You might have heard about Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell’s unhealthy obsession ongoing quest to expose an individual who may be one of our nation’s biggest threats: Chris Armstrong. Who is Chris Armstrong, you ask? Is he a known associate of Osama Bin Laden or other terrorist groups? Is he a spy for some foreign power who is threatening our national security?
Nope, Armstrong’s the first openly gay assembly body president at the University of Michigan. And why is he such a threat? Well, according to Shirvell, it’s because he’s…uh…well, he’s openly gay i.e. he’s promoting a dangerously radical homosexual agenda.
Shirvell is so concerned about this one student that he started a blog entitled the Chris Armstrong Watch (I’d check it out now before it mysteriously disappears) devoted completely to…Chris Armstrong. As Shirvell wrote in his inaugural 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.”
In fact, Shirvell is so concerned this kid is “Satan’s representative” (Shirvell’s own description) that he’s been stalking following Armstrong around, showing up at the 21-year-old student’s house to protest and videotape him, stalking monitoring the Facebook pages of Armstrong and his friends and revealing all the horrible truths about Armstrong on his blog so the world can understand that this radical homosexual deviant must be stopped! This radical homosexual deviant whose biggest triumph so far as student assembly president has been to…increase the hours of the school cafeteria.
Oh, the horror…
Now, as a concerned citizen, I have read every entry in Shirvell’s blog and I was shocked to learn such things as how Armstrong is a Nazi or at least a racist, elitist liar:
How Armstrong is recruiting our youth to a “homosexual lifestyle” by encouraging incoming freshmen “to open up themselves and others by being true to who they really are”:
Which leads to a number of disturbing questions. Firstly, why hasn’t Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox fired Shirvell yet? As of last night, all Cox had done was release the following statement: “Mr. Shirvell’s personal opinions are his and his alone and do not reflect the views of the Michigan Department of Attorney General. But his immaturity and lack of judgment outside the office are clear.”
I get it, there’s the first amendment and Shirvell can do whatever he wants during his own time, but the fact is he’s a public servant supported by taxpayer money. The Supreme Court has ruled time and again that the same first amendment rights are not guaranteed to such figures and the reality is that many public officials have been fired for doing much less.
Buy maybe even more disturbing is why is a grown man like Shirvell so “obsessed” with this one college kid? Well, for a possible answer to that, check out Shirvell’s interview with Anderson Cooper below from the other night. No one in the “legitimate” media has said this yet, but after watching this interview…well, let’s just say, my gaydar has been off the charts whenever this interview plays. Is it just me or does anyone else think Shirvell would stop his campaign against Armstrong if Armstrong would just agree to…oh, hook up with him? Or maybe this is just a future episode of Law & Order: SVU waiting to happen?
