Utah GOP Official's Wife Blasts 'Wicked' Fred Karger

FredKargerUtah

There was never even a remote possibility that Fred Karger would win the GOP presidential nomination. Forget for a second his lack of name recognition, the fact that he's never held a public office and that he trailed in fundraising. The biggest hurdle for Karger, a former Republican strategist, has always been that he's openly gay.

But that was also the point of his quixotic campaign: to show GOP voters, and others, that there are such things as gay Republicans and that our nation as a whole needs to be more receptive to LGBT politicos. His message, however, didn't always resonate within his own party, as Karger learned during a recent trip to Utah.

Though Karger and Washington County GOP Chairman Willie Billings got on swimmingly, Billings' wife was absolutely incensed over the mere idea of a gay politician.

ABC News explains:

Karger gave Billings some campaign paraphernalia, including a Frisbee and a T-Shirt. When Billings brought the souvenirs home, however, his wife, Nanette Billings, threw them in the garbage and fired off an email to Karger, calling him "a radical idiot" and saying "thank goodness" he "cant procreate."
...
"My feeling is the only reason he's running for president is to find more [sexual] partners," Nanette Billings told Yahoo News in a phone interview. "To get more people on his bandwagon."

Billings also claims that Karger's campaign was just him "thinking of himself."

"He's not running for president to fix something in the country—he's thinking of his own personal agenda, period," she said.

Billings also told the Los Angeles Times that she "would never support him" because Karger cannot procreate, which she thinks is "totally wicked." Does that mean that infertile women are wicked, as well?

  1. Nanette Billings may be onto something. That's the same reason Rick Perry was running for president.

  2. wow. imagine what she'd say if her religion didn't teach her not to be judgmental.

  3. Hopefully Nanette Billings narrow focus isn't so narrow that she can't see what she looks like saying those kind of things. Giving hatred that kind of platform is a good thing when they really make asses of themselves.... Nanette Billings don't hold back, tell us what you REALLY think.

  4. Opps. Sounds like she either has a gay husband or she is hiding her own attraction to women. Can we say overaction certainly has lots of further meaning.

  5. She threw a perfectly good frisbee in the trash? She really IS an idiot.

  6. Oh No Nanette does realize that most gay men can procreate, right? She can't be that stupid? (But of course she can!) They'd just prefer to keep their procreation tools far from the likes of her.

  7. What a bimbo. Just because Fred Karger is gay doesn't mean he can't procreate; he chooses not to because that would mean getting close to the fetid swamp that her ilk is. The cosmic joke is that she can and more than likely her kids will be gay: Just talk to Liz Cheney, Phyllis Schafly, Mrs. Gingrich the elder. and, BTW, her overreaction is soooo telling. Thou doth protest toooooooo much.

  8. Oh, and if she's that worried about him being gay, perhaps she could just buy him a Mac Book.

  9. Such an idiotic statement. Gay men and women have been procreating their asses off throughout history. I'll bet my swimmers against this moron's husband any day. That I CHOOSE not to is a whole other story. There are millions and millions of American men who will also never have children. That doesn't mean they can't "procreate." Our biology works just as well as anyone else's.

    Does reading the bible make one stupid or do just stupid people read the bible?

  22. Are you people with multiple repeat posts using Internet Explorer?

  23. Why do people post 4-5 times in a row. I know it is some kind of accident, but hard to tell from KIWI nevertheless.

  24. The repeated commenting is happening on numerous blogs (including mine).

  25. Classic GOP (and, as it turns out, Christian) projection. Accusing others of being self-centered.
