The government of the U.S.A. timed the release of the following two pieces of information to hit the news on the same day, June 2, 2001, the better to declare us persona non grata in both the military and as civilian citizens. This was an intentional act.
"The military discharged more gay service members in 2000 than any year since 1994, when the controversial 'don't ask, don't tell, don't pursue [don't harrass]' policy went into effect, the Pentagon said yesterday.
The Department of Defense released figures showing that 1,212 members of the armed services were discharged for homosexual conduct or for stating their homosexuality - a 17.2% increase from 1,034 the previous year."
San Francisco Chronicle, June 2, 2001.
"The 'president' believes every person should be treated with dignity and respect but he does not believe in politicizing people's sexual orientation."
Scott McClellan, then-spokesman for The Wuss, explaining The Wuss's refusal to proclaim June as Gay and Lesbian Pride Month, June 2, 2001.
"In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, as 'right-to-work.'
It provides no 'rights' and no 'work.'
Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom to collective bargain....
We demand this fraud to be stopped."
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
