Gingrich Doesn’t Want Gay Iowa Man’s Vote, Tells Him To Vote For Obama
Another day, a new opportunity for serial adulterist and Tiffany’s debtor aficionado Newt Gingrich to say or do something abhorrent that disquiets all. After being called a “f##king a-hole” by an Iowan voter (Newt’s nickname), the Grinch has lived up to that colorful epithet in glorious fashion.
Scott Arnold, a homosexual associate professor of writing at William Penn University, got yet another reminder of the Republican party being an exclusive club. An a rather bizarre way of wooing potential voters, Newt Gingrich flatly told Mr. Arnold that, as a gay man, his vote is not welcomed.
From the Des Moines Register:
“I asked him if he’s elected, how does he plan to engage gay Americans. How are we to support him? And he told me to support Obama,” said Arnold. […]
“When you ask somebody a question and you expect them to support all Americans and have everyone’s general interest,”Arnold said. “It’s a little bit frustrating and disheartening when you’re told to support the other side. That he doesn’t need your support.”
If anyone is authorized to judge the merits of marriage, it is the man who has had more wives than King Solomon and, when he’s not cheating on them, he’s leaving them on their deathbed simply because they aren’t pretty enough to be First Lady. Considering Newt wants to return to a 19th century Dickensian Child Work model, his socially backwards views on sexual orientation is hardly shocking.
In fact, Newt’s very own sister, Candice Gingrich-Jones, who happens to be gay, told Rachael Maddow she would “work really, really hard to make sure that President Obama is re-elected next year no matter who the Republican candidate is.”
“He is definitely on the wrong side of history when it comes to those issues,” Gingrich-Jones said of Newt.
Newt is not just on the wrong side of history, he makes up his own history in which Palestinians don’t exist, Jewelry is for free, and wedding vows are gibberish.
