If you're trying to figure out which of those four -- Fags, Baby-killers, Wetbacks or Rubio is most offensive, let me help. The last one.
Why? Because Marco Rubio is anti-LGBT, anti-abortion and anti-immigration. It's worth repeating. Marco Rubio is anti-LGBT, anti-abortion and anti-immigration.
For a man with his lofty political ambitions, to become the president of the United States, he's tossed away any realistic chance to get his party's nomination with his stance. But that's not the biggest concern.
To be competitive in the Republican Party today -- that's combining the Tea Party faction with the conservatives and the moderates (a silent minority) -- you have to race to the right. Way right. Like off the map, right. You have to out conservative the most extreme elements that the GOP can muster. And therein lies the rub.
What we will see is not the party taking a shift toward common sense and human respect. They will go as hard as they can for regression. They really do want to see Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians "put in their place." Women having babies and not asking any questions. And stopping all immigration, legal or otherwise. They want us armed, uneducated and letting Wall Street and Big Banks have their way. They don't want the rich to be taxed and they don't care to uphold human rights. If you're not straight, there's no place for you here. Homosexuality is to them, a jail-able offense.
HuffPo has this headline:
MARCO RUBIO TO BE KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT ANTI-GAY GROUPS ANNUAL EVENT
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is scheduled to serve as the keynote speaker at the "conservative dinner event of the year": the Florida Family Policy Council’s 8th Annual Policy Awards Dinner on Nov. 16.
The FFPC, a staunchly conservative nonprofit dedicated to promoting anti-gay and pro-life policies, is run by John Stemberger, an outspoken anti-gay activist who supports banning gays from participating in the Boy Scouts.
That's some company Rubio is keeping. And it gets worse. Marco is actually going back against a bill that has his name on it, the senate immigration bill. The junior senator from Florida is accusing Obama of being a liar on keeping your health care plan if you want. Well Marco's no less a liar when he pushes through a bill, votes for it, then pulls his support once it passes.
He strongly opposes all LGBT rights while he supports a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. He doesn't seem to care that the Supreme Court has made rulings which indicate that ain't gonna happen. Just this week Illinois passed a bill to legalize same sex marriage and Hawaii is poised to do so as any day now.
Look at some other issues this Party of No member has recently recently cast support to. He voted to keep the government shut down as well as voting against the Employment non-discrimination act.
So LGBTer's, women, immigrants, Jews, poor, young, old -- if you want or need a champion, this is not your man.
He's setting the bar way to the right and sadly, I fear we're going to see the other GOP candidates tack even further to his starboard side. Watch out America. The racists and haters aren't just coming. They've already arrived.
