Stupid Things People Say About Gays – The American Dream Doesn’t Apply – Deshon Porter for City Council
Do you believe that everyone should have a chance at the American Dream? So Does Deshon Porter, a may-be candidate for Boston City Council in 2011. Well, he believes he should have a chance at the American Dream, at least. In fact, Deshon Porter is running around the web looking to garnish support for his candidacy for Boston City Council in 2011. In an online petition, Mr. Porter writes:
this is to help me to get on the ballet for the boston city councel at large for the 2011 election if you believe that everyone deserve the chance at the american dream then join me send me to boston city hall I believe that the homeless sshould be in a home like invirment and given a chance to get back on there feet colleges should be open and afordable and not price to keep people out of a dream of an edcaucation all colleges should work with those who can not furnish there high school transcrip and a GED test should be part of the fee and tuition cost and for those who just want to work theGED test shouuld be free to those who are not working the MBTA should have more buses running and longer buses to help with overcrowding extra trains sshould run after 1am I will interduce ordenaces that will help boston get back to work. [all typographical and spelling errors as per the original post – consider this applicable throughout this post for quotes]
But that’s not the only place online Mr. Porter has been trying to spread the impossible American Dream. In fact, you can find him posting on the Facebook wall for “Protect Marriage: One Man, One Woman”
Mr. Porter’s Facebook page [screenshot here] goes on and on… and on… and on… and on… about his desire to find a life partner. He doesn’t understand why women don’t want to be with him and he wants to be married – to live the American Dream. He’s working on his degree and, as noted, running for City Council in Boston. If successful, not only would Mr. Porter “interduce ordenaces that will help boston get back to work,” but he will not “support gay marrage at all” in spite of being an “independent democract.”
In other words, Mr. Porter does not “believe that everyone deserve the chance at the american dream” after all – only that straight people do.
Here’s to your happiness Mr. Porter. I do wish you all the luck in finding someone to love, honor and cherish for the rest of your life and help you fulfill your American Dream. I found mine – but because of people like you, I can’t get married. Perhaps someday you will fight for all of our dreams rather than just your own.
