Clinton held an impromptu news conference in the morning in which she presented herself as a steady hand in the face of terror threats and Trump as a reckless leader who is already making the United States less safe.
“We’ve heard that from former CIA Director Michael Hayden, who made it a very clear point when he said Donald Trump is being used as a recruiting sergeant in and for the terrorists,” Clinton said.
“We know from the former head of the Counterterrorism Center, Mike Olsen, that the language that Mr. Trump has used is giving aid and comfort to our adversaries,” she added, using the constitutional definition of treason.
I'm so old that I remember when dissent against fighting the Iraq War (that's the Iraq War under Bush 43 and not the Iraq War 2.0 now being waged by Obama 44, of course) was considered the highest form of patriotism. But no matter. That was then, this is now, and the Democratic memory hole is located between.
But what I really want to know is why Hillary believes Moslems are uniquely prone to signing up for the suicide vests and stabbing and shooting sprees?
After all, critics of Trump say that Trump is literally if not figuratively a Nazi and so pretty much hates everyone.
Should we expect Mexicans to charge a southern wall with explosive belts? Are gay people going to shoot up NASCAR events? Are African Americans going to go on stabbing sprees in malls? Are women going to drive cars up and down sidewalks mowing people down? Are establishment Republicans going to pay people to do any of those things?
I mean, that's the natural result of hearing Trump's words isn't it? That kind of speech is the recruiting sergeant of violence, right?
Or is Hillary Clinton suggesting that Moslems are uniquely capable of hearing words they don't like and then deciding that slaughtering Infidels is the only possible retort?
Heck, are the "deplorables" among Trump's white supporters (as Hillary called them) likely to respond to her words and start killing sprees in response?
Good grief, people, what doesn't set off jihadis and their supporters? Stop asking "why do they hate us?" while looking for those among us as the answer.
