Human Rights Campaign heaps unchecked praise on Hillary Clinton ahead of dinner … then, it gets checked

With special council Robert Mueller’s investigation potentially backfiring and Hillary Clinton under scrutiny once again, the Human Rights Campaign embarked on a social media campaign to praise the failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate.

Billing itself as “America’s largest civil rights organization,” the LGBT advocate group tweeted about Clinton’s accomplishments ahead of its annual dinner, which featured the former secretary of state and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

“You’ve changed hearts, minds & laws…You’re on the front lines of the fight for full equality,” the group tweeted.

This pattern of unchecked praise is familiar, be it Clinton’s stint as a U.S. senator or secretary of state, and it was enough to prompt BPR’s chief editor Kyle Becker to ask a couple of legitimate questions.

“Again, hate to interrupt HRC. Can you name tangible contributions of former Sec. Clinton? Or is this all blather?” Becker responded to one tweet.


Clinton spent much of her time Saturday night at the 21st annual HRC National Dinner pandering to the LGBT community by attacking Fox News and the Trump administration.

“I want you to know, I’m with you,” she told the audience. “Today, tomorrow, for the long haul, I won’t be silenced and I hope you won’t be either. That’s a promise from one HRC to another.”

Yet, we’re befuddled over these alleged “progress” HRC kept tweeting about.

In a follow up tweet, Becker pressed: “Sorry, you referring to “progress” of SyrIa, ISIS, Libya, Egypt, No Kor, Iran, Russia under Sec of State Clinton?”


Not that we blame HRC for not having a ready answer. Hell, Clinton herself failed to
answer the question when asked by ABC’s Diane Sawyer in 2014 to list significant things she accomplished during her four years as Secretary of State.

Instead, Clinton changed the subject.
