Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Strongly Condemns Muhammed Video, Lightly Criticizes Islamist Murderers
While the lapdog media circles the wagons in order to defend their meek and wilting religious cult leader Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton is out letting Islamists know that when you murder one of our diplomats, we bow down to your anger.
In a speech to an international audience today, Clinton soundly condemned the video:
To us, to me, personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.
But her criticism of the murdering mob that killed and possibly sodomized her diplomat and three others was much less vehement:
There is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. Islam, she added, like many religions, respects the “fundamental dignity” of human beings, and violence goes against this principle.
Apparently murdering our citizens isn’t as “cynical” or provoking of “rage” as making a movie? Does that make you feel safe that our government values your security and defend it?
Notice in the second link from leftist site Mediaite, her condemnation of the movie isn’t even mentioned, possibly to protect her from the very criticism that the Obama administration takes very seriously any offense to our enemies, no matter how stupid, but absorbs and plays down when our citizens are murdered.
Another point to be made is how she values human life according to a statist and multi-culturalist point of view:
“It is especially wrong for violence to be directed against diplomatic missions. These are places whose very purpose is peaceful to promote better understanding across countries and cultures.”
So innocent normal people going about their day to day lives are worth less as human beings because they don’t necessarily “promote better understanding” among cultures?
Hillary says she has a personal deep disgust for the offense made against Islam – the death of US ambassador Chris Stevens is hurtful to her because he represents the state…
Good to know…
I notice also that this fits in with Obama’s odd and inappropriate comparison of the diplomats and troops with college students:
And obviously [our] hearts are broken for the families but I wanted to encourage those folks at the State Department that they were making a difference.
The sacrifices that our troops and our diplomats make are obviously very different from the challenges that we face here domestically but like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than we’re doing… I’m just really proud of you…
This mirrors an aim of the Obama administration he’s been harping about since before the 2008 election – the elevation of civil “service” to be honored at the level of military service, if not beyond.
