This is from the latest begging letter from Garden State Equality (GSE) – the folks who said that all they wanted was to pass same-sex marriage and they would be satisfied. Hey, if they ever were “satisfied” there would be no reason for groups like Garden State Equality to exist and they’d all be in fear of losing their payday. They can’t let that happen… and so they stoke the politics of fear…
“We’ve passed 222 civil rights laws in New Jersey protecting the LGBTQ community. And we’re not slowing down, because there’s more work to do.
In 2019, we’re going to ban the gay and trans panic defense, work to end LGBTQ youth homelessness, fight back against Trump’s transgender military ban, and push to pass the Equality Act. And we’ll continue our existing work for the LGBTQ community to build safe schools, expand healthcare, and support older adult populations.
In the last 12 months, we passed six new pro-equality laws that make our state stronger and safer for LGBTQ people.
Just last week alone: Governor Murphy signed the LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum bill into law—the second of its kind in the entire nation—and the historic Babs Siperstein Law went into effect, allowing transgender New Jerseyans to update their birth certificate without restrictions.
We know this fight means just as much to you as it does to us, and that’s why we need your help. We never would have made this much historic progress without you…”
… And then they hit their donors up for money.
Meanwhile, if those donors pay property taxes… they will continue to get screwed. And if they own businesses… screwed again. And when it rains… screwed and screwed again.
See, it isn’t about who you sleep with that brings people together. That’s kind of personal. What is universal is the screwing we’re all getting from the Trenton Democrats and their master screw-up-in-charge Governor Phil Murphy.
Groups like Garden State Equality (GSE) are masters at the politics of fear – and masters at using it to get paid. The professional political class in Trenton appreciates their services because so long as people are focused on stuff like “the transgender military ban” they won’t notice the fact that they are getting poorer, taxed more, regulated more, less free.
222 new laws… Nothing on property taxes.
