Sen. Tom Cotton, the latest Tea Party trainwreck to be unleashed on the country, offered up his own “Dear Muslima” comment in response to the controversy over Indiana’s RFRA law and the question of whether businesses should be allowed to discriminate against gay people.
Appearing yesterday on CNN, Senator Tom Cotton (R) urged critics of Indiana’s “religious freedom” law to get “perspective,” suggesting the treatment of LGBT people in Indiana compared favorably to countries where gay people are executed.
“I think it’s important we have a sense of perspective,” Cotton said. “In Iran they hang you for the crime of being gay.”
Yeah, so stop whining! Sure, you’re discriminated against and often the victims of violence, but at least you aren’t executed, you overly sensitive, politically correct gay people! You should be focusing on the real victims of persecution in this country, Christians, who are on the verge of being round up and thrown into FEMA concentration camps by the homofascists in the Gaystapo! Seriously, a right-wing Christian telling gay people to get some perspective on persecution and discrimination. Irony is alive and well.
