Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, senator, and first lady who is now running for president stepped in it with a Sunday tweet on the subject of rape. She tweeted, “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.” It was a case of Hillary believing that accusations of rape and sexual assault were distractions before she believed that they were serious. Of course, as many people who responded to her tweet pointed out, those accusations involved her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
The names of the women whom Bill Clinton is said to have assaulted are familiar. They include Paula Jones, who Clinton exposed himself to and demanded oral sex. He is said to have grabbed Kathleen Willey and kissed and fondled her forcibly in the Oval Office. But no incident is quite as horrific and degrading as the one involving Juanita Broaddrick.
Broaddrick had the misfortune to cross paths with then Arkansas State Attorney General Bill Clinton during the late 1970s when, according to her account, he forcibly raped her in a hotel room in Little Rock. According to her account on NBC News over 20 years later, as quoted on Breitbart:
“Then he tries to kiss me again. And the second time he tries to kiss me he starts biting my lip … He starts to, um, bite on my top lip and I tried to pull away from him. And then he forces me down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen but he wouldn’t listen to me. … It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.’ And that’s when he pressed down on my right shoulder and he would bite my lip. … When everything was over with, he got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at the moment and he walks to the door, and calmly puts on his sunglasses. And before he goes out the door he says ‘You better get some ice on that.’ And he turned and went out the door.”
Because of a later social exchange with Hillary Clinton, Broaddrick believes that the current presidential candidate knew about the rape and was strongly hinting that she should keep quiet about it, according to a story in Breitbart, Needless to say, she is surprised that Ms. Clinton now says that survivors of sexual assault such as her “deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.” And Juanita Broaddrick means to be heard as Hillary Clinton seeks to enter the Oval Office.
