Two weeks ago I posed the question "What's with Republicans and their repressed sex drives?" In response, I got the following email from a conservative independent who gave me permission to reprint it without attribution:
"There were/are a lot of closeted gay Republicans in and around the Ralph Reed crowd. I did two semesters at (Falwell's) Liberty University after leaving the University of Georgia. There were so many more gays at tiny LU than at the 30,000 student UGA! A lot of them at LU were really creepy too. I had friend who refused to live on campus because of all the predatory gay dorm leaders and prayer group leaders.Maybe you know about a school or organization where this type of behavior is allowed to flourish. If so, I'd like to hear from you. Post a comment or click on EMAIL US at the left of this post (sixth item down from the top.)
"One of the main reasons I didn't stay there long was due to how they handled that situation. Basically, if someone complained about a homosexual on campus, they would bring both people in and try to convince the complainant that it he or she was mistaken. Only once the situation became un-cover-up-able, like after repeated complaints, would they really confront the gay guy. Then, he would "repent" and cry and beg forgiveness, and everyone would gather around him supporting his great Christian conversion. Folks would kind of keep an eye on him for a month or two, and then it was back to business as usual.
"However, if a guy was caught fooling around with his girlfriend, he (sometimes both of them, but girls are viewed as more innocent) would be kicked out! They viewed pre-marital sex as a horrible sin, but homosexual sex as a moral failing that required prayer and counseling to bring the person back into he fold. Frankly, I think they just didn't want anyone to find out their school is a giant closet for Baptist and Pentecostal gays. Of course, the Ralph Reed crowd, Leadership Institute and all of the Republican organizations recruit big time out of Liberty and Regent. It totally fits the pattern."
More from my email friend:
"I think a lot of kids are dumb and are easy prey for a few predators. In an atmosphere like that, any misstep can be held over someone to keep them silent. I heard about a guy who was caught drinking, and was gradually blackmailed into a gay group. All I know is that people are human and make mistakes. The problem arises when it is a leader who will lie and hurt others to keep from being found out. Also, when it is a congressman or senator, that opens the door for major security risks."Now, Patrick McHenry didn't attend Liberty University. But a variety of sources have described this kind of behavior as the norm among him and his closest advisers. Recently murdered Republican political operative Ralph Gonzalez worked with Ralph Reed in Georgia. Accused shooter Jason Robert Drake has been tied to an escort service in Virginia Beach. Ralph Gonzalez reportedly consulted with McHenry on his 2004 campaign. Drake reportedly worked on several small North Carolina campaigns in McHenry's 10th District.
Basket of Puppies has compiled a shockingly long list of Republican sex criminals and other offenders.
This is more info from my post of two weeks ago:
In July, MySpace kicked out 29,000 Republican perverts.And here's more background on the suicide/murder:
Yeah. Here's the July 25th story. I thought it was a joke like this other FruitFly post on GOP importing prostitutes for the 08 convention. (And maybe that one is not a joke!) But, no, the MySpace story is in the freakin' Christian Post. And NC's own Roy Cooper leads the charge:So maybe it's time to probe deeper. I mean, look at Larry Craig and read the endless stories of Republican Sex Offenders, like North Carolina's own Coy Privette and David Almond, and don't forget Pat McHenry's friend, the National College Republican Chair Glenn Murphy, who likes to give blow jobs to sleeping heterosexual acquaintances.
MySpace.com has found and removed more than 29,000 sex offenders with profiles on the popular social networking site, according to state officials on Tuesday.
The newly released figure was a huge jump from 7,000 profiles of sex offenders just two months ago on a site with about 180 million profiles. Roy Cooper, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper along with several others had demanded data on the number of registered sex offenders using the social networking site, owned by News Corp.
"I'm absolutely astonished and appalled because the number has grown so exponentially over so short of time with no explanation," said Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, according to The Associated Press.
It's not like there aren't sexual predators and perverts in the Democratic Party but come on. Things are getting obvious here. Exactly why are so many Republicans perverts? I mean, we all know perverts are around every corner. Down every dark alley. And there seems to be quite a large subset of them which are what I call PRiGs: Predatory Republican Gays.
Obviously, we aren't going to answer all the questions about Republicans, their repressed sexuality and the need for their leaders to be sexually predatory whether gay, bi or hetero.
But I thought that it's time to get this conversation started.
For those of you who didn't follow those links for the Florida Gonzalez/Abrami/Drake murder/suicide story's details, I'll just sum up the political end of things for you:
Gonzales (as Georgia Republican Party Executive Director) has close ties to Ralph Reed and the dirty tricks that defeated Senator Max Cleland in Georgia. Never forget they employed the confederate flag wedge issue hysteria. Never forget that Ralph Reed took over the Georgian Republican Party using Abramoff-forced Choctaw "donations."
And never forget that Abramoff knows all these guys. (Ever wonder why McHenry defends Charles Taylor so often and vehemently?)
Ralph Gonzalez also worked as now-Representative Tom Feeney's campaign manager who created a smear site against his Democratic opponent, Clint Curtis. Gonzalez was also Feeney's campaign manager when he ran for Florida state house to become it's speaker. He stayed on as a strategist and spokesman. There the ethics scandal involving influencing software purchases. He's tied to another indicted legislator, former Rep. Sheri McInvale.
