Repeal DADT message from Gaga
Hi guys, it’s Gaga. I’m just here to give you all here an update on what’s going on in Congress with ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’. Right now, we’re looking at tomorrow being a very important date for you guys all to be really paying attention. The Senate needs to get this bill passed this year to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ otherwise it could take years for it to happen, social repression is currently running rampant in this country, as many of you know. Kids are being led to believe that it’s okay to hate and condemn based on our differences, and this recent horrific news of gay suicides is really proof of out social repression, and ultimately, government repression that is killing our youth. We have to end this law, because it reinforces discrimination, and it’s setting a bad example. Tomorrow, the Pentagon will release its studies to implement the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’. We’ve known for many years that an overwhelming majority of Americans are ready to repeal, and according to these recent statistics and studies, the Pentagon studies show that the majority of men and women in uniform, are soldiers that feel the same way. Which is great news. Senators, you have been put under this by me, and by the people of this country. You said you would debate and address this law when the Pentagon returned with a strategy, and tomorrow morning, you will have it. So, will you keep your word? Please keep your word. Little monsters, go to sldn.org/gaga to join me and make repeal happen now. I love you all so much, and just as a side note, as a performer, this issue means so much to me, and I know that sometimes political activism, when you’re a pop singer, can be kind of trivial, but in truth, I feel very close to all of you, and I feel like I share a very special connection with my fans. That I feel like I can speak for you, and you’re screaming, “please end this law, equality for all.” Bye.
