It’s My Blog And I’ll Rant If I Want To – The DADT Repeal And Our Fight For Our Equal Rights – It’s Time To Put Up Or Shut Up Baby

Despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans think that the apartheid like Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell should be repealed NEANDERTHAL DINOSAURS in both The Pentagon and Congress are mucking up the works. (Not to mention the Republican Party that is doing its best to drag this stall out in hopes of big mid-terms wins, which will kill any chance that DADT will be repealed. And you know what? I am sick of it!

I am sick of posting about it everyday. I am sick of the Democrats with balls the size of raisins and backbones made of jelly, I am sick of our “fierce fucking advocate” President. I am sick of the “lets throw a cocktail party and kiss ass” HRC, and I am sick of being treated like a second class citizen.

Our supposed allies, the Democrats take our money and promise us equality but can’t control their own party. It’s been infiltrated by closet Republicans masquerading as “conservative” or “blue dog” democrats and the “old timers” who look at politics as a life long job and refuse to do what’s right because they are afraid of not being re-elected? Well you know what? It’s time for the REAL POLITICIANS who go into office to do good, not just for a paycheck, stature, and power and the REAL Democrats to start turning on their own and clean house and put hose rabid blue dogs down, and send Senator’s Grandma and Grandpa off to the nursing home.

And now to top it off something that should be simple like the DADT Repeal has become the most massive clusterfuck in recent LGBT History.  (And if this happens with the DADT repeal imagine what EDNA, and the repeal of DOMA will be like.)

Chris Geidner at Metro Weekly talked with Senator Carl Levin, one of the two Senator’s in charge of the DADT repeal has some concerns about the repeal happening this year. (Levin along with Joe “Loser Fake Democrat” Lieberman are the point men on this. Why a GAY Senator ios not involved is just ridiculous and insulting also.)
Well isn’t that just lovely.

When asked about equality advocates’ concern that a moratorium on enforcement of the military’s ”Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy would put off a vote on repealing policy this year, Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said on Thursday, ”That’s not my concern. My concern would be that the vote on ending ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ gets defeated.”

When asked if that meant the Senate Armed Services Committee chairman had concerns that such a vote would be defeated this year, Levin’s response was blunt:

”Yeah, darn right I do.”

Well isn’t that just lovely. Where’s the “supposed” Democratic Majority? Exactly which Democrats ARE NOT on Board with the Repeal. NAME NAMES DAMMIT! All we ever hear is “We don’t have enough votes” But they never tell you how many votes they do have and who are the holdouts for fear of making enemies with or protect their so called “distinguished colleagues”. Well I have news for you, there’s NOTHING distinguished about being a homophobic bigot who denies others EQUAL RIGHTS. You tell us to call our Senators well then man-up and give us their names. Call them out for what they are Levin, Lieberman, Gilldebrandt, Polis, and windbag Barney Frank who tells us not to get angry and lobby. First off we need their names and ion a way but not telling us that only proves really how wishy-washy you really are. And you my high mucky mucks are just as guilty as they are.

We need a different path, a different plan, a different way to think, act and fight.

We let groups like HRC and Gay Inc. take over, We trusted them and gave them our money and watched them as they become bloated corporations housed in multi-million dollar buildings, whose leaders make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year and throw a damn good party but do little else. Seriously, ask yourself. If the drive, passion, and anger from the 70’s and 80’s carried forward in our hands instead of just handing over money it over to our “professional advocates” at HRC and other Organizations with their failed strategies and plans year after year, decade after decade.,. Might we not be further along in our quest for Equality than we are today? I honestly think that we would be.

It’s now or never kids.. We NEED to take the power back. We need to let our anger and righteous indignation over being treated like second class citizens in AMERICA carry us forth. It’s time to go back to the streets, and to fight. Protest, picket, march, become involved in civil disobedience, we have to take the power away from HRC and Gay Inc. and put it back into our hands, of those who will truly fight.

This is out turning point.

And we need to take control, and fight now more than ever  if we are ever to win out goal.

  1. Okay since you are beating this Johnny Weir thing like a dead horse the answer is NO, I am not happy that he just doesn't throw open the closet doors and officially come out. BUT. My original post wasn't about him being IN or OUT. It was about his routein at the Olymopics being scored low because of percieved sexual orientation. Which is homophobia.

    Do I wish Weir would come out. YES. I also wish that closeted Hollywood stars, prominent figures, politicians, doctors, lawyers and Indian Chiefs would come out and stand up also.

    And bu the way. There is nothing more closted than posting as Anonymous". You are more tham welcome to creat a username and leave comments also.

    I hope this answers your question and puts that dead horse you've been beting to rest.

  2. You perceive I'm a homosexual and rate my comments lower as a result. You are so homophobic.

    Me and Johnny don't have to come out. We gain the plus side of fools supporting our closets selves while never having to take the risk of being honest.

What do you think?
