The other night, Hillary Clinton publicly compared Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine with Hitler’s actions in the run-up to WWII. Then she decided she was just kidding.
Hillary Clinton on Wednesday pulled back from comparing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine to those of Hitler.
She said comments made the night before at a private event were meant only to bring “a little historical perspective” to Russia’s claim that it entered the Crimean peninsula in Ukraine in order to protect ethnic-Russians.
“That is reminiscent of claims that were made back in the 1930s, when Germany under the Nazis, kept talking about how they had to protect German minorities in Poland and Czechoslovakia and elsewhere throughout Europe,” she said. “So I just want everybody to have a little historic perspective. I am not making a comparison, but I am recommending that we can perhaps learn form this tactic that has been used before.”
So, Hillary Clinton didn’t say what she very clearly said. She subsequently remembered that she’s running for president as a Democrat, which means you just misunderstood her.
It’s perfect: A liar called out another liar by comparing him to an even more infamous liar, and now she’s lying about that.
Incidentally, Hillary is among the Obama administration lackeys who mocked Mitt Romney during the 2012 campaign for saying Russia is still a threat (video courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon):
“It’s somewhat dated to be looking backwards.” Yeah, who needs a little “historic perspective” anyway, Hill?
In related news: Enthusiastic Hillary 2016 supporters can’t think of a single thing she accomplished. Besides fooling a few dummies into thinking she’s presidential material? Yeah, that’s a tough one…
Maybe Putin is like Hitler. Maybe he isn’t. What difference, at this point, does it make?
