The little respect I had for Michelle Obama has been tossed out the window. I mean, she really went there:
Michelle Obama won a standing ovation on Thursday when she paid a campaign visit to gay and lesbian Democratic activists to promote her husband Barack Obama’s presidential quest.I've made it no secret here of how offended I get when the supposed hardships of a chosen, alternative lifestyle gets equated with century old methods of discrimination faced by Blacks. Yet, black liberals have been suckered hook, line and sinker for years by a white, liberal establishment that has piggybacked every single move made by the Martin Luther King Jr.-led civil rights movement of the 60's in order to create their own immoral agenda. Race is an immutable characteristic, therefore you can look at a man and know he is black; sexuality is a behavior, therefore you have to make an effort to tell people that you’re gay. Race and sexuality are not the same. Homosexuality is a perversion and in a day and age when blacks continue to face huge levels of discrimination on so many different levels, it's an insult for an educated Black woman to stand up and compare a movement that arose from the Middle Passage, chattel slavery, decades of Jim Crow laws to a couple of days of riots at a NYC inn. Michelle Obama is a sell-out.
Obama, appearing at a dinner meeting of the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Council of the Democratic National Committee, cited her husband’s efforts to fight discrimination and promote equal rights for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered people.
She said he supported a complete repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, which only recognizes marriages between men and women and upholds states’ rights not to honor same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. He also opposes a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward gays in the U.S. military and was against a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, she added.
He supports full family and adoption rights for gay and lesbian couples and believes the federal government should not stand in the way of states that opt for domestic partnerships, civil unions or civil marriage, she said. The Illinois senator opposes same-sex marriage.
“Barack believes that we must fight for the world as it should be, a world where together we work to reverse discriminatory laws like DOMA and ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’” she said. “The world as it is should be one that rejects discrimination of all kinds.
