LGBT Blogger Pam Spaulding Bravely Stands Up and Speaks Out Against North Carolina’s Bigoted Anti Same Sex Union Admendment

LGBT blogger Pam Spaulding from Pam’s House Blend over at Fire Dog Lake took to the steps of “Duke and Durham: Love=Love Candlelight Vigil.” last night to let her feelings be know about the North Carolina’s legislature attepting to pass a constitutional amendment that would ask voters to ban marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships and other same sex relationship recognition on the May 2012 ballot.

Pam, a North Carolina native joined over 300 others at the vigil which was a somber affair.  But Spaulding would not let her feelings be reigned in and spoke passionately, truthfully and from the heart.

Pam Spaulding start speaking about 1:00 mark
Whats happening in North Carolina and across America to the LGBT Community thanks to the Republican party is a heinous injustice.  And in my opinion “vigils” are to mourn.  I applaud Pam for standing up and speaking out.  We must stop lamenting and start lambasting.  The time for vigils is over.  We must take to the streets and stand tall and speak out.  What they, the Republicans and the homophobic bigots out there are doing to us is just plain wrong. 

The time for lighting candles and waxing poetic is over.  It’s time to take to the streets and FIGHT.

Joe Mirabella’s Argument Against Closing The "GAY ATM" Crashes, Burns And Get’s Put In The Trash Where It Belongs

Joe Mirabella is a Bilerico Project Contributor, blogs at Huffington Post and SeattlePI.com. He is co-host of the popular weekly political podcast “Same Sex Sunday. 

Yesterday Pam Spaulding over at Pam’s House Blend  gave him a platform to post his piece Don’t Close the gAyTM” (which you can read in full by clicking on the title and also over at Bilerico) in which Mirabella says that now is not the time to withhold money from the DNC being that we are “are too close to our goals to allow the Conservatives to take over”. 

Mirabella must be smoking some MIGHTY WACKY WEED ro believe that we are close to our goals and that the Democrats have done so much.

But the best part of this post was a comment left by John Vissar which will post here in it’s entirity because it is so true, inspiration and outlines exactly why we SHOULD indeed close the GAY ATM.

This is also outrageous and offensive to everyone who supports civil rights period. Is Mirabella suggesting that only those who have money deserve civil rights? I don’t know how he and his family are faring in this recession, but a lot of us queers are hurting. WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN FEEDING OUR KIDS AND BUYING OUR RIGHTS. END OF DEBATE. Go back to being out of touch with the very lgbt community you claim to speak for.

Here’s another factoid that the Democratic Party operatives don’t want you to know: just because you give money to a “fair-minded” politician doesn’t mean they will support you after the election. An example: look no further than Barack HomophObama.

He ran on an antiwar platform… and he’s now presiding over two failed wars and an escalation in Pakistan. 30% of the casualties of nine-year Afghan War have taken place in during Obama’s 1 1/2 year presidency.

We voted for Obama because we wanted to defend a woman’s right to choose. Instead we got the Stupak Amendment and an executive order from Obama barring the use of federal funds for abortion (overkill given the Hyde Amendment).

We voted for Obama because we wanted more union rights. Instead, EFCA and ENDA are dead.

We voted for Obama to close Guantanamo Bay. It’s still open and they’re still down there torturing innocent people.

We voted for Obama to break from the so-called Republican love-affair with Big Oil. Instead, Obama fiddles while BP burns the Gulf.

We voted for Obama to end the dominance of Wall Street. Instead, we’ve witnessed the largest transfer of wealth in human history, from your wallet and dinner table to the wealthiest people in the world who caused the current economic crisis and wrote the financial “reform” laws now before Congress.

We voted for Obama to stop the foreclosure crisis. Banks got their reward, while millions, including a disproportionate number of African-Americans, are now threatened with homelessness.

It cost lgbt activists nothing to have homosexuality removed from the DSM. Why does it cost me $300 million to pass a law saying lgbt people shouldn’t be fired for being lgbt?

There was a time when any hack could stand up and say “Vote for the Democrats!” and we would all blindly obey. Thank God that time is over.

We have a choice: to follow the lead of people like Joe Mirabella or we can follow the lead of people like Harvey Mllk. Harvey told us “It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.”

Which side are you on?


And i totally agree 100 percent that Mirabella’s article/post is outrageous, offensive, and insulting to anyone who supports civil rights.   Vassar says it all and sums it up in a nutshell quite nicely.  And I for one will NOT follow Mirabella and give one red cent to the DNC.  I hope that you’ll follow suit. 

Not ONE RED CENT or ONE PENNY to the DNC does for us what they promise and claim to support

There are a multitude of pro-LGBT political organizations and candidates that we can give our money to rather than the DNC. And that’s what we all should do.

No money AT ALL to the DNC (party), the DSCC (Senate campaign), the DCCC (House campaign) or OFA (Obama’s operation).
