Cheney Adviser Ron Christie’s Lawn Sex Fantasy
I imagine that conservatives would be less full of bile and a bit more happy if they stopped fantasizing about other people possibly having sex and instead got some themselves. I’m beginning to think it’s all that pent up repressed desire that makes them cook up angry, desperate lies like this one.
“Steve, is all that true — that descriptive account of what’s going on?” Chris Matthews asked me. He was referring to the lurid picture that my fellow guest, GOP strategist and former Dick Cheney adviser Ron Christie, had just painted of rampant licentiousness at Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan, where the Wall Street demonstrators have been camping out for the past few weeks. “College students who are out having sex on the lawn, people who admit they’re just there to be part of a good time, people are taking drugs, people who are breaking the law,” is how Christie characterized the protesters, later adding that “they don’t have a right to urinate on the lawn.”
As Matthews noted, that characterization seemed perfectly tailored to hit “all of the erogenous zones of right-wing outrage.” Certainly it meshes with what many other commentators and media outlets on the right have been saying. Asked if he had a message for the protesters, Christie said: “I feel your pain, I understand where you’re coming from, but go get a job!” For what it’s worth, I tried to point out that the images Christie conjured don’t line up with what I’ve seen. (While I haven’t spent a great deal of time at Zuccotti Park, I do live nearby and have stopped by several times to survey the scene.)
As the post later points out, Zucotti park does not have a lawn. That said the “Oh Noes! Nekkid Hippies!” portrayal probably comes from articles like this lurid one, designed to pander to religiously repressed septuagenarians who still think that the left is all about hippies.
