Solid-gold Slog tipper Dan tipped me off to this PDF circulating among Republicans. This is a book demanding that Republicans throw Romney overboard at the convention for a more Republican nominee. It's sponsored by a formerly pro-Santorum group, and it's titled DUMP ROMinee: Why Tampa’s Republican Delegates must Dump Romney to Defeat Obama: A MANIFESTO. On the cover is a photograph of a male soldier kissing his male lover in front of an American flag with the warning beneath: "Obama's America - Romney's America."
The book is a litany of homophobic and anti-Mormon conspiracy theories, asking if Romney could be "a fibber, a charlatan, a con-man" with "the irrationalist DNA, polytheistic tenets and lie-filled history of the mind- controlling enterprise into which the GOP frontrunner and his forebears were born." It says he regards "manipulative, exemplary sex predators...as holy prophets" and accuses Romney of bringing gay marriage to Massachusetts as a prelude to the legalization of polygamy. The book is full of amazing sentences:
We’ll see that the USA is indeed a “Chik-fil-a Nation” – a country committed to traditional marriage and sexuality –partly because we’re loaded with “Chik-fil-a Swing States.”And yet…Romney has seemed unable to find a good word” for the restaurant chain’s traditionalist owners. "Those are not things that are part of my campaign," Romney said just days ago. It figures.
This is a deep dive into evangelical crazy-town, and I'm looking forward to sitting down with the whole document and reading it this weekend.
