Meg Whitman Is An Anti-Gay Bigot. Is Her Son a Racist Bigot?

whitmangriffwill

We’ve yet to see the “serious” media question California gubernatorial hopeful and Prop 8-supporter Meg Whitman on the antics of her children, but reports that her younger son Will throws around the n-word might start prompting some to wonder: Is the Whitman household one big batch of hatred?

Whitman’s two sons Griff (the fifth) and Will Harsh may be this woman’s biggest campaign liabilities. Griff was allegedly suspended from Princeton — which Meg donated $30 million to, and has a dorm that bears the family’s name. And now Will, also a Princeton student, was supposedly banned from the Cottage Club, one of the school’s hoity-toity eating clubs, afte rdropping the n-bomb at a black girl, report Gawker and Guest of a Guest.

All along their prep school (which Will was kicked out of, twice) and college adventures, the gossip mill says these boys paraded around their wealth, excusing their obnoxious, and now racist behavior with mama’s money.

We’re not saying a candidate should be judged by the actions of her children. But certainly a household led by a bigoted woman is more likely to yield bigoted children.

    Omg. Look at her gums.

  • edgyguy1426

    I hope she starts talking about ‘family Values’

  • terrwill

    No. 2 · Greg Theron: dozes ain’t gums…dentures!

  • terrwill

    Funny she’s all anti the Gays. We have all heard the
    stories about what goes on in prep school dorms……..
    jus sayin’……………

  • Same Crap

    I live in CA and hear her radio ads often. She plays up her business/CEO credentials and plays down the fact that she is a Republican. I don’t think it’s been mentioned at all.

    This race is Jerry Brown’s to lose.

  • dk

    More gums than Wrigley’s!

    Sorry that’s the most shocking thing about this post.

  • ricky

    what is it withe the right and their naming kids griff? what kind of name is that?

  • Keith Kimmel

    Yet another reason I *do not* use eBay. Ever. For any reason. She may not work there anymore, but she still owns stock.

  • alan brickman

    i feel sorry for them..they could evole their opions…

  • hephaestion

    No E-Bay for me! What a tragically foolish woman.

    OMG, does she have gingivitis?

    Not only racist but Meg apparently doesn’t like Jews allegedly according to the quoted article:

    “OH and I almost forgot about the time he refused to introduce a girlfriend to his family because she was Jewish…”

    Whitman sounds like a real winner if all reports are true: homophobic, racist, and antisemitic. Is she running as a Republican or a neo-Nazi?

  • Sexy Rexy

    I don’t know, but she sho’ nuff can’t stick these back in where they came from.

  • SoylentDIva

    Am I shocked? Not at all. It’s rare to find bigotry towards one group and not find it towards another–or many others. Those who think they’re superior like to consider themselves at the top of the heap, not somewhere in the middle.

    One of the big N. Carolina colleges did a study back in the 70s or 80s, and they determined that homophobes were racists as well.

    I’m no fan of Meg Witless. But if you are going to be so judgmental about parenting, don’t be looking at the sons of a lot of politicians and ceo’s of all stripes. What you see might terrify you. Boys often will just be boys. And daughters? They can be douche baguettes, too. Doesn’t anyone on this site remember high school?

  • Same Crap

    Yeah, she’s a plenty unappealing candidate on her own without having to drag her spawn into this.

  • schlukitz

    It’s an Ipana smile!

  • 1EqualityUSA

    #19 “douch baguettes”… cute! Money can’t buy these boys integrity. Either you have it or you don’t.

  • Totakikay

    I am strongly urging the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community throughout the entire state of California to VOTE for someone such as Jerry Brown, instead of this Meg Whitman person. In my humble opinion: JERRY BROWN FOR CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR 2010. Promise me, promise me, promise me that you sexy Gay men will.

  • Lady Ga-Gasp

    So in other words, William Kennedy Smith, who went drinking with his uncle Ted, and then committed felonies, was somehow a byproduct of Ted? We are each responsible for ourselves, and blaming the parent for the spawn just because we don’t like their politics for me is hypocrisy. I am sick and tired of the left (of whom I’m a long, proud member) stooping to the tactics of the right wing. If that’s all we’re good for, then we are in trouble, and part of the curse, not part of the cure. But enough about “outing” only those whom we don’t agree with.

    Wow. That’s a blast from the past. LOL

    Thanks for the video ad.

  • ousslander

    I understand going after her but her kids, especially based on hearsay is low.

  • tjr101

    These idiots got into Princeton?!? Another example of Republicans benefiting from affirmative action.

  • Schteve

    A politician should be judged by the actions of her children when she makes family values an issue of her campaign. Which her supposed reasons for supporting Prop 8 do,

  • Mike in Asheville, nee "in Brooklyn"

    @No. 31 Schteve

    I support the outing of closet case hypocrites, and your analysis is quite similar. Whitman has made family values an issue of her candidacy, so her family’s values are an important factor. Not just “fair game” but should be part and parcel of her qualifications. Thanks Schteve.

  • Jose Arribas

    If this bitch gets voted Governor, I’m moving back to the Midwest where their bigotry is open and proud. California will then be officially the worst place on Earth.

  • Fitz

    Jose– get packing, babe. It’s pretty clear she will win. Her opposition is Jerry Brown. He won’t play in the central valley or far south. Witness how prop 8 went. Our only hope for CA is for the old people to die.

  • Same Crap

    Fitz, not to be condescending, but do you know anything about CA politics?

    For a Dem to win statewide office in CA, all he or she needs to win the vote rich LA County and the Bay Area counties. Dems always lose the Central Valley. They’ve actually made inroads in traditionally conservative Inland Empire, and San Diego and Ventura counties.

    Before he was recalled, Gray Fucking Davis was actually elected twice.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    She only started voting a year ago.

    >>But certainly a household led by a bigoted woman is more likely to yield bigoted children.

    If thus is tru, please explain how a household containing a heterosexual couple produces offspring that are not?

    MEG WHITMAN DON’T WANT TO SEE PROP 15 PASSED, BECAUSE IT LIMITS MONEY SPENT RUNNING FOR OFFICE & GIVES THE POOR CANDIDATE A CHANCE!!! IF MEG WHITMAN DID SUCH A GOOD JOB AT EBAY, WHY IS SHE NOT WORKING THERE ANYMORE??? MEG CAUSED EBAY TO LOOSE MANY SELLERS, BECAUSE EBAY IS RUN BY BUYERS LIKE MEG WHITMAN!!!
    YES, IF YOU HAVE 2 BIGOT SON’S, THEN THE PARENT “MEG WHITMAN” MUST BE THE EXAMPLE BIGOT THAT IS TEACHING HER SON’S!!!!
    EBAY SUCKS, BUT MEG WHITMAN SUCKS MORE!!!!
    TRY WENSY, IT’S ALL FREE AUCTION SELLING!!!!
    I PRAY ALL YOU CALIFORNIANS CAN SEE THREW ALL THE B.S. ADDS THAT MEG WHITMAN IS PUTTING UP!!!! ALSO, THERE SHOULD BE A LAW AGAINST “BRAINWASHING”, WHICH IS WHAT MEG WHITMAN IS TRYING TO DO, BY PUTTING ON SO MANY ADDS ON T.V. & RADIO SO FREQUENTLY, AS TO BRAINWASH YOU INTO VOTING FOR HER!!!! GUESS WHAT???? NOW YOU KNOW & IT’S OK TO VOTE FOR THE OTHER CANDIDATE!!! VOTE FOR ANYONE, EXCEPT MEG WHITMAN!!!!
    THANK YOU,

    She is a Racist! against minorities and gays alike.
    She blatantly says on her ads that she supports Arizona’s profiling law which is as racist as you can get.

    If your Latino or even look like your Latino you will get pulled over while driving to the store to buy some milk and asked for your documents!

    who and why should anyone in the United states have to carry a passport, birth certificate or any other personal documents while driving or walking in town.

    Bigotry that has this Country in the state it is in, after all we are all “people” living on this planet together” human beings not Aliens! or Illegal!

    Where has compassion for your fellow man gone? Politicians use anything to sway people to their side at all cost, its just disgusting how Meg Whitman has conducted herself she hasnt even voted in 28 years! how patriotic can she be?

  • tana

    She is a very white woman.

  • Snargel

    Wow Alfred. You are so right. All people should be citizens of the US…oh, wait, you already tried that in CA and now you are broke.

    Anytime you want to renounce your Medicare/Medicaid, SS, and other entitlements so we can spread it to all the “World Citizens” who did not pay into the tax system…you let us know.

    I love everyone here. You’ll sit around singing kumba yah while your state burns around you…but wait, we won’t vote for one of them pragmatic CEOs who actually accomplished something. I heard from my dog groomer’s niece’s friend’s crack pipe supplier that her son once used the “n-word”. No, let’s bring back Mr. MoonBeam…he’s got the proven skills to solve this mess. Yeah…

    Reboot Cali and start over…

  • Kiki Barrister

    And Princeton University of course didnt kick him out of school- though anyone else would have suffered terribly for that. Very unfortunate that there are 2 sets of rules for these women and their children!!

  • Mike

    She is a jew dummy who else would want this mess it is in the hands of the people that created this mess now!
