As allegations against Rand Paul continue, there is a sickening irony behind Clinton’s interjection

The Democratic establishment is pulling out the big guns in an all out effort to prevent Rand Paul from becoming a Kentucky senator this November by dispatching former president Bill Clinton to campaign for Paul’s opponent Jack Conway on the eve of the election.
Clinton will touch down in Kentucky on November 1st.
“Conway campaign spokeswoman Allison Haley confirmed Clinton’s return visit but said locations of Clinton’s appearances have not been finalized.” reports the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Lexington businessman Jerry Lundergan, who is a close friend of the former president, said he has talked to Clinton, “and he has assured me that he will come back to Kentucky to campaign for Jack.”
Clinton is still popular in Kentucky, a state he carried twice on his way to the White House in the 1990s.
The news throws up an interesting talking point in the face of continued smears against Rand Paul’s character on behalf of the corporate media and Conway himself.
While it is clear that the allegations against Rand Paul have been distorted and blown out of all proportion, as admitted by the anonymous woman in question who recanted and admitted that she was never kidnapped, nor force drugged, the establishment is still using the manufactured hoax in an effort to discredit Paul.
However, this display of enthusiasm that was noticeably lacking when the far more serious rape scandals surrounding Bill Clinton came to light in 1998.
Juanita Broaddrick alleged that then President Bill Clinton had raped her two decades earlier.
Despite the fact that the majority of Americans believed the allegations to be true, 54 per cent versus 23 per cent who thought they were false, and despite Clinton settling the case with a whopping $850,000 settlement, “A lot of money from someone who claims he did nothing wrong,” as Larry Elder wrote, the corporate media again defended Clinton and downplayed the seriousness of the allegations.
Again, the details of the allegations made by Broaddrick against Clinton were infinitely more shocking and disturbing than Rand Paul’s college tomfoolery. Broaddrick claimed that Clinton forced her down on the bed in a hotel room, tore away her underwear and began aggressively raping her while biting her lips as she begged him to stop.
Feminist icon and liberal establishment mouthpiece Gloria Steinem also sprang to Clinton’s defense in a separate sexual harassment allegation against Clinton, absolving Clinton for allegedly forcing Kathleen Willey to place her hand on his genitalia. “Steinem suggested that women should be of sterner stuff and that Willey’s description, if true, is small potatoes. After all, said Steinem, when Willey said, “Stop,” Clinton stopped. No harm, no foul.”
Despite the fact that Clinton publicly lied to the American people during the Monica Lewinsky scandal when he said, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” the numerous other women who alleged affairs or who claimed they had been raped or molested by Clinton were all dismissed as liars by the corporate media, just as Lewinsky was branded deceitful before she produced the semen-stained dress that proved her story to be true, and just as Gennifer Flowers was also savaged by the establishment before Clinton, during the Paula Jones deposition, was forced to admit the he did indeed have sex with Flowers.
While in the case of the Rand Paul, the corporate media took a non-story, overhyped it, and then manufactured an outright hoax by claiming that Paul had forcibly kidnapped a woman and drugged her, and is still persisting with the issue, in the case of Clinton, the establishment did everything it could to belittle, downplay, and ignore what were obviously far more serious and factually grounded allegations.
The establishment has crucified Rand Paul for his tangential involvement in a harmless and consensual college prank for weeks because, unlike alleged rapist Clinton, who they defended to the hilt, Rand Paul represents a serious threat to the status quo and has become the de facto voice of the Tea Party – that’s why Washington elitists and their liberal media sycophants will continue to invent hoaxes, overhype non-events from 30 years ago, and slander Rand Paul ceaselessly in a desperate effort to eviscerate the massive support he enjoys in Kentucky that is set to help him secure a place in the Senate and become a true representative of the American people.
The idea that the establishment would send Bill Clinton as a trustworthy political figure to bolster the campaign against Rand Paul is sickeningly ironic.
Yesterday Rand Paul once again had to spend time responding to the baseless allegations against his name. Paul told CNN “In my entire life, I’ve written and said a lot of things. I’ve never said or written anything un-Christian in my life”.
Paul told CNN he doubts the voters care about the questions raised in the spot. “I mean people are concerned about the federal takeover of health care. They’re concerned about taxes, jobs, the economy,” Paul said. “I don’t really think they’re concerned about or want to talk about one man’s accusation of another man’s religion,” he added.
Paul repeated his comments on Fox News, watch the video:
