Hillary: No I Won't Apologize For Or Retract My Newest Completely Fabricated Lie About Terrorism Being Inspired by YouTube Vidoes

She says ISIS is playing Donald Trump videos to recruit terrorists, which sounds an awful lot like her previous infamous lie about a YouTube video inspiring a spontaneous demonstration in Benghazi.

There's no evidence for this lie -- just like there was no evidence for the last one. Just political convenience.

And yes, just like last time, she's not only not sorry, she's indignant you'd even ask about that.

This confirms the Democrats -- Obama, Hillary, ValJar, all of them -- really do believe that terrorists only attack us because we cross progressives' red lines of good PC Taste.

Or, as AllahPundit puts it:

There's a distinct odor of unimaginative bourgeois left-media consensus around the freakout over Trump as a supposed recruiting tool for ISIS, as if ISIS is some partisan oppo research outfit that can’t ethically invent things whole cloth but will twist an actual fact to their advantage-- and look, Trump handed them an actual fact! The actual thought process here, I think, goes something like this: Cartoonish right-wing populism is the worst thing they can imagine in their own personal Overton window of American politics, therefore any cartoonish right-wing populist proposal must necessarily be enabling ISIS, the world’s worst, most dangerous group of people. It may not actually be true, and it might make no sense when you think about it for five minutes, but this is Larger Truth material if ever there was any.

It's also a demonstration of the progressive conviction that terrorism is actually the fault of its Western victims -- as Michael Moore said of 9/11, why did those terrorists kill the nice people of NYC, when it was really the people of the heartland who were the justifiable targets?

In the minds of some progressives, terrorists' main failing is their inability to distinguish worthy American targets from forbidden ones. I suppose that's why they spend so much time signalling that they're among the Good, Polite, Deferential People who will sign up for sharia and even convert to Islam if that turns out to be Just What ISIS (Really) Wants.
