Clinton: Video is 'disgusting and reprehensible'
politico ^ | 9/13/12 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 09/13/2012 8:09:40 AM PDT by ColdOne

The anti-Islam video that sparked protests in Libya and Egypt is "disgusting and reprehensible," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday, but it's no reason for violence -- especially against diplomats.

"Let me state very clearly -- and I hope it is obvious -- that the United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message. America's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation," Clinton said at the State Department, as she held a pre-scheduled meeting with Moroccan leaders.

She forgets that in the Islamic mindset, the religion is the government, so to them there is no difference.............

Self-censorship is the worst censorship of all. Muslims have intimidated the political and media elites. Islam is raised to a higher level beyond all other religions. It is politically incorrect (read blasphemy) to say anything critical of Islam. And those that do deserve our scorn and condemnation. Hillary speaks like a hostage.

I think the same whenever I see videos of her or her bl*wjob philandering hubby.

Folks, when losers such as this are the top of the dim-bulb-crat party, we should be in big trouble.

The problem is, look at the losers we have at the top of ours.

So is she going to apologize to Mormons for “The Book of Mormon”?

Or to Christians for “The Last Temptation of Christ”?

So what message does that send? Hey, if you want something, riot for it.

The liberals in this country constantly put out disgusting and reprehensible demonizations and mockery of Christians and Christianity. I am incensed by the double standard here. Why is criticism of Islam an “abuse” of freedom of speech, while criticism of any other religion is hunky dory to this administration?

The news media has been among the most awful liars about the entire war on terrorism, especially when it comes to leaving out the fact that we didn’t just have an offensive video, we allowed plenty of people in the Middle East to be killed. I am far from being a Ron Paul supporter, but at the same time, think about it, if some other country was ever allowed targeted killings of Americans suspected of being terrorists, regardless of whether or not we felt that way, how would you, as an American, feel? Then, in addition to seeing members of your family killed for suspicion of guilt, you get to see a movie that has a few things that you disagree with? That being said, the attacks on the embassy are abhorrent, especially considering that the ambassadors do a lot to try and raise awareness of the countries where they serve and try to do some helpful things for the people there. But at the same time, the media leaves out plenty of the things our government authorizes, well, I guess that there’s plenty of crooks and thugs to go around on both sides...

By saying how disgusting it is, she's turning up the heat and stirring the pot.

Now one news organization after the other will come up with different description to describe how disgusting it is, each will attempt to outdo the other, muslims are justified in their outrage, and it's all the fault of the “Right Wing Extremist” that are filled with hate.

First your husband declines to take care of Osama, and now you want a clean record, and no responsibilty for your touchy feely policies.

Easier to blame a video, than realize this is payback, in a coordinated manner.

How about this for an idea.

Libya/Egypt. Clean up this mess, and don’t count on any $$ from us until you do. You are on your own...

America's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation."

"Tolerance" does NOT mean that you APPROVE of whatever it is that you are tolerating (e.g., Islam, homosexuality) and that you dare not criticize it, even harshly. No. Indeed, "tolerance" implies that you DISAPPROVE of the thing tolerated; it's just that you do not imprison, kill, etc., the people engaged in the tolerated behavior.

Also, Hillary, we believe in free speech in this country.

What is really "disgusting and reprehenible" is the murder of our Ambassador and three of his staff. The reports he was sodomized by these subhumans makes it even more so, if that is possible.

Naturally, this evil Administration is pretty much ignoring that and instead trying to lay the blame someplace else like that nothingburger of a movie.

There must be a special place in hell for these wicked politicians and their media enablers.

Why do we only care about Muzzie sensibilities? Because they riot.

So what message does that send? Hey, if you want something, riot for it.

More than that, it’s called our president is trying to fight a war with minimal casualties against terrorists. Well, apparently, the old saying goes “no such thing as a free lunch” well, when you want to fight terrorism, it’s not going to be casualty-free.

As far as offensive material goes, the news media is leaving out the fact that there has been a targeted killing program running in the Middle East. Think about it: how would you feel if some foreign country claimed the right to blow up whole families, funeral processions, or buildings full of people just because one person in the crowd or building was a criminal suspect. Then, after seeing people in your family killed off, you get to see a film that ridicules your belief system. It sure would irritate me. However, the real criminals are the president and his propaganda wing in the media for leaving out all the blood that President Barack Hussein Obama likes to spill, to make him look like a good president, and when you leave out the part about all the people we physically killed and say that it was just the video, well, it makes taking away American freedom of expression more appealing.

Hillary is a total ass and now the whole world can see it.

She has made a career of pandering to Muslims from the time she was an attorney defending Palestinian Muslims through her efforts to assist them as the First “Lady” in the Balkan catastrophe, and right through her term as Secretary of State.

The GOP should GET SMART and link this evil *itch as much as possible to the catastrophe she helped create in the Middle East which is now unfolding before our eyes.

Its a God-given opportunity to thoroughly discredit her and destroy her chances for election later or appointment ot the SCOTUS.

Let me know when she comments about Christians being crucified in Cairo? Let me know when she comes out against Sharia ‘customs’ such as genital mutilation. Let me know ehn she proclaims anything with regards to who REALLY is conducting a War on Women.

I don’t care if there are a thousand poor quality films like this. Same fo cartoons, editorials, whatever.

PissChrist and burning flags or GWB effigies is free speech or artistic expression. But somehow this isn’t. More chickens coming home to roost.

Let's say it all together:

This video had NOTHING to do with the September 11, 2012 riots and attacks in Libya and Egypt!!!!

Again: This video had NOTHING to do with the September 11, 2012 riots and attacks in Libya and Egypt!!!!

It was used as a ploy to attack us on the anniversary of the worst day in Islamic Terrorism, September 11th, 2001. This is SPIT IN OUR EYE, America!

They leave out the fact that there isn’t simply insult in the Middle East, but there is also people killed as collateral damage, combined with the fact that we upheld less than decent people to try and oust regimes where I am still grasping for why we took sides in another nation’s Civil War. However, when you leave out the killing of people in the Middle East, it makes the idea that the video alone is the problem and restricting First Amendment Rights looks more appealing. It’s about time that Obama and Clinton admit the truth: they authorize killing people and that there simply are casualties in this so-called “war on terror” and they lie to justify taking away our personal, constitutional freedoms.
