The fall of liberal icons continues apace as new sex scandals seem to appear by the minute.
For Bill Clinton in the 1990s it was, “It doesn’t interfere with his job performance, it’s just sex, and besides, everybody does it. Let’s Move On!” The liberal media, which was and is most of the media, was perfectly happy to move on to demonizing anyone who had the temerity to suggest that the President of the United States should not be getting blow jobs from White House interns. Prove it!, said the mainstream media, down to every last female reporter on the left which was almost every female reporter. Then a semen stain on a blue dress popped out and proved it with DNA. So the female reporters reverted to the original meme of “It’s just sex” and “everybody does it.” One such reporterette, Nina Burleigh of Time Magazine, even offered Clinton a blow job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. “I’d be happy to give him [oral sex] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal,” she said.
“Move On” was the common buzzword for all of Clinton’s sex scandals and that even became the name of an ultra liberal website named appropriately Move On.org.
Things are a whole lot different now. Everyone is outraged. It’s a sex scandal Tsunami.
What happened? Did Democrats have a moral awakening? No way. They knew all along that every charge of sexual impropriety Clinton was accused of was true. All of them and there were many. They didn’t care because he brought power, money and influence to the Democrat party. But now, it’s a little different. Clinton has new sex allegations, Hillary has lost twice, and Democrats now see the Clintons as dragging then down instead of holding them up. So, the Clintons have to go. But nobody should think this has anything to do with a sudden discovery of decency. It’s still what it always was, just politics. They just believe sanctimonious virtue signaling is what they have to do now, for their political future.
