Hillary Clinton Blames Republicans for ISIS Recruitment


On Sunday, Hillary Clinton sat down with her good buddy George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week to talk politics, terrorism and NOT her many crimes and failures.

On the subject of terrorism, Hillary went full crazy as she actually deigned to blame the GOP’s rhetoric as a contributing factor in ISIS’ ability to recruit terrorists to their cause.

Noticeably absent in her blame game was her acceptance of any blame for the collapse of the Muslim World during the Obama era (and predominantly under the guidance of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State). Watch as Hillary Clinton says some of the stupidest, most illogical and completely self-serving palaver that you’ll ever hear.

George Stephanopoulos: So what’s the problem with radical Islam?

Hillary Clinton: Well, the problem is that that sounds like we are declaring war against a religion. And that, to me, is, number one, wrong but…

George Stephanopoulos: Even though the qualifier radical is there?

Hillary Clinton: No, because, look, that — you know enough about religion, you’ve studied it. And there are radicals, people who believe all kinds of things in every religion in the world.

I don’t want to do that because, number one, it doesn’t do justice to the vast numbers of Muslims in our own country and around the world who are peaceful people.

Number two, it helps to create this clash of civilizations that is actually a recruiting tool for ISIS and other radical jihadists who use this as a way of saying we’re in a war against the West. You must join us. If you are a Muslim, you must join us.

No. If you’re a law-abiding, peace-loving Muslim, you need to be with us against those who are distorting Islam.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You put — you’ve also been reluctant to say we’re fighting radical Islam. And I wonder why not.

Isn’t it a mistake not to say it plain, that the violence is being pushed by radical elements in that faith?

CLINTON: Well, that’s a different thing. Radical elements who use a dangerous and distorted view of Islam to promote their jihadist ambitions, I’m fine with that. I say it all the time and I go after Islamic, too.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So what’s the problem with radical Islam?

CLINTON: Well, the problem is that that sounds like we are declaring war against a religion. And that, to me, is, number one, wrong but…

STEPHANOPOULOS: Even though the qualifier radical is there?

CLINTON: No, because, look, that — you know enough about religion, you’ve studied it. And there are radicals, people who believe all kinds of things in every religion in the world.

I don’t want to do that because, number one, it doesn’t do justice to the vast numbers of Muslims in our own country and around the world who are peaceful people.

Number two, it helps to create this clash of civilizations that is actually a recruiting tool for ISIS and other radical jihadists who use this as a way of saying we’re in a war against the West. You must join us. If you are a Muslim, you must join us.

No. If you’re a law-abiding, peace-loving Muslim, you need to be with us against those who are distorting Islam.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Can you say today that we’re winning the fight against ISIS?

CLINTON: I could say today that we have a new set of threats. You know, if — if you go back and look where we were with al Qaeda in 9/11, there’s no doubt bin Laden and his lieutenants were planning to carry out additional attacks, if they possibly could. And they did in places like Madrid and London, etc.

So we have dealt with that threat. It doesn’t go away. We haven’t eliminated it, but we’ve dealt with it.

Now, we have to turn our attention to the very sophisticated propagation of this new threat from ISIS.
