Explaining Hillary’s ‘Sympathy for the Devil’

When I first read that Hillary Clinton said we should have “empathy” for our enemies, my first thought was — is she senile?  Who is she talking about?  Empathy for Hitler?  Pol Pot?  Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi?  Surely if we only empathized with the ISIS leader a bit more, they wouldn’t be slicing off as many heads or placing as many women in sexual slavery, not to mention shooting large groups after having had them dig their own mass graves, Nazi-style. All that business about global jihad and caliphates and “see you in New York” would go away with a little sympathy.

    I’m beginning to think she is as dumb as “root cause” Turdeau. Heaven help us all if these nitwits win elections.

    • David Murrell

      Oh they will. I predict that Justin wins in 2015, and Hillary wins in 2016. Why? The media love both, so they will win.

  • Hard Little Machine

    No – this simply chicking up her candidacy. It will morph into that squishy women this caregiver that, mother of the world prattle. It’s pure electoral mercenary cynicism.

  • David Murrell

    Part of the reason for Hillary empathizing with ISIS, with all of its war criminality is that Hillary is playing to (a) the left-wing Democratic base, which hates Western valies, and (b) the U.S. media cartel,which likewise hates Western values. We muse realize that she must win the Democratic primary. Much of the U.S. media cartel might support a hard-left Democratic candidate. Hillary knows this. Having said that, she will be a left-wing president, once in office.

  • Hillary is symptomatic of liberals.

    Here’s hoping the 2016 election kicks them in the butt.

    Perhaps the GENIUS Hillary is speaking about Islamic preacher Sheikh Omar Abu Sara at the Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem!

    Here’s his recent sermon…how shall we ‘understand’ this?
    “Let me start by saying that talking about the traits of the Jews requires one to get into a special mode, because when talking about the Jews, we are talking about a people to whom every single vile trait has been attributed…they are most evil of Allah’s creations…I say to the Jews: the time for your slaughter has come…The time to fight you has come, the time to kill you has come.”

    Yes, Hillary, let us understand Sheikh Omar Abu Sara and all those noble PALESTINIANS like him preaching GENOCIDE! Understanding them will make ALL THE DIFFERENCE…won’t it?

    I don’t expect Hillary’s real meltdown until the campaign is going in earnest.

  • Ron MacDonald

    What Hillary Clinton said was remarkably similar to what Justin Trudeau said about ISIS, they both are receiving instructions from their Progressive handlers.

  • Pete_Brewster

    Empathy? Fine talk from the woman whose response to the savage murder of innocent Americans was “What difference does it make?”

    Empathy! People don’t get to where Hillary is today by having empathy. You might as well expect them to have a conscience.
