  1. Assuming because he doesn’t support the big issue, gay marriage.

    Comment by darkeyedresolve — June 1, 2010 @ 4:13 pm - June 1, 2010

  2. Odd that nowhere is there an easy link to the supposedly offending article. I did find this article though, which seems to be rather evenhanded” LINK.

    And nowhere is there even mention of why he is labled anti-gay (except the usual blather about how its automatic…blah blah.

    For instance, although Djou supports repeal of DADT, he seems to be opposed not only to marriage, but to civil unions. Thats a pretty extreme position for anyone who might claim to deserve the label “pro-gay”.

    Why is that not-so-minor point not mentioned at all in LaSalvia’s piece, or Carroll’s commnetary? Ya kinda get the idea that they are not interested in having y’all make an informed decision about Djou, or his detractors? Just wanting to get your knees a-jerkin’…

  3. Tano, apparently, it’s only liberals who can hold two states simultaniously? after all if a job can simultaniously be not offered and offered and the President can be pro-gay and oppose SSM, then it must be a liberal trait to spin so often that one can be two places at once.

    Djou isn’t anti-gay. He just has an (R) behind his name and that doesn’t fit the paper’s narration.

  4. And nowhere is there even mention of why he is labled anti-gay

    It seems that the Advocate changed the title of the piece and probably some of the content. Didn’t think of that, did you?

    I can’t imagine why his position on civil unions would matter. Bush supported civil unions and was still branded a bigot homophobe by Gay Inc. Il douche opposes gay marriage, but supports civil unions and yet somehow he’s not a homophobe, even though he surrounds himself with some.

    It all comes down to that Get out of jail free “D” after one’s name.

  5. The leftist world view is that anyone who is conservative is automatically and irrefutably anti-gay.

  6. My favourite quote from the comments on the ‘antigay’ article:

    nobody calls Obama or Bill Clinton “anti-gay”

    Oh yes they do.

    It seems that the Advocate changed the title of the piece and probably some of the content. Didn’t think of that, did you?

    It’s a possibility, though accusations of an attempt to quietly and deceitfully retract what they said are something I’d require more evidence for, such as a screenshot or preferably a cached version of the unmodified. Without any of that, this is just an accusation.

    I can’t imagine why his position on civil unions would matter. Bush supported civil unions and was still branded a bigot homophobe by Gay Inc.

    Really? A man who openly supported a proposed constitutional amendment that read as follows:

    Marriage in the United States shall consist solely of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.

    Can be said to have supported civil unions?

    Il douche opposes gay marriage, but supports civil unions and yet somehow he’s not a homophobe, even though he surrounds himself with some.

    Since there’s never been a President by the name of ‘Il douche’, I’m going to categorize this as nonsense and assume you’re drunk or high.

    How about the actual text of the hyperlink?

    Really? A man who openly supported a proposed constitutional amendment that read as follows:</blockqtuo
    But, unfortunately, Serenity, HRC, the gay left, and the Obama Party fully endorse and support as pro-gay Obama Party members who endorsed and supported the FMA.

    So it’s pretty obvious that Livewire is right; it has nothing to do with what Djou actually does or believes, and everything to do with the R after his name. The gay left and your fellow Obama Party liberals have made it absolutely clear that being “pro-gay” is purely based on party affiliation and nothing else.

  8. More and more great news for patriots…..

    Comment by Gene in Pennsylvania — June 1, 2010 @ 7:22 pm - June 1, 2010

  9. An actual reading of the FMA:

    Marriage in the United States shall consist solely of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.

    The key phrase is “shall be construed”, meaning that judges can no longer invent a “right” to marriage out of thin air. It still enables civil unions to be passed legislatively.

  10. Really? A man who openly supported a proposed constitutional amendment that read as follows:

    Can be said to have supported civil unions?

    Yes, especially when he said:

    “I don’t think we should deny people rights to a civil union, a legal arrangement, if that’s what a state chooses to do so,” Bush said in an interview aired Tuesday on ABC. Bush acknowledged that his position put him at odds with the Republican platform, which opposes civil unions.

    “I view the definition of marriage different from legal arrangements that enable people to have rights,” said Bush, who has pressed for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. “States ought to be able to have the right to pass laws that enable people to be able to have rights like others.”

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6338458/

    So suck on that one.

    Since there’s never been a President by the name of ‘Il douche’, I’m going to categorize this as nonsense and assume you’re drunk or high.

    Since we have a president who fancies looking down his nose at people, just like Mousolini (http://tinyurl.com/28ucjd4) and since you didn’t know Bush supports Civil Unions, I’m going to conclude you’re a dumbass.

  11. Let’s see, in the house 5 Republicans and in the Senate only one Senator voted to repeal DADT. I think we can safely say that the GOP is overwhelmingly anti-gay. Yes, I know 35 Democrats voted against the repeal but we are working replacing them.

    Sorry but it’s laughable to suggest that the right is not overtly and blatantly anti-gay. Yes, I know in private a lot of them are nice to you. Which means they just use other people’s homophobia as an election tactic which is rather repulsive if you ask me.

    If you want to argue that other issues are more important to you than the gay issues, that’s fair enough. But don’t insult our intelligence by suggesting that the platform that Republicans run on isn’t openly hostile to the rights of gay people. And yes, we are all aware that Democrats aren’t perfect but Republicans have a long way to go to even be close to catching up.

    I don’t tolerate people who are nice to me in public and then berate me in public and I can’t really understand why other people tolerate that either but that’s their problem I guess. If the right wants to get me to believe they aren’t anti-gay, the DADT repeal vote would have been a good place to start. 5 in Congress and 1 in the Senate. Well that’s a start but y’all have a long way to go.

    BTW, gaypatriots, maybe you could start by convincing the people who read your blog. It seems only the liberals who read you agree with you about DADT and gay marriage.

    Comment by Houndentenor — June 2, 2010 @ 5:40 pm - June 2, 2010

  12. Houndentenor, I’ll berate you in public just fine.

    You assume that because of a vote on one issue, you can reaffirm your prejudices and feel all warm and fuzzy. Why are you assuming that the Dem’s voted to repeal DADT because they want gays to serve with honour? Could it not be that they want votes?

    And I’m sure there’s many a Repulican who feels, like me, that when the plan is to wait to see the finall impact, then work based on that. Heck it’s what the administration said was the plan.

    You complain about people being nice to your face but berate you in [private] You mean like John Edwards? Or maybe you mean like how Harry Reid and Bill Clinton have talked about President Obama?

    Wake up buddy, the Dems don’t give a Damn about anyone. You’re a wallet to be plucked, a voting sheep to be counted.

  13. Republicans are actually more pro-gay than Democrats/Liberals. Here are a few points to explain my position:

    Which political party opposes abortion? Republicans.
    Argument: Liberal moms will abort unwanted gay fetuses. Doctors might try “reparative therapy” on human eggs that happen to have a “gay gene.”

    Which political party supports gun rights? Republicans.
    Argument: Hate violence and heinous crimes are always wrong. Every American wants to be safe at home and on the streets, no doubt about it. A handgun, pepper spray, and martial arts will do the trick.

    Which political party opposes Radical Islam? Republicans.
    Problem: In our today’s world, Islam is the most cited faith when it comes to terrorism and religious extremism. Heard of “Sharia Law”? If and when Islam subjugates and rules the United States, Americans will have so much to worry about. You don’t see today’s Christians, Jews, Buddhists, and Hindus persecuting and killing gay people on a wide and frequent scale. Something the secular Nazis and Communists did. Socialism and Communism is supported by the Liberals, by the way. And our U.S. Military have saved millions of gays and lesbians across the world in every major war they battled and succeeded. I know right? How cool is that. In addition; Republicans are strong supporters of the U.S. Military, State of Israel, and foreign policy. Did I forget to mention that Israel is gay-friendlier than America is? Ironic.

    A growing trend of Republicans are supporting civil unions. And if you want “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT)” repealed why not wait for the U.S. Military to finish its review of that policy first, no matter who you are? Let’s show some patience and understanding for the Military. I am optimistic that more Republicans will join the repeal effort.

    Democrats/Liberals definitely failed when it comes to gay people’s civil rights:
    -Hate crimes legislation was a failed solution.
    -Rushing on DADT repeal will also be a failed solution.
    -As for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), we’ll see what Republicans do. Hint: Republicans are pro-business folks so, yes, they do want gay people to work. Until then, I can’t say anything about “ENDA” at this point.
    -And Americans do have strong beliefs about Marriage but I am against a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. I do understand why conservative Republicans want to protect a cultural institution like Marriage. I am not trying to be mean or anything, but who wants to see polygamous Mormons or Muslims getting married on American soil? LOL! It proves to me Liberals have no respect for American culture or its military.

    I switched my very Liberal Democrat status to the Republican Party just recently. I live in California and I want a stable economy, something conservative Republicans like Carly Fiorina are able to do this time around.

    This is what I mean. Are Democrats/Liberals really that “pro-Gay”? Republicans have the BEST solutions when it comes to protecting the lives and interests of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people. And plus! They don’t exploit the votes and money of their American constituents, which Democrats do persistently.

    I remember a Fox News episode a few years ago about Ann Coulter stating that Republicans disagree with same-sex marriage but they don’t want to discriminate gay people. And there was a recent CNN episode on Ann Coulter talking to Joy Behar on CNN about waterboarding. Joy Behar asks Coulter if she wants to be waterboarded. Coulter replies to Behar and asks if she wants to be aborted along with the Islamic terrorists. And I laughed when Coulter said those things. Moving on…

    REPUBLICANS and CONSERVATIVES must really care about their LGBT American constituents.

  14. Which means they just use other people’s homophobia as an election tactic which is rather repulsive if you ask me.

    But, since you fully endorse and support Obama Party members who do the same, such as Barack Obama’s insistence that “marriage is between a man and a woman”, what we see is that you overcome your repulsion quite nicely.

    Livewire nailed it, Houndentenor; you’re just reaffirming your prejudices. The Republican Party has figured out that gay and lesbian liberals like yourself are completely irrational bigots who scream “pro-gay” and “anti-gay” based solely on political affiliation and nothing else.

    As a result, unlike the Obama Party which puts pandering to minorities first, the Republican Party is actually interested in what’s best for the military. They’re aware that you’re never going to support them, so there’s no reason for them to give a damn about your concerns — and a lot of reason for them to focus on the important issue, which is the military’s own assessment.

    You are fundamentally incompatible with Republican and conservative philosophy because minority status trumps content of character and performance in your worldview. Simply put, the Obama Party, in which your minority status is far more important than your values, skills, or contributions to society, is the perfect place for you, Houndentenor.

    For example….?

    And how, exactly, does “I don’t feel comfortable around THOSE people elevate your electability?

    But don’t insult our intelligence

    Well, if you showed any example of intelligence to be insulted….

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — June 3, 2010 @ 2:43 am - June 3, 2010

  16. ‘And how, exactly, does “I don’t feel comfortable around THOSE people,” elevate your electability?’

    Maybe there’s some merit to this argument though…

    after all, Edwards did get to run for VP…
