Beginning in the late 1970's, Republicans seized control of every branch of the U.S. government in part through vicious gay-baiting.
After Bill Clinton won his first victory in 1992, Republicans immediately and relentlessly attacked him for tolerating gays in the military.
In 2004, Bush and the Republican Party made their opposition to gay marriage the centerpiece of their campaign. They put anti-gay marriage amendments on state ballots to turn out homophobic voters. They furiously attacked John Kerry for pointing out (in a supportive way) that Dick Cheney's own daughter is openly gay.
Now we know Bush's White House waved a gay male prostitute - Jim Guckert - into White House press conferences nearly every day for two years. Guckert, like many closeted gay Republicans, engaged in vicious gay-bashing himself: during the 2004 campaign, he wrote articles accusing John Kerry of running to be the "first gay president."
Jesus said, "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone."
It's time to expose every Republican gay-basher who is gay.
To be included, the individual must be:
- A Republican or conservative political activist
- Engaged in anti-gay advocacy or activism
- Gay or bi-sexual
- In the closet
Obviously the non-closeted members of the Log Cabin Republicans would not be included.
