Dems Feeling the Heat

A recent closed door session between gay leaders and Dem leaders left the Dems with their butts feeling a bit stung. Slowly more and more news will come out about this, but the bottom line is that the gay community is tired of being crapped on by the Democrats. It's time to put up or shut up. To add fuel to the gay fire, a new poll released by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press shows amazing trends of support in nearly all areas for the gay community.

The Blend summarized this well:

* 51% oppose legalizing gay marriage, a significant decline from 63% in in February 2004 (after the Massachusetts Supreme Court decision leading to the legalization of marriage).

* A 60% majority now favors allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military, up from 52% in 1994.

* In the South, the only region in which a majority of residents (55%) opposed allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly, the opposition is at an incredible 35%, with 58% supporting open service.

* Even when you look at Republicans bigotry is losing traction -- 46% favor allowing gays to serve openly and 46% are opposed.

* 46% support gay adoption, up from 38% in 1999.

And look at this -- Pew finds "strong" opposition to gay marriage has ebbed to a new low in almost every demographic group except the bible-beating, Dobson-approved, whining evangelicals (56% of them still strongly oppose legalizing gay marriage, down from 65% two years ago)


One of the best quotes up on The Blend came from Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry:

"They will never be anti-gay enough to satisfy their opponents"

All Dems are doing is pissing off loyal gay voters and putting themselves on the wrong side of history. They are hurting themselves by looking weak to their opponents and disloyal to their constituents. The next election they lose, go ahead...blame it on the gays because this time it WILL BE because of us that you lose. Because we won't be voting for you, until YOU support us! Yes, we ARE you're weak link until you strengthen us.

Too many elected officials of both parties think only within the box built for them by the pooh bahs and pundits in the press

reality's different - and it has so much more to offer - they should get real.
