Hillary Clinton calls on world not to discriminate against gays
Los Angeles Times ^ | Dec. 7, 2011 | Kim Geiger

Posted on 12/06/2011 8:07:48 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Reporting from Washington— Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called on world leaders for the first time Tuesday to stop discrimination against gays and lesbians, announcing that the United States would use diplomacy and $3 million in aid to help expand the rights of gay people around the world.

In a speech to mark Human Rights Day, which is celebrated Saturday, Clinton declared that protecting the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people is "now one of the remaining human rights challenges of our time" and compared it to the battles for women's rights, racial equality and religious freedom.

Speaking at the United Nations' human rights body in Geneva, she noted that obstacles to gender equality in much of the world "rest on deeply held personal, political, cultural and religious beliefs."

"Some seem to believe it is a Western phenomenon, and therefore people outside the West have grounds to reject it," Clinton said. "Well, in reality, gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world."

She challenged other governments to join U.S. efforts against gender discrimination hours after President Obama directed U.S. agencies working overseas to help combat the criminalization of sexual orientation and to enhance efforts to protect gay and lesbian refugees and asylum seekers.

Clinton announced the launch of a Global Equality Fund to assist civil organizations that promote equal rights for gays abroad. She said the U.S. had committed more than $3 million to start the fund.

The initiative builds on the Obama administration's effort to promote the rights of gays and lesbians at home. The Pentagon this year dismantled its ban on gays serving openly in the military, and Obama recently directed the federal government not to defend a law that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.

Yeah right! Does anyone see her actually going to her new buddies from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt or the Saudis and pushing this? Yet I am sure Poland will come in for another rebuke for clinging to Catholicism.

We have a memory of what America was. It’s not that which we remember any more.

This is what America is. And it deserved to be judged.

I would not be surprised if we, in our lifetimes, see America’s great cities burnt with fire.

the white house gave an order today or yesterday saying that all diplomats need to work to stop discrimination against homosexuals.

Then there is the bill about sex with animals in the military and now this, all in one week

These people are frigging nuts, we’re talking about homosexuals, a way where two people get off sexually in a very unnatural way and now this admin works on this .

So they promoted radical islam in North Africa and the middle east, they do work with islam and muslims, they tell us islam is a great religion but they now tell us homosexuals are what? normal!!! and now need protection.

Of all the problems in the world they focus on this utter idiotic crap.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, even with their dead people and voting more than ten times they cannot win next year

I’m sure that in some countries they may very well be endangered.
I would guess in those very same countries you’ll see women treated like cattle - daughters murdered by parents in the name of “honor” - and other such loveliness.

My guess, however, is that this is not what Hillary is aiming her barbs at.

can you imagine the founding fathers seeing this agenda today.

They were very smart men but they never thought that two men poking each others crap or two women wearing strap ons pretending to be a man would be about laws today.

If they had thought that this utter perverted disgusting agenda was to take place they would have put this right into the constitution, marriage, military etc.

Not even the most ardent loon homosexual could argue that the founding fathers wanted their so called freedom for this perverted nonsense.

....THIS is their top priority? “ <<<

Since giving up baths and shampoos, Hillary has a lot of time on her hands. What with all the men around her doing the heavy lifting on the nuts and bolts of foreign policy, she has very little to do but strap herself to the belly of a plane to share cumin laced dinners with Al Quaida types and press for world decadence. It beats the boring work of defending and saving Christians under persecution in these same countries.

This is their biggest chance to rally a base which is dillusioned with crony capitalism, extending the Bush tax cuts, war in Libya, the dumping of cap and trade, and the cuts in the budget (even though miniscule) which Boehner got.

Perversion's all this administration has got left.

The Obammunist was told by his homosexual constituents that he needed to make a statement between now and the election or risk their contributions.

This stuff is campaign rhetoric.

Thousands of Christians are murdered for their faith every year. No concern for them at all.

Just naked electioneering/pandering to the base from the contemptible man-child.

I swear I do think this zero is a closet homosexual.
All the problems in the world and he has to focus on this .

Then add the media who ignore all of this and even support this perverted agenda , even like Megyn Kelly on FOX.
They go and live in NY City, they go to their elitist parties, they mix and meet cross dressers, homo’s and homo’s who cross dress who say they’re not homo’s and then after a year they think this weird utter perverted crap is normal.

In school I was tormented for years by 4 nasty boys who were always saying “fruit” and “fairy” at each other. Then I was made miserable by 3 large Polish Catholic girls. Finally there was a boy in junior high and high school who was always making nasty remarks about my female body parts. Our family was poor and I wore hand-me-downs from my mother’s adult friends. I know I am straight. I was married for 44 years until my husband died, and have now been in a great relationship for 5 years.

Upon reflection I realize the 4 boys were also poor. One, the worst, had a skinny rat face, malnutrition, foetal alcohol syndrome??. Another who often sat near me due to alphabetic seating often smelled like no one had ever taught him to wipe his butt properly. The 3 girls went to Catholic school which was really rough in those days. Regarding the last boy, my favorite teacher said to me one day, “You shouldn’t let X bother you so, his father is in a wheelchair, and he has to take care of himself at home.” The next time X said something nasty to me I just looked at him with a look of pity and he never did it again.

Granted there is some bullying connected with sexual identity, but there are plenty of other reasons as well.

She said the U.S. had committed more than $3 million to start the fund.

Of course she did...who actually gets the money that American taxpayers are shelling out? Why is a fund necessary? What's the purpose of a fund? Who oversees the fund?

Chelsea Clinton's husband Marc Mezvinsky makes his hedge fund comeback.

Mrs. Clinton now has an expert on funds in the family.

Just saying...
