Hillary Clinton, Leader Of The Evil Party

I just watched the video launching Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign. She's a poor communicator and comes off as disingenuous. That's nothing new. The video's focus on helping the middle class is vague, unconvincing, and dubious coming from the Democratic party. That's nothing new. What is new, relative to presidential politics, is the video's promotion of homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Barack Obama ran in 2008 as an opponent of same-sex marriage, but eventually changed his position, again, in time for the 2012 campaign. By contrast, Clinton's team has chosen to explicitly promote homosexuality and same-sex marriage multiple times from the start, in the video that launches Clinton's campaign.

People often refer to the Republicans as the stupid party and the Democrats as the evil party. There's a lot of truth to that. When you hear somebody making the oft-refuted claim that there's no significant difference between the parties, remember which party has been at the forefront of mainstreaming abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, transgenderism, and other perversions. Which party's candidate do you want choosing future Supreme Court justices?


  1. Good distinction, Jason.The republican party has gotten worse and worse both morally and fiscally but the dems are way out in front with their evil agenda. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. From a New York Times piece, which quotes two reporters with experience covering Hillary Clinton:

    "This video is very much about the Democratic coalition of today — as you say, a gay couple getting married as a campaign centerpiece would have been unimaginable even in the President Obama re-elect in 2012."

    Notice, too, that both contributors to the article mention the homosexual aspects of the video near the start of their conversation. That stood out to both of them.

  3. I doubt that whoever runs as the Republican presidential candidate will come out against gay marriage. I don't think that the Indiana Governor wouldn't have caved so quickly without Republican party pressure to do so.

    1. Valerie,

      Mike Pence mishandled the situation in Indiana, but he didn't come out in support of same-sex marriage, much less did he take the initiative to break new ground by making such a position prominent in a campaign the way Clinton has. And I see no reason to think Pence made the mistakes he made because of some sort of influence by other Republicans that will be applicable to whoever gets the presidential nomination next year. I expect the Republicans to weaken on issues related to homosexuality over time, but they're still significantly better than the Democrats. They're also significantly better on a lot of other issues.

  4. Good post making a very important point.

    There's no reason for Christians to get mad at Republicans. If we stop voting, more Democrats will be elected. If we switch to a third party, more Democrats will be elected. If we start our own third party, more Democrats will be elected. Leaving aside those who are Christians in name only, true Christians are a minority in this country. The only reasonable thing for Christians to do is vote Republican, holding our noses if necessary.

    At its worst, the Republican party has never been as hostile to Christian values as the Democrats currently are. The Republican Party will never be the Christian Party. But it's enough for us that they will never be the Democrat Party either.

    Again, for the sake of emphasis, Christians who forsake voting for Republicans will do so to their own peril and to the peril of the cause of Christ for coming generations. Hold your noses and keep voting!
