Gregory T. Angelo is the President of the Log Cabin Republicans, the nation’s largest organization representing gay conservatives. He discusses how not all gay people subscribe to liberal groupthink, how and why the group was founded and named, and where he feels more discriminated against – amongst liberals or conservatives.
They discuss how the left gravitates toward identity politics vs. assimilation, and Angelo reveals which U.S. President has been the least friendly to the LGTB community, in terms of policies enacted while in office. Angelo shares his thoughts on radical Islam, American values and much more.
Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark talk about the left complaining about the Senate’s tax bill – while Mark explains some of the practical reasoning behind parts of the bill about which the left chooses to remain ignorant.
