Unfortunately, there are so many intertwining facts to present, with so much explanatory weaving together required, that I worry it tends to lose its punch.
Lord knows Jeffrey Lord does his best, and it’s not really his fault, but just the nature of the complexity of the issue.
I’ll attempt another way of presenting it, in list form, as though of ingredients in a recipe:
1. The Democratic Party’s philosophy includes at its core a commitment to Feminism.
2. Feminism includes at its core a commitment to exposing the problem of rape, and the problem of those who try to deny or whitewash that problem.
As Exhibit A for this, Lord quotes Feminist Susan Brownmiller in her 1975 bestseller Against Our Will: Men, Women and Rape: “…the threat, use and cultural acceptance of sexual force is a pervasive process of intimidation that affects all women.”
3. In the Senate race for Missouri, Republican Todd Akin is running against incumbent Senator Democrat Claire McCaskill. Akin not long ago committed the politically INcorrect faux pas of mentioning the phrase “legitimate rape”. Democrats have leapt on that phrase, implying that it connotes a distinction between two types of rape, the second being one that can be countenanced.
4. Obama officially joined the Democrat leapers, with his public statement:
“Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and certainly doesn’t make sense to me.”
5. Obama’s Presidential Campaign is officially using Bill Clinton as a leading spokesman, front and center (and, of course, his wife continues to be in the Obama Cabinet as Secretary of State).
6. Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill — who as we mentioned is running against Akin, against whom Obama and the Democrats have heaped their scorn with calls for him to resign from the race against her — was quoted in 2006 on Meet The Press, while she was running for Senator and receiving donations and support from Bill Clinton, that while she welcomes Bill Clinton’s support, “…I think he’s been a great leader, but I don’t want my daughter near him”.
7. Claire McCaskill is now supporting the Obama Campaign (naturally), while Obama rails against her opponent in the Senate race for his supposedly equivocating statements about rape.
8. There exists copious and persuasive evidence, marshalled in Jeffrey Lord’s article (particularly beginning on page 2), that among all the other women Bill Clinton has sexually molested in one way or another, Juanita Broaddrick was forcibly raped by Bill Clinton in 1978 when he was running for Governor of Arkansas.
9. You’d think those eight ingredients would be enough to turn the stomach and ruin the oven, but there’s one more thing, the typical turn of the screw Leftists indulge in to cross the line into brazen and almost pathological hypocrisy:
As Lord writes:
Over at the Democratic National Committee they have a banner on the front page of their website featuring black-and-white photos of Romney, Ryan and — Todd Akin.
The caption? “The GOP is Dangerously Wrong for Women.”
Not only that, but ultra-Feminist Nancy Keenan, President of the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), reaffirmed this sociopathic chutzpah by warning in the Huffington Post that Romney and Ryan “…have every intention of a continued War on Women.”
Okay, now we can throw out the dinner and throw up.
