While speaking at a fundraiser for a youth program that sends students to Israel, two-time Democratic loser Hillary Clinton spoke out about last week’s deadly terror attacks in London in which the perpetrators shouted “This is for Allah” as they committed murder and general mayhem. But far from demanding tighter security or a firmer worldwide resolve to stamp out the scourge of radical Islam (this was after all Hillary Clinton), the former secretary of state lashed out at President Trump, who was critical of statements made by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
“This is a time for us to reach out to the world,” said Clinton, “to understand more about what is happening. Not just in our own country but indeed across the globe.” Kumbaya, yo!
It’s a time for steady, determined leadership, like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the mayor of London.
And it is a time to remember how important our alliances are.… Getting to know one another. Learning about the experiences, the lives, the cultures, the religions, the food. Putting yourself in another’s shoes, walking in them. It’s even more important that we work together with our allies and our friends and our partners.
Yes, to keep us safe, but also to expand our understanding of what we can achieve together.
This is not a time to lash out, to incite fear or to use tragedy and terror for political gain.
Clinton has a point. She’s something of an expert on exploiting words and deeds for political gain so she knows whereof she speaks.
Here’s video of her comments, courtesy of the American Mirror:
This isn’t the first time Clinton has taken a soft stand on Islamic terrorism. As we reported during the general election campaign, she was referred to as “Islam’s whore” partly due to her refusal to acknowledge the threat posed by jihadists.
National security expert Stephen Coughlin said in a 2015 book that while serving as secretary of state, Clinton assured Islamic countries that the U.S. government would intimidate Americans who speak out or criticize Islam.
In 2015, she also claimed that Muslims have “nothing whatsoever” to do with terrorism.
It seems as though America dodged a bullet last November — possibly literally as well as figuratively — when the handed victory to Clinton’s opponent in the general election.
