So Your Telling Me, That Democratic Party Support Gay Right's , but will not defend Gay Republican , Gay Right's? Why?
The incident took place in front of WalMart in Fullerton in the heart of the 29th Senate District, which Newman represents. LeTourneau, a long-time left-wing Democratic acivists notorious for his volcanic public outbursts, accused recall organizer Carl DeMaio, a gay Republican activist and former San Diego councilmean, of being a traitor to gays.
LeTourneau took photos of DeMaio and threaten to socially ostracize him:
LeTourneau continued berating the man, barking that he was not authentically gay:
“LeTourneau clearly thinks that if you are gay, you can only be a Democrat which is both arrogant and highly offensive,” DeMaio told the media. “The idea that Californians are sick of paying higher taxes cuts across party lines and sexual orientation.”
OC Daily reached out to OC Democratic Party Chair Fran Sdao for comment on whether this is appropriate behavior from a DPOC officer.
LeTourneau has a knack for courting controversy. Earlier this year, he came under fire to admitting, while addressing the Anaheim City Council, that he had illegally shipped medical marijuana across state lines. He cut his political teeth in ACT-UP’s confrontational, in-your-face school of political action.
The tragic shooting attack on the Republican congressional baseball team by ardent progressive activist James Hodgkinson, in which he severely wounded Rep. Steve Scalise and several other staffers and Capitol police officers, has sparked a national conversation about the toxic political environment created by extreme political rhetoric and actions. This is driven almost exclusively by progressive-Left activists unable to cope with Donald Trump’s election and responding with over-the-top, over-heated rhetoric about fascism killing our Republic.
Given the apparent desire by political leaders on both sides of the aisle to lower the partisan temperature and pull our politics back from the brink, one has to wonder if it is time for the DPOC to retire LeTourneau’s extreme, attack-dog brand of activism.
