You’d think being married to Bill and all that Hillary would have a sense of humor, wouldn’t you?
Watch the video that set her off, with her usual threats and bullying.
From Judicial Watch:
In what appears to be a first for a serious presidential contender, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is going after five comedians who made fun of the former Secretary of State in standup skits at a popular Hollywood comedy club.
A video of the short performance, which is less than three minutes, is posted on the website of the renowned club, Laugh Factory, and the Clinton campaign has tried to censor it. Besides demanding that the video be taken down, the Clinton campaign has demanded the personal contact information of the performers that appear in the recording. This is no laughing matter for club owner Jamie Masada, a comedy guru who opened Laugh Factory more than three decades ago and has been instrumental in launching the careers of many famous comics. “They threatened me,” Masada told Judicial Watch. “I have received complains before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don’t cut the video.”
Hillary’s contempt for the First Amendment and her absolute zero tolerance for any criticism shouldn’t come as a surprise, as I noted here. Isn’t that what the Citizens’ United case, the current Left’s current bete noir, a Supreme Court case that they consider worse than any one in modern history, was all about? Of course it was! From that referenced post:
Citizens United is a non-profit organization. Prior to the 2008 election, they wanted to air a documentary that they had produced, “Hillary: the Movie,” something that ran afoul of the heinous, anti-1st amendment McCain-Feingold law. During the oral argument of this case, the government’s attorney, Deputy Solicitor General Malcolm L. Stewart, argued that under the existing law, the government would have the right to not only ban movies, but ban books, if they contained even one sentence advocating the defeat of a particular candidate. Fortunately, the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional for the government to ban political speech. Citizens United a victory for the First Amendment, something that the Left hopes you don’t notice. Hillary told supporters in Iowa “I will do everything I can do to appoint Supreme Court justices who will protect the right to vote and not the right of billionaires to buy elections.” What she should have said is “I will appoint political hacks who will make sure it’s illegal to criticize me.”
(An aside: here’s a fun little game to make things lively on Thanksgiving. Ask your favorite liberal, or low information millennial, “Hillary Clinton has promised that, if elected, all her nominees to the Supreme Court, will have to pledge to overrule Citizens’ United. Do you support that policy?” When the liberal or millennial says “yes,” ask him to tell you what the holding was in that case. Sit back and enjoy awkward silence.)
