“Woke” is when Feminists suddenly realize that the clear message they sent in 1998: “If a powerful Progressive man sexually assaults you – you’re on your own,” was a less than optimal choice.
“I would be happy to give him [Bill Clinton] a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”
– Nina Burleigh, 1998
It sucks to be someone promoting Monica Lewinsky envy.
“If all the sexual allegations now swirling around the White House turn out to be true, President Clinton may be a candidate for sex addiction therapy. But feminists will still have been right to resist pressure by the right wing and the media to call for his resignation or impeachment.“
– Gloria Steinem, 1998
Part of the ‘swirling’ was a allegation of rape. Steinem couldn’t distinguish the fish of convenience from the bicycles of feminist betrayal.
Skipping forward a decade, Feminism still was not woke…
Polanski was not guilty of ‘rape-rape’, says Whoopi Goldberg – 2009
Whoopi had a point. Polanksi was guilty of rape, rape, rape, rape, rape, rape, rape, rape, rape, rape, rape, rape.
Actress defends Weiner, says ‘everyone lies about sex’ – 2011
Maybe that’s why Janeane Garofalo also thinks, “Sex is the quickest way to ruin a friendship.“
Skipping forward another decade (just this week), Feminism may be woking…
Liberals ‘move on’ from defending Bill Clinton’s sexual conduct – 2017
Chelsea Handler apologizes to Bill Clinton accuser Juanita Broaddrick: ‘I believe you’ – 2017
Feminist Wokeness to its own principles only took two decades and the political necessity to purge the Clintons from public life before the next Presidential election. But they’re starting to pretend to get it (“get it” is the phrase “woke” is replacing).
So. When can we expect an apology from Hillary? She can’t possibly run in 2020 without one.
