FINALLY — Gays unite to withhold donations to Democrats until DADT and DOMA are repealed while pro-choice Democratic women threaten mutiny or something

by CynthiaYockey on November 10, 2009

Well, well, well!

Since Sunday, two groups that Democrats have gleefully exploited and abused and held hostage — because what are they going to do? become Republicans? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! — have finally figured out that they must unite and ring the party’s bell to teach it a lesson in keeping its promises that it will never forget.

Leftist/Democrat/PUMA women went into revolt on Sunday over the Stupak amendment to the Pelosicare health care reform bill that just squeaked through the House on Saturday night. It turns out when you’ve spent your entire life fighting for a woman’s right to choose — which I support — when your party passes a healthcare reform bill that not only LEAVES OUT coverage of women’s healthcare needs BUT ALSO has an amendment barring all insurance providers, public and private, from paying for abortions — even though Obama/Pelosi promise it is just there to fake out pro-lifers and will never get made into law — then a critical mass of people start to wonder if they’ve been had!

Phyllis Chesler calls for the 2,000-plus prominent and mostly Leftist women who signed a petition in support of Obama’s candidacy in 2008 — thereby repudiating the far more qualified female candidate, Hillary Clinton — to wake up and do something:

Well, Obama’s and Pelosi’s healthcare bill has, so far, been passed in the House. Federal funding for abortion (except in cases of rape and incest) has been deemed not as important as the right of the poorest (male) person to receive various sub-quality health care treatments and benefits.

So: I challenge these left feminists to do something about this. I challenge my old friend Gloria Steinem to pick up the phone and call the White House. NOW’s old national President, Kim Gandy, was a frequent White House visitor. How about it, Kim? I know that the new National Organization of Women is already planning rallies.

But my question is: What will the prominent left feminist signatories really do about this?

Break with the Democratic Party? Form a third party? Work with the Republican Party? Apply for asylum in Saudi Arabia?

Leftist women don’t appear to have a plan for their mutiny, yet, but I expect one will crystallize soon unless the epidemic of Palin Derangement Syndrome set to break out around Nov. 16 so poisons their systems that they start to believe everything Obama/Pelosi/Reid say again.

Gays, however, have been betrayed by Obama and the Democratic Party more often and in far more ways than pro-choice women. And it turns out they DO have a plan. So yesterday (11/9/09) John Aravosis and Joe Sudbay at AmericaBlogGay began a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Give” campaign to make the Democrats pay a price for reneging on the promises they used to get so much gay money and labor during the 2008 presidential campaign:

What is this?

We are asking voters to pledge to withhold contributions to the Democratic National Committee, Organizing for America, and the Obama campaign until the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is passed, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT) is repealed, and the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is repealed — all of which President Obama repeatedly promised to do if elected.

Why are you asking people to take this pledge?

Candidate Obama promised during the campaign to be the gay community’s “fierce advocate.” He and the Democratic party have not kept their promise.

Can you give examples of how the President and Democrats have not been fierce advocates for the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans?

[What follows here is a very long list of Obama’s betrayals of, and insults to, the homosexual community. Surprisingly, it does not include Obama’s latest blow: just 13 days after telling the Human Rights Campaign fundraising banquet attendees that he would get DADT repealed, he had his Justice Department file a brief in support of it.]

I was appalled at the apologizing and groveling Aravosis did in the FAQ for defying Obama and holding him to account. That is how severely emotionally abused people behave. It is speaks volumes about how homosexuals really are treated by the Democratic Party and the Left.

    The chickens are coming home to roost at the DNC. And let me be the first to say, they’re finger-lickin’ good!

  • Won’t happen. Like the PUMAs in 2008 they’ll shout and moan and then vote the straight, excuse the phrase, party line…

    IMO, homosexuals and American blacks have much in common vis-a-vis the Democrats. The relationship is deeply abusive: promise anything, say anything, use and abuse as tools against the other side, all the while knowing that the Big Lie is being spoken. Then, when the Dems get what they want, “who are you?” More Big Lie, you can’t leave us cuz the other guy will never give you what you want; he hates you. I know what you need. I’ve long counseled young blacks to be pragmatic in their voting choices. Leverage your vote. They don’t listen but continue to buy the Democrat Big Lie year after year. I attribute that degree of gullibility to the deceived group’s hatred of the other guy. For American blacks the other guy is the GOP; for homosexuals, it’s Christians.

    As much as you’re offering encouragement, Cynthia, I would bet you $20 that your offer will not be taken up. Why? The virulent anti-Christian hatred in the larger homosexual community is what is likely to deter them hugely from joining the GOP. At the core of it is a rejection of the Word and of us because we believe the Word, and a refusal to accept that, while we don’t all hate homosexuals (some Christians do, and wrongly s0), the Word is for us a non-negotiable. It says what it says. Our stance is “welcome, but don’t expect us to set aside what we believe for you.” Nevertheless, it would be good for both groups to dialogue rationally, without the protest marches and the offensive banners or repugnant treatment of representative images of those important to our faith. To sit eye to eye and arrive at an understanding, with reasoned disagreements in the middle and so we can work for the good of the country, would be marvelous. Where we can work together, we work. Where we differ, we differ.

    Hillbuzz boys and new arrivants aside, homosexuals are already part of the GOP, and have been—that’s what the Log Cabin boys are about. That’s what some of our members of Congress are about. We don’t have to agree on everything, but we should talk cuz, after all, we’re one Party, one Father’s children. The debate is likely to be a vigorous and noisy one because the GOP, unlike the Democrats, admits all opinions.

    I’ve always found it wonderfully ironic that so many homosexuals, virulently hating Christians, have found it within them to make common cause with Muslims. I guess the common thread is that the Muslims hate us just as much and would also rid themselves of us if they could. The enemy of my enemy, you know.

    • apodoca,

      Jamie Glazov has the answer to your last paragraph in his book, United in Hate.

      Also, gays don’t hate Christianity — one of the first things to happen after the Stonewall riots in 1969 was the founding of the Metropolitan Community Church by evangelical Christian Rev. Troy Perry. The MCC has grown and thrived since then. And there are gay organizations specific to pretty much every religion so that gays can worship. However, there ARE social conservative totalitarian Christians who are asking people that they are murdering through the death of second-class citizenship to be nicer about their objections to having their lives de-valued and destroyed by people who are motivated by greed and lust for power — when they themselves would have a much harsher reaction if the tables were turned.

      About the non-negotiable stuff — actually, Christians are infinitely flexible when they want to be. And that’s a good thing.

      I do appreciate that you continue to read this blog and have a courteous dialog. And I honor the impulse to do right and love God in everyone.

      Cynthia

  • I really rolled my eyes at the lukewarm “Please don’t be mad at me daddy!” manner that their declaration was made with.

    “Boycott the DNC! Well… just until they find their way… they didn’t REALLY mean to lie to us…. they just need a reminder of how good we are to them so they don’t take us for granted….”

    Just like an abused spouse…..
