Now that Ray Rice has placed violence against women on the table...
The powerful reaction to Ray Rice’s elevator assault against his then-fiancé raises an awkward question for the media and feminist groups. Where were they when news came out that Juanita Broderick was assaulted by Bill Clinton, and advised to “put some ice on it.”? The list of women abused by Clinton is long, and includes Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and the young star-struck intern Monica Lewinsky.
Yet Bill Clinton remains a revered figure in Democrat circles, just yesterday lionized in Iowa as his wife made a “will I or won’t I?” appearance at a political event.
Along with the silence of feminist groups, we can count on silence from racial grievance groups, who will not utter a peep about racial profiling of abuse and violence against women, contrasting the treatment of Rice with the treatment of Clinton.
