Hillary Clinton's weird charge of treason
...It is also an insult to the intelligence of Muslims around the world. What she is saying is that a few words from Trump can turn a peace loving Muslim into a homicidal maniac looking to commit mass murder. The reality is that the words that do that are uttered in mosques run by radical Islamists, yet she ignores their role in the recruitment process. Her logic is nearly as insane as that of the mass murdering Muslims.
As Politico helpfully notes, the words Clinton used to describe Trump are taken, verbatim, from the US Constitution:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.This statement simply highlights Clinton's low wattage intellect and her total unfitness to serve in any position of responsibility. Giving aid and comfort to ISIS, if you want to get down to the core of the matter, was overthrowing Qaddafi and setting off a civil war in Syria that gave ISIS the space it needed to expand. And the argument proffered by Hayden and Olsen show why we are losing the war with radical Islam because it is being run by weak-kneed, spineless little men who simply can't face down the enemy. They are trying to pacify and appease Islamic terrorists and ISIS. Their hope is by being kind, gentle, and inoffensive that radical Islamists will leave us alone. If you want to see the error of this way of thinking look at Britain, France, Belgium, and Germany where the governments have done everything but put on a burqa and become sex slave to radical Islamists and the citizens of those nations are raped, assaulted, shot, and blown up with rather monotonous regularity.
Using Clinton's logic, Franklin Roosevelt was guilty of treason because the Germans used him and Churchill in their war propaganda to boost recruitment and regime loyalty. No one, on the other hand, used Neville Chamberlain.
