Hillary Clinton Ingratiating herself with Muslims

Posted by FactReal on September 14, 2012

Shoshana Bryen from the American Thinker writes:

In an effort to protect the delicate sensibilities of Egyptian rioters who invaded the American Embassy and tore down the American flag, Secretary of State Clinton accepted at face value the claim that the rioters were just so outraged and horrified by an anti-Muslim movie that they couldn’t control themselves.  While rejecting violence in a pro forma way (“There is never any justification…”), she went on to apologize for her nasty countrymen and to deplore them. “We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” Later, on the State Department Twitter feed, “The U.S. deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.” And, “Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”

As does our Constitutional commitment to free speech, including and especially speech that offends someone…In 1987, American Andres Serranno produced a photograph of a plastic crucifix in a glass of his own urine.  His work was funded in part by the U.S. Government’s National Endowment for the Arts.  […]

As a practical matter, Secretary Clinton’s acceptance of the movie as instigator of the riots reeks of naiveté.  Did it not occur to her that a purported offense against Islam might be a smoke screen for well-planned violence?  Later press reports suggest that to be the case…Did it not occur to her that the anniversary of 9-11 would be a great time for Islamic enemies of the United States to launch another attack on a symbolic American target?…

Of the killing of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans, she said, “This is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths around the world.” Muslims included, no doubt, but why only “people of faith?”  Can’t an ethical atheist be horrified?…[I]n 2009, she told an audience in Indonesia, “I am a Christian… Through the centuries we have had many people who have done terrible things in the name of Christianity. They have perverted the religion.”

…Just as her religion is officially irrelevant, so is the religion of those with whom she interacts on behalf of the government.  When mobs invade the sovereign territory of the U.S. abroad, when they tear down our flag and replace it with the slogan of the Muslim Brotherhood, when they murder an American Ambassador and members of the Embassy staff, they are our enemies.

If they are Muslim, so be it Mrs. Clinton.
