Bill Moyers-Homo Hunter

Posted by ginnypub on February 23, 2009

From the Wall Street Journal:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, the Washington Post has obtained a few of the former FBI director’s secret files. According to a Thursday front-page story, Hoover was “consumed” with exposing a (nonexistent) relationship between a gay photographer and Jack Valenti, the late film industry lobbyist who was then an aide to Lyndon Johnson. Hoover’s M.O. was to amass incriminating personal information as political blackmail.

But as the Post reports in passing, the dossier also reveals that Mr. Moyers — then a special assistant to LBJ — requested in 1964 that Hoover’s G-men “investigate two other administration figures who were ‘suspected as having homosexual tendencies.’”

Amid “bits of dirt on figures such as Martin Luther King,” Judge Silberman found a 1964 memo from Mr. Moyers directing Hoover’s agents to investigate Barry Goldwater’s campaign staff for evidence of homosexual activity. A few weeks before, an LBJ aide named Walter Jenkins had been arrested in a men’s bathroom, and Mr. Silberman wrote that Mr. Moyers and his boss evidently wanted leverage in the event Goldwater tried to use the liaison against them. (He didn’t, as it happened.)

When that episode became public after Mr. Silberman testified, an irate Mr. Moyers called him and, with typical delicacy, accused him of falling for forged CIA memos. Mr. Silberman offered to study the matter and, should Mr. Moyers’s allegations pan out, he would publicly exonerate him. “There was a pause on the line and then he said, ‘I was very young. How will I explain this to my children?’ And then he rang off.”

Bill Moyers is disputably the king of unsubstantiated allegations against the Bush Administration. The only thing he despises as much as Karl Rove is a Christian house of worship. How his ass must be chafing now that the FOIA has exposed him as a little dirt-digging homophobic cretin; especially in light of the fact that no evidence has ever surfaced of Rove doing anything Moyers ever accused him of.

This video of a former Senior Presidential Adviser sliming another is especially SWEET.

    Where’s the stuff about Cato? Its suddenly gone.

    Maybe its because Cato is a LAWYER!

    I’ve been reading and I have to say I’ve seen nothing here but regurgitated right-wing radio. So sad the Repugs insist on sitting around with their collective thumbs up their collective b—s. They had a chance to participate.

    Moyers isn’t a homo like Repugs Larry Craig or ted Haggard (used to call George Bush regularly).

    What’s with all the sex stuff?

    Maybe if YOU had some good sex your frustration with the world might get toned down.

    Steely Dan should do the trick.
