Milk told him, “Don’t tell your parents,”
It's midnight in America. Maybe it's 2 AM. It's Obama Time.
If only Jerry Sandusky had come out of the closet and become a gay icon, he could have gotten his own postage stamp. Just like this guy.
Gerard Dols told of how – as a physically disabled teen – the “very nice” Harvey Milk had encouraged him in 1977 to run away from his Minnesota home and come to San Francisco.
According to Dols, Milk told him, “Don’t tell your parents,”
In his glowing book “The Mayor of Castro Street,” Randy Shilts wrote of Milk’s “relationship” with the McKinley boy: ” … Sixteen-year-old McKinley was looking for some kind of father figure. … At 33, Milk was launching a new life, though he could hardly have imagined the unlikely direction toward which his new lover would pull him.”
Years later McKinley committed suicide.
If that doesn't deserve a postage stamp, I don't know what does. Harvey Milk's pedophilia makes this all the more ironic.
The bill instructs the governor to proclaim a “Harvey Milk Day” and designates “that date as having special significance in the public schools and educational institutions” and encourages them to “conduct suitable commemorative exercises.”
I guess having sex with older men would be a suitable commemorative exercise.
But Harvey Milk, deceased politician and gay icon, didn't just limit himself to molesting underage boys. It was much worse than that.
“Rev. Jones is widely known in the minority communities here and elsewhere as a man of the highest character, who has undertaken constructive remedies for social problems which have been amazing in their scope and effectiveness,” Supervisor Milk wrote President Jimmy Carter seven months before the Jonestown carnage.
The purpose of Milk’s letter was to aid and abet his powerful supporter’s abduction of a six-year-old boy. Milk’s missive to the president prophetically continued:
“Not only is the life of a child at stake, who currently has loving and protective parents in the Rev. and Mrs. Jones, but our official relations with Guyana could stand to be jeopardized, to the potentially great embarrassment of our State Department.”
John Stoen, the boy whose actual parents Milk libeled to the president as purveyors of “bold-faced lies” and blackmail attempts, perished at Jonestown.
Harvey Milk was part of a political establishment, that included Jerry Brown, that politically benefited from Jim Jones' Communist cult and protected his abuse of children.
December 17, 1978 - New York Times - Determined to help elect politicians friendly toward his People's Temple, the Rev. Jim Jones ordered what former temple members say was an organized campaign of fraudulent voting practices that included importing busloads of illegal voters to cast their ballots in this city's 1975 municipal elections.
Among those named by some of Mr. Jones's former followers as recipients of his political support were Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, both of whom were shot and killed in their City Hall offices, three weeks ago, allegedly by an enraged former city official.
Voter fraud isn't a problem. Just ask any Democrat.
Milk had used Temple volunteers, wrote endorsement letters, and, in a hand-written note, told Jones "my name is cut into stone in support of you - and your people."
None of that stopped Obama from awarding the Medal of Freedom to Harvey Milk. Bob "Filthy" Filner wanted to name a Navy submarine after Milk. And now the bankrupt post office will be giving Milk a stamp.
What's a few dead and molested kids between Democratic pals?
