Still Crazy After All These Years

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

An Assistant Attorney General in Michigan, if you remember from some time back, is waging war against U of M's student body president, who is openly gay.

Remember, too, that Michigan's current Attorney General, Mike Cox, despite the AG's very own entire web page devoted to cyber safety, refused to fire this Assistant or even to force him to rescind his hate-filled blog.

The blog? Chris Armstrong Watch (google it...I ain't linking it...).

Again, the AG's web site on Cyber Safety here.

Let's hear what the Assistant AG has to say: "I have no problem with the fact that Chris is a homosexual. I have a problem with the fact that he's advancing a radical homosexual agenda." [CNN.com]

Anderson Cooper, who is NOT GAY, took him to task yesterday. Video here. Read the whole article; it's worth it.

But if you're as lazy as me, here's the most unintentionally hilarious paragraph I have seen this week:

Among other things, Shirvell has published blog posts that accuse Armstrong of going back on a campaign promise he made to minority students; engaging in "flagrant sexual promiscuity" with another male member of the student government; sexually seducing and influencing "a previously conservative [male] student" so much so that the student, according to Shirvell, "morphed into a proponent of the radical homosexual agenda;" hosting a gay orgy in his dorm room in October 2009; and trying to recruit incoming first year students "to join the homosexual 'lifestyle.'"
No hate speech there.

And what does Mike Cox, our current AG, who has a Cyber Bullying Task Force, say about this?
"Mr. Shirvell's personal opinions are his and his alone and do not reflect the views of the Michigan Department of Attorney General," Cox said in the written statement provided by his office to CNN's "AC 360" Tuesday night. "But his immaturity and lack of judgment outside the office are clear."

Shirvell said he works on the blog during his off-hours.
Powerful rebuttal.

Mike Cox, protecting our youth from Cyber Attacks. Unless they are Teh Gay. Then...just not during work hours.

I think Cox might have a hard time firing the guy under civil service rules and statute, if indeed everything he is doing is on his own time.

Cox might vary well be sued and lose on this one.

I await ATK's legal staff review.

BTW - That Assistant AG is SOOOO GAY! Gaydar is going off, way loud. He is self-hating, gay homophobe.

Super gay and smashingly ashamed of it. For sure. "But...but...I *can't* be gay because I love the baby Jesus...I must have been recruited. Damn these gays and their wily charms!!"

You sure AC isn't gay?

Mr Furious 10:57 PM  

I thought for sure AC was gay.

NOTE: Not a judgement, but as a matter of established fact (or non-denial)

Mr Furious 11:00 PM  

Chris Armstrong ought to be busting a harassment / stalking / libel move on this ADA prick.

As for Cox, I expect nothing less than this type of hypocritical ass-covering of a fellow GOPer. the fact that there's gay-bashing going on is just gravy for their ilk.

Damn these gays and their wily charms!!"

Hilarious!

These are the pearls of wisdom I find on this wonderful site.

Seriously I find those most often obsessed with this issue are those as Bob said are hating who they are. Very sad.

I think Bob is right. From what I remember from case law, there are a great deal of protections for public employees in these types of circumstances, plus a whole bunch of first amendment protections. At some point, he may cross over into criminal behavior, but it doesn't seem to have happened yet.

I wouldn't be surprised if this d-bag is somehow forced out of his job in the next few years.

UPDATE:

(CNN) - Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell - who for nearly six months has blogged about an openly gay college student - has taken a voluntary leave of absence, the state's attorney general's office confirmed to CNN Friday.

The office does not know the length of Shirvell's leave, but says that it will hold a disciplinary hearing upon his return.

Earlier this week, Attorney General Mike Cox defended his assistant's constitutional right to wage the internet campaign against Chris Armstrong, even though he said he considers Shirvell a "bully."
