Why not give her an award for promoting democracy and human rights in Cuba ?

Oh, that's right. She hasn't done that, because she's a COMMUNIST !

When you promote gay rights all other sins are forgiven.
Heck if Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden had supported gay rights they'd be alive today and be praised by President Obama.
I agree. And the libs are always worshiping Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Uncle Joe Stalin and The Kennedys anyway.

YOU were the one screaming like a little bitch about Obama NOT allowing her to enter the country, now you are complaining about her coming here. Which is it?

STFU, you ignorant embarrassment.

Others in the thread might be interested to know the same Equality Forum event last year declared Israel to be the country focused on. And a small group of leftists protested peacefully outside the venue.

So the organizers are arguably at least trying for balance.

Because if she tried that in her country, she would probably be arrested.

She's been more pro glbt than any major, US politician, and for a longer time, and has had a bigger impact on glbt rights than any national politician here has on glbt rights, possibly excepting President Obama.
