The 1990’s “sunshined” the Clinton era of sexual deviance based on charges of rape, physical and verbal sexual harassment, and the worst case of workplace sexual harassment featuring Bill Clinton and a 22-year-old White House Intern working for Chief of Staff Leon Panetta, since sexual harassment was made illegal in academic institutions in Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Progressive-Left Throws Women Under the Bus!
But, due to a successful Progressive-Left campaign, led by Hillary Clinton, to discredit Clinton’s accusers, Clinton and his supporters emasculated (pun intended) the legal rights and degraded woman’s workplace rights and reinforced women’s reluctance to complain about unwanted advances even if it led to workplace sponsored rape. Women’s reluctance to call out their aggressors translated into absolute silence in Hollywood as it was recently uncovered in the Harvey Weinstein (huge Clinton supporter) Hollywood scandals.
Scope of Clinton Debauchery:
Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the Progressive-Left and their Media, adopted the mantra that “It was only SEX”! Really? What if a Republican had been accused by the following as was Billy Bob Clinton?:
- Juanita Broaddrick (AR)- rape
- Eileen Wellstone (Oxford) – rape
- Elizabeth Ward Gracen – rape – quid pro quo, post incident intimidation
- Regina Hopper Blakely – “forced himself on her, biting, bruising her”
- Kathleen Willey (WH) – sexual assault, intimidation, threats
- Sandra Allen James (DC) – sexual assault
- 22 Year Old 1972 (Yale) – sexual assault
- Kathy Bradshaw (AK) – sexual assault
- Cristy Zercher – unwelcome sexual advance, intimidation
- Paula Jones (AR) – unwelcome sexual advance, exposure, bordering on sexual assault ($700,000 Payoff by Clinton)
- Carolyn Moffet unwelcome sexual advance, exposure, bordering on sexual assault
- 1974 student at University of Arkansas – unwelcome physical contact
- 1978-1980 – seven complaints per Arkansas state troopers
- Monica Lewinsky – quid pro quo, post incident character assault
- Jennifer Flowers – quid pro quo, post incident character assault
- Dolly Kyle Browning – post incident character assault
- Sally Perdue – post incident threats
- Betty Dalton – rebuffed his advances, married to one of his supporters
- Denise Reeder – apologetic note scanned
Impact of the Clinton Debauchery
The Progressive-Left were so successful in exonerating Clinton’s despicable behavior that women from all walks of life, in a diverse array of workplaces including politics and Hollywood, feared that they would be designated the “problem” if they came forward to complain about sexual harassment or even workplace rape! The Progressive-Left effectively erased over 20 years of advancements in legally protecting women from workplace sexual harassment or even workplace rape! Then, to add insult to injury, Obama tweaked Title IX of the Education code to force educational institutions to railroad young men out of schools at the mere suggestion that they had engaged in questionable behavior with female students. This hypocrisy is accentuated by the fact that Obama turned a blind eye to his favorite rappers anti-women lyrics, rape of women lyrics, and his buddy Weinstein’s sexual depravity in Hollywood!
The other “great” thing that the exoneration of Clinton ushered in was a message that oral sex, and practically any other kind of sex was OKAY. This has led to an increase in teen abortion and an explosion of Sexually Transmitted Diseases among our youth. IF the President can have sex with a young Intern, then why shouldn’t teenagers be able to do the same thing. After all, Clinton said that “I never had SEX with that woman…”. Oral Sex, and probably other kinds of unnatural sex, was not actually sex according to the most powerful man in the world. And, the Progressive-Left and Hillary said it was “only sex”.
Now, we have “starlets” coming out complaining that they are being abused by Weinstein and practically every other male actor in Hollywood! Well duh! While no women should be subjected to workplace sexual harassment or rape, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? Clinton proved that you would support his aberrant behavior and forgive any kind of indiscretion he engaged in including rape, sexual harassment, and using law enforcement officers to “PIMP” for him! Old Harvey Weinstein took one look at this and said to himself that if Billy Bob can get away with it, I can!
Thinking women have to ask themselves what kind of world they want to live and work in. You cannot excuse aberrant behavior by those you support then expect your social and work environments be free from sexual harassment or workplace rape. If you belong to women’s organizations who do not oppose all forms of workplace sexual harassment and workplace rape, then you should leave these organizations. You should insist that all forms of workplace sexual harassment and workplace rape are not allowed to continue and that women responsibly point out any violations. False accusations will only erode the legitimacy of your rights. (Accusing a 90-year-old George HW Bush, who has Parkinson’s disease, is a bit of a stretch)
If we continue to allow the Progressive-Left to replace morality with moral relativism, and respect for one another with objectifying women for one’s own self gratification, then women, children and people in general will succumb to abuse, objectification and even death at the had of others. Time to take back our country and protect our wives, mothers, sisters, and all women from aberrant behavior condoned and pardoned by society!
