Last month, US secretary of state Hillary Clinton in her Human Rights Day address in Geneva – did not talk about the rights of religious minorities in her country or the West. What did she talk about and to a great length how she feels the gays, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) being denied of human rights.
“Today, I want to talk about the work we have left to do to protect one group of people whose human rights are still denied in too many parts of the world today. In many ways, they are an invisible minority. They are arrested, beaten, terrorized, even executed. Many are treated with contempt and violence by their fellow citizens while authorities empowered to protect them look the other way or, too often, even join in the abuse. They are denied opportunities to work and learn, driven from their homes and countries, and forced to suppress or deny who they are to protect themselves from harm.
I am talking about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people, human beings born free and given bestowed equality and dignity, who have a right to claim that, which is now one of the remaining human rights challenges of our time. I speak about this subject knowing that my own country’s record on human rights for gay people is far from perfect. Until 2003, it was still a crime in parts of our country. Many LGBT Americans have endured violence and harassment in their own lives, and for some, including many young people, bullying and exclusion are daily experiences. So we, like all nations, have more work to do to protect human rights at home,” said Hillary.
Very admirable statement from a woman whose country is home to world’s largest child sex slaves. However, Hillary is quite aware of the fact that her Democrat Party needs 28 million LGBT votes while those sexually abused children are not registered voters.
According to the Family Research Council: “Each year, right under our noses, 100,000 American children each year are victimized by sex traffickers. Make no mistake, this is not a problem that’s just “over there.” These heinous crimes are happening in our own backyards”.
As a confirmed Israel-Firster, I never expected Hillary Clinton to speak about human rights of Palestinians, Kashmiris, Chechen, Gypsies in Europe, or Muslim minorities in the US and Europe who have become the Jews in Europe in the past
