TX Candidate For Governor Believes Gays Should Be Flogged, Running On Secession Platform (VIDEO)
As the saying goes, “everything’s bigger in Texas,” and that certainly could apply to the level of kook-driven bigotry that seems to be teeming from the Lone Star state as of late.
Just last month we told you about a charming group known as the Young Conservatives of Texas at the University of Texas that tried promoting a game called “Catch an Illegal Immigrant” on Facebook, and of course Representative Louie Gohmert has a long history of mind-numbingly stupid and bigoted remarks.
Now the people of Texas have someone else to be proud of. Larry SECEDE Kilgore (he legally changed his middle name from Scott to SECEDE in 2012) is running for Governor.
Kilgore proudly calls himself a “Christian,” and has advocated for the death penalty for adulterers and women that have had abortions. He might be best known for his extreme anti-gay stances, and for making up words like “transvestism”:
“Public use of vulgar sexual language would result in flogging. … Judges will flog more severely those convicted of transvestism.”
In an interview with Lone Star Q on Monday, however, Kilgore has admitted that he’s willing to roll up his sleeves and work side-by-side with the homos in order to capture the ultimate prize - secession;
“The only position I have is secession. I am a Christian, and I have lots of Christian beliefs. However, I am trying to build a coalition of all different types of people. I look at the lesbians and the homosexual folks and I say, ‘Hey, D.C. is stealing my money just like they’re stealing your money.’ After we get our freedom, then we can decide all that stuff — hopefully at a county level. Right now, lesbians and homosexuals and Christians may have differences with each other, but we’ve got a bigger enemy.”
The Everlasting GOP Stoppers tracked down this video of Kilgore at a good-old boy rally ranting about how he “hates the U.S. flag,” and espousing the virtues of secession back in 2009. Hey, at least he’s consistent. Frankly, I’d love to see Texas try to go it on their own.
Good Lord. You just can’t make shit like this up.
