• Hillary Clinton Was Angry When State Department Started Using LGBT-Friendly Terms

    The State Department decided back in 2011 that passport applications would no longer use the term “mother” and “father,” and would instead begin using the terms “parent one” and “parent two.”

    The State Department defended its gay-friendly decision and ay rights groups like Human Rights Campaign declared it “a positive step forward for all American families.”

    Conservative groups, like Family Research Council, blasted “the topsy-turvy world of left-wing political correctness”

    The latest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released Wednesday reveal that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was also outraged by the change.


    “Who made the decision that State will no longer use the term ‘mother and father,’ and instead substitute ‘parent one and two’?” she chided her aides in an email. “I’m not defending that decision, which I disagree [with] and knew nothing about, in front of this Congress.”

    Clinton contended that she “could live with” a situation where gay parents could choose another descriptor, but demanded that the passport application must “retain the presumption of a mother and father.”

    “We need to address this today,” she warned, “or we will be facing a huge Fox-generated media storm led by [Sarah] Palin et al.”
