RNC Hate Website “Hope Isn’t Hiring” Disappears

Apparently the Republican Party website "Hope Isn't Hiring" has been removed, after HRC President Joe Solmonese wrote a letter last week condemning their attacks on LGBT progress. The website attacked President Obama's support of basic principles of fairness and equality for all Americans: “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal, hospital visitation, housing nondiscrimination and relationship recognition. In growing numbers, Americans from all walks of life support treating their LGBT family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors equally.

In Joe's letter to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, he blasted the party for resorting "to this demeaning fundraising stunt so that the red-meat crowd will become energized. The garbage on this website makes it quite clear that the party continues to misread the priorities of the American people. Hate is never a winning strategy.” If you visit the website now, it redirects you to the party's main page.
