Hillary Clinton Hit on Trump Is Her Latest Attack on Freedom of Speech

She held a lengthy closed-door meeting with Ihsanoglu in December 2011 to facilitate the adoption of measures that would advance the OIC’s anti-free speech push. What agreements she and Ihsanoglu made, if any, have never been disclosed.

Right after the Benghazi massacre, the father of one of those slain recounted that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke to him at a memorial service about the Muhammad filmmaker, saying:

We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted.

And they did. The filmmaker went by several different names, had a record full of run-ins with the law, and at the time of the Benghazi attacks was out on parole. A condition of his parole, however, was that he not go on the Internet -- which he apparently did in order to upload the notorious video to YouTube.

For that, he was arrested and imprisoned for several months, thereby becoming the first political prisoner in the U.S. for Obama’s war on free speech and enforcement of Sharia blasphemy laws. There can be no doubt that he was imprisoned not for the technicality of the probation violation (thousands of more serious probation violators walk the streets), but for insulting Muhammad.

His arrest was a symbol of America’s capitulation to Sharia. He became the first offender against the new de facto federal crime of blasphemy against Islam.

Over three years later, nothing has changed for Hillary Clinton. She is still proffering restrictions on the freedom of speech as the remedy for jihad terror: if we just “stop insulting Islam and Muslims,” everything will be all right. Yet if she becomes president and goes farther than “old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” to silence criticism of Islam and Muslims, including the counter-terror analyses of jihadi motives and goals that so many Muslim leaders in the U.S. claim insult Islam and Muslims, she will find that the jihadis will keep advancing anyway. They are energized by motivations wholly different from rage over being insulted.

To understand that, however, Hillary would have to study the Islamic texts and teachings that she assumes to be benign and that she wants to shield from all critical analysis. By the time she gets around to doing that, it will be far too late.
