This could almost be the Joke of the Day – but it’s not. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party’s chosen one for the White House, has a plan to fight terrorism in America and it’s basically this: Dismantle the Second Amendment.
As Robert Spencer in Jihad Watch noted, Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins picked up on Clinton’s interesting – to say the least – take on what should be done to keep at bay terrorists like the radical Islamists who attacked recently in New York and New Jersey.
She made these remarks to AARP Bulletin:
“In response to questions from AARP Bulletin, Hillary Clinton made clear her position that to be successful, policies for ending terrorism must include gun control for all Americans.
“AARP Bulletin asked, ‘What would you do to address terrorism?'”
And her reply? Wait for it …
That sound you hear is the campaign camp of Donald Trump laughing. But here it is, again – as posted on Jihad Watch:
“Well, these are legitimate fears. I believe that people are rightly concerned about violence. Terrorism is part of that violence, and we have to do the best job we can to keep America safe. So I’ve laid out a very comprehensive plan about taking on the terrorists, going after them where they operate, doing everything we can to take away their territories so they can’t mastermind attacks from afar. But we also have to go after them online because that is where they recruit, radicalize and direct attacks. And we need to do a better job of getting there early, rooting out people who are vulnerable and preventing that from happening.”
That’s the lead-up. Now for the punch line.
Jihad Watch goes on:
“But I’m looking at violence broadly. … It’s also why I’ve advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole—because, you know, it’s not only terrorists we need to be worried about. Terrorism is part of it, but gun violence kills 33,000 Americans a year. … We’ve got to get serious about stemming violence and terrorism in every way we can….”
And so on and so forth. You get the picture.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why Trump is gaining steadily in the polls, and will win the White House come November.
