Anti-Clinton warrior Larry Klayman, the conservative legal activist and conspiracy theorist, wrote this weekend that now that marriage equality is legal nationwide, it is high time that Hillary Clinton come out of the closet:
At the outset of what I am going to say in this column, let me make one thing clear. I totally respect a person’s right to live his or her life as he or she may choose, so long as no one is hurt as a result. And, that goes for someone’s sexual preference, even though homosexuality is not endorsed in the Bible, and it is not my “cup of tea.” But gay and lesbian people, I have found in my lifetime, are generally very nice and kind, and they have a right to be treated equally, not discriminated against. They should be frankly left alone to be what they want to be. That’s called “freedom.”
In today’s world, it is no longer a social stigma to be gay or lesbian, and as a result the Supreme Court has even ruled that they constitutionally are to be accorded the right to marry each other. As a result, I have much less respect for those gays and lesbians who continue to live in the closet and hide their lifestyle, particularly when this happens for partisan political purposes. Case in point, one Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has apparently lied about her sexual preference for decades to help pave the way for her presidential candidacy.
While I knew the names of some of these “women,” I never revealed them publicly, although rumors abound. In recent years, Huma Abedin, the Palestinian wife of pervert Anthony Weiner and one of Hillary’s top aides, has been one of those rumored to be “in bed” with Hillary. Indeed, this might help explain her marriage to disgraced former Rep. Weiner and why it did not end sooner for political reasons. But I do not make any accusations.
The real issue is why, in this age of widespread acceptability of the gay and lesbian lifestyle, and as Hillary asks for the vote of gays, lesbians and transgender people, would she, by material omission, continue to appear to hide her sexual preference? Is she ashamed of it, and if so, is she worthy of claiming to be the champion of gays, lesbians and transgenders?
I do not endorse any candidate for elective office and never have. But gays, lesbians and transgenders have to wonder why Hillary would call Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a “racist” against people of an alternative lifestyle, and then continue to lie about her own sexuality. For gays, lesbians and transgenders, this is an affront to them personally. This continued deceitful hypocrisy by Hillary has to call into question her own commitment to gay, lesbian and transgender rights.
