Just Who Are The Gay Hating Republicans Who Voted Against Repealing DADT?

If you set aside tax cuts for millionaires (Nan and Scott Hayworth) and Billionaires (Gates, Buffett and Trump come to mind) the big news story out of Washington, DC this week was the Senate's failure to move the repeal of DADT (Don't Ask Don't Tell) forward. Some can blame the greed and game playing of Senator Collins (I do), others can blame Senator *Amnesty for Illegal Aliens* Reid (I do) but the truth of the matter is, 4o bigoted, homophobic Senators stopped the repeal of DADT...who are they? Here are their names...make sure you do your best to see they never get elected to public office again.

Out of forty votes cast against the repeal of DADT, thirty nine were cast by homophobic, gay hating Republicans. Now I am sure they will want to hide behind various and assorted Red Herrings, such as procedure, but call a spade a spade...Republican Senators with this vote have shown themselves homophobic, prejudiced bigots willing to do whatever it takes to deny basic human rights to a portion of our brave young men and women serving in the Armed Forces. They might as well have worn white robes while casting their votes.

We on this blog do not like Politicians...we like Republicans even less. Nan Hayworth was elected to send a message to Washington, not because she was a better choice...this blog is laying the ground work to defeat her in 2012.
