Mitt Romney’s Homosexual Panic

RomneyJohn Eskow writes on Counterpunch:

First things first: you don’t have to be a shrink to know that no-one bullies homosexuals unless they’re tormented by their own homosexuality, active or suppressed.  Any physical attack on a “gay” man is de facto rape.  All that’s required to understand that basic fact is four years of  high school or two years in the military. Mitt Romney’s serial “pranks,” like the gang-bang attack he led on a gay student while in prep-school at Cranston—Cranston!  how the name itself reeks of fey weakness and upper-class entitlement!—speak loudly to his own deep sexual confusion.  Who the hell seeks the help of a “champion wrestler”—gay-bells ringin’, are you listenin’—to pin the gay student to the ground while “viciously” hacking away at the helpless boy’s long blonde hair with a pair of scissors? Who DOES such a thing?

Well, a guy like Mitt Romney, about whom a certain rapper—who bears a striking resemblance to myself–wrote this verse: “You don’t think I’m hard, I’m’a show you the proof—I put the muthafuckin’ dog on the damn car roof!  You think my sons are weird, I’ll tell ya why that’s true—I stuck their little bitty asses on the car roof too!” In any case, a deeply sick man.

Romney’s obvious attempt to “castrate” Jonathan Tauber, the gay student, haunted the poor man for the rest of his life.  But Romney claims not to even remember it—denial, anyone? Then, in classic Romney style, he makes his original lie exponentially worse for himself by amping it up with a second, even more laughable lie:  “I certainly don’t believe that I thought the fellow was homosexual. That was the furthest thing from our minds back in the 1960s, so that was not the case…”

    Who hates this guy? 

    I do.

      How existentially vile and horrifying is it that there is sizable portion of the population that doesn’t hate this guy and that he is probably going to be our next president?

    Romney may not be gay now…but he will be after he buys the big polygamous love planet in the sky.

    Romney is a vicious, lying, sociopathic piece of shit. The absolute scum of the earth.

    we are all entitled to our own opinion but i really do not appreciate you guys hating on a man who could potentially be the 2nd gay president.

    Well, just as I don’t like biased articles on Obama (no, he didn’t invent cancer) this one started with fleck about its lips so I tuned out after a few sentences.

    But what really had me close the door was demonizing the word Cranston.  Well, Bryan Cranston is a wonderful actor who isn’t a prick…and more importantly, Lamont Cranston (wealthy young man about town) is in really The Shadow, who you wouldn’t invite over to tea, but who knows that the weed of crime bears bitter fruit.

    Yes, I know that weeds aren’t fruit-bearing.

    apropo of nothing, i’d like express my opinion that there is no psychologically complex reason for bullying anyone. they are jerks. that is all. I went to an all-male high school in MI where we regularly played Cranbrook at sporting events. they’re all like that. privilege+ testosterone= that sort of behavior.

    Cranbrook…
