Marco Rubio bigot

Marco Rubio hates to be called bigot and denies that he is one.  But if anyone ever needed any concrete proof to prove that he is today is the day he provided.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) threatened that he will rescind his support for the Senate Gang of Eight immigration bill he co-authored if it contains a provision allowing gay undocumented immigrants to claim foreign same-sex partners as family. Once again trying to use the GOP strong-arm tactic of threatening to kill the dream of immigration to hundreds of thousands people because of his his and the GOP’s hate of the LGBT community.

“If this bill has something in it that gives gay couples immigration rights and so forth, it kills the bill. I’m done,” Rubio said Thursday

And if that’s not enough proof of what a hateful bigot Rubio is, on the same day ThinkProgress spoke with the Florida Senator at the annual Faith and Freedom Forum on Thursday and asked him about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), a bill to make discrimination against LGBT individuals illegal across the country and showed no willingness to help protect LGBT workers from discrimination. “I’m not for any “special protections” based on orientation,” Rubio said

KEYES: The Senate this summer is going to be taking up the Employment Non-Discrimination Act which makes it illegal to fire someone for being gay. Do you know if you’ll be supporting that?

RUBIO: I haven’t read the legislation. By and large I think all Americans should be protected but I’m not for any special protections based on orientation.

KEYES: What about on race or gender?

RUBIO: Well that’s established law.

KEYES: But not for sexual orientation?

29 states now have no laws protecting gay and lesbian workers from discrimination in the workplace, and an additional five states don’t protect workers based on gender identity.

The fact that he would walk away from his own immigration bill, his own people if it included protection for gay bi-national couples should tell not only Hispanic voters and the world what a cretinous  bigot  Marco Rubio actually is.
