Joe and I are launching today a donor boycott of the DNC. The boycott is cosponsored by Daily Kos, Jane Hamsher of FireDogLake, Dan Savage, Michelangelo Signorile, David Mixner, Paul Sousa (Founder of Equal Rep in Boston), Pam Spaulding, Robin Tyler (ED of the Equality Campaign, Inc.), Bil Browning for the Bilerico Project, Andy Towle and Michael Goff of Towle Road, and soon others.
It’s really more of a “pause,” than a boycott. Boycotts sounds so final, and angry. Whereas this campaign is temporary, and is only meant to help some friends – President Obama and the Democratic party – who have lost their way. We are hopeful that via this campaign, our friends will keep their promises.
So please sign the Petition and take a Pledge to no longer donate to the DNC, Organizing for America, or the Obama campaign until the President and the Democratic party keep their promises to the gay community, our families, and our friends.
Clearly we have a problem here. A fundamental disconnect between our D.C. ‘Representatives’ and the people they are supposed to represent.
A failure to communicate.
Well for all that people think I’m deep and mysterious, I think I’m pretty up front and in your face. About as subtle as a two by four upside your head.
Democrat does not equal good!
Republicans are evil does not scare me anymore. Better than nothing does not attract me.
Do your fucking job or go home asshole. Your title does not impress me idiot. And if you can’t read a poll you’re a lousy politician and deserve your failure.
The only thing that surprises me is how in denial people are about their delusions.
And that doesn’t surprise me at all.
