Snyder people condemn Goat Killer's latest anti-gay tirade

You've probably seen this already, so I'm sharing for posterity.

While Agema wrote to Republicans today that his words were "twisted" by the Herald Palladium reporter, Snyder Press Secretary Sara WURFEL joined Republicans and Democrats alike speaking out against the comments.

"What I'd say, plainly and simply, is that the Governor believes Mr. Agema's remarks are wrong, extreme and discriminatory," Wurfel said. "We shouldn't tolerate discrimination of any kind. There shouldn't be room for that in any political party, period."

While it's great that our benevolent overlord Rick Michigan has decided to show up and demonstrate a little leadership on the issue, it has to be asked, "Where the Hell was this benevolent overlord Rick Michigan two years ago and again earlier this year." And, of course, as Equality Michigan's Emily Dievendorf pointed out yesterday, no one was under any illusions who Goat Killer was when he was elected to the post of national committee representative.

This is great, but it's a first step. And, it should have been taken years ago.

Translation: "It's not what he said, it's how he said it."

At the end of the day, this is still the same governor who signed laws taking away benefits from gay state employees and the same one who hasn't come out in favor of marriage equality.  As I was told in no uncertain terms, today, it's not what you believe, it's what you do.  Snyder does believe in discrimination of this kind; his administration has shown that time and time again.  

His record on a whole host of issues is little different than that of a Mississippi governor, but people seem to be more comfortable if you call yourself a nerd and do it in the background.  This makes him worse, to me.  He's disingenuous.
