How completely disgusting.
The American Family Association. Daily Kos reports:
The American Family Association (a designatedhate group that still attracts genuflecting Republican politicians for some reason) is very,very angry that the United States Post Office saw fit to print a stamp honoring the late Harvey Milk, and they’re not going to take it anymore. To the crazymobile!
What you can do…1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.
2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write ‘Return to Sender” on the envelope and tell your postman you won’t accept it.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME??
He was out and gay. He was elected a San Francisco Supervisor (their word for city council). He was murdered by a homophobic ex-cop who was also a supe.
How is any of that a reason to pitch a fit about his face on a stamp?
Maureen Brian says
Is someone starting a fund so that vast numbers of Harvey Milk stamped envelopes can be sent to arseholes throughout the land?
Ophelia Benson says
Oh that’s a good idea.
Martyr envy. Because, try and concoct as they are wont, they will never find a true martyr for Christendom in the modern world as sympathetic as a Milk or Shephard or Teena or …
Quick! Before all the puns are taken!
F [i'm not here, i'm gone] says
Oooh. Barely use them and I’m already stocked up on forever stamps. Maybe I’ll just have to get some to send a SAMSE.
Yes. Lurk at the mailbox or behind your door and wait to pounce! Also, good luck with that. And here’s hoping you actually successfully refuse some really important mail and hose yourself.
“We don’t understand how the postal system works.”
Giliell, professional cynic -Ilk- says
I hope they refuse to accept some very important mail and therefore get into lots of trouble
Al Dente says
“I don’t care that my million dollar lottery winnings are in this envelope, I’m not going to accept it because of the Harvey Milk stamp!”
Well, it’s a nice fantasy.
Latverian Diplomat says
So, how long before someone finds Harvey Milk stamped envelopes in the AFA’s trash, proving that they don’t return such mail to sender.
I imagine an organization that exists primarily to turn checks into hate speech NEVER fails to open an envelope on the off chance some deluded person’s life savings are inside.
They’re not going postal; they’re milking it for all it’s worth.
(See? not all the puns were taken!)
[to the tune of the Union song]
Ask for… the Harvey Milk stamp
When you are sending some phys-i-cal mail…
Thank you, maddog1129 🙂
No, but Dan Savage had the same idea.
One of the commenters suggested sending them a dollar, writing “Donation enclosed” on the envelope.
The next one amended that from a dollar to glitter.
Francisco Bacopa says
There was a Barbara Jordan “forever” stamp in 2011. I have a sheet of them. While she was never much of a gay rights activist and was never open about her relationships until her disability forced her to withdraw from the national scene and teach one class a semester at Texas Southern University in the 80’s, we all knew what was up.
Send the Jordan stamps if you have them.
They plan to refuse to accept mail with the stamps? That’s great news for anyone planning a small claims court or other case against them. Attach Milk stamps and win the case by default:

Harvey Milk Stamped “Out” Forever !
The Obama Cabal is behind universal GAYety with a “forever” postage stamp issued by the US Pederastal Service which idolizes Harvey Milk, a Jewish pederast “attracted to boys aged 15-19,” according to WikiAnswers! (Also see Wikipedia.)
Global gaydom was even predicted by Jesus (see “days of Lot” in Luke 17 and compare with Genesis 19).
And the Hebrew prophet Zechariah (14th chapter) says that during the same end-time gay “days” ALL nations will come against Israel and fulfill the “days of Noah” at the same time (see Luke 17 again) – a short time of anti-Jewish genocide found in Zechariah 13:8 when two-thirds of all Jews will die.
In other words, when “gay days” have become universal, all hell will break loose!
The same “days” will cause worldwide human government to collapse in just a few short years! For the first time ever there won’t be enough time for anyone to attend college, have a family, enjoy retirement, etc. It will also be the last time anyone like ObabaBlackSheep will be able to keep pulling the wool over our eyes!
One final thought. The more we see gays “coming out,” the sooner Jesus will be “coming down”!
For more, Google or Yahoo “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up,” “Jesus Never Mentioned Homosexuality. When gays have birthdays…,” “FOR GAYS ONLY: Jesus Predicted…,” “USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans!” and “The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up.”
(PS: HOMOgenized Milk has been honored by Gov. Schwarzenaggravator as well as ObabaBlackSheep.)
