Openly gay presidential candidate Fred Karger (R-CA) sits down with Feministing to discuss his hopes for Presidency in 2012, the LGBT community, gay marriage, his views on feminism and how they differ from fellow Republican Sarah Palin and his idea for a renewed Republican Party. Yes, that’s right – Republican. However, taking a look at his stance on key issues, it’s hard to believe.
Karger is a self-identified “very strong feminist”, pro-choice and avid supporter of Planned Parenthood. He’s for the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as well as making the hunt for a cure to HIV/AIDS a national priority. So why is he running on the Republican bill, you ask? Take a look at the video to find out.
