Camenker: Why can't we have LGB with our Tea?

by Jeremy Hooper

You know that TEAbag situation that America is facing today?

No, not that one. The one where outraged members of Team Anti-Obama are gathering to protest the president's policies on -- well, we don't think many of them even know WHAT they're protesting, only that they don't like the guy or his "socialist" ideas. So it's tax day, they're already pissed, so why not raise an angry fist?

Well anyway, there's at least one social conservative who's keeping his kettle off today's right wing fire. Why? Well, because he, an obsessive about all things queer, is pissed that his area's TEA party won't fully enough allow for the brewing of gay condemnations. This from One News Now:

One of the featured speakers at the Boston event will be Massachusetts Family Institute president Kris Mineau, whose will focus on taxes and how they affect the American family. However, Brian Camenker of the pro-family group MassResistance says he will not be in attendance because he claims that [organizer Christen Varley] will not allow pro-family issues to be discussed.

"[A]nd I said to her, 'But we're talking, for instance, in our situation about the hundreds of thousands of dollars, nearly a million dollars, going for homosexual programs in the public schools,'" Camenker explains. "And she said that she understands that, but that there might be people there who support those programs and support the homosexual agenda and that they didn't want to offend them."

Oh, Brian. You really have to find another hobby, buddy. This anti-gay thing that you've got going is getting as stale as day-old Earl Grey.

For her part, Varley claims she actually didn't dictate how Camenker conduct himself. For our part, we are desperately refraining from making yet another teabag joke built off the word "dic-tate."

Your thoughts

LGBT Americans should protest the tax inequality they have in their relationships. At least there is something to unite with the tax revolt people.

I could recommend these dipshits re-enact the burning of the Gaspee. That pre-dated the Boston Tea Party by a year or two. And while the Boston event was just a merchant vessel, the Gaspee was a tax ship.

No, no, no ALL Just the Beginnnnnnning.... They are going to do it all again on July 4...
I mean they might as well protest that the country extists at all right? It's coming...
HUFF PO calls them Iced-Tea Parties... but they will be especially sweet in the South, right?

The LGBT community needs to unite.
