Florida Tea Party Leader Says Gays Have Taken Over Local GOP

Danita Kilcullen

Co-founder of Tea Party Fort Lauderdale and Danita Kilcullen is absolutely losing it that the Log Cabin Republicans in Broward are actually having influence within the Republican party. In response to an email from Andy Eddy of the local Log Cabin Republicans, Kilcullen ranted:

We must fight with all we have… We must put  pressure on the House like has never been seen before.  I'll be damned if I will ever be forced to hire someone with orange hair, body/neck/face covered with tattoos, multiple piercings, or a man in a dress… or for that matter, a demonstrative effeminate male or purposeful butch-looking female.  The Log Cabins are the same lobbyist organization that has all but taken over BREC; and besides that, we have someone on the Board of BREC who is using her position to openly put pressure on some BREC members to stand for same-sex marriage.

Kilcullen, someone who isn't in the position to be denigrating the physical appearance of others, is a convicted criminal who was arrested in October 2010 for felony battery of a police officer but plead guilty to trespassing and a lesser charge of misdemeanor resisting arrest.

    Typically oppressive projection. As the article indicates, it’s more than a little ironic (and frankly amusing) that someone so unfortunately hatchet-faced would have issues with “butch” women.

    And I’ll be damned if I will ever be forced to hire someone with what has got to be the least flattering haircut in the history of hairdressing.

    Danita may actually be a closeted liberal. She will only refuse to hire people “covered” with tattoos. A few are probably OK. Only “demonstrative effeminate males” need not apply, which means your OK if there is just a hint of mint about you. A few piercings may even be OK with Danita, she will only exclude those with “multiple piercings” and it’s only the “purposeful butch-looking females” that she won’t hire. Dykes that are just butch looking naturally, like Danita, are OK. The woman is a screaming liberal.

    While I don’t agree with many of her stances, she’s spot on when it comes to employers being forced to hire trannies. Sexual orientation has no impact on your job performance but companies that are forced to hire shims could see a tangible loss of profits and customers as some guy in a dress and a bad wig flaunts his hairy fake boobs at customers and even children.

    I think it’s ridiculous that these “people” are trying to hijack ENDA legislation and get their pet cause added on to something that has nothing to do with them. If they want people to bow down to their crossdressing fetish or whatever then they should try and get it passed by themselves and not hold the rights of LGB people hostage to their demands.

    The comments were great fun (and, really, the only point of reading this post) until the usual idiocy showed up; thanks boys, most of you. BTW, the leading Croatian homophobe also has a Maggie-ish bob–it must be a prerequisite for the job.

  6. RICK says

    ERNIE I guess it’s idiocy to recognize when one has nothing in common with people? Or that one shouldn’t make their livelihood contingent on whether or not someone can pee in the girly room?

  7. andrew says

    If I opposed ENDA, I would use Rick’s logic to oppose equal employment opportunities for L, G, and T people. He posts, and maybe correctly, that those forced to hire “shims” could see a tangible loss of profits and customers. It may be equally true that someone forced to hire effeminate gay males or butch dykes may also face the loss of profits and customers. Maybe the B’s are safe because we can’t pick out those rascals for our intolerance. If ENDA is enacted all will be guaranteed Equal Employment Opportunity. There will be bumps in the road early on in the laws implementation, but in the long run it will make America a better place for ALL. Remember the days when Black folks couldn’t work in most professions, eat in restaurants with whites, had to sit in the back of the bus and in the balcony of movie theaters, marry whites, go to the same schools with whites etc etc because their very presence offended the sensibilities of most whites? Thankfully those days are over and the days of discriminating against LGB AND T folks are numbered. This nation and all of Western Civilization is moving toward EQUALITY.

    Can someone here FINALLY say a good word for the Log Cabin Republicans? This woman’s anger is proof that in some areas at least, socially progressive Republicans are starting to have success in transforming the local party into a more tolerant place.

    Go Log Cabin!

  9. says

    I actually hope she’s right. I am a major Democrat and always have been. And I will work as hard as I can to help intelligent and respectable Democrats elected to office. However, I also whole-heartedly respect any GLBT person who infiltrates the GOP or Tea Party to advance equality.

  10. andrew says

    @ Dr. Chris: The Log Cabin types don’t really infiltrate the Republican Party to make America a real equal opportunity society. They agree with the Republican Party’s trickle down economics that has allowed the rich to get MUCH richer, the middle class to shrink and the poor to stagnate. The Log Cabin types just happen to be gay so they just want a narrow sexual or marriage equality while keeping our economic system which benefits the upper class firmly in place.

    Zombie Louise Brooks rises from the grave!!!

    I guess she forgot where the auditions for the local dinner theater production of “Cabaret” were taking place.

    ENDA like laws do not require anyone to hire people w/ orange hair or neck tattoos. Employers can require employees to conform to appearance and dress codes as long as this does not place an undue burden on the employee. Companies must have a consistent policy though. For example, requiring make-up to cover up tattoos or simply refusing to hire. Not a mixture of the two.

  14. Chucktech says

    Gosh, Jack Gillies, two down and 43 to go. We’re really just sailing right into communism, aren’t we?

    Oh, and BTW, your non-existent god is nothing more than a silly, puerile hoax, so just can the Leviticus crap.

  15. ELI says

    But, But, All I ever hear is that the Tea Party isn’t about social issues.

    This post clearly shows that the Tea Partiers are nothing but a bunch on liars.

    Without their politics of hate the Cons (like Jack Gilles) have nothing.

    Character assassination is a deliberate and sustained process that aims to destroy the credibility and reputation of a person, institution, social group, or nation. Agents of character assassinations employ a mix of open and covert methods to achieve their goals, such as raising false accusations, planting and fostering rumors, and manipulating information.

    Character assassination is an attempt to tarnish a person’s reputation. It may involve exaggeration, misleading half-truths, or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the targeted person. It is a form of defamation. In practice, character assassination may involve doublespeak, spreading of rumors, innuendo or deliberate misinformation on topics relating to the subject’s morals, integrity, and reputation.
