Hillary denounces Hobby Lobby ruling as Sharia law

What she a different person back in 1993 or something?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday turned her back on her own White House history to liken the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby religious freedom case to countries  that practice Sharia law to discriminate against women.

Speaking at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colo. (fee arrangements unknown), Clinton never came out and identified the countries she was comparing five Supreme Court justices to, but made it clear what their most recognizable features are.

“It is a disturbing trend that you see in a lot of societies that are very unstable, anti-democratic, and frankly prone to extremism,” Clinton said. “Where women and women’s bodies are used as the defining and unifying issue … because of their religion, their sect, their tribe, whatever.”

“Anti-democratic,” “prone to extremism,” with a tendency to use women to prop up “their religion, their sect, their tribe, whatever.”

Raise your hand if that sounds like Belgium.

Unfortunately for Clinton, there are a couple of problems with her attempts to paint Monday’s ruling by Justice Samuel Alito and Co. as the Taliban on the Potomac.

First of all, it’s Hillary’s Dems who are always buddying up with the outright Islamo-fascists who run things in the more benighted parts of the world – and their more PR-savvy versions in Western Europe and in the States. If there’s a party bent on bringing Shariah to the United States, it’s Hillary’s Democrats and nobody else.

Second, it was Hillary’s own husband, President Bill Clinton, who signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 1993, so it’s a fair bet she didn’t kick about it at the time.

That was all of 20 years ago, though, back when Democrats actually had to pretend they believed in religious freedom to get elected.

Even with her eyes on 2016, Hillary’s not bothering with that anymore.
