  • Log Cabin Republicans: We’re In Contact With Trump Transition Team, Will Protect LGBT Rights

    11/11/2016 11:16:56 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 43 replies
    In a fundraising email to supporters Thursday night, Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory T. Angelo (above) claimed his group — and only his group — can save the LGBT community from President-elect Donald Trump. Trump has pledged to repeal all of President Barack Obama’s executive orders, including those protecting LGBT people. He’s vowed to appoint right-wing Supreme Court justices who could at least partially overturn marriage equality and said he’d sign the horrific anti-LGBT “First Amendment Defense Act.” Both Trump’s transition team and his leaked list of potential cabinet appointees are packed with anti-LGBT extremists in the mold of Vice...

    "They're just like us, only different". No, you and I don't customarily put up photos of naked children at our "parties:" The background to Milo's speech at his political get-together tacitly announces that the Log Cabin Republicans have normalized the exploitation of America's children.youtube.com/watch?v=i05eXluAQ18 Breitbart is featuring coverage of the Daily Show crew "clicking" bystanders recording they themselves conducting "interviews", so the bystanders could later compare their video with the Daily Show report for unfair editing.

  • Log Cabin Republicans irate over party’s platform

    If Donald Trump was hoping for GOP unity leading into next week’s convention, there’s a ways to go. In addition to the last breaths of the #NeverTrump movement, the Log Cabin Republicans are denouncing recent developments for the party’s 2016 platform, calling it “the most anti-LGBT platform in the party’s 162-year history.” The organization, which represents LGBT conservatives, issued a letter from its president decrying the platform’s changes, which have been reported as “a rightward lurch even from the party’s” 2012 positions. “Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of ‘pray the gay...

    NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland, March 3, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) -- As the Conservative Political Action Conference got underway Thursday, they faced strong criticism for welcoming a Republican homosexual activist group as a sponsor for the first time. The Log Cabin Republicans state on their website that their group exists solely to “make the Republican Party more inclusive, particularly on gay and lesbian issues.” “Working from inside the Party—educating other Republicans about gay and lesbian issues—is the most effective way to gain new Republican allies for equality,” the group’s website states. “We believe equality for LGBT Americans is in the finest tradition...

    WILDWOOD • Call it a case of cabin fever. A historic log cabin in Wildwood has gone missing, and St. Louis County Police are investigating. Sometime between Nov. 24 and 29, someone disassembled and carted off the pieces of the cabin off Highway 109 just south of Eatherton Road in Wildwood. The family who owned it had planned to donate the cabin to the city for use as a historic attraction. St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman said the cabin could barely be seen from the highway. "It’s pretty secluded, where, if nobody’s paying attention, you can probably get...

      Jim Alcorn/Special to The Record   When "Something Rotten!" actor Aaron Kaburick and stage manager Patrick Wetzel aren't at Broadway's St. James Theatre or their Manhattan residence, chances are they're enjoying their log cabin on West Milford's Pinecliff Lake. From the neon lights of Broadway and their work on the new musical "Something Rotten!" to the serenity of West Milford's Pinecliff Lake, where the only illumination comes from the stars, two Manhattan renters couldn't come up with a more different setting for their first home.  But that is what Aaron Kaburick and Patrick Wetzel wanted in a getaway home. ...

    The two-term chairman of the Minnesota College Republicans on Wednesday became the latest from his party to support legalizing gay marriage in the state. Ryan Lyk told The Associated Press he wants people to know that not just Democrats support gay marriage. He released a statement of support in conjunction with Minnesotans United, the political group pursuing a gay marriage bill that could get a vote later this spring at the Capitol. Lyk has twice been elected to the top post of a group with 20 chapters statewide and several hundred members. He is the highest-ranking state GOP leader so...

    Two separate Republican homosexual groups are arguing over who made the first inroads into the GOP platform-drafting process. From the Washington Blade [a 'gay' news source]: GOProud disputes Log Cabin’s ‘first’ at GOP convention Two gay Republican groups disagree over the claim that the participation of Log Cabin in the 2012 Republican platform drafting process is a “first” for the organization as claimed by its executive director. On Wednesday, the Washington Blade reported that Log Cabin would have four members of its organization credentialed to take part in the platform drafting process, which will happen in Tampa, Fla., the week...

    WASHINGTON -- A quiet transformation is taking place in the Republican Party, which has begun to embrace openly gay candidates - and among gay Republicans, who now feel more comfortable speaking out in a party that may have accepted them but didn't always show it. While differences still exist, the party is on the cusp of a generational shift in which the longtime foes of gay rights are replaced by younger party leaders who are more accepting. "It's an exponential change from a few years ago," said former Republican Rep. Jim Kolbe. "It's happening, and it's going to continue to...

    Log Cabin Republicans, a gay political action group, is in "ongoing" discussions with Mitt Romney's campaign and the Republican National Committee on a variety of issues, said the group's director, which most likely includes same-sex marriage and employment discrimination policies. The group will be meeting over the summer to determine whether to endorse Romney prior to the GOP convention. "I can't confirm the details of our conversations because they are of a 'private nature,'" the group's Deputy Executive Director Christian Berle told The Christian Post. "We're in ongoing conversations with the Romney campaign and the RNC on the issues that...

    A conservative Mississippi mayor has said he is gay after an audit showed he had the city pay for a wide range of personal expenses, including a visit to a gay sex store in Canada. Southaven Mayor Greg Davis revealed publicly for the first time Thursday that he is gay, and said he has struggled to keep his sexuality from affecting his public role as mayor of Mississippi’s third-largest city.

    The Log Cabin Republicans, a gay Republican group, on Wednesday criticized a new ad from Rick Perry in which the Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate suggests "there's something wrong" when gays can serve openly in the military but kids "can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school." "Our nation was built upon individual liberty and individual responsibility, and open service by gay and lesbian servicemembers is directly in line with the vision of our Founding Fathers," said R. Clarke Cooper, Executive Director of the Log Cabin Republicans. "It is wrong for Governor Perry to assume being a person of...

    Well, it looks like we have a new Anthony Weiner in town. A Puerto Rican TV show called Dando Candela presented Republican Senator Roberto Arango with naked pictures found on the Internet that they claimed were of him. He wouldn’t deny the allegations, saying he had taken photos like that but only to document his weight loss. Of course, that doesn’t explain the fact that the pictures were found on Grindr, a hook up site for gay and bisexual men.

    Lost amidst all insider bickering, Haley Barbour question-dodging, press-banning and John Bolton sabre-rattling at the weekend California Republican convention was a bit of history: The party elected its first openly gay board member. And we didn't see a hoot of protest about it. "Well, openly gay," quipped Gregory Gandrud, who just took his seat on the 23-member board. The 50-year-old Carpinteria (Santa Barbara County) resident is a longtime party activist, and Capinteria council member from 2002-2006. So about being "the first" -- a caveat: The California Log Cabin Republicans believe he is the first California Republican Party board member. Gandrud...

    Log Cabin Republicans petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to revive the legal battle over "don't ask, don't tell" after federal appeals court allowed the ban to stay in place indefinitely. On Friday, attorneys for the Log Cabin Republicans filed an appeal in hopes of finally overthrowing the ban on openly homosexual troops serving in the military. The gay and lesbian group had expressed opposition to last week’s 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to indefinitely uphold the 1993 law. In a Nov. 1 statement, Log Cabin Executive Director R. Clarke Cooper said, “Log Cabin Republicans is disappointed that Don’t Ask...

    When Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) agreed to attend a fundraising dinner in Washington for the Log Cabin Republicans, many social conservatives were outraged. The group has long urged the GOP to be more accepting of gay rights, and some Republicans worried that the appearance by Cornyn, a party leader in Congress, would further legitimize its views. The senator not only attended the Log Cabin event at the Capitol Hill Club last Wednesday, he also accepted an award from the group, becoming the highest-ranking Republican to do so. After his speech, though, the group's president, R. Clarke Cooper, privately told Cornyn...

    GOProud Pays Lots Of Money To Be Demeaned By Homophobic Racist 09/26/10-by Bridgette P. LaVictoireHomocon is exactly what Ann Coulter did yesterday. She conned a group of homosexuals to give her money while she demeaned them and went on in a very racist fashion. She apparently made a series of jokes and then went ahead and stated the predominantly wealthy conservative lesbians and gays that they should oppose marriage equality and said “I should warn you: I’ve never failed to talk gays out of gay marriage.” She then went on to parrot the usual run of why lesbians and gays...

    Suddenly, it's becoming less of a stigma for bigwigs to associate with gays in the Republican Party. Not only has former RNC chairman Ken Mehlman's 9/22 fundraiser for gay marriage rights attracted numerous high-octane Republican donors and activists, but Sen. John Cornyn, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and Rep. Pete Sessions, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee will help the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay GOP group, raise money for its political action committee. A glossy pamphlet advertising the Log Cabin Republicans' national dinner at the Capitol Hill Club highlights an hour-long cocktail gathering with...
