War on Wymryns!

She’s still the next US president, if she so chooses. Just you watch.

When the Roman Polanski rape case resurfaced, Whoopi Goldberg coined the term “rape-rape” to describe the difference between the kind of rape she opposed and the kind she was okay with because it had been perpetrated by someone she liked.

In the political world the cases of Clarence Thomas and Bill Clinton showed how liberals delineated between the sexual harassment of men they approved of and disapproved of. Now the “Rape Rape” distinction is back with Bill’s wife.

Last week liberal activists were denouncing George Will for questioning the lack of due process for accused rapists on campus. Then the Washington Free Beacon posted a tape in which Hillary Clinton had a good laugh discussing how she freed a child rapist that she knew was guilty from prison.

Hillary had become the Democratic Party’s official “Role Model for Women” through her willingness to stand by her powerful husband during his affairs, cover up his sexual harassment of other women and even target those women for daring to speak out against her husband.

Now the face of the Democratic Party’s bid to make feminist history in 2016 was caught on tape cheerfully recollecting how she accused a 12-year-old girl, in formal legal language, of being a mentally ill slut. Or as the Washington Post’s Melinda Henneberger put it, “The ‘little bit nutty, little bit slutty’ defense has a long, ugly history. It’s jarring to see it trotted out against a kid by a future feminist icon.”

Suddenly the social justice warriors who were denouncing due process, such as access to legal counsel, for campus rapists being tried by student committees, became big fans of due process for rapists.

As with Whoopi Goldberg, it was all about who was doing the raping and who the rapist’s lawyer was.

Well, sure. “Liberals” are infinitely flexible about things like that, and not one left-wing “feminist” Hillary supporter will be at all troubled by any of this. They’ll work as hard as they have to not to be. But Daniel has bigger fish to fry here, making it another read-it-all post.

  1. All this kvetching over Hillary’s political tone deafness is just white noise. She’s always been a shitty retail politician. But all of the diehard Democrats (around what, 45% of the electorate) will vote for whatever piece of crap the Dems excrete out of their primary season. And if it’s Hillary, a lot of women who should know better will vote for her because of the historic notion of voting for a vagina. And no, apparently Palin’s vagina isn’t real.

    What’s my point? Unless the GOP does something smart (hah!), they will lose to Hillary, Slow Joe or Fauxcahontas. At which point, the decline will be irreversible. After 2012, I was pretty much resigned to that being the case already. In any event, I’ve been preparing for the worst and I would suggest that all of the smart people are doing so, too.

  2. flexible, yeah yeah, that’s the ticket.

    It’s really so convenient having “flexible” principles, ain’t it?

  3. If Hillary is actually electable, I’d love to hear the reasoning on why her book is doing slightly worse than “Curious George visits an abandoned coal mine”.

    If she wasn’t electable in 2008, she isn’t now, and the Donks know it.
