Kirk Cameron: 'I Respect' Todd Akin — VIDEO


Former child star turned right-wing religious activist Kirk Cameron defended Todd Akin in a CNN appearance this morning:

“He clearly is a pro-life advocate, and for that, I respect him...He said that he misspoke and that he misphrased something and that he apologized...I’m the kind of person that believes that I would like to be evaluated by my entire career and my entire life, not two words that I would misspeak and then later apologize for,” he said. “So he’s in a tough spot.”


In related news, Paul Ryan made a "not brief" call to Akin yesterday. Didn't stop him from putting his video out though.

  1. Indeed. He's in a tough spot. A spot in which he needn't be if he weren't trying so hard to turn the United States into Rethuglistan.

  2. Oh what a surprise!

  3. Really Kirk? That's what you think this is about? Two words? Yeah, the two words were horrible. But to think this man is in the position he's in, yet thinks that the female body has some built in mechanism that makes her not get pregnant from a rape, that's what this is about. That wasn't an unfortunate choice of words, that's a flawed way of thinking. And that's even aside the debate of a rape victim being forced to carry her rapists baby.

  4. Hey idiot, you are going to be remembered as a homo-hostile tool! So why does reputation matter to you?

  5. What's wrong Kirk? Were you afraid your ignorance and irrelevance weren't well enough established?

  6. I would really like to put my cock in Kirk Cameron's mouth if only to shut him up for awhile.

  8. Two words, sure. But what explains his utter lack of education about basic human biology? Humans aren't kangaroos. They can't magically pause their pregnancies on a whim.

  9. it'd be nice to know if republicans are really adept at reframing arguments or if they're really that stupid...

    Surely no one would be upset because a man on the science committee lacks some basic knowledge of human anatomy and physiology

  10. Sorry, but why is this guy on TV spouting his inane opinion?

  11. As Rachel Maddow so clearly demonstrated Akin's comment was in a long line of teh disgusting Reublican rhetoric of tyring to blame the victim and claim if she got pregnant then it wasn't "real rape" and she got what she desrved. So, yes, fine - let's judge Akin by his whole career - that whole career of wanting to refuse abortion for victims of rape and incest. It curdles my stomach.

    Besides, wht'a Kirk doing jumping into this, I thought he was packing for the Rapture?

  12. Huh ?
    "Two words".......I thought what I heard was nonsensical medical theory coupled with an attempt to undermine the definition of rape in common law that has stood since long before the USA was even founded or 'discovered'.
    What part of "rape" needs redefinition ?
    Especially by maggots such as Akin and Ryan .

  14. How did he "use the wrong words"? Akin made an absurd statement about a woman's reproductive capacity shutting down in the case of "legitimate rape". That is just untrue and he should have known it. Kirk now joins Victoria Jackson in the washed up pseudo celebrities said outrageous things category.

  15. I'm cool with outing Kirk at any time...

  16. Kirk, we already know you're an Ass-Hat. Shut up.

  17. Obama is right “Rape is Rape”; Rape: “take away by force”; Democrats in the closet rapists?

    Akin makes one mistake and told to drop out, while most make a dozen mistakes and told forgive them. But Todd Akin that didn’t rape is worse than the rapist by many.The Republicans are lately being guilty of hypocrisy. Anyone casting the first stone?

    People are swayed by what the media says and for the GOP to not have a backbone speaks volumes, and can be seen as worse than the Democrats. The GOP burned many republicans by pushing for the most far left candidate in the presidential race, and they are burning the rest of their base to not be united like the Democrats.

    Even some top left leaning news sites are making rape jokes which that is considered perfectly acceptable to them? Hypocrisy.

  18. Just what Akin needs, Kirk Cameron to go on TV and defend him. They are both headed to obscurity on a speeding rollercoaster.

  19. Two morons.

  22. I suppose that when Kirk Cameron rapes a woman he tells her to lie back and enjoy it.

  23. fun fact - Kirk's mother has been trying to retroactively abort him for decades.

  24. Who are the people who are putting this no-talent has-been on the air to spout his irrelevant opinions?

    While we're at it, let's find out what Tina Yothers thinks about climate change, who Malcolm Jamal-Warner is endorsing for president, and Tootie from Facts of Life's opinion of the Higgs Boson particle.
