Gregory T. Angelo Named Interim President Of National Log Cabin Republicans

 The Log Cabin Republicans announced today that that Gregory T. Angelo has been named interim director of the organization, as R. Clarke Cooper steps down from the post at the end of the year.

The director of the Log Cabin Republicans of New York State since 2009, Angelo believes “2013 could mark a turning point in the fight for equal rights for all.” He adds that, “it has never been more critical to advocate for equality to Republicans, as Republicans.”

His tenure, which officially starts January 2, comes at something of a turning point for the LCR, who have been taking a harder line on gay issues: Yesterday the group took out a full-page ad in the New York Times criticizing possible Defense Secretary appointee Chuck Hagel for homophobic comments he made some years back.

      So which person who speaks out against war, military spending, Israel or tries to protect the rights of ALL people in your country will they attack next?

      They are the single most spineless group of people in the history of politics, and that is really, really, really, really, really, really, really saying something.

      Ugh. I used to work with this guy, and he infuriated me and irritated me constantly, not least because he always insisted on referring to himself as Gregory TEE Angelo. Still, his former flatmate did have perhaps the biggest penis I have ever encountered.

      Angelo despises Pride parades like many in his group, the ones who like the ‘quiet’ life and want to be left alone and don’t like wearing their sexuality on their sleeves. They sit back in the comfort of their quiet lives, basking in their fat portfolios and supporting the likes of Mitt Romney, although Angelo supported Gingrich, but probably voted for Romney anyway. He forgets it was those campy out and loud queens at Stonewall who’ve made it possible for some gay republicans to come out while they sit at home reaping the benefits made possible by those who went before them and putting their lives at risk. Typical selfish republicans.

      So Herbie didn’t grow up to be a dentist afterall. He grew up to become interim president of the log cabin republicans.

      you show me a gay republican and i’ll show you a boy with no balls who will waste his life begging his bigoted family for tolerance rather than manning the f**k up and doing the right thing in standing up against bigotry.

      @Little-Kiwi: The evidence is absolutely empirically in your favour at a ratio of 100%.

      There are literally none who don’t fit that description, literally not used in an ironic, sarcastic or dismissive tone, actually meaning literally, as in completely 100% accurate.

      The kind of face only a mother with a Proctology diploma could love.

      How horrid. Send him away and don’t let him come back until he has the same ideas as everyone else.

      Maybe the new President will come clean on who paid for that expensive full page ad in the NY Times that’s some suspect the Jewish lobbies financed, using Log Cabin as cover for their anti-Obama, anti-Hagel campaign.

      I dont expect much from the Log Cabins, but maybe jsut maybe they will do something that will surprise us. There was a time when LCR fought for us in DADT while the Stonewall Dems were afraid to do anything to disturb the status quo.

      Im still giving my money to GetEqual and GetEqual alone, but I have some hope that the LCR will at least cause some divisions in the R party so that the extreme right are somehow neutralized. We have the majority of the country and the Young/College Republicans on our side, so Im hoping that they can gather a big enough coalition to at least be a voice for us in that side of the aisle.

      This could all be pollyana-ish, but they have tried appeasement and it didnt work. Maybe this change in leadership means that they have learned their lesson.
