When we reported about the Republican National Committee’s “Hope Isn’t Hiring” website, where they posted about Obama’s pro-gay “agenda,” we were actually excited that this was the direction the official governing body of the Republican Party was going. The increased radicalization is only good for those of us that range from moderate to liberal, because it just emphasizes how out of touch the GOP is.
Apparently, the slew of bad press was enough to make the GOP reconsider all the money and work they put into the Hope Isn’t Hiring concept: the website is gone. Visitors are redirected to the GOP’s main website, and the entire site is nowhere to be found (except, of course, cached by Google!).
Joe Solomnese, from the Human Rights Campaign, said, “Hopefully the Republican Party leadership has come to their senses and realized that attacking LGBT families offends the great majority of Americans. Polling overwhelmingly shows that Americans support LGBT equality and the Republican Party would be foolish to campaign on a platform based on discrimination and ignorance.”
