For the life of me I can’t understand Log Cabin Republicans. “Women for the Return of Corsets” or “Vegetarians for More Slaughterhouses” or “Buddhists for Scientology for Jesus” would be no more improbable or oxymoronical category.
I remember in 2000 when a former friend of mine from high school, then the VP of the LCR in NYC, said (direct quote) “George Bush doesn’t give a hoot about people’s private lives” when asked point blank about concerns that Bush would promote anti-gay legislation. Well the friend remained with the LCR (according to their directory), even being one of the ones who endorsed Bush again (the LCR itself did not) after he tried to enact the Constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage.
Now they’re endorsing McCain:
To quote Patrick Stewart’s flamingly gay choreographer character in JEFFREY,
Bitch, have you even listened to McCain talk about gay issues? He’s pro Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, his running mate belongs to a church that believes you can pray the gay away, and he doesn’t even mention LGBT issues on his web site (last year he didn’t even have a clue what LGBT meantwhen asked about them). The only mention of gays on his official web site is under
Homepage>>>Issues>>>Human Dignity and the Sanctity of Life>>>Protecting Marriage (which some would think is already not an auspicious sign).
There’s more but you get the point: he thinks that you (Log Cabin Republicans [or if you prefer, Elephag and Tuskdyke Americans]) are something the rest of the country needs protecting from.
Now perform the following google search:
Omitting people named Gay, the main hits are reprinted articles from newspapers that slam Obama for his support of gays. Example:
The SCotUS has ruled that marriage is a civil right for incarcerated mass murderers, so much the state must even float a part of the bill in allowing the wedding, but… at least Susan Atkins and Tex Watson aren’t fags.
Clear enough? Oh, and for the military---- no pooftahs! (Take one look at Sarah Palin’s hair and you’ll see his campaign doesn’t even use gay stylists!)
You fucking flaming faggots would carry the flaming faggots for your own burning.
McCain doesn’t want you.
He will accept your checks as individuals, but he will never appear at a LCR event or fundraiser.
How much coverage did you get when you announced your support of him at the Big Tent Event of the RNC?
You don’t exist! You are the mulatto bastards at the Republican Faulknerian Family Reunion! Why do you praise him? Why do you support him?
I have no delusions that an Obama administration would make Gay Day a national holiday, but at least he has a LGBT section on his site. He doesn’t support marriage (a political expediency I’ve no doubt) but at least he doesn’t feel he needs to protect the rest of America from Will & Grace. At very least he’d probably speak to you.
For high earnin’ fags with incomes in the high six figures or above, I can understand it: your money means more to you than your visibility and self-respect. For the rest of you… I can only assume you’re 22 year old twinks living in the guest room of the Central Park view apartment of a much older Log Fence Faggot Roy Cohn wannabe. Perhaps it’ll turn out he works for Lehman Brothers and you’ll be free at last to vote Democrat.
Don’t understand these folks, not tat all. I’d say it takes all kinds to make a world, but I see no evidence of that.
