At a campaign event on Thursday Hillary Clinton took the opportunity to bash Republicans by comparing them to “some terrorist groups” with “extreme views about women.” Her strong words were in response to the Republican Party searching for different avenues to discontinue federal funding of Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics.
Clinton Stated, “I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer, or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she had access to contraception, or anyone who’s ever been protected by an HIV test. Now, extreme views about women? We expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States, yet they espouse out-of-date and out-of-touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st-century America. We’re going forward. We’re not going back.”
As of yet, I have found no evidence to support her absurd accusation. I have not heard or read about any Republican using terrorism in the pursuit of political aims. Not once have I heard or read that any candidate has used violence or threats to intimidate or coerce women nor selling women as sex slaves or asking them to be accompanied by a male chaperon at all times. These, of course, are just a couple examples of a terrorist.
But Hillary, if I do hear one of your opponents using terrorist methods against women I’ll be the first to apologize to you for doubting your judgment.
