Barack Obama critic David Mixner has five pretty reasonable tips on how, and who, to give to this holiday season to effect political change. On Santa’s naughty list: The DNC, DSCC, DCCC, and probably any other group with a “D” and “C” in it, because “[t]hey will use the funds to not only elect our allies but also Blue Dog Democrats. Even if they set up a ‘special committee’ for us that will enable them to loosen funds for candidates who are opposed to our freedom.” On the nice list: LGBT candidates who actually fight for LGBT rights. And curiously missing from Mixner’s list? Any mention of Gay Inc. groups like HRC, GLAAD, or NGLTF. Oh, maybe David did give a nod to them, with Tip No. 5: (emphasis ours)
“Contribute to defeating our enemies at the local level which is a very powerful message to send those that oppose us.”
Or maybe we’re just reading too much into this.
