A gas tax in California passed along party lines, and no one’s happy about it. In fact, grassroots activists met at the Fullerton Wal-Mart to gather signatures to try to unseat one of the Democratic Senators who supported it. However, one Democratic official — Jeff LeTourneau — was pretty angry that people were using their free speech right out in the open… especially when he discovered that one of the activists was gay. “Which one of you —holes is the gay?” he demanded.
“The gay” was Carl DeMaio, a gay former GOP congressional candidate and a conservative talk radio host. And LeTourneau, who is the Vice-Chair of the Democratic Party of Orange County, angrily accosted him. Truth Revolt has the scoop on what was said:
This is the insanity of Democrats. They say you can’t be for “women’s rights” (even if you are a woman) if you don’t toe the line on the marginal tax rate. They say you can’t be “in the black community,” (even if you’re black) if you’re opposed to abortion. And now, apparently, you can’t be a part of the LGBTQ community (even if you’re gay)if you are opposed to this California gasoline tax.
“I’m here as an openly gay person on Pride weekend seeing these two people disgracing my community and letting them know I don’t care about them,” LeTourneau said. “They’re liars! They’re liars!” LeTourneau apparently believes that all gay people have to vote in one way: for liberals. “You do not belong to our community. You also do not belong to the LGBTQ community either.”
The Democratic official also insulted a Wal-Mart shopper who was signing the petition, causing a manager to come out and tell him that no one deserves his harassment. Watch liberal tolerance in action below (Warning: Language!):
