White House: Gays Not Welcome at Military Families Event

Tuesday, April 12, 2011


Michele Obama and Jill Biden launched their “Joining Forces” initiative to “support and honor America’s service members and their families” today. The two women, along with President Obama and Vice President Biden, will make remarks at the White House in conjunction with the kickoff of the event.

However, Ms. Obama’s and Ms. Biden’s “Joining Forces” bars gays and lesbians civilian representatives from today’s festivities.

Alexander Nicholson, Executive Director of Servicemembers United, who represents gay and lesbian troops and veterans said:

“It is rather unfortunate that both East Wing and West Wing staff have refused to allow a representative of gay military families to even be in the room at an event that is supposed to honor their commitment and sacrifice.”

Kristina Schake, Communications Director for the First Lady, sternly explained the discriminatory decision this way in a terse email to CBS News:

“The President has been crystal clear that the Administration is moving forward with the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ quickly and efficiently. However, it still remains the law. The White House, including the First Lady and Dr. Biden, look forward to working with the families of gay and lesbian service members after certification occurs and repeal goes into effect.”

So much for President Obama’s claims that he’s our “fiercest advocate.” The funny thing is, Obama thinks the LGBT community will support him in 2012. Methinks he’s in for a big surprise.

    I saw on ET that first & second lady was joining forces for Military families.
    What is happening to this country. Everyone is to be treated fairly. Stating that gays are not welcomed at Military Events. That is discrimination. Shame on you first lady. You will not get my help or many other people.

    As a straight but not narrow supporter of gay rights, I have to tell you I never bought Obama’s claim he was supportive of gay equality.

    I mean, he dragged his feet on DADT for two years and has gone silent on DOMA.

    Michele Obama should be ashamed of herself. Jill Biden too.

    Perhaps now, liberals will know they can’t trust Barack’s Nubian queen and the lies that flow forth from her horse-faced mouth anymore than they can trust the lies from Dr. Jill Biden.

    These women are loopy with ambition and realizing the dream of FOUR MORE YEARS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

    Who can blame them? Michelle Obama is known as a lazy bitch among WH staffers and Jill Biden drinks too much to be useful at public events. Fundamentally, both women are far more to the political right than their stupid husbands.

    I thought DADT had been repealed? What am I missing here?

    When Barry decided to go hang out with the Jesusistanis, he told you everything you need to know.

    And that was in 2007. I’m not sure he buys into it as much as he wants some people to think he does, but the evidence suggests that he’s a Chimpy-style “Christian” at heart.

    Michele Obama can go fuck herself. Jill Biden, too. Flush.

    Perhaps now, liberals will know they can’t trust Barack’s Nubian queen and the lies that flow forth from her horse-faced mouth anymore than they can trust the lies from Dr. Jill Biden.

    ROFL! So true, Massagatto! So true!

  8. Big Hank,

    I appreciate your support over the years.
