Hillary Clinton Says, We Must Show Respect and Empathize With America’s Enemies



Former Secretary of State, former US Senator of New York and former First Lady Hillary Clinton says that “Smart power” also includes “showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand … empathize with their perspective and point of view.”  What Hillary Clinton calls smart power, others who actually like America and its freedoms and liberties call ignorant, foolish and naive utopian liberal BS. It is no wonder that Hillary accomplished nothing as Secretary of State except get frequent flier miles.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday that women should play larger roles in conflict resolution and military efforts around the globe and that “smart power” includes empathizing and showing respect, even for one’s enemies, as the United States confronts a host of challenges on the world stage.

Lt. Col. Oliver North appeared ‘On the Record’ with Greta Van Susteran said oh Hillary’s comments, “those words coming out of some one who intends to be commander and chief are not just naive and utopian, it’s irrational.” As Col. North pointed out when Greta tried to make excuses for Hillary about being taken  out of context, Hillary was looking down at her notes and reading, not making an off the cuff comment. This is the underlying belief of progressives and liberals, we must understand why and empathize with our enemies because we must be to blame.  Case in point, Obama apology tour when he first became president.

Transcript from The Weekly Standard:

“This is what we call smart power,” Clinton said to a small audience at Georgetown. “Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.

So are we supposed to respect and empathize with ISIS, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Muslim Brotherhood and maybe Boko Haram? How about the terrorists who attacked the Libyan consulate in Benghazi and murdered Ambassador Stevens? How about those that would chop off the heads of innocents? Maybe Hillary would like to explain herself? But in the end, what difference would it make?

      Look who is pandering to the LEFT who think she is a hawk. Hey America, who wants to sing kumbaya around the camp fire with ISIS?

      Hillary is just another Progressive/Communist like Obama. We are in the process of witnessing the ugly behavior that communists use to destroy things.

      What has this woman ever done that was successful?

      Wait, I thought of two. She steals files from her work place and hides them. Can we remember the stolen files from Watergate and those of WH counsel Vince Foster. And another is riding around the world on the Tax Payers money pretending to be Secretary of State.

      Smart Power? That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard but would be great in a political commercial. Show Ms. Clinton saying this and then show Lee Rigby, the Brit beheaded on a London street. Show Ms. Clinton saying this and show the Americans begging for their lives before being beheaded. Show a group of women being sold as sex slaves and ditto, etc. etc. etc. Show a Muslima being stoned to death and then, well you get the idea. Could throw in at least a mention of sexual mutilation of little girls.

      Empathize? Hell, I hate those people and what they do to humanity. I hope Clinton dug her grave politically with this remark, but her nonsensical followers probably didn’t understand the words with more than two syllables.

      Do what? We must…NO, we must not!

      She just shot herself in the foot, again.

      That is sheer stupidity! Just like obama, let’s be friends. al qaeda made it quite clear that obama’s negotiating deal with the release of the terrorists did not signify a friendship.

      I hope her name is not on the ballot.
