If you truly want to see the darkest side of humanity, I suggest you watch the GOP Presidential Candidate Debates and observe the audiences. I assure you that you will only be able to stomach a few minutes before plummeting into complete misanthropy. During this week’s debate we heard the GOP audience actually booing gay Soldier Stephen Hill, serving in Iraq, thus earning the audience and candidates the BWA.
Hill asked Rick (the P is silent) Santorum, “Do you plan to circumvent the progress that has been made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military.” Here is where the audience booed him. Like the previous debate, where the audience cheered for Death, the candidates sat silent–their silence allowing us to, at the very least, interpret social cowardice and at the very worst showing they agreed with their sociopathic audiences.
Santorum’s response would indicate that the candidates are in full alignment with their sociopathic audiences:
Any type of sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military. And the fact that they are making it a point to include it as a provision within the military – that we are going to recognize a group of people and give them a special privilege, I think tries to inject social policy into the military and the military’s job is to defend our country.
I did not realize that being treated as a human being was a “special” privilege. Shame on Santorum, shame on Dr. Ron Paul, the rest of the ship of fools for not calling out bad behavior. Your silence BELLOWS true cowardice! There is a great article on Towleroad if you would like to read more.
