The G In G-Man Stood For Gay

J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI for over 50-years, was a rabid right-wing fanatic who used illegal wiretaps, malicious gossip, and innuendo to blackmail Presidents into letting him keep his position until the day he died. His reign crushed the rights, the careers, and sometimes even the lives of countless Americans who had the audacity to disagree with “The Director” or whom he thought were “commonist”.

After finishing two, well-researched biographies of Hoover, I can also add another adjective to the mix: pathetic.  Hoover probably knew he was gay since high school – he just never could admit it.  He found it nearly impossible to change or suppress his sexual preference completely. The large “girlie” centerfolds he hung in his home’s bar embarrassed and saddened his guests.

For nearly half a century, his relationship to Clyde Tolson, who became the powerful FBI Assistant Director, was an “open secret” in Washington.  Everyone “knew” – but no one talked about it.  The dismal part is Hoover’s hypocrisy demanded he create a macho public image firing gay FBI agents and leaking rumors of his enemies’ homosexual dalliances to Congress.

Once, Tolson had to be hospitalized.  “Hysterectomy?” joked one FBI Agent.  Hoover fired him on the spot.

May I Have Extra Bullets With That?

ABC News: “Every morning, Lauren Boebert starts the day by getting ready for work. She puts on her make-up, fixes her near-perfect hair, and puts on a sparkly belt.

But the 27-year-old mother of four isn’t fully dressed until she straps on her loaded 9 mm semiautomatic handgun.

Boebert and her husband run a restaurant called the Shooters Grill. When they opened it a year ago in their hometown of Rifle, Colorado, going with a “gun theme” seemed natural. But Boebert took it one step further and began carrying a loaded weapon on her hip in public.

“I wanted to start carrying just for my protection. This is my establishment, so I didn’t see anything wrong with that,” she said. “[So] I began to open carry.”

It’s legal in Colorado to open carry handguns and Boebert isn’t the only one packing heat inside her restaurant. Most of the restaurant’s wait staff also open carry. The restaurant is so popular, Boebert said they sometimes sell out of food. She denies the armed staff is a gimmick for Shooters Grill, saying it’s about expressing their right to defend themselves.”
