When the right takes quotes out of context, are they being willfully ignorant, or do they really believe what the out-of-context quote seems to imply? For example, to go around saying that Hillary Clinton’s “what difference does it make” regarding Benghazi means that she was saying that the deaths don’t matter is completely the opposite of what she meant, when she said:
With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again
But yet people go around quoting “What difference does it make,” as though she meant what difference do the deaths at Benghazi make. Sad.
