The Washington Post reports:
Jennifer Horn was pushed right up to a line she swore she would never cross. Her GOP organization, where she sat on the board for several years, had just endorsed President Trump for reelection, something she says she would never do herself. Faced with the thought of having to explain that decision to her children in the future, she chose to resign instead.
Horn sent a letter to the chair and vice chair of the Log Cabin Republicans, a national LGBTQ organization, on Monday after the group announced its endorsement of Trump.
In a Thursday op-ed in The Washington Post, LCR chair Robert Kabel and vice-chair Jill Homan announced their endorsement, praising Trump for his “commitments to the United States, including taking bold actions that benefit the LGBTQ community.”
But wait, there’s more:
Robert Turner, the former president of the D.C. chapter of the national LGBT group Log Cabin Republicans, announced in a Facebook message on Aug. 15 that he has withdrawn his membership in the organization after it announced in an op-ed column in the Washington Post that it endorsed President Donald Trump for re-election in 2020.
“It saddens me greatly to say that today, I am ending my association with Log Cabin Republicans, an organization I’ve been heavily involved with for the last decade – including serving as president of the D.C. chapter for three years,” Turner said in his Facebook post.
They’re very unhappy about the backlash:
The reaction to our endorsement was predictable, but the viciousness of the attacks by the far Left are definitely the most surprising. We’ve been called every name you can think of.
But this is straight out of their handbook — name calling when presented with the real facts.
We are a threat to the Democrats’ victimization playbook and the blowback we’ve received is commensurate with the impact we’re having. We are disrupting the narrative.
On Facebook, the Log Cabin Quislings effectively admit that the endorsement was made purely to own the libs.
