Oh, the drama! John Kerry spent Christmas in Cambodia during the Viet Nam War. Obama could have made millions as a high-flying businessman, till he gazed in an elevator mirror. Hillary herself was shot at during a fact-finding mission in Kosovo. And now, this:
When Hillary Clinton spoke at the Women in the World Summit in New York City on Saturday had the audacity to compare Georgetown Law Student Sandra Fluke to women activists in Burma who were beaten, sold into slavery and locked under house arrest.
That’s right. The United States Secretary of State actually tried to equate Ms. Fluke’s quest for birth control coverage with Aung San Suu Kyi‘s struggle for freedom in Burma, where she spent nearly 15 years under house arrest for being a pro-democracy advocate, an act which she eventually won a Nobel Peace Prize for.
Clinton’s exact remarks?
“Because for me, it has not been so much work as a mission, it has not been as strenuous as it has been inspiring, to have had the chance throughout my life, but certainly in these last 20 years, to have the privilege of meeting women and girls in our own country and then throughout the world who are taking a stand, whose voices are being heard, who are assuming the risks that come with sticking your neck out, whether you are a democracy activist in Burma or a Georgetown law student in the United States.”
Apparently testifying before Congress to force your university to pay for your birth control is now on par with being sold into slavery.
