Gary Bauer: Gays Cause Murder

GaryBauerBlackandWhiteOmnipresent anti-gay noisemaker Gary Bauer explained this week on his podcast exactly why there's so much violent crime in Chicago's poorer African American communities. The culprits? Poverty, hopelessness, and ineffective public education.

Just kidding. The culprits are Democrats and gays. RightWingWatch has helpfully transcribed the relevant bits (while kindly tidying up Mr. Bauer's grammar):

I'd like to go to Chicago for a second. I about fell out of my chair watching a recent CBS interview with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. He was lamenting the values, or lack of values, of Chicago's gang culture, as nearly three hundred people have been killed in Chicago this year, many of them little kids. That's higher casualties than we're suffering in Afghanistan. Here's what Mayor Rahm Emanuel said:

"It is about values. As I said then [referring to when a 7-year-old girl was shot and killed last month], who raised you? How were you raised? And I don't buy this case where people say they don't have values. They do have values. They have the wrong values. Don't come near the kids -- don't touch them."

Well, thanks for speaking up Mr. Mayor, you're asking the right questions, but sadly you can't come up with the right answers. Certainly these kids aren't getting their values from their fathers because they don't have fathers in their households. For the past fifty years, Rahm Emanuel's party, the Democratic Party, has made it comfortable for many women to not have husbands in the home. Now Obama and the Democrats have embraced the radical idea of men marrying other men! How is that going to help the black family?

(It could help many black families -- LGBT ones -- by publicly honoring their commitments. And it might make black mothers and fathers less worried about their LGBT kids. And it might make black kids less worried about their LGBT parents. And so on. But never mind.)

Mr. Bauer also took the opportunity to ridicule Mayor Rahm Emanuel for serving in the Clinton White House during the Lewinsky affair -- and so, although it is old news, it may be worth remembering that Mr. Bauer's own presidential campaign, in 1999, was partially derailed by the departure from Mr. Bauer's service of several staffers disgusted over their (married) candidate's apparent improprieties with a young, blond female staffer.

  1. Everybody knows that the prisons are filled with criminal Christians, google what religion has the most criminals in prisons in America and you will see the truth, most criminals are Christians, that includes murders.

  3. Make no mistake about it, this Howdy Doody look alike is an evil man. If he and his ilk are able to elect Romney the progressive movement will grind to a halt for at least a generation. Vote in november as if your future depended on it. IT DOES!

  4. Well it's not like the non-Gary Bauers are saying anything smarter. I'm still chuckling/saddened at Chicago Mayor Emanuel's suggestion on the CBS Evening News this week that a lack of values keep gangbangers from containing their shootings to the alleys -- like all moral people would apparently do. With this in mind, here are 10 great ideas to help move the gangs into city alleys: http://www.chicagonow.com/fluffington-post/2012/07/gang-alley-top-10/

  7. Bauer is an idiot. In any case, too many African-Americans are impulsive and violent because they have no self-discipline. It is not their circumstance but their own lack of self-control.
