Joe Solmonese Elaborates Oh His "The past is the past." Remarks About Ken Mehlman – I Love The Smell Of Bulls@#t In The Morning!

Yesterday I reported on and showed a  video clip of The Human Rights Campaign’s President Joe Solmonese looking oh so bored  on Hardball: With Chris Matthews where he talked about the new (sham) Republican support for Gay Rights and Gay Marriage and also on Roy Cohen wanna be Ken Mehlman who threw open the closet doors after years destroying MILLIONS of LGBT lives during his tenure with the Republican Party.

“Little Joe” stated and I quote:  “The past is the past. We certainly don’t have the luxury at this point in our movement to turn away any offer of help.”  Needless to say the gay blogosphere went ballistic and rightfully so. 

Turns out that someone at the HRC is actually reading the LGBT Blogs now, mosst probably to catch the flying shit and to see which way to spin it next!  And SPIN THEY DID!  (And lamely at that)

“Little Joe” sent a clarification of his remarks on Hardball over to Joe Jervis at Joe. My. God.  (And I must say that I am CRUSHED Joe Solmonese.  I mean I HATE YOU MORE don;t you know that by now?)

Anyway this is what the little Solmonsleaze sent.

“As the community has digested the news of Ken Mehlman’s coming out, I believe it’s important for us to move forward and use this opportunity to expand the circle of Americans supporting marriage equality. Last night on Hardball with Chris Matthews I gave a short answer regarding Ken’s coming out saying, ‘the past is the past.’ While I do believe we have to turn the page at some point, I should have given a more thorough response saying that we cannot forget the past and while many are finding it hard to forgive, our future is far more important.”

Is that the smell of “Bullshit Number 5” I smell wafting off of Joe Solmonese’s $700 designer suit?

Solmonese HRC and other Gay Inc. Orgs that are accepting Mehlman are using the “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” Swamp King excuse.  “Please! This is supposed to be a happy occasion. Let’s not bicker and argue over who killed who.”

Well too bad bitches  And I will keep arguing and bitching until Mehlman is forced back into castle by crowds of homo’s and dykes carrying torchs and pitchforks.  And for those of you Uber Politically Correct homo’s out there who are getting behind Mehlman, remember that you are doing so from under the bus where he threw you.   If Mehlman wants to prove to me that he is sincere, he can crawl across broken glass to every LGBT person who has been victimized and harmed by his past actions and formerly make amends.

  1. Thank you for exposing the HRC to me. I guess at one time I was naive enough to believe all gay organizations had a what's best for gay people mentality.

    As for his apology: "I should have said" crap. Well why the fuck didn't you? Is it not the most obvious thing about his wanting more tops announcement? No, you got on your fucking knees to suck for money.

What do you think?
