I’m pretty sure this is in response to White House adviser Valerie Jarrett’s speech at the ironically-named HRC “No Excuses” dinner. You’ll recall that during that speech Jarrett plagiarized Dan’s “it gets better” campaign name, and didn’t even bother telling people that the phrase came from an anti-bullying campaign, let alone that Dan created it. In essence, she chose words over deeds. She could have helped the cause of bullying immensely by actually talking about Dan’s campaign, rather than simply plagiarizing its name, but instead she went for the sound bite over substance. That’s the unfortunate metaphor for so much in this administration.
