    Chelsea Clinton Got Self-Righteous On Twitter and National Review’s Kevin Williamson Ended It.

    Chelsea Clinton Got Self-Righteous On Twitter and National Review’s Kevin Williamson Ended It.

    Chelsea Clinton received a reality check when she tried to get cute on Twitter in response to a tweet about a story from The El Paso Times.

    The story was about a woman who was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during a court proceeding for an order of protection alleging she was a domestic violence victim.

    The tweet said, “6 ICE agents arrested an undocumented woman at a courtroom as she received a protective order. they were tipped off by her domestic abuser.”

    Clinton quote tweeted the story with the following statement with no historical irony or seeming awareness.





    “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” the tweet reads.

    The responses became a mixed bag of agreement and “we need to remember our privilege,” to references of her parents history of scandal.

    But National Review’s roving correspondent, Kevin D. Williamson, replied perfectly, by invoking the 1999 case of then 5-year-old Elian Gonzalez and her father’s role in the little boy being sent back to Communist Cuba.





    For those who don’t recall the details of the case.

    Elián González was born in 1993 to divorced parents. In 1999, his mother brought him along when she decided to escape the Castro regime, but drowned during the journey. Florida fishermen found 5-year-old Elián floating alone off the coast, near Fort Lauderdale. Although his Cuban-American relatives fought to keep him in the United States, Elián’s father insisted on his return to Cuba. The Clinton administration ultimately backed the father’s claim and extracted Elián forcibly in 2000.

    The story dominated the headlines that year. After months of Americans — the exiled Cuban community, in particular — arguing with the Justice Department over whether or not Gonzalez should be sent back to Cuba to live with his father, or remain with relatives in the U.S. where he was granted legal residency, Attorney General, Janet Reno, with the full support of President Clinton, ordered the boy forcibly removed from his relatives home and sent him back to be raised under a dictator.

    Perhaps Clinton can address that in her next outraged tweet.

    This one wasn't included in this article. But I saw it a couple of days ago concerning the same uppity tweet from the Ugly Duck:





    I'm hoping Webb's daughter realizes how much she's already disliked and stays out of the political realm where it's only going to get a whole lot worse. I don't hope that for her good. I hope for a heartburn-free and mentally-balanced life for all of the rest of us. Two crooks from one family getting in our faces is quite enough!

    I find it mighty sickening indeed that Chelsea took her 2 year old daughter, Charlotte, with her to participate in the "I Am A Muslim Too" rally. Now this will enable Charlotte, if she so chooses to do so in later life, to claim she has been participating in "rights" rallies since she was two years old.
