NBC news is reporting on a very telling ‘robocall’ which went out last night in South Carolina to more than 180,000 republicans. The call was intended to paint Donald Trump squarely in the ‘far left’ corner, [ not true ], but in the process the call just happened to reveal to voters the true depth of hatred and vitriol that Ted Cruz feels toward America’s #GLBT community:
“It’s about mandatory celebration,” the narrator says. “It’s about forcing people to bake cakes and photograph gay weddings, forcing clergy to officiate, about transgender bathrooms in your child’s school. It’s about tearing down our Judeo-Christian values.”
The ad then sharply states: “It’s about tearing down our America. Ted Cruz for president – now, before it’s too late.”
For starters, the contents of this robocall represent “gay fear porn” of the worst possible kind, playing upon the uneducated fears of the more homophobic elements in American society, who have long screamed that allowing gays and lesbians to gain their civil rights would result in the utter collapse of American society. What a bunch of insane hooey. So now we all know EXACTLY who Ted Cruz really is. He will be a president who will waste no time in rolling back every gain in civil rights and legal equality under the law that the #LGBT community has fought for over 30 years.
American voters should be on notice: if you are supporting Ted Cruz and intend to vote for him then you cannot pretend that you also support #EqualCivilRights for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people.
