Video: Congressman Kingston filibusters with canards b/c he has no acceptable answer to student's marriage concerns

by Jeremy Hooper

The audio is hard to hear, but if you listen in closely to the answers Congressman Jack Kinston (R-GA1) provides to a University of Georgia student's (sometimes pointed, glib) questions about marriage equality, you will hear a whole flurry of those popular far-right talking points.

"Slippery slope" to the wholly separate issue of polygamy? Check.

Fears about the marital non-requirement that is procreation (something that is not logically affected by legalizing the same-sex partnerships that have existed for all time)? Check.

Claim that voting on minority civil rights is a good thing to do "in a democracy"? Check.

Contrived "culture war" positions with an utter sense of untenability, which will likely fall away before this student reaches his thirtieth birthday? Check, check, check.
