Scott Brown Invites Gay Activist To DADT Repeal Ceremony
Massachusetts Republican Senator, Scott Brown, took one more step out of the RINO closet last week, when he invited a notorious gay activist, and his “life mate,” to attend the ceremony repealing the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” legislation on gays in the military.
Antiques dealer Tom Lang was a key voice in getting Brown to change his vote in favor of repealing the quasi-ban on gays in the military, reports The Boston Herald. Brown, along with several other RINO Senators, initially voted down the lifting of DADT on technical rules when it was attached to a military spending bill.
“We’re dealing with a statesman here, not a puppet. I respect the man,” Lang was quoted as saying about Brown.
Lang is the founder of KnowThyNeighbor.org, which listed the names and addresses of all 170,000 signers of a 2005 petition to get the Marriage Amendment, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman, on the Massachusetts ballot, encouraging people to “pay them a visit.”
Many signatories of the popular legislation were attacked and harassed at their homes and work; others were threatened with being fired and shunned from local gatherings, reports MassResistance.
Lang has expanded his KnowThyNeighbor campaign to other states where efforts to put similar amendments on the ballot were conducted. He has also led many other violent attacks and instigated intimidation tacticts against parents’ rights groups and churches, according to MassResistance.
Brown’s inviting Lang and his “life mate” to the Washington, DC ceremony is latest of an ever-growing list of disappointments to Tea Party activists who once championed him, mostly because he drove a truck while campaigning, his daughter was on American Idol and he had the ever-important “R” in front of his name.
