Newsweek Cover Declares Obama ‘The First Gay President’

Personally I have no issues with gays.  It’s their agenda that I’ve grown to dislike. May it be the case of second graders being bussed to see two men getting married, or trying to force upon on us  the normalcy of their lifestyle.

 

Newsweek Cover Declares Obama The First Gay President

My take is live and let live.  I do have an issue however in this case with Obama.  If he is in fact gay as the article alleges, he had done more than pander to the GLBT community, he is making law to further his own specific ideology.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message. 

Newsweek

Newsweek magazine, no stranger to controversial covers, has unveiled the front of their next issue: It’s President Barack Obama with a rainbow-striped halo and the headline, “The First Gay President.”

The accompanying article will be written by Andrew Sullivan, who is openly gay. Newsweek forwarded a preview of Sullivan’s piece to Politico:

It’s easy to write off President Obama’s announcement of his support for gay marriage as a political ploy during an election year. But don’t believe the cynics. Andrew Sullivan argues that this announcement has been in the making for years. “When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work.” And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. “He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family,” Sullivan writes.

The full piece is not yet available, but Sullivan weighed in on Obama’s announcement in a blog post last week:

I think of all the gay kids out there who now know they have their president on their side. I think of Maurice Sendak, who just died, whose decades-long relationship was never given the respect it deserved. I think of the centuries and decades in which gay people found it impossible to believe that marriage and inclusion in their own families was possible for them, so crushed were they by the weight of social and religious pressure. I think of all those in the plague years shut out of hospital rooms, thrown out of apartments, written out of wills, treated like human garbage because they loved another human being. I think of Frank Kameny. I think of the gay parents who now feel their president is behind their sacrifices and their love for their children.

The interview changes no laws; it has no tangible effect. But it reaffirms for me the integrity of this man we are immensely lucky to have in the White House. Obama’s journey on this has been like that of many other Americans, when faced with the actual reality of gay lives and gay relationships. Yes, there was politics in a lot of it. But not all of it. I was in the room long before the 2008 primaries when Obama spoke to the mother of a gay son about marriage equality. He said he was for equality, but not marriage. Five years later, he sees – as we all see – that you cannot have one without the other. But even then, you knew he saw that woman’s son as his equal as a citizen. It was a moment – way off the record at the time – that clinched my support for him.

  1. OK folks, lets”s catch up now. Hillary and Bill know the forgery will lead to not only to an Obama defeat but many dem leaders who covered for him on ineligibility could even face prosecution including Hillary and Bill. So how to replace Obama fast enough to blow the forgery out of the prosecution phase. A surogate, newsweek breaks the gay story. However Israel needs to either get Biden in white house in 60 days ( before a mandatory attack on Iran with a sabotaging Obama administration) or take a big risk removing him in more lethal ways. Obama is replacing his bodyguards with some so loyal to him over the constitution that he can safely declare martial law after a false flag bio attack, before Hillary, Biden, Bi Bi, Pelosi,Reid, etc. can blow the attention off the forgery and Obama back to Kenya to escape the courts and pentagon. Obama’s 2 million man civilian security force to be raised in 24 hours after martial law from inner-cities needs time and spce to materialize. Hopefully, Omam’s mind can’t heep up fast enough to effectively carry out his false flag terror attacl, martial lasw, etc. Get ready for fire works.

  2. Hold on Mart.
    your expecting a lot out of people that with the entire US at there desposal can’t Dummy a Birth Cirt.

  3. Obama is pushing it and hes gonna go down and it wont be pretty… thres no way he can handle the ppl of Ameican they have been in to many wars to take orders from a fake imposter..
