I agree that it’s a cheap shot to go after constituencies based upon sexual preference:

Luz Elena Sanín, a member of the Popular Party, has been condemned for her “homophobic comments” after her controversial defence of the austerity measures introduced by Mariano Rajoy, the prime minister.
Mrs Sanín insisted that the measures were necessary to pay back the debt run up by the previous socialist government’s policy of “subsidising NGOs and homosexuals”.
She claimed that the government of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, the former prime minister, had forced the national debt to surpass a record €1?trillion (£800?billion) with “his favours” to the gay community.

My question has to do with their response:

Members of Spain’s opposition socialist party and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual groups have called her words “a breeding ground for homophobia”.

How would they recognize a breeding ground? #JustSayin
