Hillary Clinton Doubles Down on Refusal to Say ‘Radical Islam’
Clinton repeatedly refused to use the term at the Democratic debate last month, raising eyebrows from observers who wondered why she would avoid the obvious characterization.
“You’ve also been reluctant to say we’re fighting radical Islam and I wonder why not? Isn’t it a mistake not to say it plain, that the violence is being pushed by radical elements in that faith?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“Well, that’s a different thing. Radical elements who use a dangerous and distorted view of Islam to promote their jihadist ambitions, I’m fine with that,” Clinton said. “I say it all the time, and I go after Islamists too.”
“So what’s the problem with radical Islam?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“Well, the problem is that sounds like we’re declaring war against a religion, and that to me is, number one, wrong,” Clinton said.
