Gay Businessman Who Hosted Cruz Event Apologizes

Ian Reisner, one of the two gay hoteliers facing boycott calls for hosting an event for Senator Ted Cruz, who is adamantly opposed to same-sex marriage, apologized to the gay community for showing “poor judgment.”

Mr. Reisner put the apology on Facebook, where a page calling for a boycott of his properties, the gay-friendly OUT NYC hotel and his Fire Island Pines holdings, had gotten more than 8,200 “likes” by Sunday evening.

“I am shaken to my bones by the emails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days. I made a terrible mistake,” wrote Mr. Reisner.

The Gaystapo has helped Mr. Reisner see the error of his ways. Let that be a lesson to others. Do not stray from the righteous path. If you do, recant, and beg for mercy!

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.”

    So let me get this straight……Christian business owners are supposed to have tolerance for gays and same sex couples, but gay business owners should have none for Christians and/or conservatives??? Oh wait, hypocrisy is just SOP for the gaystapo and the left…..silly me, nothing to see here move alone.

    Slightly OT, but only slightly. There is a case here in Florida involving same sex divorce. Florida doesn’t recognize same sex marriage so this thing is getting bounced around, but the appellate court just ruled that the lower court MUST hear the divorce case. I have a feeling this case may end up setting some precedents with an eventual SCOTUS ruling.

    The two women were married in Massachusetts and then moved to Florida. They have a child to boot, the article I read didn’t say which one was the biological mother. One of the women is using the anti same sex marriage laws in Florida to block the other woman from divorcing her. This is the first case I’ve heard of like this.

    • elliesmom says:

      I’m not sure how she could use the anti-same sex marriage laws to prevent her partner from divorcing her. Laws against same-sex marriage would say they were never married in the first place. Wouldn’t that be playing into her partner’s hands? Not legally married would let her just walk away.

      • votermom says:

        Maybe that’s it -divorcing would probably allow some custody. If it’s the birth mother, then just walking away as never married and she gets sole custody.
        No law on earth will keep a couple together once one of them decides it’s over.

      • Lulu says:

        Paternity and maternity becomes an issue. The non-parent (non-maternity since a lesbian can’t be a sperm donor) gets thrown out of a relationship and requested to pay child (and maybe spousal) support if it is pre-adoption for the non biological parent. This is actually why some states say no (it is a big mess) rather than any animosity to gay marriage and adoption. Until a legal framework is worked out it is crazy sometimes and in no way fair.

    • Somebody says:

      Here is an article about it, apparently the biological mother is the one that was using the gay marriage ban law. She was claiming that basically if the state doesn’t recognize their marriage then they can’t sanction their divorce. Pam Bondi entered into it, but they lost on appeal.

    • Propertius says:

      Question for the great legal minds out there: why doesn’t the “full faith and credit” clause in the Constitution require states to recognize gay marriages performed in other states?

      • angienc says:

        Oh look Propertius rears his ugly head to prove what a dumbass he is!

        • Propertius says:

          Actually, it was an honest question from a non-lawyer, Angie. I’ve never understood why marriage doesn’t fall into the category of “public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state” referred to in the Constitution. I’m sure there’s a reason, but not actually being a lawyer I’ve never understood what that reason is. I was rather hoping that either you or the Klown might have an answer, but apparently you’re better at gratuitous insult than answering an honest question.

          I blame Twitter.

          • angienc says:

            Blame yourself, jackoff

          • Propertius says:

            Look, Angie, I have absolutely no clue where this is coming from. As far as I can recall, I’ve never insulted you and in fact usually agree with you on most things. So why the attitude? Do you have me confused with someone else?

    • angienc says:

      That is only according to these crazy militants who DO NOT represent most gay people

  4. elliesmom says:

    What do suppose the tipping point will be? And which way will it tip? Are we going to push back against those who would suppress anyone who even just listens to opposing viewpoints? Are we going to shut down debate entirely because all things are already settled, and it’s too risky to disagree? I really don’t know which way this will go, but I sense we’re going to find out sooner rather than later. The LGBT community is influential, but very small in numbers. If enough people are angry at being silenced and made to toe the line on LGBT issues, it’s a group that can be isolated and made an example of more so than other groups who have much larger numbers. Or maybe everyone will just roll over and give up?

    • Lulu says:

      My understand is that the shindig was about support for Israel and Cruz talking about that. Not gay marriage. If they are going to demand sexual politics over every other thing in people’s lives including their religion and/or ethnicity I think it will reach a breaking point sooner than later. Being pro-Israel is not being anti-gay as far as I know unless some new purity tests have been thought up.

      • elliesmom says:

        I’m not sure this is really about Cruz’s ideas about same-sex marriage as much as it is “Thou shalt not allow a Republican into your space.” Cruz is probably the Republican with the least anti-same-sex marriage views. He believes it’s not a federal issue, and states should be free to pass their own marriage laws. If the LGBT community manages to convince state legislatures or state courts to make same-sex marriage legal, then sobeit. They’ve been remarkably successful at it so far. I think it’s more about keeping these gay guys, especially ones with big money to donate, on the Democratic Plantation.

    • Propertius says:

      I consider this a microaggression. I insist that you stop writing forthwith, while I retire to my “safe space”.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    I applaud these gay gentlemen and Ted Cruz, and some others in attendance, to open their minds and hearts to each other. This was not a fundraiser or anyway an endorsement event of Cruz, it was simple communication of ideologies. It’s how we learn and evolve.

    What’s even sadder is the threat of boycotting an event that helps those suffering from aids. That’s just nasty “mean girl” blackmail. So sad.

  6. DandyTIger says:

    Off with his head. Wonder how far this insane lib cult will go? I sort of think they’ll keep upping the ante on punishment, and on the crazy in general. Those of you who have laid with a republican must have your eyes burned out, so saith the lord.

      That’s a really good question, DT. At what point will all of this crazy political correctness stop? I keep thinking that as the arguments unravel, common sense might prevail. That, however, doesn’t seem to be the case. So it becomes like the legend of the Gordian Knot….you just take a sharp sword and cut it in half…enough is enough. but as you think about it, the same big question prevails on a number of issues….what kind of government are people suggesting we transform into? How are we supposed to deal with ethnic diversity? How should controversial issues like abortion be dealt with? Seems like we are a society on the verge of huge transformation with any transformers!!!

  8. piper says:

    “Thanks to Jesse Walker for highlighting this clip. Because it’s amazing. If you don’t want to watch, it’s easy to explain: It’s a CNN host telling the audience to go f—k itself if they want to get news about riots in Baltimore, that they can check out local news reports or hop on Twitter to find out what was going on or wait until the morning. They were going to stick on “most powerful man in the world” who was going to tell some (awful) jokes.

    The problem, of course, is that anyone with the capability of changing the program at CNN was, in all likelihood, at the dinner itself. As was much of the on-air talent, I’m sure. But the decision is galling nonetheless. And it’s a perfect example of why the rest of the country is so sick of Washington, so hateful toward the press corps. Nobody outside the Beltway gives a good goddamn about our homeless man’s Oscars. Why should they? And if they do, they can watch the damn thing on CSPAN! You know what they can’t do on CSPAN? Watch breaking news from a city tearing itself apart, a city so fearful for its people that it’s locking them inside a baseball stadium while “outside agitators”* incite chaos.”

    When the breaking point does happen who will the pay the price?
    Not insular Hollywood or leftist academia with safe places. I think it will be the poorer kids from depressed areas where economics have created a lot of frustration and anger.

    Seems it is all directed at white Christians. HIstorically African American, Hispanic, Muslim groups are far less tolerant. Why have none of their businesses and lives been and businesses been shattered?
    Under attack are straight white Christian men from every angle. False narratives are embraced and excused if they fit the script. Quite startling.
    Please remember I do not believe the majority of gay people feel this way. It is a small percentage of a small percentage.

      Two reasons:

      1. They are members of historically oppressed groups

      2. They scare people.

  11. Falstaff says:

    I have a hard time seeing much of an issue here. People who despise Ted Cruz are free to voice their opinion and to call for a boycott of this guy’s business for his supporting Cruz. Nobody is being silenced, and it’s not like anybody burned the place down. If he’s unhappy about the boycott, he should have thought this through before agreeing to work with Cruz. If he was unaware of the potential fallout, then he’s probably an idiot and the business is not long for the world. He’s free to support any candidate he wants, and people are free to take their business elsewhere if they don’t like his candidate. Ho hum.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Nobody is being silenced

      Yes they are. That is the point.

      • swanspirit says:

        They are being silenced, and their actions influenced, also their incomes and their futures are being threatened.

          The syndrome is called My Way or the Highway. Voters spoke in 2014, and I hope they shake up the country in 2016. I’m no fan of either party, but I despise the current trend to silence opposing viewpoints.

    • elliesmom says:

      You obviously need your eyes checked if you can’t see where “If you even listen to someone we don’t agree with, we’ll put you out of business” is silencing people. Being “aware of potential fallout” means you must surrender to the bullies or take the beating without complaint. I think it’s time for giving the bullies a taste of their own medicine. Let’s seek out all of the people who own businesses who have campaigned in any way for Democrats and put them out of business. If Hillary Clinton goes to Chipotle, let’s close them down. No more visits to IHOP because they serve waffles. Doesn’t Obama like Five Guys? Shut ’em down.

        • lizzy says:

          The power of that idea was shown with attendance at American Sniper screenings, although it was buying not boycotting. Most movies are such garbage we probably couldn’t tell if they were being boycotted.

        Sociopaths rule right now, and they have many disciples aka. sheeple.

      • Falstaff says:

        I honestly don’t have a problem with any of those suggestions. I doubt that any such boycott would be any more effective than the failed boycotts of Chick-Fil-A or Hobby Lobby, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with seeking to achieve political goals through organized action. A highly polarized society is a byproduct of free markets and freedom of expression. I’m not bothered by the thought of conservatives and vile progs living, working, dining, shopping, etc. in entirely different non-overlapping circles.

        • elliesmom says:

          So a return to segregation, but this time based on political ideology instead of skin color? We could all have our gang colors so we’re easily recognizable? Well, given who has most of the guns and produces our food and energy, while I don’t always agree with them, I know which color I’m wearing. I’m not gay, I’m comfortable being the woman I was born to be, and it’s been awhile since needing an abortion was an issue for me. The “blue side” doesn’t have much to offer me, does it? And the “red side” doesn’t try to silence me, even if I disagree with them. They even understood why I campaigned for Hillary in 2008 and didn’t shun me afterwards.

          • Falstaff says:

            It’s self-segregation, not legally enforced segregation. It’s already pretty much a thing, no? You and I won’t be shopping at Whole Foods or drinking craft beers at a hipster bar, and the vile progs won’t be found at Walmart or Chick-Fil-A. There’s already a high level of residential segregation by race, income, and political ideology, and I expect the trend to continue. Frankly, I think everybody wins: neither side needs to bother interacting with the other; short of annihilating the vile progs, feminists, etc., our best hope is to live apart to keep annoyance at a minimum.

          • elliesmom says:

            I go to Whole Foods frequently. Elliesdad drinks craft beers. I’ve never been to Chik-Fil-A because the closest one is 25 miles away, but if I saw one and was hungry, I’d stop in. I do occasionally go to Wal-Mart, but there are other big box stores that are closer to home. So I guess that puts sort of in the middle, but more to the left than right? But only one side calls me names and wishes my mother had abortion rights in the 50’s.

        • lyn says:

          Armed with petitions, Bloomie’s Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in American have harassed those stores who allowed open carry, and the Special Snowflakes were telling everyone that they weren’t shopping in open-carry stores anymore. That’s self-segregation. I’ve shopped at Fred Meyer for more than 20 years, and I’ve never seen a non-law enforcement person with a gun.

        • Propertius says:

          I doubt that any such boycott would be any more effective than the failed boycotts of Chick-Fil-A or Hobby Lobby

          Or the failed boycotts of various national companies launched by the Moral Majority back in the 80’s, for that matter.

  12. swanspirit says:

    One of the main reasons I left Baltimore for the Eastern Shore was the beach. I absolutely love the beach. The other big reason was, at the time ; a friend of a friend was severely beaten with a baseball bat by a thief in a parking garage, adjacent to a shopping center I used to frequent , and that just seemed to loom large in my mind at the time.
    I am very upset at what is happening in Baltimore, but I am not surprised. And now Sharpton sees an opportunity , and is headed for Baltimore. If I am not mistaken, the full facts are not yet available on the death of Freddie Gray, but Sharpton sees an opportunity to create more chaos, so he is going. With a mayor who gives rioters “room to destroy” ( at the taxpayers expense) , why the hell not?
    I just hope my siblings, who still live there ; are avoiding this whole mess the best they can.

  13. threewickets says:

    From a gay progressive FB friend I respect:

    Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass are classic Human Rights Campaign homos. I realize it’s shocking to some to suddenly realize that wealthy and privileged gays would support a political figure like Ted Cruz. All I will say for now (more later) is that if you find yourself shocked by this, then maybe you need to rethink your politics. Or at least your support of the Human Rights Campaign.

    The classic Human Rights Campaign homo is wealthy, white, and male. He is more interested in who is performing at the annual fundraiser and having his marriage recognized (and the social currency, tax implications, and trusts and estates law privileges that go along with that) than in actual human rights, e.g., ensuring universal access to health care, a living wage, or dignity post-retirement for all people.

    • Lulu says:

      Or maybe they are Jews who are afraid Obama is going to give Iran the Bomb. That is what Cruz was there to talk about. The Bomb. Israel. Jews. Dead Christians in an ethnic cleansing of the Middle East. Not Obamacare. Not Social Security or stuff that first world prog people worry about. But dead people not hurt fee-fees.

    • mothy67 says:

      Maybe it has something to do with the initials HRC.

    • 1539days says:

      In other words, Republican trumps gay. I really think rich gays hurt themselves in 2012 when they let it be known that if Obama didn’t go their way on gay marriage, he wouldn’t get their money. Obama caved, but he did not forget. So his minions and other progs are going to make sure that leverage can’t be used again. If you are gay and don’t support Democrats, you are somehow a gay dilettante. Let the reeducation begin.

    • angienc says:

      Except they don’t “support” Ted Cruz — they TALKED to him.
      They “support” HRC — per the actual FUNDRAISER they had for her last month (the dinner they hosted to talk to Cruz wasn’t a fundraiser).

    Clinton’s Charity Only Spends 10% of Its Billions on Actual Charity
    It does seem to spend an awful lot of money on “other” expenses, and lots of money for Clinton travel.

    Clinton Upkeep is apparently the “charity’s” main point. Indeed, it has long been alleged that this “charity” has always been chiefly a way to keep Hilary’s Government-In-Waiting on her payroll through 2000’s, until she could put them all on the official government payroll again.

    If you take a narrower, and more realistic, view of the tax-exempt group’s expenditures by excluding obvious overhead expenses and focusing on direct grants to charities and governments, the numbers look much worse. In 2013, for example, only 10 percent of the Clinton Foundation’s expenditures were for direct charitable grants. The amount it spent on charitable grants–$8.8 million–was dwarfed by the $17.2 million it cumulatively spent on travel, rent, and office supplies. Between 2011 and 2013, the organization spent only 9.9 percent of the $252 million it collected on direct charitable grants.

    Sean Davis goes through a very steep drop-off in actual charitable expenditures, and concludes:

    In just a few short years, the Clinton’s primary philanthropic project transitioned from a massive player in global pharmaceutical distribution to a bloated travel agency and conference organizing business that just happened to be tax-exempt.

    Over at Hot Air, Ed Morrissey reports that the head of the Sunlight Foundation calls the Clinton “charity” a “slush fund.”

    The Sunlight Foundation — a charity watchdog — sees the Clintons’ charity as mainly a charity for the Clintons.

      I found this old NYT article about Bill’s Harlem Office of a Former President which we pay for as a perk to all prezzys. He’s kept that, but has moved to a snazzier address downtown where I believe he moved his foundation. The new offices also include a penthouse for him. So I’m sure the CF takes care of those expenses. Not sure why he doesn’t headquarter in Arkansas where his library is ? Not close enough to the UN ?

I responded with my concerns about her behavior since 2008 and he told me this was just the typical right wing gossip that is being directed at her. Sorry, my info comes from research not right wing media (even stopped watching Fox several months ago). Before hanging up I thanked him for his call and wished him a pleasant day.
