GOProud, the gay Tea Party conservative group, announced today that they “are committed to defeating Barrack Obama in 2012,” and they “want to be helpful to whoever secures the GOP nomination,” including Michele Bachmann, the extremely anti-gay Republican Congresswoman whose views on homosexuality — along with her husband’s Christian counseling and ex-gay reparative therapy practices  – have been nonstop fodder for the media for the past three weeks.

Via Chris Moody at The Ticket:

“GOProud Executive Director Jimmy LaSalvia said that representatives with the organization have already met with some of the GOP candidates to discuss GOProud’s legislative agenda–including a commitment to defeat a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, which Bachmann supports–and they’re hoping Bachmann will grant them some face time.

“We have requested a meeting with Michele Bachmann,” LaSalvia told The Ticket. “We’ve made this request, as with the other requests, in good faith.” He said GOProud officials intend to “discuss issues important to gay conservatives” with Bachmann and “anything she wishes to talk about.”

In an interview with Politico, GOProud Chairman Christopher Barron said he was “concerned” and “troubled” by Bachmann’s record and past statements about gay issues, but would not “be part of any ‘war against Michele Bachmann.’”

Bachmann has likened homosexuality to Satan, bondage, slavery, despair, child abuse, and sexual dysfunction, while she and her husband, Marcus, own two “Christian counseling” centers that have been the subject of under cover investigation proving they practice harmful “reparative,” or “ex-gay” therapy.

While I'd prefer not to flirt with Godwin's Law here, the fact remains that GOProud is the Vichy of the gay community at large–pathetic, parasitic collaborators who completely deserve the opprobrium they receive from the majority of gays AND their handlers on the right.

I do not understand living with self-hate. I do not understand placing transient economics over liberty, equality, and justice. I simply do not understand giving aid to those who are doing their best to keep you underfoot.
