The 2012 Presidential Election: An Analysis of Narcissistic Vermin and Posturing GOP Clowns

Conway here; greetings, felicitations and all that happy horseshit.

This post is dedicated to an analysis of the most vexing of events, that of the US Presidential elections, your friend Conway offering a critique of each candidate in as concise a manner as possible. A detailed, comprehensive analysis of each is unnecessary, as those capable of critical thinking already know that an honest politician is about as rare as a goddamn Catholic priest who isn't a drunk or pedophile.

The soft-palmed, filthy rich, elitist, aloof bastards running this benighted dump, for example, Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi, along with all the other posturing political crooks, must fall on their backs and horselaugh at the collective gross stupidity of the American citizenry as they continually fall for more carefully crafted Goebbelsian rhetoric. That noted, I find it most disgusting that nearly every one of the Presidential candidates are little more than amoral, self-serving, greedy, do nothing cocksuckers who have never really worked one day in their entire goddamned lives.

To begin, on one hand, we have the Presidential incumbent, Barack Hussein "Barry" Obama, a preening, smoothtalking, narcissistic nigger ward heeler that announces his lies from a TelePrompTer like the scripted, rehearsed phony he is. Our current presidential Head Gangster is a delusional megalomaniac so inept that he couldn't run a fucking trash compactor properly, let alone a nation. On the other hand, we have a pack of cap-toothed, smiling Republican crooks, looking to supplant that buffoon and take the exalted position of Head Gangster. All are more concerned with appearance than substance, exactly like the current asshole smelling up the White House. No wonder I don't bother to vote anymore; I'd accomplish more by watching my fingernails grow, observing paint dry, or by pissing into the wind.

Always calling a spade a spade, I submit for all who read that the head moolie, Barack Hussein "Barry" Obama, is so fucking delusional that he actually believes his own lies, along with viewing his myriad failures as successes, while he stares at himself lovingly in a mirror for hours on end. Possessing an unparalleled talent for transmuting gold into lead, everywhere jackanapes Obama turns he fucks up, and afterward resorts to blaming others for his stupidity, e.g., Republicans, corporations, "racists", "extremists", and "mean-spirited haters". Never taking responsibility for his ineptitude, Obama blames others for blunders so utterly devastating and ridiculous that it makes the doddering, bible-beating jackass Jimmy Carter appear as a competent statesman. And to think this obtuse moron is running for re-election, if he were half the man he claims to be he'd admit defeat and resign for the good of the nation.

Alas, Barry Hussein, a vindictive creature suffering from gross delusions of grandeur, won't ever do that. I wouldn't be a goddamn bit surprised that he and his minions will manufacture a fiscal or political "crisis" of some sort, so this puerile abomination of a hairless talking simian can suspend the Presidential elections and crown himself as the despotic dictator he aspires to be. Should this happen, expect this neurotic megalomaniac to plainly state via the media that no other man living has his superb wisdom and depth of knowledge, solemnly stating that the nation needs his and only his beneficent guidance, laughingly depicting himself as a modern day Marcus Aurelius.

Now to our Republican contenders, for the most part a group of reprehensible freaks who belong more in a circus sideshow than any sort of election; the major figures are: Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum.

Starting alphabetically, Michele Marie Bachmann is a smiling, clueless, air headed twat with a bad case of foot in mouth disease, who wished a rotting corpse named Elvis Presley happy birthday on the anniversary of his death. Not that such inane trivia is really important mind you, but if she's that fucking dumb what other gaffes is she capable of? Cute, sure, for a makeup covered, botox-injected, menopausal old bag in her fifties, but she makes Sarah "Paul Revere" Palin, another cute, aging, plastic moron, appear as an absolute genius.

Now don't for one goddamned moment think that I am a misogynist who believes women are unfit for political office - in the past I did in fact vote for several twats, along with a few niggers, a spic, and I once even voted for a queer, of the cocksucking variety. I didn't and still don't give a shit if a politician is male or female, black, white or yellow, gay or straight - if I agreed with their platforms I voted for them. I doubt seriously that most readers can make that claim; I guess I'm not half the intolerant bastard that I seem to be.

Moving on, Herman Cain, by all accounts, is an Uncle Tom reminiscent of darkie Alan Keyes. I actually like both of these men, but no self respecting boot-lipped jungle bunny would ever vote for Cain, "'cuz he be too mafukkin white". I am quoting verbatim an overheard description of him uttered by a local shiftless jig with the same IQ as the beat up ghetto blaster he held in his hand, while I was occupied fueling my beat up old junker. Whiteys of all stripes will never vote for him either; guilt-ridden liberal crackers viewing him as an Uncle Tom, and conservative honkys dismissing him as just another uppity nigger. A shame really, considering Cain's political outlook is more in line with the traditional American conservative stance. As a Republican of the Paleozoic species, Herman Cain passes this particular litmus test better than most.

Newton Leroy "Newt" Gingrich is an articulate, hypocritical whoremonger and malignantly arrogant bastard; an intransigent ideologue that feels only his worldview is correct - aside from his whoredom, he is a diametrical bookend of Obama. An intelligent man, many of Gingrich's professed ideas are acceptable, but, considering his gross hypocrisy and propensity for lying, don't count on any of them being implemented if he is elected, which will never happen in any universe.

Jon Meade Huntsman, Jr. is a smoothtalking Mormon hypocrite in the unbridled race for Head Gangster; he is a high school dropout, a millionaire, and a fence-rider. He is also a personal friend of the narcissistic eightball, how that can be considered a positive credential is open for debate. You see, inept narcissist Barack Hussein Obama is a proven endorser of infanticide, citing from his questionable record in Illinois, and how anyone like Huntsman, who is considered an adherent of the Mormon faith, can befriend such a disgusting piece of vermin is beyond me. I'm a godless atheist and I think abortion is cold-blooded murder, so how can a pseudo-Christian Mormon hypocrite befriend an amoral nigger like Obama, who believes it is perfectly alright to slaughter newborn infants? That said, Jon Huntsman is hardly an exemplar of Presidential material, but giving the current electorate of brain-dead, television addicted American fools, he has as much of a chance as any of these plastic, makeup covered clowns.

Ronald Ernest "Ron" Paul is the only candidate who actually has a grasp on the nation's financial problems and he offers tenable solutions, but he has the personality of a cobra and is about as electable as Charles Manson. If he even gets near the White House, the powers that be, i.e., the current crop of elected gangsters, will have him eliminated. His life an open book, simple character assassination will not work in Paul's case, so they'll remove him via an engineered "stroke", or "heart attack", or by having his head blown off his shoulders by a "terrorist" for the good of all involved. You see, Ron Paul is too damn much of a threat to the status quo, and even if he did manage to get himself elected without being killed beforehand, he would find that he would not be able to accomplish much of anything, as the College of Crooks called Congress would thwart his every move. Too bad the angry, grimacing old fart doesn't realize that and drops out of the running for Head Gangster; perhaps he is senile.

James Richard "Rick" Perry is real piece of work, a wealthy, dictatorial creature that is a legend in his own mind, but not to anyone capable of critical thinking. A smoothtalking piece of utterly contemptible vermin, a religious fanatic, and a two-faced hypocrite, Rick Perry is a prima-facie example of why I don't care at all for most "Christians" of any sort. He also appears to be a self-convinced, vengeful individual who feels that the guilty are guilty, even if the evidence points to innocence - just ask Cameron Todd Willingham, if there actually is such a thing as afterlife and you can find a medium who isn't a goddamn fraud. You see, hypocrite Perry had Mr. Willingham executed in 2002, over the protests of experts, lawyers, and other assorted interested folks, who felt the fire that Willingham was accused of setting at his home - the conflagration resulting in the deaths of his two children - actually happened due to accidental causes. What does Perry care - as a "Christian", even if he made a mistake by executing an innocent man, good old gullible Jeebus, invisible King of Fools and Savior of no one, will forgive him.

In addition, Rick Perry, a delusional, self impressed megalomaniac like Barack Obama, also thinks he has the right to order teenaged girls in Texas to be forcibly injected with the HPV vaccine "Gardasil", courtesy of his good friends at Merck and Company, Incorporated. Who in the fuck does this vicious, goddamned shit-for-brained bastard think he is, telling others what to do with THEIR BODIES - exposing young women to dreadful side effects like arthritis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, paralysis, seizures, unconsciousness and DEATH? 

This two-faced piece of despicable shit also LOVES illegal aliens, i.e., beaners, refusing to erect a fence to protect the Texas-United States border, and supplements these interloping spics with largesse stolen from legally residing American taxpayers of all colors and creeds. Further, Rick Perry supported the disgusting, Elmer Gantryesque, beady-eyed, bald-headed charlatan Albert Gore in 1988, so how can anyone trust a fence-riding shithead like he is - anyone who would vote for this despicable, verminous bastard deserves whatever they get from him, should this hypocritical, pious, superstitious talking ape manage to get himself elected President.

Willard Mitt Romney is yet another smoothtalking Mormon hypocrite who says one thing and does another. His detractors sometimes refer to him as a RINO (Republican In Name Only). In other words, he is a flaming liberal masquerading as a conservative. He also brought the state of Massachusetts "Romneycare", another idiotic governmental debacle and glaring example of interference in the personal lives of the citizenry. I wouldn't be surprised if this superstitious asshole gets the nomination and goes on to run against the narcissistic eightball for the exalted position of Head Gangster, otherwise known as "President" of this decadent, moribund nation, the United States.

Richard John "Rick" Santorum is a Catholic, bead-rattling wop hailing from Pennsylvania; his fiscal politics are illuminating, but his social stance renders him unelectable, considering this nation is so fucking decadent from top to bottom that the Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah appear as exemplars of morality. Among Santorum's detractors is a limp wristed, dick-smoking "journalist" and loudmouthed fairy mick named Dan Savage, who decided to act like an obtuse, name calling child in 2002 and made sport of the man's surname, defining "Santorum" as a mixture of K-Y jelly and shit; i.e., a byproduct of two queers assfucking. How nice; why is it that queers and their ilk are fascinated by shit, piss, cum and other unsavory body products? I've said it before - nothing at all can be done about fags, dykes or mixed-up bisexual switch-hitting freaks, cocksucker Dan Savage is a prime example.

"Women's rights" advocates also despise Mr. Santorum due to his pro-life stance. Really, why does he care - cunts who slaughter their own brats via abortion are unfit mothers anyway. I submit that such women are actually doing their unborn children a favor by killing them, saving their offspring the experience of having to endure such an odious progenitor. Further, I cannot understand why some people, e.g., the far left and the far right, are obsessed over such things as queerdom and abortion. In addition, Santorum also supports the creation of the American Police State by dunderhead Bush, and is a staunch supporter of the "Patriot Act" which has turned the entire United States into a fucking jail. How can a man who supposedly loves freedom and liberty support such an execrable and draconian set of laws? Answer: Because this two-faced Janus a fucking hypocrite, that's how!

Anyway, Rick Santorum should have been more pragmatic and kept his big mouth shut regarding matters like goofy, AIDS ridden cocksuckers, bull dykes and abortion. Had he done that, Santorum may have had a chance to capture and exploit the exalted position of United States Head Gangster. Alas, he didn't, so Santorum's fucked; he should simply pack it in and stop wasting everyone's time, including his own.

Lesser contenders in this idiotic race of amoral, opportunistic crooks include hopefuls Gary Johnson, Fred Karger, a cocksucker, Andy Martin, whose hatred of Obama is his best quality, Thad McCotter, Jimmy McMillan, another nigger, Tom Miller, Buddy Roemer and Vern Wuensche.

Gary Earl Johnson is a "libertarian" and "fiscal conservative"; in other words, he's a Ron Paul clone. Unelectable, considering the American citizenry is so goddamned stupid that it boggles the mind, and they seemingly WANT the United States to become a bankrupt, third-world nation where squalor is the norm and our elected betters reign over people like kings of a fiefdom. That said, if Gary Johnson even gets near the White House, the entrenched political gangster's devoted character assassinators will quickly appear - stating he's a Nazi, a communist, a member of the Ku Klux Klan, or a pedophile. If that doesn't work, I wager they'll claim he's a tax evader, and at last resort they'll simply have him killed and blame the entire affair on a "terrorist" from Borneo or some other such place. Isn't "democracy" wonderful? Aside from those scenarios, generally speaking, stupid, gullible American drones fall for form, not substance, so this guy is totally fucked, and will never get anywhere, politically speaking. Honestly, Mr. Johnson should stop wasting his time and return to the business of construction, which made him a whole shitload of dough.

Fred S. Karger is a "Log Cabin" Republican hebe faggot who has about as much of a chance of being elected as a snowball has of surviving a trip through a blast furnace. Karger is also a "gay rights" advocate, who desires to make cocksucking, assfucking and cuntlicking by those of the same sex to be accepted as a normative condition by the populace. Considering that perhaps 5% of the overall population is homosexual, that will never happen, ever.

Fred Karger also wants the Mormon Church to change its status on their collective condemnation of queers, and accuses them of being "intolerant". What Karger fails to realize is that Mormonism, like any religion, is an exclusive clique of superstitious talking simians who adhere to a particular worldview, and as such, have the right to believe in whatever the fuck they want to believe in, along with the "right to choose" those they wish to exclude from their group. Sorry Mr. Karger, but exclusionary policies with respect to religious belief is called FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION, and such views are protected by the goddamn First Amendment, whether you like it or not.

Really, why doesn't this flaming homo simply found his own goddamn church, if he feels the need to believe in and worship a non-existent big head in the sky? Then Karger can invite other "religious" fags and dykes to join him in "fellowship" at his ridiculous church of queers, so they can all feel "included" in the pathetic farce that is religion.

Oh well, so much for Fred Karger, perhaps that childish cocksucker Dan Savage will vote for him; now on to the next posturing Republican asshole.

Anthony Robert "Andy" Martin-Trigona despises Barack Hussein Obama almost as much as I do, and has even went so far as to declare the inept, narcissistic nigger a Moslem foreigner, and that his father was a communist agitator named Frank Marshall Davis. I honestly wouldn't be a goddamn bit surprised if Obama is indeed the bastard child of Davis or some other banana-lipped spearchucker, considering that his cunt mother was a coal burning honky slut with a bad case of jungle fever, and there are indeed some bizarre discrepancies as to the Head Gangster's actual origins. You see, there is that haunting birth certificate horseshit, along with a rather suspicious "Selective Service" registration document, and it is rather strange that a supposed native of the State of Hawaii carries a Connecticut Social Security number. However, calling the clueless eightball a Moslem is completely inaccurate, as Barack Hussein Obama is an atheist, like I am, along with being an absolute fucking hypocrite of the first degree. Aside from that, Martin's detestation of Obama, though admirable, is all he has to trade on, and that makes him unelectable.

Thaddeus George "Thad" McCotter, from what I have read, seems to be a conservative whose fiscal policies seem to make sense on the surface, but as a politician, he's probably just another lying fucking crook with so many skeletons in the closet that they are bursting through the jamb. Unknown and unelectable; even if he is honest, and finds support in his bid for Head Gangster, the cadre of entrenched political gangsters will make certain that he never reaches the White House, by employing good old-fashioned character assassination. You know, things like: he attended a Klan rally when he was five, or called someone a nigger when he was 14, or knocked up a slut when he was 17, or fucked his own mother at 20, etc, etc, etc. If that doesn't work, they'll shift into overdrive, and simply have his head blown off, JFK style, by a "terrorist".

James "Jimmy" McMillan III is a silly eightball who looks like a black Colonel Sanders. A Vietnam veteran, he mouths off about all sorts of things, especially the "the rent is too damn high". That said, McMillan is even less electable than Herman Cain, who will never be elected for anything.

Thomas J. "Tom" Miller is, unfortunately, a goddamn fool; a former flight attendant and middle class single father, his vision of the United States is totally incompatible with the views of the elected gangsters running this dying nation. If he makes any real inroads toward the exalted position of Head Gangster, look for him to be quickly character assassinated by the other crooks in the race, they possibly alleging that he smoked dope, or sucked dicks, molested children or sold drugs. Should that prove ineffective, there is always the JFK plan for the entrenched political gangsters to fall back to, eliminating him from the race permanently, afterward blaming the affair on a "terrorist". In other words, those vicious bastards will do ANYTHING to destroy an upstart outsider who has the audacity to dare to invade their exclusive, criminal clique of privileged, elitist human pigs. Miller's platform sounds good on the surface, but that's about all. Unknown and unelectable.

Charles Elson "Buddy" Roemer III, a former representative and governor, brought floating casinos to the State of Louisiana. That's about all this silly kraut ever did as governor; in his 2012 Presidential campaign he has proposed "campaign finance reform" as his key issue. He has also pledged to limit campaign contributions to $100 per person - is this guy brain-dead or what? At that rate I expect him to raise about $200,000 tops, and you need a hell of a lot more dough than that to BUY the American Presidency. I wager he should pull out all the stops, take anyone's money and campaign on the platform of "America Is Dying". Further, any clown who calls himself "Buddy", rather than "Charles" or perhaps "Charlie" suffers from personal identity issues, and is more than likely a two-faced glad-handing shithead who would promise anything, only to lose any election - even if he ran unopposed. 

Vernon E. "Vern" Wuensche is yet another outsider who will be quickly destroyed, using any means necessary, by the gangster clique if he even gets remotely near to winning the Republican Presidential nomination. They'll say that he smoked dope, fingered his sister, or had sex with animals - any of these should suffice to alienate the slack-jawed drones, even if such allegations are outright lies. Alternative plan "B" is the old standby - pull a JFK on him, then blame it on a "terrorist". His platform sounds good on the surface, but is probably little more than carefully packaged lies, considering he is vying for the exalted position of Head Gangster.

The analysis complete, from where I sit, there is no one at all to vote for, other than "none of the above". Unfortunately, that choice is not on the ballot anywhere in the United States of America. Not that it really matters, as this nation is in its death throes and headed toward insurrection or dissolution - it would take a miracle from a god to stop the inevitable, and I believe in neither miracles nor gods. If I manage to live through the coming debacle, I will laugh like a goddamned jackal, as I have stated for decades that the elected criminals are paving the way for their, and our, destruction. Enjoy the toboggan ride.

Regards,

Conway

Will the Chosen be involved in promoting Sin?

Protocol #5 states:

Moreover, the art of directing masses and individuals by means of cleverly manipulated theory and verbiage, by regulations of life in common and all sorts of other quirks, in all which the goyim understand nothing, belongs likewise to the specialists of our administrative brain. Reared on analysis, observation, on delicacies of fine calculation, in this species of skill we have no rivals, any more than we have either in the drawing up of plans of political actions and solidarity.


Protocol #5 also states:

“In order to put public opinion into our hands we must bring it into a state of bewilderment. By giving expression from all sides to so many contradictory opinions and for such length of time as will suffice to make the goyim lose their heads in the labyrinth, they will come to see that the best thing is to have no opinion of any kind in matters political, which it is not given to the public to understand, because they are understood only by him who guides the public. This is the first secret.”

Man Who Went on Hunger Strike to Protest Conditions Inside Tacoma's Northwest Detention Center Comes Home
by Ansel Herz • Jul 17, 2015 at 4:27 pm
  

Family members welcome Paulino Ruiz home at Sea-Tac Airport. KELLY O
A man who spent eight years behind bars for the crime of stealing a pack of cigarettes, according to his supporters, came home to his family late last night at Sea-Tac Airport. His name is Paulino Ruiz.

Ruiz is a member of Colectivo de Detenidos (Collective of Detainees), a group of prisoners at Tacoma's Northwest Detention Center who went on hunger strike last year to protest dire conditions within the jail. Authorities responded by threatening the protesters with solitary confinement and force-feeding. The Seattle Human Rights Commission recognized the bravery of the group in a ceremony last December.

Family members drove from Woodburn, Oregon, just south of Portland, to meet Ruiz at Sea-Tac. He arrived at the baggage claim area with nothing more than a small backpack.

"I kept fighting and knew that one day I could come out," he said, in between embracing family members and supporters who'd written him letters and publicized the hunger strike. "I'm going to go eat a big steak... I'm going to go to school... Hopefully I can be an advocate on this whole situation and just start my life all over again."

His attorney, Sandy Restrepo, who's based in the Seattle area, said Ruiz was recently on the brink of being deported. He flew in from New Mexico, where he'd been held in a processing center. Authorities released him, however, pending approval of a visa.



Paulino Ruiz, center, with his supporters and family, including his brother Abraham, far right. KELLY O
Abraham Ruiz, his older brother, recounted the conversation he had with an immigration agent:

"We told them that he made a mistake. I felt guilty for a while because I let him get to where he's at. I felt like it was my fault. I should have been a better brother. The guy that was signing the visa told me, 'It's your fault. Why is he here?' I told him, 'I was a young kid, too. We come from a troubled place. I'm more educated now, I got my school done... I have better tools to help him now. We're in a difference place now.'"

He said his little brother had been intoxicated and had walked out of a gas station in Woodburn with a pack of cigarettes without paying for them. That's what landed him in jail.

Abraham and Paulino emigrated from Michoacán, Mexico, at ages 11 and 3, respectively. "We saw people get shot all the time," Abraham said. "People don't realize where we come from and what we went through. I'm not blaming everything I did on my past, but it does have something to do with it. There are things that we went through that we don't like to talk about."

President Obama has been campaigning for criminal justice reform. "These are young people who made mistakes that aren't that different than the mistakes I made and the mistakes that a lot of you guys made," the president said during a visit to a federal prison in Oklahoma yesterday.

Abraham said family members back home in Oregon were texting him, asking him to send photos to prove that Paulino had really arrived.

"Tonight we celebrate this impossible victory, and tomorrow we keep fighting for the rest of our gente," wrote Restrepo, Paulino's attorney, in a Facebook post. Congressional quotas require Immigration and Customs Enforcement to fill 34,000 detention beds with people alleged to have violated immigration rules. Tacoma's Northwest Detention Center incarcerates about 1,000 people.

Vocal Point, TODAY at NOON Eastern on www.GraceNetRadio.com! Don't miss it. Jerry has a great lineup of guests!

Dr. Michael Brown
North Carolina is in the cross-hairs. Why? Because they dare to have a law stating that a man---even if he thinks he’s a woman, even if he wears a wig---should not go into the lady’s room, nor a girl’s locker room. Big business, rock stars, some politicians, and the Hollywood left are coming down hard on NC for this new law. Dr. Michael Brown---author, columnist, and Christian educator---joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the controversy and why the law is good. www.askdrbrown.org

Dr. Cal Beisner
Galileo, call your office! 16 states’ Attorney Generals are now trying to shut down and punish scientists who disagree with the thesis of man-made global warming (cleverly retitled “climate change”---clever because climate always changes---it’s called “the weather”). Dr. Cal Beisner, spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, joins Jerry Newcombe for this important story. www.cornwallalliance.org.
 
Matt Heffron
If you don’t like the message, shoot the messenger. David Deleiden is the 27-year old man who produced some investigative reports, documenting Planned Parenthood’s sale and trafficking of baby body parts. Now the Attorney General of California has ordered a raid on Deleiden’s home in a fishing expedition, where they seized many things, including his computer. One of David’s attorneys for the Thomas More Society is Matt Heffron; he joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss this case. www.thomasmoresociety.org

Dan Gainor
Pat Buchanan once said, “Christian bashing is a popular indoor sport.” ABC-TV is proving that correct right now with a terribly anti-Christian program called, “The Real O’Neals,” based on a very anti-Christian homosexual activist, Dan Savage. ABC wouldn’t dream of presenting people of other religions in such a negative light (nor should they), but they have no problem with incessant Christian-bashing, in this particular case, Catholic-bashing. Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss this program. www.mrc.org

#Transgender: Receving head? #transsexual #tranny
Surprising enough!
#sex #men #guy #transphobic #surprising


Special guest: Dan Savage
On a recent Savage Lovecast episode, a 26-year-old guy who identifies as cisgender and straight called me. He informed me and he'd been dating a transgender woman, and while her penis didn't bother him and he was "attracted to her naked or clothed or what have you," he didn't enjoy sucking her dick and wanted to know if that made him a bad person or if it made him "innately transphobic."

The man said he's always gone down on his partners in the past, but when he and his current partner fooled around, he found he didn't like "sucking penis" and wasn't sure how to bring it up to her or if he should just make himself do it anyway.

Monica: Alex has suggested that we try “something spicy” this weekend. I hope he doesn’t mean the Thing We Did in Palm Springs. It seemed like an exciting idea at the time, but I didn’t love it. Which is too bad because he clearly did. Now I will have to do the Thing again, just to be a good and giving partner. Dan Savage is a menace.

Alex: How did I end up having nontraditional sex when all I wanted was more tacos? I regret humoring Monica in Palm Springs.

Hillary Rodham Clinton 
2011- United Nations Speech on Human Rights 
( Re-post )
"Incredible." "Brilliant." "Extraordinary." Those were the words used by a great many on Twitter and Facebook describing Hillary Clinton's speech on LGBT rights in Geneva yesterday to the United Nations Human Rights Council and President Obama's memorandum tying foreign aid to nations' records on LGBT rights. More than a few LGBT social networkers described themselves as being "in tears" upon hearing the Clinton speech, and many lamented that Clinton was not president -- and they weren't giving up on that prospect. 

"It was an incredibly brave and brilliant speech that makes me proud to be an American," wrote one commenter, summing up the thoughts of many. "Hillary 2016!!"

There were quite a few dissenters as well, calling the administration's actions "lip service" heading into an election, and questioning why the president wasn't pushing harder in this country while pressuring foreign countries. Some pointed to Clinton's --- and the president's --- public opposition to marriage equality as a hypocritical position while they were lecturing other leaders about religion-based discrimination against LGBT people. 

"We need our politicians to stop policing the world and focus their efforts on fixing our homeland! I want equal rights and protection. AND I AM AN AMERICAN!! Talk is cheap and it is time for action!!" went one status update on Facebook.

Several prominent LGBT figures gave HuffPost Gay Voices their diverse reactions as well:

Dan Savage, author, columnist and founder of "It Gets Better" Project:

"The check I was planning to write to Obama's reelection campaign just acquired another zero."

Richard Socarides, president of Equality Mattters, former gay advisor to President Clinton:

"I thought Hillary gave a really groundbreaking and important speech, especially in the context of the international setting. But when you think of it, that speech would have worked perfectly here in the United States also, as it addressed so much of the right-wing craziness we have here, without even meaning to. It was very emotional for me, given my personal history working for her and President Clinton.




I think on the policy itself, as set form in President Obama's commendable memorandum, it was not really a new policy as much as a much more focused and forceful articulation of what the administration via the State Department and US AID have been trying to do. But that is the essence of diplomacy. I'm thrilled at the administration's new found willingness to lean into these issues more boldly.

The final thing I'd say is that the speech itself reflected such a deep and emotional understanding of our issues as gay people as to really astound. We rarely see this level of empathy and connection."

Urvashi Vaid, former executive director of National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, currently director of the Engaging Tradition Project at the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law at Columbia Law School: 

"Secretary Clinton and President Obama have emphatically added sexual orientation and gender identity to US foreign policy in a meaningful way with the speech and a set of actions and commitments made yesterday. This is a breakthrough moment, achieved by a small group of US activists and allies who have worked quietly for several years to get the government here. The interesting thing is that the organized US movement is now less involved and engaged in advancing the human rights of LGBT people in other parts of the world than the US government."

Novelist, playwright, activist Sarah Schulman:

"Regarding Obama/Clinton LGBT foreign aid restrictions: What if a country has some gay rights but denies some residents fair trials, equal education and basic citizenship and employs racial supremacy, imposes one religious paradigm and runs illegal and immoral wars? Oh wait, that's us."

Bil Browning, founder The Bilerico Project:

"How can we leverage Secretary Clinton's speech and the administration's position to help our own citizens in places that can be just as bigoted and backwards as a third world country? The basic statement that LGBT rights are human rights is historic and affirming, but I also want to see some action locally. I want to see the United States live up to the grand ideals the administration is espousing.

In Indiana there are no bullying, employment, housing, or public accommodations protections. There is no relationship recognition. Indiana still doesn't have a state-wide hate crimes law even. There's no way to charge someone with a hate crime in Indiana; one county sheriff begged the feds to get involved in an anti-gay attack earlier this year to no avail because it didn't meet the requirements to be a federal crime. So when does the federal funding for Indiana get shut off until they improve their record on LGBT rights?"
