Lt. Dan Choi Calls Obama’s Hospital Visitation Rights Directive "Crumbs" and "Token Gestures"

“Last week’s hospital visitation directive is a welcome, but small step. Long gone are the days when will we accept crumbs and politely smile as if we were served the entire meal. We are tired of waiting. We are tired of seeing our money and our support go to politicians who promise us everything yet give us only small token gestures in return. We will continue confronting our elected officials, including President Obama, with direct action demanding that they fulfill their campaign promises to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ and pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.”  – Lt. Dan Choi, in a GetEQUAL press release promising more actions against the Obama administration.

FINALLY someone had the fuys to say it. 

Will someone make Choi head of the HRC already.
