The ‘Wiesel’ Candidate

Hillary Clinton is out with a statement condemning the attack against Elie Wiesel….

“The shameful attack on Elie Wiesel is a violent reminder that we must continue to speak out against Holocaust denial and against hate crimes that seek to silence free speech. Elie survived the Holocaust and has spent a lifetime urging us never to be indifferent toward horrible violence against humanity, never to be passive in the face of suffering and moral wrong. We must not be indifferent when confronting violent acts of hate or disgusting hate speech – whether preached by a world leader or petty thugs – like denying the horrors of the Holocaust. We should all take a page from Elie, passionately dedicating ourselves to fighting genocide, fighting indifference, and fighting for a better future for all children.”
