The GAP will be renting out their “retail view room” on May 24 at Gap headquarters on Folsom Street in San Francisco so a fundraiser can be held for the “ blue eyed anti-gay GOP fascist” and potential Mitt Romney running mate Paul Ryan. (Who’ll you probably be able to find later that evening at Blow Buddies)
Prosperity Action PAC, Ryan’s little Right Wing Welfare Piggy Bank, is hosting the event states that Gap Inc. is just renting out the room and isn’t involved in sponsoring the event. “Not at all, no. I mean, we’re paying for the space like anyone else,” said Kristin Hueter, who is organizing the fundraiser.
The GAP is “just renting the space and not sponsoring the event”?
Pure and utter bullshit .
By taking the PAC’s money, GAP is consenting to the event and the content contained therein. If GAP really wanted to remain impartial it would have told Congressman Ryan to keep walking. Also the Fischers, the family that owns the company family that owns the GAP is a major player in Republican politics. They don’t just rent out the headquarters showroom to anyone, and I am willing to bet they will be attending or at the very least personally donating.
And Paul Ryan’s voting record?
Voted YES on Constitutionally defining marriage as one-man-one-woman. (Jul 2006)
Voted YES on making the PATRIOT Act permanent. (Dec 2005)
Voted YES on Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage. (Sep 2004)
Voted YES on banning gay adoptions in DC. (Jul 1999)
Rated 13% by the ACLU, indicating an anti-civil rights voting record. (Dec 2002)
Rated 0% by the HRC, indicating an anti-gay-rights stance. (Dec 2006)
Rated 36% by NAACP, indicating a mixed record on affirmative-action. (Dec 2006)
But then again what can you expect from The GAP? This is a company that has no qualms about exploiting third world labor to get rich and exploit export processing zones only then to mark up their product 500% from what it actually costs them to make.
The GAP doesn’t have any morals to begin with.
And from now on, they’ll have none of my hard earned gay dollars either.
