David Cameron MP Prime Minister - It gets better
Wow, this is huge! The leader of the Conservative party in Britain taking the time to make a video aimed at glbt youth in the UK. Can you even imagine a Conservative or a Republican in the United States doing this?
No - me neither. And that is tragic.
Nope, instead we have here in the good ole U.S.: Senator Grampy McCain doing his best to slap the faces of our gay and lesbian service members by blocking repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and the former President Bush and Republican House and Senate members taking marching orders from the likes of Jerry Falwell, James Dobson, and Tony Perkins on who can and cannot get married, Republican lawmakers blocking all laws that would protect glbts from hate crimes, or bullying, or being fired from their jobs, or kicked out of their homes, or denied access to their hospitalized loved one simply because of their sexual orientation, and even sitting Senators and House members running over to Uganda to help them craft anti-gay laws that would actually execute gays and imprison those who do not turn them in. And I could go on and on, but why bother. It is too depressing
My god what a ludicrous, backward, uncivilized place we look like right now. It's rather embarrassing isn't it? Well, thank you David Cameron for showing us here in the United States how it's done - not that we would ever take lessons from anyone else, being the exceptional country we are...
