Newsweek is trying to top Time’s latest breast feeding fetish cover in the “how provocative can we be” race, but this’ll backfire for both the magazine and Barry because the deluded left actually believes the entire gay agenda is embraced by most everyone.
They could not be more wrong.
It’s like pulling the pin from a grenade and putting it back in your Kevlar pocket.
Having Andrew Sullivan (the left’s favorite female-hating, gay scribe) write the piece won’t help either; and yeah, I get the play on words… he has to be the first “gay POTUS” because Clinton beat him to the first “Black POTUS” title.
Right about now Moochelle is grinding her molars and threatening to knock little Barack’s block off.
“You know how this makes me look? Git yo skinny ass up and call somebody!!”
And just for the record, I’d put my “gaydar” up against anyone I know. I’m continually surprised that my straight friends are surprised to be informed about Shep Smith, Gayle and Oprah, Anderson Cooper appear on everyone’s gaydar; and that Rachael Madcow and her fellow MSNBC news reader Thomas Roberts are out as gay.
The large percentage of gays in the entertainment biz, Hollywood, television and perhaps, maybe even in the WNBA gives the public the impression that this disproportionate percentage is true of the entire population.
Proof: According to a 2011 Gallup poll, U.S. adults suffer from the wrong end of the telescope syndrome, and estimate as high as 25% of Americans are gay or lesbian.
“WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. adults, on average, estimate that 25% of Americans are gay or lesbian. More specifically, over half of Americans (52%) estimate that at least one in five Americans are gay or lesbian, including 35% who estimate that more than one in four are. Thirty percent put the figure at less than 15%.”
However, Gary Gates is demographer-in-residence at the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy, a think tank based at the University of California, Los Angeles seems to me, right on target.
Gates’ best estimate, derived from five studies that have asked subjects about their sexual orientation, is that the nation has about 4 million adults who identify as being gay or lesbian, representing 1.7 percent of the 18-and-over population.
That’s a much lower figure than the 3 to 5 percent that has been the conventional wisdom in the last two decades, based on other isolated studies and attempts to discredit Kinsey. (As if anything else was needed to discredit Kinsey’s “research.)
So “everyone’s gay”, and heterosexuals can get AIDS easily… and all the other propaganda intended to portray homosexuality as the “norm” has worked in a goodly portion of the populace.
This is what comes from failure to do your own research, and use the common sense that God gave you.
Which, in matter of fact, pretty much describes your average liberal. “I’m with the choir!!! Preach to me!”
So, the spotlight of celebrity enjoyed by gays, is the distorting devil in the details.
Newsweek’s attempt to canonize Obama as head deity (note rainbow halo above) of the Left’s First Church of the Diversity, is politically unnecessary; the gay and the pro-gay agenda folks will vote for him regardless, and vice versa. However the whole gay agenda with Obama as its titular head will instead move “undecideds” and working class dems further toward the GOP as Obama distances himself further and further from the core values Real America.
In the end people tend to vote for those candidates most like themselves.
It will also fail because I believe a a surprising percentage of the public already assumes he’s gay or bi (my bet) anyway, and we know that the lion’s share of voters opposed gay marriage. No, I don’t have any first-person research but I do believe that the vast majority of people who think Obama plays for the other team or both, are themselves gay… and I’ll stipulate that their gaydar is damned well calibrated.
Fuel for the fire:
Gays dish endlessly about the ironically named Reggie Love.
Love was with Obama from 2006 until last year as Obama’s “body man”, a cross between a personal valet and constant companion.
The two have flown 880,780 miles together since Obama launched his 2008 run for the White House, according to researchers at ABC television. That flight log includes 31 countries – a few more than once – and 40 of the 50 US states since January 2009.
Love stepped down late last year to attend business school.
Let’s see…. travel the world with the President, have five-star chefs cook for you, ride around on Marine One and AF One and limos… meet any and everyone you ever wanted to for personal or career reasons, get paid extremely well and shoot all the, ahh, hoops you want with the most powerful man in the world, protect him from his wife….. or:
go to business school.
Ironically, the left and its gay vanguard have fought all the way to this point, only to overplay their hand.
And when your enemy is in the act of committing suicide, do not get in his way.
