There have been a few posts here about the new book penned by Mimi Alford who served as a very young intern for JFK. Ms. Alford recounts the lurid details of how she was sexually used by the late president.
As you can imagine, the MSM (oddly enough, female MSMers) is not taking kindly to this woman's audacity to write a book, burdening society with her side of the story. She appeared on ABC's
"The View" Hen House on Friday, and Barbara Walters was just as indignant as you could ever imagine a JFK sycophant to be. She harped on the idea that Alford would undoubtedly make money on the book, scolded her for not being concerned with how Caroline Kennedy would feel, and pretty much lays Monica Lewinsky's plight in Alford's lap. Walters goes so far as to insist Mimi Alford didn't need to have written the book, citing, "You could have let it go!"
As if Ms. Alford had not been victimized enough by Kennedy, the self-appointed Kennedy toady, despicable socialist shrew, and old news hound victimized her again.
Not an ounce of compassion for Mimi Alford, who was no more than an innocent naïve girl during the early 1960s when women and girls were at the mercy of such men in power, and trapped within an era of society that didn't speak of such things. Excuse me, but I believe Walters was all-in for the struggle of the women's lib movement a few years after Alford's encounters inside the White House. She was among those righteous women claiming women were historically victimized by men in general, and powerful men to be sure, as nothing more than degraded sex objects ... treated like meat. All those leading feminists that led the way to the burning garbage barrels with their bras insisted on confessing to all the world the evils done to them by men in their lives ... to women in general since the dawn of humanity. But Mimi Alford is to be snorted at and scolded simply because she dares write about the sins committed against her by one of the liberal feminists' patron saints, JFK ... Walters herself mentions Kennedy's checkered past, yet, insists on protecting him still by trying to verbally bloody one of his victims. Hell, I expected to hear Walters break out into a Louisiana drawl and declare, "Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park..." James Carville-style. But then, I imagine in her high-toned sanctimonious Manhattan scoff she was doing just that by repeatedly mentioning, "You'll make a lot of money"... as if Mimi Alford was prostituting herself for writing her story in a book.
Makes you wonder how Walters and her ilk would treat a woman that wrote such a book about, say, Ronald Reagan.
Tim Graham of NewsBusters reminds:
Almost four years ago, ABC’s Barbara Walters came out with her memoir Audition, using as its selling point a tale of her tawdry 1970s affair with married black Sen. Edward Brooke (R-Mass.). Seldom has a TV personality been a more shameless public hypocrite than Walters was on Friday with former Kennedy mistress Mimi Alford during an interview on “The View.”
Indeed, and for what it's worth, let's not forget feminist Walters also never met a bloody totalitarian male dictator she didn't fawn over...
As Humberto would say "Unreal"!
