Of Course, When You Really Think About It…

Joe Solmonese actually is the perfect person to be the head of a political party’s national convention that is being held in the state of Wisconsin.

After all, Wisconsin is the ONLY remaining state with a gay rights law that does not include trans people along with LGBs.

I guess the only surprise is that Elizabeth Birch, Winnie Stachelberg and Liz Seaton weren’t also announced as his official posse.

Democratic National Committee to Trans People: Drop Dead!

That should be the title to any news item announcing this development:

Joe Solmonese, a former head of the Human Rights Campaign, has been named chief executive for the 2020 Democratic National Convention Committee in Milwaukee.

But, of course, it won’t be.

And, of course, just like the Washington Blade item from which I took that sentence, it is ever so unlikely that any media outlet that has a history of dutifully acting as a scrivener for organs of Gay, Inc., will bother reminding people – particularly the young, cutesy, telegenic trans people that the Human Right Scampaign now employs to con other trans people into forgetting that it was and always will be the most transphobic entity in the nation – that Solmonese committed criminal fraud in 2007 when he told Southern Comfort’s attendees that his organization would oppose any non-inclusive version of ENDA, knowing full well (1) that his organization had no intention of opposing a non-inclusive ENDA and (2) that his patently false claim would entice at least some trans people and trans rights supporters who otherwise would never have joined HRC and/or donated money to the Scampaign to join it and/or donate money to it.

Oh…

And let us not forget all of the ever-so-creative ways that Appletini Joe (and Queen Elizabeth III before him) utilized to con all who would listen into believing that HRC had over a half-million ‘members.’

When Paul Manafort finally enters federal prison to serve his time for fraud, Joe Solmonese should be there to welcome him there as his cellmate.

Instead, he’s living the cushy life he earned by helping to ensure that there will never be federal LGBT employment anti-discrimination during my working lifetime.

But rest assured, Joe.  You’re not at the top of my list of thoroughly disgusting transphobes who have never paid a price for their thoroughly disgusting transphobia.

That position is reserved for whoever made the decision to insult trans people by opening the door to your political casket to give you yet another undeserved opportunity that no trans person was ever considered for.
