Gay donors now pressing for top spots for LGBTs in Obama administration
The Washington Post ^ | November 9, 2012 | Emily Heil

Posted on 11/10/2012 1:16:32 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Various supporters of President Obama — the ones who pulled out their wallets and turned out their constituencies for his reelection — will soon be coming to call at the White House.

Knock, knock...

Hey, it’s the Human Rights Campaign, which wants to see a second Obama administration make gay rights an even bigger priority than it did in the last four years.

HRC president Chad Griffin told our colleague Ned Martel the day after the election that his organization would love to see an openly gay Cabinet secretary and an openly gay ambassador to a G-20 nation. Both would be firsts (David Huebner, who’s gay, is ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa, but the HRC wants one of the big-deal countries). Griffin says there are plenty of qualified candidates out there — enough to fill up a binder or two. “Our government, particularly in this administration, looks like America,” he says. “And it’s important to have a cabinet that looks like America.”

In not-unrelated news, gay money was a key to Obama’s fundraising success. A dozen members of his national finance team are gay, and we’re hearing that they collectively outraised other “affinity groups” — categories like “Latinos” or “trial lawyers” — represented on the team.

Money aside, gays even can make the argument that they handed Obama the election: according to exit polling, 5 percent of voters identified themselves as gay, and 76 percent of those voters supported the Democratic ticket. Of voters who didn’t identify as gay, only 49 percent voted for Obama.

There’s a grand tradition of presidents rewarding their biggest donors with choice ambassadorships. And Obama would have plenty of gay donors (like power couple Michael Smith, the famed decorator, and HBO exec James Costos, who were among his biggest bundlers) to choose from...

Implying, of course, that they raised all that money from gay donors. Which would be quite a feat, as only about 2% of the population is gay (might be a little less, but you know what I mean).

I keep thinking of the old saying Give them an inch and they will take a mile.

Well, hell, why not. The majority of people voted for this, so I say to Obama, “let it all hang out”.

Go for it. Let’s have a gay orgy at the White House for Christmas.The Government can pay for the Viagra and Ecstasy.

Think about how corrupt DC must really be today.....that someone who is a campaign donor would want a Federal job there.

At one point in time NOBODY wanted to live in DC.

Washington, DC-—composed of offended vaginas, carpet munchers, misplaced arrogant dicks and all elected by a majority nation of asholes. No wonder why they call it—’inside the beltway’.... is that what they mean by moving to the center?

Unlike some narrow-minded people, I see a role for them to play in overseas diplomatic assignments, in “Arab spring” countries.

Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.

Hispanics reelected this worthless bum. They gave him 71% of their vote. without them Romney is the winner. They are the reason all we hear for the next four years is homo this, homo that. This immorality will surely lead to the destruction of this country. God will do the same this to this country that he done to Soddom and Gomorrah.

How about come to Jesus moment for Hispanics and blacks and for anyone else who voted for the Christian-hating Obama? How about putting your personal needs and wants to stand up for morals. Where was their Christianity? Are they only Christians as long it does not demand giving up their free stuff? I said that a lot of hispanics who call themselves Christians are going to have to answer to God for:
Voted to continue the mass murder of our pre-born children.
Voted for the corruption of our oldest & most important institution: marriage.
Voted for debt to continue to be piled on our kids’ backs.
Voted to distance ourselves from Israel.
Voted for forcibly taking money from workers to redistribute to those who can work but won’t, & to those who give campaign contributions.
Just as God stepped back & allowed ancient Israel to reject God as their King when they wanted a human king, so God has allowed us to choose evil. Unless we repent, we will be punished, just as ancient Israel was punished.

Every time I hear how hispanics and blacks are so pro-family and socially conservative, I feel like throwing up! Show me the proof. The proof is in the puddin’. There votes put the most anti-Bibical president in American history right back in the White House, inspite of him going to war with any and all things Christians!

You bunch of hypocritical freeloading heathens. You turned your back on the Lord, and God will not be mocked!

"What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.

It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.
 
The first stage being "demoralization".
 
It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism."

They only want to live in the white sections or in the white suburbs. No way they would racially “diversify” They are pandering hypocrites when it comes to their own lives.

Let them do that, glorify their behavior, and expose themselves to the public. They’ll overreach, as they always do. Next time the Evangelicals won’t stay home. And most Latinos won’t take kindly to the promotion of those kinds of “values”.

What was that article that came out this week that showed that over 50% of Hispanics believe in Homosexual marriage, 53% or so of all births are now out of wedlock, and that they have a great deal of compassion for the poor so they see the government has a roll in helping out by engaging in rampant theft of those who work, in order to give to them and let them live a slightly comfortable measly existence. Face it, the left has gone past the threshold and done to the Hispanic population what they did to the inner city black family and we see how that has worked out. The collapse is now inevitable, far to many people have turned away from God in this country, and of course immorality has a price to be paid once it sets in, God leaves us to are own devices. He has been trying to warn us, but only a few are listening anymore.
