Skip to comments.Republicans ‘Empowered’ Bill Clinton Sexual Misconduct by Getting Clarence Thomas on Supreme Court
Posted on 11/20/2017 7:37:18 AM PST by MarvinStinson
ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd said on Sunday that the efforts of congressional Republicans to confirm Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court amid sexual harassment allegations levied against him "empowered" former President Bill Clinton's alleged sexual misconduct.
Dowd, a former Republicans strategist who now identifies as a "proud independent," made the remarks on ABC's "This Week," Newsbusters reported.
"Some things are not about the tribe we're in," Dowd said of sexual misconduct allegations in general during a conversation about Clinton, who some liberals and journalists have criticized in recent weeks amid the ongoing national discussion about sexual harassment.
Dowd cited the confirmation of Thomas to the high court as evidence that Republicans helped "empower" Clinton's sexual behavior in the White House.
"We saw this in '91, the Republicans gave up their values in order to get Justice Thomas on the court," Dowd said. "They basically called Anita Hill a nut and a liar in order to get Justice Thomas on the court."
Anita Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment in 1991, when the Senate was considering then-President George H.W. Bush's nomination of Thomas to the Supreme Court.
"They empowered Bill Clinton," Dowd added, referring to congressional Republicans. "They decided the ends justified the means. They decided that a tainted person was better to get what they wanted."
Conservative journalists quickly ripped Dowd for his comments.

Stalinists lie. Always
Wow. Just wow.
EXCERPT Institutional feminism died when Gloria Steinem, Madeleine Albright and other top feminists vouched for President Clinton as he brazenly lied about never having had a sexual relationship with that woman Monica Lewinsky.
The Clintons and feminists were outraged when Thomass supporters painted Anita Hill as a little bit nutty and a little bit slutty. Yet that was precisely the Clintonian tack when women spoke up about Bills misbehaving.
Time and again, Hillary was a party to demonizing women as liars, bimbos, trailer trash or troubled souls when it seemed clear they were truthful about her philandering husband. She often justified this by thinking of the women as instruments of the right-wing conspiracy.
As I reported in 98, even some veteran Clinton henchmen felt a little nauseated about the debate inside the White House on a slander strategy for Lewinsky: Should they paint her as a friendly fantasist or a malicious stalker?
BACKSTORY Former Bill Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos, now a anchor for ABC News, wrote in his memoir All Too Human: A Political Education....... Hillary Clinton had to savage her enemies during the Lewinsky affair, repeating a pattern from previous scandals involving her husbands behavior towards women.
In 1991, for example, when a woman named Connie Hamzy emerged to accuse Bill Clinton of having an affair with her, Hillary Clinton said, We have to destroy her story, according to Stephanopoulos. George then set about arranging affidavits from people who couldback up Bill Clintons story: Wed survived our first bimbo eruption, Stephanopoulos recalled.
SOURCE: Breitbart.com The Washington Post recently recalled the pattern of Hillary Clintons defenses of her husband against what she called bimbo eruptions: Hillary Clinton dismissed an accusation made by Gennifer Flowers, the singer who sold her story to a supermarket tabloid after having previously denied an affair.
In an ABC News interview, she called Flowers some failed cabaret singer who doesnt even have much of a résumé to fall back on. She told Esquire magazine in 1992 that if she had the chance to cross-examine Flowers, I mean, I would crucify her.
The Post noted: Six years later, Bill Clinton acknowledged a sexual encounter with Flowers.
It added that when the Lewinsky scandal emerged, in which Clinton had oral sex with the then-White House intern in the Oval Office, Hillary Clinton refused to credit the story of his accuser, choosing to believe her husbands lies instead. Hillary reportedly called Lewinsky a narcissistic loony toon.

Stephanopoulos recalled. Later, Stephanopoulos wrote, he wondered whether he had been complicit in Bill Clintons behavior because my defense of Clinton against past bimbo eruptions had been predicated on my belief that he wouldnt create new ones. The same might be said of Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Rotten Clinton empowered Bill’s sexual harassment, assault, and conquests.
Hmmm. How about Broderick, one of his rape victims? I think the event happened in the late seventies, right? So Maureeen, how do you square that?
I think WJC was Bo Diddling long before 1991
Clinton had a long history of harassment, improper relationships with subordinates and even rapes.
Thomas had one, and only one, accuser. A quite possibly deranged woman who actually followed him to another job.
Conor’s collar has Clinton DNA stain.
Well, she was a nut and a liar.
LOL. Clinton was a horn dog all his life well before the Thomas hearings.
This is who the GOP uses for political consultants.
There. Fixed it.
It is never their fault (the left). Someone else made them do it, caused it to happen, framed them, bullied them, yadda yadda.
They are convinced they are on the right side of every issue, and will warp reality at every chance to fit that delusion.
Anita Hill and her attempted smear would all be forgotten today if Thomas had been rejected as a Justice.
Harry Reid defends lying, with regards to Mitt Romney’s tax returns... ‘Worked didn’t it? He’s not predident!’
Exactly. They make this sound as if Bill Clinton, who at the time of the Clarence Thomas hearings was preparing to run for president, decided, gee, based on these hearings, now I can go out and harass and assault women and it’s ok, because Republicans stood behind Thomas. This is such horse blank reasoning to think that this is what happened.
I know. They sure know how to connect non-existent dots, don’t they?
These people are clinically insane and getting worse every minute.
Women don’t lie about rape or sexual harassment ... unless they are accusing a powerful Democrat.
Also, who the the Republicans appoint that empowered Clinton raping ladies before the Thomas appointment?
