Double Standard For Dems When It Comes To Sexual Assault


There has always been a double standard for Dems when it comes to sexual assault from Clinton on down to now Biden. There is a saying that goes when it comes to democrats if it were not for double standards they’d have no standards at all.

When Paula Jones brought her allegations against Clinton saying he exposed himself to her and wanted her to “kiss it.” She immediately told a feminist group and their reaction was “Well at least he took no for an answer.” About 20 years later Paula received  $900,000 from Clinton to withdraw her charges.

When Kathleen Willey said Clinton had forced her against the wall and shoved his tongue down her throat the feminists said, “well she was dressed   provocatively and came on to him”

When Juanita Broderick brought allegations of rape by Clinton the feminists said, “Well that happened so long ago.”

When Monica Lewinsky came forward they said, “Well he’s under a lot of pressure and needs some release.” Clinton said exactly that recently in an interview saying he was under a lot of pressure and he needed Monica for some relief.” Imagine how she feels when she heard that.

When Brett Kavanaugh was at his hearing Christine Ford claimed he and a bunch of other guys spiked the punch at a party pinned her down at a party and were all over her even though she had no collaborating witnesses and couldn’t remember where the house was or what time of day it was. The people she mentioned who she claimed were there all denied being there and their whereabouts were verified.

Still, the feminists all came out and said they believed her and Hillary Clinton said when it comes to sexual assault you always believe the woman. This coming from the woman whose husband abused women left and right and who enabled her husband dragged his victims through the mud.

Hillary you-have-a-right-to-be-believedWhich brings us to Joe Biden. The silence from the left regarding an increasingly credible sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden has been deafening, particularly in light of the furor that surrounded claims made against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.

Joe Biden wit hhands up

Nowhere is that blatant disparity more obvious than in the actions of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who weighed in multiples times against Kavanaugh, but has yet to directly address the claim lodged against Biden, whom she recently endorsed for president, The Daily Caller reported.

Pelosi with regard to Kavanaugh, whom she clearly opposed even before his main accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, came forward with her vague allegations of sexual assault from decades prior.

As the Daily Caller points out, Pelosi tweeted twice against Kavanaugh after he was first nominated in July 2018, first on July 10 and again on July 17, with warnings that Kavanaugh’s confirmation could result in a rollback of abortion right

On Sept. 26, Pelosi tweeted out the hashtag “#BelieveSurvivors” and noted how “proud” she was to stand with other Democrats in support of Ford. That was followed with another tweet a day later that featured a photo of her sitting at home and watching Ford’s “deeply moving” opening statement at the Kavanaugh hearings, again with the #BelieveSurvivors hashtag.

Fast-forward a year and a half, and Pelosi has remained noticeably silent with regard to Tara  Reade’s allegation that Biden groped and penetrated her in a deserted hallway in a Senate office building when she served as an aide to the then-senator from Delaware in 1993.

cartoonofdoublestandardReade has some corroborating testimony since her mother made a phone call to Larry Kingin1993 and she told several co-workers of the incident at the time. Reade publicly claimed last month that Biden sexually assaulted her back in 1993 when she worked as an aide in his Senate office. Reade also says that she was fired when she considered going to authorities to report the then-senator’s behavior.

In fact, Pelosi has not only ignored the allegations from Reade — which are just as credible, if not more so, than those put forward by Ford — she has also issued an endorsement for Biden’s candidacy and has refused to respond to multiple requests for comment on the matter from the Daily Caller, and presumably other independent or right-leaning media outlets as well.

It has been said by some that if Democrats didn’t have double standards then they wouldn’t have any standards at all, and that has never been more evident than in the highly partisan, wholly disparate reactions on the left to the allegations from Ford and Reade.

Unfortunately, while some media outlets like the Daily Caller and others are attempting to hold Pelosi and others to account for their past comments when compared to the current situation, much of the liberal media has joined with the Democrats and provided cover for their blatant hypocrisy.

In Reade’s written testimony she says. “I handed [Biden] the [gym bag]. He greeted me. He remembered my name. And then we were alone,” Reade outlined her allegation against Biden on a progressive podcast that aired last week. “It was the strangest thing. There was no like exchange really. He just had me up against the wall. I was wearing like a skirt, a business skirt. I wasn’t wearing stockings. It was kind of a hot day that day, and I was wearing heels…I remember I was wearing a blouse, and he just had me up against the wall. And the wall was cold. It happened all at once…his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. Yeah, and he went down my skirt but then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers, and he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me. He said several things. I can’t remember everything he said.”

“It seemed surreal,” she added. “I felt sick because when he pulled back he looked annoyed, and he said something else to me that I don’t want to say. And then he said, I must have looked shocked. He grabbed me by the shoulders… and he said, ‘You’re OK, you’re fine.’ And then he walked away.”


Reade has since alleged corroboration to her accusation, citing a woman she says is her mother calling into “Larry King Live” and vaguely detailing an issue her daughter was having with a then-senator. Two others have come forward to corroborate elements of Reade’s allegations, too, according to a report from Business Insider.


Reade recently interviewed with Fox News and the Daily Caller News Foundation about her frustrations at not being taken seriously.

Reade told Fox, “I’d like my history with Biden to be examined in a dignified way that’s not slanted by political bias or sensationalized. I’d like a deeper conversation about the fact that sexual harassment and sexual assault do not have a political agenda. It’s an equal opportunity offender.”

And she is exactly right. This shouldn’t be about politics. It should be about listening to the accusations, finding evidence, or corroborating testimonies and working towards the truth.

Reade made her allegations public on March 24, and yet since then, only a minute number of stories have been written or aired on even possibility of the situation. CNN contacted her saying they would “consider doing story” but as of yet hasn’t.

ABC News, while actually going through with an interview, has only sat on those words since receiving them. Sasha Pezenik, who interviewed Reade, says her “producer’s not interested right now.”

I’m sorry, but when the man who half of the nation is preparing to vote for in a few short months gets allegations about sexual assault thrown at him, what kind of news producer isn’t “interested?”

Furthermore, as the Washington Free Beacon reported, as of April 15, “Joe Biden has been asked 81 questions in over two hours worth of media interviews since a former staffer in his U.S. Senate office accused him of sexual assault three weeks ago. He hasn’t fielded a single question about the allegation. Biden has sat for 10 interviews with major news outlets since March 24, when his former aide, Tara Reade, accused him of pinning her against a wall and penetrating her with his fingers in 1993 when she was a staff assistant in his office. None of Biden’s 10 interlocutors have asked him to comment on the allegation.”

It’s doubtful Biden could even remember the incident since he can’t seem to remember the day before, he fumbles through questions, gets confused, can’t remember names of world leaders and forgets where he is half the time.

Bidens’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield was quick to put out a statement saying it “absolutely did not happen.” But as Reade noted, the “campaign didn’t have their hands underneath my clothes and then arranged for me to be fired.” It was Biden, and he hasn’t said two words about it.”

tarareadeandBidenReade told Fox News, “I think it’s shocking that this much time has passed and that he is an actual nominee for president and they’re not asking the questions.” she continued, saying, “I guess my question is if this were Donald Trump, would they treat it the same way? If this were Brett Kavanaugh, did they treat it the same way?”

Aside from Reade, there are at least seven other women who’ve accused Biden of sexual misconduct or inappropriate touching, as outlined by The Cut.


Lucy Flores

Last year, former Nevada lieutenant governor nominee Lucy Flores alleged that Biden “smelled her hair and gave her ‘a big slow kiss’ on the back of her head at an event for her 2014 campaign. In that moment, she wrote, she felt ’embarrassed’ and ‘shocked,’” The Cut reported.

“I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me,” said Flores.

Amy Lappos

A former congressional aide for U.S. representative Jim Himes in 2009, Amy Lappos, has alleged “Biden touched and rubbed his nose against hers during a political fund-raiser,” The Cut said.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” claimed Lappos. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

“He was the vice president,” she said of choosing to forgo filing a complaint. “I was a nobody.”\

D.J. Hill

D.J. Hill was one of two women to come forward with allegations in The New York Times, which referred to Biden’s conduct as ‘tactile politics’ in a report published on April 2,” The Cut reported. “At a 2012 at a fundraising event in Minneapolis, Hill alleges that Biden rested his hand on her shoulder, and then started to move it down her back, which left her feeling ‘very uncomfortable.’”

“Only he knows his intent,” said Hill, adding, “If something makes you feel uncomfortable, you have to feel able to say it.”

Caitlyn Caruso

Caitlyn Caruso told the New York Times Biden hugged her “just a little bit too long” and laid his hand on her thigh after she shared a story of alleged sexual assault.

“It doesn’t even really cross your mind that such a person would dare perpetuate harm like that,” Caruso said. “These are supposed to be people you can trust.”

Ally Coll

“On April 3, Ally Coll told The Washington Post that at a 2008 reception, Biden squeezed her shoulders, complimented her smile, and held her ‘for a beat too long,’” The Cut detailed. “A young Democratic staffer at the time, Coll said her initial reaction was to shrug it off. But she told the Post she now feels the alleged incident was inappropriate, adding, ‘There’s been a lack of understanding about the way that power can turn something that might seem innocuous into something that can make somebody feel uncomfortable.’”

Sofie Karasek

Sexual assault survivor Sofie Karasek says Biden violated her personal space in 2016 when he held her hands and touched his forehead to hers at the Oscars, a moment captured by photographers and praised in the media.

“He emphasized that he wants to connect with people and, of course, that’s important,” Karasek told The Washington Post of Biden’s video discussing his tendency to violate women’s space. “But again, all of our interactions and friendships are a two-way street … Too often it doesn’t matter how the woman feels about it or they just assume that they’re fine with it.”

Vail Kohnert-Yount

Yount alleged that when she was a White House intern in the spring of 2013, Biden ‘put his hand on the back of [her] head and pressed his forehead to [her] forehead’ when he introduced himself, and that he called her a ‘pretty girl,’” The Cut reported. “She was ‘so shocked,’ she said, ‘that it was hard to focus on what he was saying.’ Though she told the Post that she doesn’t believe Biden’s conduct constituted sexual misconduct, she described it as ‘the kind of inappropriate behavior that makes many women feel uncomfortable and unequal in the workplace.’”

Congress is above the law. You will never see a Democratic Senator arrested.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has come out with a glowing endorsement of Biden.

The Trump campaign was quick to comment, “There is no greater concentration of Democrat establishment than Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton together,” said Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. “Both of them carry the baggage of decades in the Washington swamp and both of them schemed to keep the Democrat nomination from Bernie Sanders. President Trump beat her once and now he’ll beat her chosen candidate.”

Biden sexual assault accuser Tara Reade, in an exclusive to Fox News had her say as well, “I voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. I voted for her in the primary. I’m a lifelong Democrat. But yet, what I see now is someone enabling a sexual predator and it was my former boss, Joe Biden, who raped me. Hillary Clinton has a history of enabling powerful men to cover up their sexual predatory behaviors and their inappropriate sexual misconduct. We don’t need that for this country. We don’t need that for our new generation coming up that wants institutional rape culture to change.”

On April 27, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president. She called him the “personification of hope and courage, values, authenticity, and integrity,” during her video endorsement. The Democratic leader seems to have forgotten he’s also accused of violating Tara Reade, a former Biden Senate staffer.

It’s now obvious the #MeToo movement was hijacked by the Left with the purpose of being used to attack the Right. They’ve gone after President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Their guys like Joe Bide and Bill Clinton is off-limits though.
