On Monday, the Republicans opened the RNC 2016 in Cleveland with the theme “Make America Safe Again”. The speakers included Lt. General Michael Flynn, Willie “Duck Commander” Robertson, US Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, and Pat Smith, Mother of Benghazi victim, Sean Smith.
“I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son. Personally. In an e-mail to her daughter Hillary Clinton blamed it on –shortly after the attack– terrorism, but when I saw Hillary Clinton, …she lied to me and then called me a liar,” she said.
“Since then,” she continued. “I have repeatedly asked Hillary Clinton to explain to me the real reason why my son is dead. I’m still waiting. Whenever I called the State Department, no one would speak to me because they say I am not a member of the immediate family…”
“Sean was my son. Hillary Clinton is a woman, a mother, a grandmother of two. I am a woman, a mother, and a grandmother of two. How could she do this to me? How could she do this to any American family?”
“Donald Trump is everything Hillary Clinton is not,” she said. “He is blunt, direct, and strong. He speaks his mind and his heart. And when it comes to the threat posed by Radical Islamic Terrorism, he will not hesitate to kill the terrorist who threaten American lives.”
“He will make America stronger, not weaker,” she said about Trump. “This entire campaign comes down to a single question:
If Hillary Clinton can’t give us the truth, why should we give her the presidency?”
“That is right,” she said, responding to the crowd. “Hillary for prison! She deserves to be in stripes!”
In her speech at the RNC, Pat Smith said:
“That night, we lost sons, brothers, fathers and husbands. We lost four brave Americans, who made the ultimate sacrifice for the country they chose to serve. And the American people lost the truth.”
Our hearts and prayers are with you Pat Smith! Keep fighting for truth. If your son, Sean, were still living today, he would be very proud of you and your fight for principles, honor and truth!
