GOP Pundits and GOProud Go Insane Over Dan Savage’s Tweet Slamming GOProuds Endorsement Of Romney

Yesterday after GOProud also known as GOFuckYourself GOProud endorsed Mitt Romney for  president Dan Savage was just a bit peeved and took to Twitter and posted :  “The GOP’s house faggots grab their ankles, right on cue … Pathetic.”

Well GOProud and Right Wing nut pundits are aghast.  Agahst I tell you that Dan who’s known for his, excuse the saying “straight talk” could ever be so intolerant and say such a thing about GOProud.

At Breitbart.com Ben Shapiro was outraged:

Two gay slurs in one Tweet. The gay left must be proud of their  self-appointed spokesman. So must the Obama Administration, which has labeled  this massive bully a hero of the anti-bullying movement, invited him to the  White House, and cut videos on behalf of his It Gets Better Project.

And of course one of the Queens of GOP Propaganda Michele Malkin has to chime in on Twitchy

File under: Unexpectedly! Self-proclaimed gay rights advocate and  anti-bullying crusader Dan Savage laid bare his intolerance once  again, this time hurling the f*ggot-bomb at gay conservative  organization GOProud. GOProud, you see, had the gall to stray from the Gay  Left’s plantation and announce its support for Mitt Romney

Actually we should file this backlash on Savage as “expected”.  As expected as Malkin using the “plantaion” remark.  Which has been used long before Dan made his comment.

Now I must have been absent the day that Dan Savage was appointed (self or otherwise) anything in the gay community.  He speaks bluntly and we all know that. And most people  either love him or hate him for that reason.

But lets be real.  On this point he’s not off the mark.  We all think it.  But Dan’s the only one brave enough to say it.

But the best remark comes from GOProud co-founder Christopher Barron who responded on his site :

“Apparently, faggot is an entirely appropriate slur as long as Dan Savage is  slinging it and gay people who you don’t agree with are on the receiving end. It  gets better my ass.”

Now this really takes some balls from a man who repeatedly calls progressive writers and bloggers “The American Taliban” and the “Gay Gestapo”

While Dan’s language is one 100% politically correct (and not everthing has to be), the frustration and anger in his message totally is.

What kind of people make up a  group that endorses a candidate and a party that pretty much wants you dead because you want acceptance on any level and to justify your personal greed?  (And believe me I am sure that Jimmy LaSalvia is using this to raise every penny that he can right now.)

GOProuds’s “house faggots”, “Koch suckers”, “Auntie Toms”, and “traitors”.  That’s who.
