THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE.
THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE.

This Monday, the Republican party set out its 2016 platform, which — QUELLE SURPRISE — was chock full of a lot of anti-gay craziness! Can you even believe it? HAHAHAHAHA, yes you can believe it, because that has kind of been their whole thing for many, many, many years now!

However, it seems that the Log Cabin Republicans have been in the dark lo these past few decades, because they simply cannot believe that the Republican Party they have grown to know and love would put things like opposing same sex marriage and trans people going to the bathroom, and supporting gay conversion therapy right there in its platform! And now they are mad! So mad, that Gregory T. Angelo, President of the Log Cabin Republicans, sent this letter out to his fellow self-hating gays:

Dear Friend:

There’s no way to sugar-coat this: I’m mad as hell — and I know you are, too.

Moments ago, the Republican Party passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party’s 162-year history.

Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of “pray the gay away” — it’s all in there.

This isn’t my GOP, and I know it’s not yours either.

YES IT DAMN WELL IS. It is absolutely your GOP! It is the GOP you voted for, and supported, time and time again, in spite of every piece of anti-LGBT legislation they put forward for EVER. It is the same GOP that has put opposition to same-sex marriage in every single platform since 1992. It is the same GOP whose members have been trying to outlaw trans people pooping since they first found out about trans people existing. It is the same GOP that just, on the anniversary of the Orlando shooting, proposed legislation that would make it legal for government employees and government contractors to discriminate against LGBT people. The same GOP that has consistently helped to elect candidates who not only do not want you to have any rights, but who also would like to see you burn in a pit of fire for all eternity. It is the GOP of Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, George W. Bush, Todd Akin et cetera ad infinitum. It is the party that has repeatedly compared your desire to marry the person you love to someone wanting to screw a dog.

“They are misquoting me. I said I didn’t hate people who engage in homosexual behavior… I simply said by legalizing it you are opening the door to many other things such as bestiality, child molestation, and abortion. See… these things are all interconnected. Where are the limits? Today we legalize gay marriage in New York… next who knows what will be legalized? Laws exist for a reason.” — Sarah Palin, Fox News, 2011

Yes. They don’t hate you, they just think you’re a lot like child molesters!

Did you Log Cabin Republicans honestly think that if you just kept supporting the GOP, selflessly putting your hatred of poor people over your concern for your own rights, that one day they would turn around and decide to have your back? Or does your log cabin just not have any windows?

Angelo continued by suggesting that presumptive GOP Nominee Donald Trump was actually super awesome about things when it comes to gay rights and that they should follow in his footsteps:

Heck, it’s not even Donald Trump’s! When given a chance to follow the lead of our presumptive presidential nominee and reach out to the LGBT community in the wake of the awful terrorist massacre in Orlando on the gay nightclub Pulse, the Platform Committee said NO.

Yeah, Donald Trump sure is GREAT on LGBT rights. Except for the fact that he has said that those rights should be left to the states, so that bigots can have a say in whether or not you get to have them or not. It’s only fair!

Angelo then asked for some money so that they can go to the convention and totally change everybody’s mind on a thing that has been their main thing for at least two decades now!

BUT … now is not the time to sit around feeling sorry for ourselves. Log Cabin Republicans has been officially credentialed for the Republican National Convention, and when it convenes in Cleveland in a mere 6 days’ time I want to be able to take a stand, but we’re going to need your support to do it.

Cleveland is rightly making the most of their time in the spotlight, and prices for advertising in area news outlets are sky-high.

That’s why I’m writing to ask for your help.

Please give today and give generously — $500, $250, $100, or whatever you can give would go a long way to ensuring we don’t go quietly into the night.

Take back the Platform. Take back the Party. Stand up today and let the folks on the Platform Committee who paved the way to this foolishness know you’re not going down without a fight!

Sincerely,

Gregory T. Angelo
President

Again, opposition to same-sex marriage has been in the GOP platform since 1992. You can’t “take back” what wasn’t there to begin with, Gregory. You “taking back” the Republican Party would be like me “taking back” the Daughters of the American Revolution or the Hair Club for Men.

But sure! Pour your hard-earned money into this totally not-futile effort! Do it up! And maybe, in 100 years or so, the Republican Party will start to see you as human beings fully deserving of rights. We wish you all the luck in the world!

    why is it log cabin? What’s the metaphor I’m not seeing?

    • vivian

      Lincoln logs?

      • Belasaurius

        found it:
        The group initially proposed to name themselves Lincoln Club, but found that name was already in use by another California Republican organization. Thus, the name Log Cabin Republicans was chosen as an alternative title. This designation calls attention to the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln. The Log Cabin Republicans suggest that Lincoln founded the Republican Party on the philosophies of liberty and equality. These principles, Log Cabin argue, are consistent with their platform of an inclusive Republican Party.

        • bubbuhh

          They very dull gayz. No wonder they keep tryin to jooin the GOPeez.

        • JMP

          The Republican party was originally founded on liberty and equality, yes; they also turned away from those values a very, very long time ago and now support authoritarian aristocracy.

        • Lizzietish81

          Also there’s a theory that Abe was into logs.

          eta: And yes I mean dicks.

        • msanthropesmr

          “Party against self interest”

    • bubbuhh

      Lincoln was famed for layin out some serious wood. Nicknamez like The Railspitter,

  • Callyson

    This isn’t my GOP, and I know it’s not yours either.

    Spoiler alert: it never was your GOP, Log Cabin Republicans. They do not want you (well, maybe some of them want your money) and they never will. They’re just not that into you. The earlier you accept this fact, the easier it will be to move on…

  • bubbuhh

    Log Cabin just a very strange closet where some kin hide from themself.

  • JMP

    Donald Trump did fucking not reach out to the LGBT community after the Orlando massacre; he claimed that he was actually better than Democrats on gay rights because he is super racist against Muslims, which is completely stupid and wrong and shows how Trump has nothing but contempt for any minority, which includes you.

    • Ezio

      He just used that as a platform to say, “see how right I am?”

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      Trumplethinskin actually tweeted congrats to himself about “being right” about terrorists. If that’s what passes for “reaching out to the LGBT community” in the Log Cabin, I can see why they vote R.

  • memzilla

    Take back the Platform. Take back the Party.

    Jeebus H. Tap Dancing Christ On A Soda Cracker, Log Cabinites, you couldn’t take this shit back with a Kong-sized grappling hook and a USS Iowa-sized PTO. You’ve really gotta stop smoking that K2 crap, it’s gonna rot your brain out even more than it is already.

    • msanthropesmr

      Take it back to where, exactly?

      • natoslug

        Out back and put it out of our misery, hopefully.

  • arglebargle

    I would love to see a third political party emerge from this clusterfuck. Even a fourth. The nutjobs have overtaken the Republican party. Hopefully the sane ones, if there are any, will start something new and have a civil discourse with the Democratic party, along with another new more socialist party. Let’s party people.

  • SDGeoff

    I could just smell the grift in the air at the beginning of Mr Angelo’s letter. It gave itself away in the first two paragraphs. The Log Cabin Club wallows in denial.

    • arglebargle

      step 4. – profit

      • SDGeoff

        : )

  • natoslug

    I have two fucks I can give to the Log Cabin cause. Will that be enough? Whoops, too late, I appear to have no fucks to give.

  • JMP

    This is what you get for supporting a party that absolutely hates you just because either your desire to not pay your fair share of taxes or your own hatred of black people trumps (pun unintended) your self-respect. If gay Republicans actually cared about their own civil rights, they wouldn’t be Republicans, and I for one don’t feel sorry for them at all.

  • limberrat

    The GOP only utilizes your existence to claim they have appeal to the LGBT community. The sooner you realize that the party hates your guts and it is time for you to move on, the better.

    • SDGeoff

      And this is precisely what they do not get.

  • msanthropesmr

    “When one club offered to waive its no-Jews rule for Groucho, provided he abstained from using the swimming pool, he remarked, “My daughter’s only half Jewish, can she wade in up to her knees?””

    • arglebargle

      Should have gone for up to her waist. Then she could piss in it.

  • The log cabin republicans are almost as moronic as black republicans are. You get suckered in by their sweet talking fiscal reform only to be blinded to the fact that they are the most loose spenders in history. Then they blindside you again by telling you have to sit at the back of the bus because only straight white xitian businessmen need apply.

    • Now, I’m not lumping all of My Repubes together (lots have gravitated to the GOP under much less pretense), but FFS try and knock some sense into your party before the cognitive dissonance blows your head up.

      • Fiscal conservatism sounds great on paper – only problem is that it’s a pipe dream and fantasy put forth by the talking heads on the right. Sooner you can realize the puppets are just out for their own skin, the sooner you can elicit some positive change in your party.

    • limberrat

      Let’s hear from the black republicans!

      I dunno. Black Mormons are pretty confusing to me too.

        • Logic of Color

          Good point

        • PubOption

          They should be fine, it’s not 1977 any longer.

        • Aquaria

          Black people tend not to be living in places in Utah where there aren’t other churches. The LDS in small towns are extremely insular and make it clear that outsiders are not welcome. After one too many outsiders went through one of the FLDS strongholds, one of their freaks got in his SUV and started running people off the road, including my husband and me, among others. A group of us finally banded together, and started looking everywhere for a state trooper. We finally found one and that was the only way that fuckier stopped terrorizing us all.

      • Aquaria

        Gladys Knight becoming one of them is the real mystery.

        Why? Why? That gorgeous voice, and she’s wasting it on a racist delusion?

        Oh my stars. I must go to the vintage stuff to remember why I loved her:

    I’ve never understood the Log Cabin Republicans. But I guess there are some gay folks who do like fucking over the poor and what’s left of the middle-class. Apparently “hooray-for-Me-and-fuck-everyone-else” jackasses do come in all sexual preferences.

    • Latverian Diplomat

      Hey, the expression “not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around” had to come from somewhere.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      Ex-freakin’-actly. The stages of acceptance of gays, for a lot of straight people, are 1) fear and demonize gay people, 2) glorify and automatically defend all gay people, 3) finally realize some are great and some are assholes – they’re just fuckin’ human beings like the rest of us.

    • Jgb979

      I just don’t understand why they wouldn’t consider Libertarians. They believe in spirit the same fuck the poor economic message, and they wouldn’t ever call you a child molestor.

      They exist in a vacuum of delusional thinking. Seriously. Been there.

  • goonemeritus

    I wonder if there are numerically more Log Cabin Republicans then there are Evangelicals in the GOP?

    • Tony Alexander

      lol. i see what you did there!

    • SDGeoff

      There aren’t that many Log Cabin folk, but some are quite wealthy. One SoCal male couple (!) hosted a fundraiser for Ted Cruz not too long ago.

  • msanthropesmr

    So, are the Log Cabin Republicans in it for the grift? That’s what I got out of this article.

    • Callyson

      No different from the rest of the Republicans, then.

    • JMP

      It seems like about 80% of Republicans today – including their nominee for President – are just in it for the grift.

    • Latverian Diplomat

      The grift, and the the closet case seductions.

    • arglebargle

      The rubes have to run out of money to donate to all these fuckers at some point. That’s when we make our move.

    Even though we’re on opposite sides of the political aisle, I honestly wish you luck with this quest. Personally, I think it’s a lost cause, but good for you for standing up for yourself. Just watch your back…

    • msanthropesmr

    The GOP sold out to the so-called “Moral Majority” decades ago, Gregory. You’re up to your neck in the swamp, and decided now that you should try to paddle out? Good luck.

  • Latverian Diplomat

  • Ah, yes, the abused spouse in the GOP’s big tent. They are still surprised that the GOP is beating them.

  • limberrat

    Take back the Platform. Take back the Party.

    I deluded myself into believing it was possible to stop the Tea Party and that reason would take over the Republicans. I soon realized that the damage was done even before I was born. This has been a long time coming and can never be fixed. Hence one of the many reasons I left the Republican party!

    • SDGeoff

      Ditto. And I served on the board of a chapter of Log Cabin, many years ago. It was pure fantasy land.

  • Treg.Brown

    Sometimes it’s just hard to say, “It’s not me, it’s you” and leave a toxic relationship.

    Because I care enough to do the absolute least, my thoughts and prayers go out to you Log Cabin people.

  • Lance Thrustwell

    Gregangelo there actually said “you’re not going down without a fight!” Which suggests a kind of forced fellatio on the rest of the GOP. Which is perfectly apropos.

    I think there is a kind of subconscious awareness going on here. It fits perfectly with denial and self-loathing.

    • arglebargle

      Will there be throat cramming?

      • Beanz&Berryz

        I can just hear the throat cramming… argle.. bargle….

        • BigBoppa

          If you can still hear then it’s not crammed far enough yet.

      • SDGeoff

        Count on it.

      • Lance Thrustwell

        There will ALWAYS be throat cramming with these people.*

        *I mean Republicans generally, not just log cabiners.

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        They certainly hope so!

    • Treg.Brown

      Is there a wide stance I can take on this?

      • Lance Thrustwell

        You’re stalling.

        • Treg.Brown

          *tap tap tap*

  • Beanz&Berryz

    They should call themselves the Vichy Republicans… and they are shocked! SHOCKED! at what they have found in the Republican platform… Jesus H. M. F. Christ. The ONLY thing that makes a lick of sense in Gregory’s trip to Cleveland is that he’s got a friend going and they had really fun plans.

    Hating the Gheys is getting up there with hating abortion… which is getting hate for the Gheys up towards strict Republican dogma AND policy. These idiot fuckers are fucking idiots…

    • And blacks, and mexicans, and muslims, and women, and everything not Washingotnian in nature. Constitution literalness for the winz!

    • YoBunnyBunny

      Well, people do like to think themselves the exception to the rule, right…

  • Logic of Color

    So by legalizing gay behavior we are opening the door to, among other things, abortion. There are so many things wrong with this line of thought I don’t know where to start.

        They were made of tin when I was a wee lass. Hubs and his friends used to blow them up with firecrackers.

          As one does with syrup canisters.

        • BigBoppa

          That was back in the day when they still used real maple. Now you have to blow that shit up with the “syrup” still in the container cuz it’s not worth eating it.

  • RobKanC

    But if they close their eyes, hold their noses and tell themselves they are only fiscally conservative, they can still be good republicans. They can save a lot of money in taxes and when they are back in the closet they can save even more. It’s a win-win for them.

  • limberrat

  • anwisok

    Oh, Gregory, you poor, deluded man. You’re right, though – that’s not your Party. You’re not going to change it, so you should, maybe, find one that doesn’t want to crush you under force of law simply for being yourself.

    • gene108

      Gregory would find another party, but there are none that will (1) recognize his right to marriage and (2) not tax him into oblivion for free Obama phones and lobsters for poor people.

      He had to pick one or the other and he me made his choice.

      • anwisok

        He sounds like he may be reconsidering the appropriate balance, though.

    • msanthropesmr

      I will welcome a day when I am not surprised that somebody who is gay is also a total jackass.

  • gene108

    I get Log Cabin Republicans. Sure you might wanna marry your gay lover in the future, but the tax cuts Republicans enact are something you can have now.

  • NorthStarSpanx

    When I ask, “What is wrong with these guys,” I’m not even talking about the wingnut committee members setting out the planks in a cross shape to nail the immoral minority on.

  • IdRatherBeDancing

    That platform is very scary. Aside from the anti-gay planks, it seems to ignore the First Amendment of the Constitution in the whole God’s law dictating the legislative process and Bible teaching in schools. The party platform is laughable.

    • msanthropesmr

      It would be laughable if we couldn’t guarantee that at least 40% of the American people wouldn’t vote for it. :C

      • IdRatherBeDancing

        True that. Has Tony Perkins’ face moved into most punchable territory yet?

      • Biff52

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …with the level of self hate being spewed from the “Log Cabin Republicans” I’m surprised they didn’t shoot Pulse up first

  • ViveLaRes

    Sounds like someone forgot to make reservations in Cleveland and just found out the $85K AirBnB thing is all that’s left.

    • Biff52

      I hope they don’t find out how Evan’s doing it! Maybe they should try Craigslist.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    By the reasoning of a Log Cabin Republican –
    You know what? I can’t even finish this analogy because there ain’t no reasoning in it.

  • Belasaurius

    well they can take the money they save from tax cuts and use it on lawyers fees after their fellow GOPs re-criminalize homosexuality. 10 out of 10 for planning, minus several hundred million for long term outcomes

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Since I’m assuming (I think safely) that the only reason a gay man would belong to the Repuke party is for the tax cuts, I’m also assuming that if all of this bothers Gregory so much he can get to the shitshow in Cleveland Republican national convention on his own dime.

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      It is a vulture-y libertarian mentality…as long as I get my dolla dolla bills, then fuck everyone else.

  • IdRatherBeDancing

    Log Cabin homes are the most insufferable assholes. If you ask them how they possibly can be part of the GOP (hahah –as much as homo can be part of that shit club), they answer “I’m fiscally conservative” almost to a person. Yes, the same fiscally conservative principles that believes it is A-OK to even suggest defaulting on the USA debt, not to mention Reagan, Bush I and Bush II ran record deficits one more than the other. Fuck these self-hating morons.

    Several years ago at the North Halsted Street Fest, held every August in Chicago – I believe it’s the largest ‘street’ fest in the nation – The Log Cabin Repubs had a booth.

    I was shocked when I first heard about Log Cabin Republicans some decades ago. I was more shocked when Obama ran for President and I read the comments at a conservative gay blog.

    To a majority of Republicans, LGBT people are sinners that will burn in hell and no matter how they plead or point out how they agree with Republicans on other issues, the mindset won’t change.

      No doubt- I was stunned the first time I met a gay racist. I met my first gay Republican a few years later (a white guy against Democrats over health care). He tried to convince me it was better to vote Republican, yet couldn’t give me a straight answer as to how he could, given their views on homosexuality.

  • david spikes

    Gay republicans, black republicans, women republicans-yes, even poor republicans. Like so much of life, inexplicable. The party that encourages it’s members to despise other people is always going to attract people who do that, despite how much it conflicts with their actual needs. sheeeesh

    • UnsaltedSinnerinMotion

      I’d love to hear if any historian has looked into Jewish Nazis in the 1930s. I bet there were a handful.

      • Pinkham’s Law

        There were – sort of. What appears to be good info here, from Jewishmag.

        • cat cafe

          I think there were many Jews who couldn’t believe that they would be included in the anti-semitism–they were Germans first and foremost, prosperous department-store owners, artists, filmmakers, doctors, lawyers, and businessmen, and had lived there for generations, completely assimilated, and simply couldn’t fathom the depths of depravity to which the Nazis would sink, or that it would include them..

          Even today, with all we know from the Nazis, if a wild-eyed Mexican man, filthy and covered in blood, ran into your bank and screamed that they were shooting all the Mexicans out in the fields behind the town, and then a police officer shot him, and you knew you’d be shot too if you even suggested investigating, there’d be a lot of incentive to decide that it wasn’t true. That’s pretty much what it was like then, and incidents like this happened constantly. (Jewish woman somehow surviving the machine-gunning into a common grave, waiting till dark, then running into town, and no one even answering their door, let alone believing her.) There were numerous reports of the camps, and what was happening, and many, many Jews simply didn’t couldn’t bear to believe it. I can barely bear to think about it now.

          So I can certainly believe that German Jews might have chosen to join the Wehrmacht–and perhaps even the Nazi party (it wasn’t hardened into a murder-the-Jews party for quite a while). They might even have done it for the long con. My dad, who eventually escaped on the Kindertransport, had a best friend from school who joined the Luftwaffe, then flew one of the planes to Switzerland and escaped that way! Also, they couldn’t leave Germany–it was forbidden, and no one (thanks, USA) would take them in. So perhaps they thought this would be a way to survive.

          Certainly it took completely crazy people, like my great-aunt, to be able to observe all the way back in 1933 that Hitler was batshit crazy and to bag out of there to London while she could (where it was she, with her bullying craziness, who got my dad onto the last Kindertransport in 1939).

          It’s kind of different with these guys. The Republicans have made it crystal clear (sort of with a “crystal night,” if you will) how much they detest them and everything they are, and have enacted and supported hundreds of virulently anti-gay laws, and stand for anti-gay bigotry in everything they do, including their current, past, and constant platforms. For gay men to remain Republican means, as David says above, that they have to be hateful within themselves, self-loathing, and bigoted and misogynist over and above their own self-regard.

          • Pinkham’s Law

            I would never have known you were Jewish. You don’t look it in your avatar!

            More seriously, thanks for sharing. Has to be difficult to be rational about it, rather than letting emotion take over.

  • WomanInAMood

    Wouldn’t you think that these people would go libertarian?

    • Beanz&Berryz

      Ya, but there’s no there there, I think…

      • Bitter Scribe

        The “libertarian” (I am unable to type that word without adding quotes) stance on gay marriage, AFAICT, amounts to, “I don’t think the government should be in the business of recognizing or granting privileges to any married couples, straight or gay, so no gay marriage, please.”

        Which is either astoundingly naive (like about 99% of “libertarianism”) or a convenient and dishonest way to say “Eeeew, gay” without sounding like the bigot you are.

        • Beanz&Berryz

          I’m never quite sure where idealized Libertarian ideas end and actual Libertarian policies begin. It’s like Ayn Rand. You can be ideologically pure and don’t have to be clear about anything because nothing you say connects to any actual policy or legislation. Like Paul Ryan.

          • SuspectedDemocrat

            It is like Ayn Rand, you can try to suffer through it, but in the end all you get is a three hour monologue that doesn’t say anything.

        • Angela Ruzzo

          This is practically the only libertarian stance I agree with. I think marriage should be a private contract between individuals, and the government should get out of the marriage business.

          • Except that there are a shitton of legal and financial things tied up in marriage that necessarily involve government. Registering one’s domestic contract with the government ensures that all of that stuff happens seamlessly, which is very useful in cases of death, divorce, child custody, power of attorney, etc. Heck, even taxes are easier this way.

            The only problem with it historically is that it’s been framed as a civic interest in that married folks tend to live in the same place longer, have more investment in their communities (mortgages, school funding, etc.) which builds stronger public networks overall. That framing tends to favor traditional marriages over other kinds of committed domestic arrangements, so it’s easy for the God Squad to insist that government has an interest in limiting marriage only to those people likely to make their communities stronger by being homogeneous. Their logic is that allowing same-gender couples, single parents, poly families or any other non-traditional family arrangements to have the same legal status as Ozzie and Harriet will necessarily weaken the community overall simply by being different.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            But other contractual arrangements between two parties, such as mortgages, credit contracts, business contracts, car leases, also involve many complex legal and financial arrangements. Marriage should be simply another contractual arrangement between two people. People could enter into a marriage contract for X number of years, with automatic renewal unless one party wishes to end the contract. Not much different from pre-nups, actually.

  • Biff52

    There’s already been an anniversary of the Orlando killings? Where does the time go?

        Then we need to use the entirely made up term “monthiversary”, because the root of “anniversary” is “annum”, Latin for “year”.

    Why are there gay Repubs you ask? LCRs are primarily rich gay white dudes. They pulled themselves up by their bootstraps and *overcame oppression* without any help from the government! Being white and male and rich had nothing to do with it. (Full disclosure: I am a rich gay white dude.)

    • Momofpeanutty

      Rich gay white liberal dude? I’m sure I can scrape up,a cousin or two for you to meet….

  • Log Cabin Repugs about as clueless as Jews for Nazis.

    • cat cafe

      Right? I mean, there probably were a few Jews who were all “well, now, maybe we DO need a strong leader,” but they went to the gas just as quick as the rest of our families.

    LOG CABINERS: “Don’t hate us cuz we’re gay! Love us cuz we’re just as petty, greedy, isolationist, nationalist, ladybrainz-hating, supremacist-whatever, self-loathing, science-denying, selfish, soulless bastards as you!!”

    See there? They DO have something in common, the conservative gays and conservatives ungays. They’re both toxic to humanity, HOORAYS!!

  • Blender_415

    As with everything the modern GOP does, I smell grift. It’s something they all agree on, even the ghey ones.

  • Honestly, it’s just racism and misogyny, which are unfortunately rampant even outside of the LCRs. Some of the nastiest sexism I’ve ever seen has come from gay men. Same root as sexism among straight guys–toxic masculinity and the abject fear of being beat to shit for not being manly enough–but with the added oomph of believing that women are entirely unnecessary. Bleh.

    • cat cafe

      You are absolutely right. the gay men I’m friendly with are the nicest, most sensitive, interesting guys, but boy howdy, some of those other gay men are just vile. They truly hate women. And these guys apparently hate teh blacks too. They’re just so pathetic.

  • Brother Yam

    Or does your log cabin just not have any windows?

    No, but it has a back door…

    • Shartiblartfat

      You, Brother Yam, may well have won the Internet today!

  • At least as Democrats we have James “Aunt Fancy” Buchanan.

    “It is the party that has repeatedly compared your desire to marry the person you love to someone wanting to screw a dog.”

    In all fairness, who among us hasn’t been propositioned by a dog at least once?

      I let them hump my leg but we don’t cuddle afterwards, so it’s not bestiality

    “Ever since I was a child, I always knew I was a little bit different.”

    “You mean, your sexuality, right?”

    “No! I liked tax cuts soooo much, I couldn’t stop thinking about them!”

  • redarmyzombie

    In all seriousness, I’d take Groucho Marx over a self-loathing log cabin republican any day of the week…

  • WampusKat

    Um… you forgot to mention Ted Cruz and Co. at the “Kill the Gays” Tea Party hoedown. Apparently the Log Cabin does not come with cable, otherwise they might have noticed Maddow jumping up and down about it on MSNBC:

    There’s also the matter of the GOP’s “religious freedom” to discriminate legislation, but God forbid, do not mention any of this to Cabin dwellers because “you are wude and blocked” for mentioning such things in public (or via private email). I believe these people have a death wish. Far be it from me to continue to stand in their way.

    • cynmac

      The Log Cabin Republicans were founded in CA in 1977, when Reagan, then Governator, wanted to ban gays from teaching in public schools. Wow, since then they’ve been soooo effective, eh? That issue is quaint compared with how the GOP has proceeded.

    I’m sure someone has made this joke, but “Its because they put the logs in the…” I can’t even finish.

  • Vegan and Tiara

    This dipshit: https://www.datalounge.com/dl-news-archive?article=2363
    was outed by his own party in 1997. They made his life a living hell, so naturally he saw the light, and became a Democrat. Ha ha…just kidding, the stupid fuck is a Log Cabin Republican. What a moron.

  • Jgb979

    Even in 1992, when the honestly genuinely sane poppy Bush was the head of the Pubs, log cabin republicans were absolutely ridiculous.

    It’s like a black person saying “well the Klan may want to murder me because of my skin color, but I sure admire their commitment to clean linens!”

  • hvdv

    These poor things! Or maybe not. What exactly will they do with the many many pennies (?) scraped together by upset and upwardly mobile homos? Buy a candidate? What do you want munniez for, deluded gheys? Sad!

  • They’re also upset that Aaron Shock won’t be there.

  • pixeloid

    If you’re not a wealthy, native-born, disability-free, white, “Christian”, heterosexual male, voting Republican is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

    • Sakonyachen

      Well that would make twice that a bird supported a Sanders!

      FEEL THE BERN!!!

      I rolled my eyes so hard I saw my brain?

    Sorry, they still hate you, but they will take your gay Ameros…

    There may be a lack of windows, but I have a feeling there is a lot more ‘back door’ action in that Party than they would care to admit.

  • Sakonyachen

    “you’re not going down without a fight!”

    Starting to think strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is a basis for a system of government.

  • Martin L

    Just like self hating Jewish and black Republicans (all 15 of them), Log Cabin Republicans continue to delude themselves into supporting a party that totally despises them.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      I don’t think it’s self hate. I think it’s all about the $$$$. Their wealth and privilege insulates them from the consequences of ant- (LGBT, woman, poor, non white, non Christian) legislation. Maintaining their wealth comes before anything else. They think the White Male “Hetero” Christian party members view them as the “right kind” of queer, or woman, or black (other non-white) people and not “one of those” that their party is oppressing.

  • Gayer Than Thou

    Log Closet Republicans are all …

  • King Beauregard

    The one thing I can guess about the Log Cabins is, they have that primate instinct for a strict societal structure as many Republicans do, so they’d rather be the lowest of the low in the Republicans’ world than not be part of any regimented society at all.

  • cutter

    Log Cabin Reps are over 98% white and are concerned only about their wealth being protected. No interest in helping homeless LGBT youth, ending employment discrimination etc. My LCReps couldn’t care less about the movement.

  • Be Gin

    When the GOP Platform Committee stuck it to the Log Cabin Republicans I thought there might be some time for introspection by these poor souls. Perhaps a little soul searching and reflection upon self-delusional fantasies.

    But instead they start fund raising for the very people who hate them most.

    I’m no shrink but I think it is safe to advance an amateur’s diagnosis: Incurable Meshuga Syndrome!

  • middleclassman1

    Is a gay Republican an oxymoron or just a plain old moron?

  • Zyxomma

    Asking for money? Aren’t the Log Cabin Republicans Republican because they’re rich, and want to keep all their money? Pay your own way, Gregory T. Angelo, and I hope you’re treated exactly the way you deserve to be.
