Hillary Crazy about Crazies

We Must Empathize With America’s Enemies

Say what?

Hillary Clinton, the as-yet-unannounced Democratic front-runner for president spoke at Georgetown this week to express her vision “to advance peace and security.”[1]

Attempting to seize the moral high ground, Hillary’s strategy for world peace is hilarious: empathy. (This is reminiscent of that quintessential quality Obama seeks in Supreme Court justices – empathy, not legality.)

HillaryCrazies

In Hillary’s world, Clinton calls this “smart power” which leaves “no one on the side lines.”

(I would think we would want terrorists and other evildoers to be “on the side lines,” but the Obama administration has been known for negotiating with the worst of the worst.)

Eschewing military action, Hillary seemingly contends that diplomacy will solve all of our problems and lead to global peace. “That is what we believe in the 21st century will change – change the prospects for peace.”

Clinton’s approach to resolving tensions with our enemies is simplistic, naïve, and dangerous: “Showing respect even for one’s enemies.”

And what does that entail? “Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view.”

Empathize? With terrorists and tyrants?

Having run the State Department for so many years, one would think that the smartest woman in the world – who oversaw the dismantling of peace around the world – would know what the perspectives and points of view our enemies possess.

ISIS and other Islamic terrorists want to create a worldwide caliphate and, to do so, they must convert or kill every other person on the planet, especially us. That is their perspective and point of view.

Does Clinton, like Kerry, think we can talk ISIS into peace?

How do we show these butchers, beheaders, and barbarians “respect?” Through negotiation? With appeasement?

How are we to empathize with butchers and barbarians? Will that empathy dissuade them from further butchery? Genghis Khan was undeterred by pleas for mercy.

Vladimir Putin wants to restore the old Russian Empire. He seized the Crimea despite world protests and he is hell bent on absorbing the whole of the Ukraine. Virtually unopposed by Obama and his diplomacy. How did that reset button work out for you, Hillary?

Iran is unalterably resolute in its desire to develop nuclear weapons and the Obama administration’s policy of appeasement will never contain that threat. Indeed, for all these years, negotiation has always worked to Iran’s advantage.

Instead of acknowledging evil where it exists and taking action to protect Americans, Obama talks, talks, talks. And Hillary Rodham Clinton – the presumptive POTUS in 2016 – apparently supports that policy.

Let’s Talk ISIS Into Peace

Islamic jihadists have reshaped Mideast geography by force, created their own Islamic Nation, beheaded foreigners and fellow Muslims, and vow to create a worldwide caliphate prescribing sharia law to serve their god: Allah.

Still, some people deny they are Islamic. Others deny they even pose a threat. Some think we can negotiate with them.

(Those three groups intersect in the White House.)

It can never be said that the Obama administration has a firm grasp on reality with regards to foreign policy. Jimmy Carter may have given us the Iranian Hostage Crisis, but under Obama, as Kissinger observes, “The World is in Flames.”

ISIS is NOT a Civil Rights Group

One otherwise intelligent person wrote:

“The only way to justify using U.S. military force to suppress fundamentalists is for the U.S. to lead a global coalition to substantially alleviate the oppressive conditions of daily life in the regions in which fundamentalists find a measure of popular respect (for standing up to local regimes that collaborate with oil conglomerates and financial corporations). But that would require the U.S. government to renounce its own alliance with big oil and the big banks. Don’t see that coming. Therefore, U.S. applications of force will be unsuccessful and will only give rise to another cycle of violence.”

The “cycle of violence” this writer refers to is not perpetuated by big oil or big banks. Indeed, it precedes big oil and big banks. It’s historical roots extend back to the founder of Islam.

(Let’s blame America anyway!)

ISIS is not a civil rights group.

ISIS has become such a feared monster because of a power vacuum created by President Obama. Its stated raison d’être is to create a worldwide caliphate. ISIS is not interested in waging peace, creating income equality, alleviating poverty, and the like. ISIS’s only concern is to achieve global domination, kill infidels, and enforce sharia upon the entire world.

Blame the terrorists, not us!

They attack us not because of anything we’ve done but because of who they are!

Weapons, Not Words

Weapons, not words, are the only way to stop them!

Diplomacy with terrorists is literally an oxymoron. People who cavalierly behead other people are not rational and cannot be reasoned with.

Words cannot dissuade them.

Appeasement only emboldens them.

They are an implacable foe undeterred by appeals for peace, human rights, equality, or any of U.N. buzzwords employed by the Left.

ISIS is evil, with evil brutes committing evil atrocities and rejoicing in their evil.

Contrary to the pacifist Left, war is sometimes the answer, and, with ISIS, it is the only answer.

Jimmy Carter’s “Principles of Allah”

Jimmy Carter, a third-generation Southern Baptist who has renounced his membership in that denomination, recently spoke at the annual convention for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) calling upon all Americans to “use the principles of Allah to bring peace and justice to all.”

Allah

I guess I missed that part in the Bible where Jesus said we are to look to other gods for counsel. (Judeo-Christian principles and culture have served America well for over two centuries, thank you.)

Numerous blogs have provided examples of “principles of Allah” which are decidedly non-Christian, anti-American, and anti-civilization.

Carter has denounced Israel for a decade and he seeks acceptance of HAMAS as a legitimate organization. Carter condemns Christianity for waging a war on women, yet has little criticism of Islam.

Perhaps Jimmy should put on a sweater and watch the news.

HAMAS is a terrorist organization in league with ISIS, which is a terrorist nation seeking to rule the world by force and annihilate all opposition. They worship Allah and look to the Koran for guidance.

Peace and justice will forever elude the world as long as Western leaders remain spellbound by their own faulty visions of the world.

Perhaps Jimmy also forgot those Sunday school lessons he gave as a Southern Baptist having to do with Jesus – not Allah – being the Prince of Peace.
