Okay so against my better judgment, I will tell you what I think of the state of Arkansas v. Taylor. It is disturbing. It is almost as disturbing as the whole “grab them by the…” commentary, so you might be wondering where is the media outrage? The spin? Or at least the acknowledgement that Hillary Rodham Clinton has a less than stellar record when it comes to responding compassionately to victims of sexual assault? What are the reasons for the relative silence about this? I think they are relatively complex.
Hillary’s failures, and there are quite a few, are relatively sophisticated, unlike Donald’s which are simplistic, loud, brash, in your face — and quite the fodder for a mainstream media machine that gets off on scaring the bejeezus out of people. It is hard to scare the bejeezus out of people with emails and the unseemly debriefing of a underage rape case. She doesn’t provide quite the material the media needs to freak people out.
But it’s not quite that simple. It’s not just that the media has decided to crucify Trump while giving HRC a pass on a lot of stuff. Clearly, a lot of stuff is going on behind some scenes. I don’t know what it is or why this election is playing out this way. There is a lot that is hidden. No matter what happens a lot of people will be very unhappy.
