Lars Larson is one of the roughly 28,000 regional Rush Limbaugh clones on talk radio, an ignorant blowhard who spews inanities on the air for fun and profit. And he has a staggeringly inconsistent and incoherent take on the fight over equality between the Cheney sisters. Why, he just can’t believe that Mary Cheney would say something about it publicly!
On Monday, Fox News host Gretchen Carlson noted that former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, had released a statement saying they had dealt with the situation “privately for many years” and called for compassion.
“That’s exactly where it should stay, it should stay private,” conservative radio host Lars Larson agreed. “And what I find disturbing about this, I have friends of 40 years who are gay. I don’t care. What they do in their own bedroom is their business. When you bring something to the public sphere and demand that government acknowledge, sanction and endorse gay marriage then there are going to differences.”
“I think it’s sad that Liz Cheney’s sister has chosen to make this a public fight to damage her sister’s political ambitions,” he continued. “And to do it in a way that doesn’t respect Liz Cheney’s personal beliefs or personal values.”“We hear a lot about personal values from the left. And yet it sounds like as far as the gay agenda goes, it’s take no prisoners and yes is the only answer. And if you don’t agree, we’ll do everything we can to hurt you.”
Jesus. We’d need a desk the size of Wyoming and one of the heads from Mt. Rushmore on this one. Liz Cheney is going out of her way to publicly declare that her own sister’s marriage, which she attended, should be nullified and that she should be denied equal rights, but Mary is out of line for calling her out over the use of her life as a political weapon. The only one trying to hurt someone here is Liz and the person she is trying to hurt is someone she claims to love and support. Fuck Liz Cheney. And fuck Lars Larson too.
