Rep Joe Wilson Tries Last Ditch Effort To Derail DADT, Defense Department Replies: “YOU LIE!”

On September 12th  the infamous Rep. Joe Wilson chairman of the Military Personnel Subcommitteesent  and Rep. Buck McKeon  chairman of the House Armed Services Committee sent a whiny letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta asking that repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell be delayed because  McKeon and Wilson claim that they have not received from the DOD “revised regulations and a summary of all the specific policy changes, especially with regard to benefits, that will take effect upon repeal.”

Today the Depart Of Defense replied to McKeon and Wilson with an answer.

NO.

“The repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will occur, in accordance with the law and after a rigorous certification process, on September 20. Senior Department of Defense officials have advised Congress of changes to regulations and policies associated with repeal. We take that obligation seriously.”

So in other words Rep. Buck McKeon and Rep. Joe Wilson YOU LIE and YOU LOSE!

Gustavus Adolphus College Student and Hateful Bigot Phil Cleary Wants To Stop the "Leftist Bias" and Tolerance On His College Campus (Video)

Phil Cleary, a Gustavus Adolphus student and the executive director of Gusties for Restoring America, which has its own Facebook page with a whole 38 members, is incensed that freshman orientation includes an hour long self awareness seminar called “The Inside Scoop” that advises freshman on how to deal with, respect, and and not be afraid or ashamed of being or dealing with people of different sexual orientations, religions, or races.

Cleary, a Minnesota native, (and who has all the earmarks of a self loathing closet case) has been blogging on CampusReform.org, a right wing extremist website which “is designed to provide conservative activists with the resources, networking capabilities, and skills they need to revolutionize the struggle against leftist bias and abuse on college campuses”  The website is owned by Morton C. Blackwells Right Wing  “Leadership Institute” whose past students include Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell and Joe “You Lie!” Oh, and did I forget to mention that Cleary is also an Intern for the Office of the President at The Leadership Institute

Cleary, is not happy that Gustavus Adolphus an Evangelical Lutheran Church  Liberal Arts Cchool in Minnesota is teaching tolerance and respect towrds others (The ELC are the Lutherans who are okay with gays, btw) Cleary uploaded videos of the seminar on YouTube after “infiltrating” the event.

Blogs Cleary:

This second event [top clip] goes a bit further than the first, educating students about distinctions between gender and sex (as well as how to celebrate “LGPBBTTQ&A”), testimonies from gay, lesbian, and atheist students, and a call censor the content of speech after screaming cuss words at students in the dark.

Cleary commented, “This is propaganda that one might expect be taught in a Gender and Sexuality course at a secular, state institution. However, Gustavus is a Lutheran school in southern Minnesota founded by Swedish immigrants in the 1800’s, and these shameful seminars are presented during the first few hours and days that students are on campus before classes even begin.”

Now many of you probably think this is a non-story of some little bigot right wing asshole college student  and his 38 followers making a big deal out of nothing.  But this is how Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell and other wingnuts begin and spread their hate.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget this is how Hitler started also.  So the question is should we show tolerance for those who hate us?  or should we hold them up to public spectacle and ridicule and call them out for the hateful bigots that they are. 

I choose the latter.
