Actor Alan Cummings Goes After Barack Obama On Gay Rights Issues "‘You’ve done diddly squat"

Scottish born and openly “bisexual” actor Alan Cummings who became a a naturalised American citizen just days after Barack Obama took office has always been a storng supportter of the President……until now.

Cummings, who has been a Democratic Party supporter revealed the extent of his disillusionment in a strongly worded statement to Barack Obama and accused him of doing “diddly squat” to improve gay right

We keep hearing that Obama is an ally, that ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ will end under his watch, but what do we actually get?  Diddly squat thus far on a federal level, and in addition to that some very offensive statements that would have made the Republicans look bad.

When America is full of hatred of all kinds, but especially hatred towards young gay people, what message is the President sending when he repeatedly goes out of his way to spread the message that the gay population is not worthy of the respect that everyone else is?

How can we counsel our children not to bully their gay classmates or mock their gay friends when they see their President, their beloved President Obama, refusing to do the equivalent in regards to troops and other adults?”

Well done Alan Cummings.  Now if only MORE celebrities would stabd up come out with statements.  George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Robert Downey Jr, Matt Damon, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and the rest of you.  WE ARE WAITING.
