Fascists: Faced with the publication this year of three unauthorized biographies, the Clintons are demanding that such works “should neither be allowed or enabled.”

The Clintons’ prepared statement is very clear:

Their behavior should neither be allowed nor enabled, and legitimate media outlets who know with every fiber of their being that this is complete crap should know not to get down in the gutter with them and spread their lies. But if anyone isn’t sure, let’s strap all three to a polygraph machine on live TV and let the needle tell the truth. [emphasis mine]

As Ed Morrissey notes bluntly at the link, “Their behavior should not ‘be allowed’? What authority exists to bar these authors and their publishers (one of which is Regnery, like Hot Air a subsidiary of Salem Communications) from engaging in political speech? A better question: What authority do the Clintons propose to stop political speech?” [emphasis in original]

    Hmmm, would such a ban also apply to self-serving rewrites of history that paint the politicians in only a positive light?

    I thought so.

    Why whatever a Progressive wants (whim?), shall always rule under the Alinsky Protocols of the Elite Elders!

    If they find it so heinous why don’t they sue the most offending authors? Jesse Ventura just prevailed in such a case. I think that would solve their problem in defending their stellar reputations (I vomited as I wrote that part about defending their reputations).

    And what was the position of the Clintons when Sarah Palin was undergoing worse treatment?

    I thought so.

    Let’s put Hillary on the lie detector and ask her about Benghazi.

    Yes, the way to deal with bullies has always been to stand up to them. Every time that has been done to Hillary Clinton she wilts like an unwatered daisy, immediately claiming victimhood. Any or all of the publishers targeted by the Clintons should accept their challenge — as long as they both submit to the same polygraph exams.

    I almost cant think of a more corrupt pair of politicians than these two criminals, if this women is elected president, those that voted for her deserve the hell on earth they are sure to find.

  • Cotour
