Henry Rollins SLAMS Boehner And The GOP Over Defending DOMA

Outspoken Black Flag frontman,singer-songwriter, spoken word artist, writer, publisher, actor, and radio DJ Henry Rollins has some serious issues with the GOP and especially John Boehner on the fact that they are standing up to defend DOMA.

Rollins in a recent Vanity Fair article:

[Obama] says his administration will no longer defend DOMA in court. Being happy about that would be like rejoicing that doctors are no longer applying leeches to patient’s faces when they complain of nasal congestion. It’s not a bad thing, though, and about damn time.

In to save the day, to keep those damn gays in their place, is House Speaker John Boehner, who will put himself and his sterling reputation on the line to stand against the president, his insurgent gay terrorist pals, and their dreams of marriage and equal protection under the law. That’s a relief.

When things threaten to become too constitutional, thankfully, there’s someone like John Boehner, owner of every third tear cried in America, to step in and attempt to push America back into the good old days of darkness. Rather than shoulder the awesome burden of creating some damned jobs in America, he goes for the easy cheap shot of going after gay Americans. Again

Love him or hate him, (WE LOVE HIM!) Rollins speaks the truth and puts it bluntly which is what needs to happen and something EVERYONE must do at EVERY opportunity if our rights are ever to advance. 

As for John BONER perhaps you should rethink your position because if you think you cry now.  Imagine how you’ll cry when Henry Rollins comes after you.
