HRC snubs Dems supports Logs, issues this Statement on Log Cabin Republican Endorsement of McCain/Palin
Talking out of the side of your face.
If The "Human Rights Campaign" was concerned with LGBT rights why do they support the GOP with $10,000 for the Republican convention and snub the Stonewall Democrats
This is the Human Rights Campaign Statement on Log Cabin Republican Endorsement of McCain/Palin.
WASHINGTON - The following is a statement from Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese on the Log Cabin Republican endorsement of John McCain and Sarah Palin:
"John McCain claims to be a maverick who breaks with his party, but on matters of LGBT equality, he's shown that he's anything but. He actively campaigned for a constitutional amendment that would have banned marriage and domestic partnerships for same-sex couples in his home state of Arizona. He went so far as to appear in television commercials for that campaign, is now supporting an amendment to strip marriage equality from California couples and has said that he would vote for a federal marriage amendment if laws already banning marriage equality were to be struck down by federal courts. Sarah Palin has also supported bans on marriage and even domestic partner benefits in Alaska. The Republican Party, McCain and Palin's party, has declared in its platform that they want to pass the federal marriage amendment. Their party's platform also calls gay and lesbian Americans unfit for military service, supports policies that would allow faith-based organizations to deny us jobs and services using federal dollars, and attacks judges who acknowledge our equality under the law. The Human Rights Campaign endorses mavericks on both sides of the aisle- neither John McCain nor Sarah Palin is among them," said HRC President Joe Solmonese.
Where did Solmonese address the Log Cabin Republicans endorsement of Palin/McCain?
If you are on the HRC email list you too have been inundated by HRC with statements professing support for the democrats and highlighting their opposition to McCain/Palin.

Some from Joe Solmonese (HEad Dick of HRC) speech at S.F. black tie;
"Has it been without sharp disagreements about how best to move forward?" referring to the entire San Francisco GLBT community protesting, "No, as evidenced by the people protesting outside tonight."
FYI solmonese "those people" you are dismissing as "those" IS US THE QUEERS!
He went on to say;
"In any struggle for civil rights in this country, there have been occasions when different groups of people have marched down different roads. What is important to our ultimate success is that each of those roads ends at the same place"

I will not accept this behaviour as acceptable from the largest "human rights" organization.
Submitted 05/06/08 to Southern Voice, sound off section pending
Joe Solmonese has once again showed his true colors.
He gathered a group of potentially sympathetic transgender people and
portrays this as actual dialogue.
He offers a explanation that he mis-spoke at southern comfort. Some
of these "activists" are either overwhelmed by by Solmonese or brain
dead when they declare a apology was issued. Thankfully some of the
activists were clear thinking and rejected this side ways
Where is the acknowledgement from Solmonese that a political agenda
was being followed in September 2007 and continues to this date to
exclude and marginalize gender variant people.
As far as HRC meddling in my job where does HRC get off telling my
employer how to treat me? HRC needs to get out of my business. Am I
writing papers for the employers of gay people telling how to treat
them? Am I using political blackmail to force congressional leaders
to vote against Gay People? NO I AM NOT.
HRC LEAVE TRANSGENDER PEOPLE ALONE. You have done enough harm. Every
time you do us wrong people die. Lawrence Kings death is on your
hands HRC. This death is a direct result of your policy. Find it in
your heart Joe Solmonese to direct HRC to stop killing us.
