People Who Live In Log Cabins

Are living in the past.

Log Cabin Republicans are LGBTQ Republicans and they vote not for human rights but for their own profits and racism.

Andrew Brett, president of the Broward County Log Cabin Republicans, tore into muslims, President Trump’s impeachment, and several U.S. House Representatives during a rally in front of Wilton Manors City Hall Monday morning.

About 12 people showed up in support of the organization. The LCR represents LGBT Republicans. About three dozen counter protestors also showed up.

“The Democratic Party has become the party of division in America,” Brett said starting off a speech that was riddled with wild claims, conspiracy theories and inflammatory rhetoric. “Whereas, the Republican Party is the party of inclusion for all Americans.” 
Okay get up off the floor laughing.

These people are living in a fantasy world, just look at the Republicans1 in Congress… they are lily white and male. Out of 105 women in the House, 90 are Democrats, and 15 are Republicans, in the Senate there are 25 women, 17 are Democrats and 8 are Republicans. There are 56 African American members in Congress, 52 of the African American House members are Democrats, and one is a Republican, in the Senate two Democrats and one is Republican. In religious affiliation there are 26 are Jewish of which 24 are Democrats, and 3 are Muslims, 3 are Hindus, and 1 Buddhist and they are all Democrats.2

Yeah, right, “Republican Party is the party of inclusion”
“I think it’s important to be here because generations that follow us will be subject to the horrible laws and punishments from this administration if [Trump] should be reelected,” Rajner said. “He’s appointed some terrible judges that are hostile to the LGBT community, and our protections are eroding so quickly. We must stand up, we must register to vote, and we must get the community to mobilize to stand up against this hate.”
But they still support the Republicans.
“So when GLBT folks, not only in Broward County, but throughout the country say — ‘President Trump is taking our rights away.’ I always ask ‘What rights has he taken away from you when you woke up this morning?’ He hasn’t. And didn’t.”
Lets take a look at what he took away...

  • He took away our right to health care.
  • He took away our right to have a job
  • He took away our right to housing
  • He took away are right to serve in the military
  • He took away are right to be free from discrimination

While we are talking about the Republicans attack us…
Transgender employees sue Florida over state's trans health care ban
State employees are unable to access gender-affirming health care due to a ban on those services in their health insurance plan.

Two transgender women filed a lawsuit against the state of Florida on Monday over its ban on transgender-related health care for state workers, arguing it violates the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

“We brought this lawsuit because all people need access to medical care. This is not about special treatment; this is about equal treatment,” said lead counsel Simone Chriss. “Transgender state employees are singled out and explicitly denied coverage for one reason: They are transgender. That is discrimination, and it cannot stand.”

The suit, which was brought by Southern Legal Counsel, the ACLU of Florida and Eric Lindstrom, an attorney, seeks to end Florida’s State Plan Exclusion, a rule that prohibits state employer-provided health plans from covering “gender reassignment or modification services or supplies.”
This law suit might become moot depending upon what the Supreme Court rules in June on if we are covered by Title VII and Title IX, the court could dash all our hopes for protection under the Civil Rights Act Titles VII and IX.
