Clinton rape scandal resurfaces in Akin controversy: The McCaskill-Clinton videos.
(Page 5 of 8)
So let’s go from here to that famous feminist text of the 1970’s, Susan Brownmiller’s Against Our Will: Men Women and Rape.
Brownmiller’s book, today advertised by its publisher as the “Bestselling Feminist Classic,” says this on the book flap of its first edition:
“…the threat, use and cultural acceptance of sexual force is a pervasive process of intimidation that affects all women.”
Say again, this liberal bible of feminism talks about the “cultural acceptance of sexual force.”
And what is upcoming in the next few weeks?
That’s right. The two national political conventions — major quadrennial features of American culture.
And which convention is featuring in prime time — for the specific purpose of re-nominating the President of the United States — the man who was specifically accused as follows?
“Mr. Clinton….got her onto the bed, held her down forcibly and bit her lips. The sexual entry itself was not without some pain, she recalls, because of her stiffness and resistance.”
Correct. The convention nominating President Obama.
The very same president who said just this week that:
“Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and certainly doesn’t make sense to me.”
Obviously, rape is not rape for Obama if the man in question is — Bill Clinton.
Interestingly, feminist Brownmiller also insisted that rape for women was the same as lynching was for blacks — a subject that should ring a bell in the White House of the first black president. But, alas, no big deal.
Brownmiller also gives an eerily prescient description in the 1975 of what Broaddrick describes as her three years-later harrowing experience with then-Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Clinton. Writes Brownmiller in a chapter titled Power: Institution and Authority:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
