Kansas Republican Gov. Sam Brownback rescinded an executive order Tuesday issued during the Sebelius administration that offered protections to state employees based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat, signed the order in 2007 prohibiting most state employees from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
Brownback issued a new executive order cancelling Sebelius’ order.
“This Executive Order ensures that state employees enjoy the same civil rights as all Kansans without creating additional ‘protected classes’ as the previous order did,” Brownback said in a statement.
“Any such expansion of ‘protected classes’ should be done by the legislature and not through unilateral action. The order also reaffirms our commitment to hiring, mentoring and recognizing veterans and individuals with disabilities.”
A protest has been set for noon Saturday on the south lawn of the Capitol, hoping to send a message that Kansans “won’t tolerate this intolerance,” said Equality House member Davis Hammet
shirtback in the past when he was a Senator voted NO on adding sexual orientation to the definition of hate crimes and has fought tooth and nail against hate crimes legislation saying “This is something we have got to fight against, that somehow that the thought is what the crime is, and that being moved into an agenda not allowing people to speak their beliefs about homosexuality.”
Last Thursday Jon Stewart of the Daily Show ripped apart Glenn Becks “I Have A Scheme Rally” and the absolute balls of Beck to “restore honor” to the republic on the same day and in the same place as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did exactly 47 years ago. Which Beck said that he didn’t realize, (Yeah, right.)
The biggest lie though from this grifter is that the fine print that was loacted on his Rally site about the donations that people pledged to help the soilders of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) actually was going to fund the rally.BECK RAISED OVER SIX MILLION DOLLARS IN DONATIONS and it seems that only 10 percent of that ($600,000.00) will actually go to the tax exempt chartity that people donated for. Just like Sean Hannitys’ “help the troops” charity. After the first class airfare and luxury hotel suites and first class meals are paid for and all the overhead is reimbursed then whatever is left over will go to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation in the end. I wonder how many of his lemmings realize that the money they donated to charity actually went to paying for Sarah Palin’s luxury suite?
And please note that the address to mail donations is Mercury Radio Arts which is Glenn Beck’s multi-media production company.
How honorable is that?
Egomaniac, Dishonest, Lair, Crazy, Dangerous, and Greedy. That is Glenn Beck in a nutshell
CLICK HERE TO WATCH Beck cry yesterday because he was so happy and thankful that he didn’t have to donate any of the tens of millions of dollars he has made over the last few years to pay for this gigantic ego stroke, cover his ample ass and spew some hysterical religious bullshit below.
