This guy is an assistant attorney general who seems to be obsessed with a gay college student. He's got an entire blog devoted to attacking this student - calling him "Satan's representative on the student assembly" - and he pickets outside the student's house.
There's an article about this at CNN, too, although the video clip is creepy enough, don't you think?
"Welcome to 'Chris Armstrong Watch,'" Shirvell wrote in his inaugural blog post. "This is a site for concerned University of Michigan alumni, students, and others who oppose the recent election of Chris Armstrong -- a RADICAL HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVIST, RACIST, ELITIST, & LIAR -- as the new head of student government."
Among other things, Shirvell has published blog posts that accuse Armstrong of going back on a campaign promise he made to minority students; engaging in "flagrant sexual promiscuity" with another male member of the student government; sexually seducing and influencing "a previously conservative [male] student" so much so that the student, according to Shirvell, "morphed into a proponent of the radical homosexual agenda;" hosting a gay orgy in his dorm room in October 2009; and trying to recruit incoming first year students "to join the homosexual 'lifestyle.' "
And - get this! - Shirvell defends himself by saying that it's "nothing personal" and that "political campaigns" are always like this. But there is no political campaign here, unless Shirvell is simply hoping for higher office with this kind of thing. (In today's Tea Party environment, anything's possible.) This is simply an assistant attorney general waging a really loony war against a college kid.
Ten to one, Shirvell just can't accept his own homosexual urges. He really is obsessed with this student, but I suspect that he masks his sexual attraction with these loony attacks. These days, you pretty well expect that from every virulently anti-gay Republican, don't you think? It's become the norm. But either way, this really is creepy as hell.
