Alan Cumming On Obama: He's Done "Diddly Squat" For Gays

Alanobama Alan Cumming has, in the past, vocally supported Barack Obama politically and in other ways. It seems like these days, the bisexual actor has completely changed his tune. He's now come out against the president and has some pretty harsh words for him. He tells the Herald Scotland:

“We keep hearing that Obama is an ally, that ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ will end under his watch, but what do we actually get? Diddly squat thus far on a federal level, and in addition to that some very offensive statements that would have made the Republicans look bad. When America is full of hatred of all kinds, but especially hatred towards young gay people, what message is the President sending when he repeatedly goes out of his way to spread the message that the gay population is not worthy of the respect that everyone else is?"

  1. I am sorry... I find very little difference between Democrats who do nothing for us silently, and Republicans who do nothing for us loudly. At the end of the day...the LGBT community get nothing. I have been patient. I waited through 6 years of Clinton fighting a Republican Congress, 6 years of Bush with a Republican Congress, and 2 years of Bush vetoing a Democratic Congress. I finally got a Democratic President and an overwhelming Democratic Congress... and what did the LGBT community get? JACK SH*T. I am in Illinois and of course I am going to vote for Quinn and Giannoulias. Brady and Kirk and whack nuts. But Obama can go f*ck himself in 2012. Mitch Daniels may be a Republican, be he's moderate and he will leave the LGBT community alone. At least he won't lie to us and make promises he has no intention of keeping.

  2. Was Alan around for the past 8 years?!?! Shut the *uck up about Obama. Things are going to change slowly, people. As long as we don't go speeding backwards, I'll support him.

    Love your work, Cummings, but shut it.

  3. If any gay is to criticize Obama, let it be one who is actually effected by what he claims Obama is not doing for us. That was most definitely exclude the likes of Alan Cummings - who I recently saw hanging out at The Cock, a bar here in NYC notorious for being a pick-up spotted. Therefore, no man seeking the right to get married would be seen there.
    Plus there is a much bigger community that Obama must tend to - the American community, which is beyond our little gay one. Those criticizing Obama need to take note of that.
    I got so annoyed when I heard of this post and how many people are ignorant enough to agree. I wrote a post on my blog to address this brand of ignorant (and as the picture would suggest, drunken) rambling.

  4. Alan is a fan of mine but he is so wrong about Pres. Obama. Considering that no other president has done "diddly" for us how can he state this?
