Mitt Romney Is Mr. Gay Friendly According to Pro-Santorum Robocall

rick santorumSomebody please reach out and hold me because I'm really scared right now. An anonymous tipster sent Gawker recorded audio of a robocall that's making calls and leaving messages on answering machines in Ohio right now. Paid for by, the callers identify themselves as Brian Camenker, a Jew from Massachusetts, and Darcy Brandon, a Christian from California, and they're basically trying to spread the word that Mitt Romeny is a gay-lovin' son of a bitch who needs to be defeated, at all costs, by Rick Santorum.

As Cemenker and Brandon see it, Santorum is the only candidate who will uphold "social sanity" and prevent this whole here nation from erupting into one giant homosexual festival of gay soldiers, gay congresspeople, gay kids, and just gays, gays, gays for days, days, days!

Here are some choice tidbits from the recording:

Mitt Romney ... promoted homosexuality in our elementary schools ... supports open homosexuality in the military ... [supports] making it illegal to fire a man who wears a dress and high heels to work ... When you vote tomorrow, please vote for social sanity and Rick Santorum, not for homosexuality and Mitt Romney.

After that, you can kind of understand where Barbara Bush is coming from -- she said, "It's been the worst campaign I've ever seen in my life ... It's too ugly." That it is Barbara, that it is. There's nothing about this message that is good for Santorum, good for Romney, or good for the nation.

Because a call like this is at best unnerving, at worst totally disturbing, disgusting, and abhorrent. And I'm not talking politically -- I'm talking about my gut reaction if I were to pick up the phone and hear someone spew some homophobic vitriol into my unsuspecting ear.

But what do I know, I like a man in heels.

What do you think of this call?

Where is the phone call?  Your link just provided a TRANSCRIPT of the call.  I couldnt find where to listen to it. 
Does it say that Santorum approved of this message?? Does Santorum belong to this group??

The author never implied that the robocall was supported or endorsed by Santorum. Brian Camenker, the man who allegedly (I say allegedly because I can't be sure if it was truly him, although it most likely was) spoke in the call is a known Anti-gay activist.

Oh bills just give it up... This is just a small example of the ridiculous rhetoric the right continues to spew.. no need for santorum to stamp his approval on this one! How do you think santorum got his lovely Google page? Hateful, judgemental words like these! I'll vote for Obama.. does that mean I'm voting for social insanity? Sounds better than having SANTORUM OR MITT ROMNEY as your leader! That would be just scary...

Dreabug, I was asking questions, not accusing the author of anything. I never heard of this guy that is an anti-gay activist. 

I just wonder if it is someone(like a liberal group), trying to stir up crap.

I thought the same thing too until I did some research on the group that paid for the ad.

awwww Dreabug.  People are just sad.  This is sad.  I am just tired of all the nominees(to include Obama), not talking about the gas prices, jobs and other things.

You have a point, billsfan.  I would appreciate it if someone addressed the actual issues.  And I'm a liberal.

There's not much that I agree with billsfan on, but she's right on this one. I'm so sick of the candidates talking about everything except the things that matter!

not that I don't think gay rights is not important, buy I 'm sorry. It pales in comparison to the actual issues facing our country. HELLO ECONOMY, jobs, security, gas and by way of that food prices and everyones overall health. Just like the insane attention being paid to providing FREE. birth control for all women, it isn't a life or death issue and neither is this gay issue. I sure hope both parties get with the program and focus on critical issues not the issues that end up as earmarks on a much larger dilemma. I also hope that the people who would vote for a.candidate just because they are for or against gay rights take the time to properly educate themselves on the most important items at stake in this election cycle. Here's you first clue. Gay rights and free birth control shouldn't be at the top of anyones list. If our country collapses it wont matter. end of story.
