Why Charlie Hebdo and Benghazi are different yet the same
The Benghazi deaths of four brave Americans, including a U.S. ambassador, were the direct result of an anti-Islamic video. It was a horrible, disreputable video, made by an evil man who had to be imprisoned immediately. Or so we were told for weeks after the incident by President Barack Obama, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Obama even repeated the charge three weeks later at the U.N. General Assembly, even though at that time he knew it wasn’t true. Hillary promised the father of one of the fallen SEALs who died defending the compound that they would punish the filmmaker, rather than promise to apprehend the terrorists responsible for his son’s murder.
Now we have a group of French cartoonists who made satirical cartoons that were anti-Islamic in a comic newspaper, Charlie Hebdo. Based on the logic of our president and secretary of state, aren’t they responsible for the violence? Had they lived, shouldn’t they have been rounded up and imprisoned as well?
Does Islamic terrorism trump freedom of speech? Well, Islamic murderers took care of that question for them.
So which is it? Do Obama and Hillary defend the Constitution of the United States or Islam? The two are mutually exclusive. They must answer that question.
