CARL PALADINO HAETS TEH GAYS, BUT DON'T WORRY, HE SAID HE WON'T BEAT THEM.

7:06 pm - 10/10/2010


Flame-throwing Republican Carl Paladino blasted gays Sunday - saying there is "nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual."

"I don't want [children] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid and successful option," Paladino said during a visit with Orthodox Jewish leaders in Brooklyn's Williamsburg.

Paladino, who is running for governor, told the conservative Jewish leaders he would veto a gay marriage bill if it's passed by the Legislature.

Paladino drew a distinction between himself and Democratic rival Andrew Cuomo, saying he boycotted the gay pride parade while Cuomo marched.

"I didn't march in the Gay Pride parade this year. My opponent did. There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That's not how God created us, and that's not the example that we should be showing our children - and certainly not in our schools," Paladino said.

He went on to zing Cuomo for allowing his daughters to also march in the gay parade.
"My opponent took his daughters to march in a homosexual parade," Paladino scoffed.


Asked whether such comments are appropriate given Saturday's stunning charge that nine members of a sadistic Bronx gang tortured a gay man and two gay teens, Paladino said he does not support gay bashing.
"Don't misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way. That would be a dastardly lie. My approach is live and let live," Paladino said.

Cuomo spokesman Josh Vlasto ripped Paladino as a homophobe "unfit to represent New York."
"Mr. Paladino's statement displays a stunning homophobia and a glaring disregard for basic equality," Vlasto said.

He said the comments "along with other views he has espoused make it clear that he is way out of the mainstream and is unfit to represent New York."

I'm from WNY, I've had family members involved in local politics for years, I've met this guy on social occasions, and I can safely say that Paladino is out of his fucking mind.

Also, family values dude with an illegitimate child. Argument? Invalid.

ngl, saw the ALL IN CAPSLOCK title and got excited that it was a mylaptopisevil post. V_V

brb, checking to see where this fucker is at so I can donate to his opponents.
juliet316 10th-Oct-2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
His opponent is Andrew Cuomo, Mario Cuomo's son.

Usually I'm against violence, but if someone punched this douchebag in his bigoted nasty mouth, I don't think I'd object too much.
erunamiryene 10th-Oct-2010 11:15 pm (UTC)
Oh, go fuck yourself (or your horse, since that's apparently your thing), Paladino.
klutzy_girl 10th-Oct-2010 11:17 pm (UTC)
Ugh. WTF is wrong this guy?

I'm glad his opponent took his daughters to a gay pride parade! That's awesome and I really hope that guy wins.

Don't misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way.

Except for calling them dysfunctional and keeping them from having full marriage rights and implying they should be kept away from kids. Other than THAT ...

Seriously. If by "in any way" you mean, "physically", then uh... you're still a douchebag, sir.
phrenolepsy 10th-Oct-2010 11:18 pm (UTC)
Aaand another example of why no matter how much concern I have about various Democratic candidates the Republican candidates usually manage to provide stellar demonstrations of why they're worse.

CARL PALADINO, YOU SENT AROUND RACIST PICTURES AND HORSE PORN. YOU DO NOT HAVE THE MORAL HIGH GROUND ON ANYTHING. SHUT YOUR FACE IMMEDIATELY.

But he works in construction, he had to send those emails!
juliet316 10th-Oct-2010 11:24 pm (UTC)
And this is why there will be another Cuomo in the NY Gov's mansion come around November.
pennieblack 10th-Oct-2010 11:24 pm (UTC)
That's not how God created us

Except, well, gay folks exist. Soooo~ I guess you're wrong?
popehippo 10th-Oct-2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
Seriously, this argument is LOL worthy. If God created all things to be perfect, then gays are perfect. But... if gays are NOT perfect, then God fucked something up and is NOT infallible.

*BRAIN BOOM*

fuck, it looks like I missed the deadline to register to vote here by like 3 days (just moved here and was debating keeping my registration in my home state). does anyone know for sure when the registration deadlines in NY are?

According to this site, the form had to be postmarked by October 8.

What does God have to do with anything? I was under the impression we didn't live in a theocracy.
joy_mora 10th-Oct-2010 11:59 pm (UTC)
I suggest we send Betty White to deal with that douche...

I am convinced that he and Sharron Angle are having a race to see who can be the tea party's most inhumane candidate.
angelofdeath275 11th-Oct-2010 12:23 am (UTC)
oh so you're one of the ~*GOOD HOMOPHOBES*~ since you won't physically hurt them, but will emotionally hurt them.
apocalypsos 11th-Oct-2010 12:31 am (UTC)
Exactly. They don't want gay people to hurt physically -- just emotionally, mentally, financially, and eternally in the fiery depths of Hell.
apocalypsos Also ...11th-Oct-2010 12:29 am (UTC)
... okay, you know what? I've been trying to find a reason to post this GIF for days now, so I'm posting it in anticipation of his inevitable caught-on-a-vacation-with-a-gay-horse-hired-to-"carry-his-luggage" scandal:

"I don't want [children] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid and successful option"

There are so many things wrong with this sentence (and this guy, period)... I so don't even.

CARL PALADINO GREW TO LEVEL 2.

CARL PALADINO WANTS TO LEARN "FLAMETHROWER". BUT CARL PALADINO CANNOT LEARN MORE THAN FOUR MOVES.

DELETE AN OLD MOVE?

CONGRATULATIONS! CARL PALADINO FORGOT "BASIC EMPATHY" AND LEARNED "FLAMETHROWER"!
blackjedii 11th-Oct-2010 09:01 pm (UTC)
IS HE EQUIPPED WITH HM 65: ASSHOLE?

I HEAR YOU NEED THAT FOR THE NEXT PRIMARY
squally_bunbun 11th-Oct-2010 01:14 am (UTC)
Ugh, I'm continually torn between "LOL Paladino" and "I can't wait until the election is over so Cuomo can just fucking win and this guy can GTFO the news."

But he probably won't go away, knowing my luck.
bowtomecha 11th-Oct-2010 01:29 am (UTC)
he made us dysfunctional enough to disobey an order not to eat a freaking apple, i think we've all got the dysfunctions thanks.
muppetfromhell 11th-Oct-2010 01:44 am (UTC)
What about functional homosexuals?
fofomazuzu 11th-Oct-2010 01:53 am (UTC)
I can finally use the gif I made:

Ugh, fuck him ten ways til Sunday. I'm pretty confident my state will elect Cuomo by a clear margin and this guy can go to hell. I greatly dislike that someone this vile is even in this race, though.

I don't know any NY republicans who are planning on voting for him (actually I know one but she's a hardcore anti-choicer and that's all she cares about) so I think that's a positive sign. We get republican governors now and then but they're usually of the mild variety.

"That's not how God created us, and that's not the example that we should be showing our children - and certainly not in our schools," Paladino said.

QUEER KIDS EXIST. QUEER KIDS EXIST. QUEER KIDS EXIST. CAN YOU FUCKING GET THAT THROUGH YOUR SKULL.

Regardless of "example," regardless of the level of homophobia of our parents, regardless of whether you give us equal rights, regardless of whether you succeed of keeping every last passing mention of TEH EVIL GAY away from us, QUEER KIDS EXIST, and we need role models too. We need to see ourselves represented positively, diversely, and three-dimensionally, in fiction and in life. We need to see living breathing proof that we can grow up to have normal, happy lives even though we're queer. We need to know that we can have a future that's worth waiting for. And if nothing else, we need to know that we are not dirty broken shameful things to be hidden away. We need to know that, contrary to your fucked-up beliefs, Carl Paladino, we need protecting not from ourselves but from people like you.

Given the epidemic of QUEER KIDS KILLING THEMSELVES, these are KIND OF IMPORTANT THINGS TO MAKE SURE WE KNOW.
la_sabre 11th-Oct-2010 03:09 am (UTC)
Now see, these kids aren't ~really gay~ they've just been brainwashed by their elitist, librul, gay-recruiter teachers into thinking that they are...

This is just a wild guess, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't care about the epidemic of queer kids committing suicide. :C
