The GOPs Complicity in the Spread of Gay Marriage
Crisis Magazine ^ | March 21, 2013 | George Neumayr

portman-cnn-gay-marriage

Proponents of gay marriage, as they eagerly anticipate the Supreme Court’s examination of the issue next week, are chortling over recent polls that suggest the American public’s resistance to it is fast eroding. They pointed this week to a Washington Post-ABC News poll in which 58 percent of Americans support gay marriage and 37 percent oppose it. This is an almost exact reversal from a decade ago, they say, when polls then showed 55 percent of Americans opposed gay marriage and 37 percent supported it.

Meanwhile, establishment Republicans, who have always been ambivalent about the issue, appear ready to wave the white flag. “Quite literally, the opposition to gay marriage is dying off,” claims columnist George Will. Columnist Michael Barone reports that “at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a panel sponsored by the Competitive Enterprise Institute drew a large and approving crowd for a discussion labeled ‘A Rainbow on the Right: Growing the Coalition, Bringing Tolerance Out of the Closet.’”

All of this holds great propaganda value for the Left, which always seeks to topple a taboo by emphasizing the “inevitability” of its elimination. The name of the game is to fool ordinary Americans into thinking that resistance is futile. Never mind that 30 states have managed to ban this “inevitable” change.

Yet it is true that the gay-marriage drive is picking up speed, even if that is overstated for propagandistic purposes. Why is this happening? Because of the intensity of the media and the Democrats? That is one reason. Another reason for it, which gets much less attention, is the weakness if not outright treachery of the Republicans.

The problem isn’t just that Republicans lack the courage of their convictions on gay marriage. The problem is that they don’t have any convictions—or hold the wrong ones. Recall that prominent Republicans, such as Dick Cheney and Laura Bush, endorsed gay marriage long before Obama and the Clintons did. It wasn’t until this week that Hillary Clinton formally announced her support for nationalized gay marriage.

“What was once a front-and-center issue for rank-and-file Republicans—the subject of many hotly worded House and Senate floor speeches—is virtually a dead issue,” Politico has reported.

Mitt Romney, the GOP’s presidential nominee last year, couldn’t even bring himself to defend Chick-fil-A against Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who said the restaurant’s opposition to gay marriage made it contrary to “Chicago values” and thus unworthy of a city permit. Romney didn’t bring the issue of gay marriage up a single time in any of the debates and generally made comments indistinguishable from Obama’s on gay rights (Romney endorsed gay adoption and told his campaign to remain mute on the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell).

This week, Rob Portman, one of Romney’s closest advisers and near-running mate (he almost selected him to be his vice presidential nominee but chose Paul Ryan instead), came out in support of gay marriage, citing his gay son whom he wishes to “have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister.”

According to Politico, Portman will pay almost no political price for this endorsement because the Republican leadership class agrees with him. Politico titled its story, “GOP elite embraces Portman gay marriage switch,” reporting: “The reality Portman’s flip-flop exposed is this: among the Republican political community, the people who actually run campaigns and operate super PACs, support for gay marriage is almost certainly a solid majority position. Among strategists born after the end of the Vietnam War, it’s not even a close call.”

Support for gay marriage within this influential GOP circle is so uncontroversial that in February, according to Politico, “a throng of top Republican politicos signed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to support a constitutional right to gay marriage. Among them were a half-dozen senior aides to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign…”

Members of the Beltway GOP elite have been cynically manipulating social conservatives for years, seeking their votes while snickering at their views. They have long pretended to care about abortion and gay marriage, even as they undercut social conservatives at every turn and pushed the “Big Tent.”

Almost a decade ago social conservatives could barely convince George W. Bush’s White House to issue a proclamation in favor of marriage during “Marriage Protection Week.” One activist said: “Our leaders had to call the White House and say, ‘You won’t even do this?’” Bush strategist Karl Rove saw get-out-the-vote value in the issue, but nothing else. It came out later that the head of Bush’s 2004 reelection effort, Ken Mehlman, was gay. Mehlman went on to lobby for passage of gay marriage in New York state, persuading a handful of undecided GOP state senators to provide the clinching support for the bill.

At the political level, the culture war has been hopelessly one-sided, with Republicans secretly and now not-so-secretly fighting alongside the Democrats on many critical fronts. As on the issue of women in combat—for which GOP capitulations during the Bush years paved the way—gay marriage is spreading not in spite of the Republicans but because of them.

So many GOP-er’s are revealing themselves either as allies in this deviancy, or cowards by their silence. Just like Romney’s unbelievably pathetic response to that reporter’s question during the Chick-Fil-A protest. Impossible to have any respect for such craven “leaders.”

I fully support gay marriage. Not because I think it is good, right, or based on anything other than narcissistic wants.

I support gay marriage because of divorce.

When a marriage ends and the lawyers get involved you find out all kinds of things about the relationship.

I can not wait till a marriage involving money gets going.....

We will discover that gays/lebs/trans-genders are totally f**ked up people with bizarre sexual practices.

I can not wait to find out how much infidelity,selfish, and childish these totally narcissistic individuals they are. GAY MARRIAGE = DIVORCE

In 2010 Palin endorsed Joe Miller, won the Alaska Senate primary and Murkowski left the GOP and ran as an independent, the Senate republicans came out and announced that the people of Alaska would be forgiven if they backed Murkowski, she paid no price for leaving the party and running against it.

Here is the problem -- once the democrat party went down the tubes, the GOP wasn't any different. Party elites -- think atheist Karl Rove -- really only care about fiscal issues. The party planked up social issues, however, because in the past social and fiscal conservatism went hand in hand within the American populace, and they wanted to corner the market on rightwing voters completely.

However, they've been working behind the scenes the whole time to gradually divorce social conservatism from the party. Their machiniations are coming to fruition, with this recent trend of fiscally conservative-ish, but socially totally liberal, republican candidates. They think that social conservatism is dead, they don't need us anymore, to they're dumping us out of the party because in truth they never wanted us anyway.

IMHO.

Very few gays are going to get married....that is not the point. The point is to make the gay lifestyle to be considered on par with heterosexual lifestyles, and to destroy what gays refer to as “heteronormative society.”

The old line influential republicans and the ranks of high level republican politicians have their share of homosexuals too.

And in those circles allegiance to the Old Boys Club is usually stronger than ethics, morals or campaign promises.

They are not telling the truth. Resistance to Gay Marriage is not eroding, not at all. Those who think still oppose it. Marriage was created by people to insure that children had a home with a man and a women. It was and is nothing else. For sexual perverts to distort the facts to provide for them to pretend to be married is a further perversion. There is no such thing as gay marriage or could there ever be. No matter how many politicians proclaim it, it will never be.

People may believe anything they want regarding Gay marriage but believing they can change it is as foolish as believing the sun won’t come up in the morning.

This country is in the midst of some radical changes. Some are important some are of the world changing variety, and some are insignificant and some are WITHGAS. It is the first I worry about. AND NO OTHERS. We can deal with those concerns after we get control of the Senate.

I am concerned that we have no ability to prioritize.

Yell, scream, call me names and kick off FR. But you ain’t gonna change reality

Gay Marriage

Unless I'm missing something, I'm completely aware of God's endorsement of the Holy Matrimony of sodomites.

If indeed that is the case, the screaming brown-short liberals are violating one of their own most sacrosanct progressive tenets..."The Separation of Church and State".

I don’t know what the relevance of your post is to this thread, but it isn’t true that Gingrich endorsed Murkowski in her run as an independent.

“Gingrich also lashed out at Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski for trying to get re-elected as a write-in candidate. He said Murkowski should cede to Joe Miller, and, that the time for running as an independent has long since passed.

“I would say Senator Murkowski is fundamentally cheating,” Gingrich said in a speech to the Values Voter Summit on Saturday.

“The establishment is in such a state of shock,” Gingrich said.”

Actually, I have often wondered if they do divorce. Or, if they just part ways and find someone else to “marry”. It is not like they take marriage (real marriage) seriously.

That is why "libertarian" is becoming the catch phrase, it finally gives them the ability to embrace the left, but with a much cooler sounding vocabulary, for instance, gay marriage and abortion as values of the "founding fathers" and the constitution.

“Do you like where the party is headed? I don’t.”

I am not in love with where we, as a party, stand currently but it has taken 40 years or more to get here. Only a fool would expect we can completely reverse in one election cycle. In fact, don’t take offense, but, IMHO, doing so is counter productive. Everybody has a pet position that in some ways agrees with one of the liberal views. Taken all together this means that a radical shift back to the past is untenable to a large number of voters.

Sarah Palin opened the eyes of a number of RINOs. As have Ron Paul, Mario Rubio, et al. Lets continue the movement and see what happens.

BTW, a solid indication of my views can be seen by whom we have put up against the 0 in the last 2 elections.

I’m not happy about the direction either. But I don’t see how we get to where we want to go by capitulating on crucial policy issues. Perhaps you see marriage as a hobby horse of the busybody housewives, but to me, its crucial to western society as a whole. Our choices really are the Christian lifestyle or sharia and if we reject the former we will get the latter - imposed on us by force.

Liberalism weakens us as a nation. Surely you and I both see it - collaborating with liberalism will not earn us that which we desire.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Within days of the Massachusetts gay marriage law the homosexual curriculum was in the government schools....and....parents have ( according the courts) absolutely no right to object to it or be notified. The curriculum was prepackaged and “ready, set, go” for the schools. The same will happen in other states as well.

this is a lesson for all those so called republicans, talking heads on radio etc.
They never wanted to mention social issues, they wanted to listen to the liberals and the media and play it safe and while they did that the homosexuals took a hold of the media, the teachers, the schools and infiltrated our party.

Many on our side could have fought this, spoke up to family, neighbors, talk radio could have mentioned this much more, , instead we let the liberal-tarians and the liberals come to our platforms, use our primaries, let them run with an R at the end of their name.

If 9 people in DC is going to tell tens of millions of ovters that their votes do not count now and that we should ignore the first amendment and ignore the basic reason why this country was founded on religion then we might as well have states leave this union so they can carry on the dream of the founders.

Communists wanted this decades ago and for any one on here staying silent on this issue and thinking they had better not say anything because they might be banned then have a word with yourself, you support the communist way of thinking, you;re not a republicans nor a conservative.
You are a social communist and helping their left wing radical agenda to ruin America.

I donp;t anyway support re defining marriage because once it has then all sorts of marriage can be brought forward and every argument whether love etc by the communists yuse can be used for any kind of marriage.

Plus while some might think this is no big deal then think about the children who will now be adopted, be taken to the freak parades, see two men living with each other, hilding each other, kissing each other, in bed with each other and be surrounded by immature perverted men and just how many boys now will be touched and raped?

You support homosexual not gay marriage because of divorce, really????????????????

We’ve already seen in MA how the first amendment has gone away, how many lawsuits will be brought to others who refuse to marry them who refuse to do any services to them, how many adoption agencies will be sued like Catholic charties.

would think that you woudl hahe thought a little more about this than just divorce and thought about the steps of a bigger agenda and the poor kids futures

If my sons ever came home and tld me that they;re homsoexuals I would tell them right away about the feces they are having sex wiht, the diseases, the anal cancer, where the prostate is the colon is, what damge to the body can be a result, the life made shorter, the diseases etc.

I know thta they will not because I brought them up telling them about the dangers of the left wing communist agenda’s and I took time with my boys to raise them right.

He Portman is nothing but a pansy looking guy anyway and while he and others like him think that this might be cool or a way to get votes then he is wrong.
I hope he now is a masive target for the next election and he gets booted out and those elitist types in DC had batter wake up because their power will end when tens of millions who voted on this issue already will not vote for them.

9 judges will tell the country that their first amendment right will be taken away, the religious freedom, will churches then be sued, will adoptions agencies be sued, will people now be forced to marry these people and they can now get kids?

These 9 judges will now tell tens of millions of voters that their vote does not count, that all the millions spent was a waste and all the work done was for nothing because of these 9 people and a bunch of idiots in the GOP who never wanted to speak up and defend the future of the first amendment , the future of this country and fight against a communist agenda which was written about in 63.

Talk radio, the GOP talking heads always wanted to play it safe and talk debt, health care, fiscal policy but neevr social issues which are the backbone of this country and the future of this country.

They are as much to blame like the lieks of Hannity, Rove, Perino, Noonan, Hume, Krauthammer, Hoover, and who the hell does Mccain his daughter think she is to tell us that we have to change to suit her.

As for we livein in a different times, so shoudl we now allow polygamy, hey this is the 21st after all, shall we get rid of the age of consent and also teach 5 years olds about feces sex?

What a cop out they use , about moving forward

I will neevr accept that sham marriage and will not shut up about it to anyone to their face either if the issue is spoken

I couldn;t carless about RINos or talk radio who shy away form this issue because they don;t want to upset their liberal, communist pals or won;t be invited to the elitist cocktail parties in DC or the north east.

We are talking about children who wold be taken by these homsoexuals, be raised on their homes, be tooktot heir freak parades and be brought up in a messed up way.
My wife has worked with children for years , most of her life and stated ot me that the kids she met who were or are being raised by homosexuals up in MA at that time she worked there all had mental issues and all seeked attention

exactly and lets not forget how in MA they taught young children feces sex, fisting, and reading books how a boy loves another boy.
Tehn they went ater Catholic charties who my wife was adopted out by .
They were sued and were then forced to close down adoptions.
Those two homosexual women coudl have gione to another adoption agency but went to the Catholic charties to close them down.

Hannity and other ignored all of this.
Our side who are RINO’s elitist establishment and others never said a word because they;re cowards.

If anyone on here or readin this thinks feces sex is good enough to be married, to adopt children, to then teach fisting in the schools, to force the first amendment to be closed down and be rid of and then not see where this agenda is really going ,like age of consent then they are the msot stupid ignorant people, head i sand idiots this country has produced

Oh and as for Hoover and MCain’s daughter, PISS OFF

I can't for the life of me see why they'd start changing to positions that are even popular with a huge percentage of those who call themselves “Evangelicals” just to get votes.

It's not like the worst President in American history ran for a second term and Conservatives didn't even turn out in enough numbers to defeat the worst President in history who just happens to have fathered BarryCare.

If Conservatives are happy with, “a pox on both their houses” they need to expect to get the pox themselves since there are, after all, only two houses.

JMHO

A poster who has since been zotted told me that Christians in the South want a theocracy, but since their votes are needed, they can’t be completely dispensed with.

That kind of bald honesty coming from the moderate-liberal GOP-E is rare, but it goes to show you how they are thinking. They still need us, and they’ll throw a few crumbs our way for the duration. But as soon as they THINK they can get enough minority/queer votes, we’ll be kicked in the teeth.

I’m not waiting around for it.

I have about 40 years left and my kids longer, my grand kids even longer when theyr;e born and to think they will grow up in a place which was called the Bible belt will now be the homo country is sickening.

They look down on the south, they need us like you said it take for us granted, hence Romney.

Here is my county and how it voted and it;s not a small county either .

http://enrnow.votesjc.com/FL/St_Johns/42920/112743/en/md.html?cid=0103

Now we never got a visit by any republicans evenLaura Bush came here eyars ago.

On my way back from town St Augustinewe saw tons of police and SS.
I pulled over by the airport and saw a cop I know , good guy he is.
Asked what was going on in town and he pointed to the plane of the VP and I said Biden ie here why.

He laughed and I said why woudl they come here, it;s a republican county so much so that we outnumber Dems and non party combined.

He laughed and said that there was a couple of hundred in a small school gym and all the cops he knew thought it was strange for him to come ehre.

The GOP take us for granted and think we only care about fiscal policy and if that were the case I;d join the liberal=tarian party.

Then they wonder why so many here want to leave the union and even some talking about it today down at the horse pasture.
There are so many fed up of social issues being ignored by talk radio, the elitist GOP establishment

I am not giving any more money to the Republican Party but will only give to certain pacs that support conservative causes such as pro-life, pro-family, anti illegal alien amnesty, pro gun rights, pro states rights and pro tax payer. When you put all those things together, then you get conservatism.

The several states that voted in gay “marriage” this time were benefitting from the many millions of true conservatives who did not vote this time. Millions of conservatives did not vote because they did not like Romney because he wasn’t a true conservative, four years previous millions of conservatives did not vote for McCain. There were fewer voters who came out for Romney than came out for McCain and there were fewer voters who came out for McCain than voted for Bush. Conservatives are becoming more disillusioned with fake Republicans. The Democrats had their machine going at full speed since it was a presidential election and the conservatives stayed home because they did not like their candidate. That is why gay marriage was voted in in several states.

Good for you. More people here need to follow your example.

I do not know what is wrong with so many so called conservatives. Time after time, day after day the GOP does everything but launch a billboard campaign saying “FU” to the traditional GOP base.

And yet, no matter what...gay capitulation, energy/landuse issues, 2nd amendment issues, abortion...we can’t even get a UN approved ‘strongly worded letter’ out of these jackasses. A

Yet we see post after post from supposed ‘conservatives having a fit that some of us refuse to keep empowering that.

You know what we need less of? Turncoat conservative voters who care more about their personal issues than their country.

Gays ARE trying to change reality. Thousand of years of human tradition thrown out the window because of a slick media campaign. Remember the novel “1984”—two and two make five, two and two make five. It is about incessant propagands breaking down people’s sense of reality.
