Newt Gingrich Bluntly Tells Gay Americans: “Don’t Vote For Me”

Associate professor of writing at William Penn University openly gay Scott Arnold approached Newt Gingrich at an event in Oskaloosa, Iowa, where he asked Gingrich whether he thought that he has earned the support of gay Americans.

The Des Moines Register reports what happened next:

I asked him if he’s elected, how does he plan to engage gay Americans. How are we to support him? And he told me to support Obama,” said Arnold. […]

“When you ask somebody a question and you expect them to support all Americans and have everyone’s general interest,” Arnold said. “It’s a little bit frustrating and disheartening when you’re told to support the other side. That he doesn’t need your support.”

Whats probably the saddest thing about this is that the Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud will still probably vote for him if by some some strange reason Gingrich grabs the GOP nomination.

Any gay man or women who votes Republican is like a jewish person voting for Hitler.

  1. So, following the line of logic, everyone gay/lesbian living in Texas are little Nazis. They are living in a Republican state and thereby supporting the Repulican party. Got it.

  2. “Any gay man or women who votes Republican is like a jewish person voting for Hitler.” Yeah–absolutely correct.

    I don’t understand how anyone can support a political party that has so tirelessly worked to curtail personal freedom and equality–and all for votes, sacrificing principle to keep a job. Few of these people actually believe their own rhetoric, they are merely pandering to the fears of the ignorant. For an LGBTQ person to do it? Simply unconscionable, it absolutely defies reason.

What do you think?
