Michelle Obama Draws In Crowd Of Over 7,000 In Cincinnati. Romney Event Brings In 45.

First Lady Michelle Obama drew in a crowd of over 7,000 supporters at Cincinnati’s Duke Energy Center despite the grey and drizzly weather.  The First Lady visited Cincinnati  and  rallied the crowd to get out and vote early and to prepare for a hard-fought campaign as she helped kicked off Ohio’s month of early voting.

Said the First Lady:

“There going to be plenty of ups and down for the rest of the way, you can count on that…I want you to remember that what we do for the next 35 days will make the difference between waking up on November 7 and wondering ‘Could I have done more?’ or feeling the promise of four more years.

Are we going to turn around and go back to the same policies that got us into  that hole in the first place, are we going to sit back and watch everything that  we fought for and worked for to just slip away, or are we going to keep this  country moving forward,”

An  early voting event for Mitt Romney on the sane day in downtown Cincinnati drewin  roughly 45  supporters. *SNORT*

As goes Ohio, so goes the nation.

Cincinnati Police Arrest Suspect In Murder of Trangender Victim Kendall Hampton

The Cincinnati Police Department’s Homicide Unit and the Cincinnati Police Fugitive Apprehension Unit have arrested and charged Eugene Carlos Dukes,19, of killing of  Kendall L. Hampton, a transgender-nonconforming person who had “reportedly” had been involved in sex work.

Kendall Hampton’s body was discovered on On August 18th in the parking lot of a Cincinnati convenience store last Saturday, reported Fox 19. She was pronounced dead later that night at the city’s University Hospital. .

Cincinnati Police Department’s homicide unit continues their investigation into the murder but has not ruled Kendall’s murder a hate crime.  But The Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization is calling the murder a hate crime and believes the victim was targeted because of the shooter’s perception of Hampton’s gender identity and expression. “We at BRAVO believe that this incident underscores the importance for renewed discussion and action on hate crime against the LGBT communities,” said Gloria McCauley, executive director of BRAVO. In 2011, BRAVO documented over 111 reported incidents of anti-LGBT hate crime in Ohio.

Local news stations in Cincinnati have reported Kendall’s murder  posted with many problems including, referring to the victim as a “man” and using the pronoun, “he.” And with some stations tried to scrub all mention of sexuality from the report, while other Cincinnati news outlets sensationalized it in a negative way.

Over 3000+ Attend Downtown Cincinnati Gay Pride Celebration Despite Hysterical Warnings By Ohio’s Biggest Anti-Gay Hate Group

Cincinnati Pride 2010 which for the first time in 8 years moved back to Fountain Square in Downtown Cincinnati was a rousing success drawing an estimated 3,000 people who came to celebrate freedom and independence, for their country and their lifestyle despite attacks from Phil Burress, a self-described former porn addict turned Christian fundamentalist crusader against pornography and the “gay agenda,” and Ohio’s largest anti-gay “christian” group The Citizens for Community Values which has EXTREMELY close ties to James Dobson’s Foucus on the Family  and officially recognized “hate group” by the Southern Law Poverty Center The Family Research Association which is led by extreme homophobe Tony Perkins.

In the days perceding Cincinnati Pride Burress, President of Citizens for Community Values, issued an hysterical “action alert,” warning his membership of the danger of “homosexual activists” taking to the streets of downtown Cincinnati with their “deviant behavior” in a sinful celebration of “sexual appetite.” (in which of course he pleaded for donations to fight the “gay scourge”) and . during an interview with a local paper, he warned families planning to visit downtown Cincinnati on the 4th, to be on the lookout for gay parade attendees having sexual intercourse out in the open ont the street and topless lesbian women!  (If only!)

Phil Burress has been peddling gay hate since the 90s, with an obsessive fervor that only a former porn addict can muster. In 1993, Burress launched a successful campaign to overturn Cincinnati’s anti-discrimination protections for sexual orientation. And Burress and his group was at the forefront of helping draft and push Ohio’s 2004 amendment banning gay marriage which is one of the worst in the country and which not only bans gay marriage but also bans any type of “marriage rights and benefits” to also any couple gay or straight who enter into a domestic partnership or civil union.

But fortunately there are some REAL human beings in Cincinnati also.

Katie Ambrogi, 31, of Blue Ash watched the 40-minute parade with her husband and three children.  “We just like equality for everybody. Let the kids see that there are differences. People are the same,” Ambrogi said. How did the kids respond to seeing men in huge hair, high heels and flamboyant dresses or the shirtless elves on a Christmas float in 90-degree temperature with an elf singing “Walking in a Winter Wonderland”?  “They’re beautiful people and kids should see that,” Ambrogi said with a smile.

Thank you Katie!

Thnaks to you your children might be the last chance that Cincinnati, Ohio ever has to coming into the twenty first century and leaving Mr. Buress and the CCV back in 1943 Nazi Germany where they belong
