Obama Pushes Gay Agenda, but Doesn't Want Us to Know It

In President Obama's placating speech Saturday night to 3,000 homosexualists at a black-tie gathering sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, he promised to normalize homosexuality and thus further polarize America, by destroying marriage (DOMA), freedom of employment (ENDA), and the military (Don't Ask, Don't Tell).

. . . and Hate Crimes legislation will be ready for Obama's signature in just days.

UPDATE 10/27/09: Obama signing ceremony for "hate crimes" law spotlights homosexualists, but kept in shadows away from American's eyes

-- From "Obama to End 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Military Policy" by Elizabeth Williamson, The Wall Street Journal 10/11/09

Introducing Mr. Obama, Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese told the crowd, "We have never had a stronger ally in the White House. Never."

Mr. Obama, who spoke for about 25 minutes, told the crowd that he came to the gay community with a simple message: "I'm here with you in that fight….My commitment to you is unwavering."

[President] Obama vowed to end the Clinton-era "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which allows homosexuals to serve in the military, as long as they don't disclose their sexual orientation or act on it.

Mr. Obama also appealed to Congress to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, which limits how state and federal bodies can recognize domestic partnerships in providing government benefits. He also vowed to press for legislation that would extend health and other employment benefits to domestic partners of workers. But he again didn't provide a timetable.

Any attempt to change government policy concerning gay people could further divide an already polarized Congress. The administration needs lawmakers' cooperation to pass legislation to overhaul the nation's health-care system, a top priority for Mr. Obama. The administration is also trying to secure passage of new financial-industry regulations and could turn to Congress to request more troops in Afghanistan.

The president also referenced the House's move this week to widen hate-crimes legislation and make it a federal crime to assault people based on their sexual orientation.

He offered a tribute to Matthew Shepard, a gay man who was tortured and killed 11 years ago in Wyoming because of his sexual orientation, igniting a nation-wide drive for expanded hate-crimes legislation.

Yes, President Obama gave credence to the misconception of the horrific murder of Matthew Shepard; ABC News “20/20” reported in 2004 that the killers were actually drug-using thugs intent on robbery, not hatred of homosexuals.

From "Gay Rights March" by Janie Lorber, The New York Times 10/11/09

The morning after President Obama’s “big gay speech” . . . gay rights advocates are preparing to march from the White House to the Capitol building this afternoon.

The demonstration, set to begin at noon, is intended to pressure Mr. Obama to make good on his campaign promises to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” There was plenty of speculation from gays and politicos alike that he might start one, or both, of these efforts from the podium Saturday night–neither happened.

“President Obama gets an “F” for his speech tonight on gay rights,” wrote Kevin Naff, the editor of The Washington Blade, a gay issues newspaper in Washington D.C., as he bemoaned the absence of a timetable for Mr. Obama’s pledges. “This wasn’t so much a policy speech as a recitation of old campaign promises reheated for a breathless audience on its feet.”

“He’s the President, and so he ought to do much more,” wrote Nathanial Frank of the Palm Center, a research center that focuses on gays in the military at the University of California at Santa Barbara. “But until he does, he should be sharing our stories with the world, to help make it clear why equal rights matter–to gays and non-gays alike.”

The White House apparently knows that the vast majority of America does NOT support the Gay Agenda, and so . . .

From "Why Didn't White House Put Out Obama Gay Rights Speech?" by Steve Clemons, Publisher of "The Washington Note" 10/11/09

The White House, thus far, has nothing about the President's speech on its main [web]site. Nothing at "Speeches and Remarks."

And even on the official White House Blog, there is a suspicious gap between an entry yesterday titled "Happy Birthday Bo!" and a one-minute-past-midnight posting on the President's weekly address on health care.

What's the issue here? Why is this Obama public statement being treated differently from other major statements he makes?

This is meant to be a friendly critique -- but while the gay community at the HRC dinner was enormously enthusiastic that Barack Obama was the first President since Bill Clinton in 1997 to speak at its annual event, we don't want the important remarks the President gave hidden so as not to make the weekend news cycle.

These liberals just don't "get it." They're out of touch with Americans.
