Cindy McCain Vs. John McCain: She Says Our Government Messages That Bullying Is Acceptable (UPDATED)
John McCain, one of the leading proponents of retaining “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” is a major part of the government that wife Cindy blasts in this anti-bullying video. As AMERICAblog put it:
Cindy McCain joined a number of celebrities in a video about gay youth suicide and bullying. Mrs. McCain’s part of the video condemned DADT and then accused our government of sending bullies a message that what they do is okay.
The woman basically accused her husband of sharing the blame for gay kids killing themselves.
Cindy McCain says, “Religions and political leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future … they can’t serve our country openly…Our government treats the LGBT community like second class citizens.”
UPDATE: After much attention in the blogosphere, Cindy McCain Tweeted:
@CindyhM1 Cindy McCain I fully support the NOH8 campaign and all it stands for and am proud to be a part of it. But I stand by my husband’s stance on DADT.
