Yucko!

This "new" tone of the Democrat leadership really reflects the "real" America. I hope she wins her post and keeps up the good work.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi

Statement Celebrating San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride
and in Honor of Officer Jon D. Cook

June 27, 2002 


Mr. Speaker, I rise today in recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pride in San Francisco and to pay tribute to the memory of Jon D. Cook, the first openly-gay San Francisco police officer to lose his life in the line of duty.

This weekend marks the 32nd annual San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Celebration entitled, "Be Yourself, Change the World!" This is our time to celebrate San Francisco's proud history of advocacy for equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons and to recognize the important contributions the LGBT Community makes to our City and to our nation.

Officer Jon Cook's legacy is an important example of such contributions. On June 12, 2002, Officer Cook was killed when his police car collided with another police car as they both pursued a suspected violent felon. Before joining the force, he worked as a research scientist searching for a cure and treatments for HIV/AIDS. He also served honorably as a lieutenant in US Air Force intelligence with a top-level security clearance.

Officer Cook touched the lives of many people in San Francisco. More than 2,000 attended his funeral mass, including friends and family members, over 600 fellow officers from throughout Northern California, and hundreds of residents and community leaders from the Castro and Mission districts that he served. His fellow policemen and women remember him as a dedicated officer who always wanted to be at the scene; residents remember with gratitude the way he looked out for them. "Jon loved being a cop," recalled his domestic partner of three years, Jared Strawderman. "He loved serving his community. He loved being in situations where he could help people. He wanted to go to where the trouble was and fix the problem."

To his parents Jon Sr. and Rosemary Cook; his siblings Bonnie, Brian, Wayne, Jamie and Gary; partner Jared Strawderman; and his many nieces and nephews; we share your loss, and we are grateful for the service Jon provided to the people of San Francisco.

The contributions of Officer Cook and so many others in San Francisco bring into sharp focus the need for basic protections of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons. As we mourn the loss of Jon Cook, we also reaffirm our commitment to the fight for equal rights for all and our belief in the beauty of our diversity.

I wonder what the average vote is more responsive to: national security, tax policy, or transgender issues?

Thanks.

Her "defense" should she be foolish enough to mount one would be that she was honoring a police officer killed in the line of duty.

But the question for Comrade Pelosi is:

When did you last mention the sexual preference of a hetero police officer and honor them for that?

In Pelosi's world vice is virtue and virtue is vice.

This is part of the Marcusian strategy to destroy the ethical foundations of Western civilization.

I bet Pelosi marches in the Gay Pride parades in SF surrounded by freaks. Hopefully RNC will have the video cameras rolling.

Good point. My first thought reading this was "do we really want to be slamming her for honoring a cop that was killed in the line of duty?". Regardless of his personal life, that could (and perhaps should) backfire hard. This question is a fair one.

This woman is daughter of old Tom D'Alesandro, one of the most corrupt mayors in Baltimore history. Bribery was a way of life in Baltimore. I hope the republicans tie that tin can on her.

Whoa, all I see here is that she is honoring a gay cop who died in the line of duty. I've got no problem with honoring a cop who died trying to catch a felon. Whether or not he was gay has nothing to do with it...I understand her focus on it was his sexual orientation, but the bottom line is she was honoring a gay dead cop.

To give you an idea of how they think in SF, following is report from newspaper there. It is about the event she rose to praise in her speach. ....and you think the Wellstone memorial was an isolated event......

A death -- and new respect
By Allen White
Special to The Examiner

THE FUNERAL MASS for San Francisco Police Officer Jon Cook, and the procession that followed through the city's Castro district, were defining moments in The City's history. With his death, Officer Cook became the first openly gay member of the San Francisco Police Department to die in the line of duty.

Monday, San Francisco's greatness was again defined by its enormous capacity to share collective tears of joy and sadness. An extended family that spread across this city, through eyes moistened by emotion and pain, saw a historic drama unfold.

As Jared Strawderman walked behind his lover's casket into San Francisco's Roman Catholic Cathedral, the love between these two men was acknowledged with stark honesty and clarity.

Without question, Jon and Jared loved each other very, very much. It was a love not hidden. That reality was celebrated, not obscured.

The significance of San Francisco police officers, gay and straight, forming an honor guard with other law enforcement personnel must never be understated. By their presence, tears and statements, police officers clearly, and without ambiguity, identified Officer Cook as a good cop. Whether he was a gay cop or a cop who was gay no longer matters.

The directive of Police Chief Fred Lau for the body of Officer Cook to be taken through the Castro was an incredible human rights statement. Gay athletes had the opportunity to join with business people, lawyers, doctors, carpenters and even the homeless to mourn and celebrate their hero.

As police cars with sirens and red lights cleared Castro Street, every gay man, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered person on that street knew, without question or hesitation, that Officer Cook was their guy. There was also the sense that the walls of discrimination that stood for centuries were crumbling under the force of community love, respect and acceptance.

As San Franciscans reached out to share comfort and concern for Officer Cook's the family, Nicholas Ferrando, another good cop who struggles to stay alive, was not forgotten. More than a few have faith to believe healing will come to this 25-year-old. The other officers injured in last week's accident, David Lee, 22, and Michael Celis, 34, have been treated and released.

These four police officers, one gay and three straight, represent a new generation of law enforcement. They, like many San Franciscans, know little of past violence that contrasts so sharply with today's events.

In 1969, angry drag queens rioting against police harassment at Stonewall, a Greenwich Village bar, lit the spark fueling the contemporary gay movement. In 1978, Dan White, a former cop, assassinated Harvey Milk, San Francisco's first openly gay supervisor, and Mayor George Moscone. The following May 21, riots erupted as the verdict for two murders was reduced to manslaughter. That prompted police beatings in the Castro.

Together, these incidents caused the change from which emerged an international sexual liberation movement. Forces fell in place to end the fear that, without provocation, police could and would use their power to destroy anyone they perceived to be homosexual.

The election of George Moscone brought more change. Openly gay men and lesbians were appointed to city commissions.

Because of their numbers, lesbians, gay men and a transgendered police officers are now being taken for granted by some. They shouldn't be. Gay police haven't gained total community acceptance and homophobia, like racism, continues to surface in law enforcement agencies everywhere.

A meaningful option might be for the community to demand Officer Cook be honored as grand marshal of the 2002 San Francisco Pride Parade, that he be represented by his lover, Jared, and that every gay, lesbian or transgendered police officer in America be invited to join him to march down Market Street. That, in fact, would be the truest demonstration of gay pride.

Monday was a day for sadness because a person so appreciated and loved is dead; 38 is too young to die. Yet, the people of San Francisco witnessed a plateau of respect that is truly incredible. A police officer who gave his life in the line of duty also gave the gift of validation to a community who cares.

Thank you, Officer Cook.

international sexual liberation movement.

Good find.

That was precisely the doctrine Marcuse advocated in his commie classice "Eros and Civilization".

Pelosi and a large number of folks in SF dream of a future in which private property is abolished, marriage is abolished, and the landscape is one big public bath house. Then we will all be "liberated".

Since you have an interest in the details of Nancy D'Alesandro Pelosi, you should certainly read my latest column. Unlike Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Pelosi does not use her maiden name. If she did, folks might look up the history of the D'Alesandro family in Baltimore City in which father and son were consecutive Mayors.

The D'Alesandro machine was all powerful including the prosecutors and the courts. A rape charge (when the father was Mayor) against the son, was squashed. Corruption charges against the son were suppressed when he was Mayor. Those two are, respectively, Pelosi's father and brother.

I was there. When I pointed out as a candidate for the City Council in Baltimore that the corruption charges were still open against Councilman Mimi DiPietro, the next day the prosecutor went into court and dismissed those charges.

the FOUNDING FATHERS UNLEASHED

  Our Constitution provides the legitimate foundations of this country as a free nation that is of the people and by the people but, we must read beyond it words and read it's authors words and thoughts in order to understand the warnings they have sent through generations to it's application in todays world.
 




warning...

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion...Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
- John Adams, October 11, 1798



warning...

"Have you ever found in history, one single example of a Nation thoroughly corrupted that was afterwards restored to virtue?... And without virtue, there can be no political liberty....Will you tell me how to prevent riches from becoming the effects of temperance and industry? Will you tell me how to prevent luxury from producing effeminacy, intoxication, extravagance, vice and folly?..."

- John Adams, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson

You don't get it do you... the cop is a prop. Take an honorable profession and use it to lend creedence to argueably one of the most destructive lifestyles a human could lead. You use the honor of one to gloss over the depravity of the other. Go to a SF bath house and see if you can pick out those of honorable professions, but be carful, you may get stuck...

I understand the argument, and I agree she is using the death of an honorable police officer to further a leftist agenda. But using this as an example of how she is out of touch with America, in my opinion, will not resonate with most people.

People see that a cop died in the line of duty, and oh by the way he was gay. She emphasizes the gay part, but most people, I believe, will emphasize his actions as a police officer. I know I would. Frankly, I don't care if a particular cop is gay--if he is taking crooks off the street, he's doing his job.

I guess I'm saying there is PLENTY to attack Pelosi on--this one is not politic--it won't sell in Peoria to just plain folks who'll just see a cop who got killed chasing down a crook. Just mho.

Everyone should note that Pelosi doesn't list her membership in the Progressive Caucus (of which she is a member) anywhere on her government website, although she lists other caucuses that she is in. She omits this information on purpose because the Progressive Caucus has demonstrable Marxist ties- the Democratic Socialists of America.

dosen't list her membership in the Progressive Caucus

So in this thread so far we have also learned she is prepared to hide her pro-perversion agenda behind the body of a dead police officer. We now know that she is hiding her corrupt family background in Baltimore.

She and Hillary are obviously going to have a running battle to fnd out who has more skeletons in their closet.

Just when you think the Rats have hit bottom they go crashing through the floor down to the next level of evil.

Any dead bodies in this woman's past?

Considering the success of the Wellstone Funerally, the Democrats might like to hold their next televised convention at the Exotic Erotic Ball.

Another thing: Do you suppose Nancy and other key Democrats might like to participate in the Gay Pride Parade? They could get together a float to ride on. Some of the Dems could wear those leather jocky strap kinda things and hump each other. You know how they do in the parade.

Just a couple of suggestions.

Whoa, all I see here is that she is honoring a gay cop who died in the line of duty.

The honor is due a man who died in the line of duty as a cop.

The "gay" aspect is wholly irrelevant except to deceptively and parasitically create the appearance that private sexual dysfunction and perversion are honorable and heroic.

Thanks for that info. A little web searching turned up some information about her family (naturally in a puff piece as part of an awards ceremony) ;-)

Citation for the Honorable Nancy D'Alessandro Pelosi '62 Nancy Pelosi holds the position of Democratic Whip in the U.S. House of Representatives.  In that capacity, she is the highest-ranking woman in the history of the Congress.  Her role gives her a position of national prominence as a voice for her party and a leader on the economy, human rights, education and funding for medical research.             Although she now hails from California, where she represents that state's 8th Congressional District, covering most of San Francisco, she has local roots here as well as family background of distinguished public service in the greater Washington-Baltimore area.  She graduated from Trinity College in Washington, her father, Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr., served as a member of Congress for five terms and as Mayor of Baltimore for twelve years, and her brother, Thomas, was also Mayor of that city.  Before her own election to Congress in 1987, Nancy Pelosi and her husband, Paul, raised fie children and they now have five grandchildren.  Since her October 2001 victory in highly competitive election for the Whip position, the second-ranking leadership position among House Democrats, her performance has gained the respect and administration of her party colleagues.  A Republican member of the House describes her as "110 percent female and 110 percent tough pol," while a fellow Democrat uses the words "gracious but organized" to characterize her leadership style.  She also displays a welcome sense of humor.  She campaigned for the leadership post in a series of weekly meetings and well attended, in part due to the catered food.  As she observed "I'm Italian.  We eat first."             Representative Pelosi is a firm believer in grass roots politics, and she was a staunch and effective leader in the House's passage of campaign finance reform in an effort to enhance the confidence of the American people in the political process.  In addition to her leadership role, Nancy Pelosi serves as the top Democratic member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, as a member of the House Appropriations Committee, and chairs the congressional working group on China.  Among her other important achievements, she has played a major role in doubling the budget or the National Institutes of Health during the past five years and in gaining increased funding for AIDS and breast cancer research.             In addition to her accomplishments in public service, Nancy Pelosi and her family are active and loyal members of the Georgetown family.  Three of her children (Christine, BSFS '88; Jacqueline, BA Government '89; and Paul Jr., BA History '91 and MBA/JD '95) are GU alumni, as are her husband Paul's brother and nephew, and Paul himself is a 1962 graduate of SFS and serves on the Board of Visitors.             Georgetown University is proud to honor a national leader and role model by conferring on Nancy Pelosi the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, Honoris Causa.

"Grassroots politics"... To the D'Alesandro's that meant a string to everyone possible via patronage, contracts, unions or just plain old money. In other words the most votes money can buy. I lived in Baltimore during the "reign" of old D'Alesandro. Not a dollar changed hands but what he had an interest.

Does this officers sexual orientation somehow make his work as a cop better? Does it make his death more tragic? Does it mean his work in life was more important? Obviously not, except to liberals.

Ask your Democrat friends, "Is this your party."

If they had any brains, their answer would be straight out of Lesley Gore:

"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
You would cry, too, if it happened to you"

Of course, if they had any brains, they wouldn't be democrats.
