Oh, Human Rights Campaign, you never cease to disappoint.
Moments after legislative action on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell seemed to be quite dead, HRC was quick to unleash their “new” strategy: Call on President Obama to end the discharges with an executive order and stop defending DADT in court.
Now that the big super-secret two-year strategy you and the White House cooked up has gotten us nothing—now you suddenly sign on to what the rest of us have been saying?
I’m sorry, but screw you.
I mean, ultimately, it’s great that you’re finally putting your weight and resources behind actually improving the lives of our gay and lesbian servicemembers. It’s great that you’re finally putting a little pressure on our fierce advocate, now that he has nothing more to offer you on this issue.
If you didn’t have evidence that HRC was setting the agenda for the movement in coherence with their own motives, this should do it.
We deserve better than smarmy rich white gay men who only take risks when they have nothing to lose.
