Alan Keyes Compares Gay Marriage to Picking One's Nose and Eating It

Conservative activist and former presidential candidate Alan Keyes compared gays wanting the right to marry to a nose-picker wanting the right to eat his boogers in a talk at Spring Arbor University in Michigan on Wednesday, MLive reports:

KeyesKeyes said while abortion, same-sex marriage and separation of church and state are not basic human rights there are leaders who are trying to “fabricate” rights.

“People who sit on the U.S. Supreme Court take it among themselves to argue that somehow there should be separation of church and state,” he said. “Nothing in the Constitution requires separation, nor could it because we cannot separate the country from its finding premise without destroying it.”

When arguing what a fundamental right actually is, Keyes gave an offbeat example of a young child who had a habit of “picking in their nostrils and “eating what came out.”

As the child grew up they noticed others were disgusted and did not want to be near him. As an adult the individual argued if others have the right to eat what they want, the individual should be recognized as having the same right.

“How many think that is a fundamental right?” he asked the audience.

In a separate interview with Stan Solomon, Keyes said gay marriage would lead to communism and the "murder of the masses," Right Wing Watch reports:

The aim is not compassion for homosexuals, respect for homosexuals and all of this; the aim in the mind of these hardheaded, calculating, leftist, Communist, totalitarians is to destroy the family and to establish the notion that once you have seized power there is no limit whatsoever to what you can do. If you want to tolerate abuses then those abuses can be imposed upon the people. Once you establish that, the abuses are then not going to be confined to egregious outrages like this; those abuses are going to be committed against the whole society and they will in the end include the murder of the masses as has occurred in all Communist regimes that existed.

Listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I guess it hasn't occurred to him that he HAS the right to eat his boogers. (I sure hope his misapprehension of the law hasn't been holding him back.)

  2. I do pick my nose and eat it, and it's ok as long as I don't force anyone to eat it.

    Same with gay marriage: nobody's forcing him to get one.

  3. Oh, Lord. There's only one thing I hate worse than a crazy right-wing White nut, and that's crazy right-wing Black nut.

    Andy, why did you have to post a video of a crazy person today? We already have Rick.

    And the rain still keeps a coming down....

  7. I just feel sorry for his daughter...
    One possible reason to change ones name

  8. I am very serious in my opinion that Keyes needs a mental evaluation and very possibly needs to be put into a lockdown ward. That man is seriously screwed up in the head if he *actually* believes this drivel...

  9. Oh, MikeKV, let's be real. You know the GOPers long ago - starting with their beloved Saint Reagan - defunded institutions for people like Keyes thus allowing them to roam our streets and, good God, even get elected to Congress.

  10. Blather from an utter failure in every aspect of his life, including being a human being, and as a father.

    It's his hell, let him burn in it.

    I picked my nose and I got Allan Keyes. Biggest booger I've ever seen.

  11. So classy.

    Every day it seems the GOP strides to make itself less relevant.

    And, btw, they're doing a bang-up job of it too.

  12. He is one of those politicians that doesn't seem right in the head vs. just plain evil or misguided.

    I wouldn't stand too close to him. Who knows when this nutter is going to explode!

  13. Listen brain stem,go to any country who's legalized marriage equality and see if any of the crap you spew has happened!

  14. Sorry, I accidentally my last comment.

    It should say "....gay marriage COMPARED to..."

  15. Why, that little snot.

  16. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." This means the government cannot declare an official religion, nor can it prohibit others to believe what they believe.

    Apparently, the Constitution was written in too complex a fashion for him to understand.

  18. What an idiot. Gay sex (which is what this is really about) and eating your boggers are a civil right...just don't do either one in public!

  19. I remember when I first heard Alan Keyes' name. It was a scenario in a videogame called "Civilization II," and he was the president of the US after a religious fundamentalist takeover. I can see why the developers chose him...

  20. The guy is not very bright.

    "People who sit on the U.S. Supreme Court take it among themselves..." I'm sure he means, "upon themselves."

    "we cannot separate the country from its finding premise without destroying it.". Founding premise?

  21. Of which I am sure Alan Keyes is an expert. Good God, is that the best Alan Keyes can do to counter the very sane and sensible public policy of permitting loving, committed, consenting adults of the same-sex to marry? I guess the GOP is hell-bent on political suicide.

  22. Allan Keyes is nothing more than a token mad dog for the conservatives. He lives on the fringes of a Republican party that has no intention of welcoming him into their tent.

    He is typical of the type of buggers the Republican party harvests when it picks collective nose.

  23. And this why if you feel the need to call out Rob Portman,considered the alternative.
    Alan Keyes daughter being a lesbian didn't change him one bit,nor does it for thousands of equally bigoted parents who don't deserve the title.

  24. The nutters just keep saying the grossest most disgusting things their tiny little minds can comprehend to compare with gays and same sex marriage. This instead of any rational argument against. Because there isn't any.
