Gay GOP presidential candidate Fred Karger ends campaign; posts 'Stop the Hate' video aimed at Mormon Church

Statement by gay GOP Presidential candidate Fred Karger:


LAGUNA BEACH, CA - “After 2 ½ years of campaigning as a candidate for President of the United States I am officially ending my historic campaign today June 29, 2012. It’s been one hell of a ride, and I want to thank the thousands of people across this country who volunteered, contributed, opened their homes, came to our events and cheered me on. Special thanks to the thousands more who shared their stories with me in person, via email, facebook, twitter, etc. Every one of you kept me going.

It’s been the experience of a lifetime. I’ve made many new friends and undoubtedly picked up a few more detractors. I hope and trust that my discussion of the key issues helped to open dialog on fixing the economy, balancing the federal budget, creating jobs, education reform, the environment, immigration reform, ending the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and fighting for full equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. We must move forward on these issues and many more.

A big thank you goes out to our incredible campaign team, most of whom have been around for nearly the entire 2 ½ years. Your dedication, spirit and great ideas made all the difference.

I plan to rest up for awhile and then I will be back at it to help in the fight for LGBT equality. We will let you know as soon as our exact course is determined.

We closed our Utah Primary campaign with a big bang by airing the hard-hitting commercial “STOP THE HATE!!!” aimed at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church). It was produced and directed by Melanie Marden of MM Films, LLC.

I don't like Republican ideology but I respect what Fred was trying to do... If there are any Gay Republicans who can't stomach voting for Romney, we gladly welcome you with open arms at the Obama campaign!

@ Jarret Terrill

If there is any Republican regardless of orientation that wants to vote of Obama then they are not a Republican but a RINO, and on top of that quite naive.

Obama is still against gay marriage just as he is still deporting more illegals than any other administration in US history. The press conferences are simply more lies to get you simple minded sheep in line because Obama knows that come November that he is going to get a pink slip from the American Public.

So Fred finally suspended his crusade against the LDS Church . . . oops I mean campaign for President of the LDS Church . . . oops I meant for President of the United States of America.

It shows how low LGBT will sink to promote a terrible human being like Fred Karger whom spread a hate message filled with lies in order to get himself attention.

Does it tell you guys anything that he lost his electoral website domain because he was violating his contract with the domain host by posting fraudulent data and materials against the LDS Church (the contract specifically said the sites were to be used for factual information about his campaign only).

Kager is a hate monger and a hypocrite, of course that means he fits right in with GLBT since that is how GLBT organizations across the nation are run, by hate mongering and hypocrisy.

Sad that he promotes hatred against Mormons with misleading misinformation.
