A popular alternative Left-Wing news website has revealed the ugly side of its liberal readership after publishing a link to a story about the suicide of a homosexual business owner in Florida.
Henry Hamilton, aged 64, of Key West, Florida, was a respectable local businessman, owner of the “Tropical Tan” salon. Recently business had not been so good and Mr Hamilton had become severely depressed about it, causing his partner and friends to worry about his welfare, to the extent of asking local police to check on the older man at his home regularly.
For whatever reason, Mr Hamilton blamed President Obama and his economic policies for the hardships he and his business were suffering, so much so that he told his partner, Michael Cossey, that “if Obama gets re-elected I’m not going to be around”. Shortly after President Obama’s re-election, a routine police welfare check found the unhappy local resident dead in his home, bottles of pills by his side and a note reading “F____ Obama” written on his will.
Clearly Mr Hamilton was under pressure because of his failing business, a situation made all the worse by his advancing years which meant he could hardly expect to start in business again. His suicide was very obviously a disproportionate reaction to the re-election which was the final straw, a trigger that brought things to a head for the unhappy man. A sad end to a tragic tale of the hardships many people are suffering under.
So when the left-wing / liberal alternative news website “Disinfo” posted a link to the Miami Herald’s story on its Facebook page, blithely asking its readers “Is this becoming a trend?” the jubilant and at times vicious reaction of its readers was deeply disturbing. Rather than what might perhaps be the expected response of pity for a well known local member of the gay community and small business owner, Obama supporters and other liberals were out in force, rejoicing that a homosexual that didn’t support President Obama had killed himself.
Here are a selection of the comments. WARNING: some of these are upsetting and deeply offensive. As the comments were made in a public forum, I have simply copied and pasted them without redacting names or pseudonyms:
Bridget Maryott: “Natural selection at its finest”
Timmy Huffman: “Too bad he didn’t round up some like minded friends and make a suicide party out of it” [Whether Timothy means other homosexuals or simply other people who didn’t vote for the President is unclear].
Robert Elder: “One less moron”
Mike Ginevicz: “Evolution of natural selection” [Mr Ginevicz seems unaware that natural selection itself does not evolve, it is the process by which evolution happens].
Alejandro Rico: “one less dumbass I guess….long live Evolution!!!!”
