Log Cabin Republicans Denounces Gay Stereotypes In A New Obamacare Ad
To ensure that the benefits of the Affordable Care Act reaches the LGBT communities, the Out2Enroll organization released a new ad to bring awareness to them. The ad produced by Full Frontal Freedom, features shirtless men dancing and celebrating the holiday to the “Get Enrolled” song, a parody of the “Let It Snow” song.
Despite the ad’s intention of encouraging the LGBT communities to enroll in Obamacare, the Log Cabin Republicans instead sees the ad promoting gay stereotypes. They were especially not happy about the hypocrisy of the ad, citing that liberals outraged over Phil Robertson‘s comments were not outrage by the gay stereotypes displayed in the ad.
The Log Cabin Republicans released the following statement denouncing the ad:
This cynical ad betrays the depths Obamacare advocates will sink to in order to pad their pathetic enrollment numbers,” Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo declared. “As a self-proclaimed ‘fierce advocate’ of gay equality, President Obama would do well to distance himself from this nonsense and denounce it immediately. This ad is also an example of the left promoting harmful stereotypes that gay men are nothing more than sex-crazed lechers. If anyone on the right made such a comparison, liberals would be apoplectic. At a time when left-wing propagandists are decrying Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson for equating homosexuality with promiscuity and deviance, Out2Enroll and others should take a look in the mirror and ask if the truth is that they are the ones responsible for promoting such harmful stereotypes.
