What Happens When You Let Gay Philly Activists Into the White House
They pose for pics giving Ronald Reagan’s portait the finger.
By Victor Fiorillo 6/22/2012 Comments 0
Here is text at site: only one pic available.

Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.

“It’s not a gesture that I would use in the White House when representing our city and our community,” opines Philadelphia Gay News publisher Mark Segal (center), who opted for a sarcastic thumbs-up pose in front of the portrait of George W. Bush over the more vulgar one demonstrated by his Reagan-loathing peers, Matthew “Matty” Hart (left), the national director of public engagement at Solutions for Progress, and self-taught photographer turned toast-of-the-town Zoe Strauss (right).

“I have friends who work in that building,” Segal explains. “I’m not going to do something that could embarrass them or that could somehow damage a campaign that is so important. ‘Be on your best behavior,’ my staff told me.’ I think they know me too well.”

This wasn’t Segal’s first trip to the White House, having twice visited during Bill Clinton’s gay-friendly tenure. “One of the things on my bucket list was to dance with my boyfriend at the White House,” remarks Segal.”And this is the second time I got to do it. We come up to the main foyer, and what do they play? Barbra Streisand. ‘The Way We Were.’ And I thought, Are they going to play nothing but Barbra, Bette and Lady Gaga? I was waiting for ‘Over the Rainbow.’ I mean, this is the Marine band!” Clearly, Segal, a dedicated activist but also an astute political hobnobber, wants to be invited back.

But his counterparts couldn’t seem to care less. Hart posted his photo on Facebook with the caption, “Fuck Reagan.” Strauss simply posted hers without commentary. After all, the murderous facial expression and double-barreled bird-flipping seem to speak for themselves. Comments ranged from “you forgot to add with a chainsaw” on Hart’s “Fuck Reagan” note, to my personal favorite, “star wars … up yours,” on Strauss’s.

Strauss, who is also seen here, kissing her partner beneath the Reagan portrait, declined to comment for this story (“I’m keeping out of the press!” she texted me), but made crystal clear her position on Reagan by posting on Facebook a long list of things that happened under his watch, including the Supreme Court’s Bowers v. Hardwick decision, upholding the constitutionality of Georgia’s anti-sodomy law, the Iran-Contra affair and the invasion of Grenada.

Additionally, Strauss posted Reagan’s memorable statement on LGBT rights from the 1980 campaign trail: “My criticism is that [the gay movement] isn’t just asking for civil rights; it’s asking for recognition and acceptance of an alternative lifestyle which I do not believe society can condone, nor can I.”

“Yeah, fuck Reagan,” reiterates Hart one week after the reception. “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and queer people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so. Don’t invite me back. I don’t care.”

Switching gears, Hart describes the reception as “fantastic” and notes that the White House staff seemed “giddy.” ”A lot of work had to happen to make this reception politically viable and possible,” he observes. “There were many service members there. I met a woman with lots of medals, an important military person, who was with her partner. And all her life, she had to be in the closet—until now. And I met a couple from Tennessee in their mid-50s, two men who have been in a relationship for 22 years and run an LGBT youth program. They could barely speak with their emotions. They kept saying, All through grade school and high school, people were telling us we’re gonna burn in hell. And here we are honored guests of Obama.”

Referring to the reception and not to his photo op, Hart adds, “It was just a gesture, but a very powerful one.” Speaking of powerful gestures, Hart shot portions of the video below, which features, among other things, Segal dancing to the Marine Corps band and a wedding proposal between a female-to-male transgendered person (killer suit!) and a biological woman.

“And so is it correct to refer to this as a transgendered wedding proposal?” I asked Hart this morning, via Facebook chat, naturally. “2012 is so confusing!” His reply: “I think this is the proposal of our time. It is not so easy to categorize. Liberating.”

Don’t know how others do it, but there’s a key labeled “Print Screen” on the top row of my keyboard. Tap that, then go to your graphics program. I use Start-Programs-Accessories-Paint.

Hit the “print screen” key. That will copy the screen shot to your clipboard. Then open up the Paint program and paste. You can crop and save it from Paint (under accessories in the windows tool bar).

What a really disgusting piece of filth our pResident is. First, he has his White Hut writers insert Lord Obama into virtually every Presidential Biography touting what Obama has done that makes what so-and-so’s work so much better. Then, he brings in a bunch of homos to dance to a Marine Corps band while they grab each other’s asses I guess. He is an utter piece of sh!t.

You can imagine the call from the WH when they found out this had been posted. Probably after Drudge linked it. I hope Drudge or Breitbart has this cached. If they scrub it, it becomes even more of a story.

Actually it’s ALT + PRINT SCREEN, and it’s also the long way to do it, and it saves the whole screen, not just the picture.

If you can’t find SAVE IMAGE AS when doing a RIGHT CLICK on the IMAGE, then do ALT + PRINTSCREEN. Then open any drawing or image software (such as MS PAINT), and from the MENU pick EDIT , then PASTE (or just do a CONTROL-V).

Then you can SAVE it to your hard drive from MS PAINT(or whatever you use).

This reveals the true colors of the homosexual agenda.

Wake up conservatives in the Republican party.

Good values and sodomy are diametrically opposed.

Dump fake American values and dump fake Christian values.

By dump I mean call them out, stop supporting them and stop trying to excuse them to garner a few votes.

IMHO.

Already gone.

"...Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger..."

This entire thing makes me want to puke. Being a former swabbie, I have to take heat (and a lot of it deservedly so) for the attitudes and policies of the US Navy, but if the USMC band is playing to "honor" homosexuals, that isn't a good sign. But we all knew that in advance.

The guy had four people close to him gunned down? I say BS.

And the Reagan thing speaks for itself.
