The Human Rights Campaign’s 40 Years of Colluding With Sexual Predators
The HRC whored itself out to Cuomo, the way it had to Weinstein, to the Obamas and the Clintons. Like the rest of the elite coalition, its primary cause was party politics. And as the HRC head was helping Cuomo fight allegations of sexual harassment, it was no longer all that clear who had co-opted whom. Had HRC co-opted top Democrats or had they co-opted HRC? The HRC is as much about gay rights as about the power and profit of its donors. Gay rights is a great brand for wealthy people looking to influence politicians under the umbrella of civil rights. As feminists have argued, rape is really about power. So is the Human Rights Campaign.
