Gay activist and the Obama administration’s unofficial anti-bullying czar Dan Savage, who last made headlines when he bullied a bunch of Christian students while lecturing them to not bully people, has struck once again, this time bullying a gay conservative group, calling them “house faggots” and making a crude and humiliating reference to anal sex, as if it was something to be ashamed of:
This morning, the conservative LGBT group GOProud released their entirely expected endorsement of GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney (R-MA). Executive Director Jimmy LaSalvia stated as part of their endorsement, “The truth is that gay people are living in the disastrous failed Obama economy too,” and cited Obama’s economic record as the reason for the group’s endorsement.
Sex advice columnist, provocateur and the brains behind the “It Gets Better” anti-bullying project Dan Savage took immediate exception to the groups endorsement, Tweeting,
“The GOP’s house faggots grab their ankles, right on cue: [link] …. Pathetic.”
While the co-founders of GOProud are by now used to taking heat from more liberal-minded members of the LGBT community, it’s rare that anyone as prominent as Savage has hurled insults like that. Co-founder Chris Barron, who left the organization last December amidst a minor scandal involving the outing of a gay member of Gov. Rick Perry’s (R-TX) campaign staff, addressed it on his blog this afternoon. “Apparently, faggot is an entirely appropriate slur as long as Dan Savage is slinging it and gay people who you don’t agree with are on the receiving end,” he wrote, adding, “It gets better my ass.”
Here’s a direct link to Savage’s Tweet.
The entire purpose of Dan Savage’s Obama-endorsed “It Gets Better” campaign is to reassure gay kids that bullies will stop taunting them with anti-gay slurs once they grow up.
But it turns out that’s not true: Bullies — in particular bullies like Dan Savage — will indeed continue to hurl anti-gay slurs at you once you grow up, calling you “faggot” and implying that you offer yourself up for anal sex to your abusers — if those bullies notice that you try to have an independent opinion and not cave in to peer pressure.
What flaming hypocrites like Dan Savage really mean by their so-called anti-bullying campaign is that only those gay kids who join Savage’s political clique will receive his protection; all you other gay kids will not only be abandoned to the bullies, but Savage himself will lead those bullies in trying to drive you to suicide.
