Police quickly arrested four suspects in a Chicago hate crime, but racists are gleefully blaming it on Black Lives Matter, which does not advocate hate or violence. Of course it would never occur to these malignant white clowns to take responsibility for the crimes of some random white person, even if their rhetoric helped incite it. This is the poison of racial privilege. But calling them deplorable is the truly unforgivable thing? They can Rot. In. Hell.
A year ago today, on the Feast of the Epiphany, I visited NYC to see a matinee performance of Hamilton. That was a theatrical epiphany. I feel no epiphany today. There are not three wise men in Trump's announced cabinet, though there is plenty of gold.
Well thanks for sharing, I guess. Did Kim date a gay man? What is her problem? Even if she had some unhappy personal experience that somehow involved a gay person, that was not the entire gay community. So at best she is using lynch mob logic. If your spouse cheats on you, do you go out and attack some random other person's spouse? Who thinks this is even coherent, much less reasonable? And maybe she is just ignorant and hateful. Do something useful and knock this crap off, people.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe reciprocates President Obama's visit to Hiroshima by visiting the Pearl Harbor memorial site in Honolulu.
Sentence overturned in HIV transmission case https://t.co/UXAKfJBBkx— Washington Blade (@WashBlade) December 23, 2016
GLAA has long opposed the criminalization of what should be understood and treated as a health issue. A good rule of thumb when facing the making of public policy based on controversial cases is: who will be helped by our doing this?
Debbie Reynolds says daughter Carrie Fisher is in stable condition after heart attack https://t.co/KirwKv6Ci6— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) December 26, 2016
One of the hardest jobs a parent can have is to face the loss of a child. Carrie Fisher is 60, her mother 84. Both have survived a lot. Both are smart and feisty. A lot of people are sending healing thoughts Carrie's way.
From the International Space Station. Peace on earth. (Aspirational, not descriptive.)
U.S. declines to veto U.N. Security Council resolution for Israel to stop Jewish settlement activity https://t.co/2zsWdKguYO— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) December 23, 2016
The Obama administration got this exactly right. Bibi can pop a blood vessel as far as I'm concerned, as can the people in Trumpland. The settlements are a long-term existential threat to Israel, and hence to the world, though the diehards refuse to recognize it. Brava to Ambassador Power for quoting Ronald Reagan's opposition to further settlements from 1982. Without a two-state solution, the only peace in that region's future is the peace of the grave.
An absolute disgrace. If the NC GOP thinks this betrayal will be soon forgotten, they are sorely mistaken.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio vows resistance to Trump's racist, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, and misogynist policies.
An excellent question. Peter King is a hypocrite. As to singling out Muslims, Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, testified on that issue more than five years at a hearing chaired by Rep. King.
Two bills passed their second and final readings Tuesday afternoon on the consent calendar at the D.C. Council's legislative meeting:
Collaborative Reproduction Amendment Act of 2016, Bill 21-16
Death Certificate Gender Identity Recognition Amendment Act of 2016, Bill 21-444
The first of these legalizes and regulates surrogate parenting agreements in the District. GLAA and our coalition partners have pushed this for four years. Special thanks and congrats to Alison Gill who coordinated our coalition effort.
The second clarifies the process for designating a decedent's gender identity or expression on their death certificate. Lack of respect for people's gender identities after their deaths has been a recurring problem.
