Glenn Greenwald has a brave and absolutely brutal take down of Willard Romney’s national campaign’s finance co-chair Frank Vandersloot.
This guy is a disgusting, thugish turd who just hates him so homos.
In fact, he hates homos so much so that in spite of the fact that he lives in Idaho he helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to get California’s anti-gay Prop 8 passed into law, thus stripping gays and lesbians of civil rights that they once had in a state that this fucking shithead doesn’t even live near.
Vandersloot is a billionaire who uses his money to threaten and intimidate people with frivolous lawsuits in order to force newspapers and bloggers to not write about him.
And it is his bigoted, deeply un-American tactics — tactics torn straight from the pages of the Brown Shirt field manual — that have made many an honorable persons life a living hell — all because they dared to write the truth about this abjectly disgusting person.
Here’s Glenn Greenwald:
“In response to this six-part exposé — which won the Scripps Howard Award for Distinguished Service to the First Amendment – VanderSloot went on a virtual jihad against the newspaper and the principal reporter who exposed the scandal, Peter Zuckerman. VanderSloot bought numerous full-page newspaper ads in The Post Register that attacked the story and explicitly identified the reporter, Zuckerman, as “a homosexual” (Zuckerman had previously written for a small Florida paper about being gay when he lived in that state, but had kept his sexual orientation largely a secret since he moved to rural Idaho). Vandersloot’s full-page ad expressly described the “speculation” that Zuckerman’s homosexuality had made him hostile to the Scouts and LDS: “the Boy Scout’s position of not letting gay men be Scout Leaders, and the LDS Church’s position that marriage should be between a man and a woman may have caused Zuckerman to attack the scouts and the LDS Church through his journalism.” While the ad absurdly sought to repudiate the very “speculation” about Zuckerman which it had just amplified (“We think it would be very unfair for anyone to conclude that is what is behind Zuckerman’s motives”), the predictable damage was done. Zuckerman’s editor, Dean Miller, explained: “Our reporter, Peter Zuckerman, was not ‘out’ to anyone but family, a few colleagues at the paper (including me), and his close friends”; but after VanderSloot outed him to his community in that ad, “strangers started ringing Peter’s doorbell at midnight. His partner of five years was fired from his job.”
As I said — Mormon scum.
I’d urge all of you to head on over to Glennzilla’s blog and find out just what kind of people support Mitt Romney and who the Mittster will be owing in a major way should he ever get elected president.
This blog may not make it on Vandersloot’s radar — although many smaller blogs have and suffered because of it — but I’ll repeat what Glenn Greenwald said in his piece in Salon: if Frank Vandersloot and his lawyers wants to come for me for speaking the truth about what a disgusting cretinous scumbag he is then I say bring it motherfucker!
Because I’m willing to bet dollars to fucking donuts that this creep isn’t willing to go through the discovery process, and all of the dirt it would dredge up, that suing me would result in.
I may not have a billion dollars like this shithead, but I do have fairly deep pockets, a fucking awesome attorney whom I refer to as “Jaws” and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to hide — because its all already out there on these pages for everyone in the world to read about.
I’m wondering what Mr. Vandersloot has to hide and if he does have shit to hide does he want that shit paraded about in open court for the world to see.
And I would urge any and every blogger who reads this to link to Glenn Greenwald’s post in Salon so that the widest possible audience finds out about this piece of shit Romney supporter named Frank Vandersloot.
