The co-founder of the Florida Tea Party says the local Republican Party in Broward County, Fla., is being taken over by gay “thugs.”

Danita Kilcullen complains that gay activists in the Log Cabin Republicans group have gained a stronghold in the local conservative movement and are pushing a progressive platform, and that she would never be forced to hire a “butch-looking female.”

Kilcullen make her remarks in an email in which she expressed her outrage over the U.S. Senate‘s passage of Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would bar workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

We must fight with all we have… We must put pressure on the House like has never been seen before.

I’ll be damned if I will ever be forced to hire someone with orange hair, body/neck/face covered with tattoos, multiple piercings, or a man in a dress… or for that matter, a demonstrative effeminate male or purposeful butch-looking female.

The Log Cabins are the same lobbyist organization that has all but taken over BREC (the Broward Republican Executive Committee) ; and besides that, we have someone on the Board of BREC who is using her position to openly put pressure on some BREC members to stand for same-sex marriage.

This is the same group who, based on nothing other than his recent stand for gay marriage, supports Chris Christie and who publicly worked against Cuccinelli for his stand for traditional marriage.

Keep in mind, this is a thug organization with only their own “special interests” in play. I wonder what they will do with democrat Charlie Crist now running for governor?

I’m betting on them to vote for Charlie, along with some other mousey republicans. I will now be accused of ‘splitting’ BREC. I am not! I am in standing with the Republican Platform, which is what I stated the very night I was sworn-on to BREC. We must stop this in short!

Kilcullen was responding to an email sent by Andy Eddy, in which he forwarded a press release from the national chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans praising the Senate’s approval of the legislation.
