HomoCON Fred Karger: The Gay Community Should Boycott AMWAY! (Shut Up Fred.)

Falied honocon Republican presidential candidate Fred Karger, who happily worked for Ronald Reagan during the AIDS epidemic of the 1980’s announced  a global boycott of Amway  yesterday at the Unity 2012 convention in Las Vegas because the company’s president Doug DeVos, donated $500,000  to the National  Organization for Marriage

From Queerty:

“I imagine NOM leaders Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown thought that no one would  uncover the huge Amway contribution which appears to be the largest family  donation to NOM in its history,” said Karger  who’s now heading up the  group Rights Equal Rights. “Only the Catholic Church’s political arm, the  Knights of Columbus, has given more to the hate group NOM.”

Okay Fred let’s get something straight in your bid for media whoredom attention here.

The news is Amways support of ultra conservative politicians and anti-gay causes is decades old and any modestly informed homosexual should already know that.  Besides who in their right mind buys anything from Amway anyway?  Amway is just a right-wing pyramid scheme that sells mediocre products at high prices.

Yes, it should be well publicized that Amway has donated a half a million dollars to the National Organization for Marriage but calling for a boycott of a corporation that no one in our community buys from while we are in the middle of this Chick-fil-A mess is irresponsible and just plain stupid.

But then again you are a gay republican, there is nothing more irresponsible and stupid as that.
