John Bell Trolls For Cash In Gay Bar

By Greg L | 20 October 2009 | 13th HOD District | 33 Comments

Tonight Democrat John Bell, who is seeking to defeat Delegate Bob Marshall in the 13th District, is out at “Freddie’s Beach Bar and Restaurant” all the way down in Arlington with the Virginia Partisans Gay and Lesbian Club trying to raise campaign cash.  Not only is this several districts away from where Bell is mounting his campaign to overturn the Marriage Amendment and replace Marshall, but the place is a well-known gay bar.  I imagine many of his would-be constituents would be absolutely appalled.

AOL’s yellow pages has this review on the place:

Karaoke is the focus here four nights a week, and performers can descend the winding staircase from the stage or lounge on the baby grand piano as they belt out ‘I Will Survive.’ Sunday evenings are reserved for the Freddie’s Follies Drag Show, featuring Destiny B. Childs and a rotating cast of characters. Freddie’s is the only gay bar in Northern Virginia, but Lutz says his space is straight-friendly too. With daily dining specials like the champagne brunch buffet and entertainment seven nights a week, you’ll be glad you found a beach in NoVa.

How fabulous.  Northern Virginia’s only “gay bar.”  What a place for a campaign event.

The site of such cultural highlights as “drag bingo”, “Miss Freddies (Transsexual) Pageant”, and the “Arlington Gay & Lesbian Alliance Happy Hour”, this Arlington establishment celebrates values that are just about as opposed as humanly possible to those of the 13th District.  For John Bell to think this is an appropriate place for his campaign events demonstrates a tremendous disconnect between himself and the voters of this district that aspires to world record.  Given that voter registration information shows Bell only became registered to vote in the district in 2007, perhaps it’s simply a case of a homosexual activist not really knowing anything about the district he’s running in.

What is it with Democrats handing over the selection of all their candidates in this district to the Virginia Partisans Gay & Lesbian Club?  Every time they run a nut against Marshall, and every time they lose big-time.

    Greg, don’t know if you are aware, but Connolly is having a phone in town hall meeting on Wed. Oct. 21 from 8:10 to 9:10 in the evening. I just got an invite tonight. Not much of a heads up. Sorry for going off topic. I thought you might like the info.

    Politically, this is either terminally dumb, or evidence that John Bell just doesn’t get it.

    Why would a candidate in a district that has gone pretty darned conservative over the past decade be trying to raise money in a gay bar in Arlington? Did Bob Marshall go to Montana to raise money from old militia group members? Why not stay in your district and not try to finance your campaign off of fringe groups like the Virginia Partisans, who want to overturn the Marriage Amendment? It demonstrates that John Bell is entirely out of touch with the district he wants to represent. The Virginia Partisans and the vast majority of voters in the district share no policy objectives whatsoever.

    Does John Bell want to represent PWC and Loudoun? Or does he want to represent the interests of the Arlington-based homosexual lobby that wants to strike down the Marriage Amendment, enshrine “gay marriage” as a right, and ensure that elementary schoolchildren are “age appropriately” instructed about the practice of homosexuality? The Virginia Partisans are an awfully fringe homosexual “rights” group that advocates policies that a significant proportion of the electorate in this district would violently recoil from.

    For Bell to make it so patently obvious who he depends on for support is just plain stupid. Does this guy think he’s running in San Francisco?

    What I don’t understand is that almost every person here would agree…we want government out of our lives. Bob Marshall wants to be in our bedrooms! Honestly, it doesn’t bother me, as a voter in PWC, if a gay couple wants to spend their lives together…hell, their relationship will probably be more loving, lasting and loyal than that of most heterosexual couples I know. Give me a break.

    Given the previous election returns and my understanding of the district, I’d suggest that the following are more mainstream views in the district:

    1. Marriage is between one man and one woman and it should stay that way.

    2. Demanding that others embrace homosexuality in order to make those who engage in homosexual practices feel more comfortable is not the proper role of government.

    3. The policy objectives of the “Virginia Partisans Gay & Lesbian Club” are as equally appealing as the Communist Manifesto” and Quadaffi’s “Green Book”, although slightly more conscionable than the charter of Hamas, but not by much.

    4. Those very few “queer-friendly” people in Haymarket must have gotten off at the wrong exit from I-66 on their way to Arlington or DC, and while they’re most welcome among us, we wonder why they’re not living somewhere else.

    For all those PC types. What is the purpose of sex organs? Ok, here’s one for you, it’s to provide continuance of the species. Get it? Now you can preach homosexuality all you want as some alternative lifestyle, but at the same time you need to emphasis that it was never natures intention. This is what is totally wrong in that we aren’t bringing up the fact that it is unnatural also. How many more things that are presently considered perverted are some day going to be considered ‘alternative lifestyle’? Don’t say it can’t happen, homosexuality is a great example.

    Anybody seen the recent research that caucasions are a dying breed? We are not replacing ourselves at the required birth rate of 2.1 per couple. That’s because we’re too busy being gay, working or just plain being narcissistic to be bothered with conceiving and raising children. So much for advanced education, huh? Muslims of every race are overtaking the world population. In 100 years they will be the majority. Bye the bye, they abhor homosexuality as unnatural. So, keep being tolerant. Your great-great grandchildren (if you have any) will shake their heads at how stupid we were. Of course, they won’t realize that we were once the greatest and most free nation on earth because that little piece of info won’t be taught at the neighborhood madrassa. If you liberals think gays are persecuted here, go live in an Islamic society. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

    I’ve lived in an Islamic society and trust me, homosexuality, though considered a sin, is neither prosecuted nor persecuted there. It’s pretty openly practiced in all the Islamic countries I lived in and visited. Gonnorhea of the anus was the disease du jour at King Faisal hospital in Riyadh 30 years ago. An entire ward was dedicated to sufferers of it.

    It takes money in an Islamic society to marry. And those with money have more than one wife, leaving those with little or no money no option for sex but to enter into homosexual relationships. Kinda like Catholic seminaries here. What would you expect? Celibacy?

    Reminds me of the question someone asked the bank robber, Willie Sutton. “Why do you rob banks?” He answered, “Because that’s where the money is.”

    Virginians rednecks who think this is a story. . .
    . . .soooo cute!

    Homosexuality is found in multiple species of mammals, primates, and birds so the ‘unnatural’ retard-redneck argument is out. . .

    . . .if you murderous and genocidal old testament gives you reason to pause, then take up the issue with your invisible-phantom-gawd-in-the-sky that made multiple sexual preferences to begin with.

    Grow up. Being gay is only a big deal to those who really haven’t much education or experience. And trolling for votes is the name of the game. . .

    Once in long, long while Virginians should do something to break up the stereotype of being some of the most sexually-backward ‘tards east of the mississippi. . .but the educated won’t hold its collective breath.

    Jay, your logic is terrible!
    God gave people the ability to make choices (exercise “preferences”) in different areas of life (which might be “good” or “bad” choices) - we are not robots. God wants people to make “good” choices based on what HE deems appropriate (as can be found in the Bible), not what society deems appropriate (if it is contrary to God’s Word). God considers homosexuality a sin (which can be forgiven like all other sins - provided that individuals actively try to turn away from the sinful behavior which demonstrates true repentence). Why don’t you actually read the Bible and see what it actually says vice using talking points that you received from uninformed sources. Just because people have tendencies/attractions/urges to certain things…alcohol, other types of drugs, same sex, too much sex, stealing, using foul language, etc. does not mean that they HAVE TO ACT UPON THOSE TENDENCIES/ATTRACTIONS/URGES. They have a “choice” to either act upon them (”bad behavior”) or exercise self control to supress them (”good behavior”).

    Jay, do you consider yourself to be a TOLERANT person and an advocate of DIVERSITY?
    If so, follow your own liberal advice and learn to “tolerate” people who hold to the “diverse” belief (different from your own) that homosexuality is a sin based on what God’s Word says. Otherwise, you should consider yourself INTOLERANT and not an advocate of DIVERSITY!

    John Bell is a fan of: Marriage Equality and Naral Pro-Choice America. Check out his facebook: http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Bell/1667150159?sid=0

    He picked on Bob Marshall’s concern with social issues during the debates. Do you wonder why?

    John Bell will work to demolish the Marriage Amendment. He will make sure that women can have abortion (killing babies) on demand. He says he is for fiscal responsibility (NOT) and doesn’t care if the state paves a wide path to hell.

    I’m surprised he hasn’t joined the BRUU. He would fit in with the Godless. He can chum around with Bruce.

    Patty, women can have abortions on demand as it stands, and will stand so long as Roe v. Wade is upheld. This is a national issue and there’s nothing any Virginia lawmaker can do to change this. I think its fair to assume that pro-choice individuals are pro-abortion. Nobody likes “killing babies”, but I do see Mr. Bell’s point in that, after 90+ bills drafting trying to restrict this right, his time might be better spent on other things, like drafting bills to provide women with better information regarding prevention. The point is moot, and when the legislators of the commonwealth only spend 60 days one year and 30 the next, I want progress.

    Perhaps my biggest concern with Bob’s candidacy is the fact that, on his letter which I received this past week, he claims to be a “bill drafting gint”. Not only am I not sure what a “gint” is and would appreciate a delegate who uses spell check, but I want a legislator who is a “bill PASSING” giant, not a bill drafting one.

    That said, I’m still undecided, two weeks out, and frustrated with both choices. Mr. Bell’s candidacy is based on his service, and Marshall’s based on his record…but I’m left wondering what the reality of that record is, and am sorely disappointed in the messaging of both campaigns.

    You’re going to base your vote on who uses spell check the best?

    Seriously, Bob Marshall was the author of the Marriage Amendment and the only legislator courageous enough to fight in the courts to get the unconstitutional transportation compromise (HB3202) defeated in the courts. Bob knows process and law better than just about anybody, and has won what many would consider some tremendous victories for Virginians.

    Of course if you’re more concerned with “keeping government out of the bedroom” as you say, just pick up the list of candidates endorsed by the Virginia Partisans Gay & Lesbian club and have at it. Vote for socialism and servitude with a clear conscience.

    The rest of us will continue soldiering on to protect the lives of the unborn, and prevent homosexual activists from criminalizing our personal and religious convictions that clearly tell us that homosexuality is an unfortunate aberrant behavior that leads too often to mortal diseases, personal strife and unhealthy lifestyles by those who decided to engage in it.

    Greg, did Bob offer a solution after fighting the transportation compromise? I admire his courage in being the only legislator to do so, but every day that I sit in traffic trying to get home to my husband and daughter, I wonder if there’s something else that could have be done that WAS constitutional. As a bill drafting giant, why didn’t he draft a bill that WAS constitutional, especially as he’s so learned in the process?

    I’m speaking from experience, Jay. I’ve spent much time in both the countries you name, spoke the language fluently, and lived and worked among the people. Homosexuality was rampant among young men. I saw no pogroms against those who practiced it, even though, as I said, the religion considers it a sin.

    Once in a while the western press will report punishments of homosexuals. I suspect that their homosexuality was used as an excuse to stifle the victims’ political activity.

    Jay, It seems silly and futile to troll for votes from people who don’t live and vote in the district you’re running in. Instead, Mr. Bell is trolling for money from inebriated, young, gay men so that he can try to represent a district that consists primarily of conservative families with Pro-Life plates, stickers from their church, and stickers from Conservative and/or Republican candidates on their vehicles. As mentioned earlier, he’d be better off trying to garner support from the people he would be potentially representing. No one likes carpetbagger, yet, that is exactly what Bell is making himself out to be.

    It is a tad strange that some folks desire to play in the human sewer system. I could care less what they do, but I don’t want my tax dollars to alleviate their HIV/AIDS. Out in Wyoming the ladies of the night demand the sheep herders that come to town pull it back and milk it down to ensure there ar no sheep pellets in under the fore skin, ergo, strabge habits have been going on for a spell.
