Most of us will remember the Arab Spring of 2010. During this exciting season of time, young Arab citizens began to rise up, using social media as a tool, to fight for freedoms in predominately oppressive nations.
It looked like real reform was coming to a part of the world that needed it most. Many of these Muslim-controlled nations denied basic human rights to their citizens, such as freedom of speech and religion. Women, homosexuals, and other religious groups were often oppressed and persecuted. But it maybe all that was about to change.
The Arab Spring seemed to be a revolution that would change these nations into lands of freedom and opportunity.
Then it all went away.
The only lasting legacy of the Arab Spring is an ongoing war in Syria, which has spread violence and terrorism across the world. It’s a sad end to what could have been a great movement.
You might be asking yourself, “How could that have happened?” There’s one answer: Obama and Clinton got involved.
Among the many choices the U.S government made when getting involved in the Arab Spring was to lend support to the wrong leaders. They helped destabilize Egypt, Libya, and Syria. But worse, they helped corrupt regimes fight back against these young Arab protestors.
How? By giving them weapons of course. And who do you think approved it? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
One of the more eyebrow-raising stories from the Clinton Foundation “pay to play” scandal is Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain – whose kingdom donated up to $150,000 directly to the Foundation, plus another $32 million to the Clinton Global Initiative – securing a meeting with the Secretary of State, after which she approved some highly controversial arms sales to Bahrain.
… Clinton and the rest of the Obama Administration gave numerous speeches about the importance of political freedom, but then, after a year of queasy hesitation, sold weapons to Bahrain, which conducted a brutal crackdown on dissenters and human-rights activists.
When people ask you why you think Obama was a bad president and why Hillary would be worse, point to this story.
Obama’s poor handling of the Arab Spring not only denied human rights to millions of people, but helped birth terrorist groups like ISIS. And now we know some of those poor decisions were made because Hillary Clinton was bribed by the leader of Bahrain.
We’re not just talking about guns, by the way. Clinton approved the sale of terrible chemical weapons. Weapons that would be used against citizens just wanting basic human decency.
Most disturbingly, Clinton’s State Department approved the sale of over $700,000 worth of “toxicological agents” to a regime accused of using chemical agents like tear gas against its own people.
All of this because the Clintons got a few million dollars. Clinton sold out the freedoms of an entire nation to line her pockets. It’s shameful and disgusting. On top of that, Clinton tried to cover it up by destroying all documents related to the sale.
CounterJihad brings it all home by reminding readers that the American people, their representatives, and law enforcement were never supposed to see these Clinton documents. She blatantly broke the law to destroy them, instead of handing them over to the State Department.
What can you say about a woman like this? Now she has the audacity to run for President? How many more lives—American and otherwise—will be destroyed because of her greed?
