Right wing websites angry President Obama includes LGBT community in Thanksgiving proclamation


Yesterday, President Obama's Thanksgiving proclamation included a veiled inclusion of the LGBT community as "first and foremost Americans." Here's a quote from the statement:

"Thanksgiving offers each of us the chance to count our many blessings -- the freedoms we enjoy, the time we spend with loved ones, the brave men and women who defend our Nation at home and abroad.

"This tradition reminds us that no matter what our background or beliefs, no matter who we are or who we love, at our core we are first and foremost Americans.

"NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 28, 2013, as a National Day of Thanksgiving."

Nice, friendly and warm, right?

You should read the ranting going on over on conservative websites and the names the President is being called because he included EVERYONE in his proclamation.

It really is incredible, and no wonder a Republican hasn't won the popular vote in the past six Presidential elections.

Go back and read the quote above then head over and check out some of the comments on the right wing "news" site CNSnews.

The hate is pretty amazing.
