After what seems like a lifetime of Leftists attacking the long list of women who have accused Bill Clinton with sexual misconduct, now, as a Republican Senate candidate faces similar allegations in Alabama, some liberals are all of a sudden warming to the idea that maybe… just maybe… Bill Clinton’s victims deserve a little consideration.
Of course, you’d have to be living in a cave not to know that a Republican Senate candidate in Alabama is having a spot of trouble with allegations that he sexually harassed teenaged girls back in the 1970s.
Judge Roy Moore, a man who owes no loyalty to the swamp dwellers in Washington D.C. (neither among Democrats nor their pals across the aisle in the Republican establishment) has been swamped by a list of women who claim that he pressured them for sex back in the late 1970s when he was just starting his legal career in his 30s.
While most of his accusers have only alleged that he acted like a dirty old man way back 40 years ago, one actually charged him with forcibly trying to molest her.
There are many problems with the stories these women are peddling, not the least of which is why they all waited 40 years to clobber Moore with these allegations despite the fact that he has participated in several very controversial campaigns in the last 30 years.
Yes, the biggest question is, why now? It all smacks of political opportunism.
There are many other problems, too, with some questions verging on sounding like conspiracy theories. But this article is not about exploring all these theories and questions. No, this piece is about how the Roy Moore accusations may have finally caused some liberals to be “woke” to Bill Clinton’s sexual crimes.
You may be one of those who are not happy over the exercise of “what-aboutism.” That is the action of countering an attack on one of yours with examples of the same or worse behavior by one of theirs.
For instance, when someone brings up Roy Moore, many on the right have countered that by saying, “what about all these decades of sexual assaults committed by Bill Clinton?”
Indeed, that is just what has been happening. After all, Bill Clinton has a long, long record of sexual assaults, adultery, and even rape. Worse, Bill Clinton has not only been excused for his behavior, he has been celebrated as one of the Democrat Party’s biggest ongoing rock stars.
So, how can liberals be so upset about Roy Moore, but not care at all about even worse crimes by their rock star, Bill Clinton?
Chelsea Handler, leftist activist-slash-comedian, issued an apology to Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who accused Bill Clinton years ago of rape, and said — prepare to gasp — “I believe you.”
The left’s long line of defense for all-things-Clinton is finally crumbling.
Here’s how the story broke.
Handler first wrote about Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate who’s facing a slew of sexually-tied scandalous accusations right now.
“Imagine being molested by an older man,” Handler tweeted. “Then that man denies ever doing it and then goes on and gets elected to United State [S]enate. What kind of message does that send to young girls everywhere? And men to all the men who abuse women?”
It wasn’t long before the hypocrisy angle was highlighted — by Broaddrick herself.
Broaddrick tweeted, until her @atensnut handle: “Yeahm @chelseahandler I can imagine. I was raped by the Arkansas AG who then becomes Governor & President and NBC held my interview explaining the rape until after his impeachment hearing. But I’m sure you don’t want to go there.”

I’m sorry I’m just seeing this, @atensnut. You are right and I apologize to you for not knowing your story. Democrats along with Republicans and the rest of the worlds’s political parties all need to do better and respect the firsthand accounts of victims. I believe you. https://t.co/VDIFmCvg7g

It took a few days, but Handler responded.
And this is what she wrote, again on Twitter, on Wednesday evening: “I’m sorry I’m just seeing this @atensnut. You are right and I apologize to you for not knowing your story. Democrats along with Republicans and the rest of the world’s political parties all need to do better and respect the firsthand accounts of victims. I believe you.”
It was so epic that even Hannity commented on it:

That sound you just heard?
Why, that’s the sound of a chink of Clinton armor dropping to the ground.
Well, maybe that ice is melting a little bit?
It began with a shocking op-ed from Michelle Goldberg in The New York Times, titled “I Believe Juanita.” Goldberg explains that she now believes the rape allegations against Bill Clinton — but she didn’t before because right-wingers were engaged in a vast right-wing conspiracy. In other words, any time it’s politically beneficial to ignore “politically motivated” allegations, ignore them; you can always buy it back decades later.
Goldberg continues by acknowledging that “we should look clearly at the credible evidence that Juanita Broaddrick told the truth when she accused Clinton of raping her. But revisiting the Clinton scandals in light of today’s politics is complicated as well as painful. Democrats are guilty of apologizing for Clinton when they shouldn’t have.”
The liberal columnist goes on to proclaim that it was wrong to smear Clinton’s accusers with the Hillary Clinton-led bimbo eruption machine.
Goldberg ends her piece saying, “It’s fair to conclude that because of Broaddrick’s allegations, Bill Clinton no longer has a place in decent society.”
That is a HUGE admission for a liberal!
Goldberg isn’t alone. A host on the extremist left-wing cable network MSNBC also noted that the left needs to “have a reckoning” over the many decades of accusations against the Clintons.
Chris Hayes, normally a reliable, hardcore, sold out left-winger, took to Twitter to wonder aloud if the “what-aboutism” was a valid point where it concerns Bill Clinton.
“As gross and cynical and hypocrtical [yes, he spelled it wrong] 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,” Hayes wrote.

Hayes went on saying, “Read this account, in light of all we’ve been hearing and reading this last month, and ask yourself if it’s credible.”
A left-winger like Hayes suddenly turning on the Clintons like this is quite a thing, isn’t it?
Of course, in the end, Rush Limbaugh has a sneaking suspicion why liberals are suddenly starting to eye the Clintons. In this week’s show, Limbaugh has noted that many on the left are just as sick and tired of the Clintons sucking up all the political oxygen in this country as the rest of us.
And maybe, just maybe, the long knives are coming out on the left to cut the Clintons down to size and get rid of them so that new people can raise up to take power in the Democrat Party.
Could be that, too.
