Present the Poofs

Rick Santorum’s daughter is claiming Santorum has gay friends, Dan Savage says present the poofs:

When someone who seeks to write anti-gay bigotry into the US Constitution, ban adoptions by gay couples, ensure that gays and lesbians are barred from their partners’ bedsides during medical emergencies, deport gay and lesbian foreign nationals legally married to US citizens, reinstate DADT, etc., claims to have gay friends and supporters, the burden of proof rests squarely on the anti-gay bigot’s shoulders. As I said yesterday in my response to Elizabeth Santorum: Claims by anti-gay bigots of gay friends and supporters should not be reported as fact, political reporters, unless the bigots are able to present them. The proof is in the poofs.

    Hah. Always nice to see the new protected class getting hysterical.

    Whale, I’m not clear on why you’re posting this? I presume you’re anti-Santorum but could be wrong. While you may disagree with Santorum’s view of the world, surely you don’t endorse Dan Savage’s dirty tactics? Virtually re-defining his surname on Google surely must rank with Orwellian Newspeak, and show’s the gay-lobby’s preference for bullying over debate.

      Don’t you think Santorum is something of a bully himself? I consider him a rather hateful person tbh.

      • Michael

        I don’t know if he’s hateful (not an expert on his history) but philosophically disagreeing with gay marriage etc, is quite different to profoundly, and disgustingly, twisting Google to make his name’s Google definition so offensive his kids cannot Google it. Also, you’ve failed to address my point. You just basically repeated the personal attack on Santorum. Nice work.

      Michael, I’m quite happy to make a personal attack on Santorum, just as I’m happy for people to use google-bombing to make him look bad.
      And yeah, I think he is hateful.

    “Dan Savage’s dirty tactics”

    Yeah, I saw that. I certainly could’ve done without the mental picture that gay sex means wallowing in  each others shit.

    Santorum is awful, but he is not going to win.

    I have good close personal friends gay and lesbian, but this vid sums it up for me : )
