As the Washington Times noted last week, “a joint statement from spokesmen for Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton reportedly blasts authors Ed Klein, Daniel Halper and Ronald Kessler as ‘a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense for a quick buck:’”

The statement singles out Mr. Klein’s “Blood Feud,” Mr. Halper’s “Clinton, Inc.” and Mr. Kessler’s soon-to-be-released “The First Family Detail,” Politico reported.

The books, which paint the Clintons in a less-than-desirable light, are “an insult to readers [and] authors, and should be reserved for the fiction bin, if not the trash,” a joint statement from spokesmen for the Clintons read, Politico reported.

“With Klein, Halper and [author Ronald] Kessler, we now have a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense for a quick buck, at the expense of anything even remotely resembling the truth,” the statement reportedly said.

“Their behavior should neither be allowed nor enabled, and legitimate media outlets who know with every fiber of their being that this is complete crap should know not to get down in the gutter with them and spread their lies.”

Huh. The “allowed” is the tell here. In the past, liberal fascists such as Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Richard Nixon, and Barack Obama waited until they were in office before they began to trample on the First Amendment. It’s a rare, refreshingly honest moment from Hillary Clinton to admit her presidential intentions upfront.

There are two other "tells"...the appearance of David Brock in the story, and the lack of any reference to imminent libel suits.

No, "a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense for a quick buck" would be Air America, MSNBC, and Al Jazeera...although, come to think of it, I don't know if any of those three have actually turned a buck, quick or otherwise.

The Left was for the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech only as long and insofar as they were the only ones with any media megaphones. As soon as the Right had their own megaphones, the Left reverted to type (IngSoc, Politburo, etc.) and started waging First Amendmenticide.
