    Harvey Milk, Jack Kemp to Get Posthumous Medals of Freedom

    Source: CNSNews.com (8-11-09)
    President Barack Obama this week will award the 2009 Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously to Harvey Milk, one of the nation’s first openly homosexual politicians, and to the late Jack Kemp, a leading proponent of supply side economics.

    They are among 16 people to be honored at a White House ceremony on Wednesday.

    Harvey Milk, an openly gay man elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, was shot and killed in November 1978 along with San Francisco Mayor George Moscone by Dan White, a former supervisor who had recently resigned and wanted his job back.

    Just last week, the California Assembly approved a bill designating May 22 as "Harvey Milk Day.” Conservatives complain that the bill will require all public schools to "conduct suitable commemorative exercises."

    Others receiving the 2009 Presidential Medal of Freedom on Wednesday include Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman on the nation’s highest court, and Desmond Tutu, an Anglican Archbishop who helped fight apartheid in South Africa.

    I think it is kind of telling what "change" Obama wants: Not only to praise the supposed importance of Blacks to the country, but also to reward people for their degenerative sexual perversions, with little else to their record.

    So Harvey Milk was a politician, and he was killed alongside his mayor. Wow - that probably happened to hundreds of people who will never receive a national medal for it. So basically, he is receiving his medal pretty much for his homosexuality, and the idol he represents to those sexual deviants, and those pushing such matters: Was it not just last year that there was a film made about this Milk guy?

    Oh, did I forget to mention - Harvey Milk was of Jewish extraction. Now, just why does that not suprise me at all?
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
