Only hours after ISIS committed an act of war against our oldest and most supportive European ally France, the three Democrats vying for their party’s nomination had a golden opportunity to reassure Americans they would protect us from the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism.
It didn’t happen. Instead, they carefully minced their words as not to offend Muslims.
Martin O’Malley said we should call them “radical jihadis” so as not to imply that all Muslims are our enemies. What in the hell is the difference between a jihadi and a terrorist? Nothing. It’s like the difference between a Democrat and a racist, or a Liberal and a Progressive. Just more of the same rotten thing.
The nutty professor Bernie Sanders even said the real issue is ISIS and Al-Qaeda’s mistreatment of women and children. Nice euphemistic way of explaining beheading, crucifixion, burning people alive in cages, rape and torture. Mistreatment? Making people listen to Obama speeches is mistreatment. Having to watch Hillary Clinton try on lingerie is…well that could be considered torture, but I think you get my meaning.
Nevertheless, as ridiculous as O’Malley and Sanders sounded, Hillary Clinton won the prize of debate idiot. She wants Americans to be compassionate to our sworn enemies.
“During the debate, Clinton also was asked about a December 2014 speech in which she said it’s important to show ‘respect even for one’s enemy’ and to try to ‘empathize with their perspective and point of view.’
Clinton responded: ‘It is important to try to understand your adversary in order to figure out how they are thinking, what they will be doing, how they will react.’”
Ok Hillary “Sun Tzu” ClintonAmericans. Nice try at waxing philosophical; however, we know how the enemy thinks, what they are doing, and how they will act. We don’t need any more empathy.
Radical Islamic terrorists want to kill us. The majority of Americans are not saying all Muslims are bad. The problem with moderates is they are easily led. Hitler converted a nation of moderates. And they will get help from the radicals that Hillary wants to bring in.
On CBS’ Face the Nation, as reported by the Huffington Post, Hillary stated:
“We’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II,” she told host John Dickerson. “I would like to see us move from what is a good start, with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”
What did Hillary Clinton learn as Secretary of State? Apparently not much, given what she should know about terrorism. The blood of the Benghazi victims is barely dry, and here is Clinton sharpening the knives of the terrorists.
