@Cam: I’m not HRC. I think HRC is useless. I have criticized GetEQUAL because they haven’t done anything helpful to our Movement. They don’t have a strategy, a formal organization with a Board and By-laws, they do childish stunts and they have wasted $500,000 by hiring “activists” that don’t seem very bright.
They brought “markers” to a Committee Chairman because “with the Recession he couldn’t afford them.”
They heckled the president and he – along with most of America laughed at them.
They handcuffed themselves to the White House fence and they were ignored by the media. They already knew that David Mixner doing it 15 years ago accomplished nothing.
They didn’t get enough “attention” so Dan Choi attempted suicide by starvation. When he was ignored he quit.
They asked us all to go to Washington D.C. in an “emergency call to action” and 20 people showed up – half of them being paid to do so.
They asked us to send Nancy Pelosi “a pack of chewing gum everyday until she learned she could walk and vote at the same time.”
They did a silly protest against Exxon Mobil that caused a negative shift against us by their shareholders.
They told Rep. Jared Polis that he “wasn’t telling them the truth and that he didn’t understand politics.”
They have alienated many Democrats with their childish idea that “embarrassing democrats” will create any results.
They have embarrassed us and made us look like children and completely out of touch with political realities.
Do you need more?
HRC is ineffective. GetEQUAL is ineffective, but they are also dangerous because they are counterproductive. THAT’s the difference.
If you want to be a cheerleader for GetSTUPID you’ll have to GetSMART and provide some rationale for their stupid “get” tricks.
