Hillary Clinton is desperate to link Donald Trump to David Duke, and the KKK as a whole, to fuel her “Trump as racist” narrative, going so far as to release an advertisement that tried to link him to the racist group. In the infamous ad, she quoted a total of two KKK members who voiced support for Trump, while ignoring that she herself has received over $20,000 in donations from KKK members.
If Hillary wants to play the guilt-by-association game, she’s going to end up indicting herself, because as Newsbusters just reported: Snopes.com was checking out a story the liberal media doesn’t want to touch:
“Hanan al-Hroub, whose husband was jailed for providing chemicals used in making bombs that killed Israelis, was invited to speak at a Clinton Global Initiative dinner.” Ruling: True.
Only The Wall Street Journal has touched the story. James V. Grimaldi reported on Tuesday morning: A Palestinian teacher scheduled to speak at a Clinton Global Initiative dinner on Tuesday is attracting criticism from the Republican Party because the woman’s husband is a Palestinian official who was convicted of participating in a terror attack that killed six Israelis in 1980.
The Republican National Committee said featuring the teacher, Hanan al-Hroub, at the last Clinton Global Initiative event was insensitive particularly as New York law enforcement is investigating a New Jersey man for planting bombs in the region. Ms. al-Hroub’s husband, Omar, served 10 years in an Israeli prison for his role in the bombing.
“In the wake of this weekend’s attacks, granting a platform to the spouse of a terrorist bomb-maker just miles away from where explosives were detonated days ago is an insult to the victims and makes a mockery of the Clinton Foundation” said Raj Shah, deputy communications director of the Republican National Committee.Clinton Foundation donor Haim Saban issued a statement “explaining” the fiasco, stating that, “Hanan al-Hroub is a beacon of hope in a part of the world that is very dear to me and in desperate need of more hope. I only wish more people honored her and the cause that she embodies.” You’d think being married to a convicted and previously jailed terrorist would overshadow whatever that “cause that she embodies,” but to the Clinton’s, apparently not.
As has been said before, if liberals didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all.
