The Gays in SF are cowards


San Francisco Pride President:


quote:

Bradley Manning will not be a grand marshal in this year’s San Francisco Pride celebration. His nomination was a mistake and should never have been allowed to happen....

even the hint of support for actions which placed in harms way the lives of our men and women in uniform — and countless others, military and civilian alike — will not be tolerated by the leadership of San Francisco Pride. It is, and would be, an insult to every one, gay and straight, who has ever served in the military of this country.



The Guardian story: Bradley Manning is off limits at SF gay pride parade, but corporate sleaze is embraced
quote:


First, while even a hint of support for Manning will not be tolerated, there is a long roster of large corporations serving as the event's sponsors who are welcomed with open arms. The list is here. It includes AT&T and Verizon, the telecom giants that enabled the illegal warrantless eavesdropping on US citizens by the Bush administration and its NSA, only to get retroactively immunized from Congress and thus shielded from all criminal and civil liability (including a lawsuit brought in San Francisco against those corporations by their customers who were illegally spied on). Last month, AT&T was fined by OSHA for failing to protect one of its employees who was attacked, was found by the FCC last year to have overcharged customers by secretly switching them to plans they didn't want, and is now being sued by the US government for "allegedly bill[ing] the government improperly for services designed for the deaf and hard-of-hearing who place calls by typing messages over the web."


quote:

The health care giant Kaiser Permanente, another proud SF Pride sponsor, is currently under investigation by California officials for alleged massive privacy violations in the form of recklessly disclosing 300,000 patient records.


quote:

So apparently, the very high-minded ethical standards of Lisa L Williams and the SF Pride Board apply only to young and powerless Army Privates who engage in an act of conscience against the US war machine, but instantly disappear for large corporations and banks that hand over cash.

The orchestrators of this should be ashamed of themselves for disrespecting the best among them.

We should let the Muslims take over San Fran, then bomb the place.

Easy to see why the the author, Glenn Greenwald, is so upset.

He is gay and so is Bradley Manning, and he (Greenwald) is also best buds with Daniel Ellsberg, who was going to ride in the parade as Manning's representative. And we all know the Ellsburg-Manning tie-in.

Nothing like an objective piece of journalism ...

Yes, maybe he'll get a trial sometime this decade.

Wouldn't a grand marshall have to be at the parade or was it going to be honorary? Either way it would send the wrong message in pretty much any city except for SF.

Yes, that's why another infamous "leaker", Daniel Ellsburg, had agreed to ride in the parade as his representative.

"Earlier Friday, Daniel Ellsberg, the former military analyst who in 1971 leaked the classified information about the Vietnam War that became known as the Pentagon Papers, had agreed to participate in the San Francisco parade on Manning's behalf, said Rainey Reitman, a member of the Bradley Manning Support Network who had cheered the short-lived recognition."

I'd like to think that not every city likes to cover up the corruption and warmongering of the State.

I sure do.

He's the guy who said this in 2008:

"For the past two decades there’s been a drumbeat of complaints from the right about the media being too liberal, so that now the media bends over backwards to accommodate conservative viewpoints. It’s almost impossible to find a doctrinaire liberal on television, yet even supposedly liberal sympathizing cable shows on networks like MSNBC are chock full of hard rights ideologues. News executives are afraid of being seen as too liberal, which is why the New York Times hires William Kristol as a columnist and CNN puts on Bill Bennett as a political commentator.
