“I want to thank Speaker Boehner and the House Republican leadership for taking action to defend this critical law that was enacted by a bipartisan majority in Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton. It is unfortunate that President Obama decided to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act. While much of the debate in Washington is focused on creating jobs and growing our economy, we should not sit by while this administration makes profound and regrettable decisions based more upon the politics of the day than the words of our Founding Fathers. This law protects one of our most sacred institutions and because of the House’s actions today, it will be defended.”
Senator Marco Antonio Rubio the junior GOP/Tea PartyUnited States Senator from Florida, who also just happens to be son and third child of Cuban exiles who came to America for individual rights and freedom. Has the nerve and gall to defend DOMA and stand against LGBT Equality.
This just goes to prove that Homophobia, hypocrisy and stupidity comes in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
The NAACP has banded together with Think Progress, Media Matters for America and New Left Media to form a “tea party tracker” intent on monitoring “racism and other forms of extremism” within the tea party movement.
Hilary Shelton, director of the NAACP’s Washington bureau, said the project was started because NAACP leaders kept hearing from its members that they were seeing racist signs, T-shirts and commentary coming from the tea party movement. “The site is set up to be utilized as a tool to track activities as they come up,”
The site, which features a blog, a breaking-news section and the tagline which reads “a watched pot never boils.” (LOVE IT!)
So far the tracker site has posted links related to Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally last weekend, including a picture of a man wearing a T-shirt that reads: “Blacks own Slaves in Mauritania, Sudan, Niger and Haiti.” The Tracker has also posted a slideshow of photos of offensive signs displayed at tea party rallies.
