Top U.S. Republicans call for Michigan GOP committeeman to resign
upi.com ^ | 01/25/2014 | n/a

Posted on 01/25/2014 8:22:15 PM PST by massmike

Top Republicans joined the call for the resignation of Michigan Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema over comments he made seen as insensitive to gays.

At the close of the Republican National Committee's three-day winter meeting Friday, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and state Party Chairman Bobby Schostak told the Detroit Free Press they want Agema to resign after a controversial speech in December at a party meeting in Berrien County.

"Folks, [homosexuals] want free medical because they're dying between 38 and 44 years old," Agema told the gathering. "It's a biggie. So, to me it's a moral issue. It's a biblical issue. Traditional marriage is where it should be and that is in our platform, so people that are opposed on that issue within our party are wrong."

And their problem with him is? Oops, I forgot, he spoke the truth, at least the truth he would have been permitted to utter before the 1990s.

I guess there's just one political party left in the United States, despite the names. There's just the Corporate Statists (GOP), and the Government Statists (Democrats). Both are totalitarians who care nothing of free speech or the right to keep and bear arms. They are for the destruction of the family as a building block of society via homosexuality, abortion, and government meddling.

I miss America. Don't y'all?

Those 20 votes we might lose from the Log Cabin Republicans if this isn’t handled well could make all the difference in 2014!

I don’t think the GOP-e would particularly mind becoming extinct so long as Democrat policies continue.

Speaking truth about queers will get one in “trouble” every time.

Freedom lovers should be taboo breakers. Speak truth to power about queers, baby killers, Poverty, race baiting, God mocking, etc.

Well, isn’t it nice to see that the RNC really manned up on this one? That little back bone stiffened right up when a politically incorrect statement was made. I bet their waiting right now to be kissed by the Democrats they so admired. I hope he tells them to pound sand - or better concrete.

Resign? For stating the truth?

My gosh, I sometimes think it’s become impossible for my opinion of the GOP to sink any further, but they constantly find a way to make it happen. The sheer cowardice of Priebus here... the bowing down to deviants with their leftist agenda...

The Republican Party used to stand for family values!! A very big reason it gained my support and allegiance all those years ago. Now it’s become all but a partner to the Dems in America’s cultural descent into abject degeneracy. Damn Priebus and the GOP to hell!

Why did Terri Lynn Land change her mind?

I doubt the big money donors were going to switch a more conservative candidate.

I think it’s time that we had a national discussion on sodomy.

Sodomy is what makes homosexuals different than normal people.

While we’re at it, we should have an open discussion on AIDS. How did it come to America, how did it spread to rapidly? Let’s also talk about the innocent victims of AIDS: Ryan White and Arthur Ashe. If it wasn’t for sodomy, they would be alive today.

How much is it costing the country each year to treat AIDS “victims,” who caught the disease after sodomizing someone?

This is a case of pure pandering to liberals. Its not even a new story, its just a new push.

The RNC cannot abide having someone in their exclusive club who was sent by the tea party. Worse yet sending him there pushed out their pet RINOs.

Agreed - it's pretty telling that GOPe/RNC types find the truth to be anathema to "their" Party.

I’m not a fan of 3rd parties but we’re running out of options. The RNC is the policy making structure within the GOP and they obviously want to be a second liberal party.

Dave Agema has done more than tell the truth about homosexuality, that’s just their excuse. His real crime against them was telling the truth about them. He recently said that they write a party platform that they have no intention of sticking to. They write it to suck voters in and that’s it.

Third parties might be viable at State levels - it will take some doing to make them viable at Congressional/Senate/Presidential levels. The way I look at it, we have to stop being as focused on the symptoms of the sickness that is destroying Freedom and start whittling away at the causes by using every opportunity to elect good folks at any level possible. It will take a long time before we reap any big benefits, but the socialists have gotten themselves and their programs so entrenched that just slowing them down can be counted as a small victory and another step towards where we want to go. It would be nice to have a real conservative blast his/her way into the WH, but the table is so slanted towards a POS like Obama that it would be a shocker. Hopefully it's not too late to start jacking up the table to level it out and get it leaning in our favor.

Pandering to Liberals and every other deviant group as the 'gay' lifestyle will go mainstream after Hillary is outed as a lesbian or bi, which she will not deny, thus giving her another 'victim status' to hide behind.

A pretty sizable number of the RNC twitter followers are unabashed liberals cheering them on. Those liberals have no intent on voting republican.

Maybe I missed it, but I didn’t see names. What “top U.S. Republicans” are calling on Dave Agema to resign? Do I think some Republicans have been co-opted by the homosexual “equality” movement? Most definitely.

I will never, ever knowingly vote for any Republican who acts as though homosexuality is normal, natural, or on par with heterosexuality. It’s not, and if I have to explain why, I might as well try explaining why water is wet.

BTW, tolerance is not the same thing as acceptance. Tolerance is an American ideal. We respect the liberty of people to do things we don’t agree with, and we rightly expect that respect in return. That is where this gay rights movement crosses the line, and that is why they must be fought. They are statists, and they intend to use the state to squash dissent.

“...a politically incorrect statement was made.”

A politically incorrect but factual statement was made. AIDS treatments are very expensive. Isn’t it funny (strange) how the left requires cigarette smokers to pay more for insurance (under Obamacare), but treats practitioners of anal sodomy as though they have no greater health risks than heterosexuals? That makes as much sense as saying second hand cigarette smoke will kill you, but getting baked smoking pot every day is perfectly fine.
