Hillary talks of non-existent gay rights in parts of Africa and Asia

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at Syracuse:

In parts of Africa and Asia, she said, gay rights is "just a totally foreign concept."

"I mean, the first response is, 'We don't have any of those here,'" she said, to laughter. "Second response is, 'If we did, we would not want to have them and would want to get rid of them as quickly as possible. And it's your problem, United States of America, that you have so many of those people. So don't come here and tell us to protect the rights of people we don't have or that we don't want.'"
Ironically, this is probably the same view the white South African government had during the 1980s -human rights for people of color as a foreign creation.
