Crooked Hillary stepped up her attacks on the Second Amendment when she shamelessly blamed the gun lobby for last year’s terrorist attack at a San Bernardino holiday party. The incident shocked the nation and served notice on the danger of radical Islamic sleeper cells that could be activated at any time.

The rampage by husband and wife death squad of ISIS groupies Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik that left fourteen dead was clearly an act of terrorism. The Feds treated it as such and while the Muslim overtones may not mesh with the forced diversity plague that is choking off free speech, it is God’s honest truth. There is also the fact that the couple’s home was a veritable bomb making factory, a pesky detail that Mrs. Clinton and her speechwriters conveniently omitted in order to pin the blame where it was politically advantageous.

Hillary is hitting the campaign trail hard in advance of the critical California primary and spewing whoppers in order to avoid what would be a humiliating defeat to Bernie Sanders. In what is another lie from a pathological fibber, Mrs. Clinton is looking to whip up support by targeting anyone but the killers and their hateful ideology. There are few more effective bogeymen in the Democratic party playbook than gun owners and manufacturers and Clinton will heavily rely on demonizing them in the run-up to the election.

According to the Los Angeles Times “San Bernardino attack is subtle undercurrent in Clinton speech”:

Two standbys of Hillary Clinton’s stump speech — riffs on guns and national security — assumed added resonance in San Bernardino, the city that was shaken by a terrorist attack six months ago.

Speaking at CSU San Bernardino on Friday night, Clinton’s message was subtle but unmistakable: Here, these issues are personal.

“You here in this beautiful city know the horrors, the losses associated with gun violence are just unimaginable,” Clinton told about 1,000 attendees, as she vowed to “take on the gun lobby.”

Later, she added that residents “know so well here that the most important responsiblity of any president is to be the commander-in-chief.”

The rally took place around 10 miles from the Inland Regional Center, the site of the mass shooting in December, in which a radicalized husband and wife gunned down 14 people.

The speech was blatant pandering to gun-grabbing liberal fruitcakes whose ideological blind spots prevent them from seeing the barbaric slaughter as an act of religious terrorism. The handguns belonging to Farook and Malik were purchased legally and the “long gun” was procured by a friend and neighbor acting as a straw buyer. Malik also took to social media to praise ISIS in the midst of the attacks so there is no denying the Islamist element.

But Hillary has a vested interest in downplaying the threat of radical Islam and it’s armies of murderous fanatics. It was her great idea to back a military overthrow of Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi that led to the destabilization of the region, triggered humanitarian catastrophe refugee crisis and created a vacuum that was quickly filled by raving Muslim extremists.

It’s far easier to run on a message that demonizes the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans than a more accurate one that she is the practically the mother of ISIS.  Not even the gullible liberal schmucks would be able to get behind something like that.
