It was refreshing for me to read Matt Lewis’ piece for the Daily Beast, “So, Feminists Are Finally Admitting It: Bill Clinton Was a Cad (or Worse).” It’s a rare moment of introspection on the part of a liberal publication, and it belies a reckoning that the Left has been reticent to acknowledge: They are guilty of every sin they have ascribed to conservatives. A man much wiser than myself once said, “Americans will forgive a liar, we will never forgive a hypocrite.” The Left only now seems to be coming to grips with the significance of such a simple truth.
In July of 1969, Ted Kennedy killed Mary Jo Kopechne. He drove his car into a river and swam to safety while she remained in the vehicle and drowned. He didn’t call the police, he didn’t seek immediate aid, instead he waited almost half a day to do anything, and was later given a slap on the wrist for his despicable conduct.
In 1978, then Attorney General of Arkansas, Bill Clinton, allegedly raped Juanita Broaddrick. According to Broaddrick, Hillary Clinton used her position as Bill’s personal enabler to coerce her into silence. The litany of Bill Clinton’s sex victims has only grown longer since 1978 but Broaddrick’s story is perhaps the most poignant example of Clinton using his power to push himself on the powerless victims of his unbridled lust.
In May of this year, disgraced former Democratic Congressman and failed NYC mayoral candidate, Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty to preying on a fifteen year old girl. He’s currently where all over-sexed predatory animals belong, prison.
Louis C.K. once called President Donald Trump “an insane bigot” and compared him to Hitler. Now he’s being accused of sexual harassment by five women, and he even copped to the whole thing.
George Takei, ever the stalwart anti-Trumper, has also found himself between the cross-hairs as anecdotes of his sexual misconduct have come to the forefront. His mea culpa was as empty as Kevin Spacey’s, both men blamed external factors for their detestable choices and actions, and it seems both predators are using their homosexuality as a shield for their inexcusable behaviors. Takei even had the nerve to blame the story circulating on the evil Rooskies.
Do I need to get into Harvey Weinstein? It’s better than him getting into you, and maybe that’s all I should say about that. But was Weinstein a conservative? Was he ever a champion of limited government and free markets? No, he’s about as liberal as a liberal can get. And he’s of the same archetype as Clinton and Kennedy: A bloated pig accustomed to sh-tting where he eats.
Speaking of pigs – though not one so bloated – how did Hugh Hefner vote? Hefner, a champion of moral rot and societal decay, a man who turned the exploitation of women into an artform under the auspices of free speech, was an avowed leftist who reveled in his hatred of the traditional values that at one point were the building block of our civilization’s success. He, along with Clinton and Kennedy and Weinstein, are generals in the war on women and illustrate without a doubt that those who preach the loudest about respect for women are the least respectful of the fairer sex.
Don’t forget, Vice President Mike Pence was excoriated by these same people for having a rule against dining alone with a woman who are not his wife. The Left wants it both ways: They want to preach virtue for others while practicing licentiousness themselves. ‘Good for me, and not for thee’ should be the Democratic Party’s newest slogan. At least conservatives like Vice President Pence walk the walk in addition to talking the talk. There’s no room on the Right for having our cake and eating it too. The same standards do not apply to the effete elitists on the Left.
It wasn’t a conservative celebrity who led a standing ovation for child-rapist Roman Polanski at the Oscars, that was ugly old Meryl Streep, a die-hard Trump hater. This hearkens to Matt Lewis’ article for the Daily Beast when he said, “What are the lessons Clinton taught us? The first one is obvious: that you can get away with it if you’re a celebrity.”
Conservatives aren’t immune to this kind of loathsome behavior toward women, and it might yet doom Senate hopeful Roy Moore. The allegations made against him are serious, but can we really take seriously the denouncements from the Left? It’s all well and good for Republicans to cut him loose though it may be pre-mature (isn’t it funny how these accusations always seem to pop up right before election time?), but why the hell should we be bothered with what liberals have to say about Moore?
It’s not that we on the Right don’t comprehend the seriousness of the allegations against Moore, we certainly do. Contrary to popular progressive “thought” (I use the word generously), we aren’t all a bunch of ignorant hillbillies. It’s not that we don’t care about the allegations, we certainly do. The point is, we don’t care about what liberals have say about the matter. After Kennedy, Clinton, Weiner, Franken, Weinstein, and whoever gets outed next, why should we give a damn what any leftist has to say about alleged conservative misconduct?
The Left has a huge credibility problem on this issue, that is, they have no credibility on this issue. While we must take seriously the scandalous accusations leveled at Roy Moore and investigate them thoroughly, let’s not waste one second of our time taking the Left seriously.
