Scott Lively is at it again. The man who once hired a pedophile to help him run a shop offering free coffee to teens is making the bold claim that he has proof that President Barack Obama is secretly gay. He has made this claim time and time again. In a post on his Defend the Family site, he supposedly details a vacation that Obama had with Reggie Love.
The post is titled “Obama Vacations with Reggie Love, Not Michelle”, of course, we’re not sure if he means Michelle Obama or Michelle Love since that construction would mean “Obama vacations with Reggie Love and not with Michelle Love”, but headlines, what can you say. He subtitled it “More ‘gay’ grist for the rumor mill”. The entire thing centers around the recent vacation that Obama took without Michelle Obama when he spent most of his time golfing.
According to Lively:
AF1 wheels down Andrews at 7:45pm. POTUS came back to have a 10-minute off the record talk with pool at the end of the flight.
Reggie Love departed AF1 soon after POTUS, apparently a guest for the weekend.
Marine One wheels up 7:55 pm
Among those pushing this rumor are the ultra-nutty World Net Daily, which has claimed that Love was photographed engaging in a homosexual act at a party at University of North Carolina. Of course, the problem is what constitutes a ‘gay act’. For instance, sitting down to dinner is a ‘gay act’. After all, many gays have dinner…we presume all of them, actually.
Lively has also claimed that Obama was married to a man, and used ‘proof’ from conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi to back up his claims, and Corsi, along with gossip columnist Kevin DuJan, claimed that Obama use to crawl Chicago’s gay bars and bathhouses, but neither seem to have any definitive proof, or any proof for that matter.
Lively also wrote a book claiming that Hitler and the Nazis were gay even though his evidence for this was incredibly scant.
The big question is why any of these guys think that this is going to be shocking, damaging, or even gasp inducing to anyone other than the anti-gay people like Lively out there. Most people would possibly be shocked that Obama was not exactly faithful to Michelle, but it is likely that they had an arrangement if Obama is gay.
The problem for Lively and those who keep pushing the whole ‘Obama is gay’ thing is that most Democrats and Independents wouldn’t care. In fact, they wouldn’t even be bothered. The only reason why Larry Craig got into trouble is because of the anti-gay nature of his own party.
