This Year's Anti-LGBT Speakers At The Values Voter Summit Are...

Values Voter Summit

I suppose it would be glib, however accurate, to say, "All of them," but Media Matters highlights some of the more notorious homophobes, many of whom we have covered before.

Speakers at this year's conference include:

Ben_carsonBen Carson - a "conservative hero" who compared gay marriage to NAMBLA and was subsequently forced to step down as a commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins University, despite his backpedaling attempts to apologize.

Jerome Corsi - a Tea Party wingnut and World Net Daily writer who claimed that Obama was "gay married" to his Harvard Pakistani roommate, and issued the usual slew of nonsense about gay marriage leading to polygamy, pedophilia, etc. Rachel Maddow had fun picking his conspiracy theories to pieces.

Mike Huckabee - Governor Huckabee has never been a friend of the gays, but in recent news he slammed the Supreme Court for striking down DOMA, used his Fox News show to lie about transfolk, and is trying to start up an anti-gay alternative to the Boy Scouts called Trail Life USA.

Todd Starnes - the Fox News commentator doesn't seem to like anyone, but especially not Obama and tried to twist the President's support for gay Olympic athletes to him imposing a litmus test and why can't he just support all of our athletes like a real American?

Cal Thomas - a Fox News pundit who snidely commented that Rachel Maddow is herself an argument in favor of contraception, but actually had the sense to realize years ago that the fight against gay marriage was a losing one. He still thinks it's an indicator of the ruin of civilzation, though.

Allen West - the vile former Florida Congressman claimed that anti-gay workplace discrimination doesn't exist, defended calling homosexuality a chosen behavior, and fired an intern for being pro-gay. Naturally, he is now a Fox News contributor.

Corsi: Marriage Equality Will Lead To Polygamy, Pedophilia, Priests Charged With Hate Crimes: VIDEO

Jerome Corsi

Jerome Corsi, author and "resident crackpot" of WND, was one of the speakers attending the Eagle Forum's Collegians Summit in Washington DC. During his speech, he spouted many familiar arguments frequently used by homophobic conservatives, that marriage equality will inevitable lead to polygamy and pedophilia. 

"It's very hard, once these barriers are broken, once the logic of a Judeo-Christian faith is broken down, so that people no longer believe in fundamental issues such as sin...We begin heading towards a kind of Paganism that we've done before. Ancient Rome experimented with this."

Corsi also cautioned those in attendance that establishing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage would inevitably lead to hate crime charges against anyone "who preaches a Biblical, Judeo-Christian interpretation that anything except a marriage between a man and a woman is a sin."

Rachel Maddow And The Manlovian Candidate (VIDEO)


Jerome Corsi, a slavering paranoiac who could be mistaken for a serious journalist only in the bizarro universe of World Net Daily, became famous for insisting that Barack Obama is a secret foreigner. The stance became difficult to maintain after the president released his long-form birth certificate last year, and Corsi had to find a new schtick. Which he did. Barack Obama, Corsi has discovered, is a secret gay.

This is the sort of thing Rachel Maddow loves. No need to invent crazy rightwing strawmen with guys like Corsi roaming the web. AFTER THE JUMP, see Maddow's gleeful discussion of Corsi's ... theory? hypothesis? fantasy? What's the word, here?

Tea Party Leader Concocts Elaborate Gay Fantasy About Obama: VIDEO


NYT bestselling author and Tea Party conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi is out with a brand new piece of paranoid propaganda in which he tries to build the case that he was 'gay-married' to his Harvard Pakistani roommate:

His Pakistani roommate, whom we also went to Pakistan with, from Occidental, seems to have been, take a look at pictures of he and his roommate together, Obama had all these roommate pictures, seems to be sitting about on the guy’s lap. I’ve not seen a lot of roommate pictures where two guys are that chummy. The issue is again, not an issue that we want to raise in terms of criticizing the homosexuality or the bisexuality or whatever Obama’s true inclinations are, the issue is why does he have to lie about this too.

Have a laugh, AFTER THE JUMP...
