Kapos at GOProud Support Willow Palin's "Faggot" Slur

I was a GOP activist, precinct captain and city committee member for the better part of a decade - until the Christian Taliban effectively took over the party and the worship of ignorance, religious extremism, racism and down right insanity became the hallmarks of the GOP. There was a time when the GOP actually had some principles that weren't an embarrassment. Back then, one did not need to be a candidate for membership in a white supremacist group or a religious fanatic to be a member/supporter of the GOP. But those days are, in my opinion, gone and other than people who - in my view - selfishly worry only about paying preferably no taxes, I really don't know many thinking, rational members of the GOP.
From my perspective, conservative Christians are among the biggest GOP hypocrites as they push for lower taxes via slashing of government programs that aid children, the poor and the homeless. WWJD other than be appalled? But one group takes the absolute first prize for lunacy and hypocrisy: gay Republicans. I continue to view gay Republicans to be the modern day equivalent of Jews joining the Nazi Party. In its latest batshitery, GOProud is attacking those who found Willow Palin's use of an anti-gay slur to be offensive:
“Willow Palin is a 16 year old girl who, like all 16 year olds is going to make mistakes and say things she shouldn’t have. This, however, has nothing to do with Willow Palin or the substance of what she said on Facebook. The ‘slur’ used here is one you could hear on the streets of West Hollywood or Chelsea every day of the week. Apparently, it’s only a ‘homophobic slur’ when it comes from the daughter of a conservative female leader. Make no mistake; this is all about destroying Sarah Palin by any means necessary.

“The angry misogynistic left and their accomplices in the main stream media have been unable to take down Governor Palin – no matter how hard they have tried. Unable to take her down directly they now have decided to try to hurt her by attacking the most important thing in her life – her family.

“Any person, gay or straight, who participates in this cheap political smear should be ashamed of themselves.”
Excuse me, but if anyone needs to be ashamed of themselves, it's the members of GOProud and their leadership. These folks obviously are self-loathing and in need of a good shrink and some serious meds.
