For years I have equated being gay and a Republican - or, worse yet, a Log Cabin Republican ("LCR") - as being somewhat akin to be a Jew in 1930's Germany who supports Hitler and the Nazi Party. All of the LCR's whining about changing the Republican Party from within has always been a pile of bullshit and, in my view, a symptom of lingering internalized homophobia. Having been in the GOP myself and a City Committee member for 8 years, the GOP simply is simply NOT susceptible to change from within. Only successive electoral defeats will bring change. Now, with the election of Der Fuhrer, change from within is even more remote. So now we see the LCR begging Trump to not rescind the pro-LGBT executive orders put in place by Barack Obama. Seriously, what did these cretins expect to happen if Trump was elected? But for the harm that will be done to others in the LGBT community, the LCR members deserve whatever misfortune that may befall them under the Republicans they worked to elect. Their beg letter to Trump is here. Here's a brief summary of the contents:
I'm sorry, but the LCR's have been living in a frigging fantasy world. Now, it seems they are about to receive a harsh wake up call.
