Leave the Supposed Son Alone

I don’t know if I’ve written about this matter in this space, but in case I didn’t, you’re reading it for the first time.

Leave the whole issue of Bill Clinton’s supposed mulatto son alone.

First off, I don’t think they look that much alike, so I doubt it.

Second, he’s trying to cash in on fifteen from the matter, which is only hot now because of the season.  This is actually old news; it broke back in 1998.  I remember at the time, a site that lampooned the Drudge Report splashed this headline:  CLINTON HO-DOWN LEADS TO FUN BABY SHOWDOWN.  Anyway, this is in all practicality his last chance to cash in on the matter.

Third, and most importantly, this could actually help Hillary.  If people get it in their heads that he is Bill’s son, then the obvious inference is that Bill Clinton, at the time, Governor of Arkansas, had sex with a black woman.  And guess who would love that and eat it up most of all.  That’s right, it just happens to be the Democrat Party’s most loyal voting demographic:  Black women.  It’s also the same demographic which drives the ratings for Scandal, which is about an executive level elected politician, a white man, stepping out on his white wife with a black woman.  This will only drive the black woman turnout for Bill’s wife sky high.  They’d want to get him back into the White House, even if it’s in the “First Gentleman” role, because then they would fantasize about Bill coming for them.

Remember, the black woman turnout in 2013 for Bill de Blasio was both near monolithic on both primary and general day and in record numbers in terms of percent of the possible.  He, married to a black woman.

That’s what Samuel Francis would say if he was still here. This was the point of his May 1999 Chronicles essay. Francis wrote of how the American right became obsessed with driving Bill Clinton from office by exposing his personal behavior:

“I personally am convinced that this was the intended result of that obsession, that some of those politicians and publicists who pushed the scandal-mongering the most did not really want to mobilize conservative sentiment against Clinton on the basis of serious issues at all. They did not wish to do so because they knew and feared that the issues around which conservative sentiment could be mobilized would be the ones they did not want to invoke–issues like immigration, trade policy, a national-interest foreign policy, affirmative action and hate crimes, and questions concerning moral and cultural restoration. Is it really an accident that the publications mentioned above as the most zealous in the Clinton hunt are also those most incline to neoconservative influence? By encouraging rank-and-file conservatives to be preoccupied with Bill Clinton’s alleged crimes and misdemeanors, those of his wife and associates, and every tawdry detail of hos extramarital affairs even down to the anatomical peculiarities of his masculine equipment, those who pushed and hawked the scandal-mongering made certain that the American right would never concern itself with more important–indeed, nationally and civilizationally crucial–matters.”

Even more than that, it distracted from Clinton scandals that were more serious than that. The Riady-Escalante scandal was way better impeachment fodder.
