Lady Gaga, who led a rally on the repeal of ‘Dont Ask Don’t Tell’ earlier this week is speaking out about the Senate’s choice to pull the plug on any efforts that would have the rule changed.
“Today was an enormous DISAPPOINTMENT, for myself, and for many young American people. Not only because Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was not repealed by our Senators, but moreover because LEGISLATIVE PROCEDURE is being abused to stop public business, public debates, from happening while America is watching. There was a debate today, we just didn’t get to watch it. Instead, it has been customary now for antiquated procedures and partisan politics to take precedence over debate, America’s needs, and today, sadly, over the needs of US troops. I will keep fighting, I will not give up. I am passionate about the rights of the LGBT Community and SLDN and I will continue to activate as many young people as I can, and encourage them to get politically involved in their future.”
Very impressed with her level of activism.
