Hillary Clinton’s most repugnant lie


waving flagBy Post Editorial Board December 9, 2015

 

Liar, liar, pantsuit on fire: Hillary Clinton still insists she didn’t tell the grieving families of the Benghazi victims that an anti-Islam video was to blame. Yet family members say she said just that, three days after the attack, at the Sept. 14, 2012, ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base.

George Stephanopoulos asked her Sunday if she’d told the victims it was about the film. Clinton gave a flat “no.” She added: “I said very clearly there had been a terrorist group, uh, that had taken responsibility on Facebook, um . . .” At least four family members disagree.

Tyrone Woods’ father said he hugged Clinton and shook her hand. Then “she said we are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of my son . . . She said ‘the filmmaker who was responsible for the death of your son.’ ”

Sean Smith’s mother said Hillary is absolutely lying . . . She said it was because of the video.Smith’s uncle backs her up.

Glen Doherty’s sister agreed: “When I think back now to that day and what she knew, it shows me a lot about her character that she would choose in that moment to basically perpetuate what she knew was untrue.”

“What she knew” refers to Clinton’s words to daughter Chelsea the night of the assault and the next day to Egypt’s prime minister, which made it plain the secretary of state knew full well that a terror group had long planned the attack.

The lie’s even in her words at the Sept. 14 ceremony: “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.”

Just why the administration united around this lie is another editorial. The disgrace here is Clinton’s refusal to admit her role — even pushing the fib to “comfort” the bereaved.

Stiff as the competition is, this has to count as her lowest-down, dirtiest lie of all.

Editorial: ‘Safe space’ fascists now rule the University of Missouri


waving flagBy Post Editorial Board; November 10, 2015

The Social Justice Warriors now rule at the University of Missouri — to the point that they’re bullying the press and ordering the campus police around.

A viral video shows MU protesters blocking a student journalist from taking photographs — as the radicals declare their tent city (on school grounds) to be a “safe space.”

The crowd uses their bodies to move the photographer away. Then Melissa Click — an MU professor — goes after the videographer, declaring, “Who wants to help me get this reporter out of here? I need some muscle over here.”

The outrage prompted radical leaders to tell the troops on Tuesday that media are “allowed” on campus. Click even apologized.

That’s still some progress, as was the start of faculty voting to revoke Click’s affiliation with the Journalism Department — though not her Communications Department post.

On the other hand, campus police on Tuesday emailed the student body urging kids to report incidents of “hateful and/or hurtful speech or actions.”

The quest for “safe spaces” is starting to look a lot like fascism.

All this, after all, follows the forced resignation of the school’s president and chancellor — for acting too deliberately to a series of alleged racial incidents.

Yes, it was the strike threat from African-American members of Missouri’s football team that left the prez little choice. A forfeit of this week’s game against BYU would’ve cost MU a cool $1 million.

But that just goes to another huge problem in modern academia, one we’ve warned of for years now — schools’ addiction to the cash pulled in by marquee athletic teams.

Between the anti-democratic teachings of so many professors and the profiteering of administrators, today’s campuses look rotten to the core.

What surprise, then, that a minority of extremist students can take over — or that the Social Justice crowd is all too ready to call in the police to enforce its agenda?
