Scott Brown: I was sexually and physically abused as a kid
Hot Air ^ | February 16, 2011 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 02/16/2011 2:11:05 PM PST by RobinMasters

People get understandably fatigued by America’s “confessional culture,” but insofar as this encourages abused kids to speak up and aim high, it’s all to the good. It sounds like the molestation took place over a relatively short period of time but the duration of the beatings is less clear. Probably not “relatively short,” though:

Brown told also Stahl that he endured brutal physical abuse by more than one stepfather and even considered purchasing a Wakefield home where he’d been battered, “just so I could burn it down.”

“I actually called the realtor and went in and took the tour and relived kind of where everything was … to make sure I wasn’t … dreaming. As I left, I said, ‘Man, I wish I had the money. I’d just buy this thing and burn it down,’” Brown said.

He told Stahl that opening up about his tough upbringing, and revealing details that his wife and mother didn’t even know about, was cathartic.

Is this why he voted for the START treaty? Because he was afraid Putin would beat him?

I agree, guess there are 2 kinds of people. Those who have been abused and those of us who can’t remember. :(

Yeah, that’s what I’d do if I had a big problem or some deep dark secret: gush it to 60 Minutes’ Leslie Stahl before telling my wife, my mother, my pastor, my best friend.

Watch for follow-up visits to Oprah, the View, Geraldo Live, the whole line-up of lefty hand-ringers and guilt merchants.

Then watch for the little “R” after his name, as Brown himself has phrased it, to become a little “D”. Then at last he will know he is among his own.

But decided he'd settle for just burning down the country instead.

And...if true that his wife and mother did not know about the abuse...before he shared with Leslie Stahl...just speaks volumes about the man’s discernment/judgment. An absolute idiot in my book.

FTR, I was never sexually abused as a kid. SFAIK, none of my friends were sexually abused as kids. I did once hear second hand of a girl in a grade above me, maybe when we were in fourth and fifth grade, who had some pervert expose himself to her; but that was all that happened supposedly. We're talking late 50s here.

How unfortunate for Senator Brown. I’m sorry this happened to him.

Politically, does this mean that he’ll act like he has Stockholm Syndrome when he feels threatened?

I see this behavior in Senator McCain- don’t hurt me, let me understand you, let me help you. “You have nothing to fear from Obama, he’d make a fine president”, from memory but I think it’s close enough.

It sounds like his mother had crappy judgment in choosing sex partners. But we don't want to be judgmental.

Why would any man who had been sexually abused by another man favor more public promotion of homosexuality? Isn't that just crazy?

“I agree, guess there are 2 kinds of people.”

There are also those who have something to say and those that just have to say something.

I have heard that lots of homosexual men have a history of being abused as a child.

I was abused by John Kerry mentally and his anti war anti Americans continued his cause. Sometimes it is hard to rise above but is a necessity of life now to let yourself continue to be a victim. I will dump on lurch when I feel like it though.

I think it speaks volumes about this guy that he voted to end DADT, and expose our military to flagrant homosexuality in the barracks.

It is sad when a child is abused. But the child can either learn from it and grow stronger, or fail to deal with it and be perverted.

Pederasty in the schools is a real problem in Massachusetts. Has Scott Brown worked against it while he was in the State Legislature? Again, why did he vote with the homosexual lobby on DADT?

Barack Obama was almost certainly abused as a child by the “mentor” his sick grandfather chose for him. He writes about it in his poem “Pops.” You can feel sorry for Obama, but unfortunately his perverted youth led to his becoming a malignant narcissist and a homosexual. Again, you could feel sorry for him if he were not inflicting his perversions on the rest of us from the White House.

I don’t know why Scott Brown told this story in public, but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for him to denounce homosexual pederasts or voting to eliminate the gay agenda from our schools and our culture. Maybe he should quit the Senate and seek help.

So is this the shot over the bow that he’s not going to run again, because he wants to spend more time with his therapist?

I always thought the two kinds of people are those who put everyone into two groups and those who don't.
