This should have been the first clue that Democrats were more-than-willing to use homosexuality as the "wedge issue" Republicans are always accused of employing. If a Presidential candidate is will to out a VP's daughter on national television, what else would they stoop to? Make no mistake, this was done to alert any red-staters in "fly over country" that may not have known about Mary Cheney's sexual preference...that they had "a gay" in their midst.
Now it's even worse... Now there's "a list" of all the gays in the Republican Party -in Congress and in the staff. The list is also an attempt (30 days out from an election) to let the GOP base know their party is "riddled with sinners". And we're accused of "McCarthyism"?!
To get the full story behind "the list", visit:
Gay Patriot who calls this a "gay witch hunt" --
"According to our critics here, the liberal party line is that it is Republicans outing gay Republican staffers on Capitol Hill. But as of now there have only been three entities claiming to actually have “The List.”
I don’t see a Republican among them. The only Republicans talking about the list are terrified GOP staffers, again according to Corn..."
...The great piece over at Ace of Spades via Homocon:
"Conservative Christians threaten gays to convert with dire promises of Hell in the next life. We, on the other hand, threaten gay Republicans with Hell in this life, by outing them and smearing them and making them the subject of public ridicule and stripping them of their sexual privacy."
and, we have to let Ann Coulter weigh in:
"We need to get a rulebook from the Democrats:
Boy Scouts -- As gay as you want to be.
Priests -- No gays!
Democrat politicians -Proud gay Americans.
Republican politicians - Presumed guilty.
White House Press Corps - No gays, unless they hate Bush.
Active Duty U.S. Military - As gay as possible.
Men Who Date Liza Minelli - Do I have to draw you a picture, Miss Thing?"
Gay Patriot calls this a gay witch hunt, Rush called it good old fashioned gay bashing... and I just call it malicious and the expected hypocrisy from the party that does it best. I hope this will open the eyes of some that have been hornswaggled into thinking the Democrats were the party of inclusion...
