Log Cabin Republicans blast ObamaCare enrollment video

Log Cabin Republicans is blasting a new video the advocacy organization says exploits stereotypes to encourage gay men to enroll in ObamaCare.

“This cynical ad betrays the depths Obamacare advocates will sink to in order to pad their pathetic enrollment numbers,” Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo said in a statement released Sunday. “As a self-proclaimed ‘fierce advocate’ of gay equality, President Obama would do well to distance himself from this nonsense and denounce it immediately.”

Log Cabin Republicans, which represents gay conservatives and allies, is targeting an ad posted on YouTube last week by Out2Enroll, a coalition of organizations working to make sure access to affordable, comprehensive health insurance reaches LBGT communities.

Out2Enroll calls the video a holiday parody that aims to bring awareness in the run up to the deadline to enroll and have coverage being on Jan. 1.

Angelo said the ad is 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,” Angelo added.

“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,” he said.
