British Bigots Just as Dumb as American Ones

I’m almost relieved to find out that anti-gay bigots in England are every bit as stupid and obnoxious as anti-gay bigots in America. Asked about whether gay people particularly like having sex with animals, a member of the UK Independence Party said yes. Because a donkey tried to rape his horse. I’m serious.

John Rees-Evans, who is running for Cardiff South and Penarth in May’s general election, told the bizarre story to protesters outside a new campaign office in Merthyr Tydfil.

An anti-Ukip demonstrator had asked him to respond to a string of controversial quotes by fellow party members, including on from Dr Julia Gasper in Oxford, who allegedly claimed that “some homosexuals prefer sex with animals”.

“Actually, I’ve witnessed that,” Mr Rees-Evans responded. “I’ve got a horse and it was there in the field. And a donkey came up…which was male, and I’m afraid tried to rape my horse.”

The stallion bit the “homosexual donkey” in defence, the former soldier continued, saying he leapt to the animal’s defence and hit the horse to protect it.

Bryan Fischer and Scott Lively would be so proud.

"Again, he didn't specify they were all human females."

    Mr Rees-Evans was jealous

    Standing for Penarth, bases campaign in Merthyr Tydfil. This fuckwit doesn’t even know where his target constituency is.

    The horses asses clearly outnumber the horses in that story.

  • Watt Ever

    But would Lytton Strachey have tried to insinuate himself between the horse and the donkey? I don’t think so.

  • dingojack

    Watt Ever – he would, if it were a dark and stormy night…

    From the article:

    Mr Rees-Evans’ comments came after the chairman of Ukip, Steve Crowther, urged members not to join Facebook or Twitter to avoid gaffes.

    “My advice: just don’t,” he wrote in the party’s official magazine.

    When you’re fielding a slate of morons, that is probably good advice.

    This idiot doesn’t seem to get what Homosexuality is. If a “Homosexual” prefers sex with animals s/he is not a Homosexual.

    “A dark and stormy night” belongs to Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Lytton Strachey was someone else.

  • matty1

    Ed, one point, if you are ever over here try to avoid using England to refer to the whole UK. Especially when discussing a story from Wales. There are people who get quite emphatic about the difference.

    To be fair, it was a pantomime horse. The donkey, too.

  • John Pieret

    And, quite apart from the general moronity, what’s up with this bit?:

    the former soldier continued, saying he leapt to the animal’s defence and hit the horse to protect it

    What? Was the horse not putting up a good enough defense and needed to be punished? Was it a kind of reparative therapy? Or was it a sort of lower-case “We had to destroy it to save it” situation?

    matty1@9,

    Come now; the Founding Fathers wrested their liberties from the tyrant King George so they wouldn’t have to remember piffling geographical distinctions between places which would all fit twenty times inside Delaware anyway!

  • Nick Gotts

    John Pieret@11,

    I think he hit the horse to protect the gay donkey: nothing homophobic about him!

  • tsig

    Since the donkey was trying to screw a horses’s ass John probably felt threatened.

    @ matty1 #9

    Perhaps Ed was just trying not to offend the descendants of the illegal Anglii immigrants.

  • lorn

    I’m sooo confused.

    A gay donkey tries to fuck a male horse. Therefore this means gay humans prefer sex with animals. I don’t get it.

    If gays prefer sex with other species wouldn’t the gay donkey have tried to have sex with a human male?

  • david

    The bible says thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s ass. It didn’t mention the ass coveting the neighbor’s horse. So, no harm, no foul.

    That’s what this story needs – fowls.

    Damn it, wasn’t some repug interviewed a few years ago when he admitted to doing that kind of stuff himself?

  • dan4

    @18: Uh, “Bigots Just as Dumb As American Ones” doesn’t make any sense.

  • dingojack

    Ok Dan, how about: “Bigots Just as Dumb As American Ones” … better?

    😉 Dingo

    Or just “Dumb Bigots everywhere.”
