Video – Watch HRC President Joe Solmonese Blame ‘Every Player’ Except The HRC For The ‘DADT’ Repeal Failure – JOE MUST GO!

Last night CNN’s John King interviewed Joe Solmonese, President of the Human Rights Campaign, and discussed the failed Senate ‘DADT’ repeal bill.

According to Solmonsleaze:

“I think everybody involved in this process let the community down. Every one of the players in this process let the community down because the fact of the matter was there was a path forward, whether it was the White House, the Democratic leadership, the Republicans who supported this bill. I have to believe we could have found that way forward and we could have gotten it done.”

Of course Joe did not include the HRC in his critique.of the problem which HRC and himself are a major

reason for the failing because of their spineless ass kissing ways.

In September Andrew Sullivan and also this blog clled upon HRC to fire Joe Solmonese or for Solmonese himself to do the right thing in resign.  Those calls fell upon deaf ears.  Now after the massive lying, ineptitude and the spinelessness of HRC and its President Solmonese has finally come to light others are also joining the call.

Pam Spaulding of Pam’s House Blend has also called upon Solmonese to resign.

Joe Solmonese should do the honorable thing and step down. It is shameful to cash all those checks without the follow through on the job. The White House was never put under serious pressure; the late calls now in the e-blasts for the President to do something ring hollow after the toadying that has gone on for two years

. Its well past time kids.  If HRC wants to represent us Solmonese needs to leave and the entire organization needs to be restructured.  But the first move is getting Solmonese out of there!

Our house is only as strong as the foundation that it is built upon and Solmonese and HRC are rotten to the core, need to be excavated and rebuilt.

Anyone volunteer to write up the petition?

Andrew Sullivan Calls For HRC President Joe Solmonese To Resign. We Finally Agree On Something – JOE MUST GO!

That blustery, affectatious, ex-republican bear known as Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic is calling for Joe Solmonese, The Human Rights Campaign President to step down if DADT is not repealed within Obama’s first term.  Now I agree with Andrew, but I know that doesn’t shock any regular Back2Stonewall.com readers.  But I think Joe Solmonese should not be given two more years (Or as Joe probably thinks of it $700k in salary)  I believe that Joe Solmonese should resign NOW!

Think about, all we’ve heard from Solmonese and the HRC is that their way of doing things works. Lobbying and being in really tight with the lawmakers. Cocktail parties and smoozefests fundraisers. They have a Congress that is  Democratic. They have a  majority in the house and Senate and yet HRC for all their supposed clout in DC couldn’t help get a bill passed, or for that fact energize their good friend Barack to even push it,  that over 85% of the U.S. wants.

That should be the last nail in their coffin and Joe’s pink slip because it truly indicates that within their own field of expertise they have failed and are utterly useless.And lets not forget that, they have opposed every single court case at first (until they win) that has ended up getting us any forward movement to our rights, including the recent Prop 8 ruling and the recent DADT case.

Solmonese needs to be fired.  And HRC if they still want to exist needs a new strategy.  Nothing less will do.

Now repeat after me:   JOE MUST GO!     JOE MUST GO!     JOE MUST GO!
