Homophobic CNN Contributor Roland Martin Tweets Violent Anti-Gay Message During Superbowl – CNN FIRE ROLAND MARTIN!

CNN’s Roland Martin, the same Roland Martin who defended Tracey Morgan after Morgan was busted for telling disgustingly violent homophobic “jokes” in Tennessee where he said he’d “stab his son” if he told him he was gay (funny huh?) made a violent homophobic tweet last night to his over 95,000 followers during the Superbowl when David Beckham’s underwear commercial came on .

Many people on Twitter at that moment called out Martin, who quickly responded calling them “idiots” and stating: “well you’re clearly out of touch and clueless with what I tweeted. Way to assume, but you’re way off base.”

Martin later apologized of course but this is NOT the first time Martin has been called out oh his homophobia.

Martin who made it a cause to defend Tracy Morgan   wrote a passionate defense of Morgan quoted bernie Mac saying that: “It’s jokes. It’s fun. But it’s the truth. In the back of your mind, you be wanting to say this shit sometimes.” and on his website who brags about his wife who is in the business of “praying the gay away,” by converting gays and lesbians into eunuchs:  “My wife, an ordained Baptist minister for 20 years, has counseled many men and women to walk away from the gay lifestyle, and to live a chaste life.”

Lets be real here Martin’s tweets during the Superbowl of making fun and advocating violence against gay people wasn’t a joke and the only “accident” to Martin at lease was that he was BUSTED. Those Tweets are who Martin is, and he has no right or business.

Human Righst Campaign PRAISES Obama’s Handeling of DADT. UNFU#@KINGBELIEVABLE!

Oh get a load of this……..

Democratic lawmakers are happier with his handling of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” [No they’re not]

The House passed a repeal earlier this year, [it’s not a repeal] but it’s stuck in the Senate. The repeal is part of a massive defense bill, and most Republicans want at least two weeks of debate on that. However, Senate leaders hope to limit the lame-duck session to three weeks, and there are lots of items on the agenda.

The president has been working behind the scenes, calling key lawmakers and having Pentagon officials do so, too. [Obama has reportedly called Carl Levin, who was already on board. Who else did he call? The story says “lawmakers” – who did he call? And who have the Pentagon officials contacted in favor of repeal – name one wavering lawmaker any of them has called.]

“We’ve checked one big box, that military leaders support the policy,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. [No they don’t. Mullen is supportive, while Gates is the reason repeal is on death’s door, because he just had to have his study, and it just had to be completed after the elections. And the rest of the joint chiefs are being a royal pain.]

They’ll check another Dec. 1, when the Pentagon is to finish its study on repeal.

Gay rights groups laud Obama’s effort. “He set out his priorities on this early in the year, and look how far it’s come. It just wasn’t always public,” said Joe Solmonese, the president of Human Rights CampaignSt. Louis Tribune

What a crock of shit!

It’s pretty pathetic that SOLMONSLEAZE and the HRC are now claiming that there’s been a super duper secret plan all along.

Tell me Joe/  What’s  HRC’s secret plan for getting DOMA repealed and ENDA passed in the next three weeks before Congress goes home and we’re screwed for years to come? What’s the secret plan to get UAFA and the federal employees benefits bill passed? For getting the hospital visitation memo, which can easily be ignored by the next president, put into law?

We had the best opportunity in history of making significant legislative progress on DADT, DOMA and ENDA – and a host of other gay rights issues – and HRC, President Obama and the Democratic congress blew it.

You know it and WE KNOW IT.  So don’t try to cover your worthless asses now. 

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Solmonese and the HRC are nothing more than hopeless, stooges and nothing more than a White House lackey’s who spews the disinformation that are given him. They are a farce and a charlatan organization to continue trying to spin the failures of Obama as a secret plan and other puerile excuses for an out right homophobe who has no intention of ever standing up and actually doing anything substantial to further our rights

 It’s time that those in LGBT community are still drinking the HRC kool-aid. STOP. Because supporting this worthless, lyimg, brown nosing waste of an Organization who SELF PROCLAIMS to be our leader has and will continue to do us more harm than good as long as their are Horh d’oeuvre, cocktails, White House receptions and photo-ops available to them.

The Human Rights Campaign Fumbled, Bumbled, And Lied To The LGBT Community – Why Joe Solmonese MUST BE Fired!

For almost the past two years Joe Solmonese and the Human Rights Campaign have been telling the LGBT Community that that they had a plan, the White House had a plan, and that they were working together and the plan was going perfectly in the fight for our Equal Rights. But we were lied to. Lied to by our largest, best funded, most influential group. A group that has been in existence for over 30 years whose mission according to their webpage “advocates on behalf of LGBT Americans, mobilizes grassroots actions in diverse communities, invests strategically to elect fair-minded individuals to office and educates the public about LGBT issues. And envision an America where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are ensured equality and embraced as full members of the American family at home, at work and in every community. And how did they try to do this? By 18 months of brown-nosing, sucking up and “secret White House meetings “instead of fighting for our rights and because of that we now have jack shit thanks to the HRC. And when “we” saw this coming. When “we” knew that Solmonese and HRC were taking the wrong path for well over the past year as John Avarois of AmericaBlogGay writes “(we were) routinely dismissed by HRC, which has preferred to focus on the Congress while at the same time covering the President’s ass. Don’t protest at the White House, don’t criticize the President, don’t be mean to Jim Messina. What do those crazy bloggers know? They just hate HRC and aren’t as sophisticated at politics as the brilliant folks over at the Human Rights Campaign.

Well good fucking work there Einstein’s.

This was our best chance. And probably the only good one that we would have for a very long time, And Joe Solmonese and The Human Rights Campaign blew it. And then not only to add to their incompetence they blatantly lied to us to keep their donations coming in and to cover their cushy jobs and reputation.

Over a year ago Joe Solmonese assured us, after meeting with Jim Messina, that “They have a vision, they have a plan.” And as little as two months ago Joe Solmonese told an audience of HRC donors, that DADT would be repealed this year, just as everything was beginning to come out and fall apart. And during this all. Joe Solmonese still found the time to gadfly to Sundance and London while any hopes what we had for even something that should have been as simple as the DADT repeal crumbled.

We have been lied to and bamboozled by our own organization, Even “if”, (and that’s a VERY BIG “if”) Joe Solmonese and the HRC claim that they were “played” by the White house and the Obama Administration after 30 years of lobbying then they well betond repair and have no business representing us in Washington any longer.

Is the Human Rights Campaign beyond repair? Perhaps. But after this fiasco, with all it’s covering up, lies, non-transparency, and ineptitude it has been dealt a very serious blow and if it ever is to recover in the eyes of the LGBT Community it must start now.

The Board of Director’s of the Human Rights Campaign MUST remove Joe Solmonese as President of the organization immediately. (If Joe had any self-respect knowing what he did and how loathe the LGBT Community is of him he would resign)

Will removing Solmonese magically fix the HRC? No. But it’s a start. And the Human Rights campaign will need to make a massive overall of the organization and it’s strategy if it’s ever to be trusted by the LGBT Community again. But to keep a man who either blatantly lied to the LGBT Community about our “supposed” progress or was either too stupid to actually realize that that it was all a sham is not only insulting to the Community but as has been proven over the past few years ineffectual, wasteful and dangerous to the fight for our rights.

Joe must go!
