Barney Frank Blames Us For Not Getting ENDA Brought To The Senate Floor

Time is running out before the Democrats get massacred during Mid-Terms.  We MIGHT get the DADT Repeal (Non-Repeal) passed but ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act),   The Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act, not to mention any repeal of DOMA have fallen by the wayside.  And who does openly gay crotchety Barney Frank throw under the bus?  US!

Frank who is the chief architect of ENDA — said he is working on bringing the bill up during the lame-duck session but did not know if it would happen. He placed part of the blame for ENDA’s delay on gay activists. “They haven’t been doing a good enough job of lobbying their members. People have demonstrations. They don’t lobby their members. I want all of the groups that I agree with to be like the NRA,” Frank said.

Oh okay Barney you and your friends want to be PAID?  Taken on trips?  Given gifts?  How about a facelift and some liposuction?  That’s do-able.  The HRC’s budget is 25 Million a year.  I am sure we could BUY the votes we need for everything.  And truthfully it whole be a better use for the money than running the HRC.  25 Million could buy a lot of votes. 

On the other hand Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality says that ENDA was never a top priority [for Democratic leaders], and we ran out of time.” (Which I agree with but then blames the media for elevating the issue of gays in the military over ENDA. (Which I don’t because Congress should be able to handle more than one issue at a time)

The truth of the matter is that the Democrats don;t care about us.  They care about their jobs.  We have lobbied and we have called and Barney knows that and I’ll call bullshit on his fat blustery ass any day.  His comments are nothing more than a smokescreen to push this all back on us.  But the truth is, the REAL truth is that they don’t care about the LGBT Community and they don;t care about equal and civil rights.  They are scared if they move upon anything LGBT rights legislation that has less than a 90 percent approval rating throughout America that it would harm the chances for their re-election  because they are and they might actually have to work for a living. 

They have the NERVE to blame us for THEIR failure and not doing what is not only their job, but constitutionally right because all Americans are supposed to be created equal.

They sold us a bill of goods and then did not deliver.  They’ve insulted us by throwing us crumbs and then making believe they were giant achievement’s, and in the end when everyone can see that they have  failed us miserably now they try to blame us.

This was our best shot.  Democrats controlling the Presidency and the Hill.  They promised us.  They lied to us.  They took the money and support that we gave them and then threw us under the bus.  And we might never get a chance like this again.

They should be ashamed of themselves.  But I doubt that they are.

How can we trust anything they ever say, or any promises that they make ever again.

Homo Say What? – "Democrat First – Homo Second" Barney Frank Calls GetEQUAL’s ENDA Activist Protest: ‘Stupid ‘

Well it seems Barney “Democrat first, Homo second” Frank wasn’t none too pleased by yesterday’s GetEQUAL action at a House Labor Committee:

From MetroWeekly:

”What a stupid thing to do.” Those were the first words an agitated Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) spit out when commenting on the Get Equal protest that happened Wednesday morning, April 21, at a meeting of the House Education and Labor Committee. On Sunday, the openly gay Frank said the committee would be marking up and voting on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) ”this week or next.” The activists, led by Get Equal co-founder Robin McGehee, weren’t waiting. Signs and markers in hand, they walked right up the aisle of the hearing room on Wednesday to Chairman George Miller (D-Calif.), offering him a marker to mark up the bill right then. Frank called the action ”immature, tacky” behavior on Wednesday afternoon and said that ”George Miller and others are working hard” to see the bill passed in the House.

“Immature and tacky behavior” *chortle*  This coming from an openly gay politician who sits back and defends the Obama administrations after  it spits on us (Rick Warren at the inauguration), lies to us, (DADT will be repealed this year), and stabs us in the back, (The DOJ fighting against us, insulting us, and lying in DOMA cases.)  Perhaps Frank should get off his ample ass and make a stand and join us and finally be a Homo first and a Democrat second instead of the other way around,.

Barney Frank Plays The Blame Game And Whines About Whiners – Hey Barney! Be A Winner, NOT a Whiner!

Rep Barney Frank insists in a recent interveiw to Michelangelo Signorile. “You don’t wait for the president to go out and lobby. The NRA doesn’t wait for the president to go out and lobby. … You think the president has a magic wand? [Waiting for the president to force a vote] is exactly why we’re going to lose.”

Well Barney if you call buying votes and backing candidates with obscene sums of cash like the NRA does when it lobbys I guess we know what our mistakes are now according to you don’t we.  Oh and also I suppose that the “magic wand” that Lyndon Johnson used for the 1965 Civil Rights Act has been lost and finding it will soon be the plotline for National Teasure 3?

Barney you are so full of shit.  Old fashioned lobbying of individuals calling Congress and such no longer works.  Politicians do what THEY want.  Not what the people want and you would think after Health Care we would all know that.  Politicians today do not care about the people they care about what THEY can get.  Maybe we should stop donating to Gay Inc. and the DNC and just do what the NRA does and donate obscene sums of money to certain candidates in exchange for thier support.

Is that what Barney Blowhard is REALLY saying?
