HRC’s Chad “Rosa Parks” Griffin: Boycott Brunei’s Hotels.

Chad Griffin

“There are a number of hotels and venues in the Los Angeles area that aren’t owned by foreign leaders and governments that allow for the execution of its LGBT citizens. We’re encouraging members of the LGBT community and our allies to consider those options instead of the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air––which are part of the Sultan’s Dorchester Collection. In addition, we’re calling on organizations that have upcoming events scheduled at these hotels to move them to other locations. I have attended various events at both hotels over the past several years. But given the extreme nature of these developments, I feel strongly that we in the LGBT community and our allies should take our business elsewhere.” Joe Solmonese Chad Griffin, head of the Human Rights Campaign.

“I feel strongly that we in the LGBT community and our allies should take our business elsewhere.”

Thank you, Captain Fucking Obvious.  And while we are at it why don’t we boycott the smarmy, ass-kissing, narcissistic, over-paid, ego-maniacs of HRC.

Oh wait.  That would be you.

  1. I use to donate to the HRC all the time plus I had them in my will. Then I found out what the top 20 people were paid. NO ONE should be paid that much to run a charity, NO ONE!!!…each of the top three were making more then the president of the USA for god sake plus plus so many different bonuses I can’t figure how the charity makes money for the people that really need it. They all better be working 24/7 with no time for sleeping for that kind of cash. Just another money making DC scam organization. Really sick. AND SAD.

What do you think?
