Respect for the president is so eighties: Gay activists flip off Reagan portrait!/missfidget/status/213855073426620416

Reaction has begun to this photo posted on Twitter by Zoe Strauss, a self-proclaimed “lesbian anarchist” who toured the White House last week.

The Weekly Standard has the details of the official White House gay pride event last Friday.

Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.

Some of Zoe Strauss’ radical compatriots are even reveling in her demeaning conduct at the White House.

Fun pix from Zoe at the White House today! RT @zoestrauss: Me and LB making out in front of an oil painting of Reagan:

Zoe herself seems to hint that her vulgar display of disrespect will garner some attention from the current White House occupant.

Conservatives who admire former President Reagan are justifiably outraged at this gross display of hubris.

GAY ACTIVISTS INVITED TO WH 'FLIP OFF' REAGAN PORTRAIT. I cannot wait for a Prez in the WH who LOVES & respects this country. #mitt2012

So I guess Dan Savage cloned himself multiple times, visited the WH and flipped off a portrait of Reagan. #tcot

The same people flipping off Reagan portraits are demanding "respect for the office" when Obama is asked a question.

Not only do we have a president who seems to disrespect the nation’s wishes, but even his supporters show their hatred and disdain of this country’s history and the man who even many Democrats say was the best president in their lifetime.

There is no word yet on whether or not Zoe’s request to Barack Obama included pleas for free birth control.


As’s Mike Flynn points out, Ronald Reagan was a strong proponent of gay rights.

These vicious Reagan-haters might want to do a little research next time they decide to pull such a pathetic, tasteless stunt.
