This is a real head scratcher. Do you think Texans are still going to endorse this ‘GOP’ candidate when they find out about his support for gay pride?
Questions were raised at a candidate forum in Lubbock, Texas, about West Texas conservatives lining up behind a GOP candidate for Congress who actively and recently supported, promoted, and participated in gay pride events. The candidate, Colonel Bob Starr, can be seen in a number of photos wearing gay pride clothing, throwing his arms in the air as a champion in gay pride runs, and even wearing a rainbow painted gay pride shirt.
A long list of West Texas conservatives who have endorsed the active promoter of gay rights can be found on Col. Starr’s campaign website, though it is unclear whether they are aware of Starr’s gay activism due to Starr not mentioning it on any of his campaign materials.
During a VFW congressional candidate forum in Lubbock Friday night, Jason Corley, Republican candidate for CD19, asked about why we are supporting gay rights at Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene. The question appeared to have been aimed at fellow candidate, retired Air Force Colonel Michael Bob Starr. Colonel Starr was formerly commander of the 7th Bomb Wing at Dyess AFB, according to his official USAF biography.
Starr did not address the question which came at the very end of the forum, Corley told Breitbart Texas in an interview. He asked it because he is concerned about the military being used for social engineering. He said he also asked about the possibility of women being required to register for the draft and why taxpayers should be required to fund gender selection surgeries for transgender people serving on active duty.
