Gay group starts petition to force Dems to move convention out of NC
By Neil Munro - The Daily Caller | The Daily Caller – 7 hrs ago

A gay advocacy group is trying to rally sympathizers to help shift the Democrats’ trouble-plagued convention from North Carolina to another state.

The group, Gay Marriage USA, launched a petition on change.org immediately after the state’s voters overwhelmingly decided May 8 to define marriage as a heterosexual institution.

The state’s amendment “discriminates against LGBT people, couples & their families [and] in protest, the Democratic National Convention Committee should MOVE its convention… to a state that upholds values of equality & liberty, and which treats ALL citizens equally,” according to a statement by the group on change.org.

The petition quickly picked up roughly 15,000 votes by 11 a.m. EST, May 9.

I may turn 'gay-for-a-day' (more like 15 minutes) just to sign this.

I’m not a North Carolinian, but I sure wouldn’t want all that liberal scum in my state, no matter how much cash they spread around. The Dems should have their convention up in one of those pro-fag states of theirs.

Cash isn't the only thing they spread around.

Is anybody actually surprised by this?

The Gay Mafia already threatened economic blackmail against NC if this failed.

Moving nthe DNC three months out? This should be fun to watch. All the deposits and airline tickets have already been paid.

The current DNC convention is so heavily under funded as it is, actually getting this petition to work would be a blessing in disguise. It would mean millions of dollars wasted to move it, etc and force diversion of funds from other activities. I hope it succeeds in working, but for different reasons. IMO.

I own a bar in Charlotte and I pray they move the Convention out of the Queen City.

I worry about the OWS crowd coming to town and destroying everything.

I worked to hard to watch my life savings burn due to a bunch of spoiled rotten,trust fund babies having a temper tantrum over Marxism not spreading the wealth fast enough.

Oh, I hope that the gaysbians get their way on this one. Then obama and his minions LOSE North Carolina, and maybe Virginia, too!

And the Dims whole plan of holding their cracked convention in NC to highlight their version of the New South gets flushed down the toilet!!!!

Besides that, they’ll have to rush plans for the convention, and it may not be very effective in convincing voters that obama is anything other than the worst President in our history, a muslim, a communist, a would-be dictator, and just plain Third-World trash!!!!

Yes...move to Chicago!

A little off topic and will probably get me zotted but Mrs p6 and I were getting a few things at a local home improvement store today.

After a bit of good natured bickering at the checkout the clerk asked some stupid question about how long we’d been married.

I said 38 years and the clerk said “but you still love her in the end.”

I responded no, we don’t do that kind of kinky stuff.

Clerk laughed her butt off. Mrs p6 was already outside shopping for garden stuff.

When I told her she smacked me...

A Chicago ‘68 convention repeat in Charlotte with heavy gay and racial overtones would be a major problem for the incumbents.

We have to pass legislation declaring homosexual sodomy to once again be treated as a crime. If it requires an amendment to the constitution, so be it. This time we can add the death penalty to any homosexual over 21 convicted of committing sodomy on a member of the same sex who is under the age of 21.

I've been a bit of a class clown on this thread, but I must admit you have hit the nail on the head. They, who ever they is, that protest against the DNC won't get close to the arena but, If all of the above and OWS crowd show up somewhere in town and make a mess, it can't be ignored by the lame streams at somepoint, the rest of the world won't.

Folks old enough to remember what a mess 68' & 69' were politically will not want to see our country almost destroyed again, unless you are an uber loon like the Ayer's crowd.

I will be thinking about this as the convention is about to occur...

Chicago deserves the DNC. The RNC would probably be happy to bus in thousands of “occupiers” to show their support for the Democrats in their own, unique way. On TV.

It would be like a reenactment of the 1968 DNC. Ernst Rahm Emanuel could call out the police to break heads while the anarchists tried to burn the city down.

At the same time, Chicago could host a G-8, IMF, World Bank and WTO meeting. Turn the place into “Sodom II”, providing their own fire and brimstone.

But, remember California also passed one of those marriage amendments too. Though it’s now in limbo due to federal judges overturning it.

If they are saying that the convention should only be held in a place which allows homosexual marriage, that narrows it down quite a bit. It would have to be in DC, Iowa, Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Vermont, or New Hampshire.

What can the president say now? He’s come out of the closet for same-sex marriage, so how can he protest if other liberals have outrage about North Carolina and their marriage amendment?????
