Lindsay Graham is not gay!

"quashing" the rumors stirred by Chelsea Handler. Brother....that must have given him the "vay-pors."

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/oct/12/lindsey-graham-extent-it-matters-im-not-gay/?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=socialnetwork&fbclid=IwAR3OQXSNq-U86_wOZ7CFX1AAog0mEpFQYkuYtaV3wiQXNSFOGBACC_3V-Gc

Guess what, Lindsay? Speaking as part of the community, we don't want your lying, traitorous old ass around us anyway. So fuck off.

Oh, and The Washington Times makes it so legit. Not.

But instead he's a right wing tool that regularly takes a steaming shit on gay rights.

So if we find out he's been snorting lines of coke off of a rentboy, it's open-season.

Wait - that doesn't explain his brown nosing pretend-manly Trump.

For someone with a proud military history, he sure is a delicate flower bending to the hard right political wind, perhaps thinking it makes him look "manly" and strong. No, it doesn't.

Coming from a right wing rag. If this is what they're trying to advance to their true believers, the opposite is surely true, and Putin's probably dangling the proof over Lindsey's terrified head.

26. I am sort of on his side on this one.

He may in fact be gay and hiding it. Or he may not be gay. As a lifelong attractive bachelor who has no children and is not gay, I see where he is coming from, I have had the "gay" stuff thrown at me. When a person has a certain profile and does not have someone of the opposite sex involved in their life, the "gay" rumors start being whispered. I have been the victim of that stuff endlessly and think that it is reprehensible. For whatever their reason, some people just choose not to be married or involved with someone.

but they didn't release it. On the other hand, he seems to have really flip-flopped on Trump and the Russians.

Being blackmailed would explain a lot.

P.S. Graham is a lifelong bachelor, but he has never been "attractive." That's not why some people think he's gay!

59. If Graham is gay and he is hiding it in his position, that is not good

for the country. But as a regular citizen, I feel that we need something more concrete on him that insinuations and conjecture. Eventually the truth comes out, but as a person in a situation similar to him (single, never really dated anyone, no children) I know what people say behind one's back. I am straight, but how does a man "prove" that he is not gay, go out and impregnate 1,000 women? But exactly what would have been proven or disproven?

24. He even lied about that! He is 100% garbage.

"He insisted to his dying day that his disease was liver cancer."

"According to Roger Stone, Cohn's "absolute goal was to die completely broke and owing millions to the IRS. He succeeded in that."

"Cohn and McCarthy targeted many government officials and cultural figures not only for suspected Communist sympathies, but also for alleged homosexuality. McCarthy and Cohn were responsible for the firing of scores of gay men from government employment and strong-armed many opponents into silence using rumors of their homosexuality."

33. The Russians hacked one of Graham's email accounts.

They went to the trouble of hacking the RNC server but didn't leak anything they found there.

So what did they do with the emails they didn't leak? Maybe they kept them for blackmail.

Anyone who is gay and is afraid of being outed could be subject to blackmail.

If Graham is being blackmailed that would explain why he stopped publicly hating Trump.

This is from December 16, when Graham was still concerned about the Russians:

https://www.cnn.com/2016/12/14/politics/lindsey-graham-hacking-russia-donald-trump/index.html

Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday his campaign email account was hacked by Russians -- adding that the US needs to work together to stop this from happening.

"I do believe the Russians hacked into the (Democratic National Committee). I do believe they hacked into (John) Podesta's email account. They hacked into my campaign account," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room." "I do believe that all the information released publicly hurt Clinton and didn't hurt Trump. I don't think the outcome of the election is in doubt. What we should do is not turn on each other but work as one people to push back on Russia."

SNIP

"They're trying to destabilize democracy all over the world. Not just here," he said about the Russians. "Here's what we should do. We should tell the Russians that on no uncertain terms, you interfere in our elections, we don't care why, we're going to hit you and hit you hard, we're going to introduce sanctions, it'll to be bipartisan."

Blitzer asked him about Trump denying that Russia tried to influence the elections.
Graham responded that maybe Trump isn't being briefed properly on the information, or maybe he doesn't want to know, adding, "There is no doubt in my mind that the Russians hacked into political systems," matter.

55. It's the hypocrisy (if true)

Itís about someone in a position of power in a party that actively opposes equal rights for lgtbq people being a closeted gay man. I dunno if the long-standing rumors are true, but if they are itís next level messed up. Not because of being gay, but because someone who should know better and is in a position of power instead enables policies that hurt other people in the lgtbq community. Also that someone that closeted would be very vulnerable to blackmail.
