The Washington Blade, a prominent gay newspaper, asked Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton about criticism the Clinton Foundation has faced over “accepting millions of dollars from countries with laws that punish homosexual acts with death, including between $10-$25 million from Saudi Arabia.”

The paper asked Clinton, “Do the ends justify the means?”

HILLARY'S RESPONSE:
"I am so proud of the work the Clinton Foundation has done on behalf of vulnerable people all across the world — especially the work to combat HIV and AIDS, an epidemic that disproportionately impacts LGBT communities around the globe. Due to the work of the Clinton Foundation, 11.5 million people in the developing world have access to HIV medication at 90 percent lower cost. That’s more than half of all adults and ¾ of all children receiving treatment today.

I’ve always believed that we shouldn’t shy away from confronting human rights abuses around the world — against LGBT people or anyone else. That’s why, as Secretary of State, I actively stood up to these countries and have advocated for the rights of many, including declaring that “gay rights are human rights,” and made advancing the rights of LGBT people around the world a cornerstone of our foreign policy, including advocating for the first ever United Nations resolution on LGBT rights. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has conducted business deals worth millions of dollars in or with some of these countries and has done it for the sole purpose of padding his own pockets."


1. She does NOT deny she has taken / still takes money from nations who have a practice of condemning and executing homosexuals.
--- “If she is such a champion of human and gay rights, why would she accept money from a state that implements Islamic sharia law which mandates death for homosexuals? If the Clintons really are so pro human/gay rights, they should take a stand and have the decency to return the money. That would be a most powerful and meaningful statement indeed.”

2. She tries to argue that millions taken from nations that murder homosexuals can and has then been used to help save and better the lives of other homosexuals in other tolerant places in the world...so YES, according to her the ends justify the means. If she can use a small portion of the 'blood money' given to her to save a few gays it helps purge her conscience while helping her become President.

3. She tries to distract from the question and what she is doing by attempting to make the issue about Donald Trump.

"In response to a Clinton-supporting commenter, Mark Hatchett asked, “What is it about a lying, corrupt, screeching harridan of a woman that turns you on and makes you think she won’t sell gay folks to the highest bidder in the Middle East?”

“The same Democrats who attack North Carolina have no problem with the Muslim countries where homosexuality is a death sentence,” another commenter wrote."

The amazing thing is gays will likely vote for Cankles overwhelmingly.

She is about the color green, not rainbow.
