Whoopi Goldberg’s FightBackPac.Org PSA for Gay Marriage
Well, we are stuck with the Whoopster. She can be outrageously misguided on occasion–I cannot forgive her for excusing her great friend Roman Polanski, for example, for that little thirty-year-old child rape charge. However, when she stands up on the right side, she’s formidable.
Hat tip to Rod 2.0. From The Advocate:
In the video released Tuesday, the native New Yorker and cohost of The View announces that she is joining the PAC’s fight to remove the state senators who voted against the marriage equality bill last year.
Fight Back New York helped contribute to the defeat of antigay Democrat Bill Stachowski in this year’s primary election in Buffalo, with winner Tim Kennedy now facing a tough general election. The group is also trying to unseat long-time Republican incumbent Frank Padavan in Queens.
Goldberg joins Sex in the City 2 star Cynthia Nixon, actress Rosie Perez, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin in joining the fight to oust senators opposed to gay marriage.
In her ad, Perez says New York State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr., the Senate’s most vocal opponent of gay marriage, does not speak for the majority of New York Latinos.
“Where I’m from, they’ve got this saying: ‘Whatever creams your Twinkie.’ You know what I’m saying? Live and let live,” she says.
