Garden State Equality and Frivolous Deeds of Treachery

“It was a mistake,” you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.”

David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary

By Tommy DeSeno

beheadingGarden State Equality (GSE) is a civic group that supports equality for the LGBT community in New Jersey.  Started in 2004 by Steven Goldstein, a college professor and activist, it is run today by 25 year old Christian Fuscarino.  It’s powerful, with politicians and news media always at their events.

GSE has involved itself in protests of people, both business professionals and politicians, who they think are on the wrong side of LGBT equality.

For instance, GSE’s last protest was against Jack Kelly, an Ocean County Freeholder trying to get a cushy state job, seemingly to pad his pension.  A dozen years ago he wanted to deny pension benefits to the lesbian partner of the dying Laurel Hester, a sheriff’s officer, stating it would “hurt the sanctity of marriage.”  Before that, GSE protested Scott Garrett, a New Jersey Republican Congressman over a comment he denies making.

This Memorial Day, Remember American Military Killed at the Urging of the Asbury Park Connected Sheikh, Taqi Usmani

By Tommy DeSeno

Sheikh Usmani

Sheikh Usmani

In Asbury Park, all the boardwalk buildings including Convention Hall, The Stone Pony and the Wonder Bar are owned by a Middle Eastern company named Capital Guidance, by way of a holding company they formed called Madison Marquette.  Capital Guidance operates Madison Marquette from their offices in Reston Virginia, amid the fastest growing Islamic concentration in the country.

Capital Guidance employs a Sharia Advisory Board chaired by a Pakistani Mufti, Muhammad Taqi Usmani.  When it comes to human rights, this scrivener of that area’s Sharia laws is a monster. He has a 30 year career of jailing gays, beating women for being raped and like atrocities, such as supporting modern slavery.

Bruce Springsteen, Will You Support Asbury Park Gays Against Bigotry and Refuse to Play There, Too?

 

By Tommy DeSeno

Tommy DeSeno1Greetings, Bruce!

I hail from the City of your choosing, Asbury Park New Jersey.  A fan since you named your first album after our fair city; I’m one of your loyal “kids huddled on the beach in the mist.”  We’ve met on those nights you thrill the locals with impromptu performances at the Stone Pony, which made that venue famous.

I’ve noticed your occasional forays into politics, including your concert cancellation in North Carolina to protest laws about who gets to use what bathroom, and who gets to sue for discrimination.
