Robert Morrow: ‘I Just Love Exposing These Sexual Hypocrites in the Republican Party, Especially These Closeted Homosexuals’
The chair-elect of the county Republican Party in Austin, Texas, is vowing to out Republican politicians who portray themselves as Christian conservatives but are in fact closeted homosexuals.Â
Last week, we told you how conspiracy theorist Robert Morrow â€” who believes Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush are all either gay or bisexual â€” won his race for Republican Party chair in Travis County, which is home to the state capital. Morrow’s extremely offensive language has drawn national attention and led theÂ Travis County GOP to denounce him.
In a subsequent interview with Time Warner Cable News, Morrow said he won’t refrain from criticizing other Republicans even though he’ll be a GOP official after taking office in June. Â Â
“If theyâ€™re doing things wrong politically, theyâ€™ll hear about it from me, and if they have a wildly hypocritical sexual life, especially if theyâ€™re a married man and if it involves adultery with strippers, hookers and gay prostitutes,” Morrow said. “I just love exposing these sexual hypocrites in the Republican Party, especially these closeted homosexuals. … If you find out a politician is secretly a gay guy, and heâ€™s religious right on the outside, we have a problem there. The lying and the hypocrisy are the biggest ones.”

Morrow told TWC News’ Stef ManiseroÂ he believes both President George W. Bush and his senior adviser Karl Rove are closeted homosexuals. He pointed to the case of Jeff Gannon, the conservative columnist who covered the White House from 2003-05 and was later outed as a former gay escort.Â
“You need to Google a picture of George W. Bush kissing the bald head of Jeff Gannon, whoâ€™s a bald-headed gay prostitute who was posing as a journalist in the White House press corps,” Morrow said. “It makes me wonder if Karl Rove got him that journalistâ€™s pass. It makes me wonder if Jeff Gannon was having sex with Karl Rove. Jeff Gannon was a gay prostitute who was known for being a top. Do you know what a top is, and a bottom? Jeff Gannon was a top, and he was running around the Bush White House like he was a stray cat.”Â

Asked by ManiseroÂ why Bush or Rove having a gay relationship would be relevant, Morrow explained that they based their re-election strategy in 2004 on getting anti-gay marriage amendments on the ballot in dozens of states.Â
“It was one of their biggest pieces to energize the conservative Christian base, who thinks that George Bush is a Jesus-loving conservative Christian man who doesnâ€™t cheat on his wife, so theyâ€™re epic sexual hypocrites,” Morrow said.Â

He also repeated his claim that Hillary Clinton and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry are “rampaging bisexual adulterers,” and that George H.W. Bush was a “longtime homosexual pedophile.”
“I think George W. Bush is like Rick Perry. Both of them are closeted homosexuals,” Morrow said. “Thatâ€™s my personal opinion, OK? And yet they run around with Bibles, telling everybody how Christian they are and how religious they are. You know, there are a lot of homosexuals in Austin, Texas, who can tell you what a queer Rick Perry is. And there are a certain amount who can tell you about George W. Bush and also George Herbert Walker Bush.â€
Morrow even endorsed a version of the theory espoused by Texas state school board candidate Mary Lou Bruner, who claims Obama has “a soft spot for homosexuals” because he worked as a male prostitute to support a drug addiction in his 20s.Â
“I think Barack Obama is a gay man who got married,” Morrow said. “I believe, when he was a state senator, I totally believe … that he was having a blow job and smoking crack while he was being sucked by a gay prostitute.”Â
Asked about his homophobic, racist, sexist and otherwise lewd posts on social media, Morrow defended them, saying it’s his way of holding politicians accountable.Â
“Iâ€™ll say something like, ‘Do you think Hillary Clinton would swallow your cum, or would it be more of a Lorena Bobbitt-type situation?’ And thatâ€™s my way of expressing my utter contempt and hostility and dislike for Hillary Clinton,” he said.Â
On Tuesday, the Travis County GOP’s executive committee passed a resolution condemning Morrow’s use of vulgar language and saying his “profane and slanderous” comments don’t represent the party, according to The Austin Statesman. Current party offiicials are looking into ways to prevent Morrow from taking office or limit his power if he does, but under Texas law, Morrow would have to commit a felony or not show up to meetings to be removed.

â€œThey have no legal recourse, and they are neutered gerbils, and the people of Travis County have spoken as to my candidacy,â€ Morrow told The Statesman.
In the TWC News interview, Morrow acknowledged that he won the race mainly because his name appeared first on the ballot and people don’t pay attention to party chair races. He also called himself “the nation’s No. 1 anti-Clinton activist,” but said his true passion is the JFK assassination, adding he’s 100 percent sure Lyndon B. Johnson and the CIA killed him.Â
â€œI just hope to promote flushing the commode on the corroded rectum of American politics,” he told Manisero. â€œIâ€™m like Donald Trump on steroids, sweetheart, so get ready to have some fun reading my Twitter feed.”Â

‘Taking Us All for Fools’: Critics Decimate Greg Abbott’s Claims and Defense of His Actions in Wake of School Shooting
Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott in a press conference that left reporters frustrated defended his actions and insisted his earlier praise for law enforcement’s widely criticized response to the Uvalde school massacre was the result of being “misled.”
“I am livid about what happened,” Abbott declared, blaming others for his “recitation of what people in that room told me.”

Critics aren’t buying his claims.
Abbott, who’s in the middle of a heated re-election campaign, appeared extremely defensive when reporters asked him questions.
“Let’s be clear about one thing. None of the laws I signed this past session had any intersection with this crime at all,” Abbott told reporters when asked if he would call the legislature back for a special session, as The Texas Tribune’s Sewell Chan noted.
“No law that I signed allowed him to get a gun,” Abbott insisted.
“The answers fell pretty flat,” opined MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, who noted the press event lasted just 36 minutes, less time than the police officers “stood outside and did nothing,” which was 47 minutes.
Abbott ended the press conference with many reporters almost begging him to take more questions. As the governor got up and left one frustrated reporter was caught on a hot mic saying “unbelievable.”
Chan, who is the editor in chief of the Tribune, added on Twitter: “Abbott rejects background checks as a simplistic and ineffective fix. Wouldn’t have prevented Sutherland Springs and Santa Fe shootings, he says. Tries to turn focus to broken mental health system.”
Former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi on MSNBC delivered a strong rebuke to Governor Abbott’s remarks.
“No amount of free flights, no amount of free caskets, no amount of mental health counseling is going to bring back any one of those murdered children,” Figliuzzi said, referring to Abbott’s announcement an anonymous donor is putting up $175,000 for funeral expenses of those who were murdered in the shooting and said the state will pay for mental health treatment.
Abbott also insisted that since Texas became a state it’s been legal for 18-year-olds to buy long guns.
Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime was murdered in the Parkland school shooting, blasted Abbott:
.@GregAbbott_TX responding to a question on long rifles “it seems like only in the past decade or two we have had school shootings.” Governor, the assault weapons ban ended in 2004. See the connection? You have actively helped to sell millions of weapons since then.
— Fred Guttenberg (@fred_guttenberg) May 27, 2022
And long guns of today, as Figliuzzi noted, are often semi-automatic “killing machines.”
“The governor seems completely unable to understand that he can easily make a distinction when you’re talking about whether an 18-year-old should buy an assault rifle or not. And all he cares about is a century of history in Texas on long guns. We didn’t have the AR-15 style assault weapons back then. He can easily make a distinction and say, ‘you can go hunting, here are the rifles you can do, you can buy, you can possess – and here’s an assault-style rifle.'”
“If he thinks that people are stupid and unable to understand that there is a clear distinction between a killing machine and a hunting rifle, that he’s taking us all for fools.”
‘I Apologize for Interrupting Your Press Conference’: Tearful Texas Democrat Urges Greg Abbott to ‘Do Something’ on Guns
The Texas Democratic State Senator who represents Uvalde stood up during Greg Abbott’s Friday afternoon press conference and almost begged the Republican Governor to “do something” about gun violence after Tuesday’s massacre at Robb Elementary School that took 21 lives.
Abbott was trying to place the blame for the school shooting on mental health despite the gunman having no documented issues, and told attendees, “we’re focusing our attention on the wrong thing.”
That was not good enough for Democratic State Senator Roland Gutierrez, who politely introduced himself and said, “I’m not making a political speech.”
“My colleagues are asking for a special session, you’re getting a letter tomorrow,” from the Senate Democratic Caucus.
“We’ve asked for gun control changes – I’m asking you now, bring us back in three weeks.”
Gutierrez grew emotional, sounding as if he was choking up, and added, “I apologize for interrupting your press conference about the needs of this community. I’ve been here for three days with all of these elected officials – this county judge has been working his ass off,” he continued.
“I don’t know how to express the loss of the families that I’ve talked to,” he added.
“You have to do something, man,” Gutierrez said, all but begging the governor to take action, and saying his “own colleagues are calling me and telling me this is enough.”

Watch: Right Wing Host at NRA Convention Likens 18 Year Olds Buying Guns to 3rd Graders Deciding Gender
A host from a right-wing streaming service covering the NRA convention in Houston decided to compare conservatives’ growing active opposition to the rights and existence of transgender people, to the majority of Americans demanding expanded gun control legislation.
“We are being told by the left that a third-grader has the knowledge to determine if they were born a boy or they were born a girl, whether or not they want to stay that gender that they were born with,” said Brian Glenn, Right Side Broadcasting’s director of programming and correspondent.
“And if we feel like at a third grade you can make decisions on your gender, then I think by the time you’re 18 you should have enough maturity – assuming you’re not a complete psychopath – to buy a handgun and exercise your Second Amendment.”
Of course, that hypothetical third-grader is harming exactly no one and later can reverse that decision if they choose, which the vast majority do not.
That hypothetical 18-year old, or, in the case of this week’s horrific tragedy, an actual 18-year old, buying two AR-15 style assault weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition within three days of their 18th birthday, gunning down 21 people including 19 elementary school children, cannot reverse any of those decisions.
