This video of a person named William Gheen shows more than any other how this country is descending into bigoted and shrill demagoguery. Gheen not only accuses Sen. Lindsey Graham of being gay but suggests that he is being blackmailed by mysterious forces in Washington.
Of course, Gheen insists that he is a tolerant man and couldn’t care less about Graham’s lifestyle. This appears to have occurred at a Tea Party rally.
Putting aside the sheer lunacy revealed in this conspiracy theory, the level of hate and bigotry in our country appears to have found new voices in our broken political system.
