At an Iowa Press conference in September, Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton said, “Today I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault,” Clinton said. “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you.”
As Philip Hodges pointed out in a post at Eagle Rising the top of theCampus Sexual Assault page on Ms. Clinton’s campaign site posted the quote above, but strangely left out the part about having the right to be believed.
Philip’s article made me wonder, why would she take out the part about having the right to be believe?
It occurred to me that there there are fourteen reasons why she took that part of her quote out. Well thirteen plus one. There are fourteen women who she doesn’t want believed. The thirteen women (we know of) who were sexually assaulted by her husband former POTUS Bubba Clinton, plus Monica Lewinsky:
- Juanita Broaddrick who claims she was raped by Bill Clinton and Hillary tried to silence her. “she says, he 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. When it was over, she says, he looked down at her and said not to worry, he was sterile–he had had mumps when he was a child.”
- Kathleen Willey who told 60 Minutes that Bubba assaulted her in the White House. “he had his arms — they were tight around me, and he — he — he touched me, he touched my breasts with his hand, and, I — I — I — I was — I — I was just startled. And — then he — whispered — he — he — said in — in my ears that, “I — I’ve wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you.” And — I remember — I remember saying to him, “aren’t you afraid that somebody’s going to walk in here?” The — and, he said — he said, “no. No, I’m — no, I’m not.” And — and then — and — and then he took my hand, and he — and he put it on him. [On — on his genitals she says later]. And, that’s when I pushed away from him and — and decided it was time to get out of there.
- Paula Jones who sued he president for exposing himself to her in an Arkansas hotel room. It was a deposition in this lawsuit where Bubba committee perjury about Monica Lewinsky.
- Sandra Allen James who was pinned against a wall by he former president as he stuck his hand up her dress (Ms. James loud scream caused the Arkansas State Trooper outside the door to knock spoiling Bubba’s moment).
