Is Time magazine fighting for all women… Or only liberal women?
Bill Clinton rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick posed that question Wednesday in a tweet critical of Time’s Person of the Year pick.
The 2017 choice for the major recognition was all the collective women and men who have come forward to unmask widespread sexual abuse.

Time included the experiences of a wide array of women in their piece, including celebrities like Ashley Judd and Selma Blair.
Missing from Time’s article was Broaddrick’s story — even the though Broaddrick claimed she was interviewed by the liberal-leaning rag.

“Time magazine asked to interview me re:
#metoo movement,” she Broaddrick wrote. “The comments I gave were deemed of no value. I’d like to know why. Could it be I didn’t fit in their liberal victim mold.”
The much-talked about Time piece omitted Broaddrick’s testimony despite making reference to the rape and sexual assault allegations surrounding former President Clinton:
“In the 1990s, feminists stood up for accused abuser Bill Clinton instead of his accusers—a move many are belatedly regretting as the national conversation prompts a re-evaluation of the claims against the former President.”
Broaddrick has long claimed Clinton raped her in 1978 when she was 35 years old and he served as Arkansas Attorney General.
Last year, she joined other Bill Clinton accusers in a press conference with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump before the second debate.
Many observers were dumbfounded that Broaddrick was kept out of the article.
That the comments were deemed by whoever to be of no value does not make it so .. I am sorry Bill Clinton sexually harmed you . I am sorry that Hillary Clinton excused it . You mattered and you matter still..

The thing I’m most proud of is now the Clinton’s have tire tracks down their backs and now you stand tall to the People in America who are good and decent. We are so proud of you. In the History books of America in 50 years YOU will be the hero. Good for you Juanita!!!

Your comments are of great value. I won’t bother with TIME anymore bc they’re totally partisan. You inspire those of us who care, Juanita.

Juanita, you shatter their narrative by reminding us liberal media were complicit in these crimes for decades by marginalizing the victims or making their stories disappear entirely — which, ironically, @TIME magazine has done to you once again in its 2017 #MeToo edition. #Trump

They didn’t print it because folks would have lambasted them for not covering your story twenty years ago, JB. You were “too credible.”

Time is fake news, so what did you expect? Since they won’t publish your comments, you should. I’ll retweet them as will so many others. Label it: What Time Magazine Won’t Publish

It could be that you had the courage 2 speak up. These Hollywood actresses (not all) didn’t & they enabled that monster to do it 2 many others 4 years. They need to just admit they did it for their career. Would they have ever spoken up without the first few? #BoycottHollywood
