That so-called special place in hell is getting a bit crowded.
Remember when former Secretary of State Madelyn Albright introduced Hillary Clinton at an event in New Hampshire last year, tellng the crowd that "there was a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other?" The phrase is catching on!
Ivanka Trump, speaking about the sexual abuse allegations against Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, told the Associated Press that there’s a "special place in hell for people who prey on children . . . "
And then there is former Clinton adviser and Democratic strategist Doug Schoen who said that there was "a special place in hell" for Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who, after accepting endorsements, funding, and support from the Clintons — and assuming Clinton’s Senate seat — recently said that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after the affair with Monica Lewinsky.
If Gillibrand deserved a special place in hell for being ungrateful to the Clintons, why not LaVar Ball, father of UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball, one of the three UCLA basketball players arrested in China for shoplifting, who were released after President Trump intervened with Chinese President Xi.
Ball said that Trump didn’t deserve any credit for getting his son and his two teammates released; and, that if he was "going to thank somebody, I’d probably thank President Xi."
Talk about ingratitude. No wonder Trump called him an "ungrateful fool."
He should talk to the family of American college student Otto Warmbier who died a few days after returning home in a vegetative state coma from North Korean detention.
As my friend Richie said, Ball’s son’s conduct shows how "horrible a job he did as a father in raising a son who grew up thinking it was okay to steal. He should be thanking the president!"
Many would argue that, if any group merits a reserved seat in that "special place," it is those feminists and left-wing women who looked the other way when any of their liberal male politicos were accused of sexual harassment or misconduct.
Silence was and is the rule!
The National Organization of Women (NOW) and other women’s groups did not go on the warpath against Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., for his philandering, including being involved in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. They were also silent during the travails of former President Bill Clinton and the many allegations of sexual misconduct including the Lewinsky affair.
And, note that they have not called for the resignation of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., based on the allegations of sexual misconduct by two women.
It’s a virtual certainty that they will not call for the resignation of Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the longest serving member in the U.S. House and the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, as has his hometown paper the Detroit Free Press, for allegations of sexual misconduct. And of course, they would not dare attack or criticize a black liberal Democrat.
You can also be assured that the most vocal female members of the Congressional Black Caucus, who are so high and mighty against Trump Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., and the Democrats’ favorite diva Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., will remain silent on their Caucus colleague.
In that regard, we have not heard any outrage from the 16 female Democrats in the U.S. Senate regarding the allegations against their colleague Mr. Franken.
Those who would usually be running to the microphones and cameras to attack a conservative or Republican accused of such conduct to bolster their illusionary hopes for a chance at a 2020 nomination have run for the door — Gillibrand, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
Of course, let’s keep in mind that feminists and liberal Democrats will tolerate almost anything from a male politician as long as he supports abortions or partial birth abortions. Enter Alabama Democratic Senate candidate and abortion supporter Doug Jones!
That’s why many would agree that they deserve that special place in hell for their hypocrisy on such an important life and death issue — the killing of innocent, unborn children.
Finally, as we enter the home-stretch on tax reform, we will see how many Senate Republicans will deprive the nation of over-due and well-deserved tax reform to foster economic growth and job creation.
To those who do, there will be a special kind of place for them, maybe not in the hell as discussed above, but in every politician’s form of hell — defeat at the ballot box.
