Campos wants Harvey Milk's name on SFO
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | January 14, 2013 | Marisa Lagos

Posted on 01/15/2013 5:59:26 AM PST by artichokegrower

A San Francisco supervisor wants to rename the city's airport in honor of civil rights leader Harvey Milk, a change supporters said would send a global message about the importance and struggles of gays and lesbians for equality.

Supervisor David Campos will introduce legislation Tuesday that would place the proposal to rename San Francisco International Airport as Harvey Milk San Francisco International Airport before voters in November. To send the name change to voters, Campos needs the support of five other supervisors, and Monday he already had four co-sponsors.

ROTFLMAO... In all seriousness though, I will NOT ever use San Francisco International Airport again if they rename it for that filty feltch monkey. I am appalled at the brazen promotion of the “gay” lifestyle that is constantly being forced on everyone. San Francisco has been ruined by all the gays that have flocked there. There is no way I’d let my children anywhere near that vile sewer.

San Francisco can name its airport Drag Queen International Airport for all I care. The problem is that San Francisco then wants to tell me what to do in my area too. They want the whole world to follow their rules.

If Harvey Milk hadn’t been shot, he wouldn’t have been remembered for much. And frankly, much of what he did wasn’t that good:

That's positively tame compared to some other photos I've seen (and wished I hadn't) of a festival in SF. I canceled a vacation there because of those pics.

Harvey Milk was a Loose End in Jim Jones’ People’s Temple. Not everyone drank the Kool-Aide willingly.

Amidst growing pressure in the United States to investigate the Temple, on February 19, 1978, Harvey Milk wrote a letter of support for the Peoples Temple to President Jimmy Carter.[74][75][76] Therein, Milk wrote that Jones was known "as a man of the highest character."[76] Regarding the leader of those attempting to extricate relatives from Jonestown, Milk wrote he was "attempting to damage Rev. Jones reputation" with "apparent bold-faced lies."[76]

It's amazing how much Jones was courted by the political elites in CA and WA because he was a fellow Marxist.

I wonder if Milk was actually a Jones follower or just a typical political whore. Jones had cash and Milk needed it; Milk would jump in bed (forgive the pun) with anyone who could further his cause but I do think his connection with Jones may have been deeper than that.

Milking Harvey for all he’s not worth. Also why not exhume him and put him on display in a glass coffin in the International Terminal atrium.

How about on a concession stand at the airport? They could name it “Milk, Milk, Lemonade ...”

SF does itself no service by making everything about gays (not lesbians, their capital is Seattle). The city has so much more of a rich history, it sells itself short with this obsession.
