San Francisco desperately wants to be taken seriously, rather than as the fruity, not-so-closeted “City by the Bay.” And, yet, the idiots who run it consult ouija boards and what they claim is the ghost of a dead gay politician for policy advice about whether or not they are far left and anti-war enough and whether their gay militance or anti-war stance should prevail. I guess this is what happens when people eat too much organic food and have too much gay sex. Clowns, indeed:
It is official: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors backs the idea of the Navy naming a vessel after gay political leader Harvey Milk. But the decision came only after debating the power of symbolism and consulting with a spirit board.
Milk, one of the first openly gay officeholders in the nation, was serving on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors when he was gunned down in 1978 by his former colleague Dan White.
Milk was a naval officer who served during the Korean War. . . .”Now, because of the repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ our community can serve openly and proudly,” he added. “We must support our LGBT soldiers past and present. I can think of no better way to do that than to name a vessel for a Navy officer who went on to become one of the most important civil rights leaders in history.”
But Supervisor Christina Olague voted against the legislation, not wanting to link Milk to the military.
“I just do believe that there are more appropriate ways to honor somebody who in their last days of their life was opposed to war,” she said, noting Milk’s public opposition to the Vietnam War. “I also have, my entire life, been against the military-industrial complex.”
Supervisor John Avalos said he sees the merits of the arguments on both sides of the debate. He and his City Hall aides turned to a Ouija board to ask for Milk’s opinion.
We “actually put our hands on the Ouija board and the letters g-o-o-d-r-i-d-d-a-n-c-e-d-a-d-t came out. We asked Harvey, and Harvey gave us these letters: ‘Good riddance don’t ask, don’t tell.’ It was quite clear that Harvey Milk would have been opposed to ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ I can honestly say that’s one aspect of this resolution that’s really valid.”
Yes, they actually did this. Morons. But I think I see a business void that desperately needs to be filled: gay anti-war psychic network.
Yeah, that is amazing seeing how DADT [Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell] wasn’t even put in place until 18 years after Harvey Milk died. I think I know what the first crew will look like:
Or the crew could look like this:
Either way, I know what the ship’s theme song will be:
