• COMMENTARY: Donald Trump has Bill Clinton and the 900-pound Gorilla in the Room

    I read that a Republican said, “That because of the revelations of what Trump said in the 11 year-old tape, he didn’t know how he was going to explain to his 15-year-old daughter what the words meant that Trump used.” Because of this tape, he was not going to support Trump.  I wonder how that supposed Republican will explain to his daughter that the 42nd President was unfaithful to his wife by having sexual relations in the Oval Office? How will he explain that Bill Clinton was impeached for perjury for his Monica Lewinsky affair or that he paid $850,000 to Paula Jones for a sexual abuse case? How will he tell his daughter that the women’s movement was set back and that Democratic liberal women sacrificed their progress to defend the serial rapist?

    I hope that Americans, especially the millennia’s, learn that Hillary Clinton had the job of destroying the reputation of those women he abused. Some have suggested that she was in charge of the “Bimbo Eruption Squad,” and according to Dianne Rigali in her piece, Hillary Hopes You’ve Forgotten – Have You?” on Rense.com, Hillary knew that she had a predator for a husband, but her ambition led her to try and save their political careers. A good friend of the Clintons and a long time supporter, James Carville, said of some of the women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.” I never understood Carville’s intentions; did he think that the women accusers were in it for the money, or that they were just white trash and the women who lived in those trailer parks had no redeeming human value?

    I don’t want to review the words that Trump used in the tape, but what I do want to say is that many people are reacting out of political correctness and not reality. The Democrats are outraged at what he said, but they are not outraged by what Clinton did to those women. I understand how some people, especially women, are offended by what Trump said, but as Shakespeare once said in the play Hamlet, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” You will see later that it is apparently acceptable for her campaign to use F**K to explain themselves, but not Trump.

    The language of America, like it or not, has become less civil and even cruder. Look at the protests around the country and count how many times the TV networks have to bleep out the vile profanity used by protesters. How does the congressman explain the bleep to his daughter? How about the language used on reality TV; it also has to be bleeped out. The newspapers put **** in place of the letters so they don’t spell out the profanity. How many people can figure out the real word when a paper or a magazine uses F**K? We know what it means.

    In the movies today, how frequently do the “R” rated movies give us all kinds of lewd and vile words? Here is a current example: the day the Trump tape was released, the movie, “The Girl on the Train” was released and grossed almost $10 million the first day. If you have not seen the movie, try and guess how many times F**K was used? Was the moviegoer offended? Some perhaps, but for the most part the majority were not. Why? Because the foul language fit into the story. How many times a day in tense situations do people, educated or not educated, regardless of race, sex, or education, use foul language?  Many times foul words are used in everyday, normal conversation, regardless of temperament. It is a fact of life in America and to ignore this reality is to ignore the 900-pound gorilla in the room.

    Did the Congressman allow his daughter to read the bestseller novel, “The Girl on the Train,” by the way, written by a woman? Did she ask her father to explain the triangle, sexual relationship, or the words used in the book or movie? No, because no matter how much we may dislike the use of foul language, it is part of our culture and the language of younger people. I can understand how some people would be offended, but they are not being realistic America has become more crude and rude. The old saying we used when I was growing up was, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

    Does foul language in books and movies about sex, or the loose talk among people of all generations lead to serial rapists?  I don’t know.  But I do know that a significant number of both men’s and women’s lives were destroyed by the actions of Bill and Hillary, and for a long time nobody paid any attention to the 900 pound rapist in the room. Perhaps we will give these men and women some peace knowing that the truth will finally be told to the American people, as to who the Clinton’s really are? This just in, Jesse Lehrich foreign policy spokesman adviser to the Clinton campaign tweeted last night. “go f**k yourself.#debate” Apparently the Clinton campaign uses the same language that she is so upset about. This smacks of a double standard, its okay for us to use F**K, but not for Trump.

    I hope that people will finally wake up to the reality of life in American today, exemplified by the Clinton’s, and if enough people really want change, not just lip service, to a more civil society, then maybe change will come.
