Conservative black leaders are calling President Barack Obamas likening of homosexual activism to the 1965 Selma to Montgomery civil rights march ridiculous and an insult. [ ]
I think its a problem not only for the president but for a lot of people, who are deeply misguided, to compare people who are protesting to have their behavior, their sexual behavior, recognized as some kind of civil right or for that matter civil virtue and compare that to people who are trying to vote, trying to go into a restaurant and get a sandwich, are trying to stay in a hotel overnight while they are on the road, trying to sit wherever they want to sit on public accommodation and transportation, (Bishop E.W.) Jackson said. [ ]
There was no hope in that rally, (Rev. Jesse Lee) Peterson said. Just think about this: 50 years later we have a black president in the United States of America. This country has done more than any other country to make amends for slavery in this country and yet there was no appreciation of that. There was no praise of America, thanking America for what it had done. It was as though it was still 1955. It was disgusting, it was evil, it was wrong. That rally was a klans rally, was no different than the KKK; it was a hate rally, a hateful rally.

Obama took the Wrong Speech,LOL
Also note the lack of American flags?
The Dems in Selma would have blocked a fag parade from crossing the bridge too.
Blacks you are sooooooo yesterday. You have been replaced as the chosen group to proclaim discrimination. The new “in thing” is the gays, bi-, and trans. These are the people who now get all the attention and Obama loves them.
Obama can’t keep himself from showing his true colors.
How is this any more ridiculous and insulting than anything else 0bama has said or done? Ridiculous and insulting defines 0bama’s persona from day one of his life.
Bet they still voted for him
The conservatives voted for him?
Those that did vote for him are obviously not conservative.
IMHO the media lies and calls them “conservative” just because they are protesting Obama now.
Back in ‘08 & ‘12 I bet they voted for him.
