Equality Florida Twitterbombs U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio for blocking nomination of gay judge

October 2, 2013


In Happytown this week, we told you that Equality Florida planned to launch a Twitterbombing campaign of U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio in response to the retraction of his support for the nomination of Judge William Thomas to the Federal District Court of the Southern District of Florida. Rubio says it was because he didn’t approve of Thomas’ “judicial temperament,” but lots of other people say it’s more likely that he doesn’t approve of the nominee’s personal temperament either – you see, Thomas is an out-and-proud gay man, and that just won’t do among Rubio’s most extreme supporters.

So on Oct. 1, Equality Florida urged supporters to tweet @MarcoRubio using the hashtag #playingpolitics to ask him to stop blocking Thomas’ nomination.

Rubio’s track record on gay issues is … well, judge for yourself.

Marco Rubio: Opposing marriage equality does not make me a bigot.

Marco Rubio says homosexuality is a sin, but not in a judgmental way.

Marco Rubio: “I’m done” if immigration bill includes LGBT couples

Marco Rubio: Gay marriage is ‘about what society should tolerate.’

    I just can’t fathom [w]hy liberals who must sit around all day mocking normal peoples’ reservations to conjure images of their parents having wild sex on a sofa would assert our kind of reserve is wrong; but that we should fully accept conjured images of two men: one with poop on his peepee, and the other on his knees from a doggie position turning around to suck it. …Gay? Okay. I’ll wait for you here until you’re finished, but let’s please not talk about it…and please don’t look me in the face when you come back condemning me for figuring out what I’ve figured out laughing like a hyena.

    Thank you Senator Rubio for killing Judge Thomas’ nomination.

    Thank you for taking the time to read about the political favor Judge Thomas pulled in a civil suit I had before him in favor of the developers who judicially land locked myself and family and closed our thriving family business of over 35 years in the city of Miami.

    Judge Thomas sold my own property in exchange for his nomination by the largest democratic contributor in South Florida. This pathetic Judge decided to devalue my property, lock access to a front door I and the whole world used since 1935 because he is a judge and had the power to do so. I will make it clear, loud, will not stop until the World knows that Judge Thomas should not be in any position that represents the citizens of the United States.

    This is an evil, prejudice, do anything to get ahead character. He is harmful and chooses to break the judicial system for his own benefit.

    I have all facts should anyone want the truth rather than scream prejudice or think Rubio killed the nomination because of the man’s sexuality-

    He killed it because he is a inadequate boob!

    Rubio, thank you! Sincerely-
