Hillary Clinton's website removed promise to 'believe' all sexual assault survivors

She probably wiped the web site clean, like with a “cloth.”

From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton’s campaign website removed a pledge to believe all sexual assault victims earlier this year after historic rape allegations against her husband re-emerged.
On January 29, her website’s page on campus sexual assault said victims have ‘a right to be believed, and we’re with you.’ On February 4, that quote was gone.
The alteration came after the re-emergence of 73-year-old Juanita Broaddrick’s claim that Bill Clinton had raped her in 1978 and Hillary had threatened her to keep quiet, BuzzFeed reported Monday.
The Internet Archive Wayback Machine, which stores old versions of webpages for posterity, shows a quote attributed to Hillary Clinton on her site’s campus sex assault page on January 29.

I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault: Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you.’ But on a version of the page from February 4, that last sentence is completely missing. As of Monday the shorter quote is still on the page.
That change occurred at the same time as Broaddrick’s historic rape allegations – which she had made decades before – were back in the media spotlight, and she herself was tweeting about her claims.

On January 5 Broaddrick tweeted ‘Was dreading seeing my abuser on tv campaign trail for enabler wife……but his physical appearance reflects ghosts of past are catching up.’

And on January 6, she said: ‘I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.’ That same day she came out in support of Donald Trump in an interview with The Hill.
Broaddrick, a former nursing home administrator, claims that Bill Clinton, then 31, raped her in 1978, in a hotel where a nursing seminar was being held. She had previously met him while campaigning for him as Arkansas attorney general, and says she had arranged to get coffee with him to talk business. At the last second, she says, he asked if he could meet her in her hotel room, where he bit her lip so hard she bled, raped her on the bed and left.
She also says that she bumped into Hillary Clinton shortly after at a political rally, and that Clinton shook her hand and thanked her for everything she had done. Bill Clinton was ‘the main person that regulated my business and my income,’ Broaddrick told BuzzFeed, and so the remark felt like a threat to her.
The former President denied Broaddrick’s claim through his lawyer in 1999, and has never been charged.
The 73-year-old signed up to Twitter in 2009, but aside from three brief messages about her daily life she remained silent on the website until September 2015.
On the 14th of that month Hillary Clinton tweeted: ‘To every survivor of sexual assault…You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.’ The following day, Broaddrick made her first tweet in six and a half years: ‘Thoroughly disgusting–Hillary’s comments on rape. Shame on you, Hillary, shame on you!!
She then began a twitter campaign to bring her claims back into the spotlight, also making media appearances and performing interviews. The re-emergence of Broaddrick’s claim was joined by those of Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey, both of whom accused him of sexually inappropriate conduct in the 1990s.

In May Clinton was asked in a New Hampshire appearance: ‘You say that all rape victims should be believed, but would you say that about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and/or Paula Jones?’  ‘Well,’ she chuckled, ‘I would say that everybody should be believed at first – until they are disbelieved based on evidence.’

Dr Eowyn . . . that fabulous picture says it all! I’d like a tee shirt with that picture on it. It is wonderfully provocative.

From 1992 to 1996, I taught high school English at a New York City high school (or I imagine I tried to!) We had an assistant principal who actually was WORSE than Hillary! She merely lacked the Opportunity. I can understand something. It is the nature of a politician to be a wheeler-dealer, and very few there are, indeed, to do it well. Fewer still are those who, doing it well, seem to take delight in it! Yes, Bill Clinton, for all of his flaws and trials and tribulations, was one of the few who knew how to play the… Read more »

Very nicely done. I have known and worked with people like this. Of course, none of them had the “opportunity” that she has, but some of them may even have had worse cases of the malady. I certainly think you’ve described it perfectly. Creating chaos in order to be a “hero” is a classic symptom. And, as you say, what condition would someone with that proclivity desire? Why….., chaos of course. These people are boils on the bum of humanity. There’s a certain irony to the fact that it always seems like those kids you detested in high school end… Read more »

And what of that pedophilic molestor that raped a 12 year old girl that billary helped keep out of prison and then laughed about later? should that 12 year old have been believed? see here: https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2016/05/15/feminist-hillary-clinton-laughed-recalling-her-defense-of-man-who-raped-12-year-old-girl/
SHowing that billary can’t deliver on what she says is obvious, but the question is, assuming she or satan#2 trump gets the office, what are people going to do about that? Both will be sure to continue to serve the same slithering bosses that obomber, bush, clinton, the bush before him et al. served. So what is to be done?
