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."

    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.

    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.

    goproud are more than likely a group of straight repuks claiming to be gay. they work against and support issues not in the best interest of the community .screw them

    “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.

    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.

  6. Brix says

    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!

  7. says

    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.

  8. Hans says

    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 Dems….you 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.

  9. Randy says

    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.
