Response to Rob H. (Reply #390)

476. It's odd that people keep ignoring Raw Story's article about Svitavsky's transphobic slur.

They keep going to other sites to discredit anyone who posted links to those slurs when Raw Story settled the debate once and for all.

Do they think ad homs will change the fact that Svitavsky posted some very bigoted things on social media?

Here's an excerpt from Raw Story's article in case they haven't seen it:


Bernie Sanders’ primary challenger appears to slur transgender people as ‘lady boys’ in unearthed Facebook post

https://www.rawstory.com/2017/07/bernie-sanders-primary-challenger-appears-to-slur-transgender-people-as-lady-boys-in-unearthed-facebook-post/

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has a primary challenger in Vermont — and it looks like his past statements have already landed him in hot water.

Jon Svitavsky, a homeless shelter executive director, self-described “Christian liberal” and first-time political candidate, appeared to make transphobic comments on a post he made in a political Facebook group over a year ago.

“So if a lady boy in high school, wants to shower with the girls, we’ll just take his word for it??” Svitavksy wrote in the “Chicago Style Politics” Facebook group on May 13, 2016. The post was accompanied by a link to an article about President Barack Obama’s administration’s move to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that align with their gender identities in public schools.

.....

Raw Story reached out to both Svitavsky and the Vermont Democratic Party for comment, but neither has yet to reply.

***

Those links are available for everyone to see for themselves, no amount of denial is going to change that fact. They're easily found by anyone capable of doing a simple search on facebook so it's not even necessary to look at screenshots to verify that those posts were made by Svitavsky. I understand why his supporters are trying to deny their existence but it's ridiculous at this point to keep up the pretense after so many people have seen them.

Svitavsky has been exposed in the media as a homophobe and a racist. It's not a question of whether or not he posted those slurs any longer, it's a question of whether or not that's a good enough reason to drop their support of him. It really doesn't matter who discovered the slurs first and exposed him, it's all on record now.

The good thing is that no one is taking him seriously, no one credible anyway. Now that the vetting process has begun it looks like his supporters are in for more disappointment.

If nothing else it hould be fun watching the circus.
