Dems … see the community as an ATM
[L]ately we seem to be treated solely as an ATM for the party, with our civil rights seeming an afterthought or burden.
This has been bantered around, and a lot of people feel they’ve been treated like an ATM by the Dems and the HRC in their “fights for equality.” HRC in their quest to promote Democratic candidates and causes under the banner of equality have forgotten their way, but they sure haven’t forgotten how to make money.
Feeding on the LGBT community’s affluence is something that Dems and the HRC are good at and what a better way than to offer credit?
With every purchase you make the HRC gets money. Isn’t that special? This isn’t a card that I’ll be getting any time soon because first of all I don’t need any more credit, and secondly, the HRC hasn’t done much except be cheerleaders for the Democratic caucus while the Democrats remain spineless on issues concerning LGBT equality. The “T” community has especially felt the effects of the lack of true support. They don’t need my money, what they need is to re-prioritize. And frankly, I don’t want to be used metaphorically or literally as an ATM by any organization unless my fees are paid.
