Were the 60 Mins TANG Docs faked so Bush's gay past wouldn't get uncovered?
The following post is dedicated to Repub hypocrisy about homosexuality due to self hatred (which I already posted about in 2/06) b/c me thinks they doth protest too much b/c they art deep in the closet. And science fully backs me up on this: "Research by a Univ of GA psychologist suggests that 80% of men who are homophobic have secret homosexual feelings. The research results were published in the Journal of Abnormal Psych, w/the backing of the Amer Psych Assoc. This finding lends scientific support to the long-standing speculation that those who shout the loudest against homosexuality have something to hide. In tests conducted at the Univ of GA, homophobic men who said they were exclusively hetero were shown gay sex videos. 4 out of 5 became sexually aroused by the homoerotic imagery, as recorded by a plethysmograph . . . a calibrated band fitted around the penis, which measures any enlargement. The prof who performed the tests, Dr Henry Adams says his research shows that most homophobes "demonstrate significant sexual arousal to homosexual erotic stimuli" suggesting that homophobia is a form of "latent homosexuality where persons are either unaware of -or deny- their homosexual urges." Now, w/that study in mind, please question why in the hell do Repukes gay bash and make anti-gay legislation the very centerpiece of their GOP platform? Example: Rep Marliyn Musgrave (Repuke and Wingnut of CO) says: "Gay Marriage is THE most important issue facing America in 2006." Now I know several gay men in long term committed relationships, who would say that THEIR gay marriage is THE most important issue in their lives, but why in TF does Musgrave put it at the top of her list for 2006 when we have 2 fricking wars going on? Does she find herself a little too transfixed by the LPGA? Is she watching a heckuva lot more of The View since Rosie joined the cast? And... I know this comes from Wayne Madsen... but if true, this could explain SOOOO very much when it comes to this BushCo/ Repuke obsession w/ homosexuality, no?: "According to individuals who investigated Bush's stint in the 147th Fighter Group of the TX Air Natl Guard (TANG), the GOP's top dirty tricksters, notably Karl Rove and Roger Stone, interceded to derail the investigation and, instead, had CBS focus on Bush's faxed, scanned, and Xeroxed original TANG records -- which were later hyped by the right-wing media as fakes. The reason for the GOP's concern was that the investigation was getting dangerously close to exposing Bush's suspected homosexual activity w/ other members of his TANG unit. Given the times and culture of the early 1970s, investigators were surprised to discover Bush's frequent association with an abundant number of gays in the unit, which was nicknamed the "Champagne Unit." Bush's homosexuality is the bête noire of Bush's past for GOP political operatives, precisely because of the anti-gay stance of the Republican right and its Christian fundamentalist base. In 1976, the Bush family sent young George to El Paso's Worthy Creations, a Christian gay conversion center. From that time on, Bush became a tool of the Christian right and a self-hating homosexual. The investigation of Bush's gay activities in the TANG unit would have unraveled Bush's new "straight" persona. The GOP went to battle stations to prevent Bush's past from being resurrected. Bush's alleged homosexuality in college was hinted at in Kitty Kelley's massive biography of the Bush family, The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty, which was released at about the same time as CBS 60 Minutes was investigating Bush's Natl Guard stint. In the case of Kelley's book and the gay charge, the criticism came not from the GOP operatives but from their allies in the corporate media, including the Wash Post's Howard Kurtz, who is married to a GOP operative. While Bush attended all-boys Andover prep school (nicknamed "bend over"), Bush, not able to make it as an athlete, instead became a male cheerleader. At Yale, Bush, according to Kelley, had a "very special relationship" with Victor Ashe, his room mate and fellow cheerleader. Ashe, a former Mayor of Knoxville, is now Bush's ambassador to Poland. At the Delta Kappa Epsilon frat house, Bush became known as "a jock sniffer." And let's please not forget the info floating around the internets about this woman: Leola McConnell, who is running for Gov of NV, and for 2 ys now, she has had a site up that fully divulges her dominatrix activities w/ bisexual lovers Victor Ashe and Dubya. And folks wiser than me ask a very important question: If this info floating around out there about Bush's closeted life is mere lies, why hasn't someone-- anyone-- had the shit sued outta them by now?
