Remember when liberals went mad when it was discovered Chick-fil-A had committed the “crime” of sponsoring a pro-traditional marriage conference back in 2011? As a company that has a number of gay managers and employees, that was the extent of their “homophobia,” but it still attracted boycotts (which most of their gay employees opposed, by the way).
Now imagine if liberals paid attention to the anti-gay donors funding Hillary Clinton. You likely already know the Clinton Foundation has raked in millions from Middle Eastern nations that oppress women and put homosexuals to death – and her presidential campaign may be benefiting from them too. Big time.
A story is circulating that “On Sunday a report appeared on the Petra News Agency website that included what were described as exclusive comments from Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The comments included a claim that Riyadh has provided 20 percent of the total funding to the prospective Democratic candidate’s campaign, according to Middle East Eye.
The Prince was quoted as saying, “Saudi Arabia always has sponsored both Republican and Democratic Party of America and in America current election also provide with full enthusiasm 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s election even though some events in the country don’t have a positive look to support the king of a woman (sic) for presidency,”
The report was later deleted and the news agency has not responded to requests for comment from Middle East Eye. However, the deletion took place too late, as the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs managed to capture the report and has re-published the original Arabic Petra reportwhich you can see here.
Red State comments, The Clinton flack agency, the Podesta Group, is going batsh** crazy trying to stomp down rumors. This is possible. It would even be plausible if something more substantial had been done to the website. Hacking the website of a minor Middle East news agency to insert a single false report sounds a little too Robert-Ludlum-esque to be believed.
As if the character of her donors wasn’t controversial enough, the FEC may have to go the route of the FBI and investigate further. As a reminder, It is illegal in the United States for foreign countries to try to influence the outcome of elections by funding candidates. If this report is true, that appears not to have stopped the Saudis, however. But then when has doing something illegal ever stopped the Clintons either?
Remember what happened when Anthony Weiner claimed his Twitter account had been hacked? Yeah, riiiight.
