Marco Rubio - homophobe.jpgEquality Florida is asking fair-minded people to join them in a Twitterbomb targeting Marco Rubio, the junior United States Senator from Florida. His policy positions are #outoftouch in 2013. He'll have to evolve to be viable as a presidential candidate.

As a Floridian, let me apologize to the rest of the nation for our inexperienced junior US Senator and his bigoted homophobic rants against the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Just the other week, I wrote to GOP Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and encouraged her to slap down her fellow lawmaker from Miami.

I wish Ros-Lehtinen, who was once a teacher; would make Rubio stand in the corner wearing a dunce cap for his blatant hatred of LGBT-people. Ros-Lehtinen has not yet responded to my plea. On a personal note, I hope Ileana joins us in this Twitterbomb to her junior and less experienced colleague Rubio.

Sen Rubio went on a homophobic bender, opposing ENDA and threatening to walk away from Immigration Reform if it protects gay couples. Help make sure he hears that his words are wrong, heartless and #outoftouch by joining a Twitterbomb June 18th.

Participate in our twitterbomb at 3pm EST! We are using the hashtag #outoftouch

Equality Florida has provided us with some sample tweets after the jump.

Here are examples of tweets to send out. Just copy and paste!

Sen .@MarcoRubio 73% of voters support protecting gay & transgender ppl from workplace discrimination. #outoftouch

Sen .@MarcoRubio 67% of Floridians support immigration reform that keeps families together regardless of sexual orientation #outoftouch

Sen .@MarcoRubio your bigoted comments on ENDA & immigration regarding gayrights are #outoftouch w/ the view of the majority of Floridians.

Sen .@MarcoRubio, people should not be fired based on prejudice & who they love. #outoftouch

Rubio's insanity and lack of compassion are not limited to issues impacting LGBT-people. He is proud of the fact that his political success is largely due to his foundation that was building on his family immigrating to this country and his usage of the government funded programs that he aims to cut.

We have an opportunity to educate the electorate who are unfamiliar with the presumed GOP front runner before he kicks off his POTUS campaign.
