Hillary Clinton recently claimed that Donald Trump’s rhetoric on a temporary Muslim immigration ban was so infuriating, that ISIS was using his statements in recruitment videos.
Naturally, like most utterances from her lips, it was a lie.
Fact checkers and national security experts have been unable to verify the claim, and the Clinton campaign itself had to admit there was no “specific video.”
Our friend Jeff Dunetz over at Lid Blog helpfully points out that if ISIS wanted to use material in a recruitment video, they might consider this post-9/11 interview with Hillary in which she suggests the United States needs to start profiling Muslims.
Via Lid Blog:
Following Ms. Clinton’s logic that saying bad things about Muslims gives one a starting role in a terrorist recruitment video, then Hillary should have a video of her own, Back in 2001 when she was the Junior Senator from New York, Ms. Clinton was a strong supporter of singling out people who followed Islam.
In an interview with Sam Donaldson for ABC’s This Week on the Sunday after 9/11, Clinton said we needed to do everything possible to prevent a terrorist attack – even profiling. Since it was known that the 9/11 attack was conducted by radical Muslims, Clinton was talking about profiling people who practiced or looked like they practiced Islam.
“Let’s talk about American life now, though,” said ABC host Sam Donaldson. “What happens in the future from the standpoint of the question of security versus relaxation or giving up some of the freedoms that we’ve enjoyed in this country? How far do we go, for instance, on airline security?”
“Well, I think everyone recognizes we have to tighten security. We have to do whatever it takes to keep our people safe,” Hillary Clinton replied.
Donaldson said, “Including profiling, senator?”
“I think we have to do whatever it takes, Sam. And I believe that, you know, Tuesday changed everything. Tuesday was a day that America has never, ever had to experience. And I hope to heaven that we never have to again. But we are in a war situation, and we’re going to have to do things people do in times of war. I just heard your interview with the mayor, and I think he’s right to look at examples in history like the Battle of Britain. Many of us have been studying what others did to carry on. And we know that we have to make tradeoffs in convenience, in our freedom of movement, without undercutting or losing our way of life and our values, which I really want to make America special and great. And we can’t ever let anyone undermine that.”
Here is the interview segment …
As Dunetz suggests, while Trump hasn’t shown up in any actual recruitment videos, Hillary’s comments are certainly something they might well use in the future. Because, as the media has told us regarding Trump, profiling is pretty much the most evil thing you could possibly suggest after a terrorist attack.
Side note, while The Donald hasn’t shown up in ISIS videos, guess who has?
Barack Hussein Obama, and one William Jefferson Clinton who is referred to as the “fornicator.”
As it turns out, there is a prominent American featured in an ISIS recruiting video and that person is Bill Clinton.
A new ISIS recruiting video, titled “No Respite” has been released.The video is interesting because it lays out in very plain terms how ISIS views itself. Anyone who views this and can still say that ISIS is not truly Islamic is either a liar or a blithering idiot. This is the video in full. It is a little over 4 minutes and worth watching.
In it, some prominent Americans do appear.
And here they are …
As Gateway Pundit points out, Clinton is referred to as a “fornicator” in the video which can be seen below.
This time it seems, Clinton’s lies have truly backfired on her in spectacular fashion.
