Let's be honest folks... If Buck were a Conservative with 2 dead Black dudes...this would be MUCH bigger news. That said, I heard on the radio people are protesting at his home.

Re: Another Black Man is found dead in home of California Democratic donor Ed Buck

I guess folks are distancing themselves...

Ted Lieu’s Campaign Dumps Ed Buck Money After Free Beacon Inquiry

The campaign of Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu announced Tuesday night it would be distancing itself from $18,500 in contributions the congressman has received in recent years from liberal donor Ed Buck after the Washington Free Beacon inquired about the money.The Advocate reported that an unidentified "young African American man" died in Buck's apartment early Monday morning, marking the second time an individual has died in Buck's West Hollywood apartment. Gemmel Moore, a male escort, died in Buck's residence during the summer of 2017. Moore's death was ruled an accidental methamphetamine overdose."I've become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that," Moore wrote in his journal in December 2016. "Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth."

You are right there ... the conservative gay sex/drug party angle would be too good for any news org to pass up. Though all the news agencies glazed over Epstein's child sex party rumors for a really long time, so maybe it has more to do with $$$ than party affiliation.

I disagree that it's net worth. Secretly gay men who support anti-gay laws are a lot more likely to be outed. Those who support anti-gay laws are also much more likely to be conservatives.

There's no friggin' way you're gonna know how a "secretly gay" man votes on issues. They aren't gonna advertise it in the gay community, that's for sure. And they aren't going to do it in the straight community, either. It's going to be a very personal issue, and you won't know until they've already done it several times over, probably a decade or so later, etc.

By the way, the Hispanic Community, about 2/3 of it, identifies as Roman Catholic (there are roughly 50 million in the US). So, I'm not so sure about this labeling a Conservative as anti-gay is valid today. In fact, many Republicans, mostly the younger ones, don't have a problem with the gay community and support them. And I would say, most Hispanics vote Liberal, so you're not gonna know exactly how they vote behind closed curtains on social issues.

This is California. Even if the guy was Conservative, it would get a few laughs, and the news would move on. If Buck shot these guys with automatic weapons and didn't recycle like a Sunny Patriot...now THAT is what California is about and there would be mounting riots in the streets and politicians would be wearing circus attire and blasting Conservatives. But just a Conservative with a few Black dudes...meh. Gotta crank that shit up a notch these days, man.

The first guy died from overdosing on illegal drugs. Unless he was forced against his will to take those drugs, his death is his own fault.

They don't yet know the cause of death for the second guy. I'd like to wait until this info is known before I have an opinion on it.

There are still closeted gays in the public eye. That's what I mean by secretly gay. They aren't likely to be outed by other gay men unless they act like Ted Haggard, who used his pulpit to oppose laws that protected gay rights.

African Americans aren't too gay-friendly either, and they vote Democrat. But you knew who I meant.

If this guy is a rich donor, why does his place look like all the shitty apartments in LA?

Hmm, I watched the video ... the guy never mentions that Ed FORCED him to shoot meth. He asked him if he'd tried it before, and apparently he agreed to give it a shot. That's pretty much how drug parties go. Somone will ask if you want to kick it up a notch, and you say either YES or NO. Now maybe he wasn't in his right mind to make that decision because he was already smoking meth, but JESUS ... that's why EVERYONE SAYS DON'T DO METH IN THE FIRST PLACE!

Joeblow69 is victim blaming like a ninja. Anything to protect the Democratic Party.

You better believe I blame people for the stupid shit they do when they are on meth.
Funny that you are quick to believe methed up hookers, but don't believe Christine Blassey Ford.

Anyway, I'm not "protecting the democratic party", I never even heard of this guy before. Just the whole notion that his fetish is "watching black men hurt themselves, and watching them nearly OD is like the ultimate turn on" ... that's just ridiculous. I suppose it's always a tiny possibility, since anything possible, but chances are his fetish is the quite common one of: BBC & METH.

Do you really have to ask that? Everybody knows you don't do freaky sex dungeon shit in the good house. That's what the apartment is for.

Re: Another Black Man is found dead in home of California Democratic donor Ed Buck

According to this article, his previous house in Phoenix was worth $280,000. He has donated under $30,000 to Democrats over thirty years. He's not donating millions like Sheldon Adelson. That apartment is probably his standard of living.

Where are you pulling “I don’t believe CBF” from? I never said that.

And I didnt make it up. I’m telling you what the rumor mill is saying about the guy.

Did you see how frail that old guy is in that video? He isn't forcing anyone to do anything. What these hookers are willing to do for $200 is their business.
