Hillary Clinton will go anywhere to receive an award and deliver the same speech that she delivers everywhere “leadership for girls”, “Climate change challenges our policy”, “we need to legislate smarter”.
Or almost anywhere. There is one thing that will make Hillary pass up a venue. The mother of one of her victims.
Former Secretary of State and potential Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, recently cancelled her plans to appear as the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11 in San Diego, amidst planned fervent protests from local San Diego residents.
Protesters have organized under the banner of “The Difference Matters” coalition, a group that primarily consist of local San Diego women who refuse to allow Clinton into their community because of her role in the Benghazi cover up scandal.
Pat Smith, one of the protest’s original organizers and the mother of Sean Smith, an American soldier who was killed in the Benghazi attacks, will lead the protest beginning April 11th.
In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on January 23, 2013, in questions related to the facts surrounding the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton angrily retorted “What difference…does it make ?” On April 11, 2014, concerned citizens will let everyone know The Difference Matters.
