MSDNC — a network that is trusted by an amazing 5% of Americans (which is about the same as the percentage of Americans with serious mental illness [6%] which I am sure is just a coincidence)— is shouting that “Rick Perry thinks being a homersexual is exactly the same as being an alcoholic.”
No. He didn’t say that. What Rick Perry [who’s the Republican Governor of the state that’s created by itself more than a third of all the new jobs in the United States over the last decade) actually said is much less… incendiary.
“Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”
People in control of their own sexuality; what a radical and bigoted concept. /sarc
The ironic part is, he is echoing exactly what the gay left has been shrieking for years, “Gayness is genetic.” But suddenly it’s bigoted to say that; or, more like, politically useful to call that observation (Homosexuality is genetic, just as many other things are genetic, bigotry.)
But the left will continue with these smears because they work well on their low-information voter target audience. They managed to make millions of idiot leftists think Sarah Palin said “I can see Russia from my house,” and believe Mitt Romney was going to outlaw tampons, so it’s pretty much that all the idiot lefty blogs will be running with “Rick Perry said homosexuality is like alcoholism,” and all the left-wing mouth-breathers will be saying, “Yup, rightwingnutjobs claimin’ homersexuals is all alcoholics, or somethin’ I hates me some rightwingnutjobs.”
