For instance, DeMaio has been the target of homophobic attacks. But where are those attacks coming from? Itâ€™s not always from the far right social conservatives youâ€™d expect; rather, itâ€™s been from DeMaioâ€™s left â€“ the liberal and Democrat-affiliated groups that youâ€™d think would be proud that an openly gay successful businessman has decided to run for office.
One false attack drew the attention of the San Diego Ethics Commission. An anonymous left-wing group funded a SuperPac and sent mailers of DeMaio Photoshopped next to a drag queen to neighborhoods with a majority of elderly and African-American voters, knowing that such a photo would depress support for DeMaio.
That was so egregious and false that the group was fined by the cityâ€™s Ethics Commission, but even after that, and with his 100 percent voting record with the LGBT community, the Left still didnâ€™t speak up to defend him. They told DeMaio, â€śItâ€™s complicated.â€ť
Iâ€™m sure. The Right, on the other hand, did speak up about it.
“I’ve found more tolerance, acceptance and inclusion from social conservative groups who have to reconcile that I’m a Republican who happens to be gay…versus the intolerance the LGBT leaders see me as a gay man who happens to be a Republican,” DeMaio said.
Read the whole thing.
I’ve often said, here, that the gun community has been far more accepting of me as gay, than the gay community has of me being a gun nut.
