Hillary's War on Women

She campaigns as an advocate for women, but her record proves otherwise.

It’s not news that Hillary Clinton’s record of defending women who are actually victims of sexual assault does not match up with her public statements on the matter. In 2015 she tweeted, “To every survivor of sexual assault… You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.” Hillary loves to champion herself as standing boldly for women against the Republicans and their fictitious “war on women.” But her campaign website has been scrubbed of the above reference to believing accusers. Wonder why…

What the record shows is a list of women whom Hillary has done anything but defend, hear or believe. We’re all familiar with Bill and his penchant for womanizing. Remember Juanita Broaddrick, who has claimed for decades that Bill raped her? Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones and others claim Bill sexually assaulted them. When Hillary was asked about these women and their claims, she said, “I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence.” Problem was, there has never been any evidence presented to discredit any of these women’s claims.

But Hillary’s problem with defending women isn’t limited to her husband’s accusers. Back in 1975, when she was a court-appointed attorney, she defended a man who raped a 12-year-old girl. Hillary questioned the emotional stability of the girl, who she claimed had a “tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing.” Clinton was able to get certain forensic evidence disallowed and as a result her client spent less than one year in jail for the crime.

Kathy Shelton, the rape victim, now says, “I don’t think [Clinton’s] for women or girls. I think she’s lying, I think she said anything she can to get the campaign and win. If she was [an advocate for women and children], she wouldn’t have done that to me at 12 years old.”

Many of us have known for a long time that Hillary Clinton is no more an advocate for women than is her womanizing husband. Hillary, like her husband, uses women. But in Hillary’s case, it’s for her own political aims.
