Speak ‘Merican, Sen. Lindsey Graham, Not Gay

Play Youtube Video

“Shutup, Bill Clinton! Shutup!”

“You are not the government! The Constitution is the government!”

There are so many clunky propaganda techniques and hideous exclamation point-laden quotes in this speech by William Gheen, head of anti-illegal immigration group ALIPAC. It’s amazing. But if you skip to about 7:15, you’ll reach this scuzzy bit of homophobia:

“Sometimes I wonder what it would take to make a person sell their own country out like that. ... Today, I think Sen. Graham, you need to come forward and tell people about your alternative lifestyle and your homosexuality.”

Yes. The thin veil of an excuse for this “outing” is that a disgusted Gheen doesn’t want Sen. Graham, a conservative from South Carolina, to be manipulated with his secret.

It is beyond me why anyone would buy Gheen’s B.S. Sadly, we all know that no matter how this plays out, just speculating that Graham is gay is enough to make it fact—and somehow relevant fact?—for plenty of voters in his district.

But I guess not all tea partiers are bad. Read Maren Tarro’s excellent feature this week. Our brave reporter went to the tea party protests in Washington, D.C., on tax day wearing a homemade “Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Liberal” T-shirt.
