and lay commenters is based more on political affiliation than anything else.

  26. Yes, Pete, the Left is breaking with the Clintons.

    Clintons are getting older, less power without govt. position to leverage, and Hillary is not likeable.

    Without the albatross of Bill Clinton’s sexual aggression, the Democrats will be free to pretend that they have a “moral high road” and can better seek to destroy Trump with innuendo and false accusations that he is a sexual predator, or something.

    also, they’d like to run a winner in 2020 – not a loser like Hilary.

    well, that’s how I see it, at least.

    Colm, me lad, form those words into stone and arrange them in some prominent place.

    There are few people, like mahons, who condemn them all equally (or like me, who forgive across the board.)

  28. Meant to put a smiley or something in there at the end; but sure ye know what I mean.

  29. In fairness, you need to be a bit of a dope to think that the Clintons are ” the left ” and that Bone Spur Trump is in any way patriotic or conservative.

    Both are part of grifter dynastic corner-cutting families, in it for themselves, alone.

    They’re not the same, but they’re all the insiders, all part of the nation’s problems.

  30. Agreed Phantom.

  31. The Clintons are generally centrists, and they share Patrick’s love of military meddling in foreign countries . If he had thought the matter through, he would have been campaigning for Hillary in 2016

  32. No doubt his association with Trump got Clinto more voters among his neighbors.

  33. They’re not the same, but they’re all the insiders, all part of the nation’s problems.

    Possibly, but you fail to address the reasons as to why Trump came about

    In her powerful new book, “Nomadland,” award-winning journalist Jessica Bruder reveals the dark, depressing and sometimes physically painful life of a tribe of men and women in their 50s and 60s who are — as the subtitle says — “surviving America in the twenty-first century.” Not quite homeless, they are “houseless,” living in secondhand RVs, trailers and vans and driving from one location to another to pick up seasonal low-wage jobs, if they can get them, with little or no benefits.

    The “workamper” jobs range from helping harvest sugar beets to flipping burgers at baseball spring training games to Amazon’s AMZN, +0.68% “CamperForce,” seasonal employees who can walk the equivalent of 15 miles a day during Christmas season pulling items off warehouse shelves and then returning to frigid campgrounds at night. Living on less than $1,000 a month, in certain cases, some have no hot showers. As Bruder writes, these are “people who never imagined being nomads.” Many saw their savings wiped out during the Great Recession or were foreclosure victims and, writes Bruder, “felt they’d spent too long losing a rigged game.” Some were laid off from high-paying professional jobs. Few have chosen this life. Few think they can find a way out of it. They’re downwardly mobile older Americans in mobile homes.

    During her three years doing research for the book, conducting hundreds of interviews and traversing 15,000 miles, Bruder even tried living the difficult nomad life; she lasted one workweek. I recently interviewed Bruder to learn more about the lives in Nomadland and what the future holds for these people:

    I’m currently reading this book and it is harrowing what’s happening in the wider US away from the Bubbleboys…..

    “Linh Dinh’sPostcards from the End of Americais a collection of some of the most brilliant observations penned on the terminal decline of the American empire. He gives a voice to those rendered invisible by a bankrupt corporate press. He has an unflinching honesty, refusing to romanticize the poor while also writing with great empathy about their lives. He lays bare the predatory evil of corporate capitalism, the death of liberty engendered by our security and surveillance state and the human cost of our system of inverted totalitarianism. He would make George Orwell or Joseph Roth proud. There are few writers in America I admire more.” Chris Hedges, author ofWages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt

    Many people are but one salary payment away from losing it all so……
