Gay Republican Group GOProud Endorses Opponent of Barney Frank

Via Joe.My.God comes this bit of stink from Gay Republican group GOProud:

Lasalvia "Today, GOProud, the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies, endorsed Republican Sean Bielat in his race to unseat Democrat Barney Frank in Massachusetts’s 4th Congressional District. “If we really want to protect gay jobs we don’t need to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act [ENDA], we need to fire Barney Frank,” said Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud. “From his perch atop the Financial Services committee, Barney Frank was one of the architects of the financial meltdown that cost millions of Americans – including gay and lesbian workers – their jobs. Sean Bielat is a common-sense conservative who supports policies that will grow our economy, create jobs, and improve the lives of all Americans, but especially gay and lesbian Americans.”

Bielat's positions:

"He's a doctrinaire social conservative — a serious Catholic, he wouldn't answer whether he would allow abortion in cases of rape and incest. And he said he opposes not only gay marriage but also civil unions and gays serving openly in the military."

  1. This is madness.

    Barney Frank has done more for GLBT rights that anyone in the House - and he's a helluva smart guy.

    Fire him? Are they nuts?

  3. I am always amazed by "our" people that put "the economy" over our civil rights. Usually they are "a little" racist and think that life really was better in the 1950s. That they want to unseat one of our greatest political allies and one of our own is really sickening. Makes me wonder if there were Jews that voted for Hitler ? Very often they are comfortable closet cases that think they are fooling everyone they work with that they are strait and their boyfriend is really just a room mate.

  4. Trust fund babies who turned out to be gay.

  5. There is no such thing as a "common sense" conservative. They are all mad, it's just a matter of degree. That picture of LaSalvia looks like he's got something really big shoved up his butt and it's no longer vibrating.

  6. These idiots join Mehlman in the ranks of "greastest traitors" of all. hole!
    If they had any pride they wouldn't belong to that Republican nest of vipers.

  7. How exactly is Barney Frank the architect of a financial meltdown that occurred before he ever assumed control of the financial services committee?

  8. These GOProud people are just batshit nuts!

  9. That's EXACTLY who they are, Tom in Long Beach!

    Gay Republicans = Jews for Hitler.

  11. This doesn't seem helpful at all. Put them out of the tribe.

  12. Ummm guys, you are supposed to support candidates who are fir GLBT equal rights. You know this looks baaad and just stupid.

    Posted by: Gus | Sep 16, 2010 3:15:14 PM

  13. I'll say it again, Gay Republicans would sell their mothers into prostitution for a tax cut. They are scum. Shun them whenever you get the chance.

  14. And Gay Republicans are just bitter because no one, NO ONE, will fuck them. They are truly deserving of a beat down too.

  15. Between these jerks and the Log Cabin Republicans, I could puke! They all need a stiff one you know where!

    Posted by: Bill Cooney | Sep 16, 2010 4:32:44 PM

  16. "Between these jerks and the Log Cabin Republicans, I could puke!"

    The LCR don't endorse anti-gay candidates. Of course, this doesn't leave them with many candidates to support in the GOP anymore.

    Still, it's not fair to compare them to the GOProud nitwits.

  17. This Hypocrisy would normally make my logical brain short-circuit... so instead I try to temper the comments of these self-loathing nuts by reciting the line delivered by Philip Seymour Hoffman in the movie Flawless. His character was very out and talking to a committee of conservative gays.

  18. looks like my quote didn't take. - You're ashamed of us, but we're not ashamed of you. As long as you go down on your Banana Republican knees and suck dick, you're my sisters, and I love you. And fuck off!

  19. We recently had a candidates meet & greet and debate between Stonewall Dems of Southern Nevada and GOProud.

    There were 12 candidates tables. Six for Dems which were full of pro equality candidates. Six were empty because no Republican candidate would participate.

    The head of the local GOProud tried mightily to keep the discussion away from any LGBT issues whatsoever. AND he was sitting next to an assemblyman who proudly stated that he would vote (again) against Domestic partnership in Nevada because it was against his religion and that Gays should just enter into "legal business contracts"!

    Fucking idiots.

  20. Just remember we're all here complaining about LCR and GOProud. However some of you complaining still plan to stand with them in Nov because you hate Obama. You know the GAYtm is closed and fuck remember.

    GOProud doesn't give a fuck about Gay equality and even though LCR did that brief they did it to upstage Obama for whatever it was worth. Do you think they would have pulled that stunt on Clinton?????? HELL NO.

    Bottom line family Rome wasn't built in a day and unfortunately it is going to take some time to get all of these things done and it is working in our FAVOR. If you really think that republicans favor you. Then stop propping up Mehlman and those kats who are NOW endorsing marriage equality and not D.A.D.T. and are NOT in office where change comes from.

    You'd really know if they were for us by the ones who are in office and from what I see. They're not!

    A few things to think about because these Tea Party idiots are only using the economy to get back in power and mark my words the social issues will rise like fire if they retain power. You must not let them.

  21. Won't vote for Barney

  22. This is part of why I don't believe what ANY Republican says about their sexual orientation. "Gay" or "straight", none of it is believable.

    As for Frank, I think he's an idiot, but the available alternatives are even worse by every measure.

    Posted by: Randy | Sep 17, 2010 1:28:38 AM

  23. Frank is nothing special and, frankly, sometimes I'm disappointed in him. But- like others have eluded- the alternatives are horrific.

    Posted by: Rodney Wollam | Sep 17, 2010 2:15:29 AM

  24. I meant: "Alluded". Sry 'bout that.

    Posted by: Rodney Wollam | Sep 17, 2010 2:22:35 AM

  25. Barney is the first gay in history that republicans fear. He's smart, articulate, knowledgable, competent, focused -- and I'm sending him a check right now!
