Presidential hopeful Evan McMullin is accused of being gay
In today’s repulsive gay-LDS news, KSL is the agency reporting the latest stupidity. Here goes:
KSL claims that someone they call “a white supremacist” is financing auto-calls being made to Utah voters that are meant to call attention to independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin's alleged sexual preference.
As per KSL, "Evan McMullin is a 40-year-old Mormon who has a chance to become the first third-party candidate to win electoral votes since 1968 — and the state that may give him those votes is Utah".
In this auto call, which seems to be a “support the Donald” call, William Johnson states, "Evan is over 40 years old and is not married and doesn’t even have a girlfriend. I believe Evan is a closet homosexual."
This guy Billy Johnson is a BYU graduate, (Something I am loathe to print. Not all BYU graduates are this idiotic) who was named by Trump’s campaign as delegate to the recent Republican National Convention.
Oh, wait. There is more. This Johnson also says in these calls that candidate McMullin has "two mommies. His mother is a lesbian, married to another woman. Evan is OK with that. Indeed, Evan supports the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage."
By way of fact, Evan McMullin's parents were divorced. After the divorce his mother married a woman.
In defending his statement Johnson stated, "I said that I think he is a closet homosexual. Calling someone a homosexual is no longer defamation. Also, he is a public figure. Word on the street is that he is gay."
Of course the McMullin’s campaign has been all over the allegation, denying that there is a gay bone in the dude’s body.
"He has been on the record multiple times saying one of his greatest aspirations is to be a husband and a father. He wishes it would have happened earlier, however he spent more than 10 years in his 20's and 30's serving his country overseas in the CIA. He sacrificed his social life in order to protect the United States, and he expects to start a family of his own one day, "according to the statement.
Johnson, the guy who is making the accusation, is a “California lawyer who has been active in U.S. white nationalist circles for more than three decades” says KSL. “He has unsuccessfully run for public office as a member of various political parties and as an independent. When Trump campaign officials blamed his inclusion as a national GOP delegate on a "database error." Johnson resigned as a delegate.”
“According to Johnson, the calls will go out to at least 193,000 residential landlines in Utah between Monday evening and Wednesday evening. He said it cost him around $2,000", said KSL quoting The Daily Beast.
Frankly, I am disgusted by the accusation toward McMillion and his mother as well as those humans who would be swayed by someones sexual preference as an indicator of his professional abilities.
On Twitter, McMillion stated "This attack is consistent with @realDonaldTrump's bigoted, deceitful campaign and vision for America. Utahns won't be fooled,” he tweeted.
Again, From KSL: "Donald Trump has mainstreamed and normalized white nationalists, xenophobes, and bigots of all descriptions," McMullin campaign strategist Joel Searby said in a statement. "Today isn't an outlier or an exception; it's a vision of Donald Trump's"
