That GOProud proudly defends and support anti-gay politicians is not surprising. In fact, they are more than willing to support some of the worst homophobes out there rather than support the LGBT Community. For Jimmy DeSalvia, appearing on MSNBC opposite Thomas Roberts was probably not going to make his day go well.
Roberts is one of three openly gay anchors on the cable news network. The others being Dr. Rachel Maddow and CNN’s Don Lemon. DeSalvia spoke of how the anti-gay gay rights groups is willing to support Bachmann because he feels it is important to replace what he sees as a ‘failed president.’
Roberts had some rather strong words to pass along. She said “You will replace [Obama] with a person who would extinguish you.” He also pointed out that Bachman “doesn’t believe that you have a right in this country to get married, that believes you don’t even have a right in this country to be gay because she co-owns a clinic that will convert you.”
