Democratic Rep. Barney Frank has criticized Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for her role in the rejection of two international gay civil rights groups by a United Nations body.
Last month, the U.N. Economic and Social Council, a think tank made up of nongovernmental agencies from around the world, voted not to admit the International Lesbian and Gay Association and the Danish Association of Gays and Lesbians.
According to 365Gay.com, their application to join other nongovernmental agencies on the council was rejected without a hearing after the United States voted with some of the world's most repressive regimes, including Iran, Zimbabwe, China, Cameroon and Columbia, to turn down the request.
"I was deeply troubled to learn that the U.S. Government, presumably at your direction, sided with some of the most undemocratic, anti-human rights regimes in the world in voting against consultative status for two international organizations, solely on the grounds that they represent gay and lesbian people," Frank, of Massachusetts, said in a letter to Rice.
A: a sodomite
My boy lollipop....you make the UN giddy up
"that's a loaded headline"
Yes, it is! A classic Limbacher touch. LOL.
I just *love* your profile page!
Atilla the Hun... left flank... damn good!
I thought about the same thing. The Democrats have always had a love affair with any communist and despotic regime such as the Soviet Union, Nicaragua, Castro's Cuba, etc.
Thanks, I worked real hard to define my position without resorting to profanity....
Unfortunately, much of what I consider "expressive speech" is generally regarded as profanity.....
Welcome to America. I too am a 1st generation citizen of America....
According to Maxine Waters, he's Salomon Barney Frank.
Semper Fi, brother.
It's encouraging to find an issue we can all agree on.
"According to Maxine Waters, he's Salomon Barney Frank."
Who wishes he were Salome Barney Frank.
How does that sick POS keep getting re-elected?
LOL...excuse me while I dry my keyboard and monitor!
Bend over Barney and take it like a man.
I was somewhat troubled by this. I have yet to find a reasonable explanation of why we ended up on the same side of the vote on this issue with Iranian National Socialists. Perhaps someone here has an explanation. I sure can't figure one out.
ECOSOC is one of those harmless U.N. talk shops. I would look forward to Condi's explanation of this at her next conference.
Be Seeing You,
'Poke Back' Frank strikes again!!!
I'd seen your moniker and cartoon for awhile but didn't get it until I was introduced to Ghost in the Shell by my teens. Now I'm hooked too!
Barney Frank is such a maroon!
