Fact Check: Hillary, Champion of Women
Yesterday, while stumping in Ohio, Hillary Clinton “champion of women,” stated that her GOP rivals for the presidency of the United States hold “extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States. Yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back.”
I would find this laughable, if it wasn’t tragic on so many levels:
First, this is a woman who has shamelessly taken millions upon millions of dollars from countries that truly “hold extreme views about women,” and “espouse out of date, out of touch policies” through her “charitable” Foundation. These are countries that condone “honor” killings, force children into marriages with grown men, do not let women drive or go out of the home without a male relative escort, and stone women. Have I missed anything, Madame Secretary?
Secondly, Hillary Clinton has not been shy about her admiration for Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger. And, if you want to talk about “out of date, out of touch views,” look no further than avowed racist and eugenicist, Margaret Sanger! Let’s just look at a few of her quotes, to underscore the point, and hold up this “shining beacon” that Mrs. Clinton admires so much:
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.” 1
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” 2
Further, Secretary Clinton is the proud recipient of the Margaret Sanger award, and though she says she “deplores” the racist statements, she still admires the woman, her work (which was the extermination of “undesirables”), and accepts the award!
And, lastly, Hillary supports abortion on demand. She may think that abortion foes are “backward thinkers,” but as recent events have shown (something pro-life supporters have known all along), abortion is the brutal murder of innocent life. What can be more horrific, more hostile to living and pre-born women than the barbaric practice of abortion? That life for “body parts” could be so casually dismissed over Chianti and salad, while discussing lavish purchases with literal “blood money,” is acceptable, and pro-lifers are “backward” and “out-of-touch?” If so, I gladly plead guilty to being “backward” for the sake of human life, rather than “enlightened” with “hands swift to shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:17).
Hillary paints herself as the “champion of women,” while embroiled in “a little ethics snafu” that should cost her the bid for the highest office in the land; with the blood of four American citizens on her hands and on her watch; and the past defense of a child rapist while painting the preteen female victim as the villain . . . none of which make her a champ, but only paint those (p)sycophants who would still vote for her in a heartbeat, as chumps.
