A presidential medal based on a sex life
WorldNetDaily ^ | 8/12/2009 | Peter Sprigg

When President Obama today awards a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom to Harvey Milk, it may mark the first time in history that the nation's highest civilian award has been granted primarily on the basis of someone's sex life.

As the White House announcement explained, "Harvey Milk became the first openly gay elected official from a major city in the United States when he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977." Yet Milk served in that office for less than a year, so that hardly qualifies him for the Medal of Freedom. Milk was also assassinated in November of 1978. But that cannot qualify him for this award, either – San Francisco Mayor George Moscone was killed by the same assassin the same day, but he will receive no Medal of Freedom. At least lesbian Billie Jean King, who will also be honored by Obama, was a genuine tennis star.

But Milk is famous only for winning one election, being murdered – and having sex with men. In his "gay rights" stump speech, Milk once said, "Like every other group, we must be judged by our leaders and by those who are themselves gay." What can we conclude about the homosexual movement in America based on the life of Harvey Milk? I recently decided to find out by reading "gay journalist" Randy Shilts' 1982 biography of Milk, "The Mayor of Castro Street."

Just think about all the straits who won medals. Was it based on their orientation? Certainly not. But we need to really search for a reason to give medals to the freaks so they will stop having those dreadful parades.

"A presidential medal based on a perverted sex life" would be more accurate.

So, this isn’t a joke.

I am positively astonished that this award would go to such a person.

God save us.

“...I can’t believe that this amoral person was elected....”

Which one, Milk or Zer0? In Milk’s case, we are talking about San Francisco after all. No surpise there. Just wonder how many more “Milk’s” htere are in San Fran politics.

Now, as for Zer0..... .

I was referring to Zero, but I see your point. I could have just as easily been referring to Milk.

Harvey Milk’s dry cleaner is the one who deserves a medal.

Why don’t gay men have the same reaction Adam did when he first laid eyes on Eve, which is equivalent to the reaction I have when I look at this picture of bikini girl. It should be, “Whoa! Way to go, God!”

It’s a medal of freedom, not of honor.

Milk was not an honorable man. He was a mean, based,
manipulating deceiver.

But he supposedly allows people to be free to make a choice.
He supposedly opens doors for others to make that choice
with less societal judgement. But even if this is a noble
goal (I don’t believe it is), then why not pick someone who
had a little (non-sexual) moral fiber?

Could it be because the whole movement is mean, base,
manipulative and deceptive? If so, then Milk is the
perfect standard bearer.

One of the things that is rarely mentioned about Milk was his political relations and support of cult leader and mass murderer Jim Jones. It was completely glossed over in the friggin movie ***SHOCKER***.

zer0 rewarded his change agents. He even said so. He has succeeded in cheapening yet another part of our culture, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom is now thoroughly sullied.

Don’t forget The Bent One: He gave Bob Dole the PMF as a de facto reward for losing the 1996 election.

Just think. If Harvey had swung both ways, he could have been renamed, Harvey Half and Half!
