Republi-Nazi Governor of Rhode Island Vetoes Same-Sex Funeral Rights

Bill would have allowed Same-Sex Partners the same rights taken for granted by married heterosexuals

Ultra right wing Republican Gov. Don Carcieri, of Rhode Island vetoed legislation Tuesday that would give same-sex couples in Rhode Island the same right to plan the funerals of their late partners as married heterosexual couples. (CBS)

The Christo-fascist ultra right wing Republican said the proposed protection represents a “disturbing trend” of the incremental erosion of heterosexual marriage. Rhode Island does not recognize same-sex marriage.

Carcieri took the typical lynch mob leader tact of proposing to put the equal rights of a minority up to vote. “If the General Assembly believes it would like to address the issue of domestic partnership, it should place the issue on the ballot and let the people of the State of Rhode Island decide,”

[Even though I am an atheist I have read the Bible from cover to cover and I seem to recall Pontus Pilate putting Jesus Christ’s life to the vote of a similar mob.  And these fucks actually call themselves Christians.  They better hope I’m right and there is no god.]

Democrats hold a veto-proof majority in the Legislature and will hopefully override this Nazi scumbag’s bigotry.

From AP

“Sen. Rhoda Perry and Rep. David Segal, the bill sponsors, said they would seek to override the veto. They proposed the legislation after one of their constituents was unable to retrieve the body of his late partner from the state medical examiner for weeks because they weren’t married or next-of-kin.

Gay rights supporters were indignant at the veto.

“It is absolutely unconscionable that Gov. Carcieri would step in the middle of people being able to take care of their loved ones at such a sorrowful time,” said Kathy Kushnir, executive director of Marriage Equality Rhode Island, which advocates for gay marriage. “Why would he make it more difficult? I just don’t get it.”

The proposed funeral planning rights would apply to same-sex couples who have had a relationship for at least one year and pass other tests, such as owning property together. Carcieri said some of the guidelines were vague.”

    This is twisted.

    What sort of hatred is burning inside someone to make a decision like this?

      The Republicans are American Nazis. They are white supremacists, misogynists Christo-Fascist bigots. One and all. Last week they destroyed one of their own even though she was in a district that had been Republican since the Civil War. She wasn’t enough of a Nazi. They are driving members from their party and seem hell bent on causing another Civil War.

      Their economic policies favor this rich white Christian elite and have shoved the workers displaced from out sourced decent jobs into retail where they sell over advertised cheap crap from China to others who work the same crappy jobs.

      Our decent jobs every thing from manufacturing to tech support and office work are now in China and India. Workers have no rights, the unions have been destroyed. Many of us have no health care.

      People like this governor are just taking it to the next logical step in the progression that distinguishes Nazism from Fascism with which it shares a common government corporate alliance. LGBT/T people are the new scapegoat that take the place of Jews. The same for Blacks and Latinos. We have upwards of a quarter of young Black men in the criminal justice system and something like 30-40% unemployment in that class.

      If we continue on this path, and hopefully Obama can change the course we will have either full blown Nazism or a revolution of the have nots in this country.
