I wrote last month that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was to be awarded the American Patriot Award for “defending our nation” and the 2013 Liberty Medal, which would be presented by Jeb Bush. Well, she was presented with the Liberty Medal on Tuesday evening at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Following her acceptance speech one protester began heckling her, ironically the Benghazi attacks.
According to the International Business Times, Clinton stayed far away from any controversial issues in her speech:
Clinton paid lip service to the pressing questions of the day: how the United States should respond to the use of chemical weapons — the question at stake in Syria — and how it should balance the need for both liberty and security. But she did not offer any concrete answer on these highly divisive questions.
The use of chemical weapons “demands a strong response from the international community led by the United States,” Clinton said. “This debate is good for our democracy.”
Clinton’s remarks at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, where she accepted the group’s 2013 Liberty Medal award, came shortly before President Obama was scheduled to speak to the nation about the situation in Syria in a rare Oval Office address.
First, we are not a democracy. We are supposed to be a Republic that uses a democratic process. Clinton knows this, but this is the push among socialists, to get people to believe we are one thing and not another.
Notice in this clip that following her speech, at least one and possibly more protesters are heard chanting “Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi!” All of this took place on the eve of the anniversary of the attacks in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead and the Obama administration, including Clinton blatantly lying to the American people about it.
