>“I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option–it isn’t.”
Carl Paladino, Republican, fucktard, homophobe, bigot, running for Governor of New York, said this over the weekend to a group of Orthodox Jews. Bad enough, right? But this was also part of the written text–given to the media–that Paladino didn’t say….aloud:
“There is nothing proud in being a dysfunctional homosexual.”
And Carl Paladino uttered this kind of hate, this kind of vile rhetoric, on the very day that eight men were being arraigned in a Bronx courtroom, charged with attacking and sexually assaulting three men they believed to be gay. Of course, that didn’t bother Paladino, who even said this about his Democratic opponent, Andrew Cuomo, marching in New York City’s Pride parade:
“This is not the example we should be showing our children.”
Paladino’s campaign manager,m and fellow fucktard, Michael Caputo, has gone into over-drive, telling us that Carl; Paladino is not anti-gay:
“Carl Paladino is simply expressing the views that he holds in his heart as a Catholic. Carlo Paladino is not homophobic, and neither is the Catholic Church. The majority of New Yorkers agree with him.”
Oh, so Carl Paladino is Catholic? Well, then that surely explains the homophobia. What is doesn’t explain, however, is having an adulterous affair which resulted in the birth of a child. Where were Carl Paladino’s heart-felt Catholic views when he was screwing another woman? Or, does he just pick and choose the tenets of the Catholic Church he wants to follow. Homosexuality is bad; adultery is okay.
Carlo Paladino, and Michael Caputo, and the Catholic Church, and anyone else who stands up and says this kind of filth is a homophobic, bigoted, fucktard. And they have had a hand in the onslaught of bullying, and bashing, being inflicted upon LGBTQ, and LGBTQ-perceived, people in this country.
Carl Paladino has the blood of those three men in the Bronx on his hands; as well as the blood of Billy Lucas, Justin Aarberg, Seth Walsh, Asher Brown Tyler Clementi, and countless others.
How can we expect anyone to stop bullying and bashing LGBTQ people when politicians stand up and basically give the okay for it?
Of course, now Carl Paladino is on damage control, running all over New York, apologizing with non-apologies, for his stance. He even trotted out the old I have a gay nephew spiel to show us that he isn’t a homophobe.
I have a gay nephew….friend….brother….sister…cousin….smacks of the same bigotry that you here when a racist tells you they have Black friends.
Let me reiterate:Carl Paladino is a bigoted, homophobic, fucktard, and New York, you don’t need that kind of governor.
