Gay men in Washington and beyond should begin taking cameras into gay bars to photograph Ken Mehlman, Chairman of the Republican Party, who is alleged to be gay. If Mehlman is the closet case activists, such as Mike Rogers, say he is, then he is a disgrace to humanity and the ultimate turncoat "Uncle Mary" - the gay version of an Uncle Tom.
This is the first time I have ever urged the gay community to aggressively out someone. However, if Mehlman is gay, he has no place in the very gay community he has trashed. Not in our bars. Not on our Internet cruising websites (a favorite hangout for depraved GOP closet cases - Just ask sleazy Spokane Mayor Jim West) Indeed, his very power has derived from virulent gay bashing and his career has risen in direct proportion to anti-gay political rhetoric. He has made his living, by ensuring gay teens continue dying through suicides prompted by a hateful climate in some intolerant parts of America.
During the 2004 election, Mehlman helped craft the GOP's sleazy strategy to use anti-marriage Amendments to help Bush win. This alleged Uncle Mary also allowed the Republican National Committee to use heinously homophobic ads to get "Values Voters" to the polls.
On Sunday, Mehlman defended the Bush Administration's awful anti-gay record on NBC's Meet the Press. Worse, he pretended not to know whether homosexuality is a choice. While being gay is not a choice, some mentally disturbed gay people do choose to help a gay-hating party retain power. Take a look at the Meet the Press transcript to see what a traitor sounds like.
It is almost painful to watch the stilted Mehlman mouth his malarkey on television. His plastic persona is scripted and soulless and inescapably insincere. He looks like a man with secrets who is uncomfortable in his own skin. Or perhaps, it is that he may be most comfortable touching another man's skin, which would not be conducive to climbing the career ladder in the GOP.
It escapes me to understand how someone like Mehlman (He refuses to say if he is gay, which is unheard of for a GOP honcho) looks in the mirror or sleeps at night. I have come to the conclusion that the continuation and perpetuation of anti-gay bias is a direct result of self-loathing homosexuals. They are our worst enemy because their self-hatred is what drives them to extraordinary lengths to gay bash. The time for being nice is over. Each and every sociopath hypocrite who uses homophobia to selfishly advance his or her career should be exposed. Am I the only one who is fed up with protecting their dysfunctional and dangerous closets?
MEET THE PRESS
MR. TIM RUSSERT: Will the president continue to push for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage?
MR. KEN MEHLMAN: The president strongly believes that marriage in this country ought to be between a man and a woman. He also believes it is something that ought to be decided by the people. He doesn't believe that judges ought to impose their will on the people. And because there have been a number of judicial decisions, most recently in Nebraska, that have made that decision for the people. He believes that a constitutional amendment is appropriate so the people can weigh in. It's something that's before the United States Senate. It's one of their agenda items they intend to move on this year, and I think we can expect to see them do that.
MR. RUSSERT: You've been trying to broaden the base of the Republican Party and yet Log Cabin Republicans, gay Republicans, issued this statement in the course of last year's election: "...it is impossible to overstate the depth of anger and disappointment caused by the President's support for an anti-family Constitutional Amendment. This amendment would not only ban gay marriage, it would also jeopardize civil unions and domestic partnerships. ... Some will accuse us of being disloyal. However, it was actually the White House who was disloyal to the 1,000,000 gay and lesbian Americans who supported him four years ago in 2000. Log Cabin's decision was made in response to the White House's strategic political decision to pursue a re-election strategy catered to the radical right. ... Using gays and lesbians as wedge issues in an election year is unacceptable to Log Cabin..."
MR. MEHLMAN: I would respectfully disagree with their statement on that. I think this is an issue in which there's some disagreement. The fact is if you look at the exit polls about 23 percent of gays and lesbians voted for this president, so lot of folks disagreed with what the Log Cabin Republicans said. I'm glad they're supporting the president's position on Social Security. But I think that fundamentally for the president and for millions of Americans, this is an issue of principle. Who should decide on a critical question of how we define marriage in this country? Should it be decided by an activist court or by the people? We believe the people should make this decision.
MR. RUSSERT: Do you believe homosexuality is a choice?
MR. MEHLMAN: I don't know the answer to that question. I don't think it matters to the fundamental question here because at bottom, this president believes in non-discrimination. He believes in equal treatment. He believes in respect for all. He also believes, separate and apart from that question, that the fundamental question of marriage ought to be defined in the way it's been defined for more than 200 years of our nation's history, which is by the people's representative at the state legislatures.
MR. RUSSERT: But the Log Cabin Republicans will say if you're born gay, it's a biological determination, not a matter of choice.
MR. MEHLMAN: And that's--that may be, but the fact is that's irrelevant to question of the public definition of marriage. They're two totally different issues.
Ellen are you f---in crazy!?!? We've been turning the other 'chek' for far too long. When you turn the other cheek, they just punch the other one and you end up without a face. Hitler MAY have had a Jewish grandfather and he KNEW this, we see the same psychological dynamics here with Mehlman, albeit on a smaller scale. OUT these hate pedaling scumsuckers!!

Closeted, self-loathing hypocrites are doing the most damage to gays and lesbians. What Mehlman said at MTP is unacceptable and shows and complete disrespect for his fellow citizens. He failed to tell the truth behind the marriage bans, and that is the GOP cowering to the thugs of the religous right who have been working behind the scenes for years to eliminate gays. The biggest lie was stating that Bush believes in equality and non-discrimination, what a complete crock. People like Mehlman have declared open season on us, it's high time to call them on their lies, out em all! Tim W

Gays who are traitors to their own kind need to be exposed as the hypocrites that they are, because maybe then they will deal with the issue of being gay. And mr. besen is right. Self hating gays are the worst homophobes because they are absolutely miserable because they can't accept who they are and see us as happy and they want to make us as miserable as they are. You may ask how can I judge these people? It is because I used to be a big time homophobe until I accepted who I was and knew I couldn't change. (by the way I never beat up any gays or killed any but I probably would have given the chance.)

As I have said in numerous, often contentious, debates about outing, all gay Republicans, especially those who actively support the anti-gay measures of their party, deserve to be outed in the most public, flagrant way possible. The time for "turning the other cheek" is over. The Republicans are in an all-out war with the gay community, and they expect us to roll over, because they know there are apologists like Ellen out there who will simply "turn the other cheek" to seem like the better person.
I don't WANT to be the better person. Mehlman and his ilk are traitors to the community, and they deserve nothing but scorn. Mehlman especially has been instrumental in fanning the flame of hatred against gays. It's time to bring him down.
