Obama, the Clinton Clone is back to business as usual. he’s inviting another right wing christian bigot, Louie Giglio, to give the benediction at his second inaugural. It seems that his ‘evolution’, just in time for the election is now a devolution. This is not an isolated incident. Another bigot heading up a rally or Inaugural for Obama is nothing new. It started in the summer of 2008 in the South with a string of cultist revival meetings disguised as Obama rallies featuring pig-bigot Donnie McClurkin and ended in the weeks before the election with Obama himself galvanizing the bigot vote to defeat marriage equality in California with his outrageously bigoted comment that he opposed marriage equality because ’gawd’s in the mix’ at pig-bigot Rick Warrens bigotfest and on MTV.
The contradiction between Obama’s promises and his bigotry which defeated marriage equality in California help recreate and invigorate the GLBT movement.
A note for all the Obama supporters during the recent election – this is not what we deserve but it is what we’re going to get because of those who enabled Obama and the Democrats ongoing bigotry, union busting and warmongering. The problem is not just another in a long series of alliances between Obama and religious right, the problem is that Democrats have had decades to pass ENDA and repeal DOMA and consistently refuse to do so even when they had huge majorities in Congress.
People who advocated voting for Obama and the Democrats or Romney and the Republicans voted for a mad dog warmonger whose policies murder civilians and waste the lives of GIs from Morocco to Indonesia. Which of them did you vote for?
People who advocated voting for Obama and the Democrats or Romney and the Republicans voted for either an ‘evolved’ bigot or a non-evolved bigot. Which bigot do you prefer?
People who advocated voting for Obama and the Democrats or Romney and the Republicans voted for scabs and union busters who want to dismantle Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security, who approved of mass foreclosures and who want to impose Greek style austerity on working people to make the rich much richer. Which of these corporate scabs caught your fancy and got your vote?
Democrats are Republicans in drag. Period. Full Stop. We won’t advance until we leave them in the dust.
