Right-wing school board member wants gays to commit suicide

Some smartass keeps calling me a bigot in the comment section of this blog because I called him out on the fact that he supports politicians who hate gays. It's the right-wingers' latest strategy: Call somebody a bigot because they call out a conservative for their bigotry. (Kind of like when the Tea Party thought police called their critics racist for pointing out the Tea Parties' racism.)

Naturally, he hasn't condemned the moron in this story.

In the Midland school district in Arkansas, right-wing school board member Clint McCance declared on Facebook that gay students should commit suicide. McCance's post reads:

"Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves [sic] because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE."

Later, when somebody challenged McCance's remark, McCance replied:

"No because being a fag doesn't give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that shit to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother me if they keep it to thereselves [sic]. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it."

Afterward, McCance said:

"I would disown my kids they were gay. They will not be welcome at my home or in my vicinity. I will absolutely run them off. Of course my kids will know better. My kids will have solid christian beliefs. See it infects everyone."

Right-wing bigots serving on American school boards isn't exactly new. But what's striking lately is that now right-wingers aren't even hiding their fascism. They make comments like this out in the open and expect to be rewarded for it.

It's actually a form of cheap elitism. Clint McCance thinks his views should carry more weight than others' just because he has a powerful position in his town. According to McCance, commoners be damned.

I wonder how long it will be before McCance demands a public apology from his critics. It's a bit like how Rand "Stompy" Paul's goons keep demanding an apology from the woman whose head they repeatedly stomped on. (The way Stompy's thugs act reminds me of all that "outraged by the outrage" business.)


  1. "Hate gays" translates into "does not support gay marriage." Most black voters oppose gay marriage. Are they bigots?

  2. If your literacy skills were up to par, you'd see that this article has nothing to do with gay marriage. It was about a right-wing school board member who hates gays, not about gay marriage.

  3. I wasn't referring to this article. I was referring to the fact that you had literally no evidence that Dan Webster hated gays other then opposition to gay marriage.

  4. "Rand Paul is such a joke that I don't see how he can win in November,"

    Still hold on to that assumption?
