A New Hero in the Kennedy Clan

A New Hero in the Kennedy Clan

Last week in Aspen, Colorado, Conor Kennedy, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, was arrested charged with disorderly conduct.

A bar fight broke out at the Bootsy Bellows nightclub and Kennedy was seen punching a man. Witnesses have stated that a friend of Kennedy’s was called a homophobic slur by a group of men and the men refused to apologize. Kennedy’s lawyer stated “Multiple witnesses to the incident have reported that two men assaulted Kennedy after he rebuked them for directing a homophobic slur and threats to his close friend.”

Robert Kennedy Jr., Conor’s father, stated “Conor has always reacted against bullying. I’m happy he stood up for his friend.”

Could politics be in Kennedy’s future?  Fingers crossed.

One Slur Over Another

Paul LePage, Governor of Maine, chose to prove he is homophobic while trying to disprove he is racist.  Recently, Governor LePage made comments that “men with names like ‘D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty’ were dealing drugs in Maine and impregnating white women. The Governor has also said that he keeps a binder full of drug traffickers arrested in Maine and that more than ninety percent of them were black or Hispanic.

Governor LePage received word that state representative Drew Gattine accused him of being racist, so the governor called Rep. Gattine and had this to say:

Mr. Gattine, this is Governor Paul Richard LePage. I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you cocksucker. I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I’m a racist. I’ve spent my life helping black people and you little son-of-a-bitch, socialist cocksucker. You, I need you to, just freakin’, I want you to record this and make it public because I am after you. Thank you.

Rep. Gattine denies that he accused Governor LePage of being a racist.  Now we have a choice, Governor: racist, homophobe or both.
