Harvey Milk Day 2021 is on Saturday, May 22, 2021: What do you think of harvey milk day?
Saturday, May 22, 2021 is Harvey Milk Day 2021.
I am so sick of the gays and liberals playing the victim and wanting to follow the liberal' path of civil rights- Jessie Jackson's "getting even with whitey" instead of Dr King's path- forgiveness, healing wounds and uniting the people.
Gays are people and deserve respect but they don't deserve "special" rules, "special" treatment and the double standards liberals shower upon selfish interest groups who carry the socialist flag along with the flag of their own cause.
No holidays comparing gays to heroes and victims, they are neither.
edit- Texas Joe- nope, liberal spin and distortion,
Dan White the murderer of Milk, was a fellow democrat who used to get along well with Milk and later had a falling out, he killed Milk because Milk had a hand (not a reach around) in getting Dan White fired, the murder of Harvey Milk was motivated by a disgruntled employee because he lost his job, Harvey Milk was not murdered because he was gay, he was simply someone murdered that happened to be gay. Your attempt to martyr Harvey Milk is typical dishonesty from liberals.
What are some inspirational quotes by Harvey Milk?
"My name is Harvey Milk and I'm here to recruit you." Harvey Milk
"I cannot prevent anyone from getting angry, or mad, or frustrated. I can only hope that they'll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects ... I hope that every professional gay will say 'enough', come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help." Harvey Milk, 1978
"I fully realize that a person who stands for what I stand for, an activist, a gay activist, becomes the target or the potential target for a person who is insecure, terrified, afraid, or very disturbed with themselves." Harvey Milk
"If I turned around every time somebody called me a faggot, I'd be walking backward - and I don't want to walk backward." Harvey Milk
"If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door." Harvey Milk
"The fact is that more people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than for any other single reason. That, that my friends, is true perversion.." Harvey Milk
"I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you... And you... And you... Gotta give em hope." Harvey Milk
"All men are created equal. No matter how hard you try, you can never erase those words." Harvey Milk
"You're going to meet the most extraordinary men, the sexiest, brightest, funniest men, and you're going to fall in love with so many of them, and you won't know until the end of your life who your greatest friends were or your greatest love was." Harvey Milk
"It's not my victory, it's yours and yours and yours. If a gay can win, it means there is hope that the system can work for all minorities if we fight. We've given them hope." Harvey Milk
"All over the country, they're reading about me, and the story doesn't center on me being gay. It's just about a gay person who is doing his job." Harvey Milk
"It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions." Harvey Milk
"People thought the pope would run the country. But after six months in office, when Kennedy started to do things, people never questioned him again. If I do a good job, people won't care if I am green or have three heads." Harvey Milk
"I have tasted freedom. I will not give up that which I have tasted. I have a lot more to drink. For that reason, the political numbers game will be played. I know the rules of their game now and how to play it." Harvey Milk
"Some people call me the unofficial mayor of Castro Street." Harvey Milk
"Burst down those closet doors once and for all, and stand up and start to fight." Harvey Milk
"All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential." Harvey Milk
Hope that helps! Have a great day!
Should we dedicate a day off for Harvey Milk ?
The truth is, Milk was NOT killed because he was gay.
He just happened to BE gay.
If your gay and get killed that makes you a hero?
He was killed by a disgruntled former city employee over the loss of his job.
Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, another city supervisor who had recently resigned and wanted his job back.
Do a little research!
