"A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.… A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously." This is from Bernie Sanders' rape fantasies. "Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like 'Girl 12 raped by 14 men' sell so well?" he continued.
It is a small measure of fighting Sanders with one arm tied behind her back that Hillary Clinton did not forcefully use Sanders' rape fantasies against him in 2016. Many liberals made excuses for Bernie while the Bernie bros were out behaving like the men in Bernie's fantasies.
As we re-litigate events from decades ago, as liberals who excused Bill Clinton seek moral high ground against Roy Moore, as Hollywood celebrities get pilloried for decades old behavior, and as news personalities lose jobs for years old tweets, maybe we should finally have a discussion about Bernie Sanders' rape fantasies.
Because, despite protestations, we really have not had that conversation. The media has covered Sanders' disgusting writings only to the extent they can point to them and say they'd been covered. But they have covered them in on the most minimal sense. Ask people at the periphery of politics, not the diehard obsessives, and they'll have never heard of this stuff. But this man was a contender who almost was the Democrats' nominee for President. Democrats caught Donald Trump on tape talking about celebrities being able to grab women by their genitals. The Democrats' almost nominee wrote about gang raping women.
