Bill Clinton “could very well have raped” Juanita Broaddrick, but according to one feminist website, that doesn’t make the former president and potential First Gentleman “evil.” (To even think Bill could hold the title of “Gentleman” …).
The feminist website Wonkette published a piece this week in which the writer basically pardoned Clinton for his actions. In an article “Let’s Talk About Juanita Broaddrick,” writer Rebecca Schoenkopf addresses Broadrick’s allegation that Clinton raped her in an Arkansas hotel room 40 years ago. She acknowledges the “contemporaneous evidence,” including Broaddrick’s friends claiming to have seen her crying and with bruised lips not long after the alleged incident occurred.
But then Schoenkopf must’ve hit her head on a very, very hard rock, because her following logic after confirming the rape likely happened is not only flawed, but outright wrong. Schoenkopf writes:
“To sum up, I think Bill Clinton could very well have raped Juanita Broaddrick… but that doesn’t make him an evil man, or irredeemable. I’m Catholic; we’re all forgiven, if we’re sorry, and Broaddrick says Bill Clinton personally called her up to apologize… It doesn’t even necessarily make him a bad feminist — you know, later, once he stops doing that.”
I’m sure Broaddrick strongly disagrees with Schoenkopf’s troubling and disturbing conclusion.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.
