President celebrates Harvey Milk - what a guy!

Kirsten Andersen, "White House to hold event unveiling postage stamp commemorating child sexual predator Harvey Milk" (, May 19, 2014):
President Obama's White House will host a dedication ceremony for a new U.S. postage stamp commemorating Harvey Milk, the infamous homosexual activist who became the first openly gay elected official in California in 1977. However, friends and foes alike say Milk was more than an elected official – he was also a child sexual predator whose partners had a habit of killing themselves.

The predatory nature of Milk's personal relationships led at least two of his young sexual partners to commit suicide – one of them Jack Galen McKinley, a 16-year-old runaway from Maryland.

A biography about Milk written by his close friend and fellow homosexual Randy Shilts states that, in addition to the 16-year-old runaway, Milk had other relationships with underage boys as well, indicating that Milk was a statutory rapist....
And there's more!

Daniel J. Flynn, "Drinking Harvey Milk’s Kool-Aid" (City Journal, May 21, 2014):
Nine days prior to Milk's death, more than 900 followers of Jim Jones – many of them campaign workers for Milk – perished in the most ghastly set of murder-suicides in modern history. Before the congregants of the Peoples Temple drank Jim Jones's deadly Kool-Aid, Harvey Milk and much of San Francisco's ruling class had already figuratively imbibed. Milk occasionally spoke at Jones's San Francisco – based headquarters, promoted Jones through his newspaper columns, and defended the Peoples Temple from its growing legion of critics. Jones provided conscripted 'volunteers' for Milk's campaigns to distribute leaflets by the tens of thousands. Milk returned the favor by abusing his position of public trust on behalf of Jones's criminal endeavors....
What a guy.
