The Texas State Democratic Party bowed to fear this past week when the Executive Committee met to vote on proposed primary ballot referendum. In a move that silenced one of the most staunch populaces aligned with the Democratic Party, the LGBTQ community, Texas Democrats voted 33-22 to exclude a marriage equality referendum on the 2012 Democratic Primary ballot.
Dan Ramos, the Chair of Bexar County Democrats, representing the Democratic party in the City of San Antonio, Texas, and surrounding areas, recently went on a racist and homophobic tirade:
“[Gays] are all connected to the gay Democratic Party, the so-called Stonewall Democrats. Just like termites they managed to get some of their people in key positions. … I liken them to the Tea Party — the Tea Party and the f—ing Nazi Party — because they’re 90 percent white, blue-eyed, and Anglo, and I don’t give a f— who knows that. Just like the blacks … they’re American, but you can’t get your way just because you’re black.”
