Homophobia as a Political Tactic

Sphere: Related Content

The donks may have hit on the one political tactic that no one has ever utilized before--homophobia. Of course the reason it's never been used is because it is not only immoral, but it is a grotesque violation of the rights of individual citizens.

The latest example comes from MSNBC:

WASHINGTON - Federal prosecutors in Arizona have opened a preliminary investigation of a camping trip Congressman Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., took 10 years ago that included two teenage congressional pages, a Justice Department spokesman told NBC News. NBC News first reported on the camping and rafting trip on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the Justice Department in Washington said that the U.S. attorney in Arizona has started a "preliminary assessment" of the trip, after an unidentified source made allegations about the congressman's behavior on the expedition.

"The U.S. attorney is looking into allegations about the congressman taking a trip with the two pages," the spokesman said.

These are nothing but accusations and innuendo and juxtaposed against Harry Reid's land dealings, which have been proven shows the depths the media has allowed the left-wing to lead them. The Foley issue is still front and center and no crime such as pedophilia occurred.

The "outing" of homosexuals for no other reason than political gain is not only being utilized but cheered. How despicable and desperate must ones party be to condone such actions?

Sadly, it seems to be working like a charm. The hoped for backlash may yet materialize from those in the donk party that still have a soul but I wouldn't bank on it.

The amazing thing is that if the Democrats were in the position the GOP is now, would their leaders allow any of these investigations to begin, let alone be leaked to the media?

Update: John Hinderaker at Powerline sums it up nicely:

This is the most topsy-turvy election season in memory, with trivia largely predominating over the very serious issues that divide the parties. The media's full-court press may well succeed in pushing the Democrats over the finish line. Still, it would be odd for voters to completely ignore the fundamentals of economics and national security that normally drive elections. Which, I think, is one of the reasons for the hysterical tone of today's news coverage.
