Hillary the Benghazi Bimbo
Hillary Clinton and her allies furiously and famously defended her husband's sexual predations by targeting the women Bill victimized with media campaigns designed to portray Bill's victims as lying, conniving bimbos. The best example of such targeting was the memorable television interview with James Carville, a longtime Clinton hatchet man, where he made this statement in regard to the sexual harassment from Bill reported by Paula Jones, an Arkansas state employee: "Drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you'll find."
That dismissive, condescending statement epitomized the theme of the Hillary-directed media response to the Bimbo Eruption, as it came to be known. Quite simply, these working-class, ordinary American women had no credibility due to their station in life. They were nothing more than low-class hustlers, looking for their fifteen minutes of fame by making accusations against a charismatic Democrat politician.
The operative term there is "Democrat." Had these women come forth with their charges against a Republican presidential candidate, he would have been immediate toast in the mainstream media. But Bill and Hillary were Democrats, so the media went along with the bimbo portrayals even though Bill ultimately paid Paula Jones $850,000 to settle her lawsuit, in the process perjuring himself and losing his law license. And of course there was then the spectacle of Monica Lewinsky.
So why rehash all that? Well, it appears that Hillary is embarked on a new campaign to portray some ordinary Americans as deliberate liars regarding conversations she held with them on the tarmac at Andrews AFB, as the military was returning the bodies of the men killed in the Benghazi assault to their families.
At least three of those families have publicly stated that Hillary told them, "We are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of your son."
That was in reference to the bogus story the Obama administration had floated following the Benghazi massacre that the Islamic attackers were merely ordinary citizens incited by an anti-Islamic video produced by some Muslim character in California – in spite of the fact that Obama, Hillary, and the other top players all knew that the attack was a planned, deliberate military operation conducted by fully armed jihadist forces. Because such an attack would refute Obama's claims that his administration had the Middle East terror situation under control in the critical run-up to his second-term election, the bogus video scenario was adopted, dutifully promoted, and vigorously defended by all key players. Sadly, that included Hillary at the casket arrival service at Andrews AFB, where she took the deception to a truly evil level by cold-bloodedly repeating the lie multiple times to the attending families of the fallen warriors.
Now that the video lie has been long debunked and Hillary is running for president, she knows that there is only one way to counter the families' truthful revelations: by branding them liars, a modern resurrection of the tactics employed to counter her predatory husband's accusers. We'll see how that plays out this time around.
It was fairly simple to label a group of politically unsophisticated women, primarily from the South, as trailer-trash bimbos and get the media elites to go along. But this time it is families that have lost their sons in their nation's service, families that have no reason to tell anything other than truth, that Hillary is attempting to paint as conniving liars. Somehow, I think she's going to find it much more difficult to sell that garbage now, even to her lapdog media pals. Even those Democrat butt-kissers can see that the only lying bimbo associated with Benghazi is this woman, a hardened political operative lacking the common decency to refrain from such reptilian cruelty as lying to crying mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers even when she had no compelling reason to do so other than preserving a political lie.
