Eric Cantor Booed at University of Michigan – Ann Arbor for Supporting Gay Marriage Ban aka DOMA

The Rethuglicans are finally starting to get blowback for the years of bigoted social warfare. On Top Mag has the story:

During the question-and-answer period that followed Cantor’s 30-minute speech, the Republican was asked: “How do you reconcile your position with states rights and the Constitution and with your support of the Defense of Marriage Act.”

“I’ve always been very straightforward about this. I just believe in traditional marriage between a man and woman,” Cantor said as boos are heard from members of the audience.

One student is heard saying, “I’m gay and you’re not for my family.”

“Well, I would again say that we all no matter what we are, who we are, what the background of his country should allow for equal opportunity to earn the success we’re after.”

“Answer the question,” a student says before Cantor moves on.



Originally from Denver, now living in the Low Countries of Europe. Spent four years in the Navy, got out when I realized I was a big ole flaming mo. Lived in NYC for almost a decade until meeting my husband, who because of the f'ed up immigration laws, can't stay in the US. I'm obsessed with politics and LGBT activism. I cannot stand or abide ANY form of religious stupidity or bigotry....oh, or republicans.
