Earlier on these pages, I queried whether mega-producer Harvey Weinstein would be facing his hard-earned day of reckoning had his political ally, Hillary Clinton, won the presidency in 2016. For that matter, would actor Kevin Spacey? Or Senator Al Franken? Of course, Judge Roy Moore would be in trouble down in Alabama. He’s ultra-conservative and Republican. I digress.
The larger point is … Cynical, demagogic liberals are beginning to throw Hillary and Bill Clinton overboard. Because they can. The Clintons are no longer political kingmakers and unlikely (as in ‘no chance’) to enjoy such status again. When such a high-level coup occurs, so does collateral damage.
The even larger point is … It’s not as though we suddenly know things about Bill’s engaging in, and Hillary’s enabling of, sordid sexual imbroglios that were unknown prior to November 8, 2016, or even some twenty years before that. It’s just that one year ago, twenty years ago, when the Clintons held great power and influence, and, equally important, served the political needs of the liberal establishment in support of legal abortion and what have you, they were given a pass. Until now.
As former allies turn on the Clintons — very suddenly, it seems — there is the attempt to deflect away from said allies’ own hypocrisy, even so as to re-write history. For example, it is claimed that, in 1998, Republicans pursued charges of perjury against then President Clinton when they should have focused, instead, on the President’s sexual predations. That is poppycock!
Bill Clinton’s detractors condemned his sexual predations in 1998; even as his defenders in the Democrat party and the Liberal Media Complex rejected such condemnation, claiming, for instance, that Bill’s sexual dalliance with young White House intern Monica Lewinsky was “sex between two consenting adults” and, therefore, nobody else’s business. As for Mr. Clinton’s other accusers, they were roundly dismissed by establishment liberals as ‘tramps,’ ‘trailer trash,’ or otherwise lacking credibility.
Such obvious hypocrisies aside, getting rid of the Clinton’s now serves another deeply cynical purpose. The establishment left hopes to clear a pathway to President Donald Trump. After all, if sexual predators are dropping like flies in multiple industries and on both sides of the aisle, and if we now (better late than never, eh?) recognize the sex-related travesties of a former U.S. President, how can we ignore any sex-related charges conjured up against the current President?
It is easy to imagine this cynical ploy bandied about by establishment liberals … as they continue and intensify their quest to destroy a sitting President.Follow @PolitiQuick
