Hillary Clinton: "that is not who we are '

She is right. That is not who most of us are. But the problem is, that IS who they are. Not all of them, but far too many. Those who use the language of hate. Those who defend the use. Those who deny its consequences. Many of them knowingly expect and, dare I say, even hope for such outcomes.

Those people, including especially those in leadership positions, people who do represent America, may be forced to tone down their rhetoric in the future, and they may lose their ability to manipulate others into doing their dirty work, but it's not going to change who they are or how they think.

When asked by a student why many in the United States target the entire Arab world in reference to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Clinton condemned "extremists and their voices," and said both countries had to work to overcome the strong influence of those voices, according to the Associated Press.

"We have extremists in my country. A wonderful, incredibly brave young woman Congress member, Congresswoman Gifford(s), was just shot by an extremist in our country," Clinton said.

"The extremists and their voices, the crazy voices that sometimes get on the TV, that's not who we are, that's not who you are, and what we have to do is get through that and make it clear that that doesn't represent either American or Arab ideas or opinions," Clinton continued.


Edit: to rearrange some stuff
