Sure, Iowa congressman and secret border control agent Steve King may allege that people will say they’re gay so they can file lawsuits for discrimination, but Washington Times columnist Steve Deace has a better theory.

Writing for The Washington Times on March 3, Deace condemned “the intolerant same-sex lobby” for pushing its “propaganda” on the American public. Deace highlighted the attention Sam, a star lineman at the University of Missouri, received after coming out in February. According to Deace, liberals pounced on Sam’s announcement in order to advance “LGBTQ propaganda” – and to shift focus away from the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
To quote Deace:
“Not to be outdone, a flailing president who seemingly has no time to give answers to the families of four dead Americans at Benghazi, or the millions he broke a promise to that they could keep their current health insurance if they liked it, couldn’t wait to jump on Mr. Sam’s bandwagon.”
Michael Sam chose to put his career and possibly even his life on the line to come out as gay ahead of the NFL combine and the coming NFL draft. It’s possible he won’t be drafted.
If his situation has become a distraction for liberals, it would be a worthy one as this is more important than Benghazi conspiracy theories.
And speaking of conspiracy theories, suggesting that liberals have merely feigned interest in Michael Sam to deliberately draw attention away from Benghazi is yet another conspiracy theory.
It started with Benghazi. When you kill Americans and nobody pays a price, you invite this type of aggression. #Ukraine
