HRC Spins Like A Whirling Dervish, Makes Mountain Out Of Their Sochi Olympics Molehill

Gay Inc

“Even before the Olympics began, HRC has been holding corporate America’s feet to the fire on their support for Putin’s Olympics. We’ve tracked the coverage that NBC—the network group broadcasting the Olympics—has dedicated to LGBT issues during the Olympic Games. We’ve vigorously called on Olympic sponsors to speak up and condemn Russia’s anti-LGBT laws, and we’ve celebrated those, like AT&T, which have lifted their voices. – From an email blast and money beg sent out by the Human Rights Campaign today.

Of course HRC is not mentioning that they haven’t severed ties with either Coke or Visa who are BOTH corporate sponsors of the Sochi Olympics games and on two separate occasions they were caught serving Coke products at HRC events.

Hollow words and if anyone in the LGBT community believes them. Then they have empty heads.
