Pissing off the angry gay left is so easy and fun. I honestly never get tired of it.
It is good to know that Barron’s GOProud has lined up so many GOP votes on Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell and other LGBT issues that he has the idle time to needle the left.
The pathetic toadies at GOProud had this to say about Willow Palin using the word ‘faggot’ in a series of loutish FaceBook messages:
“Willow Palin is a 16 year old girl who, like all 16 year olds is going to make mistakes and say things she shouldn’t have. This, however, has nothing to do with Willow Palin or the substance of what she said on Facebook. The ‘slur’ used here is one you could hear on the streets of West Hollywood or Chelsea every day of the week. Apparently, it’s only a ‘homophobic slur’ when it comes from the daughter of a conservative female leader. Make no mistake; this is all about destroying Sarah Palin by any means necessary.
“The angry misogynistic left and their accomplices in the main stream media have been unable to take down Governor Palin – no matter how hard they have tried. Unable to take her down directly they now have decided to try to hurt her by attacking the most important thing in her life – her family. “Any person, gay or straight, who participates in this cheap political smear should be ashamed of themselves”
What GOProud is doing is called “projection”. The simple fact is that they are the ones defending the Palin family based on partisanship. The idea is that if you suck up to your enemies, they will admire you and decide you are worthy of support. Unfortunately, this strategy has been a dismal failure. Gay Republicans have been kissing ass on bended knee as long as I have been in the movement and the party has veered further right. Indeed WAY FAR RIGHT.
GOProud is correct to point out that Willow is only 16 and can make mistakes. But apologists like Tammy Bruce are delusional when they say that Willow’s comments are irrelevant. Sarah Palin is only where she is by proclaiming herself an evangelical protector and promoter of family values. Given this fact, it is fair to see what kind of family she has raised. Even more so because she has degraded and marginalized same-sex families who have clearly raised children with more class.
The sad truth is that GOProud could give a damn about LGBT Equality. They are simply a bunch of self-involved Uncle Mary’s who would sell this movement down the river for a tax cut on a pack of bubble gum. That they are trying to get in the good graces of Sarah Palin — who has nothing good in store for LGBT people — shows how out of touch they truly are.
I’d love to hear from the folks at GOProud and have them explain how elevating Sarah Palin is good for the LGBT movement and for America? Name ONE thing beneficial that she brings to the table.
Oh, yeah, I forgot, she can see Russia from her igloo.
