What Was Spotted Behind Hillary At Her Big Announcement Has Many Crying ‘Conspiracy!’
Twitter lit up over the weekend with speculation over whether Hillary Clinton’s campaign planted a gay couple prominently behind her on the platform, who just happened to kiss on queue when the candidate stated her support for homosexual marriage.
Clinton has made a well-publicized flip-flop on the issue since her last time as a candidate in 2008.
As reported by Western Journalism, Clinton claims her position on the issue has evolved over time.
(See minute 15:29 for the kiss on queue.)
When she ran for the U.S. Senate in New York in 2000, she said: “Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.”
She also indicated that if she had been in the Senate at the time, she would have voted for the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which her husband signed into law.
In 2004, from the Senate floor, Clinton said:
I believe that marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage, to believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage, or to the fundamental bedrock principle that exists between a man and a woman, going back into the mists of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.
In 2007, Clinton said that she still believed marriage is between a man and woman, but stated her support civil unions. More
As if to put an exclamation mark on her remarks, the Clinton team tweeted a quote from her speech.
