Needless Press Release of the Day: HRC Denounces Scott Walker Presidential Campaign

In an attempt to remain in the news and relevant now that same-sex marriage is over and they have nothing else actively going on.  The Human Rights Campaign today sent out a press release denouncing Scott Walkers’ 2016 Presedential campaign.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, released the following statement after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign refused to answer a question from a Washington Post columnist about whether Walker “thought children needed to be protected from gay men.” According to the story, Walker’s spokesperson “did not respond.”

HRC’s Director of Policy and Political Affairs JoDee Winterhof released the following statement: “Scott Walker claims to be a new face on the national stage, but he’s introducing himself to a national audience with an outdated and offensive idea. He and his campaign should answer this simple, straightforward question: Does he think we pose a threat to the health and safety of children? Yes or no? His campaign’s attempt to duck this simple question is unworthy of a candidate who is seeking an office that is responsible for representing all Americans – including LGBT people.”

Yesterday, Walker asserted that he supports the Boy Scouts of America (BSA)’s current discriminatory policy that bars gay, lesbian and bisexual adults from serving as employees and troop leaders because it “protected” children.

And here I thought that HRC would def totes endorse Walker.  But with a big enough donation from the right person who knows?

OMFG! – HRC Responds To The Duck Dynasty Fiasco: “We think it’s actually a positive outcome.”

OMG

 

When sucking on lemons try to make it seen like its a new way to drink lemonade so people don’t realize just how badly you you fucked-up and keep giving you money.

Via CNN:

“It’s not really a reversal,” Fred Sainz, a representative of the Human Rights Campaign, told CNN’s Brianna Keilar in a telephone interview on Friday. “We think it’s actually a positive outcome, and we want to thank A&E for their attentiveness and collaboration over the course of the last few weeks.”

Sainz said that his group was “heartened” by A&E’s plans for the public service announcement campaign. A spokesman for A&E declined to comment on whether Robertson or other “Duck Dynasty” cast members would participate in the campaign, but the channel is said to be hopeful that at least some of the cast members will.

“We’ve received assurances also that the Robertson family is now open to working with African-American and (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people to address the real harm that such anti-gay and racist comments can cause,” Sainz said on CNN. “That’s been our ‘ask’ since Phil’s comments ran in GQ, and while it’s a positive step, it certainly cannot and should not be the last one.”

And for anyone out there that doesn’t believe that HRC and GLAAD are walking away from this with some monetary donation from A&E/Disney/Hearst you are just as delusional as HRC.
