Republican Gays are Closeted Dems! Oh, That Explains It.

Cliff Kincaid of right-wing financed Accuracy in Media is determined to push his Mark Foley-scandal “explanations” as far as they will go – as long as it is nowhere near the truth.

When the scandal first broke, Kincaid said Republicans had only themselves to blame for being so darn gullible for allowing gays into the GOP in the first place:

House leaders permitted homosexuals to infiltrate and manipulate the party apparatus while they publicly postured as friends of family values and traditional marriage.

But since then, Kincaid has advanced beyond that sort of rudimentary blame-game in favor of a much more elaborate conspiracy theory:  gay Republicans are really undercover Democratic operatives!!  Who knew?  

The complex nature of the “dirty trick” against the Republicans over the Mark Foley scandal is beginning to emerge. It doesn’t involve a George Soros-funded group or emails that had been in the possession of the media or shopped around by Democratic operatives. Instead, the GOP has played a trick on itself. The party brought so-called gay Republicans into positions of power in Congress only to realize that the confidential information they held about a secret gay network was political dynamite that could backfire.


If you are getting the idea that gay Republicans may be closeted Democrats, then you are beginning to understand how the Mark Foley scandal could have been a Democratic Party dirty trick. 

So if the gay Republicans are not really Republicans, what are they? One veteran observer of this network told AIM that the Foley scandal should make it crystal clear that the gay Republicans are in reality “liberal activists” who want to use the party to advance the same homosexual agenda embraced by the Democrats.

In Kincaid’s view, the GOP has been infiltrated by “liberal activists” posing as gay Republicans in an intricate and convoluted plan to advance the Democratic Party’s agenda which, thanks to the Foley scandal, Kincaid alone has now managed to uncover.   

Should the November elections go the way more pollsters and pundits are predicting – resulting in previously unexpected losses for Republicans – no doubt Kincaid and his compadres will find it easier to continue blaming gays instead of dealing with the truth about the Grand Old Party.  

They are losing voters the honest way. Voters are tired of 1) being manipulated with talk of “values” 2) Bush’s popularity is way down 3) public and even congressional support for the war in Iraq continues to slip and 4) influence buying scandals in Washington are all a lot more powerful than the “secret gay network” that exists only in the fertile imagination of a right-wing in denial.
