Republicans hate the gays

“Republicans Literally Cannot Stand To Be In The Same Room As You”

Republicans hate the gays
“I’m rubber and you’re glue!”

MSNBC’s Cenk Uygur and GOProud’s Christopher Barron are at it again. You may remember Barron from his last time on the tele. He’s the conservative leader of the paradoxical gay, republican organization that has GOP leaders and organizations backing out left and right from the upcoming CPAC convention.

Uygur’s (and the rest of the gay community’s) position continues to be – Why the hell are you a Republican? They HATE you. And then Barron is all, “Nuh-uh! Neener neener neener!” Oy.

Barron continues to befuddle. He even goes so far as to inadvertently make Uygur’s point for him without realizing it. “It speaks volumes about how little power their message actually has if they are afraid to be in the same room as us…So for the folks who are pulling out about this, it’s for one reason only. It’s because we happen to be gay. That’s it. No policy differences really here.” Yes, we know. That’s what we just said. Is your earpiece not on? This is hardly a debate here.

And on policy – Oh really! No policy differences here? None at all? Not DADT Repeal? Not enactment of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act? Or the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act? Not marriage equality? Not half price drinks during the State of the Union address? No policy differences at all, eh? The Republican Party and America’s gays are in complete and total synchronistic agreement on those issues, are they? I see.

Neither Uygur or myself can understand what the heck Barron is smoking. Uygur sums it all up with, “Why be in a group of people where a very large group of them says ‘I cant stand you based on who you are’?”

Exactly.

Any gay Republicans in our herd? Tell me Why-ee.

    Well, as a Democrat, I can understand why some Gay people are and should be Republicans.

    Understand that each political party, especially as we only have 2, contains great diversity. And also understand that the political parties are largely oriented around class.

    So if you are a Gay man and make in excess of 250k a year, the Republican party backs your economic interests at the expense of the lazy socialist scum that refuses to work hard and therefore makes less than 30k.

    And the Republican party is the party of family values. It is truly hypocritical of Republicans to be against any form of marriage, even gay marriage. A more consistent Republican message would be to demand no gay man has gay sex BEFORE gay marriage.

    And yes, the Republican party is not a party that supports Gay rights, regardless of the hypocrisy. BUT, America is a democracy, and only by working within a political party can it be changed.

    If I have hope that working inside the Democratic party I can effect change by helping pro gay, pro single payer healthcare, and anti-war Democratic candidates win nominations, then Gay Republicans have as much hope that they can work to help Libertarians that want to shrink government, legalize pot, prostitution and gay marriage – to win nominations in the Republican party.
