Video of TX Gov. Rick Perry: Gay scouting is like slavery
From Joe. My. God.
Governor Rick Perry must like the taste of shoe because he’s constantly putting his foot in his mouth. This time with a remarkably oversimplified anecdote about Sam Houston’s reluctance to leave the Union over slavery.
In Rick’s mind, this is the same kind of inspired leadership needed by the Boy Scouts. He calls on the discriminatory organization to resist the forces of “flavor of the month pop culture” that would undermine boyhood, manhood, and ‘Mericanhood.
Side note: Isn’t Perry pro-secession?
I really don’t have anything else to say about this. Or I do, but I would rather not pull out any more of my hair. Video after the jump.
