Thirty-one years in the past, a media-anointed secular saint named Anita Hill uncorked some sexual harassment expenses in opposition to then-Supreme Court docket nominee Clarence Thomas that she couldn’t substantiate.
Thomas known as it a part of a “high-tech lynching.” However Hill, who grew to become a millionaire creator and a professor of “social coverage, regulation, and ladies’s research” at Brandeis College, has been celebrated ever since.
On Sept. 27, Hill appeared on CBS and MSNBC to advertise the paperback version of her newest e book, “Believing: Our Thirty-Yr Journey to Finish Gender Violence.” The writer singles out a sappy e book overview from Nationwide Public Radio, which first tried to take down Thomas with Hill’s tawdry tales.
Danielle Kurtzleben raved that Hill’s e book was “[a]n elegant, impassioned demand that America see gender-based violence as a cultural and structural downside that hurts everybody, not simply victims and survivors. … It’s at occasions downright virtuosic within the threads it weaves collectively.”
The San Francisco Chronicle known as it “a courageous, overtly clever and finally hopeful womanifesto.” Womanifesto?
Should you weren’t round for the Hill-Thomas hearings, you may need thought mistakenly that Thomas was accused of committing violence in opposition to Hill. A Gloria Steinem blurb for the e book says, “Anita Hill’s braveness on display screen woke up a nation to gender violence.”
“CBS This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil touted Hill as she smiled on digital camera: “You understand the identify. She modified the story about harassment in America.” Co-host Gayle King interrupted with gush: “One other badass! One other badass black girl!” (This got here after CBS’ Anthony Mason had touted “The Lady King” performed by Viola Davis as a “machete-wielding badass.”)
Later, King recalled 1991: “The visuals are unforgettable. She was talking to an all-white-male Senate panel … Hill has since devoted her profession to combating gender-based violence.”
It bought bizarre on the finish when Hill claimed, “We inform ladies if a boy picks on them, teases them, pinches them, pulls their bra strap or pulls down their pants, it’s as a result of they like them, and what we’re doing is setting them up. And it’s boys being boys.”
What? Who’s telling boys it’s OK to tug down a lady’s pants? Then, Hill added the G-word: “We’re grooming them, primarily, for later abuse, and we’re actually grooming the boys to say that the one applicable habits is abusive and aggressive habits.”
Reality test, please?
On MSNBC, Hill appeared with new host Alex Wagner in a very bizarre section blurring collectively the Dobbs resolution overturning Roe v. Wade with the violent “misogyny” of the Jan. 6 rioters. In each interviews, Hill touted a 2013 dissent by the since-deceased Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg about how the conservatives are on an “unrestrained course” to “corral” civil rights.
The sugary NPR e book overview identified that Hill wrote: “It wasn’t that politicians didn’t care about violence in opposition to girls; it was that ending gender-based violence mattered lower than different political ambitions, like enlarging the occasion base and beating [Hillary] Clinton.”
It might assist liberals in the event you pay no consideration to the unpleasant proven fact that these feminist icons Steinem and Hill got here speeding to Invoice Clinton’s protection in 1998 when his sexual harassment and sexual assault expenses boomeranged into the Monica Lewinsky probe. Republicans had been speaking about Clinton’s abusive habits towards Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick, however the feminists had “different political ambitions.” Slick Willie needed to be saved.
Feminists marvel why many ladies don’t establish with them. One downside is feminists will put their coverage targets (like untrammeled abortion) forward of no matter sexual abuse pro-abortion politicians have dished out.
Anita Hill isn’t a saint. She’s simply one other woke professor making a reasonably penny.
