Did Racism Drive Gay Activist Protesters to Heckle Obama?

So President Obama faced a few hecklers on Monday who went after him about the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

Take a gander, gander takers!

Now I, for one, think it's awesome to see gay activists moving beyond the easy targets. Usually, they rag on Mormons, because they'll take it, but ignore black churches because they won't. So now, for once, they actually spoke truth to power.

But I wonder, couldn't this heckling be a precursor to violent extremism? And could this agitation toward our president, said to be based on policy, really be thinly veiled racism? I mean, the president did say he agreed with this gay group and yet they still heckled.

Perhaps the members of Get Equal should look in the mirror and ask themselves why they're so uncomfortable with a black man in the Oval Office. Maybe Chris Matthews could ask this question for them while Olbermann holds the mirror.

But don't hold your breath — those hecklers weren't Tea Partiers.

Anyway, I'd support these activists if they took an active interest in foreign policy, our military, the War on Terror and all the work done to fight evil around the globe. But come on: Activists are only interested in military matters when it pertains to their cause. To them, the military is just something else to shout at.

Look, I have no idea how gays in the military might affect battle. But in the end, war is about winning. I want to win. If gays said, "We want a stronger, deadlier military and we want to be part of that" then I would be behind them 100 percent.

And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophobe who's not invited to my beach house this weekend.
