Joe Solmonese of The Human Rights Campaign: A Legend In His Own Mind

A lot can be said for HRC’s MASSIVE fail in the fight for our civil rights. EDNA is postponed indefinately, the DADT Repeal has turned into a MASSIVE clusterfucker, and don’t even mention DOMA.  Then there’s HRC’s backroom deals, the massive lack of transparency, the current administration ass kissing and the “we hate to bother you but when you have time can we PLEASE become first class citizens when you have a chance?  No rush, we get paid alot of money so we can wait” outlook that has probably SET US BACK 10 years in our fight and has caused us to miss the best possibility to push our agenda through .

But just when you think you have seen HRC at its worst…….it gets even scumier!

Despite all the fuckups and all the mishandling of our movement they have the unmitigated gall to have yet ANOTHER fundraiser – The Human Rights Campaign’s Feb. 27 Carolinas gala in Raleigh, NC. And HRC President Joe Solmonese (of the $350k a year salary and $700.00 suits) has the NERVE to bill himself as a SPECIAL GUEST and bills himself as “creating successful initiatives to advance our vision of equality both in the Legislature and Congress”?  Have I missed something?  Has the HRC and Solmon-sleaze actually done something othert than fuck us up and we’ve become first class citizens FINALLY?  Maybe I was absent that day.  Or maybe its just more of HRC’s BULLSHIT and Solmon-sleaze’s megamanical ego.

Since HRC started they have wasted $550 million dollars and they have very, very little to show for it. .
Oh and could Joe’s picture BE more photoshopped?

Jesus, he DOES thinks he’s a fucking celebrity doesn’t he?

Hey Joe Off!,

Instead of “giving face” why not actually, I don’t know know, maybe, DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE? And by that I mean something OTHER THAN collect money, throw $500 chicken dinners and engage in self-congratulatory circle-jerks with democretins who couldn’t give shit about our rights?

You know what also would be productive Joe?
