Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama seem to think we should order our affairs to make it more difficult for ISIS to recruit jihadists. This past Saturday night at the Dems’ Hillary be-in, Clinton therefore held it a black mark against Donald Trump that he had been featured in ISIS recruiting videos. One problem with her argument: Hillary was making up the factual predicate. Her campaign has conceded that no such video exists.
Well, of course. Hillary has a thing about videos. She also has a thing about the truth.
The nonexistence of ISIS recruiting videos featuring Donald Trump isn’t really the only problem with Hillary’s case. Indeed, it’s not the biggest problem. The biggest problem is that Hillary Clinton’s husband is featured along with Barack Obama in the recruiting video ISIS posted online late last month (below). In the video Bill Clinton is typecast as “the fornicator.” By her own logic, she really ought not to lead the United States.
A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State on November 24 was released in multiple languages. The English version is directed at the United States and taunts, “Bring it on.” Other videos in other languages with similar content matter were released at the same time, and include French, Russian, and Turkish.
The video is titled “No Respite” and gets its name from Quran verse 71…
Heavy itself cannot authenticate the video, but I am not aware of any challenge to its authenticity. The New York Post followed up last week with Mike Walker’s article “I just found out I’m in an ISIS video” (the headline refers to Will Hammond). The Post treats the video as authentic.
Were Hillary to be elected president, she would be an invaluable recruiting tool for any group that thinks a woman’s role should be confined to baking cookies and birthing jihadists. ISIS is one such group, as they make clear in their 10,000-word manifesto on women.
Can we get any comment from the Clinton campaign on her husband’s appearance in the ISIS recruiting video? The existence of the video appears to be one of those inconvenient facts the mainstream media are dedicated to treating as Top Secret.
