Today In Conservative 'Obama Is Gay' Malarkey...


Joe.My.God today shared news that vitriolic website WorldNetDaily is currently running a speculative, rumor-mongering story called "Occidental Activist: I thought Obama Was 'Gay'".

Joe's link to the story reads "If you can stand it." I thought I had the stomach for such an essay, but I did not.

Here's an example of the author's irresponsible "reporting": "[An unidentified] psychotherapist who also notes the parental abandonment Obama suffered in his childhood says that while she can’t prove it, 'the degree of Obama’s disconnect reminds me of my sexually abused clients.'" Yeah, it's that bad.

  1. We know Obama is ahead in the polls when the right wing crazies start with all this bulls@it. They are truly pathetic !

  2. Breitbart is dead. His now zombiefied brand should have followed him.

  3. It's psychotherapists like that who discredit the good work of the ethical and evidence-based professionals out there. No wonder he/she didn't give their name.

  4. That "psychotherapist" should lose her license. That's one of the most irresponsible statements I've ever read.

  5. Hopefully someone can identify the therapist and file a formal complaint with her licensing board.

  6. The psychotherapist only exists in the head of whoever wrote that garbage.

  7. Character assassination of this order (sorry, that is what it will be seen by in middle America) can only help Obama, not hurt him. Remember, the tea party frothing-at-the-mouth loons already have accused him of being Kenyan, Muslim, and a drug addict. Since none of those accusations stuck, this just makes the reich-wing look even more desperate.

  8. Even if he was a closeted gay muslim, Obama would do a better job (has already) than that rich piece of Mormonwood in a suit the rethugs have running.

  9. It's desperation time for the right wingers, this election season is going to be very interesting and fun.

  10. As a gay man, I would love it if such an outstanding man as Obama were gay. But one look at his very sexy wife with whom he has fathered lovely daughters tells me, alas, he is straight.

  11. No such psychiatrist exists. He made it up.

  12. All psychotherapy is as bat s*it crazy as religion. Ignore your psycho therapist and your priest, minister, mullah or rabbi and you will live a happier and healthier life. Force those quacks to get real jobs.
