Todd ‘Legitimate Rape’ Akin Wants Everyone To Know That Bill Clinton Is A Rapist

On Sunday, former Republican Congressman Todd Akin wrote an op-ed for the far-right conspiracy website WorldNetDaily. The column was in response to an article about him and his upcoming book, ‘Firing Back,’ that appeared in Politico last week. The failed 2012 Senate candidate is outraged that Politico misrepresented a quote from his book. He feels that the news publication edited a quote about former President Bill Clinton in order to protect both Clinton and his wife, who is thinking about running for the White House in 2016. Per Akin, Politico should have used the excerpt from his book exactly how it was written. In his book, Akin portrays Bill Clinton as “a credibly accused rapist.”

In the Politico article, the quote from the book is shown as such:

“[Bill Clinton] is giving the keynote speech at the Democratic convention in two weeks, and you want me to denounce a decent, God-fearing man for his inelegant comments about rape? No, not happening, and if the truth hurts, put some ice on it.”

Meanwhile, the direct quote from Akin’s book is as follows:

“A credibly accused rapist is giving the keynote speech at the Democratic convention in two weeks, and you want me to denounce a decent, God-fearing man for his inelegant comments about rape? No, not happening, and if the truth hurts, put some ice on it.”

The likely reason the Politico article writers bracketed the quote and inserted Bill Clinton’s name was to let the readers know exactly who Akin was referencing. Also, in the paragraph before the quote, the article points out that Akin wanted 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney to defend Akin’s “legitimate rape” comment and hammer Clinton over his past indiscretions and accusations that had been levied against him. Therefore, they weren’t necessarily trying to “protect” the ex-President or Mrs. Clinton.

Akin writes that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney should have defended him by using Clinton’s indiscretions and alleged comment that one woman “put some ice on that” just as Clinton was set to serve as a keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention. In 2012, Romney denounced Akin’s comments and urged him to drop out of the race.

However, for Akin, he sees only a big liberal conspiracy. He thinks the majority of the media out there is in on it; they just want Hillary to be the next POTUS and will do anything to make it so. In his op-ed, Akin throws multiple charges at Bill Clinton, basically stating that he has raped or assaulted a number of women in his life. He then states that Hillary Clinton is complicit in all of this as she would protect Bill Clinton in the press and sully the reputations of the accusers in the media. He also makes sure to tarnish Mrs. Clinton by repeating the discredited conservative meme that Hillary joked about getting an accused rapist a light sentence.

Hillary Clinton’s role in all of this was to manage what the Clinton camp called “bimbo eruptions” and denounce women like Lewinsky and former Clinton girlfriend Gennifer Flowers as liars. According to Broaddrick, Hillary even made a veiled threat to her after the rape occurred.

The Politico reporters chose not to know any of this. They insisted that Clinton’s “impeachment involved Lewinsky, not sexual assault.” This long-standing evasion of the rape accusations against Clinton have allowed him to regain his popularity and allowed Hillary to perpetuate the Democratic nonsense about the so-called “Republican War on Women.”

The bottom line is that my career was ruined for my linking the words “legitimate and rape.” The Clintons, meanwhile, have maintained their careers only because the media have consciously delegitimized the rape and assault charges against Bill Clinton. And don’t get me started on Hillary’s jokey radio interview in which she took credit for springing a man she knew to be guilty of raping a 12-year-old girl.

The word “hypocrisy” does not do justice to this outrage.

 

Ahhh, no right-wing screed would be complete without a nice heaping dose of victimology. See, Akin is the real victim here. His political career was ruined by speaking truth to power while a “credibly accused rapist” is admired and loved by the American people. It just is not fair, I tell you!

The thing is, Akin should have been ecstatic that a well-read publication like Politico gave him and his book exposure. Instead, he whines about not being given a fair shake and complains about the ‘liberal media.’ Akin, you can go far away now. You’ve proven, once again, that you don’t deserve to be treated like a legitimate political figure.

  1. If you dig behind the rhetoric of these idiots you will find that Akin didn’t dream this stuff up. Just like when Mitt got caught with his 47% malarky, This craziness is what goes on for sport in the private klaverns of the GOP. Notice, no matter how offensive or ignorant the speech of the GOP candidates or spokesmen, Never are they subject to public repudiation by their media spokesmen or national candidates. If these were not the feelings of the GOP in general, how are these fools still being supported by voters, Kochs, and media?
    A spade is a spade and racist misogynists are racist misogynist even when some have yet to be publicly caught expressing such.

  2. One more thought comes to mind, What has Todd Akin ever done for him to have access to write an OP-ED? Yes most of us know this OP-ED was not in legitimate media, but it is this worthless rightwing media, that keeps feeding the likes of Akin, Cain, Bachmann, Palin, Cardin, West, Walsh, Santorum, Tancredo and The GOP criminals North, Liddy, Vitter, Ensign, ect.

  3. Mr. Akin needs to learn that you can’t have it both ways. If he believes that there is “legitimate” and Illegitimate” rape, then he cannot accuse a man who had consensual sex a rapist.
    Since the GOP keeps insinuating that women scream rape all the time, when it isn’t, then why is it when a woman admits to having a consensual relationship, suddenly, when it is someone they don’t like, it’s rape??
    GOP, you have to make up your mind!!!!

  4. hey Todd where were you when Bush was invading TWO countries on LIes. Where where you when thousands of Americans were dying, and be wounded in two wars on lies.

    het Todd My little bank account is doing very well under Obama. I am afraid if the gop wins the WH I will lose it all.

    How many more wars will the GOP start

  5. You lost your job Akin because you’re an idiot. Get over your obcession with rape or at least pick a point of view. Oh, thats right, the GOP can’t agree on ANYTHING. Good luck, GOP will lose BIGTIME with absolutely no agenda. How can they ever govern? They are unable to get along with eachother let alone an entire country. Losers

  6. I´d just like to know where the GOP picks up all these idiots. Akin aside (who´s not only incredibly stupid, but hates women with a vengeance), even kooky Louisiana governor “Bobby” Jindal urged his party not to continue to be the “party of stupid”.

    Gotta be the attraction of “a guy/girl just like me” for the huge illiterate population. I cannot think of another reason why poor or not well-off people, many without jobs and teeth, would vote for those who´d love to see them disappear.

  7. @Peter J Kraus….We should all be grateful that these great illiterate, toothless masses hate Mormons just a little more than they hate blacks. Can you imagine the Executive orders Romney would scribe? Maybe change the name of Earth to Kolob, baptize all deceased Americans, demand a 10% tithe as a condition of citizenship. Oh, the possibilities. Now the GOP is again looking at Romney for yet another colossal embarrassment. Long live America!

  8. Apparently this scum bag spends his time obsessing about RAPE.So what does this make him???Clearly he gets on obsessing about it.

  9. Todd. One of the same voices you have in your head told me that he sent Monica there to give Bill head, so he could get re-elected and turn America’s economy around and leave a large surplus. He also told me he had forgiven Bill for his indiscretion. See how that fake lying about Yahweh forgiving you works now?

  10. Hes a sexual devient: Person with abnormal obsession with abnormal sexual behavior such as rape, incest, pedophelia, s&m. Fits this creep to a tee. I would’nt let him near my children.
