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.

  3. @derrick From Philly

    "...and that's crazy right-wing Black nut"

    why derrick, i thought that it had been SO long since you had ANY black nut (or any nut for that matter)

    I am so sorry, I absolutely could not resist and I will accept a beatdown as punishment but Derrick, you can't set that up on a tee like that!

    On a serious note though,I guess that with me it depends on how said black right-wingnut comes about it as to whether they get on my nerves more that a white guy of the same persuasion.

  4. LOL @ "...SO long since you had ANY black nut (or any nut for that matter)"

    Child, please. The day I'm with a man and he shoots out black nut is the day I'm going to the emergency ward at nearest hospital.

    ChiKev, does "nut" mean the same thing in Chicago that it does in Philly? You know, like at the end of the porno video?

    Well, there's only one thing I hate more than black nut and that's green nut.

  7. What a sad and pathetic man.
    How can anyone have so much hate in their heart for something they don't understand(or pretend to not to understand in his case). He should just come out of the closet and admit he's an angry black man with downlow issues that prevent him from being a happy human instead of hatin' on the gays! This dumb dude needs some serious therapy.

  10. Ignorance certainly knows no color. What makes someone like this? Mostly what I feel is terribly sorry for his gay daughter. It's hard to love parent that spews this crap...I should know, my parents both voted for him in one of his races...and then I disowned them. Yeehah!

  11. It's so hard to understand how a man with this level of intellect could have lost to Barack Obama in the IL Senate race... ;)

    Seriously, the floundering death rattles of the Right are no less weird for their predictability.

  12. I assume he got to be somebody because the right wing will latch onto and elevate any black person who is a far right winger to prove that they aren't racist. He's an extremely paranoid nut case.

  13. I wonder if Alan Keyes has a wide stance in airport men's rooms?

  14. I just can't get past how deeply unattractive that man is.

  15. Keyes has the gift of gab and the ability to speak rapidly and with many big words coupled with extreme delusions of grandeur and self-importance. He's always been a moral scold who thinks he knows everything, but will never be anything more than a crazy fringe character welcomed on extreme right wing programs in that whole echo chamber. Having said that I'd love to bash his skull in with a baseball bat, but in a nice, just kidding way.

  17. It is said that we are what we eat. Alan looks like he has eaten his fair share of nose pickings!

  18. I'm shocked that bigoted negroes still exist-what next? a Nazi Jew?
