We’ve got a couple new ones for you today. First off, from the UK, a couple more homophobes in the UKIP party. Gay Star News reports:
‘Sure most Gay folk will realize they r [SIC] being used by forces of evil in attempt to upset UKIP progress’, tweeted Rose, who is hoping to be elected next week local to represent Ripley West and Heage ward in Derbyshire Council. He also stated ‘UKIP is not concerned with Gayness’, while in an apparent reference to gay sex, he clarified that ‘sordid frightfulness is ok with consenting adults’. Reilly, of the Newry and Mourne District Council in Northern Ireland said he agreed with Winston McKenzie, an unsuccessful UKIP MP candidate who said he objects to gay adoption as it is like throwing kids to the ‘dogs’.
Just to recap, gays are dogs being used by the forces of evil to trip up the UKIP. Got it.
In further UKIP news, the party sent out a flyer that appears to be both homophobic and biphobic Pink news reports:
Seeking to promote UK Independence Party (UKIP) candidate David Nixon for the Staffordshire ward of Stone Rural in Thursday’s local elections, the leaflet, which was sent to PinkNews by a reader, lists several factually incorrect statements by the Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child (SPUC), an anti-abortion lobby group which is opposed to equal marriage. The statements include: “Explicit sex education is occurring in our children’s schools. When the ‘Gay Marriage Bill’ becomes law, explicit ‘Homosexual Sex Education’ will have to be taught to keep schools within the law of the 2010 Equality Bill.” The leaflet illustrated a cartoon of a young boy holding a placard which said: “Rights for Bi-Sexuals We demand the right to marry With (at least) one man and one woman.”
In all of the marriage equality rallies I’ve been to and all the ones I’ve seen online, I have never, ever, seen a sign that said that we wanted the right to marry “at least” one man and one woman. They are so obsessed with polygamy. Makes you wonder…
Pink News also reports that the UKIP party leaders have condemned the flyer. So that’s something.
Finally, Joe.My.God reports on free Republic founder Jim Robinson’s rants about Pres. Obama, the Democrats, and homosexuality:
“When your godless Marxist president and his thuggish fascist cabinet officers and his entire godless liberty-hating socialist democrat party and sicko sycophant complicit leftist mainstream media and the god-hating, constitution-twisting black-robed socialist liberal activist judges continue conspiring to promote homosexualism and perversion as not only normal but a healthy, wholesome, desirable activity and way of life and then force it into the curriculum of even our youngest school children, that is tyranny! “When your constitution-loathing, Liberty-hating Marxist president and his constitution-loathing fascist cabinet thugs declare that the president can pick and choose which laws to enforce and which he can ignore, that is tyranny! And we the liberty-loving American citizens, my friends, are armed to the teeth and we will remain armed to the teeth and we will remain vigilant and ready. Coiled like a rattlesnake and ready to strike. DON’T TREAD ON ME!!”
And yes, he looks exactly like you’d expect them to look – a mustached white heavyset redneck in a baseball cap. Joe points out helpfully that Mr. Robinson writes his antigovernment rants from his own government supplied wheelchair.
“Keep your government hands off my Medicare.” Typical.
