LGBT Groups are Gushing Like Mad Over First Openly Bisexual Senate Nominee. Here’s What They’re Saying

Published

Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema is finding herself thrust in the limelight, becoming the talk of the town with the upcoming November midterms, as she is the first bisexual senate nominee in American political history.

As you might imagine, LGBT groups are simply beside themselves with joy over the whole matter, stating that Sinema is “shattering a lavender ceiling.”

Arizona voters shattered a lavender ceiling in selecting Kyrsten Sinema as the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate,” said the LGBTQ Victory Fund, the Washington Examiner reports.

The Victory Fund pledged to make Sinema’s sexuality a key issue in the campaign and have already painted her competition, retired Air Force pilot Rep. Martha McSally, as an “anti-LGBTQ” bigot.

The Victory Fund’s words were echoed by LGBTQ newspaper the Washington Blade, which called Sinema’s primary win “a significant victory” as she has become “the first openly bisexual person to win a major party nomination to run for a U.S. Senate seat.”

The Human Rights Campaign praised Sinema with equal measure. The Arizona congresswoman has said in multiple interviews that her bisexuality has made her a better leader due to the adversity she faced while growing up.

“Growing up LGBT is often to be tried by fire and to wrestle with the fundamental question of who you are,” she told the Advocate earlier this year. “Virtually all of us have faced bullying, discrimination, exclusion, or worse.”

Well, it seems pretty safe to say that this young lady’s political platform and campaign will be largely built on shaming opponents who might disagree with her lifestyle choice, choosing to make that individual look like a bigot and avoid discussing any real important, substantive issues.

Identity politics are most certainly going to be plastered all over this, which could end up having a negative impact on the already dreadful state of political discourse in our country.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
