Hypocrisy Alert: Hillary Clinton: When You See Women Being Mistreated, You Need to Speak Out

"Be that person, be that man who doesn't let it go on, who stands up or speaks out," Clinton said on Monday.

Hillary Clinton made a rather tone-deaf statement while speaking about women’s rights at Georgetown University on Monday.

The moderator of the panel asked Clinton what role men should play in the advancement of women.

“Being born into a minority is hard. It’s hard everywhere, and if you find yourself in a role where you can speak out and speak up and not go along, either with remaining silent or even chiming in, about derogatory remarks about women and girls and also minorities, but to focus on women and girls, you know, be that person. Be that man who doesn’t let it go on, who stands up or speaks out,” Clinton said.

Clinton’s statement that people should speak out when they see wrongdoing directed at women seems remarkably hypocritical given her own past actions that have recently come to light.

The New York Times recently reported that during Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, she chose to shield a top adviser who had been accused of sexual harassment.

According to the New York Times:

“A senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign who was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate was kept on the campaign at Mrs. Clinton’s request, according to four people familiar with what took place.”

“Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling, and the young woman was moved to a new job.”

These revelations were met with backlash from Democrats and members of the media.

Now, however, Clinton is telling others that they need to speak out and not go along with mistreating women, which is the opposite of what Clinton did in 2008.
