MITT ROMNEY WILL NEVER SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE BECAUSE HE LIKES BEATING UP GAY PEOPLE WAY TOO MUCH
May 10 2012
Washington, D.C. – Supporting gay marriage, already now in retrospect, seems an entirely natural fit for a Democrat like Barack Obama. Traditionally supporters of gay marriage, and many gay people, are democrats or liberals in one form or another. That, though, is only half the country.
The other half is of course conservative and for the most part conservatives take the opposite view of gay marriage. There are exceptions to be sure, perhaps most notably Dick Cheney whose daughter is gay, but all in all, conservatives have a hard time accepting gay marriage and homosexuality in general.
That, at minimum the political side, is why Mitt Romney had to come out and object to gay marriage again. For Romney though it does not appear that his lack of support for same-sex unions is merely political, having objected to them in the past and even using a plan to ban the unions across the country. Now though new stories have started to emerge indicating that Romney’s hatred for gay people goes back much further, all the way to prep school where he bullied a gay student, probably because he himself is secretly gay and doesn’t want to admit it.
“He was just easy pickins,” said Romney’s former classmate Matthew Friedemann. “I feel bad about what we did.”
Friedemann was referring to an incident when Romney and two of his friends pinned down a student they assumed to be gay and forcibly cut his hair.
That story has been confirmed by at least five former students who presumably aren’t getting anything out of Romney possibly becoming President.
It is widely believed that homophobia is rooted in an inability to accept ones’ own sexuality, though that has no basis in science of any kind.
“This is actually a fairly disturbing incident but I doubt, unto itself, if it will damage Romney’s political ambitions. It was something he did as a kid after all and we all do things as kids we regret, or don’t regret, or that were just bad and I think most people will see this that way,” said Scrape TV Political analyst Gabriel Kinsey. “However, if it does speak to something else in Romney’s past and in his character then that is a different thing entirely. If somehow this brings up real concerns about where Romney’s head is at it could cause problems. He does, after all, seem to really dislike gay people and that kind of passion has to come from somewhere.”
Romney has apologized for the incident, though not to the victim who may still inspire feelings for him.
“It is one thing to have been a prankster in school but another entirely to be a closeted gay man running for President of the United States. I know he has been married for years but people of his generation did that, especially ones who were going into business and trying to be high profile,” continued Kinsey. “If this incident inspires a deeper investigation into Romney’s personal life it could bring up some things he is not totally comfortable with, even himself aside from the politics, and that would certainly make for a very confusing and confused election.”
Romney has never admitted to having gay man on man sex in his life, but has never denied it either.
