Pat Boone Compares Prop 8 Demonstrators to Mumbai Terrorists
When I last posted about Pat Boone, he was the voice of anti-gay robocalls in the Kentucky Governor's race in November 2007. Now, in a rant on the right wing's WingNutDaily, Pat Boone compares the peaceful demonstrations over the passage of Proposition 8 to the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India. It's much longer than the excerpt below, but here's the gist of it:
"Assuming you have become aware of all this, let me ask you: Have you not seen the awful similarity between what happened in Mumbai and what's happening right now in our cities? Oh, I know the homosexual 'rights' demonstrations haven't reached the same level of violence, but I'm referring to the anger, the vehemence, the total disregard for law and order and the supposed rights of their fellow citizens. I'm referring to the intolerance, the hate seething in the words, faces and actions of those who didn't get their way in a democratic election, and who proclaim loudly that they will get their way, no matter what the electorate wants! Hate is hate, no matter where it erupts. And hate, unbridled, will eventually and inevitably boil into violence. How crazily ironic that the homosexual activists and sympathizers cry for 'tolerance' and 'equal rights' and understanding –while they spew vitriol and threats and hate at those who disagree with them on moral and societal grounds."
Keith Olbermann gave Boone his "worst person" award for the rant. Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...
