Joe Solmonese and The Human Rights Campaign Wastes Time And Money Delivering 150K Signatures To The Mormon Church To Show It’s Actually Doing Sometihing

Joe Solmonese of The Human Rights Campaign flew all the way to Salt Lake City (First Class no doubt) to deliver 150,000 signatures on 800 pages and hold a special Press Conference calling on Boyd K. Packer, president of the Mormon “Quorum of Twelve Apostles  to recant his comments against LGBT people.

Now one would think that after the recent Obama Administration DOJ saying it was going to appeal the ruling that DOMA is unconstitutional, all the crap thats going on with DADT, the fact that EDNA has disappeared, and LGBT Teens committing suicide in record numbers that Solomese and the HRC might, just MIGHT actually be doing something important.  Instead they waste time and money putting on a dog and pony show delivering petitions to the Mormons that they will throw in the trash as soon as they are gone? 

WTF!?  Solmonese  and HRC are operating from the same ridiculous playbook as anyone backed into a corner: Attack an ideology instead of the actual problem. That’s what Scott Brown did in his fundraising attack on Rachel Maddow. It’s what Tony Perkins does in his attack on fighting LGBT bullying. Solmonese and HRC instead of doing anything of actual WORTH and GOD FORBID stand up to President Obama and the Democrats delivers petitions to the Mormons all for the sake of drumming up publicity and a donation.

HRC has no moral compass, and have played a large role in ensuring that Obama appeals DOMA and DADT policies, ENDA sits on the shelf, and are literally helping to set back 40 years.

If you’d like to watch Joe Solmonsleze’s  and the HRC’s Mormon Petition Press Conference here’s the link to YouTube.  I’m not wasting my bandwidth on such bullshit anymore.

Obama Administration Department Of Justice Files Last Minute Appeal To Dedend DOMA in Gill v. Office of Personnel Management

Just mere hours AFTER a Federal Judge ordered The Obama Administration to cease all “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” discharges immediately.  Obama’s Department of Justice will appeal the recent the victory in the recent DOMA Lawsuit that found DOMA discriminatory and would force the government to federally recognize all same sex marriages that have been performed in Massachusetts.

The Department of Justice filed a notice of appeal in the case of Gill v. Office of Personnel Management, the challenge brought by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) to Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Representing seven married same-sex couples and three widowers, GLAD filed Gill in March 2009. The case was heard in May 2010 by U.S. District Court Joseph L. Tauro, who issued a decision finding DOMA Section 3 unconstitutional on July 8, 2010.

We fully expected an appeal and are more than ready to meet it head on,” said Mary L. Bonauto, GLAD’s Civil Rights Project Director. “DOMA brings harm to families like our plaintiffs every day, denying married couples and their children basic protections like health insurance, pensions, and Social Security benefits. We are confident in the strength of our case.

The case is now before the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. The next step will be for the government to file its brief to that court arguing that Judge Tauro’s ruling was wrong. GLAD will then file its brief in opposition to the government, and finally the government will file a reply brief. At that point, the appeal will be scheduled for oral argument. Briefing could be concluded by the spring of 2011 with oral argument to follow by the fall of 2011.

The government also today filed its notice of appeal in the related case Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. Department of Health and Human Services.

Co-counsel in the Gill case are attorneys from the firms Foley Hoag LLP, Sullivan & Worcester LLP, Jenner & Block LLP, and Kator, Parks & Weiser, PLLC.

Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders is New England’s leading legal organization dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation, HIV status, and gender identity and expression

That my readers is out fierce fucking advocate at work.

But hey, just remember what the HRC keeps telling us that the Administration is on our side and we owe this President our gratitude.

Dan Savage Responds To Valarie Jarrett, Brian Bond and The White House Over The Human Rights Campaign National Dinner Speech – "FUCK YOU!"

“”Fuck you, you pack of co-opting cowards. Seriously. You can do a more than offer hope. You have the power to make it better. Right now. Suspend enforcement of DADT. Don’t appeal the decision by a federal judge that declared DADT unconstitutional. Stop defending DOMA in court. Keep your promises. Make it better. And if you’re not going to keep your promises or do what you can to make it better, White House, then you could at least have the simple human decency to shut the fuck up.

State-sanctioned discrimination against LGBT people legitimizes the kind of anti-gay attitudes and beliefs that lead directly to anti-gay bullying at the ballot box and anti-gay bullying in schools. You can do more. Enough with the speeches. Enough with the pretty words—particularly lifted ones. Fuck you.” – Dan Savage, responding to the White House’s posting of an “It Gets Better” message from Brian Bond, Deputy Director of the Office of Public Engagement

Dan’s pissed, I’m pissed and you should be also.  It’s far beyond the time that we take our activism and anger back to the streets and out of HRC and its Corporate Boardroom asskissing ways. 

As it stands now , the White House is just as culpable for these poor teens’ deaths  as the people who bullied them, and also the violence, harassement, and discriminination that we as LGBT adults deal with everyday because they send the message loud and clear that LGBTs are second class citizens whose rights and dignity are forfeit to pretty much any other interest the administration holds.  And the HRC is just as culpable for kissing thier ass and putting thier interests before that of our community as a whole.

It’s about fucking time WE STOOD UP and did something.

The Sheer Audacity Of Valerie Jarrett’s Speech At Last Night’s Human Rights Campaign Annually Held National Dinner – (Transcript & Video)

Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett was the keynote speaker at the HRC’s National Dinner last night between cocktails, entertainment and snobbery.

Not long after Jarrett spoke Brian Bond, Deputy Director of the Office of Public Engagement (aka the WH LGBT liaison who does JACK SHIT) emailed out press releases and  posted Jarrett’s speech, under the  title “It Gets Better” — in an attempt to relate it to Dan Savage’s video campaign of inspiring messages by people to LGBT youth.  (Bonds doing this is so grievously offensive its unimaginable.) And Jarrett’s speech about what the White House has done and is doing for LGBT Equality all the time invoking the names of those  poor young lost lives and what the administration is doing to stop bullying and suicide is just unbelievable.

This is the FIRST public mention of these horrible events made publicly by the White House.  And they choose to talk about it to a group of well heeled donors of their campaign instead of addressing the nation about it as a whole. 

You can read the FULL Transcript after the jump below…..  (And please note there is not one word about ENDA.)

Thank you, Joe, for your kind introduction and your leadership of the Human Rights Campaign. Before I begin, I would like to acknowledge the attendance of a friend of the President’s and an HRC trailblazer. Terry Bean. And I understand that my friends – Governor Tim Kaine, Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and Andy Tobias, the DNC’s Treasurer – are here tonight as well.

There are also several members of our administration with us. I won’t be able to name them all. But I do want to acknowledge OPM Director John Berry. John is transforming our personnel operations to be more professional, inclusive, and to mirror the best practices found in any workplace. And I want to thank Brian Bond from my team at the White House. Brian is a tireless advocate for the LGBT community. Please show Brian a little love. I’m also told there is a strong delegation of fellow Chicagoans in the house.

Finally, I want to thank the staff and many supporters of the Human Rights Campaign. HRC has been a formidable force in the fight for equality. And you’ve been a great partner to President Obama over the past two years during some very tough battles. Together, we’re fighting to build a fairer and freer nation. Together, we’re working toward the day no one in this country is treated like a second class citizen – not by our laws, and not in any community.

That’s why the President asked me to come here tonight, to carry a message on his behalf. Recently, we’ve all been shocked and heartbroken by the deaths of several young people who had been harassed and bullied for being openly gay – or because people thought they were gay. It’s a terrible tragedy. And it has turned a harsh spotlight on an issue that often doesn’t get the public attention it deserves. The struggles of LGBT youth. The enormous pain that too many experience as a result of bullying. And the desperate, tragic decision by some young people who feel that their only recourse is to take their own lives.

I say this not only as an advisor to the President. I say this from my heart, as a mother. I cannot begin to fathom the pain – the terrible grief – of losing a child. There is no greater loss – and we have lost too many in just the past few months. Asher, Billy, Seth, Tyler, Justin. I want to express my deepest condolences to Tammy Aaberg, Justin’s mom, who is here tonight and who I just met backstage. Please join me in recognizing her for the courage she has shown in sharing her son’s story, and honoring his memory – in the hope that no other mothers or fathers will have to know her pain.

We all want to protect our children. We want to be there for our children. And the idea that a young man or woman, in some cases barely teenagers – just at the start of life – would feel so hopeless and tormented as to want to end their lives, it saddens all of us. Young people are our future. They need guidance. They need our support. And this responsibility is far too great to be shouldered by parents alone. Our whole society has to step up and reaffirm our collective obligation to all of our children. This includes the responsibility to instill in young people respect for one another. And we adults should set an example of mutual regard and civility ourselves.

No young person should have to endure a life of relentless taunts and harassment, just because they’re gay. On behalf of President Obama, I want to make clear that this administration is firmly committed to working with you and other advocates. For we all have to ensure that we are creating an environment in our schools, our communities, and our country, that is safe for every person, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Under Secretary Duncan’s leadership, the Department of Education is fundamentally changing the way we look at bullying. And they’re working on how we can do a better job of protecting vulnerable young people.

That’s why, last year, we created a new federal task force on bullying. And just this August they held the first National Bullying Summit, bringing in experts and advocates – including folks from HRC and GLSEN – to begin mapping out a plan to tackle this issue. We are working to replicate proven programs that have helped schools cut down on bullying. We must disprove the myth that bullying is an unavoidable fact of life for young people.

The Department of Education has reinvigorated the Office for Civil Rights to help stop harassment in our schools based on race, disability, sex – and bullying of LGBT young people who may not conform to gender norms.

The Department of Health and Human Services has announced an unprecedented National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. This alliance brings together a wide range of public and private partners. And it’s going to make sure people have access to help, and to resources when they are in crisis. One of its specific goals is preventing suicide in at-risk groups, including LGBT youth.

We must also recognize that creating a safe environment for LGBT youth also means doing more for young people who are forced to leave their homes. For the first time, we have a national strategy to fight homelessness. It specifically addresses the needs of LGBT youth who are living on the streets because they have been ostracized by their families, friends, and community. This includes figuring out whether it’s possible for these children to go home, and if they can’t, that we have safe and nurturing alternatives.

So when it comes to putting a stop to the bullying and harassment of LGBT youth, we are not going to let up. We are going to stand with you. We are going to stand with every single young person in this country who deserves the chance to grow up, learn, have fun, and live their lives without the constant threat of violence, or ridicule. Because although many turn a blind eye, and think that bullying is a harmless rite of passage – words matter. Bullying is simply cruel, abusive, and needs to be stopped. Now. And the work done on the ground by HRC, GLSEN, P-FLAG, the National Youth Advocacy Coalition, the Matthew Shepard Foundation, the Trevor Project and countless others, are crucial to this fight.

The tragic loss of Seth, and Tyler, and Asher, and Billy, and Justin, and countless others whose names we don’t know – strikes at the heart of our values as Americans, and our sense of humanity. We all have an obligation to engage in the broader struggle to build a more perfect union – a nation where each of us is free to pursue our own version of happiness.

And building that more perfect union means fighting discrimination in all its forms – whether in our schools, or in the workplace, on our streets, or in our moments of greatest need. I was so proud when the President signed a directive to make sure that hospitals participating in Medicare or Medicaid – most hospitals – allow gay and lesbian partners the same visitation rights as straight partners. And we’ve made clear that, under the Family and Medical Leave Act, LGBT families are entitled to the same rights as anyone else to take leave in order to care for children.

Building a more perfect union means making sure no one ever is afraid to walk down the street holding the hand of the person he or she loves. And after a long and tough fight, with Judy Shepard at his side, President Obama marked the passage of the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act. It’s good to see Judy here this evening, and I want to acknowledge her for the incredible perseverance she’s shown on behalf of Matthew and his legacy.

Building a more perfect union means standing against anyone trying to write inequality into our laws and our Constitution – and repealing divisive and discriminatory laws like DOMA. And it means ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell once and for all. This is a promise the President has made in no uncertain terms. For the first time in history, the Secretary of Defense has testified in favor of ending this policy. For the first time in history, we have a Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who has argued forcefully for allowing gay men and women to serve their country without having to subvert their integrity. And for the first time in history, the House of Representatives has passed repeal. Now we’ve got to keep pushing the Senate to do the right thing and get this done.

But, as you know, building a more perfect union is not just about our laws. It’s about engendering a society where we embrace one another’s differences. And while we have made progress, we all know that these tragedies brought on by bullying do not reflect who we are as a nation. They are a painful reminder of the work we still have to do. That we must feel the fierce urgency to step up now.

We have to keep fighting together. We must not lose hope. We cannot allow people to sow division among us – not when the stakes are so high for our country.

After all, as President Obama said when he spoke here last year, the people in this room are a testament to the progress we have already made as a nation. You are a testament to the capacity of our American ideals to help us overcome old prejudices. To allow us to see in each other, our common humanity. In short, you are living proof of what has become a powerful message in recent days. Simply put: “It gets better.”

And what is clear is that this depends on all of us. It depends on changing laws, and changing hearts. It depends on creating an environment in which our children feel safe to be themselves. And it depends on reaching all of our young people, and letting them know that we care about them, and that want them to thrive and reach for their dreams, without fear.

That’s exactly what President Obama said when he spoke to children across this country at the start of this school year.

“[L]ife is precious, and part of its beauty lies in its diversity,” he said. “We shouldn’t be embarrassed by the things that make us different. We should be proud of them. Because it’s the things that make us different, that make us who we are. And the strength and character of this country have always come from our ability to recognize ourselves in one another.”

It is this character of our country that drives the Human Rights Campaign. It’s what drives President Obama. And it is this strength and character that gives us hope. That we will build that more perfect union. That there is a brighter future ahead for us all, and especially for our children.

Thank you.

Andrew Sullivan Calls For HRC President Joe Solmonese To Resign. We Finally Agree On Something – JOE MUST GO!

That blustery, affectatious, ex-republican bear known as Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic is calling for Joe Solmonese, The Human Rights Campaign President to step down if DADT is not repealed within Obama’s first term.  Now I agree with Andrew, but I know that doesn’t shock any regular Back2Stonewall.com readers.  But I think Joe Solmonese should not be given two more years (Or as Joe probably thinks of it $700k in salary)  I believe that Joe Solmonese should resign NOW!

Think about, all we’ve heard from Solmonese and the HRC is that their way of doing things works. Lobbying and being in really tight with the lawmakers. Cocktail parties and smoozefests fundraisers. They have a Congress that is  Democratic. They have a  majority in the house and Senate and yet HRC for all their supposed clout in DC couldn’t help get a bill passed, or for that fact energize their good friend Barack to even push it,  that over 85% of the U.S. wants.

That should be the last nail in their coffin and Joe’s pink slip because it truly indicates that within their own field of expertise they have failed and are utterly useless.And lets not forget that, they have opposed every single court case at first (until they win) that has ended up getting us any forward movement to our rights, including the recent Prop 8 ruling and the recent DADT case.

Solmonese needs to be fired.  And HRC if they still want to exist needs a new strategy.  Nothing less will do.

Now repeat after me:   JOE MUST GO!     JOE MUST GO!     JOE MUST GO!    

Follow-Up and Reactions To My Symbolism vs. Substance Cincinnati CityBeat Article – Ken Smith, Chris Henry, and Mary Armour

Last week I wrote a freelance article for Cincinnati’s CityBeat newspaper titled Symbolism vs. Substance on Gay Rights which explored what happened to a group of grassroots activist in Cincinnati in early 2009 when they tried to push for a Domestic Registry and were stopped not by the city council who were on board or the crazy religious organizations in the area but they were stopped Cincinnati’s own recognized gay rights group Equality Cincinnati. 

Well alot can happen in a week both good and bad.  The good is that my article received the most hits for the week on the CityBeat website.  The bad.  People who agreed with my article have suffered ramifications by EC supporters and I myself have been the victim of of a form of harassement.

Now before I start I want to make this clear.  The article I wrote for CityBeat was a freelance writing assignment and I finished my assignment.  I did my research, I contacted all involved and gave everyone plenty of time to contact me one on one and respond and many on the EC/HRC side didn’t  Instead they wanted a group meeting to explain so “we all could be on the same page” which I denied because I did not want to get into a situation where I could be bullied.

Since the article has come out there are many who agree with it and of course those involved with Equality Cincinnati and The Cincinnati HRC group doesn’t.  If you go to the CityBeat page you will see that Ken Smith (his real name) posted about his negative experiences with HRC and EC..

But what shocked me was what happened  next to Ken Smith and his partner Chris Henry who have long been involved in Cincinnati’s LGBT Community working on LGBT related causes and fundraisers for LGBT friendly politicians. And at one time both Ken and Chris were members of HRC Cincinnati but dropped out and decided to longer be associated with them.

Ken and Chris were recently contacted by the Jim Tarbell campaign, (Tarbell is running for Hamilton County City Commissioner)   about putting a fundraising event together. Ken and Chris started working on the even and joining them was Mary Armour who donated her residence for the event and joined the hosting committee for “Tarbellfest”

One day after Ken commented on my article at CityBeat he and Chris received the following email:

Despite her assertion  Mary obviously only believes in Free Speech, except when it’s not against her friends at HRC and EC and you are NOT ALLOWED to have a different opinion.  I find this totally outrageous especially since Ken and Chris were the people originally contacted about the fundraiser and it’s not even a specific LGBT, EC, or HRC event.

There really were so many things that I didn’t mention in my original article to make it stay objective and not seem like I was out to get EC, HRC, or as they should be called “The A List Gays”  here.  Like the general feeling of disenfranchisement that the LGBT Community feels from them,   Their lack of availability, visibility, transparency, and  their elitism and control issues  But when situations like this occur just because someone has a different opinion of their group and speaks out  I do find that totally unacceptable,  incredibly obnoxious, and yes, elitist and controlling and this all just helps to prove what many in the LGBT Community in Cincinnati feel..

Julianne Moore Stars In The Human Rights Campaign New York Marriage Equlaity Ads – PSA Or Fundraising Attempt? (Video)

Julianne Moore is the first to appear in a new set of HRC ads intended to lobby public support for the issue called The Campaign for New York Marriage.  The ads will begin making a direct appeal to ordinary voters in a series of commercials featuring Hollywood actors, fashion designers and civic leaders including Moore, The Reverand Al Sharpton,  Kevin Bacon, Whoopi Goldberg, Fran Drescher, Tom Colicchio, the chef, and Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, the widow of Arthur Ashe.

The ads are the work of Brian Ellner, of the Human Rights Campaign a former Bloomberg administration official and a one-time Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president

“The timing of commercials is deliberate, and revealing: With the front-runner in the governor’s race, Andrew M. Cuomo, the Democratic attorney general, pledging his support for same-sex marriage, and the Legislature in Democratic hands, advocates are pushing for a new vote early next year. ‘We want to build excitement and momentum in advance of that,’ said Ellner…As part of that strategy, the Human Rights Campaign and its allies are spending heavily to oust three New York state senators — all Democrats — who voted against the marriage bill last year and who face opponents in the primary on Tuesday: William Stachowski of Buffalo, Shirley L. Huntley of Queens and Rubén Díaz Sr. of the Bronx.” – The New York Times

Now personally,  I love Julianne Moore and I applaud her and the others New York notables for making these ads. But after viewing the first one its very lo, and very lackluster.   The words “gay and lesbian” are never used nor are there any pictures of couples (gay or straight) in the ad.   One of the biggest mistakes that  “No on 8” made in California was not featuring happy gay families (as Maine’s almost and Washington’s successful campaigns did). Showing the voters who we are actually does make a big difference. 

Also the ad doesn’t touch on the problems both legal and financial that lesbian and gay couples face because of marriage inequality, and strangely calls for no direct action such as calling the New York State Senate or voting for pro LGBT rights candidates.

But leave it to HRC the one thin that the ad DOES contain which is the last two words.  “Please donate”

"Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" Ruling Reactions: The Good, The Bad, and the BIZARRE!

Here’s a  look at the reactions that are coming in to yesterdays ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Virginia A. Phillips that #DADT is indeed Unconstitutional.

American Foundation for Equal Rights “Today’s court decision declaring “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” unconstitutional is yet another significant and long-overdue step toward full equality for all Americans. Along with the recent federal court decisions on DOMA and Proposition 8, it is clear that our nation is moving toward the day when every American will be treated equally under the law, as is required by our Constitution.”

Stonewall Democrats
“Today’s Federal court decision calling the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy unconstitutional on grounds that it violates gay military members’ rights to free speech, due process and open association is another nail in the coffin of the policy.” Mitchell continued, “We’re glad that the Federal court agrees with President Obama’s position: that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell needs to come to an end. Our Senators need to hear from their constituents demanding repeal. We also call on Senate Republicans to rise above the obstructionism they’ve been playing at for months and let a vote happen on what the vast majority of Americans want: repeal of DADT.”

Servicemembers Legal Defense Network
We’re pleased by the judge’s decision, but this decision is likely to be appealed and will linger for years. Congress made the DADT law 17 years ago and Congress should repeal it. The Senate will have the opportunity to do just that this month and most Americans think the Senate should seize it.”

Human Rights Campaign
I’m not posting tthe HRC’s response because I no longer recognize them as a true LGBT Rights Organization and I really don;t give a fuck what thopse posers have to say.

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (aka Princess Tiny Meat)
“It is hard to believe that a District Court level judge in California knows more about what impacts military readiness than the service chiefs who are all on the record saying the law on homosexuality in the military should not be changed. Once again, homosexual activists have found a judicial activist who will aid in the advancement of their agenda. This is a decision for Congress that should be based upon the input of the men and women who serve and those who lead them.”
 B. Daniel Blatt: Gay Patriot Blogger, GOProud member and all around asshole
“Here we go again. While I believe DADT should have been overturned years ago, I don’t believe it is a court’s role to determine military policy. Let’s just have Congress overturn this law to avoid a prolonged legal battle. [snip] From a quick scan of the opinion, my sense is the judge relies less on the actual text of the constitution and more on twisting past rulings to yield the result she wants.”

Joe Solmonese Elaborates Oh His "The past is the past." Remarks About Ken Mehlman – I Love The Smell Of Bulls@#t In The Morning!

Yesterday I reported on and showed a  video clip of The Human Rights Campaign’s President Joe Solmonese looking oh so bored  on Hardball: With Chris Matthews where he talked about the new (sham) Republican support for Gay Rights and Gay Marriage and also on Roy Cohen wanna be Ken Mehlman who threw open the closet doors after years destroying MILLIONS of LGBT lives during his tenure with the Republican Party.

“Little Joe” stated and I quote:  “The past is the past. We certainly don’t have the luxury at this point in our movement to turn away any offer of help.”  Needless to say the gay blogosphere went ballistic and rightfully so. 

Turns out that someone at the HRC is actually reading the LGBT Blogs now, mosst probably to catch the flying shit and to see which way to spin it next!  And SPIN THEY DID!  (And lamely at that)

“Little Joe” sent a clarification of his remarks on Hardball over to Joe Jervis at Joe. My. God.  (And I must say that I am CRUSHED Joe Solmonese.  I mean I HATE YOU MORE don;t you know that by now?)

Anyway this is what the little Solmonsleaze sent.

“As the community has digested the news of Ken Mehlman’s coming out, I believe it’s important for us to move forward and use this opportunity to expand the circle of Americans supporting marriage equality. Last night on Hardball with Chris Matthews I gave a short answer regarding Ken’s coming out saying, ‘the past is the past.’ While I do believe we have to turn the page at some point, I should have given a more thorough response saying that we cannot forget the past and while many are finding it hard to forgive, our future is far more important.”

Is that the smell of “Bullshit Number 5” I smell wafting off of Joe Solmonese’s $700 designer suit?

Solmonese HRC and other Gay Inc. Orgs that are accepting Mehlman are using the “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” Swamp King excuse.  “Please! This is supposed to be a happy occasion. Let’s not bicker and argue over who killed who.”

Well too bad bitches  And I will keep arguing and bitching until Mehlman is forced back into castle by crowds of homo’s and dykes carrying torchs and pitchforks.  And for those of you Uber Politically Correct homo’s out there who are getting behind Mehlman, remember that you are doing so from under the bus where he threw you.   If Mehlman wants to prove to me that he is sincere, he can crawl across broken glass to every LGBT person who has been victimized and harmed by his past actions and formerly make amends.

Watch Joe Solmonese and The Human Rights Campaign Embrace Ken Mehlman and The Republicans (Video)

Joe Solmonsleaze Solmonese appeared on “Hardball With Chris Matthews” last night where he actually embraced the sham that’s happening of Republicans now beginning to say that they favor gay marriage and gay rights.

Now I have said A LOT about both Solmonese and the Human Rights Campaign in the past but I’ve never called them “idiotic greedy morons” until now.  (Well maybe I have, but for good reason)

The year’s and most probably decades premiere closet case comes out.  A man who did more to destroy gay rights then probably Ronald Regan and what does the nation’s “premiere gay civil rights organization” says what…that he’s welcomed at the table!

Here is what Solmonsleaze had to say.  “The past is the past. We certainly don’t have the luxury at this point in our movement to turn away any offer of help.”  (And knowing Solmonsleaze and the HRC by help he means MONEY.)

Perhaps Little Joe and the HRC needs a refresher course on what Mehlman who is the Roy Cohen of our generation actually did to harm MILLIONS of LGBT people in the United States. 

And to actually believe that the so called “change” happening within the Republican Party tn favor of LGBT rights and gay marriage  is REAL and not just an attempt at the Republicans aimed at getting a few independent votes when the midterm elections are held in about nine weeks is just mind blowing.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  SOLMONESE MUST GO and the HRC must either be overhauled DRAMATICALLY or REPLACED with another LGBT Rights Organization that reality based instead of money based/

It kind of figures though that the MOST HATED Gay Leader and Organization  in the LGBT Community would stand up for and embrace one of the MOST HATED men  in politics who caused us so much harm to us..
