Watch: Yuma, Arizona Mayor Doesn't Want 'Lacy-drawered, Limp-wristed' Gays in the Military


Yuma, Arizona mayor Al Krieger says that George Washington and Abraham Lincoln would have agreed with remarks he made on Memorial Day about gays in a speech honoring soldiers who had fought and fallen for our country, Think Progress reports.

Said Krieger on Memorial Day: "I cannot believe that a bunch of lacy-drawered, limp-wristed people could do what those men have done in the past."

Krieger defended his remarks in a recent interview with KYMA: "I’m reluctant to compare myself to George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, but I did get some feedback, and I don’t think I said anything different than what they would have said."

  2. Abraham Lincoln shared a bed with Joshua Speed for 4 years, Joshua wrote in praise of Lincoln's thighs. WTF!

  3. You have to be a) living under a rock or b) cynically manipulative to cling to these stupid stereotypes. Gay soldiers of ANY era from Washington's army to Lincoln's Union troops to today's patriots have ALREADY fought and died for this country. And each of them could probably kick this sorry dude's ass six ways to Sunday.

  4. Apparently Mr. Mayor "dude" forgot a little thing called history!

    Seems the mayor dude forgot or didn't know one of those former Presidents he named knew quite a bit about lacy-drawered, limp-wristed people.

  5. You can always send the city of Yuma an email to express your opinions:

  6. Lincoln was a total queer (You don't even want to know what they originally used Lincoln Logs for). I doubt ol' sissy Abe would've minded a few soldiers in lace... or out of it.

  7. So we only should get tops to join the military?

  8. Said after the winter visitors have left, of course - the ones that swell the population of Yuma to double it's summer time size.

    Of course he defends his remarks. Then he his the real national spotlight. Then he resigns in disgrace.

    Yes, Lincoln WAS completely gay. Undoubtedly, just like this self-loathing jerk.

  9. George Washington chose to make a general of and put his entire training regimen into the hands of Baron Von Steuben. Von Steuben arrived with a young man who is believed at the time and now to be his lover. So, his statement about General Washington is without merit, historical reference or truth.

  10. Al Krieger has a mouth like a diarrhea-encrusted shit-hole.

  11. Apparently he doesn't know about Baron von Steuben, a gay prussian, who trained Washington's troops at Valley Forge.

  12. I'm not normally naive, but I am shocked that people like this can advance to such high positions in our country. That the mayor of such a large city (any city, frankly) would not only hold such beliefs, but express them openly. I'm beside myself. At a time when so many worthy people are out of work . . . it's demoralizing.

  16. Wasn't Alexander the Great a big mo?

    And as for being "limp-wristed" someone should show the mayor this video of the Peruvian trannies fighting the cops.

    Give those bitches some AK-47's and I'm sure both our wars would be over in no time.

  18. He's 'reluctant' to compare himself to Lincoln or Washington, but then he does, and based on what exactly? Where did either of those men make comments about openly gay soldiers fighting for the freedoms of America? They didn't. Not only is he misguided in his opinion, he justifies it with total bullshit and somehow gets away with it. Shitty comments, and shitty journalism.

    And since we are all allowed to say whatever we want without having anything to back it up - I'd bet money that he's sucked a few knobs with that mustached mouth.

  19. ridiculous old fossil.

    Posted by: nic | Jun 10, 2010 11:28:18 PM

  20. Look, Washington hired a big ol' mo to train his troops - Baron von Steuben, who was oddly enough, discharged in Europe for being gay. Yet, without him the colonies would have lost their little revolution.

    Stick it, Krieger.

  21. So no "lacy-drawered, limp-wristed" gays... how about the "rip your fucking head off and drop kick it into the next county" gays?

    Posted by: Rod S | Jun 11, 2010 12:06:11 AM

  22. Any actual uncontroverted proof Lincoln was gay? I know we gays like to toss that out, along with other famous so-called gays, but any real proof? verified by unbiased sources?

    Posted by: Marty | Jun 11, 2010 12:49:41 AM

  23. Yes, Marty, there is plenty of proof that Lincoln shared a bed with a man for several years, and there are letters between them expressing their admiration of each other's thighs (meaning, they were fucking each other between the thighs---a precursor to safe sex).

    Anyway, Yuma is a hellhole and deserves what it gets. Reasonable people don't believe such asinine stereotypes. And unreasonable people shouldn't be allowed to vote, but I guess that's just a pipe dream of mine.

  24. His ideation of "a homosexual" is well formed and overly well thought out. This kind of homophobia is a product of a very long struggle against strong homosexual attractions. This man is a deeply repressed homosexual. Think George Rekers.
    He might be pitied if he weren't spewing his toxic waste in public.

  25. I've been to Yuma.....

    A tiny amount of historical research would have let this worm smegma learn about Baron Von Stuben and how he singlehandedly got the Continental Army in fighting shape. Funny note, he actually hired a guy to do nothing but swear at the troops in English because he spoke German. And yes, Von Stuben was a Homo!
