Bill Clinton Notes Cultural Shift In "What You Can Do To Somebody Against Their Will"

Bill Clinton just can't seem to promote his new book without questions over sexual misconduct coming up!

In a Thursday interview with PBS Newshour, Clinton, 71, suggested that "norms have changed" regarding "what you can do to somebody against their will" after host Judy Woodruff asked the former president for his thoughts on the changing standards that drove Democrat Al Franken to step down. 

"I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will, how much you can crowd their space, make them miserable at work." -Bill Clinton

"You don’t have to physically assault somebody to make them, you know, uncomfortable at work or at home or in their other — just walking around. That, I think, is good," Clinton continued. 

"I think that — I will be honest — the Franken case, for me, was a difficult case, a hard case. There may be things I don’t know. But I — maybe I’m just an old-fashioned person" said Clinton.

Of note, Al Franken wasn't accused of "crowding" anyone's space. Several women said he "forcibly kissed" and groped them

Meanwhile, according to a new Rasmussen poll, 53% of U.S. voters say Clinton is a sexual predator

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 24% of Likely U.S. Voters consider Clinton a victim of his political opponents. Fifty-three percent (53%) describe the ex-president as a sexual predator instead. Another 24% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) -Rasmussen

Last week, Clinton erupted at NBC's Craig Melvin over questions about Monica Lewinsky. Clinton accused Melving of giving a one-sided interview.

“This was litigated 20 years ago. Two-thirds of the American people sided with me,” Clinton said. “They were not insensitive that I had a sexual harassment policy when I was governor in the ’80s. I had two women chiefs of staff when I was governor. Women were over-represented in the attorney general’s office in the ’70s for their percentage of the bar.”

The former President continued, “I’ve had nothing but women leaders in my office since I left. You are giving one side and omitting facts.”

Melvin defended himself, saying that he was "not trying to present a side." 

In response, Juanita Broaddrick, who claims that Bill Clinton raped her on April 25, 1978 in an Arkansas hotel room, biting her upper lip so badly it was nearly severed, asks "WHY Doesn't any reporter have the guts to ask about Bill Clinton about the sexual assaults and rape???" adding "Monica was Consensual!!!"

The norms have changed. Huh? The ten commandments haven't. Wrong is wrong except in the minds of those who love their situational ethics ... like Canadian PM, Justin Trudeau, who wouldn't have assaulted that young lady years ago if he had known she was a reporter. (IOW - if she was anybody else, it would have been OK in his mind).

Good one jcaz.  Good old boy William Jefferson Clinton may hope history will treat him slightly more kindly because he has been married to a psychotic killer for 43 years.  Sorry Slick Willy, you're every bit as twisted as your evil bitch in your own way.  May you both spend eternity in hell.

Hey Bill -

I know you are a few milk-bones short of a box, so I'll try to use one-syllable words:

     If you and the other (usually a girl but I'm open minded) are consensual  (oops, too many syllables....how about "ok"), and having fun, that is good.

     If you are doing what you want and she is trying to get away, that is not good.

 

Call me if that isn't clear, I'll try to reword it for you.

 

(by the way:   historical note:    that isn't a new concept.....it has been accepted as good manners since neandrethal times.   yes, sometimes cavemen grab bitches by the pussy or the hair and haul them off to their caves to rape them, but usually that incurs bad karma, and almost always means you won't get a second date.    Try to be nice.)

That’s how sociopaths operate, it’s a one-way street where everything is always toward self gratification no matter the end result. It’s why the system likes them so much, because they are easy to control.

 

Not even psychopaths are this deranged and dangerous. Most psychopaths won’t kneel to these losers, because they know better. Sociopaths are the scum at the bottom of the swamp. They’re not in charge of anything, and they are never allowed to have too much freedom for obvious reasons.

I find it unbelievable that Slick Willie is so disconnected as to actually make such a statement. I find it even more unbelievable that the DNC isn't crowded around him and cankles 10 people deep desperately trying to get them to shut the fuck up. 

While I don't agree with a lot of the "me too" because I know a lot of those women knew exactly what they were bargaining with and for, someone seriously needs to control Willie's cocaine flow and seriously limit his public exposure at the cost of the DNC. 

And I fucking hate democrats.

Bill Clinton was in Austin today, at the UT campus, Bass performing hall. The Infowar conspiracy network was in force, they had signs and were yelling out Clinton was a rapist and a pedo for traveling to the island of under aged girls run by the Jew who was charged a pedo.

Then they infiltrated inside, one woman started going off, then after they tried to shut her up, another one goes off. The people who were clapping for Clinton, well they will ignore crimes, murder etc for their political side.

One yell out was about the Clinton foundation stealing the Haitian money, well if we were a good country with good people then the Clinton Foundation would have been investigated to find out about the Haitian money and all the foreign influence payments including Russia.

Also, the Clinton murder count was also yelled out. The protesters kept saying look it up, look it up. The reason is because the truth is not on MSM, so these brainwashed people don't know the truth because their entire lives have been programmed by TV, these people still watch TV and believe. That's why we have certified nut cases on the homosexual channel MSNBC and constant misinformation and political instigation and lies from Jew owned and controlled CNN.

Clinton is a criminal, his wife is a criminal but because of MSM, the truth is never told. Seth Rich is just one of the murders that will never see the light of day.

"that "norms have changed" regarding "what you can do to somebody against their will" "

Only in Bill's head. After all sex depends on the meaning of "is". And oral sex is not a sexual act.

The reality has always been that "what you do [sexually] to somebody against their will" is RAPE. Still is a crime to act "against an individual's will", unless you are representing the State.

Rape used to be a capital offense. Murder and Rape. The human rights of the convicted criminals have value exceeding society's need to enforce restraint on deviant behavior.

Consent does not apply in sexual activity with a 13 year old, Polanski. Even if her mother whored her out to keep her spot in the movie biz. Even if she was not a virgin.

People that live outside of the rule law and outside of civilized human behavior, will have a hard time in a world without rule of law. A very hard, but brief time.

This whole thing is like watching sociopaths and psychopaths going to war with each other.  

Because I am neither of those, and KNOWING that I can not complete with them within their own little power structures (which WE gave them license to use!), I mostly just shut up, observe and load ammo these days.

This whole fucking thing is going off the rails.

I looked in every way possible for a video of Clinton in front of an auditorium of Baptist preachers doing an onstage interview but I could not find it. I saw it live. If you want to know how good Slick Willie is you need to watch that interview. He was lost. He was scared. The crowd was not buying it. He was bombing and he knew he was bombing. His voice was shaking. He was sweating. He was being overly verbose. Then he caught them.

I so wish I could remember the catch. But, I cannot. But once he knew he had them then the tears started. Then he was the penultimate salesman. It was a 180, he knew he had them. He sold them a truckload of horseshit and those preachers were lapping it up. Wow!!! Don't fool yourself. That dude is GOOD! He is better than 95% of the actors in Hollywood today. He knows how to sell.

If someone finds the video post it. It truly is a great watch. Body language. The feel of Clinton. The feel of the interviewer. The feel of the crowd. The sudden screech of tires and doing a Rockford turn. It was impressive. I think he is a complete and utter asshole and I am still impressed to this day that he had the balls to pull it off.

I am making a compensation of more than 3800 dollars every week, that is great. Over a year back I was in an awful condition, jobless and ledger with just couple of bucks. Because of one of my companions who demonstrated to me a way where I could accumulate myself and making normal of 50-60 dollars for each hour… Amazing thing about it was that necessity for the activity is essential composing and solid internet...If you figure this could be for you at that point discover more here…

R.I.P.   "Mr Hankey" who has joined "The Fallen Spammers" -- banned for pathological over the top whackism.

THIS is an important week here in the SPAMMER's BUNKHOUSE.  You see, there are dozens of "personalities" living in this one single sad SPAMMER's sick little mind, which he calls "Spammer's Bunkhouse."  How sick is that?

This week I (we?) are celebrating SEVEN YEARS here on ZH, obsessively SPAMMING every thread we can with off-topic comments.

SAD BUT TRUE!!  I (we?) have wasted my (our) youth (or at least the last seven years) with at least one hand in my pants and the other hand SPAMMING ZH.  Yes, indeed.  DOZENS and DOZENS (maybe hundreds) of log-on's banned -- 
>>  "I made $7500 last week on the Internet sucking cock!": that's me.
>>  Biblicism: that's me.
>>  All the porn at Celebrity-leaks: that's me.
>>  Daily Westerner: that's me.

>>  "In the news....SPAMMER broomsticked by furious readers" -- registered in Nigeria) :: that's me TOO!! 

That's our life (all of us living in Master Spammer's Mind): mopping the floor at the Porn Cinema at 2am, working the drive-thru window at SONIC, sucking cock on the Internet, and spamming ZH with an enormous Excel spreadsheet of the log-on's of dozens of "digital friends" who upvote one another and virtually suck my little micro penis..

MEET my current imaginary friends.  We all live in one SPAMMER's HEAD but as for me, I have gone off the reservation.  These other "personalities" are pretty troubled.

Not any sense in arguing with any of them anymore, either. You are correct about it going off the rails, too. Its only a matter of time at this point. Loading ammo is a good idea too. No such thing as too much. Once it nears election time in a couple years, you won't be able to stroll into any walmart or academy and buy any amount of ammo you want at todays prices, either. Get it while you can.

Yeah, there's a double-standard and Bill is the poster child... 

The people who support Clinton, are also the enabling poster children.  They're OK with what Bill and Hillary in using force against others.  To be fair, Hillary only used words to disparage Bill's victims, along with attempts to lawyer them to the poor house.  Bill used physical force along with his position against his victims' will.

The norms have changed, no doubt about it. Clinton was a pig, perhaps a rapist, and used his position of power to "get some". Millions of other men of the same generation - and I'm one - may today be looked at as no better, but in the late 60s and early 70s they pushed for whatever was permitted but knew when a woman drew the line and they retreated. Clinton just didn't retreat, and that is a major difference.

It's that "against their will" part that makes the difference.
