Discussion: Anita Hill Won't Support Joe Biden After Disappointing Call Earlier This Month

“To this day I regret I couldn’t come up with a way to get her the kind of hearing she deserved, given the courage she showed by reaching out to us,” Biden said last month. He continued, “If only I had been Chairman”.

I will take my cues from her and continue to oppose Biden.

“Paraphrasing Hill, the Times reported: ‘She said she cannot support Mr. Biden’…”

And if he ends up as the Democratic nominee running against Trump?

Purity will prevail, and we’ll have 4 more years of Donnie, the p*ssy-grabbing, porn-star-f’ing, adulterous, multiple divorcee…

So.Much.Winning.

He called her a week before announcing his candidacy? After all these years? Really? Talk about unmitigated gall!

“To this day I regret I couldn’t come up with a way to get her the kind of hearing she deserved, given the courage she showed by reaching out to us,” Biden said last month.

Oh please! And she didn’t reach out to you, dumbass. She was interviewed by the FBI, told the truth about Thomas, and was subsequently called as a witness. I wouldn’t have thought it possible that I could have even greater disdain for this creep.

He’s not going to be the nominee.

Well, I think he’s lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut but if he were to become the nominee I would vote for him. But he’s not going to be the nominee.

That’s the crux of the biscuit. As much as I loathe Bernie, and a handful of other Dem candidates, I will vote for whomever the DEM nominee is, as EVERY Democrat should.

Donnie is by galatic orders of magnitude the greatest evil.

That’s right Ms Hill. Stay strong. I admire you.

She’s a smart black woman. I suspect she would pull the lever for him if we are stuck with him as our nominee.

As her Biden dislike is on a personal level, she may leave the President slot blank. If she lives in Maryland or other solid blue state, I wouldn’t begrudge her(but really only her)

And why does anyone have to support Biden, or Harris, or Beto, or Sanders? And why just because one doesnt support Biden now that they are accused of being against the Party?

These accusations are Bullshit.

While it took a long while for Biden to apologize directly to Anita Hill (as he absolutely should have done), it didn’t take him long to step in it again as a presidential candidate.

Brave woman. I remember watching the hearings on tv and thinking - boy she has guts.

Now that Biden is officially in, everyone will be reminded of why he’s never won a primary in the past.

No one is accusing her of being anti party. That’s a little dramatic. But the fact remains, after the primary slug fest between our candidates, we will have a choice. Four more years of Trump or no?

You can always ask her again at that point.

 

There is a certain resemblance, I agree.

Joe is the front-runner, mostly because people haven’t really looked at him carefully. He won’t be the nominee. Stuff will continue to come out, and Anita Hill will be a large problem for him, as will the Crime Bill, the Obama-Biden failures to put any banksters in prison, the Obama-Biden failure to actually protect homeowners during the recovery, and on and on and on.

Kurt Eichenwald already went through everything Biden did during the hearing by creating a long Twitter thread explaining it and he stated that nothing Biden did was improper or unethical. Biden even backed up Anita in a few moments of the testimony and shot down the witnesses trying to discredit her.

Honestly, I don’t know what would satisfy Anita Hill at this point? Does she wish Biden wore a T-Shirt that said “I stand with Anita” during the hearing?

Compare how Biden ran his hearing to how Chuck Grassley ran the farce that was the Brett Kavanaugh hearing where the Republicans couldn’t bother to ask Dr. Ford a question by themselves and needed a woman to do it for them. And then their balls suddenly dropped the moment they didn’t have to look at a woman and gave Kavanaugh glowing praise.

We need to focus on the main goal, getting Trump out of office for good. No more stupid infighting over purity once the primaries are over.

My ursine supporting buddy didn’t say that, but on behalf of me, it’s going to be very interesting to see whether there is substantial unity after the 2020 convention.
