Here follows Lady Gaga’s remarks from her official website in on the Senate’s failure to repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy:
“Today was an enormous disappointment, for myself, and for many young American people. Not only because ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ was not repealed by our Senators, but moreover because legislative procedure is being abused to stop public business, public debates, from happening while America is watching. There was a debate today, we just didn’t get to watch it. Instead, it has been customary now for antiquated procedures and partisan politics to take precedence over debate, America’s needs, and today, sadly, over the needs of U.S. troops. I will keep fighting, I will not give up. I am passionate about the rights of the LGBT Community and SLDN and I will continue to activate as many young people as I can, and encourage them to get politically involved in their future.”
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Lady Gaga for your support. We can count on you more than our so-called “fiercest advocate” in the White House.
