As you may have heard, the first Harvey Milk commemorative stamps were released for sale by the US Postal Service last week. Now, a group that can always be counted on to say dumb and incendiary things vis a vis gay people, the American Family Association, has come out urging people not to accept mail bearing these stamps. "This is not diversity," they said in a press release. "This is perversity."
Of course, all the coverage of their press release in the liberal media is playing into their hand, but hey! It's fun to point fingers at those with comically anachronistic views!
The AFA noted a few days ago that one of the people lobbying for the Harvey Milk stamp was drag queen and "former transsexual prostitute" Nicole Murray Ramirez (pictured here at Jose Sarria's funeral last year), who is the current Empress, Queen Mother of the Americas in the Imperial Court.
Now they've hit on this new tactic, in which they're encouraging anyone who will listen to write "Return to Sender" on any mail they get bearing this stamp. Also, they're pissed that the USPS will honor the country's first openly gay politician, but not a religious figure.
From the release:
Honoring predator Harvey Milk on a U.S. postage stamp is disturbing to say the least. Harvey Milk was a very disreputable man and used his charm and power to prey on young boys with emotional problems and drug addiction. He is the last person we should be featuring on a stamp.
Note the hypocrisy of the postal service’s “Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee,” which claims it “commemorates positive contributions to American life, history, and culture,” but specifically states stamps “shall not be issued to honor religious institutions or individuals whose principal achievements are associated with religious undertakings or beliefs.”
Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and sordid biography of Milk in "The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk.”
According to Shilts, Milk repeatedly engaged in adult-child sex and advocated for multiple homosexual relationships at the same time.
Unfortunately, the deed is done. The United States Postal Service honored a child predator at the whim of a drag queen.
Furthermore, the radical homosexual lobby will undoubtedly encourage businesses to use these stamps -- all in the name of inclusiveness, political correctness and diversity. This is not diversity; this is perversity.
What you can do
1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.
2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write ‘Return to Sender” on the envelope and tell your postman you won’t accept it.
Not that we should have to dignify this, but, Harvey Milk was not a child predator. And the AFA is most famous for boycotting companies that support gay rights and gay marriage, including a 2008 campaign against Hallmark for selling same-sex wedding cards, and they have called the American Girl doll company "a pro-abortion, pro-lesbian advocacy group." They have been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
