June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month

So declares the transformative President of the United States:

Every generation of Americans has brought our Nation closer to fulfilling its promise of equality. While progress has taken time, our achievements in advancing the rights of LGBT Americans remind us that history is on our side, and that the American people will never stop striving toward liberty and justice for all.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2011 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand eleven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-fifth.

BARACK OBAMA

Thanks to Gerard for bringing this to our attention.

Sorry, but I could care less that the JEF declared June abhorrent behavior month. I don't celebrate it and I won't be celebrating it now that the JEF is pandering to the militant deviants that have helping destroy the nuclear family.

Don't forget that Obama is a strong supporter of traditional marriage and does not support gay marriage either. And Sarah Palin is soooo stoopid for ever suggesting otherwise.

Yep.

iwogisdead:

And, having actually thought about this for more than 30 seconds, I wonder:

Is Obama crazy?

It's easy to say that he's locking in some (very small, and odd) voting bloc, but, he had that bloc in any event. Why sign this thing? Does he think that this will somehow change things that are unjust?

Can't be. And can't be explained by mere stupidity. He must be crazy.

Wow, Obama proclaims the month which Stonewall and gay pride have been celebrated for 40 years as "LGBT Pride Month". How can he top himself next year?

Wait - I've got it! Next year, he can proclaim February to be ... Black History Month!!! Surely no one has thought of that one before.

Really, who cares? Every group under the sun gets a day or week or month dedicated to them. Tuesday could be left-handed, deaf, mute, architects that breed ferrets day for all I care. It's just Tuesday to me.

Art W:

Maybe if Sarah Palin is elected President we'll have "Racist Moron Pride" Month and possibly "Homophobe" Month."

That would give some folks something to 'hope' for.

I dunno. Maybe just a "I HATE ____" month and then you can fill in the blanks according to whoever you hate most that month.

JLawson:

Why should we bother, Art W, when you do it for us?

But it's funny - you look through the comments here and it's either 'Okay, this is the most pressing thing on his plate?', 'What a moron', 'Way to try to lock in a voting block', or 'Yawn'.

(Firmly stuck between the 'Okay, is this the most pressing thing on his plate' and 'Yawn' camps myself.)

Only person mentioning 'hate' is you. Maybe you see anything but fawning agreement as 'hate', I don't know. Perhaps you need to talk to your shrink about 'projection' - because I think you're seeing things (IE 'hate') that aren't there.

BTW, how do you think this will play with the racist homophobes in the ME? Think it'll make Saudi, the Palestinians or Iran love and respect us for our dedication to human rights?

Obama is queer. NO doubt. By the literal definition.

In plain English "I declare June to be 'put your penis into another guys rectum month'. Nice. ww

Which is what this administration would do very well.

Jan - I HATE Capitalists month
Feb - I HATE Successful people month
Mar - I HATE God and any religion (other than Islam) month
Apr - I HATE straight people month
May - I HATE the Border Patrol and anybody trying to keep illegals out month
June - I HATE White people month

Aug - I HATE giving people medical choices month
