The following information was in our local newspaper today: Log Cabin Republicans plan to "honor" our radical, right wing anti-gay Congress critter, Ann Marie Buerkle at a fundraiser Thursday.
You read that right.
Apparently, Log Cabin Republicans are planning to “honor” some gay-hating Republican Congress critters, including our hate-filled radical right-wing extremist misrepresentative in Washington, Ann Marie Buerkle, at a fundraising event in Washington Thursday (at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, according to our local newspaper).
So, let me get this right. Ann Marie Buerkle, who has never voted in support of any gay rights legislation and who is, in fact, one of the biggest hate-mongers in terms of doing her best to prevent those in the gay community from having the same rights as everyone else, who is dedicated to trying to ensure that they are treated as second-class citizens, is being honored by the Log Cabin Republicans?
And, let me get this right. Not only is this anti-gay bigot being “honored,” by them, but these Log Cabin Republicans are going to do this as part of a fundraiser, to help raise money for Buerkle's re-election? Really?
The rationale by these Log Cabin Republicans is that they support these crackpots on fiscal matters, so want to be sure to continue to be able to work on changing their viewpoints on gay matters.
Using their logic (or lack thereof), if the Log Cabin Republicans had been around during the 1930's and 1940's, they would have been assisting Adolph Hitler in exterminating gay people because they wanted to keep their dialogue open with him in the hopes of eventually changing his mind.
Are Log Cabin Republicans insane, or just plain stupid?
