Tell House Republicans They Are a Disgrace for Voting Against LGBTQ Equality!

Tell House Republicans They Are a Disgrace for Voting Against LGBTQ Equality!

SHAME ON YOU, HOUSE REPUBLICANS!

On May 19th, 2016, New York Democratic lawmaker Sean Maloney introduced an amendment to HR4974 which would have protected "the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of government contractors". Maloney introduced the bill after being told that he it was likely to pass with some Republican support. When Establishment Republicans found this out, they extended the voting time on the floor and used that extra time to convince their fellow Republicans to align with the Conservative voice of hatred as opposed to extending protections to hundreds of thousands of Americans. This is absolutely unacceptable. How anyone, let alone 200+ House members, can believe that civil rights of  lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees should not be acknowledged and upheld, is beyond me. 

U.S. lawmakers vote down LGBT rights measure

WASHINGTON Shouts of "shame, shame, shame" erupted in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday as Republican lawmakers narrowly defeated legislation to protect the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of government contractors.

We believe that the American Public should work hard to inform these Republicans as to the error of their ways, and we've provided an easy way for you to do so!

What Can I Do To Express My Utter Disgust with these House Republicans?

You can contact your local Republican Representative and make sure that they understand no one in this country should be robbed of their civil liberties, regardless of race, gender, creed or sexual orientation!

While Republicans claim to be fighting for traditionalist Americans, they forgo the actual American tradition - LIBERTY! Government Contractors take our tax dollars to fund their projects - OUR TAX DOLLARS should NOT be used to fund any organization that does not have significant measures in place to enforce basic workplace equality for all. All individuals within this country should be entitled to the same protections and respect that any other person in this country is entitled to. We should not mistreat people due to who they love, and we must force our lawmakers to understand that this injustice will not be tolerated.

Tell 'em what you think about them robbing your fellow Americans of their freedoms. Republicans, by allowing contractors to run over the rights of LGBTQ Americans, you have insulted the very core of our country, and we will not stand idle as you mistreat our fellow Americans!

Below are links to each Republican Fuck's public Twitter and Facebook pages, their public office numbers and addresses for you to write letters, as well as links to The Republican Party's main pages - tread onward and let the Republican'ts know that we believe in EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

(we here at the Bernie Directory generally spend our time and resources fighting the RepublicanLite team (aka Third Way/Establishment Democrats), but we couldn't sit by while these Conservative Fucks walk all over our fellow Americans. DO NOT let this trespass go unanswered! Facebook, email and Tweet these folks, letting them know that it is not okay to give unequal protection to United States Citizens!)
