Hillary Clinton Still Does not Support the LGBT community

WikiLeaks has been releasing thousands of emails from Hillary Clinton and many of them let the American public know how she really feels towards them. The LGBT community is definitely one of those groups of people. Many Democrats, including Hillary, have been claiming to be the champions of gay rights, especially since the Supreme Court deemed gay marriage legal in all 50 states. But what about before this Supreme Court decision? How has their opinion changed, if at all? WikiLeaks has now released a particular thread of emails showing Hillary’s stance on marriage has, in fact, not changed from her earlier views.

First, let us look at her previous stance on the issue. Back in 2004, Hillary stated “Marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman.”

Later on, Hillary claimed to have changed her stance on gay marriage. But was it for votes, as many Democrats in the past have used minorities and groups to farm for voters? According to the email release from WikiLeaks, it appears that might be so. It shouldn’t be a shock to anyone that Hillary is using the LGBT community to receive more votes.

There is another issue that many have noticed after the Orlando terrorist attack shooting. Many in the gay community are yearning more and more for a right to self-defense. Hillary, obviously being an enemy to the right to bear arms, would be a disaster for the LGBT community. It would leave them as sitting ducks waiting to be the next victim of a bigot who does not agree with the idea that the community has rights.

There is another solution for the LGBT community. This solution is the people who have always championed gay rights: the Libertarian Party. We in the Libertarian Party have always stood up for gay rights, without looking for votes in return.
