"Pull my finger, sonny"

"See, Vlad, this is how you grease the rubes. You start small."

"You ought to start going shirtless, Vladimir. You've certainly got the body for it."

"For an 'Evil Empire' this place sure looks an awful lot like Magic Kingdom."

"No, seriously, pull my finger."

Republicans Kiss the Gays Goodbye as GOProud Closes Up Shop

Stockholm Syndrome has ended for yet another entity. After GOProud founder Jimmy LaSalvia quit the organization and left the Republican Party last year for their intolerant views, the organization as a whole is now packing up and leaving town. Yes, the gays are now free from the shackles from the people that hate them the most: Republicans.

The organization, just five years old, has had a hard time adapting to the strong anti-gay crowd that is the GOP. After the founder had called it quits, its Co-founder Chris Barron also left the GOProud organization in 2013 after the ultra conservative CPAC denied them representation and participation from the 3-day forum. They were denied again for the 2014 conference. The organization, which has dedicated itself to providing for LGBT wingnuts with their their equally messed-up straight counterparts, finally came out of the closet and realized that they just aren’t growing as they should.

Gee, I wonder why that is. Could it be because 76% of LGBT citizens voted for Barack Obama in 2012? It’s a little hard to grow when your own people are 3/4 Democrat, not Republican.

But this stagnating should not be a surprise. This, coming from the organization that had Ann Coulter as a member of their advisory council since 2011 even though she told the GOProud audience that she did not support gay marriage and that marriage is not a civil right. This is the organization that endorsed Mitt Romney for president even though he opposes same sex marriage and civil unions, and supports a federal marriage amendment banning same sex marriage. This is the organization that sent out attack ads AGAINST Barney Frank and Democrats who support same-sex marriage. This is the organization that harbored opposition to the Employment Nondiscrimination Act and the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. This is the organization that purposely outed a political consultant from Rick Perry’s campaign to prove gays really reside in the GOP.
