Obama tells gays at HRC dinner he will get DOMA and DADT repealed and ENDA passed when hell freezes over

by CynthiaYockey on October 10, 2009

Obama told homosexuals to go to hell right to their faces tonight at the Human Rights Campaign banquet, and they gave him standing ovations (H/T Memeorandum).

Andrew Sullivan stopped trying to find Trig Palin’s real mother long enough to sum up Obama’s flimflammery in his HRC speech:

But the sad truth is: he [Obama] is refusing to take any responsibility for his clear refusal to fulfill clear campaign pledges on the core matter of civil rights and has given no substantive, verifiable pledges or deadlines by which he can be held accountable. What that means, I’m afraid, is that this speech was highfalutin bullshit. There were no meaningful commitments within a time certain, not even a commitment to fulfilling them in his first term; just meaningless, feel-good commitments that we have no way of holding him to. Once the dust settles, ask yourself. What did he promise to achieve in the next year? Or two years? Or four years? The answer is: nothing.

Sullivan also calls on the leaders of the Human Rights Campaign to stop acting like battered wives in relation to Obama and his lyin’, cheatin’, beatin’ ways — although my perception is that the entire Democratic homosexual community is acting like battered wives with Obama:

Essentially, Solmonese is asking for patience and silence until the last day of Barack Obama’s second term for any sort of movement on gay equality. Now I can understand how, say, Brian Bond, who is paid to defend the administration on these issues, might say that to mollify activists. I can understand Rahm Emanuel saying that behind closed doors. But what on earth is the head of the biggest gay lobby doing saying that? Can you imagine AIPAC’s head or La Raza’s head pre-emptively telling the administration that we won’t mind very much if you do nothing for us until the end of your second term? They would be forced to resign, pronto.

What HRC have now done is give away any leverage or bargaining power the gay community has with the Obama administration. They are doing what they did with the Clintons: essentially apologize for being a burden and prostrate ourselves to the Democratic party in the hope that they will be kind to us in the very, very long run. And since at a federal level, almost everything is a Congressional act, there’s absolutely no guarantee that Obama will even be able to fulfill any pledges past 2010, let alone 2017. And there’s no guarantee that he will be re-elected in 2012.

From your mouth to God’s ears, Andrew.

The members of the Human Rights Campaign need to realize that homosexuals should stop working and donating to the Democrats RIGHT NOW until Congress repeals DOMA and DADT and passes ENDA. And if those three things do not happen before Thanksgiving 2009, they need to realize this means that no matter how glowingly Obama described the pea that is under those shells he’s moving around so fast, THERE’S NO PEA UNDER THE SHELLS!

The C-SPAN video of Obama’s 38-minute speech at the Human Rights Campaign banquet tonight is not embeddable, but you can see it by clicking the link.

Homosexuals, you are going to get equality from Republicans, not Democrats:

Gay Patriot points out that the largest change in support for gay marriage has come from Republicans.

Moe Lane reminds his readers that he is a supporter of gay marriage, as is Instapundit — which I heard Prof. Reynolds, aka Instapundit, say at CPAC. Moe also highlights the group on the Left that is the real obstacle to gay marriage.

Roger Simon, publisher of Pajamas Media and PJTV, has a gay son and supports gay marriage.

Colin Powell calls for the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

The strongest voice in American politics for homosexual equality, including gay marriage, is DICK FREAKING CHENEY!!!

But Obama opposes gay marriage. He has NEVER marched in a Gay Pride march. Don’t pay any attention to what he says — just watch what he does! He has Attorney General Eric Holder file briefs in support of DOMA. He is doing nothing to stop gays from getting kicked out of the military for being gay. HE. IS. NOT. OUR. FRIEND!

Seriously, gay people — tell the Democrats at the march in D.C. tomorrow that they will get no more support from homosexuals of any kind until they set a timetable for repealing DOMA and DADT and passing ENDA before the 2009 Thanksgiving recess of Congress.


If you are wondering, my nephew will come look after his grandpa so I can go to the march. My dear friend, Genius Artist DC, is 70 and recovering from a serious leg muscle infection, so we will attend the march together and I will push him in the only wheelchair of Margaret’s that I kept in case my parents would need it.

Don’t ask don’t tell has got to go! This law makes the assumption that professional men and women are incapable of working together for a common goal just because they have different sexual orientations.
This is insulting to both homosexuals and heterosexuals.
BTW, I’m Christain, conservative, and married with kids so its not just gays or liberals that find this law offensive.

Andy Sullivan … another on the long Schadenfreude list.

I will add him, tomorrow. And link to your post. (I refuse to link to his after what the idiot did to Sarah Palin.)

Oh, and I can’t bring myself to watch the Obamination at HRC’s dinner. So… THANKS for covering that for us!

I have been trying to figure out for the last year and a half why any gay person would ever have the slightest reason or hope to think that Obama would ever do anything to further the cause of the LBGTQ community. He has never once done or said anything that would imply that. He has basically assumed from day 1 that he would have the community’s support simply because he is a black, male democrat.

Maybe it’s a guy thing.

Is it too soon to call for his impeachment? The left accused Bush of lying and used it as a pretext to call for an impeachment that never happened; trouble is, saying something in earnest that turns out to be untrue isn’t the same as lying. Every time Obama claims he supports

And the usual excuse from Obama’s gay Uncle Tom apologists is, “What, you want Republicans in office?” To which I answer, “Hell yes!”

I want lower taxes so I can have more of my money to keep and give to gay organizations and candidates that actually fight for our rights, and so that the tax burden on gay-owned businesses (like all businesses) is lessened.

I want a strong defense to fight the homophobic radical Islamists. The enemies of the West oppose gay breathing, never mind gay marriage or military service.

I don’t want the state running health care or any other private industry, because it’s not authorized in the Constitution.

I also don’t want the state using taxes to play class warfare.

The gay leftists have gotten nowhere fighting for gay marriage because, as supporters of no other civil liberties to speak of for non-terrorists besides smoking marijuana, the left lacks credibility in speaking on human freedom. The fight for gay rights is a fight for freedom from government disenfranchisement. You can’t fight one form while supporting another.

As a person whose only concern is winning the various wars I’m fairly indifferent on DADT but I’ve got to say battered wives is an excellent description of the homosexual community in this case.

The problem is when you have an ideology as your religious faith you find yourself forced to believe thinks that are demonstratively false.

Give me good old fashioned Catholicism any day of the week.

“Every time Obama claims he supports”, sorry I didn’t finish that sentence:

Every time Obama claims he supports LGBT equality is a lie, because he opposes gay marriage. There is public evidence of that lie.

Oppose gay marriage ≠ support LGBT equality

Basically what gays are seeing is what blacks have experience at the hands of Democrats for eons. I wrote about this back in July on my blog.

It’s more who are you gonna vote for? some Republicans??? bwahahahaha!

Too ironic for words. This is a picture-perfect replay of what happened in the Old World. I knew what would happen when the Official Gays chose to endorse every power-grubbing pragmatist incompetent just because they were in favour of gay marriage. I knew what would happen when the day came when there were more votes in throwing gays to the lions than there were in defending them. That day has now arrived, with the radical Islamic vote.
