Skip to comments.Scott Brown: I was sexually and physically abused as a kid
Posted on 02/16/2011 2:11:05 PM PST by RobinMasters
People get understandably fatigued by Americas confessional culture, but insofar as this encourages abused kids to speak up and aim high, its 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 hed 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 wasnt dreaming. As I left, I said, Man, I wish I had the money. Id 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 didnt even know about, was cathartic.

Why should I care?
So thanks for voting to end DADT, creep.
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 this needed to come out now...because...? I’m trying to understand. (Oh! I get it...Book-selling time!)
This explains much.
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.
So, quit abusing the rest of us.
Well.. it didn't turn him into a blogpimp.
There's always that.
Doesn’t say much for his marriage, does it?
Get out the little violin and the bull shit meter, run this RINO out of the senate.
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.
This dude is just building a bridge to the other side of the aisle. He’ll bolt to the dems within 5 years.
“Why would any man who had been sexually abused by another man favor more public promotion of homosexuality? “
I have heard that lots of homosexual men have a history of being abused as a child.
(but then I got better...)
I understand that’s true ... but it’s still crazy. Of course, homosexuality is crazy ...
Yeah, now we’ve got THREE hateful threads here this afternoon.
Don’t make jokes about being abused.
Guess you and everyone you know were lucky.
So what else is new?
#23. Yeah, right. /sarc
IF this is true, imagine putting your burden onto your mother and wife.
Weak, selfish loser.
You want hateful?
Check out the “friendly dialogue” between FReepers on the lara Logan threads.
So he votes for DADT, and all the other commie bills.
So you abuse the rest of America now!
Maybe so but he still is a jackass.
Because the same thing happened to someone you know and care for but you just don’t know it.
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.
That is a sick comment. No one enjoys sexual abuse.
After this Senate term is up, Scott should have lots of time to reflect upon his childhood.
Too much information....This is stuff I don’t want to know. He should work this out privately with his wife, pastor, shrink, what have you
Well thanks for sharing that dipstick, too bad. God Almighty I’m sick of this culture of crying we have in America, toughen up dude and keep your dirty linen to yourself.
Hugh Heffner, imho, has a lot to do with this SEX crap and abuse. Playboy was/is nothing but PORNO. Disgusting.
