Michelangelo Signorile reports at Huffington Post:
Log Cabin Republicans leader Gregory T. Angelo told me last year at the Conservative Political Action Conference that President Donald Trump was “the most pro-LGBT Republican president in history.”
In an interview with me on SiriusXM Progress at CPAC last weekend, Angelo implied that Trump is even better for the LGBTQ community than former President Barack Obama, at least in one way.
“This president is the first president to enter the White House who believes that marriage equality is settled law of the land,” Angelo said, referring to a “60 Minutes” interview from over a year ago in which Trump was asked about his views on same-sex marriage. He didn’t actually state his own position on the matter, but said that the issue was “settled law.”
Gregory T Angelo is as much a Kapo as any prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp who was assigned by the SS guards to supervise forced labor or carry out administrative tasks for a few crumbs or in Angelo’s case a few dollars. He’s a quisling, who cares only about money & position. He loses his income the moment he declares his org is opposing the GOP. His job is to keep the gay Republican lemmings in-line, despite what horrors they, themselves, may see this regime doing to them.
The man for lack of a better word. is pure quisling scum.
The board of the nation’s largest group of LGBT Republicans has voted to not endorse Donald Trump, in a contentious decision that did not reflect the preference of many of its chapters. While the Log Cabin Republicans are united against Hillary Clinton, the group’s 14-member national board narrowly voted on Tuesday to “withhold” an endorsement of the Republican nominee, according to Gregory T. Angelo, the organization’s president.
It’s the second time the official national group has chosen not to back the GOP nominee — the prior time was 2004 for George W. Bush. The move reflects struggles throughout the Republican coalition, though for LGBT conservatives it’s been particularly wrenching. Trump’s rhetoric, they say, has been more pro-gay than any presidential nominee in history.
“Withholding an endorsement is not the same thing as opposing someone’s nomination,” Angelo said in an interview. “There were members of our national board of directors who had very passionate feelings in favor of both.” Angelo — who is not a voting member of the board — said that state Log Cabin chapters were surveyed as part of the endorsement process for recommendations, and a majority supported endorsing Trump.
“Could Donald Trump be the most pro-LGBT president that this country has ever had? He might well be,” Angelo said. But the nominee’s inconsistencies “presented enough reservations such that the board did not feel comfortable putting the full face of our 40-year-old brand behind the Republican Party’s nominee for president.”
Are there really more than 14 Log Cabin Republicans? Seriously?
Now I understand that the talent pool is severely limited when it comes to HomoCON’s, but just when you think that the Log Cabin Republicans can’t get any worse after their endorsement of Mitt Romney for President now that the LCR executive director R. Clarke Cooper will be stepping down they will be replacing him with Gregory T. Angelo, who announced his support for Newt Gingrich’s presidential bid just weeks after Gingrich signed the National Organization for Marriages ‘s hate pledge to destroy LGBT rights on the federal level.
According to Joe Jervis over at the award winning newblog Joe My God who references this 2011 interview “Angelo appears to be the typical homocon who proclaims his Christianity and denounces gay pride parades. Because, you know, he’s butch. Or something.”
Most of the other gay Republicans Greg knows, he says, are not fans of the pride parade. They’re not wearing their sexuality on their sleeve, he says. Many are partnered. A lot are business owners. “The bottom line is many just want to live their lives in quiet dignity. Their rights are important to them and achieving equal rights is important to them but the way to do it isn’t really to go out and bang a drum and make a lot of noise. It’s more so to make a difference within the party and to sit down with fellow Republicans and sit down with their partners, sit down with the foster children they’re taking care of, sit down and explain that they’re a business owner who is also not happy with the MTA payroll tax in New York and make the case that we are normal,” he says. Greg has met with people who think all gay men are hairdressers or fashion designers.
“Business owner” of course is a Republican code word for “anarcho-capitalistic, exploiting, dumb fuck who thinks his employees are slaves”
LCR-ers and GOProud-ers have: no shame, no self-esteem, no decency, no sense of irony, but
have all the self-loathing hate that money can buy!!!
Any self-respecting LGBT individual or LGBT organization wouldn’t be caught within 10 feet of them.
FLASHBACK – Human Rights Campaign head Chad Griffin – Sept 7, 2012
” The Log Cabin Republicans are good people doing good work. We need all fair-minded Americans to rally to the side of equality, and that most definitely includes Republicans. They provide a voice within the Republican Party that’s important.”
I rest my case.
