the winds of change aren't blowing in "fierce advocate's" direction

When someone like mixner, a former clinton administration official speaks this way, COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS pay attention:

“I will not attend a fundraiser for the National Democratic Party in Washington next week when the current administration is responsible for these kind of actions. How will they ever take us seriously if we keep forking out money while they harm us. For now on, my money is going to battles within the community such as the fight in Maine or the March on Washington! I am so tired of being told by Democratic operatives to 'suck it up' because so many other profound issues are at stake. It is as if our fight for our freedom is single handedly responsible for the fate of all other issues. Bullshit. Maybe, just maybe, it is time for others to 'suck it up' for us and finally, without conditions, join our fight for our freedom!”

as mixner also notes, the HRC has also issued a statement on the “fierce advocate’s” DOJ defense of DOMA. for those of you not “in the know”, the HRC is THE glbt national organization that has been very chummy with O and advising him on “strategy” for GLBT issues. for THEM to speak out speaks volumes about the growing agitation in the politically involved GLBT movement and our national organizations.

there is a scheduled March On Washington planned in october. I’m strongly considering going, even though we can’t afford it. click the hyperlink above to learn more.
