Adding Insult To Injury HRC Makes Goldman Sachs CEO First Spokesman For “Businesses For Equality”

If it wasn’t bad enough that clueless Human Rights Campaign honored Goldman Sachs the investment bank who deceived investors and Congress about its bets against the subprime mortgage market and helped plunge this nation into its current financial crisis, at  $650 a plate NYC Gala at the Waldorf Astoria this past weekend with a “Corporate Equality Awards”.  HRC has gone one step further proving its cluelessness and its disconnect from its base by having Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein to be its first national corporate spokesman for same-sex marriage.

Honoring Goldman Sachs and using Blankfein just proves the further disconnect between the HRC and the LGBT Community and PROVES that HRC is nothing more than a business itself and has absolutely NO INTEGRITY.

Goldman Sachs is the top contributor and explicitly supports Mitt Romney, the likely Republican nominee, who stands firmly opposed to civil rights equality for the GLBT community, in particular, gay marriage and using Blanlfein as a spokesman who is a known perjurer who by all rights should be in jail  for lying before the Levin Committee about Goldman Sachs misleading clients securities so the firm would benefit if they fell in value thus helping lead this country to the brink of financial collapse just proves how out of touch and just how much contempt that the HRC has for the non-elite LGBT community.

When the institutions that can cause an international economic collapse are now on your side, and your prganizarions use them to represent you, I guess you know you’re finally mainstream

HRC is a business, nothing more, nothing less and is more concerned with money than Equality, Dignity and Integrity and should be shunned, boycotted, and protested for that reason alone.
