We usually think it’s Republicans who are crass and homophobic and Democrats who are refined and inclusive—but it ain’t always so. Videos taken outside a debate between Democrat Elizabeth Warren and Republican Scott Warren show Warren supporters mocking a member of Brown’s team with an anti-gay remarks.
The Weekly Standard reports:
The first shows a man holding a United Auto Workers sign and wearing a UAW t-shirt walking away as the woman with the camera asks another Warren supporter if the UAW man is “homophobic.” The Warren supporter says, “He [the UAW man] says he [the Brown staffer] likes it up the a–.”
In another clip, a UAW worker admits to chanting “Sounds kind of gay” toward the staffer. “Oh yeah, I did,” the man says, laughing, before chanting “We want Scott, we want Scott” in an effeminate voice. “I’m like, ‘Sounds kind of gay, sounds kind of gay.”
