Media’s Faux Outrage At Lesbo Bondage

We haven’t been following this story very closely, but here is a recent installment of the saga, via those selectively outraged moral paragons at the Washington Post:

Fired RNC staffer led program to recruit young donors

The Republican National Committee staff member who was fired for authorizing a nearly $2,000 payment for a night out at a bondage-themed club in California was in charge of a GOP program aimed at cultivating major donors younger than 45, Republicans familiar with the details of the case said Tuesday.

Allison Meyers, director of the Young Eagles program, asked the RNC to reimburse a GOP consultant for the costs of a Jan. 31 after-party event for young Republicans at Voyeur in West Hollywood. Meyers’s identity was first reported by the National Journal’s Hotline.

The expense, which was detailed on federal reports, has become a major embarrassment for the RNC and its high-profile chairman, Michael S. Steele, at a time when the GOP is hoping to capitalize on an energized conservative base for this year’s midterm elections. The committee said late Monday that it had fired an unnamed staffer over the incident; spokesman Doug Heye declined to say Tuesday whether Meyers was that staffer.

The Voyeur visit took place after an official Young Eagles dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel, attended by about 50 donors, according to the RNC and other officials. Hotline, citing unidentified sources, said Meyers organized the official RNC event and the after-party at the club. About a dozen Republicans, including Meyers, attended the Voyeur gathering, GOP officials said.

One of those at the club was Erik Brown, whose company, Dynamic Marketing, has earned about $160,000 from GOP campaigns.

Party officials said that Meyers tried to put the $1,946.25 tab on a credit card but was rejected; Meyers then asked Brown to cover the bill and promised that the RNC would reimburse him, these officials said.

Brown has not responded to e-mails and telephone messages seeking comment.

Brown has already lost business since his name became linked to the incident. Chuck DeVore, a conservative Republican Senate candidate in California, announced Monday that he was severing ties with Brown and Dynamic Marketing, which has offices in Washington and Los Angeles.

Doesn’t it make sense to take GOP fat cats to a bondage club? They would have to be gluttons for punishment.

In any case, besides the obvious hypocrisy of the clearly selective outrage (who is poring over the DNC’s filings?) and the absurdly small figures (less than $2,000) — isn’t it just plain wrong for our media to pretend to be so worked up about it?

Doesn’t their outrage at visiting a lesbian bondage show exhibit obvious and criminal unconscious discrimination in any number of ways? Isn’t it, in fact, implicit hate speech?

Isn’t it anti-gay, anti-sex worker, anti-women, anti-art, anti-self expression? And not that this should bother the media or the rest of the left, but isn’t it also anti-free speech and anti-small business?

But of course the latter especially doesn’t count. Unless it was run by ACORN.

Of course, in reality it was just a boner misstep on the part of a young low level staffer who was simply trying to entertain some young but still fat ‘fat cats’ at a hugely popular venue. Indeed, it was probably the idea of the fat cats in the first place.

Certainly by any normal standards this episode is a far less repugnant episode than Mr. Massa’s Rahm Emanuel ‘shower’ discussion. Or, for that matter, any given close-up of Nancy Pelosi.

And speaking of witch which, aren’t these ‘her people,’ her base, her natural constituents that they are trying to run out of business? This is Las Vegas redux.

We demand apologies all around.

    The only actual question is if it’s a legitimate expense. It appears to be a valid expense, so if people want to be offended by lesbian bondage, that’s fine, but I’m not, and I don’t think most people are. What consenting adults do in the privacy of their home or the privacy of a nightclub is their own business.

    Whenever someone throws stuff like this in my face I point out that I’m an economic conservative not a social conservative and that the Republican party has a big tent.

    How many customers at this place have a (D) after their names?

    If it had only been a bondage club for queer men.

    Then it would have been ok.

    Or rather, it would have been an advancement in human development !!!

  4. Mithrandir says:

    Everything is Ok, if you are part of the tribe. If you are not part of the tribe, and you do the exact same things, it’s wrong.

    It’s all part of the moral relativism of the Democrats. —Like when they use the gay insult “Teabaggers” for the Tea Party people. They know there is something wrong with being gay………they just can’t come out and say it.

    I wonder how many Barney Frank (furter) fundraisers were held in gay bars, strip clubs and/or discos that were paid out of DCCC and/or Frank campaign funds. Don’t expect the media watchdogs to do that research though, it would be ‘homophobic’.

    So SG – when Pelosi & her bunch get spankes in November, you think they’re gonna actually like it?!
