A truly delicious story.

A group of guys got rowdy on Memorial Day weekend on the gayer end of Rehoboth beach, drinking in public and urinating in public (neither of which I personally am totally against by the way).

When they got ticketed a group of them wrote a letter claiming it was discrimination (looks like that claim is crap), and pointed out they were Very Important Obama regime staff, Washington Post reporters, and CNN reporters (you have to read to the middle to get that).  Roflmao!

The email sent to Rehoboth officials and the media was unsigned. Lee Whitman, a D.C. resident and Rehoboth summer vacationer, told the Blade he knows those who wrote the email.

“Among them are doctors, lawyers, a CNN producer, staff members of the Washington Post, members of the current presidential administration, and a three-time Emmy Award winner,” he said in his own email accompanying the one sent to Rehoboth officials. He did not identify them by name.

“We are skilled. We are talented,” he wrote. “And if we continue to feel persecuted we could easily pull every gay dollar from your city. Not just the money from those that were there this weekend, but all gay dollars.”

A separate email sent to the Blade by a gay Rehoboth vacationer, who also asked not to be identified, says he and his partner were present at Poodle Beach on May 24, and they witnessed what he says were many gays acting irresponsibly.”

Groups critical of the Obama regime get IRS harassment and delays, but those supportive crow they get instance approval.  Here’s Sean Bugg on LinkedIn!

nextgeneration.jpgThe Next Generation Leadership Foundation (NGLF) is dedicated to inspiring, nurturing and mentoring LGBT youth and young adults, creating spaces for them to lead in a variety of fields, from business to politics to activism to arts.
NGLF achieves these goals through directly honoring achievements of LGBT people under 30, building a network of Next Generation Award winners to mentor and teach others, and organizing leadership-training events for interested and qualified applicants.

Mr. Bugg is a publisher of the leftist Democratic magazine and website Metroweekly, in which one will have great difficulty finding any significant criticism of any Democrat, or anything other than attacks on anyone from any other political party.  Indeed, if memory serves, if you go through the archives of Mr. Bugg’s own columns you will find him rationalizing, excusing and defending President Obama when he fails to deliver on gay issues.
I attended the awards ceremony for the Foundation last year.  It was a room full of people who work for the government and Democratic Party groups and allied non-profits.  I would suspect about 3 people there were something other than Democrats.  The award winners were diverse by race and sex but all basically worked for the kind of government funded non-profits Democratic campaign workers are parked in to collect a salary in between campaigns.

For instance Ms. Victoria Kirby, a 2011 winner interviewed by Bugg’s own Metroweekly.  Where does she work?  Obama’s Organizing for Action:


Victoria Kirby is also doing her part to support the foundation. This 2011 Next Generation Award winner, now based in Tampa, Fla., as state coordinator of Organizing for Action, has joined on as one of Bugg’s board members.


“I’m really excited about this,” says Kirby. “I think it’s a great idea. When you look at the programs available for people in our community, it’s needed.”


While Kirby grants there are a number of organizations running programs aimed at guiding young LGBT people, she believes the Next Generation Leadership Foundation is unique with its emphasis on mentoring across a range of fields. Similarly, Bugg emphasizes that he wanted to ensure the NGLF mission would not duplicate any work already being done.


“Having programs where people can see role models is very important,” Kirby says of the foundation’s efforts. “It’s important we raise leaders who feel comfortable in their own skin.”

“I’m very proud of Sean for making this jump,” adds Kirby, 26, building up to the pitch that shows she has board-member acumen beyond her years. “I’m excited about the idea, making the camp a reality. I’d encourage readers to give, open their pocketbooks and hearts to young people being trained and empowered to truly become the leaders of the next generation of our community.”

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and to a lesser degree its immediate neighbors, Lewes, and Bethany Beach, have become the vacation spots for gays (and others) from nearby Baltimore, Richmond, Philadelphia, and above all D.C.

Brietbart.com and Peter Schweitzer could do a whole segment of their “Boomtown” investigations on DC and its Maryland and Virginia suburbs being the wealthiest counties in America by extending it to the price escalation and D.C. absentee ownership of beach property in Rehoboth.  David Brock, founder of Media Matters for America, had a house there where he hosted Democratic Party fundraisers.  At least one well paid gay Sierra Club lobbyist has a house there.  And a friend of mine who became an instant AOL millionaire when his AOL stock options vested became one of Rehoboth’s first gay council members, as well as moving there from DC to build spec homes as a hobby.

It’s a lovely community in many ways and very gay friendly (you can find travel advice by me on line about Rehoboth).  The gays there from Baltimore and other towns tend to look down on D.C. gays slightly in much the way Baltimoreans spoof DC yuppies who move to Baltimore in a John Waters movie – they have too much money, are pretentious, and pushy.

This week Rehoboth seems to have unleashed the police powers to get rid of the annoying heterosexuals who keep coming to the gay resort town.  Of course that’s an exaggeration.  Rehoboth is still majority straight, both in population and government.  But it does show that one can be progressively multicultural and inclusive while being increasingly fascist.  Like a black president who expands executive powers and kills brown kids around the world with drones.

Man in cuffs tazed, kicked by police while his pregnant wife screams Rehoboth DE

A man was tazed repeatedly and kicked in the head by police while he was in handcuffs inRehoboth BeachDelaware. His wife, who was eight and a half months pregnant, watched and recorded the event, begging the police to stop tazing him. Throughout the disturbing and graphic video, the wife’s voice may be heard, begging the three police officers surrounding her husband to let her take him home. She screams “stop tazing him”, and moves in close as an officer, she identifies as “Robert Whitman”, begins to taze her husband in the face and head while he’s on the ground in handcuffs. “What is wrong with you,” the pregnant wife screams as Whitman kicks her husband in the face. The video, uploaded Thursday, includes in the description that the man, identified as Jeremy, was tazed by police 13 times.
Rehoboth Beach is a small, resort town in Delaware. Described as “a welcoming, friendly, Delaware community”, the town boasts a population of 1,300 people during the winter but swells to over 35,000 with tens of thousands more nearby during the summer. Jeremy and his wife were visiting Rehoboth Beach on April 7, 2013, as thousands do every year. The season in Rehoboth Beach has just begun, meaning many of the seasonal police officers specially trained in “Bicycle Patrol Operations”, are not on patrol in the town yet. Rehoboth Beach Police state on their website that they are authorized to have “19 full-time sworn police officers”. During the off-season their police force drops to a staff of around ten. Corporal Robert Whitman, the officer seen kicking Jeremy in the head and tazing him in face, has a LinkedIn profile showing his employment as a “Corporal at Rehoboth Beach Police”, meaning Whitman is most likely employed by the small beach town all year.
The town of Rehoboth, known for its beaches and food, is now making a name for itself in a new way as word of this graphic video spreads. The man identified as Jeremy is yelling, screaming, and cursing as he is repeatedly tazed and kicked while in handcuffs. As Jeremy’s wife questions police in the video, police state Jeremy is being detained for “resisting”. The pregnant woman is told to “go where you have to go or we’ll arrest you too”. No one at the City of Rehoboth Beach was available for comment.

Former comedian Kate Clinton has a new berth as a columnist at the Washington Blade, and in her maiden column attempts to criticize Obama’s surveillance state and murder of thousands of innocent children around the world with drones.  But she can’t get it out past the hairball in her throat and ends up with this:

Kate Clinton, gay news, Washington Blade
Kate Clinton is a humorist who has entertained LGBT audiences for 30 years.
Due to a recent medical confinement, with its concomitant desire for an out-of-body experience while the body healed, my galpal and I learned the pleasures of binge TV. “The Wire,” “Downton Abbey” and “Homeland.” We followed Tammy Taylor from “Friday Night Lights” to “Nashville.” We hate-watched a quarter season of “Game of Thrones.” With recovery, we have gone our separate watching ways: she to “Sons of Anarchy” because football season is over, me to “Revenge,” so I’ll never actually have to go to the Hamptons.
I hope psychologists somewhere are studying the aberrations of the serial mind. When we were on “The Wire,” I noticed myself talking to my galpal like Omar, “You feel me?” During “Downton,” I became quite resentful that I had to dress and feed myself. The Emily/Amanda pleasures and perils of “Revenge” made me a meaner UNO player.
But then came the 10th anniversary of the pre-emptive “Shock and Awe” invasion of Iraq and the beginning of the end for thousands of Iraqi civilians, American soldiers, Saddam Hussein, electricity, water, trees, birds, truth, hope and on and on. I have never felt so seethingly vengeful.
For as sectarian violence continues to wrack Iraq and our soldiers come home crippled by war to an overwhelmed, unresponsive Bureau of Veterans Affairs, George Bush is narcissistically painting nude pictures of himself, living in assisted living in Dallas, and riding his bike. The shovel-ready Dick Cheney, whose healthcare we all envy, is unrepentant and no doubt happy that his Halliburton made $39.5 billion on the Iraq war. Don Rumsfeld is enjoying crab cakes by the Chesapeake Bay. Like Emily/Amanda I feel I should dedicate myself to bringing George Bush and his craven cohort to justice.
From his first term, President Obama said that he did not want to look backward, only forward. Granted, his administration was busy with a fiscal crisis caused by financialized mortgage shenanigans, decreased tax revenue and an off-the-books war.  But looking forward leaves unexamined and uninvestigated a bogus war, lies, torture, rendition and corruption. Such willful amnesia leads to moral drift, targeted assassinations and the normalization of drones.
But revenge is so Old Testament. Even Emily/Amanda has learned its pitfalls. Revenge brings more of the same or worse. Ten years ago Bush II was avenging his father’s wimpy retreat in the first Iraq war. I wish father and son had just gone to family therapy.
Mind you I am nowhere near forgiveness. Instead of putting Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld etc. in orange onesies in lockdown, now I think they should be forced to watch, for the rest of their born days, a continuous loop of Rachel Maddow’s excellent special, “Hubris,” about the lead-up to the war. It’s “Sons of Anarchy,” the reality show.
In these heady, incredible days of shifting public attitudes toward LGBT rights and perhaps positive Supreme Court rulings, we LGBTs cannot forget what we learned. After years of being denied then dismissed, our progress toward equality, came not through revenge but through activism. Simply put, we came out of the closet.
Stopping the next iteration of the war machine can come only when we come out of the peace closet and speak out against bullying drones, omnipresent surveillance, and the weaponization of equality. Otherwise, it’s an endless loop of “Game of Thrones.”

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.

ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 7.8%.

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?

ABBOTT: No, that’s 14.7%.

COSTELLO: You just said 7.8%.

ABBOTT: 7.8% Unemployed.

COSTELLO: Right 7.8% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 14.7%.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it’s 14.7% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 7.8%.

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 7.8% or 14.7%?

ABBOTT: 7.8% are unemployed. 14.7% are out of work.

COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, Obama said you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the
unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.

COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!

ABBOTT: No, you miss his point.

COSTELLO: What point?

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn’t look for work can’t be counted with
those who look for work. It wouldn’t be fair.

COSTELLO: To whom?

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who
are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer in
the ranks of the unemployed.

COSTELLO: So if you’re off the unemployment roles that would count
as less unemployment?

ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look
for work?

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That’s how the current administration
gets it to 7.8%. Otherwise it would be 14.7%. Our govt. doesn’t want you
to read about 14.7% unemployment.

COSTELLO: That would be tough on those running for reelection.

ABBOTT: Absolutely.

COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two
ways to bring down the unemployment number?

ABBOTT: Two ways is correct
.
COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

ABBOTT: Correct.

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking
for a job?

ABBOTT: Bingo.

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and
the easier of the two is to have administration supporters stop looking
for work.

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like the Economy Czar.

COSTELLO: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like our current President.

Larry Sinclair, a former gay party boy, now investigative blogger, is about to come out with his second book on Obama, When One Man Stands


Sinclair’s first book, about gay sex and cocaine he alleges he shared with a pre-POTUS Barack Obama, was kept off the market for months by an Ivy League Chicago law firm retained by Obama supporters.  For the past year Mr. Sinclair has had his own group of cyberstalkers at an anonymous blog, The Regulator Too, who attack his credibility with such obsession one could almost wonder if they are actually hired by him to increase his Internet traffic.

It’s remarkable that so much effort is spent on marginalizing him.

We’ve been linking to and reposting Berin Szorka’s and Glenn Greenwald’s criticism of Log Cabin Republican’s ads opposing the Hagel nomination.

Personally I think the most interesting thing about the affair is how it reveals the typical Obama supporting gay to be an air headed little lemming.  (Indeed, thinking about how thoughtless, opportunist, and careerist the “liberal” Democratic gays I know and ran around with in DC from 1997 to 2005 are, I think Julie Borowski’s comments about women liking to fit in and be trendy shapes their politics also applies to gays – which may mean it just applies to everyone.) Obama never campaigned against Proposition 8 in California because it might have lost him some black church vote.  He never campaigned against the anti-gay marriage amendment in North Carolina last year for the same reason.  He, and the entire Democratic Party, did little about Don’t Ask, D’ont Tell, even when they controlled all branches of government in 2009 and 2010 – or earlier when Senator Obama could have proposed legislation to overturn it.  And now he appoints Hagel, because his real goal is to have the GOP fractured and fighting with itself – not support gay rights, not further human freedom, not improve people’s lives, and certainly not protect individual rights or free the economy or make America prosperous.

Here’s a different perspective on Hagel from the website of Michael Hurd, a Rand influenced therapist:

Why Obama Wants an Anti-Gay Defense Secretary

PDF Print E-mail
Daily Dose of Reason – Politics & Government
  
Sunday, 06 January 2013 00:00
DODBarack Obama wants to appoint an anti-gay former U.S. Senator, Chuck Hagel, as the next Defense Secretary.
Back in the Clinton Administration, Hagel opposed the appointment of an openly gay man to be ambassador to Luxembourg. At the time, Hagel said: “They [ambassadors] are representing America. They are representing our lifestyle, our values, our standards. And I think it is an inhibiting factor to be gay — openly, aggressively gay like Mr. Hormel [the nominee] — to do an effective job.”
Under pressure, Hagel is now backing down from his comments. This means about as much as the words of any politician. Hagel knows that everyone else knows the real truth is reflected in his earlier comments on the subject.

The compelling question for today is: Why does Obama want Hagel as defense secretary? Fresh from his reelection triumph, Obama can appoint almost anyone he wants and the Democratic-controlled Senate will approve almost any nomination.

Why Hagel?
Obama, after all, credits himself with reversing the official ban on gays serving in the military. (Gays and lesbians always did serve in the military; they were not allowed to openly acknowledge their sexual orientation, until recently.) Why in the world would the leftist Obama go out of his way to choose an anti-gay Republican?
The answer lies in why so many conservative Republicans oppose Hagel’s nomination. The answer lies in Hagel’s views on foreign policy and defense—specifically, Iran, Israel and the rest of the Middle East.
Hagel is on record as opposed to unilateral sanctions against Iran, a country whose government denies the existence of the Holocaust and pledges to wipe Israel “off the map” once it acquires nuclear weapons to do so.
In 2009, Hagel appealed to the newly elected President Obama to open direct negotiations with Hamas, the infamous anti-Israeli terrorist group.
Hagel, who served as president and CEO of the World USO from 1987 to 1990, expressed intense opposition to the USO Haifa Center during a tumultuous 1989 meeting with Jewish leaders, according to multiple sources involved in the fight to keep the post open.
“He said to me, ‘Let the Jews pay for it’,” said Marsha Halteman, director for military and law enforcement programs at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), which led the battle to keep USO Haifa operational. (Source: Commentary magazine online, 1/4/13)
Imagine if a nominee for Health and Human Services secretary was on record saying, “Let the blacks pay for it.” Or: “Let Hispanics pay for it.” The outrage would be deafening—and not surprising.
Why not even a whimper from Obama’s colleagues in Congress with equally racist remarks by a nominee for one of the nation’s most important and powerful posts?
Hagel’s anti-Israel voting record is too much for even the staunchly pro-Obama, pro-leftist “Washington Post,” who recently wrote that, “Chuck Hagel is not the right choice for defense secretary.”
Obama is a politician, but he’s more consistent and ideological than most. To understand him, all you have to do is what most Americans no longer do: Pay attention.
Obama is openly sympathetic to militant Islam. He has been for his entire term of office. Obama does not waver. He often speaks highly not only of Islam, but organizations connected with militant Islam. A former Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohammed Morsi, is now president of Egypt, thanks in part to the tacit approval of the Obama Administration. Morsi, as recently as 2010, reportedly stated in a public address that Jews are “the descendants of apes and pigs” and therefore must be expelled from the Middle East.
The official policy of the United States government, under Obama, is to—at best—disregard these comments. In so doing, our government implicitly supports them.
How do anti-gay remarks figure into all this? As everyone knows, Islam is violently opposed to homosexuality, to the point of justifying the execution of gays and lesbians under both moral and secular law.
Can those of you still paying attention connect the dots, or must I do it for you?
Sympathy with militant Islam is consistent with gay-hating and Jew-hating. Obama’s policies of supporting the rise of militant Islam in Egypt and offering to appease Iran are consistent with looking for a defense secretary who is openly sympathetic to these attitudes.
Obama never was a friend of individual rights or individualism. Whether it’s socialized medicine or thrashing the productive and successful, he places the collective above the individual at every turn.
Like every collectivist in human history, Obama inevitably favors some groups above others. Jews clearly do not make the cut; and gays do, but only when politically convenient for him.
