Hillary Clinton: Nazi-Ukraine mention was about tactics By: Katie Glueck March 5, 2014 05:15 PM EST
Hillary Clinton on Wednesday stood by her recent likening of Russias actions in Ukraine to steps taken by Germany in the 1930s, though she avoided mentioning Adolf Hitler by name.
The former secretary of state spoke at UCLA a day after reportedly referencing the Nazi leader at a private event in California during a discussion about Ukraine, where Moscow recently sent troops.
What I said yesterday is that the claims by [Russian] President [Vladimir] Putin and other Russians that they had to go into Crimea, maybe further into eastern Ukraine because they had to protect Russian minorities, that is reminiscent of claims made back in the 1930s, said Clinton, a possible 2016 Democratic presidential contender, in a question-and-answer session after her speech. When Germany was under the Nazis, they kept talking about how to protect the German minority in Poland, in Czechoslovakia.
Before launching into a history of Ukraine following the breakup of the Soviet Union, Clinton continued: I just want everybody to have a little historical perspective. Im not making comparisons, but I am recommending that we can perhaps learn from this tactic that has been used before.
In her speech, Clinton praised the Obama administrations handling of the situation, expressed hope for a de-escalation of the crisis, and dismissed Putin as a tough guy with a thin skin.
Ive had a lot of experience, well, not only with him, but people like that, she said, to laughs. I know that his political vision is of a Greater Russia.
He is squandering the potential of such a great nation, the nation of Russia and threatening instability and even the peace of Europe.

We’ll know she’s really serious when she calls Putin a Republican.
As compared to her, a hopelessly weak poseur with a thin skin.
This coming from a former presidents wife and thats all she is. Can we expect the wookie running for president in the future? Had enough ? I have
I can see the Wookie pulling a Hillary and sliding into a Senate seat somewhere. Illinois, NY, or Hawaii perhaps. Any hard blue state would welcome her with open arms.
She just turned 50, so she has decades to make mischief in govt.
Historically, she is exactly right. Putin is using the same old 'ethnic protection' lies that Hitler used 75 years ago.
I am just curious why Hillary saw a reason to revert to an accurate description as opposed to the usual Clinton BS.
Svoboda is running the show. They were founded at in 1991 as the Social-National Party of Ukraine. They have torchlight parades and give Nazi salutes. They dislike Jews.
And Hillary can’t see THAT Nazi part of the equation.
Will she lef Dennis Rodman talk to Putin?
We could just read your college thesis on Saul Alinsky for example.
Oh, I know the answer.
Your bombs actually exploded.
When you look at Hillary objectively she is very stupid and ill-educated about foreign policy, geo-strategy and world affairs. Dittos for 0zero. Democrats love domestic policy because this where they get to buy votes and wage war on the real enemies of America. Republicans-conservatives.
Obama/Dems don’t negotiate with Republicans but in contrast look how John Effin is obsequiously running around trying to talk with the Russian foreign minister
Talking farm animal. Another piece of crap running her mouth.
After a decade + of being told Hillry is the smartest woman on the planet, how dare you call her stupid. (Kidding) See I think Hillry is playing a bit of mind games with Putin so as to give US the appearance that she is above reproach and demonstrates 'strong' leadership skills. This is Hillry making campaign ads for later.
That German socialist calling GWBush 'Hitler like - Nazi', over Iraq pretty much dissolved the bite there once was in being compared to Hitler.
For all we know this whole jig in the Russian backyard was finely tuned and orchestrated. I would rather think that Putin has the goods on our dear leader.... It really does seems strange that Putin has made himself front and center of prohibition of gaydom... Personally, I do not think Putin gives a hoot about it, because he came to this drama queen showdown well late in his political career.
I mean really now after all the history, it comes down to the US and Russia fussing over sodomy?
Speaking of grotesque gay garbage look what Sweden is doing>>>>
Sweden suspends Uganda aid over anti-gay law
Aljazeera- 1 hour ago
Sweden has suspended some of its financial aid to Uganda over a law that toughened punishment for gay people, becoming the fourth donor ...
Surely Putin will fill the void caused by the Sweds. It would be rather hypocritical of him to ignore the plight of a nation being right.
Yes, the world has gone insane.
She is still married but she will always be America’s Ex-Wife of the worst kind.
