Rick Perry Event Disrupted By Students Seeking Anal Sex

A visit by outgoing Texas Gov. Rick Perry to an Ivy League campus was marred when students disrupted the event with sexually explicit questions, including one asking if he would have anal sex for $102 million in campaign contributions.

Ostensibly speaking to students at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., about border security and fiscal responsibility, Perry’s question time was marred when three different students asked questions harassing the governor over his stance on homosexuality. The students were led by one Ben Packer, a sophomore who wrote up a list of 11 offensive questions prior to the event and distributed them around campus.

Packer fired the first shot of the night, asking Perry whether “you dislike bootysex because the peeny goes in where the poopy comes out?” (RELATED: At Dartmouth, The Word ‘Fiesta’ Is Racist)

According to Sandor Farkas, a sophomore who was at the event, Perry politely deflected the question and then moved on to another, where he fielded a more serious question about his attitude toward gay marriage.

“I think that says a lot about the governor,” Farkas told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “When he was asked an inappropriate question, he politely dismissed it. I don’t think he was aggressive in any way … and then when he was asked a respectful question, also about homosexuality, he gave a respectful, honest answer.”

That wasn’t enough for student activists though, who disrupted the event twice more. A second question came from the audience, attacking Perry for a comparison he made between homosexuality and alcoholism during an even in San Francisco last June.

After the second question, the school’s College Republican president Michelle Knesbach interrupted to plead with students to be more respectful and stop asking lewd questions. Her efforts were wasted, however, as shortly afterwards a third student brought up that Perry has received a total of $102 million in campaign contributions during his various political campaigns.

“Would you have anal sex for $102 million?” the student asked.

Perry once again deflected the question, and after that the barrage mercifully ceased.  Farkas estimated that Perry was asked about ten questions, meaning that about a third of all questions directed towards him were of an inappropriate nature. He also said that none of the students were removed after asking their questions.

“A couple College Democrats stayed behind, too, for the obvious reason they didn’t want the questions associated with the College Democrats,” Farkas added.

After the event, Packer was unrepentant, and seemingly in denial about how badly his actions had been received.

“The questions — they’re funny, right? I think they’re funny. I think a lot of people think that they’re funny, but since the event had control over the framing of the questions, nobody in the audience laughed. They booed,” Packer told The Dartmouth, the college’s newspaper.

Packer also took to Facebook, where he posted a lengthy defense of his actions beneath a condemnation made by the horrified president of the school’s College Democrats.

“Who gets to define what is unnecessary and inappropriate? Why does Rick Perry deserve my respect?” Packer asked. “To tell me I represented Dartmouth poorly is ironic. The roomful of people chatting with Rick Perry without discussing his social policy represents Dartmouth poorly.”

This isn’t the first time Dartmouth has been affected by left-wing agitation. Last spring, a Cinco de Mayo party was cancelled after some students complained that its “Phiesta” name (a pun on the fraternity hosting it) was offensive. In March, students occupied the president’s office for two days seeking a battery of far-left reforms, and in 2013, classes were canceled for a day after students stormed a recruited students event to push claims that the college takes insufficient action against rape.
