Remember, these are the same people who still whine about Joseph McCarthy.
The backlash continues to rage in the gay community over OUT NYC Hotel owners Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass meeting with GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, who is strongly opposed to same-sex marriage.
Weiderpass was kicked out of Fire Island Pines venue Sip-n-Twirl on Sunday after he was confronted by furious patrons over his affiliation with Cruz.
Customer Evan Lobel said, “One guy got up and asked him what the rationale was to have dinner with Cruz. They got kind of heated and before you knew it, there was a lot of people yelling.” We’re told owner P.J. McAteer asked them to leave the bar and threatened to call police.
“Upon their departure, the crowd cheered,” Lobel posted on Facebook.
Another source added: “This was strictly between P.J. and Mati.”
Weiderpass said in a statement, “P.J. McAteer is condemning me for what he perceives as my thoughts and beliefs by asking me to leave a venue open to all. As small-minded as that is, I have been and will always be an advocate for LGBTQ issues.”
Reisner and Weiderpass hosted a “fireside chat” with Cruz in April, and Reisner later admitted to making a $2,700 donation to the candidate’s campaign and has since asked for the money back.
That’s not enough. He must suffer for the rest of his life for daring to show independence and not marching in lockstep with these fascists.
