The occupier of the White House has his priorities. Even though the world is imploding around him, heâ€™s got time for vacations, golf and, of course, gayness. He took time from ignoring important world events to recognize an even more unimportant one, the 2014 Gay Games, being held in Cleveland, OH.
What constitutes a gay game doesnâ€™t really matter. Anytime Obama can promote spit-swapping among the same sex or a sexual deviation of any kind, heâ€™s all over it. While other â€œpresidentsâ€ defined reading as fundamental, Obamaâ€™s pushing other things. Homosexuality is part of his â€œfunâ€daâ€œmentalâ€ transformation of America.
Obama recognized in his taped speech that the last time the event was held in the United States was in 2006, in his hometown of Chicago. He failed to mention whether he actually attended or participated in that event.
As is always the case, he made use of a media moment to cite his own â€œachievements,â€ with this being an opportunity to recognize himself for promoting rights and special privileges for homosexuals. He said, â€œIâ€™m proud of my administrationâ€™s record and of the citizens whoâ€™ve helped push for justice.â€
While he doesnâ€™t take a public stand with Christians who are being beheaded in Iraq, Obama did speak to the homosexuals in countries where they are â€œpersecuted,â€ explaining how the â€œvery ideaâ€ of America is to him, a homosexual concept. He said â€œYou should know that the United States stands with you and for your human rights, just as our athletes stand with you on the field at these games.â€
He added, â€œAfter all, the very idea of America is that no matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, or who you love, you can make it if you try. Thatâ€™s who we are. Thatâ€™s who weÂ shouldÂ continually strive to be. â€
Well said, Obama, but not true. Many people try and fail, some never succeed. But it sounds good and they did applaud and thatâ€™s what matters. Got to feed the oversized ego; great putt, great joke, great speech, youâ€™re so wonderful, pink is definitely your color.
Obama closed out his address saying, â€œWeâ€™re also a country that loves competition, so letâ€™s get these games underway. Good luck to the athletes, have a great time in Cleveland and Akron, and go, Team USA!â€
Olympians everywhere have now been equated with this event diminshed. This event is not the Olympics, regardless of what the occupier of the White House proclaims and they are not Team USA.
The event is also not about their so-called inclusiveness anymore than the NAACP is. This is an exclusive homosexual event, the opposite of inclusiveness, for people who canâ€™t get into the real Olympics or other real sporting events. Claims to the contrary, including those by their organizers, donâ€™t make it so.
Hollie Ksiezyk, a co-chair for the event said, â€œThe Gay Games is thrilled to have President Obama take his time to show his commitment to the Gamesâ€™ mission of inclusion, participation and personal best.â€
Her co-chair, Steve Sokany, (Supposedly his real name) said, â€œIt was a special moment that no one in the arena will forget and a great way to kick off the exciting Games week.â€
Connie Schultz, a journalist who is married to Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown tweeted that they were both â€œdeeply movedâ€ by the opening ceremony.
That deep movement could be from any number of causes, and they may want to get checked. Hopefully it will pass once they’ve left the arena.
