An article appeared on the Huffington Post saying President Obama used to be a “cocaine-using gay hustler.” And you know who ran with it, Professor Boyce Watkins on his BlackBlueDog website. For starters, President Obama admitted that he used cocaine in his youth. No surprises there. Second, this woman, Mia Marie Pope, is going by hearsay, not having witnessed firsthand what she claims to be true. If he experimented with homosexuality in the past, who’s business is that? Does that mean he can’t do his job as Commander-in-Chief? People, consider the source of these comments….a right wing smear artist.
To make the article on his website more ridiculous, Boyce Watkins’ writer cited Jerome Corsi, a known birther, whose work has been dismissed as pure bullshit in the past. In fact, his birther book was pulled from store shelves because it was filled with lies. Jerome Corsi is also linked the birther website World Net Daily. Once again, Boyce Watkins is playing the Obama hater role over nothing more than hearsay. The article claims the “president has been very active on the gay agenda since becoming president, leading Newsweek to declare him to be America’s first gay president.” Wow, all that gleaned from a known birther, who would like nothing more that to see Obama kicked out of office.
Who did Mia Marie Pope run to with her story? A right wingnut. Which makes the story even more shady. The Huffington Post should be ashamed of itself for posting this drivel. Former president John F. Kennedy was a womanizer but that didn’t stop him from doing his work as a president until his untimely death, did it? George W. Bush was accused of drug use in his adult years, to which he never admitted or denied, but yet he served two terms as president.
As Right Wing Watch first reported, Mia Marie Pope told right-wing preacher James David Manning that she believes that Obama was not only active within the gay community, but also a heavy cocaine user during his years in Hawaii.
“He always portrayed himself as a foreign student,” Pope said. “Girls were never anything that he ever was interested in … He would get with these older white gay men, and this is how we just pretty much had the impression that that’s how he was procuring his cocaine.”
She then notes, “In other words, he was having sex with these older white guys and that’s how he was getting this cocaine to be able to freebase.”
Pope, of course, isn’t the first conservative voice to make such claims about the president’s personal life. In May, “Coach” Dave Daubenmire implied Obama was “openly gay” or “better yet, openly bisexual” in a News With Views broadcast, nothing that the president’s “face seems to really light up when he begins to talk about the gay agenda.” Source: Huffington Post
President Obama’s sexual orientation during his younger days is nobody’s business. Sen. David Vitter has links to a Washington D.C. Madam, who later committed suicide. Um, guess what? He’s still in office. The fact is, if the Republican Party had solid evidence of this, they would have used it in 2008 and we would have never had Barack Obama as our first president. In other words, it’s time to move on from this bullshit. I am sure Mia Marie Pope and all Obama’s critics have things in their past that they aren’t proud about and wouldn’t want to be revealed. “Judge not lest ye be judged.”
