Skip to comments.Outrage Movie: Charlie Crist, Ed Koch, Mark Foley Gay
Posted on 05/09/2009 10:12:40 AM PDT by DesertRenegade
Outrage is the talk of the Tribeca film festival. The documentary by filmmaker Kirby Dick claims that several politicians who vote anti-gay on political issues are actually gay themselves, and have had verifiable trysts with men. The documentary contains interviews with men who claim to have had sex with these anti-gay politicians.
Of course, many liberal media outlets are trying to keep the identities of the politicians outed by Outrage a secret. Some claim that sexuality (even for politicians) is a personal issue that should not be made public without consent under any circumstances. That is sheer nonsense. In the internet age, a secret can only be kept for about 5 seconds.
Below is a list of politicians that the Outrage film claims are gay:
Charlie Christ, Florida governor Ed Koch, former Mayor of New York David Dreier, California Congressman Larry Craig, Idaho Senator Mark Foley, Florida Congressman
Several politicians who have outed themselves publicly are also included, like James McGreevey, former New Jersey governor, and Senator Barney Frank.
I have to admit that I am persuaded by Kirby Dick that outing is actually NOT immoral or unprofessional. Journalists investigate heterosexual scandals all the time. We do not question whether revealing John Edwards affair to the public is acceptable for journalists. We assume that reporters have the right, nay, the DUTY, to reveal whether John Edwards is cheating on his wife. We know what Bill Clinton did with a cigar, we know what he did with Paula Jones, we know what he did pretty much every second of every night in every bed of his life. So why is it wrong if a journalist questions if Charlie Crist, Ed Koch, or Mark Foley had sex with a man? If any one of them did, frankly, the public has a right to know.
I have no idea whether any of the above are actually gay, but since when is it wrong to investigate the sex life of a public official?
See the trailer for Outrage below. I am betting Mr. Dick did not expect to see an ally on Right Pundits.
I think you meant to say that the outrageous movie claims they are all queers.
I think that if they can investigate to the fullest Sarah than everyone is fair game. I hope that they out every stinkin one of them quite frankly. Why should they be protected if Sarah isn’t? They put themselves out in the public so there is a risk.
Not true. 17 is the legal age of consent in DC; and all the boys in question where that age. What he did was unethical, but was nevertheless legal.
LOL, I prefer referring to them as homosexuals but used the original title from the author. But I would agree that the homosexual militants have been very shrewd in changing the language about their lifestyle to cover up their actual practices - which would horrify the average person.
the guy who wrote this got almost every state and office wrong.
“17 is the legal age of consent in DC”
I didn’t know that. I thought the age of consent was 18 everywhere in the US. Still it seems pretty sick for a man in his late 40’s (50’s?) to be sexually pursuing teenage boys. But then again, that seems par for the course in the homosexual lifstyle.
Dr. Laura Schlessinger: “How many letters have I read on the air from gay men who acknowledge that a huge portion of the male homosexual populace is predatory on young boys.”
There are gay people who don’t believe in the homosexualization of society, so there isn’t any reason that there can’t be gay Republicans or even gay conservatives.
Of course, gay conservatives are a rare breed, but they do exist.
Did they mention Tim Geithner by chance?? :-)
Gosh. I can remember when it was, “The love that dare not speak its name.”
Now, “It’s the love that can’t shut up.”
Or I think Larry Sinclair should have been interviewed for the film. It’s biased against the GOP, surprise surprise.
You mean “TURBO” Tim?
. . . what Mr. Dick sees with these gay guys.
DIdn’t Charlie just get married to a pretty HOT chick? How is he gay?
this is an OUTRAGEous lie. All but the National Enquirer covered that up until he was out of the race, then were embarrassed into printing the story next to the horoscopes. I wonder if it been mentioned yet by the Craveness Couric for one?
Charlie Crist? Is it because he’s tanned, thin, neat, and (was) single (for a long time)?
I would not take the word of the author of such a book nor would I accept his list as accurate without more proof than this.
Kirby Dick aka “Mr. Dick”. Is this satire?
Be interesting if they did the same research on federal judges, as well as the state level supreme court judges, like the ones that rule in favor of gay marriage.
Charlie is not Christ.
“DIdnt Charlie just get married to a pretty HOT chick? How is he gay?”
It was for appearance.
Rock Hudson also got “married” to Phyllis Gates. It was a prearranged marriage so he wouldn’t lose his macho image.
My concern is the sources. The movie maker had better be certain he’s outing people that can’t turn around and sue for, oh geez...I see the problem now. You sue for “defamation” and the homosexual activists get angry because you sued for “defamation”.
The dumbass forgot to interview Larry Sinclair about the certifiable queer Obama.
This is an easy mistake to make. They're are widely varying consent laws all over the US. In many states it is 18. But, in many others it's 17. And in other states, it can be even younger so long as the "partner" is no more than two or sometimes three years older than the youngest participant - ie. A 16 year old girl can legally have sex with a 17 year old boy, but not a 25 year old boy. It can get very confusing.

Without question, if the traditional media would have printed the Edwards allegations when they learned of them (early spring of 2008, some even earlier), Barack Obama would certainly not be President today. Edwards candidacy clearly hurt Hilary and easily kept her from securing the party's nomination.
The fact that the media did not to report in a serious way these Edwards (accurate) affair rumors, will be talked about for decades to come by Presidential historians.
you could say “unbelievable,” but nothing really is anymore.
Mark Steyn (on for Rush) pointed out that many gays are not in favor of gay marriage. It’s so stuffy and mainstream. They prefer another lifestyle ... the witty, sophisticated thing.
So, it’s not really necessarily correct to say that these people, even if gay, are being hypocritcal to oppose gay marriage.
Kirby Dick better have a good lawyer.
There was ever any evidence that that Foley didi anything other than send provacative text messages. While that is disturbing to me, it is far from a charge of molestation.
It is done for the express purpose of misleading you. Remember Mrs. Rock Hudson?
Boy, that's a heckuva principle. Sarah was treated terribly, so everyone else should be, too. Those are real words to live by.
The left is outing these supposed homosexuals only because they don't vote as the left believes all homosexuals should vote. It's also the reason they demonize conservative blacks and conservative women (like Sarah).
But, you're down with it. Cool.
Crist is supposedly MINO. He needed a cover marriage because of all the rumors about him in case he was picked for VP in 2008 or runs for Senate in 2010. He supposedly has been seen in gay bars in Florida. I do not know his sexual preference and do not care.
So....Obama says gays shouldn’t marry. Obama is accused of gay relationships. why isn’t he on this outted list???
