Demands Clinton’s Anti-Catholic Spokeswoman Resign

MADISON, WI — The latest Wikileaks emails to go public reveal a series of communications involving Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman John Podesta and the campaign’s Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri in which Catholics are described as “severely backwards” and guilty of the “bastardization” of faith in general. The email author goes so far as to accuse Catholics of being “totally unaware of Christian democracy.”

These disparaging remarks were made by John Halpin, an employee at the Center for American Progress — which was run by John Podesta until he went to work for the Clinton campaign.

Clinton spokeswoman Palmieri did not pushback at Halpin’s attacks on Catholics. In fact, Palmieri suggested that these conversions to Catholicism were not authentic, but motivated by social pressure because “their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”

Washington D.C.- Oh anti-Catholicism. You’re always in vogue. And just what we needed to add to this wonderful election journey.

Today, the anti-secrecy and disclosure site WikiLeaks released more than 1,000 emails as part of an ongoing leak of the hacked emails of John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Previously, Podesta worked as the President for the Center for American Progress, or CAP, and the Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton.

Within these leaked emails was a 2011 email thread titled “Conservative Catholicism” sent by CAP Senior Fellow John Halpin to Podesta and to Hillary for America Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri. Palmieri previously served as the Communications Director for Barack Obama and President for the Center for American Progress Action Fund, where she was serving at the time of the emails.
