Its because an LGBT advocate (well 2 actually) dared to give Ronald Reagans portrait the middle finger last week at the White House LGBT Pride Reception.
The photos were originally published by Philadelphia Magazine and then closet-case Matt Drudge (Yes, Matt Drudge is a big frackin Auntie Tom, closet-case homo) took it and ran with it posting almost a McCarthy-esque headline leading all the other wingnut sites to it.
The right-wing Weekly Standard went to town.
(Matthew) Hart posted his photo on Facebook with the caption, “Fuck Reagan.” [Zoe] Strauss simply posted hers without commentary.
“Yeah, fuck Reagan,” reiterates Hart one week after the reception. “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and queer people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so. Don’t invite me back. I don’t care.”
Matthew Hart. I love you man. Because you are exactly right.
Ronald Reagan was and always should be remembered as the President who helped bring back poverty to the masses, the President who changed American foreign policy, by selling arms to Iran, and forwarding the profits to right-wing Central American dictators to help fund their death squads, and most of all as the President who IS GUILTY of Genocide and Murder against the gay community and is personally responsible for the deaths of thousands who died of AIDS
If the Pinhead Reaganites (Hellraiser joke) are bent out of shape for someone giving The Grim Gipper’s portrait the finger then its a good thing that I wasn’t invited to the Pride reception.
Because I would have pissed on it.
