Bravo. Once again, this blog frequently disagrees with the philosophy and tactics of the NGLTF…. which makes it all the more refreshing that they are doing the right thing by condemning the Gay GOP staffer witchhunt.
I received this statement from the NGLTF last evening.
“We are unequivocally opposed to the compilation or release of such a list and it doesn’t matter to us who is doing it: It’s wrong.” — Matt Foreman, executive director, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
Yes it is wrong! In fact, to try to root people out of their jobs because you disagree with their political beliefs is the most vile, anti-American tactic one can imagine.
Thank you Matt for having the courage to stand up to those in our community that are consumed with blind hatred of diversity of opinion.
Now if the ultra-left NGLTF can issue this very strongly-worded statement condemning the Outing Campaign begun by Gay Liberal Activists, can someone please explain what the hell is wrong with Log Cabin Republicans and the Human Rights Campaign?
First, here has been Log Cabin’s response so far to “The List” being compiled and used against gay Republican Congressional staffers…
Nada. Tell me how the national gay Republican organization can remain silent while their own friends and members are being picked off in a political witchhunt? It boggles the mind.
And now here is the best the HRC could do….
No one at HRC has this infamous “list” and furthermore, no one at HRC is aiding and abetting in sending out this “list”.
But no condemnation of “The List” and nothing calling on anyone to actually cease this Gay Inquisition. If anyone of you out there with moderate-to-right political leanings gives another penny to the Hypocrite Rights Campaign, I will personally smack you upside the head.
First they came for the gay conservatives and no one said anything because they weren’t one….
