During the Democrats’ Saturday night debate, scheduled at a time to depress viewers, Hillary Clinton launched another of her baseless charges against Donald Trump:
“He is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter. They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists,” Clinton said during Saturday’s Democratic debate, hosted by ABC News.”https://wordpress.com/post/libertybellediaries.com/6675
Let’s once and for all expose this kowtowing to terrorists for what it is – cowardice! How this woman, who pushed for our disastrous war in Libya, which has spawned a jihadist nightmare in Libya and who blamed the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi on some obscure video and “spontaneous” riot, rather than an organized group of jihadists, can now stand there with a straight face and declare Donald Trump’s speech dangerous defies logic.
What she and the Left constantly do is try to silence those who speak freely and express views that counter their PC pieties. This particular fear-mongering tactic about “hate speech” toward Muslims fueling jihadism should be debunked once and for all. What fuels jihadism is an Islamist religious ideology, not free speech in America. Islamic radicals, Islamists, terrorists or whatever word you choose to describe these murderous barbarians act due to belief in a religious ideology, promoted by many Muslim religious leaders in mosques (religious meeting places). Certainly, Islamic scholars and political figures aid and abet this rabid religious ideology, dressing it up as a political ideology too, but let’s be clear, when we say things like “Islam is a political ideology masquerading as a religion”, I suspect we have the historical antecedents in the wrong order – it was a religious ideology, which fueled a political system based on strict observance of those religious tenets.
In the West we have secular political systems with some roots in Christian religious beliefs, but our political systems are secular and pluralistic. In America, we had a group of men sit down and study governments through history, debate the merits and pitfalls, write and rewrite a body of laws, representatives from the colonies met and debated our Constitution, and then compromised on contentious parts. And finally they voted to adopt The Constitution, which has provisions to amend it. Ours is a secular, man-made and constructed political system, designed by free men, which has legitimacy only by the consent of the governed – we the people have the last say in the matter, because we are FREE.
Donald Trump’s rhetoric isn’t an ISIS recruiting tool! Weak, bumbling American leadership, of which Hillary Clinton, played a starring role, has been the biggest ISIS recruiting tool!!! President Obama pulled out of Iraq, leaving a gaping power vacuum, which allowed for ISIS to seize territory and set-up shop. The glorious Arab Spring democracy project, full-throatedly supported by Madame Secretary, aided in the destabilization of the entire region and not content with fomenting chaos in Egypt and Libya, she went on to push for regime change in Syria too. In Libya the Obama administration armed so-called “freedom-fighters”, which my suspicion, based on copious reporting, is many were jihadists. In Syria, the disastrous policy continued with this debate over arming “moderate Syrians”, which let’s be clear the rebels who rose up against Assad are Sunni Islamists of varying degrees of radicalization, but make no mistake about it, they are Islamists and none of them is much interested in setting up a Jeffersonian democracy if Assad is ousted. There is no viable pro-democracy movement in Syria – the Islamists have the weapons (much of it provided courtesy of the USA) and control the rebel groups.
The reason ISIS is growing is because of weak, pathetic western indecisiveness, lethal political correctness and clueless, failed leadership, let me repeat, of which Madame Secretary played a starring role. And then there’s the endless aiding, abetting and funding of Islamist extremists by Sunni state enablers, which in the case of ISIS, Turkey can be relied on to undercut, not only our efforts to roll back ISIS, but also to bomb the hell out of the Kurds at every turn, you know, those Kurds, whom Hillary and every other politician wants to be our boots on the ground to fight ISIS. Yes, we’ve got Turkey, with Obama’s good friend, Erdogan, watching our back….
Trying to quell free speech out of fear of offending Muslims and setting them on the path to jihadism should be challenged as left-wing propaganda that aids Islamists. Bowing down, because if we stand up and speak out we might make some Muslims mad and incite them to run off to join ISIS is ludicrous. And beyond that it’s WEAKNESS and that is the biggest recruitment tool of all for thugs and terrorists. It disgusted me when General Petraeus got personally invested in trying to infringe upon the free speech of that loony pastor, who was going to burn the Koran, several years ago. He should have been using that opportunity to champion free speech and our separation of church and state, but nope, he raised the PC false flag and with his band of PC fear-mongers marched forward. Unless we can defend our values, we are doomed! We must not bow down to the tyranny of Islamic terror, but even more than that we must not bow down to PC dogma, imposed on us by lying, conniving politicians and “experts from academia”, where we’re fed endless fear-mongering that erodes our very freedom – to move freely, to think freely and most importantly to forge ahead and speak freely in the public square. Freedom is the strongest defense against tyranny of any kind!
Katerine Timpf at National Review wrote a piece on Hillary’s campaign trying to shut down a video produced by a comedy club last month. Timpf writes:
“Given that Hillary has had decades of political experience in this country, one would think that she’d know about the whole First Amendment thing by now. The freedom to make fun of and openly criticize our political leaders isn’t just a luxury, it’s an important part of our political system. It’s a crucial check on the power of our politicians that helps prevent them from getting to do whatever the hell they want.”
“The five short performances that Clinton wants eliminated include some profanity and portions could be considered crass, but some of the lines are funny and that’s what the Laugh Factory is all about. The video features the individual acts of five comedians, four men and a woman. The skits make fun of Clinton’s wardrobe, her age, sexual orientation, the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the former First Lady’s relationship with her famous husband. The Laugh Factory has appropriately titled it “Hillary vs. The First Amendment.”
Masada told Judicial Watch that, as soon as the video got posted on the Laugh Factory website, he received a phone call from a “prominent” person inside Clinton’s campaign. “He said the video was disgusting and asked who put me up to this,” Masada said. The Clinton staffer, who Masada did not want to identify, also demanded to know the names and phone numbers of the comedians that appear in the video. Masada refused and hung up. He insists that the comedy stage is a sanctuary for freedom of speech no matter who is offended. “Just last night we had (Emmy-award winner) Dana Carvey doing Donald Trump and it was hilarious,” Masada said.”
And if anyone should know what happens when you mock that woman, I sure do. My Messages of mhere story tabbed at the top of the page chronicles what happened to me, a nobody homemaker, who dared make fun of the smartest woman in the world and her husband BJ (ok, I mocked her and their spin mercilessly), during the Lewinsky scandal in 1998, writing on the Excite message boards. Don’t laugh at her or else! Although written in my usual snarky style, the names have been changed to protect the innocent – ME, but rest assured the events happened. Assuredly, I, an unarmed, cookie-baking homemaker, felt terrorized in my own home, but be that as it may, I’ll leave it to you to decide who is the deranged one in this saga and the meaning of “domestic terrorism”…
