In Which, Yes, Michelle Morin IS a Bigot, and Republicans Say So, Too

2010 Colorado Grassroots Leadership Award winner and one of "Campaigns and Elections" magazine's top five Republican influencers in Colorado, Michelle Morin, didn't mince words in a public Facebook post Thursday, alleging that gay unions would lead to the normalization of child rape. In her own words:


Morin was commenting on her own status post, in which she declared liberty unimportant when compared to critical things like the founding fathers' (read: Morin's) definition of "virtue":

morin2But this isn't a blog post about Michelle Morin saying something stupid. You can read her own blog for that. No, this is a blog post about Republicans and Tea Party affiliated Libertarians finally having had enough of the kind of outright hateful bigotry Morin displays here.


One more screencap from Morin, incredulous that she's been called out by a conservative:


Doubling down on her disgusting insinuations about gay parents, Morin attaches a cute li'l smiley face to her, "Now I'm a 'bigot.'"

Yes, Michelle, you are–and the beautiful thing is, I don't have to tell you so. Your own party has that covered. Some quotes:

So by that argument, the married couple that I posted about, will also become "sexual preference"? It can't be one way for some humans and the other for others. Evil is evil no matter if straight married or gay married. Both sets of couples did awful things and should be punished! How about if we all get on the SAME bandwagon for the safety of ALL kids of ALL marriages?

This poster's Facebook profile picture says, "This Person Will Retire Gun-Grabbers in 2014," and she lists the Campaign for Liberty website in her bio. Hmm… must be a liberal in disguise, right?

Michelle, you are a bigot if you feel that one article about 2 evil men is proof that homosexual families are going to rape their kids at a higher rate than traditional families. Until you can have proof of that this is at a minimum slander if not worse. How about I find an article about how a black/hispanic/asian/muslim couple raped their kids, would you then agree the black/hispanic/asian/muslim race is evil?

Again, from an outspoken conservative.

Linking the gay component to the rape is like blaming the guns for the killing. Heterosexuals rape too. The fact they got 9 kids is another story thar should be highlighted, but to say the gay in them did this is just shameful and it is the reason Obama gets RE-elected with the economy the way it is.

This fellow is a fan of Tancredo and Coffman, among others.

Because no man has ever raped his daughter, daughters, step-daughters, adopted daughters, wife, etc….This has nothing to do with gay. This has to do with Wrong. Period.

This poster is a fan of Rand Paul for President 2016.

Republican leadership in Colorado has repeatedly failed to do the one thing they could and should do to develop a viable GOP capable of anything more than permanent minority status: Edit the party. Edit out the bigots, the people who boo the Log Cabin Republicans, the racists, the xenophobes, the sexists, and all the charmers like Morin who think it's completely acceptable to insinuate by implication that Colorado's Speaker of the House is in danger of molesting any male child he and his partner may adopt. 

It looks like, once again, the party heads will have to run to catch up with the parade they're "leading." Ordinary Republicans–even those conservative enough to think background checks are "gun grabbing"–are sick and tired of hearing from bigots who think their gay friends and relatives are child rapists. They're sick of losing votes to these disturbed party mouthpieces, and they're not going to take it anymore. 

Memo to Tea Party celebrities: Even your own fans don't want to hear this crap anymore. Don't take it from me. Take it from "This Person Will Retire Gun-Grabbers in 2014."

    Thank you PCG for giving props to those of us in the GOP/Tea Party etc. who are fighting against this kind of crap. 

    • Gray in Mountains says:

      But your reply Elliot, on FB, was not to the substance. It was something like "we can't tolerate this kind of crap if we're going to beat the Dems in CO"

      • ElliotFladen says:

        I've had multiple posts on this on fb targeted at multiple different audiences and with messages tailored to those ends.  Read the comment threads if you have access to my page. 

        • Gray in Mountains says:

          I'll not bother with that. I did stumble across one a week or so ago when someone confronted you  for disagreeing with the way something was said. Imagine that

  2. Duke Cox says:

    Well done, PCG. Great Diary.


    ….This has nothing to do with gay. This has to do with Wrong. Period.

    It can't be said better than this, I think.

  3. mtnrunner2 says:

    It's not so much her attitude on one issue that is awful (and it is), it's the terrible logic. Someone who thinks that poorly can be terribly wrong on any and all issues. The notion that if one breaks a single rule, then morally anything goes? What kind of crazy argument is that? It makes no logical sense at all. 

    A long personal history of accepting dogma on authority, rather than making rational judgments based on this world, can do that.

    But the Republican Party and elected Republicans remain silent – right? That's not the party showing humanity, that's just some individuals showing it.

    • ProgressiveCowgirl says:

      And what are parties but humans? Colorado's elected officials knew for years that marijuana prohibition was stupid, inhumane, and unpopular, but they didn't do anything about it, so voters forced it down their throats through the state constitution. Republican leaders know damn good and well they're on the wrong side of history with regard to GBLT rights, and now the rank and file will shove it down their throats since the leadership has been too cowardly to make a change.

      • ElliotFladen says:

        I hope more rank-and-file members, and social conservatives as well, start to see the problem with demonizing homosexuals; and not just from a partisan advantage POV.  

  5. BlueCat says:

    The party collectively doesn't have the guts.  It doesn't want to alienate the crazies who are such an important part of its base.  You know, like the fat percentage of  Rs who still think Obama wasn't born here.

  6. davebarnes says:

    I hope Michelle is one of the "top five Republican influencers in Colorado".

    As I wrote on her insane blog on 21MAR2012

    "God is helping Colorado.
    God created you and your idiotic rantings are helping to cement Democrat control of the legislature.
    Keep up the writing."

  7. Albert J. Nock says:

    I really did not have time to read your post line by line but I can tell you that age of consent laws or emancipation are completely within the Libertarian framework, actually mandatory…

  8. notaskinnycook says:

    As a Democrat, I LOVE this. People like Morin are the best friends we have. Poor Republicans! We tried to tell them they didn't want to let the crazies take over their party. Now thier turkeys are coming home to roost, and she's a big one.
