Log Cabin Republicans Enraged by Gay Beefcake Obamacare Ad


Last week we posted an ad by Out2Enroll (the new effort by the Center for American Progress, the Sellers Dorsey Foundation, and the Federal Agencies Project to try and get LGBT signed up for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act) and Full Frontal Freedom.

The ad featured several scantily-clad Santa's helpers urging LGBT people to sign up for Obamacare, and the Log Cabin Republicans are enraged by it. They released a statement yesterday denouncing the clip:

"This cynical ad betrays the depths Obamacare advocates will sink to in order to pad their pathetic enrollment numbers," Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo declared. "As a self-proclaimed 'fierce advocate' of gay equality, President Obama would do well to distance himself from this nonsense and denounce it immediately. This ad is also an example of the left promoting harmful stereotypes that gay men are nothing more than sex-crazed lechers. If anyone on the right made such a comparison, liberals would be apoplectic. At a time when left-wing propagandists are decrying Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson for equating homosexuality with promiscuity and deviance, Out2Enroll and others should take a look in the mirror and ask if the truth is that they are the ones responsible for promoting such harmful stereotypes."

  1. @Rick and others: THIS IS NOT AN AD PRODUCED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. It was produced and paid for by the Sellers Dorsey Foundation, the Center for American Progress and others. All private groups.

    Think what you will about the ad, or the ACA, but stop clutching your pearls that this is how the government is promoting the law.

    Plus, THIS IS TONGUE IN CHEEK. No one would care if bikini-clad babes or hunks were selling the law to straight men and women if it was done in humor, as this one was.

  2. The Ad was fun and certainly harmless. If the LCR crowd think it promotes stereotypes that gay men are "nothing more than sex-crazed lechers" they need to get their heads examined. The LCR jump at every chance to criticize Obama, democrats and the left in general, in their attempt to be accepted by the Republican Party that HATES them because they are GAY.

  3. The Log Cabin Republicans endorsed Mitt Romney who ran on an official Republican Party platform of calling for a constitutional amendment against marriage equality. This proves they are not a real gay-advocacy group, but a front organization of the right-wing of the party masquerading as a gay group in a cynical attempt to get gay people to vote for Republicans who would deny gay people basic civil rights. Gay people know this and don't pay any attention to anything the LCRs say.

  4. If this was a video of straight men and women dancing around in their underwear, I doubt anyone would describe them as "sex-crazed." But more importantly, the fact that they call them "sex-crazed lechers" speaks volumes, since the the word "lecher" connotes a person whose sexual desires are offensive.

    Basically, they're saying gay sex is gross.

  5. They are "outraged." No, they're just out of it...
