Good! It’s about time he spoke up!

What happened that night should NOT be tolerated! At all!

During a fundraiser in San Jose, CA, President Barack Obama openly condemned the audience members at the Fox News-Google GOP Presidential debate in Orlando, who booed and jeered soldier Stephen Hill, currently deployed in Iraq, for his sexual preference!

Obama was quoted as saying:

“I mean has anybody been watching the debates lately? You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare. And booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay. That’s not reflective of who we are. This is a choice about the fundamental direction of our country. 2008 was an important direction. 2012 is a more important election.”

Well-said!

It’s absolutely terrifying to think about how truly ignorant and hateful some of these candidates are – and even more so that they seem to have an audience to cheer their bigotry on!

Keep on standing up to hate, Obama!

Enough is enough!
