Newly discovered audio recordings reveal Hillary Clinton in the 1980s gladly defended the suspected rapist of a 12-year-old girl using a legal technicality.

Is this a surprise for a woman who seeks to be president and who has championed the notion that Republican opposition is “at war with women”?

Not really.

Just ask Kathleen Willey, one of the lucky survivors of Hillary’s husband’s serial sexual predator actions throughout his political career, including the presidency. Willey, who was sexually accosted by Bill Clinton while she worked as a volunteer in the White House, said frankly earlier this year, “Hillary is the war on women.” In other words, when given the chance to have a positive impact in the lives of dozens of real women, she chose to cover up, obfuscate, parse words – even “stand by her man.”

But now we see the truth about this phony feminist. Given the choice between being the token woman attorney representing a man she strongly suspected was guilty of raping a 12-year-old girl and doing the right thing, Hillary opted for the money and her legal career.

Keep in mind, she also defended Bill when he was accused of raping Juanita Broaddrick. According to Broaddrick, Hillary even threatened her about going public.

Two weeks after the violent sexual attack, Broaddrick recalls Hillary coming up to her and saying: “I just want you to know how much that Bill and I appreciate what you do for him. Do you understand? Everything that you do.”

Broaddrick added, “Cold chills went up my spine. That’s the first time I became afraid of that woman.”

Imagine that!

Now I would like to contrast media and pundit-class interest in Hillary’s long history of disregard, callousness and even complicity in sexual harassment and sexual assault of actual women and the treatment of a Republican member of Congress who made what some considered an inappropriate remark about rape – the now-infamous Todd Akin.

In 2012, while seeking a U.S. Senate seat in Missouri, Rep. Todd Akin responded to a question about whether he would support abortion in cases of rape with the following words: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. You know, I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

That was enough for Hillary Clinton’s entire Democratic Party, the same one that called on Americans to “move on” and forget about her husband’s sexual predator activity, to crucify Akin. The media joined in the ridicule, as did many in Republican leadership. The vilification hasn’t subsided 18 months after Akin lost his Senate bid. Every single day since, some vindictive pundit has used Todd Akin’s name as a punchline.

And what was so wrong about what Todd Akin said?

Was he in any way making light of rape, as his accusers claimed?

No, in fact, “legitimate rape” is a legal term of art in Missouri state law. Not every person who cries rape does so with cause. Therefore, the first issue is always the determination of whether rape actually occurred. If so, then you have a “legitimate rape.” Apparently, most Democrats discounted Juanita Broaddrick’s claim without any curiosity whatsoever.

Was he dead wrong about the impact of stress on infertility?

No, in fact there is a library of research on the subject, which, anyone who cares to Google the phrase “stress and fertility” can review firsthand. Scientific studies show that both the male and female are affected by stress during the sexual act, making pregnancy less likely during a traumatic experience like rape.

But it was never about understanding what Todd Akin meant. It was about finding ammunition for the phony claim that Republicans were waging a “war on women.” And Todd Akin became exhibit A for the media lynch mob.

So who has a lifelong legacy of conducting a war on women who are sexually assaulted – Todd Akin or Hillary Clinton?

Which party has more recent experience condemning sexual assault victims – Republicans or Democrats? Let me remind you that after Todd Akin was politically crucified for his misrepresented comments in the 2012 campaign, Bill Clinton, the serial predator and accused rapist, got a standing ovation at the Democratic National Convention.
