A video tribute for accused child rapist, gay activist, and major Democratic donor Terry Bean was removed from YouTube by Basic Rights Oregon after the news broke of his alleged crime.
But not before Gotnews.com obtained a copy of the nine minute film, which includes the songs “Wild Thing” and “Don’t Stop Believing.”
“[Bean’s] been willing to get in people’s face about this issue for decades,” said former Governor Barbara Roberts, a Bean supporter, in the video. “He’s stood toe to toe, eye to eye with presidents of the United States like Bill Clinton, vice presidents, United States senators, members of Congress, governors.”
Bean is the founder of the Human Rights Campaign, a left-wing gay activist organization that leaked the IRS returns of the National Organization for Marriage, and which has been key to pushing gay marriage across the country.
Politicians that are pictured with Bean in the tribute video include Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Ron Wyden, Ted Kennedy, John Edwards, Howard Dean, Ted Kulongoski, among many others.
“Terry has always been the barrier breaker,” said Senator Ron Wyden in the tribute video. “He’s always been the activist. He’s always been the person who would pick up our spirits. He’d do the nuts and bolts of organizing. He’d put on one fundraiser after another. And in case anyone was wondering he’d still have time for his beloved Oregon Ducks.”
Later in the video Wyden calls Bean Oregon’s “bionic man.”
Oregon’s former Democratic governor (2003-2011) Ted Kulongonski told Bean “I told ya” to “keep pushing and I’ll always be there with you.”
Roey Thrope, the former executive director of Basic Rights Oregon, said that Bean “invented being gay.”
Democrat operative and Human Rights Campaign board member Hilary Rosen said that Bean is “still struggling as an activist and that’s why I appreciate him.”
Bean was behind the plan to purchase the Human Rights Campaign’s huge building in DC.
