Monday, on MSNBC's Scarborough Country Pat Buchanan said this:
Look, Kolbe is gay. He is an out-of-the-closet gay. Foley was gay. The House clerk who was in charge of the pages was gay. Foley's administrative assistant, Mr. Fordham, The New York Times tell us, was gay. You hear about a lot of others. What's going on here, Joe, is basically these, this little mafia in there looked upon the pages, I guess, as their -- sort of their personal preserve. And it stinks to high heaven what was done. And it stinks to high heaven that it was not exposed and these types of people, thrown out by the Republican Party
This is not a statement deserving of a calm, rational, and well-researched refutation. Here is what it is deserving of:
Fuck you, Mr. Buchanan.
Fuck your insinuation that being an "out-of-the-closet gay" is something to be ashamed of.
Fuck your idiotic and paranoid claims of a secretive gay cabal lurking in the corners of Washington D.C.
Fuck you for saying "these types of people" should be thrown of of the Republican Party. How do you even throw someone out of the Republican Party, anyway? Stop them from ever voting?
But most of all: fuck your dirty and vile insinuation that gay men are sexual predators of children. Fuck that disgusting lie that you and your cohorts in the Christian Right have been spreading for years, backed up by no evidence, and contradicted by mountains of it.
You are a man without honor, Mr. Buchanan.
