Hillary Clinton Comes Out…

...in favor of marriage equality:

Good for her.

Andrew Stiles at NRO implies that Secretary Clinton is dancing for donations from gay puppet-masters:

Big Money Backs Clinton on Gay Marriage
 
Former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton announced her support for gay marriage on Monday in a video posted online by the Human Rights Campaign, one of the Democratic party’s most prolific campaign donors over the years.

The Human Rights Campaign has contributed more than $10 million to Democrats since 1990, and has spent more than $21 million on lobbying since 1998, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which describes the group as a “heavy hitter” in federal elections.

On what planet does $10 million in campaign contributions over 23 years qualify as “big money?” Hell, Sheldon Adelson shook $20 mill out of his sofa cushions for Gingrich’s Quixotic primary run before going on to spend serious cash on the actual nominee. And he’s just one dude in one election cycle.

The consensus for marriage equality is accelerating, thanks to the Democrats, notably President Obama. Conservatives like the nitwits at NRO still can’t quite believe this is happening, so they’re casting about for alternate explanations.

Republicans who have the most well-developed sense of political self-preservation will climb off the bigot bus toot sweet, leaving sad busybodies like NOM’s Brian Brown holding a pile of white sheets and “God Hates Fags” signs.

It’s a joy to behold.

SHOCKING.

a lobbying group uses it’s money to lobby. 

Also, obfuscated in the accusation, is that the group spent the money on DEMOCRATS, not Hillary Clinton.  So it is debatable whether she received ANY of the money.

I know at least one person, though, who will agree with Stiles, because everything a Democrat does is tainted, but Republicans and Rand Paul do it from ideologically pure reasons.

Social and political issues don’t get flipped in one fell swoop. It takes small swipes, one after another, until the main issue gets chipped away and finally collapses. This could be happening with gay marriage and other human rights issues.

Unfortunately, it’s happening with abortion laws from the opponents of women’s rights. There is a constant flow of small bills submitted across the country that are attempting to take down Roe v Wafe, and these little swipes are going to add up, too. We really need to pay attention and keep moving forward on all fronts.

It truly is shocking that a politician who supports a civil rights agenda gets support from the civil rights organizations pushing that agenda.

Shocking.

As Donnah notes, the Federal level is the floor show meant to distract us, while the real action is at the state level.
