dem-candidatesThe Democrat National Committee scheduled the debate for a Saturday night to shield front-runner Hillary Clinton from a poor debate performance in front of a large TV audience.

The scheme worked because  the 8 million viewers were barely more than half the audience for the Democrats first debate.

Just because this was the least watched debate of primary season in either party doesn’t mean it wasn’t chock full of crazy.

We’ll count them down in order of crazy to absolutely out-of-this-world nuts

1. Hillary Clinton defends ties to big banks because of 9/11

In 2008, Americans were outraged as the federal government funneled $800 billion in taxpayer money to bail out the financial institutions in the wake of the housing bubble collapsing.

Government shouldn’t be picking winners and losers.

If  businesses are too big to fail, we no longer live under free market capitalism.

Not surprisingly Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama voted for the socialist Trouble Asset Relief Program bailout bill.

In the Democratic debate, Hillary was challenged on her pay-to-play relationship with Wall Street.

Her defense of socialism?

The 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Via a Washington Post debate transcript:

CLINTON: Oh, wait a minute, senator. You know, not only do I have hundreds of thousands of donors — most of them small. And I’m very proud that for the first time a majority of my donors are women, 60 percent.

(APPLAUSE)

CLINTON: So I represented New York, and I represented New York on 9/11 when we were attacked. Where were we attacked? We were attacked in downtown Manhattan where Wall Street is. I did spend a whole lot of time and effort helping them rebuild. That was good for New York. It was good for the economy, and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country

2.  Bernie Sanders claims global warming causes terrorism.

From the start of his Presidency, Barack Obama has done everything in his power to ignore the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.

And of the great examples of the out-of-whack priorities of the Obama regime was his claim global warming is our greatest national security threat.

Bernie Sanders, the self identified socialist who is giving Hillary Clinton a run for her money in the key state of New Hampshire, marched right along with Obama and even took an extra dose of crazy by maintaining global warming is causing terrorism.

That’s right.

It’s not the murderous ideology of radical Islamists that leads to terrorism. It’s the weather.

CNS News reported at the debate that Sanders declared:

“In fact, climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism.

“And if we do not get our act together and listen to what the scientists say you’re going to see countries all over the world–this is what the C.I.A. says–they’re going to be struggling over limited amounts of water, limited amounts of land to grow their crops. And you’re going to see all kinds of international conflict.

“But of course international terrorism is a major issue that we’ve got to address today,”

3.   All three Democrats refused to utter the words “radical Islam.”

By far and away the lowest moment of the debate came when all three Democrat candidates refused to acknowledge America is at war with radical Islam.

Just 24 hours after the deadly ISIS attacks in Paris, the cowardice on display was appalling.

All the candidates were asked if they agreed with Marco Rubio’s statement that the United States is at war with radical Islam.

Bowing to the forces of political correctness in their base, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley toed the Obama line of refusing to name radical Islam as a threat to our national security.

And all three tied for the biggest face palm moment.

Hillary Clinton said using the term radical Islam was ‘not particularly helpful.”

Bernie Sanders stated “the term isn’t what is important.”

And Martin O’Malley claimed the terrorists were “perverting the name of a great religion.”

Those were the top three craziest statements from the Democrat Presidential primary debate.

Let us know in the comment section what you think was the most off-the-wall moment of the Democrat debate.
