Wait For It… Wait For It… Right Wing Freaks Over Romney Promise To Sign ENDA Into Law

News broke today that the Log Cabin Republicans — the saner gay GOP group — decided to apparently erode what little respect America has for them (for the record, we hold some respect for them) and endorse Governor Mitt Romney for president, despite the fact that he has signed a vow to make our marriages illegal, and has promised to let states prohibit us from: hospital visitation, adoption, and marriage.

READ: What Romney’s Promise To Support ENDA For Log Cabin Republicans Endorsement Really Means

Stop laughing, or crying, now, so you can finish reading this because I’ve got a lot to do tonight.

Then, just about an hour ago, news broke that the head of the Log Cabin Republicans, R. Clarke Cooper, reportedly was promised by Mitt Romney, or the Romney campaign, which should be effectively the same thing, that — in exchange for endorsing Romney For President 2012 And Paul Ryan Too, Woo Hoo! — the former Governor, former leveraged buyout CEO, former Olympics savior, former gay haircutting high school bully, former dog abuser (we hope former) — would work to get passed in Congress and sign into law ENDA: the Employment Non-Discrimination Act — which has been introduced into every Congress except one for two decades — that would, wait for it… wait for it… make it illegal to not hire, or to fire, anyone, for the mere fact that they are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.

And… wait for it… wait for it…

Bryan Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, just minutes ago freaked out.

Blah blah blah blah blargh…

Fischer, you’ll recall, says gays “are Nazis,” claims Hitler’s brownshirts were recruited from the gay community because he couldn’t find enough straight men who were as vicious as he needed, to, you know, capture 17 million+ people — including millions of gay people — and burn them alive.

Fischer, who uses terms like “gay gestapo.” That Bryan Fischer.

Here you go.

Frankly, seeing Fischer freak over the mere possibility that millions of LGBT people might be treated equally is, well, it’s like Christmas. In October!

Flip Flop in 3..2..1

The question is by whom…. We know Romney and his campaign have a severe case of Romnesia so it more than likely a denial will come from them. the question then becomes will LCR remove its endorsement or will it also acquire Romnesia and continue to support Romney. I think I am going to go pop some popcorn now. THIS should be interesting.

Hard to say who is more pathetic – Fischer, Romney, LCR, ….

Your comment shows you are a complete asshole if you think there is any similarity between Log Cabin and Fischer. You and Fischer are really two peas in a pod since you both hate Log Cabin and want us to leave the Republican Party. What a strange alliance!

Fischer is a piece of garbage and should be prohibited from both voting and reproducing – but that was hardly a "freak out". It's the same sort of rhetoric we hear from them on a daily basis.
