Republicans Are Leaving the Gays Alone, So How Come Democrats Are Pussying Out On Us?

In the 2010 election cycle, Republicans have mostly given up on victimizing America’s gays as a way to get voters to the polls. (Sorry, Muslims and Mexicans!) So why haven’t Democrats seen the hints and realized they no longer have to be afraid of us queers?

Keith Boykin tells The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur that Democrats have a reason to be fearful of of LGBT issues. See: Clinton White House. But they’re also scared of defending any typically “Democratic issue,” whether it’s civil rights for gays or religious freedoms for Muslims.
