The nation’s top diplomat was frightened of Fox.
Hillary Clinton personally overturned a State Department decision to eliminate mothers and fathers from United States passport applications while she was secretary of state, complaining to her aides that she wasn’t going to defend the new gay-friendly form before a “Fox-generated media storm.”
According to emails released Wednesday, Clinton wrote in 2011 to complain that a proposal to substitute the words “mother” and “father” on passport applications with the gender-neutral “parent one” and “parent two” would leave her open to attacks from Republicans in Congress.
The proposal was dropped.
According to National Review, Clinton first learned about the proposal from the Washington Post in January 2011, but it had been announced by her own department in a news release a month earlier, explaining that the change was being made “to provide a gender-neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.”
That’s progressive talk that candidate Clinton would be cheering while she chases the Democratic nomination.
But in 2011, facing Republicans in Congress and a media storm “led by Palin et al,” she was singing a different tune.
