Ken Mehlman’s Anti-Gay Past – A Partial History

2004 Mehlman Mailer



In 2004 then RNC President Ken Mehlman directly told Ohio’s anti-gay bigoted Republicans and Ohio’s anti-gay hate group the Citizens for Community Values (Which is the Midwest affiliate group of both Focus on the Family and The Family Research Council) to get a marriage ban on the ballot.

Mehlman was interviewed after he spoke to the Summit County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Day dinner March 19 at Quaker Station. “I’m here to say thank you,” Mehlman told the gathering, “because Summit County increased its votes for George W. Bush from 2000 to 2004 more than any other county.” Mehlman managed the Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign and, according to the campaign’s Ohio co-chair, Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, directed Ohio anti-gay activists to mount the campaign to put the Issue 1 marriage ban amendment on the ballot. Internet bloggers have pointed out that if Mehlman, 38, unmarried and never with female companionship, is gay, he is a hypocrite


2005 – Ken Mehlman Fully Supports The Marriage Protection Amendment

GOP Sen. Wayne Allard (CO) introduced the Marriage Protection Amendment (a verbatim restating of the earlier failed Federal Management Amendment) with 21 Senate GOP co-sponsors. Later that year the bill was approved for review by the full Senate Judiciary Committee. Newly appointed RNC chair Ken Mehlman gave the bill his full support to reporters at an Ohio GOP fundraiser that March.

During his Akron remarks, Mehlman put forth political and policy statements often viewed as anti-gay. “Republicans are for government that stands on the side of marriage,” he said, “and on the side of strong families.” After the dinner, he was asked by a reporter about the GOP’s support for the so-called Marriage Protection Amendment, introduced in the House last week by Rep. Dan Lundgren of California. Mehlman made it clear that he supports the amendment. “I don’t think it’s anti-gay,” said Mehlman. “I don’t think the intent is to be anti-anything.”

2006 – Mehlman Campaigns for Mehlman Campaigns For Anti-Gay 2006 GOP Rep. Mark Kennedy (Introduced by CRAZY BITCH Michelle Bachman no less)
2006 – Bill Maher OUTS Ken Mehlmn on CNN’s Larry King Live – CNN edits the tape before it’s West Coast viewing and Mehlman resigns the next day saying that his resignation was planned for months.
During the time Ken Mehlman was George W Bush’s campaign manager and afterwards during his time as chairman of the Republican National Committee, 21 states passed laws that banned same-sex marriage. Some of these laws made same-sex marriage unconstitutional, some made both civil unions and same-sex marriages unconstitutional. All of these anti-gay referendum took place from 2004-2006 and all of them were pushed by the GOP under Ken Mehlman

There can never be any total penance for Mehlman after what has done and in my opinion he deserves NOTHING from our community but rancor and contempt. Mehlman pushed through his policies helped make LGBT people second class citizens in over 21 states and then pushed for a federal amendment as well.
There is nothing that Ken Mehlman can ever say or  do or say that will totally reverse his actions and change the immeasurable harm he has done to millions of gay and lesbians lives.
And we need to remember what he has done to us. And it needs to be duly noted in history.

Homo Say What? – Ken Mehlman Ex-Republican National Commmitte Chairman and Geroge Bush’s 2004 Campaign Manager" "I’M GAY!"

Ken Mehlman, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee and was the 2004 campaign manager for President George W. Bush  who helped spearhead the Republicans’ and helped lead the assault on LGBT Americans has come top a “realization”  HE’S GAY!

It’s taken me 43 years to get comfortable with this part of my life. Everybody has their own path to travel, their own journey, and for me, over the past few months, I’ve told my family, friends, former colleagues, and current colleagues, and they’ve been wonderful and supportive. The process has been something that’s made me a happier and better person. It’s something I wish I had done years ago.”

Thats pretty fucking funny Secretariat, because many people for years have known that this self laothing queen was gay, and he was asked and denied it many times.

Melman is without a doubt America’s most heinous homosexual, actively participating in and driving the demonetization of his own community in exchange for political applause and cold hard cash

Mike Rogers, blogger and gay rights activist in the Washington, D.C.-area best known for his activity in outing closeted gay politicians who actively oppose gay rights who had tried to out Mehlman earlier put it this way.

Can Ken Mehlman redeem himself? I want to hear from Ken that he is sorry for being the architect of the 2004 Bush reelection campaign. I want to hear from Ken that he is sorry for his role in developing strategy that resulted in George W. Bush threatening to veto ENDA or any bill containing hate crimes laws. I want to hear from Ken that he is sorry for the pressing of two Federal Marriage Amendments as political tools. I want to hear from Ken that he is sorry for developing the 72-hour strategy, using homophobic churches to become political arms of the GOP before Election Day.

And those state marriage amendments. I want to hear him apologize for every one of those, too.

And then there is one other little thing. You see, while you and I had the horrible feelings of being treated so poorly by our President, while teens were receiving the messaging ‘gay is bad’ giving them ‘permission’ to gay bash, while our rights were being stripped state by state, Ken was out there laughing all the way to the bank. So, if Ken is really sorry, and he very well may be, then all he needs to do is sell his condo and donate the funds to the causes he worked against so hard for all those years. He’s done a lot of damage to a lot of organizations, while making a lot of moeny. A LOT of money. It’s time to put his money where his mouth is. Ken Mehlman is sitting in a $3,770,000.00 (that’s $3.77 million) condo in Chelsea while we have lost our right to marry in almost 40 states.

THEN, and only then, should Mehlman be welcomed into our community

FUCK YOU Ken Mehlman.  I hope every queen in Chelsea grabs laighted torches and circles your 3.7 Million dollar condo,

Tar and feathering is too good for the likes of you. You horsefaced ugly motherfucker.

I hope someone punches you right in the vagina.
