It's about freakin' time!

/there was a West Wing episode about this

He must suffer from some massive learning disability.

My fellow Republicans,
last night I kissed a man named Terry.
Greg, you were on break at the time.
And I learned something...
We're wrong about gays.
I was wrong...
and I taught my boy wrong.
It turns out that being gay is not a choice.
It's true. Believe me, I tried, and it didn't work.
The Log Cabin delegates trying to get in tonight didn't choose to be gay,
but they did choose to be Republicans.
Even though, as Republicans, we used bashing them
as the backbone of our last presidential election,
they're still sticking with us.
By God, these people love America as much as they love brunch.
You know what else is a choice?
Being a Democrat.
Democrats weren't born Democrats.
They chose to be Democrats.
I'm not telling you to stop hating.
I just want you to hate where hate deserves.
Hating gays is hate we could be using on the Democrats.
We shouldn't discriminate against gays.
We should get more of them to be Republicans.
They're supporting the economy by buying high-end appliances and teacup poodles.
Do you want manufacturers of super-tight T-shirts to go out of business?

"No!"

Would you forsake Socrates, Plato and Grandpa Walton?

"No!"

There's room for everyone.
We all belong in the GOP.
So come on, David Geffen,
get on board Nathan Lane,
come on, Johnny Depp...
Really? You would have thought with the tiny glasses.
So come on, L.A. Sparks,
come on half the population of Palm Springs.
Oh, who are we kidding, come on all of Palm Springs.
Come on, Anne Heche, you confused son of a biatch.
Come under the big tent.
The Grand Ol' Party just got grander.
In the words of the Founding Father of the Republican party,
Abraham Lincoln,
"A house divided against itself cannot stand."
And that house, my friends,
will be resurfaced with an aged-lime wash
and flipped for a profit!

LaSalvia said that the GOP is going to have to "hit bottom" to break its addiction to bigotry and anti-LGBT hate.

"That's the question," he said, "whether they're going to go the way of the Dixiecrats, whether they're going to hold on to their bigotry to the bitter end. And I think they might."

Ouch...that one's gotta sting!

Since the modern Southern GOP are just Dixiecrats I'd say they are doing all right for themselves.

/to the detriment of everyone else.

there are some Republicans who are actual small-government, pragmatic Republicans (like Huntsman) but there are fewer and fewer of them as they get booted from the party (also like Huntsman)

You might have had an excuse as a gay person in the GOP twenty years ago, when a Democratic president was signing DOMA into law and there wasn't a whole lot of practical differentiation between the parties on this issue.

That time, of course, is long past. I sincerely hope that this moron's years of providing cover for hateful assholes has bought him a lifetime of being shunned by his friends and peers.

The question is: can they make a tidy profit before getting out?

Being gay is not a choice and should not be discriminated against.

Being republican is and should be.

In what world did he imagine that the base ever consider him anything other than a disgusting sodomite? The southern strategy started before I was born and I am positive it has never been neutral, let alone positive, since then.

"I liken what I did in leaving the party this week," he said, "to tough love parenting. You try to help your drug-addicted child to the point where you just have to put your foot down and cut them off because they've got to hit bottom before they're going to realize."

They, uh, don't give a shiat, dude....

Imagine my shock when I clicked this link and didn't see a picture of Lindsey Graham festooning the top of the article.
 
2014-01-15 02:31:22 PM
Wait a sec. I'm getting the feeling from the article that the GOP does NOT tolerate gays.

If only we had a party that was socially liberal, but center-right on just about everything else that he could join...

My first thought as well.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around gay, african american, latin american and/or female republicans in the first place. I seriously don't get how these people even exist.
 
2014-01-15 02:34:36 PM
The GOP is never going to give up on barring same-sex couples from marrying until they get thumped in an election as badly as Goldwater got thumped in 1964.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: If only we had a party that was socially liberal, but center-right on just about everything else that he could join...


his options are so limited, the party was practically shoved down his throat.
 
2014-01-15 02:36:24 PM
Jeez, Republicans, it's never a problem unless it affects you personally?

Positive points for the eventual wake-up, though.

This is like the woman who has been in an abusive marriage for years and never left because she thought she could make him change, finally waking up in the hospital after her weekly beating and realizing that he will never change.

Lorelle: Gay & black Republicans = Jews for Hitler.


I know a gay, black who is in a long term interracial relationship but who is a Republican because of the Benjamins*, and for no other reason. Sad really.


* By Benjamins I mean 100 (hundred) dollar bills, not some closeted Republican named Benjamin who gives freebies in the washroom.
 
2014-01-15 02:39:25 PM
I think the Republican Party as we know it is on its way to imploding.

Sadly, this comment is applicable to two of the five most recent threads in the Politics tab.
 
2014-01-15 02:41:03 PM
So this guy finally decided that money isn't worth being hated?

Because that's all I can figure out gay republicans are in it for: tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation.

Today's Republican party cares nothing about getting money to any group outside the top 1% of the top 1%, so ... the guy you know is an idiot.
 
2014-01-15 02:42:34 PM
I can't understand how any gay person, or female, or non-white male, or any person with at least average human compassion can vote for ANY republican.

Honest question, and I'll admit freely that sometimes I'm not at the top of the class when it comes to politics....but how does being a republican allow your friend more money?
