Disgusting and rreprehensible

In remarks Thursday, Clinton called the provocative video "disgusting and reprehensible." "It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage," Clinton said in Washington, D.C.

This in response to the Bengazi attack this week.
I haven't seen the film in question but I'm quite sure it is potentially "disgusting and reprehensible." 
The implication I hear is that it's really bad to murder people but then again, we are, after all, disgusting and reprehensible.  Some of us at least. 
So, if someone murders a  gay man because they think he is disgusting and reprehensible?  Will Mrs. Clinton say,  "The man's lifestyle denigrated the great religion of Christianity (or Islam) and provoked rage. But still, they shouldn't have murdered him"?
Are we really going to say that the United States of America shouldn't rock anybody's boat?  When did we become such a bunch of wimps? 
The world is full of idiots.  Everyone one of them, according to the constitution, has the right to express their stupidity. 
Mrs. Clinton is proof of that.
