Morons, morons everywhere……
AFA hatemonger and moron Bryan J Fischer, is demanding that GOP Presidential Mormon moron Mitt Romney explain why the HomoCON morons, The Log Cabin Republicans endorsed him and is hoping that it has nothing to do with LGBT equality in any way shape or form.
Ben Adler of the Nation called me at quitting time today. Said he had been given assurances by Log Cabin Republicans that Romney’s camp has privately promised them he will support ENDA after he’s elected. ENDA will be the official end of religious liberty in America. Will trample on the 1st Amendment rights of every Christian businessmen in the country. No freedom of religion, conscience or association. Will do to every Christian business what ObamaCare has done to Catholic hospitals. Would be wrong and politically disastrous for Romney to support. What we need is a flat emphatic, unambiguous denial from Romney himself. Please clarify for us all, Governor. Bottom line: we need a clear, unambiguous, no loophole denial from Gov. Romney that he will support ENDA as president.”
Well of course Fischer has no need to worry Buzzfeed spoke to Log Cabin head HomoCON douchebag R. Clarke Cooper, who is denied all claims that his group agreed to endorse Mitt Romney in return for a promise to support the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) (SPOILER: They did it because they are bootlicking, asskissing, greedy Auntie Tom Kapo bastard who don’t give a shit about the gay community and equality and wanted to curry favor from the GOP party which hates them.)
Cooper acknowledged that he “discussed legislative vehicles and executive actions with Romney regarding workplace non-discrimination, including ENDA.” But he insisted the endorsement did not come in response to a Romney campaign pledge to sign ENDA — noting, “I did not say Romney would sign the current form of ENDA.” He added that Log Cabin is “confident we could work with a President Romney and his administration to achieve desirable tangible outcomes on workplace nondiscrimination.” ENDA is legislation that has been introduced in this and several recent sessions of Congress aimed at specifically outlawing workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
So essentially what Cooper is saying is that they endorsed Romney, a candidate who doesn’t support gay rights in any way, shape or form, because of other factors not associated with gay rights. And they were begging for crumbs to justify the endorsement and came back empty-handed and endorsed him anyway.
In a nutshell Cooper and the LCR could have withheld the endorsement for Romney like they previously did Bush. They weighed their options and made a calculated decision n to curry favor from the GOP knowing full well that they would not suffer any ramifications from the LGBT Washington Insiders and Organizations other than some bitchy blog posts. (Thats me!)
Considering that Romney and Ryan have kowtowed to the extreme religious right in this election more than Bush ever did, what LCR did yesterday with their endorsement of Romney while not wholly unexpected should be viewed as a slap in the face to the LGBT community and our fight for equality as a whole. And if nothing else LGBT organizations should turn their backs on them and treat them the same as GOProud.
