Today, the Republican gay group GOProud endorsed Mitt Romney for the presidency, explaining that Romney was “light years better” than Obama, particularly on the economy. “Most gay Americans – like their straight counterparts – are not better off than they were 4 years ago,” stated Jimmy LaSalvia, GOProud’s executive director. “The truth is that gay people are living in the disastrous failed Obama economy too … President Obama and his friends on the left want this election to be about divisive social issues, because the President’s record on jobs and the economy is indefensible.”
This is hardly an outrageous statement – the fact is that many gays and lesbians around America care less about President Obama’s support for same-sex marriage than they do about his disastrous mishandling of the economy.
But according to Dan Savage, an ardent Obama supporter, these gay Republicans are “f*ggots.” This morning, he tweeted, “The GOP’s house faggots grab their ankles, right on cue … Pathetic.” (See video below)
Savage is, of course, the host of a show on MTV about sex, a syndicated sex columnist, the man who bullied Christian students who walked out on his anti-Bible ranting, the perverter of Rick Santorum’s name, the licker of doorknobs in Gary Bauer’s office, and an all-around nice guy. Some in the media have labeled him the “spokesgay” – seriously.
Two gay slurs in one Tweet. The gay left must be proud of their self-appointed spokesman. So must the Obama Administration, which has labeled this massive bully a hero of the anti-bullying movement, invited him to the White House, and cut videos on behalf of his It Gets Better Project. There’s no worse form of anti-gay bullying than to use slurs like the one Savage did here. Will the White House continue to back their man?
