FINALLY! - Human Rights Campaign President Chad "Rosa Parks" Griffin Steps Down

Where’s Rosa? – HRC’s Chad Griffin Stumps For Childhood Friend Hillary Clinton in Iowa

Chad Hunter Griffin and HRC

 

If anyone was wondering where HRC’s Chad Hunter Griffin was this weekend while LGBT anti-semitic protests happened at the Creating Change Conference in Chicago and while Washington, DC was getting buried in snow. Griffin just happened top be in Iowa stumping for his ex-boss’s wife Hillary Clinton in Des Moines, Iowa. (Yes! Chad “Rosa Parks” Griffin was a member of Bill Clinton’s White House staff. You mean you didn’t know?)

“She doesn’t just voice her support, or vote her support for our community, she has been our partner in this fight and always willing to go to battle when we need her,” said HRC President Chad Griffin conviently forgetting that she stood side-by-side with her husband after he signed DOMA and DADT into law and then had the nerve to campaign for a second term using that as an accomplishment tenant.

“She has the experience and the determination and the skills that will allow her to make meaningful change from the moment she walks into the Oval Office.”

Griffin who grew up in Hope, Arkansas when introducing the Hillary Clinton to an HRC crowd last year, showed slides of himself as a teenager in Arkansas alongside the state’s first lady, joking that “I’ve known Hillary Clinton for a long time, like a really long time — like a really, really long time.”

So ask yourself honestly. Did Bernie Sanders or Martin O’Malley ever really stand a chance for the HRC endorsement?

If your answers is yes. I have a multi-million dollar, non-profit piece of real estate to sell you in Washington, DC

Hillary Rodham Clinton Calls Out Ben Carson and Ted Cruz At HRC Staffer Speech – Video

HRC meets HRCHillary Rodham Clinton who cancelled last nights Human Rights Campaign Gay-la appearance to appear on Saturday Night Live yesterday morning addressed HRC staff, unpaid interns and volunteers. Clinton urged the assembled activists to resist the temptation to relax after the Obergefell ruling, noting that there are people “literally standing in the courthouse door” in an attempt to thwart LGBT civil rights.  

ABC News:

“Ben Carson says that marriage equality is what caused the fall of the Roman empire,” the Democratic presidential candidate said to laughter during a breakfast at the LGBT rights organization’s annual gathering in Washington, D.C. Clinton then mentioned Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, which drew hisses and boos from the crowd gathered inside the grand ballroom of the Mayflower Hotel, and went on to challenge him to join her at a gay pride parade. “Ted Cruz slammed a political opponent for marching in a pride parade. He clearly has no idea what he’s missing. Pride parades are so much fun. I was marching in them back when I was first lady. You should join sometime Senator, come on,” she said. Both Carson and Cruz have said they believe marriage is between a man and a woman. ABC News has reached out to their campaigns for comment to Clinton’s remarks. “Hillary would have everyone believe she’s been in favor of marriage equality since the fall of the Roman Empire,” Carson campaign spokesman Doug Watts said. “When she’s not lying, she’s spinning!”

Clinton also highlighted her support for the Equality Act, the legislation introduced this spring to ban LGBT discrimination in a variety of areas, including employment, housing, credit, and education. She added that she hoped that some of the people in the room on Saturday morning would be with her when, she said, “I sign it into law.”

In an interesting note.  When HRC President Chad Hunter Griffin introduced Ms. Clinton to the crowd, Clinton said to Hunter. “You know I’ll always be your first HRC”.  What Clinton was referencing is that Griffin worked for Bill Clinton during his time in the White House.  The same time that DADT and DOMA was signed into law.
