The comedian Dave Chappelle did a very funny skit on his program where a blind black man became the most revered member of the Ku-Klux-Klan. Nobody knew that he was black because he wore a hood and he never knew he was black because he was blind. At the end of the skit he finds out that he is black and he subsequently divorces his wife because she is, in his own words, â€œ a nigger lover!â€
I can not think of a better metaphor than Chappelle’s skit for the gay people who identify themselves as Republicans. The hood in the skit that prevented others from finding out that Chappelle’s character is black is just like the proverbial â€œclosetâ€ in which gay people hide from those who persecute them and from themselves. And the fact that Chappelle’s character was a leader in the most anti-black hate group on the planet, the Ku-Klux-Klan, represents the leadership in the politically masochistic organization known calling themselves Log Cabin Republicans!
The Log Cabin Republicans just concluded a conference during which they decided to continue to adhere to the core values of the Republican party. I suppose the theme of this convention was â€œthank you sir, may I have another!â€ There is nothing more difficulty for me to do than to support people that actively take part in their own abuse and let me tell you I can not think of anything more difficult to do than support the rights of the homosexuals who align themselves with the political enemies of homosexuals.
Let’s face it, Log Cabin Republicans are to the Republican party what the cheerleaders played by Will Ferrell & Cheri Oteri on Saturday Night Live were to the rest of the squad.
Being a gay Republican is like being a black Klansman or a Jewish Nazi. They should form a new party taking the good values of the Republican party and they should leave out the hate policies of the current party. But they should not be supporting their abusers.
Then again…I may be completely wrong about the Log Cabin Republicans. They may actually be the most powerful Republican organization around because it seems like a heck of a lot of their leaders are either suspiciously â€œconnectedâ€ to out of the closet homosexuals or are eventually outted themselves! Can anyone say â€œJeff Gannonâ€? Think about it!
