With Friends Like These . . .

Exactly how stupid is this? Gay rights leaders and supporters are invited to the White House for a party and some take the time to flip off Ronald Reagan’s portrait, take a picture of the act, and then release the picture to third parties. It is now the rage on the Internet  from Drudge to Yahoo to dozens of conservative sites — giving opponents of both Obama and gay rights the perfect photo foil to use against them. It is a disgraceful and contemptible display that is being used to paint an entire movement in the worst possible light. (UPDATE: The White House has rebuked the activists for their actions.)

The disrespectful act occurred at the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. Philadelphia Gay News publisher Mark Segal (center) is shown opting for a simple (and non-problematic) thumbs up. According to the report below, the man on the left is Matthew “Matty” Hart, the national director of public engagement at Solutions for Progress, and the woman on the right is photographer Zoe Strauss.

Even without releasing the photos to third parties, it is remarkably uncivil and contemptible to flip the bird inside of the White House. No matter what one’s political affiliation or feelings toward Reagan or Bush, this is a revered place and your are a guest in this house. Worse yet, Obama and the gay rights movement are likely to be painted with this obnoxious conduct.

  1. Hubert What they did was assinine and abhorrent but your words are not a whole lot better. Better beware of projection and homophobia.

  2. Typical behavior from these libtard nutjobs. This is what is to be expected from this human trash, and it will only get worse.

  3. How much water pollution is there in the western states because of mining? Go figure. There are some houses in the western states that are sinking because of mining. I was involved in an audit in Kentucky, where some of the houses were sinking. The houses already had mortgages. Couldn’t live there though, because the houses were condemned. The foundations were cracked and the houses were sinking. Insurance company said it isn’t our fault. And it wasn’t their fault.
