Last night Newt Gingrich and his current wife were participating in a book signing before the anti-gay Minnesota Family Council’s annual dinner in Minneapolis when new LGBT hero Nick Espinosa opened a box containing glitter and dumped it over the two of them and yelled “Feel the rainbow Newt. Stop the hate. Stop the anti-gay politics. It’s dividing our country and it’s not fixing the economy.!“
The glitter culprit is Nick Espinosa, a 24 year old unemployed non profit worker turned social activist from Minneapolis, Minn. Espinosa worked with a non-profit helping unemployed people for two years before being laid off due to budget cuts. His encounter with Newt on Tuesday was in protest to Gingrich’s stance on gay marriage.
“Today, I invited Newt to feel the rainbow because he decided to bring his anti-gay politics to my state,” Espinosa told ABC News Tuesday night. “Newt has a long history of anti-gay politics and has chosen to focus on divisive social issues instead of working to fix our economy. I don’t think a free will adulterer like Newt has any ground to stand up while telling others who they can and can’t love.”
And this isn’t Nick Espinosa’s , (who I now want to marry) first stylized protest God love him.
In 2009 Nick infiltrated a Tea Party rally against immigration, in which he developed a fake name, Robert Erickson, to obtain a spot on the speaker’s list. Espinosa delivered a speech focused on anti-European immigration in which he talked about Christopher Columbus and chanted “Columbus Go Home!” In July 2009, he dumped 2,000 pennies on Tom Emmer, a Republican candidate for governor of Minnesota, as a “tip” in protest against a proposal to cut wages for servers and bartenders
I bow to Nick Espinoza. A brave American and a true LGBT hero!
Now if we could just get like 2 Million more of him we just might win.
