Liberal feminists have spent the months now lambasting Bill Cosby for allegedly sexually assaulting dozens upon dozens of women — but their outrage is limited to convenient victims only. And at least one liberal feminists is fed up with the hypocrisy, pointing out that Bill Clinton is just as bad as Bill Cosby, and yet feminists look the other way.
Right from the start, when the Bill Cosby scandal surfaced, I knew it was not going to bode well for Hillary’s campaign, because young women today have a much lower threshold for tolerance of these matters. The horrible truth is that the feminist establishment in the U.S., led by Gloria Steinem, did in fact apply a double standard to Bill Clinton’s behavior because he was a Democrat. The Democratic president and administration supported abortion rights, and therefore it didn’t matter what his personal behavior was.
But we’re living in a different time right now, and young women have absolutely no memory of Bill Clinton. It’s like ancient history for them; there’s no reservoir of accumulated good will. And the actual facts of the matter are that Bill Clinton was a serial abuser of working-class women–he had exploited that power differential even in Arkansas. And then in the case of Monica Lewinsky–I mean, the failure on the part of Gloria Steinem and company to protect her was an absolute disgrace in feminist history! What bigger power differential could there be than between the president of the United States and this poor innocent girl? Not only an intern but clearly a girl who had a kind of pleading, open look to her–somebody who was looking for a father figure.
The Clintons, the Kennedys — both are political dynasties idolized by liberals, and because they stand on the right side of the aisle, the left is more than happy to overlook their misdeeds and crimes. Before these liberal feminazis get upset about Bill Cosby, maybe they should take a look in the mirror and reconsider their defense of people like Bill Clinton.
