My email to the DNC re: civil unions in Hawaii

Timothy Kincaid

January 18th, 2010

Today I emailed the DNC:

This week the legislature in Hawaii will be considering Civil Unions legislation. As the HI legislature is virtually all Democratic, can you please direct me to the statements in which the DNC has encouraged the Hawaiian legislature to uphold the standard of the Party and vote for equality? I don’t seem to be able to find them online.

I wonder if I’ll get a response. They may be too busy honoring Dr. King’s dream for equality and civil rights.

I’ll bet after they get their asses whooped in Massachusetts tomorrow they’ll decide maybe they need all hands on deck to hold onto their majorities later this year. Expect a charm offensive toward the LGBT population from the DNC. I think, however, that this time we’ll be a hard sell, and they’ll need to pony up a bit more than charm. Repeal of DOMA and DADT, and passage of UAFA, ENDA, just as starters. Time to stop kissing Rick Warren’s ass and pucker up over here!

Rich, unfortunately the opposite will happen. They will misinterpret the results and decide they need to move to the right.
