Coming days after Muslim terrorists killed 129 people in coordinated attacks in Paris and after the Islamic State has claimed responsibility, Hillary Clinton said this today in New York City in a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations (link):
Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism
Frankly I do not understand what Hillary Clinton seeks to gain from such a ridiculous statement that everyone knows is a lie. She certainly knows it is a lie. Perhaps she spits forth such lies, not only because she is an inveterate liar just for the sport of it, because she gets a sense of power, a perverse frisson, in uttering bold lies that everyone around her accepts as a sign of her power. She is the empress with no clothes, but in her version of the morality play even she knows she is naked.
