In case you aren’t aware, the American federal government is the biggest manufacturer in the world. They make the following products: scapegoats, bullsh*t, and bureaucracy.
We learned from Hillary Clinton’s judge ordered, now disclosed emails, that her State Department’s attempt to create the latter two.
According to the Daily Mail,
Hillary Clinton was in full freak-out mode after her State Department announced it was changing language on passport applications in order to be more inclusive of same-sex couples with children, judging from an email she sent two top aides.
The Washington Post first reported the proposed change, a shift from ‘mother’ and ‘father’ to ‘parent 1’ and ‘parent 2’ on applications for children under age 16, on January 7, 2011.
The Post based its story on a press release two weeks earlier that announced the tweak ‘in recognition of different types of families.’
Hillary lashed out at then-chief of staff Cheryl Mills and Mills’ deputy Jake Sullivan in one emailreleased Wednesday as part of a monthly court-ordered document-dump of messages that once lived on Clinton’s private email server.
‘WHO MADE THE DECISION?’ Hillary insisted that she wouldn’t defend a gay-friendly language change ‘in front of this Congress’
‘Who made the decision that State will not use the terms “mother and father” and instead substitute “parent one and two”?’ Clinton fumed on January 8 of that year.
‘I’m not defending that decision, which I disagree w [sic] and knew nothing about, in front of this Congress.’
‘I could live w [sic] letting people in nontraditional families choose another descriptor,’ Clinton explained, ‘so long as we retained the presumption of mother and father.’
‘We need to address this today or we will be facing a huge Fox-generated media storm led by [Sarah] Palin et al.’
Hillary Clinton instructed them to retain “mother” and “father,” but understand that millions of tax dollars can be repositioned just that quickly.
Chalk this one as a small win for the NOT Gay movement!
