George Mason’s Andrew Bunting calls NOM, traditional marriage supporters ‘pieces of worthless trash’

The assistant admissions director at George Mason University said that if you believe in traditional male-female marriage, like National Organization for Marriage, you’re a “piece of worthless trash.”

Andrew Bunting asked his followers in a post-election Facebook rant to read an article about the NOM, noting the group is  “not representative of the key pillars of American society.”

“If you agree with them then that is your opinion. Just know that to the rest of us, you are a piece of worthless trash.”

Bunting also wrote on Wednesday morning that he “woke up in a less safe world”:

“[A] world where women are disrespected, objectified, and abused […] a world where racism and bigotry aren’t looked upon in disgust, but accepted openly” …

MRC reported on the Facebook post first, with a screenshot, noting “Bunting has made multiple comments on the presidential election on his Facebook page, including claiming Trump winning made him wake up in a ‘less safe world’.

GMU president Angel Cabrera’s statement on the election claims everyone is welcome at Mason, including people who voted for Trump:

 Let me be clear:

If you are Muslim or Jewish or Christian, you belong at Mason.

If you grew up in Mexico City, Islamabad, or Roanoke, you belong at Mason.

If you are part of the LGBT community, you belong at Mason.

If you are Black or Brown or White, you belong at Mason.

If you voted for Clinton or for Trump or anyone else, you belong at Mason.

Bunting had called for the revealing of sexuality for admission:

In an educational environment where resources, such as funding, event space and staff, are becoming increasingly difficult to secure, why wouldn’t an institution want to have the most possible accurate information about who is actually attending? Consider the way universities already track data points such as race, religion, and nationality. Many of these diversity factors are visual, making it easy to identify students who belong to these groups. Sexual orientation, however, is not always immediately apparent, making it incredibly difficult to ascertain without tactfully asking. (Emphasis added, the Dispatch)
