Gay Republican under attack from gays in CA

Let's pretend you're a screenwriter assigned to develop a character to run for Congress in California in 2014. You need a compelling story, so you make him an orphan at 13 wait, even better his dad leaves the family two weeks before his mother died and then social services splits up his brothers and sisters leaving him alone in the world.

Despite those challenges he perseveres, putting himself through a top-tier college and then building and selling two multimillion-dollar companies.

Thus financially secure, he decides to dedicate himself to public service and runs for City Council.

In his first term he works across party lines and four years after his first election he passes major pension reform that saves the city money and protects the retirement savings of thousand of people.

For good measure, you make him openly gay and in a committed relationship, the first to feature his partner in campaign literature. Hes the perfect candidate to send to Washington, D.C. and, of course, hes a Democrat, right?

Wrong. The real story proves that truth is stranger and sometimes better than fiction. Your character already exists in Carl DeMaio of San Diego except that hes not a Democrat, hes a (gasp!) Republican.

This article is so painfully ignorant. It is just a long rant about someone who can't fathom the idea that someone's sexual orientation isn't their sole defining characteristic.

You mean in society "Republican" and "Gay" are considered like "Oil" and "Water" just can't mix.. despite the fact the Republican party is the party of emancipation (external - login to view), freed the slaves.

Diverse opinions among LGBTQers are not permitted. Democrats want them to stay on the plantation, and serve the master.

Actually, the situation in the article is a pretty good example of how there are diverse opinions within the LGBT community. The author just seems flabbergasted by that fact. "He's gay, and he's gay. Why are they not on the same team? Gay people are all the same, right? They are all gay and somehow not the same? I don't get it!"

Yup some gays wouldn't even mind signing a covenant with their university . Imagine that .

Lol, you really want to bring this discussion out of that other thread?

If they want to voluntarily do that completely separate from any requirement to get into law school, good for them. The issue isn't with students wanting to sign the form or not, it is the fact that the school wants to make it a requirement in order to get into a highly competitive professional program. The school is restricting the choices of prospective law students.

If they want to be lawyers, lying on a form to get into law school is not a good start. See the "good character requirement" for becoming a licensed lawyer.

Gay folks should be spread out along the entire ideological spectrum. When that happens we will know real progress has been made.

They should... but they will be chastised for having a differing opinion not in line with how the White Liberal Democrat Elite says they should act.

People from all ends of the political spectrum chastise people from all other parts of the political spectrum for not agreeing with them. Why do people expect that to be any different among gay people?

Are they supposed to all support each other politically just because they are all gay?

Who says they are not? There are lots of gay people who have right wing political views on many subjects. It is just unfortunate that so many people on the right wing fight to restrict the rights of gay people as well. It certainly can be harder for gay people to find a spot on the right that fits their other beliefs without supporting people who attack their own individual rights.

According to who? The article in the OP is from Fox, so I we can probably assume the author is not all that left wing.

Really, what is the point of this article other than to point out that not all gay people support all gay politicians?

It seems like the more you post in any topic, you make less and less sense but post more and more gifs.

Why not just join 4chan if this is the kind of stuff you want to post?

If you are Gay, and from any ethnic group Democrats and left wing are all fer ya. But if you dare to be a Republican and Gay- Heaven help ya as you are the Devil in a Blue Suit.

That's not the only problem. I liked the bit about the attack from the "anonymous left-wing SuperPac."

Anybody see a problem with that?

Lol, I wasn't going to get into picking the article apart, but yeah. How exactly would they know they are left wing if they are anonymous?

I also like how his "full disclosure" about how he used to work with a guy who works on this guy's campaign comes a full 17 paragraphs into the article. I wonder how many people in this thread even read far enough into the article to find out that important piece of info.

If you have a problem with what I post, use your words to explain what it is.

Lol, why is this bad? Of course democrats like other democrats more than they like republicans. The same is clearly true the other way as well.

People can like and dislike each other for reasons other than their sexual orientation.

Gay conservatives and libertarians are in the closet. The right wing is a coalition...part of which is not comfortable with LGBTQers, and part of which seeks allies to man the barricades. Better dead than red.

why? You're too damn ignorant to see the contradiction in what you posted here, and what you posted on the TWU thread.

It is in no way contradictory. Read the post on this above, or post in the other thread.

In what possible way would saying that gay people are not all the same and saying that gay people should not be discriminated against contradictory statements?
