Mitt Romney’s History On LGBT Rights Is Further Proof He’s A Robot

Mitt Romney is a robot — everyone knows that right? Now that we’re all on the same page, let’s continue reading the Republican Presidential nominee with help from Boston Spirit Magazine, which interviewed some plaintiffs in the landmark case that granted same-sex marriage to Massachussetts.

Romney, then governor, was determined to block the passage of the law after the Supreme Judicial Court gave their approval, proposing a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Julie Goodridge and the other plaintiffs from the case staged a press conference to meet with Romney and shared their touching personal stories.

But a robot has no emotional sensors and therefore no feelings so Romney remained expressionless while openly not listening. He was also relatively silent, though he did at one point remark, “I didn’t know you had families.”

Boston Spirit reports:

“I looked him in the eye as we were leaving,” recalls Goodridge. “And I said, ‘Governor Romney, tell me — what would you suggest I say to my 8 year-old daughter about why her mommy and her ma can’t get married because you, the governor of her state, are going to block our marriage?’”

His response, according to Goodridge: “I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.”

Romney later described the press conference as “pleasant,” while Goodrige was reduced to tears.

And that’s not all. Romney attempted –but luckily failed — to shut down the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth because a press release from the organization had the word “transgender” on the same page as his name. He also attempted — and failed — to block the publication of an anti-bullying guide citing the inclusion of the words “bisexual” and “transgender.” The former governor was more successful, however, in firing two gay employees shortly after marrying their partners, while his spokesperson Richard Grinnell resigned this year after experiencing a homophobic backlash that essentially forced him out of his position.

Boston Spirit also makes mention of Romney’s courting of Log Cabin Republicans and their ilk, with whom he seems more comfortable interacting since “leadership positions are often held by white males who could ‘pass’ as straight in casual social settings.”

Those damned tricky robots — always trying to pass as human and “normal” but eventually the wiring is exposed.

      Romney: smarmy, arrogant, tax-evading, draft-dodging, liar.

      I know I’ve left something out, but calling him a “prick” just doesn’t have the right punch.

      BTW, Mormons hate Jews, Gays‡, Blacks, Catholics, Latinos, and Women*.

      This in not an exhaustive list.

      *Women are considered fine for fucking, and the more wives the merrier, as long as they know their place.

      ‡Gays are tolerated only around 5pm when they are willing to give head to a Mormon father heading home from the office to his wives (who he’s too tired of fucking) and kids.

      If he becomes President will Democrats help him vote in his SCOTUS nominees like they helped vote in Alito and Roberts?

      So over the 2party system charade.

      I see you all know Mitt, a greedy corporate cheat and a bigot. I find it hard to understand how anyone who is well informed can consider Mitt as a president. It makes me gag, vomit.

      The Mormons are already preparing to hit the blogs with “If you don’t vote for him it’s because you are anti-Mormon” lines because they can see the writing on the wall.

      Yes, Mitt Romney is fully lacking compassion, humanity, substance and resolve, but it is highly insulting to compare him to a Robot. Actually it is insulting to Robots, because Robots might actually serve a purpose.

      I wonder if it is that silly underwear that Mormon men have to wear that makes them so mentally unstable? What is it made of? What do they put in it that makes them so rediculus?
