Gov. Schwarzenegger Commemorates Harvey Milk

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayArnold SchwarzeneggerLGBT


We'd be more happy about this if we didn't see it as a means to appease the gay community because of the fall-out of Prop 8. But regardless, the recognition is rightly deserved.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a bill commemorating the remarkable openly gay politician, Harvey Milk. The bill states that May 22, Harvey's birthday, will now be honored as a day of remembrance and significance. Last year, the governor had originally vetoed the bill, claiming that it should be handled on a local level.

But as we said, there is a lot of bad blood between the gay community and the Californian government and Arnold is looking to mend fences. A spokesperson in his office was quoted saying:

"He really saw this signing as a way to honor the gay community in California…Milk has become much more of a symbol of the gay community."

It is a well respected and overdue honor for Harvey. We're sure his family and friends feel the same.

Just don't think it will make us forget anything else, Arnold!

    so let me get this straight…the republicans are welcoming and open to gays and the Barack Obama led democrats are standing in the way of the gay agenda.

    Good for him, bout time he does something to make people happy. Too bad he didn't put the fires out like he should of, now they have mud slides predicted, wtf was he thinking?

  3. 3

    Harvey Milk should be commemerated…what he did for San Francisco & the state of CA should send a message to the rest of America of what politicians who truly care about an issue can achieve.
    His senseless killing is brilliantly documented by Sean Penn in the movie dedicated to him.

    Perez honors the gay community by making up gender-skewing names such as saMANtha. You know, because lesbians are like men!


  5. 5

    Perez should not talk about politics. He sounds so stupid.

    The very same Americans that go on & on & on about Their Free Speech & Their rights are the same assholes that deny us & others our rights!!
    Frustrating but we will Overcome!!

    "Just don't think it will make us forget anything else, Arnold!"

    Forget what?

    YOU seem to forget that Schwarzenegger asked the supreme court to overturn Prop 8. That is not enough for you, Perez?

    Re: buck – Nope. Wrong again.

    Re: JigSaw – 10 LOL! That's just because Bush was such a P U S S Y! He bent over for corporate greed but the country took it up the ass.

  19. 19

    Thank you Gov. Schwarzenegger.
    Re: buck – One Republican doing the right thing will not earn the entire party praise. You are overstepping and incorrect, as usual.
    Howdy Sweetpiece! Howdy Jig!

    Re: sab1989 – …I'm pretty sure that a closet case killed him but didn't follow the story closely.

    Perez you are the WORST GAY representation for GAY RIGHTS I've ever read. Conservatives argue for GAY RIGHTS better then this!

    Hank Azzaria looks just like him

    Does this mean another state can have a straight appreciation day?!

  24. 24

    Will there be a parade, Mario? Will you be asked to stay away as you were for the march on Washington? Will you schedule another visit to see Mickey Mouse to bolster your wounded pride?

    I don't think the governor is the one to blame for the ban on prop 8, it was the people of the state of California, he did what he could, so get over it Perez.

  27. 27

    'there is a lot of bad blood between the gay community and the Californian government" –> hey, you've got a lot in common with the govt, eh Mario? Clearly there is a lot of bad blood between you and the gay community since they banned you from the Washington march (that you excitedly declared you'd be attending after it was announced.) Oh my. Hated by everyone, including your own brothers and sisters. Shameful.

    Well done my favorite pet monster!! Arnie needs some support. You peoples are actually going to have to show up and VOTE at the next election. Really??

    Arnie is a Lebenhauser. He saved my life. I saved his. Night after night. Arnie has a BIG secret to share. He is NOT normal. Neither am I. Neither are a few athletes. Neither is Sly Stallone. Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons are identical twins. Really?? Look. Wow. I saw them both born. You can see it?? Wow?? We want to free the world from oppression. We need HUMAN support. We Lebenhausers don't have voting cards. You do. YOU need to get out and support YOUR candidates. VOTE every single time you can. VOTE even if it is "just" to decide who sets the rules in your local library. Arnie is on a wire. HE NEEDS HELP!! The Rama-bananyan'nyan road is on fire now!! YOU must realize that rich, white middle class heterosexuals actually vote. YOU need to start VOTING!!!

    Shit; I've slipped right out of the Matrix right back into the X-Men files!! Wait; I hear Robert Downey Jr. doesn't really exist????? Robert Alias?? Anyone? Anyone?

    I wish blessings on Arnie and his dedicated family!! All of us!!

    PS: Harvey refuses to believe that I am in full support of the G*L*B*T community. Why; even when I approached this certain confirmed atheist today and said that I had been praying to him for his assistance; he still articulated the suspicion that I am using the G*L*B*T community as my platform and that I will abandon them as soon as I get the power and money. Oh, yeah. Then; he realized that the stories that U-Gene and I tell are freakingly similar…..

    I have Good News for a lot of people. Some wonderful people like John Lennon aka Elton John AND Joni Mitchell aka c'mon!! aka Janis Joplin have been used in a terrorist plot to overthrow God. No kidding. Weird semi-lobotomies and snot-green injections of bourne-erasing sheeza..

    God supports the G*L*B*T community. In every single way, shape or form that we will co-exist with "normal" heterosexuals on this God-given earth. Naturally, un-naturally, chemically or in other ways changed… Sexuality is a private matter. It should stay at home. NOT in the court-rooms of the world. THAT is my final answer.

    I would know. I have read more holy scriptures cover to cover than anyone now living on the face of this earth and I will face any religious and/or political leader to debate this fact. In PUBLIC and ON LIVE TELEVISION. I call Franklyn from Grand Valley as my only support. Jesus is a freebie. He has to be. You guys think he doesn't exist anymore.

    Re: clocita – You are an ass. There would have not been a Pro * had Arnold simply signed Mark Leno's bill years ago.

    On another note, when this site uses WE and US I can't help but picture Barbera and her mom taping away at a laptom trying to sound gay while Mario lies in bed with one of Bruce Vilanch's tossed out houseboys.

    Re: buck – hey Ass, Mark Leno wrote the bill, all Mr. Freeze did was sign it.
