Video: Amateur outrage

by Jeremy Hooper

Here it is: The first official condemnation of the Iowa ruling has been posted to Youtube:

Ranty. But in his defense, his logic is only marginally less sound than the arguments that our opposition's lawyers are paid to make.

vermont, iowa, masschusetts, connticut [YT]

*And of course he's wrong about Iowa being the fourth state. Vermont has passed a bill, but it has not yet been signed/vetoed-then-veto-overidden.

Your thoughts

The way he lets sentences trail off as he stares into space makes him seem like he's on salvia.

Didn't get a chance to watch the vid yet, but I did read something else that said Iowa is the fourth state to approve gay marriage. This is true.

California approved it, but we all know how that turned out! Oy...

Really having to think this is some half ass attempt at humor. Either that or he is part of the Moral majority stoner division.

Everybody go on there and flag it for hate speech!

Posted by: Attmay | Apr 3, 2009 2:14:56 PM

No, no- please DO NOT go and flag it as hate speech. Arguments like this need to be heard, because they are weak. If this guy gets silenced, then he's a victim of the gay rights movement, but if he is heard, then he's just an idiot. LET'S LET HIM BE AN IDIOT.

And of course the coward turns off comments on the video.

I flagged it. I think people have heard enough from the bigots to know they're all fucked in the head.

Interesting - His diatribe is so incoherent that it truly doesn't give the opposition any further legitimacy towards their arguments - especially with every sentence trailing off into nothing, his keen ability to mention every component of the female anatomy as the justification for disapproving gay marriage, etc. It's all I can do to keep from rolling my eyes at this man's ever-so painful attempt to state his case against gay marriage. It's laughable, at best.

As irritating as his comments are, I think you should go easy on him. He seems to have some kind of disability---maybe mild autism or something?? If you watch his other videos you'll see what I'm talking about.

I think Brad Sanders might be right. I watched a few of his other videos and I think he does seem to have some sort of disability. It's hard to be angry at someone who doesn't know any better. I actually feel sorry for the guy.

Posted by: Adrian Acosta | Apr 3, 2009 4:48:55 PM

I agree. This guy is deprived, one way or another. Cut him some slack. He needs help, not condemnation or abuse.

Posted by: greg | Apr 3, 2009 7:47:40 PM

All the gay bashers need "help". But I'm not giving it to them.

Mental disability is no excuse for bigotry. He's probably just plain stupid.

This guy is great! Totally engaging and to-the-point. "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" twice - TWICE - in the same youtube video.

I wish I was clever enough to coin that phrase :(

Posted by: DN | Apr 4, 2009 12:58:04 AM

Awww, poor closeted guy. What was that phrase I've seen floating around? So deep in the closet, he's having a adventures in Narnia. He also did seem high on something... What really worried me, was how upset he was. It was like we burned his favorite teddy bear. I hope he doesn't hurt himself.
