"These people are our enemies! They are trying to destroy us!"
These were the words spoken by Hillary Clinton in 1993, just months after Islamic terrorists tried to kill thousands of Americans by setting off a massive truck bomb underneath the World Trade Center.
However, First Lady Hillary was speaking of a different group of people she deemed highly offensive. She was talking about Republicans. She was very upset when she found out a group of Republicans had been invited to the White House.
During this same time period, Hillary said, "I believe in evil and I think that there are evil people in the world." Once again, she was NOT talking about terrorists. This time she was referring to Washington politicians, mostly Republicans, who were opposed to her plans to reform health care.
When it comes to Republicans no one has shown more disdain for them than Hillary. Time and again the former First Lady has expressed her contempt for members of the opposing party. And as stated above, she has even gone as far as putting them on the same level as terrorists.
In 1996 at the Clinton White House, the same year Osama Bin Laden declared war on America, various groups of people were invited to spend time with the Bill and Hillary Clinton. These groups, all Muslim, were warmly welcomed. Terrorism expert Steve Emmerson reported all of these Muslim groups were known to be militant Islamic, and had proclaimed their support for terrorism.
At this gathering, Mrs. Clinton actually acknowledged that what little she knew about Islam had come from her daughter Chelsea who was taking a class in school. "I have to admit that a good deal of what my husband and I have learned [about Islam] has come from our daughter." She also accepted two copies of the Qur’an. "I am honored to have these gifts…one for my husband and one for me." Mrs. Clinton also stated, "As the fastest growing religion in this country, Islam will only continue to enrich our people and our society. And a greater understanding of the tenets of Islam in our national consciousness will help us build strength and resilience as a nation." Emmerson pointed out that by Hillary meeting with these groups they were able to present themselves as "mainstream and moderate." Did she not realize that with this gesture she was legitimizing their position?
So, Hillary warmly welcomes Muslims with ties to terror, but gets extremely upset when Republicans get invited to her White House.
Just two years later Osama Bin Laden issued his famous fatwa, stating it was the duty of Muslims everywhere to kill Americans wherever they find them. Hillary’s great concern that year (1998) was that a "vast, right-wing conspiracy" was after her husband.
After September 11, 2001, when 3,000 Americans were murdered by followers of bin Laden, Hillary was asked the following question: "How will Americans react knowing we’re on the receiving end of this murderous anger by Muslim extremists?" She answered, "I’m well aware that it [this murderous anger] is out there. One of the most difficult experiences I personally had in the White House was during the health care debate, [when I was] the object of such extraordinary rage." For her that "extraordinary rage" came from grassroots Republicans opposed to her plans to reform America’s healthcare system. I guess in Hillary’s mind, the rage and hate of suicidal Islamic extremists is the same as the hatred Republicans have towards her every day.
But perhaps the greatest example of Hillary’s contempt for Republicans is displayed on her own website. In June of 2004, former President Ronald Reagan, a Republican, passed away. While most of America mourned his death, Hillary did not issue her own statement of tribute for Reagan. Instead, a statement written by Bill Clinton, issued in both their names, was posted on her website. A quick review of her site will reveal numerous statements by Hillary on the deaths of many other Americans, even a deputy mayor in upstate New York. But Hillary Clinton, a member of the United States Senate, could not bring herself to write even a few lines of praise for a president whom many consider to be one of our best.
Hillary Clinton wants to be president. To do so, she’ll have to convince a majority of voters that she can be a leader for all Americans. Unless she can get over her hatred of all things Republican, she’ll never sit in the Oval Office. One can ask her about the dangers of modern terrorism, but if you really want to hear her talk about who our greatest threat is, just ask her about Republicans.
