rom Campus Reform, "Colorado Democrat fires gay aide allegedly for visiting Republican office": Tyler Drum, a 21-year-old homosexual aide to Democrat state Senator Irene Aguilar (photo), was fired on the spot from his position in the Colorado Senate because he allegedly visited the office of a fellow college aide who happens to work for a Republican. Drum, a 2013 graduate of Colorado State University, told Campus Reform that Aguilar did not explain why he had been fired.  “I thought this would happen on the Republican side, now I’m a disenchanted Democrat.” Tweet This “She just said leadership was uncomfortable with me befriending Republicans,” Drum said. Drum, who is a registered Democrat, is disappointed in his firing. “I thought this would happen on the Republican side, now I’m a disenchanted Democrat,” he said.

Radical, talk about intolerance and bigotry. I guess that democrat office is the most intolerant office in the US? Or are they all like that?

That’s the way Dems are- at least the Dems I know. Very intolerant of people with different viewpoints. And each group that they supposedly tolerate is expected to hew to stereotypes (gays are supposed to be flamboyant, black people soulful, etc)

The party of tolerance is every intolerant

Sounds like the case for employment discrimination lawsuit.

Here gays are specially protected from job and housing discrimination under the term ‘orientation’

It’s much easier for a gay to come out to a Republican, than it is for a gay to come out as a Republican to other gays.

Unbelievable how completely brain dead most liberals are. Liberals love to portray themselves as the bright ones, yet the fact is that Liberals are among the dumbest among us. Really, I am always astonished at how dumb these people are.

The low-information voter? Who is that, by and large? A Democrat. Really, Democrats need government to order their lives. Democrats need someone to help them think and make decisions, that's why they love having the government make the decisions in their lives.

In general, Republicans are self sufficient and independent. They want to be left alone, without interference.

Democrats need the government to help them live their lives. Democrats are weak-minded and need government help making decisions and protecting them from themselves.

This is the reason the country is so divided. Republicans are strong and don't need government. Democrats, devoid of spiritual moorings, are increasingly weak minded and helpless clamoring ever louder for help running their lives by the government.

Did the Republican get fired for associating with a Homosexual Democrat?

I think not.

Otherwise we would have heard about it!

“the Democratic Leadership was uncomfortable with [his] friendship with [the Republican aide].”

A Democrat congresswoman is more concerned about the political security implications of one of her aides talking to a Republican staffer, than Democrats are about the NATIONAL security implications of people with Muslim Brotherhood connections being in the Administration.

The most vile, hateful, bitter, deceitful, venomous, angry, vicious, backstabbing, enraged people I have ever met were dems.

These traits came out when trying to discuss Republicans. Their anger was actually breathtaking - my sister is included in this group of people!!! (We have no contact now.)

It was astonishing how much they hate Republicans and how they projected their own traits on people they didn’t even know.

If I were in politics and a republican, I wouldn’t want my staff being on “friendly” terms with democratic staffers. You can’t trust Democrats or their minions.
Haven’t you observed how backstabbing they are in national politics??
