Over 300 Prominent Republicans Come Out of Closet in Support of Homosexual ‘Marriage’

Over 300 Prominent Republicans Come Out of Closet in Support of Homosexual ‘Marriage’.

Typical…

WASHINGTON – Over 300 prominent Republicans have signed a brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court calling for the legalization of same-sex “marriage” nationwide.

The amicus brief, or friend of the court brief, was led by former Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Ken Mehlman, who also served as manager of George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign.

“One of the points that I hope people appreciate when they read the brief is that supporting marriage equality is, in fact, the conservative position,” Mehlman told the Boston Globe.

If so, then that shows the utter and complete intellectual and moral bankruptcy of so-called ‘conservatism’ today, simply allowing the left to move the goalposts over time, via a ratchet effect that apparently only moves in one direction, then defending whatever the ‘new normal’ is as ‘conservatism’.

This is why I’m a reactionary.

“Although amici hold a broad spectrum of socially and politically conservative, moderate, and libertarian views, amici share the view that laws that bar same-sex couples from the institution of civil marriage, with all its attendant profoundly important rights and responsibilities, are inconsistent with the United States Constitution’s dual promises of equal protection and due process,” it reads.

Besides Mehlman, others who signed the brief include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, retired U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, two aides to 2008 presidential candidate John McCain and his daughter Meghan, and several aides who served  Mormon presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who ran for office in 2012.

Dan Blum, the 2011-2012 campaign manager for Scott Walker, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida, former U.S. Rep. Rick Lazio of New York, former U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis of South Carolina and political commentator C.E. Cupp were also among the over 300 signees.

I’m tempted to compare these ‘amici’ with certain others, but that would be unfair to Mafiosi, who to their credit at least don’t care about such matters…

As previously reported, possible presidential candidate Mike Huckabee told the American Family Association (AFA) in October that if Republicans continue to give in on same-sex “marriage”, he—and other Christians—will leave the party.

“[I]f the Republicans want to lose guys like me and a whole bunch of still God-fearing, Bible-believing people, go ahead and just abdicate on this issue, and go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either. Because at that point, you lose me, I’m gone,” he declared. “I’ll become an independent. I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand. I’m tired of this.”

As if he’d suddenly grow a spine. That’d be like the Southern Baptists keeping their previous boycott of Disney going, instead of capitulating, as they did…

Evanjellyfish be evanjellyfish. Useful (to the powers that be) idiots, who may howl like Huckabee, but ultimately politically useless (to those of us still actually fighting for the right side in the culture war).

    Return of the RINOS.

    The Republicans do this EVERY time. They’re the only group I’ve ever known who celebrate their victories by surrendering to the enemy.

    I am sick of Kick@ss warrior princesses. Looks like the so called conservatives are into it.

    “Strong” and “Empowered” women just get on my nerves.

    @Eric, swallow the entire red pill. The Republicans ARE the enemy, just as much as the Democrats.

    The only question I have is why any decent person would have anything to do with the GOP in the first place.

    My how the fools fall all over themselves to catch up with liberalism’s racing shadow. It is folly to vote for any parties in the west. Foster and foment hatred of this wretched system and order, and eventually the Reactionary aim will be realized. The Modern Western World will not be reformed, it will be destroyed. No crop will grow on blighted soil, and Modernity is blight.

    @ Eric: I’m with Carnivore, Peter and Mark; the entire system is corrupt, there are few worthwhile political parties in the western world, period, except for ones reviled by progs and framed as ‘racist’, like France’s Front National. Which means they’re doing something right. 🙂

    @ infowarrior1: Ugh. Me too. No surprise the people who idolize Sarah Palin like Disney Warrior Princesses bullshit…

    Utterly worthless people.

    Paycheck conservatives.

    One party wants to destroy the nation. The other just wants to win

    It’s impossible for me to feel sorry for any adult with a functioning cerebrum who takes anything the Republican Party says seriously. Really, folks, there is NO excuse for you not knowing better by now. Grow up, fer God’s sake.

    Well, I do cut younger fellers some slack. It’s a tough pill to swallow and a deep rabbit hole to follow. If one acknowledges that the Repubs and Dems work for the same ends, then it becomes obvious change will not be enabled via the political/election process. One must then ask in what way will change come about and how can one enable it since it’s obvious the current order is not sustainable. Those answers can be very uncomfortable and unpleasant.

    The ones who irk me are the ‘conservative’ baby boomers who still rally around the Repukes after having lived through so many election cycles which resulted in disappointment.

    Disillusionment is indeed often a painful process.

    But at the end of it, you’re freed from your illusions, which is a burden lifted.

    Neo-con Boomers are as stupid as Charlie Brown, thinking that next time, Lucy won’t pull away the football.
