Carl Nassib is a Registered Republican

He came out as GAY, not any other letter, but he's a Trumper.

I don't see how anyone can be happy about this except the Log Cabin Nazis.

I was a registered Republican when I came out at 21, OP.

It took the coming out process - and subsequent exposure to the realities of American politics - for me to switch parties. How about we treat this guy with even a tiny shred of grace and see how his life evolves as an openly gay man?

And if he remains a Republican, that's his choice. There are gay Republicans, after all, and if they're out and proud, they also contribute to the cause of visibility and diversity in the gay community.

So in other words, shut the fuck up.

The Republican party of 2021 is nothing like the Republican party of ten years ago. A majority of Republicans now approve of same-sex marriage. Far more Republican families, like Carl Nassib's, know they have a family member who is gay and are turning away from the anti-gay positions and rhetoric. And for those who haven't altered their opinions, maybe Nassib will begin a process for them to do so.

This is the problem with you Repubqunts, you think it's true if YOU feel like it is. YOUR beliefs don't matter, it's the actions of your congresscreatures. And they all support Trump.

From Wiki: In 2020, the Republican Party decided not to write a platform for that presidential election cycle,[113] instead simply expressing its support for Donald Trump's agenda[114] and criticizing "the media" for biased reporting.[115] This was cited by critics as an example of how the Republican Party "became a cult of personality".[116][117]

Any decent person would leave the party and be an Independent at least.

Many of you seem to be forgetting the massive shift the GOP is undergoing and the previous existence of the "Rockefeller wing" of socially liberal, fiscally conservative Republicans who mostly represented states in the Northeast.

Granted, their heyday seems to have been the 1970s, but the full shift to being the party of bigoted working-class whites has really only gone into overdrive since Trump, as witnessed by how the upscale suburbs have almost all turned blue--not just in presidential elections, but in who runs the various towns and counties.

Link to a great piece in Politico on how that shift is playing out in Oakland County, Michigan.

There is no good reason to vote Republican. Gay, straight, black, white, male, female. Whoever you are, voting Republican is an error in judgement. There is no actual real world problem that any Republican is interested in solving. All are simply whores for the rich and nothing else. Everything else is just whipping up hysteria to ensure that they can keep loyally serving the rich while getting morons to vote for them.

That said, Carl Nassib did a brave thing, and a good thing, in coming out. He's making a difference in a way that matters more than his silly politics, which hopefully he'll get over.

Trump had been in office for over 2 years by that point and DeSantis had been elected Governor the year before. So, regardless of what the Republican apologists claim, Nassib wasn't registering as a member of some Grand Old Party. He was registering as a member of the present day Trump-worshiping, white supremacist MAGA party.

[quote] It took the coming out process - and subsequent exposure to the realities of American politics - for me to switch parties.

That was then. It's a different world today. For 4 years, Trump and his GOP ass-kissers were everywhere -- on social media, on the TV news. EVERYTHING was about Trump. Everything was about politics. It was inescapable. Anyone who didn't have a pretty good idea what Trump and the GOP were all about by 2019 had to be living under a rock. Anyone in their mid 20s registering as a Republican in 2019 knew exactly what they were doing.

I'm not saying we should crucify him. It's still great that he came out and is donating money to the Trevor Project. And maybe his political views are changing or will change. But I have to laugh at all of the rationalizing by DataLoungers who, just because they think he's hot, claim that "Just because he's a registered Republican doesn't mean he's actually a Republican."

After college, I lived in DC for a few years. The first thing I learned was that a lot of the republican congressional staffers are gay gay gay. It's like the choir director at a black church. Everyone knows, but no one discusses it. And then one day the queeniest queen who ever queened shows up with a girlfriend/fiancé and no one bats an eyelash and no one talks about the big gaping hole in the middle of the room. It's a weird world and that is why I am not shocked that people like Carl Nassib and Colton Underwood are republicans. That party is filled up with them, but very few of them actually come out. Here a little tip, the best place to get dick in DC is not Grindr but the Republican Congressional Staffer Listserv.

It will be interesting to see what they do with the Republican voting record information if true, but that info will have to be published in some news article for them to absorb it. Random twitter posts and pictures about his possible MAGA tendencies are not enough.

Not to troll but a lot of you sound very ignorant about the fundamentals of politics. Not only is it a little silly to dislike someone because omg they might support Trump, but assuming “Republican” is a stand-in for all the ills that plague the LGBTQ community is overly simplistic too.

For one thing, more than likely he’s a Republican because his parents were and that’s just who he identifies with. That’s not super profound but believe it or not that’s how a lot of people view politics.

And to be honest I don’t know why people assume Democrats are the key to salvation for the LGBTQ community just because they’re nominally more supportive.

Democrats have shown they’re not necessarily willing to die on a hill over LGBTQ issues any more than Republicans. They pander to gays to insulate their political power the same way they do racial minorities. Which, going back to my theory about his parents, if you’re gay but already inclined to be center-right in your views, I can see why you would readily identify as a Democrat because they’re not exactly full-throated allies either.

Geography matters. Niche social issues are important, but what about all the other stuff that politicians do that have nothing to do with your sexual orientation or gender identity. Are places where there’s a Democratic stronghold necessarily better run or safer? At best you can say not necessarily, st worst you can say hell no.

Also, for many of you to hate Trump so much, it’s funny that he’s probably the least on-brand Republican President in our lifetime. Not super religious, not really into fighting culture wars, not really into legislating morality. But yet you guys hate him more than your standard issue Republican. You have to be mature that yes politicians are going to say and do things you may not like, but appreciate the wins where you can get them.

However, from the Defense of Marriage Act to demonizing Critical Race Theory, Republicans can't resist embracing some reprehensible social view that makes it hard to embrace their party.

I don't believe the Democrats are the saviors of LGBT people and sometimes I wish I didn't have to hold my nose whenever I vote.

I am a moderate democrat. Before Trump, I never really cared all that much about how others vote, because while we had policy disagreements we were all still playing from the same playbook regarding some basic rules of how we're supposed to do this.

Then Trump became president and they went along with the first lie, then the second lie and then the third lie and so forth and so on. Then they spent 4 years of just going along with the lies and not caring what was being done to the institution.

Then the election happened. Then 1/6 happened. Then state legislatures started fucking with voting rights. And now the Senate republicans have blocked legislation to protect voting.

And while some of that is not that big of deal to some of you. It is a big deal to some others. The fight is no longer about liberals and conservatives. It's about living in a democracy (even with all it's flaws) versus an oligarchy.

I'm not R203 but yes we know all that R217. Dump is appalling. Haven't got a single good word to say about him or the GOP. He can't die soon enough for my liking. That will be the only way we finally get rid of him and his influence.

But why is all of that Nassib's fault? There STILL hasn't been any evidence posted on DL that proves Nassib is a Dump supporter and agrees with his policies. For that matter - I haven't seen any evidence on DL that he votes GOP either.

And before you start shrieking - I hadn't even heard of Nassib until the other day. If he's a Dump supporter then post the evidence so that we can be properly informed and give him the same treatment as the Cock Gobbler. With Schock - we factually know exactly what he stood for and what he did. He deserves the treatment we give him.

But all I'm seeing is a lot of fact-free, over-emotional postings about something which is solely assumed and imagined. If there is proof then post it right away. Don't delay. It will immediately shut people like me up.

You're never going to find that evidence. None of us DataLoungers were with him at the polls when he voted. But he registered as a Republican in 2019, three years into Trump's presidency, and by that time, the GOP was in lockstep with Trump on everything. Trump was the GOP, and the GOP was Trump. He didn't have to choose a party when he registered, but he did. He chose the Republican Party. He saw what Trump and the GOP stood for and said, "That's my party."

And if you want to continue, the Trump administration did its worst with trans--banning trans from the military, supporting banning trans from competitive sports, not allowing the VA to provide transition surgery, supporting anti-trans bathroom bills, etc,

Trump and the GOP worked hard to divide the LGBT coalition by focusing its most public ire on trans---and it convinced some gays (as seen by the anti-trans trolls on DL) to go along...which of course is exactly the point.

GOP Platform: “That same provision of law is now being used by bureaucrats — and by the current President of the United States — to impose a social and cultural revolution upon the American people by wrongly redefining sex discrimination to include sexual orientation or other categories.”

GOP Platform: “We reject the use of the military as a platform for social experimentation and will not accept or continue attempts to undermine military priorities and mission readiness.”

GOP Platform: “We endorse the First Amendment Defense Act, Republican legislation in the House and Senate which will bar government discrimination against individuals and businesses for acting on the belief that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.”

He came out of the closet now because he saw some benefit to it--it could be that he was going to be outed. It could be (as many homophobes charge) that he though it would help him stay on the team as it'll be harder to fire someone who makes history by coming out. He made sure it was a splash.

That's great. So now that he has taken this major step to come out publicly, he needs to continue this journey and reflect on his actions.

This means reflecting on what kindness and compassion means and who and what advances those ideals and principles. So let's give Carl Nassib a bit of time and space. However, I hope in his awakening that Carl Nassib realizes none of this matters if he is going to associate with or be a member of the motherfucking Repig party.

R310. "We" did not cancel Dr. Seuss. In fact, no one on the outside canceled anything or pressured anyone within the Dr. Seuss organization. Instead, the Seuss Foundation decided itself that there were a few selected books among the Dr. Seuss collection that should be withdrawn from circulation in light of today's standards on cultural and societal norms and considerations.

R297. I hope Nassib hears the criticism about his Repig membership and support. I don't hold out a lot of hope, but let's see if responds and changes his affiliation. Even someone like Nassib who took this big and public step to come out needs to educated. For someone who comes across as sincere and concerned particularly given his donation to the Trevor Project, I don't buy that he doesn't know what his association with the Repig party means especially toward gay youth.

If Nassib stays affiliated with the Repig Party, then he's not all that different than hypocritical asshole Caitlyn Jenner, although Jenner probably never made a donation to any gay charitable organization.

by Anonymousreply 313June 24, 2021 12:52 AM

R312. If the Seuss Foundation felt the pressure in light of what's going on today--and then responded favorably, then I guess that's progress. However, the Foundation was not protested against or called upon to withdraw a few books from its collection. The Seuss Foundation acted on its own.

Keep in mind, while the Repugs like to say "Dr. Seuss was canceled," it is not true and it's misleading. Only a few selected books from the Dr. Seuss collection were withdrawn from circulation. The rest of the Dr. Seuss vast collection of books remains intact and available for all to read and enjoy.

[italic]Snopes has checked official, reliable voter registration data from Nevada and Florida, and can confirm that Nassib is indeed registered to vote as a Republican, and has been in at least two states, since May 2019 at the latest. We are therefore issuing a rating of “True.”[/italic]

Sure, accepting gays is ascendant but that's because society has and the GOP better come along or become obsolete. One day, the GOP will even start accepting blacks.

R459, as every good publicist know, you must have the support of your own community before getting the support of everyone else.

His coming out and donating with a splash was an effort to get the support of the LGBT community. Once we had his back, he could move on to gain the acceptance of the world. But, that backfired with his MAGA pictures.

Sure there may be many Republicans but the real conservatives will hate him immediately because he’s gay. No one will defend him. It doesn’t matter if he’s a football player. It’s the same with, say Caitlyn. Without LGBT support, she flounders around looking for a base. She’s hated by everyone

by Anonymousreply 461July 17, 2021 11:49 AM

So basically unless you are the right type of gay you shouldn't come out because you will only be supported if you fit the mold.

And in this case we are talking about someone who has zero scandals apart of being a republican.- It's not exactly a message of inclusiveness, specially because the number of homophobic democrats is not that small (the position of the party is not always the positiion of the polititian) and most of them were not even that supportive not so long ago.

I could understand that type of reaction if there were something more

[quote] I could understand that type of reaction if there were something more

🙄 Get real. This is not that difficult. In November 2020 he was gay, albeit closeted, and he voted for tRump. Listed below is a compilation of the tRump-Pence attacks on and outright hostility toward the LGBTQ+ community. As a then closeted gay man he was perfectly OK with all of this. He either endorsed it implicitly or he just didn’t care. Whatever the reason, he has to live with that decision, and the rest of the community is clearly not ready to give him a pass for supporting Cheatolini just because he’s the first active NFL player to come out.

[quote] specially because the number of homophobic democrats is not that small

A spurious claim. “Not that small.” What does that even mean? Numbers? Names? Plus, I’m not sure why or how this whataboutism is relevant to Nassib. We are talking about the here and now — not reaching back 20+ years for equivocating statements about marriage equality by Obama or the Clintons, all of whom have moved into the “strongly support” column. tRump and Pence are still as anti-gay today as they were last year or in 2016.

Coming out does not automatically grant Nassib absolution for his past transgressions against a community that he now claims that he wants to embrace.

Yes, voting for Trump was stupid, but millions of americans did it and i suppose not all were that terrible.

And saying he donated to the Trevor project to clean his image is absurd because there's nothing to clean and if he was that worried he could have stay in the closet

R463 Do you really need the names of democratic representatives that are less than fine with gays? because the number is not that small. In some parts of the country it's quite difficult to diferenciate the candidates.

I hate Trump more than the next person, but this guy was not publicly Republican. He is not a Herman Cain or Caitlyn Jenner. So he registered as a Republican and probably for Trump. So did many people. He obviously grew up in a conservative household, plays a sport dominated by conservatives (at least the white contingent).

I have absolutely no idea what he thought of the insurrection or anything else. For all I know, he may now regret his vote. The important thing is that he has the balls to come out while on a roster, not after retirement, not as a lame attempt to get on a team's roster, but while he's an active player. He didn't have to do that and he will probably suffer to a degree for doing that (homophobia from teammates, players for other teams, fans). And now we know that he's also not a fame whore. In fact, his own statement (pre-Republican revelations) said that he won't be doing interviews and will concentrate on football.

Your "us and them" mentality for someone who hasn't said a political word publicly is OTT. It also doesn't help people who don't toe the "acceptable gay" line in some way but still want to come out.

That’s very nice, but that is not the same calculation that the overwhelming majority of people have to make with regard to Nassib. He’s not our friend, family member, neighbor, or coworker. We don’t know him. He came out, and to the extent that he wants or expects our support, we look at what he’s done. So far, all we can see is that he made what appears to be a “save-my-ass” donation to the Trevor Project AND aligned himself with the party that is antithetical to Trevor’s work. That’s it. This is not simply an “oh, well,” situation — no big deal. That is reserved things like people who want pineapple on their pizza, not for people who supported tRump, the Repukes, and their hateful agenda, no matter how “nice” 🙄 they are.

If the only thing I know about you is that you supported tRump, that would be a gigantic hurdle and nearly impossible to overcome.

It will interesting to hear him explain all of this — if he even cares to — when he finally sits down for an interview.

R530, there were Jews that Suporter and actively worked with the Nazi’s until they found themselves living under the same conditions that their Jewish friends. There is always going to be people that vote against their own interests, from poor whites to black and brown voters. The black and brown people that voted for Trump are POS that feel comfortable in their place in the world and get a kick out of Trump’s authoritarian trolling of others. They bought into the bullshit. Yes, black and brown people can be racist. Where the fuck did you hear otherwise?

"I'm a liberal Democrat, but..."

"I hate Trump as much as anyone else, but...."

Frankly, this discussion wouldn't still be happening here, at this intensity, if this guy wasn't a 6'7" 'HAWT' football player. But at least it's finally being admitted to, 500+ posts into thread #3 or #4 about him. It's really not that much different from those who find Cockgobbler Aaron Schock an 'inspiration' because he has big muscle titties (that are beginning to sag, but that's besides the point....).

He came out, and made his donation to a gay charity, to slow his inevitable slide into real estate or car dealership. He’ll now land a lower-level, front office job in the NFL. Good for him for taking care of himself but damn if I’m going to cheerlead for this limp quisling. I marched in too many actual pride marches for that bullshit.

Someone who voted for Trump in 2016 because they naively thought "at least he's better than Hillary" made a mistake.

Someone who registered as a Republican on Election Day in November 2020, after watching what Trump and the the current version of the GOP did to gays and the country at large for 4 years, made a conscious decision to align themselves with bigotry and stupidity.

Of course he wants to gives interviews. The whole point, as shown by his donation, way to gain some notoriety from the announcement.

And then his MAGa connections became known so his publicity handlers immediately pulled back until the hullabaloo died down. This is classic public relations

R546, so Nassib was psychic and said he will not do interviews in his original statement posted to Instagram before any Trump connections were revealed? Genius. Anyway, he can easily do friendly interviews with sports journalists who would be very sympathetic. Even if they brought up the alleged Trump vote (doubtful, as the only proof we have is that he's a registered Republican), he could say that he's not a political figure and, like any other private citizen, will not talk about his private vote. Not hard to do.

by Anonymousreply 549July 26, 2021 7:28 PM

Exactly. We don't know he voted for Trump. He may very well have registered as a Republican on Election Day because he wanted to vote for Biden.

I don't always understand gay republicans, but I respect their right to vote however they see fit. I have zero respect for gay Trump voters (who I consider a little bit different than regular gay republicans) but you can't save stupid.

But what I'm curious about is are there some of you who are checking voter registration cards before spreading your legs? There's a hot guy ready to mix up your guts with his big dick, but you say, "but first, before you stick it in let's talk about your voting history."

And finally, white football players tend to be conservative and republican. Even the gay ones.

by Anonymousreply 551July 26, 2021 11:24 PM

Obviously he did, R550, but no sports journalist is going to say "so you registered as a Republican. Did you vote for Trump?" I don't get the morons who think that he's hiding from interviews because his voter registration records are public. Unless he decides to interview with Out, this will never come up. He hasn't said a word about politics. ESPN would not bring it up. The reason he's not being interviewed is that he never had any intention (for the time being) to be interviewed. Instead of being the next "sideshow Michael Sam," wants to continue playing without distraction. I'm sure he'll be interviewed eventually.

R552, that’s hilarious.

He came out publicly and gave $1 mill to a charity for kids…for a reason. To gain publicity and likely hope to not be cut by his team. He’s actually not that great a player so is worried what his prospects are. This was a way to get into the headlines

Every step he’s taken has been calculated and guided by professional handlers. He’s just doing what they say. The MAGA posts and the voting record caught the handlers off guard. He was planning a more public coming out.

by Anonymousreply 556July 27, 2021 3:21 AM

What MAGA posts, R556? You mean a photo posted on someone else's Instagram where one of the people was wearing a MAGA shirt? So now he's responsible for what others are wearing and posting?

Also, what $1M for a kids' charity? Why are you making shit up?

He's not getting cut by the Raiders because they signed him a year ago to a $25M, 3 year deal (which means he is in fact a good player but not necessarily a super star). If they cut him now, they have to pay him a guaranteed $10M on his way out. If they keep him, they have to pay him $4.5M for this season. Would you cut him right now and pay an extra $5.5M for nothing?

by Anonymousreply 557July 27, 2021 3:30 AM

R557, I did make a mistake—he gave $100k to a kids charity, not $1 mill.

And one of his close friends, with whom he is in a lot of pictures, is, in other pictures, waving a huge Trump flag at some rally.

Yes, Nassib is a Republican who voted for Trump and hangs around with MAGA Types.

And no, he’s actually not that good a player and three years will be up pretty soon.

Let’s not do flips trying desperately to spin this in a way that is palatable to the gay community. Why doesn’t he (and you) just admit and own it. By not addressing the elephant in the room, he comes across as a coward.

by Anonymousreply 558July 27, 2021 3:46 AM

R558, considering this is his 6th year in the NFL, he's already passed the average NFL career span (3 years) even if he's cut tomorrow. I also don't care what one of his friends did. His friend is not him.

As was explained in one of the earlier threads, he likely registered as a Republican because he is disgusted by Trump and Trump's supporters, and he wants to do his part to defeat the MAGA cult by voting for more moderate Republicans in future Republican primaries. It makes perfect sense.

I have been a registered Republican for the last 46 years. I have been a lifelong Democrat. When I moved to the area that I live in I was told to register Republican because of the area and if I ever needed local politicians help I probably wouldn't get it if registered Democrat. I have never bothered to change it because I get to vote out R's that I don't like at all in the primaries. I also get all the crap mail from the R's and can see what they are doing. The last time anyone came for me to sign for someone to run for something I have apologized and told them I am really A Democrat. the look on their faces is priceless.
