They said it was Reagan’s fault that there was no cure for AIDS. What’s Obama’s excuse?

What Happens When You Let Gay Philly Activists Into the White House
They pose for pics giving Ronald Reagans portait the finger.

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 Houses 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.
Its 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. Im 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 wasnt Segals first trip to the White House, having twice visited during Bill Clintons 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 couldnt 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 Harts Fuck Reagan note, to my personal favorite, star wars up yours, on Strausss.
Strauss, who is also seen here, kissing her partner beneath the Reagan portrait, declined to comment for this story (Im 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 Courts Bowers v. Hardwick decision, upholding the constitutionality of Georgias anti-sodomy law, the Iran-Contra affair and the invasion of Grenada.
Additionally, Strauss posted Reagans memorable statement on LGBT rights from the 1980 campaign trail: My criticism is that [the gay movement] isnt just asking for civil rights; its 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. Dont invite me back. I dont 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 closetuntil 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 were 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.
Drudge now has it linked to the weekly standard with a photo on his page
is that the best picture you can find? That’s just a thumbnail.
They’d better steam clean everything!
read the whole thing
more pictures - do you like the one of 2 lesbians kissing under President Reagan’s portrait?
and our own Marine Corps band had to perform for this sick disordered bunch, an event that made the obama staff “giddy”
Don’t let them sleep in the Lincoln bedroom.The stains will never come out.
Apparently she never learned about the separation of powers in the THREE branches of government. Why not blame the Democrat led Congress?
Even more motivation for us to work and pray harder to get this trash out of office..
BO an MO’s entire purpose of getting into the WHITE House was to debase it and bring it waaaaayyyyy down to their filthy anti-American, non-Christian level.
Nothing that antibiotics, bleach, air freshener and a Christian Blessing can’t fix.
Don’t blame me. My CPAP is in storage. Haven’t a good nights sleep in a week. /s
And Harry S Truman was happy to see Eastern Europe conquered by Communism and millions murdered in Soviet gulags.
She's a barking moonbat and a hysterical bwitch.
What a horrible distortion of a word. They have done it with rainbow, progressive, liberal, forward, democrat, etc.
The evil left destroys words, history, and everything they touch.
It was at the head of Drudge, and then the mag pulled it. (Methinks they are getting panicky calls from the WH, no?).
Then Drudge put in another version. I noticed the site was slowing. This is deadly to Obama, if the leftists aren’t able to scotch it getting out somehow.
It’s amazing to me that leftists breed and nurture these hating, anti traditional, godless sexual types and then get panicked when they pull these antics. They should be able to predict this stuff by now. Did they really expect these people to behave?
