Hey, at least he wasn’t crucified.

An Academy Award doesn’t give him immunity, but having the innate dignity of a being a fellow human being should have precluded this situation.
KarenS1 commented on the blog post Rev. Irene Monroe: Obama linking Selma to Stonewall divides black community
People have hated women, LGBT folks, Jews, blacks, 1st Americans, the Irish, the Chinese, the Japanese (remember the internment camps of WW2?) and so many other groups. It’s oppression, period. Likewise, people have resisted with wars, with peace, with emigration, with patience, with marches and pride parades, with solidarity, and with education.
The only thing I see as a fitting response to oppression is resisting. But if you push someone down, you are an oppressor, regardless of whether you yourself resisted oppression or not. Period. I don’t care if you were at Selma, or at Stonewall, or Mila 18 for that matter. If you are pushing someone down, you are pushing hate, and thus doing evil. Don’t do it.

Rather than boycott the establishment…first try making it the newest LGBT hangout. En masse. It’ll drive him nuts!
Definitely. The British had offered emancipation to slaves in exchange for joining the Crown Forces. Many had taken them up on it, far more than with the Continental Army. When the Brits departed, a lot of these African-Brits were left here, and their emancipations were not recognised. Bad faith lead to a potentially very dangerous situation in the South.
Especially First American rebellions, which were really resistance movements against encroaching Europeans.
Article 3, section 3 of the US Constitution states:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
More likely, our nutcakes will be guilty of murder in the first degree, or felony murder, perhaps. But if they do it with a certain kind of style, then yes, they could be guilty of treason.

All he would have had to do was collect a pay check, just like the last sock puppet Republican president. What’s not to love?
