The George W. Bush administration was accused of being a bully, imposing its will upon the world, while the Obama administration sees the U.S. as part of the world community. That attitude is defined as presidential doctrine, key goals, attitudes, or stances for United States foreign affairs outlined by Presidents.
Well, guess who now, through Hillary Clinton’s State Department, is being a bully. On Tuesday, December 6, 2011, in Geneva, Switzerland, Hillary Clinton gave a speech about “Human Rights,” specifically about lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and trans-gender (LGBT) rights. Whether or not you agree with Hillary Clinton is NOT at issue here. What is at issue is that, through the State Department, the Obama administration is now doing exactly what it accused the Bush administration of doing. Clinton announced in Geneva that the imposition of the gay agenda on foreign governments now forms “a priority of our foreign policy.” President Obama issued a memorandum ordering the U.S. government to use all means necessary, including diplomacy and foreign aid, to promote gay rights worldwide. How ironic.
Hillary Clinton’s goal and Obama’s goal now is to impose LGBT rights upon all the nations of the earth. In her Geneva speech, she highlighted countries that see homosexuality as sinful. “Being gay is not a Western invention; it is a human reality. And protecting the human rights of all people, gay or straight, is not something that only Western governments do…,” she said. “A country’s cultural or religious traditions are no excuse for discrimination.” Clinton did not mention of the fact that Islamic countries throw homosexuals into jail.
But her view of LGBT rights is not enough She wants us taxpayers to foot the bill for her beliefs. We are now on the hook to provide $3 million to fund a “Global Equality Fund” to work on human rights. Further, Clinton has instructed diplomats bring attention to LGBT rights abroad, and to act as gay rights activists. She announced a task force at the State Department to support and coordinate cases and laws, while working with a range of partners to strengthen human rights protections for all. And in the coming months, the State Department will provide every embassy with a toolkit to help improve efforts. And we have created a program that offers emergency support to defenders of human rights for LGBT people.”
Clinton did not mention of God as the source of rights, but said that governments don’t grant rights. From where, then, do these LGBT rights come? They come from the same place where she discovered an international right to abortion. For Clinton the source of rights is not God but the superior wisdom of an international elite whose members see themselves as gods.
Like it or not, ANYTHING said or done by any member of the Obama administration falls at his feet, is his responsibility, is part of his doctrine. As Rush Limbaugh says, “Elections have consequences.”
But that’s just my opinion.
