Kamala Harris ‘Empowers’ Serial Predator Bill Clinton
The pair spoke at an event to — get this — empower women. Hypocrisy knows no bounds.
What does a total lack of self-awareness look like? Kamala Harris taking part in a women’s empowerment seminar … with Bill Clinton.
The event, which took place last Friday, was hosted by the Clinton Foundation and featured the two speaking one-on-one at Harris’s alma mater, Howard University. Other luminaries in attendance included Stacey Abrams, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, Howard University President Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick, Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and college students from around the world.
According to a press release, the Clinton Global Initiative’s (CGI) 13th annual event focused on “the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, and empowering women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, restoring faith in democracy, environmental justice, and creating systemic change.”
Funny how systemic change looked depressingly familiar — as in the Clinton family still searching for relevancy and decency — in a world that has since moved on.
Such is only possible in a nation where revisionist history reigns supreme. It’s been a long time since Bill Clinton sat in the Oval Office, and millions of younger Americans are only dimly aware of the former president’s sordid past — one that included allegations of rape by Juanita Broaddrick and sexual misconduct by three other women over the course of decades; a sexual dalliance with White House intern Monica Lewinsky that Clinton initially lied about to the nation until her semen-stained dress forced his hand; and an association with convicted pedophile and sex-trafficking billionaire Jeffrey Epstein that included several flights on Epstein’s private jet, where passengers were allegedly provided young girls for sex.
Unsurprisingly, some of those allegedly victimized by Clinton were furious. Virginia Giuffre, who was one of Epstein’s sex-trafficking victims, led the charge. “Wow!! [Harris is] asking Clinton how to empower women???” she tweeted last Wednesday. “Wrong person, what she should be asking him is what the hell was Clinton doing on #Epstein island & private jets 27 TIMES!!” (That’s an assertion, by the way, that the “fact-checkers” love “debunking” because there’s no record of Clinton landing on the island.)
Juanita Broaddrick was equally incensed, and not just by Clinton. “Is this a f—ing joke? This pervert …….. who raped me….is going to talk about empowering women….with a woman who spread her legs for power,” she tweeted.
Leslie Millwee, who also accused the former president of sexual assault, was likewise astonished. “He is going to get up on a stage and tell us about how to be empowered?” she exclaimed. “I truly can’t think of anything more brazen. I think this goes to show you the political power that the Clintons still have.”
Millwee also took Harris to task for her blatant hypocrisy, noting that in April 2019, the then-senator stated she believed allegations made by Tara Reade, who accused Joe Biden of sexual assault. “It goes back a lot to partisan politics and I hate to keep bringing that up, but I think that’s crux of it,” Millwee added. “It’s brazen. This man has gotten by with so much in the last 50 or 60 years. And I think it goes back to a power entitlement. He feels like he can do whatever he wants. Nothing’s going to get in this way, and he’s going to bulldoze his way through anything he wants to.”
Harris apparently feels that same entitlement. “Harris pursued unsubstantiated accusations of sexual misconduct against [Brett] Kavanaugh, even introducing a letter from a ‘Jane Doe’ who claimed that youthful Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her ‘several times’ after offering her a lift home from a party,” Breitbart News reported last August. “She earned condemnation for a deceptively-edited video in which she claimed Kavanaugh opposed birth control.”
Harris, who said she was in favor of Kavanaugh’s impeachment after he was confirmed, has also conspicuously avoided commenting on Democrat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s alleged harassment of several women. This despite her alleged support for the #MeToo movement.
Support — or lack thereof — that is apparently determined by one’s political affiliation.
Reade also pounded Harris. “The most amazing thing about the elite Democrats is both the hypocrisy and arrogance wrapped in lack of self awareness,” she tweeted. “Bill Clinton is going to discuss girls and women with Kamala Harris Friday… Really? Seriously?”
It’s not just elite Democrats. A number of prominent women’s groups, including Planned Parenthood, Emily’s List, the Women’s March, Time’s Up Now, the Center for Reproductive Rights, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), and the American Civil Liberties Union — all of whom were quite vocal about their support for Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford — were contacted for comment by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
None of them responded to repeated requests made last Wednesday.
So what’s really going on here? Why would America’s first female vice president, who appears destined to be commander-in-chief sooner rather than later, take on such unnecessary political baggage? Washington Times columnist Kelly Sadler provides astute speculation, all of which boils down to what every politician is interested in doing — as in getting aboard the donor gravy train, with a large dollop of quid pro quos thrown in to make the Clintons happy as well.
Despite being despised by many working-class Americans, “Mrs. Harris had more billionaire donors than any other Democratic candidate running for president last year,” Sadler explains.
And as Jacobin magazine reported, those donors included Salesforce’s Marc Benioff, Amazon general counsel David Zapolsky, Microsoft president Brad Smith, LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston, Oracle NetSuite executives Evan Goldberg and Dorian Daley, Cisco CFO Kelly Kramer, former Facebook chief security officer Alex Stamos, and venture capitalist John Doerr. As Politico reported, other donors included “Tony Fadell, co-founder of smart thermostat maker Nest; Jony Ive, the design guru at Apple; Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder and former Facebook president; and Brian Chesky, chief executive of Airbnb.”
“So, it makes sense why Mr. Clinton would want to tap into her wealthy donor pool and invite Mrs. Harris to have a conversation,” Sadler adds. “Given the broad Clinton Foundation donor list, it also makes sense as to why Mrs. Harris agreed. To be sure, this conversation will focus on ‘women’s empowerment,’ but all it’s really about is swapping information on wealthy donors to bulk up both Mrs. Harris’ and Mr. Clinton’s vast Rolodexes.”
In the world these hypocrites inhabit, that’s all the “women’s empowerment” that really matters.
