This is an update to the item I linked to yesterday by Monica Roberts – about HRC’s gestapo-cum-Homeland Security tactics regarding pre-sicing the cops on those trans folks who have announced that they will have the temerity to protest the Homosexual Reich Campaign’s Houston dinner.
Queerty received a “note” from an “HRC staffer” about the post/situation:
Houston is not a unique situation. In fact, the same protests have happened in NY, DC and Philly. And at all three, the police were present to keep the order – and did not shut any protest down. So, why is Houston all of a sudden a hot bed of conspiracy theory about HRC calling in the swat teams?
The fact is that the standard procedure is when we are notified of a protest, then it is our obligation to notify the hotel/venue. The hotel/venue then takes the necessary precautions to make sure their guests are safe and that any protests happening outside of their property is also done so in a safe manner. One of those precautionary steps that the hotel/venue takes is to notify the local police department. This was done in DC, NYC, and Philadelphia previously without any problems, complaints, or conspiracy theories.
So, with all that being said we are looking forward to a great Houston dinner which will be attended by the Mayor of Houston. And was the case at previous dinners, those who want to wear their stickers and stand in protest will be more than welcome to do so.
Queerty’s summation was “And there you have it…”
As if to say: “Stupid trannies. Rights are for gays. Stop trying to stop us from keeping you third-class citizens while we make 7-figure salaries and hobnob.”
All it did was prove that some “HRC staffer” knows how to use e-mail.
Now, take a look at this piece of butyric-acid-scented, psychosis-addled histrionic nonsense that was posted in response to Queerty’s convenient revelation.
One isn’t surprised to find the truth far different than that apparently purposely misrepresented by one of Bilerico’s most advanced cases of Mad Tranny Disease. There are some great contributors there but they are vastly outnumbered [out-screamed] by the Tranninazis.
Contrary to the propaganda and cooked numbers of ENDA INSANE, there are many of us who both hate HRC generally for what it’s become AND are repulsed by the histrionic hissy fits of the lunatic fringe like the scribbler of the sourced article in the original thread.
If the latter and her fellow Tranny thugs had their way, Pennsylvania Avenue, Castro Street, and Greenwich Village would be lined with crosses bearing those who have been crucified upside down for having dared disagree with their political suicide position. Barney Frank’s would also, no doubt, be set on fire.
Now, as a few commenters have pointed out, Monica was incorrect about one thing – rent. The Rhode Island Avenue Cespool of Transphobia does own its own digs (which, apparently, is what donors’ money has paid for instead of meaningful education about trans issues.)
So, that aside, lets see what Monica actually said:
But it seems as though HRC has a problem with the Houston transgender community exercising their First Amendment rights. The National HRC office called the Houston Police Department in an attempt to shut down the protest.
The Scampaign can spin it any way they want – but don’t tell me that they aren’t hoping that news of advance calls to police departments won’t intimidate at least some trans protesters at some of their fraudfests. Its possible that Monica’s take was incorrect – but, even taking into account the response from “HRC staffer”, she still could be more accurate than not.
Moreover: Monica’s post was spurred by an e-mail alert sent around by Phyllis Frye.
I just finished a very pleasant meeting, in my law office with the Houston Police Department about the scheduled protest of the HRC event in Houston this Saturday from 4:30 to 7:30 pm, downtown at Polk and Avenue of the Americas (DETAILS PASTED BELOW).It seems that in response to my national Phyllabuster about our protest, …… GET THIS …… the National HRC called the Houston Police.HPD and I had a very nice meeting. I do not foresee any problems. HPD was so courteous that I was given a “Demonstration Guide” that they published in 2003 to assist citizens in expressing their 1st Amendment rights will not violating any laws. I told HPD that I would scan it and attach to my list. It is attached herein as good general information.
During the chat with HPD, I was also informed that HRC has also instructed the hotel security to ask us to leave if we attempt to pass out any written information or ask folks to wear our stickers.I always thought that HRC was big on education and discussion.Well, we will be there (read reposting below).and we will be peaceful,and we will be within the law,and we will be protected by HPD,and we will attempt to hand out our lapel stickers.
Sorry, “HRC staffer,” but, assuming that e-mail is an accurate portrayal of events, it advantage Monica (and trans folks.)
Monica also wrote:
The series of HRC dinner protests initiated by the transgender community not long after our ENDA betrayal in October 2007 has been conservatively estimated to have cost HRC $1 million dollars in lost donation revenue.
So I understand why they wanted to sic HPD on the trannies.
It is hard to prove exactly how much money the Scampaign has lost or not lost. But a commenter at Bilerico proclaimed Monica’s innaccurateness by citing a statement made by HRC folks at an HRC meeting.
HRC has been proven to be incapable of telling the truth.
Why should that – or the response to Monica by any “HRC staffer” or even Pee Wee Solmonese himself – be believed?
(And I won’t even mention Dana Beyer’s ridiculous offhand defense of the Scampaign that one can find amongst the comments to Monica’s piece.)
