Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Obama will repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, and the Pope will convert to Judaism!

by Dick Mac

Well, gay and lesbian taxpayers have had their noses rubbed in it once again!

After supporting Barack Obama in his presidential bid, partly because he promised to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the Justice Department has released a brief defending DOMA! Not just defending DOMA, but comparing gay marriage to incest and paedophilia. Obama's lawyers have argued that DOMA should be upheld. If Obama agrees with this, he should be dismissed summarily by all progressives; and if he is going to pretend he didn't know this brief was being filed, then he shows himself as a completely incompetent manager.

I am not surprised, as I have no confidence in post-Reagan America. Barack Obama is not interested in making America a better place. He may be interested in treating it a little better than his four immediate predecessors, but he is interested in securing his personal fortune, and nothing more. Obama's arguments that gay marriage is the same as incest and paedophilia show that he is just as much a bigot as every other Protestant heterosexual man in America, and perhaps more so.

The Democrats and Republicans need to be pushed out as the only parties in America. Liberals, intellectuals, and free-thinkers, along with their progressive counterparts in religious and immigrant communities must unite to form at least one more political party.

Now that Obama has shown his true, truly homophobic, truly anti-American, anti-taxpayer colors with his position on DOMA, Americans should prepare themselves for his next trick: total support for Don't Ask Don't Tell.

Gay people must pull all support for the Democrats if they want to have a place at the table. A place that they pay dearly for with their tax dollars. A table at which they are denied a seat, even by their so-called allies.

This is a reprehensible situation and Obama should be ashamed of himself. He, like Bill Clinton, gets one vote from me, and that vote was already cast. Irrespective of his opposition in 2012, I will vote against him.

Vote progressive, just don't vote Democrat or Republican.
