. . .the Armed Liberal thinks “the gay community would be out for blood.” He’s quoting cited a post from “the Petrelis Files” where White House senior advisor “Valerie Jarrett talking to gay journo Jonathan Capehart:”
Capeheart: One of the things you’ve put a spotlight on, and to veer sharply away from infrastructure, and that was on the rash of suicides of gay youth. You gave a speech to the Human Rights Campaign annual dinner, where you named the victims. You talked about the President’s commitment to making a more inclusive, tolerant, accepting country. Why did you feel it was important to deliver that message, and deliver it there?
Jarrett: Well, I think what we’ve seen over the last few months are some very tragic deaths of young people, our children. And avoidable deaths. They were driven to commit suicide because they were being harassed in school, and driven to do something that no child should ever be driven to do. And in many cases, the parents are doing a good job. Their families are supportive. Before I spoke at the HRC dinner, I met backstage with Tammy Aarberg, her son Andrew. These are good people. They were aware that their son was gay. They embraced him. They loved him. They supported his lifestyle choice.
Armed Liberal via Instapundit. Lifestyle choice? And I thought it was only the social conservatives who used the word, “lifestyle” to describe gays. Petrelis finds it “doubly offensive that [gay journalist] Capehart makes no effort to point out how dangerous Jarrett’s thinking is.”
Maybe he was hoping to join Joe Solmonese on one of hid fancy fundraising jaunts for the DNC.
