Oregon State Bar rejects Guard ads due to military bias
The Oregon State Bar board has voted to ban the Oregon National Guard from advertising in the bar magazine because of the military's controversial policy on homosexuals.
Notice the word "controversial" thrown in there.
"I don't believe the board was willing to basically gut its diversity policy to make an exception for the military," said bar president Nena Cook, a Portland attorney. The bar, which licenses and regulates Oregon lawyers, "needs to stand by its principles of fairness and justice for all," Cook said.
So who does advertise in the Oregon State Bar Bulletin? Well, this google search reveals several pages where a "directory of advertisers" link was at one time. Funny thing is, the links are no longer there. I have a nagging suspicion that ads from (controversial) groups such as NARAL have been in the Bar Bulletin. (just my suspicion)
As for the discrimination, the bar exalts RomÃ¡n HernÃ¡ndez for being elected to the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber, the Portland chapter of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber. (think that they will accept a black lawyer?)
Merle Weiner, whose last name is very appropriate, wrote this disgusting piece (could be called "controversial" if I owned a fishwrapper) for the bulletin and is an associate professor of law at the University of Oregon School of Law, an organization that discriminates.
My point is that the Oregon Bar is simply a left-leaning group that hates the military and loves homosexuals.
