Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that the State Department played an instrumental role in sealing the deal for pop-rock star Lady Gaga to perform at a gay pride rally in Rome, Italy.
Clinton specifically pointed to a letter that David Thorne, the U.S. ambassador to Italy, sent to Lady Gaga urging her to participate in the event.
And then there is the work that our embassy team in Rome has been doing, Clinton said. Two weeks ago they played an instrumental role in bringing Lady Gaga to Italy for a Euro Pride concert.
Now as many of you know Lady Gaga is Italian American and a strong supporter of LGBT rights, said Clinton. And the organizers of the Euro Pride event desperately wanted her to perform and a letter to her from Ambassador Thorne was instrumental in sealing the deal.
Mrs. Clinton made the remarks at the State Department at a celebration of LGBT Pride Month co-hosted by the department and Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies (GLIFAA), a group that, according to its website, represents lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) personnel and their families in the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Foreign Commercial Service, Foreign Agricultural Service, and other foreign affairs agencies and offices in the U.S. Government.
On June 11, Lady Gaga performed at a rally at the ancient Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy. The rally followed a gay pride march through the city of Rome.
Gaga sparked controversy earlier this year with the release of her song Judas in early May. The video depicted Gaga as a Mary Magdalene figure--in a motorcycle gangwho becomes enamoured with Judas. The video opens with a motorcycle gang cruising down a freeway, as Gaga clutches onto a Jesus-like figure who wears a golden crown of thorns, said a Billboard.com description of the video.
Oh, I'm in love with Judas, Judas, says the song. In the most Biblical sense I am beyond repentance. Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind.
The open embrace of sodomy by this Administration is beyond disgusting.
The real discouraging thing about it is that an increasing number of people in this society will celebrate such moves as being "open," "inclusive," and "tolerant." Many of these same people would claim that this is "what Jesus would do" (barf) and pronounce it the "Christian thing." (again barf)
Sounds like Hillary’s cankles swelled with pride.
WoW! What a great job, Hillary! Iran and North Korea have nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them, but YOU did something much more important by bringing Lady Gag-gag to Rome! You GO girl . . .STRAIGHT TO HELL!!!
Will Hillary and Huma walk hand in hand?
...Hilda is no longer interested in Huma since she’s been “soiled” by the pervert. But just like a libtard, she projects herself and the State Department into the cutter for political reasons?....or is she networking for a “new” carpet?
good thing we got our priorities in order.
God’s way, or man’s way. Sadly, today, everything is acceptable.
Thanks, just another reminder of why I can’t stand this woman.
Maybe we should bring back Saturnalia? When in Rome...
Hillary and Gaga could both, very well indeed, benefit from the use of some feminine deodorant.
The State Department at home, and the Ambassadors it supports abroad, show the face of the United States to the world. Hillary Clinton and Lady GaGa. Makes sense, because we have truly become a nation of perverts.
Just bring back the fire & brimstone!
It is astounding that they waste time and resources on such malignant drivel. It is even more astounding that they express pride in doing so. Strange times. PRAY
Why on earth would the state department be involved in entertainment?
The entire American political scene is (presently) a side show.
We have our opportunity in a little more than a year.
Well-stated! The Sociopath of State can take the rest of the socialist scumbags with her. DEFUND all socialist collectives, foreign and domestic. DISMANTLE the State Dept.
Each day with this Administration, one awakes to a fresh affront to common decency.
Who will provide the millions of gallons of disinfectant to cleanse the City after they through?
That entertainer whose name I refuse to mention is so low she could walk upright under Madonna.
Slime like her are the best advertisements for wholesome County and Western Music.
Yet they play her crap in grammar schools!!
Nice to know our diplomatic corps has its priorities in order.
The New America.
Hope and Change.
So somebody else has told me.
Sure would be nice if people posted the entire title of the article when it's less than 100 characters.
So 'PROUD' to be a Loser in things eternal? Astoundingly stupid are the willfully blinded minds. Their 'heaven on earth' is the best it ever gets for them.
Hellary is more of a reprobate than I realized. LIEberal woman are trashy and love the same.
Strange times, indeed.
What the heck is the US State Dept. doing involved in this? Just when I think this administration can sink no lower....
How much farther down can people in this administration pull this country....these current people are doing everything opposite of what and how I was taught and laughing in my face. How disturbing. They are making the last part of my living life a miserable nightmare.
Don't worry about it -- FR generally has different readers online at different times. Would be different if there were four or five of the same article posted over a couple of hours.
