Isn’t it grand that in the United States of America you are free to hold a political position or affiliation, free to donate your money to any political party you desire, and not lose your job over it? The United States has always been the epitome of freedom of political speech.
… unless you are a gay guy that wants to support John McCain. In that case, all bets are off.
At least this is what a fellow named Jonathan Crutchley discovered when he decided that John McCain would be a better president in this age of Jihadi terror and donated $2,300 to McCain’s campaign. Apparently, freedom of political choice is not allowed in gay circles.
You see, Mr. Crutchley happens to be the chairman of the board that runs a gay dating site named Manhunt. And the intolerant gays surrounding him have forced him to quit his job. To be sure, Crutchley didn’t donate company money and didn’t make any announcements that his gay website was sponsoring his efforts or McCain’s. It was a personal donation quietly made with his own money.
Yet here is what the hate filled gays in his company have officially said of him:
“It should be known that Jonathan Crutchley’s donation to McCain left the entire Board in disbelief. I am disappointed that we have lost some customers, and I understand the anger. It is too bad for the web site if we lose customers, but PLEASE never refer to me as a Republican. I consider it an offense.
Crutchley admitted to this donation forthrightly. In the comments of an article about the Manhunt site posted on onlinepersonalswatch.com (that have since been removed) in April of 2007, Crutchley said that he thinks that McCain is a more experienced candidate for the White House.(Note, you can see a screen capture of Crutchley’s reply at www.towleroad.com)
Welcome to the age of the Internet, where everyone’s private life becomes public. Yes, my contribution to John McCain’s campaign for president was listed on Huffington post. I believe McCain will be a better commander-in-chief than Obama, who also opposes gay marriage. If we have an experienced, seasoned person defending the country in this dangerous age, we will be able to argue about the gay agenda later. Yes, I am a Massachusetts Republican, which is about the same as being an Alabama Democrat. But don’t call e a “liberal.” That’s an insult.
No matter what you think of Crutchley or his vocation as a gay website operator, he has a right to expect not to be fired over his political affiliation in America the land of liberty.
Obviously, however, gays are too intolerant to agree. How unAmerican they are.
I am amused that the operator of the towleroad.com site was indignant enough to demand that John McCain return this donation, too. There is no reason McCain should feel compelled to do so, though. None at all.
And, by the way, some of the links here go to adult, gay sites, so if you are offended by their hedonism, don’t click on them!
