Watch: Fred Karger Goes After Romney, Mormon Church on MSNBC


Gay GOP Presidential candidate Fred Karger uses an opportunity on MSNBC to ding Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church on Proposition 8.

Karger also notes that he has written an article in the UK Guardian today going after Mike Huckabee. You can read it here, but here's a bit of it:

"One year ago, Mike Huckabee said terrible things about my community and me. He compared gay marriage to incest, polygamy and drug abuse. He said that gay couples should not be able to adopt: 'These are not puppies, raising children is not an experiment.' Who the hell is he to cast aspersions on others? I don't like self-righteous bullies. So, I will from time to time bring up the hypocrisy of those others who are considering running for president in 2012. I have written three previous columns asking Mike Huckabee to apologise to the victims of these horrific murders and to the millions of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer Americans whom he brands as unfit parents. He certainly owes us an apology, as well."

  1. Someone should tell Mike Huckabee that kids aren't pigs even though Mike raised two pigs for sons. Sheesh, look at the Huckabee family photo online in the striped shirts.

  2. Good for Fred Karger on calling Mitt Romney and the Mormon church to task on their financial and political support of Prop. 8. I wish him the best of luck in his campaign!

  3. When he does this on FOX, then I'll be impressed. But on MSNBC you're just preaching to the choir.

  4. A "queer" American would be an unfit parent, if such a thing as a "queer" American existed! Fred Karger is part of the problem, verbally perpetuating corrupt concepts of LGBT folk. You can't lift up a minority group and disparage them in the same breath . . . Karger deserves to lose if he doesn't know any better than to spread anti-Gay hate speech.

  5. Stuffed, I don't find it offensive. Some LGBT people consider themselves queer, kind of like how many people reclaim derogatory terms and made them not as derogatory.

    It also depends on context on how the terms are used as well.

  7. The media will give this guy next to zero coverage pretty much no matter what he says or does.

  8. Huckleberry got all proud once he got the double-wide. He ain't been the same since, pushin folks around and barkin orders.

  9. This dude actually BELIEVES that attacking Mitt Romney will force the church into backing off Prop. 8 and endorsing gay marriage...HA, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha.
    Boy is he off track. This is a church that stands up for their beliefs no matter what is costs them.
    Heck, look at the BYU Honor code and the player they suspended. It most likely cost them the National Championship in basketball and thus millions of dollars. Did they back down? No.
    Mitt Romney is NOT in the hierarchy of church leadership and to oppose him will not affect the church itself one iota. Karger seems to think that the Church is run by Romney and so there must be a direct connection between the two.
    To borrow a phrase from the liberal left, this guy is a HATER and should be ignored.

  11. When I was a kid I lived in Utah, and the Boy Scouts was taken over by Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS Church). This, so called religion, practices underage polygamy, they send the boy s off on missions to divide the underage sisters umong the dirty old men of the clan. Now when these underage girls get pregnant, these same dirty old men, send them to the state to get their welfare checks . You should see some of the palace homes that are paid with welfare checks. By the way this is the newest religion that was created right here in United States of America.

    When someone hides behind religion to do or say something that is wrong we should stand up and point it out (right the wrong).
