Wingnut: Gay Rights Activists Just Like Terrorists

Add another entry to the bigot’s offensive comparisons file. Right wing radio show host Sam Malone says that gay rights activists are just like terrorists. And he seems to think that anyone who isn’t gay must, by definition, be opposed to gay rights. Because that’s totally reasonable.

On Monday, Houston-based radio show host Sam Malone criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality, lambasting the court along with the “extremists of the gay agenda.” These activists, he said, “are anti-tolerance and not one of them has come out to say respect the religious views of the 98 percent of America who aren’t gay.”

Malone’s guest, Texas GOP activist Jared Woodfill, similarly warned that the gay community is “coming after us,” reminding conservatives that “it’s a war that we’re in right now.”

“The gay activists refuse to preach tolerance,” Malone said. “It’s like dealing with Muslim terrorists, there is no tolerance. If 0.08 percent of the population are gay men, that’s 0.08 percent, who is going to stand up for the 98 percent who aren’t and are religious and have a firm foundation in the Bible and say, ‘This is wrong, I don’t want to be involved, you do it, if that’s your thing, you do it, ain’t my thing and I don’t want anything to do with it.’ Obama launched the war on religion in America.”

It’s almost an accomplishment to pack that much stupid into so few sentences. 98% of America is not opposed to gay rights. In fact, about 60% support same-sex marriage and about 80% support anti-discrimination protections. You’re the one in the minority here, Sam. And if you don’t want to be involved in a gay wedding, then don’t be. Don’t get gay married. Don’t go to a gay wedding. Stay at home and read your bible and pray. No one will give a shit. And if you support denying equal rights to gay people, you don’t get to talk about tolerance. Ever.

    If 0.08 percent of the population are gay men, that’s 0.08 percent, who is going to stand up for the 98 percent who aren’t

    You know, if I had even a hint of self awareness, I’d find it absurd that my life was so cold and empty that me pretending to be afraid of The Gays would somehow form a plausible scenario, shocking me in to abandoning the imaginary for the real.

     

    Luckily, I have none.

    “Malone’s guest, Texas GOP activist Jared Woodfill, similarly warned that the gay community is “coming after us,””

    Well I think it was very thoughtful of the gay community to let you come first.

    Shorter Sam-speak: “Why, those people never ever say our attacks on them should be tolerated! Can you beat that? They’re just like terrorists!”

    “extremists of the gay agenda.”</blockquote

    If that's extremism, I wonder what "moderates" would be like.

    “the gay community is “coming after us […] it’s a war that we’re in right now […] It’s like dealing with Muslim terrorists […]. Obama launched the war on religion in America.”

    Man, if there’s anything the fright wing dearly loves, it’s fucking war. If they’re not starting one, they’re looking for some untermensch abroad to start one against. If they can’t get anything going abroad, they’ll hunt for a new enemy within. If war as a metaphor evaporated tomorrow, they’d be completely unable to express themselves except by grunting and stamping their feet.

    And Malone has got the gall to show a picture of the statue of the scales of justice. Or is that some Iberian goddess holding a sword in one hand and a set of bolas in the other?

    The gay activists refuse to preach tolerance,” Malone said. “It’s like dealing with Muslim terrorists, there is no tolerance. If 0.08 percent of the population are gay men, that’s 0.08 percent, who is going to stand up for the 98 percent who aren’t and are religious and have a firm foundation in the Bible and say, ‘This is wrong, I don’t want to be involved, you do it, if that’s your thing, you do it, ain’t my thing and I don’t want anything to do with it.’ Obama launched the war on religion in America.”

    Stupidity that glorious deserves to be given an encore.

    Actually Matt, estimates vary, but let’s say your estimate of 2% (100%-98%) of the population of the US is likely to be homosexual is true (for the sake of argument). Then you think that, given a US population of 318,892,103 (July 2014 estimate, CIA Factbook):

    98% are not gay and firm bible believers, or 312,514,261 persons

    0.08% are gay and male, or 255,114 gays and

    The rest – are Hilary Clinton’s campaign staff, or 6,122,728 lesbians. @@

    So why do lesbians out-number gays 24:1? Are American men doing something really gross and icky or something? Enquiring minds —

    in this case, prefer to point and laugh at your raving (but largely irrelevant) idiocy.

    I know. It’s terrible. They just walk up to you and explode!

    No sense of style, either. Just bits of flesh and shit all over.

    It’s like dealing with Muslim terrorists, there is no tolerance.

    Someone who has probably never negotiated with a Muslim, much less Muslim terrorists, somehow understands their degree of tolerance? I don’t want to presume to know how much experience he has in this area, but the answer is no.

    Didn’t they already do a Cheers spin-off where a right wing jerk had a radio show? I preferred Sam when he was a lovable bar owner anyway, before he peed his pants on 9/11.

    So these wing nuts are the Christian counterpart to the radical Muslim hate spewing clerics?

  • Tony! The Queer Shoop

    Also, what is this fool scared of? Using his numbers, gay men* comprise a mere 2 percent of the US population. Thats @ 6 million ppl vs 304 million. And he feels threatened?

    Thats not David vs Goliath. Thats Aunt May vs Galactus.

    *once again, a wingnut ignores the existence of lesbians & bisexual ppl
