Michigan Wingnut Attempts Record for Most Mentions of the World 'Homosexual' in a Single Robo-call

Michigan statehouse candidate Gary Glenn, who is also the President of the Michigan chapter of the American Family Association, really wants voters to know that Kevin Cotter's opponent Toni Sessoms is gay, despite the fact that Sessoms is out.

Gary_glenn Sam Stein writes:

"An otherwise obscure statehouse race in Midland County, Michigan, may be home to the most remarkable robocall of the election cycle -- put up by a social conservative group, it drops the word 'homosexual' ten times. Over the weekend, Gary Glenn, the chairman of the Campaign for Michigan Families, released a robocall attacking the Democratic candidate in the race, Tony (sic) Sessoms, as a stooge for the 'homosexual activist agenda.' Sessoms is openly gay. But if a voter didn't know that, they certainly got the point after getting Glenn's call...Glenn's campaign is micro-targeted towards re-affirming support for Michigan's marriage protection amendment (which he helped author), outlawing same-sex marriage in the state. But there is no subtlety to the script. For good measure, Glenn used the word lesbian and transgender to bring his inferences of homosexuality to a solid dozen."

Listen to the robo-call, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I'm surprised he didn't scream, "Homosexual!!!" at the very end of the message. LOL

    ...and how many times did he say, "OPENLY homosexual"? As opposed to the more preferred, "closeted and self-loathing homosexual". Geez... what a fucking homophobic douche nozzle. I hope the citizens of Michigan see how repugnant this guy is. One can only hope.

  2. The T is GLBT isn't about homsexuality. nor goes it "infer" homosexuality.

    Another reason why GLBT is an odd grouping of our communities. We may as well make it GLBTS, and add the "short" community.

  3. @Tom A why is it that gay is "queer" , um could it be because it doesn't follow sexist ideas about what a "man" and a "woman" should be like and act? idk maybe transpeople might have some idea what that's like too?

    Anyway this ad made me laugh, omg Sessoms is Homosexual and cares about Homosexual issues! and talks to other Homosexuals!

  4. 'Zactly HANNAH.

    OTOH, I'd prefer Stein had grouped us all together as "sexual minorities" since gender ID doesn't map to sexual orientation.

  5. Asshole! Making opposite sex marriage the only recognized one DOESN'T stop homosexuality! Being gay is not an optional choice; YOUR God made gays in his image, loving, kind, supportive, and happy. I guess he made a mistake with you; maybe he dropped a stitch. Banning gay marriage does not make HOMOSEXUALS disappear. It makes us more determined than ever to achieve the EQUALITY WE DESERVE. Stay out of my fucking bedroom!

  8. I would submit that any community that would elect Gary Glenn to any public office has no values...
